The Sith Lord Darth Vader
Born into slavery on the desert planet of Tatooine, Young Anakin Skywalker would find his life changed forever when Jedi Knights Obi-Wan Kenobi and Qui-Gon Jinn arrive with Queen Padme Amidala and involve him in the oldest conflict of the galaxy: the Jedi and their fight against the Sith. As a Jedi, Anakin struggled with fear and loss until, at last, war breaks out between the Republic and the Separatists. The Clone War has begun.
Anakin fights to keep the Republic alive, but is drawn into the web woven by Sith Lord Darth Sidious, The Republic’s Palpatine. Tricked into disobeying his Jedi masters, Anakin brings down the Jedi and, after a deadly fight against Obi-Wan Kenobi, becomes the black-armored titan we know as Darth Vader.
Years pass. Darth Vader is made aware of Obi-Wan’s presence on the Empire’s indestructible space station the Death Star and kills him in battle. His son, Luke Skywalker, then destroys the Death Star moments before Darth Vader would have killed him. Vader and Luke later meet aboard Cloud City on Bespin, and Vader tests Luke’s lightsaber skills, defeating him, chopping off his hand, and telling him the truth about their relation.
Luke escapes, but the two meet once more when Luke hands himself over to the Empire before the battle of Endor. Luke and Vader again duel, but this time Luke overpowers his father. Palpatine, still ruling after all this time, tells Luke to take his father’s place at his side. Luke refuses, and Palpatine tortures him. Vader, drawn to protect his son and regain his lost humanity, throws the Emperor into a pit. Darth Vader died as his son looked upon his face for the first and last time.
