Anakin the person VS Anakin the Force user. The question I'm asking in this thread is, who is Anakin Skywalker? Is he a tool of the Force, created just to bring balance? Or is he a person born with strong Force abilities who also can bring balance? Yes I know about the "There was no father" thing but I'll ask the question anyway. Who do people think he is deep down, I'm curious. Is Anakin's personal life just a side issue of why he was created? Did the Force just want a tool and as a side effect got a man? Maybe this thread is a waste of time but hey it's my time. Personally I believe in Anakin the man with the "potential" to do more. I am not and never have been in favor of the Anakin as some kind of super-being theory. Personally I found the fact the G.L had to flat out say there was no father kind of insulting. I mean most people got the idea that he was important on their own. I personally didn't need a plot point like that to spell it out for me. Ok enough ranting and on with any discussion.
