who is the Apprentice?

Many of us are wondering about the Apprentice's identity, and why LA chose to keep his name a secret. the thing that made me inquire about his origin, since he is too powerful, and his true name is yet to be revieled...

so, do you think that perhaps he is the son of an already known SW character? and if so, who would it be? any suggestions?!

Qui-Gon Jinn for ex

Qui-Gon? Hmm, never thought of that... But I think this whole father/son thing is getting a little old on SW.

I know that one cheat code said his fathers clothes but like Ctrl said I think the father-son is too cliched in Star Wars to have him as the son of a popular character. But who knows, maybe he will have a last name we recognize.

Well...apparently he has a huge midi chlorian count (hate those things, but it's fact) and that's the reason Vader took him as an apprentice.
But no comes the clue. Vader isn't that 'old' in his battered stae (see the thread). So.....the apprentice must have been around when there were still Jedi.
Now the question remains: Did the Jedi find him to start the training? Or did the same happen as with Annakin; that Vader found him first and kept him hidden?

But then there's the quote from the 'Force wrecking ball' video. "Vader has been torturing this kid from a young age."
So....his father or mother is (I suppose) strong in the Force, Vader found him at a young age and trained him, and his father is sort of..familiar since he can use his dad's costume.

I can't wait for this game...o wait. I won't play it...

well, one of my friends told me that he read an "old" production diary inwhich they say that "the force ghost of Qui-Gon Jinn" appears to the Apprentice somewhere in the game to provide some guidance through the game...makes a ring?

"Haden Blackman, writer of The Force Unleashed, has said that he has a name, but that they cannot release it yet." (taken from Wookieepedia) so we'll just have to wait and see.

Sam Whitwer who plays the Secret Apprentice, said in an interview that,"He has the potential of Yoda or the Emperor", "he's a photo negative of Luke Skywalker".

That doesn't tell us much I know, but he may be part of a Strong Force Family.

Son of Dooku, Obi-Wan, Dark Women, tholme....

That would probably be best; for originality's sake (or at least for the sake of not being overly-cliche).

If he's Vader's other son, I guess there will probably be mixed reactions by the fans. It could be the coolest thing ever, but it could also seem really contrived, lame, unoriginal, and stupid. I reserve judgement, however, until I get to see and play the game for myself. I can't wait!

I could see him being related to someone famous, but.... I'm more leaning toward some random guy.

Although, if he turns out to be Vader's "other son", I think I would chuck my Star Wars DVDs into the closest Mount Doom.

Yeah, if The Secret Apprentice was Vader's other so it would contridict soooo much. I am heavily think that The Secret Apprentice is not Vader's other son.

'Tis the son of Darth Maul. How else could he be so bad ***?
Bad jokes aside, I really hope he is just a new character with no blood connections to other known characters.

I hope its a completely new character. Since Lucasarts has created new characters in the past just for video games and then they get so popular they need their own series (Kyle Katarn anyone?)

I hope it's a new character. Maybe the Secret Apprentice's just called Sam Witwer... nah. If it has a connection to another SW character, then I'm guessing the child/relative of some Jedi, not necessarily a major character.

I just thought of something. Maybe the apprentice is Luke's half brother. Vader might have impregnated someone after the whole Padme' ordeal and forgot about it

Dang! My old joke is re-used!! (Although I can't find where I used it before. I could have sworn...)

Anyways, since TFU is the 'Expanded Universe' project of the year, maybe it has some tie-ins with the upcoming Clone Wars series? Maybe some connections with the things we will see in the animated series?
It could very well be we discover the Apprentice past like the Kotor comics explained Revan's past.

I'd think it'd be make more sense if it'd tie in with the upcoming Live-Action TV Series.

Well, I don't see why can't both be involved: The Apprentice's past will be the connection with the Clone Wars (I'm such a fan of flashbacks). The Apprentice's present, and the period you're playing, will be related to the Tv series.

I can't see the SA having a role, any role in the Clone Wars. He wasn't Jedi nor Sith in the Clone Wars, nor was he a soldier in the Republic Army or CIS Army (or it would've been on some backwater planet). But, I guess everything is possible.

Do we even know how old the Secret Apprentice is? Who knows, he might not be too much older than Luke, ya know. In which case it would be very improbable that he was involved very much in the Clone Wars. Though I guess his parents may have been...

Please guys, basic math:

We have SEEN Vaders face. We KNOW the game takes place between 19 bby and 1 bby (bby being 'before battle of Yavin' )
Since Vader doesn't look old, there are still Jedi around (Maris Brood, Kotha, Shak Tii) we know it isn't that far into this time periode.
Furthermore, Luke was 19 years old in 0 bby, the time of the Episode 4 movie.

a) Apprentice looks OLDER then a 19 year old Luke
b) Game takes place BEFORE Luke is 19, in any case YEARS before the movies

Conclusion: Let's put the game in 10 bby, 10 years before Episode 4. It makes the apprentice an (to round it down) 20 year old guy, who could *at MOST* have been trained from 19 bby, the year Vader become the feared guy we know today. So, even with such a young 'guesses' age, he was 10 years old when he was found.

How can he the NOT be a padawan of the Old Republic Jedi?
Again, this 'guess' goes with the thought he's twenty in the game. For every year older, another year of Clone Wars for him to fight in.

I didn't know looks counted as math. It's not because he LOOKS older that he IS. Anyway, if you place the game in 10BBY, and he is 20 years old in 10BBY, then he must've been 11 at the time of the Great Jedi Purge. Fighting in the Clone Wars?! I don't think so. Further more, if he was a Jedi trained by a Jedi Knight, then surely his training couldn't have been so complete (him being only 11 years old when his master probably died or went into hiding) he'd only need one year training with Vader.
