Jedi Knight


The Jedi is a paradox in itself. On one hand, their entire lives are devoted to combat and battle. On the other hand, their entire purpose is to promote peace in the galaxy. In other words, they promote peace through their lightsaber. If someone is getting in the way of peace, a Jedi will try and negotiate; however, if they become a threat, they will just as easily pull their lightsaber and do battle. They spend their lives devoted to learning the Force and their weapon, but when a threat comes to the Republic, they are the valiant Knight fighting off the foes.

Their armament is typical for a Jedi: a simple looking lightsaber. Known for blue lightsabers like Obi-Wan-Kenobi, the Jedi Knight likes simple; however, is not adverse to putting on entire suits of armor to protect their bodies when doing battle against a formidable foe. Having trained from a young age, the Jedi Knight can rely on the force to add a mixture of incredible lightsaber maneuvers as well as force pushes and holds. The Jedi Knight is a pivotal part of a battle because he can defend allies and attack foes that are doing too much damage. A very epic character to play as.
