Background On Skywalker

After much research at the request of the Jedi Temple, Clone Intelligence has found out more about how Anakin Skywalker and his mother, Shmi, fell into the hands of the notorious slaver, Gardulla the Hutt.

This is part of their story.

Back on Tatooine, as you may know, slavery is part of life. People went to slave markets to buy and sell slaves from all over the known worlds.
One particular slave market holder, a Jawa named Jawania, became well known for his special promotional contests - people would come from all over the Empire to win one of his slaves.

His most popular contest was a game where you had to try to throw a coin into a Tuskin Raider urn. If you've seen pictures, you'll know that these urns have very narrow necks, so the game was quite challenging, but if you succeeded, you would win a slave from the market, so the prizes were good.

One day, Gardulla the Hutt returned from the market with two slaves, Shmi and her son Anakin. Her husband immediately berated her for spending so much money to buy a slave, but she told him that she had won the contest, so it had only cost a single penny.

"After all," Gardulla the Hutt said "You've always told me that a penny urned is a penny slaved."

that was bad enough to report to Lord Vader...

I agree with Jon...where do you get this stuff from ... I thought the Emperor had banned bad puns!

there aughtta be a pun tax! That would pay for all the damages being done by the pesky rebels!

Arrrghhh! Man, had you been throwing bombs like that during the fight with the rebellion, the Emperor would still be in power!

You do get points for creativity.
