During their duel on Bespin in The Empire Strikes Back, Darth Vader sliced off Luke Skywalker's right hand, sending it, and his lightsaber, falling into the depths of Cloud City. Believed lost by Skywalker, the hand and its weapon were eventually found. The hand was stored along with the lightsaber in the Emperor's private storehouse in Mt. Tantiss. When C'baoth the Guardian of Wayland found the storehouse, and Luke's hand, "Cell sample B-2332-54" was taken from the hand, and became the basis for the clone of Luke Skywalker.

The Mad Jedi maintained a series of working spaarti cloning cylinders in Mt. Tantiss, and it was within one of these that Luuke Skywalker was grown. Though cloning technology had advanced since the days of the Clone Wars, the process was not perfected. The creation and growth acceleration of Luuke was rushed, meaning the clone became mentally unstable. Luuke was given little independence, and was largely controlled by the mental influence of Joruus himself. That C'baoth was also insane did not improve Luuke's chances.


Luuke was created as nothing more than a mindless killer, and he was tasked with the destruction of Luke Skywalker, should the Jedi refuse to Joruus. Then, C'baoth would at least have one version of Skywalker as his apprentice. Luke faced the clone in the Mt. Tantiss throne room, where the Rebels sought to activate the self-destruct system, when he, Mara Jade and the heroes of the Alliance staged an attack on Wayland. Using the lightsaber that was once Anakin Skywalker's, Luuke fought his 'parent' in a vicious battle across the throne room. C'baoth was simultaneously able to control and empower Luuke, and battle his other enemies- a testament to his dark powers.


However, Joruus could not stop the intervention of luck. Though the Sith Emperor was able to disarm Han and Leia Organa Solo, Mara Jade managed to grab Leia's lightsaber. Confused, C'baoth let his guard down, and Mara launched into action, loosing Talon Karrde's pet vornskrs on Joruus. Luke had led his clone towards a panel of viewscreens, and baited Luuke into slicing one with his sabre. Sparks flew into the clone's face, causing him to cry out - the first sound he made during the entire battle. Turning in confusion with C'baoth distracted, Luuke was killed by Mara. With the reborn Emperor's last command now fulfilled, in a fashion- Kill Luke Skywalker- Mara was free to, from a kneeling stance, kill Darth C'baoth. Luuke's lightsaber was recovered by Luke and presented to Mara as a gift. Talon Karrde is a character in the Expanded Star Wars universe. ... ...
