Dathomirians are humanoid beings who reside on the planet Dathomir. The female Dathomirians are all members of the Nightsister Clan, a group that employs various powers derived from the dark side of the Force. They also rule over the Nighbrothers, a group of Zabrak whom they employ as assassins and mates. The clan was largely wiped out by the Separatists on the orders of the Sith due to their previous attempts on the life of Count Dooku.


Dathomirian females tended to have pale gray or white skin and usually blue or silvery eyes, and tall and thin bodies. Their male counterparts more closely resembled Zabrak, muscular and powerfully-built who sported skin patterns similar to Sith tattoos and vestigial cranial horns. Females tended to exhibit a certain athleticism, while males usually possessed powerful strength. All Dathomirian specimens were Force-sensitive, though this was due to the genetic Forceful component of the female Human Nightsisters that helped breed the subspecies.

Some females among the Witches of Dathomir were Dathomiri Zabraks with the vestigial horns and characteristics of the Zabrak species.

Notable Dathomirians include Asajj Ventress and Mother Talzin.
