He was once named Anakin Skywalker, but is now known as, including full name and titles, Dark Lord of the Sith, Lord Darth Vader. He was once addressed as Supreme Leader, or Lord Vader, by his underlings in the First Order. Vader was also a guardian in Stellarclan, and the Advisor of Discordance in Windclan. He carried this proudly, until he was forced to step down by his Master.
Others who have dared to deviate from his name have called him Vader, Dark Vapor, Darth, Metalfasa, Vader the Inhaler, Daddy Vader, Major Metal, and Ani. He is biologically a hetrosexual male. Nothing more, nothing less. No, guys. Daddy can't be gay with you.
Vader is a Panthera leo leo, also known as a Barbary Lion. After his accident, he became an artificial hybrid, given the robotic arms of a gorilla. For a long time, he felt misshapen and like a puzzle whose pieces were forced together. Unable to hold his weapon in his mouth, it made battle difficult for him, until his hind legs were ripped off in a 5-on-1 raid from the Exiles. He rebuilt his legs, and they allow him to work on two legs. As a Barbary lion, he is nine feet, five inches long. Due to his cybernetics, it has artificially made him taller, whether or not he is on two or four legs. On all fours, he is five feet tall, because his arms are artificially longer, causing his form to have an upward slope. On his two legs, his improved hindlegs are made to his proportions- four feet and 3/4 inches. This makes him 14.25 feet tall, proportionally. He does not have a tail, so this throws off his balance, causing his legs to be bent half the time.
Vader was born to a slave in the Nambia Desert.
He is currently an advisor of Windclan. Formerly, he was part of Stellarclan, and leader of The First Order.
Vader was an Olympian (SHP) in Stellarclan, and an Advisor in Windclan. For him, the Order came first, reigning as its Supreme Leader, but has since been forced to disband. The loss of his ranks was a punch in the gout- as the Supreme Leader, he was the highest possible rank in The First Order. He was often regarded as a godlike figure, treated with utmost respect, knowing that he stood high above any other rank and had harnessed his strength beyond what would be considered the average mortal’s capacity.
This is true, even after Vader was confined to his armor. However, Vader is only 80% of the power he used to hold.
Vader's body is contained inside a walking life support system. It has also been called a walking bipap machine. He does not have a tail. While Vader once had flowing fur, a magnificent mane, and blue eyes, things he were proud of, Vader makes himself accept his new form.
Barbary lions were the largest of the lion sub-species- Vader is nearly 800 pounds, with his body being 660 pounds, and his suit weighing over two hundred pounds. (To compare, an African lion averages 400 lbs, with the female averaging 275.) He is nine feet, five inches long head to hind.
Despite being heavier and longer than African lions, Vader stood between at 3"3' at the withers, anywhere from 3-11 inches shorter than African lions. Barbary limbs are shorter, the torso more robust and muscular with a deeper chest and well-rounded hindquarters. Vader had a wide face and rounded cheeks; his muzzle, which is shorter than those of African lions, are also proportionally narrower.
More specifically, Barbaries have a higher occiput (back of the head) with a more pointed crown, creating a straighter line between the tip of the nose and the back of the head.
Darth Vader is five years old.
The most well-known characteristic, and what Vader used to display proudly, was the thick, dark, full mane of the males that extends over the shoulders and along the belly. The mane itself was blonde around the face, with the rest of it being a mixture of tawny grey, bright brown, and blackish brown hairs; it becomes darker towards the lion's rear. Barbaries also have slightly darker, more greyish fur and a noticeably shaggier pelt; Vader had thick, full tail-tuft.
Hell, Vader could have been a movie star or a male L'oreal model, really. He had round, oval eyes, the color of the ocean. His eyes are now an intense yellow, with a red rim, having been described as "intense yellow eyes of murder." On clothing and accessories, Vader has shown to prefer to prefer darker tones and fabrics.
The extent of his suit is described in the next post.
Darth Vader is not a kind man. If he seeks to kill or or dispose of you, and sees that his troops have failed him, Vader will hunt his prey down relentlessly, without pause or mercy, and kill them the first chance he gets.
Vader is a consummate liar. Meaning he is not your ordinary everyday lying jerk. This is the liar so good you never, ever want to play poker with them because you'd go home without your underwear and short next week's paycheck. He will lie when he needs, in order to achieve his goals, so skilled at it, that many easily fall for it. Most notably with people outside the Order, trying to pry him for information on the Order. He convinced Io, one of the two lords of Stellarclan, that the Order was a group or refugees.
Vader is a Combat Pragmatist, a character who is willing to do anything in a fight to win. He will not hesitate to take them down quickly, willing to bring a lightsaber to a sword fight.
Vader is a knowledgeable guy, being Dangerously Genre Savvy. In brief, a person smart enough to know a thing or two about the very situation they're in. And thus, he will usually bring attention to this very fact. Though they don't always overlap, being Dangerously Genre Savvy does help on the road to being a Magnificent Bastard and/or No-Nonsense Nemesis. Bonus points if the action is only superior if one assumes that the world runs on narrative logic rather than reality.
Vader does not like being bossed around. He hates being on any man's leash, he will go ballistic if he is ever held hostage, and will plot your downfall if you make him your pawn. If he is some other being's Dragon, the penultimate challenge that the hero must face before confronting the Big Bad, he will plot his boss' downfall.
It is theorized that Vader has Borderline Personality Disorder. This means Vader shows various symptoms, such as:
- Having an unstable or dysfunctional self-image or a distorted sense of self (how one feels about one’s self)
- Feelings of isolation, boredom and emptiness
- Difficulty feeling empathy for others
- A history of unstable relationships that can change drastically from intense love and idealization to intense hate
- A persistent fear of abandonment and rejection, including extreme emotional reactions to real and even perceived abandonment
- Intense, highly changeable moods that can last for several days or for just a few hours
- Strong feelings of anxiety, worry and depression
- Impulsive, risky, self-destructive and dangerous behaviors
- Unstable career plans, goals and aspirations
Some of Vader's positive personality traits include striving forward, being relentless, intimidating, looming, commanding, and strong.
Some of Vader's negative personality traits include being.... Darth Vader.
While Vader has coated his prosthetics with Silicon, he is weak to electricity. He is also emotionally clingy and can barely handle loss.
He is afraid of losing people.
Vader has a disdain for shifting- he feels that it allows someone to cheat responsibilities and even death. From his point of view, if you shift in battle to achieve the advantage, then you are not worthy of combat at all.
Vader is married to Padme Amidala. He, before and after life in the suit, has had a surprising number of love interests, most of them being one-sided.
This includes Whisperbreeze, a stormtrooper from the exiles, who Vader felt sympathy and related to, due her own massive burns. Vader even considered crafting a suit like his own for her. Most of the First Order, as he is referred to as "Daddy V" as an inside joke. It was possible for Vader and General Hux to be an interest, as Vader trusted Hux the most, and is the less shiny special snowflake to him. Kylo Ren, his apprentice, was the shiny special snowflake. Vader took the most pride in his apprentice, Mauled pup, but lost him, too.
Before being placed into the suit, Vader had a pregnant wife, a lioness named Padmé Amidala. Vader believes he killed her in his anger. To his surprise, Vader later met a lion named Luke Skywalker, and seeks to have him.
Vader's children are dubbed as, "Vaderlings." His cubs include:
Padme xx Anakin Skywalker:
Vanitas xx Padme Amidala:
Mona D.S.O.A Cassopiea D.S.O.A
Navi D.S.O Amidala
Darth Vader xx Padme Amidala:
Vader had a litter with Padme by using a second body. As of yet, his own children have never seen his real face.
Vader's faceclaim, obviously, is Darth Vader.
Vader's TV Tropes include:
