Palpatine began as an active politician and Senator when he rose to power. He was also a sith lord who had several apprentices before turning Anakin to the dark side. With Darth Vader now an ally, he was able to destroy most of the other Jedi knights in the Galaxy and construct the Death Star. Years later, they were faced with Luke Skywalker, who destroyed the Death Star. Palpatine wanted Luke either dead or to kill and replace Darth Vader as his apprentice; however, this never happened. Darth Vader killed Palpatine as he was on the verge of killing Luke.
