So is he some sort of neutral jedi/sith of balance?

(spoiler) At some point in the first Knights of the Old Republic game, you understand that Revan was a part of the dark side with a sith apprentice and everything but you have the choice to either continue that path or redeem yourself to become the savior of the republic and return to be a jedi.

Revan is as close to neutral as it gets. he believes in and understand that the light and dark sides of the force are intertwined in complicated ways, and draws upon both. the least neutral thing about revan is his support for the republic, though he makes his distaste for the current (at the time) jedi thinking clear.

Well he's still a Jedi and is fiercely loyal to the Republic. He holds respect for both the philosophies of the Sith and Jedi, and understands the time and places where one is needed more than the other, but still considers himself a Jedi over-all.

is there a completely neutral jedi/sith with like no strong feelings one way or another just looking for balance or some **** like that?

Mhmm, although they do not have an official title. Basically they're Jedi or Sith that have renounced their order and go into seclusion or into whatever they desire. It tends to come either from a collapse of ideals or simply from growing bored.

While these individuals are technically neutral, they do often have some (although, very little) allegiance to their old order.

I dont care about gettign red thumbs for this, but i honestly dotn like Revan at all. The big reason is all of his fanboys who worship him endlessly thinking hes the greatest person to ever exist. But another big reason is that everyone thinks hes special just because he fell and became a sith then became a jedi agian. Jedi and Sith change factions all the time, why is he so special? Lastly, just because he has been both jedi and sith does NOT mean he is balanced in the force. To truely be balanced you have to understand the difference between both philosophies. Anyone who can be a jedi can be sith. That said, i still like these and would like to see more.

TL DR: I dont think Revan is that special, and i dont like him

It's more of the mastery of balance and how much of a badass he was not just "oh dark side now light side"=Nerd Boner. Not to mention no one gives him **** Malak did once and he cut his jaw off.

comic books, boks, etc.

more commonly from the origninal xbox games SWKOTOR. Star Wars: Knights of the old republic. both one and two, revenge of the sith.

pretty good for semi turned based games, if you liked final fantasy at all, and you like starwars, you need these games.

Revan doesn't actually feature on KoToR II the subtitle for which is "The Sith Lords", not "revenge of the sith" (except for briefly, in a vision)

maybe, im not 100% sure i just own both of them...so never bothered to look up where to find them.

the online version is good place to start considering i think it might have both story lines in it...still though not 100% sure, as i have yet to play the online version.

Agreed, I have absolutely no idea what they were thinking adding in Reven the way they did. I personally think they just "had" to add him cause it was an Old Republic game and everyone wanted Reven. IMO you are right, the Reven the SWTOR is not real lol.

I really enjoy this post, as Revan is one of my favourite Jedi, but I don't believe the second last one is true. Plenty of recorded Jedi fell to the dark side then returned to the light...

It does have to be liscenced by Lucasfilm, but it also has to be decided to be canon. some stuff is portrayed differently in other sources, and sometimes one source overrules another. also, the "infinites" storylines are all liscence, but are specifically non-canon.

even then, luke was a twitchy, caution double-guesser.

where Luke saw a line of good and bad, which he occasionally came too close to, Revan saw a mixture, like a tangle of dark and light threads, intertwined and woven together, with no clear dividing line. instead of fearing one side, he simply drew on both to defend the people he cared about.

Can anyone explain to me why he joined the dark side and why he went back to the light? just interested.

It really depends on who you ask (In the Star Wars universe)

The straight, unbias answer is that he was just a regular Jedi during training and then the Mandalorians attacked from the far-reaches of space. They were brutal, efficient, power hungry, and due to their relentless tactics (even willing to kill and sacrifice innocent people just to make a message) the Republic was nearly brought to its knees. Revan wanted to help with the war effort and pleaded with the council to act but they insisted they were waiting for a bigger threat, and so he got tired of their waiting and rallied up all the Jedi from all the temples that he could and went to help the Republic. He soon became the most powerful foe the ever faced, as he was a military genius with exceptional skill in the force and was eventually granted total control over all Republic military operations. Through-out the course of his campaign he realized that he needed to adopt more brutal and efficient tactics to match the Mandelorians and eventually got even more brutal than they were, finally defeating the last of them and scattering them beyond any hope of revival.

After this he was considered a hero by nearly everyone except the Jedi council and he too came to believe there was a greater threat beyond the rims, and so took the jedi he had and all soldiers who would follow him and looked for it. He eventually encounter the Sith Emperor who warped his mind and turned him to an enemy of the Republic and the Jedi and he came back with a Sith army and conquered until he was eventually beaten back by a strike team, betrayed by his apprentice, and had his mind wiped so he became a formal Republic Solider and worked for them again, slowly becoming a Jedi once more, and the Hero he was to the Republic even after he realized his identify and got his memories back.

*Continued

However, if you ask the Jedi, they would say just that: That he was corrupted by the Emperor and when they wiped his mind they created a new personality and person to serve the light again

But, interestingly enough, if you ask the Sith (more specifically, the Sith who follow his philosophy) they will claim that he never actually fell at all, and was never even controlled by the Emperor (while he might have been 'warped' by his experience), as if you look at his conquests and the methods of his controlling the galaxy, he only targeted very specific planets, leaving planets and cities necessary for economic survival intact, reinstating military outposts, gathering mystic Forges to create machines and warships, and was actually trying to prepare to FIGHT the Emperor and save the Republic even as a Sith Lord, and simply didn't let the Jedi or the rest of the Republic in on his plans because he believed they either wouldn't understand or actually believe him to be evil.

As one of his teachers, Darth Traya, said "The Jedi claim to have re-made him, but they simply wiped away the surface, allowing the real identity without the suffering and trauma to reemerge again. It's what he was, and what he always was: someone willing to go to war in order to protect others"

Revan lead many Jedi to fight the Mandaloreans (cultural group) who were attacing outer-rim planets to provoke the republic. Revan was going against the wishes of the council doing this, but got a large number of Jedi to follow him, and took control of the republic forces as well.

Revan, Malak, and most of the Jedi who went with him disappeared briefly on the edge of the known galaxy at the time (pre-discovery of Cold-War sith Empire) and Revan was corrupted by the Emperor. he went back to the Republic to take over at the beckon of the Emperor (intending to weaken it)

He went back to the light side when he was betrayed by Malak and nearly killed, and captured by the jedi. they erased his memories and re-trained him as an adult Jedi to track down Malak and the Star Forge, which was where malak was getting all his weapons and ships.

These are the only compilations I ever really gave a **** about

You should do one on the Sith Emperor- Not Palpatine, but the enigmatic ************ who turned Revan and Malak before the events of KOTOR, and whom Revan later went on to hunt down.

If not him then like... Someone like the Noghri, or perhaps Grand Admiral Thrawn.

Yeah, its pretty bad ass. His wiki is WAY WORTH the read.
He was known as Darth Vitiate at the age of 14?
He conquered his homeworld at that age.

So, yeah. He was the pureform of the Darkside of the Force.
I really doubt he is dead dead. A mofo that powerful? Naw.

If Palpatine can be reborn in a clone body through the Force, I'm sure he could too. Wonder if he's connected to the Yuuzhan Vong somehow, since they are both from the Unknown.

There should be a book written about Vitiate coming back as Luke becomes the Force Weapon he was intended to be, and Vitiate had waited for that single thing to happen to unfold his new plan of consuming Luke and gaining the power to consume the galaxy.
Or something.

Unsure if you're familiar, but that sounds a lot like the plot of the last season of Avatar: The Legend of Korra. Bad ass, definitely though. I would imagine such a battle would go down in deep space like they were some kind of saiyans.
