Yes, Beru and Owen were aware that Kenobi was a Jedi, at least according to the story told from her perspective in the (canon) anthology book Star Wars: From a Certain Point of View Still, there’ve been plenty of times I’ve wondered if I’d made a mistake. That day old Ben Kenobi showed up with the baby, my first instinct was to run. I may be a country ...

As said on https://starwars.fandom.com/wiki/Jedi "the Jedi aspired to attain a state of inner tranquility." In other words, part of being a Jedi is trying to divorce yourself from your emotions. This includes the urge for adventure and excitement. However, because Jedi are also devoted to protecting peace and democracy, they may sometimes be compelled to act ...

Since you're asking for "original sources", I want to mention that through the course of the original trilogy, no one ever identifies what Owen or Beru's relationship to Luke actually is. Is Owen related to one of Luke's parents? Is Beru? Neither?* We're only told that they knew Luke's father. This is particularly important because in the Annotated ...

Implied yes, according to the movie To supplement Valorum's excellent extended canon answer, we also know from the films that, at least according to Obi-Wan, Owen knew that Obi-Wan had fought in the Clone Wars, and believed that Anakin had followed Obi-Wan offworld on an "idealistic crusade:" LUKE No, my ...

Using the Star Wars wikia as a reference (I know, shoot me) we have the following "notable" Jedi Masters. Stass Allie - No beard Depa Billaba - No beard Ima-Gun Di - No beard Dooku - Beard Cin Drallig - No beard Sta-Den Eekin - No beard Selrahc Eluos - Unknown Kit Fisto - No beard Adi Gallia - No beard Halsey - No beard Qui-Gon Jinn - Beard Coleman Kcaj - ...

Anakin wants to save Padme The Force is not Jedi/Sith exclusive. Anakin would still be Force sensitive, even if he somehow resigned from the Jedi Order. And he had lot of skills (piloting, engineering ) even if he had to put his lightsaber away. Also, Padme was not exactly penniless :) But, there was another problem - his visions about Padme's death. His ...

I cannot speak to their respect or influence, but their power seems to have peaked thousands of years before the prequels. A Sith shrine buried beneath the Jedi temple on Coruscant continuously leeched away their powers, implying that their power was at its greatest prior to the construction of the temple. From the novel Tarkin: The two of them were in ...

He doesn't have anywhere else to go. Anakin's mother dies in Ep. 2, and he is essentially left with no one on his home planet of Tattooine that he knows well and likes. He also has the memory of being a slave there, and the embarassing incident with the Sand People that he later confides to Palpatine. Perhaps he could go try to live on the Lars' farm, but ...

I found these images in the Art of the Last Jedi.

Suppressing their emotions is a large part of the Jedi way after all so the masters wouldn't detect his joy at finally being married to Padme. I'd expect they learn other ways of protecting their thoughts as they'd be pretty ineffective against dark force users like the Sith otherwise. There must be exercises to strengthen the mind since Obi-Wan uses force ...

Yes, sort of. In Disney Canon - the novel Heir to the Jedi, Luke comes across a Rodian who knows her uncle was a Jedi who was killed by his clonetroopers during the Clone Wars. "A member of our clan was a Jedi Knight. He was my uncle in fact, and though his devotion to the Order usually kept him far from Rodia, I saw him a few times when I was ...

In Legends, Jedi were most powerful before the Ruusan Reformation during New Sith Wars. Jedi in that era were truly knights: powerful Force warriors that utilized armor and had their own armies, titles, and families. Some of them were actually Supreme Chancellors of the Republic like for example Genarra. The Ruusan Reformation neutered the Jedi Order, ...

The Star Wars Databank says that the Jedi were: A noble order of protectors unified by their ability to tap into the power of the Force, the Jedi Order were the guardians of peace and justice Jedi Order This is expounded on a bit in this article: The Jedi Knights were a noble order of Force-sensitive protectors—united by their ability to use the ...

As far as I know, casual sex have been very limited in Star Wars, at least for Jedi. Jedi Padawan Kira Carsen mentions that, ''The [Jedi] Council can grant Jedi the right to 'attach' under certain circumstances . . . only Jedi who were raised by the order from birth get permission.'' Though any such relationship, formally declared, will be heavily monitored, ...

  If you count only movies, 99% yes I don't know what you mean by "original sources" but there is lot of reason to believe they did know. First, in Episode 2 they meet Anakin & Padme. Anakin is clearly Jedi Padawan at this time. He goes to rescue his mother and in the process fights Sand People. They know he is powerful. ...

Ahsoka survives the entire original trilogy: she appears in the very last scene on Rebels which is set after ROTJ. After that, there's no official word unless it's been mentioned in a novel or something. As to why she doesn't appear in the trilogy itself, that's easily explained because the focus is on Luke Skywalker and his group. In the first film, the ...

  Jedi were odd mix of special forces and diplomats with religious undertones First of all , Jedi are not soldiers, i.e. Jedi Order could not engage proper army (like Droid Army) in conventional warfare on their own. They were however tricked into accepting roles of generals in Clone Army, but that's beside the point. However, Jedi could act on ...

It's pretty safe to say he would have. As Wookiepedia notes [The canon novel] Tarkin states that the Jedi Temple was converted into the Imperial Palace. The Special Edition of Return of the Jedi shows the Imperial Palace intact. So we know the Jedi Temple survived the Empire, thanks to it being converted into the Imperial Palace. After Palpatine's death, ...

Yes, some might even live with their families, e.g., Ki-Adi-Mundi in the comic Prelude to Rebellion. Before Episode I he lives on planet Cerea, advises Cerean government, etc. Later his daughter is kidnapped by Jabba the Hut... seems to be a very exciting familiy life. ;) See the article at Wookieepedia for details: http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Star_Wars:...

Pre-Visla: You're not Jedi, so what are you? Darth Maul: We are Sith. Pre-Visla: Do you serve Count Dooku? Darth Maul: I serve no one. Pre-Visla: I thought there can only be two Sith: a master and an apprentice? INDISPUTABLE EVIDENCE!
