Former Jedi Grand Master, Current Supreme Chancellor of the Republic
Obi-Wan Kenobi, is the Jedi Grand Master who played a significant role in the fate of the galaxy. He was personally responsible for the deaths of Darth Maul, Count Dooku, and Marshal Qui-Gon Jinn. He is also credited with exposing former-Chancellor Palpatine as the Sith Lord, Darth Sidious. Kenobi had a long and tumultuous career that has helped shape the fate of an entire galaxy. He received his training from Masters Yoda and Qui-Gon Jinn. He taught Ahsoka Tano in the ways of the Force, and continues to carry out his role as a mentor to the younger Jedi in the Jedi Order.
32 years ago, Kenobi became the first Jedi in approximately 1,000 years to defeat and kill a Sith Lord in combat when he defeated Darth Maul during the Second Battle of Theed. Kenobi was also the only member of the Jedi High Council to survive the Clone Wars; many of his contemporaries were killed in the Battle of Coruscant when a Separatist cruiser crashed into the Jedi Temple. He is a master of the third form of lightsaber combat, Soresu. He fought as a High General for the Galactic Republic during the Clone Wars, served as Acting-Chancellor of the Republic after Padme Amidala’s assassination, and continues to advise the current Chancellor, Mon Mothma, on a daily basis.
Grand Master Kenobi has trained several padawans to Knighthood, including Jedi Master Ahsoka Tano. His current padawan is a young woman named Satine Naberrie, who is almost ready to begin the Jedi Trials.
