- "When the Jedi Order began, I saw we must be dedicated to peace. To calming our emotions, and ending war across the galaxy. If we fought, it should only be in self-defence. That is the founding principle of civilization."
- ―Garon Jard
A Force-sensitive Human, Garon Jard was considered one of the founders of the Jedi Order. He espoused the ideas that the Jedi should only take up arms in self-defense, and warned that even to protect others a Jedi should be wary of aggression and the blood that would be on their hands.
Following the Great Galactic War and the resurgence of the Sith Empire, a hologram of Master Jard was discovered on the ancestral Jedi homeworld Tython when the Order relocated from Coruscant. His was the first hologram reclaimed from the Tythonian Gnarls.
