Summary
Galen Marek, codenamed Starkiller, was a Force-sensitive Human male taken on by the Sith Lord Darth Vader

as his secret apprentice and personal assassin during the reign of the Galactic Empire. The son of two Jedi Knights, Kento and Mallie Marek, Galen was born on the Wookiee

in the aftermath of the Clone Wars. Following his mother's death, Kashyyyk was invaded by the Imperial Military. As a target of the Great Jedi Purge, Kento was confronted and slain in a lightsaber duel by the Dark Lord of the Sith, who discovered the fugitive Jedi's son in the process. Gauging the orphan's raw strength in the Force, Vader abducted and ultimately raised Galen to embrace the dark side of the Force. In time Marek forgot his past and even his birth name, having been taken from his home as a child by the Dark Lord. Though trained in the Sith arts, the Rule of Two dictated that there could only be two Sith Lords at a time, and therefore Marek could not consider himself a true Sith while his master was still apprenticed to Darth Sidious

. As such, Vader kept his apprentice's existence a secret, bestowing to him the call sign "Starkiller." For years, Starkiller aspired to truly become one with the Order of the Sith Lords, believing it was his destiny to help Vader overthrow Sidious and usurp his throne as Galactic Emperor. As his training neared completion, Starkiller was ordered by Vader to kill the few remaining members of the Jedi Order

. The apprentice completed his missions, prevailing against his more experienced targets, only to be betrayed by his master after the Emperor confronted them. Stunned by this turn of events, Starkiller nevertheless remained loyal to Vader, and began fomenting a rebellion against the Galactic Empire as part of his master's plan to depose Sidious. The mission was another ruse, however. After the apprentice convinced Bail Prestor Organa
