Warning: This article contains spoilers from Obi-Wan Kenobi.

The writers of Obi-Wan Kenobi have demonstrated an admirable knack for fitting easter eggs into their shows such as the T-47 and T-16 Skyhopper models we have seen.

But there is one massive easter egg hidden in the Aurebesh scrawled on the walls of the Path and hidden right underneath our eyes.

So how do we know who Corran is?

When we first see Haja Estree we see him talking to a mother and her son. While you never hear their names being said, if you go to the actor’s pages you will see them listed as Nyche and Corran respectively and Corran is specially listed as the guest actor for three of the episodes of Obi-Wan Kenobi so far. That is interesting because inside legends lore there is a character known as Corran Horn, and his mother’s name is Nyche Horn.

This story gets even better though because Corran’s father is the Jedi in exile Valin Halcyon, also known as Hal Horn. While he certainly does not appear in any of the media we have seen so far, his name is hidden in the Aurebesh writing that we see during Obi-Wan Kenobi episode 3.

Where could we see Corran Horn again?

Corran Horn is the main protagonist in Michael A. Stackpole’s 1990s book series Rogue Squadron. He starts as a simply enforcer for the Corellian Security forces and eventually joins Rogue Squadron and discovers his Force-Sensitive heritage. During Nyche’s exchange with Haja Estree we also hear her ask for passage to Corellia. So it would seem that Corran is on his way to his legend’s origins.

But why would he be brought back now, if there is not anywhere for him to go? Why not simply leave his father’s name written on the wall as a cool easter egg? That is because there is a massive opportunity for him to come back in Patty Jenkin’s upcoming Rogue Squadron movie. If the movie is to draw from its legends origins we will see Corran make his appearance again in live-action just a few years from now.
