He was once Anakin Skywalker, a Jedi Knight. Darth Sidious, AKA Chancellor Palpatine, turned him to the Dark Side. He wears a robotic suit of Armor because Obi-Wan chopped off his arms and legs and he fell in lava which burned his lungs to bits. Later, at the Battle of Endor, he turned good and threw the Emperor down a reactor shaft in the Death Star.
Anakin Skywalker fought in the Clone Wars on the Jedi Army, partnered with Obi-Wan Kenobi. He was the only Jedi on the Council who was not a Jedi Master, and when Palpatine assigned him to the Council, he became angry that they would not make him a Jedi Master. Palpatine used this rage to further bring him to the Dark Side, eventually turning him against Obi-Wan in a brutal battle, where Obi-Wan nearly killed him.
He later proceded on, after being saved by Chancellor Palpatine, to train a Jedi Apprentice known as Starkiller. He was killed though, by Darth Vader and Palpatine after being threatened for trying to overthrow his master (Sidious). After the creation of the Death Star, he used it to destroy the planet Alderaan. He also killed his old master, Obi-Wan, and killed Darth Sidious to save his son.
