From the first time he strode through Princess Leia's ship to when he lay dying in his son's arms, Vader has fascinated me. After seeing the child he was before his fearsome transformation into the Dark Lord of the Sith, I couldn't help but wonder what might have caused such a young hopeful to become a symbol of terror. This is my take on how this might have occurred. Of course, this is only my way of expressing it.
As with all fanfic, Vader, the name Skywalker, Darth Sidious/Palpatine, Amidala, Obi-Wan, Qui-Gon and all the others belong to George Lucas and I have no intention of making any profit off this. This story is merely my way of releasing my frustrations with the unseen parts of the Star Wars saga. Thank you, George for the great inspiration to expand on your universe.
