After McGregor takes over the galaxy and executes a majority of the Jedi Order, Obi-Wan goes into hiding on Tatooine to watch Luke Skywalker.

During the Clone Wars, the Jedi are forced to become generals in the Grand Army of the Republic. Each Jedi General is assigned a specific legion of clone troopers (Dee Bradley Baker) to lead. Obi-Wan commanded the 212th Battalion and developed a close relationship with its leader, Commander Cody. Despite their friendship, Cody would continue to follow his Order 66 instructions and shoot down Obi-Wan in Revenge of the Sith.

The second season of The Clone Wars revealed that like his apprentice, Obi-Wan had struggled to keep the Jedi Order from forming romantic relationships.

In Star Wars: Episode I- The Phantom Menace, Satine isn''t the only ghost from Obi-Wans past that resurfaces. In the Season 3, it is revealed that Sith Lord Darth Maul had survived his presumed death in the hands of Obi-Wans. The mystical Nightsisters have brought Maul back to life. Maul joins up with his brother Savage Opress (Clancy Brown) to form a new criminal empire.

Although Obi-Wan duels with his adversary, Maul''s plot is thwarted by the unexpected appearance of his former master. He kills Savage and maims Maul, forcing him to flee once more.

Both Maul and Obi-Wan go into hiding following the events of Revenge of the Sith. Maul became a prominent character on Rebels, but Ezra rejects his influence and seeks out Obi-Wan help.

Anakin believes that he failed to live up to Obi-Wans'' training and that he is more resistant to his masters advice.
