Jedi Order

this was the name given to the complete membership of Jedi Padawans, Knights, and Masters, as well as the guidelines for their training and actions. During the era of the Old Republic, the Jedi Order was separate from the government, although its actions were governed by the Galactic Senate. In this relationship, the Senate oversaw the activities of the Jedi Order, but the Jedi were free to carry out their missions within their own guidelines. The Jedi Order of the Old Republic was governed by the twelve-member Jedi Council, which made the final decisions on the missions that were carried out by the Jedi Knights. After Emperor Palpatine destroyed the Jedi Knights with the exeuction of Order 66, the Jedi Order was all but eliminated for many decades. When Luke Skywalker finally established his Jedi praxeum on Yavin 4, he started out by using the basic guidance he had received from Obi-Wan Kenobi and Yoda as the basis for his own training style. However, he avoided the formation of a new Jedi Order in an effort to separate his students from the government. While this allowed Master Skywalker to rebuild the Jedi Knights, he still had to battle the old prejudices that were formed against the Jedi during the final decades of the Old Republic and the era of the New Order. When the Yuuzhan Vong invaded the galaxy and challenged all known beliefs about the Force, Master Skywalker was forced to form a new Jedi Order that was based on the knowledge that both the Light and Dark Sides of the Force were simply aspects of a single power. Based on this, the new Jedi Order was founded on the belief that a Jedi Knight should act to ensure that there was balance in the Force, regardless of the way in which they achieved balance. Unfortunately, in the wake of the Qoribu Crisis, Master Skywalker found that the Jedi Order was losing its way. While embracing this new philosophy, Master Skywalker felt that the Jedi had lost their identity and their place in the galaxy. Thus, he vowed to become more of a leader and less of a guide, hoping that the re-establishment of a leadership council would restore the Jedi to their rightful place as the guardians of peace and justice in the galaxy.
