About Obi-Wan Kenobi:
At five years old, Obi-Wan was taken from his native planet of Stewjon and away from his family to begin his training at the Jedi Temple on Coruscant, the capitol planet of the Galactic Republic. He studied under Master Yoda as an initiate until he was thirteen years old, when he was selected by Master Qui-Gon Jinn to become a Padawan. After that, his training took place largely off-world, on galaxy-spanning adventures that taught him the intricacies of being a Jedi.
When he was twenty-five years old, he and his Master were dispatched to the planet of Naboo, which had been caught in a blockade by the Trade Federation. There they discovered a full-on invasion in violation of laws set down by the Republic. They rescued Queen Padme Amidala from the clutches of the Trade Federation and escorted her directly to Coruscant, where she helped to usher Senator Palpatine into the Supreme Chancellorship so that he might use his power to aid her people. When they escorted the Queen back to Naboo to rescue the planet, they participated in the Second Battle of Theed and helped to avert all-out war.
During the Second Battle of Theed, they encountered a Sith Lord called Darth Maul and engaged him. Qui-Gon was severely injured but narrowly managed to survive, and Obi-Wan cut the Sith in half and sent him tumbling down a pit.
In the aftermath of this encounter, Obi-Wan was granted Knighthood by the Jedi High Council. He is still learning the ropes of independence as a Jedi Knight, but he is learning quickly— the more signs he discovers of the impending rise of the Sith, the more he realizes he will be tested in the battles to come.
Both Qui-Gon and Obi-Wan have taken Padawans. Qui-Gon’s apprentice is a lively teenager called Scout, and Obi-Wan’s apprentice is a headstrong young girl named Nusialia.
This account takes place in 32 BBY approximately 6 months after the Second Battle of Theed in Episode I: The Phantom Menace. The course of the Phantom Menace plot remains largely unchanged except for two very important differences:
1. Qui-Gon and Obi-Wan never met Anakin Skywalker on Tattooine. That doesn’t mean he doesn’t exist, it just means he isn’t training to become a Jedi under Obi-Wan.
2. Qui-Gon was seriously injured by Darth Maul, but managed to survive. Obi-Wan has been knighted by the Council, but his former master still lives. They still go on missions together frequently.
Additional Character Information:
Obi-Wan can interact with anyone from any fandom. Since he does live in a different galaxy, interactions are generally explained away by a very convenient dimensional rift located in the Jedi Temple. Characters can either be misplaced in the Star Wars galaxy, or Obi-Wan can occasionally be found wandering Earth.
He is a shameless flirt and ships with just about every person under the sun (though he is primarily heterosexual). However, he is picky with his relationships. If he is emotionally and romantically attached to someone, he is less likely to have sex with them because he fears it will compromise his commitment to the Jedi Code. That said, he isn’t celibate. He just needs the right circumstances to pursue sexual activity.
He will interact with Star Wars characters from any point in the timeline, but there are some things he won’t understand. He has a limited knowledge of the Clone Wars; he understands that he will be a General in the massive conflict to come, and the thought weighs very heavily on his conscience. He is also familiar with several Clones and has learned to recognize them on sight. However, he does not know anything about Anakin Skywalker or the fall of the Jedi Order.
Rules of Engagement:
1. I am a discretionary follower. As much as I would love to follow everyone, my dashboard can’t handle it and I like to be able to keep up with my own threads.
I follow people I want to RP with. A lot of times I judge by quality. If I go to your blog and cannot find an actual RP post on the first page, I will not follow you.
If I don’t immediately follow back, it doesn’t mean I’m going to ignore you. By all means, drop me an ask and start up a conversation. It’s not that hard to change my mind.
2. The one exception to rule #1 is Star Wars characters. I always follow them because they’re so rare.
3. I do a lot of prose threads. At any one time, I’ll usually have eight or nine in my drafts. I’m not complaining— I love prose! But it means replies can often be slow. If I catch you online at the same time as me, I’ll try to be a little faster.
4. Don’t interfere with my plots without permission. If Obi-Wan’s in trouble, I guarantee you I’ve already got a solution in hand. If you’d like to be involved in a plot like that in the future, consult me out of character and we can discuss something.
5. My Star Wars universe interactions take priority. This means plot threads with Qui-Gon, Nusialia, Ventress, etc. are going to take precedence over small talk with folks on Earth.
6. Don’t godmod with me. I mean it. If you engage my character in combat without consulting me first (or otherwise engage him in some action that may have a drastic effect) I’ll drop you like a hot potato.
7. I have a blog on how to RP properly. It hasn’t been updated in a couple of months, but every word is gospel. Go study it: rpprotips
