Padawan Obi-Wan Meets Duchess Satine In Stunning Star Wars Fanart

Obi-Wan Kenobi first met Duchess Satine Kryze as a Padawan long before The Clone Wars, perfectly captured in a stunning piece of Star Wars fanart.

Padawan Obi-Wan Kenobi’s first encounter with Duchess Satine Kryze of Mandalore is beautifully illustrated through Star Wars fanart. Satine first appeared in Star Wars: The Clone Wars season 2 as a pacifist ruler attempting to steer her world towards a better future, and this struggle brought her into regular contact with the Jedi Order. The show revealed that she and Obi-Wan Kenobi loved each other when they were young, though their respective commitments led to them going their separate ways. Despite the significance to both of their stories, Obi-Wan and Satine’s first meeting has yet to be explored in an official capacity.


Thankfully, artist BirdyRaider created a stunning piece of Star Wars fanart that pairs Obi-Wan and Satine, first in their Clone Wars appearance and then their young adult appearance on the following slide.

This wonderful illustration offers a glimpse at what their first meeting may have looked like, with Padawan Obi-Wan not having the same cares as his older self. Satine’s new design is beautiful, as are the black and white photos that show the care put into the artwork from inception to final product.

Obi-Wan And Satine’s First Meeting Must Be Shown In Canon

Obi-Wan’s history with Satine added an entirely new dimension to his character, making it essential for Star Wars canon to show their first meeting. The Clone Wars and other stories have only offered brief explanations so far, and the Legends continuity didn’t explore their first meeting either. Seeing the story in detail would add more emotional weight to Obi-Wan and Satine’s relationship by showing what their lives could have been if they hadn’t sworn themselves to the Jedi and Mandalore respectively. Having the two on the run in the midst of the Mandalorian Civil Wars would also be an exhilarating story in its own right.

One place this story could be told is Star Wars: Tales of the Jedi season 2, a show that has already focused on prequel era Jedi before Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace. The show would have the same animation style as The Clone Wars and a tale featuring Satine could be the first in a three-episode Obi-Wan arc. Other possibilities for an Obi-Wan/Satine story include a book or comic series, a future movie or TV show, or a flashback in a potential Obi-Wan Kenobi season 2. Whatever the medium, Obi-Wan Kenobi and Satine’s first meeting must be shown in Star Wars canon.
