"I care not for your struggles. I will succeed where you and Kallus have failed."
―The Fifth Brother, to Admiral Kassius Konstantine[src]

Fifth Brother was the designation used by a gray-skinned humanoid male Inquisitor of the Galactic Empire several years before the Battle of Yavin. On the orders of the Emperor, Darth Sidious, the Fifth Brother was dispatched by the Sith Lord Darth Vader to hunt the growing rebellion against the Empire.


"Lord Vader has sent me in his place."
―The Fifth Brother[src]

The Fifth Brother arrives on Konstantine's Star Destroyer.

The individual known as the Fifth Brother served as an Inquisitor of the Galactic Empire in the years prior to the Battle of Yavin. After the death of the Grand Inquisitor—known simply as the Inquisitor—and after the Sith Lord Darth Vader hunted and broke a growing rebel fleet during the Siege of Lothal, Vader was ordered by the Emperor, Darth Sidious, to dispatch another Inquisitor to deal with the growing rebellion against the Empire. Vader soon sent the Fifth Brother to continue the work that he and the Grand Inquisitor had started.[1]

During the Imperial assault against the Lothal rebel cell on the planet Seelos, Admiral Kassius Konstantine was ordered to have his Star Destroyer rendezvous with a shuttle he was led to believe carried Lord Vader himself. In reality, however, it carried the Fifth Brother, who arrived aboard Konstantine's Star Destroyer to begin hunting the rebellion. Konstantine questioned why his vessel had to divert from Seelos to rendezvous with an Inquisitor, as the diversion may have compromised the assault that ISB Agent Kallus was leading on Seelos, but the Fifth Brother had no interest in the assault and pledged to stop the rebellion himself.[1]

Personality and traits

The Fifth Brother was a humanoid male with white eyes and gray skin. He wore the gray and black uniform of an Inquisitor, wore a metallic headpiece, and carried a double-bladed spinning lightsaber.[1]
