Typical Jedi. You say that only the Sith deal in absolutes, yet everything is black and white with you people.
Anakin Skywalker was a Force-sensitive Human male who served the Galactic Republic as a Jedi Knight. Born to the slave Shmi Skywalker, Anakin was conceived by midi-chlorians, the symbiotic organisms that allowed individuals to touch the Force, and he and his mother were brought to the desert planet of Tatooine to be the slaves of Gardulla the Hutt. They soon ended up as the property of the Toydarian Watto, and Skywalker exhibited exceptional piloting skills and a reputation for being able to build and repair anything even at a young age. Ten years before the start of the Clone Wars, Skywalker encountered the Jedi Qui-Gon Jinn and Padmé Amidala, and he helped them secure the parts they needed for their starship by winning the Boonta Eve Classic podracing event—only to learn that he had also won his freedom in doing so.
Reluctantly leaving his mother behind, Skywalker accompanied Jinn and his group to the Republic's capital of Coruscant and participated in the Battle of Naboo, helping to free Amidala's homeworld from the armies of the Trade Federation. While Jinn was killed during the battle, Jinn's student Obi-Wan Kenobi followed Jinn's wishes and took on Skywalker as his Padawan, and much of the Jedi Council believed that Skywalker was the Chosen One of Jedi prophecy: one who would bring balance to the Force by destroying the Sith Order. Skywalker and Kenobi had a number of adventures during the Padawan's decade of training to become a Jedi, but as the Separatist Crisis threatened to tear the Republic apart in 22 BBY, Skywalker was reunited Amidala when he was assigned to protect her from assassins. The two grew close during the course of the assignment, though they were caught up in the Battle of Geonosis and the beginning of the Clone Wars between the Republic and the Confederacy of Independent Systems. Losing an arm during the fighting, Skywalker received a cybernetic replacement, and he and Amidala were secretly married in the days after the battle despite the Jedi Code's restrictions on attachments.
During the Clone Wars, which raged for the next three years, Skywalker was granted the rank of Jedi Knight and became known to the public as the "Hero with No Fear." Taking on the Togruta Ahsoka Tano as his apprentice, Skywalker fought alongside Kenobi and his fellow Jedi in scores of battles, and his friendship with Supreme Chancellor Palpatine deepened despite the Jedi Order's wariness of Palpatine's rapid acquisition of further powers during the Clone Wars.
However things changed for Anakin while he was at the strange world called Mortis. While there the being known as the Son turned him to the dark side by showing the Chosen One a partial glimpse of the future that awaited him. Filled with both fear and anguish over what he would become, Anakin in a desperate attempt to stop that future from coming to pass agreed to join the Son.
Thankfully a short while later, the Father confronted Anakin and knew what his Son had done. To that end the Father had very few options left in regards as what to do about his Son's actions. At first the Father was going to erase what Skywalker had seen in order to restore the balance in the young Chosen One's destiny, but changed his mind at the last second and decided to allow Anakin to see what the Son had not shown him. To that end, Anakin saw both his fall to the dark side, and his redemption while trying to save his future Son from being killed by Sidious.
This vision of both his fall into darkness and his redemption caused a great change in Anakin, however he was also very unsure of who he really was. To that end, Anakin realized that he had to leave the Order behind for a time. However he also knew that he needed to stop Sidious before the Sith Lord destroys the Republic.
The Skywalker Chronicles Volume 1
- Obi-Wan Kenobi: "I have concerns about Anakin, whatever it was that he saw on Mortis has caused him great pain."
- Yoda: "Know this the council does, concerned we also are. Watched closely he must be."
- Obi-Wan Kenobi: "What about his desire to leave the Order for a while."
- Yoda: "Allow it we should not, but too popular he is. If hold him against his will we do, cause more problems it may. Allow him to go off alone we will not. Go with him his padawan will, and assign another to watch over him we will. Concerned the council is that twisted by the dark side, young Skywalker may become."
An Old Friend Returns
After experiencing his own dark future, Anakin found himself wondering about who and what he now was. Despite knowing that he needed to prevent the dark future that he knew was coming, he had no idea of what he was supposed to do once he'd stopped the Sith. His concerns about what the Jedi Order was becoming also added to his frustration.
Much to Anakin's surprise, shortly after the events that had transpired on Mortis the Force Ghost of Jedi Master Qui-Gon Jinn appeared before him. Qui-Gon told Anakin he was wrong about many things involving the prophecy that surrounded the Chosen One and that he was there to help Anakin take his first steps down a new path.
For Anakin to begin this new path however, Qui-Gon informed him that he needed to leave the Order for a while so that he can do what needed to be done without the Council's interference.
Rescuing A Jedi Master
While the Jedi Council began investigating the Chancellor, Anakin and Obi-Wan would be assigned to rescue a Jedi Master by the name of Even Piell who was in possession of information that could be extremely dangerous if the Separatist's were able to extract it from the Jedi Master.
The Fall Of Sidious
While Anakin had been on the mission to rescue Even Piell, the Jedi Council began a deep investigation into Chancellor Palpatine using the information that they'd received from the Chosen One.
Several weeks after beginning their investigation the Council get the evidence they need when one of their spies intercept a transmission between Palpatine and Dooku where they talk about the next phase of their plans. Knowing that time is running out the Council decree that Palpatine was to be stopped at any cost.
Unfortunatly for the Council, Anakin steps in and tells them not to go after Palpatine. This conversation results with Anakin having to tell the council just what it is that Palpatine is truly capable of and that the Sith Lord was powerful enough to take out most, if not all of the entire Jedi Council. This news shocked the Council and left Anakin with no other choice but to face Palpatine alone as he knew that with his own knowledge of the Dark Side thanks to his memories of the future that he was the only one who had a chance at stopping the Sith Lord.
