"The Chancellor loves power. If he has any other passion, I have not seen it."
About this creation
Palpatine was a Sith Lord who orchestrated one of the greatest Sith victories in their history. As a young boy Palpatine was taken as the apprentice of Darth Plagueis and he learned much of his power from him until he slaughtered him in his sleep.
Palpatine soon began to set his plan in motion, working his way into the Senate and climbing the ranks to Chancellor. After using his puppet Maul to reveal the Sith Palpatine began the Clone Wars, making do with Count Dooku as his apprentice until he could move on Skywalker.
When the Jedi learned of Palpatine four of the Order's best went to arrest him, Palpatine defeated them all but was over powere by Mace Windu. However, Anakin came in and Palpatine seduced him to the Dark Side and they killed Mace. The two began the Jedi purge and ruled the Empire together. Palpatine was eventually defeated by Anakin when Luke managed to convince his father to rejoin the Light Side of the Force.
