The Grand Inquisitor is the main antagonist of the first season of the television series Star Wars: Rebels. Five years before the first Star Wars movie, A New Hope, The Inquisitor was tasked with the job to seek out and assassinate any remaining Jedi in the galaxy. The one who gave him such a task is none other than the Supreme Imperial Commander Darth Vader, who takes his role of the primary antagonist after he died in battle. He is voiced by Jason Isaacs, who also portrayed Lucius Malfoy and Captain Hook.
The nameless Grand Inquisitor, as aforementioned, serves for the Galactic Empire, specifically its second most powerful entity, Darth Vader. Despite not being a Sith in general, the Grand Inquisitor knows a lot about the Force and has practiced on the dark side. He was tasked by Vader to execute any surviving Jedi he discovered with an endless army of Stormtroopers under his command on the orders of Vader's master Emperor Palpatine. The Grand Inquisitor is also tasked on finding younglings around the galaxy who are strong with the Force so that they will not become Jedi. During the series, he became bent on killing Kanan Janus (a Jedi Padawan) and his turning his apprentice Ezra Bridger (the protagonist of the series) to the dark side.
The Pau'an male known as the Grand Inquisitor hailed from the planet Utapau, where he born over fifteen years prior to the Invasion of Naboo. After Darth Sidious, publicly known as Supreme Chancellor Palpatine, transformed the Galactic Republic into the Galactic Empire and declared himself Emperor, the Grand Inquisitor came into the service of the Empire and the Sith. Though not a Sith himself, the Inquisitor was tasked with hunting down and eliminating any Jedi who had survived Order 66, the order given to the Grand Army of the Republic by Darth Sidious to destroy the Jedi Order. To accomplish this task, the Grand Inquisitor was trained in the ways of the dark side of the Force and studied the records of the Jedi Temple in order to defeat his enemies.
At one point, the Grand Inquisitor spoke via hologram with Darth Vader, the Dark Lord of the Sith, who told the Jedi hunter that the Emperor had foreseen a new threat rising against him. Vader told him that the threat was the "children of the Force" and that they could not be allowed to become Jedi. The Dark Lord ordered the Grand Inquisitor to hunt them down and either make them join the Empire or destroy them, along with any Jedi survivors who could train them—as these were the orders of the Emperor. With the order given, the Grand Inquisitor told Vader that it would be done. One method that the Inquisitor used to find Force-sensitive individuals was to look for cadets at the Imperial Academy on Lothal who met a set of criteria, one that indicated their ability to use the Force.

This places him as a peer to Clone Wars era Ahsoka Tano, who can fight defensive battles against Asajj Ventress and General Grievous. He should therefore be capable of such speeds.
