Tari Darkspanner is the fictional Sith and founder of the Order of Revan developed by BioWare for the MMORPG Star Wars: The Old Republic. She learned about the mysteries surrounding Darth Revan on Korriban. She mistakenly believed that Revan had secretly supplanted Vitiate as Emperor of the Sith and that the Sith Dark Council later secretly usurped power from Revan and held him captive. Believing Revan to be the true Emperor, Tari founded the Order of Revan.
Tari valued power. She rationalized her beliefs by claiming that
a madwoman [couldn't] have achieved so much power and by claiming that witnesses to power oughtn't
still doubt. Tari recognized the strength Morrun Dokaas had with the Force, so she trained him as her apprentice, even though training a Chagrian as such Morrun was against the norms of the Sith Empire. Tari recognized the utility of powerful followers.
You who have died and been reborn – stand before me now.
You who have reclaimed the ancient past – stand before me now.
You who have demonstrated power and wisdom to my followers – look upon the Master of the Order of Revan.— Tari Darkspanner, in Star Wars: The Old Republic
I stumbled upon the mysteries of Revan on Korriban, when I became a Sith. That started me down a terrible path.— Tari Darkspanner, in Star Wars: The Old Republic
Revan came to Dromund Kaas after being reborn. Some believe Revan died at the hands of our Emperor. I believe otherwise.
I believe Revan overthrew the Emperor and has sat secretly on the throne for three centuries. Aside from our order, only the Dark Council knows the truth.— Tari Darkspanner, in Star Wars: The Old Republic
I have heard whispers in the Citadel. For decades, the Emperor has been in seclusion; the Dark Council no longer speaks with him.
The only explanation is this: The Dark Council betrayed their leader and locked Emperor Revan away, seizing power for themselves. They seek to silence us because we know.— Tari Darkspanner, in Star Wars: The Old Republic
You must walk the path of Revan on your own. The path to power – the path neither Jedi nor Sith.
May the Force be with you. May it make you strong.— Tari Darkspanner, in Star Wars: The Old Republic
You've seen the power of Revan's path. Do you really still doubt?— Tari Darkspanner, in Star Wars: The Old Republic
Could a madwoman have achieved so much power? Believe in me. Believe in the path of Revan.— Tari Darkspanner, in Star Wars: The Old Republic
Commentary from others
For decades, I have served the Master. He found me when I was a larva and saw that I was strong in the Force.
Against the Empire's traditions, he trained me. This is the way of Revan – to teach all species the path to power.— Morrun Dokaas, in Star Wars: The Old Republic
Why do you think Revan trained aliens in the ways of the Sith? Why did Revan offer power to all seekers?
[It gave him an edge.] Revan knew that servants are more useful when they're powerful.
[It was just.] He believed everyone should have the chance to aspire to power.
You answer well. You answer wisely. You speak like a true Revanite.
Your answer is not my answer. But it is… sufficient. It is worthy of a Revanite.— Morrun Dokaas and the player, in Star Wars: The Old Republic
Never forget that Revan was Sith. And there is no kindness among the Sith.— Morrun Dokaas, in Star Wars: The Old Republic
