The Lars family was a family that lived primarily on the planet Tatooine as moisture farmers. The earliest known members of the family were Lef and Gredda Lars, who had two sons: Cliegg and Edern. With his wife Aika, Cliegg had a son named Owen. After his wife died, Cliegg married Shmi Skywalker, whom he freed from slavery. Cliegg's son, Owen, married a girl named Beru Whitesun.
When Anakin Skywalker, the son of Shmi, became Darth Vader, his son, Luke Skywalker, was cared for by Owen and his wife, Beru, whom he called "Uncle Owen" and "Aunt Beru." They were killed by Imperial stormtroopers shortly before the Battle of Yavin. Since they had no blood descendants, the family line ended with them.
