The Jedi Council whenever something fucked up happens in the Clone Wars and it’s at least partially their fault.

(Yes, I know it’s missing some members. My answer to that is a very heartfelt: “Eh. Close enough.”)

I just love Star Wars bc like. U got all these ridiculous made up names that sound like they just scrambled random letters together.

Padme Amidala, Mace Windu, Obi-wan Kenobi, Anakin Skywalker, Ahsoka Tano, Ki-Adi-Mundi, Yoda, Chewbacca, Jyn Erso, Garazeb Orrelios, Kanan Jarrus, Shaak Ti, Kit Fisto, Jango Fett, Boba Fett, Dooku, Pong Krell, Raako Hardeen, Aayla Secura, Asajj Ventress, Hera Syndulla, Leia Organa, Mon Mothma Cassian Andor, Satine Kryze, Bo-katan Kryze, Pre Vizsla, Galen Erso, Plo Koon, Quinlan Vos, Qui-Gon Jinn, Bodhi Rook, Eeth Koth, Barriss Offee, Luminara Unduli, Han Solo, Cham Syndulla, Lando Calrissian, Bail Organa, Jabba the Hutt, Poe Dameron, Phasma, Chirrut Imwe, Baze Malbus, Riyo Chuchi, Lux Bonteri, Saesee Tiin, Adi Gallia, Watto, Cad Bane, Aurra Sing, Zam Wessel, Ketsu Onyo, Sabine Wren, Savage Opress, Jar Jar Binks, Tarpals, Tarful, Bossk, Tarkin, Krennic, Thrawn, Kallus, Saw Gerrara, Steela Gerrara, Gar Saxon, Rook Kast, fucking SNOKE. And that’s just off the top of my head.

Then for every 20 or 30 of these ridiculous, barely pronounceable names you get average ass shit like Luke, Ezra, Ben, Finn and Cody.

Get you a franchise that can do both amirite.

Since we’re getting our salt out:
-The Jedi Council isn’t abusive
-You can’t shit on the Jedi Council while being a fan of Obi Wan, Shaak Ti, or Plo Koon. Cause by calling the Council stupid/abusive/cruel/negligent/whatever else, you’re also calling those three stupid/abusive/cruel/negligent
-Saesee Tiin is a very important member of the Jedi Order, and is damn impressive in everything he does and deserves proper recognition damn it
-Cham Syndulla can be a really shitty father at times, but to say he doesn’t love Hera with his entire being is to completely ignore an important piece of his character
-Cham is very psychologically damaged and extremely mentally unstable, he acts the way he does for a fucking reason oh my god why am I even saying this

To both sides of Qui-Gon, Jedi and judicials were beginning to climb from the lake, their waterlogged tunics and uniforms weighing them down. Following Qui-Gon’s lead, Obi-Wan sprang from the water, landing atop one of the smaller rocks. Vergere floated in like a water fowl until she reached the stony beach, then she called on her powerful reverse-articulated legs to catapult her ashore. Saesee Tiin’s big hands cut through the waves like flippers. Yaddle rode in atop Ki-Adi-Mundi’s broad shoulders, her short arms wrapped around his tall head, and her topknot of golden-brown hair plastered to her green skull.
Close by, Depa Billaba stepped gracefully to the beach, as if emerging from a warm bath.
—  Everyone else is struggling while Depa walks out the lake like a Queen (James Luceno, ‘Cloak of Deception’)

Pictured here are Jedi Masters Adi Gallia and Stass Allie, and Eeth Koth and Agen Kolar.  You might think they bear a certain resemblance to each other - and you would be right!

TPM was filmed in England, whereas AotC was filmed in Australia.  George Lucas intended to re-use the Jedi Council members in AotC but hired new Australian actors to play them (why they couldn’t just fly out the original actors from England is beyond me).

For some Jedi, the ones wearing more substantial makeup like Plo Koon and Saesee Tiin, having a different actor playing the character was fine.  But for Eeth Koth and Adi Gallia, the difference between the actors was much more pronounced. LFL rightly decided they couldn’t try to pass these people off as the same characters and, in a bit of a retcon, created two entirely new characters - Stass Allie and Agen Kolar.  

In some ways, I’ve always regretted that they didn’t use the original actors, since it would have given Adi Gallia (my favorite prequel Jedi!) a much larger role in all three prequels.  But on the other hand, there are now four interesting Jedi characters instead of just two!

Dear Tuhan,

Apa kabar? Engkau yang tak mungkin bersemayam di Banyuwangi dan tentu saja itu tidak mungkin. Engkau di atas Arsy sekaligus lebih dekat dari nadi.

Kau tentu saja sudah tahu apa yang akan kutuliskan ini. Bahkan sebelum segala sesuatunya Kau ciptakan, bermiliar-miliar juta tahun yang lalu. Tapi bolehkan Kau biarkan aku menuntaskan tulisan ini? Aku takkan menangis.

Maaf Tuhan, lagi-lagi aku berkeluh-kesah, merengek-rengek seperti anak kecil yang tak mau diatur. Apakah Kau bosan padaku? Tentu tidak, bukan? Sebab aku yakin Kau mencintaiku, maka untuk itu aku diciptakan.

Now I’m just comparing known Sith-on-Jedi kill counts. Which are generally really low.

Darth Sidious: 4 (Agen Kolar, Saesee Tiin, Kit Fisto, and Mace Windu)

Darth Maul: 2 (Qui-Gon Jinn and Finn Ertay)

Savage Opress (who was the Apprentice of a splinter sect): 2 (Adi Gallia and the unnamed Jedi who was with Finn Ertay)

Darth Tyranus: 1 (Tiplee)

And then there’s Darth Vader, with a hundred plus. Geez, Anakin.

I got some really nice feedback on Wake and Gambit lately, which means I’ve been thinking idly about the Watchtower universe (still on hold, no one get too excited), so here are five things that are (currently) true at the start of the third Ouroboros story.

1. Mace Windu is the Grand Master of the Jedi Order.  It’s unknown whether or not Yoda survived the Purge, but as he hasn’t been accounted for, that’s everyone’s working assumption.

2. Current Council members include: Mace Windu, Plo Koon, Adi Gallia, Ki-Adi-Mundi, Depa Billaba, Kit Fisto, Agen Kolar, Saesee Tiin, Luminara Unduli, K’kruhk, T’ra Saa, and Aayla Secura.

3. Roughly a quarter of all clones in the GAR remained loyal to their Jedi generals.

4. The Jedi Order is currently operating out of a long-abandoned Jedi Temple on an undisclosed planet known only as the Hidden Temple.

5. At the start of the story (or the epilogue of Gambit), there are still several hundred Jedi unaccounted for a year after the Purge, including Shaak Ti, Oppo Rancisis, and Yoda.

Honestly I don’t get why Mace Windu gets the lion’s share of the blame for Ahsoka when Ki-Adi Mundi and Saesee Tiin were actually much bigger assholes about it than he was.

He said it was actually her great trial because he truly believes that, and simply doesn’t understand why that could be an insensitive thing to say.

The entire situation is a lot more complex than “they just didn’t care about Ahsoka”.

Wow, that empty seat is really glaring.  Also, wow, for once they got everyone still alive back to Coruscant; usually a couple to the majority of those seats are filled with holograms.

(Obi-Wan, so done with everything in this scene.  Obi-Wan is not having with literally any of this nonsense.  Saesee Tiin’s looking at him like, “Obi-Wan, you need a nap, you need a square meal, you need to stop doing crazy shit and watching people die.  And insulting people.  Stop that.”)

…man, just look how worn the Council Chamber floor is.
