The Chosen One.

A slave on Tatooine until being found by Qui-Gon Jinn and brought to the Jedi, becoming the apprentice of Obi-Wan Kenobi. Anakin became dubbed 'Hero of No Fear' during the Clone War and fought in many battles. He also had a secret marriage to Padme Amidala, one which played a key role in his fall. As the war ended, Anakin fell to the Dark Side due to the manipulations of Darth Sidious, and became Darth Vader. He led the assault on the Jedi Temple but soon afterward defeated by Obi-Wan on Mustafar, forcing him into a mechanical suit. He spent the next two decades as Darth Vader, terror of the galaxy.

Then he encountered his son, Luke, trained as a Jedi by Obi-Wan and Yoda, and an adversary of Vader's. However, when Luke faced both Vader and Sidious on the second Death Star, Vader chose his son over his master, killing the Emperor to save his son. But in doing so bringing about his own end.

However, in Echoes and Crossroads Canon, he survives and later goes on to train and protect generation after generation of his descendants.
