Luke Skywalker is a gray Jedi

Gray Jedi, do they have their own name?

It can be difficult to pinpoint "gray" Jedi in the current canon, as reality is more about "gray" force users in terms of what George Lucas is between a Jedi and a Sith (or the light and a dark side ) has set up. in the preview of the original trilogy, which he then began to deny in the prequels.

But since Disney's acquisition it is currently in comics ( Doctor Aphra , Darth Vader 2017+ ), Books, TV series ( Star Wars Rebels) and in the narrative of the Sequel Trilogy ( The Last Jedi ) further developed in order to better examine the notions of philosophy, applied methodology and purpose / aim of this philosophy, especially in relation to the perspective of the Jedi ...

A few examples of gray Jedi:

OBI-WAN: Do not defy the advice, master, not again!

QUI-GON JINN: I'll do what I have to, Obi-WanQ

Qui-Gon Jinn became in The Phantom Menace presented and presented, had philosophical problems with the mainstream Jedi of the Republic era in relation to their hierarchical practices with the Jedi Council, what one might argue was fueled by a loyalty to the Republic itself, as this was one of several factors that led to her fall along with Qui-gon, who puts Anakin Skywalker in the Jedi Order preview. In Episode I, Yoda is the one who initially denies Anakin's training after Qui-Gon gets her approval, despite stating that he will do so without if he has to. At the end of the film, Yoda changes his mind. During the second episode, Yoda, whose melody is very different, tells a dubious Obi-Wan that sometimes the older, more experienced Jedi forget themselves, whereupon the boys find the solution to Obi-Wan's lost star / planet.

It should also be noted that Qui-Gon's former master left the Jedi Order to become "Count Dukoo" and eventually a Sith apprentice to Darth Tyrannis. This is important as it represents a transition between darkness and light, reflects Anakin's own twist, and presents "Byronic Heroes".

Another that happened recently during the comic book crossover event by Doctor Aphra and Starwars Introduced in Canon: The Screaming Citadel , is an offshoot sect of the Jedi called Ordu Aspectu.

Ordu Aspectu:

According to one report, the Ordu Aspectu, supported by the father of the archaeologist Aphra, was a violent Jedi sect who selflessly wanted to prolong life for everyone . When the Orthodox Jedi raided their fortress, the Ordu Aspectu had to activate a device that apparently made them disappear and perhaps rose to a higher form of existence. According to the younger Aphra, another version of likely events was that the Ordu Aspectu abducted Jedi Padawan learners who they ruthlessly sacrificed in order to attain the immortality they sought. Aphra also stated that the Ordu Aspectu may not have existed at all and the term could have simply been a dispute between Jedi grammarians in recent years .

Doctor Aphra gives Luke two accounts of Ordu Aspectus practices, their fathers, that the Jedi describe as extremely "puristic" compared to the mainstream Jedi, but another interpretation suggests that they were closer to Sith by being willing to Sacrificing Jedi Padawans in an attempt to achieve immortality, but Aphra also comments that they may not have existed at all and that there are some arguments in the historical account the Jedi once were of ...

The comic also subtly shows a case where these Jedi may have been a bit of a false Jedi because of Rhur's ability to immortalize himself through the use of some sort of holographic projecting crystal like a fake Power spirit works, which can lead to a new mythology and philosophy exhibited in The Last Jedi ...

The Saga Force Narrative & The Sequel Trilogy

KYLO REN: The past has to die, kill it if you have to.

LUKE SKYWALKER: I only know one truth: it's time for the Jedi to end.

In front The Force Awakens Kylo Ren and Supreme Leader Snoke were found to not consider themselves Sith, but currently viewers do not understand Snoke's philosophy outside of Snoke who believes in the power of the Skywalker bloodline ( Aftermath Trilogy, The Last) Jedi ) and Kylo Ren believe he has to finish what Darth Vader started ( but what is it exactly? ). Let alone where the Knights of Ren are.

In the course of The Last Jedi will Viewers realized that one reason Ben Solo became Kylo Ren and joined Snoke was because of Luke's fears of Ben's darkness when he almost made a try in his life. Still, he catches himself. Kylo sees him doing it when Ben turns around and kills the rest of the apprentices at Luke's school. Both actions recall Anakin's betrayal and fall to the dark side ( Attack of the Clones, Revenge of the Sith ). Luke then vows never to teach again ...

SNOKE: The darkness rises and the light to meet them.

It is in these moments that we are the "gray" lines not only in the struggle of the light and dark oneself, but also see that the struggle, on the Jedi side of it is that Luke didn't seem to have developed the Jedi philosophy From Yoda's Time to Adopt is a major cause of his failure with Ben Solo (but there are other factors too, like Snoke's influence on Liea's body, which leads to a new, more official reveal of Sidious's creation of Anakin goes along).

Luke Skywalker: I won't be the last Jedi

Much evidence of some kind of evolution or revolution as a result of this story is Rey: a character who plays the role of savior. Not only is she able to get Luke to train her, but also to remind him of the better self he used to be, causing him to sacrifice himself for the future of his family and friends (Leia, The Resistance ). This is then aided by Luke's ability to project himself and interact with living beings (his sister). Yoda's power spirit evolves to interact more directly with his surroundings. The Jedi text mysteriously appears on the Millennium Falcon and is legendary for Luke's sacrifice sparking "a new hope" in the galaxy.

In any case, the ending of the saga story seems to be hit by some kind of power cycle cosmology story where the Jedi's point of view on The Force needs to evolve and possibly get "grayer" to keep up the light side. so to speak, in contrast, there are already gray Jedi as an organized group (or Sith, something like the Bendu).


Defying the advice doesn't make Qui-Gon a 'gray Jedi', it makes him a pain in the ass.

Darth Locke

same distinction IMO;)

Darth Locke

In all seriousness the term "gray" was not very well defined in the Q, but assuming it was legendary material or ideas within the current canon, I have done my best to avoid instances (characters or groups) outside of " Mainstream ". The Jedi Order is "gray" and also provides a glimpse into the idea that the current story is about creating a grayer sect of [organized] Jedi that fits the definition of the legend and / or that combat and the transitions between them are also where the gray is ...
