Siri Tachi was an individual who Obi-Wan Kenobi thought about touching hands with under the table during midday meal whilst at the Jedi Temple. In 3 ABY, Kenobi mused that whilst the Jedi Order may have died out, its dedication to posturing theatrics was still present in Yoda. Kenobi added that he had never questioned the Order about this whilst living in the Temple, and that he sometimes was not able to recognize what he believed in and what had been told to him over and over before he was old enough to understand its meaning. Kenobi then said that he only had to look back at touching hands with Tachi and that he felt as though he had deserved a punishment for the act from the Jedi Council.
Behind the scenes
Siri Tachi was first introduced in Jude Watson's 2000 Star Wars Legends novel Jedi Apprentice: The Captive Temple as a rival and later friend and love interest of Obi-Wan Kenobi. She was the Padawan of Adi Gallia and went on to become a Jedi Master.[source?]
She was reintroduced to Canon in the 2020 short story There Is Always Another by author Mackenzi Lee, who was a big fan of Watson's Jedi Apprentice and Star Wars: Jedi Quest series, which Siri Tachi made several appearances in.

Notes and references
- "There Is Always Another"—From a Certain Point of View: The Empire Strikes Back
- "There Is Always Another" is set during the events of Star Wars: Episode V The Empire Strikes Back, which Star Wars: Galactic Atlas dates to 3 ABY. Therefore, the events of "There Is Always Another" including the mention of Siri Tachi must have occurred in that year.
