The Jedi Order
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/6b53626c9cc85db243f4871275d3d953.png

"A Jedi uses the Force for knowledge and defense, never for attack."
Grand Master Yoda

The Jedi Order was a noble, religious order of protectors united in their devotion to the Light Side of the Force. With a history dating back thousands of years before the rise of the Galactic Empire, the Jedi—noted for their lightsabers and natural ability to harness the powers of the Force—stood as the guardians of peace and justice in the Galactic Republic. Due to the machinations of their dark antithesis known as the Sith, the Jedi Order was ultimately wiped out by the iron fist of the Empire following the execution of Order 66, which resulted in a handful of survivors going into hiding across the galaxy.


    In General 

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.
The Jedi Code

  • Action Girl: Name a female Jedi and she will be this trope by virtue of being a Jedi.
  • All There in the Script: A lot of Jedi had their names revealed via the theatrical films' credits, scripts, and character guides.
  • Ascended Extras: The Clone Wars gives a significant amount of Jedi that are featured in the Prequel Trilogy as peripheral characters fleshed out expanded roles.
  • Ascend to a Higher Plane of Existence: When they die, Jedi can learn to become one with the Force and manifest as Force spirits if they have the proper knowledge and training. Most Jedi have never learned how to do this as they believed consciousness ceases to exist after. Qui-Gon Jinn is the first known Jedi to achieve this via being trained by the Force Priestesses and a Shaman of the Whills. He would later teach Yoda the same, who would train Obi-Wan Kenobi to do this. According to the Force Priestesses, there are very few beings (even fewer Jedi) in history who have accomplished this ability.
  • Badass Army: Their mastery of the Force makes them the most powerful individuals in the galaxy.
  • Canon Immigrant: A few Jedi, most notably Aayla Secura, debuted in the Legends comic series Republic before appearing in the theatrical films and The Clone Wars, which allowed them to be part of the Canon after the 2014 Continuity Reboot.
  • Children Are Innocent: The group of younglings that Darth Vader finds in the Jedi Council chamber during his attack on the Jedi Temple are unaware that he has come there to kill them instead of rescuing them.
  • Combat Clairvoyance: Jedi have the ability to sense things before they happen, giving them heightened reflexes.
  • Cool Starship: Jedi tend to pilot their own awesome starfighters.
  • Cool Sword: The lightsaber, a Jedi's signature weapon, which can cut through almost anything and defend against almost any attack. The most common colors for a Jedi’s lightsaber are blue and green, though other colors are used (such as purple for Mace Windu).
  • Death by Cameo: In Revenge of the Sith, George Lucas' son Jett plays a Jedi Padawan who gets killed fighting Clone Troopers in front of Bail Organa while stunt coordinator Nick Gillard plays one of the Jedi Vader kills in the security hologram.
  • Despair Event Horizon: It's revealed in Rebels that a number of Jedi gave into their fear and despair during the Clone Wars and lost themselves to the Dark Side.
  • Earned Stripes: Humans (and aliens with human-like hair) wear rat-tails as Padawan learners. Aliens who don't have human-like hair wear an equivalent, such as Ahsoka's chain on her head-jewellery as seen in The Clone Wars. When they are promoted to Jedi Knight, the rat-tail is cut off and they're free to wear their hair however they want to (although we don't see the process in the theatrical films themselves). In The Phantom Menace, Obi-Wan has the Padawan haircut, which Anakin wears in the last scene. In that same scene, Obi-Wan is no longer wearing it. By Attack of the Clones, Anakin still has it. By The Clone Wars, Anakin and Obi-Wan have both grown their hair out.
  • Easily Forgiven: It's more or less their main philosophy. No matter how heinous your crimes are, if you decide to switch back to the Light Side, you are allowed to.
  • Four-Star Badass: The Jedi really get to demonstrate how badass they are when they're made generals of the Republic Army during the Clone Wars.
  • Frontline General: The Jedi served the role as this in all of the canonical Clone Wars-focused installments, such as Attack of the Clones, The Clone Wars, and Revenge of the Sith. The Jedi are all automatically generals and prefer to command from the frontlines. The reason is probably because they don't fear enemy blaster fire. Jedi Master Pong Krell is an exception due to the fact that he prefers to stay in the back. But, he has a good reason to do that — he's killing as many Clone Troopers as possible using Hollywood Tactics before he officially betrays the Republic.
  • Good Cannot Comprehend Evil: The Jedi Order suffers from this problem and pays dearly for it.
  • Hero with Bad Publicity: Their involvement in the Clone Wars makes their claim to be peacekeepers seem hypocritical, which alienates them from the public. Palpatine uses this to his advantage when he provokes them into an assassination attempt.
  • He Who Fights Monsters: As the Clone Wars goes on, the Jedi take on a greater role in the Republic's military and become distanced from their role as peacemakers. Yoda in particular is very uncomfortable with the Jedi's role in the war, especially after their failures lead to Anakin Skywalker turning to the Dark Side.
  • Infant Immortality: This is firmly not in effect in The Clone Wars and Revenge of the Sith.
  • Jedi Mind Trick: The Trope Namer. With a wave of their hand, a Jedi can use the Force in order to influence a weak-minded individual's thoughts and actions.
  • Kicking Ass in All Her Finery: Some female Jedi (such as Luminara Unduli, Barriss Offee, and Shaak Ti,) wear seemingly-impractical robes while fighting. It doesn't slow them at all.
  • Killed Offscreen: The theatrical films showcase only a handful of the Jedi's deaths, but considering Luke is deemed the last of the Jedi in Return of the Jedi, it's a safe bet to say that a whole lot of Jedi didn't make it, or as Rebels revealed, turned to the Dark Side due to succumbing into despair.
  • Knight Errant: They often act as this due to being the guardians of peace and justice in the galaxy.
  • Knight Templar: At their worst, even without directly turning to the Dark Side, the Jedi can be incredibly self-righteous assholes. Their continued arrogance did play no small part in their eventual downfall.
  • Laser Blade: The lightsaber is a weapon used by the Jedi, but there's more to it than you may think. The lightsaber’s blade comes from the ignition of a kyber crystal, which are crystals that resonate with the Force and are attuned to certain users (though often, it is pretty rare for another person to be attuned to it/even find that another individual's kyber crystal is also attuned to them, usually because the Force has plans that cause things like the destruction of the crystal or something else). The crystal is initially colorless, but when a person it is attuned to finds it, it changes color. There is no indication that these colors mean anything except for black (unique to Mandalorian Jedi Tarre Vizsla), and possibly white (Ahsoka's second set of lightsabers, after she purified them from the late Sixth Brother's lightsaber), purple (Mace, an Anti-Hero/Good Is Not Nice), and yellow (the Jedi Temple Guards, who do not use their own lightsabers and instead pass these down from generation to generation). You will never find a Jedi with red lightsabers attuned to them because a kyber crystal will only turn red if someone it isn't attuned to ends up corrupting it (or "bleeding it") when they force it to attune to them.
  • Last Stand: Obi-Wan and Yoda went for a last stand of the Jedi as a whole when they battled Darth Vader and Darth Sidious after Order 66 wiped out the Jedi. Though Vader is injured, Sidious survives unscathed and rescues his apprentice while the Jedi are forced into exile with the Sith having won dominance of the galaxy.
  • Love Makes You Evil: This is part of their teachings... sort of. It's really more like "attachment leads to destructive obsession", or the "desire is the cause of all suffering" (which is associated with Buddhism).
  • Magic Knight: Jedi use the Force to give them a number of magical powers as well as swordfight effectively with their lightsabers.
  • Martial Pacifist: Although the Jedi don't hesitate to use violence when necessary, they don't believe in the use of preemptive violence and try hard not to kill unless there is no choice.
    Yoda: A Jedi uses the Force for knowledge and defense, never for attack.
  • Master Swordsman: Some of them, including Yoda, Mace Windu, Anakin Skywalker, Obi-Wan Kenobi, and Qui-Gon Jinn, are stated to be the greatest lightsaber duelists in the galaxy. Considering constructing a lightsaber marks the first step from Youngling to an active Jedi, it's no wonder why the Jedi take mastering the art of lightsaber combat so seriously.
  • Master-Apprentice Chain: Jedi training uses this in consecutive lines of Masters training their Padawans to Knighthood, who then take their own apprentices. The most significant ones for the Canon are:
    • Yoda > Dooku > Qui-Gon Jinn > Obi-Wan Kenobi > Anakin Skywalker > Ahsoka Tano
    • The Five Priestesses > Qui-Gon Jinn (as a Force spirit) > Yoda > Obi-Wan Kenobi > Luke Skywalker
  • Military Mage: The Jedi often act as de facto officers commanding squads of Clone Troopers and are sometimes also deployed as special forces or elite bodyguards or escorts for VIPs. Jedi Knights who fight with the Republic Army are awarded the rank of General and Padawan learners are automatically awarded the rank of Commander.
  • Mind over Matter: The Jedi can use the Force to lift, push, and crush any organism or object.
  • Morton's Fork:
    • The Jedi Order's involvement in the Clone Wars: they either participate to protect the Republic and its citizens as per their duty, risking losing their way and morals, or hold on to their morals and stay out of the war, while Dooku enslaves the galaxy — which would also go against their morals. This came to its head during the Clone Wars when they were forced to choose between defending Ahsoka as one of their own or give her up to the Republic courts to maintain their standing with the Senate. They opted for the latter, though not without some internal dissent.
    • During the later years of the Clone Wars, the Jedi face a morally grey decision: they could try to assassinate Dooku as a last resort to end the violence of the Clone Wars, compromising their ideals in the process, or continue being responsible for the deaths and suffering of millions by continuing to conduct the war as they had been doing since the beginning.
  • National Weapon: Jedi train with lightsabers from a young age and the creation of the first lightsaber is an important rite of passage for Jedi younglings. They also serve as an identifying feature; Anakin, who's lived his life up to that point outside the Republic, recognizes Qui-Gon as a Jedi from spotting his lightsaber.
  • Ninja Pirate Zombie Robot: Samurai Taoist Buddhist Space Police keepers of the peace IN SPACE!
  • Not-So-Omniscient Council of Bickering: The Jedi Council is an ensemble of the most powerful, most knowledgeable and wisest beings in the Galaxy... yet they continue making very questionable decisions, such as:
    • Dismissing Qui-Gon's warning about the return of the Sith and not giving him reinforcements to protect Queen Amidala when she decided to return to Naboo and solve the Trade Federation occupation herself. This led to Qui-Gon's death at the hand of Darth Maul and the very emotional Anakin being trained by the freshly knighted and unprepared Obi-Wan.
    • Lying to the emotionally unstable Anakin about Obi-Wan's faked death since they needed his reaction to be genuine.
    • Abandoning one of their own based upon circumstantial evidence that she committed treason because the Galactic Senate put some pressure on them in the matter. What's worse was not even really apologizing after she was proven innocent, considering the whole ordeal just another trial.
    • Doubting Yoda's sanity and putting him under constant surveillance when he claimed that he had contacted the dead simply because they were that convinced it's impossible to maintain one's identity beyond death.
    • Not realizing that the Dark Lord of the Sith has been sitting right under their noses for decades until he personally reveals it to one of them.
  • Not Wearing Tights: The Jedi Order is filled with sword fighting people with superpowers from a variety of worlds that can control the fabric of reality to see the future, move objects with their minds, and perform incredible feats of acrobatics, but Jedi are treated more like knights, monks, and generals than superheroes.
  • One-Man Army: A single Jedi is all it takes to wipe out legions of Separatist droids.
  • The Paladin: As a whole, they are an order of Lawful Good religious knights that stand For Great Justice. The Force itself can be considered the God of Good of Star Wars.
  • Pride: The Jedi is generally complacent after a millennium of getting mired in the Republic's affairs and not encountering the Sith. While speaking with Obi-Wan and Windu, Yoda acknowledges in the form of a Stealth Insult that Anakin isn't the only overconfident Jedi around.
    Obi-Wan: Anakin's abilities have made him... well, arrogant.
    Yoda: Yes, yes. A flaw more and more common among Jedi. Too sure of themselves they are. Even the older, more experienced ones.
  • Properly Paranoid: They are reluctant to train Anakin as a Jedi on account of him being too old to begin his training and thus vulnerable to the Dark Side.
  • Psychoactive Powers: A Jedi's lightsaber -– indeed, any lightsaber –- reacts to the wielder's emotional state. Having a focused or balanced mind creates a connection to the weapon which makes it lighter and easier to wield.
  • The Purge: Order 66, after its completion the Jedi went from roughly 10,000 to threenote . While it's possible more survived, three is the only confirmed number in the Canon as of yet.
  • Rubber-Forehead Aliens: The Jedi Order has a significant amount of humanoid aliens.
  • Schrödinger's Canon: In Legends, the Order only instituted its famous policy of "no attachments" after a disastrous war started by a Jedi who turned to the Dark Side and became an extremely powerful and dangerous Sith Lord. Before this, it was perfectly acceptable for Jedi to have families and be in contact with their blood relatives.
  • Seers: The Force often grants its users premonitions or even visions of the past, future, or far away places. However, the Jedi's ability to do so is severly diminished during the time of the Clone Wars due to the Dark Side clouding their senses.
  • Self-Fulfilling Prophecy: Their wariness to trust Anakin due to his closeness to the Dark Side is a major part of why he turns in the first place.
  • The Spock: The Jedi ideal is to escape from emotion and passion to commune with the Force.
  • Suspiciously Similar Substitute: Between The Clone Wars and Revenge of the Sith, the Tholothian Adi Gallia and Zabrak Eeth Koth are switched out on the Jedi Council by two other Jedi of the same species, Stass Allie and Agen Kolar respectively. You'd have to pay extra close attention to notice and the characters are so minor in the Prequel Trilogy that it doesn't even change much of anything in the theatrical films. Justified since Gallia was killed by Savage Opress and Koth was kicked out of the Jedi Order.
  • Technical Pacifist: They regard themselves as "keepers of the peace" who try to defend life and only kill when necessary. Even when the Order is almost defunct, they try to solve problems peacefully rather than rush into battle.
  • Trade Your Passion for Glory: Yoda tells Luke that part of the reason the Jedi fell was that the Order had lost touch with their spiritual and peaceful ways, allowing themselves to become mired in political and material matters while acting as peacekeepers for the Republic.
  • Villains Act, Heroes React: This is cited as one of the flaws of the Jedi and reasons Palpatine was able to wipe most of them out. With the Sith long believed gone, the Jedi had gotten out of the habit of actively seeking out evil and mostly just reacted to threats as they presented themselves. This tendency made it easier for the Sith to stay in hiding for hundreds of years and plot against the Jedi - since they were inactive (in terms of personally antagonizing the Jedi), the Jedi simply failed to notice them.
  • Vow of Celibacy: The Jedi frown on having strong attachments and Anakin Skywalker is not able to continue his relationship with Padmé Amidala openly. Although, Word of God is that the Jedi are allowed to have casual sex.
  • Warrior Monk: They combine Western chivalry and swordsmanship with Eastern mysticism and acrobatics.
  • What the Hell, Hero?: The Clone Wars often went out of its way to have various characters call the Order, particularly the Council, out for their dubious actions:
    • During the Deception arc, they fake Obi-Wan's death so he could thwart Count Dooku's plan to kidnap Palpatine from within. When Anakin finds out that they deliberately lied to him so his reaction would sell Obi-Wan's death, he calls them out on it.
    • There are three instances of this trope in "The Wrong Jedi":
      • Asajj Ventress delivers an indirect one through Anakin via comparing how the Council abandoned and effectively betrayed Ahsoka to how Dooku did the same to her. Anakin is outright horrified when he realizes she's right.
      • Barriss Offee justifies her attack on the Order as a stand against the growing corruption of its principles, claiming that they've become the very menace they are supposed to be fighting. She's right, too, even if none of them realize why.
      • While Ahsoka doesn't call them out on it directly after she's been cleared of the charges, her expression speaks volumes of her opinion when the same people who praise her strength and resilience previously gave her up to the Senate Court as a traitor not long before.
    • Obi-Wan delivers another to the Council at the end of Dark Disciple for ordering Quinlan Vos, a fellow Jedi Master, to assassinate Dooku, claiming that everything that went wrong with the mission was because, no matter the intentions, such a course of action is clearly of the Dark Side.
  • We Have Become Complacent: By the start of the Prequel Trilogy, it's been over a thousand years since the Sith were a visible threat and the Council believes them to have been wiped out forever. This leads directly to their downfall, as even after they are forced to admit at the end of The Phantom Menace that the Darksider who killed Master Qui-Gon Jinn was a Sith, they fail to realize that the current Dark Lord is right in front of them as the Chancellor of the Republic until it's too late. Tarkin revealed that this was an inevitability: the Jedi Temple on Coruscant was built over an ancient Sith shrine, which corrupted their collective vision until by the Clone Wars they fail to notice the Sith conspiracy right under their noses.
    • The surest sign of this complacency is in Attack Of The Clones when Jocasta Nu (a Jedi Master who served as the Chief Librarian of the Jedi Archives) assumes the planet Kamino must not exist since she cannot find any records of it, believing their database to be infallible. It takes a youngling to point out the obvious answer that the Archives must have been tampered with, which is exactly what Dooku did. The Order's blind faith and arrogance left them easy prey for Palpatine's manipulations.
    • Yoda admitted all this to Luke, acknowledging that the Order had allowed itself to become mired in political matters during its time as guardians of the Republic and losing touch with their true purpose of communing with the Force, as well as allowing the public's opinion to sway their judgement. They refused to announce their suspicions of the Sith's return or take a more aggressive stance in their search for fear of causing a panic. Looking back, Yoda says if he knew then what he did now, he'd have done things much more differently and made huge changes to the Order.
  • The Window or the Stairs: This is part of Jedi philosophy. The Dark Side is the quick and easy path to power, but it will exact a terrible price from you and everyone you care about in the long run. Unless you're okay with that.

Jedi Temple Guard

    In General 

Jedi Temple Guard

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/jedi_temple_guard_sw.png

Voiced by: Stephen Stanton
Appearances: The Clone Wars | Kanan | Rebels

The Jedi Temple Guard was a security force maintained by the Jedi Order and tasked with the protection of the Jedi Temple on Coruscant, the capital planet of the Galactic Republic. An ancient and honored tradition in Jedi history, the Temple Guards were Jedi Knights plucked from the ranks to become anonymous sentinels as part of their lifelong commitment to the Order. They carried special lightsaber pikes which produced yellow blades. They were led by Jedi Master Cin Drallig, the head of security.


  • Badass Longrobe: They wear golden-brown robes with Jedi patterns on them to signify their loyalty to the order.
  • Cool Mask: Their faces are hidden behind identity-concealing masks, the ultimate expression of emotional detachment required in service to a higher calling.
  • Double Weapon: They carry imposing lightsaber pikes -— thick, double-bladed weapons that produced a rare and distinctive yellow blade.
  • Fallen Hero: At least one of them, the Sentinel, fell to the Dark Side. He was one of the masked guards throughout The Clone Wars.
  • Gate Guardian: Their duty is to guard the Jedi Temple.
  • In the Hood: They usually keep their robes' hoods up to conceal their individual identities.
  • Laser Blade: Their lightsaber pikes produce yellow blades, which were considered rare among Jedi of the time. The blades are shorter than normal double-bladed lightsabers. Word of God is that these lightsabers are passed down from generation to generation and aren't actually forged on each individual members' own accord.
  • Light Is Good: They wear golden-brown robes, wield yellow-bladed lightsaber pikes, and are loyal to the Jedi Order.
  • Secret Test of Character: Visions of them gave one to Kanan when he sought guidance to fight the Inquisitors. At the end of it, one of them unmasked himself. It was the vision of the former self of the Grand Inquisitor, back before he fell to the Dark Side.
  • The Stoic: There seems to be a heavy emphasis on no attachments for them, much more than the rest of the Jedi Order. They are masked so that people don't identify with them, and their lightsabers aren't even their own, instead having been passed down from the previous generation of Temple Guards.
  • Uncertain Doom: Their greatest challenge in recent times was probably the attack on the temple during the Jedi Purge. For all their skill, they presumably ultimately didn't do so well. And knowing that the Sentinel didn't take it so well either...
  • Undying Loyalty: To the Jedi Order.

Appearances: Darth Maul | Attack of the Clones

"Careful, my young Padawan. The shadows hold great rage... constrained, but so deep it might swallow you whole."

Khaat Qiyn was a human female Jedi that served the Jedi Order before the Clone Wars. She and her Padawan were among the Jedi sent to the Battle of Geonosis at the beginning of the Clone Wars.


  • Being Watched: She and her Padawan sense a dark presence watching them, this presence being Maul. Maul flees before the duo can investigate, causing Jace to believe they were just being paranoid.
  • The Cameo: She and her Padawan show up in the first issue of Darth Maul to serve as examples of how the Jedi have been lulled into a false sense of security and are misled into believing signs of things not being what they seem as nothing.
  • The Mentor: To Bairdon Jace.
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: We never see her again after the Battle of Geonosis. Back in Legends, it was stated that she was likely one of the casualties.

  • He Cleans Up Nicely: Cleans up and wears clean formal clothes for the first time in his life at Fanry's coronation, which several character not recognizing him at first and even commenting that he was handsome.
  • Heroic B So D: Briefly lapses into this when Fanry reveals herself as the mastermind behind the blackguard attacks.
  • Meaningful Name: Averroes is a philosopher.
  • Mr. Vice Guy: Slovenly, fully enjoys the fine food and drink of the palace, always smoking a death stick, and views the Order's teachings on celibacy as an abstract ideal at best.
  • My Greatest Failure: The death of his Padawan, Nim Pianna, at his hands after she was infected by nanotechnology via a slicer dart that caused her to unwillingly attack him.
  • Replacement Goldfish: Cleary views raising and teaching Fanry as a chance to make up for what happened to Nim, which Fanry resents him heavily for.

    Rissa Mano 

Rissa Mano

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/rissa_mano_sw.png

Species: Devaronian

A recently promoted Jedi Knight. Her engineering and piloting skills caused her to gain recognition from Mace Windu and the Jedi Council, allowing Master Windu to recruit her on a reconnaissance mission to Hissrich during the early stages of the Clone Wars.


  • Ace Pilot: She is said to be a better pilot than Plo Koon.
  • I Call Her "Vera": She named her lightsaber, "Marcie". Mace seems a little weirded out by this.
  • The Knights Who Say "Squee!": She is thrilled to be on a mission with Mace Windu, who she considers to be one of the greatest Jedi of all time.

    Nahdar Vebb 

Nahdar Vebb

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/nahdar_vebb_sw_9581.jpg

Species: Mon Calamari

Voiced by: Tom Kenny
Appearances: The Clone Wars

"But in this war, strength prevails. The rules have changed."

Nahdar Vebb was a Mon Calamari Jedi Knight who lived during the final days of the Jedi Order and the Galactic Republic. He was trained as a Jedi by Kit Fisto, with whom he reunited on the third moon of Vassek. Along with several Clone Troopers under Clone Commander Fil, the Jedi discovered the lair of General Grievous. During an attempt to capture the cyborg general, Vebb engaged Grievous in a lightsaber duel and was killed by Grievous shooting him.


  • A Father to His Men: He cares greatly for the Clone Troopers under his command and is very upset when they're killed.
  • The Apprentice: Before the Clone Wars, he was Kit Fisto's Padawan, but his master became too busy with the war to finish his training and be there to watch Nahdar become a Jedi Knight.
  • Blue Is Heroic: The color of his lightsaber’s blade is blue.
  • Character Death: He is killed by General Grievous, who uses one of his extra arms to pull out a blaster and shoot Nahdar while their lightsabers were locked together.
  • Don't Make Me Destroy You: He says this word-for-word to Grievous. It doesn't turn out the way he thought it would.
  • Fish People: He's a Mon Calamari.
  • Hot-Blooded: This proves to be his Fatal Flaw when he impulsively goes up against Grievous.
  • Laser Blade: He wields a blue-bladed lightsaber.
  • Mauve Shirt: He gets just enough time to establish himself as sympathetic before Grievous kills him.
  • Mind over Matter: He tends to use the Force a lot while fighting and also uses it to clear out the fog surrounding Grievous' lair to reveal the entrance. Kit calls him out on the fact that he continued to use the Force to abuse the remains of several Battle Droids they just killed.
    Kit: I didn't forget to teach you restraint, did I, my old Padawan?
    Nahdar: I'm sorry, Master. I got carried away.
  • Never Bring a Knife to a Gun Fight: When he was dueling Grievous, the general Blade Locks his lightsaber before shooting him with a blaster held in one of his other hands.
  • Revenge: He wants this for all those killed by Grievous. Unfortunately, it blinds him to the fact he is not skilled enough to face Grievous by himself and ends up getting him killed.

    Akar-Deshu 

Akar-Deshu

Species: Mahran

Homeworld: Mahranee

Appearances: Dark Disciple

Akar-Deshu was a Mahran Jedi Knight and friend of Jedi Master Quinlan Vos.


  • Blue Is Heroic: His lightsaber is blue.
  • Character Death: Vos kills him as Desh lies dying from using his stinger. Desh's last thoughts are wondering if Vos' was killing him as a mercy to spare him from a painful death or a cruelty by having his last sight be his best friend killing him.
  • Deadpan Snarker: One of the reasons he gets along so well with Vos is because they have the same snarky and playful sense of humor.
  • Doomed Homeworld: Mahranee is attacked by the Separatists late in the Clone Wars, with Count Dooku ordering the refugee fleet that escaped the planet to be destroyed and all the remaining Mahran on the world to be shot on sight. Desh is devastated by the fate of his homeworld and death of much of his species, but knows there is very little he can do about the situation.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: After Vos falls to the Dark Side and attempts to escape custody along with Dooku, Desh, having been disarmed of his lightsaber, attempts to kill him using his stinger, which will kill both him and whoever he injects. Unfortunately, Vos uses the Force to make him hit fellow Jedi Knight Kav Bayons instead.
  • In-Series Nickname: He is called Desh by Vos and several other characters.
  • Pint-Sized Powerhouse: Mahran are small and thin, but, with the Force and Jedi training, Desh is perfectly capable of beating a Gamorrean in hand-to-hand combat.

    Rig Nema 

Dr. Rig Nema

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/rig_nema_sw_5723.png

Voiced by: Catherine Taber
Appearances: The Clone Wars

Rig Nema was a female Consular Jedi doctor who served the Jedi Order during the Clone Wars, the full-scale conflict between the Galactic Republic and the Confederacy of Independent Systems. At some time during the war, one of Doctor Nema's patients was Grand Master Yoda, who had started to hear the disembodied voice of the late Master Qui-Gon Jinn via the Force, much to the Jedi Council's concern.


  • All There in the Script: While never seen in the installment, her concept art reveals that she wields a green-bladed lightsaber.
  • The Medic: She is a trained doctor and skilled in the Force and the Council thinks highly enough of her skills to turn to her to find out if anything is wrong with Yoda.
  • Ms. Fanservice: Mild example. If anything, her outfit of choice is pretty revealing for a doctor.
  • Mythology Gag: Her appearance/species is based off of concept art of Mace Windu for The Phantom Menace.
  • Nice Hat: She wears an elaborate headdress that frames her head. It is unknown if it is covering up hair or some bizarre alien physiology.
  • Yellow-Skinned Space Babe: She looks like a human, except for her yellow skin and golden eyes. However, she is still attractive.
  • Uncertain Doom: Being based at the Jedi Temple on Coruscant, things don't look too bright for her when Order 66 gets executed. Though if Madame Jocasta—a Retired Badass librarian— can survive, then that opens up the possibility of survival for other Temple-based Jedi.

    Finn Ertay

Species: Twi'lek

Appearances: The Clone Wars

Finn Ertay was a Twi'lek female who served as a Jedi during the Clone Wars. She was killed during a duel with Darth Maul.


  • Alien Hair: As with the other Twi'leks, she has lekku instead of hair.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: Alongside a Nikto Jedi, she was utterly crushed in her duel with Darth Maul and Savage.
  • In the Back: Darth Maul stabs her through the back with his lightsaber when she disengages from him and tries to stop Savage from killing the Nikto Jedi she was fighting alongside with.
  • Laser Blade: She wields a blue-bladed lightsaber.
  • Recurring Extra: She appeared in the background of two episodes before being briefly featured as one of the Jedi killed by Darth Maul and Savage.
  • Red Shirt: Her only major role is to help add to Darth Maul and Savage's Jedi kill count.

Species: Weequay

Portrayed by: ???

Sora Bulq was a Weequay Jedi who served the Galactic Republic and the Jedi Order during the Clone Wars against the Separatists.


  • Adaptational Heroism: In the Legends continuity, he fell to the Dark Side very early in the war and became Count Dooku's leading disciple. In the Canon, he remained a loyal Jedi who survived at least into the third year of the war.
  • Recurring Extra: He appears as a background character several times in The Clone Wars, with his identity confirmed in concept art posted in the episode guides.
  • Uncertain Doom: Since he never had his Face–Heel Turn in the Canon that he had in Legends, he may have died in Order 66 or the ensuing Jedi Purge.

Eldra Kaitis

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/eldra_kaitis_sw.png

Species: Twi'lek

Appearances: Darth Maul

"You think you scare me? You're the one lurking in the shadows... keeping who you really are secret. You're the one whose scared."

Eldra Kaitis was a young Twi'lek female Padawan. Prior to the Invasion of Naboo, Eldra was captured by the Xrexus Cartel's boss, Xev Xrexus. The apprentice of Darth Sidious, Darth Maul, learned of Eldra's capture and searched for the Padawan before she could be auctioned off, wanting to test his abilities against her.


  • Action Girl: Maul notes she'll be a Worthy Opponent. Keep in mind this is not too long before Maul fought and killed Qui-Gon, a Jedi Master, and Eldra is still a Padawan.
  • Alien Hair: As with the other Twi'leks, she has lekku instead of hair.
  • Badass in Distress: Maul notes that she's old enough and skilled enough to be promoted to Jedi Knight, and she handles herself quite fine when she gets captured.
  • Damsel in Distress: She's been captured by a crime syndicate that wants to auction her off to the highest bidder, and unbeknownst to (barely) anyone, Maul is on the hunt for her. Considering Eldra learns about Maul and the Jedi can't learn about him until later, this might not be a sign of good things to come for the young Padawan.
  • Defiant Captive: Snarks and defies all her capturers constantly, including Maul, even after learning what he really is.
  • Foregone Conclusion: Because the Jedi Order can't know that the Sith are still alive in the form of Sidious and Maul until The Phantom Menace, something must've happened to her to prevent them from knowing sooner. Given that Maul wants to fight her to the death... she dies, of course.
  • Get It Over With: Tells Maul point-blank that if he's gonna kill her while she's helpless then get it done, and if he's not, give her a lightsaber so she can fight for her life. Maul notes that she has no fear before they duel and that she's resigned herself to either her death or Maul's.
  • Harmful to Minors: Considering she's a young Twi'lek girl, things really don't sound good for her, She at least escapes the custody of the cartel, but that ends up leading her into a meeting with Maul. Though unlike many other Jedi Padawans that have been abducted, she can take care of herself quite fine.
  • Hidden Depths: Maul senses that she has anger in her heart, something that would've made her susceptible to the dark side. He laments to himself that had circumstances been different, she could've been an ally, but he's already committed to killing her once things are said and done, so he can't go back on this choice.
  • I Gave My Word: She offers to help Maul fight off the syndicates if he removes her cuffs and gives back her lightsaber. He complies, and instead of running off or stabbing him in the back, she stays and fights the criminals off.
  • Laser Blade: She wields a blue bladed one, which goes well with her blue skin and eyes.
  • Trash Talk: Trades a few barbs with Maul right before they start.

Species: Human

Portrayed by: Jason Baird

Bairdon Jace was the male human Padawan of Khaat Qiyn before the Invasion of Naboo and the Clone Wars. He and his master were part of the assault team that fought at the Battle of Geonosis.


  • Being Watched: He and his master sense a dark presence watching them, this presence being Maul. Maul flees before the duo can investigate, causing Jace to believe they were just being paranoid.
  • The Cameo: He and Qiyn show up in the first issue of Darth Maul to serve as examples of how the Jedi have been lulled into a false sense of security and are misled into believing signs of things not being what they seem as nothing.
  • Prematurely Grey-Haired: In his picture, he's only in his early twenties at the latest, but just look at his hair.
  • Schrödinger's Canon: Though never explicitly confirmed, his name is presumably Bairdon Jace, like it was in Legends. Word of God has stated that there's little reason to change the names of characters like Bairdon Jace, so it might as well be the same.
  • Tuckerization: His name is derived from his actor's name, Jason Baird.

Species: Iktotchi

Ferren Barr was a Iktotchi Padawan who, along with a handful of rebels he recruited, managed to hide out on Mon Cala following Order 66.


  • Anti-Hero: In his desperation to fight the Empire, he took on much of its ruthlessness, becoming cold to the individual lives of others in the same way Palpatine is. Due to the nature of his deceit, he may even skew closer to Fallen Hero or Knight Templar.
  • Expy: He looks almost identical to Master Saesee Tiin.
  • He Who Fights Monsters: He manipulates others (up to and including the entire planet of Mon Calamari) into fighting the empire though half-truths and deceit, fully expecting to sacrifice their lives such that - in the future - those unwitting sacrifices will result in the Empire's eventual defeat. That the audience knows that there will eventually be positive outcomes to his actions doesn't stop those who know of them in-universe from being suitably horrified.
  • Horned Humanoid: A trait of the Iktotchi species. Notably Barr's right horn was broken at some point.
  • I Know Your True Name: Managed to uncover Darth Vader's true identity as Anakin Skywalker. He also knows the Inquisitors' true identities.
  • Unwitting Pawn: Lee Char was his: he did not lie about the threat of the Empire, or the fact that Mon Calamari would be essential in defeating it, but he led the King to believe that the planet had a chance in fighting back - and then manipulated the situation to ensure an Imperial attack - when all he wanted was to ensure Admiral Raddus and the Mon Cala cruisers escaped the chaos and thus eventually become the backbone of the Rebellion. That this results in millions of Mon Calamari deaths and Lee Char's capture/torture for decades does not bother him, but it devastates Char.
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: It's implied that he Force tricked some of his compatriots into helping him in his fight against the Empire, but if the sudden and brief flashback pages are any indication, he might feel bad about it though does see it as a necessary sacrifice.

  • Ascended Extra: In Attack of the Clones, he was the youngling who answered Yoda's question on what happened to the information on Kamino. In Revenge of the Sith, he is the young Jedi who fought off a few troopers only to get shot down in front of Bail Organa, in a very shocking moment.
  • Blue Is Heroic: His lightsaber blade is blue.
  • Character Death: He is killed by Clone Troopers of the 501st when Order 66 was issued.

Sammo Quid

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/sammo_quid_sw.png

Species: Twi'lek

Appearances: Kanan

A male Initiate that was classmates with Caleb Dume and Tai Uzuma.


  • Alien Hair: As with the other Twi'leks, he has lekku instead of hair.
  • Dramatic Irony: He and Tai don't believe that Caleb will last long under Master Depa Billaba, under belief that he's not skilled enough and that association with Billaba is cursed. Caleb survives Order 66 and becomes a powerful Jedi, all thanks to the teachings & Heroic Sacrifice of Master Billaba, while Sammo & Tai's fates are in Uncertain Doom.
  • Establishing Character Moment: When he first appears, he attacks Caleb during sparring without warning, claiming that it's allowed since the Separatists won't wait either. Caleb proceeds to get a cut hand, and neither Sammo or Tai show concern for him even before Yoda says it's just minor.
  • Hero-Worshipper: While Tai mocks Caleb for thinking he could be Depa Billaba's Padawan, Sammo ignores the conversation and is instead glancing at a passing-by Anakin & Artoo.
  • Jerkass: As aforementioned, he attacked Caleb without warning, dismisses Caleb as being a kid (despite being only months older than him), and he also gets in on the rumor that being associated with Master Billaba is unlucky, rather than supporting Caleb for finally getting a Jedi Master (which also implies he and Tai are jealous that Caleb has been promoted sooner than them).
  • Jerkass Has a Point: Okay, yeah, the Separatists won't wait for you to recover... but on the other hand, does he really need to be that rough-and-tumble during training?
  • Karma Houdini: Yoda doesn't scold him off for suddenly attacking Caleb and getting him sent to the medbay. And for the rest of the comic, he never gets any sort of punishment for his jerkass tendencies towards Caleb (though admittedly, that part is more of a private matter that Caleb could solve himself by simply not interacting with them anymore).
  • Meaningful Name:
    • He shares his first name with Sammo Hung, an influential figure in martial arts films & Hong Kong action cinema.
    • Also, if you take the first letter of his first name and put it at the beginning of his last name, then you have "Squid Ammo". Whatever "ammo" is supposed to mean is up in the air, but "squid" may be in reference to the head-tail/tentacle-like appendages of Twi'leks.
  • Pet the Dog: Just about the only decent thing he does in the Kanan comic is comfort younglings when the Jedi Temple gets bombed by Separatists.
  • Those Two Guys: With Tai.
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: As Caleb becomes a Padawan and serves in the Clone Wars, whatever happened to him & Tai afterwards is unknown.
  • With Friends Like These...: Despite Caleb's thoughts describing them as his friends, neither Tai or Sammo have shown any real support for Caleb and instead often barb him, dismissing him as a Just a Kid.

  • Ambiguously Human: It's never made outright clear if she's human or not. Her hair decorations & facial markings may either be a part of her culture or she's from another species entirely.
  • Dramatic Irony: She and Sammo don't believe that Caleb will last long under Master Depa Billaba, under belief that he's not skilled enough and that association with Billaba is cursed. Caleb survives Order 66 and becomes a powerful Jedi, all thanks to the teachings & Heroic Sacrifice of Master Billaba, while Sammo & Tai's fates are in Uncertain Doom.
  • Jerkass: She dismisses Caleb as being a kid (despite being only months older than him), and she also gets in on the rumor that being associated with Master Billaba is unlucky, rather than supporting Caleb for finally getting a Jedi Master (which also implies she and Sammo are jealous that Caleb has been promoted sooner than them).

  • Death by Cameo: She gets killed during her small minutes of screen time.
  • Force-Choke: Vader casually kills her using this while fighting both Cin Drallig and White Malreaux.

Kalifa

Species: Human

Homeworld: Corellia

Voiced by: Gwendoline Yeo
Appearances: The Clone Wars

"We are not saviors here. Here, we are survivors."

Kalifa was the eldest of three Jedi Younglings who had been kidnapped by Trandoshan sport hunters sometime preceding or during the Clone Wars. By the time the similarly captured Ahsoka arrived on the island they were held, the three of them were losing hope, as their strength was enough only to hide and try to avoid being shot down for as long as possible.


  • Almighty Janitor: Kalifa, technically a youngling, was able to lift and strangle a Trandoshan using the Force. It could be handwaved with the extremely hard fight to survive on the Trandoshan hunting island, which required her to develop faster than usual.
  • Ambiguously Brown: Her voice actress is Chinese and Kalifa doesn't look too much like other Caucasian characters in the show. Although, it's kind of hard to tell with that hair.
  • In the Back: Garnac shot Kalifa in the back after his son died trying to kill her and Ahsoka.
  • I Will Only Slow You Down: Kalifa, knowing that she was dying, asks Ahsoka to save herself because she wants Ahsoka to take care of the others.
  • Last Request: Kalifa asked Ahsoka to take care of Jinx and O-Mer before dying from the wound caused by Garnac's blaster rifle.
  • The Leader: Kalifa was a Type II, calm, level-headed leader. After Ahsoka arrived, she slowly took over the position.
  • Power Trio: With O-Mer and Jinx.
  • Sacrificial Lion: Kalifa's death served to show that not even children are safe on the Wasskah.
  • Shell-Shocked Veteran: Surviving on Wasskah clearly had an effect on all of them, but Kalifa shows it the worst. She lost her temper with Ahsoka when recalling the previous Padawans who had been killed and hatefully attacked a Trandoshan hunter.
  • Token Human: Out of the remaining younglings on Wasskah, Kalifa is the only human.
  • Troubling Unchildlike Behavior: Kalifa Force chokes a Trandoshan with an expression of intense hatred on her face.
  • The World's Expert on Getting Killed: Kalifa has been held on the hunting island for the longest time, and has outlived Padawan learners, despite only being a youngling herself. She also told the older and better-trained Ahsoka to her face that she had experience in surviving the hunt. Naturally, she's killed soon after Ahsoka's arrival. Subverted, however, in that she was an expert in avoiding the Trandoshans as much as possible, and she died when they were ambushed while scouting after the Trandoshans' base.

Species: Twi'lek

Homeworld: Ryloth

Voiced by: Sunil Malhotra
Appearances: The Clone Wars

Jinx was a Twi'lek Jedi youngling who served in the Jedi Order during the Clone Wars. He was captured by the Trandoshans alongside Kalifa and O-Mer.


  • Alien Hair: Like all Twi'lek he has lekku instead of hair.
  • Almighty Janitor: Jinx can use Jedi Mind Trick, despite being a youngling who had been kidnapped before he was even made a Padawan (granted it took some help from Chewbacca to work). Could be handwaved with the extremely hard fight to survive on the Trandoshan hunting island, which required him and the others to develop faster than usual.
  • Ambiguously Brown: The Does This Remind You of Anything? situation of the Twi'lek people along with his actor being of South Asian & Indian descent points to him not being Caucasian-based.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Jinx can be very sarcastic at times:
    Ahsoka: Chewbacca says his homeworld is very close.
    Jinx: That's great, but it might as well be Coruscant as far as I'm concerned. We have no ship.
    Ahsoka: [translating Chewie's angry growling] He thinks he can contact his home planet, if we find a way to transmit a signal.
    Jinx: Right, and how would we do that? Send smoke signals?
  • The Lancer: He was acting as this to both Kalifa and Ahsoka.
  • Power Trio: With Kalifa and O-Mer.
  • Rubber-Forehead Aliens: Jinx is a Twi'lek.
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: As a youngling but old enough to begin Padawan training, either he was kept at the temple to catch him up to speed or he began Padawan training. Either way, it edges into Uncertain Doom regarding the execution of Order 66.

Appearances: The Clone Wars

This group of younglings participated the Gathering, a Rite of Passage, during which they harvested their own Kyber crystals. During the rite, they had to face and overcome their shortcomings and weaknesses. Afterwards, they learned how to built their first lightsabers from Professor Huyang. Their training in the Jedi Temple was apparently overseen by Tera Sinube.


  • An Aesop: All the kids have to learn one to get their lightsaber crystals.
  • Ambiguously Brown: Petro.
  • Badass Adorable: They are very adorable Jedi younglings.
  • Bilingual Dialogue: Gungi and Byph are physiologically incapable of speaking Galactic Basic, but they're perfectly capable of understanding it. So they use their own language to talk to the others (and each other), who are also capable of understanding them.
  • The Cameo: They were seen practicing lightsaber-wielding with Tera Sinube in "The Wrong Jedi" during Anakin's duel with Barriss.
  • Chekhov's Classroom: The younglings were shown practicing acrobatic moves in a flashback at the beginning of "The Gathering". In "Bound for Rescue", they use these moves to con their way into a travelling circus, allowing them to sneak into Hondo's base and rescue Ahsoka.
  • Children Are Innocent: Exceptionally so. They are so innocent, in fact, that the episodes they appear in are among the most lighthearted ones in the installment.
  • Conscience Makes You Go Back:
    • Petro's decision to come to Katooni's rescue rather than continue trying to find his own crystal.
    • Katooni pulls one on Hondo in "A Necessary Bond", convincing him to go back and rescue Ahsoka and the other younglings from Grievous. He does, even though he has nothing to gain from it.
  • Cool Mask: They all get one as part of their circus disguises in "Bound for Rescue".
  • Cool Sword: All of them, obviously, but Gungi stands out by making a lightsaber with a wood casing whereas the rest of the Younglings make regular ones.
  • Cowardly Lion: Byph in "The Gathering". He's completely grown out of it as of "Bound for Rescue".
  • Cute Little Fangs: Gungi is a Rare Male Example.
  • Determinator: Katooni, who scaled a cliff face to get to her lightsaber crystal.
  • Does Not Like Shoes:
    • Gungi is barefoot due to being a Wookiee.
    • In addition, Zatt and Byph are barefoot when outside of their cold weather gear.
  • Face Your Fears: Byph had to do this to get his crystal.
  • Fish People: Zatt, who is a Nautolan like Kit Fisto.
  • Generation Xerox: Petro seems very similar to Anakin in a few ways.
  • Hero-Worshipper: Petro has a few moments of this:
    • While building his lightsaber, he exclaimed that he'll challenge Obi-Wan to a duel with it. Later when Obi-Wan answered their distress call, he went "The General Kenobi?"
    • After watching Ahsoka taking on Hondo and his pirates, he exclaimed to Zatt and Ganodi, who weren't present, that they should have seen her while wildly imitating lightsaber swinging. Later, when the younglings watched Ahsoka dueling Grievous he clenched his fists and took a typical jittering pose.
  • Humanoid Aliens: Ganodi and Gungi both have the basic body structure of a human, but as a Wookiee and a Rodian, they are significantly different from Rubber-Forehead Aliens, Human Aliens, and humans.
  • I Surrender, Suckers: Petro lets the pirates take his lightsaber away from him. This is because he assembled it incorrectly and it will explode if activated for more than a second, which he goads the pirates into doing.
  • Indy Ploy: Petro spends most of "Bound for Rescue" doing line-of-sight planning, which works out rather well.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Petro.
  • Just a Machine: Ganodi's initial thoughts on Huyang.
  • Laser Blade: Their quest to build theirs forms the impetus of the plot for the Young Jedi arc.
  • Leeroy Jenkins: Petro.
  • Morality Pet: Katooni serves the role as one for Hondo.
  • Needle in a Stack of Needles: Ganodi winds up in a cave full of crystals and has to trust the Force to find the right one.
  • Nice Job Breaking It, Hero!: Petro talked his friends into launching a counterattack, despite Ahsoka directly forbidding it, which ultimately achived nothing, except necessitating Ahsoka to put herself in risk, which resulted in her capture.
  • Odd Friendship: As of the end of "A Necessary Bond", there are hints that Katooni is beginning to form one with Hondo. It could also count as an Intergenerational Friendship.
  • Only Sane Girl: Katooni is usually the voice of reason.
  • Out of Focus: Ganodi got the least screentime and character development of the six younglings, not even joining the rescue party.
  • Pint-Sized Powerhouse: What they've all become as of "A Necessary Bond".
  • Rubber-Forehead Aliens: Zatt is Nautolan like Kit Fisto and Katooni is a Tholothian like Adi Gallia.
  • Run or Die: When cornered by Grievous, Ahsoka and the younglings prepared to fight, but in the last second Hondo and Katooni arrived with the Slave-I to extract them. Ahsoka instructed the younglings to run, while she held up Grievous. Once the younglings were safe, Ahsoka too abandoned the fight, knowing that she had no chance of winning.
  • Small Name, Big Ego: Petro thinks he can beat Obi-Wan and kill Grevious upon building his lightsaber. Yeah, sure thing, kiddo.
  • The So-Called Coward: Byph has to overcome his timid personality in "The Gathering". In "A Test of Strength", he willingly risks being shot by acting as bait to lure the bad guys into a trap.
  • Token Human: Among the Gathering Younglings, Petro is the only human.
  • Too Many Mouths: As an Ithorian, Byph has two of them. Downplayed in that it isn't played for horror and the mouths are on the sides of his head.
  • Uncertain Doom: Considering they're younglings that are usually in the Jedi Temple unless they go off on the occasional field trip, they may have been at the Jedi Temple during the Jedi Purge.
  • The Unintelligible: Byph and Gungi.

R4-P17

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/r4-p17_sw_9008.png

R4-P17, nicknamed Arfour, was an astromech droid, programmed with a female personality, that was assigned to Jedi Master Obi-Wan Kenobi prior to and throughout the Clone Wars. She was destroyed by a buzz droid during Battle of Coruscant.


  • Character Death: She is broken after a buzz droid ripped off her head during the Battle of Coruscant.
  • Non-Human Sidekick: To Obi-Wan, particularly during the events of Attack of the Clones while assisting him in investigating Kamino and tracking Jango Fett.
  • Off with Her Head!: Her dome is ripped off by a buzz droid.
  • Satellite Character: To Obi-Wan, never receiving as much focus or attention as R2-D2.
  • Schrödinger's Canon: She was originally an R4-series astromech that had the standard conical head instead of the R2-type dome and had an accident. She was then rebuilt and hard-wired into Obi-Wan's Jedi starfighter and given an R2 dome for practical purposes. When the Jedi Order was transitioning away from the Delta-7 model of starfighters, R4 was given a new body.
  • What Measure Is a Non-Human?: Obi-Wan does not really react much to her destruction in Revenge of the Sith despite her having served him for years.

    R4-G9 

R4-G9

Appearances: Revenge of the Sith

R4-G9 was Obi-Wan's replacement astromech droid following R4-P17's destruction at the Battle of Coruscant. She accompanied him to Utapau during the hunt for General Grievous.


  • Satellite Character: Like her predecessor, she doesn't get much focus and only serves as R4-P17's replacement.
  • Schrödinger's Canon: She was originally assigned to Aayla Secura, and then given to Obi-Wan as a temporary replacement for R4-P17 while she was being built a new body after the original Delta-7 starfighters (which had their astromechs hard-wired into the ship) were phased out.
  • Uncertain Doom: She was last seen dropping Obi-Wan off to Utapau and being sent back to the Vigilance alone as part of a diversion. This was only hours before Order 66 was executed.

Voiced by: David Tennant
Appearances: Age of Republicnote , The Clone Wars

"You must trust that the components that form your lightsaber are meant to be together; there is no other way. It is the Force that binds them."

Huyang was a Mark IV architect droid professor based aboard the Jedi vessel, the Crucible, who for a thousand generations had taught Jedi younglings, one of them being the future Grand Master Yoda, how to build their lightsaber following the Gathering.


  • Aerith and Bob: His name is unusual for most droids.
  • An Arm and a Leg: Has both primary arms shot off by one of Hondo's pirates, but it's more of an inconvenience than anything. He gets them reattached at the end of "A Necessary Bond".
  • Badass Boast:
    • He gives one to Ganodi when she questions the ability of a droid to teach them about lightsaber construction.
      Huyang: Many years I have been on this ship teaching many a Jedi before you, and I will continue teaching many a Jedi after you. Call me what you want, but inside my memory banks I contain a record of every lightsaber ever made, and the Jedi who fashioned it.
    • And another, when one of Hondo's pirates shot off his head:
      Huyang: How dare you?! I've lived a thousand years on this ship and never lost a fight. I'm not about to start today!
  • Badass Bookworm: Has an extensive knowledge of lightsabers and how they are built.
  • Badass Teacher: Not only does he teach younglings about building their lightsabers, he also defends them from pirates.
  • Deadpan Snarker: One would imagine it comes from having to deal with Jedi children.
  • Expy: What if Ollivander was C-3P0?
  • Gentleman Snarker: Huyang has the demeanor of a gentlemanly English professor, but he isn't averse to a bit of snarking at his students.
  • Lampshade Hanging: When meeting Gungi, he points out that Force-sensitive Wookiees are exceptionally rare.
  • Losing Your Head: Has his head blown off by space pirates. He finds this highly annoying.
  • Meaningful Name: Maybe. In Cebuano, "huyang" means "weak" or "vulnerable", especially regarding body parts, befitting how he is mostly a Non-Action Guy (or may be an Ironic Name, given that getting his limbs blasted off doesn't stop him from fighting Hondo's pirates).
  • Multi-Armed Multitasking: His backpack unfolds into an extra pair of arms, which he uses in his work.
  • Off with His Head!: His head gets separated from his body, but remains operational. He can even control his body remotely. His head is re-attached in "A Necessary Bond".
  • The Professor: But of course.
  • Quintessential British Gentleman: A mechanical version of the trope: He has a High-Class Glass, speaks in a British accent, is polite and soft-spoken to all, and has a metallic mustache on his face.
  • Ridiculously Human Robot: Judging by the boast mentioned above, he's rather proud of himself, and doesn't take perceived insults to his task well.
  • Strange-Syntax Speaker: At times, he uses the same backwards syntax as Master Yoda, likely as a way to illustrate how old he is.
  • Time Abyss: He claims to have taught many generations of Jedi Younglings how to build their lightsabers. He mentions that even Yoda had been one of them.
  • Uncertain Doom: Considering that the Jedi and anyone associated with them were hunted and killed by the Empire after Palpatine executed Order 66, things aren't looking so good for Huyang unless he somehow managed to go into hiding or found another method of avoiding persecution.
  • Who Needs Their Whole Body?: He has his head and arms blown off, but his body still manages to kick the ass of some of Hondo's pirates.

    M5-BZ 

M5-BZ (Beezee)

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/m5bz_sw_9336.png

Appearances: The Clone Wars

M5-BZ was the personal droid of Jedi Master Tera Sinube. Beezee was assigned to D-Squad during the Clone Wars.


  • Heroic Sacrifice: He opens a airlock on the Renown while it is in hyperspace to suck a group of buzz droids out of the ship to save the rest of D-Squad, but was sucked out into space with them. The remaining members of the squad realize that they need to pull themselves together so that they can save the Republic conference that the Separatists want to ambush and so that Beezee's sacrifice won't be in vain.
  • Mind Rape: It is glossed over, but M5-BZ essentially undergoes a lobotomy when Dr. Gubacher removes several of his memory data cores to make room for Colonel Gascon to ride in his dome. Gubacher even notes before the procedure that it is a good thing Beezee will have no memory of the experience, implying that is a pretty horrendous process for a droid to experience.
  • What Measure Is a Non-Human?: The Jedi do not raise any protest over Beezee's memory being erased, while they would have outraged had the same thing been done to a flesh-and-blood sentient being.

    QT-KT 

QT-KT (Qutee)

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/qtkt_sw_9677.png

Model: R2-series astromech droid

Appearances: The Clone Wars

QT-KT was the personal droid of Jedi Master Aayla Secura. Qutee was also assigned to D-Squad during the Clone Wars.


  • Distaff Counterpart: To R2-D2, being the same model as him and a similar personality, except with feminine programing.
  • Expy: Of Promoted Fan-built Droid R2-KT, who had already appeared in "Storm Over Ryloth", as the showrunners wanted to avoid the confusion of two units called R2.
  • Magnetism Manipulation: Doctor Gubacher upgrades her with a very powerful magnet that pops out of her dome for D-Squad's mission.
  • Pink Means Feminine: She has a feminine personality program, so naturally she's painted pink.
    • Interestingly enough R4, who is of the same make as QT and R2, is also programmed as a female but red instead of pink.
  • Punny Name: "Cutie Katie", anyone?
  • Shock and Awe: Like R2-D2, she can shoot jolts of electricity out that can disable battle droids.

    U9-C4 

U9-C4 (Ceefor)

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/u9c4_sw_2726.png

Appearances: The Clone Wars

U9-C4 was the personal droid of Jedi Knight Thongla Dur. Ceefor was assigned to D-Squad during the Clone Wars.


  • The Generic Guy: Ceefor does not have any large role in the plot or outstanding traits.
  • Laser Cutter: Dr. Gubacher upgrades him with a very powerful laser cutter, although he has to be standing still and be secured while using it, otherwise the recoil will knock him over.
  • Meaningful Name: C4, like the explosive. It's a Non-Indicative Name, though, since he shows no talent for bombs.

    Russo-ISC 

Russo-ISC

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/russo_isc_sw.jpg

Model: Crime scene analyzer droid

Appearances: The Clone Wars

"I am Russo-ISC, crime scene analyzer for the Jedi."

Russo-ISC was a droid in the Galactic Republic that worked for the Jedi Order as a crime scene analyzer. He participated in the investigation of the bombing of the Jedi Temple hangar.


  • Glasses Pull: Has a tendency to do this with his retractable visor.
  • Shout-Out: To the main character of CSI: Miami, Lieutenant Horatio Caine. "Russo" is derived from Horatio, while "ISC" is CSI backwards.

    Arex 

Arex

Model: Jedi training droid

Appearances: Dark Lord of the Sith

"I have spent time with many Jedi here, over the years, and I would like to believe I have absorbed some small piece of their wisdom."

A Jedi training droid stationed at the Jedi outpost on the river moon of Al'doleem. By the time of Order 66, the only Jedi left to accompany on the outpost was Jedi Master Kirak Infil'a, who had taken the Barash vow.


  • Curb-Stomp Battle: Like the other defenses of the outpost, he was swiftly taken out by Vader, his parts being thrown into the river below.
  • Time Abyss: It's likely he wasn't created recently.

    Cator 

Cator

A droid assigned to defend a hidden vault filled with the Jedi Order's most important artifacts.


  • Heroic Neutral: He is programmed only to protect the vault, meaning that he remained hidden inside even while the 501st attacked the Jedi Temple.
  • Innocently Insensitive: Even though Vader's in his suit, the Vault Guardian's scanners register him as Anakin Skywalker. The Guardian addreses Anakin by that name, not knowing what a Berserk Button it is.
  • Super Reflexes: He's able to catch a lightsaber thrown by Darth Vader.

Historical Jedi

    "Prime Jedi" 

"Prime Jedi"

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/prime_jedi.jpg

Species: Unknown

Homeworld: Unknown

Appearances: The Last Jedi note 

The very first member of the Jedi Order.


  • All There in the Manual: The identity of the being in the mosaic in Ahch-To is never mentioned in the theatrical film proper. All information about him comes from supplementary materials.
  • Everyone Calls Him "Barkeep": His name is unknown, being only referred to as the ”Prime Jedi”.
  • Founder of the Kingdom: As the first Jedi he is likely to be the founder of the Jedi Order.
  • Our Founder: The only depiction of a sapient being in the First Jedi Temple at Ahch-To is a mosaic of him inside a pool of water in the main chamber.

    Tarre Vizsla 

Tarre/Tar Vizsla

See his entry on the Mandalorians page under Historical Figures.

    Rur 

Rur

See his entry on the Other Force-users and Beings page.

    Rur's unnamed opponent 

???

Appearances: Doctor Aphranote 

"Your heresy is over."

The leader of an assault against Rur and his followers of the Ordu Aspectu in the Fortress of Garn. This attack ultimately failed, with her and the fate of other Jedi participating in the attack being unknown.


  • Ambiguous Situation: In Aphra Senior's version, the flashback shows the Ordu Aspectu fighting off red-bladed opponents who are said to be the main Jedi Order. In Aphra's cynical version, Rur was even more of a loco and Rur's unnamed opponent was clearly a good guy. We don't even know if she exists at all in the true story.
  • Blind Weaponmaster: In Aphra Senior's version, she has a visor over her eyes, rather reminiscent of the Miraluka species from Legends.
  • We Used to Be Friends: In Aphra's version, she was friends with Rur before he turned.
  • What the Hell, Hero?: She gives Rur this in both versions. Rur stubbornly believes that the Jedi are supposed to be looking for immortality. In Aphra Senior's version, she once again tells him that the Jedi do many other things alongside seeking immortality, and in Aphra's version, she asks how he can fall to such a low level, but apparently like the many other times he was told this, Rur refuses to listen.
  • You Gotta Have Purple Hair: Her hair is a lavender color in Aphra's version.
