A Jedi Master
Qui-Gon Jinn was an important Jedi Master in the second Star Wars trilogy about the origins of Darth Vader and the takeover of the Empire. He was born on Coruscant and was a powerful Jedi. He could have been a member of the Grand Council, but his tendency to defy the Council’s decisions made him an outsider and prevented him from achieving that status. He was also one of the first Jedi to take a close look at the concept of eternal consciousness after death. While on the planet Tatooine with his Padawan Obi-Wan Kenobi to protect Princess Amidala, he met a young slave named Anakin Skywalker. Because his father’s identity was a mystery and he had a high level of midi-chlorians, Qui-Gon thought this young boy might be the one in the Jedi prophecy, the one who could bring balance to the force. Qui-Gon decided to take over Anakin’s training, as the council felt he was already too old. He was killed by Darth Maul while trying to help Amidala take back the planet Naboo from the Trade Federation. He appeared again as a spirit to teach Obi-Wan and Yoda the path to eternal consciousness.
