"Whenever it's us, things get complicated. That time with Shaak Ti on Naran-Shiv. That nest of gundarks. Geonosis. Maybe the trick is to separate us and things will go smoothly. For once."
―Obi-Wan Kenobi, to Anakin Skywalker[1]

Naran-Shiv was a terrestrial astronomical object where Jedi Knight Obi-Wan Kenobi, his Padawan, Anakin Skywalker, and Jedi Master Shaak Ti were involved in an incident[1] sometime between 32 BBY and 22 BBY. In the latter year,[2] shortly after Skywalker had been promoted to the rank of Knight, Kenobi brought up the mission to Naran-Shiv while discussing how events involving both of them had a tendency to become complicated.[1]

Behind the scenes[]

Naran-Shiv was mentioned in the 2022 novel Brotherhood, written by Mike Chen.[1]


Notes and references[]

  1. 1.0 1.1 1.2 1.3 Brotherhood
  2. Anakin Skywalker became Obi-Wan Kenobi's Padawan during the events of Star Wars: Episode I The Phantom Menace, which Star Wars: Galactic Atlas date to 32 BBY. Brotherhood, which depicts Skywalker becoming a Jedi Knight, is set between the First Battle of Geonosis and the Battle of Christophsis, both of which Galactic Atlas date to 22 BBY. As Brotherhood indicates that the visit to Naran-Shiv occurred when Skywalker was a Padawan, it must have taken place at some point between those two years.
