Starkiller is a character from the Star Wars franchise, first seen in the Force Unleashed video game in 2008. He is a powerful force-sensitive clone of the original Darth Vader, created by Darth Sidious to serve as his Sith apprentice. In recent years, Starkiller has become a popular character among Star Wars fans, and his status as a canonical character has been the subject of much debate.
What is Canon in Star Wars?
In the Star Wars universe, “canon” refers to any element of the story, characters, or universe that is considered to be officially part of the Star Wars story. This includes the films, the television series, the books, and all other forms of media that are considered to be part of the Star Wars universe. Anything that is not officially part of this canon is considered to be “non-canon.”
What is the Canon Status of Starkiller?
The canon status of Starkiller is somewhat complicated. While he was originally created for the Force Unleashed video game, he has since made appearances in a number of other Star Wars stories, including the Star Wars: The Clone Wars television series. This suggests that he is at least partially canonical.
However, there are still some elements of Starkiller’s backstory and character that are not considered to be part of the official canon. For example, some of the storylines in the Force Unleashed video game are not considered to be part of the official Star Wars story. As such, the exact canon status of Starkiller is still up for debate.
At the end of the day, the canon status of Starkiller is still a matter of debate among Star Wars fans. While he has made appearances in a number of stories that are considered to be part of the official canon, there are still some aspects of his character and backstory that are not considered to be part of the Star Wars universe. Ultimately, it is up to the individual fan to decide whether or not Starkiller is a canonical character in the Star Wars universe.
