Once a slave on Tatooine, Anakin was prophesied to bring balance to the Force, though he later became one of the most powerful users of the Dark Side in the galaxy.

Anakin Skywalker was the main protagonist of Star Wars Episodes I-III and became the Sith Darth Vader, villain of the Original Trilogy. He was

the father of Luke and Leia, who are born at the end of Episode III to his wife Padme, who Anakin killed in a rage after turning to the Dark Side of the Force.

This tag should be used for questions specifically about Anakin Skywalker, before he

became Darth Vader. Use the [darth-vader] tag for questions about him in Episodes IV-VI, when he is clad in the big black armor stuff.
