A Jedi is BornAs a young boy growing up, Jacob Alvarez admired the superheroes that kept the world safe. When asked by anyone what he wanted to when he grew up, he would always say that he wanted to be a superhero and he was criticized for it, after all, Jacob had no powers. As he grew up, Jacob took other's criticisms to heart and his dream of one day being a superhero was slowly dying. By the time he was 15, he had sold all the superhero action figures, trading card collections, and memorabilia he had and was completely disenchanted with the whole notion of being a hero.
However...as fate would have it, Jacob was not out of the game entirely. At the age of 18, Obi turned on the news one day and saw live as the superhero Andferne successfully thwarted a violent bank robbery attempt. He saw as the people cheered his name and Jacob was once again inspired. That night he made himself a make-shift costume, christened himself "The Ghost" and decided that he would patrol the streets around his home, a typical hotbed for gang activity and drug dealing.
As he was walking the streets he saw a man being assaulted by a group of thugs. Without hesitation, Jacob jumped into action. He managed to fight off many of the thugs using his marginal Brazilian Jiu Jistsu skills until the man he was defending was able to run away and get to safety, but in the end, the numbers were too much for Jacob and he was brutally beat up, stabbed, and left to die on the cold sidewalk.
The severely injured young man woke up in a warehouse. He had apparently been saved by a mysterious man who now revealed Jacob's true destiny. This man was Paibok Slim the last remnant of a the legendary Jedi Order. The Force had led him here, to Earth because it was here that he would find the next Jedi.
Jacob began training whenever he had time with Paibok, who now made up residence in the abandoned warehouse. He slowly learned that the Jedi Order was, in fact, real. He learned all about The Force, lightsaber combat, the teaching of the Jedi, and the history of the Jedi. However, during his training Jacob noticed that Master Slim was slowly losing strength. Opting to not say anything and make things awkward, the young man continued his training.
One fateful day, when Jacob rushed to the warehouse, he found Master Slim lying on the floor, dying. At this point, Paibok took off his robes and showed Jacob the scars on his body. The scars ran deep and all over the master's skin. Paibok then explained to the young man that he had been infected by a deadly virus. He knew he was going to die and that was the reason why he had been trying to train Jacob so quickly and hastily. With his last breath, Slim said, "You are now the last of the Jedi, the only one in the universe. When you are nearing your death, another one will emerge to take the torch from you. There can only be one. This is how it is now. Jacob, be wise, be pure, use everything you learned here and above all, be the hero your people yearns for."
As Master Slim's body disappeared into nothingness, Jacob took his robes and both lightsabers in hand. He was now ready to be the hero he knew he was always meant to be.
We Are LegendNow a full-fledged Jedi, Jacob Alvarez began patrolling the streets of Los Angeles and fighting crime.

Powers (will expand upon soon)
Unarmed CombatWhen Obi began his superhero career, this was a glaring weakness in his arsenal. However, he has fought many enemies, trained under many masters, and assimilated many styles of martial arts and is now a great hand to hand fighter, able to hold his own even without any weapons or powers.
Weapons and Equipment
"This was the formal weapon of a Jedi Knight. Not as clumsy or random as a blaster. More skill than simple sight was required for its use. An elegant weapon. It was a symbol as well. Anyone can use a blaster or a fusioncutter—but to use a lightsaber wellwas a mark of someone a cut above the ordinary." --the original Obi Wan Kenobi
Obi's most common weapons of choice are his two lightsabers. One lightsaber is his original green lightsaber given to him by Master Paibok Slim. This lightsaber is the easiest to wield for Obi and is the one that he usually uses first in battle.
Obi other saber is his blue lightsaber. This lightsaber was Paibok Slim's weapon before he died and Obi uses it as a n homage to his departed master. This lightsaber's blade is longer than his green saber and is functional underwater. The young jedi uses this lightsaber in specific situations and having this weapon allows him to use the Jar'Kai style of lightsaber combat in which he fights with both sabers.
Obi Wan Kenobi's ultimate weapon and one he uses only in emergencies is his white lightsaber which he has christened "The Equalizer," because of the fact that no matter how high the odds are stacked against him, 'The Equalizer" will always even the odds and give the Jedi victory. The heat emitted from the Equalizer's blade is enough to burn anyone in the immediate vicinity. For some reason, this heat does not overly damage Obi Wan Kenobi, though he does need to have special gloves on when using this incredible weapon.
Body ArmorWhen Obi Wan Kenobi joined the Legion of Light during his travels in outer space and was given ancient body armor blessed by the Jedi Order. This armor is super lightweight and allows Obi all of the flexibility he needs in battle. It subtlety enhances his speed and strength and absorbs any impact, spreading it equally throughout his body and dramatically lessening any damage. The armor itself is made from some kind of unknown metal not found on Earth. Wrapped around the armor are robes with Jedi symbols.
WAL CommunicatorWhen Obi Wan Kenobi joined WAL, he was given a WAL communicator. This communicator has many functions. When on a mission, Obi can look up all of the mission details on his communicator. Also, the WAL Communicator acts as a locator anda GPS. Additionally, Obi has stored many of his files on his WAL Communicator. There he has descriptive files on almost every superhuman he's come across, friend or foe.
VehiclesSwoop Bike- Obi's main mode of transportation is his modified swoop bike. This bike can go at speeds of over 300 miles per hour and is highly maneuverable. He can call his swoop at anytime using a button on his utility belt. The swoop has an up-to-date map of all the streets in the Unites States and can safely drive itself from point A to point B.
Ghost- Before his mission to find the lost Sith holocron in Egypt, Obi was given "The Ghost" by the genius inventor, The Professor. The Ghost is a prototype aircraft that can fly at speeds of 500 miles per hour. It is super stealth and impossible to detect by any sort of technology. The Ghost is equipped with plasma guns and infrared detectors. It is named "The Ghost" as an homage to Obi's first superhero persona.
AT-ST (All Terrain Scout Transport)- The All Terrain Scout Transport is Obi's "heavy-duty" vehicle. It is armed with an overabundance of guns and weaponry. Obi rarely uses the AT-ST but he has it on hand if the need ever arises.
