In Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope and Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back, Vader is depicted as the cunning, brutal enforcer of the Galactic Empire’s rule across the galaxy.
Vader serves as the apprentice of Emperor Palpatine, using the dark side of the Force to mercilessly pursue the Jedi and the Rebel Alliance to the ends of the galaxy. The prequels recounts the heroic rise and tragic fall of Vader’s former self, Anakin Skywalker.
Darth Vader is the primary antagonist: a dark, ruthless figure, out to capture, torture, or kill the heroes to prevent them from thwarting the Empire.
