Luke Skywalker destroyed the Death Star. Darth Vader tried to lure him to the Dark Side of the Force, but failed. Later, Luke manages to defeat him and bring him back to the good side.

Growing up aware of his origins, Skywalker’s life changed forever with his uncle’s acquisition of two droids, R2-D2 and C-3PO that had Death Star plans. After his aunt and uncle were killed by the imperial troops seeking the plans, Skywalker went on a journey to offer the Rebel Alliance’s plans, receiving training in the Kenobi Force and meeting Han Solo and Princess Leia Organa, member of the Rebellion.

 Although Kenobi was killed by Darth Vader, Skywalker participated in the Battle of Yavin with the rebels, and managed to destroy the Death Star with the help of Kenobi’s spirit.

After the fall of the Empire, Luke founded a new Jedi academy in an attempt to rebuild the Jedi Order. However, he was betrayed by his apprentice and nephew, Ben the man who would become Kylo Ren, who killed the rest of the Padawans and passed over the dark side under the guidance of the mysterious leader Snoke.

Blaming himself, Luke set out in search of the First Jedi Temple. Years later, Luke was found by the sensitive trash can at Force Rey, who followed the map left behind by Luke with the help of R2-D2 and BB-8.

  1. “Even now, at just three years old, it is obvious that Luke longs to fly. It is like seeing Anakin all over again. The mop of unruly blond hair, the bright blue eyes, the hands permanently tinkering. Luke isn’t content to just play with his toys. He’s constantly at work modifying them, making improvements.” ― Cavan Scott

Like that Qom Jha proverb Builder With Vines quoted at us in the caverns, the one about many vines woven together being stronger than the same number used separately. We compliment each other perfectly, Luke, all the way down the line. In many ways, we’re two halves of a single being.” ― Timothy Zahn
