Hi so I have three kinda connected questions that I've been wondering about so here they are:
1. What is Vader's Rank in the Empire and is he a publicly known figure?
2. Who do the Inquisitors answer/are loyal to? Vader or Palpatine?
3. Where did the Inquisitors come from, are they captured Jedi Padawans?
I'm looking for the new canon answers but feel free to share the answers from legends. Knightmare · [Talk] 17:55, September 5, 2015 (UTC)
Regarding the first question - it seems that in the new canon that Vader is still something of a mysterious figure. Some people might know about him, but depending on their station, they may have only heard rumors, or even nothing more than whispers of rumors. As for his rank, well, those that have read the Darth Vader comics would be able to tell you more than I. He definitely has some power and in Lords of the Sith is seen working directly alongside Emperor Palpatine. As for the second question, and still talking about the new question, they answer to Vader ultimately, but only because Palpatine gives him that power. At the end of Star Wars Rebels: The siege of Lothal, Palpatine orders Vader to "dispatch another Inquisitor" to take care of the rebels. So they are under Vader's command. As for the final question, that's a bit more murky. The Inquisitor seen in the first season of Rebels was apparently trained in the dark side from the go and was never associated with the Jedi. Regarding any other Inquisitors, though, they're not really going to be featured until the show's second season, coming in October. However, the Servants of the Empire series and certain other hints strongly suggest that they're Force-sensitive individuals that they Empire has identified and trained at a special Academy on Arkanis.
