Most of the past life of this Grand Inquisitor was shrouded in mystery to most, other than he'd been a dark Force-Sensitive Pau’an male, tasked by Darth Vader to hunt down any and all surviving Jedi and young Force-Sensitive children. In the time of the Jedi Order, the Inquisitor was an Jedi Knight in the Jedi Order who served as a Temple Guard. After his fall to the dark side, this Imperial Inquisitor was responsible for hunting down then eliminating all Jedi during their Jedi Purge. He personally served the Sith Order, from whom he received his orders, and in his past having been a Jedi member for the Jedi Order was intimately familiar with the records of the Jedi Temple. He was an intimidating figure, dressed in all black and wielding an red double bladed Lightsaber. The Grand Inquisitor had numerous confrontations against an Jedi Kanan Jarrus and Ezra Bridger.


Jedi Temple Guard

The Pau'an male who would one day become Imperial Grand Inquisitor originated from the planet of Utapau, where he was born over fifteen years prior to an Invasion of Naboo. At some point, he'd became Jedi Knight within that Jedi Order. As Jedi Knight, he'd served in that Jedi Temple Guard, a group of Jedi tasked with defending Coruscant Temple. During a Clone War, in an period of protests against the Jedi Council for continued leadership over an conflict between Republic and Separatists, an bombing at that Jedi temple rocked the Jedi. Future Grand Inquisitor was one of the guards who had led a framed culprit Ahsoka Tano from the Temple, and she was ultimately brought to trial before Chancellor Palpatine. He was one of their Guard who escorted the true culprit Barriss Offee into the trial, where Barriss admitted all crimes and was subsequently taken away.

Imperial Grand Inquisitor

Servant of the Dark Sith Lords

The events with Offee and Tano left the future Grand Inquisitor feeling disaffected, and he'd lost faith in their Jedi Order. This left him susceptible to the pull of the Dark Side of the Force, and ultimately, at some point, he'd did fall to it. At the end of the Clone War, current Supreme Chancellor Palpatine, in truth the Dark Lord of the Sith, turned the Republic into the Galactic Empire and declared himself Emperor of the galaxy. The Inquisitor came into the service of the Empire and the Sith, though he was not a Sith himself. He was commanded by Lord Vader, who was once Anakin Skywalker before his own fall to the Dark Side. The Dark Lord of the Sith tasked their Grand Inquisitor with hunting down then eliminating any and all Jedi who had survived Order 66 and that Jedi Purge, the order given to the Clone Troopers of a Grand Army for the Republic to destroy the Jedi Order. To accomplish this task, Grand Inquisitor was trained in the ways of the Dark Side of the Force and had studied the records within the Jedi Temple in order to better know his Jedi surviving enemies.

At some point, he was appointed the rank Grand Inquisitor and led the Inquisitorius. Among these Inquisitors were dark warriors such as the Fifth Brother, the Sixth Brother, the Seventh Sister and the Eighth Brother. Like this Imperial Grand Inquisitor, these Inquisitors had their roots in the Jedi Order. In the years prior to the Battle of Yavin, the Grand Inquisitor was contacted by Darth Vader, who told the Jedi hunter that their Emperor had foreseen a new threat rising to challenge his rule, young Force-Sensitive children who could not be allowed to follow in the footsteps of the Jedi. Darth Vader had ordered their Imperial Grand Inquisitor to hunt these individuals down and either make them serve the Empire or destroy them, along with any Jedi survivors who could train them. With the orders of the Emperor given, the Inquisitor told Vader that it would be done. One method that the Inquisitor used to find these children was to evaluate cadets at the Imperials Academies who met a certain set of criteria, one that indicated their Force-Sensitive status and connection to the Force.

Over a decade after the rise of the Empire, reports came to the Grand Inquisitor's attention of the group of rebels who'd operated on Lothal, in particular the leader of the group wielding a Lightsaber and revealed himself to be a Jedi survivor. Responding to the reports of a Jedi on Lothal, the Inquisitor relentlessly pursued Kanan Jarrus and a Jedi Padawan Ezra Bridger. Grand Inquisitor was far more powerful than either, yet both repeatedly escaped him. But that only made for the more interesting challenge. Grand Inquisitor took an active interest in eliminating all the rebel crew of the starship Ghost, but particularly the Jedi and his Padawan. He encountered these two Jedi on a number of occasions, including the duel on Stygeon Prime and a duel on the asteroid base Fort Anaxes. After the Grand Inquisitor and the government of Lothal, from which the rebels operated, were consistently unable to eliminate the rebels, Grand Moff Wilhuff Tarkin did arrive on Lothal to hunt for the rebels. Together, they captured Kanan and hoped to use him to learn more about a larger rebellion movement that was operating in the galaxy. They brought Kanan to Mustafar, where rebels mounted the rescue mission.

Demise of the Grand Inquisitor

After several encounters, the Inquisitor had finally captured the rebel Jedi, Kanan. Taking him aboard a Star Destroyer to Mustafar, he tortured Kanan for information, but the Jedi would not break. Finally, the crew of Ghost came to rescue the Jedi, pulling off an impossible mission to board the Star Destroyer and to break Kanan out. Ezra, Kanan’s Jedi Padawan learner, freed Kanan from his cell, but leaving would not be easy. Grand Inquisitor was ready for their final battle, eagerly anticipating the chance to destroy Jedi master then apprentice together. After the Inquisitor seemingly killed the younger Jedi, Kanan became calm and confident. For he had nothing left to fear, then expertly destroyed that Dark Side warrior’s Lightsaber, sending the blades down into the craft’s engines and the Inquisitor tumbling backwards. As Grand Inquisitor dangled above growing explosions and fire, he realized he had been defeated yet he'd been more afraid of his master’s wrath for his failure. He chose death, warning Kanan that he had unleashed something terrible, and let himself plummet to his demise. Meanwhile, Ezra survived, and rebels escaped with an major victory as the Star Destroyer was destroyed.

Powers and Abilities


The Force: This Grand Inquisitor was an powerful practitioner of the Dark Side of the Force, and given the rank he likely was one of the most skilled and powerful of their Inquisitors. An Grand Inquisitor was skilled in the telekinesis usage, he possessed enough telekinetic power to push a Jedi Kanan Jarrus clear across a hall and throw his Lightsaber with lethal precision. He used Telekinesis as either offensive or defensive during his battles. The Inquisitor had a keen Force Sense, which he demonstrated during his pursuit of Kanan Jarrus and Ezra Bridger on Empire Day. The Grand Inquisitor utilized Mind trick to control the minds of other sentient beings. However, it does not work on individuals who had a very strong wills, such as Kanan Jarrus who the Grand Inquisitor tried to interrogate after that Jedi was captured. A Grand Inquisitor utilized Mind probe to sift through thoughts of beings while searching for useful intel. An Mind probe was highly invasive and their affected could attempt to resist, through resistance would be unsuccessful except for another Force-Sensitive.


Lightsaber Skills: An Imperial Grand Inquisitor was a practitioner of the dark side of the Force and trained in Lightsaber combat, having learned to use and counter all seven forms recognized by the Jedi Order. He wielded his double-bladed Lightsaber, which he used in multiple settings; single-bladed, double-bladed, as well as double-bladed with their blades spinning on the hilt. In addition to his using that weapon to unnerve all his enemies, he wielded it in order to quickly and efficiently end combat with as little effort as was required. This allowed him to skillfully execute the Jedi he encountered. This Imperial Grand Inquisitor had also demonstrated skill in the use of dual blades to the point of using a single-bladed lightsaber and his double-bladed spinning lightsaber at the same time, such as when he fended off a giant fyrnock in an Fort Anaxes. The Imperial Grand Inquisitor held some skill in Makashi, able to hold his upper hand against an Jedi Order Jedi Padawan learner survivor Kanan Jarrus twice while using form Makashi before he'd quickly managed to defeat him.

High-Level Intellect: The Grand Inquisitor was very highly intelligent and wise, having studied vast amounts of literature from the archives from the Jedi Temple to further his knowledge and skills. As the highest-ranking Imperial Inquisitor, the Imperial Grand Inquisitor was a skilled tactician and a capable leader. Grand Inquisitior was also highly perceptive, as he correctly deduced Kanan Jarrus was trained under the Jedi master Depa Billaba after only a few traded blows in the first Lightsaber duel; identifying him from the Lightsaber form he used and the way he used it. This Grand Inquisitor was also the skilled pilot, and commonly demonstrated the competence in flying the prototype TIE Advanced Fighter entrusted to him in his mission to hunt down the rebels and their Jedi allies for the Galactic Empire. On the Empire Day celebration at Lothal, the Inquisitor used it to pursue Jedi Kanan Jarrus and the Spectres after a "terrorist attack" in Capital City. As an Grand Inquisitor, he wore his own Special Adjutant's Helmet during his flights in his Empire TIE Advanced V1 Starfighter.



Double-Bladed Spinning Lightsaber: Imperial Grand Inquisitor's Lightsaber was this personal double-bladed spinning variation of a Lightsaber of this Jedi hunter known as the Grand Inquisitor, similar to those wielded by the other Imperial Inquisitors. The Grand Inquistor wielded his lightsaber against Emperor Palpatine's new apprentice, the Dark Lord of the Sith Darth Vader. During their fight, Lord Vader was able to damage the Inquisitor's Lightsaber. Imperial Grand Inquisitor wielded his own Lightsaber in several duels against Kanan Jarrus and Ezra Bridger. It was also used to execute Imperial officers Cumberlayne Aresko and Myles Grint both at once on an Grand Moff Wilhuff Tarkin's orders, after their repeated incompetence in capturing the rebels. In an final battle against the Inquisitor, after his rescue, Kanan Jarrus split a Grand Imperial Inquisitors weapon in two, causing these pieces to fall down an shaft. These two halves were then destroyed in an explosion when they fell into an Empire Star Destroyer Sovereign's engines, followed shortly by the Inquisitor himself.
