Rebel Alliance Wikia

"I am a Jedi, like my father before me."

-Luke Skywalker, to Emperor Palpatine

Luke Skywalker was a Jedi Knight who fought for the Alliance to Restore the Republic during the Galactic Civil War. Originally a farmer on the planet Tatooine, Luke would join the rebellion after aiding Jedi Master Obi-Wan Kenobi escape Imperial forces on Tatooine alongside Han Solo, Chewbacca, C-3PO, and R2-D2 and leave the planet. Luke would then later rescue Princess Leia Organa and become an hero of the rebellion after destroying the Death Star during the Battle of Yavin. Luke would continue to fight for the Rebellion up until the Battle of Endor, in which he redeemed his secret father, Darth Vader, and killed the Imperial Emperor, Palpatine. Years later, Luke would create his own Jedi Order, but this order would eventually be destroyed by an rogue student, Kylo Ren.
