Bastila Shan was a Jedi Sentinel of the Old Republic.
"This Jedi ferrets out deceit and injustice, bringing it to light."
Dorak

The Jedi Sentinels were a sub-sect of the Jedi Order that sought a balance between the two extremes of the Jedi, the Jedi Consulars and the Jedi Guardians. They possessed adequate combat skills and had somewhat extensive knowledge of the Force. Along with this blended knowledge of both combat and the Force, they also possessed exceptional non-Force skills, such as in the fields of security, computers, stealth techniques, demolitions, repair or medicine. These skills tended to take the forefront in their middle-road approach to problems; while a Guardian might bash down a locked door and a Consular simply knock, a Sentinel would instead pick the lock. A Sentinel's default lightsaber color is yellow, but like guardians and consulars, is up to the individual.

History

Sentinels also practiced a form of Force Immunity that crossed Force-based training with increased mental conditioning, allowing them to better withstand outside mental influences, including Force-based attacks. This allowed them protection from such powers as fear, stun and paralytic effects. Jedi Knights who followed this path were often dispatched to regions across the galaxy in order to root out the dark side and to investigate unusual concentrations of the Force, similar to the Jedi Shadow and Jedi investigator. Traditionally, they wielded yellow bladed lightsabers, though this was not dictated as a rule of the Order. By the time of the Great Jedi Purge the title of 'Sentinel' appeared to have fallen into disuse.

The most notable Jedi Sentinel was Bastila Shan who, while still a Padawan, mastered the ancient and difficult art of Battle Meditation, using it to great effect to aid the Galactic Republic during the Jedi Civil War.

Behind the scenes

The use of the term Jedi Sentinel, first introduced in Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic as one of the Jedi starting classes, was solely created for the game, and has only recently appeared in the pen and paper Saga Edition of the Star Wars Roleplaying Game as a Talent Tree for the Jedi class. This class is mostly signified by its use of yellow lightsaber blades. In Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lords, the prestige class that corresponds to Jedi Sentinel is Jedi Watchman. The dark side counterpart is Sith Assassin; it should be noted that Jedi Watchman also appears in other canon works, such as the Tales of the Jedi comics and others. The class presumably became canon in the Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic comic series along with Jedi Guardian and Consular.

In the Star Wars Miniatures set Champions of the Force the Jedi Sentinel class is represented by Visas Marr. Although she was the Sith apprentice to Darth Nihilus, she was still of the Sentinel class and later redeemed, becoming an apprentice to the Jedi Exile.

In Star Wars Galaxies, there are two hidden Jedi Enclaves on Yavin 4, one dark and one light. These could be used by the Jedi of Galaxies as meeting places. Each enclave was guarded by two CL 500 Jedi Sentinels, dark and light, and served as protectors for the meetings should an opposing side try to disrupt them. Since Chapter 7, the Sentinels have been removed and the enclaves serve as sites for those who want to see the ruins of both.
