Luke Skywalker is a Jedi Master and head of the Jedi Academy, and is encountered throughout the game.
Luke Skywalker was born on Polis Massa on 19 BBY[Before Battle of Yavin] to the Jedi Knight Anakin Skywalker and Padme Amidala. However shortly after his mother died Obi-Wan Kenobi and Yoda had decided to seperate the boy from his twin sister, Leia, and they eventually decided to bring Luke to Tatooine and Leia to Alderaan.
A New HopeEdit
Eventually by the age of 19 he met Obi-Wan [who was nicknamed Ben at the time], who had been hiding on the planet Lukes whole life. Luke then left the planet with his new droids C-3PO, R2-D2 and the smugglers Han Solo, Chewbacca and also his new master Ben Kenobi too get to Alderaan. Upon arriving at the system Luke and his party was shocked when they realized Alderaan had vanquished, but suddenly a Space station had used a tractor beam on their ship. Ben decided to split up from the rest, so he could disable the tractor beam on the Death Star. Luke, Han, and Chewbacca eventually found a Princess called Leia, who they were looking for, and left. Upon arriving at their ship however, Ben Kenobi was slain by the infamous Darth Vader. Luke then left, and so they decided to go to Yavin 4, the Rebel base. However, the Death Stars crew had placed a tracking device on the ship, eventually leading them to be found. The Death Star then arrived at Yavin 4, but thankfully R2-D2 had the Death Star plans in his memory, allowing Red Squadron, along with their new member, Luke to destroy the Death Star. Luke then arrived at the Death Stars weakpoint, and destroyed it. He then landed on the surface and recieved a medal for his heroics, along with Chewbacca and Han Solo, who had saved him from the infamous Darth Vader priot to the Death Stars destruction.
