What To Know About Ray Stevenson’s Star Wars Villain Baylon

Details on Baylon Skoll are fairly scarce, however Dave Filoni did discuss in regards to the lightsaber coloration to Screen Rant at Star Wars Celebration, confirming that it’s largely orange (with a little bit of crimson), and that distinction is essential:

“I didn’t make them just a stark red. I remember as a kid that Vader’s lightsaber kind of fluctuated from visual effects to being a little bit more orange. I didn’t want to go straight up orange, but it’s identifying a little bit of something to kids that they might not straight up be what you think they are in the beginning.”

We do not know precisely who Baylon is, however the trailer for “Ahsoka” does present him dueling the titular former Jedi, and with the lightsaber coloration it’s clear he’s on the very least a Fallen Jedi. Given the rumors that Filoni is constructing as much as a characteristic movie adaptation of Timothy Zahn’s novel “Heir to the Empire,” it is extremely doable Skoll might be a brand new model of the e-book character Joruus C’Baoth. 

Even if he is not, we’ve not actually seen Fallen Jedi within the post-Clone Wars period. Both the online game “Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order” and the 2017-2018 run of “Star Wars: Darth Vader” comics explored the thought of the Empire breaking the spirits and religion of surviving Jedi and turning them to the darkish aspect. While we’ve not actually seen this explored in live-action outdoors of the Inquisitors in “Obi-Wan Kenobi,” it is smart that we’d see Fallen Jedi in “Ahsoka,” on condition that Ahsoka Tano is just not a Jedi, however has seen all of the struggling the Jedi Order brought on — and the ache the Jedi themselves suffered.
