According to the Comic Series "Star Wars : Jedi - The Dark Side I", Qui-Gon's first apprentice was a human male called Feemor.

enter image description here

When Feemor became a Jedi Knight, Qui-gon was immediately elevated to the rank of Master.

The old (and now defunct) article on Qui-Gon from the Star Wars Databank explains an apparent discrepancy in some of the earlier EU novels:

Though Qui-Gon defeated Xanatos, he could not bear to kill his own Padawan. The defeated student fled and Qui-Gon obsessed over his failure for years, dismissing his earlier successes as a teacher and often referring to Xanatos as his "first" apprentice.

  • Perhaps Feemor was his first actual apprentice, and after he became a Master he trained Xanatos & failed? IIRC Xanatos was the padawan right before Kenobi. The pair had to fight Xanatos in one of the young adult books.

  • @Omegacron - Yes, that's exactly right. There's a discrepancy between two of the earlier novels that this article is attempting (poorly) to mend.
