Anakin Solo was a Human male Allied colonel who was the third child of Han Solo and Leia Organa Solo and the younger brother of Jaina and Jacen Solo. Named after his maternal grandfather, Anakin Skywalker, as a child Anakin often feared succumbing to the allure of the dark side and becoming a Sith himself. At the age of eleven, he attended the Jedi Praxeum on Yavin 4, where he became fast friends with Tahiri Veila. Together, they enjoyed numerous adventures, which included freeing the imprisoned souls of Massassi children. Anakin was one of the pivotal figures in the Third War, participating in several of the major battles and developing effective tactics against the TransRace Empire.
