Obi-Wan Kenobi was known as a great Jedi Knight Obi-Wan Kenobi
Obi-Wan became a Jedi after defeating the evil warrior Darth Maul, who had killed Obi-Wan's tutor Qui-Gon Jinn.

As he lay dying, Qui-Gon begged Obi-Wan to take the young Anakin Skywalker as his pupil and to train him as a Jedi.

For more than a decade Obi-Wan trained Anakin and they became good friends, but Obi-Wan became troubled by Anakin's weaknesses and anger.

Obi-Wan was right to be concerned.

He was unable to control the power inside his student and eventually lost him to the dark side, as Anakin is reborn as a Dark Lord of the Sith, Darth Vader.

Obi-Wan played a vital role in hiding Anakin's children, Luke and Leia, from their father and his evil master, the Emperor Palpatine.

As the Jedi's were slowly wiped out by the Emperor, Obi-Wan went into hiding on Tatooine for decades and became known as Ben.
