SWSE: [Alterverse] The Search for Luke Skywalker - Episode 2

an Alternate Universe Scenario


'The Search for Luke Skywalker'


It has been 35 years since former Jedi Knight, Anakin Skywalker, and Jedi Master, Mace Windu, defeated the corrupt and evil Chancellor Palpatine in his chambers on the planet Coruscant.

Though tempted to side with the Sith Lord that had twisted his will for years, Anakin Skywalker stayed his hand, and allowed Jedi Master Windu to execute the Grand Chancellor for his crimes against the Jedi and the Republic. After Palpatine's death, the separatist alliance fell apart. A search of the former chancellor's records found the leaders of the separatists gathered on Mustafar, where they were quickly rounded up by the GAR. In three years time - the war would be over; the last pockets of resistence stamped out.

Unable to reconcile the actions of Master Windu - which were naturally accepted by the Jedi Council and the Senate - Anakin grew increasingly furious with the Jedi order in the weeks following Palpatine's death. Insisting time and again that they had acted wrongly and committed what was tantamount to murder, Skywalker conceeded that Palpatine was an evil man, a Sith, but felt his death was improper. He should have been tried for his crimes. In private, despite his knowledge of the man's evil, Anakin had harbored much love for Palpatine.

As his outrage festered, he began to view the Jedi Order as corrupt, hypocritical, and impartial - and in an impassioned speech in the council chambers, one-month after being declared a hero of the Republic, he renounced the code of the jedi.

Fearful of her husband's influence on the twins, and seeing their power grow day by day - Padme finally secreted them away from Naboo shortly before their seventh birthday, to the Jedi Academy on Coruscant. Neither child would see their parents ever again. After Anakin's discovery of his wife's "betrayal" and the "loss" of his children threw him into a fugue of mental anguish and raw anger. He couldn't bring himself to harm Padme, but in a violent rampage that left their home ablaze, Anakin left Naboo - his last act before leaving, was to destroy his lightsaber.

Five years have now passed since Anakin Skywalker died. Aged before his time, the notoriously bitter and surly old moisture farmer was found by traders, who buried him in the sands of his homeworld. Shortly thereafter, despite her clear vitality, Padme Amidala Skywalker suffered a deepening illness none could explain, and she soon died as well. Her resting ceremony was attended by hundreds of thousands from across the galaxy.

As the news of his parents' deaths reached him, powerful Jedi Master Luke Skywalker seemed to be greatly pained by the news and fell into a deep depression and isolation. After spending weeks researching in the Jedi Archives, one morning, Master Skywalker simply disappeared. His quarters were found empty, a jedi librarian found slain, and an ancient jedi holocron - from the era of the old Sith wars - was found stolen. Despite months of searching, the order was unable to uncover any clues to the whereabouts of Luke Skywalker.

As such... our heroes will embark on a journey to discover a lost Jedi Master, unravel the mystery of his dissapearance, and delve into a dark secret... which the galaxy has kept well hidden. For there is still a prophecy to fullfill... and balance must be brought to the force.
