Hunters of the Dark Side: The Imperial Inquisition in Star Wars
The Imperial Inquisition holds a significant place in the official Star Wars canon, notably showcased in the animated series Star Wars Rebels as well as Obi-Wan Kenobi Series and Games Series built around Kal Cestis. Now they have arrived in Shatterpoint!
After the Jedi Order’s near-extinction following the treacherous Order 66, Emperor Palpatine sought to eradicate any surviving Jedi and potential Force-sensitive individuals. To accomplish this task, he established the Imperial Inquisition, a secretive and highly skilled organization of Force-users tasked with hunting down and eliminating those who could pose a threat to the Empire’s dominion.
Led by the enigmatic and imposing figure known as the Grand Inquisitor, the Inquisitors were formidable adversaries, trained not only in the ways of the dark side but also in lightsaber combat. Each member wielded a unique red-bladed lightsaber, signifying their allegiance to the dark side of the Force. Their loyalty to the Emperor was unwavering, and they would stop at nothing to fulfill their grim mission.
The Inquisitors were divided into several ranks, including Brothers, Sisters, and the Grand Inquisitor himself. While the exact origins of the Inquisitors remain shrouded in mystery, it is believed that many of them were once Jedi who either willingly turned to the dark side or were corrupted and manipulated by the Emperor’s influence. This added a tragic layer to their lore, as former guardians of peace became instruments of terror in the Empire’s hands.
