Who are the Servants of the Light?

Who are the Servants of the Light?

They are simply Jedi who study, serve and use the light side of the Force. When required they fight for peace and justice.

How do they live their lives?

"You have chosen the lonely path. The Jedi teach denial of self. That is their weakness. No sentient can long abide that."
— Saes Rrogon, Jedi-turned-Sith Lord

Becoming a Jedi requires a significant commitment and astute mind; the life of a Jedi is typically one of sacrifice.

From the beginning of training, a Jedi is expected to adhere to a Code that included concepts such as rational thought, patience, and benevolence. Dark emotions such as hate, anger, and fear are known to be destructive, leading down the path to the dark side, so the Jedi are taught to purge such feelings.

The Three Pillars of the Jedi

“Jedi do not fight for peace. That's only a slogan, and is as misleading as slogans always are. Jedi fight for civilization, because only civilization creates peace. We fight for justice because justice is the fundamental bedrock of civilization: an unjust civilization is built upon sand. It does not long survive a storm.”
— Mace Windu

The strength of the Jedi Code and organisation of the Order rests on the three core tenets of Force, Knowledge, and Self-Discipline.

The first tenet (or Pillar) is the Force, the constant between all things. Given purpose by the Force, Master Sabla-Mandibu described the Jedi as “swimming in the Force in our every moment — breathing it, tasting it, riding its currents to our unique destines.”

A symbiosis of midi-chlorians and sentient beings is the key needed to be able to touch the Force, but this biological necessity is not a main focus of Jedi study. Instead, Jedi contemplate the will of the Force and the differences between its two aspects: the Unifying and Living Force.

The Pillar of Knowledge maintains that a Jedi’s role in the galaxy could not be filled without intense study and accumulated wisdom. To assist in the pursuit of knowledge, the Hidden Temple is equipped with a deep well of knowledge known as the Jedi Archives.

Lastly, the Pillar of Self-Discipline is rightly known as the Third Pillar. Classes on combat and physical training are not given until mastery of the first two tenets was gained.
Emberlene's Daughter, The Jedi Generalist
[member="Sorel Crieff"] hmm this is nice and fits Matsu better. yeah she has a company that evolved from the research and technical division of the jedi temple and has grown. It is now something big but continues to function to serve the ideals of the order. charity and giving its stuff away while producing and sustaining. It fits Matsu's ideal of a jedi serving regardless of personal work. She has a family and will always serve the lightside and the order instead of her own self. She'll be glad to be there with her former padawan and aid her as she has done a great deal more to work on accumulating knowledge from around the galaxy and fostering relationships to teach the jedi.
