STAR WARS - Rise of Rebellion
While many aspects of the prequel trilogy have been kept for the sake simplicity it should not be assumed they are accurate within this campaign universe. The Anakin Skywalker who became Darth Vader was a formidable warrior standing nearly a full two meters tall long before he donned the menacing life support suit and helmet.
Anakin was not from Tattooine and was an accomplished fighter pilot when he met his mentor Obiwan Kenobi. It was Kenobi who was from Tattooine and took Anakin’s son there to hide out after a tragic battle with his former pupil.
Now as Darth Vader he serves the Empire and has hunted down many of the jedi. He has cemented his place beside the Emperor and anticipates one day taking the throne for himself.
