The Sixth Brother is an Inquisitor and the the main antagonist of Star Wars Disney novel, Ahsoka. He was eventually killed by Ahsoka Tano. In appearance, he was gray and had distinctive markings, making him sinister in appearance.
Arrogant and sadistic, the Sixth Brother had no qualms about killing those who stood in his way to draw out his prey, force surrender or obtain information. He was very good at espionage and interrogation, and was easily annoyed by the incompetence of Imperial Interrogators. He also was avid in his hunt for Jedi, and was willing to overlook a force-sensitive child he was seeking in order to hunt a Jedi.
Powers and abilities
- The Force: The Sixth Brother was very powerful and had a very strong connection to the Force. Although he was not quite as powerful as Anakin Skywalker/Darth Vader at his peak, the Sixth Brother was still one of the most powerful Force-users of his time. He did not rely on his power very much however, as he preferred brute strength to his abilities.
- Lightsaber Skills: The Sixth Brother was highly skilled in lightsaber combat and a highly gifted duelist. Although he was not quite as skilled as Anakin Skywalker/Darth Vader, the Sixth Brother was still one of the greatest lightsaber duelists of his time. Despite being an elite Inquisitor, his skills were inferior to Ahsoka Tano's as the ex-Jedi proved to be more than a match for him, ultimately killing the Sixth Brother by causing his lightsaber to overload.
Weapons and Equipment
The Sixth Brother's valued weapon and possession is his red lightsaber.
- Double-bladed spinning lightsaber: The Sixth Brother had built a red double-bladed spinning lightsaber. It would remain in his possession until his death, when his lightsaber exploded due to Ahsoka Tano stealing the lightsaber's kyber crystals while it was activated; after the Sixth Brother's death; Ahsoka Tano took his lightsaber components and imbued the Kyber crystals with the Light side of the Force to construct her two white-bladed lightsabers. The Kyber crystals in the Sixth Brother's lightsaber were taken from the Jedi Temple, as Ahsoka could recognize them through the Force.
Role in Ahsoka
At one point a Jedi, the Sixth Brother fell to the Dark side and swore loyalty to the Sith and the Galactic Empire. Trained by Darth Vader alongside the other Inquisitors, he began hunting down surviving Jedi and Force-sensitives. To this end, he studied records taken from the Jedi Temple to further combat his enemies.
During an assignment to track down a Force-sensitive little girl named Hadala Fardi on the planet of Thabeska, the Sixth Brother heard about a Jedi on the farming moon of Raada, where he learned from Jenneth Pilar, an information broker working with the Empire on the moon, that a Jedi or Padawan had been involved in an uprising by a local farmer community opposing the Empire's plans for Raada. During the uprising, teenage farm worker Kaeden Larte had been captured and tortured for information. The Brother scoffed at the techniques used on Larte by the imperial officers stationed on Raada, which proved ineffective. The Sixth Brother learned that Larte was then broken out of the Imperial base by a Force-sensitive being; the former jedi Ahsoka Tano.
The Sixth Brother then tracked Larte and the other farm workers who rebelled against the Imperial presence to a set of mountain caves far from the settlement. Kaeden surrendered herself to the Inquisitor, but her friends soon attacked the Dark side Adept. The Sixth Brother deflected the attacks of the farmers, killing them with sickening ease. As a show of strength to further intimidate Kaeden Larte, the Sixth Brother then threw his lightsaber at the Rodian farmer, Kolvin, who was instantly cut in half and killed.
When Ahsoka Tano returned to Raada, she discovered that the the Sixth Brother had kidnapped Kaeden. Ahsoka was also in the process of rebuilding her lightsabers, and heard the kyber crystals in the Brother's double-bladed lightsaber sing to her through the the Force. During her battle with the Sixth Brother, Ahsoka used the Force to pull the crystals from his lightsaber. His lightsaber then became unstable and exploded, killing the Sixth Brother once and for all.
