Solo, Anakin

Han Solo and Leia Organa Solo's second son, Anakin was born on Nespis VIII about a year and a half after his siblings, Jaina and Jacen. He was named for this maternal grandfather, Anakin Skywalker. He was incredibly strong in the Force, especially for a child so young. By the time he was three, Anakin's gifts had become obvious to his uncle, Luke Skywalker. By the time he was seven, he had demonstrated a remarkable ability to make anything mechanical work, regardless of whether he understands the device's purpose or its components. His siblings, Jacen and Jaina, have discovered his abilities, and use them to bypass locks and security cameras. They even tried once to have Anakin create a working droid from various scrap components. Unfortunately, the primary motivator Jacen found was faulty, and the droid blew up. Anakin figured prominently in the discovery and activation of some of the Corellian planetary repulsors during the reign of Thrackan Sal-Solo on Corellia. He continued to show great aptitude with the Force, and when his siblings returned from their initial studies on Yavin 4, Anakin was allowed to go as well. He was eleven at the time, and was immediately befriended by Tahiri Veila. Together, they discovered the Golden Globe beneath the Palace of the Woolamander and the existence of the ancient Jedi Master Ikrit. After a great deal of thought and meditation on the Globe, Anakin and Tahiri were able to penetrate it and release the Massassi spirits trapped within. He returned to Yavin 4 following the attack by the Shadow Academy, and helped rebuild the Great Temple by viewing its rubble as a huge puzzle to be solved. Anakin, as well as his brother Jacen, trained directly with Luke, when Luke began moving the new Jedi Knights back to the pre-Empire format of teaching. Both brothers had different ideas on what the future of the Jedi should be. Jacen agreed with Luke, that the formation of a new Jedi Council would help bring the vigilantes under control. Jacen also believed more in the spiritual aspects of the Force, while Anakin held to the physical uses of the Force. They clashed often, claiming their intense lightsaber duels were simply training. When the Yuuzhan Vong invaded the galaxy, Anakin was forced to act on his beliefs, and doggedly protected Mara Jade Skywalker on Dantooine. After saving her, Anakin learned that he was needed at Centerpoint Station. Archaeologists and engineers at the Station had been trying to reactivate it, but discovered that the Station had attuned itself to Anakin's fingerprints, brainwaves, and DNA. It wouldn't activate without him. The New Republic hoped to use the repulsors onboard the massive station to wipe out the Yuuzhan Vong fleet, but Anakin refused to be the wielder of such power. Thackan Sal-Solo took the shot instead, but only succeeded in destroying much of the New Republic's fleet at Fondor, including most of the Hapan fleet which supported it. Thrackan was portrayed by the media as a hero, while the Jedi Knights were vilified for their lack of action. In the wake of the Battle of Fondor, Anakin's training was taken up by Luke himself, in an effort to refocus Anakin's powers. Anakin grew stronger and more respected among the Jedi, and was eventually chosen to lead the strike team which was dispatched to Myrkr to eliminate the voxyn queen. However, once aboard the Baanu Rass, Anakin took an amphistaff wound to the abdomen, and found himself dying. However, his connection to the Force remained strong, and he gathered energy around him like a magnet. Anakin became glowing extension of the Force itself, almost invincible as he cut down Yuuzhan Vong in order to get his friends closer to the voxyn queen. However, the intense energy quickly consumed him, and Anakin died shortly after ensuring that Tahiri was safe. His physical form suddenly radiated an intense light shortly before he died. Anakin's body was recovered by the Jedi survived the assault in the Baanu Rass, in an effort to bury him within the Republic. Anakin was laid to rest on Hapes, where his physical form disintegrated into thousands of motes of firelight when his bier was lit.
