"Over the centuries many challenges have been employed to assess this ability in the Trial of Insight. These include locating a single grain of sand within a field of stones, determining the content and meaning of a fragmentary text from scattered pieces, and solving any of the High Riddles of Dwartii—and no, researching the riddles in the Archives beforehand is not permitted."
―Restelly Quist, The Jedi Path: A Manual for Students of the Force[1]

The High Riddles of Dwartii were a set of riddles[1] that shared their name with the Inner Rim's Dwartii system[2] as well as the group of philosophers and lawgivers known as the Four Sages of Dwartii.[3] As a means of assessment in the Trial of Insight—a Jedi Trial which sought to test one's ability to overcome illusion and discern the truth of a matter—one challenge Jedi Padawans could face was solving a High Riddle of Dwartii, without prior research of it in the Jedi Archives.[1] At some point by 990 BBY,[4] Chief Librarian Restelly Quist of the Jedi Order authored a chapter devoted to the Jedi Trials for the Jedi trainee guidebook The Jedi Path: A Manual for Students of the Force. In that chapter, she noted the riddles' role in the Trial of Insight.[1]
