    I also liked seeing more plo koon. He was pretty insignificant in ROTS for the most part. He played a pretty big role in the CW. So I think he is practically introducing there if you know what i mean

    Other than Ahsoka, I loved Kit Fisco for... obvious reasons

    Also, Aayla Secura. I loved that she was balanced between having struggled through attachment and was open about it with Ahsoka. Most Jedi would be like "just let go" but she understood. Also I loved her in the 501st journal...

    Besides the obvious (which is Ahsoka), for me it was also my first introduction to the new canon Quinlan Vos. I know he had a past in The Phantom Menace and he become a fan favourite through legend comics. I thought the Dark Disciple novel, in which he is one of the two mains, was one of the best Star Wars stories I have read so far. The book is based on a non-released 8 episode story arc of Clone Wars. It is sad that we never saw that in animation. It would have been epic. Luckily the book is written in a way that makes it feel like the Clone Wars episodes.

    I also really liked Byph (the Ithorian) and Gungi (the Wookiee) in the youngling episodes. I am curious if we will ever find out what happened to those younglings.

    It has to be Pong Krell. and Bariss Offee. I love the Umbara arc and having him fall to the Dark Side was fantastic: we could see the darker side of war - people's ideals being crushed and changing them drastically. Heck: Bariss shows puts an emphasis on this even more as we had seen her be a by-the-book Jedi like Luminara. That made it hurt even more when she was revealed to be the one behind the bombing.

    Yes! These two characters and their pull towards the dark is what kept a lot of viewers on their toes about a lot of jedi. I can easily say that the Umbara Arc is a top 3 for me in all of CW. I mean, who doesn’t like a guy with 4 lightsabers. Im not an evil person, but I must say, the evilness of Pong Krell is incredible. Like incredible in a bad way lol. He made the clones shoot at each other with illusion and deception. He was purely evil. And with another new jedi, Barris Offee, we got to see how any jedi, with the proper perspective on things, can turn to the dark side. And with that Ahoska bombing arc, it showed how flawed the jedi can be and how easy it is to turn away from the light. Heck, it also shows how hard it can be to RESIST the dark. Anyway, im liking your thinking here @*Definetly Not A Sith Lord*

    Exactly! The Clone Wars added a more human layer to the conflict which I feel was not shown enough in the prequels. The show managed to show the struggle of believing in something that everyone else (in the Jedi Temple) takes as obvious good while people are dying all around the Galaxy. The keepers of peace that fail at keeping peace, as Satine had said it to Obi-Wan.

    Now that I think of it: there was also that Mon Calamari Jedi friend of Kit Fisto who died in Grievous' lair. If I remember correctly he addmited that he changed, showing that Jedi are more than just perfect monks. They are human and if they are not perfect, then they can be wrong.

    Right. You are thinking of Nadar Vebb by the way :) And this leads into the statement and idea that, over time, the jedi simply lost their way. The whole Clone War caused them to loose sight about their purpose. They failed to observe that peace cannot be achieved through dreadful wars. And with the whole situation with Nadar Vebb, it does show how a jedi takes a lot of character. So being cocky like Nadar only proves common weaknesses among these jedi. Good talk.
