As the Clone Wars reach their
final, grim days, the devastated galactic citizens regard Supreme Chancellor
Palpatine as the unwavering defender of the Republic. He has remained in power
long after his term ended in order to see the Clone Wars won and peace restored
to the war-ravaged galaxy. Hidden from all, not even known to his apprentices,
Palpatine is Darth Sidious, Dark Lord of the Sith. Through intricate planning
and dazzling adaptability, the Sith Master rose to the office of Supreme
Chancellor of the Republic, granting him the power necessary to engineer the
Clone Wars and manipulate the Jedi with the firm intent to destroy the Order and
enslave the galaxy.
As the disguised Sith Master, Chancellor Palpatine had many willing servants and
aides. The greatest and most tragic of Palpatine's servants is Anakin Skywalker,
The accomplished young Jedi Knight. Palpatine lures Anakin to the Dark Side with
promises of power over death and the ability to do great good, all the while
planting seeds of doubt and fostering Anakin's growing resentment of his status
within the Jedi Order. Overwhelmed by the fear of loss, the bitterness of
betrayal, and the hunger for power, Anakin falls to the Dark Side. As Darth
Vader, hunter of Jedi and destroyer of the Order, Anakin becomes the grim
enforcer of the Palpatine's will. Anakin's submission enables Palpatine to step
from the shadows and simultaneously declare himself Emperor and order the
destruction of the Jedi Order, confident that his new apprentice will both
execute his plans and protect his master. Darth Vader's black, masked visage is
the symbol of Palpatine's Empire, another tool to be used to maintain power and
impose his will upon the former Republic.
