  • could it work?
  • what part of the timeline would you base it?
  • what would the story be?

I have always thought the idea of an inquisitor tracking down a jedi but they fall in love would be a pretty cool story.
I would place it between ESB & ROTJ.

Jason Isaacs has said he’d enjoy bringing the Grand Inquisitor to live action, although mostly because of his cool spinny Inquisitor lightsaber. He looks enough like the character for the part, and obviously sounds it - I’d love to see this happen someday.

I like stories about the relationship of hunter and hunted, but personally not sure about the idea of an Inquisitor falling in love with the Jedi they’re hunting. A lot of outlandish ideas in Star Wars work for me, but this one seems a stretch and hard to accomplish. Also, more Jedi on the run in the ESB/ROTJ time period lessens the significance of Luke’s journey (Cal Kestis for example should, imo, die a heroic death sometime before A New Hope)

I think it’s difficult to accomplish really interesting stories around the Inquisitors. I haven’t yet played Fallen Order, but it looks like the story of an Inquisitor and a Jedi who knew each other before the purge reconciling has already been done, Inquisitors like Fifth Brother and Seventh Sister played their part in Rebels - as recurring side-villains so Vader could be used sparingly - just fine, but to my knowledge they’re not incredibly interesting characters by themselves.

I’d personally like to see more of them. For example, for most of them, we don’t know what were the reasons that made them not only turn to the dark side but also be willing to hunt down and kill their former Jedi partners. Was it just to assure their own survival or did they have any other motivations? How did they feel about not being Jedi anymore but technically being excluded from the Sith hierarchy?

I don’t think we’ll see another Inquisitor as a protagonist after Fallen Order, but I’m hoping to see them return in The Bad Batch or even the Kenobi series. Any of the stories featuring Inquisitors should be set before ANH, since Tarkin is confident that Vader is the only remaining Force-wielder around.
