POTF2 Green Card Luke Skywalker (Jedi Knight)
For over a thousand generations an elite society of warriors known as the Jedi Knights acted as guardians to the Old Republic. They were warriors of light, protectors of freedom and justice. Jedi let the Force flow through them, performing amazing feats of unbelievable power and proportion. The Old Republic flourished under their protection, until the power hungry Emperor Palpatine and a corrupt Jedi known as Darth Vader hunted down and eradicated the order of Jedi Knights. The only ones known to survive were Obi-Wan Kenobi and the Jedi Master Yoda. Thus began the era of the evil Empire.
Years later, the appearance of Luke Skywalker offered new hope. Under the tutelage of Obi-Wan and Yoda, he learned the ways of the Force and became a Jedi Knight.Using his newly-developed powers, Luke successfully led a campaign to rescue Han Solo from the clutches of Jabba the Hutt. After Yoda confirmed what Luke feared most - that Darth Vader was his father - he decided to confront Vader, not to do battle, but to reach whatever good remained in the man once known as Anakin Skywalker. The diabolical Emperor Palpatine wanted Luke's power under his tutelage, but the young Jedi was strong and resisted the potent allure of the dark side - though it nearly cost him his life. When the Emperor rose to annihilate Luke Skywalker, Vader hurled Palpatine to his death, sacrificing himself for his son.
