Star Wars: Apocalypse
Sword of the Jedi
Jaina Solo, only daughter of Han and Leia Organa Solo, is a powerful Jedi Master and current head of the Jedi Council. She made a name for herself as a war hero during the Yuuzhan Vong War, earning her the title “Sword of the Jedi” from the Legendary Jedi Master Luke Skywalker, Jaina’s uncle. It was a role that she took seriously, and has devoted her life to the protection of the Jedi Order and, by extension, the New Republic.
After Luke Skywalker vanished into the outer rim in a self-imposed exile following the events that led to the end of the Yuuzhan Vong War, Jaina took the duty of reforming the scattered Jedi Council at their old temple on Coruscant. For her unmatched heroism and devotion to the order, it was decided that she would take her uncle’s old place at the head of the Jedi Council. Ever since she has worked closely with the New Republic in its efforts to rebuild after the devastating war, as well as to rebuild the Jedi Order’s reputation as honorable defenders of the republic despite the extremely destructive acts taken by several notable Jedi in the waning months of the conflict.
Jaina Solo is widely considered to be the most powerful member of the Jedi Order, with power approaching – or even surpassing – that of her uncle Luke Skywalker.
