#2. Luke Skywalker

Luke Skywalker is the heartbeat that brought the Jedi back to life. Like his father, Luke could be reckless, impatient, and complain about everything. He cared more the future than the present. But that changed as time what went on.

He allowed himself to mature, to gain experience, to make mistakes, he allowed himself to listen to the Force, rather than himself. There was a lot to overcome for Luke. He had just about every trait his father had.

Luke Skywalker was the center of the large body that defeated the Emperor and the Empire. Luke helped form the New Republic shortly after Return of the Jedi. But decades later Luke would fall to the dark side of the Force by one of the clones of Darth Sidious. But this was very brief, Luke’s friends helped him back to the light side of the Force.

After that Luke founded the New Jedi Order, and began training different beings in the ways of the Force.
