Anakin’s path to the dark side

To fully understand the magnitude of this revelation, it is crucial to trace the path of Anakin Skywalker until he became Darth Vader. Anakin was a powerful Jedi, but tormented by his fear of losing the one he loved most.

These fears led him to a forbidden relationship with Padmé Amidala and dark predictions about his offspring. Amid the chaos of the Clone Wars, Anakin was introduced to Emperor Palpatine, who was secretly a Sith, Darth Sidious.

Palpatine then “seduced” Anakin to the dark side, promising the power to save those he loved from death. Over time, Anakin transformed into Palpatine’s apprentice, Darth Vader, known for his black mask and cape.

After all, his transformation into a Sith, his fall to the dark side, as well as his subsequent servitude to Palpatine represent the turning point in his life.

As such, he hates the Emperor not only for the role he played in his transformation, but also for having manipulated and destroyed his previous life as Anakin Skywalker.
