Introduction

We all know the story, right? A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away a child is born who's been prophesied to bring balance to the Force. Said child grows up a slave and only has his mother to support him. He's eventually found by an order of Jedi Knights who train him to be a force for good. Problems arise and the child instead finds himself aligned with the forces of darkness. A few movies later and he finally redeems himself in order to save his own son. But what if things had been different? What if Darth Vader had the chance to actually raise and spend time with Luke Skywalker? Cartoonist Jeffrey Brown endeavored to answer that question in his book Darth Vader and Son.

Darth Vader and Son Inspired Dog Name Considerations

Darth Vader and Son adds some much needed levity to the tragic tale of the Chosen One. Whereas Darth Vader's life was wrought with suffering and death in the Star Wars canon, Brown's re-imagining of things allows the Sith Lord to experience something he never did in universe - what it's like to be a father. Indeed when you look at things from a distance, the most tragic thing about Darth Vader's life is that he never had the chance to really be with his family. Brown's playful and humorous book rights that wrong, mostly playing things up for laughs but nonetheless having an endearing and earnest quality to it. It's worth noting that Brown also followed this book up with a sequel - Vader's Little Princess a year later. Whereas Darth Vader and Son naturally re-imagines Vader's relationship with Luke Skywalker, Vader's Little Princess is all about Darth Vader spending quality time with General Leia Organa Solo when she was a kid. 

As you might expect, Darth Vader and Son is filled to the brim with winks and nods to the Star Wars mythos; characters from the original six films appear in the book, ranging from massive fan favorites like Darth Maul to minor characters like Cornelius Evazan (that guy who said he didn't like Luke in Episode 4 at the Mos Eisley Cantina). With a list of characters like this, finding the ideal dog tag will be a breeze. Start off with Anakin and Amidala and you will be headed in the right direction.
