In the Obi-Wan Kenobi series, a secret anti-imperial network called The Path is introduced that provides aid to the Jedi and the Force-sensitives, and although few details have been revealed about it, one theory asserts that this organization was created by Cal Kestis, the hero of the game Video Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order.
The Road in the Obi-Wan Kenobi Series
In Part 3 of the Disney+ series, we see that Obi-Wan goes to rescue little Leia Organa but finds himself trapped by the detectives, so Haja Estree (Kumail Nanjiani) offers them help and puts them in touch with Tala Durith (Indira Varma) in Mabuzo, who takes them to a safe house and claims she can lead them away from the Empire using a secret network called the Path.
Tala reveals to them that this network exists in many regimes, where refugees are transported in safe houses to the Jabim to receive new identities and start a new life away from the empire.
El Camino is known to have been used by other Jedi, such as Quinlan Vos who left his signature at Mapuzo’s safe house, but in the absence of information, theories arose about who could have created this noble initiative, and one referred to Cal Kestis (Across ScreenRant).
Order Cal Kestis in Jedi Fallen
Cal Kestis is the protagonist of Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, and we will see him soon in Star Wars Jedi: Survivor, and his story is that he was a Padawan Jedi at the time of the Clone Wars, but his master was eliminated in Order 66, so he escaped to hide on the planet Braca where he was working in disguise .
Everything was going smoothly until the day he had to use force to save his friend Prof, which caught the attention of the detectives who came looking for him, eventually joining the Mantis crew where he befriended pilot Grey’s Dritos and former Jedi Master Cere Junda.
The Mantis ship team is engaged in a mission to unlock the Holocron containing information on all of the force-sensitive children in the galaxy, and the goal in the Jedi Fallen Order is to try to find them in order to rebuild the Jedi system and defeat the Empire. , although Cale eventually decides to destroy the Holocron because it almost falls into the hands of Darth Vader, so he prefers to keep them out of danger and start thinking of other ways to help them.
Is Cal Kestis the creator of El Camino?
In this way, the theory mentions the influence the force-sensitive youth had on Cale during his journey, as well as the fact that given his strong connection to them, it made sense that saving them from the Empire was a priority for him.
Since at the end of the first game he was intending to find other ways to help them, it is possible that he thought he created an underground network to provide them with support, because instead of rebuilding the Jedi Order and putting himself and other youths at risk, the path provides a safer way for Force-sensitive beings to survive Alive.
The latter also makes sense if we analyze the title of the second game in the Star Wars Jedi series, since while the first was Fallen Order and the goal is to rebuild the fallen Jedi order, the second titled Survivor which seems to indicate that the new purpose is to survive.
Of course, the timeline of Jedi Fallen Order coincides with all of this, with the first game taking place five years after the events of Episode III: Revenge of the Sith, which is five years earlier than what we see in the Obi-Wan series. , so if only Cale had established the path and Kenobi was able to see it.
Not many details about Jedi Fallen Survivor have been revealed yet, but it will be interesting if these projects intersect and see more of El Camino. And speaking of crossovers, many have also been left wanting to see Cal Kestis in the Obi-Wan series because it seems like a perfect opportunity to see him in live action.
We’ll see if this theory is rejected or confirmed, but for now next Wednesday we’ll see the final part of the Obi-Wan Kenobi, and Star Wars Jedi: Survivor is slated to release in 2023.
