In conversation with Entertainment Weekly, Indira Varma confirmed her character was originally conceived to be a love interest for Obi-Wan, but that is no longer the case.
There had already been different incarnations of the script and the story line...and I think, originally, she was going to be a love interest.

And it’s more interesting that this is a woman with agency who is not just going to fall at the feet of Obi-Wan.
