Hero Overview


Never. I will never turn to the Dark Side. You've failed, Your Highness. I am a Jedi, like my father before me.
~ Luke Skywalker defying Palpatine in Return of The Jedi.
Amazing. Every word of what you just said was wrong. The Rebellion is reborn today. The war is just beginning. And I will not be the last Jedi. (Ren: I'll destroy her, and you, and all of it.) No. Strike me down in anger and I will always be with you. Just like your father. See you around kid.
~ Luke's final words to his nephew before he dies.

Luke Skywalker is one of the protagonists of the Star Wars franchise. He is an incredible Jedi who would grow up to defeat the empire. He is the son of Anakin Skywalker and Padmé Amidala, the second Jedi Padwan of Yoda (after Count Dooku) and the brother of Leia Organa.

Luke is the protagonist of the original trilogy, as well as a cameo character in Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith, the last movie of the prequel trilogy as an infant. He is also a major character in the sequel trilogy, serving as a supporting character in its first chapter, Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens, the titular deuteragonist of its second chapter, Star Wars: Episode VIII - The Last Jedi, and a major character in its upcoming third chapter Star Wars: Episode IX.

He also a cameo in the Star Wars Rebels episode Twin Suns.

He is famously potrayed by Mark Hamill​, who is also well-known for playing numerous different versions of an iconic villain, The Joker. Luke has also been voiced by C. Andrew Nelson, Joshua Fardon, Bob Bergen, Lloyd Floyd, Matt Lanter (who also played his father), Eric Bauza, Christopher Corey Smith and Anthony Hansen.

Personality

Much like his father, Anakin Skywalker, Luke is intelligent, wise, selfless, brave, prideful, impulsive, and loyal. He has a sense of justice, honor and good morals; of course, like his father, he is sometimes overconfident, short-tempered, hot-headed, aggressive, unpredictable, impatient, difficult, and emotionally insecure.

He is known to be rebellious, headstrong, reckless, impulsive, kind and caring, traits he developed from both his parents. He has the ability to see the good in others, and he is not a very good liar.

After losing his right hand to Darth Vader, Luke becomes far more calm, level-headed and patient. Despite the fact that he now has better control over his emotions and temper, then his father was in his youth, Luke still has his moments of losing his patience and temper.

History

Canon

Over the course of his life Luke went from being a well mannered and kind yet occasionally moody and uptight teenager to a calm, level headed and wise man who saw the best in people even if they couldn't, mainly his father and succeeded in bringing him back to the side of good. However later in life after starting the new Jedi academy Luke became embittered and grief stricken when most of his apprentices were slaughtered by his own nephew Ben Solo (Kylo Ren), and went into exile out of his despair.

Luke reached the same age as Obi-Wan Kenobi was when he met him about 34 years after the Battle of Yavin. In that year Luke met a young woman named Rey, and reluctantly educated her in the ways of the Force.

After Rey decided to return to the Resistance, Luke decided to destroy the library containing the original sacred texts of the Jedi Order (not knowing Rey had taken them already). He had a change of heart about doing so, but then Yoda showed up and destroyed the library, saying it was a collection of dusty old books and that there was nothing in the library that Rey did not already possess. Spending a few minutes with his former student, Yoda convinced him to help the Resistance.

Luke used the Force to project himself to Crait, where he confronted his nephew Kylo. Doing so gave the last Resistance members the critical few minutes it needed to escape from Crait. Fatally weakened by the effort, Luke passed away a short time later, becoming one with the Force. His passing was felt by both Leia and Rey, who noted that it was a peaceful, purposeful passing.

Legends

In the years after the Battle of Endor, Luke spent much of his time trying to track down information on the Jedi, including techniques to educate new students in the ways of the Force.

About five years after Endor he met Mara Jade, who was suffering from a command implanted by Palpatine to kill him. Jade was able to fulfill the command by killing a clone of Skywalker.

Skywalker eventually formed a Jedi Praxeum on Yavin 4, and began training a new generation of Jedi. The first group of students he trained would go on to be the core of the New Jedi Order.

Shortly after the Imperial Remnant made peace with the New Republic, Skywalker and Mara Jade were married. The pair had a son named Ben Skywalker prior to Mara's own death in 40ABY.

Luke died some time before 130 ABY, but would return in the form of Force Ghost to plead with his descendant Cade to return to the Jedi in the wake of Sith aggression.

Abilities

  • Lightsaber Skills: Despite his minimal level of training, Luke is highly skilled in lightsaber combat and he is an extremely gifted duelist. After only one brief session with Obi-Wan Kenobi, he was able to hold his own against Darth Vader, a far more experienced and powerful combatant all together, on three different occasions. In the first, though relatively short confrontation, his skill proved inadequate and he was defeated with ease. However, in the second fight, which took place roughly three years later, Luke had greatly improved his technique and he was able to hold his own for much of the duel, even managing to lightly wound Vader's right shoulder. Ultimately, however, Vader once again proved superior and Luke lost the fight, as well as his lightsaber and right hand. In their final duel on the second Death Star, Luke was finally able to overwhelm and defeat Vader, though with extreme effort. With Yoda, Luke also uses his Force powers to not only to increase his physical speed and agility, but also to increase the speed of his attacks, to make his lightsaber combat skills more lethal in combat; this makes him a formidable opponent in single combat. Before he received much training, he relied on his Force sense and his reflexes to use the blade.
