"Anakin." Obi-Wan’s voice had gone soft, and his hand was warm on Anakin’s arm. "There is no other Jedi I would rather have at my side right now. No other man." Anakin turned, and found within Obi-Wan’s eyes a depth of feeling he had only rarely glimpsed in all their years together; and the pure uncomplicated love that rose up within him then felt like a promise from the Force itself.
Blade to blade, they were identical. After thousands of hours in lightsaber sparring, they knew each other better than brothers, more intimately than lovers; they were complementary halves of a single warrior.
In every exchange, Obi-Wan gave ground. It was his way. And he knew that to strike Anakin down would burn his own heart to ash. [x]
Favorite Male Character (Part One of Three): Obi-Wan Kenobi
"This is Obi-Wan Kenobi: A phenomenal pilot who doesn’t like to fly. A devastating warrior who’d rather not fight. A negotiator without peer who frankly prefers to sit alone in a quiet cave and meditate. Jedi Master. General in the Grand Army of the Republic. Member of the Jedi Council.
And yet, inside, he feels like he’s none of these things. Inside, he still feels like a Padawan. […]
Being named to the Council came as a complete surprise; even now, he is sometimes astonished by the faith the Jedi Council has in his abilities, and the credit they give to his wisdom.
Greatness was never his ambition. He wants only to perform whatever task he is given to the best of his ability.”
~ Revenge of the Sith Novelization by Matthew Stover
"A bond between two living beings is not something easily broken…it is like breaking a feeling. Like turning away from the Force. To break a bond, your feelings would have to change, or one of you would have to die- but even then, the bond wouldn’t go away, it would simply…it would simply be empty, a wound." [x]
