Like how Revan moved from legends to canon, are there any other characters in this game that moved to canon yet or is he still pretty much the only one?

Revan was always canon. Only idiots who hate Star Wars care about Disney's inane garbage.

LMAO! AMEN to that... I so agree.

With all its failings I have come to appreciate and become a hardcore fan of Legends material!

Revan isn't canon.

We know that a legion was named after a figure called Revan.

This does not canonize anything else about the character.

I don't think Revan was made cannon. I heard rumors of a Revan statue in the temple in RoS, but I was never able to spot it (if anyone can confirm or deny this, it'd be appreciated).

Other than Revan, I don't think any of the characters actually present in the plot of SWTOR have gotten a nod in Canon yet, but two who are referenced through armor and/or codex entry, Darth Andeddu and Exar Kun, have gotten Easter Egg references in the Canon: The Sith Eternal's Fifth Legion is the Andeddu Legion (just like the Third Legion is the Revan Legion), and some RPG supplement / behind-the-scenes material also references Exar Kun.

Obviously these references in the Canon don't mean that anything about the characters' stories, personalities, etc. are necessarily going to carry over to a Canon counterpart, and they may never expand beyond the current obscure references.

And why would a Sith cult that worship the darkside name their legion after a Sith that turned back to the Jedi?
