Early life and training

(In the game, Jaden can be chosen as male or female. For the sake of consistency, Jaden will be referred to as a male character.)


Jaden builds his first lightsaber without the guidance of a Jedi, an unprecedented event, before joining the Jedi Academy on Yavin IV. He befriends fellow padawan Rosh Penin while travelling to the Academy. After their transport crashes, Jaden and Rosh find their way into a temple, where Jaden sees someone with a large scepter before being knocked out. When he awakes, he meets Jedi Masters Luke Skywalker and Kyle Katarn for the first time. He is sent to the Academy afterwards to begin his training. Jaden and Rosh become Katarn's apprentices.

While his first missions consist in simple errands across the galaxy, complying with the "training by doing" Academy policy, it soon becomes clear that there is a new Sith menace on the horizon, as dark side energy is being siphoned from several places. The Sith cult Disciples of Ragnos, led by Dark Jedi Tavion, attempts to resurrect the Dark Lord of the Sith Marka Ragnos by transferring enough Force energy into his sarcophagus via the Scepter of Ragnos. While investigating, Rosh is captured and later turned to the dark side, and Jaden eventually battles and beats him inside Darth Vader's castle on Vjun. Tavion, an old enemy of Katarn's, interferes by disarming the Jedi Master and his apprentice with the dark side. Tavion pulls Jaden's lightsaber from his grasp and slashes a wall to allow herself and Rosh time to escape. The wall breaks up, and Katarn uses the Force to hold the falling debris while Jaden uses Katarn's lightsaber to cut open the floor to leave. For other uses, see Star Wars Galaxy. ...

After returning to the Academy, Skywalker makes Jaden a Jedi Knight; he builds a new lightsaber (the player can choose to build a standard lightsaber, double-bladed lightsaber or dual sabers), but Katarn warns him that anger leads to the dark side. Rosh later sends a distress signal from an Imperial facility on Taspir III. Katarn and Jaden try to rescue him, despite some reluctance from Jaden. Inside the facility, the pair split up and Jaden finds Rosh first. Rosh turns back from the dark side, but Jaden is to angry to forgive his friend and threatens to kill him. Katarn telepathically tries to convince him not to do it; Alora, Tavion's apprentice, tells him to give in to his anger and kill Rosh. The player has a choice to strike Rosh down (turning to the dark side) or to deactivate their lightsaber (staying on the light side).

Fork in the path

Light side ending

If Jaden stays on the path of light, Alora attacks Jaden and, in the ensuing fight, slices off Rosh's arm. The fight continues and Jaden kills her. Katarn finally arrives and takes Rosh to a bacta tank, instructing Jaden to go to Korriban and stop Tavion from resurrecting Marka Ragnos. With help from the remaining members of the Jedi Academy, Jaden fights his way from the tombs to the valley, killing scores of Sith Reborns in the process. Jaden finally makes it inside Ragnos' chamber and interrupts Tavion before she fully transfers all the Force energy from the scepter to Ragnos. Tavion and Jaden fight a vicious duel in which Tavion simultaneously uses both her lightsaber and the scepter. Jaden defeats her but isn't able to stop her before she resurrects the ancient Dark Lord of the Sith, who possesses her body. A Sith Sword is revealed to be hidden inside the scepter, which Ragnos uses to attack Jaden. After a long duel, Jaden succeeds in defeating Ragnos and destroying the scepter. Ragnos loses his power and leaves Tavion's body to return to his sarcophagus, killing her in the process. After leaving and sealing the tomb, Jaden is greeted by Skywalker and Katarn, and the New Republic sends battleships to destroy the Imperial Star Destroyer in Korriban's orbit.

Jaden is praised for his heroism, and volunteers for another mission. Yavin 4 is one of the many moons of the gas planet Yavin in the Star Wars universe. ...

Dark side ending

If Jaden kills Rosh, Alora invites him to join the Disciples of Ragnos, but he refuses to share the scepter's power and takes it for himself. He kills Alora and departs for Korriban. As he is neither aligned with the Jedi Academy or the Disciples, Jaden fights his way through members of both factions to confront Tavion. After defeating her, he grants her request and kills her. Katarn arrives shortly after and they engage in a vicious lightsaber duel. When Katarn is distracted, Jaden uses the scepter to knock him to the ground and then to throw out the ceiling above him. Scepter in hand, he escapes and hijacks an Imperial Star Destroyer (killing its commander in the process) to leave Korriban. Katarn is rescued by Skywalker, and takes leave of the Academy to search for Jaden; Skywalker mentions he can still sense good in the former knight. The game ends showing Jaden on the hijacked Imperial Star Destroyer looking out into the vastness of space with The Imperial March playing in the background.
