     Jedi Council 

Luke Skywalker

The Grand Master of the reformed Jedi Order, Luke began rebuilding the Order in 11 ABY, establishing a Jedi Academy in the Grand Temple on Yavin 4, with an initial class of twelve students. From there, the Order grew into more than a thousand Jedi by 44 ABY, with Luke as the head of the Jedi Council, having led the Jedi through the turmoil of the Yuuzhan Vong War, Swarm War, Second Galactic Civil War, the emergence of the Lost Tribe of the Sith, and the attacks of the Dark Side entity known as Abeloth.

Through the turmoil, Luke has gained and lost much: he married former Emperor's Hand Mara Jade and had a son named Ben, but also lost his nephew Anakin Solo and close friend Chewbacca in the Yuuzhan Vong War, and his other nephew Jacen fell to the Dark Side, becoming Darth Caedus, and was killed by his twin sister Jaina, but not before murdering Mara to secure his place as the new Dark Lord of the Sith.

Jaina Solo Fel

The daughter of Han and Leia Solo, twin sister of Jacen, and older sister of Anakin. And now the wife of Jagged Fel. Jaina is one of the most powerful Jedi in the Order, and named the Sword of the Jedi by the Force through Luke during her Knighting ceremony. She is notable for her serious and sometimes abrasive demeanor, along with her amazing piloting and mechanical skills.

Mara Jade Skywalker

Mara Jade was once the Emperor's deadliest assassin, but was cut adrift in the galaxy when her master died. Fixating on Luke Skywalker as the reason her life was ruined, she became obsessed with killing him - only to save (and be saved by) him on several occasions, ultimately marrying him and becoming a member of the Jedi Council. They had one son, Ben Skywalker, born in the middle of the Yuuzhan Vong War. Dies in Sacrifice at the hands of her nephew Jacen Solo after she discovered he had fallen to the Dark Side and was trying to corrupt Ben, causing her to try an assassinate him.

Kyle Katarn

The main character of the Dark Forces Saga, Kyle started as an Imperial soldier before finding out that the Empire was behind the death of his father, after which he defected and became a mercenary serving the Rebellion and later the New Republic against the Empire, especially when it came to tasks of infiltration and sabotage, as his inside knowledge of the layout of Imperial ships and bases gave him an advantage. Kyle eventually became a Jedi and was charged with the task of defending the legendary Valley of the Jedi on Rusaan and trained several Jedi Knights. Following the formation of the Jedi Council, Kyle became one of the main leaders of the Jedi Order, fighting in the Yuuzhan Vong War, Second Galactic Civil War, and the war against the Lost Tribe of Sith.

See the Dark Forces Saga page for an entry containing game tropes.
  • Ace Pilot
  • Badass
  • Bad Powers, Good People: He can use Dark Side powers like Grip and Force Lightning, but is still on the side of good.
  • Breakout Character: One of the few video game characters to appear in the main expanded universe and easily one of the most prominent of them.
  • Combat Pragmatist: Being a Jedi doesn't stop him from carrying blasters, disruptor rifles and thermal detonators along with his lightsaber. Not to mention that he makes use of both Light and Dark Side powers.
  • Cool Old Guy: By Legacy of the Force.
  • Deadpan Snarker
  • Fan Nickname: God.
  • Genre Savvy: He seems to be well-versed in first-person shooter tropes by Jedi Academy.
    "They always lock the door. You’d think they’d have learned by now. Doesn’t look like there’s a key – that would be too easy. The console to unlock the door is probably hidden in some room twelve floors up or something... how does that make sense?"
  • The Gunslinger: Before becoming a Jedi, he mainly used guns.
  • Heel-Face Turn: Brought about by learning of his fathers death at the hands of the Empire, although he had been having doubts about it even before then.

  • Made of Iron: Kyle survived being impaled by a lightsaber through the chest (and then having an infection get a hold of that wound) during the Legacy of the Force saga.

  • The Mentor: To Jaden Korr and Rosh Penin.
  • Mook Horror Show: A New Republic Intelligence operative named Hantor Loftus once recommended that Kyle not be sent on any more missions, since a raid on an Imperial base he carried out had only left one terrified survivor that was too traumatized by witnessing Kyle in action to provide any information.
  • My God, What Have I Done?: After killing Maw in anger.
  • Nice Job Breaking It, Hero: In Outcast, he returns to the Valley of the Jedi in order to regain his powers to fight Desann. By doing so, he allowed Desann to follow him, reach the Valley and use the Force Nexus to power him up and create the Reborn.
  • One-Man Army
  • Roaring Rampage of Revenge: When Desann and Tavion apparently kill Jan.
  • Superpowered Evil Side: During the events in Mysteries of the Sith, he falls victim to the Dark Force Nexus in the Temple on Dromund Kaas. Mara manages to pull him out of it.

Kyp Durron

The most powerful of Luke's original students, Kyp briefly fell to the dark side during his training due to the influence of Exar Kun's ghost. He ended up destroying a entire system, accidently murdering his brother in the process, before being redeemed by Han. He continued to be aggressive in his duties as a Jedi, often conflicting with Luke on the best way for Jedi to operate, before eventually coming around to Luke's point of view halfway throughout the Yuuzhan Vong War. Now he is a respected member of the Jedi Council, albeit one who often favors more direct and aggressive solutions.

Corran Horn

Former CorSec officer on Corellia, Corran became a member of Rouge Squadron after joining the Rebel Alliance, taking part in many important events during the war. He eventually learned of his Jedi heritage, and became a full time Jedi once peace with the Imperial Remnant was established. Married to Mirax Terrik Horn, with whom he has two children, Valin and Jysella, who became Jedi Knights.
  • Ace Pilot
  • Ancestral Weapon: His first lightsaber, which belonged to his grandfather.
  • Badass
  • Born Detective
  • Cold Sniper: He plays one very well during an undercover mission in Isard's Revenge, and also has a tendency to be depicted this way at least a little bit in the Allston novels.
  • Deadpan Snarker
  • Energy Absorption: He is one of the few Jedi to have a natural talent for this, and can use the energy he absorbs to do things he normally can't, like telekinesis.
  • Fair Cop
  • Green Eyes
  • Happily Married
  • Heroic BSOD: He spends most of Fate of the Jedi in this state after both his children go insane.
  • Just a Machine: Averted, he's one of the few Rogue pilots to treat his astromech droid Whistler as a person (even Wedge casually wiped the memory of his droid at one point) and half the crazy piloting stunts he pulls off in the X-Wing books are because he's got Whistler helping him in ways other pilots would never think to use their droids for.
  • Laser Blade: Uses a dual-phased lightsaber, allowing him too switch his blade length between a normal sized 1.3 meter silver blade and a 3 meter purple blade.
  • Master of Illusion: Another one of his natural skills, Corran is very good at Jedi Mind Tricks, which extends to making his target think they see things that aren't there. Also to help Tionne see how she’d look with different hair.
  • Master Swordsman
  • The Mentor: He has trained at least one Jedi, Raltharan, to Knighthood, and helped train Tahiri Veila.
  • Nonuniform Uniform: Rather than the normal brown robes that other Jedi wear, Corran wears green ones in keeping with the Corellian Jedi tradition.
    • Also true in his Rogue Squadron days. While most of the unit was painted in Rogue Squadron red, his fighter was CorSec green. This is because he never officially signed over his fighter to the New Republic.
  • Papa Wolf
  • Pint-Sized Powerhouse: Corran is only 5'4". Pilots tend to be short to fit better into the cockpit.
  • Selective Squeamishness Suppression: In I, Jedi, Corran is able to look at a man who had been burned to death and calmly point out what's strange about the body, while Luke winces and the other Jedi-in-training are starkly horrified. Corran later is extremely shaken up when he's hit by the "disturbance in the Force" caused by Kyp destroying Carida, even running outside and throwing up. Given that said disturbance in the force was caused by the destruction of a planet, and that said disturbance caused Corran to witness the horrifying deaths of the people there pretty much firsthand, it's actually understandable.
  • Super Cop
  • Zero Approval Gambit: Does this after the Battle of Ithor, taking the blame for the planets destruction in order to spare the Jedi Order any more damage in public opinion.

Kenth Hamner

A former member of the New Republic military, Kenth served as the liason between the military and Jedi Order during the Yuuzhan Vong Invasion, and became a key member of the Jedi Council after it was reformed. Kenth was appointed acting Grand Master after Luke's exile, but faced serious opposition to his policies from the rest of the Jedi Council. He was eventually removed from his post after opposing the launch of a wing of Stealth-X's to support Luke against the Lost Tribe of Sith, fearing that current Galactic Alliance Chief of State Natasi Daala would view it as a prelude to an attack on her. He was killed in a duel with Saba Sebatyne attempting to stop the launch.

Saba Sebatyne

A Barabel Jedi Master who was trained outside of the Order by Master Eelysa. She served with distinction during the Yuuzhan Vong War, and trained Leia following the Swarm War.

Chief of State Daala is surprised when she sees the footage, but realizes that Cilghal is a Jedi Master for a reason.
  • Beware the Nice Ones
  • Deadpan Snarker: She has her moments, espically when dealing with a rude security officer:
    Harfard: "Now get out of my way, fish-head."
    Cilghal: "Two things. First, my name is not Fish-Head. It is Master Cilghal. Second, I am not in your way. That is a logistical impossibility. I am less than a meter wide. The entryway where we stand and the doorway behind me are several meters wide. I now leave it as an exercise of your alleged intelligence to find a way into the Temple. If you do a very good job, perhaps we will name the test after you."
  • Fish People
  • Healing Hands
  • Laser Blade: Uses a silver bladed lightsaber.
  • The Medic
  • The Mentor: To Tekli.
  • Omnidisciplinary Scientist: In addition to her medical knowledge, Cilghal is an expert in several biological and technological fields. This made her very useful during the Yuuzhan Vong War, as she studied every captured Yuuzhan Vong biot to find a weakness to exploit.

"He was born to be a legend."
"Before I got this scratch, it was easy to believe in my own invincibility. I was arrogant enough to think of myself as perfect. That's a trap Kyp, Wurth, Octa, and others in his cabal are falling into. They think that because they've not been hurt, they can't be hurt. That's not an illusion I harbor anymore."

An arrogant young Jedi Knight who was part of Kyp Durron's aggressive faction very early in the Yuuzhan Vong war. His own failures and battles against the Vong humbled him, and he turned away from Durron and began supporting Luke's faction.

His You Shall Not Pass Dying Moment of Awesome is the direct result, earning his title of hero among the everyone in the galaxy, including the Yuuzhan Vong.
