Everyone who has watched Star Wars: The Force Awakens has seen the mysterious Supreme Leader Snoke. But who is he? Good evidence suggests he is Darth Plagueis the Wise. Without him there would be no Skywalker family and no Star Wars. He lived a life shrouded in darkness and caused all the problems that plagued the galaxy. Few in the galaxy had ever reached his level of power. Evil has a name. Darth Plagueis was a dark lord of the Sith and the master of Darth Sidious. He later became the master of Kylo Ren. Not only this, but he is also the father of Darth Vader.
A side by side comparison of the two shows a broken pair of similar appearance. They have severe burns all over their bodies. They also took an awful blow to the left side of their faces. The most obvious wounds are where someone took a light saber and cracked them on top of the head. Not only this, but their skin is pale because they refrained from the light.
Darth Plagueis poses a menacing figure. He speaks to his minions where he appears in holograms about thirty feet tall. He is a malignant narcissist who believes the entire galaxy should rest beneath his thumb. His personality stems from his issues of entitlement. He came from a long line of Sith lords. People know him for his brilliant and logical mind. He is physically frail, but he is powerful mentally and also strong in the Dark Side of the Force. He talks down to generals and gives them orders. He belittles the emperor and his many accomplishments. He also possesses the authority to chastise Darth Vader and his actions. Also Darth Plagueis, and he alone, managed to manipulate his great grandson Ben Solo. He turned him to the Dark Side to fulfill Darth Vader’s perverted mission.
The greatest abilities of Darth Plagueis was to create life and to cheat death. He came up with the Grand Plan to take over the galaxy and destroy his sworn enemy the Jedi. He waited over a hundred years to see his plan unfold. He created minions to carry out his evil bidding. He also took a young apprentice named Palpatine from the planet Naboo. He later renamed him Darth Sidious. His apprentice was also a malignant narcissist, and the two orbited each other as a binary system while they sought to increase their power. Darth Sidious craved his master’s knowledge and wisdom, and Darth Plagueis wanted to feed off his apprentice’s powers of charm and brute strength.
