    Jedi Order (New)
Search for 'Jedi Order (New)' on Amazon

At about the time of the formation of the Galactic Alliance, Luke Skywalker won a long political battle with the central government. He formally re-established the Jedi Council, which had been absent from Galactic affairs since the closing days of the Clone Wars. However, it was distinct from its most immediate predecessor in that it was not comprised by Jedi alone. To allow for greater openness—and thus to protect against another Jedi Purge ever happening again—fully half of the Council were not Jedi. Instead they were politicians and other public figures. Skywalker thus hoped to wed the fate of the Jedi firmly to the fate of the larger society.

Still, this initial effort at greater public accountability seems to have been reversed by the events of the Yuuzhan Vong War. At the conclusion of those events, Skywalker pulled the Council to Ossus, and withdrew support from public duty. No longer would the Jedi be even semi-official protectors of the government.

This policy appears to have continued even after Luke's death. In the events of Legacy, the Jedi Order is comprised of beings from all sides of the series' central conflict. To be a Jedi in the time of Legacy is to follow the Force as you personally see it—not to be the "hired lightsaber" of any one government.

Note that the New Jedi Order is a long-lived institution, with several different phases. Early New Jedi Order members may stand for things later members might balk at. And, certainly, it's quite a different organization from the Old Jedi Order
