This, then, is Obi-Wan and Anakin. They are closer than friends. Closer than brothers. Though Obi-Wan is sixteen standard years Anakin’s elder, they have become men together. Neither can imagine life without the other. The war has forged their two lives into one.
Together, they are unstoppable. Unbeatable. They are the ultimate go-to guys of the Jedi Order. When the Good Guys absolutely, positively have to win, the call goes out. Obi-Wan and Anakin always answer.
Whether Obi-Wan’s legendary cleverness might beat Anakin’s raw power, straight up, no rules, is the subject of schoolyard fistfights, créche-pool wriggle-matches and pod-chamber stinkwars across the Republic. These struggles always ends, somehow, with the combatants of both sides admitting it doesn’t matter.
Anakin and Obi-Wan would never fight each other. They couldn’t. They’re a team. They’re the team.
And both of them are sure they always will be.
