Darth Vader

Dark Lord of the Sith

Details

Description

Once a Jedi Knight, Anakin Skywalker swore loyalty to Sith Lord Darth Sidious in order to gain the power of the dark side of the Force. Vader betrayed the Jedi Order and his Master, Obi-Wan Kenobi. With the rise of the Galactic Empire, Darth Vader became the Emperor's dark enforcer. He carried out the Emperor's will, and commanded legions of Imperial troops. Vader was tasked with discovering the secret headquarters of the Rebel Alliance, as well as chasing down the Rebels who destroyed the Empire's massive Death Star battle station.

Darth Vader was encased in sinister black armor. The man underneath was mortally wounded in a lightsaber duel, and the dark suit includes extensive machinery to keep Vader alive. The sounds of his mechanical lungs accompany his every step. Such injuries greatly diminished his ability to use the Force, but Vader is still very powerful. He can command the power of the dark side to hurl objects or remotely crush the throats of his victims.

Darth Sidious

Darth Sidious

Darth Vader pledged his loyalty to Darth Sidious as the Clone Wars came to an end. Kneeling before his dark master, Vader assumed the mantle of Dark Lord of the Sith. His first assignment was to wipe out the Jedi Temple. After Vader was defeated by Obi-Wan Kenobi and suffered severe injuries, his power was diminished. Darth Sidious rebuilt his apprentice, but kept his sickly yellow eye open for another who could take his place.

Obi-Wan Kenobi

Obi-Wan Kenobi

When Obi-Wan Kenobi cut down Darth Vader on Mustafar, the Dark Lord was consumed not only by flames, but by a burning hatred. Obi-Wan had come to symbolize everything he hated about the Jedi Order. After Vader was rebuilt, more machine than man, he still carried this anger, and was able to at long last strike down Kenobi during their duel aboard the first Death Star.

Luke Skywalker

Luke Skywalker

Luke Skywalker had become a hero in the Rebel Alliance knowing very little about his father. Though he'd come to learn that Anakin Skywalker was a daring pilot and Jedi, he did not know that Anakin had fallen to the dark side. Likewise, Vader did not know he had a son until after Skywalker destroyed the first Death Star. Vader made finding his son a top priority.

Vader did not know that Leia Organa was his daughter, even though the two had met on occasion during the Galactic Civil War. As a servant of the Emperor, Vader was most interested in reports of Leia supporting the Rebel Alliance. He captured Princess Leia and interrogated her to find the location of the hidden Rebel base.

Vader's path to the dark side began with his inability to accept that he could not control the destiny of his loved ones. As Anakin Skywalker, he was plagued with visions of his young wife, Padmé Amidala, dying in childbirth. Tempted with promises of power that could save her life, Anakin committed himself to the dark side and became Darth Vader.
