Default Real World Jedi - feeding Ethereal or Laurence?

Note: No spoilers for The Last Jedi!

There are some real world people who claim Jedism as a religion. Who are they feeding Essence to?

Laurence, because they aspire to be sword-wielding paladins?

Some existing Ethereal?

Some new Ethereal? Is there a space opera realm in the Marches?

Nybbas, because it is the media?

Malphas loves all the fan feuds, of course.

Inspired by this alternate world.

I think the question would be *why* they aspire to be Jedi-believers. Explain the reason and you define the Superior who's most interested.

I'm rather fond of the idea that Jediism is feeding Essence to a newly formed, probably-dualistic Ethereal called The Force. What influence the Force has on the physical world, and how much, is another matter, of course.

For Celestials, though, Rocket Man has a good point.

My flatmate worked in the census when the fad of putting Jedi on the forms really struck - given the loathing it triggers (and you'd be surprised how many people can't spell 'jedi') I'd say Malphas and Kobal.

The "Guédé" are some of Haitian Loa, and the inability to spell "jedi" causes census takers no end of frustration as they try to work out which term has been mis-spelled. I could well imagine some Loa claiming to be 'the force'.

I agree with Prince Charon.

The Jedi I know mostly focuses on the idea that all life is interconnected.

I'd probably give The Force the elements of The Stars, Life, Light, and Dark.

My recommendations for Celestials:
Lawrence & David for Jedi Knights. Lawrence is best for Jedi looking for a purpose, while David is probably good for those that "resist the dark side".

Yves for Jedi Masters. Most are trained to teach while Yoda & Obi Wan are probably special cases with Obi Wan departing early while Yoda departs late.

As for "fallen" Jedi I'd probably go Blandine Soldiers turned to Beleth's service. Hopes & Fears are kind of their shtick.
