Ever since the teaser trailer released in May 2022, and even up to the release date in April 2023, fans of Star Wars Jedi: Survivor were wondering about who was inside the bacta tank, and with the game here we can say exactly who it is.

Star Wars Jedi: Survivor is a sequel to the surprise hit, Jedi: Fallen Order, which was released back in 2019, introducing us to Order 66 survivor Cal Kestis and his adventures across the galaxy, as he comes into his own as a Jedi.

Whether you've played the game already and forgot, or you're just wondering, learn more about who is in the bacta tank.

SPOILER WARNING There are some story spoilers for Star Wars Jedi: Survivor in this guide.

Who is in the Star Wars Jedi Survivor bacta tank?

With the game now being playable, we know that the bacta tank in Star Wars Jedi: Survivor contains a lost member of the Jedi Order called Dagan Gera, who was alive during the Gigh Republic era of the SW universe.

After letting him out, we find out that Dagan Gera has turned to the dark side of the force, causing him to try and fight Cal. Fast-forward through the encounter, and you beat Gera, forcing him to flee.

Later on in this story, you'll learn more about Dagan, even encountering him again, though we won't spoil his ultimate role in the game's story.

There were various theories about who the person in the tank was prior to launch, with some thinking it was Taron Malicos or even Starkiller from the Force Unleashes games.

That's our coverage of who is in the bacta tank in Star Wars Jedi: Survivor, and now you know it's a new character called Dagan Gera.
