Every Star Wars Inquisitor That We Know So Far

The following contains minor spoilers for lesser-known Stars Wars titles.

Over the years, more Star Wars inquisitors have appeared in the galaxy far, far away. Now, there is a full arrangement of these dark force wielders that any Star Wars writer or fan can explore. The Obi-Wan Kenobi trailer has already promised the appearance of many inquisitors from Star Wars lore, and the show could still introduce more. Since the trailer dropped, many fans are looking to brush up on some of these less-well-known characters.

Emperor Palpatine (possibly making a return with Obi-Wan Kenobi) organized the inquisitors specifically to hunt down remaining force-wielders throughout the galaxy. Some former Jedi joined by choice and others were tortured until they accepted their new roles. Regardless of how they joined or earned their place in the ranks, every inquisitor survived rigorous training under Darth Vader himself. They are technically not “Sith Lords“(thanks to the rule that only two Sith may be alive at one time) and inquisitors remain underrated characters in Star Wars, but they are just as big of a threat to the remaining Jedi. Here is a list of all the inquisitors we have encountered so far and what makes each one unique.


Grand Inquisitor

As is implied by his title, the Grand Inquisitor is the highest ranking inquisitor. He earned this rank by being the best trained and most powerful of all the Dark Jedi in Palatine’s crew. In Star Wars: Rebels, the Grand Inquisitor hunted Jedi Kanan Jurras and his apprentice Ezra Bridger. The inquisitor even successfully captured Kanan for a time. However, Kanan’s rag-tag team quickly rescued him, and the Jedi defeated the Grand Inquisitor in a duel. Kanan spared the Grand Inquisitors life, but at that point the inquisitor chose to fall to his death rather than face the wrath of Darth Vader. The Grand Inquisitor will appear in the new Obi-Wan Kenobi series on Disney + just before the events in Star Wars: Rebelsand at the height of the inquisitors’ power.

Second Sister

The Second Sister is the main antagonist in Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order, and she has one of the most detailed character arcs of all the inquisitors. She and her master survived order 66 and successfully avoided the empire for a time. Eventually, the Second Sister’s master was captured and tortured. During torture the master gave up the apprentice’s location, and the Second Sister was then tortured until she fell to the dark side. The Second Sister eventually found the Jedi Cal Kestis (who traveled with the inquisitor’s former master). She stole Cal’s Holocron which contained information about all the galaxy’s force sensitive younglings. Cal and the Second Sister’s master confronted her again, and managed to turn her back to the light side. Tragically, Darth Vader immediately killed the Second Sister for her failure and betrayal.

Third Sister

We do not know much about the Third Sister yet, but she will be featured in the Obi-Wan Kenobi series on Disney +. She seems to be both a strong fighter and a powerful tactician. In the trailer, we see her fighting against multiple targets (assumably Jedi) and going head-to-head with Luke’s Uncle Owen. She could be just big enough of a threat to draw Obi-Wan out of hiding.

Fourth Sister

The Fourth Sister primarily remains a mystery as well. She is briefly mentioned in the comic book series Star Wars Adventures: Return to Vader’s Castle. An alliance commander uses the Fourth Sister’s armor to sneak into Darth Vader’s castle. We aren’t sure how the commander obtained the Fourth Sister’s armor or what her specialty is. Almost everything about her story has yet to be explored.

Fifth Brother

Leadership originally assigned the Fifth Brother to target Eeth Koth, but later the Fifth Brother also helped hunt Kanan Jarrus and Ezra Bridger. He is known for his strength and his direct fighting style. At times, he clashed with the other inquisitors’ more tactical fighting approaches; the Seventh Sister in particular once scolded him for trying to kill Ezra as the padawan wandered off alone. Instead, she wanted to use the padawan as bait to hunt his masters. Seeing as how the inquisitors failed to defeat the united Jedi, the Fifth Brother’s idea to pick them off one at a time might have been more successful.

Sixth Brother

From Darth Vader’s perspective, the Sixth Brother had trouble forgetting his Jedi training. Vader cut off the Sixth brother’s arm during training to fix this problem and teach the Sixth Brother to fight more defensively. The Sixth Brother proved his newfound ruthlessness by betraying the Ninth Sister in order to ensure his own escape during a mission.

Later, he ran into beloved Star Wars character Ahsoka Tano while investigating a force-sensitive child. Ahsoka seemed like easy pickings without her lightsaber, but proved to still be a powerful threat. Ahsoka managed to defeat the Sixth Brother by summoning the crystals from his lightsaber, and the Sixth Brother and his lightsaber exploded in the process, Ahsoka blanching his crystals to use in her own new lightsaber.

Seventh Sister

The Seventh Sister was sent to hunt Ashoka Tano. As Ashoka became allies with Kanan and Ezra, the seventh sister worked closely with the Fifth Brother and even the Eighth Brother to hunt their targets (especially when they were all united on Malachor). The Seventh Sister enjoyed hunting Jedi, but never defeated Ashoka. Darth Maul ruthlessly killed her alongside her peers.

Eighth Brother

The Eighth Brother remained more loyal to Palpatine than Darth Vader, even after Palpatine gave Vader command over the inquisitors. According to CBR, the Eighth Brother also has a unique hilt that shoots out lightsaber blades. The Eighth Brother was assigned to hunt Darth Maul, but failed; he almost escaped the fight by flying away using the helicopter function of his lightsaber. However, his lightsaber malfunctioned, and he presumably fell to his death.

Ninth Sister

The Ninth Sister survived the Sixth Brother’s betrayal but lost her leg in the process. She was chosen to become an inquisitor for her strong connections with people. After torture and falling to the dark side, she used those connections for interrogation and torture rather than healing and relationships. The Ninth Sister fell off a ledge on Kashyyyk and presumably died after loosing a duel with Cal Kestis in Jedi Fallen Order. However, the Ninth Sister has surprised us with her survival skills before, so it’s always possible that we will see her again.

Tenth Brother

Before he was an inquisitor, Jedi Prosset Dibbs became disillusioned with the Jedi Order during a mission with Jedi Master Mace Windu (who may be getting his own show); Dibbs attacked Windu, but failed to kill him. Windu pleaded with the council on Dibbs behalf, and Dibbs was allowed to leave the Jedi order. His hate for the Jedi eventually caused him to willingly join the inquisitors. During a mission he convinced purge troopers to execute order 66 and fire on the Jedi, but then the purge troopers also fired on the tenth brother and killed him in the process.
