** Earlier, Qui-Gon rejects Obi-Wan as as potential apprentice, causing him to be sent off to the Agricultural Corps, never to become a Jedi Knight. Again, ''Film/ThePhantomMenace'' makes it clear that this situation is not permanent.

** Obi-Wan himself, being the probably snarkiest character in the franchise, starts to grow into this later on.

Part of the deluge of new EU material resulting from the massive renewed interest in ''Franchise/StarWars'' after the release of Episode I, ''Jedi Apprentice'' is a series of StarWarsExpandedUniverse books written for young adults. Basically an extended prequel to ''Film/ThePhantomMenace'' (yes, a prequel to the prequel), it follows the adventures of Qui-Gon Jinn and his young apprentice Obi-Wan Kenobi.

** Qui-Gon gets called out by Yoda and Tahl for all but forcing Obi-Wan to leave in the first place by making the boy to choose between staying with the Jedi and leaving his new friends and hundreds (perhaps thousands) of kids to die or leaving the Jedi and staying to help them.

Kenobi.

Although some of the books are stand-alone adventures, most of the series is told in story arcs that are at least three books long. The first arc, about Qui-Gon's old apprentice and enemy, doesn't end until the eighth book (within it is Obi-Wan leaving and returning to the Jedi, which lasts four books).

There were eighteen books in total and two Special Edition books that crossed over with the ''Literature/JediQuest'' series.



* AvengingTheVillain: Xanatos wants payback for his father, Crion's death. In ''JediQuest'', its SpiritualSuccessor, Granta Omega seeks vengeance for Xanatos' death.

* BadassInDistress: Qui-Gon spends most of books 12 and 13 tied to a science apparatus in Jenna Zan Arbor's lab, being subjected to experiments and having his blood extracted.



* TheDragon: [[BountyHunter Ona Nobis]] to [[MadScientist Jenna Zan Arbor]]. Xanatos appears to be turning Bruck into one, but throws him away without batting an eye.

* FunWithAcronyms: The [=POWER=] party stands for "Preserve Our Wild Endangered Resources".



* OddlySmallOrganization: The [=POWER=] party on Telos is really just Andra (and Den, but only because he likes Andra). In fairness, there ''used'' to be more members before it was outlawed. Those who weren't "disappeared" decided to quit.



* PlatonicLifePartners: Bant is Obi-Wan's best friend--she accepts him back immediately after Melida/Daan and he often tinks about how much he values her companionship, but there's no mention of any romantic feelings.

* JumpedAtTheCall: Obi-Wan.Obi-Wan really, ''really'' wants to be a Jedi Knight, and his impulsive actions in the first two books nearly result in that never happening. He can also get very swept up in whatever local conflict is happening, which has disastrous consequences in the fifth and sixth books.



* LivingMacguffin: The force-sensitive baby O-Lana in the ninth book. She brings the Jedi to the planet; when she vanishes, Qui-Gon and Adi learn a lot about the totaliarian nature of the planet over the course of their search for her, and Obi-Wan and Siri eventually find her in the Re-Learning Circle. Really, any baby could have fit the bill.



* MadeASlave: Obi-Wan in the second book. In legal terms, it's not actually named slavery, but when they strap on a collar that explodes if you escape....



* MythArc: Two in the form of Obi-Wan's growth as a Jedi and Xanatos's quest for revenge against the Jedi. In-between, Obi-Wan and Qui-Gon spend most of their time solving the problems of AdventureTowns.
** Xanatos is mentioned in book one and his company is the backer of the villain in book 4.
