Darth Vader found a secret apprentice during the reign of the Empire. On a mission from Palpatine on suspicions of a Rouge Jedi on the planet Kashyyyk , Vader discovered this apprentice. His father Kento Marek, the Rouge Jedi, had escaped Order 66 and had traveled through many planets on his way to Kashyyyk were the Rouge had eventually stayed.
After confronting Kento and killing him, Vader took the boy from the prying eyes of Palpatine. After years of training, Vader saw it fit to let his apprentice to hunt down the last of the Jedi. When Starkiller completed his tasks, Vader was ready to initiate his plan to destroy the Emperor. Unfortunately, the Emperor found out and had tailed Starkiller's plane until reaching Vader's private spacecraft. When the Emperor arrived, Vader betrayed and killed his Starkiller to show his loyalty to his master.
He left his Apprentice alive though and when the Emperor left, Vader retrieved Starkiller from the depths of space. He then revived his apprentice and explained his plan for the next attempt which was to start a rebellion. Then he sent his apprentice off. He did not realize though that his Apprentice had feelings for the Pilot Juno Eclipse who had been labeled a traitor to the Empire. Starkiller then broke Juno out of the restraints she was hidden in and started on his mission.
Eventually, Starkiller would discover that Vader never planned to overthrow Palpatine at all or at least with him. It was all part. Vader would later capture the Rebel Alliance and defeat his apprentice once more, but that would prove to be his undoing. Starkiller survived and confronted Vader and the Emperor in the Death Star, sacrificing his life to allow the Rebels to fight another day. For the next few years, Vader would be tasked by the Emperor to quell the attacks from the Rebel Alliance, with little effort.
Vader captured the princess and later brought her to the Death Star, where he and Grand Moff Tarkin interrogated her on the location of the hidden Rebel base. Vader tortured his daughter and forced to see her home planet of Alderaan destroyed. Vader also played a part in the execution of Owen and Beru Lars. He eventually confronted his master in one final duel. Vader allowed Luke and his comrades to escape so he could finally locate the hidden Rebel base. Once the plan worked, the Imperials prepared for battle and confronted the incoming Rebel fleet. During the Battle of Yavin, Vader decided to personally destroy the Rebel starfighters himself.
Vader would return to the Empire and continue his efforts to hunt down the Rebel Alliance and the mysterious Luke Skywalker, who started to plague his mind with so many questions. He would never come into account that Luke and Leia were his children until much later. The Empire had gained strength, so as Luke traveled to Dagobah , in whose swamps Yoda now made his home, to become Yoda's apprentice and continue his training in use of the Force, Han Solo and Leia Organa traveled to Cloud City, in the Bespin system, to meet Han's old friend Lando Calrissian.
However, Vader had tracked the heroes to Cloud City with the help of the Mandalorian bounty hunter Boba Fett and forced up a deal that meant that the Baron Administrator betray them, and the Dark Lord captured them. Vader, wanting to capture Skywalker, decided to test the carbonite freezing on Han Solo, who proved to have a price on his head thanks to Jabba the Hutt , and Fett took him to Jabba. Luke reached Cloud City to save Han or Leia -- but he would eventually engage Vader in a lightsaber battle. Vader's power was much more vast than Luke's, but he did not kill Luke because he wanted Luke to turn to the Dark Side and become an ally of the Empire.
They fought, and Vader eventually slashed off Luke's hand at the wrist, over a balcony, causing Luke to lose the lightsaber that Anakin had meant for him long ago. Vader eventually revealed to Luke his true parentage, but Luke chose death over life as Vader's son, and he let go and fell. He barely survived and escaped Vader and the Empire, much to the Dark Lord's dismay.
More than six months passed. When Luke traveled to the moon of Endor where Vader and the Emperor were, he revealed his acceptance of the fact that Vader had once been Anakin Skywalker, his father, and tried to draw his father back where Kenobi had failed. But aboard the unfinished second Death Star, the Emperor proved to be a dark influence to Luke even when the father and son engaged in their final lightsaber duel.
Vader gains the upper hand until Luke taps into the Dark Side to subdue his father in combat, slicing of his arm. When Luke refused to turn, the Emperor fired Force lightning at him, and was about to kill him as Vader watched. As Luke was being electrocuted, he moaned, "Father, please help me! All the while, Anakin Skywalker had been fighting that which made him Darth Vader. Successfully overcoming what had made him Vader, Anakin seized the Emperor and threw him into the Death Star's power core.
Unfortunately, the lightning short-circuited Anakin's cybernetics. He then died after killing the Emperor and saving his son, who unmasked him to find that his father had still been essentially human all the time. No matter how evil Darth Vader had been, Anakin Skywalker died a hero. His ghost was seen at the Endor celebration.
