Obi Wan Quotes

Obi-Wan Kenobi, who was also known as Ben Kenobi, is one of the most influential and well-known characters in the franchise Star Wars.

Obi Wan is one of the best and most legendary Jedi knights and this is evident in the fact that he is also a Jedi mentor and a friend to Anakin Skywalker in the prequel trilogy, who, upon turning to the Dark Side, has been named Darth Vader, which happened near the end of the Clan Wars.

It was also seen in the original trilogy that Obi-Wan introduced the ways of the Jedi to young Luke Skywalker, a promising Padawan and the lead character everyone would eventually come to know, and who was truly gifted in the ways of the Force.

Even apart from being a Jedi mentor, Obi Wan Kenobi has a vital role throughout the franchise, which is evident in the fact that served as a general in the Republic Army during the Clone Wars and defeated the mighty General Grievous in a fair battle (where he says the iconic line “So Uncivilized”)

Obi-Wan Kenobi was born on the planet Stewjon, 57 years before the Battle of Yavin and as a result of his abilities in the Force, he has been taken to the Jedi Temple on Coruscant within 6 months of his birth where he began his training.

Being a youngling, Obi-Wan was tutored by the Grand Master Yoda, before he became a Padawan learner and a very strong apprentice to a Jedi Master Qui-Gon Jinn.
