Legendary among heroes of the Rebel Alliance, Ben (Obi-Wan) Kenobi is regarded as one of the greatest Jedi Knights ever to have lived. As a young Jedi who had just completed his training, Obi-Wan made a solemn pledge to train young Anakin Skywalker in the ways of the Force. Anakin became a Jedi, but then turned to the dark side and became Darth Vader. Many years later destiny would have an older and wiser Obi-Wan guiding Anakin's own son, Luke Skywalker, in the ways of the Force, and ultimately in turning Vader back to the light side.

Anakin did not know that his wife was pregnant at the time of his descent into the Dark Side, and Ben and Anakin's wife greatly feared for the safety of her unborn children. Towards the end of the prequel trilogy Ben will take baby Luke to his brother Owen and Owen's wife Beru on the desert planet Tatooine, where the couple will raise the galaxy's messiah in safe anonymity. Obi-Wan fades into the Jundland Wastes and becomes Ben "the crazy old wizard" Kenobi, waiting for the day when Luke is ready to become a Jedi.
