[Translate to English:] Darth Vader

The dark side of the Force

Darth Vader is the embodiment of the dark side of the Force. With its size of 2.03 meters and the black mask as well as the wide, black cape, he already looks very imposing and terrifying.
But not only is his appearance impressive, his abilities are also terrifying. Only the Emperor appears to be even more powerful than Darth Vader.

Star Wars fans love or hate him, depending on which side of the force they sympathize with. Darth Vader, once known as Anakin Skywalker, did not always fall for the dark side. But he couldn't resist the temptation. His former master Obi-Wan Kenobi wounded him so badly in a fight that from then on he was forced to wear a mask and armor. This mask creates the characteristic breathing noise, which probably causes goose bumps of horror for every opponent.
