Luke Skywalker was a Jedi who helped defeat the Galactic Empire and form the New Republic as well as the New Jedi Order. He was born in 19 BBY was raised on Tatooine to keep him away from Emperor Palpatine and his father who had turned to the Dark side. He was the son of Anakin Skywalker and Padmé Amidala,
In his youth, Luke was often impatient, looking ahead to the future with little regard for his present surroundings. Like his father, he was impulsive, reckless, and often had little regard for his own personal safety. According to Han Solo, his first impression of Luke was a naïve kid who needed to be taught a thing or two. However, as his skills in the Force progressed and after losing a hand to Darth Vader, Luke became more patient and seasoned, and was often seen as having wisdom beyond his years. However, he still retained his idealistic worldview of his youth, believing that Vader was redeemable. This belief would stay with him for his entire life, as he would go so far as to spare the Sith Lumiya because he believed she could be redeemed, despite the fact there was much evidence to the contrary and a pressing need to have her eliminated. Some called Luke naïve for this, although it was actually his kindness and ability to see the good in others that forced him to view others this way. This somewhat soft stance on discipline and errant behavior at the Jedi Praxeum indirectly led to the attacks by the spirit of Exar Kun on his students. Luke, especially after serving the reborn Palpatine as the Sith Lord's apprentice, was often conflicted about his role in the Force and had his judgment clouded, until Mara Jade and Corran Horn helped free him of the dark side's influence. This type of inner conflict would reemerge in the Yuuzhan Vong War, where Luke struggled with how the Jedi should approach the war. Luke was known for being empathetic to his friends and would go to great lengths to help them, whenever he could. At some times, he could be almost passive, serene a result of his mastery of the Force that allowed him to remain calm and in control even in the heat of battle. His loyalty and devotion to his comrades was virtually unshakable, Emperor Palpatine tried to sever his connection to his friends during their confrontation on board the second Death Star, but ultimately failed. Luke's love for his friends and his determination foiled the plans of the evil Sith Lord. After the death of his wife Mara Jade, Luke felt that his world had ended. The weight of his grief would burden him even as the Jedi Order looked to him for leadership and his son Ben fell perilously close to the dark side of the Force. However, Luke would eventually accept that his duty was to lead the Jedi and he returned to the forefront of the order, leading a series of missions against the Sith Lord Darth Caedus.
