Star Wars The Old Republic Jedi Consular Class is one of the oldest Star War Old Republic classes around. They are highly respected all over the galaxy. Even the Sith Empire respects them to some degree as they have stolen Consular’s over to the Dark Side. Here is a brief history of how Star Wars The Old Republic Jedi Consular Class came to being and what they stand for.
The Jedi Order has been around for 20,000 years. Consulars use wisdom in diplomacy and strength in combat by using the power of the Force. This brings balance and peace to the Galactic Republic. They are always constantly learning about themselves, learning vast knowledge of the galaxy, and the effects of the Force that puts it altogether.
Star Wars The Old Republic Jedi Consular Class cannot get rid of the enemies or the darkness until they do the same within themselves. Everyone has a dark side and they must never give into weakness or temptation. When giving orders, they must always check themselves for the right reasons and motives. Meaning they are not doing this for personal gain but only for the Galaxy.
Consulars mediate and train years on end to keep their minds sharp and channeling the power of the Force. They may discover secrets that were forgotten with the Jedi, or they may have to raise armies to beat back the darkness. They have to stay evenly balanced and in harmony within themselves at all times. They are sought after for guidance and advice from the Governors and Senators.
When times where more at peace, the Consulars protected the Jedi lore as keepers or were an ambassador in service to the Republic. But, as times got darker, Consulars heeded the call for help to face it and bring it down on the front lines of historic battles.
In combat, it goes way beyond mediation and meditation. They are very fluent and efficient in battle. They use light sabers along with the power of the Force and can destroy legions of droids and disable battles before they even begin.
