Tovius was level nine, and the apprentice was also a player, so she wasn't an NPC. That's why I can't say for sure. I don't know about the Sith, I guess there is no rule . A Jedi reach knighthood at level 7, should they pass the trials, and achieve the rank of Master when they get their first padawan, I think. At level 10, if I am not mistaking. We keep the rules loose, concerning ingame ranking. The rulebook has ranked feats for the jedi classes, though more as a guideline I would say.
