Star Wars Legends: Anakin Skywalker/Darth Vader

Anakin Skywalker 

Thought to be the Chosen One who would bring balance to the Force, Anakin Skywalker was born on the dessert planet of Tatooine to Shimi Skywalker, and a slave to junk dealer Watto. For a young boy Anakin was surprisingly gifted with the Force, he could see things before they happen and had a knack for fixing things.

When Master Qui Gon and his apprentice Obi Wan Kenobi made a brief stop on Tatooine to fix the hyperdrive on Queen Amidala’s starship after running the blockade of the Trade Federation, QuGon sensed that this boy would one day fullfil an ancient prophecy and become the Chosen One.

Anakin helped Qui Gon and the Queen by winning the Boonta Eve Podrace, a fast paced dangerous sport in order to help fix the hyperdrive and once freed from slavery with the remaining money, Anakin left Tatooine to start his training as a Jedi.

As a young man, Anakin and the Queen from Naboo fell in love (which is forbidden by the Jedi) while Anakin was assigned to protect her from various assassination attempts and later in secret got married.

Anakin was a brave Jedi warrior during the Clone Wars but fell to the Dark Side, becoming Darth Vader.
