Yoda (896 BBY – 4 ABY) was a celebrated member of the Jedi, a group of warriors who protected the galaxy over a thousand generations. He served as Grand Master of the Jedi Order during the final years of the Galactic Republic. Despite being only 66cm tall, Yoda was a fearsome warrior who possessed exceptional lightsaber skills that almost matched his legendary wisdom. After the evil Sith overthrew the Galactic Republic with the aid of former Jedi and traitor Anakin Skywalker, Yoda went into hiding on the planet Dagobah where he led a hermitic life and continued to train under the ways of the Force. Before his death, Yoda helped train Anakin’s son, Luke, who would eventually lead the rebels to victory against the Empire and restore order to the Force.
