Once a powerful Sith lord, Revan was stripped of power and memory. Revan later became a Jedi, relearning the ways of the force. When Revan learned of his past as a Sith, he deemed both Jedi and Sith to be narrow-minded. While Jedi and Sith practiced only the light side or the dark side respectively, Revan dedicated himself to all aspects of the force.
He later attempted to end the reign of the Sith Emperor, but was betrayed by his ally, Lord Scourge, and was locked in stasis for the next 300 years.
300 years later, an organization on the Imperial planet of Dromund Kaas, called the Revanites, studied Revan's unique views of the force. The Dark Council saw this as an act of treason, and the Revanites were forced into hiding deep in the jungle.
Not long after the Revanites on Dromund Kaas were dealt with, heroes of the Republic rescued Revan from stasis, and he went on to discover the Foundry and attempted to use it to annihilate the Sith Empire, but was killed by an Imperial strike team.
When he was killed, his light-sided half was ready to become one with the Force, but his dark-sided half refused, and continued on to become the leader of the Revanites, and attempted to use them to destroy both the Empire and the Republic, but was stopped by a coalition of both forces brought together by his descendant, Theron Shan, the Sith Lord Lana Beniko, and a heroic individual who would later be known as the Outlander. When he was defeated, his two halves merged and he finally became one with the Force.
- Revan wielded two lightsabers, one red, and one violet. However, his minifigure only uses a red one.
- Revan's mask is Mandalorian in origin and is somewhat similar to Kylo Ren's.
