Last week a ton of Star Wars: Episode VII news was exploding all over the place. One of the main pieces of information included who the villains in the story would be. Indie Revolver now has a piece of concept art featuring the main villain. If you don't want to see the art or know any other information about him, then don't read ahead or scroll to the bottom because there are SPOILERS ahead!
The main villain is a Sith Inquisitor, and the site describes him as being "tall and thin and terrifyingly creepy, with glowing red eyes to match his red lightsaber." They go on to say that he’s "got some robotic upgrades, like Vader – but no mask. The cybernetic bits weave in and out of him. He’s got a human upper lip, a steel jaw… and the robotic hand that J.J. Abrams posted an image of." You can see that image here.
We’ll get a background of this character in some flashbacks that will include a young Princess Leia and Darth Vader’s involvement with the Sith during his prime. Apparently, this Inquisitor has a fascination with Vader, and as you will see, in the concept art below he's looking at Vader's shattered helmet.
This is kind of a terrifying-looking character, and I'm excited to see what he looks like when he's brought to life.
