Bio –

Luke Skywalker is the son of Anakin Skywalker (Darth Vader) and Padme Amidala, however Padme died in childbirth and Vader does not know that Luke exists. Because of that Luke was raised by his uncle named Owen. In addition to that Obi Wan Kenobi (Vader’s old master) has watched over Luke since birth. Luke was a good pilot and always wanted to join the resistance in order to fight the oppressive Empire. When Luke was less than a year from being able to move out and join the rebellion, Uncle Owen bought a few droids that (unknown to him) had top secret plans for the Empire’s next mega weapon. The droid had gotten order to deliver them to Obi Wan, as he was in a position to help get the plans back to the rebellion. Because of that the droid (R2-D2) ran off to find Obi Wan. Luke, not wanting to get in trouble with his uncle, went after him. Luke was attacked by some sand people from which Obi Wan (Ben Kenobi) saved Luke and the droids. Ben told Luke of his father and he told Luke that Vader killed his father (from a certain point of view), and he gave Luke his father’s old lightsaber.

Upon returning home Luke found that his family had been killed so he joined Ben to get the plans back to the rebels. Luke ended up joining the group of rebels to attack the Empire’s new mega weapon the Death Star. While on the mission is when Vader first verbally noticed that Luke was strong in the force and until the next time that they met, Vader didn’t tell Luke that he is his father. Shortly after the Death Star was destroyed Luke found Yoda and received Jedi training, however he did not complete the training as he saw that in the future Han Solo, and Leia Organa were being tortured and he went to save them. While trying to save them he had a run in with Darth Vader in person, where he found out the truth about his father and had his hand cut off. Vader unsuccessfully tried to have Luke join him and Luke narrowly escaped.

Luke then went on to embrace the teachings of the Jedi despite Yoda having died after he left, and shortly after Vader had died Luke started a school to teach people about the force. However, the plan ended in disaster when the Knights of Renn killed or assimilated nearly everyone involved with his school. Luke then went into hiding for many years.
