Valiant, Determined, Guardian of Peace
A symbol of hope in dark times, the Jedi Knight stands for the legacy of the Jedi Order – twenty thousand years of protecting the Republic and keeping the peace across the galaxy. Jedi Knights have served as generals, guerilla fighters and warriors for many generations.
Jedi Knights hone body and mind into perfect harmony, combining foresight of the Force with unrivaled reflexes and practiced physical precision, turning combat into an art form, gracefully executing acrobatic feats with elegant lightsaber tactics.
As a source for inspiration to allies and intimidation to enemies, their presence is welcome in any confrontation. Few are foolish enough to challenge a seasoned Jedi Knight unless they have the skills and technology to even the odds.

Guardians become a wall between the people of the Republic and their enemies, standing in the face of overwhelming odds and dare their opponents to attack. Their concentration and use of the Force allows smooth movement, making them a hard target to take down.
Class Combat Styles
Damage – Vigilance and Focus Guardians unleash a whirlwind of lightsaber and force attacks dealing heavy and lasting damage.
Tank – Defense Guardian reinforces their heavy armor with the force, soaking up the brunt of attacks, protecting allies.
Control and focus are the hallmarks of the Sentinel. Through years of training, they learn to use two lightsabers simultaneously to create an intricate web of damage that is almost impossible to evade. They can see holes in their enemies defenses and flaws in their own technique and how best to plan for both.
Class Combat Styles
Damage – Watchman, Combat and Concentration Sentinels have focused lightsaber training and are capable of wielding dual lightsabers to ensure high damage is a short time.
Tython – The mysterious Deep Core world of Tython is the birthplace of the Jedi Order. Millennia ago, Tythonian warriors and scholars developed a unique mystic and martial philosophy while studying the Force. Today, their Jedi descendants excavate ancient Tythonian ruins and relearn what was lost.
After the recent destruction of the Jedi Temple on Coruscant, the Jedi made their new home on Tython. The mountainous planet remains mostly unexplored, and the violent natives pose a constant threat. The order remains committed to rebuilding here, however, and is now training a new generation of Padawans.

The lightsaber is the iconic symbol of the Jedi. Through the Force, it becomes an extension of the wielder; serving as both a powerful tool for defense and a devastating weapon against the dark side. Padawans, however, typically use electroblade training swords until they have proven themselves worthy. Only then can a Padawan make a pilgrimage to the Forge on Tython to construct a lightsaber in accordance with ancient Jedi traditions. Lightsabers come in both single- and double-bladed forms, and their blades can be a variety of colors. Blue, green and yellow are the most common among the Jedi, though there are examples of other hues such as magenta and cyan. The color of a given lightsaber’s blade is largely determined by the crystals in the hilt that power the weapon. Different crystals confer varying properties on the weapon, allowing each lightsaber to be customized by its creator.

During the Great War, the Jedi Order was granted use of Republic military vessels, but these starships proved unsuitable for the specialized assignments Jedi often undertake. Eventually the Jedi Council decided to commission a new corvette, custom-built for Jedi missions. The Defender-class corvette is built on two decks. The lower deck is based on a standard keel and houses a cargo hold, engine compartment and full medical bay. Most of the Defender’s customization is on the flight deck, which includes a private cabin and meditation chamber, along with a state-of-the-art cockpit. At the center of the ship is a spacious conference room equipped with a holo communicator for discussions with the Jedi Council or diplomatic talks. Although peace is a key tenet of the Jedi, so is self-defense. In case of hostile action, the Defender possesses a high-powered shield array and twin laser cannons.
