In Star Wars Rebels, Star Wars fans are introduced to an older version of Star Wars: The Clone Wars’ Ahsoka Tano. Working as an intelligence operative of the Rebellion, Ahsoka takes on the codename Fulcrum.
Now, Star Wars: The Clone Wars season 7 offers fans the story behind the infamous codename and it looks like the title has been around years before Ahsoka worked as an agent in Star Wars Rebels (via Screen Rant).
In episode 9 of The Clone Wars, “ Old Friends Not Forgotten,” viewers get to see Ahsoka preparing for her battle against Maul. Gearing up for the assault on Mandalore, Ahsoka and Bo-Katan request for back-up forces from the Grand Army of the Republic. Ahsoka needs the extra manpower when she goes charging into battle to take back Mandalore from Maul, and so the former Jedi Padawan arranges a meeting with Anakin Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi.
Ahsoka and Bo-Katan arrive at the meeting with the Jedi using a secret frequency along with the Fulcrum codename – the episode reveals that Fulcrum is only known to a handful of people in the Rebellion, namely Onderon Rebel Saw Gerrera, Anakin Skywalker, Ahsoka Tahno, and the creator of the codename.
This revelation could lead to Ahsoka’s appearance in Lucasfilm’s Cassian Andor live-action series. There have been rumors saying that Rosario Dawson has been cast in multiple Star Wars Disney+ series, and the Rogue One spinoff could very well be one of the shows that Ahsoka appears in.
Star Wars: The Clone Wars is available for streaming on Disney+.
