Wasn't Anakin Skywalker 45 years of age when he died? If so, why is it that his profile says that he was born in 42 B.B.Y., not 41 B.B.Y.?--Jedi Kasra 19:53, 20 May 2007 (UTC)

- He was 10 yrs old in Ep. I Phamton Menace which was set in 32 BBY. So he was 46 yrs old in 4 ABY. Unless he died before his birthday that year. :) -Fnlayson 21:34, 20 May 2007 (UTC)
- Acually he was 9 in Episode I because Padme was 14 and he was 5 years younger. Episode II was 10 years after Episode I so he was 19, making Padme 24. Episode III was 8 years after Episode II making him 27, Padme 32. Thoughtout the Original Trilogy, it was 19 years, making him died at the age of 46 and come back to the light side of the force just before this.--Nathan Solo 10:20, 21 May 2007 (UTC)
- He was nine in TPM and 20 in AOTC, actually. There are just over ten years between Episodes I and II. Episode III was >3< years later, not 8, making him 23. QuentinGeorge 10:35, 21 May 2007 (UTC)
- Check those Ep. I & Anakin dates. -Fnlayson 13:49, 21 May 2007 (UTC)

- He was 9 years old in Ep. 1, set in 32 B.B.Y., so he was born in 41 B.B.Y., not 42 B.B.Y. Ten years later in 22 B.B.Y., which Ep. II was set in, Anakin was 19 years old. Three years later in 19 B.B.Y., which Ep. III was set in, he was 22 years old. 19 years later in 0 B.B.Y., he defeated Obi-Wan when he was 41, and 4 years later he was 45 when he killed Darth Vader and Darth Sidious, fulfilling the prophecy of the Chosen One and possibly the prophecy of the Sith'ari.--Jedi Kasra 16:41, 21 May 2007 (UTC)
- Geez finally someone gets it right.
**Titan**^{Sithspit! Talk to me!}21:38, 21 May 2007 (UTC) - Like QuentinGeorge said, he was 20 in AOTC. (Source: AOTC novel, possibly somewhere else) Add one to all the ages after that. - Lord Hydronium 21:57, 21 May 2007 (UTC)
- Kasra, what I have posted was right. And Anakin was not the Sith'ari. QuentinGeorge 05:54, 22 May 2007 (UTC)

- Geez finally someone gets it right.
- Who else could it have been? Anakin was the only "perfect" being. The other Sith'ari candidates, Jacen Solo, Revan, and Darth Bane weren't. Of those three, Bane is the only one who seems like he is the Sith'ari, if Darth Krayt turns out to be Ben Skywalker then he might be the Sith'ari. And you might be right, but 32 minus 10 is 22, so unless Anakin just became 10 when he became Obi=Wan's Padawan, I don't see how that's possible.--Jedi Kasra 20:57, 22 May 2007 (UTC)
- Where was it stated Anakin was a "perfect being"? Never. And he never led the Sith, hence he can't be the Sithari. QuentinGeorge 21:03, 22 May 2007 (UTC)

- OK, here's how it goes.

- 41.9 BBY, Anakin Skywalker is born.
- 32 BBY, Anakin Skywalker is nine years old, and turns ten at some point following the movie.
- 22 BBY, Anakin Skywalker is now twenty years old.
- 19 BBY, Anakin Skywalker is now twenty-three years old.
- 0 ABY, he's now forty-two.
- 3 ABY, he's forty-five.
- 4 ABY, he is now forty-six, unless the movie is set before his birthday, in which case he is still forty-five.

Jasca Ducato ^{(Talk to the Dark Lord)} 21:01, 22 May 2007 (UTC)

- Correct. His twentieth birthday happens a day prior to AOTC, whereas his tenth birthday is a few days AFTER TPM. QuentinGeorge 21:03, 22 May 2007 (UTC)

- Got it. Thanks, QuentinGeorge and Jasca Ducato! You're right, it was never stated anywhere that he was the perfect being but since he was conceived by the Force and not by man, and the others weren't , I assumed that he was the logical choice. And even though he was the Apprentice of Darth Sidious, he was still the Dark Lord of the Sith with Sidious, which I thought in Bane's Rule of Two, made them both leaders, even though Vader was the Sith Apprentice. If I'm wrong, then somebody edit the Sith'ari article.--Jedi Kasra 21:28, 22 May 2007 (UTC)
- DV was the head of the Imperial military. The Rule of Two is one to have the power and the other crave it. In other words, one is above the other. The point of it is to prevent/reduce Sith in-fighting. -Fnlayson 01:04, 23 May 2007 (UTC)

- So why don't we change Anakin's birthdate to 42 B.B.Y.-41.9 B.B.Y., instead of just 42 B.B.Y., Jasca Ducato said himself that that is when Anakin is born.--Jedi Kasra 03:08, 2 June 2007 (UTC)
