- ―Fae Coven, explaining the Jedi Code in The Jedi Path: A Manual for Students of the Force
Homonix Rectonia was a member of the Jedi Order during the early Manderon Period, which began in 7000 BBY. One of Rectonia's lasting contributions to the Order was the transcription of the Jedi Code in its classical form. Consisting of five precepts, the Code would be modified and altered over the millennia; however, following the Ruusan Reformation of 1000 BBY, Rectonia's original work was restored by Jedi Grand Master Fae Coven in The Jedi Path: A Manual for Students of the Force, a Jedi trainee guidebook that was still in use during the Clone Wars almost a millennium later.
Behind the scenes
- "In the text, this version of the Jedi Code is mentioned as its "classical form," as transcribed by "Homonix Rectonia during the early Manderon Period." The mention that there are other—more controversial—versions of the Jedi Code is an acknowledgement of how ridiculously tangled Jedi lore would have to be after 25,000 years of growth."
- ―Daniel Wallace
Homonix Rectonia was first mentioned in The Jedi Path: A Manual for Students of the Force, a reference book written by Daniel Wallace and published in 2010. In the endnotes for The Jedi Path, originally published at his StarWars.com blog, Wallace told that he wanted to recognize the multiple interpretations of the Jedi Code that had existed during the Order's 25 millennia history, therefore establishing that Rectonia's transcription of the Code was considered its "classical" form. The non-canon 2014 young readers book LEGO Star Wars: Yoda's Secret Missions, written by Ace Landers, mentioned that Rectonia transcribed the classical version of the code and that the Jedi was a Master.
