Which of all the characters suffered the most in your opinion? Anakin : - Lived a life of slavery for 9 years - Was taken away from his mother, the only person he's ever loved - Denied Jedi training, his greatest aspiration ever, but the council changes its decision later. - He's removed from Padme, who he has a crush on, for 10 years and it develops into a bit of an obsession. - Is plagued by nightmares of his mother suffering. - Feels held back by Obi-Wan. - Meets Padme again, and has his declarations of love thrown back in his face, but gets mixed signals from her. She later says she loves him. - Loses several Jedi comrades in the clone wars. - Loses an arm in a duel with Count Dooku - Faces possible expultion from the Jedi order due to his attachment & forbidden marriage to Padme. - Is messed up horribly in a battle with Obi-Wan \ and \ or other Jedi. - Rest unknown. Obi-Wan -His master picks another padawan over him, and as an afterthought claims he is ready for the Jedi trials. -Loses his master in a fight with a sith warrior. -Is forced by his dying master to take on an apprentice he feels could be dangerous. -Constantly needs to discipline Anakin, since he is too hot headed and irrational, and arrogant. -Suffers injuries at the hand of Count Dooku, his own Master's master. -Is betrayed by Anakin on numerous occasions. -Is forced to "kill" his own apprentice, who, despite their differences, was a good friend to him. -Has to live with the fact that this friend, who survives their battle, assists the greatest tyrant in known history in dominating the galaxy and hunting down the Jedi. -Has to go into hiding on a desert planet, looking after the son of the second baddest person in the galaxy. -Sacrifices himself so he could be more powerful in death, so he could train Anakin's son to defeat him and the Emperor. So far, I think Obi-Wan and Anakin are about equal in the suffering department. What insights do you have?
