Some Background The Force The Force is the energy of living creatures that binds the galaxy together. It influences events and gives instructions to its servants. The Jedi Originated from a small society of monks on the planet Tython who studied and served the force. As the order grew, it expanded off Tython and became the protectors of the galaxy, later joining the Republic. The Sith Sith is actually the name of a force-sensitive, red-skinned species once native to the planet Korriban. When a group of Jedi became dark Jedi and were exiled from the Jedi order, they crashed on Korriban and were treated as gods by the locals. The actual Sith eventually died out, but the name stuck.
They use the Dark side of the Force.
When Darth Bane came to power he enforced the Rule of Two in which there can only be a Master and an apprentice. The Characters

Trained Luke partially in the ways of the Jedi.
Died in a lightsaber duel with Darth Vader, his old apprentice, when he and the others went to rescue Leia. Star Wars: The Crash Course! Anakin was presented to the Jedi counsel by Obi-Wan and Qui-Gon Jinn at the age of 9, a fact that caused the counsel to hesitate about accepting him into the Order. Normally force-sensitives are taken to be trained as Jedi at birth, leaving them no time to develope attatchments and other traits that could lead to the Dark Side.
Having started training at 9 years of age, Anakain had already developed unhealthy emotions and attatchments. Yoda sensed a corrosive worm of fear within Anakin during their first meeting. It stemmed from his love of his mother and fear he would never see her again.
As he grew, the worm grew as well. Anakin never let his Jedi training get in the way of developing love of people and objects. Though a core teaching of the Jedi order was to never bind yourself to one thing permanently, but rather let it go and find peace, Anakin developed further attachments to his future wife Padmé Amidala, his mentor Obi-Wan, his droid friends C-3PO and R2-D2, and Chancellor Palpatine among others. These attachments caused him to constantly put himself in danger for those he loved, and eventually led to his Fall to the Dark Side.
Become a Jedi Master - Initially embraces it but after years of being a Knight, which is normal, Anakin grows impatient. He claims he is stronger than other older Jedi, who have already completed the trials to become a master. The Jedi council senses his anger and frustration, causing them to hesitate about giving him "mastership". Anakin also dsires the rank of Master in order to access Jedi files that may give him an answer to the problem of Padme's death. Anakin/ Darth Vader Han is introduced into the story as a spice smuggler. Han owes money to Jabba the Hutt, a crimelord, due to dumping a load of spice into space.
All that matters is money... and friends - this philosophy has helped Han over the years. It has allowed him to survive, assembling a network of contacts which he calls upon in times of need. The thirst for money was the root cause of Han meeting Luke and Ben as they seeked to leave Tatooine. Han agreed to take them off the planet, but at a high price. He should get whatever he wants - this philosophy stemmed from the frustration and anger Anakin experienced during his time as a Jedi Knight along with surreptitious support from Palpatine. Anakin believed he was better than other Jedi, including some masters, due to his massive force abilities. Palpatine supported this, saying that Anakin was the most powerful Jedi he had ever met and that hedeserved whatever he wanted. However, the Jedi Council sensed this frustration in Anakin, postponing his mastership until they were forced by circumstances to give it to him, and even then only giving him a puppet post. Save others - Anakin constantly puts himself and others in harm's way to save those he loves. He has always had a sense of selflessness, essential to Jedi philsophy, but following Anakin's mother's death, this grows into an unhealthy, unjedi-like habit. An example would be during episode III, The Revenge of the Sith, when Anakin and Obi-Wan embark on a mission to save the Chancellor from Count Dooku, a Sith apprentice and leader of the Seperatist movement who had "captured" Palpatine. During the mission, Anakin stops twice, once to try and save his droid R2-D2, risking his master's and the Chancellor's lives, and once to save his master, risking Palpatine's life. End justifies the means - this philosophy helped Anakin's fall toward the Dark Side. Palpatine helped implant this in Anakin during Anakin's and Obi-Wan's rescue mission. After Obi-Wan was knocked out by Dooku, Anakin launched a fury-driven attack on the Sith. Palpatine and Dooku both knew of the anger that Anakin possessed. However, Palpatine had not informed Dooku of all his plans. Anakin eventually defeated Dooku, severing both his hands. Dooku, not expecting Anakin's power, pleads with the Chancellor, but what he did not know was that Palpatine planned to sacrifice Dooku so that Anakin could fall to the Dark Side. He orders Anakin to kill Dooku, telling him that dooku is too dangerous to keep alive. Anakin takes the bait, goes against all his Jedi training, and slays Dooku. Anakin uses this philsophy to comfort himself later. Anakin uses this same philosophy when searching for a way to save Padme. After Palpatine reveals to Anakin that he is the Sith Darth Sidious that the Jedi are looking for, Anakin tells the masters, who stage an attack on Sidious. However, Anakin realizes that he has found no help from the Jedi in the matter of Padme, and instead turns to Sidious for help after he tells him of a fabled Sith technique that allows eternal life. Anakin saves Sidious by killing the last standing Master, becoming a Sith apprentice under Sidious soon after. Once Palpatine issues Order 66, Anakin travels to the Jedi temple and kills the Jedi there, all to save Padme. Anakin's Philosophy (Prequel) Luke and Ben seeked transport to Alderaan, but unknown to them, the planet had already been destroyed by the Death Star. When the Millenium Falcon gets caught by the weapon's tractor beam, Han considers selling out the identities of his two passengers to the Empire. However, when Luke tells him of the princess on the Death star that needs saving, along with the riches she will grant Han for saving her, the smuggler agrees to help.
After rescuing Leia, Han travels to the Rebel Alliance base on Yavin IV, where he expects to drop off his passengers and collect his reward. He leaves with his money just before the Empire arrives to destroy the planet. However, during the ensuing battle, Han and Chewbacca fly in and rescue Luke from a squad of TIE fighters, one of which was piloted by Darth Vader. This allows Luke to destroy the Death Star, crippling the Empire's might. Ben's philsophy is more or less the same as Obi-Wan's. Over the past nineteen years, he had been watching Luke grow, practicing Jedi techniques to stay fit. During his, Luke's, Han's, and Chewbacca's rescue attempt for Leia, Ben confronts Darth Vader, his enemy and one-time pupil. Ben holds off Vader long enough for the others to escape, then submits and allows Vader to cut him down. He had completed his mission and started Luke on his Jedi path. Later, Ben appeared as a force ghost on Dagobah where Luke was training under Yoda. He shows Luke that people merge with the force when they die, and tells Luke that Leia is his sister. Ben later makes an appearance as a force ghost at the end of Return of the Jedi, joined by Yoda and Anakin. During the original showings, Anakin would appear as a fatherly old man. However, following the release of the Prequel Trilogy, George Lucas changed the scene to show a younger version of Anakin as he was just before his fall to the Dark side. Love - Obi-Wan believes that love is essential for what it means to be a Jedi. Compassion is needed to make decisions for the good of society. However, no matter how much love Obi-Wan has for someone or something, he is always prepared to do what is right for the greater good. Obi-Wan's Philosophy (Prequel)
Obi-Wan is basically the model Jedi. Powerful, humble, wise, loyal, skilled, patient, peaceful, etc. "He's a phenomenal pilot who doesn't like to fly, a warrior who would rather not fight, and a negotiator without peer who would prefer to sit in a cave and meditate." However, despite all these things, he feels that the greatest part of his life is his best friend and one-time Padawan Anakin. Rigid discipline - this philosophy is evident in the young Kenobi of The Phantom Menace, in contrast to his master, Qui-Gon Jinn, Kenobi does not relax, follows the Jedi Council's orders to the letter, and frowns on anything outside the beaten path. Following Qui-Gon's death and taking Anakin as his Padawam, Obi-Wan starts to loosen up and relax, transforming into the ultimate Jedi his master said he would be. Jedi philosophy - Obi-Wan, raised as a Jedi from infancy, is deeply ingrained with Jedi philosophy. He has been taught to listen to the Force, for it will guide him, to not form attachments, for they will cloud his judgement, and to protect and bring peace to those who cannot protect themselves. Qui-Gon - Kenobi's old master, Qui-Gon Jinn died at the end of The Phantom Menace, slain by Darth Maul, who in turn was slain by Obi-Wan. Qui-Gon, powerful and wise Jedi Knight who would already be on the Council, constantly disobeyed orders and went out of his way to help others, much like Anakin. He tried to teach his rigid Padawan to relax and let the Force guide him, saying that everything he did was dedicated to the Living Force, an aspect of the Force different from the Unifying Force which mainstream Jedi followed. Following his death, Qui-Gon spoke to Yoda through the Force, telling him that he had found a way to resist merging with the Force, allowing him to remain himself for all of eternity, studying the Force as a Jedi. Qui-Gon proceeded to become Yoda's teacher, and instructed him to return home to Dagobah, where he would wait until someone worthy to serve the Force came to him. Anakin - Obi-Wan first met Anakin on Tatooine when he ws nine years old. At the time, he dismissed him as one of his master's side-projects, one of the things that would hold his master back from mastership. Qui-Gon told Obi-Wan that he believed Anakin was the prophesied Chosen One who would bring balance to the Force, and just before he died, made Obi-Wan promise he would train Anakin in the ways of the Jedi. During their time together, Anakin and Obi-Wan grew closer than brothers. Obi-Wan saw much of his former master in Anakin. Though Anakin constantly disobeyed the Council and his master, much to the chagrin of Kenobi, they always managed to work things out as a team. Anain taught Kenobi to relax, rubbing off on him and loosening his conformity. This helped Obi-Wan on his way to become a legendary Jedi. The two were so close that even though Obi-Wan had suspicions of the love between Anakin and Padme, he did not inform the Council for fear that they would expell Anakin from the Order. Darth Vader Philosophy
Vader, the broken and twisted form of Anakin Skywalker, lives only to serve his master Darth Sidious and the Dark side. His tranformation began as a quest for power and a way to save his beloved Padme, but now he has nothing left besides his master, whom he both loves and hates. He has lost his former life, his wife, his friends, his body, etc. Luke Skywalker Philosophy
Luke grew up hearing stories of his father, who traveled the stars. At the age of twenty-something, Luke and his uncle bought droids from Jawas. One of these droids contained a hologram for Ben Kenobi. Luke knew of Ben, a crazy old hermit who lived in the mountains, but he did not know of Ben's origins until he visited his home. Ben tells Luke that his father was a Jedi, one of the most powerful that had ever lived. Jedi - Luke places his Jedi training first, resisting the Dark side no matter how much Palpatine or Vader tempted him. However, Luke started his training at a very, very late age. This had exposed him to various emotions and wrong decisions not characteristic of Jedi. After defeating the Empire, Luke brought these characteristics into play when he recreated the Jedi Order. Friends - much like his father, Luke always put his friends first. After losing Ben on the first Death Star, Luke's sense of protection became more evident. He and his friends grew closer and closer over the course of their adventures, and Luke always tried to save them whenever they were in danger. Vader - Though Luke was originally repulsed by the idea that Darth Vader was his father, he eventually comes to terms with this revelation and attempted to bring Vader back to the Light side of the Force. Luke cared for his father, and realizes that underneath his mask, anakin was just a broken old man enslaved by the Emperor. Ben - Though Vader rememebers Ben as his Old Jedi master, he harbors no affedtions towards him. The twisted form of Skywalker that is Vader is now powered by anger and hate, allowing him to kill Ben in memory of past illusions. Palpatine - Palpatine is the closest thing to a friend Vader has left. Vader knows that Palpatine is the one responsible for what he has become, but Paplatine did save Anakin's life and teach him the ways of the Dark side. Palpatine tricked Anakin into killing all his friends, but he is the last connection Vader has to his old life. Later, after seeing Sidious torturing Luke, Anakin returns to the Light side and kills Palpatine. Luke and Leia - Vader did not realize that he had children until after Palpatine told him that Luke and Leia were his children. He though the babies had died with Padme. However, Palpatine told Vader of his children after Vader tortured Leia in an attempt to extract the location of the secret Rebel Alliance base. Vader attempted to save the lives of his children by telling Sidious that they would be valuable additions to his panel if they could be turned to the Dark side. On Bespin during their first battle, Vader tells Luke that he is his father after cutting off his hand, and asks him to join Vader on the Dark side, where they would rule as father and son. (Remember, years before Anakin lost his hand to Count Dooku during their first fight. Years from now, Luke will cut off Vader's hand during their fight on the second Death Star.) GQ: How did the philosophies of Anakin, Obi-Wan, Han, and Luke affect the narrative of Star Wars?
