THE JEDI ARCHIVES AND HOLOCRONS
The true power of the Jedi Order was its knowledge. The Jedi Archives housed the most extensive records in the galaxy, including maps, zoological and botanical information, and technological advancements. It also contained a detailed history of the Jedi, the Sith, and how the Force had been used throughout history. While Jedi had access to much of this knowledge, some of it was only available to Jedi Masters or Council members. For instance, holocrons, cubes that are able to display holographic projections that contain sensitive information, were only available to the twelve masters of the High Jedi Council. One holocron can contain a wealth of information, as shown by the holocron which the bounty hunter Cad Bane (Corey Burton) steals from the Holocron Vault for Emperor Palpatine in The Clone Wars – that single holocron contained the names and information on every Force-sensitive child in the galaxy.
Jedi Master Jocasta Nu (Alethea McGrath) was the keeper of the Jedi Archives during the time of the Clone Wars. After the Clones Wars, much of the information in the Jedi Archives was taken into possession by the Emperor. Some of it, however, scattered throughout the galaxy. The holocrons end up playing a vital role in keeping Jedi knowledge alive after Order 66 and the Great Jedi Purge, including the holocrons that Grakkus the Hutt collected along with other Jedi memorabilia.
