Nightsisters are characters from the Star Wars galaxy. They first appear in The Courtship of Princess Leia by Dave Wolverton. A rogue Jedi was exiled on the planet of Dathomir; she ws the one tht learned how to tamed the rancors and for her abilities she became the ruler in the prison planet (classified in this way by the Jedi Order of the Old Republic). Allya, the exile rogue jedi, taught to her daughters how to call the Force by rituals and chantings, years laters all of the females in Dathomir continued practicing Allys's teachings. Many clan were formed in Dathomir and they fought against to each other to rule the planet. Gethzerion was the firt witch that learned how to call the Force without singing or chanting or doing rituals, just like a Force-user (Jedi and Sith). Gethzerion fought against her mother and she was exiled from her clan, in this way she formed her own clan, practicing the most dark spells. The clan that Gethzerion formed was called the Nightsisters. When the Emperor discovered the Nightsisters, he interdicted (stopped all entry or exit of) the planet of Dathomir, because he feared the Nightsisters' power and did not want them leaving the planet. The Nightsisters wanted to get off of Dathomir so they could wreak havoc throughout the galaxy. When Han Solo, Leia Organa, Luke Skywalker, and Prince Isolder landed there, the Nightsisters attempted to seize the Millennium Falcon and attacked the Singing Mountain clan of Force-witches to get it. In the resulting battle, the transport containing most, if not all, of the Nightsisters was blown up.
