Because that's his nickname out in the galaxy. Obi-Wan's diplomatic skills, specifically his reputation for preventing and stopping battles without using a single weapon, earn him the appellation "The Negotiator." Ultimate Star Wars - New edition The original script indicates this with a capital N. GENERAL GRIEVOUS: Oh yes. General Kenobi, ...

According to Wookieepedia, Count Dooku presented him his first lightsaber: The cyborg project was funded by San Hill to create a military leader that could counter Dooku's growing political influence in the Separatist Movement, although he presented the finished General Grievous as a twisted gift to Dooku. Though taken aback by his appearance, Dooku was ...

The "Negotiations" are a euphemism for fighting. The theme of "Negotiations" with relevance to Anakin and Obi-Wan appears in both The Phantom Menace and Attack of the Clones. At the start of The Phantom Menace, Obi-wan is accompanying Qui-Gon Jin to Naboo to negotiate a peace treaty and the end of the Trade Federation blockade of the planet. Then the Trade ...

Per the official novelization, Grievous' organs were enclosed and pressurized: Grievous, though, had no need to breathe, nor had he any fear of his body fluids boiling in the vacuum-the pressurized synthflesh that enclosed the living parts within his droid exoskeleton saw to that-so he simply rode the storm right out into space until he reached the end of ...

The lightsabers are indeed trophies taken from Jedi. Grievous provided a not-so-subtle hint that the lightsabers he carried with him were trophies when he encountered Obi-Wan and Anakin on the bridge of the Invisible Hand near the beginning of Episode III: OBI-WAN, ANAKIN, PALPATINE, and ARTOO are captured by GENERAL GRIEVOUS. They stand before the ALIEN ...

Mace Windu wanted to convince the Chancellor (and his lackeys) that they didn't have that many Jedi at their disposal, that their Temple was largely unguarded and that they were reluctant to send a non-Master to face given Grievous, given his propensity for killing Jedis. Their aim was to tempt the mysterious Darth Sidious into taking precipitous action ...

Grievous isn't able to craft his own lightsabers and has to settle for taking them from the corpses of his Jedi opponents as trophies. This explains their colours. We have confirmation from the Lightsabers: A Guide to Weapons of the Force factbook that the four lightsabers belonged to various Jedi masters that Grievous had defeated; Shaak Ti (which he took ...

Main canon The last that's heard of the fighter is that it was used to transport Obi-Wan from Utapau to the Sundered Heart. But Obi-Wan Kenobi killed the Separatist general before he could get away. After Obi-Wan was betrayed by his clone troops, he flew Grievous’s fighter to a rendezvous with Bail Organa and Yoda. Star Wars: Databack - The ...

Grievous' organs are well pressurized and encased in a Duranium chest plating. The book entitled: Star Wars: The New Essential Guide to Droids by Daniel Wallace provides these details. Here is a snippet of Grievous' body from the book: Similarly, his eyes too may well be protected by something similar. After all his Kaleesh Death Mask is quite ...

According to the film's official novelisation, Dooku ordered Grievous not to intervene. Dooku was, in turn, acting on orders from Palpatine who (unbeknownst to Grievous) was trying to provoke a duel between Anakin and Dooku. Dooku turned. From his commanding height, he stared down at the blue-scanned holoimage of Invisible Hand’s commander. “Your ...

TL;DR - Canon: 1 - Legends: 49 (plus some younglings) Canon During his career, General Grievous fought many Jedi, managed to capture, if only temporarily, several of them (Adi Gallia, Eeth Koth, Obi-wan Kenobi, Anakin Skywalker), and severely injure others (Depa Billaba as an example). However, I can only find one example in the Canon of a Jedi that he ...

Two reasons: First, as commonly discussed, the lightsabers are taken from the Jedi he captures or kills. In the deleted scene in RoTS, before Anakin and Obi-Wan find Palpatine on the ship above Coruscant, they run into a bunch of Federation droids with Grievous and another Jedi named Shaak Ti. Shaak Ti says, "Forgive me, Master Obi-Wan. I have failed," and ...

The Star Wars: Absolutely Everything You Need to Know factbook states that the city is 11 layers deep. There's also a mention in the Star Wars - Complete Locations book that the docking bays can handle Trade Federation Core Ships (700m x 900m) and in the Revenge of the Sith Novelisation that the landing spaces were large enough to land a Victory-class ...

Unknown The chronologically first appearance of Grievous appears to be "Rising Malevolence," Episode 1.02 of the Clone Wars (2008 series) In "Rising Malevolence," Count Dooku is seen commanding the warship Malevolence and its powerful superweapon. The chronological order of the various Clone Wars episodes is laid out in this answer. "Rising Malevolence" ...

Yes, they were trophies acquired from the Jedi. In fact, the first blue lightsaber was taken from Master Sifo-Dyas by Count Dooku himself, and later handed over to Grievous as a gift. Wookieepedia states: Once Grievous' transformation into a cyborg had been successfully completed, Dooku gave him the very special gift of Master Sifo-Dyas' own lightsaber. ...

Obi-Wan uses a very defensive fighting style; look at any fight he participates in, and you'll see he's very rarely on the attack from the start. He'll wait for an opening and then strike, giving his opponent(s) every opportunity to surrender. He's the paragon of the Jedi method, if you will - rarely aiming to kill. That's also why he never uses such force ...

Canon: LEAST POSSIBLE MINIMUM: 13 Jedi -13 Jedi is the absolute minimum and its almost 100% sure that it were more as it assumes that all his lightsabers he used in the clone wars 2008 series were from the dead jedi he also collected VISIBLE trophies from in episode 1x10 which were 12 plus the kill of Nahdar Vebb. Possible Maximum: 13-21+ Jedi -...

Obi-Wan Kenobi had mastered the lightsaber form III "Soresu" as no other Jedi did in the order and was therefore known to have the best lightsaber defense in the galaxy. This particular fighting style made him perfect for fighting Grievous with his 4 Lightsabers and high speed attacks. (His mastery of Soresu was also the reason why he was able to defend ...

  Unlikely. Doubt that Lucas even know about this relatively minor historical figure. With General Grievous, I wanted somebody who was reminiscent of what Anakin is going to become, which is a half man, half robot. In this case, Grievous is sort of 20% alien and 80% robot." ―George Lucas on the creation of Grievous

I think I've finally discovered the right answer for the depth issue. I just watched this documentary, in which Visual Effects Supervisor John Knoll says: We had a sinkhole that was about six feet diameter and about 12 feet high. So, according to the model ratio, the depth is roughly twice the diameter. With the earlier determination of 8,400 meter ...

Grievous took them from Jedi he defeated in the Clone Wars. The deleted scene from Episode III in the other question is related to this scene from the 2003 Clone Wars cartoon series. This is how Shaak Ti gets captured and how he gets at least two other lightsabers. You'll note that Grievous starts with at least one and then kills the other Jedi and takes ...

As far as I recall, in Matthew Stover's adaptation of Revenge of the Sith, it is stated, that the Jedi Council sent Obi-Wan, because he - even as an experienced Force-user - used the most basic lightsaber technique. Grievous was quick to analyze the techniques used againt him, but this way he wouldn't have this advantage. (Sorry, can't quote the part ...

His eyes are protected by this slimy film that slides over his exposed eye balls. This A, keeps them hydrated so grievous isn’t tempted to blink while in combat and B, protects his eyes from any harm including vacuum, biological weapons (like dioxis) and probably just dust or explosive flash. While this protective film stops grievous from consistently ...
