Drowning in the traumatic sorrows of yesterday, a brash hero becomes complacent, allowing a phantom from the past to threaten his true mission – protecting the key to galactic salvation.

On the desolate world of Tatooine, former Jedi Master Obi-wan Kenobi spends his years watching after his charge, the young Luke Skywalker. Broken down and haunted by his failure as a Jedi Knight and his failings as a master to his former student and friend, Anakin Skywalker, Obi-wan has become distracted and complacent to his mission and responsibilities.

After helping the militia of Anchorhead protect the city from a night raid by Tusken Raider’s, Obi-wan recklessly reveals himself as a Jedi Knight during the struggle.

Although once a beacon of hope and justice, the Jedi are not seen as the heroes they once were. Imperial propaganda has spent years characterizing the Jedi as a dangerous cult that tried to destroy the government and attempted to assassinate the Emperor of the Galactic Empire.

Now feared by the public, the Jedi sighting is reported to an Imperial military group that specializes in hunting down the remaining elements of the traitorous Jedi Order, the feared 501st Legion – Vader’s Fist.
