Spotlight on Darth Vader

Character Name: Darth Vader
Birth Year: 40 BBY
Home World: Tatoonie
Species: Half Man/Half Machine
Profession: Sith Lord, Evil Henchmen
Portrayed by: David Prowse/James Earl Jones (voice)
Appeared in: Revenge of the Sith, A New Hope, The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi

Obi-Wan Kenobi tells Luke that Darth Vader is more machine than man. But Darth Vader's great love Padme thought that there was still good in him and his long-lost son would come to believe the same thing. We didn't know it in 1977 but the story of the Star Wars saga is ultimately the tale of the truly evil Darth Vader's redemption and return to the good side of The Force.
