How does the beginning storyline differ for these two classes?

Also, excuse my ignorance...but what exactly is the Consular compared to the Knight?

Do they outrank the Knight?

Do they not start out as Padawans?

What exactly is the Consular?

The Jedi Consular is simply another path for the Jedi. Like the Jedi Guardian and Jedi Sentinel paths. The Jedi Consular focuses on deepening their connection to the Force. They focus on diplomacy, gathering allies and creating peace.

The Jedi Knight is the martial Jedi class, focused on their lightsaber skill.

Copied from swtor wiki...
==============================
The Jedi Knight arrives by shuttle on Tython, where they are greeted by Derrin Weller, then confronted with the pressing issue of an attack on the Temple's grounds by Flesh Raiders. Upon repelling these Flesh Raiders and helping to free other Padawans, Derren contacts the Knight and sends him to The Gnarls to seal a Flesh raider cave that is allowing the Flesh Raiders easier access to the temple. Inside the cave the Knight discovers a person named Callef, who is assisting the Flesh Raiders with his Force sensitivity. The Knight then defeats Callef and reports back to Orgus Din and Satele Shan.

The Jedi Consular, still a Padawan, lands on Tython where they meet their new master Yuon Par. They immediately learn that Flesh Raiders are attacking the grounds of the Jedi Temple. Normal training is cast aside as the padawan is directed to assist by retrieving four ancient holoprojectors that the Jedi founders created and which are located on the template grounds. After watching and retrieving the first three holoprojectors, the padawan discovers that the fourth holoprojector is missing.
============================

That's pretty much the way the stories go. The Knight AC's fight bosses and the Consular AC's search for knowledge. But the stories differ right at the start. They are both given the task of dealing with the Fleshraiders but they resolve the problem in different ways. The Knight is like a general leading armies and the Consolar is the diplomate that goes out and enlists those arrmies. The Knight takes a power base and smashes any target. The Consular smashes key targets to build a power base. And thus their stories diverge right after they kill thier first few Fleshraider.
Clones are people two.

At the beginning they are the same. Now at the end it is vastly different
