Star Wars Jedi Lineages

Jedi Lineages, Star Wars

Star Wars is well-known for its Jedi Lineages. Though, it is often hard to decipher which Jedi Lineage is what. That is why we’re here. We have a simple way of breaking them down without getting too confusing.

Each of the Jedi Lineages begins with Grand Master Yoda, as the Jedi on these lists are taught mainly by him during the days of the Jedi Order before they were assigned to other Knights or Masters.

Before we begin, this post will only focus on Jedi Lineages, not Sith or Sith-aligned ones. There will be a few that we’ll explain later, as specific individuals were not technically Jedi. Also, we’ll only be going off confirmed characters. We all need to note that everything in this post is Canon and not from Legends.

Dooku’s Jedi Lineage

So, let’s begin with Count Dooku. During the audio drama Dooku: Jedi Lost, it is revealed he had another apprentice before he took on Qui-Gon Jinn. His name was Rael Averross. Dooku also took on another Jedi Apprentice who was not named the year before the Clone Wars started.

So, Dooku’s lineage goes as follows:

  • Yoda
  • Dooku
  • Rael Averross
  • Qui-Gon Jinn
  • Unidentified Jedi Padawan

Please note that this is not the entire lineage, as two of his padawans had Jedi lineages of their own, making him the grandmaster of several other Jedi.

Rael Aveross’s Jedi Lineage

Dooku’s former Padawan before Qui-Gon, Rael Aveross, had his own lineage. He had an apprentice named Pim Pianna. Pim was killed almost 30 years before the beginning of the Clone Wars. Aveross took his apprentice’s death hard.

  • Yoda
  • Dooku
  • Rael Aveross
  • Pim Pianna

Qui-Gon Jinn

One of the biggest success stories to come out of Dooku’s Jedi Lineage is Qui-Gon Jinn. Being the fallen Jedi Master’s second of three apprentices, Jinn had a line of Jedi that followed after him. Not including his brief and informal teaching of Anakin Skywalker, Qui-Gon took on Obi-Wan Kenobi, who later took on both Anakin and his son Luke as students.

After his death, Qui-Gon taught Yoda how to become a Force Ghost.

  • Yoda (Qui-Gon taught how to become a Force Ghost)
  • Dooku
  • Qui-Gon Jinn
  • Obi-Wan Kenobi

Obi-Wan Kenobi

Obi-Wan had a unique Jedi Lineage. He was taught by Dooku’s second apprentice, Qui-Gon Jinn and became the teacher of Anakin Skywalker after Qui-Gon’s death by Darth Maul on Naboo. His master’s death deeply affected Kenobi, and his reluctance to let Anakin dig into his abilities was likely due to how powerful his apprentice would become.

After Anakin fell to the dark side, Obi-Wan was assigned to watch Anakin’s young son, Luke, grow up to ensure he was safe. He would later take on the role of Luke’s first Jedi teacher.

  • Yoda
  • Dooku
  • Qui-Gon Jinn
  • Obi-Wan Kenobi
  • Anakin Skywalker
  • Luke Skywalker

Anakin Skywalker

Anakin might be chosen, but his Jedi lineage is incredibly fascinating, as it was initially supposed to end with him. He never wanted his own apprentice, but Obi-Wan and Yoda forced his hand when Ahsoka Tano was assigned to him against his wishes.

  • Yoda
  • Dooku
  • Qui-Gon Jinn
  • Obi-Wan Kenobi
  • Anakin Skywalker
  • Ahsoka Tano

Ahsoka Tano

Ahsoka left the Jedi Order before Anakin could complete her training. However, we are including her here because she takes an apprentice, but not in the way you’d think. In the second trailer for the Ahsoka series, Sabine Wren, the Mandalorian warrior, refers to her as “master.”

From what we can tell, Sabine is not Force Sensitive, but Ahsoka likely took over her lightsaber training from Kanan Jarrus after he died.

  • Yoda
  • Dooku
  • Qui-Gon Jinn
  • Obi-Wan Kenobi
  • Anakin Skywalker
  • Ahsoka Tano
  • Sabine Wren

Luke Skywalker

Having a famous father is not something Luke could have anticipated, let alone that he would become the second apprentice of Anakin’s best friend and former master, Obi-Wan Kenobi. Luke would take on a Jedi Lineage of his own, including his twin sister, Leia and his nephew, Ben. For a time, he would also train Grogu.

  • Yoda (grandmaster and second teacher after Obi-Wan’s death)
  • Dooku
  • Qui-Gon Jinn
  • Obi-Wan Kenobi
  • Luke Skywalker
  • Leia Skywalker Organa Solo
  • Grogu
  • Ben Solo
  • Rey

Leia Skywalker Organa Solo

Despite not being a fully trained Jedi, Leia took on the Force-sensitive scavenger Rey, the granddaughter of Sheev Palpatine, after Luke’s death, giving her a Jedi lineage of her own.

  • Yoda
  • Qui-Gon Jinn
  • Obi-Wan Kenobi
  • Luke Skywalker
  • Leia Skywalker Organa Solo
  • Rey

Mace Windu’s Jedi Lineage

Let’s move into the Jedi lineage of Mace Windu. Windu has a fascinating lineage, as he had two Masters alive simultaneously. His first master was Cyslin Myr, and his second master was Yoda.

In turn, he would take an apprentice in Depa Billaba, who would then take on a student in Caleb Dume.

  • Yoda (Windu’s second master)
  • Cyslin Myr
  • Mace Windu
  • Depa Billaba
  • Caleb Dume (later known as Kanan Jarrus)

Caleb Dume/Kanan Jarrus

The final Jedi lineage we wanted to explore is that of Caleb Dume, better known as the Cowboy Jedi, Kanan Jarrus. When you have Mace Windu as a grandmaster, you want to excel however you can.

Kanan would take on Sabine Wren as his lightsaber-training student and Ezra Bridger as his Padawan. Ahsoka would likely take over Wren’s training after Kanan’s death.

  • Cyslin Myr
  • Yoda
  • Mace Windu
  • Depa Billaba
  • Kanan Jarrus
  • Ezra Bridger
  • Sabine Wren (lightsaber training only)
