Re: Can a "True Jedi" carry a blaster?
That's like saying "Can a true metal head have short hair?" I wouldn't want to see someone call the singer to Pantera non-metal.
So, I'd say they can have a blaster.
I honestly don't see a correlation to this topic.
I see what youre trying to say though, yet a lightsaber is significantly more important to a Jedi then long hair is to a metal head. A lightsaber is a Jedi's life, an extension of his body.
So luke skywalker is not a true jedi?
you people all seem to forget that a lightsaber is not ideal for all situations, when use of a lightsaber will endager others, or draw unwanted attention to themselves or the order
When a lightsaber is not ideal for a situation (which is rare) then the Jedi can rely on his force powers. The ability to move things at your will or confuse the minds of others with a thought is much more potent then a blaster.
Don't be too proud of this technological terror you've
constructed. The ability to destroy a planet is insignificant next to
the power of the Force.
Darth Vader puts it well here. Of course, a blaster does not compare to the Death Star, but its the same concept. If you cannot trust in your lightsaber, then you can trust in the Force.
And about Luke using a lightsaber in the books. At first, he wasnt one of the best lightsaber users out there... he trained with only a droid. He didnt have the extensive experience with lightsaber's or the Force that the other Jedi had. So, at times he probably had to make up for it with that.
