Anakin Skywalker, Jedi Guardian[1]

"This weapon is your life."
Obi-Wan Kenobi to Anakin Skywalker, referring to the lightsaber[src]

A Jedi Guardian was the name given to a Jedi whose skills and talents lay in battle[1], a light side mirror of the Sith Warrior.[2]

They often concentrated on martial training and combat and usually engaged in combat more than any other Jedi, though they were no less skilled at diplomacy. Like all Jedi, they were keepers of the peace, acting as a kind of special police force for the Republic. Guardians traditionally wielded blue lightsabers, though this was not a rule.[2]

Once a Guardian attained the rank of Jedi Master, they were given the honorific title of Warrior Master (also known as Weapon Master).

According to legend, it was two Warrior Masters along with the two Sage Masters who constructed the Jedi Temple on the galactic capital of Coruscant[3].

List of Jedi Guardians

Behind the scenes

The use of the term Jedi Guardian is usually limited to the Star Wars Roleplaying Game. However, the term was canonized in The New Essential Chronology and the Essential Guide to the Force. Notable Guardians include Juhani, Mace Windu, Anakin Skywalker, Qui-Gon Jinn, Plo Koon, Obi-Wan Kenobi, and Agen Kolar.

In Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic, Jedi Guardian is one of the Jedi classes that is available to the player on Dantooine. The class is also present in Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lords, along with two prestige counterparts: Jedi Weapon Master for light side, and Sith Marauder for dark side.

It should be noted that even though Jedi Guardians concentrated most on combat and lightsaber mastery, some Guardians were naturally so strong in the Force that they had Force ability to the degree of the Jedi Consulars. Examples include Mace Windu, Qui-Gon Jinn, Anakin Skywalker, and Luke Skywalker. The same can be said for Nomi Sunrider, Yoda, Shaak Ti, and Kit Fisto in the opposite view. Although established as Jedi Consulars, they were also notable as being among the best lightsaber duelists of their time.

In the Star Wars Miniatures set Champions of the Force, the Jedi Guardian figure resembles Atris.
