From the Greek word "galēnē," meaning "calm" or "serene". Galen Marek was an apprentice of Darth Vader and was sent by Vader to assassinate Jedi opponents. In time he learned of his true name and family history, turned from the Empire, and regained his identity as a Jedi. He defeated Vader in a massive duel, then sacrificed his life to save his companions, becoming an inspiration for the Rebellion.
