    Apologies, the title has an errant "c", it should be "Marrok" with no c.

    The name of this character has been officially confirmed at the props display at SDCC '23.

    The mystery Inquisitor seen in the trailers dueling Ahsoka.

    Interesting. I'm excited to see who this character is and what his/her motivation is. I hope it's a previously known character like Barriss Offee, but Marrok is probably a new character.

    I honestly think at this point Filoni’s abandoned any notion of finishing Barriss story

    I truly believe this is the Eighth Brother. His signature saw like saber was lost on Malachor, and he may have reverted to his old name and abandoned his designation with the end of the Inquisitorius... but his armor and weapon makes the reference logical, I think. True, could be someone completely different, but sometimes the obvious answer is the right one.

    The fact her crest was seen in The Mandalorian would suggest otherwise.

    I will be happy, returning character or not, if this character has any role to play beyond just getting killed in two seconds similarly to Maul or the Inquisitor in the TotJ series.

    The Inquisitorius as a whole has been disappointing to me outside of the Grand Inquisitor, and sometimes I think it would have been better if he had been the only one, in the same capacity as Asajj was to the Sith.

    I think the inquistors have been pretty lame outside the 2nd sister and Grand Inquistor

    Agreed, though I actually didn't mind the ninth sister either. That said, the Grand Inquisitor in Obi-wan was REALLY lame as well.

    Oh I don’t mind the ninth either. She serves a purpose in those games. But I don’t like her nearly as much as I do the Grand or the Second. I feel that if Marrock is a new character he will die pretty fast.

    the inquistors were pretty pointless in Kenobi and after Rebels in season 2. I honestly think they should have made the GI the overarching villian of the first two seasons of Rebels. And removed the eighth, seventh and fifth inquistors.

    They can be handled well as seen by the Star Wars Jedi: games. I just don’t trust Filoni to do it as he didn’t handle them well in season 2.

    this all assumes Marrock is a new character. If he’s an existing character then I expect him to be handled better.

    I honestly think they are just secondary characters. When the Tales Inquisitor was shown, I understood the comments about wasting a great design; on the other hand, I think Lucasfilm was simply thinking "we have this character that will have less than 5 minutes of screen time and is only there to make Ahsoka look good. How do we make him memorable?". This is why the Second Sister is a favorite, I think: in Jedi Order, she wasn't secondary.

    With this Marrok, my first feeling in the teaser was that he's there to end the first episode on a high note, but the trailer shows him dueling Ahsoka in a different location. Hopefully we´ll get to know a little more about him before his role in the story is fulfilled.

    I just remember Rogue One where they were doing interviews with Gareth Edwards I think and he said one of his favorite new characters was that U-Wing gunner that makes the ape vocalizations. And the character gets a name, pictures of him are released. And he is a completely inconsequential character.

    I think that kind of stuff has happened a couple of times. So we saw a new Inquisitor, people speculated as to why one was still around and who could it be. The idea that Barriss was still running around was an interesting thought, but then they come out with the character’s name, a better picture of the character, you can see what their lightsaber looks like, etc. And yet I feel like there’s a 50% chance this character dies in the episode in which they are introduced without their name ever actually stated on screen.

    Hope that Marrok will be a sneaky type of antagonist that is able to effectively oppose Ahsoka by using tricks and wit, while not being on the same power level with her.

    His lightsaber’s asymmetrical design makes me wonder if it got a gimmick like other Inquisitors; there’s already a “splits in two” Inquisitor lightsaber, but maybe this one becomes a shoto and a regular lightsaber for an interesting “mirror match” with Ahsoka?

    Your all wrong I know who Marrock is thanks to my rewatch if TCW.

    that’s right! Marrok is none other than Embo’s dog! MARROK!

    you can thank me later for this tremendous theory.

    For me the question of where this Inquisitor's been hiding is more fascinating than Baylan or Shin.

    I won't be surprised if in some future visual guide Hidalgo will reveal that originally "Marrok" is a name of a well-known hunter god and both Embo's friend and Inquisitor are named after this one.

    It’s out there that from semi-offical sources that Marrock is in a couple of episodes.
