"By the right of the Council, by the will of the Force, Kanan Jarrus, you may rise."
―The Sentinel[src]

The Knighting ceremony was a Jedi ceremony in which a Padawan, who, by the right of the Jedi High Council and will of the Force, was granted the rank of Jedi Knight.

HistoryEdit

Sometime during or prior to 40 BBY,[2] Jedi Padawan Cere Junda was brought before the Jedi High Council to discuss the recent mission that had been assigned to her and her Master, Eno Cordova. As a result of her actions during the battle, a recommendation from Cordova, and testimonies from the Daa Security Forces and various Fylari survivors, the Jedi Council decided that she was ready to be promoted to the rank of Jedi Knight. The ceremony concluded with the following quote: "By the rights of the Council, by the will of the Force, (insert name here), you may rise. You are now a knight of the Jedi Order."[3]

In 14 BBY,[4] prior to his mission to infiltrate Fortress Inquisitorius, Jedi Padawan Cal Kestis was knighted by now former Jedi Knight Junda, when she used a lightsaber from an Inquisitor. The ceremony concluded with the following quote: "By the right of the Council, by the will of the Force, (insert name here). Rise, Jedi Knight."[5]

Years later, Kanan Jarrus, a former Padawan, went through a knighting ceremony during a vision in the Lothal Jedi Temple. In the vision, which was induced by Jedi Master Yoda, Jarrus was dubbed a Knight by an apparition of the Grand Inquisitor, who had once been a Knight and Jedi Temple Guard. The ceremony concludes with the following quote: "By the right of the Council, by the will of the Force, (insert name here), you may rise."[1]

Behind the scenesEdit

The Knighting ceremony first appeared in the Star Wars Rebels second season episode "Shroud of Darkness'", that premiered on March 2, 2016.[1]

  2. Jedi Master Poli Dapatian, who is present on the Jedi High Council in Jedi Fallen Order - Dark Temple 1, retires from his position in Master & Apprentice, meaning that the comic must take place before the novel. Master & Apprentice gives the age of Obi-Wan Kenobi as seventeen years old, while ToppsDigitalLogoStar Wars: Card Trader (Card: Obi-Wan Kenobi - Padawan - Base Series 1) establishes that Kenobi was born fifty-seven years before the Battle of Yavin, which is placed in 0 BBY by Star Wars: Galactic Atlas. Kenobi's birth year can therefore be dated to 57 BBY, placing Master & Apprentice in 40 BBY, and Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order - Dark Temple, and thus Jedi Fallen Order - Dark Temple 5, some time prior.
  3. Jedi Fallen Order - Dark Temple 5
  4. The events of Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order occur five years after the proclamation of the New Order, which Star Wars: Galactic Atlas dates to 19 BBY. Therefore, it can be deduced that the events of Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order take place in 14 BBY.
