Bio: This character is included to differentiate between the actual Palpatine, who is entirely canonical, and any cloned version of the character, about which there is canonical dispute. No attempt is made in this database to differentiate between the "different" clones, as some lasted less an a full issue.
This character exists only In the Star Wars Expanded Univere. The Palpatine "clone" is no other than Palpatine himself and not a mere replica. Palpatine lives primarily as energy and, with the help of the Dark Side of the Force, can enter any body he wishes. However, flesh does not support easily his great power in the Dark Side. The host body ages too fast and shows signs of advance decay. He is therefore constantly in search of another host.
The Palpatine "Clone" was ultimately defeated in Empire's End.
