Hey guys. Here's some character info and a timeline for my story. Please let me know what you think. Thank you.
Anakin Skywalker - son of the Jedi Master Qui-Gon, training under Obi-Wan in the Clone Wars. He knows little of his father as Qui-Gon left him after his birth to help the Republic. He's the main character, as we see his fall to the Dark Side. Studying under Obi-Wan, he learns of combat and battle tactics to be employed on the field of battle.
Vader - A being cloned from the corpse of Xanatos, the founder of the Clone Masters and ex-pupil of Qui-Gon. He was made to fight for the Republic, but he's found by Obi-Wan and taken in as his student. He's sometimes at odds with Anakin, and he has a strange relationship with the Jedi Council, who ordered him to hide his identity as a clone from anyone.
Obi-Wan Kenobi - After being abandoned by Qui-Gon, he becomes the student of the former Grandmaster, Yoda. During the Clone Wars, he trains Anakin after discovering him on Galidraan, and soon discovers and trains Vader. Being trained more by Yoda, he's more insightful and a little calculating of battles while rushing to help people.
Padme Amidala - a noble of Naboo, a planet that seceded from the Republic. Though her planet is independent, she's a secret spy for Bail Organa and shares a secret friendship with Anakin that grows into their marriage.
Cody - a clone of Jango Fett in the Republic army. He serves more as the Chewie of the group, but provides insight on the roles of clones in the Republic.
44 BBY – After the massacre of the True Mandalorians on Galidraan, Dooku learns the massacre had been a deception. He leaves the Jedi Order and becomes the count of his homeworld, Serenno. Many other Jedi follow suit, many of them once part of Dooku’s strike team on Galidraan. Among the Jedi, Qui-Gon Jinn goes into self-exile, which takes him to meeting Shmi Skywalker on Tatooine. The two fall in love and marry. Later in the year, the two would have a son named Anakin.
In light of the many deserters, Yoda steps down from the council and trains a master-less Obi-Wan.
42 BBY – Many of the Jedi deserters have spread across the Outer Rim. Some have fallen and taken control of crime organizations while others have sided with independent planets. Fear of these rogue Jedi forces Outer Rim worlds to turn to cloners for soldiers.
Qui-Gon leaves his wife and returns to the Jedi to deal with this.
41 BBY – The fallen Jedi and Qui-Gon’s ex-pupil, Xanatos, gathers many cloners and forms the Clone Masters. Many of the fallen Jedi join Xanatos, and fear of the Jedi grows both in and out of the Republic.
37 BBY – The Outbound Flight is sent out to the Unknown Regions and disappears. The outcry leads to building armies; the Republic recruiting while the Clone Masters clone their soldiers.
Hearing intelligence information on Xanatos trying to clone himself, Qui-Gon intervenes and duels his former apprentice. The two die from their wounds, but Qui-Gon manages to tell the Jedi of his son on Tatooine. Meanwhile, Xanatos’ corpse is hidden and some of his DNA is taken to be copied
With Xanatos’ death, the Clonemasters attack the Republic, beginning the Clone Wars.
36 BBY – Vader is birthed from Xanatos’ DNA on Telos IV and is watched by Atha Prime’s subordinates. Meanwhile, the Republic commissions Kamino’s cloners to clone soldiers.
35 BBY – The war goes on at a stalemate (with battles like Honoghr), the Jedi intervene but restrict it to Jedi Knights and Masters. Padawans have been forbidden from the front lines.

33 BBY – Seeing the Republic fail, many of the Mid and Outer Rim worlds secede to become neutral in the war, including Naboo.
32 BBY – With the Clone Wars going on, crime increases on Tatooine and many hide away on Galidraan. Among the refugees are the Skywalkers and the Lars families, the latter being helped by (their long-lost relative?) Obi-Wan Kenobi. There, Anakin meets Hondo Ohnaka.
31 BBY – Shmi Skywalker dies and Anakin is taken in the Lars family. He begins working for Hondo, honing his pilot skills.

28 BBY – During a military mission, Obi-Wan and Anakin discover Vader in a cloning facility on Telos IV. Vader is trained Obi-Wan, as the Jedi are low in their numbers. However, the council has Vader hide his identity as a clone.
