Obi-Wan Kenobi - Star Wars. Permissions Post.

The not so short bio: See this. There's a lot of information in there.

Obi-Wan is not actually all that serene. He has a temper. He is impulsive. He is emotional. He has a lot of history that very closely mirror's Anakin's - from love getting him into trouble, to nearly not being taken as a Padwan, to being arrogant and impulsive. He even left the Jedi for a while.

He gets, as he gets older, better at controlling those things. He is never, IMO, perfect. Just better than he used to be.

His default is likely to be after Anakin's fall (ie: when Jedi that have not been slaughtered and are in hiding) but before the original Trilogy. It gives him a better scope of interaction (including 21st century earth, fortunately.), though much less grounding and a lot of angst. It's also very quickly turned him very AU - but hey, that's what RP's about.

Fourth-Wall and Explanation Stuff:

Obi-Wan is being played primarily at a time period where Jedi are mostly extinct and in hiding - he's likely to at least initially introduce himself as 'Ben'. Which should save trouble.

However, I understand entirely that Star Wars is a part of culture for many muses. Anything with a sci-fi or fantasy twist should be fairly easy for it to be explained away, especially in a multi-verse setting.

It happened a really long time ago, in another, far away galaxy. Legends and myth often have their roots in truth. Some time travel and universe (galaxy) moving and you've got an explanation.

Mun and Muse are over 18.
