The Star Wars Episode 7 leaks keep coming, and fans are now beginning to form a fairly comprehensive picture of what will happen in one of the most highly anticipated movies of all time.

Also, among what has been officially leaked or revealed, there are quite a few rumors floating around. Let's take a look at what we can piece together:

The Inquisitor: Sith Assassin for Star Wars Episode 7

One of the most high profile leaks to come out of Star Wars Episode 7 so far is this blurry image of the Sith Inquisitor:

A tall, thin Sith in a black hood, the Inquisitor has red, glowing eyes and a face that is more metal than flesh.

And whose helmet is he holding? That's right, it's Darth Vader, which he must surely have found in the funeral pyre that Luke left on Endor in Return of the Jedi.

By all account the inquisior is a Sith Assassin, a secretive and power hunger group who ran mission for Vader, some of which we expected to see in flashback - which means of course, that Darth Vader himself is expected to return.

Jason Isaacs, who voiced an inquisitor in Star Wars Rebels, described them as:

cold...analytical...[someone who] doesn't get angry... When The Inquisitor shows up, it means something significant and it’s a definite challenge for our heroes.

And the above picture isn't the once source hinting that the Sith Inquisitor is likely to be the main villain for [Star Wars: Episode VII](movie:711158), director J.J. Abrams also tweeted this picture of a robotic hand - at first, many believed it to be Luke, but could it not be the Inquisitor metal claw?

Luke Skywalker - Captive, Recluse, Jedi

And now that we're on to Luke, there are a number of theories about what he will be up to in Star Wars 7. After the Star Wars shoot went to the barren Irish Island of Skellig Michael, one fan theory going around was that Luke Skywalker has become a Jedi recluse, living on his own out in the wilderness in much the same way the Obi-Wan did at the start of A New Hope.

Another theory (claiming to come from a leaked script) was that at the start of the movie one of the new characters finds Luke Skywalker's missing hand falling through space, decides to find its owner, and eventually tracks Luke down only to find him already captured by none other than the Jedi-hunting Inquisitor himself!

Whether any, some, or all of these theories are true, we will just have to wait and see. But from the way he is staring at Vader's helmet, it seems clear this won't be the last we see of the Inquisitor.
