Jedi Ranks Finally Fully Explained

  • Published: 29 September 2019
  • Everyone knows what a Jedi is — but who's in charge of the Jedi Order? And what happens to trainees who don't pass their tests? If you're wondering about the hierarchy of the galaxy's guardians of justice and peace, here's your guide.

    The lowest rank in the Jedi hierarchy are Jedi Younglings, also known as initiates.

    According to the book Jedi vs. Sith: The Essential Guide to the Force, younglings are children sensitive to the Force who were gathered from across the galaxy as infants to be trained as future Jedi.

    The Jedi Path: A Manual for Students of the Force explains that at one time, young adults and adolescents were recruited as Jedi Younglings, but the Order found that these older recruits were already exposed to negative emotions that could push them to the dark side. As a result, the Jedi began recruiting children who were younger, and more innocent.

    Younglings don't train with mentors one-on-one. Instead, they're separated into small groups called clans, and train together within those clans.

    Once younglings learn their basics, they must take a series of tests known as the Initiate Trials, which have included such tasks as building a lightsaber. Though the Initiate Trials have changed over time, their ultimate goal is to determine students' knowledge of the Jedi Code and ability to conquer the Dark Side.

    Yoda was an inept grand master. He lacked wisdom and played into the hands of the sith. Under his leadership the jedi all but vanished and the most promising jedi turned to the dark side. In short he did not deserve the title.

                                        As soon as it got to "battlemasters" I'm thinking that these aren't the Jedi I grew up knowing about, where Yoda would downplay the use of weapons as the force was greater. Of course then we had ObiWan tell Anakin that "This weapon is your life!" in the prequels when referring to his lightsaber.

Much people forget this, while Anakin is also space Jesus, it should be noted that he had to hone his skills before he became a powerful Jedi. Rey on the other hand well.... she's just mary sue and only for a political agenda.
