The Jedi are a religious organization that features in Star Wars.
The Jedi were an ancient organisation that consisted of users of the Force and dedicated to the principles of its Light Side.
At the onset of the Clone Wars, many senior Jedi began to serve in the Republic's military as Generals where they commanded regiments of Clone Troopers.
An honoured and ancient tradition among the Jedi Order was the role of the Jedi Temple Guard. These masked sentinels were chosen from the ranks of the Jedi as part of a knight's commitment to the Order and reported to the head of security. They wore formal robes and masks that concealed their identity with this being the ultimate expression of the emotional detachment that was required in service to a higher calling. Temple Guards carried imposing lightsabre pikes with these being thick double-bladed weapons which produced a distinctive rare yellow blade.
It was known that the Jedi sometimes created their own temples over those of the Sith with this as an act of purification.
