Revan speculationEdit

I didn't know that there were that many people in the skywalker family. Unsigned comment by Jagkid007 (talk • contribs).

This- "It is speculated by some that Darth Revan may be a very distant ancestor of the Skywalker family." is complete and utter fan-wanking and should be removed. QuentinGeorge 06:24, 22 Jun 2005 (UTC)

CGI twinsEdit

Why the article CGI says that the Skywalker twins appear in Episode III as CGI??? Please see its talk page MoffRebus 23:28, 25 Dec 2005 (UTC)

Cade's ancestryEdit

Just a note about Cade Skywalker: Randy Stradley mentions on the Dark Horse boards that nothing in the Legacy preview specifically says that Cade is descended from Ben, just Luke and Anakin. It's probably a good assumption, but it's not fact yet, I imagine because saying it for certain would fix Ben's fate. - Lord Hydronium 00:44, 2 February 2006 (UTC)

  • Well, I don't really go to blogs or spoiler threads, but most of the stuff I've heard is that they don't plan on Luke and Mara having anymore least not in the forseeable future. -- SFH 00:48, 2 February 2006 (UTC)

Why did someone revert the page. There was nothing wrong with it before

Could Kol be Ben's son? At 40 ABY, Ben is only 13 and it has been shown that human's live quite a while in the GFFA. Stinkywookie 18:25, 7 June 2006 (UTC)

Judging from how long the Dark Woman lived, he just might be. - Bub

It was NEVER stated that Kol was a descendent of Ben, only Luke. Also, it was stated by a prophetess that Luke would have children (plural).
  • No but lets face it, with Luke currently 60 years old, his wife has just died, .... he's not going to have any more kids.... wouldn't be the first time a prophecy was wrong (I point you to Anakin Solo, Tahiri and Ikrit) ... add this to Kol's red hair which was clearly a point towards Ben's red hair. .... Let's be reasonable here, its not hard to realise he's Ben's descendant... its really the only way he can be a descendant of Luke. Personally I don't think he'll be Ben's grandson not son. Jedi-Sith 02:15, 19 June 2008 (UTC)
Lotf ad from KOTOR campaign guide

This image makes it clear that Ben Skywalker is Cade's grandfather and Kol and Nat's father. Luke calls Cade his Great-grandson. That makes Kol and Nat his grandchildren. Darth Kieduss the Wise 00:53, September 20, 2010 (UTC)

Leia's childrenEdit

Should Han and Leia's Children really be discussed here? I think this page should just discuss Luke's descendants ::just as it only shows Luke's descendants:: All of Han's descendants should be discussed in House of Solo. I'll wait for a second.-- 19:46, 1 July 2006 (UTC)

  • Yes they should. Don't just look at the family descent only from the father's side only. Cause even though the Solo kids are Han's children, one must not forget their descent from Anakin Skywalker through their mother Leia. Plus, it is from this family where they got their Force-sensitivity from, not from the Solo side. - Divinity 06:51, 2 December 2006 (UTC)

aden trackus/skywalker Edit

  • why is aden trackus not on the family tree. check on and go to history of sith and jedi there it says "172,700 YA Aden Trackus goes into hiding, changes last name to Skywalker".
  • You should really read this article: Supershadow... Tellur 10:23, 24 August 2006 (UTC)

Five generations? Edit

Why so? - Sikon 18:29, 10 September 2006 (UTC)

  • Some promotional text said something like "five generations after the rebellions defeat of the Death Star". This is obviously meant to say "a hundred years", with the old standard of one generation per twenty years. Not anything about the Skywalker lineage. Charlii 19:07, 10 September 2006 (UTC)
It's wrong regardless. If the promotional text says that it is "five generations since Yavin" and this *is* taken to literally mean that there have been five generations of Skywalkers since Yavin then it should be including Kol and Cade. Legacy begins when Kol and Cade are *alive* after all.
If it's "Since Yavin/destruction of the first Death Star", then Luke can't be the first of these generations, he is the generation of Yavin, and the promotional text talks of the generations since Yavin. Therefore it should work like this:
  1. Ben Skywalker
  2. Whoever Skywalker
  3. Unknown Skywalker
  4. Kol Skywalker
  5. Cade Skywalker

I think it would be much simpler just to put "generations", rather than giving specifics at this time. (Ulicus 23:50, 13 September 2006 (UTC))

  • Ok, I'm removing the "Five generations" bit from the article, since it implies that there are *five different Skywalkers* between Ben and Kol. This *cannot* be the case unless they're having kids in their early-mid teens. As Charlii already touched upon, the promotional material isn't meant to be implying five generations of Skywalkers, it is supposed to be implying 25x5 = around 125 years, which is near as dammit to 130 ABY, which is when Legacy kicks off. Just like the with the Republic, where "1000 generations" = "25,000" years. (Ulicus 12:14, 14 September 2006 (UTC))
    • Haha, whaddya know! Someone already did it whilst I was typing. Good job. Still, I'm going to make it "Unknown Generation/s", since it's just as possible that there's only one Skywalker separating Ben and Kol. (I think it's pretty unlikely that Kol is Ben's son...) (Ulicus 12:19, 14 September 2006 (UTC))

This it could be the true father of Anakin Skywalker… your name is Lodon Skywalker Edit

Acordin´my investigations of the Internet, the Anakin´s father is Lodon Skywalker, hes lived 27,000,000 ABY, this is ture of false? User_talk:Starkiller1996

Conceived via the force?Edit

Is it so that Anakin is created by the force? for i don't know. But if it is so then improve it, so i know if it's right.

Origin of Anakin Skywalker In Joseph Campbell's book The Hero with a Thousand Faces there is an entire chapter on virgin birth as an aspect of heroic mythology. Campbell considered Star Wars creator George Lucas "one of his best students" and Lucas himself has often acknowledged Campbell's importance as one of many inspirations for Star Wars. In the book, the virgin birth is a means of separating the heroic figure from the rest of humanity, marking them as special and isolated from the moment of conception.

As revealed in Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace, Anakin Skywalker has no biological father. Qui-Gon Jinn later theorizes that Anakin was conceived by the midi-chlorians themselves, in accord with the will of the Force. It is suggested in Vader: The Ultimate Guide that Plagueis created Anakin Skywalker in his mother's womb. According to Star Wars: The New Essential Chronology, Darth Plagueis indeed knew how to create life, and may have sought to create a replacement for his apprentice, Darth Sidious.

In the June 2, 2005 issue of Rolling Stone, Lucas stated that both Plagueis' and Sidious' possible role in Anakin's conception is intentionally left ambiguous.

well based on what shmi said this would technically make Anakin Jesus 23:02, 25 August 2007 (UTC)

Owen/Beru Lars Edit

In the Star Wars Trilogy (#2), it goes into the details of how Anakin is related to Owen and Beru, through his mother marrying Owens dad, thus making them step-brothers. This would surely show Luke as their nephew.

However...if you read Star Wars: Return of the Jedi (I know there are at least two different books that may say very different things, with the same title (the original trilogy has been rewritten horribly to make more connections between the original trilogy and the prequel, which was not how it should have been done), only pay attention to the original book) says that Owen is Obi-Wans brother in his long speech at the end, the scene after Yoda has died and Luke is about to head back to the Rebellion before the final battle. This would better ensure Luke being hidden from Palpatine, Vader and the Empire.

My question falls into -- why would Lucas make such a huge error with that supposedly "small" issue..? It throws off the family lines, and does not provide continuity between the original trilogy and the preguel trilogy.

Re-writing, or having someone else re-write the original trilogy only makes it worse. I started reading the re-write and put it down after a chapter. It was written horribly and was also written with something else in mind...

  • Sign your comment. I know, I forget too.
    • Well, First of all, if Owen was Obi's brother, then he wouldn't really be Luke's Uncle. Of course, many people have family friends who they call "Uncle" who aren't really, but to use the original ROTJ stuff would just confuse people that don't bother reading books base on movies.

Second, If you think that it makes more sense that Owen is Obi's brother, and that hiding him with him on an out of the way planet makes more sense than hiding Luke (without changing his last name) on the very planet that Vader grew up on, with Vader's Own step brother,....well your probably right. The only logical explanation is that Obi figured that since Vader hated Tatooine so much, that is the one planet in the Galaxy he would be least likely to go. I think that makes since, but why he didn't change his Last name, and put him with people unrelated to Vader, I know not.

As far as your problems with rewrites....This is the star wars universe, and retcons are as plentiful, and as necessary as changes of underwear. IthinkIwannaLeia 04:57, 17 December 2007 (UTC)


I added some stuff to the end of the article about what makes this family unique. I will source it soon but I have to go now. I am not very good at sourcing, so if someone wants to do some of it before I get to it, have at it. IthinkIwannaLeia 21:13, 14 December 2007 (UTC)

  • The sourcing is done to the best of my ability. IthinkIwannaLeia 04:46, 17 December 2007 (UTC)

Nat Skywalker Edit

Since we know Kol's brother Nat is still alive, doesn't that mean Cade is not the last surviving Skywalker? Darth Anakin 20:28, 21 May 2008 (UTC)

Gallery Edit

Is the image gallery for the Skywalkers really necessary?--Jedi Kasra 01:16, 6 June 2008 (UTC)

  • Possibly not, though I saw it in other family pages so thought it was a nice idea to put in this oneJedi-Sith 14:17, 6 June 2008 (UTC)

Morrigan / Nyna Edit

I think we should have the name Morrigan put on this page, since that is the name the family knows her by, not Nyna. And before people go and argue that its not her real name, thats actually incorrect, we don't know which is her real name at this point in time. Jedi-Sith 05:25, 13 June 2008 (UTC)

  • If no one has any objection to this, I'm going to change it back to Corde Jedi-Sith 05:55, 15 June 2008 (UTC)
    • Didn't Nyna/Morrigan have kids with some other guy? Should we put a thing that links her to the "Yage Family" or something? Since technically, her other kid is like, the step-brother/sister. --The Wolfe22 01:53, 21 July 2008 (UTC)
    • The step-bro/sis of CADE, I mean.
      • Yes, I think it should be there in some way. I made a temporary solution for evaluation. Charlii 10:38, 21 July 2008 (UTC)
  • The latest issue of Legacy shows that Kol was aware of Nyna/Morrigan's dual identity. — Red XIV (talk) 19:34, December 27, 2009 (UTC)

Cade is Luke's great-grandson? Edit

According to this image:

Lotf ad from KOTOR campaign guide

Cade Skywalker is Luke's great grandson. However, the image is from a non-canon comic. Could some elements of the commercial be considered canon even though the plot isn't? Nanook 23:17, 23 August 2008 (UTC)c

  • No, if it's non-canon, then it's non-canon. And, correct me if I'm wrong, couldn't "great-grandson" be used as a short for a more distant relation? Charlii 11:35, 24 August 2008 (UTC)
    • The ad itself is non-canon; however, the info in it isn't necessarily non-canon. And I've never seen "great-grandson" referring to anyone other than a great-grandson. Grand Moff Tranner Imperial Department of Military Research (Comlink) 12:55, 24 August 2008 (UTC)
      • But ads do not necessarily pass through Leland for continuity-checking, so how do we know if this sentence did? Unless we get confirmation from him that it did so, we cannot count it as canon. Charlii 13:07, 24 August 2008 (UTC)
        • Given that that sentence was specifically changed for the Kotor Campaign Guide, and that it was made by Dark Horse, I think it's safe to presume that Cade is canonically Luke's grandson. But, until we get confirmation from John/Jan/Leland, it should stay in the BtS sections of the relevant articles. -- AdmirableAckbar (Talk) 13:59, 24 August 2008 (UTC)
          • If anything, Cade is Luke's great-great-grandson. Ben is most likely the grandfather of Nat and Kol, if you look at the time between Ben's birth and Kol's death. Kol was probably between 35 and 40 when he died. So he was born around 90 and 95 ABY, so if Ben were his father, he'd have been between 64 and 69 years old when he had Kol, which is unlikely. There is most likely 1 generation between Ben and Kol/Nat, making Cade, most likely, Luke's great-great-grandson. ~~ Arr, ye basterd! - Tardir 02:56, March 23, 2014 (UTC)

Malinza Thanas adopted by Luke Skywalker? Edit

I have a request. I think we have to take Malinza into the Skywalker family because in the Captison family tree it is shown that Malinza was adopted by Luke Skywalker.Sabe Ankaya 16:34, 19 November 2008 (UTC)

  • If I recall correctly the mention of Malinza during the NJO books said that Luke and Mara sponsored her education. I'm not certain that would be considered the same as adoption. Vryce 23:15, 20 November 2008 (UTC)

Box removed Edit

Can somebody tell me please why somebody removed the box???Sabe Ankaya 14:20, 12 December 2008 (UTC)

  • Infoboxes are tricky when you have family trees or similar formated things, since they might overlap and cover each other in low resolutions. I suspect that was the reason. Charlii 15:02, 12 December 2008 (UTC)

Knight/Padawan Edit

Regarding the line "As a Jedi Knight, Anakin married Padmé Amidala in 22 BBY"; wasn't Anakin still a padawan when he married Padme at the end of Attack Of The Clones? --Secretss 15:49, 15 December 2008 (UTC)

Well, I've changed it. I don't think there's going to be any evidence to prove me wrong anyway. Anakin didn't become a Knight until the Star Wars Clone Wars 2D 2003 TV animated series, which is after AOTC, which is when he married Padme.--Secretss 16:52, 18 December 2008 (UTC)
  • i think there's a little bit of conflict with this issue. I've done a bit of reading and I remember that the Battle of Christopsis which takes place during the Star Wars: The Clone Wars film (NOT the micro series) is set 4 months after Attack of the Clones which means that Anakin and Padmé have been married only 4 months when this happens and according to this film, Anakin's a Jedi Knight but from the reading I've done on the Micro series seeing as I've never seen it, Anakin became a knight much later but bare in mind that the micro series served as a filler between the two-three years in which Revenge of the Sith was being made. --Chawk1993 (talk) 04:42, June 2, 2013 (UTC)

Shmi Founder?Edit

  • The infobox states that Shmi was the founder of the Skywalker family. While she's the first known member, that doesn't really count as being the founder does it? NighthawkLeader 02:46, 28 March 2009 (UTC)
  • I don't think it does. What about he father? He was a Skywalker. Apotheoses Jedi 24:21, 29 April 2009 (UTC-6)
*Slaps you.* Remember, in Episode I, Shmi said "There is no father" to Qui-Gon.—B-Boba Fett! He'll kill us all! Jaster's Feather 22:30, November 15, 2009 (UTC)
  • facepalm* Anakin didn't have a father. Shmi did have one. — Red XIV (talk) 19:31, December 27, 2009 (UTC)

Solo children Edit

Shouldn't Jaina, Jacen, Anakin, and Allana be added to the page instead (see house of Solo) because even though they don't have the last name they are bilogically skywalkers. And they should also be added to the notable memebers part in the info box because they were hunted for there strong connection to the force when they were young for being Anakin's grandchildren.

Technically speaking, Jaina, Jacen and Anakin are the grandchildren of Anakin and so yes they should be on this family tree. Remember, Leia is Anakin's daughter so that would make her half Skywalker as she was born Leia Amidala Skywalker but became Leia Organa when Bail and his wife Breha adopted her plus it was to protect her from the Empire if Vader and Palpatine ever discoverd that the twins survived birth after their mother died. --Chawk1993 (talk) 04:28, June 2, 2013 (UTC)

The dark side Edit

The article says "every member of the Skywalker family fell to or struggled with the dark side". That doesn't seem accurate to me. While "many" or even "most" would be reasonable, I don't recall any indication, for example, that Kol ever had a brush with the dark side. — Red XIV (talk) 19:37, December 27, 2009 (UTC)

  • I don't remember Leia or Anakin Solo having brushes with the darkside either.jedi_master425

Leia's nameEdit

Why Leia is named Amidala Skywalker in this article? She never bears even one of these names and if you meant this are the names of her parents, you might have give Luke this two names too. 12:32, February 9, 2010 (UTC)

  • She was actually born with that name, but someone (the Jedi or Organa) changed her name in order to keep her safe from Vader. Xd 14:09, February 9, 2010 (UTC)
If you think so, you should add this information by Luke Amidala Skywalker too... 18:51, February 23, 2010 (UTC)
  • It's not just Xd thinking it, the "Leia Amidala Skywalker" name comes from the ROTS visual dictionary. Though the book doesn't really give an of explanation to the name, it is likely that Amidala is meant to be Leia's middle name and not a surname—hence Luke not receiving it. This has been discussed on Leia's talk page, should you want more information on the matter. Tinwe 19:02, February 23, 2010 (UTC)
  • I think the way it worked was that Luke was just given 'Skywalker' because he would be the one to raise the next generation of Skywalkers meaning his only child Ben and then his decendants. Leia on the other hand, I have reason to believe that she was given her mother's formal name and her father's name because I think Padme knew that Leia would one day follow in her footsteps and become a politician and it would give people the connection that Leia was Padme (and Anakin's) daughter but was never given the chance to use her mother and father's surnames because she was given and went by her adoptive family's name.--Chawk1993 (talk) 04:34, June 2, 2013 (UTC)

1.1 Cleanup Edit

Can we move the Ad away from the family tree? It's covering part of the article.

Darth Caedus Edit

It says under The Dark Side that every family member of the Skywalkers returned to the light side, with the exception of Darth Caedus, but didn't he leave all of his hate behind? When Ben and Luke talked to him in Abyss he claimed so. Even Jaina said that he was Jacen when she killed him.Unsigned comment by (talk • contribs).

  • He still died under the title of Caedus, without repenting or redeeming himself. Whether he was fully "Jacen" at the end is fairly irrelevant. And he is still unrepentant-Caedus when Luke and Ben come across him: the persona is still the same, even if his hatred is no longer present. I think whoever wrote the article is perfectly accurate. -Zekk_Skywalk 04:45, January 4, 2011 (UTC)

Ben/Vestara Edit

i think Ben had kids with Vestara.

i think Ben married Vestara and had kids because we don't know what happened to them.

I do, too. I think that Ben Skywalker and Vestara Khai are the parents of Kol and Nat Skywalker Lord Kroger 01:38, September 6, 2011 (UTC)


The article seems to imply that Jacen died a Sith Lord. The was i understood the story, from the book Invincible that he was redeemed just before he died. Did i read the story wrong or should this be added to the article? --JediMasterKing'Jedi symbol (Personal Temple Comm Channel) 16:19, October 14, 2011 (UTC)

I hate to burst your bobble, but as of Fate of the Jedi: Apocalypse its not going to happen. --AH2000 5:37 March 26, 2012

How Powerful the Skywalker Family in The Force Edit

I think it should explain how powerful The Skywalker Family are in The Force. --Cococrash11 01:35, October 18, 2011 (UTC)

Confirming Family Member Edit

It says that Kol and Nat Skywalker's parents were Rahn and Eva Skywalker but I can't find any info on them

Also I would like to ask anyone that might know out there wether Jana and Jagged ever actualy married and is the Fel Dynasty in Legacy a part of that?

Family Dinner Pic Edit

The Date on the picture of the family eating dinner says 40 BBY. Luke Leia and Han weren't even alive at that time. It should be changed to 40 ABY Unsigned comment by (talk • contribs).

  • thanks for pointing that out, I've fixed it. <-Omicron(Leave a message at the BEEP!) 18:44, October 15, 2012 (UTC)
  • It also needs to be fixed on the House of Solo page too.
  • I'm going to add another question to this guys question instead of starting a new topic since its about the photo. Is Ben sitting between Jaina and Zekk or between his parents? Unsigned comment by (talk • contribs).
    • I'm pretty sure that's him between his parents. He's got the Luke moptop and the lanky teenager look, while the guy between Zekk and Jaina has the right hair for Jacen. Menkooroo (talk) 05:10, January 16, 2013 (UTC)


The part that says Caedus was redeemed should be removed or edited according to the discussion over on Caedus talk page about his name. The general consensus seems to be that there is no proof he was actually returned to the light.Unsigned comment by (talk • contribs).

Canon statusEdit

Yes "technically" I guess the words "Skywalker" and "family" were never used together, however the term "family has been used. Why isn't that good enough? Simpsonsfan1992 (talk) 21:00, December 21, 2015 (UTC)
