Jlopes Blog Post 5

Anakin Skywalker from the famous movies Star Wars is probably one of my favorite characters of all time. There needs almost no introduction but Anakin is a slave who is found to have a high count of midi-chlorians (force energy lets say) and is trained to become a Jedi. He is the child of the prophecy but of course what no one knew was how he would fulfill his destiny. Of course Anakin becomes Darth Vader and the rest is history but how he becomes Darth Vader is brilliant. Anakin Skywalker is one of the best written antagonist/protagonists/love interests I think I have ever seen. His complexity and reason for going to the dark side is understandable. His mother, still a slave later dies as soon as he comes back for her, and Anakin is willing to do anything this time to save Padme, his wife, from death. Little does he know that converting to the dark side and trying to save her, actually leads him to accidentally kill her (OEDIPUS ANYONE?!) .

We feel sympathy and empathy for this character. Having lost his mother we understand that the next most important woman in his life must live, or he will go mad. Also in this movie we are informed he is the child of the prophecy, meant to bring balance to the force. However he does so when he is an old man, still fulfilling the prophecy, but millions and millions of lives were killed by his hands in the process. The factors that shape him are both interior and exterior. He battles his Jedi emotions and also looses his arm many times which makes him a bit mechanic and shows his partial transformation into the dark suit we all know and love. He (to me) is the most complete character and a much more modern Oedipus, except he kills everyone in stead of being banished.
