The Entire Emperor Palpatine Story Explained

  • The Emperor has long loomed over the Star Wars saga. Sometimes, he’s manipulated events from the shadows. Other times, he’s stepped onto the screen and shocked audiences with his crazy powers. From his days as an apprentice to his appearance in Episode IX, here’s the entire Emperor Palpatine story.
    Sheev Palpatine, the man who would become a Sith Lord and the galactic emperor, was born on the planet Naboo. According to the novel Darth Plagueis, young Palpatine first discovered the temptation of the Dark Side of the Force while collecting Sith artifacts. As a young man he met Plagueis. The encounter led Palpatine to kill his entire family and dedicate himself to becoming Darth Plagueis' Sith apprentice. As a result, Plagueis gave him the name of Darth Sidious.
    Like Plagueis before him, Sidious carefully maintained his non-Sith identity as Sheev Palpatine, and he became active in politics on Naboo. He rose in rank to become a senator after secretly arranging the assassination of his predecessor, representing Naboo in the Galactic Senate. He remained in that position for years, methodically working to accumulate more power, gaining strength both politically and in the Dark Side.

    Most sith had NO patience for anything and anyone. Many dark side users, including the sith are their own worst enemies. The dark side can turn you into a deadly animal.. a killing machine who often will charge into battle to kill anyone and everyone. (Like the jedi, but a lot less restraint!) But many sith get themselves killed, mailed and or injured too often. There aren't very many "good looking" sith. They lose a lot of body parts. look at annakin. By the time he becomes vader he lost all of his origional limbs! (mostly)

    Since Palpatine is moving his soul with every other sith into new bodies, does this mean palpatine was just a host as well for all the sith souls? Maybe he’s actually Vitiate? I know he’s not cannon but maybe it’s a version of him

    Here's a thought. Vader died so soon because Palpatine sucked a bit of his life force out of him, hid in the wreckage of the Death Star, and his followers found him. Boom, done.

    Maul wasn't Palpatines apprentice. He was trained by a droid and only say Palpatine on occasion. He was used like a tool for certain jobs. He was never taught the true nature of the dark side or the teachings of the sith. Still a great character though

    We always thought SW was about Anakin’s rise and fall... however, with all the pieces now in place, it’s always been about Palpatine! Wow! Can’t blame the sequels, either. The prequels follow Palpatine’s story more than, if not just as much as Anakin’s.
