I. What are the Jedi?

A Jedi is a member of the Jedi Order, who studies, serves and uses the Force; more specifically, the light side of the Force. The Jedi fights for peace and justice in the Galaxy. This is the Jedi Code:

Quote :
There is no emotion; there is peace.
There is no ignorance; there is knowledge.
There is no passion; there is serenity.
There is no chaos; there is harmony.
There is no death; there is the Force.

Jedi behavior is rigidly structured to uphold self-discipline, responsibility, and public service. The Jedi conquer emotions and materialism. They honor life, the law, the order itself and the master-student relationship. Jedi render aid to support and defend the weak; compassion is encouraged. Rules of engagement include understanding the dark and light in all things, learning to see accurately, opening of the eyes to what is not initially evident, and exercising caution, even in trivial matters.

The Jedi are unified by their study of the Force: an "energy field" that emanates from every living thing. The Jedi seeks to understand the Force so that they can use its power to protect and aid the people that they serve. The Jedi believe that the Force can be harnessed through careful study and contemplation to benefit the user and the world around them. As they study the light side of the Force, the Jedi encourage their members only to use the Force for healing and defense—never in anger or fear. Unfortunately, several of the Jedi order throughout history disagreed with this view, arguing that other, darker uses of the Force should be allowed. This disagreement is one of the main issues the Jedi face in their constant battle with the Sith.

Upon joining the Jedi Order, this is what you will be.

II. What do the Jedi stand for?

The Jedi stand for good in the galaxy, compared to the Sith who stand for evil, the Mercenaries who stand for neutrality, and the Dark Jedi who stand for the perverted good. They are self-less and compassionate people's, who fight only to protect.

The three pillars of Jedi Strength is this:

Quote :
* Self-discipline
* Knowledge, as contained in the Jedi Archives
* The Force, a universal energy that binds all things and also has many relations to midi-chlorians
When used correctly, these allowed a Jedi to solve any problem and overcome any obstacle, helping to make the galaxy a better place.

Upon joining the Jedi Order, this is what you will stand for.

III. What do the Jedi DO?

The Jedi can be many things:


Force Warrior – a Jedi who was skilled in a special type of unarmed combat, using meditative martial arts and the Force.

Jedi Ace – a Jedi who had specialized in starfighter combat, combining piloting skills with mastery of the Force.

Jedi Gatemaster – the Jedi who served as the keeper of the main entrance at the Jedi Temple. These Jedi were usually trained in a special way.

Jedi Guardian – a Jedi Master who was especially skilled in battle, the Guardian would concentrate mainly on martial training and combat in general without losing focus on diplomacy and the philosophies of the Force.

Jedi Consular – a Jedi Master who was especially skilled in applications of the Force, the Consular would concentrate primarily on the diplomacy and the powers and philosophies of the Force. Similar to the Force Warrior.

Jedi Sentinel – The balance point between Guardians and Consulars, Sentinels would focus on balancing between applications of the Force and combat skills.

Jedi Weapon Master – a Jedi Master who focused solely on battle, the Weapon Master was among the greatest physical fighters of the Order.

Jedi Watchman
– The equivalent of the Jedi Sentinel, the Jedi Watchman investigated the mysteries of the galaxy and sought out injustice and harm and brought it into the light. A Jedi Watchman was assigned to watch over a particular system in the galaxy, and served it in all means.

These are but the most common avenues to pursue as a Jedi.

Upon Joining the Jedi Order, this is what you could be.

IV. So the Jedi have lightsabers...

You bet they do. As a Jedi, you will have the opportunity of creating your own custom lightsaber by choosing the hilt style, blade color, length of the blade, lens, and crystal components... its all up to you! Of course, this will only happen after you have gone through vigorous padawan training, another exiting part of the Jedi Order experience.

Some examples of Jedi creating lightsabers in canon history:

Quote :
During the Jedi Civil War era, many Cerean Jedi used specially-forged Kasha lightsaber crystals as a meditative tool; by incorporating such crystals into their training regimens, they helped to clear the wielder's mind of distractions, even during tense physical combat. Further, it was a task in itself to find components for the lightsaber. Meditation in a crystal cave on a planet such as Ilum or Dantooine would often produce an image in the Jedi's mind about the lightsaber they were to build. The construction of a lightsaber was considered a milestone on the path to Jedi Knighthood, and took on a heavily symbolic meaning.

During the times of the Old Republic, it was a customary practice for a Jedi Master to present their own personal lightsaber as a gift to their most accomplished student. Jedi apprentice Nomi Sunrider was the recipient of one such lightsaber, receiving the weapon from Master Thon as a testament to the potential for greatness he recognized within her. Though the apprentice was indeed grateful for receiving such an honored gift, their Master would still stress the importance of knowing how to build one, requiring or even demanding that eventually the apprentice learns to construct their own, unique, lightsaber.

Upon joining the Jedi Order, you could make your very own lightsaber!

V. How You Can Join.

Easy. Just go to "Character Central" and read <Building Your Character 101> (clickable link) to make your character. Once an admin has approved your character, report to the <Jedi Enclave>, a sub-forum in the Jedi Praxeum, and POST NEW to introduce yourself to the rest of the Jedi Order! Hopefully within the next few hours/days you will be assigned a Jedi to be your mentor to help you advance through the many ranks and achievements ahead of you!

Good Luck, and may the force be with you!
