Star Wars Challenge Day 4

Favorite Jedi!  The Jedi are one of my favorite things about Star Wars, so this is much easier than picking someone from the Empire.

Since I already talked about Obi-Wan on day one, this post is dedicated to his master, Qui-Gon Jinn!


"Feel, don't think.  Use your instincts."
 
He is another character that I probably really like because of the Jedi Apprentice books.  When it was announced that he would appear in TCW (voiced by Liam Neeson!) I was beyond excited.
 
Qui-Gon is so wise and connected to the Living Force, keeping him in the present moment, and making him compassionate toward all creatures.  Even Jar Jar Binks, much to Obi-Wan's dismay.

He's also a bit of a rebel.  Although the Jedi Council, 12 of the greatest Jedi in the Order, have one idea about how things are, Qui-Gon will do what he believes to be right.

But he's a lot of fun too.  His dry sense of humor is great.  And if anyone writes song parodies, his name fits in everything.  Especially super hero songs like Larry-Boy and Darkwing Duck.

Oh, and he's hilarious in the webcomic Darths & Droids.  Does anyone read it?  If you don't, I'd definitely recommend it.  You can find the first strip here.

That's all for tonight - so long, and thanks for all the bigger fish.

  1. Yessssss Qui-Gon is the best! I was seriously debating between writing about him or Obi-Wan for my entry. He's definitely my second favorite!

    Also Liam Neeson is the greatest, so there's that.
