Justice at lastPosted: May 11, 2011
We finally caught him. That’s right, I’m happy to report that renowned terrorist and known rebel conspirator Obi-Wan Kenobi has been brought to justice. Speaking from the East Room of the Imperial Palace, Lord Vader confirmed that Imperial intelligence discovered he was living under the pseudonym “Ben” Kenobi on the Outer Rim planet of Tatooine. After a concentrated strike team composed of the 501st Legion eventually brought down the dangerous outlaw in a firefight near Alderaan, his body was immediately disposed of in deep space according to Jedi tradition.
I, for one, feel much safer knowing the Empire is capable of bringing down one of the most dangerous Jedi scum to haunt our spaceways, though I wonder how the struggling Rebel Alliance will react. Despite his increasingly marginal role, Kenobi was a powerful figurehead. I fear that to the Rebels, his legacy could be more powerful than we can possibly imagine.
