The fourth episode of Star Wars: Obi-Wan Kenobi was finally released this week. The episode shows the Jedi Master Obi-Wan Kenobi (Ewan McGregor) infiltrating Fortress Inquisitorius, located on the water moon Nur in the Mustafar system, to rescue the young Princess Leia from the Inquistorious. While he was deep into the fortress, he discovers something much darker.

[SPOILER ALERT]

While Obi-Wan is searching Fortress Inquisitorious for the young Princess Leia, he discovers something else. It turns out to be a strange Jedi graveyard, with several Jedi trapped on display in strange amber tombs. Among the Jedi on display, Tera Sinube is one of them, a member of the Jedi High Council during the Republic’s fall.

Tera Sinube’s time with the Jedi goes back to the High Republic Era. During the time that Nihil started attacking the Republic, Sinube had recently climbed to the rank of Jedi Master and has been put in charge of a Jedi Outpost on Derra.

A few hundred years later, Sinube has taught the younglings at the Jedi Temple on Coruscant. He was the one who led the Hawkbat Clan, which included future Jedi as Sifo-Dyas and Dooku. By the time Naboo was invaded by the Trade Federation back in Star Wars: The Phantom Menace, Sinube was a member of the Jedi High Council.

Sinube was also known as an expert investigator. He helped Ahsoka Tano find her lost lightsaber after it was stolen by a thief.

The latest episode of Obi-Wan Kenobi revealed that Tera Sinube was not among the few Jedi who were able to escape Order 66. This all ties into this being a time of darkness in the whole galaxy, as writer Joby Harold addressed in an interview with Entertainment Weekly back in April.

"It takes place 10 years after Revenge of the Sith, in a time of darkness in the galaxy," Harold said in the interview. "The Empire is in the ascendancy. And all the horrors that come with the Empire are being made manifest throughout the galaxy. And the Jedi Order as we know them are being all but wiped out. So everything that was in the prequels has crumbled."

"Those surviving Jedi, those that do survive, are on the run and they're in hiding. And Vader and his Inquisitors are chasing them to the end of the galaxy," he added. "Within that hopeless fatalistic world, we find possibly the most famous of all our surviving Jedi in hiding struggling with that faith that defines the Jedi, and wanting to hold onto it and hoping to regain that faith within that sort of hopeless world."

The first four episodes of Star Wars: Obi-Wan Kenobi is currently available to stream on Disney+ with the next episodes releasing weekly.
