"The boy. He your son?"
"No. He is my Padawan. Something between a student and an apprentice."
Grecker and Obi-Wan Kenobi, discussing Anakin Skywalker[src]

A Padawan referred to a Force-sensitive adolescent who trained in the Jedi Order to one day become a Jedi. Padawans were known as Jedi younglings at first, and trained in classroom settings with multiple students and a teacher.[7] After reaching a certain age, Padawans were normally apprenticed to a Jedi Knight or Jedi Master, beginning their one-on-one training. Apprentices would often go on missions with their masters as part of this one-on-one training. Jedi were only allowed to have one Padawan as an apprentice at a time. After completing 'the trials' to become a Jedi, a Padawan would be promoted to the rank of Knight.[1] When promoted, the Padawan braid they grew or wore to symbolize their rank as a Padawan is cut off with a lightsaber.[source?]
