|This article details the Jedi Master Prestige Class found in the Core Rulebook. You may be looking for the Threats of the Galaxy character of the same name, the Jedi Master.|
Jedi Masters represent the pinnacle of the Jedi order. They are Jedi who are both strong enough in The Force, and patient enough in life to pass on their skills by teaching a new generation of Jedi. The journey from Padawan Learner to Jedi Master usually takes decades, and many who start upon the path never reach its final destination.
Becoming a Jedi Master requires patience, inner strength, wisdom, and a deep connection to, and understanding of, The Force. Further, a Jedi Knight usually doesn't become a Jedi Master until they train a student to completion. Jedi are allowed only one Padawan at a time, and the training of a single Padawan can take years.
The most respected Jedi Masters are invited by their peers (And, in some cases, their former Masters) to join them on the Jedi Council. Those who join the Council use their wisdom and influence to instruct others in the ways of The Force, and preserve peace in the galaxy. The Jedi Council is also tasked with identifying Force-sensitive children across the galaxy, and offering them instructions in the Jedi Force Tradition. These lessons are fairly rudimentary- usually intended to teach a student "The Basics" until he or she is old enough to receive formal training as a Padawan.
During the Rise of the Empire era, the Jedi Council would confer the title of Jedi Master upon those deemed qualified to teach others in the ways of The Force. During the Rebellion era and the New Jedi Order era, Jedi require no such approval; however, they must adhere to the tenets of the Jedi Code to become Jedi Masters.

Jedi Masters are immune to Fear effects.
Serenity[edit | edit source]
You may enter a brief meditative state as a Full-Round Action. You may remain in this trance as long as you wish, and you are still aware of your surroundings; however, you are otherwise Helpless and cannot perform any other Actions. Upon emerging from the trance (As a Swift Action), your first attack roll or Use the Force skill check made in the following round is considered to be a Natural 20.
Talents[edit | edit source]
At every odd-numbered level (1st, 3rd, 5th, and so on), the Jedi Master selects a Talent. The Jedi Master must meet the prerequisites (If any) of the chosen Talent. No Talent can be selected more than once unless expressly indicated. A Jedi Master can select a Talent from one of the Talent Trees (Jedi Master) or Force Talent Trees (Including Force Tradition Talent Trees).
