Twilek General SECR

A Twi'lek Jedi General during the Clone Wars.

"They're good. No words needed. Perfect sync. Like clones in a way. Better. They're the best. That's why they command."
Clone Commander Bly[src]

While the Jedi Order was not a military organization, in times of need its members often became Jedi Generals to lead military forces.

HistoryEdit

The earliest generals fought in the Mandalorian Wars as Revanchists, opposing the Neo-Crusader invasion. The end result was them falling to the dark side and forming a Sith Empire.

During the Great Galactic War and following Galactic War, many Jedi led Republic troopers into battle against the reconstituted Sith Empire.

Jedi were assigned to serve as generals (some as Lords) of the Army of Light during the New Sith Wars. Most, if not all, of those still alive by the Seventh Battle of Ruusan perished in that battle.

During the Clone Wars, most Jedi Knights and Masters were given the rank of general. ORBAT for the Grand Army of the Republic accommodated for 80 Jedi Generals in command of corps (along with a clone marshal commander) and 320 in command of legions (along with a senior clone commander). There were also High Jedi Generals in command of the ten Systems Armies, and Senior Jedi Generals in command of the twenty Sector Armies. Padawans were given the rank of Jedi Commander and put in command of each of the army's 1,280 regiments. There were also Jedi of other rank, such as Colonel Tyneir Renz.

Some Jedi refused to accept their new military status and left the Order, while others still chose to work undercover rather than on the battlefield. Many of the Jedi officers died during the war against the Separatists, and clone troopers killed most of the remaining generals when Order 66 was executed by Supreme Chancellor Palpatine, a Sith Lord.
