Spotlight on Luke Skywalker

Character Name: Luke Skywalker
Birth Year: 19 BBY
Home World: Tatooine
Species: Human
Profession: Moisture Farmer, Space Pilot, Rebel Alliance Leader, Jedi Knight
Portrayed by: Mark Hamill

It can't be easy to find out that your arch-enemy is also your father. Or that the girl you think you are in love with is really your sister. Or that the ancient Jedi Master you seek to learn the ways of the force from is a short green creature who speaks in riddles. Or that you are the only one who can take out the mammoth Death Star. Such are the trials of our young hero from Tatooine.

It's an age old story ... a young farm boy yearns to leave home and go in search of adventure. As the saying goes, be careful what you wish for.

The force is strong in this one ... our hero, Luke Skywalker.
