Bio:
Palpatine was a successful Dark lord of the Sith. A product of the Sith's Rule of Two, he would eventually exact the Sith's ultimate revenge by driving the Jedi into near extinction and taking control of the galaxy. Palpatine rose to lead the universe as Emperor by secretly initiating the Clone Wars conflict with his apprentice, Darth Tyranus, the former Jedi Count Dooku. He ruled the galaxy with an iron fist until he was ultimately betrayed by his last apprentice, Darth Vader. He returned several times as a clone, but he would be ultimately defeated by Darth Vader's children, Luke Skywalker and Leia Organa-Solo.

Notes:
Palpatine appeared in many comics, most notably in the Dark Empire saga and the prequel era comic books. He appeared in all but one of the films, 1977's Star Wars, but he is revealed to be the main antagonist of the series and architect of many evil plots.

Famous Quotes: - Add a Famous Quote
"And you, young Skywalker. We will watch your career with great interest."

"It is with great reluctance that I have agreed to this calling. I love democracy. I love the Republic. The power you give me I will lay down when this crisis has abated. And as my first act with this new authority, I will create a Grand Army of the Republic . . ."
