"I was once a Jedi Knight, the same as your father."
Ben Kenobi, to Luke Skywalker[src]

A Jedi Knight referred to an individual who had completed their Jedi training as a student in a Jedi academy.

As a Knight and a full member of the Order, these individuals strove to find peace and maintain justice within the Galactic Republic. Most of the public addressed any Jedi as "Knight".
