#3. Obi-Wan Kenobi

Obi-Wan Kenobi trained Anakin Skywalker, and also cut off most of his limbs on a lava planet. Obi-Wan is one of the most well-rounded Jedi Master’s to ever pick up a lightsaber. He’s also the only Jedi to defeat a Sith Lord, when he defeated Darth Maul, in a millennium.

Obi-Wan Kenobi was a dedicated servant to the Jedi Order. He was strict on their codes and precepts. He also wasn’t bad with a lightsaber. He was the one to take out General Grievous, and he seemed to have fun doing it. But after Anakin became Darth Vader, a lot of what Obi-Wan was disappeared.

When Obi-Wan was talking with Luke in A New Hope he told Luke that Obi-Wan Kenobi died shortly after his (Luke’s) father died. Which, if you think about it, is true. When Luke first met Obi-Wan, he told Luke that he hadn’t gone by that name in years. Obi-Wan changed his name to just Ben Kenobi after he went into hiding (after Revenge of the Sith).

Mind blown, right?
