"The Grand Master is to take a Padawan. This is a rare honor"
Tera Sinube[src]

Grand Master or Grandmaster was a title generally bestowed on the oldest and wisest member of the Jedi Order. Whereas the Master of the Order served as leader of the Jedi High Council, the Grand Master was the head of the Jedi Order. Yoda, a Jedi Master who had lived for over eight centuries by the time of the Clone Wars, was the Grand Master of the Jedi Order during the reign of the Galactic Republic.

Roles and powers[edit | edit source]

The Grand Master oversaw the Jedi Order.[3] The title of Grand Master was generally reserved for the oldest and wisest living Jedi Master. It was distinct from the office of Master of the Order, the holder of which led the Jedi High Council.[4] However, it was possible for a single individual to hold both titles at the same time.[5] The Grand Master would humbly teach the most junior members of the Order, younglings, completing the circle of training.[6]

History[edit | edit source]

During the Clone Wars, the title of Grand Master was held by Yoda.[5] After the Dark Lord of the Sith Darth Sidious managed to kill the majority of Jedi throughout the galaxy, the Grand Master went into hiding on the planet Dagobah.[2]
