Go To

A ten book series by Jude Watson, Jedi Quest takes place in the Star Wars Legends continuity, and is a Spiritual Successor of sorts to Watson's previous Jedi Apprentice series. The books deal with the developing relationship between Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker during the time between The Phantom Menace and Attack of the Clones, and details many of their missions. Like its predecessor it was aimed at a largely tween audience.

This series provides examples of:

  • Fish out of Water: Anakin when he has to go undercover at a regular school in one book.
  • Foreshadowing: The idea of voids, beings who can conceal their Dark Side presence from Jedi. Setup as well as justification for Palpatine.
  • Icy Blue Eyes: Omega has the same cold blue eyes as his father, Xanatos.
  • Maligned Mixed Marriage: One book has bounty hunters Floria and Dane mention that there parents came from rival neighboring clans and were shunned over their marriage, and eventually murdered for it when Floria and Dane were young children.
  • The Nondescript: Big Bad Granta Omega is a "Force Blank", a being with no connection to the Force whatsoever. As a result he blends right in, is typically forgotten by people after he leaves, and is all but immune to a Jedi's Spider-Sense.
  • Revenge by Proxy: Anakin had nothing to do with Xanatos' death, but that doesn't stop Omega from targeting him and several of his friends, simply due to their connection with Obi-Wan.
