Duel of the aprrentices by Raikoh-illust Duel of the aprrentices by Raikoh-illust
Here's something that I have been told to draw many times by different people, to draw Ahsoka battling against Starkiller. And, I decided to finally do it. However, when it came to the, I decided to draw Ahsoka in her Sith form that I created a long time ago, [link] and even gave her a sith name, Darth Carcharadon. And Starkiller here is drawn in his Sith Stalker form cause I was too lazy to draw him with his face showing.

Ahsoka gives him a good fight, but Starkiller wins without question.

Not "without question". But he would win, there's a YouTube video that explains it.

This is an awesome piece. Who knows it might even happen at some point in the new show, "Rebels".

Ahsoka as we last saw her in The Clone Wars when she was quitting the Jedi Order, would get curbstomped by Starkiller as he was in the games - but then Ahsoka as we last saw her was a 16 year old Padawan and still nowhere near her prime yet.

By the time Starkiller is on the go, Ahsoka would be about 30 and could be a true powerhouse herself, fully capable of standing against him in battle. Epic showdown.

(It would also be cool if she turned to the Dark Side in the show.)

Now this is an interesting idea. I like the concept especially how they're wearing similar armor. Also like Vader in the background watching. Great job.

I love this image, I think the only way it could be more epic if you had Starkiller in his full Sith lord armor like in the Ultimate Sith edition of the game. Other then that I love it.

I can see this happening in an alternative Dark Side ending. Starkiller does strike down and destroy the Emperor and, after having beaten down Vader, feels he's made him pay enough for being literally stabbed in the back, even if it was all an act to get the Emperor to lower his guard. Kota and the senators are killed. Vader becomes the new Emperor. At his right hand is Lord Starkiller, the son he never had and his second apprentice. At Vader's left hand is Darth Carcharadon, Ahsoka, who Vader found after Order 66 and brought into his service. She still hated the Jedi Order for turning on her so quickly and casting her out when she was framed. At the end of the ordeal, the only person she trusted anymore was him. That is why she doesn't blame him for his part in eliminating the Jedi. If anything, she wants to help him finish them off. 

When Ahsoka joins with Vader, she's still in her mid-teens. When Vader takes Galen Marek and dubs him Starkiller, he's only ten. When Vader isn't able to train Starkiller himself, as the Emperor is still keeping a close eye on him, Ahsoka takes care of the training, mirroring the way Vader trained her by being encouraging, yet also adhering to the strict standards of the Sith. Over the years as Galen enters into adulthood, he develops feelings for Ahsoka, as she's the only female he really knows and is around. And Ahsoka, who always had feelings for Anakin but never acted on them because she knew how deeply he loved Padme, eventually decides to allow Galen to explore these feelings with her, wondering if her own growing feelings for the young man is her own way of trying to move past her feelings for Anakin, knowing he'll never be able to return them. 

Linking this story history with the picture above, Ahsoka and Galen are both Vader's most loyal and powerful agents and officers, as well as quietly lovers, their feelings for each other having only grown intensely over time. They bond over duels and see them instead as foreplay. Right now, they are on the planet Dagobah, inside the Force-Nexus of the planet, fighting each other to align the planet's Force Nexus to the Dark Side of The Force and one of them. Starkiller has already done so with Felucia and is confident he'll add another planet to fuel his, and through him Vader's, power. However, Ahsoka, the better lightsaber wielder, is not making this easy for him. And he has to admit, the battle and her armor are both distracting him, making him silently wish that Vader would leave so he and Ahsoka could end the duel and celebrate what will likely be her victory in a much more private way. 

Thanks for the inspiration for this and keep up the great work, Rai. And for anyone that wants to adopt this story and make it into a fanfic, feel free. I only ask you post a link so I can read it.
