Star Wars: Flying Casual
The Inquisitorius is an organization of Force-sensitive agents who work for the Galactic Empire. Members of the Inquisitorius are known as Imperial Inquisitors, Inquisitors, Red Blades and sometimes even Jedi hunters. They’re tasked with hunting down the remaining Jedi who have survived Order 66 at the end of the Clone Wars.
The Inquisitors are trained by Darth Vader, the Emperor’s apprentice, in the ways of the dark side of the Force and wield red lightsabers. They also developed Interrogation chairs to assist in their questioning of suspected rebels or Jedi.
Several of them also study the records of the Jedi Order to familiarize themselves with their enemies’ fighting techniques, making them dangerous fighters. Due to the nature of their mission, Inquisitors have the power to commandeer any required Imperial Military forces, and all officers are to obey their orders. Any Imperial officer who comes into contact with Force-sensitive beings is to immediately contact an Inquisitor to investigate the situation. However, due to Palpatine’s inherent fear of Force-users, the Inquisitors are never made too powerful. In addition, some Imperial officers dislike the interference of Inquisitors, dismissing them as ‘mystics.’
When rumors emerged of a Jedi hiding among pirates in the Outer Rim reached the ears of the Empire, Vader sent the Inquisitor Lord Saul to take care of the problem.
