On the Edge of the Empire
Jedi Bendu Master and Rebel Alliance General
General and Jedi Bendu Master Obi-Wan Kenobi served with Bail Organa during the Clone Wars. The Jedi Purge brought upon by the Sith and enforced by the Galactic Empire he survived by self-imposed isolation on the desert world Tatooine. There he quietly watched from a distance over Luke Skywalker, keeping a promise to an old friend.
When Princess Leia Organa sought him out, she requested he return with her to Alderaan and take up his former role alongside her father Bail Organa, this time, however, for the Rebel Alliance. The matter required considerable thought, and ultimately he agreed, on the condition that Luke Skywalker be brought with them. The terms were agreeable, and with the assistance of Biggs Darklighter, Luke’s guardians, Owen and Beru Lars, permitted their nephew to leave Tatooine.
Shortly after arriving on Alderaan, Bail Organa revealed to his old friend that a Jedi Praxeum was secretly continued on the planet, despite the Empire decreeing decades ago for all relics of the ancient religion to be dissolved. His friend implored Obi-Wan to take up the mantle of Master once more and train the Force potentials currently gathered. After some deep communing with the Force, the wizened Jedi Bendu agreed.
Then Darth Vader arrived.
The Jedi padawans managed to escape to Yavin, and despite the Empire’s attempts to destroy the Rebellion there with their DEATH STAR, the band resisted and held their ground.
