Let’s go ahead an honor one of our most favorite Jedi with the Character of the Week title.
Obi-Wan Kenobi was Anakin’s Jedi Master, a General during the Clone Wars, the spark of the Rebellion, and one of the strongest Jedi throughout their illustrious history.
As a Padawan he defeated a Sith, Darth Maul, after which, he fought his way through ranks of Jedi Knight to Jedi Master and a seat on the Jedi Council. He’s lived through battles with Count Dooku, Assaj Ventress, General Grevious, Jango Fett, countless battle droids, and even Anakin Skywalker, the Chosen One. Obi-Wan Kenobi is a true Jedi warrior and a constant follower of their ways.
While Obi-Wan Kenobi was always a follower of the Jedi path, it still wasn’t easy for him. He had his own battles, but in the end he always upheld the Jedi’s oath. Obi-Wan saw his Master, his love, his friends, and countless others die before his eyes, but he never allowed those tragedies to shake his faith. He remained selfless, powerful, and kind. Anakin could’ve learned more about being a Jedi if he had truly watched and learned as his master navigated love, friendship, the Jedi Council, and how he conducted his business. Obi-Wan constantly put his life on the line for others with no want for reward. Jedi do not perform acts of valor for reward or recognition, they do so for the sake of others.
As we get closer and closer to Star Wars day, we hope you join us as we celebrate a great Jedi this week.
Thank you for your time and remember, deep roots are not reached by the frost.
