     Originally a member of the Senate, he rised in ranks until he became Emperor. The Force is so powerful with him that he becomes consumed be the dark side of the force. He grows older the most people, and has to clone a new body every now and then. The the force and his memory enter each body. So this all means that the Emperors we see in the movies are clones. Also it means that when Darth throws him down the center of the death star, he is still alive. Only his clone was killed.
     In one of the clones bodies, me convinces Anakin Skywalker to join the dark side. He saves Anakin's life, by giving him a suit, and life support systems. Anakin needs these because he was badly hurt/almost killed by Obi-Wan.
