STAR WARS: THE LAST JEDI: Supreme Leader Snoke's Jewellery May Reveal The Villain's Surprising Origin Story

Looking for more answers about Supreme Leader Snoke after seeing the villain in Star Wars: The Last Jedi? Well, a tie-in book for the Rian Johnson helmed release may answer some lingering fan questions...

WARNING: Major Spoilers for Star Wars: The Last Jedi can be found below!

Ever since he was first introduced in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, fans have been anxious to learn more about the identity of Supreme Leader Snoke. Unfortunately, those answers didn't come in The Last Jedi and the villain's past remains a mystery to us as a result (something which has infuriated fans who came up with theories ranging from him being a clone to a resurrected Grand Moff Tarkin). 

Well, the Visual Dictionary for Star Wars: The Last Jedi reveals some intriguing details about Snoke's ring, reiterating that he's not a Sith Lord and that that lineage ended with the demise of Darth Vader. He is, however, powerful in the Dark Side of the Force and it seems his origins lie in the Unknown Regions of the Galaxy. A recent tie-in novel pointed to that being the case and his Praetorian Guard are actually described as hailing from the same place so that adds a lot of weight to that particular theory. 

So, what's the deal with his ring? Made from obsidian mined from the catacombs beneath Darth Vader's castle on Mustafar, it's etched with glyphs of the Dwartii, the four sages who serves as somewhat controversial lawgivers and philosophers from early in the history of the Galactic Republic. 


Braata, Faya, Sistros, and Yanjon could be seen as statues in the office of Chancellor Palpatine in Star Wars: Attack of the Clones and the future Emperor made no secret of his fondness for them. Braata was a big fan of studying the Dark Side so a new possible theory is that he's actually Supreme Leader Snoke. Sure, that means he'd be over 1000 years old but that would explain his twisted and aged body.

Then again, Snoke might just be a fan of them as Palpatine was but whatever the answer may be, you have to hope we'll learn more about the villain's past somewhere down the line. What do you think?
