Jedi Master, dead but not gone

First campaign appearance: Shards of Honor 21.0 "Come the Twilight"

Jedi Master Qui-Gon Jinn (a.k.a. "Ghostie Jinn")

John Washington, Fortune Hunter:

Here's a story from right at the beginning of the Long Night. I was not there, mind, but we drifted in a month or two later and I got pieces of the tale early on. Some of it is the kind of "personal" you only get when an old soul is in their cups, and some of it is the same sad thing you will hear across Tapani Sector when anybody brings up the first quarter of 'Seven-twenty-four. But still, this is the start of New Dendarii, whether you buy mystic mob stuff or not:
When the first stragglers docked in an abandoned mining station to sort themselves out, they found a bearded human present in Jedi robes, translucent like a low-quality hologram, distinctly green in tint. He says his name is Qui-Gon Jinn; some of the new locals think he's a holoprogram built into the station by previous, lonely residents. Vanya Ysadora says "Ghostie Jinn" is a Jedi who doesn't care that he's dead, and certainly she argues with him like she supposedly used to argue with the Skywalker twins or with Witch Queen Hinalli -- like all the day's fun is in digging out as many components of the contraption anyone can source, and then seeing how they do or don't fit together.
On the other hand, Vanya says Sullustan gin is a shortcut to the Dumb Side of the Force. Who listens to that?
I can tell you this: Ghostie Jinn is not much of a mechanic, but he's a hell of a good engineer. If he pops into existence with advice about how we are joining some old hulk onto a new arm of the station, we have all learned to do what he said.

VNY's notes:
I still say "Ghostie Jinn" is a reasonably respect-filled nickname, where "Kwai" is awfully personal for the student of his former students. The fact that his two alleged ex-students didn't bat an eye when I referred to him thusly -- being rather more interested in, "What do you mean, he's haunting the station?" -- tells me that I'm pretty much on-target here.
