* BadassGay: She was in love with a fellow Nightsister, who was butchered by the Separatists, and she's a powerful user of the darkside.

However, her worldview is shook upon her encounter with former Jedi Padawan Cal Kestis.



* DarkMagicalGirl: She is a textbook model for this trope: A girl who is very powerful in dark magick with an tragic background (as the SoleSurvivor of her people's genocide), she is lead on and manipulated by an EvilMentor who is only seeking to exploit her for her talents. After the truth is revealed, she teams up with TheHero and ultimately joins his side.

* LockedOutOfTheLoop: She has had virtually no information about the galaxy beyond Dathomir until Cal came, with Taron Malicos deliberately misleading her. As such, when she is told "the Empire" is after what Cal is looking for, she asks ''what'' Empire, not even having the slightest idea about the state of the other planets. She also can't speak Binary (meaning she can't understand [[RobotBuddy BD-1]]), but that isnít as odd, as other characters in the franchise have the same difficulty.
* {{Necromancer}}: Shows herself capable of performing the resurrection incantation not unlike Daka, which she uses to turn her many fallen sisters into her forces.
* NotSoAboveItAll: While she is usually no-nonsense and all business, when Greez seems especially nervous and offers to cook the crew of the ''Mantis'' steaks, she notes that she likes them rare, even stopping him from walking away specifically to tell him that. Evidently hanging around the ''Mantis'' has an effect on her, as she later jokes that she needs a sacrifice for a cloaking ritual, and that one of Greez's arms will do nicely before telling him not to be so serious about her talk.
* NotSoDifferent: To Cal. Both of them survived a purge that annihilated their people and were left alone to fend for themselves as a result. While she points out that Jedi and Nightsisters don't mix well together, they go along with each other as survivors.

* TookALevelInKindness: Not that she is a bad person by any means, but the longer she spends time around people who arenít [[EvilMentor Taron Malicos]] or from Dathomir, the more relaxed and nicer she becomes. By the end of the game, she outright gives Cal a hug when she is sure he is okay.

Added DiffLines:

* DeadpanSnarker: Once she joins the ''Mantis'' crew, she shows some significant shades of this. For example, after explaining to the group the intense training regimen she underwent to properly control her magick:
-->'''Greez:''' Oh, yeah! It's like that time I ate 10 pounds of Umbaran flank steak to get into a high-end cantina.\\
'''Merrin:''' Yes. My magick is just like eating steak.

Added DiffLines:

* BadassGay: She was in love with a fellow Nightsister, who was butchered by the Separatists, and she's a powerful user of the darkside.


* BigDamnHeroes: During Cal and Malicos' duel, she intervenes half-way through on Cal's behalf and helps him defeat the Dark Jedi with her distractions.



* DarkIsNotEvil: She is an Nightsister, wielding all those sinister powers and looking like a sinister figure, but she is ultimately a good person.

to:

* DarkIsNotEvil: She is an Nightsister, wielding all those sinister powers and looking like a sinister figure, being very creepy specially when introduced, but she is revealed to have been misguided and ultimately is a good person.

Added DiffLines:

* GoodCostumeSwitch: She is wearing a hooded cape with gold jewelry across her face when she first appears, and is certainly hostile to Cal due to believing the Jedi were responsible for annihilating the Nightsisters. After figuring out the truth and Malicos was lying to her, she has ditched these robes for a more simpler outfit (albeit of the same color scheme as her original clothes).


Added DiffLines:

* VoiceOfTheLegion: She can pull this off, at least during a scene when she sees Malicos is revealed to have lied to her.


* BadassGay: She was in love with a fellow Nightsister, who was butchered by the Separatists.


Added DiffLines:

* KillEmAll: General Grievous' attack on Dathomir in "Massacre" left the Nightsisters with only two survivors (aside from at least one who was offworld at the time). At the end of ''Son of Dathomir'', Mother Talzin is killed and it is implied that all of the Nightbrothers except for Darth Maul were wiped out.

* CavalryOfTheDead: The Nightsisters have a "[[AnimateDead Chant of Resurrection]]", which allows the user the raise their dead in the graveyard. Apparently Old Daka was the only one who knew how to perform the spell.

Added DiffLines:

* ChildProdigy: An ImpliedTrope. Despite being very young compared to most Nightsisters, she has access to skills only seen with [[TeleportersAndTransporters Talzin]] or [[{{Necromancer}} Daka]].


* EldritchLocation: While there have been numerous places strong in the force and especially the dark side of the force that can mess with people, particularly force sensitives,Dathomir is one of the few instances of a planet being like this. Not only is Dathomir a planet with a tremendous concentration of force energy, due to the history of its people using dark side powers and rituals, its an entire world that acts as a dark side locus. Seriously, go to any part of Dathomir and it's like Halloween.

* DyingSpecies: As of the end of ''Fallen Order'', Shelish, Merrin and Darth Maul are the only known remaining members of the species, and it would seem the Dathomirian species is now on the verge of extinction. There is still a small but indeterminate number of Nightbrothers in the planet and some continuation of the Dathomirian species in Shelish's daughter, Deathstick, but with her father's species unknown, chances are that any remaining pure-blooded Dathomirians are going to be genetically thinned out over time.

* InsistentTerminology: Greez calls her a witch upon meeting her for the first time and she immediately says to refer to her as "Nightsister" instead.
* LastOfHerKind: At the very least, she is the last one still living in Dathomir. Seeing that Cal finds a potential means to bring about the next generation of Jedi, as he himself says, just serves to make her sadder, as she knows "nothing will bring back [her] people."
