Notes: Darth Vader starts life as
Anikan Skywalker. During the invasion of Naboo by the Trade Federation,
Anikan is delivered from Slavery on Tatooine by Jedi Knights Qui Gon Jin
and Obi Wan Kenobi, Anikan ends up playing a key role in the battle to
free Naboo when he pilots a starfighter into a Trade Federation control
Years later Aniken would fall to the Dark Side of the force, and in a battle with his former mentor he became seriously injured. From then on he would be kept alive by means of the suit he wears.
After being turned back to the good side of the force by his son Luke Skywalker, Anikan is killed when he attacks Emporer Palpatine. In his last momentrs he has his Luke remove his helmet so he can see his son with his own eyes.
