Deathstick was a female assassin and daughter of the Nightsister Shelish, active during the reign of the Galactic Empire. She originally started out as a street criminal, but – once she became known for her skills as an assassin – few later sought an audience with her. Deathstick believed in acting because it was possible, not for honor or money.
The mysterious woman known as Deathstick was the daughter of Shelish, a Nightsisterwitch who had left her homeworld of Dathomir long before her people were slaughtered. Growing up in the Anoat sector of the galaxy‘s Outer Rim Territories, Deathstick began her criminal career as a hired assassin. Through a series of spectacularly public murders of gang leaders, she ended up moving into the drug trade. At some point, she had a run-in with the Galactic Empire that cost her a great deal of her face, prompting her to wear a mask that only left her eyes visible.
