Appearing in "Balance"
Synopsis for "Balance"
Jedi master Qui-Gon Jinn is on the planet Bri’n mediating in a dispute between two indigenous humanoid races. The story opens with Qui-Gon and “The Priestess of the World” Mistress Th’er under attack and outnumbered. Having been surrounded they are both rescued by Obiwan Kenobi return to the planet of Coruscant. Priestess Th’er berates Qui-Gon for escaping the planet rather than destroying the enemy saying that the reputation of the Jedi as Great Warriors has been called into question and suggests that Qui-Gon’s actions are more like cowardice. Later in the Jedi temple Qui-Gon meets with Yoda. He tells Yoda of his concerns regarding the reputation of the Jedi as being Great Warriors and that little is understood of the purpose of the Jedi. He suggests that the Jedi are used as weapons of the Republic but Yoda disagrees.
Qui-Gon decides that he needs a place to go for communion. He boards his ship and lets the force take him to a place where he can find the answers he seeks. The force takes Qui-Gon to an uncharted world on which he begins to explore. Once on the surfaced it is apparent the planet has a corruption or darkness. He wonders whether he has been brought here to stop it or learn from it. He goes into a state of meditation during which, in a vision, the planets’ flora begins to change shape into humanoid like beings and immediately attack Qui-Gon. In his vision, Qui-Gon is able to defeat the beings. Qui-Gon realises that violence sows the seeds of the dark side and if unchecked the Jedi could become that which they fight against.
