“There is no such thing as luck”
- Bastila Shan
Bastila was a Jedi Knight from the video game Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic. In the Old Republic, possessing certain Force powers was rare. Bastila possessed the Force power, Battle Mediation. She was able to spike courage in troops from the Republic and to make Sith soldiers lose complete faith and do poorly in battle. She was a big part of the Republic War effort. Back then, the entire Sith Empire were all called “Sith” instead of those who were just Force sensitive. She was put on a high pedestal and became a target for the then Dark Lord of the Sith, Darth Malak. Malak captured her and tortured her until she “willingly” turned to the dark side, which she did. She fell in love the Dark Lord of the Sith, Darth Revan who was Malak’s master. They both had a daughter Satele Shan who was the most powerful female jedi to have ever lived.
“What greater weapon is there than to turn an enemy to your cause? To use their own knowledge against them?”
- Satele Shan
Satele is the daughter of Revan and Bastila. Being the daughter of the Dark Lord of the Sith and a Jedi, you can assume she was a very poweful Jedi. She became the Grand Master of the Jedi Order in the Old Republic during the Cold War and Galactic War. She was able to stop a lightsaber blade with her bare hands and had the most powerful Force push known in Star Wars. She defeated Darth Malgus on Alderaan but not well enough. Malgus then returned to the Jedi Academy on Coruscant to slaughter all the Jedi inside and to fly a war ship right into the Jedi Temple. She later, single handedly destroyed the Sith Empire and restored peace in the galaxy.
“These are the moments we strive for, when the hope of victory becomes real. When we can see peace on the horizon”
4. Meetra Surik
Meetra Surik, also known as “The Exile”, was the padawan of Revan before he turned to the dark side during the Mandalorian Wars. She sided with Revan and Malak against the Jedi Order because they wanted to continue aiding the Republic against the Mandalorians. The Jedi Council believed it was not their problem to deal with the War. She refused to turn to the dark side and was then exiled by the Jedi Council along with being “stripped” of her connection to the Force. She went into exile where she was then sought out by the Sith Lord, Darth Traya also known as Kreia. Kreia helped Meetra heal herself and become one with the Force again. She possessed the unique Force power of being able to influence people’s choices, actions, and feelings. She defeated Darth Nihilus, Darth Sion, and Darth Traya along with destroying the dark side planet, Malachor V. The Malachor system is where Kylo Ren’s kyber crystal comes from. She destroys the entire Sith Empire and like Satele, brings peace to the galaxy.
