For over a thousand generations the Jedi Knights were the guardians of peace and justice in the Old Republic…
The Jedi have inspired our imaginations for decades now, from the early days of Luke, Obi-Wan and Yoda, through the Prequel adventures where we saw the Jedi Order in their prime, and on into the excellent Clone Wars animated series and beyond. And now, of course, we have an entirely new chapter in the history of the Jedi with the arrival of a new trilogy starting with The Force Awakens.
In tribute to these iconic figures, we’ve retrieved from the holocrons of the Jedi Archives a complete list of every Jedi ever. From Qui-Gon Jinn and Mace Windu to Plo Koon and Yaddle (!), and all the way through to Ezra Bridger and Luke Skywalker, this timeline collects all the canon Jedi created for the movies, TV shows, books, stories and comics. (But please note, these are canon Jedi only. Lucasfilm no longer considers the Expanded Universe to be an “official” part of the Star Wars saga.)

Watch the video above for the full experience, or read on if you prefer. And of course… may the Force be with you!

Full spoilers follow for Star Wars: The Force Awakens...

The Phantom Menace

While the Jedi were created by George Lucas in the early 1970s when he was writing the first film, Star Wars: A New Hope, the first canon appearance of the mystical order came in 1999’s The Phantom Menace when the Jedi Master Qui-Gon Jinn and his apprentice Obi-Wan Kenobi took the screen.Lucas is said to have gotten the name "Jedi" from the term jidaigeki, or Japanese period dramas. Star Wars was famously inspired by samurai films, and the connection between the Jedi and the samurai is obvious.

Soon Qui-Gon and Obi-Wan were joined by young Anakin Skywalker, who would grow to adulthood over the span of the three Prequel films and of course ultimately become the villain Darth Vader, Dark Lord of the Sith -- the evil and ancient enemies of the Jedi.

  • Rank: Jedi Knight
  • Holocron bio: The boy immaculately conceived via midi-chlorians who grew up to become a great Jedi, only to be seduced by the Dark Side, assist in the decimation of the Order, and become the hated Sith Lord Darth Vader.
Many other Jedi were introduced in that film, including a background extra who would later be retconned into an undercover Jedi known as Quinlan Vos.

The leaders of the Order, the Jedi Council, also debuted in Phantom Menace, where the wise and beloved Original Trilogy character Yoda served as Grand Master. Mace Windu was the next highest-ranking member of the Council, and had a rare purple lightsaber to show for it. A variety of strange and exotic Jedi sat on the Council of 12, including the Cerean Ki-Adi-Mundi, and Plo Koon, who required a special mask and eye filters in order to breathe an oxygen atmosphere.

Every Jedi Ever - IGN (4)Quinlan Vos

  • Species: Human/Kiffar
  • Trained by: Tholme
  • Rank: Jedi Master

  • Rank: Jedi Master
  • Holocron bio: Plo Koon first discovered the Force-sensitive child Ahsoka Tano, who would eventually become Anakin Skywalker’s Padawan. This Council member required a mask when in oxygen atmospheres due to his Kel Dor physiology.
Seeing these many new faces was a far cry from the original three films, where the Jedi were all but extinct. Now Lucas could give us a female Yoda in Yaddle, or more mysterious characters whose physical appearance only hinted at their lives as Jedi Knights and Masters.

Still, these truly alien members of the council -- like the serpentine Oppo Rancisis, or the beautiful Adi Gallia -- would not have much to do in Episode I. Their stories would eventually be fleshed out in the Expanded Universe line of books, comics and other media, although the EU is no longer considered to be canon. Even so, many of them would eventually get more action on the Clone Wars animated series, which is still part of the official Star Wars story. And several of these Jedi would finally get to brandish their lightsabers in the next film, Attack of the Clones.

Attack of the Clones

Taking place a decade after the previous film, Episode II introduced several new Jedi who would become recurring players for years to come. This included the aquatic Kit Fisto and the master/Padawan duo of Luminara Unduli and Barriss Offee. In The Clone Wars series, Offee would eventually lose faith in the Jedi ways and betray her brothers and sisters in the Order, going so far as to arrange for the Jedi Temple to be bombed.

Some new Council members debuted in Attack of the Clones as well, including Shaak Ti and Coleman Trebor. Many of these Jedi would go on to become generals when the Clone Wars broke out at the end of this film.

Not all Jedi were fighters, however. Jocasta Nu was the chief librarian of the Jedi Archives. And the Temple was home to Younglings and Padawans as well, such as Zett Jukassa -- who, by the way, was played by George Lucas’ son Jett. Here we also learned that Yoda would teach entire classes of Younglings in the ways of the Force -- and the art of the lightsaber.

Sifo-Dyas was an intriguing addition to the Jedi in that he was dead by the time he was first mentioned in Episode II. But his actions had a long-standing impact on that galaxy far, far away, as it was he who commissioned the creation of the Clone Army. The animated series would later reveal that it was the fallen Jedi Master Count Dooku who had Dyas killed.

Other Jedi introduced in Attack of the Clones included Pablo-Jill and Bultar Swan -- who were never seen again in canon. The Zabrak, Agen Kolar, only appeared officially in three stories, and would meet his end… at the end of Darth Sidious’ lightsaber in Revenge of the Sith.

Stass Allie, a cousin of Adi Gallia, made her first appearance during the Battle of Geonosis in Episode II. As did some 200 other Jedi who have gone mostly unnamed since the film was released. Scores of these Jedi were killed during the battle, providing the first onscreen evidence that the Jedi weren’t quite as invincible as the Original Trilogy of films might have led some to believe.

Most of these Jedi Knights were never given official canon names, but the few who did follow: Nicanas Tassu, Sephjet Josall, Sar Labooda, Sarissa Jeng, Ekim Ryelli, Lumas Etima, Tan Yuster, Fi-Ek Sirch, Que-Mars Redath-Gom, Ichi-Tan Micoda, Roan Shryne, Joclad Danva, Roth-Del Masona, Tarados Gon, Sora Bulq, Khaat Qiyn and Bairdon Jace

The Clone Wars

Chronologically, the Clone Wars animated show kicks in at this point. Ahsoka Tano would prove to be a very important and popular character as the Padawan to Anakin Skywalker. And Asajj Ventress would be equally memorable as a former Jedi-learner who turned to the Dark Side.

Every Jedi Ever - IGN (17)Ahsoka Tano

  • Species: Togruta
  • Trained by: Anakin Skywalker
  • Rank: Padawan
  • Holocron bio: Anakin Skywalker’s Padawan during the Clone Wars, Ahsoka Tano left the Order after being wrongly accused of the bombing of the Jedi Temple. Years later, she would become a key player in the rebellion against the Empire.

  • Trained by: Ky Narec
  • Rank: Padawan
  • Holocron bio: At a young age, Asajj Ventress was freed from slavery and trained in the ways of the Force by the Jedi Ky Narec. Unfortunately, when he was killed, Ventress turned to the Dark Side and Count Dooku. However, eventually she redeemed herself, and her lover Quinlan Vos, in an act of sacrifice that took her life.
Many of the Jedi from the Prequels would get substantial development on the show, while new members of the order, like Master Ima-Gun Di, would continue to be introduced. Nahdar Vebb, from the same race as Admiral Ackbar, had just graduated to full Knighthood when he was killed by General Grievous. Some of these Jedi made inauspicious debuts, like Bolla Ropal, who was tortured to death, and Ord Enisence, who was only seen as a corpse. Alas, things would get worse for the Jedi soon enough.

The show also gave us Force Babies -- young ones who were sensitive to that all-important energy field and thus fell under the Jedi gaze at a young age. So cute!

The many races of the Star Wars universe were well represented in the Clone Wars, like the Roonan, Halsey, and the Nautolan, Knox. Eekar Oki hailed from the same Mon Calamari race as Admiral Ackbar and Nahdar Vebb. There were also tentacle-headed Twi'leks and reptilian Nikto, like Finn Ertay and her unnamed Jedi comrade, who were killed by the cyborg Darth Maul and his brother, Savage Opress. Tera Sinube was a Cosian Jedi Master who once again proved that not all Jedi are solely diplomats, warriors and swordsman. He excelled as a crime-solving investigator!

Younglings received the focus at times on Clone Wars, as in the Season 5 four-part story which focused on Ahsoka's mission to escort a group of kids to the Crystal Caves of Ilum. It was there that they would find the stones required to build their own lightsabers.

In the episode "Nightsisters," we would learn that Ky Narec was Asajj Ventress's Master before he died -- an incident which in part turned her towards the Dark Side.

Pong Krell had four arms, which allowed him to use two double-bladed lightsabers simultaneously. Nice! Unfortunately, he too turned to the Dark Side when he saw foresaw the end of the Jedi Order.

(Video) The Star Wars Saga in 7 Minutes

As the Clone Wars -- both the show and the fictional war itself -- headed inexorably towards its end, tragedy struck when the Jedi Temple was bombed. This was the incident ordered by the traitor Barriss Offee, and six members of the Jedi were killed in the explosion. Unfortunately, this was only a precursor to the fate the rest of the Jedi Temple residents would soon face with Order 66.

While Ahsoka Tano was accused of and tried for the bombing, her name was eventually cleared. Still, she left the Jedi following these events, having lost faith in the Order.
Background Jedi Temple Residents
  • Holocron bio: A handful of background Jedi can be seen in Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith, although little is known about these characters.
Cin Drallig and his guards protected the Temple. In time, Drallig would be slaughtered in the Jedi Purge by Anakin Skywalker after he turned to the Dark Side.

The Mikkian twin sisters Tiplar and Tiplee both met unfortunate ends before the war was even over. Tiplar was killed by one of her own Clone Troopers when his Order 66 programming was activated prematurely. And Tiplee was cut down by Count Dooku himself.

Rig Nema was a Jedi doctor who tended to none other than Yoda at one time. The last jedi revealed in the Clone Wars series was Master Tu-Anh, who was seen as a corpse in an unfinished -- but canon -- episode of the show, when Obi-Wan and Anakin were sent to investigate her murder.

  • Rank: Jedi Master
  • Holocron bio: This Jedi was killed on the Outer Rim world of Utapau. Obi-Wan described her as something of a maverick who would often disappear for long periods to conduct rogue investigations without the input of the Council.


In 2014, Lucasfilm announced that its Expanded Universe stories were no longer considered canon. Several new official canon books, short stories and comics have been released since then, however, revealing a handful of new Jedi. For the most part, these Jedi have only gotten a passing mention or reference, and we don’t even know what most of them look like.

Revenge of the Sith

Revenge of the Sith featured surprisingly few new Jedi, considering the film depicted the decimation of the Order. Still, a group of Younglings were shown moments before their murder. This included poor Sors Bandeam, who would pay the price for his misplaced faith in Master Skywalker. The Padawans Whie and Bene were also killed by Anakin -- who had by now become Darth Vader -- during his attack on the Jedi Temple that fateful night.

Every Jedi Ever - IGN (29)Episode III Younglings

  • Holocron bio: A new batch of Jedi Younglings was seen in Revenge of the Sith. Unfortunately, moments later they would be slaughtered (offscreen) by Anakin Skywalker, who by now had fallen to the Dark Side.

  • Holocron bio: These Padawans were also killed by Anakin Skywalker in the Jedi Temple at the same time that he murdered Cin Drallig. Obi-Wan later watched a holo-recording of the incident.


Of course, some Jedi did survive in the dark years of the Empire’s reign. The animated series Star Wars: Rebels features Kanan Jarrus. He was a Padawan when his Master Depa Billaba sacrificed herself to save him during Order 66. In order to stay hidden, he suppressed his true identity and Jedi nature in the years that followed. But eventually he met the Force-sensitive boy Ezra Bridger, who he took on as his own Padawan.

  • Rank: Padawan (at the time of Order 66)
  • Holocron bio: This Padawan learner was able to escape Order 66 and go into hiding. Changing his name to Kanan Jarrus, he eventually met young Ezra Bridger, who he took on as his own student in the ways of the Force.

  • Weapons: Hybrid Lightsaber/Blaster, Energy Slingshot
  • Rank: Padawan
  • Holocron bio: Ezra Bridger was an orphan from the planet Lothal whose life changed when he met the crew of the Ghost and joined their crusade against the Empire. At this time, he also began to learn the ways of the Jedi under Kanan Jarrus.

A New Hope

What happened to Kanan and Ezra by the time of the Original Trilogy of films is unclear. It would be Luke Skywalker who would take center stage at that time, as the heir to the Jedi ways, the savior of the Rebel Alliance, and the only one who could redeem his father Anakin, thus bringing the balance to the Force that had been long prophesized according to legend.

Every Jedi Ever - IGN (31)Luke Skywalker

  • Species: Human
  • Trained by: Obi-Wan Kenobi, Yoda
  • Rank: Jedi Knight
  • Holocron bio: The farm boy from Tatooine who inherited his father’s Force sensitivity, Luke Skywalker grew up ignorant of his true origins until he met Obi-Wan Kenobi. The aged Jedi introduced Luke to the Force, and in time Skywalker would become a great Jedi himself, a hero of the Rebel Alliance, and the only person who could help Anakin Skywalker find redemption.

The Force Awakens, Expanded Universe and Beyond

With the arrival of The Force Awakens, we now know that Kylo Ren -- a.k.a. Ben Solo -- once trained under Luke, as did a group of other Force-sensitive individuals. Ren turned to the Dark Side and Luke disappeared, seemingly dispelling the promise of a new Jedi Order.

Ben Solo/Luke's Padawans

  • Names: Ben Solo (a.k.a. Kylo Ren)/Unknown Dead Padawans
  • Holocron bio: Luke Skywalker trained his nephew Ben Solo and a “new generation” of Force-sensitives in the ways of the Jedi until Ben turned to the Dark Side. Under the influence of Supreme Leader Snoke, Solo took the name Kylo Ren and betrayed his uncle and fellow Padawans.
