The Jedi Order was a noble, religious order of protectors and elective theocracy united in their devotion to the light side of the Force—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.
The Order was virtually annihilated by the Sith Order and betrayed by the Republic they had long protected for nearly all of its existence. Only a few survived the Jedi Purge and went into exile. However, Anakin Skywalker, with the indirect help of his son, Luke Skywalker, eventually defeated the Sith during the Galactic Civil War, and Luke restored the Jedi Order during the time of the New Republic.
Skywalker went on to become the Jedi Master of a new generation of Jedi—fulfilling the promise he made to Yoda by passing on what he had learned. But the Order would be betrayed and destroyed by Ben Solo, seduced by Snoke of the First Order and adopted the persona of Kylo Ren, leader of the Knights of Ren while Skywalker went into exile.
The Jedi Order is ancient order of force users who study the light side of the force. There long term enemy the Sith in turn practice the dark side of the force. The jedi are diplomatic peace keepers but will fight if needed to.
Members of the order follow a code known as the jedi code. There are several ranks in the jedi order which show how far you have progressed. Most jedi are took from there planets a couple after they are born but some like Ahsoka Tano,who started at the age of 3,and Anakin Skywalker,who started at the age of 9. After taking classes as a youngling you and your clan get took to the ice world of Ilum to undergo a ceremony called the gathering where they get there first lightsaber by finding a Kyber Crsyrtal. After this they are ready to become padawans.
Then once they've became a padawan they have to pass the Jedi Trials to become a fully fledged jedi knight. Once they've became a knight they may become a jedi master and may get a seat on the Jedi High Council(Which only 12 people can be in). They may even get the roll of Grandmaster.
Ancient Times Edit
Near the start of the jedi they came in possession of the ice world Ilum which is scattered with Kyber Crystals with these crystals the jedi began to create lightsabers. As the jedi began to spread they got a vessel called the Crucible which took students from where ever they where to the ice world.
A age came which was called the hundred years of darkness during this time a rogue jedi created a group called the sith. The order decided to cast him out of the order but evantually people joined him thinking that you could only harness the true powers of the force through hate instead of passivity. The sith wanted to rule the galaxy starting a war. The sith gained a planet called Moraband. A battle on this planet caused the sith to evacuate. They had another battle on Takodana which is where the sith began using superweapons powered by giant Kyber Crystals which possessed power to destroy planets.
At around 5000 BBY the jedi built a temple,which would be there headquaters for years to come, on the ruins of a old sith shrine. Around this time the jedi joined the republic. The jedi began a war with the Zygerrians because the republic outlawed slavery. The jedi managed to emerge victorious destroying there slave empire and forcing the Zygerrians back to there home planet.
The jedi started a war with the Mandalorians stopping them from expanding into the galaxy. The mandalorians ransacked the jedi temple when Pre Vizla's ancestor stole the Darksaber. The war with the sith had just about finished around the sith went into hiding with jedi believing them extinct. The last sith Darth Bane started the rule of two.
Invasion of Naboo Edit
The jedi now with 10,000 knights spread across the galaxy. the jedi sent Qui-Gon Jinn and his padawan Obi-Wan Kenobi to help sort it out they did but Qui-Gon was killed by a sith with Obi-Wan managing to deeply wound the sith and tell the order about the return of the sith and let Anakin become his padawan.
The Clone Wars Edit
The clone wars begun when jed knight Obi-Wan Kenobi his padawan Anakin and Padme Amidala,Naboo's senator,where captured by the Separatists. So a Strike team lead by Mace Windu with 212 jedi in it hid among the crowd until time was right. The jedi revealed themselves resulting in the battle of Geonosis. After a good fight only around 30 jedi where left with at least 3 quarters of the survivors in a circle surrounded by droids but Yoda arrived just in the nick of time with an army of clones who had been mysteriously ordered 10 years prior by master Sifo-Dyas. The survivors managed to get out of the arena and joined a squad of clones which they would command.The clone wars ended with order 66 killing most of the jedi still alive after the clone wars.
Order 66 Edit
After the emperor killed Mace Windu and 3 other jedi the Emperor ordered order 66 to all clone commanders and they killed thousands of jedi including jedi masters Plo Koon, Ki-Adi Mundi and Stass Allie. Anakin Skywalker a jedi knight joined the sith and led hundreds of clone into the jedi temple where he killed all jedi in the temple. Though some jedi survived including Kanan Jarrus, Obi-Wan Kenobi and Yoda.
Jedi Purge Edit
After Order 66 many surviving jedi where hunted down by Darth Vader and the inquistiors. One of the first jedi to be killed was Kirak Infil'a who was killed by Darth Vader in 19 BBY. Vader then corrupted his crystal and used it in his lightsaber. Master Jocasta Nu was trying to build a jedi school with all the holocrons she had managed to collect but she needed students so she snuck back into the Jedi Temple to find a memory holocron with all known force sensitive children before Order 66. While in the temple she saw the Grand inquistor disrespecting the jedi archives so she attacked him she was then killed by Darth Vader. Luminara Unduli was captured and imprisoned on Stygeon Prime before being executed by the Grand Inquisitor. Obi-Wan was killed by Darth Vader on the Death Star in the year 0 BBY. Yoda died on Dagobah of natural causes in the year 4 ABY. 4 jedi survived on Anoat- Nuhj, Mususiel, Zubain Ankonori, Khandra- they where hunted down by an inquisitor who killed Mususiel on Anoat, Zubain on Mataou and Nuhj and Khandra on Burnin Konn.
Jedi Reborn Edit
After the Galactic Civil War Luke Skywalker started training 12 jedi one of them his nephew Ben Solo. But Ben had so much power that Luke tried to kill him but Ben overpowed Luke and brought the building down on him. When Luke was unconscious Ben killed half them and took the other half nad made the Knights of Ren. Then Luke went to exile on Ahch-To and blaimed himself for the death of his padwans. After years of exile Rey found and had 3 lessons with him before she went to save the remaining Resistance members. Just when to door was blasted open Luke appeared and fought Ben but just as Ben hit him with his lightsaber he revealed himself to be mediating and he wasn't really there but this distraction allowed the resistance members to escape. But doing the force mediation was too much and he died doing it.
The Jedi Order was led by a Master of the Order, an elected leader as the head of the entire Order. Direct administrative power was held within the Jedi High Council, a unicameral legislature made up of Jedi Masters overseen by a Grand Master.
Though was able to govern it own affairs without interference and retained independent from the Galactic Republic, the Order maintained an allegiance to the Galactic Senate but not to the Republic itself.
