Story: Before the rise of Darth Vader and fall of the Jedi temple, there was one knight that legends speak of as one of the greatest warrior’s to ever use the power of the force and hold a lightsaber. This legend was a master of both the skills and arts of the Jedi and Sith, this making him one of the first knights to ever switch sides. His name was Darth Revan.
Creating: With all the research of looking into the backstory of Darth Revan, I wanted to capture this moment of where he is thinking on what path of the force he’s going to follow and fight for. With placing his lightsabers closely to his face and in front of his shoulders, I wanted the colors of the saber’s to represent conscience and temptation (like where you see an angel and demon on someone’s shoulder’s telling them what to do). So with the purple lightsaber it was about what the Jedi believed in, this being peace and justice across the galaxy which then the color of purple brings a sense of wisdom, dignity and devotion. For the red lightsaber which the Sith mainly use to representing their power and control of the galaxy, the red then brings a sign of danger, determination and war.
Facts: Based from the Star Wars games of The knights of the old republic 2003 and the old republic 2011, Revan is a character that many Star Wars fans of the two consider him to be one of best characters ever made to the franchise and are hoping to see him return or one day on screen.
. With Revan’s history of being trained as a young Jedi in the beginning, in his training years Revan had grown up with so much knowledge towards the force and learning its power. Years later Revan was fighting in Madalorian war and would fight the leader of the Madalorian and end the war (which the mask he wears was wore by a Madalorian warrior), this then would lead him down the path to becoming a very powerful Sith lord, but his destiny wasn’t finished just yet. After being betrayed by another Sith lord Darth Malak, Revan had gotten his memory wiped by Jedi warriors and would re-train him to becoming a Jedi knight again. Back to being a Jedi, Revan then fought in the Jedi civil war and started to get parts of his memory back of being a Sith lord but stayed to being a Jedi. After the war, Revan married a Jedi warrior called Bastila Shan which marriage is against the Jedi order but was approved for them both to be together and stay loyal to the Jedi council.
. Revan was trained by 4 masters of the force in his life. Revan’s first teacher was Jedi master Kreia which she would teach Revan the way of the force, but her teachings were looked upon and grew concern by the Jedi council and would pass Revan over to other Jedi Master learn new ways of the force by Lestin, Dorak and Arren Kae.
