Name: Standard Jedi Temple Guard

Rank: Jedi Temple Guard

Tier: High 3

Background: The Jedi Temple Guard was an ancient, honorable heritage within the hallowed halls of the Jedi Temple that reported to head of security Cin Drallig. The Temple Guards were anonymous Jedi Knights who committed themselves to the Order. The Guards would hide inside the robes and identity-concealing masks, which was the grand symbol of emotional detachment required. Each mask concealed a comlink and an in-helmet scanner. The Jedi Temple Guard's robes incorporated layers of armourweave to provide them with an effective defense against blaster bolts and lightsabers. Temple Guards carried lightsaber pikes—thick, double-bladed lightsabers that produced a yellow blade. Each lightsaber was assigned to the guards in order to help maintain the anonymity of their ranks.

The Jedi Temple Guards saw use in the Day of Chaos, defending the Jedi Temple from the masses of Coruscant. However, many were slain in the incident.

Weaknesses: The Temple Guard is rigid and unyielding, and as such, they have several exploitable weaknesses. For example, they never engage in first combat; simply igniting their blades as a warning and waiting for the opponent to approach. One could exploit this heavily, laying traps or preparing a more powerful technique to gain an advantage. Lastly, the Lightsaber Pike is less effective at blocking blasters, and as such, overwhelming blaster fire comes highly recommended against these opponents.
