The Inquisitorius, also known as the Inquisitorius Program and the Order of Inquisitors, was an organization of Force-sensitive agents who worked for the Galactic Empire. Members of the Inquisitorius were known as Imperial Inquisitors, Inquisitors, Red Blades, Mystics by Imperial officers, and sometimes even Jedi hunters.
Note: After this episode was recorded, producer and head writer of Rebels Henry Gilroy shed some light on some of our questions about the inquisitors. Paraphrased from the panel:
- The Inquisitors are all fallen Jedi, who were scouted and picked by Palpatine before Order 66. He targeted Jedi that showed tendencies for brutality, were jealous, ambitious for power, or were disenfranchised by the Jedi Order and had them stunned during Order 66 instead of killed.
- There was a pitched arc in Season 3 that focused on other Inquisitors, but they decided to instead focus on Maul.
