Character/Costume Description

Galen Marek, codenamed Starkiller,
was a male Human apprentice of the
Sith Lord Darth Vader. A powerful
Force-wielder who lived during the
era of the Galactic Empire, Marek
originated from the Wookiee home
planet of Kashyyyk as the sole
offspring of two Jedi Knights—Mallie
and Kento Marek—who deserted the
Jedi Order during the Clone Wars.
Following the death of his mother,
the young Marek's father was killed
in battle by Darth Vader. Though
only a child, Marek possessed an
exceptionally strong connection to
the Force that the Dark Lord of the
Sith sought to exploit.
Thus, Darth Vader abducted Marek
in order to train the orphan in the
ways of the Sith Order. Although the
Sith were limited to only two
members at any given time, Vader
nonetheless trained Marek as a
secret apprentice during his own
apprenticeship to Darth Sidious, the
Sith Lord who ruled the galaxy as
Emperor Palpatine. The physical and
psychological trauma of Vader's
unforgiving training regimen
resulted in Marek's immersion within
the dark side of the Force as his
Master intended. With his childhood
memories suppressed and his
original identity forgotten, Marek
only knew himself as the Dark
Lord's apprentice; a Sith assassin
who operated under the codename
"Starkiller" and a living weapon to
be deployed against the enemies of
Darth Vader.In addition to the
assassination of numerous targets
that included Vader's many rivals,
the apprentice trained for years in
preparation for the day when he
would be ready to aid his Master in
a confrontation with Darth Sidious.
This singular goal became
Starkiller's obsession as he longed
to become a true Sith Lord. The
pinnacle of Starkiller's training saw
him deployed against Jedi targets
for the first time in his life in 3 BBY
and culminated in victories against
the fugitive Jedi Masters Rahm Kota,
Kazdan Paratus and Shaak Ti. With
the death of Ti, one of the few
members of the Jedi High Council
who survived Order 66, Darth Vader
declared that the time had come to
execute their plan to overthrow the
Emperor. Elated at the prospect of
finally fulfilling his sole purpose in
life, Starkiller rendezvoused with
Vader on the Executor only to be
betrayed and severely wounded by
his Master who claimed that
Sidious's spies had discovered the
existence of the secret apprentice.
Pressured by the Emperor, Vader
demonstrated his loyalty by
seemingly killing Starkiller. In truth,
the betrayal was a ruse that allowed
Vader to save his apprentice's life.

Upon Starkiller's full recovery in 2
BBY, Vader revealed his
contingency plan: the creation of a
full-scale rebellion against the
Galactic Empire. The apprentice was
instructed by his Master to assemble
an army of rebels and dissidents in
order to distract the Emperor's
attention with a civil war, hence
allowing them both another
opportunity to assassinate Sidious.
Though bitter and resentful toward
Vader, Starkiller complied and
searched several parts of the galaxy
for influential contacts that would be
crucial to the formation of an
insurrection on a galactic-scale.
Through Starkiller's efforts, three
disillusioned members of the
Imperial Senate—Bail Organa, Garm
Bel Iblis and Mon Mothma—
convened on the planet Corellia
where they agreed to join their
resources together in opposition to
the Emperor's rule. However, the
mission proved to be another
deception on Vader's part; the Dark
Lord betrayed Starkiller once more
and captured the senators.
Outraged by the discovery that his
Master was unwilling to challenge
Darth Sidious with Starkiller's aid,
the former apprentice journeyed to
the incomplete Death Star and
intended to rescue his new-found
allies from execution. Abandoning
the persona of Starkiller, he re-
embraced his Jedi heritage as Galen
Marek through the partial recovery
of his suppressed memories.
