Anakin’s Not Alone: Two Other Force-Born Characters Revealed in ‘The Acolyte’

Anakin’s Not Alone: Two Other Force-Born Characters Revealed in ‘The Acolyte’

In the latest twist from Star Wars: The Acolyte, it turns out Anakin Skywalker isn’t the only character with a mysterious, Force-driven origin.

The Disney+ series, set over a hundred years before The Phantom Menace, has revealed intriguing connections to the iconic storyline we all know and love.

WARNING: Spoilers below for The Acolyte

Episode 3 of The Acolyte introduces us to twin characters, Osha and Mae, whose birth may be linked to Anakin’s miraculous conception. The episode dives into their backstory, showing that they were raised by Dathomirian witches, who seem to have used mystical powers to create them. This echoes Anakin’s origin story, where his mother, Shmi Skywalker, claimed there was no father involved in his birth.

A key scene in the episode shows Mother Aniseya claiming she created the twins, even though another character, Mother Quirrel, carried them. This suggests that Osha and Mae’s creation was far from ordinary, much like Anakin’s.

This revelation ties into a larger narrative explored in a 2019 Marvel Comics’ Star Wars issue, where Darth Vader sees a vision of Palpatine manipulating midi-chlorians to impregnate Shmi Skywalker. While this comic didn’t spell out every detail, it hinted at the mysterious and powerful ways the Force can influence life.

With The Acolyte confirming that Anakin isn’t alone in his unique origins, the series opens up new avenues for exploring the mystical aspects of the Star Wars universe. Fans can look forward to uncovering more secrets about the Force and its role in the creation of life as the series progresses.
