Reva (Moses Ingram) was depicted initially as a dangerous enemy of Ewan McGregor’s exiled Jedi master. She is a member of the organization called Inquisitorius, an elite squad of force-sensitive Jedi hunters reporting directly to Darth Vader, whose job it is to eliminate any survivors of Order 66. But as the series progressed, the audience discovered that there is more to Reva than initially met the eye, and fans subsequently started to sympathize with her as her tragic past was revealed.

Fans learned how during the twilight years of the Republic, Reva had been a Padawan learner and was almost a victim of Anakin Skywalker falling to the dark side and rampaging the Jedi Temple on Coruscant. Since early on in the series, Reva had been shown hunting Obi-Wan, but eventually, it is revealed in a shocking plot twist that her actual goal is to avenge her fallen younglings by destroying Darth Vader.

However, the series finale saw Vader defeating her in battle, and Reva consequently turning her rage towards Vader’s son, Luke, albeit briefly. She soon realizes how wrong it would be to make an innocent child pay for their father’s evil deeds. Reva’s character arc in the series ends on what can be called an optimistic note. She makes the decision to leave her life as an Inquisitor behind and follow a better path, encouraged by Obi-Wan.

A future in Star Wars for Moses Ingram?

Fans are so impressed by the character arc of Reva that they are asking for a spin-off series. Even the makers of the show have hinted that Moses Ingram’s Star Wars journey isn’t over yet. Although the actor herself chose to remain tight-lipped when interviewed by Radio Times. When asked if she would ever return as Reva, Ingram said: “I guess, but who knows? You never know. I don’t know.”

Originally reported by Screen Geek, it’s been weeks since the Reva spin-off rumors started doing the rounds across the internet. But it would be wise to not pin one’s hopes on these rumors alone unless Disney makes an official announcement. Although with the rapidly expanding Star Wars universe on Disney+, it wouldn’t be surprising to see Ingram given her own solo project.
