"What I remember about the rise of the Empire is…is how quiet it was."—Anonymous Clone of the 501st


Anakin Skywalker walked up the Temple steps; the only sound reflecting in his ears is the screams of his wife. He knows what he's going to do, but he's doing it for her.

Would she approve? Would she still come back to him if she saw him right now? Probably not.

So it will be a quiet thing. The screams of the Jedi will be unheard, the swing of the lightsabers, silent.

And no one will know it was him.
