Anakin Skywalker (Deceased)
Padawan of Obi-Wan Kenobi, Defense Councilor of the Republic
A lean human, Anakin’s brown hair and brilliant blue eyes hold the glimmer of adventure in them.
When he was 15, Anakin was found on a backwater world and brought to Coruscant for Jedi training. Unusually old to enter the ranks of the Jedi, his natural aptitude with the Force convinced the Jedi Master Qui-Gon Jinn to argue for his acceptance, which was tentatively granted by the Council. After Qui-Gon’s death, Obi-Wan Kenobi, now a Jedi Knight, chose to take him as his own Padawan, in honor of Qui-Gon Jinn’s final wish.
A mere 2 years later, Anakin had grown in his knowledge and power, and stood by Obi-Wan and as a friend and partner. Anakin’s quick rise and growing power left him feeling awkward and out of place, and this lack of confidence often got in Anakin’s way. That changed, however, as the outbreak of the Clone Wars pushed him to his limits, and forced him to grow as all wars do.
By the end of the Clone Wars, General Kenobi and Commander Skywalker were renowned as heroes across the galaxy, until the fateful day when the Jedi turned against the Republic.
