Before he became the fearful Darth Vader, Anakin Skywalker was the Force’s Chosen One. Born on Tattooine, he spent his early years as a slave until he was rescued by Qui-Gon Jinn, Obi-Wan Kenobi’s mentor. Obi-Wan takes him on as his Padawan, and he becomes a Jedi Knight.

He agrees to turn to the Dark Side to save his wife, Senator Amidala (Luke and Leia’s mum), trades Obi-Wan in for Darth Sidious, and there you have the creation of one of the best (or is it worst?) baddies ever – Darth Vader.
