STAR WARS: Darth Vader Was All Padme’s Fault


The sabacc deck was stacked against Anakin Skywalker from the start. Born into slavery, fatherless, the young boy from Tatooine had but one loving influence in his life – his mother. Qui-Gon Jin changed that dynamic by whisking the boy away to be trained in the ways of the Jedi, however. Even Ki Adi Mundi could sense that Anakin’s separation anxiety and mommy issues would be problematic, but by then Anakin’s path was set.

Padmes Fault

From there, there would be three major influences in his life, the pivotal one of the three being primarily responsible for his downfall. Yes, I’ll say it: Darth Vader was all Padme’s fault.
