"I am a Jedi, like my father before me."
- Luke Skywalker, Star Wars: Episode 6 - Return of the Jedi

Luke Skywalker was the son of Padme Amidala, galactic senator and former queen of Naboo, and Anakin Skywalker, a former child slave who would become the Sith Lord Darth Vader.

Luke's mother died while giving birth, and he was separated from Leia, his twin sister. Luke was raised by his Aunt Beru and Uncle Owen on his father's homeworld, the desert planet of Tatooine. As a young man, he traveled with Ben Kenobi, who taught him the ways of the Force. Later, the Jedi Master Yoda completed his training.

Color Luke and his lightsaber. His garments on Tatooine were sandy shades of brown and tan, but he also wore solid black outfits. When he first began his Jedi training, he used his father's blue lightsaber, which he lost after his Bespin duel with Darth Vader. When he constructed his own lightsaber, its blade was green.
