First discussion Edit

Revanchist? That sounds very similar to the name Revan...which we are all waiting to make an appearance. Could this be the name of Revan's followers? or Maybe it is where Revan got his name (althought this seems less likely since the KOTOR game indicated that Revan was his name even when a Jedi--i.e he was probably born with it, like most Jedis.

anyone else think this is just coincidence? ~~IthinkIwannaLeia.

  • The Revanchists follow the Revanchist leader. As for Revan... Most people who think Alek is Malak also think that the Revanchist leader is Revan, but who knows. - Sikon 16:46, 11 September 2007 (UTC)

Merge Edit

Should the Jedi Crusaders article be merged with this one? I think it should, since it appears the Crusaders are the same as the Revanchists, but it's not up to me.--Jedi Kasra 17:23, 21 December 2007 (UTC)

  • Indeed. - Sikon 09:10, 23 December 2007 (UTC)

AppearancesEdit

Since the KOTOR games mention vaguely the 'Jedi who followed Revan', shouldn't we include them in the appearances section, even with the 'indirect mention only' note? MoffRebus 02:15, 4 February 2008 (UTC)

Name Change Edit

I was wondering if we could change the name of this article to "The Revanchists" instead. Any thoughts? Here's a poll just in case.--Jedi Kasra 22:40, 9 February 2008 (UTC)

  • O.K. So maybe not "The Revanchists". But how about "Revanchists" instead? As I explained to Atarumaster88 here, most people who have played the game read the comics and this site, so they should know that The Revanchist is indeed Revan.--Jedi Kasra 03:17, 27 February 2008 (UTC)

In Favor of name changeEdit

Against name changeEdit

  1. If I recall our current naming policy correctly, we neither use plurals, nor do we add "the" to the front of article names. Ere go Galactic Empire not The Galactic Empire and Ithorian not Ithorians. Din's Fire 997 16:16, 16 February 2008 (UTC)
  2. Perhaps redirect one of the others, but this name seems to work better. Atarumaster88 Jedi Order (Talk page) 00:13, 28 February 2008 (UTC)
  3. Same thing as the others have said. Drewton 01:40, 23 May 2008 (UTC)

CommentsEdit

After surveying the article, what would you say the advantages are, Kasra? Also, perhaps this should be brought up in the Senate Hall so that more people can come across this; It might be more productive that way. Master Aban Fiolli {Alpheridies University ComNet} 04:43, 14 February 2008 (UTC)

  • If I am not mistaken, they are called the Revanchists in the comics. So it seems logical to me to change the name.--Jedi Kasra 22:15, 14 February 2008 (UTC)
  • In the third page of the preview for KotOR #32, the group is specifically mentioned by Xamar as the "Revanchists", so now we know that they are more commonly called that.--Jedi Kasra (talk) 17:27, 1 August 2008 (UTC)

Malak-Alek Edit

I was going to change Malak to Alek in the beginning quote, but I remembered that it's been reverted before. Alek declared himself Darth Malak after his jaw was removed, and at this time he's called Alek in the Darth Malak article. Also, is '(Vision to the Jedi Exile)' necessary? We know at least the beginning parts of the vision really happened, because the Exile said she'd been there before, and that it was where she was recruited.

  • "Alek declared himself Darth Malak after his jaw was removed"[source?] -- I need a name (Complain here) 01:38, 20 June 2008 (UTC)
    • The image of Revan and Malak in the Guide to the Force has a caption saying that they're declaring themselves the Dark Lords of the Sith at the time in it, and in the picture, Malak has the metal jaw already. Drewton Era-old (Drewton's Holocron) 01:42, 20 June 2008 (UTC)
      • Alek took the name "Captain Malak" in 3,963 BBY when there was an arrest warrent on jedi knights who joined the war against the Mandalorians so that he could go to Coruscant and warn masters Vandar and Vrook about the Jedi Covenant on behalf of Zayne Carrick. This is described in the Knights of the Old Republic comic book, issue 31. Jediphile 23:39, 9 August 2009 (UTC)

Grammatical error Edit

There is an instance of hypercorrection in the opening quote of the article: "Join Revan and I." It should be: "Join Revan and me." Should this be indicated with [sic] or something, or shall we leave it at that?

  • It is a direct quote from the text and must be left as-is. It doesn't matter if Malak made a grammatical error, that's what he said. Also, sign your name with four tildes (~). NaruHina Talk Anakinsolo 23:50, 9 August 2009 (UTC)

Sanctioned by the Jedi Council Edit

While it is correct that the Jedi Council sanctioned the Revanchists participation in the Mandalorian Wars according to KotOR comic #42, it should also be noted that the writer, John Jackson Miller, has stated that this is dispensation with deniability. This dispensation was presumably introduced mostly to reconcile the fact that the Revanchists were first hit with arrest warrants (as seen in issue 31), yet subsequently ended up commanding ships in the republic fleet without any conflict or confrontation having taken place between the republic and the jedi order. And it seems more will be revealed on this matter as new issues of the comic book are released. For reference, see the second post by John Jackson Miller here Jediphile 00:06, 10 August 2009 (UTC)
