A very good friend of mine told me to go out and find my place in the galaxy.
~Greetings and salutations. Before I begin I would like to welcome you to my profile and say thank you for visiting. My name is Tommy and I'm from NY. I chose the name Respawn1 because Respawn entertainment is the developer of one of my favorite games of all time. Respawn is also a gaming term used to describe the action of a computer player or human player coming back to life after being killed. So this account is Respawn1 and if it gets killed off I will name my next account Respawn2, etc, etc... I have many likes, vampires and werewolves being among them but I have a special love for all things Star Wars. From the music to the films I could never get enough. I went through many phases in my life but one constant has always been my love for all things Sci-fi but more specifically Star Wars. Whether my life be good or bad at the moment I always have an escape.....I still get chills when I see that opening crawl "A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away...."I'm a pretty old dude so my musical tastes reflect that. I like bands like Metallica, Megadeth, Black Sabbath, Inkubus Sukkubus, Iron Maiden and AC/DC...When I was a teenager I was huge into the whole Trance scene. For awhile that's all I listened to was Electronica music. From there I moved to Indstrial music which had a similar sound....It's during that phase I discovered the magical world of the Vampyre. Being from NY there was never a shortage of clubs and in the meat packing district there was a few underground "Vampire" clubs which you had to be invited to.
~I was always physically fit and enjoyed working out and playing sports. I was definitely classified as a jock in high school which kind of had me on the outer fringes of the Sci-fi community. People couldn't undertsand that I had an inner geek side even though I could throw a football or hit a baseball....So I had very few friends at that time that I could talk "Star Wars" with. I went to a few Sci-fi conventions during my day but definitely not as many as I would have liked. I had a couple of girlfriends who were totally into the whole Star Wars scene and it was among some of my favorite times. It was nice having someone to share my interests with :) So I'm a huge fan of horror and sci-fi movies and every now and then you get a film like Alien which incorporates elements of both; I like to call that the jackpot :) Stephen King and Anne Rice were always among my favorite authors but I like Dean Koontz and Clive Barker just as much. I also like books based on my favorite video game titles which include the likes of Halo, Mass effect Resident Evil and of course Star Wars. I'm also a huge ancient history buff and love reading/watching stuff on Ancient Rome, the Celts and the Samurai...My favorite instruments are the Taiko and the Bodhran, which are both kinds of drums. If you are familiar with the band Inkubus Sukkubus they incorporate the use of the Bodhran especially in their song called Wytches, which happens to be among my favorites :)
~I have other profiles and always do a theme which usually reflects the movies or video games I enjoy. For instance my Tommyboy account is a reflection on my love for the Godfather movie. My fanboy account reflects my love for all things "Vampire." My TLuv1 account totally reflects my love for Gangster Movies...With this account I chose to do one based on one of my favorite games, Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order. I came back this time to VR for a very specific purpose and that is to make new friends and get back in touch with those friends I haven't spoken to in a long time. I been going through a rough time as of late and seemed to have lost my best friend who I talked with every single day. I really enjoy going to the NY Renaissance Faire which is located in Tuxedo NY. I love watching the jousts and seeing everyone dress up in all their medieval finery. I never had the courage to dress up myself but maybe one day that will change. Most of my friends aren't into the whole knight scene so I find myself hard pressed to find people to go with me....Most of my dislikes have to do with bullies and loud mouths. Even on this site it seems there is no shortage of bullies. It seems people love to use their journals to talk about people or use their 30 accounts to threaten to block and downrate someone. I find this behavior ridiculous and I tend to avoid any drama associated with such people. I am fiercely loyal to those I call friends and I will do anything in my power for them.
~I live in the Bay Ridge section of Brooklyn, NY and at times I wish I was on the West Coast. To be honest I don't think I would ever be able to settle down in a small town. I need the traffic and noise associated with a city. I also need the faster pace of life. I like having a store or take out restaurant on every corner. I like the fact that during the summer months ice cream trucks still roam the streets. I'm a huge sports fan and like just about every sport there is. I have a special love for football though (American football not soccer) Even though I'm an old man I will still throw the football around in the school yard when I see the teenagers playing. They take it easy on me and they started calling "Grandpa"....lol. That is my new nickname. I tried to be as thorough as I could about myself and will try to add more in the future. I am so bummed out and feel so old because I need to wear glasses now. I totally need a hug...lol. I would once again like to thank you all for visiting my profile and please don't hesitate to message me. I really enjoy talking and making new friends....you can never have enough friends in this world....May the Force be with you.
The Jedi Order was a noble, religious order of protectors united in their devotion to the light side of the Force. With a history dating back thousands of years before the rise of the Galactic Empire, the Jedi Knights—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. During the Republic Era, the Jedi Temple on the Core World Coruscant served as the hub of all Jedi activity in the galaxy. The Temple was also a training school for younglings and Padawans, who learned the ways of the Force under the supervision of Jedi Masters, twelve of whom were elected to serve on the Jedi High Council—the Order's highest governing authority. The High Council's staff officers were the Grand Master, a title reserved for the wisest Jedi Master, and the Master of the Order, who served as the Order's appointed leader. The Jedi Code governed the Order's way of life; therefore, every Jedi was duty-bound to observe and uphold the Code or else risk banishment from the Order's ranks.
The emergence of the Sith Order was the result of a schism that fractured Jedi unity, dividing the Order between the Jedi who remained faithful to the light and a group of renegades that followed a rogue Jedi into exile for exploring the dark side of the Force. Henceforth, the Jedi and Sith warred with each other for centuries. Although the last conflict concluded with the fall of the Old Republic, the ancient Sith all but perished as well, allowing a new Galactic Republic to rise under the protection of the Jedi Order. Unknown to the Jedi, however, the Sith endured in secret for a millennium beginning with Darth Bane, the sole-surviving Dark Lord of the Sith who reformed the Sith way by creating the Rule of Two—a rule limiting the Sith Order's ranks to two members; a Sith Master to embody the power of the dark side; and a Sith apprentice to covet that power. While the Jedi and Republic moved on, their ancient wars with the Sith all but fading from memory, Bane's legacy spawned a lineage of Sith Lords that culminated in the rise of Darth Sidious approximately three decades before the Battle of Yavin.
During the final years of the Republic, the galaxy was beset by political instability and social unrest which, in turn, created a secessionist crisis that ultimately resulted in the formation of the Confederacy of Independent Systems. Lacking the sufficient manpower needed to protect the galaxy, the Jedi became commanders and generals in the newly-formed Grand Army of the Republic. For roughly three years they commanded armies of clone troopers in a conflict known as the Clone Wars, engaging the Confederacy's battle droid forces led by Count Dooku—a former Jedi Master who became a Sith Lord—and the cybernetic warlord General Grievous. Though the Jedi fought to preserve the Republic, the government they served was secretly taken over by Sidious who, as Senator Sheev Palpatine of Naboo, rose to power in the Senate and became the last Supreme Chancellor of the Republic.
The Chancellor's machinations culminated in the execution of Order 66, a secret protocol that turned the Jedi's clone soldiers against them, leading to an all but total extermination of the Jedi Order. With the Jedi eliminated, Sidious supplanted a thousand years of democracy with a new government known as the Galactic Empire. In addition, Sidious succeeded in turning Anakin Skywalker—the prophesied Chosen One who was destined to bring balance to the Force by destroying the Sith—to the dark side and anointed him Darth Vader. As a Sith Lord, the former Jedi Knight served the self-proclaimed Galactic Emperor by hunting down the few surviving Jedi who dispersed into hiding across the galaxy. In spite of the Sith's efforts, however, the Jedi continued to endure. Within a generation of the Empire's rise to power, Obi-Wan Kenobi and Yoda—both of whom survived the initial purge of the Order—trained Vader's son, Luke Skywalker, in the Jedi arts. Redeemed by his son's love, Anakin returned to the light and fulfilled his destiny as the Chosen One, destroying both himself and his Master during the Battle of Endor.
The Empire dissolved into various remnants as a result of their defeat in the Galactic Civil War, allowing the Alliance to Restore the Republic to rise as the New Republic. Under the new era, Luke Skywalker endeavored to restore the Order by training a new generation of Jedi. Among Skywalker's students was his nephew Ben Solo, the son of his twin sister, Princess Leia Organa, and the famed smuggler Han Solo. Ben, however, was seduced by the dark side of the Force at the coaxing of Snoke, an enigmatic figure who spearheaded the Imperial-inspired First Order. As a result, Ben adopted the name and persona of Kylo Ren, a First Order warlord and master of the Knights of Ren.
The new generation was betrayed and destroyed by Ren, who left the Jedi training temple burning by the time Skywalker recovered from the attack. Feeling responsible for Ben's fall and the massacre of his apprentices, he went into exile and disappeared from the galaxy, leaving only traces of his location on a star map. The First Order and the Resistance both sought to acquire the map, but ultimately it was the latter that succeeded due to the actions of the Jakku scavenger Rey. She followed the map to the planet Ahch-To, where the last Jedi had taken refuge in the first Jedi Temple.
Skywalker, stricken by grief and believing his return would only cause more problems, was reluctant to train Rey or another generation of Jedi. However, the last Jedi eventually returned to the fight, buying time for the Resistance to escape the siege of Crait led by Kylo Ren, who became the new Supreme Leader after killing his master, Snoke. Skywalker became one with the Force after exerting a great amount of energy to project himself across the galaxy to face his fallen nephew, but not before acknowledging that he would not be the last Jedi. His heroic tale spread across the galaxy, inspiring others and giving hope in a time of rising darkness.
The Jedi Order was founded in or around 6000 BBY(Before the Battle of Yavin) on Ahch-To by the Prime Jedi, the first Jedi of the Order. At the dawn of their order the Jedi came into possession of Ilum, an ancient planet encased in ice and littered with kyber crystals, the heart of the Jedi lightsaber. Considered the most sacred world to the Jedi Order, its ancient Temple would eventually host the Gathering, a tradition that would continue up until the fall of the Order. As the Jedi were spread throughout the galaxy, they acquired a vessel called the Crucible that would ferry students to Ilum so that they could perform the Gathering. It would become the base of the architect droid, Professor Huyang, for over a thousand years as he instructed on lightsaber designs and kept records of every single Jedi weapon created.
During the Hundred-Year Darkness, the Sith were born. Once brothers in the Force, the Sith Order was founded by a rogue Jedi who had come to the understanding that the true power of the Force lay not in contemplation and passivity and instead sought abandon and strength through the dark side of the Force. The Jedi Council at the time balked at this new direction, and the fallen Jedi was outcast, but he eventually gained followers to his new order. The power-hungry Sith sought to control the galaxy and opposed the Jedi, against whom they waged a series of wars which brought destruction to many worlds—including the Sith homeworld of Moraband, which the Sith were eventually forced to abandon. On another occasion, the Jedi Order and the Sith fought a battle on the planet Takodana. These wars also saw the construction of ancient superweapons powered by giant kyber crystals which possessed the power to destroy entire planets. These weapons, along with the crystals, were destroyed and a thousand years later believed by many Jedi to be merely legends.
About five-thousand years before the Battle of Yavin the Order eventually came to be headquartered at Coruscant, wherein they built a Temple that would pose as their main hub for thousands of generations. Underneath the structure lay buried an ancient Sith shrine, the inherent power of which was believed by the contemporary Jedi to have been neutralized and successfully capped. In truth, that power had seeped upward and outward since its entombment, infiltrating the hallways and rooms above, and weakening the Jedi Order for millennia without their knowledge.
It was during this time that the Jedi Order came into the service of what would be later called the Old Republic. Promising to uphold its ideals, the Jedi fought to maintain peace and freedom. When the Old Republic outlawed slavery, the Jedi set about to free those held, notably under the Zygerrian Slave Empire. The Jedi declared war on Zygerrians, whose economic success had resulted from enslaving beings from all corners of the galaxy before selling them at auctions. The Jedi Order managed to put an end to their practices, destroying their empire and exiling them to their homeworld, Zygerria. The Zygerrians developed a fierce hatred for the Jedi as a result.
At one point, a Jedi sect known as the Ordu Aspectu broke off from the Jedi Order. Led by the enigmatic Rur and his second in command, Amon, they sought to achieve the secrets to immortality. Eventually, a conflict broke out between them and the orthodox Jedi. The conflict ended with the signing of a peace treaty. The treaty allowed the Ordu Aspectu to continue their research but under Jedi scrutiny. During his experimentation, Rur attempted to copy his intellect into his citadel's computer core, only to accidentally transfer his very sentience as well. When the Jedi sought to investigate the computer closer, the computer activated the citadel's security droids, killing all members of the Ordu Aspectu and Jedi alike; but not before it was deactivated by Rur and Amon, before they died themselves, thus ending the Ordu Aspectu.
Conflicts also arose between the Jedi and the inhabitants of the world of Mandalore who had rapidly developed into a warlike culture in which strength was valued above all else. Their beliefs of continual warfare went contrary to the Jedi's mission of protecting the weak, they quickly mobilized to stop the destructive Mandalorians from expanding in the galaxy. The constant warfare was a strain and, as the Old Republic crumbled, the Mandalorian warriors sacked the Jedi Temple on Coruscant, an event during which Pre Vizsla's ancestors stole the Darksaber.
Prior to 1019 BBY, the galaxy entered an era known as the Dark Age. During this time the Jedi–Sith war occurred. Early on in the war, the Sith attacked and captured Coruscant and with it the Jedi Temple. Towards the end of the war the Jedi reclaimed the Republic capital and their temple during the liberation of Coruscant.
Even as the Old Republic collapsed, the Jedi emerged victorious from their wars with the Sith. In their constant thirst for power, the Sith had weakened themselves through infighting until only one Dark Lord of the Sith remained: Darth Bane. Setting out a new guiding principle for the Sith called the Rule of Two, Bane declared that there could be no more than two Sith in existence: a master and an apprentice, to prevent the infighting of the past from ever destroying the Sith again. Despite discovering his principles, when he was defeated, the Jedi believed that, with Bane dead, the Sith were extinct from the galaxy.
Qui-Gon Jinn was a human male Jedi Master who lived during the declining days of the Galactic Republic. The Coruscant-born Jedi was a controversial figure in his time, having long been a student of the Living Force who often bucked the Jedi Code and the decisions of the Jedi High Council in order to follow the will of the Force. According to his Padawan, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Jinn could have been a member of the High Council had he followed the Code, but he, like his own Jedi Master, Count Dooku, did not always put his faith in institutional wisdom. His studies of the Living Force helped him learn to unlock the secrets of eternal consciousness after death, giving him and the students he would later teach influence beyond death.
In 32 BBY, Jinn and Kenobi were sent by Supreme Chancellor Finis Valorum to negotiate a peaceful outcome to the Trade Federation' blockade of the planet Naboo. The Federation, in league with the shadowy Sith Lord Darth Sidious, targeted them for death and forced them onto the planet, where they rescued Queen Padmé Amidala and helped her find safe refuge on Tatooine. It was there that Jinn helped orchestrate the freedom of a young slave named Anakin Skywalker, a boy who was strong in the Force and who Jinn believed was the Chosen One who would destroy the Sith and bring balance to the Force. Once at the Jedi Temple on Coruscant, Jinn unsuccessfully lobbied for the Council to allow him to train Skywalker.
Jinn and Kenobi returned to Naboo, where they helped Queen Amidala liberate her people from the Federation. Jinn was killed in a lightsaber duel with Darth Maul, and with his dying breaths asked Kenobi to train Skywalker. His funeral was held shortly thereafter, but his studies of the Living Force allowed him to manifest his consciousness after death. During the Clone Wars, he revealed himself to Grand Master Yoda and sent Yoda on a journey so he too could learn the secrets of immortality. After the fall of the Jedi Order, Jinn guided Yoda and Kenobi in learning how to physically manifest their spirits, a feat he too was able to accomplish after first only being able to communicate as a disembodied voice. Through Jinn’s teachings, Kenobi and Yoda were able to guide Luke Skywalker even after death as he saved his father from the dark side of the Force, became a Jedi Knight, and sought to rebuild the Jedi Order.
Obi-Wan Kenobi, later known as Ben Kenobi during his exile, was a Force-sensitive human male Jedi Master who served the Galactic Republic. He was a mentor and close friend to both Anakin Skywalker and his son, Luke, training them in the ways of the Force. Born on the planet Stewjon, Kenobi became the Padawan learner of Jedi Master Qui-Gon Jinn. Kenobi then became the first Jedi in a millennium to defeat a Sith Lord when he defeated Darth Maul during the Battle of Naboo. During the battle, Jinn was mortally wounded by Maul, and perished in Kenobi's arms. At Jinn's behest, Kenobi took Anakin Skywalker to be his own Padawan, training him during the decade leading up to the Clone Wars.
During the Clone Wars, Skywalker was made a Jedi Knight while Kenobi (as a result of his military successes in the Outer Rim) was granted the title of Master and named to the Jedi Council. The two Jedi fought alongside each other as generals many times. In the last days of the Clone Wars, Skywalker turned to the dark side, betraying the Jedi. Skywalker's new Sith Master, Supreme Chancellor Palpatine, used Order 66 to destroy the Jedi Order, though Kenobi survived and reunited with another survivor, Grand Master Yoda. Kenobi confronted Skywalker, who had now taken the name Darth Vader, on Mustafar, and the two dueled. Kenobi emerged the victor, gravely wounding Vader and remorsefully leaving him for dead. However, as Palpatine established the Galactic Empire in place of the Galactic Republic, Vader was rehabilitated, though he was forced to rely on a cybernetic suit for life support. Kenobi went into exile on Tatooine, where he would watch over Vader's newborn son, Luke Skywalker, who he took to live with his aunt and uncle, Beru and Owen Lars. Seventeen years into his exile, he eventually confronted his old enemy Maul, who he again defeated in a brief duel. As the former Sith lay dying in Kenobi's arms, the two finally made peace, and Maul stated that Luke would avenge them both.
In 0 BBY, Kenobi received a message via R2-D2 from Leia Organa asking for help in the Rebel Alliance's fight against the Empire. The droid contained the plans to the Death Star, a battle station created by the Empire capable of destroying planets, and the plans needed to be taken to Bail Organa on Alderaan. After Luke Skywalker's aunt and uncle were killed by Imperial forces searching for the plans, Skywalker agreed to join Kenobi on this mission and be trained as a Jedi. The pair were taken to Alderaan by Han Solo, only for them to discover that the planet had been destroyed by the Death Star. Their ship, the Millennium Falcon, was captured by the Death Star's tractor beam, and Kenobi was confronted by Darth Vader. Vader and Kenobi dueled again, and Kenobi allowed Vader to kill him so that Luke and his companions could escape the Death Star. In the following years, as Luke continued fighting for the Rebel Alliance, Kenobi continued to give him guidance as a Force spirit, including directing Luke to the planet Dagobah, where Luke received training from one of Obi-Wan's Masters, Yoda
Luke Skywalker, a Force-sensitive human male, was a legendary Jedi Master who fought in the Galactic Civil War during the reign of the Galactic Empire. Along with his companions, Princess Leia Organa and Captain Han Solo, Skywalker served on the side of the Alliance to Restore the Republic—an organization committed to the downfall of Emperor Palpatine and the restoration of democracy. Following the war, Skywalker became a living legend, and was remembered as one of the greatest Jedi in galactic history.
The son of Jedi Knight Anakin Skywalker and Senator Padmé Amidala, Luke Skywalker was born along with his twin sister Leia in 19 BBY. As a result of Amidala's death and Anakin's fall to the dark side of the Force, the Skywalker children were separated and sent into hiding, with Leia adopted by the royal family of Alderaan while Luke was raised by his relatives on Tatooine. Longing for a life of adventure and purpose, Skywalker joined the Rebellion and began learning the ways of the Force under the guidance of Jedi Master Obi-Wan Kenobi, whose first apprentice was Luke's own father. During the Battle of Yavin in 0 BBY, Skywalker saved the Alliance from annihilation by destroying the Empire's planet-killing superweapon, the Death Star. He continued his training in the years that followed, determined to become a Jedi Knight like his father before him, and found a new mentor in Grand Master Yoda. After his master's death, Skywalker participated in the Battle of Endor in 4 ABY, during which he confronted the Sith Lord Darth Vader, whom he learned was in fact his father, Anakin Skywalker. With Luke's help, Anakin returned to the light side of the Force by destroying the Emperor at the cost of his own life, fulfilling his destiny as the Chosen One.
With the Sith's destruction and the subsequent capitulation of the Empire in 5 ABY, Luke Skywalker traveled across the galaxy, searching for knowledge that would aid him in rebuilding the Jedi Order. One of his apprentices was his sister's son, Ben Solo, who inherited the Skywalker bloodline's raw strength and potential for limitless power. The loss of his nephew, who fell to the dark side like Vader before him, haunted Skywalker for the rest of his life. In addition, the destruction of his nascent Order convinced him that the time had come for the Jedi to end. He therefore sought exile on the distant world of Ahch-To, having elected to live out his remaining days as a hermit while ignoring the galaxy's pleas for help during the rise of the First Order. His solitude was interrupted in 34 ABY, shortly after the fall of the New Republic, resulting in a chain of events that led Skywalker to play one last, momentous role in the conflict between light and darkness. Although he passed away into the Force, his legend would spread throughout the galaxy, rekindling a spark of hope in the enemies of the First Order. Before his death, Skywalker declared that the Jedi Order would not die with him, having trained a final apprentice: the Jakku scavenger known as Rey.
Mace Windu, a Force-sensitive human male, was a revered Jedi Master and member of the Jedi High Council during the last years of the Galactic Republic. During his time in the Jedi Order, he once served as elected leader of the Jedi and, during the Clone Wars, as a Jedi General in the Grand Army of the Republic. He was the greatest champion of the Jedi Order and promoted its ancient traditions amidst the growing influence of the dark side of the Force in the corrupt, declining days of the Republic.
When the Separatist Crisis spawned the birth of the Confederacy of Independent Systems and sparked the Clone Wars, Windu and the Jedi rallied to the defense of the Republic and became the leaders of the Grand Army of the Republic. Throughout the war, Windu served the Jedi and the Republic in various capacities—on the battlefield in command of the clone army, on Coruscant as an overseer of the war effort and an advisor to Supreme Chancellor Sheev Palpatine, and even as a diplomat to contested worlds, despite his disdain of politics. His exploits on the frontline served as a reminder of his reputation as a renowned Jedi warrior.
As the war drew to a close, Windu became increasingly suspicious of the chancellor's motives, as Palpatine had amassed near-dictatorial control over the Galactic Senate, and sensed the rising power of the dark side in the galaxy. His suspicions were confirmed when Anakin Skywalker, a Jedi Knight and the Chosen One of ancient prophecy, discovered that Palpatine was Darth Sidious, the Dark Lord of the Sith who manipulated the Republic and the Separatist Alliance into war. Windu, along with Jedi Masters Kit Fisto, Agen Kolar, and Saesee Tiin, confronted Palpatine with the intention of arresting him. Instead, the Dark Lord attacked them, striking them down one by one until only Windu was left. Windu bested Palpatine in the confrontation and—deciding the chancellor was too dangerous to be left alive due to his influence over the government—prepared to strike him down, but the intervention of Anakin Skywalker, who saved the chancellor's life, led to Windu's death. As a result, Skywalker fell to the temptation of the dark side and was renamed Darth Vader.
Windu's actions led Palpatine to brand the Jedi as traitors to the Republic. The chancellor executed Order 66, and clone troopers across the galaxy turned against and killed their Jedi leaders, marking the fall of the Jedi Order. Palpatine transformed the Republic into the Galactic Empire, and the Emperor's new regime promoted anti-Jedi sentiment across the galaxy. Through propaganda, the Empire portrayed Windu as the leader of a criminal gang of Jedi who caused the outbreak of the Clone Wars. In spite of the propaganda, some of Windu's actions were remembered with fondness; General Cham Syndulla, who served alongside Windu during the Battle of Ryloth, remembered Windu with great respect and told the tale of how Windu helped him liberate Ryloth during the war.
Ahsoka Tano, nicknamed "Snips" by her Master and known as "Ashla" after the Clone Wars, was a Jedi Padawan who, after the conflict, helped establish a network of various rebel cells against the Galactic Empire. A Togruta female, Tano was discovered on her homeworld of Shili by Jedi Master Plo Koon, who brought her to the Jedi Temple on Coruscant to receive Jedi training. Following the outbreak of the Clone Wars, Jedi Grand Master Yoda assigned the young Tano to be the Padawan learner of Jedi Knight Anakin Skywalker, whom she joined at the Battle of Christophsis. Whereas Tano was eager to prove herself, Skywalker had a reputation for recklessness, and they had a rather difficult start as Master and apprentice. Yet, they worked together to rescue Rotta, the son of crime lord Jabba Desilijic Tiure, and returned Rotta to his father, thus facilitating a crucial alliance between the Hutt Clan and the Galactic Republic.
As a commander in the Grand Army of the Republic, Tano found a mentor in Clone Captain Rex of the 501st Legion, with whom she and Skywalker collaborated to lead frontline campaigns against the Confederacy of Independent Systems. In her first command position at the Battle of Ryloth, Tano disobeyed orders and lost her entire squadron of pilots, but she managed to rebound and helped secure a victory at Ryloth. Her assignments pitted her against a variety of opponents, from General Grievous and Sith apprentice Asajj Ventress to bounty hunters such as Cad Bane and Aurra Sing. Over time, she matured into a respected leader, contributing to key Republic victories like the Second Battle of Geonosis and the Battle of Mon Cala. She even died during a series of events on Mortis, but the Force wielder known as the Daughter sacrificed herself to bring Tano back to life.
Tano gained much experience on and beyond the war front, leading a group of Jedi younglings to revolt against their Trandoshan captors, helping rescue a colony of Togruta from enslavement by the Zygerrian Slave Empire, and serving as an advisor to the Onderon rebels—with her close friend, Lux Bonteri, among them—as they liberated their world from the Confederacy. In a stark turn of events, Tano was framed for the bombing of the Jedi Temple hangar and other homicides, and she escaped into the Coruscant underworld to clear her name. Though she formed an unlikely alliance with Asajj Ventress, she was detained by Republic forces and was consequently barred from the Jedi Order. Ultimately, Skywalker uncovered the true culprit, Tano's friend and fellow Padawan Barriss Offee, and prevented his former apprentice from being convicted of sedition. Nevertheless, the ordeal dislodged Tano's faith in the Jedi. She refused the Jedi Council's offer to rejoin the Order, instead departing in search of a new path.
After the Galactic Empire came to power, Tano went into hiding on Thabeska and Raada. Following the evacuation of Raada, Tano joined Senator Bail Organa's growing rebel movement. She became the manager of his intelligence network and adopted the codename "Fulcrum." As Fulcrum, Tano provided intelligence to various rebel factions including Hera Syndulla's Spectres rebel cell. Tano took a particular interest in Syndulla's rebels because one of their members, a former Jedi named Kanan Jarrus, had begun to train his own Padawan, Ezra Bridger. In addition, Tano's efforts against the Empire brought her into contact with Skywalker, who by then had become the Dark Lord of the Sith Darth Vader, as well as the Imperial Inquisitors known as the Fifth Brother and the Seventh Sister. Following the mission to Malachor, Tano became lost to the rubble and shadows of the Sith temple and was believed by many including Jarrus and Bridger to have perished during a duel with Darth Vader.
However, Tano was unexpectedly saved from Vader's wrath by a future Ezra Bridger, who pulled her through a time portal into the world between worlds, a dimension of the Force connecting all time and space. After a confrontation with Darth Sidious, who desired access to the dimension, Tano returned to her time, promising Bridger that she would find him once she returned. After the end of the Galactic Civil War, Tano returned to a freed Lothal and joined Sabine Wren in her quest to find a missing Bridger, who had disappeared during the liberation of Lothal.
Yoda, a Force-sensitive male member of a mysterious species, was a legendary Jedi Master who witnessed the rise and fall of the Galactic Republic, as well as the rise of the Galactic Empire. An ancient Jedi revered for his advanced age and wisdom, Yoda served as Grand Master of the Jedi Order during the latter days of the Republic and also held a seat on the Jedi High Council along with other legendary masters such as Mace Windu and Ki-Adi-Mundi. For over eight-hundred years, he mentored others in the ways of the Force and had a hand in the training of many Jedi during their time as younglings.
Approximately thirty-two years before the Battle of Yavin, Anakin Skywalker was presented as the Chosen One to the High Council by Jedi Master Qui-Gon Jinn. Although the former slave from Tatooine demonstrated exceptional sensitivity to the Force, Yoda and his colleagues declined to train him due to the fear they sensed within him. The High Council later reversed its decision in the wake of Jinn's death despite the dissenting opinion of Yoda, who sensed that Skywalker represented grave danger to the future of the Jedi Order. Over the next decade, the galaxy became increasingly destabilized by a secessionist movement that threatened to tear the Republic asunder. When it became evident that the Confederacy of Independent Systems intended to secede from the Republic by force of arms, Yoda oversaw the deployment of thousands of clone troopers to Geonosis, where the first battle of the Clone Wars commenced.
As a Jedi General of the Grand Army of the Republic, Yoda's time was spent directing the Jedi in their new role as wartime leaders, negotiating with potential allies such as King Katuunko of Toydaria, and leading clones on the battlefield against the Separatist Droid Army. By the third year of the galactic conflict, the Jedi discovered that Darth Sidious and Supreme Chancellor Sheev Palpatine were one and the same. Yoda's colleagues on the High Council moved to arrest the Sith Lord, but Skywalker's betrayal thwarted their efforts and led to the start of the Jedi Purge through Order 66. Across the galaxy, the Jedi Knights and their apprentices fell victim to the secret kill order that the clones had been programmed to obey. Yoda survived the attempt on his life, however, but later fled into exile after failing to kill the self-appointed Galactic Emperor.
The Grand Master spent the last two decades of his life on the planet Dagobah, where he was found by Anakin's son, Luke Skywalker, who endeavored to complete his training in the Jedi arts. On his deathbed, Yoda confirmed that Luke's father had become Darth Vader—the Emperor's apprentice in the dark side of the Force. After a lifespan of nine-hundred years, Yoda succumbed to death, shedding his mortal coil and becoming one with the Force. Shortly afterward, the prophecy of the Chosen One was realized when Vader killed his Sith Master at the cost of his own life in order to save his son. This act of self-sacrifice allowed the late Yoda to preserve the Anakin's consciousness in the Force. As the Rebel Alliance celebrated their victory over the Empire, Luke saw the spirits of his mentors, Yoda and Obi-Wan Kenobi, standing beside a redeemed Anakin Skywalker as they watched over him and his friends.
Yoda would again visit the realm of the living from the Netherworld of the Force roughly thirty years after the Battle of Endor. By then, Jedi Master Luke Skywalker was a broken man who lived as a hermit on Ahch-To. It had been Yoda's dying wish to see Skywalker restore the Jedi Order by passing on what he had learned to a new generation of Jedi Knights. Skywalker made the attempt, but the fall of his gifted nephew, Ben Solo, all but destroyed his plans, leading him to believe that it was time for the Jedi to end. With Yoda's help, Skywalker overcame his guilt and subsequently became one with the Force, passing the mantle of the Jedi to the Jakku scavenger Rey.
