A moisture farmer on planet Tatooine, Cliegg Lars purchases the slave Shmi Skywalker from local junk dealer Watto. Lars soon frees and marries her, pleased to have a good woman to share his life. Years later, a visiting Anakin Skywalker and Padmé Amidala learn from a recently injured Cliegg that Shmi has been abducted by marauding Tusken Raiders. Anakin exacts revenge and returns the body of his mother to Lars' homestead, where she is buried alongside Cliegg's brother and parents.
