Obi-Wan “Ben” Kenobi

April 2, 2011

 

Born on the planet Stewjon, Kenobi was sent to Coruscant at an early age to train in the ways of the Force.  However, due to impatient tendencies, Kenobi was seen as a threat and sent to work with the Jedi Service Corps, rather than train to become a Jedi Knight.

 

It wasn’t until a fateful meeting a year or so later between Jinn and Kenobi, that Jinn realized Kenobi’s potential.  Since his training under Qui-Gon Jinn, Obi-Wan Kenobi became the first Jedi to kill a Sith Lord in 1,000 years, played a major role in the Clone Wars, and assisted in the rekindling of the Jedi Order as well as the defeat of the Galactic Empire.

 

 

One of the most dynamic characters in Star Wars lore, Obi-Wan Kenobi remains a force to be reckoned with, even after his death.  His roles in Episodes IV, V, and VI may seem minor, but without him, Luke would have never studied in the ways of the force, he and Han would have never saved Leia Organa, and the Rebellion would have been crushed at the Battle of Yavin.
