In the continuation of the A to Z Challenge in my post today. We are to the letter Q and that stands for Qui-Gon Jinn.
He was a revered, yet maverick and unconventional Jedi Master. He was the Padawan to Count Dooku, and the mentor to Obi-Wan Kenobi and briefly Anakin Skywalker. Jinn often placed himself in conflict with the Jedi High Council. You have to like a guy you speaks his mind.He was deeply attuned to the Living Force, which contributed to him frequently taking side trips to help seemingly weak and useless life-forms. Despite his opposition to the council, he was regarded by many Jedi as sharp-witted and possessing great wisdom.
Jinn served the Galactic Republic and the Jedi Order his entire life, participating in actions against the Nebula Front, most famously during the Invasion of Naboo. It was Jinn who discovered the Chosen One, Anakin Skywalker, on Tatooine during this crisis and was largely responsible for championing his training. Even after his death at the hands of Darth Maul, he played a vital role in the legacy of the Jedi Order.
Imagine if he could trained Anakin the entire time instead of Obi-Wan Kenobi. It would have been interesting to see how things would have turned out.
I wish that we as an audience would have had more than one movie with Jinn. I hope you enjoyed the clip.
Do you this that Jinn would have kept Anakin from turning to the dark side of the force?
