The Obi-Wan Kenobi series is almost a year old, so we’re looking into who the Third Sister, Reva Sevander, is. Portrayed by Moses Ingram, Reva was an exciting addition to the Star Wars universe. She’s an inquisitor who served the Empire but has a secret agenda. So let’s jump into the secretive Reva.
Born on an unknown planet, Reva was a Jedi youngling during the last years of the Galactic Republic. On the night that Order 66 was executed, she was in a class taught by Jedi Master Minas Velti. Upon clones from the 501st Clone Battalion entering the classroom, their teacher shielded the initiates, but Velti was killed before she could get them out of the Jedi Temple.
Reva was one of those kids and was able to escape. Unfortunately, most younglings weren’t so lucky, as they were killed by the clones or slaughtered by Darth Vader. Young Reva was severely injured and played dead when the fallen Jedi Knight struck. She lay under the corpses of her friends but got a good enough look at his face.
Reva And Her Revenge Against Vader
After escaping, Reva joined the Inquistorius and started planning revenge on the man who killed her friends. She worked her way up the ranks. However, she doesn’t realise Vader knew who she was and her plan for him. After supposedly killing The Grand Inquisitor, Reva is granted the top job. However, she doesn’t realise that her former boss has two stomachs due to being a Pau’an.
Reva also informs Obi-Wan Kenobi that Anakin Skywalker is alive and that he and Vader are the same person. This rattles the former Jedi Master. She also realises a connection between Princess Leia and Vader, likely piecing together that Bail and Breha Organa’s young daughter, is the biological child of the man she is attempting to kill.
Having her chance, Reva attempts to strike the Sith Lord down upon getting closer to Vader, but she is dealt a blow when he reveals what he knows. He then leaves her for dead after repeating what he did to her on the night of Order 66. Injured, she finds a way to redeem herself when she finds a corrupted holo message Bail had sent Obi-Wan about “the boy.” Her next goal? To kill Luke Skywalker.
Reva’s return to Tatooine triggers a rapid chain of events. One of the moisture farmers alerts Owen Lars, Luke’s uncle, who then rushes home to his wife Beru to inform her of the Inquisitor’s threat. Beru, remembering the promise they made Obi-Wan a decade earlier, tells her husband that they’re going to stay and defend their home. They also ask Luke to stay put, but if he has to, run into the valley.
When Reva gets too close, Luke takes off as he was told. He ended up unconscious. Reva finds him and goes to kill him but suffers a flashback of her at the same age when she was forced to fake her death. She isn’t able to slaughter the boy and returns him to his family.
After the Larses have taken Luke home, Reva breaks down in front of Obi-Wan and surrenders her lightsaber.
Obi-Wan tells her that she did the right thing but will have to run as the Empire will know she’s alive. This is the last we see of her.
