View Full Version : Could Mara Jade be Luke's sister?

04-03-2002, 11:15 PM
In the Episode III section on SSG we have a storyline for Episode III. At the begining Anakin has an affair with Xio Jade which causes the separation of Anakin and Padme. I don't get into the novels, but could Xio Jade be the mother of Mara Jade? If so maybe Anakin could also be her father. I guess that would mean big trouble for Luke (again) since I heard that in the novels he ends up marrying Mara Jade.:eek: Does anyone out there have any info on her that could clear this up?

First I've heard of this. Anyways, it doesn't matter Mara is EU.

Not to mention that the "storyline" in that E3 section is just speculation on behalf of forum members here. It is by no means what will actually happen in the movie.

I wouldn't put too much bearing on what you read in there (no disrespect to those who posted in there, including me...) but those threads are just us fans talking about what we'll think what will happen.

i don't think that Mara Jade is Lukes Sister, and i don't think thats what caused the sepration of Anakin and Padme.

and one more thing, Mara Jade is not totally EU, in Rotj, Mara Jade is in Jabba's Palace disuised as a Dancer sent on an attempt to kill Luke Skywalker by the Emporor. She's the one thats next Bib Fortuna right after the Droid Torture Chamber in the Special Edition. :D

First off, that Xio Jade crap was from Supershadows little wet dream, not OUR story in Mace's Death.

Second, seeing as how it was Supershadows crappy fan fiction and has no bearing on the actual storyline, No, I don't think Mara is Lukes' sister.

Third. The chick standing next to Bib is Jess. A delightful young woman who should not be confused with Mara's undercover disguise of Arica, who did NOT appear in the film.

I could believe that Mara jade is Lukes sister.. he loves to kiss his sisiter doesnt he?? I thought I read somewhere in the EU stuff that mara jade and Luke get married?? Well if thats true then Mara jade is definitely his sister. luke is drawn to incestral relationships.. its the will of the force.

I don't think Mara Jade is an ROTJ. The character was created by Timothy Zahn for his first book trilogy if I remember correctly. That was when, 90-92? They just add little backstories for all the background characters for the cantina, Jabba's Palace, Pod Race, etc. That's where the whole Mara Jade as an assassin in Jabba's Palace came about.

Of course he likes kissing his female siblings...! What would you expect from a back... uh... back-- erhm... backSAND (obviously not "woods") kind of guy? So uncultured... so unsophisticated. Dude, that's just plain wrong. Bad Luke... Baaaaaaaaad Luke!

Actually, Xio is not what seperates Padme and Anakin.

If you really want to know, I could tell you my version. Well not my version, but from what I heard from a good source, its the actual version.

Anakin and Padme are still in love. Except Padme decides to have an affair. Who is the affair with? Well who does Anakin end up hating/turning on?

Yup, Obi-Wan Kenobi. Apparently Obi and Padme get their groove on and Anakin finds out. He gets upset at Padme (who secretly is carrying his twin children. Probably shown in an older state before movie ends). Which is why Padme has to leave away from Anakin and be kept hidden. Also this is where is dark rage fully takes control of him and he joins with Palpatine to rid off the rest of the Jedi. And also the reason why he and Obi end up fighting (as well as in ANH).

i don't think thats why, i think its just because Anakin becomes Vader.

I really can't see Gl writing a bunch infidelity into star wars.Besides how much reliable information could there possible be on a script that I would bet is no where near complete?
Some ones over active imagination would be my guess.Anakin has enough rage already without some stupid soap opera love triangle crap pushing him over the edge.IMHO

Wolfwood319, I think he was talking about the SPECIAL EDITION, with ADDED scenes.

Rollo is correct though, that was Jess.

And Luke not only marries Mara, they have a son named Ben!

I believe Luke and Mara have a son named Anakin.

04-25-2002, 03:48 AM
No, Luke and Mara's son is named Ben, that much EU I know. Han and Leia have a son named Anakin.

Hmmm, odd since I saw it on the back of one of the new Jedi books. I'll recheck tomorrow and post what I find.

Han and Leia had a set of twin (Jacen and Jaina). A little while later they had a son, whom Leia named Anakin (after her father). The twins are around 18 or so in the most current novel, Anakin would have been around 16-17. I say WOULD HAVE BEEN, because Anakin Died.

He was killed by the Yuzhan Vong, and his body was creamated in the traditional Jedi manner.

Luke and Mara just had a son, he is still an infant, and his name is Ben, Luke named him after Obi-Wan.

The latest Star Wars Homing Beacon hints at the return of little Anakin.

About the EU - I thought Lucas had stated as part of the agreement to authors that they could not marry Luke off or give him children?

05-04-2002, 01:29 PM
Little Anakin's body is nothing but ASH. He was CREAMATED, set on fire, burned to a crisp.

The "hint" was pointing towards Jacen, who was also believed dead. In fact, Leia is the only one who still believes that Jacen is till alive.

As foe the "agreement" about Luke not getting married or having kids? Who knows?

The wedding was in comics and books. And there was a MAJOR storyline with the whole "Mara having Luke's baby" thing.
