Palpatine - Wikipedia
The relationships of Palpatine from the Star Wars universe. When Anakin finally became Darth Vader, Palpatine finally unleashed the final phase of Darth. So it seems confirmed that Palpatine knew and wanted Vader to surpass I actually think life is a lot like Palpatine and Vader's relationship. The Last Jedi left a lot of questions open about Supreme Leader Snoke and his past, which will more than likely be answered in the years to.
He then returns to Naboo, where he befriends the young Anakin, telling the boy that, "We will watch your career with great interest". Episode II — Attack of the ClonesPalpatine exploits constitutional loopholes to remain in office even after the official expiration of his term. Meanwhile, Sidious continues to manipulate events from behind the scenes by having his new Sith apprentice Count Dooku lead a movement of planets in seceding to form the Confederacy of Independent Systems.
With the Separatists secretly building a battle droid army, Palpatine uses the situation to have himself granted emergency powers. Palpatine feigns reluctance to accept this authority, promising to return it to the Senate once the crisis has ended.
His first act is to allow a clone army's creation to counter the Separatist threat; this results in the first battle of the Clone Wars. With the galaxy now at war as Sidious planned, Dooku brings him the secret plans for an ultimate weapon. A duel ensues in which Anakin defeats Dooku. Palpatine urges Anakin to kill the unarmed Dooku; after some hesitance, Anakin kills Dooku in cold blood. Palpatine then escapes with his Jedi rescuers and returns to Coruscant.
By this point, Palpatine has become a virtual dictator, able to take any action in the Senate. He makes Anakin his personal representative on the Jedi Council who deny Anakin's Jedi master's rank and order to spy on the Chancellor. Palpatine tells Anakin the story of a powerful Sith Lord who was able to manipulate life and death but was killed by his own apprentice Palpatine himself.
With three other Jedi masters at his side, Windu attempts to arrest Palpatine, but Palpatine produces a lightsaber from his sleeve and quickly dispatches all but Windu. Palpatine engages Windu in a duel and fires Force lightning at the Jedi master, but Windu deflects the lightning back at its source, deforming Palpatine's face into the gray, wizened visage seen in the original trilogy. Just as Windu is about to dispatch Palpatine, Anakin appears and intervenes on the Sith Lord's behalf, allowing Palpatine to kill Windu with another blast of lightning, throwing Windu out of a window high above Coruscant; Anakin then pledges himself to the dark side as Vader.
Palpatine orders the clone troopers to turn on their Jedi generals through Order 66, while dispatching Vader to kill everyone inside the Jedi Temple and then murder the Separatist leaders on the planet Mustafar. Palpatine declares the Jedi to have committed treason and attempted to assassinate him, then reorganizing the Republic into the Galactic Empire, with himself as Emperor.
In his office, Jedi Master Yoda confronts him and engages the Sith Lord in a lightsaber duel that ends in a stalemate. Sensing more danger, Palpatine travels to Mustafar and finds his new apprentice near death following a duel with Obi-Wan. After returning to Coruscant, he rebuilds Vader's burned, mutilated body with the black armored suit from the original trilogy.
Palpatine is last seen watching the original Death Star's construction, with Vader and Wilhuff Tarkin at his side. The Force AwakensPalpatine's voice can be heard during a vision that the character Rey experiences upon touching Luke Skywalker's Lightsaber, which originally belonged to his father. The Clone Wars and the subsequent animated series set between Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the SithPalpatine continues to serve as Supreme Chancellor while his Sith identity remains behind the scenes via holograms.
Palpatine was voiced by Ian Abercrombie from to his death inand by Tim Curry from to Meanwhile, Palpatine suggests that the Republic ally itself with the Hutts. Jabba places Hutt hyperspace routes at the Republic's disposal.
In season two, Sidious hires bounty hunter Cad Bane to infiltrate the Jedi Temple and steal a holocron. He then takes a valuable Kyber memory crystal that contains the names of thousands of Force-sensitive younglings - the future of the Jedi Order - from around the galaxy. The final stage of the plot: Anakin and Ahsoka again foil the plot, but Bane escapes and all evidence of Sidious' involvement is lost.
In season three, Sidious senses Asajj Ventress becoming far more powerful and orders Dooku to eliminate her, feeling threatened that Dooku was intending to train his assassin to overthrow his own master. Ventress survives and her revenge against Dooku sets off a chain of events including the return of Sidious' former apprentice and Dooku's predecessor - Darth Maul.
In season five, Sidious personally travels to the planet Mandalore to confront Darth Maul after becoming leader of Death Watch, killing Savage Opress before torturing Maul with the intent to make use of his former apprentice. In season six, Sidious goes to lengths to conceal his plan's full nature from the Jedi by silencing Clone Trooper Fives from learning of Order 66, and having Dooku wipe out anything tied to the former Jedi Master's connection to the conspiracy.
He briefly appears offscreen at the end of season two's premiere " The Siege of Lothal " voiced by Sam Witwer. However, Vader tells him that Ahsoka Tano is alive and is now helping the Rebels.
Palpatine sees this as an opportunity to seek out other remaining Jedi such as Obi-Wan Kenobi. Palpatine then orders Vader to dispatch an Inquisitor to hunt down Ahsoka. Palpatine returns physically in season four voiced again by Ian McDiarmid.
In the episodes "Wolves and a Door" and "A World Between Worlds", he appears as a hologram overseeing the excavation of the Lothal Jedi Templewhich contains a portal to a separate dimension of the Force outside of space and time, which Palpatine considers a 'conduit between the living and the dead' and could give him unrivaled power of the Force itself if he can access it.
Shortly after Ezra Bridger reaches through time and space to rescue Ahsoka from being killed by Vader, Palpatine sets up a portal that shows Kanan Jarrus 's final moments. While Ezra wants to reach through the portal and rescue Kanan, Ahsoka dissuades Ezra from it.
Palpatine then reveals himself through the portal and attempts to gain access to the world by shooting fiery Sith energy that can allow him to gain access if the energy can tie down Ezra for long enough. However, Ahsoka and Ezra manage to evade him and both go their separate ways, thus denying Palpatine full power.
Palpatine later returns in the series finale "Family Reunion - and Farewell". In the episode, Ezra, having surrendered himself to Thrawn to protect Lothal, is taken by him to a room containing a reconstructed section of the ruined Jedi Temple and a hologram of Palpatine's pre-disfigurement self from the prequel trilogy.
Palpatine, having acknowledged the threat Ezra faces to the Empire, presents himself as a kindly figure and shows Ezra a vision of his dead parents through a doorway, promising that the youth will be with them if entering it. Ezra is initially mesmerized by Palpatine's promise and goes to enter the door, but finally resists and destroys the reconstructed Jedi Temple and the illusion.
Palpatine's hologram emerges from the rubble, flickering to show his true self, and commands his Royal Guards to kill Ezra, though Ezra manages to defeat them and escape.

Cinder was carried out by the Galactic Empire as a means of devastating several Imperial planets in 4 ABY, only a few weeks following the Battle of Endor. The operation was part of the "Contingency", a plan devised by Emperor Palpatine to ensure that the Empire and its enemies did not outlive him should he perish.
The plan was put into action following the Emperor's death during the Battle of Endor. Legends[ edit ] In Aprilmost of the licensed Star Wars novels and comics produced since the originating film Star Wars were rebranded as Star Wars Legends and declared non-canon to the franchise by Lucasfilm. Chancellor Palpatine in Star Wars: The character's likeness in the series is based on that in The Phantom Menace and Attack of the Clones, and he is voiced by Nick Jameson.
In the first chapter, Palpatine is informed by Obi-Wan Kenobi that the Jedi have discovered that the InterGalactic Banking Clan has established battle droid factories on the planet Muunilinst. Palpatine agrees to send a strike force that includes Anakin Skywalker, and suggests that Anakin be given "special command" of Obi-Wan's fighters. Yoda and Obi-Wan initially speak against the idea, but reluctantly concede. Sidious orders Ventress to track down and kill Anakin. He remarks to Dooku that Ventress is certain to be defeated, but that the point of her mission is to test Anakin.
Grievous breaks through the Chancellor's window and attempts to kidnap him,  leading to a long chase while Palpatine is protected by Jedi Shaak TiRoron Corobb and Foul Moudama.

- According to Ian McDiarmid, Yes.
Following the theatrical release of Revenge of the Sith, Star Wars literature focused on Palpatine's role after the creation of the Empire.
John Ostrander 's comic Star Wars Republic Loyalties chronicles how, shortly after seizing power, Emperor Palpatine sends Darth Vader to assassinate Sagoro Autem, an Imperial captain who plans to defect from the Empire. The Rise of Darth Vader set shortly after Revenge of the Siththe Emperor sends Darth Vader to the planet Murkhana to discover why clone troopers there refused to carry out Order 66 against their Jedi generals.
Palpatine hopes these early missions will teach Vader what it means to be a Sith and crush any remnants of Anakin Skywalker. The eyes of a chimpanzee were superimposed onto the actress's features to make the character more eerie. The Star Wars Databank describes him as "the supreme ruler of the most powerful tyrannical regime the galaxy had ever witnessed"  and Stephen J. Sansweet 's Star Wars Encyclopedia calls him "evil incarnate".
At the end, I add the little bit I can think of offhand about how Sidious thinks of Vader. It is in a paragraph that references the novel, Dark Lord: The Rise of Darth Vader, and there is nothing in the novel about Sidious' relationship with or attitude toward Maul in the book.
The paragraph seems to be mostly an opinion piece. Tomorrow, I will edit the following Wookieepedia Legends entry by removing Maul's name: Though he had nearly left Vader to die back on Mustafar, Sidious held, perhaps, the merest sliver of affection for him that he had never held for Maul or Tyranus I will delete Maul's name because we know that, at least in Legends, which this Wookieepedia article is categorized as, that Darth Sidious did place some type value on Maul.
In Legends novel, Darth Plagueis, Plagueis thinks to himself that Sidious has an "almost filial" relationship with Maul. In the novel, Darth Plagueis, Sidious becomes physically sick when he learns that Maul was killed by Kenobi on Naboo, which we all know now not to have happened.
Darth Sidious became physically sick in another novel, Lockdown, when his master tells him to let Maul die in Cog Hive Seven. Of course the term "value" can be taken literally, and we can say that Sidious placed a monetary value on his apprentice, therefore his apprentice was nothing more than property. This could easily be true and the very closest that Sidious comes to caring about something, but we have what Plagueis thinks about their relationship to help put some type perspective on it.
What constitutes "filial" for a Sith is anyone's question, but I think that is the closest we're going to get to a Dark Lord such as Darth Sidious caring about or liking anyone. Sidious is human, and at least in real life, a human can possibly become physically ill when something happens to someone they care about.
A person, however, can also become physically sick when they lose valuable property. The above are Legends references that I can think of immediately without digging through notes, books, etc, but we have a canon source that may help a little bit: I learned from the mistakes of my forebears. I used those who were not Sith to achieve my aims. Darth Maul was a loss, but Darth Tyranus He was a proton torpedo.
He served his purpose and was gone It seems that Sidious "used" Tyranus to achieve his aims, and possibly we could even infer that Sidious didn't consider Tyranus a Sith if we interpret Sidious' words to be reflective of his exact intent, which I think we can. I'm sure there is argument here, but this reply isn't the place for it. I think this portion provides a nice comparison of how Sidious compared these two apprentices of his.
