"It is time, for the Jedi to end."

- Luke Skywalker

Luke Skywalker was a legendary war hero, the son of Anakin Skywalker and Padmé Amidala, and Jedi Knight who helped defeat the Galactic Empire in the Galactic Civil War. He later trained as the master of another Jedi Order which was wiped out by one of the students - Ben Solo, after he turned to the dark side.

Birth and Separation from Leia

Luke and his sister Leia were born on Pollis Massa, their mother Padmé Amidala dying minutes afterwards. While Bail Organa took Leia as his own, Obi-Wan Kenobi took Luke to Tatooine and to Owen and Beru Lars. Obi-Wan went into exile on Tatooine while Yoda went to Dagobah.

Life on Tatooine

Luke grew up on the Lars Moisture Farm, believing that his father had been a navigator on a space freighter during the Clone Wars.

That night, R2-D2 went looking for the Jedi Master, Luke and Threepio went after him the next morning. Kenobi saved the three from some Tusken Raiders by using the sound of a Krayt Dragon to scare them off. Luke was taken to Obi-Wan's hut, where they viewed the message and Luke was given his fathers lightsaber. He was told that his father had been a Jedi Knight and Darth Vader had killed him. When Kenobi and Skywalker found the remains of the Jawas that the Sandtroopers had slaughtered, Luke realised that they would have gone to his home next and races off. When he arrived, the farm was burnt and his Uncle and Aunt dead. He agreed upon return to go to Alderaan with Obi-Wan.

Mission to Mos Eisley

They arrived at Mos Eisley and were stopped by a Sandtrooper squad that asked to see the Droid's identifications but Obi-Wan used the force to convince the Squad Leader that he didn't need to see them, waving his hand. The Sandtroopers left and Luke, Obi-Wan and the droids continued on their way. Reaching the Mos Eisley Cantina, they searched for a pilot to transport them to Alderaan. In order to deal with smuggler, Han Solo and his first mate Chewbacca, Obi-Wan offered 17,000 credits with 2000 up front. Luke sold his speeder and payed Solo the 2000 and they walked to the docking bay. They were followed by Garindan, who alerts the Sandtroopers of their position. They escaped in the Millennium Falcon just as the Sandtroopers arrived. They evaded some Star Destroyers in space and jumped to hyperspace.

Arrival aboard the Death Star

Upon arrival, the group realised that Alderaan is gone and followed a lone TIE Fighter towards what looked like a small moon. However it wasn't a moon and the Falcon got pulled towards the Death Star by a tractor beam. Obi-Wan went in alone to disable the Tractor Beam so they could escape.

However when R2-D2 found Luke's lightsaber, the arena fell into chaos. Han, Leia, Chewbacca and Sana Starros arrive and since blasters were rendered useless by a shut down they picked up lightsabers from Grakkus's collection and began to fight their way around the Imperial Troops.

Luke faces Vader on Cloud City

Luke arrived on Cloud City and briefly saw the Imperials taking Leia, Chewbacca and escorting a carbonite Han away. Leia yelled a warning as Boba Fett attacked from behind. After leading Luke towards the chamber where Han had been put in carbonite, Fett left to finish his job and deliver Solo to Jabba. Vader waited for Luke in the chamber and they face off. Even though Vader still bested Luke, the young Rebel put up a decent fight. Luke was pushed into the Carbonite Freezer but he leapt out as Vader used the force to push the lever, holding onto the roof. Vader didn't notice the boy was gone until he saw the Carbonite Freezer empty.

The Truth Revealed

The fight led to another hallway, where Vader used the force to send items flying at Luke. They fought their way out onto a catwalk above a massive shaft that led to the bottom of the city and Vader finally cut off Luke's hand. Vader tried to lure Skywalker to the Dark Side and when Luke accused the Sith Lord of killing his father, Vader revealed that he was Luke's father. Clinging onto the end of the pier, Luke dropped down the shaft after his fallen lightsaber and grabbed hold of an antenna at the bottom to prevent himself from falling to the surface of the planet. Leia sensed Luke with the force and turned the Millennium Falcon around to pick him up.

New Hand

Luke gained a new robotic hand from a Surgical Droid and started to come up with a plan to free Han from Jabba where Boba had taken him as Chewbacca and Lando Calrissian, who had joined the rebels on Cloud City, set out in the Falcon to find his location.

Return to Tatooine

Luke once again returned to Ben Kenobi's hut where he used spare parts and the force to construct his own lightsaber with a green crystal. He received word that Leia and Chewbacca had failed to rescue Solo and had been also captured.

Mission to Rescue Han from Jabba

Luke was forced to enter the palace himself and gave Jabba a single warning. Jabba just laughed and as Luke grabbed a blaster, the Rancor pit opened. Luke fell into it as well as a Gamorean Guard who was eaten by the monster. He managed to kill it by slamming the blast door on it's head. The prisoners were taken on the sail barge to be thrown into the Great Pit of Carkoon which was the home to the Sarlaac where they would be digested over 1000 years slowly.

Battle of the Great Pit of Carkoon


Luke faces Jabba's thugs

Leia, who was now Jabba's slave, C-3PO, who was now Jabba's translator, and R2-D2, who was now a drink server aboard the barge, watched as Luke, Han and Chewbacca were taken into position to be pushed off the skiffs. When a Weequay Skiff Guard began to push Luke towards the edge, Jabba let the prisoners shout out pleas. Luke told the Hutt that he had one final chance. After Jabba gave the order, the Skiff Guard pushed Luke onto the plank and Luke signaled R2 who was on top of the sail barge. Luke leapt off, grabbed hold of the end of the board and sprung back into the air, flipping and grabbing his lightsaber which R2 launched towards him before he started to fight the thugs on the skiff. Lando revealed himself as one of the skiff guards and started fighting with Han and Chewbacca. Luke fought Boba who fired his grappling hook and wrapped it around the Jedi. Luke chopped through it and Boba fell to the floor of the skiff. Luke jumped to the other skiff killing the guards and thugs on it and then jumped to the sail barge. Han accidentally knocked Boba Fett's jetpack, who fell into the sarlaac pit to be digested. Leia strangled Jabba and made her way to the top deck. Luke and Leia swung across to the skiff with Han, Lando and Chewie after pointing the main gun at the deck and shooting. They picked up the droids who had fallen off the barge and then left as the sail barge exploded.

Death of Yoda

Luke left for Dagobah with R2-D2 and the others left to join the Rebel Fleet in the Millennium Falcon.

Another Discovery

Yoda told him that there is another Skywalker with his last breath and then died. His body disappeared and his cloak fell into a pile. Luke walked out of the hut unsure of what to do. Obi-Wan appeared to him and Luke was annoyed that the Jedi Master had lied to him about Darth Vader. Obi-Wan told him that what he said was true from a certain point of view. Luke suddenly realised that Leia was the other Skywalker, his sister as if a message through the force.

Return to the Rebellion

Luke reunited with Leia, Han, Lando and Chewbacca on Home One, the Rebel flagship and they were briefed on the attack plan for the attack on the second Death Star by Admiral Gial Ackbar, General Crix Madine and Mon Mothma. While Lando and Nien Nunb flew the Millennium Falcon, Luke traveled with Han, Leia, Chewie and the droids along with a squad of Rebel Commandos to the forest moon of Endor where they would attempt to take out the shield generator that was generating the shield around the Death Star.

Chase on Endor

They found a duo of Scout Troopers almost immediately after landing and Han and Chewbacca attempted to take them out but one of them escaped on a speeder bike. Luke and Leia took off on the other bike to follow it. More Scout Troopers came from behind on bikes and eventually Luke and Leia ended up on separate bikes. Luke was forced to jump off his speeder and the remaining Scout Trooper goes in for the kill. Luke activated his lightsaber, deflected the incoming bolts and chopped the speeder as it flew past.

Captured by Ewoks

Skywalker found Han and the others but Leia wasn't with them. While searching for her, the group were caught in an Ewok trap thanks to Chewbacca, and were caught by the furry beasts. They were taken back to Bright Tree Village where Leia had befriended the Ewoks. The Ewoks believed that C-3PO was some sort of god and he was elevated high on a chair while the other three and R2-D2 were tied to tree trunks. In a feast in honour of the golden droid god, Han Solo was to be the be the main course and Luke and Chewie next. Han tried to get the droid to stop them but the ewoks prepared to light the fire, not listening to C-3PO. Luke told threepio to tell them that if they don't let the group go, that he would use special powers. The Ewoks listened but Logray, the shaaman ordered them to light the flames. Skywalker used the force to elevate C-3PO into the air which scared the Ewoks and Logray and Chief Chirpa ordered them to be released immediately.

Gaining New Allies

After listening to their story, the Ewoks decided to make the group part of the tribe. Luke walked outside, feeling the presence of Vader, and Leia followed him out. He revealed to her that she was his sister and that he was going to face their father even though she attempted to convince him not to.

Turning Himself over to the Imperials

Luke arrived at the Imperial base where he handed himself over to the Imperials who took him to Darth Vader. Luke let them take his lightsaber, believing that he could turn Vader back to the light side. Vader inspected the new lightsaber and decided that Luke had become a threat and that he would take his son to the second Death Star and his master Darth Sidious would be his new master.

Meeting the Emperor

Once they were aboard the battle station, Sidious tempted Luke to join the dark side. Luke refused to give in and they watched as the Rebel Fleet arrived. Sidious explained that he had allowed the Rebels to discover the second Death Star plans and was leading them into a trap. He also told Luke that a legion of his best troops were on Endor waiting for Han, Leia and Chewbacca. He sensed that Luke wished to take his lightsaber which was sitting on the Emperor's throne and kill him which pleased the old Sith Lord and he tried to convince Skywalker to do so, telling him that his journey to the dark side would then be complete.

Last Duel with Vader

Vader Luke Return of the jedi

Moments before Luke slices off his father hand

Luke, after much hesitation, used the force and took his lightsaber, activating it. Vader activated his own and blocked Luke's blow at his master. The two had an intense duel which resulted in Luke deactivating his lightsaber and refusing to fight. Luke was forced to reactivate it when Vader swung his saber at the him. The fight continued but Luke eventually flipped up onto a high platform. Vader threw his lightsaber and Luke dodged but the lightsaber hit the support poles and the platform fell. Luke hid from Vader as he searched for his son and Luke accidentally gave away through the force that he had a sister. Vader called out that if Luke wouldn't turn to the dark side, then his sister might. Luke turned on his sword once again and charged at Vader in rage, and they duelled once last time. Ending up back near the throne, Luke cut of Vader's robotic hand.

The Emperor punishes Luke


Anakin once more

When the Emperor suggests he kill his father and take his place as the Sith apprentice, Luke refused and tossed his lightsaber away, declaring that he was a Jedi like Anakin Skywalker had been before him. The Emperor finally got mad, giving up on turning him to the dark side.

Never. I'll never turn to the Dark Side. You've failed, your highness. I am a Jedi, like my father before me. So be it... Jedi!

- Luke Skywalker and Darth Sidious'

Luke redeems his Father

Sidious sent force lightning at Luke who cried out in agony as Vader watched. Finally Vader used the good in him, became Anakin Skywalker once more and saved his son from death by grabbing the Emperor and tossing him down a nearby shaft, killing him. Luke took off Anakin's helmet so he could look out of his real eyes at Luke. Anakin died soon after and Luke escaped with his body on an Imperial shuttle just as Wedge and Lando destroyed the battle station and escaped themselves.

Anakin's funeral

Mission with Shara Bey

Luke Skywalker Shara Bey

Finding the Tree

Luke, R2-D2 and Shara Bey went on an important mission as the New Republic was formed to acclaim a Force Sensitive tree that had been planted inside the Jedi Temple during the days of the Galactic Republic. They succeeded but find two trees instead of one. Luke gave the second tree to Shara, her husband Kes Dameron and their son Poe Dameron, who were being relieved of duty and felt like they were abandoning the Rebels. Luke, following this at some point, revisited Devaron, fulfilling his promise to Farnay.

Luke's New Jedi Order


Luke with R2-D2 some time after the Battle of Endor

Luke started to build a new order, training several new Jedi and rebuilding the Order from the ground up. For some time, Luke's New Jedi Order prospered, later taking on Ben Solo as his apprentice, who was the son of Leia and Han.

Kylo betrays Luke

but Ben Solo, his nephew, turned to the dark side under the influence of the mysterious Snoke. Following this tragedy, Ben became Kylo Ren and led the mysterious Knights of Ren against the new Jedi, destroying them. Luke traveled to the First Jedi Temple to go into exile. Kylo and Snoke worked to find Luke while building the First Order.

Leia's Search for Luke

Leia, now leading the Resistance, wished to find her brother. A force sensitive, Rey, found Luke Skywalker's lightsaber on Takodana and faced Kylo on Starkiller Base after he killed Luke's old friend Han Solo who was Ren's father.

Rey discovers Luke

R2-D2 awakened and uncovered a map of Luke's location. R2 traveled with Rey and Chewbacca to find the Jedi Master. They arrived and returned the lightsaber to its true owner.

Meeting Rey

Luke took the saber and then tossed it aside. She attempted to get him to return with her to the Resistance but he refused. When Chewbacca turned up, Luke asked where Han was. He explained what had happened with Ben Solo to Rey and why the Jedi way needed to end.

Talking with Yoda

Rey believed that Kylo Ren could be turned back to the light but Luke didn't agree. Yoda's force ghost appeared to Luke and told him that Rey was their last hope and that he needed to succeed with her where he failed in Ben Solo.


Luke used his force-abilities to project an image of himself across the galaxy to Crait where he reunited with Leia and distracted the First Order forces while the survivors of the Resistance fled in the Millennium Falcon. Kylo Ren ordered every gun to fire upon him and after they finished Luke just stepped out and brushed himself off. Kylo Ren decided to go face the Jedi Master himself and he tried to duel Skywalker. Luke kept dodging him while the Resistance escaped. He apologised to Kylo for his failure but Ren wasn't interested and eventually ran at Skywalker and went straight through him. Shocked, Kylo poked his lightsaber through Luke's projection a couple more times before Luke said "See you round kid" and disappeared. Back on Ahch-To, Luke had drained all his energy by projecting himself to Crait and as he looked up at the horizon he passed away and became one with the force.

Personalities and Traits

Powers and Abilities

Luke is a reasonably powerful force user but doesn't know how to control it very well in his early stages of becoming a jedi. By the time he contructs his own lightsaber, he has improved in a huge amount and refers to himself as a Jedi Knight although he isn't officially one yet. After he faces his father and the Emperor and refuses the Dark Side, it is unknown where his powers are at.


Coming Soon


Luke Skywalker used an E-11 blaster rifle from a Stormtrooper on the Death Star.

Luke kept a blaster pistol with his lightsaber most of the time during his time with the Rebellion.

Obi-Wan Kenobi handed Luke Skywalker his father Anakin's lightsaber and Luke continued to clumsily use it until his training with Yoda on Dagobah. He became quite strong with it and faced Darth Vader with it on Cloud City. His hand was cut off and the saber fell into the depths of the planet. The saber was returned to him over thirty years later by Rey.

Having lost his father's blade, Luke constructed a new one on Tatooine with a green focusing crystal. He used this lightsaber to help free Han Solo from Jabba the Hutt and also during the Battle of Endor, on the moon and on the Death Star against his father.


Luke flew an X-wing starfighter during the Battle of Yavin and successfully destroyed the Death Star with it. He flew his X-wing many times after that, after the Battle of Hoth and from Dagobah to Cloud City.

Luke had a landspeeder on Tatooine before he sold it for money to pay Han Solo.

Skywalker Apocalypse

Jedi Master Luke Skywalker on the book cover of Fate of the Jedi: Apocalypse

The Legends version of Luke Skywalker isn't much different, only he successfully rebuilds the Jedi Order and defends it against many dark side users including Dark Jedi, assassins and the Lost tribe of the Sith. It wasn't until much much later during the time of Cade Skywalker who was at least Luke Skywalker's great grandson, that Luke was revealed to be dead although the gap in between the legacy comics and the fate of the jedi series hadn't yet been filled in to decide his fate.
