Eldra Kaitis Respect Thread

This is my second respect thread, this time covering the Jedi Padawan Eldra Kaitis from the Star Wars: Darth Maul (2017) comic. I was inspired to make this after reading the comic recently, as Eldra reminded me of my favorite character, Ahsoka Tano. Eldra Kaitis seems like a strong-willed individual that would have had a bright future in the Jedi Order if she hadn't been killed by Darth Maul, but alas, at least she showcased some serious skill in her final battle. So I hope you enjoy my second, albeit very small, respect thread!

I also recommend reading this respect thread in blog format.

Lightsaber Ability

Eldra Kaitis might have been a Soresu user, as Darth Maul's inner musings regarding Eldra Kaitis's fighting strategy revealed her having a very similar approach to dueling as Soresu practitioners.

She defends--yes--but I can see it in her eyes... in her movements... Eldra Kaitis is biding her time... waiting for the perfect instant in which to strike.

Darth Maul mused how if his concentration lapsed, Eldra Kaitis would strike him down.

A lapse in concentration... one misstep... and she'll cut me down.
