Obi-Wan is the model for the JK while Yoda is for the Consular, its not that hard to see.

Obi-Wan is focused on lightsabre combat. Sure he was sent on ambassador-missions, but so were all the Jedi. Yoda while fighting Dooku relied heavily on using the Force to throw and deflect objects and lighting, before going into lightsabre-combat.

When it comes to Consulars, escpecially Sages, I think of Qui-Gon.
Why?
He is very diplomatic and strong with the living force which is the basis for Sages. Shadows have (lorewise) a bit more aggressive approach to things though that doesn't mean in any way they are evil or violent.
Also his mostly kind personality (see how he treats Jar Jar and Anakin before he knows the boy is strong with the force) fits well in the picture of a Sage. Stoic as he can be he treats aliens and less fortune people very kindly.
Tahl is another person I'd associate with Sages for pretty much the same reasons, though she is not a movie character.

Of course considering his wisdom and force powers the people who associate Consulars with Yoda do have a point.

Obi-wan is a typical tank. Even when we use soresu-form, the animation is similar to obiwan actions when he was fighting with General Grivus

Anakin honestly couldn't make up his mind on his class. He was a Sentinel to begin with, except he thought he was too cool to use a second lightsaber and since he was only fighting trash mobs up until the chapter 2 boss, he was able to get through unscathed. Then when he got to his chapter 2 Boss, aka Dooku, he rushed in and was whooped by force lightning. Obi-Wan fought Dooku while Anakin was respawning, but he didn't have enough offense in his tank spec to deal with Dooku. Luckily for him, Anakin got back just in time before Dooku could get in the killing blow on Obi-Wan. While Obi-Wan was incapacitated, Anakin finally started using his second lightsaber, but it was quickly disabled. Only now able to use half of his abilities, he lost. After that, he decided to re-roll as a Guardian, but since he saw Obi-Wan had trouble, he specced vigilance instead. Eventually getting bored with the Republic side, he rerolled as a Sith, going with Juggernaut and speccing Vengeance.

Yes, I'm obviously joking.

Isn't Mara Jade (from the books directly following E6) an imperial agent to begin with? Not that she starred in the movies, but she'll make an appearance in the third trilogy should it be made.

While Yoda was one of the most powerful force users he was also one of the best lightsaber duelists.

I only read part of one of the EU books with Jade, I thought she was attuned to the force. She had some poison that she was constantly fighting off via the force.

He just happened to be really good at fighting. However, the Ep3 novel declares that he never mastered a particular Lightsaber fighting form. Mace Windu comments that this is why he was able to defeat uh.. you know, the wheezing four saber robot guy - because he wasn't mentally locked in to a specific form, and that dude killed jedi by learning their form and countering it. This does suggest that he wasn't trained as a warrior.
I remember reading that jedi practicing lightsaber combat intentionally did this so that they couldn't be predicatable, with that in mind he actually might be better at lightsaber combat than you think - even to probably fill the jedi knight stereotype. Furthermore the first time Qui-gon noticed Obi-wan was because he was the top in the class at lightsaber combat. Tbh I never really saw Obi Wan use any abilities besides the standard push/pull/jump/mindtrick.

Well, no one else deigned to comment, but *I* thought your post was very clever!
