news culture Star Wars Obi-Wan Kenobi: Does Episode 3 Symbol Reveal Inquisitor Reva’s Origins?
Among Obi-Wan Kenobi’s pursuers, one seems to particularly figure prominently in the plot. The Third Sister, or Reva, keeps revealing herself a little more with each episode, and a detail discovered this week in episode 3 could say a lot about the character.
A well-known symbol
Leaving Darth Vader and Obi-Wan to their painful reunion, we saw the Third Sister stumble upon the hideout occupied by the Jedi Master and Leia on the mining planet Mapuzo. Shortly before finding the entrance to the tunnels through which the little one escaped, Reva lingers on the inscriptions engraved on the walls and one of them particularly catches her attention. The emblem in question is awkwardly drawn on the wall, but that does not prevent our Inquisitor from recognizing it. This is the coat of arms of the Jedi Order, which later inspired the Rebel Alliance.
A trail of clues to Reva’s origins
The Third Sister seems to remain pensive in front of this emblem. It’s hard to miss his reaction. Reva was probably part of the Jedi Order before the rise of the Empire and the Purge. Everything suggests that she was one of the Padawans we saw in the series prologue, fleeing the clone legions through a Jedi Temple. She would therefore have been converted very early to the dark side of the Force in order to become an Inquisitor. Would the sight of the symbol of her former Order have awakened some doubts in her? In any case, she does not seem to remain indifferent. The character of Reva seems to be central to the series, no doubt that we will have confirmation of its origins during the next episodes.
