Ben continued heading down “The Path” in the latest episode of Obi-Wan Kenobi, and eagle-eyed fans were quick to notice the names of some familiar Jedi from the Legends era of storytelling. Check it out!
The third episode of Obi-Wan Kenobi introduced the concept of “The Path,” a literal path through the Galaxy where Jedi and Force-sensitive beings can find refuge from the Empire.
Some of the messages written in Aurebesh confirmed that certain key characters had survived Order 66, including Clone Wars‘Quinlan Vos. In the latest installment of the Disney+ series, we saw more etchings, this time on Jabiim. Among the names written on the wall (first shared by SFFGazette.com) that Obi-Wan looks at were “Corwin Shelvay,” “Djinn Atlis,” and “Roganda Ismaren.”
All three of them appeared in starwars Legends stories, though they’re not exactly big name characters (making us think this was just a fun Easter Egg for hardcore fans rather than a hint we’ll see any of them again). We also see the name “Tiberius,” likely a nod to obscure Jedi Knight, Tiberius Anderlock.
During this sequence, we’re sure you also spotted those lightsabers. They’re presumably all that remains of some of the Jedi who didn’t survive being hunted by the Empire, and as much as we’d love to name drop a popular character here, not a single one of the hilts is instantly recognizable.
The Path is an intriguing concept and one many fans anticipate being explored in the upcoming Jedi: Survivor video game. That makes the most sense and hopefully means a few familiar faces from the past will make their presence felt in this Galaxy Far, Far Away.
The season finale of Obi-Wan Kenobi will arrive on Disney+ next Wednesday, June 22.
