13. Kanan Jarrus
Jedi Knight Kanan Jarrus is perhaps one of the most unusual cases in the history of the galaxy. From his unlikely training and apprenticeship of Ezra Bridger to his loving relationship with Ghost captain Hera Syndulla, Jarrus was definitely not a run-of-the-mill Jedi.
Spending his early life at the Jedi Temple on Coruscant, Kanan learned the ways of the Force from a variety of skilled Jedi, including his own Master, Depa Billaba. From sparring with droids to honing his Force abilities, Jarrus soon became one of the most gifted young Jedi at the Temple. His life would soon change, though, when Order 66 was implemented, and he was forced to go into hiding to survive.
Soon, Jarrus would join the Rebels as a member of the Ghost crew, where he would go onto train Ezra Bridger into a great young Jedi. He would also begin his relationship with Hera, and they would eventually have a child together, despite the typical Jedi adage of rejecting love.
At one point during his fight against the Empire, Kanan lost his sight in battle. This never broke his spirit, however, as he continued to wage war as a member of the Ghost crew for a number of pivotal moments, including the mission to Ryloth.
His most shining moment came on Lothal, when he held back a wall of flames to let his friends, including Ezra and Hera, escape certain doom. Sadly, Kanan Jarrus died helping them escape, although the Force gave him his sight back, if just for a moment, allowing him to see Hera one more time.
