A vigilant was a Force-sensitive individual that underwent intense training from childhood to control their innate abilities so that they may be used to combat prominent crime syndicates in the New Republic. They were viewed both as vigilantes and bounty hunters as while they were commonly hired to do jobs, they did so outside of the law. Vigilants were looked down upon by most of society due to their dark methods; vigilants utilized the usage of dark Force magics that differed from basic abilities associated with the dark side. These powers were denounced by the light-clinging Jedi. They were based on Aetera V.
The term "vigilants" was also sometimes used to refer to the unnamed order of which they were associated.
