Jedi Tenets

Here can be read a number of miscellaneous tenets which are not mentioned in the Code, but should be known for all Jedi.

  • The Jedi are the guardians of civilization, yet do not allow civilization to destroy needlessly.
  • A Jedi uses the Force for knowledge and defense, never for aggression or personal gain.
  • The lightsaber is the symbol of the members of the Jedi Order.
  • If a Jedi ignites his lightsaber, he must be ready to take a life.
  • Jedi do not marry.

“A Jedi is a Jedi, first and foremost, and only. For a Jedi to divide his attention between the will of the Force and the will of others is to invite disaster.”
―Hoche Trit
