Biography

Cliegg's father was a kind moisture farmer on Tatooine,[3] but the young Cliegg rebelled against the elder Lars and left Tatooine for the Core World of Ator. He married a young woman named Aika, and they had a son, Owen.[3]

Aika died during Owen's youth, and a devastated Cliegg returned to Tatooine with his son, made amends with his father, and took over the family farm. He purchased the slave Shmi Skywalker from Watto and subsequently freed and married her. [3] Shmi often told her new family how much she missed her son, Anakin, who had been freed by a Jedi to join the Jedi Order years before.

Years later, he was visited on Tatooine by Anakin and Padmé Amidala, and told them that Shmi had been abducted by Tusken Raiders. Cliegg and 29 other settlers attempted to rescue her, but 26 of the settlers were killed and Cliegg lost his right leg from the midthigh down, due to a trap laid by the Tusken Raiders. This forced him to use a power chair in order to move around.

Anakin set off to rescue her, and eventually brought Shmi's body back to the Lars homestead, where she was buried alongside Cliegg's brother and parents.

Cliegg died shortly thereafter from his injury and a broken heart, leaving Owen and Beru to watch over the Lars homestead.[2]
