Star Wars: Obi-Wan’s best allies, ranked


Refresh your memory on all of Obi-Wan Kenobi’s allies from the Star Wars universe over the years.
Obi-Wan Kenobi is arguably one of the most significant characters in the history of Star Wars. Throughout six movies and an animated TV series, the Jedi Master has helped many characters in the franchise grow to their full potential. Young, old, father, or son, Kenobi has taught them all. Some of these characters were even romantic interests that Kenobi couldn’t fully pursue due to his adherence to the Jedi Code. In case you don’t have time to catch up on all the movies and The Clone Wars episodes before watching the Obi-Wan Kenobi miniseries on Disney+, here’s a ranked list of his allies from over the years based on how strong his bonds are with these characters. The funniest thing about Obi-Wan and Hondo’s relationship is that when they first meet, the charismatic Weequay pirate holds the Jedi Master for ransom alongside Anakin Skywalker and Count Dooku. Fortunately, Obi-Wan and Hondo would later work together to fight off the nefarious renegade Sith Lord Maul and his equally nefarious brother, Savage Opress. Despite not always seeing eye to eye, Hondo would consider Obi-Wan a close friend. The former even says as much in an episode of The Clone Wars follow-up series Star Wars Rebels. “One of my best friends was a Jedi,” says Hondo. “I’m pretty sure we were friends.” While Hondo and Obi-Wan have entirely different personalities, it’s nice to know that one views the other as a friend. Too bad Obi-Wan never saw Hondo again after the Clone Wars — or at least we think he didn’t. Obi-Wan and Padmé have known each other as far back as the events of The Phantom Menace, when he and his master, Qui-Gon Jinn, save her from the Trade Federation. Although they wouldn’t interact with each other much after those events, Obi-Wan and Padmé would remain friends, mostly through their connections with Anakin Skywalker. Even before Obi-Wan correctly guesses that Padmé is pregnant with Anakin’s child (or children rather), he subtly suspects they were an item in an episode of The Clone Wars. Luckily for Anakin and Padmé, Obi-Wan never reveals his suspicions to the Jedi Council, which goes to show how loyal he is to the couple. Not to mention Obi-Wan would later watch over Padmé’s son, Luke, so that he would not end up like his father. The well-regarded Jango Fett clone Cody commands the 7th Sky Corps, of which Obi-Wan is the general. The two become close during the Clone Wars as they both prefer to get things done by the books. In Revenge of the Sith, however, Cody succumbs to Order 66 and tries to have Obi-Wan shot down.
