Who Is Reva In Kenobi TV Show? Star Wars Inquisitor Explained

Published

on

Lucasfilm’s Obi-Wan Kenobi Disney+ TV series will introduce Reva, an Inquisitor who has been tasked to hunt down the Jedi Master. The Obi-Wan Kenobi TV series is set during the Dark Times of the Empire’s reign, a period when the light of the Jedi appeared to have been extinguished forever. This was the age of the Sith – and their enforcers, the Inquisitors, who were tasked to ensure any survivors of Order 66 were hunted down and killed.

Operating under the supervision of Darth Vader himself, the Sith watched the galaxy for any hint of the Force. They understood the greatest weakness of the Jedi; that their compassion made them ill-suited for a time of darkness, making them unable to simply stand by. It is the nature of light to shine, and the Inquisitors’ job was to watch for the faintest pinprick of light, and then snuff it out. In addition to this, they were tasked to look for any sign of new Force-sensitives children. They kidnapped these Younglings on behalf of Emperor Palpatine himself, transporting them to the planet Arkanis where they were indoctrinated into the dark side. The Emperor intended these children to become his pawns, with their power focused on helping him catch visions of the future so he could never be overthrown.

The Inquisitors ensured Order 66 survivors like Obi-Wan Kenobi could never live in peace, no matter how remote the world they chose to hide on. It seems that, 10 years after the events of Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith, Obi-Wan found himself crossing paths with one of these Inquisitors. Here’s everything known about Reva to date.

The Jedi were never meant to be warriors, and as such the Clone Wars exposed them to a level of conflict and violence they were ill-equipped to deal with. Some Jedi broke under the experience, while others faltered; these Jedi were of particular interest to Palpatine, because they could potentially be captured and transformed into members of Darth Vader’s Inquisitorius. Reva was apparently one of these Jedi, although the circumstances of her breaking are currently a mystery; it’s unknown whether she left the Jedi Order during the Clone Wars, falling prey to Palpatine, or whether she was captured during Order 66. Reva was christened Third Sister, and she traveled the galaxy performing the Emperor’s will, reporting in directly to Darth Vader himself.

It’s actually quite surprising to see Reva referred to by name, because the Inquisitors tended to go by their official titles – such as, in Reva’s case, “Third Sister.” This allowed them to cast aside their previous lives, in much the same way a Sith chooses a new identity for themselves after they fall to the dark side, but in the case of the Inquisitors it also dehumanizes them. Reva breaks the pattern for the Inquisitors in an interesting way, therefore, and no doubt the Obi-Wan Kenobi Disney+ series will explain why. It’s possible there’s a simple reason; because she is recognized by Obi-Wan Kenobi, and he refuses to address her by her title as an Inquisitor, instead trying to redeem her.

Obi-Wan Kenobi fled to Tatooine because he rightly deduced Darth Vader himself would never wish to set foot on his homeworld again, but the Jedi Master failed to realize the Emperor would establish a network of agents who would keep an eye out for Jedi. Various Star Wars tie-ins have already suggested Obi-Wan was unable to simply stand by and watch as evil flourished on Tatooine, especially when an event called the Great Drought occurred; his actions even caused Jabba the Hutt to hire the Wookiee bounty hunter Black Krrsantan to kill him, and Obi-Wan flourished a lightsaber during his battle with the bounty hunter. Word of a potential Jedi on Tatooine seems to have reached the Inquisitors, with Reva sent to investigate. The Obi-Wan Kenobi trailer confirms she will initially confront Owen Lars himself, bringing her dangerously close to Luke Skywalker. This presumably forces Obi-Wan to step out of the shadows, hoping to serve as a distraction.

Hayden Christensen is returning to Star Wars as Darth Vader in the Obi-Wan Kenobi Disney+ TV show, and there are reportedly two duels between Obi-Wan and Darth Vader. It’s reasonable to assume Reva reports an encounter with Obi-Wan Kenobi to her master, leading Vader to leave his fortress on Mustafar in the hopes of killing his former Master. Thus Reva is not merely a dangerous antagonist in her own right; she is also likely to be the one who initiates the main conflict in the Obi-Wan Kenobi series.
