For the first year of the Clone Wars, the settlers of Forscan VI were able to remain neutral in the galaxy-spanning conflict. However, in 21 BBY, the Separatists began to establish a training facility on the planet.
Resisting occupation, the settlers immediately requested assistance from the Galactic Senate, who contacted the Jedi High Council. Deciding to send Jedi covertly, Knights Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker were dispatched.
With a mandate from the Jedi Council dictating that they were not to reveal their presence to the settlers of Forscan, the two Jedi began to move around the countryside. Skywalker rashly attempted to cross through the mountains of the planet, even though Kenobi deemed them impassable.
