Sorry, but technically they were Sith, not Jedi.
I know, Sith originally started from a "Dark Jedi", but I think after a few thousand years they can be considered separate "Faiths", especially since they have completely opposing views on the "Force". :icon_lol:
BTW, Palpatine was never a Jedi at any time in his life.
He had always been trained as a Sith, by his master Darth Plagueis.
Thus his true title/name is actually "Darth Sidious", and of course he became a master after he off'd his master.
Vader was a just convert. LOL.
More useless information than you wanted to know...
So I defend my original statement. :icon_lol:
(All done in fun)
From your link, Dain. Kinda like saying there's a difference between catholics and Baptists- one are not Christians ? Darth Plagueis taught Darth Sidious (Palpatine) who taught Vader, so I maintain Palpatine was indeed a dark jedi (sith).Quote:
The current incarnation of the Sith is the result of a rogue Jedi dissident from the order. Two thousand years ago, this Jedi had come to the understanding that the true power of the Force lay not through contemplation and passivity.
Sidious was apprentice to Darth Plagueis, a wise Sith Lord whose knowledge of arcane and unnatural arts was reputed to extend to manipulating the very essence of life. By Sith tradition, Sidious killed Plagueis in his ascent to Master from apprentice. This left an opening for the fearsome Darth Maul to become Sidious' Sith apprentice
Both would go to the bar, get tanked, then go outside and get at it!
The Sith? Nah. They'd be in Mordor trying to sell Sauron on this nifty space station idea they have...
OK, here's the little discussed back story about Anakin Skywalker's life. The one alluded to but far as I know never has been confirmed.
Ready for it? ....
Darth Plageius "the Wise" knew how to create life from midichlorians.
Remember the scene from Phantom Menace where Schmee Skywalker is talking with Qui Gon Ginn about Anakin's father? Qui Gon was trying to size up the boy's ancestery to try to appreciate his obvious gift with the force. Then Schmee laid the big one on him ... she just got pregnant "that's all," and "couldn't explain it." Then the little Sith score played softly and briefly in the background as Qui Gon sensed she wasn't lying or hiding anything. He was very puzzled. .....
Fast forward to Revenge of the Sith ....
Anakin and Palpatine are both speaking in the theater when Palpatine speaks about lore which not even the Jedi discuss with their padawans. Of course, Palpatine was Plageuis' apprentice and "learned everything he knew," including how to create life. Well, of course, the Sith were deceptive, but not liars. Plageius really did create life from mitichlorians, and proof of that ability was Anakin Skywalker himself!
The reason he was higher than any Jedi in history in midichlorian count was because Plageius used the midichlorians to sire him with some slave girl named Schmee Skywalker. There is simply no other plausible reason for Lucas to have allowed the Sith score to play just after Schmee made that powerful statement. Lucas does nothing without considerable thought.
So, in a very real sense, when Dart Vader, in his final act to recover his virtue and return to the light side of the force by killing Darth Sidious, in fact without knowing it, Anakin killed the man who killed his father! He did so to save his son! And his son, Luke Skywalker, had no idea who his grandfather was!
Never underestimate the power of the Dark Side...
Want proof? Look at the leaders of this world's nations and at the captains of industry.
*now where did I put my lightsabre?*
Take care y'all!
Are we famous or what. Everybody visits us.
There you go boys and girls, we have heard it from the man himself.
I dunno why i keep having this idea of a late night show with Darth Vader...
Might be hard to get Darth Vader, being dead and all, a long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away. Maybe you could get Chad Vader...
