Ich habe mal aus der Datenbank von StarWars.com ein paar EP3 relevante Sachen rausgesucht. Einige von euch werden sagen, dass das EU ist, aber vergesst nicht, dass GL einen Roman benutzt, um einen Charakter sowie eine Organisation, die in EP2 auftauchen werden, einzuführen. Vielleicht finden sich in den folgenden Punkten, ein paar Antworten zu EP3. Sie sind unterteilt in Off und EU. EU Alderaan During the Clone Wars, violence and warfare almost destroyed Alderaan. As a result, Viceroy and First Chairman Bail Organa outlawed all weapons, and declared a state of peace. Offiziell Obi Wan Kenobi He took the young boy, Luke, to live with Owen and Beru Lars, moisture farmers on Tatooine. The young girl, Leia, was taken to Viceroy Bail Organa of Alderaan, whom Obi-Wan had served during the Clone Wars. As the Jedi's ranks were wiped out by the machinations of the emergent Empire, Obi-Wan went into hiding on Tatooine. He would stay there for decades, adopting the name of Ben. EU Obi Wan While on a mission to see a young Bail Organa, Kenobi saved Captain Quasar's pleasure cruiser from the dreaded Merson pirates. With notable missions to worlds as scattered as Zonama Sekot and Skye, Obi-Wan eventually ascended to the rank of General. It is all the more tragic then that he should be responsible, in part, for the fall of the Jedi and the Republic. It was his successes that fueled the pride that would trigger his own downfall. Offiziell Palpatine Despite his promises, the Republic continued to be mired in strife and chaos. In an effort to counter this, Palpatine instituted a military build-up unprecedented in galactic history. He created the New Order, a Galactic Empire that ruled by tyranny. The Jedi Knights, his biggest threat, were extinguished by his greatest dark side pupil: Anakin Skywalker, who had become Darth Vader. Offiziell Anakin Skywalker History is spotty as to the events that followed this fateful development. As turmoil engulfed the galaxy during the transition from Republic to Empire, Anakin fell to the dark side of the Force. Consumed by evil, Anakin abandoned his past and his humanity. He became Darth Vader, Dark Lord of the Sith, apprentice to the evil Emperor Palpatine. Sustaining greivous injuries at the hands of his former master, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Vader required cybernetic enhancements and replacements to sustain him. His pure innocent self seemingly lost forever, Darth Vader cast a dark pall over the galaxy, as he was one of the foremost agents responsible for the elimination of the Jedi order. Offiziell Yoda When the Empire arose from the ashes of the Republic, the Emperor's agents set out to slaughter the Jedi. Yoda went into hiding on the distant swamp world of Dagobah. There, he waited patiently for a new hope to arise and end the dark side threat to the people of the galaxy. Offiziell Jedi Order When the Empire came to power, the Jedi order was exterminated by Emperor Palpatine, and his Sith Lord apprentice Darth Vader. During the time of the Galactic Civil War, the Jedi were all but extinct. A few survivors, Obi-Wan Kenobi and the Jedi Master Yoda, were able to train the first new Jedi in a generation. Offiziell Darth Vader Skywalker was seduced by the dark side of the Force. Fueled by rage and discontent with the pace of Obi-Wan's training, Anakin challenged his master to a duel. Despite newfound power bestowed by the dark side of the Force, which added to his already formidable abilities, Anakin was grievously wounded in the fight. His burning anger kept him alive, and he was forever scarred not only by his wounds but also by betrayal. He abandoned his former identity. When metal coupled with flesh in the form of cyborg implants and enhancements required to sustain him, Skywalker's transformation was complete. He was no longer Anakin. He was Darth Vader. Offiziell Leia What wasn't common knowledge was that Leia was born to Anakin Skywalker, a Jedi pupil who succumbed to the dark side and became Darth Vader. She was one of a set of twins, born in secrecy and protected from Vader and the Emperor. The Jedi hero and general, Obi-Wan Kenobi, secretly transported Leia and her mother to the planet Alderaan, where she was to be raised by Kenobi's friend Bail Organa. The boy, Luke, was taken to the distant world of Tatooine. Leia has few memories of her true mother, Padmé Amidala. All that Leia can recall is that she was beautiful, but sad. Bemerkung: Eine der interessantesten Sachen: Obi-Wan bracht Leia UND ihre Mutter zum Planeten Alderaan. EU Tarkin During the waning days of the Republic, he made valuable contacts in Palpatine's senate, and in the world of corporate interests. When Palpatine restructured the galactic government, Tarkin was granted command of the Seswenna sector. This came on the heels of an outrage orchestrated by Tarkin on the distant world of Ghorman. Tarkin landed his vessel on a platform filled with activists protesting Imperial taxation. Rather than be reprimanded for the murder of hundreds, Tarkin was rewarded for orchestrating the Ghorman Massacre, as it later became labeled by the Rebellion.
