The Jedi Order was an ancient, monastic peacekeeping organization, unified by its belief in and observance of the Force, specifically the light side. Before the rise of the Empire, the Jedi served the Galactic Republic as guardians of peace and justice for more than a thousand years. While well known as diplomats, the Jedi carried lightsabers, the symbol and weapon of choice of the Order. Led by the Jedi High Council, Jedi Masters would instruct young Padawans in the ways of the Force and the Jedi Code, training them until they had achieved full status as Jedi Knights. Although the Last 20 years or more of war against the Sith have left the Jedi's number's deplenished, they have started to replenish their numbers with new force sensitives. There are also many who have left the Order who have begun to return in hopes of rebuilding the Order into the once great symbol that it was before the sith wars.
