I wonder where the term "lukewarm" comes from.

Well, I knew it was old because it's in the King James translation of the bible and it's... umm... old. But I still had no idea where it comes from.

I was wondering who Luke was and how he got such a remarkably mediocre reputation.

Luke was both the last Jedi of an era and the first Jedi of a new era. He was a hero, but not a terribly impressive one. His story lives on today mostly due to circumstance as opposed to any particularly stellar heroism. In short, he was a man in the right place at the right time. A mediocre hero with moderate temperament.

As for the age of the saying, his era was a long long time ago. a galaxy far, far away.
