Question Who is Anakin's Father??

No one knows for sure who Anakin Skywalker's father is.
So I thought, why not start a thread in which people can 'make up' Anakin's Father?

I'll start -
I think Anakin's Father is Count Dooku. Now before you start laughing, give it a thought:
In the old trilogy, Vader and Luke fight each other. In the new trilogy, Count Dooku and Anakin fight each other. Anakin has to fight his son on Palpatine's orders just as Dooku has to fight Anakin on Palpatine's orders. So there is a very good chance that Count Dooku is Anakin's father.

What about you? Remember, Anakin's 'father' can be anyone and anything you like (i.e. - A twilek ), so get creative!

Anakin's mother claimed that there was no father - maybe she went to a sperm donor.

very familiar,
of course Jesus automatically comes to mind. but there are many others, ancient mythology is littered with stories of virgin births and immaculate conceptions. Roman, Egyptian, Greek, they all have tales about heroes and warriors that were born without fathers (human anyway)

we all know GL loves his mythology, which particular one inspired him we don't know. maybe it was Perseus, the slayer of Medusa. his mother, Danae, was impregnated by a shower of gold.

I doubt it, he is WAY to old to be his dad. SHimi: 40s, 30s maybe?
spoiler:
Palpatine: 200? 1k? 100? 150? 80?

No matter what case, he's to old.

That's why Shmi didn't want anybody to know. Just like that Mary 'virgin' who doesn't want Josef to find out she cheated on him, and I guess anybody in that town could have been the father.

[Josef] Hey how that you get pregnant when we haven't even done you know what? Have you been cheating on me? I bet it's that guy from around the corner.
[Mary] Now off course not, this child has been given to me by God. (Comment: she named God, God, because she couldn't come up with a nice godly name like Zeus or Jupiter or Ares or anything like that). Don't you trust lil'ol' me?
[Josef] No, I guess that concievement by God is all right, happens all the time doesn't it?

A few moments later Mary visits the guy from araoun the corner.

[Mary] I told Josef that God was the father of our child. I think it's better you keep this story up and tell the whole town as well, Josef is out of town for a while, so you should have a meeting of all the men in this town right now. I don't really want to know anyway who is the father anyway. It could be everybody from this town, and some of the merchants have already left, you know how short their stays are.
[Guy from araound the corner] Yeah, you're right, let's have this meeting right now. The entire town would have to stick together.

I don't mean to offend anybody with this, just something I thought of. And it's just meant to be relegion with a healthy bit of sarcasm.

When I was younger(and stupider), I thought Qui-Gon was the father...
But of course, if anything, he was really the father figure.

Uhh... some male prostitute?


spoiler:
Seriously, though, I had heard about the theory of Ani's father being Palpatine and that he purposely ordered the Trade Federation to spare Naboo royal ship, forcing them to land on Mos Espa. A little too far-fetched but I like my first theory.

One more thing that I forgot to add about Count Dooku being Anakin's father:

Count Dooku cuts off Anakin's hand, just as Anakin cuts off Luke's hand.

If we get a cheesy line in Ep. III where Count Dooku says "Anakin, I'm your father", I swear, I'll leave the theater

Maybe... there was some fellow who had an extremely high midi-count, but wasn't a Jedi, for some reason. He might have screwed Shmi, or maybe she wanted the whole sperm-into-womb-without-sex thing and got this Force-guy's sperm. Sure, a dirty theory and a dirty post, but seeing such high midi-count, Qui-Gon could have easily mistaken that he was conceived by the Force itself.

Luke isnt stronger than him. (summary at the botom of post,for those who dont want to read all this other crap)



ANAKINS FATHER WAS

The Force.



Anakin was the force incarnate.He had the power to bring balance to the force.If Anakin chooses to be evil,the galaxy falls into chaos.

Throughout his childhood he was torn between good and evil.He had the horrible pain of leaving his mother as a slave,his father figure died soon after,he was in love with a woman who he could never be with,and when he returned to his home on tatooine he had to watch his mother die.

So he turned to the darkside,and the galaxy was ruled by evil.

But he did bring balance to the force.

But then Luke comes along,and anakin is once again torn between good and evil.

Vader desperately wants to turn Luke to the darkside,so he can once again bring balance to the force.

When Vader realises he cant make Luke join him, he decides to freeze Luke in frozen carbonite. (Han was just put in the carbonite as a test to make sure it wouldnt kill luke.)

Luke manages to avoid falling in the carbonite,and fights with vader.In this fight Vader is obviously much more powerful.He mostly just blocks Lukes attacks,until luke makes a fatal error.Even then Vader could not kill his son,so he cut off lukes hand,and lets luke run away.

Vader is now in need of guidance,so he goes back to his mentor emperor palpatine.Palpatine tells Vader how he plans to have Luke turn to the darkside.(im not sure if he told vader that he planed for luke to kill him.)


So,luke and vader fight ect. ect. ect. Vader is definately winning at the begining of the fight,but Luke embraces the darkside,and lets his hatred of vader and palpantine consume him.Vader is obvioulsy suprised by this attack,and is defeated by luke.When luke looks down on his dieing father he realises how much the two of them are alike.So luke refuses the darkside,and the emperor shoots him with lightning.Vader hears Luke calling for his help,and realises the error of his ways.Vader has now once again become one with the force.He gets up grabs palpatine.Palpatine shoots lightning at vader,but it doesnt realy hurt him,so he hurls palpatine down some hole.

At this point he knows he has completed his purpose in life,so he doesnt let Luke take him to safety.


(Yoda and Obi Wan also let themselves die in this fashion after they become one with the force.)



SUMMARY



So,Anakin does bring balance to the force,he is stronger than Luke,and he is the hero of starwars.

And he was Conceived by the force

1.Luke never actually touches the carbonite.He uses the force to levitate out,so rather than explaining that i just said he avoided falling in. (he doesnt jump out,because he never touched the bottom.)

2.I do not remember Yoda ever saying that (he might have,i just dont remember. ) ,but i did see an interview with George Lucas were he mentioned Darth Vader being stronger than Luke.

No he uses the force to enhance his jump when he jumps out of the chamber and grabs a cable above the circular pit.

He clearly hits the bottom in every EP5 version I have seen...

Luke clearly falls into the pit and hits the bottom, he stands up and quickly jumps straight up, all while Vader turns toward the control panel, says "all to easy", and uses telekinesis to operate the controls... Vader turns back looks down and says "maby you are not as strong as the emperor thought", Luke fumbles with the cables he is clinging to and Vader looks up and says "impressive, most impressive"... and the duel continues.
