The Inquisitor is an antagonist character who will be appearing in the forthcoming television series Star Wars Rebels. The character, described as the "new face of evil," is an Imperial Inquisitor tasked by Darth Vader to hunt down the remaining Jedi Knights. The character takes on the traditional look of a Sith warrior, with black armor and a red lightsaber. The character's species is a Pau'an, a race from the planet Utapau first introduced in Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith.
According to Dave Filoni, one of the Rebels executive producers, the Inquisitor continues the tradition of each Star Wars era having a marquee villain that captures the idea of the enemy and what evil is. Although most people consider Darth Vader the signature villain of the Imperial era, the Inquisitor shows that there are important villains within the Empire beyond just Darth Vader.
