Force Wielders, were an enigmatic sentient species of highly Force-Sensitive immortal beings with no fixed form. The Force Wielders were known for their affinity to the Force and it was believed they were god-like beings. The Force Wielders were capable of using the life force around themselves to take on both humanoid and creature forms at-will, including impersonating the form of other individuals, living or dead. A family of Force Wielders, collectively known as the Ones, took sanctuary on the realm-world of Mortis, which some believed was where the Force itself originated from, where they lived as anchorites. The three familial beings the Father, the Daughter, and the Son withdrew from the temporal realm when their power threatened to disrupt the galaxy. The Father acted as the balance between the Daughter and Son, who embodied the Light and Dark sides of the Force, respectively. The siblings were immortal, although only as long as the Father remained alive.

History

God-Like Beings

The Celestials, also known as the Architects, were an ancient civilization who were present long before the dawn of the galactic community. Believed to be responsible for a number of large artifacts and anomalous planetary formations and species placements throughout the galaxy, what little was known of the Celestials came from xenoarchaeology. It was theorized by both the Jedi and the Sith alike that the balance between the Light and Dark sides of the Force was actually under the guidance of the Celestials. Despite their achievements, by a point 30,000 years before the Battle of Yavin, the Celestials were nowhere to be found, leaving their ultimate fate unknown. Some have considered the possibility that the Celestials were the ones who, according to Jedi and Sith legend, merged with the Force to control its path.

Legacy of Deities

Many of their extraordinary works and machines were known to have survived the ages with some races claiming the engineering wonders to produce their own civilizations. Other traces of the Celestials that remained ranged from the anomalous, leaving Scholars debating for centuries on the origins of these machines, with the true origins never being truly discovered. In the years of Darth Plagueis, some believed that the Celestials were a higher order of Force-Sensitive beings that guided the events of the galaxy, though many Sith dismissed this theory as such a theoretical line of thinking as to have no bearing on their desire to make the galaxy subservient to their will, since it meant that this was only in the realm of the enlightened elite.
