What exactly are the Jedi, really? It’s never spelled out in plain terms, but they seem to be some kind of monastic organization. Or maybe they represent some kind of religion. Or maybe they’re soldier-warrior-sorcerers. We’re never really sure. They’re always presented as the force of good in the Star Wars universe, but then again, Darth Vader was once Anakin Skywalker, so we know they can be corrupted – and when they are, they spiral downhill big time.
