Fett Facts Characters

Obi-Wan Kenobi


Mentor to Anakin Skywalker and an adversary of Jango and Boba

The Jedi Master known as Obi-Wan Kenobi had a long and illustrious career that stretched far back before the time of the Clone Wars. Obi-Wan first gained a reputation for himself when he became the first Jedi in over a thousand years to kill a Sith. He was also the mentor and close personal friend of, the pride of the Republic, Anakin Skywalker.

Obi-Wan was also one of but two Jedi that Boba Fett held a personal grudge against. The two first encountered one another when Obi-Wan was on Kamino investigating a lead to a recent failed attempt to assassinate Senator Padme' Amidala.

Obi-Wan was unprepared when he got to the planet to find that the Kaminoan's had been expecting his arrival. It turned out that Sifo-Dyas a Jedi that had passed away a decade ago had commissioned an army of Clone Soldiers shortly before his death. Obi-Wan was taken on a tour of the facility before finally being introduced to the template for the clones, a man named Jango Fett and his unaltered clone "son", Boba. While talking to the elder Fett Obi-Wan caught a glimpse of the familiar armor worn by the mysterious person that had been on Coruscant recently.

After leaving the Fett's apartment Obi-Wan later came across Jango and his son trying to escape. A fierce battle broke out between Jango and Obi-Wan leading to the both of them nearly plummeting several hundred feet to the roaring sea below.

Just as the Fett's thought they had rid themselves of the bothersome Jedi, they found to their surprise that he had survived and was following behind them while they were on their way to Geonosis. Even after using every trick in their trade to put an end to Obi-Wan, Jango and Boba would both find out later that he had still managed to survive their onslaught.

Obi-Wan's talent for avoiding death at the hands of a Fett, led Boba to hold a personal grudge against Kenobi for embarrassing his father's skill at destroying a target. Many years later, Boba would once again cross paths with Obi-Wan while hunting down a former Padawan turned resistance leader named Ferus Olin.

And, just as all those times before, Obi-Wan Kenobi managed to avoid being incinerated at the blaster end of a Fett.
