The new Star Wars novel features Luke revealing to Leia the bloodline of Darth Vader

The Star Wars universe has absolutely no shortage of iconic moments, with lines of dialogue that reverberate in the larger pop culture scene. However, there are a number of key moments that were not depicted in the film script, and had to be explored in other media (or not at all). An important moment in the journey between Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) and Leia Organa (Carrie Fisher) is finally sanctified on the page — thanks to the upcoming novel Star Wars: The Princess and the Rascal. Written by Beth Revis, the novel is set in the aftermath of the events of Return of the Jediand as Excerpt recently released on Revealing this, Luke has confirmed to Leah that their father is Darth Vader. You can check out part of the snippet below.

“How are you?” Luke’s voice was sincere, but Leah wasn’t sure how to respond to it. This was supposed to be a victory, but all I really felt was confused. It’s not just about what Luke told her about her lineage – their relationship was something she had sensed for some time, and it was easy to accept Luke as her brother. She hadn’t thought about what that would mean for her biological father. No – it was not.

“It’s strength, isn’t it?” Luke asked.

Leah nodded her head. She told Luke that she couldn’t–she couldn’t–understand the power he had, but he seemed eerily calm and confident that she could indeed use the power as he did. Leia might not have any real experience with strength, but there was no denying the strength Luke had… The strength she also felt, like a fly’s wings flapping at the edge of her consciousness. Waiting to grab it.

“He told me to tell you–” Luke began, but Leah’s head is thinning, and her eyes are fierce as she stares at him.

I warned “no”.

“It was his last words. He wanted me to tell you–“

“I’m not interested.”

“It was good,” Luke insisted. “It was still good in it, after all…”

Leah thought my father was good, but she pictured in her mind Bail Organa, not Darth Vader. Thinking of Bill made her think of her prey, her mother. from her home. From everything I lost.

When she spoke to Luke earlier that night, Leah told him she remembers the mother they shared, the mother of the mother. They were vague images, feelings, really, nothing more. But she had a memory – of love, of closeness, of things she couldn’t describe. It was impossible to express her feelings in words, but there was no denying her truth. It looked like… a connection, a bond made of light.

However, Luke, who was a serious knight, strong in strength, had no memory of the woman who gave birth to both of them.

Did he have memories of their father? Is that why he was so able to forgive the monster that was Darth Vader? They were separated at birth, not only from each other but from their biological parents. Leah may have had a connection with her mother, and Luke had a connection with their father.

Leah recovered a bitter laugh. Maybe it wasn’t that deep. Maybe it was just that Luke was never tortured by their biological father like I did.”
