• BIOGRAPHY/DESCRIPTION: Darth Vader is a Dark Lord of the Sith responsible for wiping out the Jedi and executing the Emperor's evil bidding. Feared by Rebels and Imperials alike, Darth Vader is a terrifying union of man and machine hidden beneath black robes and forbidding armor. Determined to hunt down and extinguish the Rebel Alliance, Vader commands the massive Imperial fleet and rules his forces through unquestionable terror. Once, this ominous figure was a young Jedi Apprentice named Anakin Skywalker who trained under Obi-Wan Kenobi to become a Jedi. Too impatient with his Jedi Master and consumed with anger and aggression, Anakin chose a path that could only lead to the dark side. He emerged as the villainous Darth Vader. When Vader discovers that one of the Rebellion's greatest heores is his son Luke Skywalker, he tries to lure him to the dark side, but Luke refuses and barely escapes with his life. When Vader and his son meet again, Luke is a Jedi like his father before him. In their final struggle, while Luke writhes in agony at the hands of the Emperor, Anakin Skywalker emerges from the darkness and sacrifices himself to save his son. Through his redemption, Vader's reign is ended and Anakin Skywalker is once again part of the light side of the Force.
