With an unnecessarily passionate fanfare and a heady mix of a highly compiled canonical world, Star Wars Fundix is the perfect hellscape for arguments for a certain type of thing. The Jedi are no exception, and adopt that title to the idea of Force users if they don’t fully gel with the warrior monks we met in the prequel and are still beyond anything. But there was a time when this did not always happen.
In the 90s, the Star Wars Expanded Universe was flourishing. It told both of the stories of the Jedi Order that Luke Skywalker set up after the return of the Jedi, and set it off in the past to establish folkloric tales of his very origins. Next, the tightly defined version of the Jedi that we would come to meet, when George Lucas revisited his beloved saga with Phantom Mains, was a twinkle in the mind’s eye. The ideological divide that would eventually push Anakin Skywalker towards the dark – the very idea of attachment as an antidote to the role of the Jedi – even less so.
The New Jedi Order had knights and masters who were husbands and wives, who grew up children who joined the Order like their parents, before they included Luke. But what will happen to the version of Order Luke, which was devastated by the mysterious clone war and the rise of the empire? Fans began learning in the pages known as Star Wars: Republic.
It was launched in late 1998–1910, two years before the new ongoing series of Dark Horse (then simply titled Star Wars), when The Phantom Mens hit theaters, leading to the events of the film The year closed with two six-digit arcs. The first two arcs of the series were called Prelude to Rebellion (by Anthony Winn, John Straned and Robert Jones) and Outlander (by Timothy Truman, Tom Rane, Rick Leonardi, and Al Ri Ri). Instead of focusing on the events surrounding the film or in the Jedi Temple, he introduced us to a strange Jedi that was teased against the backdrop of the Phantom Men of the Jedi characters: the big-headed Ki-Ki-Mundi, Then a newly formed Jedi Master and a member of the Council.
Prelude and Outlander are fascinating tales for a number of reasons, if only they choose the way Kai-Adi as a seaside calm focus master instead of the Samurai wanders, we’ll see the Phantom in danger. The missions on which he was sent were attacked by thugs like mercenary underworld and Jabba the Hut. In the Prelude, he fights to clear his name from a false murder charge after advocating that his techno-primitive housewife accept off-world help, and in Outlander he becomes an ex-Z master (!) Has been ordered Leading Tuscan Raider (!!). Here alone they touch on the world-building ideas that the new trilogy signals as they move forward, but Kee-Adi-Mundi is so charming in these stories that she has a life outside the Jedi Order. In fact, he has a family.
Our introduction to the Mundi family, from the preface to the first pages of the rebellion, is not presented as a shocking vengeance. Eventually, the preamble began at a time when the Jedi’s rules of attachment were not so strictly defined. Even due to the fact that Ki-Adi does not have a wife, but many a primary bond-wife, Shea and several honor wives make it clear that due to Serens having a highly female population, polygamous relationships are the norm. Is not considered as necessary. , It is just a part of the Serene society. Half a year later this year, we dare him to see a young Anakin Skywalker, so that he can remember the mother he had left in bondage, thousands of light away at Tatoyin, it is almost comical in heresy . A Jedi Master, with not one romantic attachment, but many! But at the time, it could have just been Jedi, and Star Wars: Republic gave Ki-Adi-Mundi a remarkable texture with it.
The prologue is the most with Cerebell, which lends its big story around Ceria’s lack of technological progress. There is also the push and pull of the republican and Cerean interests that put Ki-Adi at the center of a larger social divide, their commitment to the Jedi, the corrupt republics that serve the Jedi, and toggle between their own homeowners and the people. Does. It was such a struggle for Kiyi-Adi when one of his daughters, Sylvan, dragged himself into the movement of young serials advocating acceptance of the planet in the republic.
Moments with Ki-Adi and his wives arouse curiosity for the mere fact of their romantic nature, but they also humanize them. In a few pages, he becomes more than a Jedi Master; He is a husband who loves his wives so much, almost as much as he can inadvertently put his foot in their mouth, he is a father related to her inheritance, who wishes to have a son with his daughters keeps.
