WHO IS DARTH REVAN?
Article written by Dylan Devine (10/19/20)
Not a lot of people are familiar with Darth Revan. Mostly just the real passionate Star Wars fans know of him as he has only been featured in legends. Darth Revan was a very powerful Jedi Knight who turned to the dark side and became a Dark Lord of the Sith. Revan ultimately ended up returning to the Jedi Order and helped the Jedi defeat the Sith Empire that he helped build. He was originally introduced to the Star Wars universe in 2003 in the Star Wars : Knights of the Republic video game which was Star Wars Legends. He was the main playable character in the game. He was then also featured in the Star Wars : The Old Republic video game and became very popular with hardcore Star Wars fans. Revan had a very unique personality and was a very smart, determined, and intelligent man. He helped influence Darth Bane with coming up with the “rule of two” which was a rule that made Sith believe that a Sith Master should have one apprentice to avoid being overruled by multiple followers. Revan was very powerful and exceled in lightsaber combat. He normally dueled with just one saber, but when he turned to the dark side he wielded two. A red one for Sith and his purple one from his Jedi days. Fans have been lobbying for more of Revan for a very long time now, most want some sort of series or movie revolving around him or a story he could be involved in. I personally believe that he’ll be apart of the future Star Wars trilogy that will be happening as I have a feeling it will be focusing on the Old Republic. Fans familiar with Revan deserve to see more of him and unfamiliar fans deserve to be introduced to him. He has such a unique and fun backstory and is one of the most powerful beings of all time in the Star Wars universe. Hopefully we get more of him in the near future.
