Forums > Knowledge Bank > KB:Inquisitorius Questions

I have searched for the answers to the following questions and I have not found any. Perhaps the answers have not been released yet, but I figured I would ask the questions here. The first question: "Did the Inquisitors actively betray the Jedi Order during Order 66, either on their own or contacted secretly by Palpatine prior to Order 66, or were the Inquisitors captured Jedi that were broken down and turned to the dark side?

The second question: Is there a particular reason that there have been no human Inquisitors? I find this odd, given that humans are a predominant species in the galaxy. I am aware there are a few Inquisitors whose species have yet to be identified.

  • The answer depends on if you're interested in Legends material. Much of it is there in the Inquisitorius/Legends page under the listing of known Inquisitors.

According to the Legends, at least 5 Inquisitors were Jedi Knights or Masters prior to Order 66, with 1 known Padawan and 3 members of the AgriCorps. Many Inquisitors were human according to Legends.

Jedi Master Jerec and Jedi Knight Valin Draco had become disillusioned with the Order and converted easily, but only after Order 66; Jerec was away in the Unknown Regions, and Draco was believed dead at the time. From what is recorded in Wookieepedia, it does not appear that any Jedi were seduced by Palpatine to participate in Order 66 other than Anakin Skywalker.

According to Legends, the first Inquisitor was Malorum who was an Intelligence agent assigned to investigate the Jedi Temple immediately after Order 66, even before the newly named Vader was sent to Mustafar. All others were acquired afterwards. KievanMereel (talk) 19:56, August 16, 2019 (UTC)
