Rey's Father: We didn't know that Palpatine really had a family until The Rise of Skywalker. I have doubts on whether Anakin had told Palpatine of it himself. The first major piece of evidence is the fact that Palpatine tells Anakin early on that he can show him how to save his wife from certain death. Little Sheev was born in 84 BBY (Before the Battle of Yavin in Star Wars: A New Hope) to a … Rey's father is Palpatine's son, and he and his wife have a daughter. Like, I know these are all fictional characters, and it’s sort of weird to be thinking this much about the Emperor maybe hooking up with Sly Moore (or mean gangster lady!) What do we know about the Palpatine family and Sheev's life? So, you're saying, if it wasn't for Panaka, the Emperor would never find out about anakin and padme, and he would never tempt anakin, and anakin would never become darth vader or save palpatine from … Anakin was concerned for the health of his pregnant wife, Padmé Amidala, and Palpatine planted the idea in Anakin's head that becoming powerful … In the first chapter of “Wild Space”, which is between the Battle of Geonosis and the final scenes of AotC, Yoda and Obi-Wan talk about Anakin's attachment to Padme and Yoda tells Obi-Wan to convince Padme to break up with Anakin.

Twenty-two years before the Battle of Yavin, and shortly after the outbreak of the Clone Wars, After Windu dies, Palpatine further squeezes Anakin and orders him to wipe out the remaining Jedi because they pose a threat. Palpatine was enormously influential in shaping Anakin’s understanding of the Force and the Dark side, throughout the Star Wars prequel trilogy and beyond. Why did he tell Palpatine? How did he learn of it? Palpatine tempted Anakin with ways to save loved ones from death, but for that to be effective he must first know of Anakin's vision. Palpatine plays the scene carefully — as usual — and when Windu has him within reach, Palpatine uses the moment to convince Anakin that the Jedi are trying to take over the government. Laying the trap for Luke Skywalker. Now the validity of Darth Vader #25 aside, there’s a chance that Palpatine did create his own child, presumably around the time Anakin had turned to … If Sidious did not create Anakin, how do you think he was born if he did not have a father? but the fact is Rise of Skywalker writer/director J.J. Abrams has made us think about this.
