The Star Wars community is full of talented artists with so much passion for the galaxy far, far away. One of them is Lucas King, who composed a piano and orchestra symphony inspired by Darth Revan.
The masterpiece, which runs for three minutes and 39 seconds, is going to give you goosebumps! It truly captures the evil and menace of the Dark Lord of the Sith, which made fans hope that they will see the character again in the big or small screen. Listen to it below:
A character created for the interactive role-playing game Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic, where players get to control the story, Darth Revan instantly made an impression on fans because he gave Darth Vader a run for his money.
Due to the nature of his introduction, it can be difficult to nail down his origins. For starters, in the game, a player can choose the gender of the character, but the subsequent books and other source material established that Revan is indeed male.
Like Vader, Revan also started out as a promising Padawan. He was the apprentice of Jedi Master Kreia and quickly learned the ways of the Force. In Chronicles of the Old Republic, he was pushed to action by the Jedi council's non-response during the war between the Galactic Republic and the Mandalorian Neo-Crusaders.
He took matters into his own hands and established the Revanchist, which successfully took out the Mandalorians while embracing the dark side in the process. In Knights of the Old Republic, the story is a bit different as it was indicated that his inclination for evil started way early.
Darth Revan was supposed to make an appearance in Star Wars: The Clone Wars, but the idea was scrapped by Dave Filoni and George Lucas, who thought that the scene conflicted with the Force mythology. The character is currently not part of the canon.
Apart from this Darth Revan masterpiece, Lucas King has an entire album of symphonies that you can listen to on Spotify and iTunes. Some more of his Star Wars-inspired compositions include Nihilus, Plagueis, Malak, and yes, even "Darth Jar Jar."
