Luke Skywalker, son of Jedi Knight Anakin Skywalker and Senator Padme Amidala, and twin brother of Princess Leia Organa, is a force-sensitive human male, and would go on to become a one of the most powerful Jedi Masters and prominent figure in aiding The Alliance in the Galactic Civil War, defeating the Galactic Empire.
After the death of his mother and the fall of his father to the dark side, Luke and Leia are seperated and sent into hiding. Leia is adopted by the royal family of Alderaan where she becomes the child of Bail Organa, and Luke is raised by his relatives on Tatooine. Longing to have a greater purpose in life, Luke joins The Alliance, learning the ways of the Force under his mentor and friend, Jedi Knight Obi-Wan Kenobi.
During the Battle of Yavin, with the help of Leia, Luke destroys the Death Star, a superweapon that was capable of destroying worlds, saving the Alliance from total annihilation. After the Battle of Yavin, Luke wanted to learn more about the ways of the Jedi and become a Jedi Knight like Anakin. So, he found a new master and teacher, Master Yoda, who would train him to become a Jedi Knight and eventually a legendary Jedi Master.
Luke fought with The Alliance in the Battle of Endor, where he would meet and fight Darth Vader, the all powerful Sith Lord, during which he learns the truth about Darth - that he is actually his own father, Anakin Skywalker. With the help of Luke, Darth Vader returns to the Light Side of the Force, destroying the Emperor and sacrificing himself in the process, thus, fulfilling his prophecy as the Chosen One.
After the fall of the Sith and Galactic Empire, Luke seeks for assistance in the form of knowledge from around the galaxy with his apprentice and nephew Ben Solo, with hopes of restoring the Jedi Order. Ben Solo falls to dark side, leaving Luke in an unstable state of mind and he decides to exile himself away from everything and everyone he knew, ignoring the calls for help to fight against the First Order. After the defeat of the New Republic by the First Order, a series of events leads Luke back into one last battle against the Dark Side. The impact of Luke's death was the rise of rebellions again against the First Order, with the help of his final Jedi apprentice, Rey.
