When Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker are transported to the mysterious realm of Mortis Obi-Wan experiences a vision of Qui-Gon. Qui-Gon tells him that there are three on the planet who believe Anakin to be the Chosen One, and that with Anakin's power, this is a very dangerous place for him to be.
FALL OF THE REPUBLIC
As a wise and well-respected Jedi Master, Qui-Gon Jinn would surely have been named to the Jedi Council if only he hadn’t routinely gone against its wishes. Qui-Gon’s refusal to abide by the Council’s decisions was often seen as defiance, but to him matters were simpler: His highest loyalty was to the will of the Force, and he had spent years learning to hear its commands. Qui-Gon sensed the living Force at work when his diplomatic mission to Naboo failed and he was forced to accompany Padmé Amidala to the Hutt-controlled world of Tatooine. There, he discovered Anakin Skywalker, a boy with enormous strength in the Force. Qui-Gon believed Anakin was the Chosen One, prophesied to bring balance to the Force, and that their meeting was no accident. He brought Anakin to the Jedi Council on Coruscant, and was angered when his fellow Masters refused to train the boy, but saw their lack of vision as only a temporary setback. The Sith apprentice Darth Maul struck Qui-Gon down during the battle for Naboo, but the mortally wounded Jedi lived long enough to ask his Padawan, Obi-Wan Kenobi, to promise to train Anakin. He passed into the Force convinced the Chosen One had been found and momentous events set in motion.
Yoda had stood at Qui-Gon Jinn’s funeral pyre on Naboo, but when Anakin Skywalker lost control of his emotions and slaughtered the Tusken Raiders on Tatooine, the ancient Jedi Master could feel Qui-Gon’s alarm and anguish rippling through the Force. It seemed impossible, but Qui-Gon had somehow retained his consciousness after passing into the Force. During the Clone Wars, Anakin and Obi-Wan Kenobi both saw visions of Qui-Gon on the Force-saturated planet Mortis. Qui-Gon warned Obi-Wan that the spirits of Mortis would attempt to use Anakin for their own ends, and sought to reassure Anakin that he would bring balance to the Force. Later, Qui-Gon spoke to Yoda through the Force, leading him to the swamp world Dagobah. There, Yoda began his investigations into the mysteries of the Force. Qui-Gon guided Yoda through this journey of self-discovery, teaching him the secrets he had learned. Later, he would teach this lost lore to Obi-Wan as well.
Discovered as a slave on Tatooine by Qui-Gon Jinn and Obi-Wan Kenobi, Anakin Skywalker had the potential to become one of the most powerful Jedi ever, and was believed by some to be the prophesied Chosen One who would bring balance to the Force. A hero of the Clone Wars, Anakin was caring and compassionate, but also had a fear of loss that would prove to be his downfall.
Count Dooku was a menacing Sith Lord and central figure in the Clone Wars. Once a Jedi -- trained by Yoda -- he became disillusioned with the Jedi Order and thirsted for greater power. Dooku voluntarily left the light side behind and became Darth Sidious’ dark side disciple, taking the secret name Darth Tyranus and leading the Separatist army. Dooku advanced Sidious’s secret plot to take over the galaxy, but forgot that betrayal is the nature of the Sith.
A deadly, agile Sith Lord trained by the evil Darth Sidious, Darth Maul was a formidable warrior and scheming mastermind. He wielded an intimidating double-bladed lightsaber and fought with a menacing ferocity. Though he fell in battle against Obi-Wan Kenobi, the Zabrak from Dathomir would prove to be much harder to destroy than originally believed.
The mother of Anakin Skywalker was also a brave and resilient woman who survived life as a slave to become a Tatooine moisture farmer. Shmi surrendered her son to the Jedi Order, putting him on a path to become one of the greatest Jedi. Her death at the hands of Tusken Raiders became a critical step on Anakin's journey to the dark side.
