The main protagonist of the original film trilogy of the Star Wars franchise.
Luke Skywalker was a Force-sensitive Human male Jedi Master. He was the son of fallen Jedi Knight Anakin Skywalker and Senator Padmé Amidala, the grandson of Shmi Skywalker Lars, the step-nephew to Owen and Beru Lars, and the twin brother of Leia Organa. Born on the asteroid Polis Massa, Luke’s mother died in labor, and the twins were thought to never have been born by his father, the recently christened Sith Lord Darth Vader. Skywalker was separated from his sister and taken by Jedi Master Obi-Wan Kenobi to the planet Tatooine to be raised by the Lars family, hidden from the Galactic Empire.
