A Jedi is a member of a Jedi Order, which study, serve and use the mystical energies of the Force to fight for peace and justice in the galaxy. Often this fight was directed towards the mortal enemies of the Jedi - the Sith, who study and use the Force for personal gain of power. The original Jedi Order was, on several occasions brought close to destruction, but fragments always seems to remain to re-build the Jedi. Currently, the galaxy holds not one, but many orders of Jedi. Although there are differences, most of these orders form their ideologies around the following, cryptic mottos:
- There is no emotion; there is peace.
- There is no ignorance; there is knowledge.
- There is no passion; there is serenity.
- There is no chaos; there is harmony.
- There is no death; there is the Force.
It is in the interpretation of these words, the variety flourishes.
