|“||How simple you make it—light and dark, as if there is one without the other.||„|
|~ The Son to Anakin Skywalker.|
The Son is one of the immortal Force-wielding beings known as the Ones, an embodiment of the Dark Side of the Force, born over a million years before the events of the series he appears in and is the main antagonist of Mortis story arc in the 3rd season of Star Wars: The Clone Wars.
|“||He is just so selfish and was taking too long to die, so I decided to move things along.||„|
|~ The Son.|
The Son first appears when Anakin Skywalker, Obi-Wan Kenobi and Ahsoka Tano arrive on Mortis. They meet the Son, the Daughter and the Father, the latter of whom tells them about the Light Side and Dark Side of the Force. The Son, in an effort to take control of the Force, attempts to kill the Father using Force lightning. Merely subduing him, he proceeds to corrupt Ahsoka against Anakin and Obi-Wan, albeit temporarily. This was to attempt to get Anakin to join the dark side while he retried to kill the Father. Just as he is about to kill his Father, however, the Daughter sacrifices herself, thereby throwing the Force out of balance.
|“||So you have betrayed me, father.||„|
|~ The Son's last words to the father after failing to avoid Anakin's stab and being killed|
After this, he tries to directly get Anakin to turn to the dark side by showing him his future. This vision includes such events as Order 66, Padme's death, and the destruction of Alderaan. The Son then succeeds in corrupting Anakin. However, this was also temporary, as the Father purified him later. In a final confrontation between good and evil, the Father sacrificed himself, thereby robbing the Son of his immortality. Anakin uses this advantage to kill the Son once and for all.
