There has been a ton of speculation about who really is the mystery Inquisitor appearing in AHSOKA named Marrock. Is he a character we already know? Could it be the Starkiller from THE FORCE UNLEASHED? We want to know so the first place to look is at the talent providing the voice for Marrock. But who is that individual? We take a line of Marrock dialog from the series and run it through the RFR Sound Lab to try to deconstruct the vocal processing and identify the voice actor. You'll want to hear the results! Plus more from AHSOKA including fan reaction and analysis of the cool rock tune heard in the first episode as Sabine bolted from Lothal City, "Igyah Kah".  Plus, we feature a massive STAR WARS In Pop Culture segment fueled by your suggestions.
