I will succeed where you and Agent Kallus have failed.
―The Fifth Brother to Kassius Konstantine

The Fifth Brother is one of the main antagonists of the second season of Star Wars Rebels.

A big, hulking enforcer, he is among a group of Inquisitors used by the Empire to hunt down any surviving Jedi. Trained in the dark side of the Force, he wields the same model dual-bladed lightsaber as the Grand Inquisitor, revealing in the opportunity to destroy Rebels and Force-wielders alike. He was dispatched by Darth Vader to locate the Ghost crew and Ahsoka Tano to bring them to Justice.



In contrast to the Grand Inquisitor and the Seventh Sister, the Fifth Brother seems merely content to kill any Jedi he found rather than use them for information or traps against the wider rebellion. As a result of this, he is not widely respected by Imperial officials or even his fellow Inquisitors. He is also sadistic, bloodthirsty and brutal, enjoying his occupation as a Jedi hunter and relishing the sport.

The Fifth Brother is a self-assured individual, confident in his ability to succeed where the rank-and-file Imperials and even his predecessor, the Grand Inquisitor, had met defeat. He is less tactically-minded than the Grand Inquisitor or the Seventh Sister, preferring to eliminate his targets at the first opportunity. He also seems to have a hunter-mentality, stating to his colleague "the kill is his" after she prevented him from killing Ezra. He tends to look to the Force more often than the Seventh Sister, sensing his prey and traps. The Fifth Brother is clearly over-confident, often simply walking toward his foe in a battle. Despite this, he is willing to listen to input from his fellow Inquisitors, and even protect them from potential harm. However, he maintains an air of superiority, particularly when his decisions are questioned by his junior partner.

He is clearly ruthless, as he threatened to cut Sabine's throat to force Ezra to comply with his and his partner's orders, as well as being willing to strike down a shipful of innocent bystanders after capturing a Force-sensitive child.

Powers and Abilities


  • The Force: The Fifth Brother has a very strong connection to the Force.
    • Telekinesis: The Fifth Brother can telekinetically move objects or other individuals without physically touching them, and he utilizes it for offensive or defensive purposes. His skill with the ability allowed him to take control of several electronic grenades used by Zeb and Sabine Wren, preventing them from detonating long enough to launch them back at the two rebels and incapacitate them with the resulting explosions.
    • Force Sense: The Fifth Brother can sense another sentient being's emotions, the future, ripples in the Force caused by momentous or traumatic events, impending danger, and the presence of other light or dark side Force-users.
    • Force Jump: The Fifth Brother can jump or leap at great distances.
  • Advanced Strength: The Fifth Brother possesses enough strength to crush a communicator with his hand and effortlessly throw an Ithorian. He was also able to face off against Garazeb Orrelios, a Lasat, on mostly equal grounds.


  • Skilled Lightsaber Duelist: The Fifth Brother is a skilled, albeit slightly clumsy lightsaber duelist. His dueling style has little to no technique, consisting mainly of vicious power strikes, and heavy chops, hacks and slashes. Despite this, he is still a formidable opponent, as he was able to overwhelm Kanan Jarrus with a single power strike. However, his lightsaber combat skills are proven to be inferior to Ahsoka Tano's, who was able to outmaneuver and overpower him relatively easily in mere seconds.
    • Form V: Due to valuing strength-oriented tactics, the Fifth Brother is skilled in Shien/Djem So.
  • Expert Hand-To-Hand Combatant: The Fifth Brother is a highly skilled hand-to-hand combatant.
  • Skilled Pilot: The Fifth Brother is skilled in piloting most types of flying crafts.

Star Wars Rebels

Following the death of the Grand Inquisitor, Darth Vader dispatched the Fifth Brother to hunt down the Rebels. While aboard Admiral Konstantine's ship, the Imperials detected a power signature coming from an abandoned medical station. While Kallus denied the possibility of Rebels, the Fifth Brother didn't and departed to investigate. He arrived just in time to join the Seventh Sister in her pursuit of Ezra Bridger and Sabine Wren, and would have killed the young Jedi Padawan had it not been for the Seventh Sister's intervention. At her suggestion, he went after Sabine with a pair of ID9 Seeker Droids accompanying him and ambushed her and Zeb, capturing the young Mandalorian and left the droids to finish off the Lasat.

Rejoining the Seventh Sister after her failed interrogation of Ezra, the Fifth Brother threatened both him and Sabine in an effort to learn the location of the other Rebels. Upon the pair receiving a communication from "Commander Meiloorun," the Inquisitors intimidated them into instructing their colleagues to join them on the station. Upon reaching the appointed docking bay, however, the "commander" was revealed to be Zeb, who had escaped the Inquisitors' droids and succeeded in rescuing his friends and escaping, with the Fifth Brother powerless to do anything but deflect blaster shots aimed at him and his fellow Inquisitor.

Later, he and the Seventh Sister are revealed to have become partners. During attempts to abduct Force Sensitive children, they ran into Ezra, Zeb, and Kanan Jarrus. The two Inquisitors easily overwhelmed the trio. Suddenly, Ahsoka Tano appeared. Using everything she learned from Anakin Skywalker, Ahsoka easily overwhelmed to two Inquisitors and escaped. To add insult to injury, they found their TIE's destroyed. Suddenly, one of the Seventh Sister's probes appeared and showed a record of Ezra that revealed that the Rebel Network was hiding on Garrel. They take this information to Agent Kallus and Admiral Konstantine. Konstantine is skeptical until Kallus confirmed the lead to be solid. While they ultimately fail to capture the Rebels, they succeed in leaving the Rebel Network with nowhere to hide for a year.

Much later, it is revealed that the two Inquisitors are the cause of this. When they tracked the Jedi to Lothal, The Inquisitors discover a Jedi Temple. Once inside, they were surrounded by Jedi Sentinels and were shocked to see their late leader. After surviving the encounter, they contact their master who arrives. The Fifth Brother told his master the Jedi were getting stronger and Vader assured him it would be their undoing.

The Fifth Brother and the Seventh Sister were contacted by the Eighth Brother to Malachor after he was captured by Kanan and Ahsoka. He and the Sister battle Kanan and Ahsoka but were overpowered when Maul and Ezra arrive, they continued to battle up to the Malachor Sith Temple. With the Seventh Sister murdered by Maul, the Eighth and Fifth Brother tried to stop Maul, but Ahsoka damaged the Fifth Brother's lightsaber; Maul then stabbed him, putting an end to the Fifth Brother.

Obi-Wan Kenobi

The Fifth Brother will make his live-action debut, along with The Grand Inquisitor, in the Disney+ series, Obi-Wan Kenobi, portrayed by Sung Kang.
