"Even the Sith would think twice before attacking Dantooine. There are many Jedi here, including several of the most powerful masters of the order. There is great strength within this place."
— Jedi Master Bastila Shan
To be Jedi in Dantooine means to be the protectors of this community, we are not the government, we are only the defenders of this planet, working together with the Civilians and the Dantooine Guards, for to keep Dantooine's peace ... because this is our compromise with this community .. and to keep Dantooine's freedom, our hope against the Sith domination in the galaxy.
"Jedi do not fight for peace. That's only a slogan, and is as misleading as slogans always are. Jedi fight for civilization, because only civilization creates peace. We fight for justice because justice is the fundamental bedrock of civilization: an unjust civilization is built upon sand. It does not long survive a storm."
— Jedi Master Mace Windu

For Centuries, the Jedi Enclave was left, after many wars, the Jedi order was eradicated from Dantooine, the commerce and presence of Dantooine in the Galaxy go down, but now, the ruins of the buildings, the commerce and the Dantooine society were restored by the new community.
This community in majority human farmers, they start to be the main settlers of this planet, with the time, The community established a government based on the principles of the Republic, learning from the lessons of the past, what it meant the Sith Empire presence on Dantooine, that led to the community almost total destruction.
Now this new Dantooine government, has its main objective into strengthen the economy of Dantooine planet, working hard and closely with the Dantooine Guards, the DJE Jedi to maintain peace and security on Dantooine.
Being in the Post-Legacy era, while the Dantooine Community was working in the restoration of the planet, a group of Jedi from the Jedi Order of Ruusan, left the planet to establish a new Jedi Order on Dantooine, with the objective of restoring the Historic Jedi Enclave.
Many Jedi left Ruusan and went towards to Dantooine, to support the local settlers and to reconstruct the Jedi Enclave there.
A first Jedi meeting was made there, that was the beginning of all the things. By the will of the Force, and with the participation of the main Leaders of this new Jedi Enclave, the called "The Family", The first Council Masters decided to rebuild the Dantooine Jedi Enclave and restore the Jedi Presence on Dantooine.
This meeting was made with the presence of Master Don Gaton, Master Caronte Blanco, Master Edwina Heron (Eds), the Jedi Knights Mark Ordram, Stallion Raiden, and the Padawans Zero Dragone, Marc Raiden, Brenna Hastings and Blade Kamala.

The First Generation
The Main leader of the Jedi Order on Dantooine was Master Don Gaton, Being a Jedi Master Former in NOJ, he decided to lead the new group of Jedi, for to build a Jedi Order in Dantooine, establishing the base of the DJE Jedi Academy, then, the first DJE generation of Jedi Knights continued his work on Dantooine, keeping the fundamentals and improving other things on the Jedi Order.
Master Gaton established the bases of this new community, and defined the role of the Jedi Order on Dantooine, his vision and his dedication on Dantooine will never be forgotten.
He was a real example of a real Jedi, and the example to follow for the new generations of Jedi in DJE.
The firsts DJE Jedi Knight defined the Jedi Academy training , working in the knowledge of the Force, the Force users abilities, the sabre skills, the discipline and vision of the Jedi Order. They defined the policy against the Darksiders, for to protect Dantooine against the Sith menace, because they were witness in the past, than how the Sith was allowed in other planets and at the end, how that planets fall under Sith domination.
It was not an easy decision, but their goal was clear from the beginning, Having the approval of the Dantooine Government, it was very needed for to bring Hope in the galaxy, for to believe in the restoration of a Republic in the Galaxy, and the freedom against the Sith domination.
"With the Force there are two paths, good and evil, ... one may take, nothing in between. One leads to a full life, no matter the years. The other is most assuredly a short path that leads to a certain solitary end. One should choose wisely."

The Time of Darkness
But this beautiful project called Dantooine not always had happiness all the time, Dantooine lived his most difficult time, when some of the Jedi Patriarchs of the Order decided to move away from Dantooine for personal reasons.
Was in that time, than Master Caronte Blanco decide to lead the Jedi Order with the help of the other few ones, Master Mark Ordram, Master Blade Kamala, Master Kaz Haiku, and Sir RavenClaw Karu.
Being few ones on Dantooine, they start to work in the bases of the Jedi Order of Dantooine, that work was very difficult, because the moral of some ones go down, but with heart and decision, The Masters with patience start to recovery "The Family" concept again, because they know than without that concept, Dantooine will not exist.
"One cannot avoid the darkness unless one knows where it lies and the routes that lead to it."
— Jedi Master Tolaris Shim
In the worst time on Dantooine, after few days than some of the Jedi Patriarches left Dantooine, the Jedi Master Stallion Raiden betrayed DJE.
Stallion, being manipulated by the Darksiders, made his own army, for attack Dantooine in a weakest moment.
It was a time of darkness over Dantooine, Stallion was leading Darksiders and Dark troopers against DJE. They started searching to find the new ones alone on Dantooine, for strike them, in coward way, when the few Masters were not around, searching to make the Dantooine moral fall down, and for that, Dantooine was under attack constantly for some days.
The brave Jedi on Dantooine tried to defend the planet, sacrificing their life's with honour, being outnumbered, the Jedi challenged them on each attack, but for them, to fight against the fallen Jedi, their brothers in the past, it was very difficult.
Only when Master Blade Kamala, in front of everybody there, ready for to fight again, He spokes to Stallion about of the reasons of his selfish acts against his old Jedi family, Master Blade offers to him to sacrifice himself (Blade), Leaving Dantooine Exiled, with the condition than Stallion stop the madness of his acts against Dantooine, and only in that moment, Stallion, seeing that his best friend was resigning everything about Dantooine, he ordered to stop the attack, and the dark Forces obeyed him.

It was not an easy work, the Sith tried to destroy that work many times, but Many times also they failed, because Jedi Knights, Padawans with honour, with their sabres, protecting and defending Dantooine against the Sith Attacks made by Sith Lords, but, these Braves Jedi show them, each time, than when a group of Jedi has a real goal in their heart, nobody can destroy or take them that.

The Fourth Generation (Present Day)
After Master Artiste, Master Lau, Master Sha'ira and Keiran departures, Dantooine and DJE itself have been going through a period of decline followed by a slow renovation process. The Jedi Enclave went through a difficult period in terms of activity, but its community and most loyal members hold strong and decided to carry on the DJE Legacy and so forming a new generation of Jedi.
The 4th generation was born.
At the end of a long period of rebuilding and re-organization, a new Council was nominated.
Council members are: Master RavenClaw Karu, Master Thot Mistwalker, Master Destiny Vuissent, Master Neren Valis, Master Otacon Skinstad, Master Valery Goldshark

This new Generation of Council Masters in DJE, has the duty of to keep the DJE academy in a highest level, having clear than the challenge in this time will be major, and the Galaxy needs the presence and support of the Jedi, and Dantooine needs to be a reference of why the Jedi is necesary for to keep the justice and peace, against the Sith Empire.
The Jedi Order of Dantooine, works so hard for don't allow the Sith Domination over Dantooine. but the price of that is to see than DJE has many detractors, many organizations and groups than don't see them with good eyes, often accused of being too aggressive with whom only represent the dominant power in the galaxy or the servants of the Sith Empire,
DJE will not betray their principles and values as Jedi, they will not betray the will of the Force. The Jedi Order of Dantooine will be firm against the selfish desire of glory, power and domination over others, against the Sith Empire, than offers us a false peace, with the objective of eradicate the only ones than really can make to others challenge them, the Jedi.
The Dantooine Jedi Enclave is a Jedi Order than is defined in the same standard hierarchy used by the Jedi Orders in the past, the leaders of the Jedi order are the DJE Council Masters, with them are defined the principles and values than govern the Jedi Order and their members, but, exist a difference with other Jedi Order structures, because in DJE, the Chamber of Jedi Knights and Masters work together, They Define and vote for each important matter than the Councils or the Jedi Order, needs to define for the future of DJE.
