Galaxies Far Away – **WEEK 10

And off we go with Week 10. Two of the most recognizable main characters of the saga, and some of the most fun to design for Janet Lindner. I hope you enjoy these two squares as much as you have the previous ones. And don’t forget….. if the word is underlined in this article, it is most likely a link to the information about the character, where they live, and other interesting facts. Be sure to get a little “clicky” and learn some new things about the entire world of Star Wars.

Darth Vader: (Anakin Skywalker)

Homeworld: Tatooine

Gender: male

Anakin Skywalker, a Force-sensitive human male, was a Jedi Knight of the Galactic Republic and the Chosen One of the Force. During the Clone Wars, his accomplishments as a battlefield commander earned him the Hero With No Fear moniker. After turning to the dark side of the Force, he became known as Darth VaderDark Lord of the Sith and apprentice to the Emperor Darth Sidious.

Interesting Fact:

•his dying wish was to see his son with his own eyes for the first yet also final time. In the end, he died not as Darth Vader but as Anakin Skywalker, the Chosen One who brought balance to the Force by destroying the Sith.

Padmé Amidala:

Homeworld: Naboo

Gender: Female

Padmé was identified early for her potential in public service. Devoting her life to civic duty, she was elected queen and, therefore, adopted the regal name “Amidala” in 32 BBY. Due to the machinations of her advisor, Senator Sheev Palpatine, Amidala’s reign was put to the test by the Trade Federation‘s blockade and subsequent invasion of Naboo.
