Revan Shan is the first Emperor of the Shan Empire and Dynasty. Revan served in the Jedi Order and alongside the Grand Army of the Galactic Republic during the clone wars, first as the Apprentice of Jedi Council Member and Kel'dor Master Plo Koon, and later as the Master to Pedro, Gungi and Katoonie. He is A former Separatist Alliance Commander, and the Leader of the Galactic Free Trading Alliance.
At a Young Age Revan had a Great Understanding of how many things worked, and always loved to savour the feeling of trying to understand something he'd never seen before. He had a Great Love for Battle, likely due to his Mandalorian Heritage, but this Love for battle was not So strong that he was blinded by the pure thrill of it. He had a Highly analytical Mind, and a Keen understanding of Battle and various disciplines such as Echani and Bakuuni Martial Arts.
He was a Master strategist whose Brilliant Tactics and Battle Plans earned him the Title of the Game-Changer, because his strategies and plans completely altered the tide of a sure defeat into a sure victory. He was also incredibly Kind and honest, not uncommon for a Jedi, but when in battle he adopted a devious, Cunning, and Pragmatic approach, while also being extremely Deceptive in battle, likely a by-product of his Mandalorian Heritage. Revan was also extremely Charismatic and Had a Dry and Sarcastic Sense of Humour.
After surviving the Jedi Purge during Order 66, Revan adopted a Highly-Convincing facade of that of a Cruel, Enigmatic, Malevolent, Deceptive, Manipulative, and Capricious Individual. Even Palpatine was taken in, albeit only barely.
After becoming the First Emperor of the Shan Empire, and his Family Dynasty, he used his Heritage as a Direct Descendant of the First Revan and Bastila Shan to rally disgruntled World's and People to his banner, and was well-loved by his subordinates and the people whose regions and planet's he controlled.
After the death of his Wife, Senator Chūchi, he became more Cynical, Stern, and Prone to Sarcasm. He was also a ardent supporter of Individuality and Democracy, and hated Politicking and Social Maneuvering, as shown by his hatred for Militaristic and Expansionist Warmongers like Pantoran Chairman Chi-Cho and Governor Tarkin.
Very little is known about Revan's Early Childhood, other than he was born on the Mandalorian Moon of Concordia amongst Clan Ordo, a prestigious clan loyal to the Death Watch. Revan was sent to the Jedi Temple on Coruscant upon discovery of his Force-sensitivity, upon arrival he was set apart from his fellow younglings, both because of his Mandalorian Heritage and his Long Lineage of Jedi and Republic Heroes. He made friends with Fellow Clawmouse Clan members Ahsoka Tano and Caleb Dume. He was always seen as the Class Prodigy due to his innate Talent and skill.
Studying under Revered Master's
At age Twelve Revan was studying Lightsaber Blade work under Mace Windu and Cin Drallig. While studying under these two Master's he discovered that He could flawlessly perform Vapaad and Juyo Combat Manoeuvers without any prior Instruction in the two Forms. This proved greatly alarming to the Council, especially when his Mandalorian Heritage and namesake were taken into account. In response to this it was decided that Mace Windu would Teach him How to use Vapaad, and Cin Drallig would Instruct him in using Niman in conjunction with the Aggressive Blade Work of Vapaad and Juyo.
Eventually Revan would become a master of using the Jedi Mind Trick Technique, as well as the Rare Battle Meditation Ability. He would go on to further refine the Mind Trick under Obi-Wan Kenobi and Ki-Adi Mundi, while he would Learn more about Battle Meditation from ancient Holocrons. Revan soon went on to construct his own Personal Lightsaber, which was a Dual-Blade Saber.
Becoming a Padawan

After one adventure to Dorin against a secret Separatist Weapon project, Revan and His friend and elite ARC Trooper Named Trantos fought in the Battle of Pzandis which ended in the weapon's Destruction. Eventually Revan would become Plagued by visions of His Family not long after the battle. These Visions were mostly Peaceful for about a week before becoming Violent.
Last of his Maternal Line
When the Council refused his request to answer his questions about his Mother's Heritage he broke into the Jedi Temple's records and found his Mother was a Descendant of Canderous Ordo, also known as Mandalore the Preserver. He found her last known location was the planet Concordia, one of Mandalore's Moons. Upon ending his Violation of Rules He was discovered by the Temple Guards, a fight soon broke out Between the Padawan and guardsmen With Revan Fleeing Coruscant and heading to Mandalore directly.
Revan Landed on Mandalore and Sought an Audience with Duchess Satine. He revealed his Mandalorian Heritage and that he sought to find out why after years among the Jedi he only just started receiving visions of his Family, the family he never knew. She directed him to Governor Pre Viszla Concordia's Leader and her closest ally.
Revan Arrived on Concordia and Met with Viszla privately. Almost immeadiately after meeting Viszla in private, Revan sensed something Off in Viszla's nature. Confronting Viszla, he discovered that his host was the Leader of the Death Watch Rebel Group, and that his mother was one of his Lieutenant's and that she had been killed by the Hutt Cartel Boss Jabba the Hutt's Men. He revealed that Justice had been taken upon her killers and gifted his Mother's Father's Armor to him. Revan chose to embrace his Mandalorian Heritage and such carry more than just a Lightsaber, he would carry Blaster Pistols, Rifles, Carbines, Assault Cannons, and Force Pikes. He particularly favored the weapons used by Jango Fett, such as Sabredarts, Westar-34's, Jetpacks, and other Anti-Jedi and Mandalorian Weaponry.
Revan asked Viszla if his Mother ever regretted giving him to the Jedi Order, and Viszla simply gave him a Cargo Crate with his Mother's belongings. He decided that since he had gained some peace of mind he would return to the Jedi Order, and asked Viszla to Initiate him into the Death Watch.
Mysteries of Orto Plutona
Revan soon left Mandalorian Space and returned to the Jedi Order and faced his punishment. He was soon deployed to Orto Plutona alongside Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker. He was assigned as the Republic Militaries Liason to the Senate and Pandora in particular.

He was strongly opposed Chairman Cho's Xenophobia and Militaristic Expansionist Attitude, and Had him forcibly removed from the Decisions over what to do. He would repeatedly insult the chairman, question his morals, ethics, and honor. After Cho lay dying and demanded Revan's Help in saving him, Riyo stripped him of all his authority before Revan put him out of his misery. Peace was then established between Pantora and the Talz, and Senator Chūchi left as a Stronger person and Representative, and possessed an immensley growing attraction to Revan.
Old Friends become New Lovers, albiet briefly
Revan was soon reunited with his old friend Ahsoka Tano, with whom he shared a Mutual attraction as a Youngling. Revan by that time was a Jedi Knight while Ahsoka was still a Padawan. Revan soon became Ahsoka's Lover, and Attended the Peace Summit on Mandalore between the Republic and Confederacy of Independent System's. When Lux Bonteri breached the Summit to accuse Count Dooku of Duplicity in his mother's murder, both he and Ahsoka intervened in his execution and Saved him. Due to his status as Death Watch he already knew of Bonteri's deal with them. He helped Bonteri to Carlacc and Warmly embraced Bo-Katan Kryze and Viszla as family, giving Ahsoka Doubts about his loyalty.
Revan Ultimately ended his relationship with Ahsoka after catching her and Lux passionately kissing in private. He cited it as sufficient cause to break things off. Upon his return to Coruscant Revan took an interest in three particular younglings. He had also begun a secret relationship with Bo-Katan.
Joining the Confederacy of Independent System's
After the Carlacc Incident Revan undertook a Six Month-long infiltration Of the Confederacy of Independent System's, gaining The trust and confidence of Confederacy leadership, Count Dooku amongst them. The first few months were harsh, and Revan was put through brutal Training Regimen's for the most part of his brief introduction to the CIS. Revan had spent months emersing himself in Dark Side energies prior to his "Defection", so as to make his targets more convinced of his sincerity. After three months of training he was dispatched to the War-torn World of Christophsis, if he won the battle, his loyalty would be more readily believed.
Revan still felt conflicted about the Need to Kill his supposed Enemies, but he knew his Mission: To get with Striking Distance of Dooku's Sith Master and cut him down. But as he gradually fought his emotions on his way to Christophsis, the Dark Side and his own Inner Darkness Took hold of him and made him willingly embrace the Dark Side. As a Result Revan would Gain the Characteristics of a Sith Lord, i.e Red Eyes, Pale chalky white skin and other looks. He quickly took hold of His Ancestor and Namesake's Mask, and Became Lord Revan. He was Dooku's Informal Apprentice, and an Assassin of the Sith.
Corrupt Leadership and Bad Planning
Upon Arrival on Christophsis Revan Learned that Obi-Wan Kenobi and captured General Loathsome into surrendering, a crippling blow to the Separatist War effort. He immeadiately launched an Offensive with aid from the Trade Federation and Techno Union drawing Republic forces away from Loathsome's location so that Revan could Break him out of Jail and Return him to Separatist Command. Revan discovered that the majority of Loathsomes Lieutenant's were Corrupt to the Very Core and Promptly executed them all. He then replaced them with Officers he had Hand-Picked himself, namely General Turbrodt Trench, brother of the Nerfarious Admiral Trench, he also chose Gen'Dai Bounty Hunter and Assassin, a Fallen Chiss Force-Sensitive called Sev'rance Tann, and a Mandalorian Bounty Hunter called Kqhomo Fett, the Nephew of Jango Fett and Cousin of Boba Fett. Kqhomo was a Master Infiltrator, Sharpshooter, and Hand-to-Hand Combat, so Revan made Kqhomo the Leader of the Separatist Infiltration and Sabotage and Assassination Squad. He meanwhile made the Leader of the Separatist Artillery, while also making Sev'rance Tann his Student, Lover and his Second-in-Command, and appointing Turbrodt the Leader of Separatist Ground Forces.
Leading the Campaign and Future Protection
Revan had ascess to the Finest Separatist Assets, but he had gotten a hold on his emotions and Hid some of his Forces in Impenetrable bunkers connected to Vaults that already contained Thousands of Cryogenically Frozen Clone Troopers based off of Jango's Genes with no Additional Augmentations, as well as Those of Kqhomo, and several Yinchorri, as he suspected that following the Wars End he may need an army at his disposal, he had already locked up Thousands of Republic Walkers, Starfighters, Speeders, Weapons, Gunships, and other Equipment in Numerous Hidden Location's. He also Hid a Number of Republic and Separatist Fleet's in Deep Space, on Standby waiting for the Call to Arms. He knew that even if the Republic would have won, the Sith would have spent Decades infiltrating the Senate prior to their big reveal. So he had several Contigency Plans in preparation.
Revan also Began to learn that There was someone connected to Chancellor Palatine that was working for or was in actuality the Sith Lord Dooku answered to. He would pass this information on to the Jedi before Continuing his Mission.
A Seasoned and Celebrated Commander
By the start of the Second Year of the War, Revan had become one of the Separatists best Commander's, and was a celebrated Hero to the Confederacy. But his Loyalty to the Republic and the Jedi Order become hard to Bear as he was introduced to Darth Sidious by Count Dooku, and knew immeadiately it was Chancellor Palpatine. He quickly learned from Palpatine that he would be a highly valued asset were he to side with him when he enacts the Long-awaited Revenge of the Order of the Sith Lords. Knowing that such a offer could allow him to survive the War's end unhindered, he knew he could use it to his advantage. He ultimately agreed and Was assigned his next mission to Head to Onderon and assist King Rash In his Rules alongside the Super Tactical Droid Kalani.
Revan knew that with a position as Palpatine's Left Hand he could amass a sizeable fortune and army that could assist him and other like-minded Dissadents and Rebels in eventually overthrowing Palpatine and Bringing back the Republic. He also knew that as a Hand of Palpatine he would have ascess to major developments and intel, and would be able to Use his position of power to Weaken the Empire and remove it's top Leaders.

He would cover up his Activities by Claiming to Be searching for a powerful but Elusive presence in the Force when questioned by his allies. He made each call through the force more powerful than the Last. And used reprogrammed Magnaguards to assist him, so that he could amplify his call with extreme pain, he wanted to be tortured so that Ahsoka would come for him. As despite all that had happened between them, he still had some degree of feelings for her.
A Not so Warm Reunion
Seven Days after starting his Torture Routines, Ahsoka finally came to discover the source of the Entity calling to her. She Found Revan Chained up and Being tortured via Electrocution, promptly cut down the Magnaguards doing it and Went to release him before hesitating.

Despite his numerous Escapes, and after each time only aiding the Rebels, The Rebels found it hard to trust him until the Jedi Council revealed his Assignment was to get within striking distance of Dooku's Master.
Revan's Time amongst the Sith as a Dark Jedi had left its mark on him, and while his skin had returned education to normal as well as his eyes, he couldn't properly execute the Movements and Techniques of Vaapad and Juyo as well as he once had. He would go on to create an Advanced variant of Moving Meditation and Battle Meditation, an ability that he would come to call Moving Combat Meditation.

Gungi was Honorable, like many Wookiees, Pedro had a steak of Overconfidence and Borderline Arrogance, a dangerous thing for a Jedi in a time of war, and Katoonie had a Kind heart. He found that they could each follow on of the Paths he had taken. He knew Pedro would love to be a Warrior, but Revan insisted he observe and participate in the other paths before choosing, he knew Katoonie would be hard-pressed not to join the Many Paths of a Jedi Consular, and Gungi had the Skill to become a Member of the Jedi Sentinels. He would frequently instruct Katoonie in the Techniques of Soresu, Makashi, and Niman, while also instructing her in Echani Martial Arts.
He would frequently Teach Pedro basic Shi-Cho, Ataru, and Djem Sõ Techniques, while also making the most of His Natural Talent for Combat by assigning him to the Coruscant Guard as a Observer, taking away his Students Lightsaber and giving him a basic instruction and understanding of Bakuuni Martial arts for protection.

He also used a Spoty and ancient Design of the Power Guard Enhancement System's to Gain a decisive advantage over the Empire when the Time came. While he would use the Latter program to design improvements to the TIE Series Starfighter, such advancements would come to include the TIE Defenders, Aggressors, Hunters, Oppressors, Phantoms, Shadows, Wraiths, Spectres, and Assassins.
