Darth Vader was an example of the dark side’s victory. Anakin Solo, after his grandfather, the fabled Chosen One who went to evil and became Darth Vader, was named after him. He was the youngest of the Solo siblings, but he had a great ability with the Force. His lightsaber skill was extremely developed, but it paled in comparison to his tremendous potential with the Force.
Anakin was critical in the war against the Yuuzhan Vong. He developed several methods for combating the Vong, including a power to detect them through the Force, which was previously unknown among Jedi. He sacrificed his life in a battle with a large number of Yuuzhan Vong warriors; he projected energy from his fingertips until he became one with the Force, being enveloped by a cloak of pure light.
