- "Ah yes, the Negotiator: General Kenobi. We've been waiting for you."
"The Negotiator" was a nickname given to Obi-Wan Kenobi, a Jedi Master active during the Clone Wars as a general of the Grand Army of the Republic. While Kenobi was a powerful lightsaber fighter, able to duel opponents such as Grievous and Darth Vader to defeat, his uncanny ability to prevent battle simply through his diplomatic skills throughout this conflict earned him this moniker.
Behind the scenesEdit
Separatist General Grievous referred to Obi-Wan Kenobi as the "Negotiator" in Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith. Ultimate Star Wars clarified that "The Negotiator" was an appellation that Kenobi had become known by thanks to his reputation for preventing and stopping battles without using a single weapon.
