The Sixth Brother was a male member of the Inquisitorius. In the year following the end of the Clone Wars, the Sixth Brother and the rest of the Inquisitors, hunted for Force-sensitive children, as well as Jedi who survived Order 66. He was killed by Ahsoka Tano during the uprising on Raada.
The individual who became known as the Sixth Brother originally had ties to the Jedi Order. At some point after the Galactic Republic was reorganized into the Galactic Empire, he was inducted into an Imperial agency of Force-sensitive assassins called the Inquisitorius, which was tasked with hunting down and eliminating any Jedi who survived Order 66. To accomplish this, he and his colleagues were trained by Darth Vader in the ways of the dark side of the Force and studied the records of the Jedi Temple in order to defeat their enemies.
Age of the Empire Edit
The Sixth Brother intercepted surveillance holos and reports indicating that a Force-sensitive child may be active on the planet Thabeska. While on Thabeska, the Brother received a message from low-level district commander on the moon of Raada. The report indicated that a Force-sensitive being, old enough to have received Jedi training, was active on the backwater moon. The Brother then proceeded to close his file on the child in Thabeska and head to Raada to investigate a possible Jedi.
Hunting Ahsoka TanoEdit
The Sixth Brother traveled to Raada to hunt down the Jedi spotted on the small agricultural moon. He learned from Jenneth Pilar, an information broker working with the Empire on the moon, that a Jedi or Padawan had been involved in an uprising by a local farmer community. During the uprising, teenage farm worker Kaeden Larte had been captured and tortured for information. The Brother scoffed at the techniques used on Larte, which proved ineffective. The Brother learned that Larte was then broken out of the Imperial base by a Force-sensitive being.
The Brother tracked Larte and the other farm workers who rebelled to a set of mountain caves far from the settlement. Kaeden surrendered herself to the Inquisitor, but her friends soon attacked him. The Brother deflected the blaster bolts shot by the farmers, killing them. As a show of strength, the Brother threw his lightsaber at the Rodian farmer, Kolvin, who was instantly cut in half.
Ahsoka Tano returned to Raada, and discovered that the Sixth Brother had kidnapped Larte. Tano was in the process of rebuilding her lightsabers, and heard the kyber crystals in the Brother's double-bladed lightsaber sing to her. During her battle with the Brother, Tano used the Force to pull the crystals from his lightsaber. The lightsaber became unstable and exploded, killing the Sixth Brother.
The Sixth Brother was of an unknown species; neither Kaeden Larte or Ahsoka Tano were able to identify his species. He was described as tall with unnatural-looking gray skin, piercing ice-blue eyes, broad shoulders, and scar-like uniform markings on his cheeks, nose, and chin. Like his fellow Inquisitors, he wore an armoured black and grey bodysuit and carried a double-bladed spinning lightsaber. He also wore a helmet with a lift-able face shield.
Personality and traitsEdit
The Sixth Brother demonstrated a vicious and ruthless personality, being completely comfortable with the idea of killing innocent beings-even children-and detesting the aspects of his mission that prevented him from acting in such a matter. He was also known to have relished the idea of facing more challenging prey and feared competition from his fellow Inquisitors.
He was also arrogant, claiming himself to be "the future" and displaying over-confidence during his fight with Ahsoka Tano, which ultimately led to his demise.
Powers and abilitiesEdit
- "He's had some training. He mostly relies on brute strength. If he was going to be facing Jedi, or someone with my level of training, I'd say he wouldn't be much of a threat. I defeated him without my lightsabers."
- ―Ahsoka Tano to Bail Organa
The Sixth Brother showed very little in the way of his powers and abilities during his hunt for a Force-sensitive child on Thabeska as well as his confrontation with Ahsoka Tano. Tano described him as "lacking finesse" and "relying mostly on brute strength", as well as being apparently unable to fight with the face shield of his armour in place. Despite this, he was competent with an Inquisitor's lightsaber, being able to both deflect blaster bolts back at their firers and throw his saber in order to chop Kolvin in half.
