I have a bone to pick that has been bothering me for years. It is with the term "Dark Jedi." Now admittedly I'm getting kind of obsessive and nerdy here, however, I'd like to state my case! I'd like to hear feedback as well. The term "Dark Jedi" is an oxymoron. The term is used in the EU and is even in the Star Wars wiki, however, it is not used on the official site and is never mentioned in any of the films or in anything that is "canon" and I believe it is for good reason. A "Jedi" is a force user who uses their powers for good, who has passed the trials and has been accepted into the Jedi order. There is no way a Jedi can be "dark", because the Jedi are selfless. The words "Jedi" and "Dark" can not be used to describe the same person, since they represent opposite values. ...That would be like someone who believed in the teachings of Jesus but worships Satan - It makes no sense. Just because a character can use the force, it does not make them a Jedi or Sith. They have to follow the rules and be accepted into the Jedi or Sith organizations. There is no organization called "Dark Jedis." A character might claim they are a Jedi or Sith because they can use the force, however, they are simply not until they are accepted into the one of the orders. The term "Dark Jedi" has been used to describe a "bad guy" who can use the force but is not a Sith. I get this, however, a character who uses the force for evil is farther than anything from being a Jedi, and therefore should not be called one in any way shape or form. In conclusion, instead of using the term "Dark Jedi" I propose we use the following: DARK FORCE USER or SITH FOLLOWER These terms describe characters who can use the force to some extent, for their own personal gain. They may or may not be Sith. They may deceive those around them by claiming that they are Sith even if they are not. Some Dark Force Users may be called "Fallen Jedi" if they were once part of the Jedi order, which basically means "Former Jedi." To be clear, these characters are no longer Jedi, just selfish Force-sensitive beings. ***** Since I'm doing this, the term "Rogue Jedi" also does not make sense because if the character has gone rogue, it implies that they are not part of the organization. If they are not part of the Jedi organization then they are not a Jedi. Therefore, they should be called "Rogue Force Users" or "Rogue Jedi Followers." Here's a couple more terms: Light Force User: (or Jedi Follower) A character who can use the force to some extent and uses it for selfless purposes. This character may or may not be a Jedi. Force User: (or Force-sensitive) Any character who can use the force in any way, for good or for evil.
