Obi-Wan Kenobi has taken exile on Tatooine where he relives his failure in training Anakin Skywalker and the consequences of his padawan's fall to the Dark Side. One day as he performs a perfunctory security check of the Lars homestead, he discovers that twenty vaporators have been stolen by Tusken Raiders. Obi-Wan volunteers to recover the lost machines, but Owen forbids him. Worried about the loss of either Owen or Beru upon the upbringing of the baby, Obi-Wan ignores Owen and sets out to locate the thieves. It doesn't take him long to locate the Sand Peoples' camp and successfully infiltrates and locates the stolen merchandise. However, his attempt to transport the vaporators fails when he is discovered by a Tusken guard. For a brief minute, Obi-Wan is overwhelmed and is tempted by the Dark Side to strike down all the camps' inhabitants, however Qui-Gon Jinn's teachings soon reach out to him and he finds a non-lethal solution to his problem. He is so successful that his reputation against the Tusken Raiders will spread and his name be revered and feared far into the future.
His return to the Lars homestead with the stolen vaporators is a cold and unemotional affair in which Owen makes it clear that Obi-Wan is not a part of his family. Obi-Wan turns and makes his way back to the desert with the image of a gurgling, but happy baby in his mind.

This story occurs between approximately six to seven months after the events of Revenge of the Sith (18 and a half years before the Battle of Yavin).
