- "It wasn't always like this. But now, there are three rules to survive. Don't stand out. Accept the past. Trust…no one. The galaxy's changed. Whatever you do…Don't. Reach. Within. Trust…only…in the Force."
- ―Cal Kestis
Cal Kestis, a Force-sensitive human male, was a former Padawan who survived the Clone Wars as well as the fall of the Jedi Order. During the age of the Galactic Empire, Kestis sought to avoid the purge that killed most of his fellow Jedi by creating a new life for himself on the planet Bracca, and therefore worked as a rigger with the Scrapper Guild.
Despite his efforts to remain hidden, Kestis' connection to the Force was discovered by the Empire, forcing him to flee from a group of Jedi hunters with his droid BD-1. Despite becoming a target of the Inquisitorius' Second Sister, who was supported by stormtroopers and a contingent of elite Purge Troopers, Kestis embarked on a journey to complete his Jedi training and rebuild the order he once served. During his fight against the Empire, Kestis became an ally of the Partisans' commander, Saw Gerrera, and also found a mentor in the former Jedi Knight Cere Junda.
Personality and traitsEdit
A human male, Cal Kestis served the Jedi Order as a Padawan before Order 66 was ensued. After the fall of the Jedi, Kestis went to serve the Scrapper Guild as a rigger, a physically demanding and dangerous job. However, Cal was regarded for a focused work ethic and sense of humility he generally kept for himself, yet he was quiet and hard-working.
Powers and abilitiesEdit
He took possession of a lightsaber and used it in combat. He also knew how to use the Force adequately. He was shown to be able to use Force push, Force pull & Force Stasis in great effect against the Empire.
Behind the scenesEdit
Cal Kestis will be the protagonist of the upcoming Star Wars video game Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, scheduled to be released on November 15, 2019. He will be portrayed by Cameron Monaghan. Before settling on Kestis, the game developers thought about having either an alien or female protagonist, but Kestis was ultimately used because they didn't wanted to "alienate" the player nor have a female protagonist competing with Rey, the sequel trilogy's protagonist.
