Anakin Skywalker falls in love with Padme Amidala and later becomes Darth Vader Anakin Skywalker
At age nine the young Anakin Skywalker was an excellent podracer and brilliant with all things technical.

He built the droid C-3PO himself to help his mother about the house!

It was through podracing he was able to win his freedom and leave his native Tatooine to train as a Jedi.

However, he was unable to win the freedom of his mother, Shmi. This, of course, was something which upset him greatly.

Jedi Qui-Gon Jinn believed Anakin to be the Chosen One spoken of in an ancient prophecy, the one who would bring balance to the Force.

Anakin was to be looked after by Qui-Gon, but Darth Maul changed things by killing Qui-Gon in a battle.

As Qui-Gon lay dying, he begged Obi-Wan Kenobi to take the young Anakin as his student and to train him as a Jedi.

Young Anakin meets Queen Amidala and they become friends. When they are both adults, they fall in love.

But war took over the galaxy as it changed from Republic to Empire, and Anakin turned to the dark side of the Force.

He became Darth Vader, servant of the evil Emperor Palpatine.
