A venerated Jedi in the Order, Qui-Gon Jinn has the respect and admiration of the Jedi Council, if perhaps not always their full confidence. Something of a maverick among his peers, the wise knight believes in living in the moment and trusting his instincts more so than most Jedi. Where the Jedi Order places great value in meditative reflection, Qui-Gon is a man of action, sometimes acting impetuously and recklessly in the eyes of the Council. Known for his occasional disregard of their rules, Qui-Gon has not yet been given a seat among the Jedi's governing elite, though his experience and leadership qualities have almost certainly earned him such an honor.
During the Naboo blockade by Trade Federation forces, Qui-Gon Jinn and his apprentice Obi-Wan Kenobi are dispatched to act as mediators. While young Obi-Wan is nagged by prescient doubts about the mission, Qui-Gon councils him to focus on the moment and not allow anxiety to cloud his thinking and actions. The situation deteriorates quickly when the Federation's treachery is revealed, and Qui-Gon and his apprentice become fugitives along with Naboo's Queen Amidala.
Whilst escorting the Queen to safety on Coruscant, the Jedi inadvertently stumble upon the Force-gifted slave boy Anakin Skywalker, in whom Qui-Gon recognizes the potential for a great destiny. Master Qui-Gon is familiar with an ancient Jedi prophecy concerning the emergence of one who would bring balance to the Force and his feelings tell him that Anakin might be that one. Despite a direct order not to do so by the Jedi Council, who have grave doubts about the boy, Qui-Gon trusts in his feelings and elects to make Anakin his ward, teaching him all that he can about the Force, no matter where that path might lead.
