The Shadow Jedi ( Or the Grey Jedi Poem)

Neither dark nor light, but both all the same.
Neither hero nor villain, but both all the same.
Neither balanced nor chaotic, but both all the same.
Neither alive nor dead, but both all the same.

He or she can hate and love,
He or she walks the thin path between the sides.
Hated by the Sith, scorned but the Jedi,
May not even be accepted by ones like them.

They don't have the heart to do dark things,
They don't have the will to do light things,
They are nothing but shadows,
They are invisible to the universe.

There is no code for them,
There is no faith,
There are no laws,
There are no explainations.

No one dares to speak of them.
This is not related to my Atton Rand fan fic.

I had read this guys idea of the Grey Jedi Code, and I wanted to express my idea of a Shadow Jedi. I think perhaps there is a differance between a Shadow Jedi and a Grey Jedi. To me and from what I have read in some random, strange Grey Jedi cults on the net, Grey Jedi are created by people who want to try and have characters be against Light Jedi and to try and be smarter then them, and have the freedom of the Dark Jedi. They make it seem there is a balance, a perfect place between light and dark. Rather arrogant if you ask me, there are many shades of grey between black and white, and even black and white can have different shades. Every artist knows that.

I only put Grey in the title to seperate it from my fanfic and to draw the attention of Grey Jedi fans.

The original idea of Jedi and Sith belongs to George Lucas. This here is just my idea of what a Shadow Jedi would be.

This reminds me of a comic that takes place during the Clone Wars where Obi-Wan is sent to go work with a group of Grey Jedi who have agreed to help the Council take down an arms factory (or something like that) and end up dying one by one so that Obi-Wan can complete his goal. To me the saddest part of the story is that they die for the good of the galaxy knowing full well that in the end they'll get no thanks and probably won't even be remembered.

Wow, I haven't watched clones wars since I got rid of my Direct TV box. That has been my one regret as it seems they don't show that one online.

sounds like a really good episode there.

It's not an episode of the show, it was in a collection of one-shot comics about random events during the Clone Wars. I wish I could remember what it was called, because there were some truely awesome moments such as the Grey Jedi story I mentioned, as well as a fight between Anakin and Dirge. The stuff in the show really can't compare to the events in the books and comics.

if you ever find out please do tell me so I can track down these comics.
DarthLych Jan 20, 2012  Hobbyist Writer
No problem, I think I got the comics from my library, so I'll do some searching around and if I find them I'll let you know. ^_^
I guess I would be a Grey in that universe, openly at peace but at the same time not afraid to throw a few Lightning attacks all the same.
Great work, I think it's a perfect description of the Grey/Shadow Jedi

Interesting take on the "not one nor the other" type of Force-user. Between Jedi, Shadow Jedi, Grey Jedi, Dark Jedi, and Sith, I think the major points of the spectrum have been covered!

I try.
That's really cool. To me, the meter is a bit clumsy and awkward, but it doesn't matter because the content is so interesting. I've read a ton of StarWars books, and this reminds me of Kyp Astor (I think that was his name), who despised the Sith and Empire but became rebellious of Luke and his training. Very cool mood and idea.

Kudos! :boogie:
