A disheveled nine-year-old with blue eyes, Anakin Skywalker is an earnest and hardworking boy who lives in a desert city on Tatooine. He is the son of Shmi Skywalker. A natural mechanic, he has a keen intuition with equipment and machinery. He can sense what makes an engine work. Living in a very humble home, Anakin dreams of becoming a starpilot and longs for a world of adventure. Good at heart, hopeful and optimistic, this young boy little suspects the destiny and fearful challenges that await him.

So he took it upon himself to train him as a Jedi Knight. But somewhere along the line, Anakin was 'seduced' by the Dark Side of the Force. From that moment on, Anakin Skywalker ceased to exist; and Darth Vader was born......and along with the Emperor changed the face of the Galaxy
