|~ Star Wars: The Old Republic, Jedi Consular opening crawl|
The Consular's powers go far beyond meditation and mediation, and nothing illustrates this as vividly as their graceful movements in battle. Whether beset by an army of assassin droids or caught in the middle of soured negotiations, the Jedi Consular fights with an open conduit for the Force; manipulating massive forces to disable or even destroy their enemies.
- The dual-bladed Lightsaber preferred by many Consulars requires a skilled approach to dueling. Wielding this weapon, Jedi Consulars will draw upon the Force to sense their opponents’ locations and strike them all down with precision.
- The Jedi Consular doesn't just detect disturbances in the Force—sometimes they create them. This powerful ability allows the Consular to project a wall of pure Force energy into their opponents.
- The Jedi Consular has a preternatural understanding of how the Force connects all things, and they draw on this knowledge to toss enemies of all sizes into the air, before hurling them to the ground.

History[edit | edit source]
Visionary, Ambassador, Seeker of Jedi Wisdom[edit | edit source]
For more than 20,000 years, the Jedi Order has worked to promote peace and balance in the Galactic Republic, but each new day brings with it a new threat, promising to rip the Jedi and the entire galaxy apart. If the Republic is to survive, it needs leaders and visionaries; it needs the Jedi Consular.
Jedi Consulars channel the power of the Force for strength in combat and wisdom in diplomacy. Years of arduous training and meditation have sharpened Consulars’ minds to cut to the truth as cleanly as their Lightsabers cut through their foes. Whether unlocking long forgotten mysteries of the Jedi, raising armies to fight for the Republic or engaging in mortal combat with Dark Lords of the Sith, the Consulars' deep attunement to the Force gives them all the power they need to rise to the occasion with poise and balance.
Intimate attunement with the deepest Force mysteries gives Jedi Consulars the insight and empathy to deftly handle charged conflicts that confound even the most cunning Senators and governors—but Consulars know when it's time to talk and when it's time to fight. When negotiations turn aggressive, Consulars demonstrate their gifts of foresight—anticipating and deflecting enemy attacks with fluid strikes from their dual-bladed Lightsaber.
There is power in wisdom, study, and diplomacy. The Jedi Consular wields that power with an even hand. Consulars study the mysteries of the Force. They use their knowledge to bring peace, but when words fail, their understanding of the Force makes them dangerous foes.
Facing the Darkness Within[edit | edit source]
Jedi Consulars always seek to grow their knowledge of the galaxy, in understanding of themselves, and in comprehension of the Force that binds it all together. The commitment to this pursuit gives Consulars an unrivaled capacity for clarity in situations otherwise shrouded in darkness. However, this same dedication can also prove to be extremely perilous—inviting Consulars to explore paths that are better left untraveled. Some of the Jedi Order’s greatest minds have been seduced to the dark side through purely academic inquiries. The Consular knows the pain of this temptation as a battle-hardened warrior knows the throbbing of an old wound.
Before they can dispel the darkness in the galaxy, Jedi Consulars know they must first come to terms with the darkness within. There’s no avoiding the temptation to take shortcuts or even to use their knowledge for personal power; Consulars must constantly check their own motives. When tempted to step onto the path leading to darkness, Consulars must remember the tormented fate of the Jedi who have passed that way before. This is the only way they can unite the Jedi Order and the Republic and rally the troops to rescue the galaxy from the menacing darkness.
Field Recon[edit | edit source]
In a more peaceful age, Jedi Consulars may have humbly dedicated their lives to service as keepers of Jedi lore or as ambassadors in service to the Republic—tasks for which Consulars are uniquely qualified. However, as the shadow of the Empire has spread further across the galaxy, Consulars have stepped up to face the darkness on the front lines of battle as often as they’ve faced it when exploring the mysteries of the Force.
Outfitting[edit | edit source]
Preferring to stay as nimble on the battlefield as they are in negotiations, Jedi Consulars avoid the heavy battle armor worn by many Jedi Knights, Dense polymers and Cortosis armors would weigh them down; light cloaks and ornamented robes suit their strengths better, and the efforts they most often find themselves engaged in. No matter where they go, however, Consulars are never without the Lightsaber that marks their initiation into the Jedi Order.
Story[edit | edit source]
Prologue: Emissary Of The Rift Alliance[edit | edit source]
In a time of great turmoil across the galaxy, a gifted Padawan travels to the Jedi’s ancient homeworld of Tython to complete the final trials and become a fully fledged Jedi. Under the tutelage of Master Yuon Par, an unorthodox but experienced teacher and historian, a sinister plot is uncovered that could bring about the destruction of the Jedi Order.
Embodying the true skill and dedication, the Padawan confronts the spirit of an ancient Jedi known as Rajivari, and defeats a vengeful young man who had pledged himself to learning Rajivari’s secrets. Impressed by these exceptional achievements, the Jedi Council promotes Yuon’s Padawan to full membership in the Order as its newest Consular. However, this powerful Jedi’s adventures are only just beginning…
Chapter One: The Plague of Lord Vivicar[edit | edit source]
As the Consular ascends to the rank of full Jedi, several of the galaxy’s most talented Jedi Masters are suddenly stricken with a mysterious illness. This plague cripples its victims with paranoia and madness, driving them towards the dark side of the Force. Master Yuon Par is one of the first to suffer the strange plague’s effects, leaving her determined former student to seek out an ancient shielding technique, which may be Yuon’s only hope. The technique is a success and Yuon is saved from the plague’s worst effects. The Consular – now the only Jedi in the galaxy who knows the secrets of this shielding technique – sets out on a dangerous adventure to seek out others afflicted by the plague and determine its cause.
After a long and difficult search, the Consular discovers that the plague was created long ago, by an ancient Sith who possesses terrifying power. The identity of the man responsible for the plague’s reemergence is also revealed: a Sith Lord known as Vivicar. A corrupted former Jedi, Vivicar sought revenge against the Jedi who had left him for dead during a mission to the corrupted world of Malachor III. Vivicar unleashed the plague upon these Jedi, which forced them to relive that fateful mission.
Boarding Vivicar’s flagship, the Consular challenges and defeats Vivicar, only to discover that Vivicar is possessed by the spirit of the plague’s original creator, the ancient Sith Lord Terrak Morrhage. The Consular faces a near-impossible choice: risk attempting to redeem Vivicar and restore every Jedi afflicted with his plague, or cut Vivicar down, which would kill every plague-stricken Jedi, but would also destroy the plague and its evil, forever.
Chapter Two: The Rift Alliance[edit | edit source]
Having demonstrated exceptional wisdom and skill, the Consular is granted the rank of Master just in time for a new and challenging assignment. With many Republic member-worlds losing faith that the Empire can be defeated, ad group of indispensable planets, including Balmorra, Saleucami, Manaan, Aeten II, and Erigorm, have bonded together to form the Rift Alliance, a group of worlds nearing outright rebellion. The newly promoted Jedi Consular is charged by the Supreme Chancellor himself with the task of aiding these worlds and re-forging their shattered trust in the Republic.
Traveling across the galaxy, the Consular works with Rift Alliance representatives to protect their worlds and win their trust. But a sudden betrayal by a member of the Alliance reveals that the Republic and the Jedi Order have both been infiltrated by an unknown number of spies known as the Children of the Emperor. Manipulated by the Emperor’s power, these spies are ignorant of the evil lurking inside them. Not even the Jedi can sense their corruption. But with a full-scale war erupting across the galaxy, the Children are about to “awaken” and strike where the Republic is most vulnerable.
Chapter Three: Children of the Emperor[edit | edit source]
Faced with undetectable infiltrators and a full-scale Imperial onslaught, the Consular and the Rift Alliance work together to recruit new Republic allies. The Consular rallies an army of powerful allies on the distant worlds of Voss and Belsavis and leads their charge to the embattled world of Corellia. There, the Children of the Emperor have fully awakened and spread chaos in the Republic ranks. Perhaps worst of all, the Childrens’ leader, the “First Son” is revealed to be a trusted and longtime member of the Jedi Council.
Acting on the Consular’s advice, the armies of the Rift Alliance gradually push back the Empire’s forces on Corellia to uncover the First Son’s hiding place. The determined Consular launches a last-ditch assault against the First Son’s lair. In a climactic final battle with the galaxy at stake, these two masters of the Force cross sabers. The Consular ultimately defeats the First Son and emerges victorious. Without the First Son’s protection, the Children of the Emperor are revealed to the Jedi, allowing the Republic to steel itself against the Empire. Meanwhile the Consular is saluted as a hero of the order, ready for whatever challenges lie ahead.
