Anakin Skywalker

The Chosen One

Details

Biography

The Jedi Order discovered Anakin Skywalker as a slave boy on Tatooine. He had the potential to be the most powerful Force-user ever, and perhaps was even the Chosen One of an ancient Jedi prophecy. Apprenticed to Obi-Wan Kenobi, Anakin was a headstrong and challenging Padawan learner. Despite the strict rules of the Jedi Code, he fell in love with and secretly married Senator Padmé Amidala.

At the onset of the Clone Wars, the Jedi Council quickly promoted him to Jedi Knight. A daring pilot and a skilled warrior, Anakin's confidence is his greatest asset, and, at times, also his greatest liability. In an effort to teach him responsibility, Master Yoda gave Anakin a Padawan learner: young Ahsoka Tano. Though their relationship was stormy at first, Anakin and his apprentice quickly found a common ground.

Obi-Wan Kenobi

Obi-Wan Kenobi

For over a decade, Anakin trained as a Padawan under Obi-Wan Kenobi's guidance. At first, Obi-Wan did not think the boy was suitable for the Jedi Order, but he trained Skywalker to honor Qui-Gon Jinn's dying wish. Obi-Wan and Anakin developed a close, brotherly bond, but the strains of the Clone Wars drew them farther apart, especially when the demons that haunted Anakin isolated him from the rest of his loved ones.

Ahsoka Tano

Ahsoka Tano

Anakin never requested a Padawan to train, but Master Yoda assigned Ahsoka Tano to be his apprentice in an effort to teach Skywalker a very important lesson. Anakin had troubles letting go of people, but the process of teaching an apprentice ultimately requires accepting that the student will become independent.

Anakin met Padmé when they were just children, but he was instantly smitten by her beauty and generous nature. They met again as young adults, and a romantic relation blossomed between the two, even though it was forbidden to both of them. They secretly married, keeping their bond hidden from the Senate and the Jedi Order.

From his marriage to Padmé, Anakin has twin children though he did not know it. Darth Sidious led Anakin to believe that the children died with Padmé, so it came as a shock to Anakin to learn of Luke Skywalker's existence.

Anakin -- as Darth Vader -- did not come to know of Leia's true identity as his daughter until near the very end of his life. When he pried that information from Luke's mind through the Force, Vader thought to corrupt Leia to the dark side.
