Guessing his purpose for being on Tatooine, Obi-Wan quickly defeated Maul in a short lightsaber duel, then confirmed that the boy he was watching was the Chosen One before Maul succumbed to his injuries.

The story begins 10 years after the dramatic events of ‘Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith’, where Kenobi faced his greatest defeat, the fall and corruption of his best friend and Jedi apprentice, Anakin Skywalker turned evil Sith Lord Darth Vader.
