- "Then, I will begin the chant of resurrection!"
- ―Daka to Mother Talzin
The oldest and wisest of the Nightsisters clan, Daka's knowledge of the magics was unprecedented. She resided in the Nightsister fortress, the settlement of the united covens under Clan Mother Talzin. Her secret lair was in a hidden cave, a place that could only be entered with a spell.
When the Separatists launched attacks on Dathomir, the Nightsisters were outnumbered by General Grievous's droid forces, Mother Talzin retreated into the depths of the witches' lair and called upon Old Daka for help. Daka used an ancient incantation to summon the dead from the Nightsisters' graveyard, supporting their number with zombie hordes.
Despite the intervention of Daka's magical aid to the Nightsisters, the Separatist forces ended up outmatching the Sisters. Old Daka was killed by Grievous quickly with a stab through the stomach, and was about to do the same to Talzin, but she narrowly escaped. With her death, resulting in the destruction of every Nightsister Zombie—the spell would only last as long as its caster was alive- the coven had lost one of its most knowledgeable sisters. Talzin had lived and she fled far away on Dathomir, seeking out vengeance.
