Until The Clone Wars revealed that Obi-Wan Kenobi almost left the Jedi Order for love, Anakin Skywalker and Padmé Amidala were a galaxy far, far away’s primary forbidden couple. But Obitine, as fans call Obi-Wan and Duchess Satine Kryze, has expanded its reach so far that many have come to believe the two secretly had a child — and that child was introduced on-screen.
Korkie Kryze was introduced earlier on in the series, but when fans discovered how dedicated Obi-Wan was to Satine before they parted ways, they immediately latched onto the Korkie Kenobi theory. And it’s still going strong.
Korkie is Satine and Bo-Katan’s “nephew,” but as far as we know, the two Kryze sisters don’t have any other siblings. Korkie was introduced before Bo-Katan and before it was revealed that Satine had a sister. And fans can’t help but notice how much he looks like his “dad” Jedi Master Obi-Wan Kenobi.
To many fans, it just seems odd that The Clone Wars would go to the trouble of linking Korkie and Satine — and then Satine and Obi-Wan — without some deeper reason for doing so. Not everyone in Star Wars has to be secretly connected by blood, but in this case, it’s hard to deny the evidence.
One of these days, Korkie is going to show up as an adult searching for his father only to discover the true tragedy of the Jedi Order. But we’ll let the creative teams behind Star Wars’ various forms of storytelling figure out who’s going to be responsible for that heartbreak.
Not many are expecting Korkie to show up in live-action on Obi-Wan’s doorstep in the upcoming Obi-Wan Kenobi series, but no one was expecting a member of Yoda’s species to appear in The Mandalorian either, and look what happened.
Will we ever find out if Korkie and Obi-Wan are related? Will a future Star Wars TV show reveal that Korkie is secretly alive even though Bo-Katan claimed in The Mandalorian that she’s the last in her family line? Where is Korkie? Is he OK? Per usual, Star Wars fans will have to practice patience until they get answers to their most burning questions.
