Human, male, age 26
Decades before a "crazy old hermit" taught a young farm boy what it meant to be a Jedi Knight, Obi-Wan was a reckless youth himself, determined to prove his worth and make his master proud. This is the younger Kenobi, as he was when he stood on the bridge of the Republic cruiser Radiant VII, at the side of Jedi Master Qui-Gon Jinn. It will be many years and many perilous adventures before he will become the wizened Knight who faces his erstwhile student one final time aboard the terrible Death Star.
Obi-Wan Kenobi is just one of many, many familiar characters from the Star Wars movies that you will find in the new Star Wars Roleplaying Game from Wizards of the Coast.
He is an apprentice Jedi on the verge of becoming a Jedi Knight. Resourceful and quick-witted, he is an excellent Padawan, gifted with a noble character and a remarkable commitment to the Jedi path. Perhaps this, more than his abilities, is what led the Jedi Master Qui-Gon Jinn to finally accept Obi-Wan as his student despite his initial reluctance. Still, Obi-Wan has proven himself again and again, and Qui-Gon Jinn could not be more proud of his apprentice. For a long time it appeared as though Qui-Gon would not take Obi-Wan as his Padawan. Marked for the Agricultural Corps to tend to sick crops, after being passed over by a number of potential Jedi Masters, Obi-Wan was eventually given a chance to prove himself by dueling with other Jedi hopefuls. He defeated a rival student named Bruck, but Qui-Gon Jinn still passed him over. In fact, Qui-Gon did not finally accept Obi-Wan as his Padawan until after the youth helped bring Qui-Gon’s previous apprentice -- now a fallen Jedi -- to justice.
Since that time, over the course of many exciting missions together, the relationship between Qui-Gon and Obi-Wan has become like that of father and son. By the time of the blockade of the planet Naboo, Obi-Wan has learned nearly everything his master can teach him, though he is perhaps grounded a bit more in the unifying Force than Qui-Gon would prefer, lacking the kind of intuition and compassion that make the older Jedi a Master. As events unfold around Naboo, though, Qui-Gon becomes increasingly aware his student is ready to become a Jedi Knight.
Obi-Wan is still a young man, only 25 years of age, when the blockade of Naboo becomes an invasion. Wearing his hair close-cropped (except for the traditional long, thin braid of a human padawan), Obi-Wan goes clean-shaven and wears the customary Jedi cloak and robes. He carries a blue-bladed lightsaber of his own construction. In personality, he is quiet, serious, and occasionally sarcastic.
