After the devastating effects of Order 66, any surviving Jedi went into hiding. To find them, Vader set up an organization to hunt down and kill them, called the Inquisitors. Aside from executing  Jedi, their task was also to find and capture any Force sensitives who could be a threat to the Empire. There work was often dangerous, and several Inquisitors lost their lives while carrying out Vader’s orders, either killed by the Jedi they were hunting, or falling foul of the Sith lord’s wrath.

Masked Inquisitor

After Order 66, Ahsoka went into hiding, working on a farm in a small village. After accidently revealing her Force abilities while saving a village girl’s life, the girl’s brother contacted the Empire, hoping to gain a reward for turning in the Jedi.

When Ahsoka returned from market, the village was burning and most of its inhabitants killed by a masked Inquisitor. Intending to kill her, the Inquisitor advanced on Ahsoka, expecting an easy kill as she was unarmed. He underestimated the former Jedi’s abilities, as Ahsoka easily dodged his blows and took his lightsaber, using it to decapitate the Inquisitor.


A female Inquisitor who participated in the hunt for former Jedi master Eeth Koth, she found and captured Koth’s child, bringing it for participation in Project Harvester. Following the mission’s success, she and the Twi’lek Inquisitor drank a toast and speculated on what Vader would do when all the Jedi were dead.

During their conversation, Vader approached them and lit his lightsaber. He sensed their close connection, believing it a weakness, and intended to kill them. After a speeder chase, Vader was knocked down. Iskat stepped up, intending to kill the Sith lord, but Vader used the Force to manipulate her and the Twi’lek, impaling them on each other’s lightsabers.

Twi’lek Inquisitor

Not much has been revealed about this Inquisitor. He was a male Twi’lek who was involved in tracking down Eeth Koth, and had a connection to fellow Inquisitor Iskat, which led to Vader killing them both.

During the speeder chase across Coruscant, several people were injured, and a Senator was killed, leading to the Emperor ordering the Inquisitors headquarters moved off world, to the moon of Nur over Mustafar.

Second Sister

A former padawan who was captured by the Empire and tortured until she turned to the Dark Side. She was one of the most competent inquisitors.

She pursued the former Jedi Cal Kestis, engaging him on several occasions. During their final confrontation, Kestis infiltrated Fortress Inquisitorius with Suduri’s former master Junda. Although she claimed to have been taken over by the Dark Side, the appearance of Junda made her change her mind. Just as Vader arrived, executing her for her treachery.

Eighth Brother

A Terrelian Jango Jumper, the Eighth Brother was athletic and capable. He was tracking down the former Sith Maul and followed him to Malacore, where Maul was searching for the Sith temple. After coming across Ahsoka and Kanan, he was disarmed and taken prisoner until his fellow Inquisitors rescued him.

Despite his competent fighting skills, he was still outmatched by Kanan, who managed to damage his spinning lightsaber. Knowing he couldn’t win, the Eighth Brother tried to flee using his saber’s repulsors, but they were damaged and he fell to his death from the temple.

Tenth Brother

Formerly a Jedi known as Prosset Dibs, he was disillusioned with the Order’s involvement in the Clone Wars. After Order 66, he turned to the Dark Side and became an Inquisitor. Unusually, the Tenth Brother used a pair of Shoto lightsabers, rather than the double-bladed version favored by Inquisitors.

On a mission to Mon Cala, hunting padawan Ferren Barr, along with the Ninth Sister and Sixth brother. they had cornered the Jedi when he used a mind trick on the Purge Troopers, all of who were former clones, telling them to “execute Order 66”, causing the troopers to turn on the Inquisitors, gunning down the Tenth Brother.

Sixth Brother

Sixth Brother was a self-preserving Inquisitor. On the mission to capture Ferren Barr on Mon Cala, the Inquisitor’s Purge Troopers turned against them. To escape, Sixth Brother cut off one of Ninth Sister’s legs, leaving her to fend off the clones while he escaped.

He later traveled to the moon of Raada, on the hunt for Ahsoka Tano. Finding the former padawan, he engaged in a fight. Despite Ahsoka’s lack of lightsabers, she managed to defeat the Brother, pulling the Kyber crystals from inside his saber’s spinning hilt, causing it to explode and kill its wielder.

Fifth Brother

One of two Inquisitors sent to find Kanan and Ezra after the death of the Grand Inquisitor, he didn’t favor tactics, often using his strength to overcome his enemies. He was also power-hungry, believing he would make a name for himself by killing the Jedi.

Along with the Seventh Sister, he tracked Kanan, Ezra and Ahsoka to the Sith temple on Malacore. With the unexpected appearance of Maul, the Inquisitors were outmatched. He and Eighth Brother tried to delay Kanan and Ahsoka, but was surprised by Maul jumping into the fight, allowing Ahsoka to disarm him, leaving Maul to strike down the unarmed Inquisitor.

Seventh Sister

A skilled, agile fighter, the Seventh Sister often quarreled with her companion the Fifth Brother, as their styles of pursuit and tactics differed. She used probe droids to collect intelligence and spy on her targets.

Arriving on Malacore, she engaged in a duel until Maul arrived, prompting the Inquisitors to retreat. She reorganized their attack, heading to the top of the temple to cut of Ezra and Maul. She was no match for the former Sith, who grabbed her in a Force choke, urging Ezra to kill her, but he refused. Maul then threw his lightsaber at the Inquisitor, cutting her down.

Grand Inquisitor

The Grand Inquisitor was one of Vader’s most skilled agents. Before the rise of the Empire, he’d served as a Jedi Temple Guard, but turned to the Dark Side following Order 66 and began hunting down the Jedi he was sworn to protect.

After Kanan revealed his Jedi abilities and took on Ezra Bridger as his Padawan, the Grand Inquisitor pursued them, ending with a confrontation on Tarkin’s Star Destroyer over Mustafar, where Kanan defeated him in a lightsaber duel. Rather than surrender to the Jedi, or face Vader’s wrath, the Inquisitor threw himself into the ship’s reactor, dying instantly.
