Eagle-eyed Star Wars fans have appeared to confirm that three forgotten Jedi managed to survive Order 66 while analysing a scene in the third episode of Obi-Wan Kenobi.
The new Star Wars series on Disney+ has been providing ultimate fan service left, right, and centre as Ewan McGregor is back in action as Obi-Wan for the first time in 15 years.
The series details his attempts to hide from The Empire, set 10 years after the events of The Revenge Of The Sith.
However, the third instalment of the series dropped on Wednesday (June 1) and saw the Jedi Master learn he's not the only one to have been forced to lay low.
Imperial Officer Tala, who was helping Obi-Wan escape, introduced him to the underground system of safe houses known as The Path.
Some dedicated fans found a few different clues in these scenes, that seemingly brings characters from Star Wars Legends into the canon, to the excitement of many fans.
The scene depicts a wall with various markings making reference to different Jedis that had to flee during Order 66, the mass killing and hunting of Jedi.
Fans were given an insight into the fate of one other Jedi as Obi-Wan examined the walls of the bunker and made reference to Quinlan Vos, saying: "Quinlan was here."
Determined fans dug even deeper into the episode to see what else the bunker could teach them.
Showing off their dedication fans utilised the Aurebesh alphabet, a writing system in the Star Wars universe, to decode three names on the wall.
The names Valin Halcyon, Roganda Ismaren, and Djinn Atlis could all be found written on the wall - meaning that these characters from Star Wars Legends had been included in the new series.
Seeing Valin Halcyon’s name in Aurebesh, along with Corran and Nyche earlier. That’s too much for simple references to my second favorite of @MikeStackpole’s Rogue Squadron characters. It has to be setting up for a full fledged Corran character in a later film or series, right?— Tim Smith (@ooryl2) June 2, 2022
Expressing their excitement over the inclusion of the Star Wars Legends characters, one fan wrote: "Wait wait #ObiWanKenobi just canonised Hal and Corran Horn AND Roganda Ismaren. What is happening?"
Halcyon changed his name to Hal Horn in a bid to try and hide his identity following the Great Jedi Purge but is best known as the father of Jedi Knight Corran Horn, Inverse reports.
One Twitter user said: “One of the Jedi names in the hidey-hole is ‘Valin Halcyon’. Aka Hal Horn. Aka the father of CORRAN HORN. LETS GOOOOOO. I need Corran in canon.”

The second name deciphered by fans is Roganda Ismaren; a more obscure character who is Alderaanian, like Leia, and who switched sides from being a Jedi padawan after The Purge.
Finally, fans managed to glean from the bunker the name Djinn Altis: a character who ran a denomination of Jedi rejecting the rules of its Council.
The three names indicate the characters managed to survive Order 66, the top-secret order that branded Jedi as traitors to the Galactic Republic.
