Spotlight on Palpatine / Darth Sidious


Character Name: Palpatine / Darth Sidious
Birth Year: 82 BBY
Home World: Naboo
Species: Human
Profession: Senator, Supreme Chancellor, Emperor, Sith Lord
Portrayed by: Ian McDiarmid
Appeared in: The Phantom Menace, Attack of the Clones, Revenge of the Sith, The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi

He held many positions ... Senator, Supreme Chancellor of the Galactic Republic, Emperor of the Galactic Empire and Dark Lord of the Sith. Unfortunately, he used none of them for good. His lust for ultimate power left much murder and disaster in its wake.

As he explains to Anakin ... all who gain power are afraid to lose it. And truer words were never spoken.

His spectre loomed large in every episode, although he didn't actually appear in Episode IV. We give you Emperor Palpatine.
