Starkiller was the code name for Darth Vader's secret apprentice. Trained in the ways of the Sith, Starkiller was assigned by his Master to kill all Jedi who survived Palpatine's Jedi purge. By order of his own Master, Darth Sidious, Vader killed the young apprentice. Secretly retrieving Starkiller's body, Vader saves him so that he may continue his bidding.
