Emperor Palpatine's cane was, as its name suggested, a walking aid used by Sheev Palpatine during his reign as ruler of the Galactic Empire,[2] despite the fact that he was perfectly capable of walking without it.[1] Twisted and gnarled, the cane had a glossy black finish.[2] The Emperor brought it with him when he visited the second Death Star[1] in 4 ABY[3] in order to lure the Alliance Fleet into a trap. Shortly thereafter, however, the Death Star was destroyed during the Battle of Endor, along with everyone and everything it contained.[1]

Behind the scenesEdit

The Emperor's cane first appeared in Star Wars: Episode VI Return of the Jedi.[1] According to the reference book The Star Wars Archives, the original prop measured 20×94×3 centimeters.[4]
