Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker Makes KOTOR's Darth Revan Canon
SPOILERS AHEAD for Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker!Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker has officially made Darth Revan from BioWare's Knights of the Old Republic canon, as a legion of Sith Troopers were named after him.As reported by ScreenRant, the official Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker Visual Dictionary reveals that each 5,000-strong legion of Emperor Palpatine's Sith Troopers, which are part of his Final Order, are named after an ancient Sith Lord.One such legion, "The 3rd: Revan Legion" all but confirms that Darth Revan, who was part of one of the best twists in video game history, was once a Sith Lord in the official canon of Star Wars.According to the Visual Dictionary, "only the Sith Eternal cultists know the significance" of the names of these ancient Sith Lords, and we can only hope that one day they will share their knowledge with the galaxy. Who knows, maybe in the Knights of the Old Republic film that is reportedly in the works at Lucasilm?Revan was not the only name mentioned, as it was also confirmed that Sith Lords Andeddu, Tanis, Tenebrous, Phobos, and Desolous also had Sith Trooper legions named after them. Darth Phobos and Desolous both appeared in The Force Unleashed games.This isn't the first Knights of the Old Republic crossover into the current canon, as the Hammerhead-class cruiser that was first introduced in the 2003 classic played a pivotal role in the events of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.For more on Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, be sure to check out our review, our explainer of the ending, and the 34 best Easter Eggs, callbacks, and references.
