Jedi Consular

Visionary, Ambassador, Seeker of Jedi Wisdom

For more than 20,000 years, the Jedi Order has worked to promote peace and balance in the Galactic Republic, but each new day brings with it a new threat, promising to rip the Jedi and the entire galaxy apart. If the Republic is to survive, it needs leaders and visionaries; it needs the Jedi Consular.

Jedi Consulars channel the power of the Force for strength in combat and wisdom in diplomacy. Years of arduous training and meditation have sharpened Consulars’ minds to cut to the truth as cleanly as their Lightsabers cut through their foes. Whether unlocking long forgotten mysteries of the Jedi, raising armies to fight for the Republic or engaging in mortal combat with Dark Lords of the Sith, the Consulars’ deep attunement to the Force gives them all the power they need to rise to the occasion with poise and balance.

Intimate attunement with the deepest Force mysteries gives Jedi Consulars the insight and empathy to deftly handle charged conflicts that confound even the most cunning Senators and governors—but Consulars know when it’s time to talk and when it’s time to fight. When negotiations turn aggressive, Consulars demonstrate their gifts of foresight—anticipating and deflecting enemy attacks with fluid strikes from their dual-bladed Lightsaber.

Facing the Darkness Within

Jedi Consulars always seek to grow their knowledge of the galaxy, in understanding of themselves, and in comprehension of the Force that binds it all together. The commitment to this pursuit gives Consulars an unrivaled capacity for clarity in situations otherwise shrouded in darkness. However, this same dedication can also prove to be extremely perilous—inviting Consulars to explore paths that are better left untraveled. Some of the Jedi Order’s greatest minds have been seduced to the dark side through purely academic inquiries. The Consular knows the pain of this temptation as a battle-hardened warrior knows the throbbing of an old wound.

Before they can dispel the darkness in the galaxy, Jedi Consulars know they must first come to terms with the darkness within. There’s no avoiding the temptation to take shortcuts or even to use their knowledge for personal power; Consulars must constantly check their own motives. When tempted to step onto the path leading to darkness, Consulars must remember the tormented fate of the Jedi who have passed that way before. This is the only way they can unite the Jedi Order and the Republic and rally the troops to rescue the galaxy from the menacing darkness.
 

Field Reconnaissance

In a more peaceful age, Jedi Consulars may have humbly dedicated their lives to service as keepers of Jedi lore or as ambassadors in service to the Republic—tasks for which Consulars are uniquely qualified. However, as the shadow of the Empire has spread further across the galaxy, Consulars have stepped up to face the darkness on the front lines of battle as often as they’ve faced it when exploring the mysteries of the Force.

Outfitting

Preferring to stay as nimble on the battlefield as they are in negotiations, Jedi Consulars avoid the heavy battle armor worn by many Jedi Knights, Dense polymers and Cortosis armors would weigh them down; light cloaks and ornamented robes suit their strengths better, and the efforts they most often find themselves engaged in. No matter where they go, however, Consulars are never without the Lightsaber that marks their initiation into the Jedi Order.

Combat Tactics

The Consular’s powers go far beyond meditation and mediation, and nothing illustrates this as vividly as their graceful movements in battle. Whether beset by an army of assassin droids or caught in the middle of soured negotiations, the Jedi Consular fights with an open conduit for the Force; manipulating massive forces to disable or even destroy their enemies.

The dual-bladed Lightsaber preferred by many Consulars requires a skilled approach to dueling. Wielding this weapon, Jedi Consulars will draw upon the Force to sense their opponents’ locations and strike them all down with precision.

The Jedi Consular doesn’t just detect disturbances in the Force—sometimes they create them. This powerful ability allows the Consular to project a wall of pure Force energy into their opponents.

The Jedi Consular has a preternatural understanding of how the Force connects all things, and they draw on this knowledge to toss enemies of all sizes into the air, before hurling them to the ground.

Specialization: Sage

The mysteries of the Force are endless. A Jedi Sage, deeply attuned to the
Force and devoted to uncovering its esoteric secrets, knows this better
than any in the galaxy. These masters of the Force are famed for their
wisdom and empathy as much as they are for their powerful healing and defensive skills. In troubled times, a Sage brings together the wisdom
of the past with cutting insight and the power of the Force to change
the flow of galactic events.

Specialization: Shadow

A Shadow serves the Jedi Order by being a silent observer and, when action is necessary, a subtle hand. To avoid rash decisions on the part of the Council, Shadows go unseen, gathering information and quietly thwarting those
who seek to threaten the Jedi order. Employing Force techniques
that cloud enemy minds, Shadows slip into hostile territory,
and when necessary, they strike enemies down with
deadly efficiency.

Known Associate: Qyzen Fess

Qyzen's search for the galaxy’s deadliest beasts has taken him from the swamps of Belkadan to Tatooine’s endless deserts. He has no interest in possessions, needing only his weapons and his tally of jagganath points; a score every Trandoshan must earn through honorable kills to appease the Scorekeeper, their goddess. Famed as a peerless hunter and tracker, he's hunted everything from sand demons to rancor beasts, and though he has crossed paths with many wanderers in his travels, he has deemed few worthy of his notice.

Starship: Defender

Developed at the height of the Great War, the Defender was custom-built
for the Jedi Order. The Jedi Council commissioned the starship
after determining that Republic military vessels were not
well-suited to the Jedi’s more specialized missions.
The Defender’s exterior design is based on the
consumer model corvette, but it has been outfitted
with countless customized upgrades. Discover More
