Padmé Amidala arrived on Mustafar as Anakin told her he was going there to end the Clone Wars. Unbeknownst to her, Obi-Wan stowed aboard her ship to get to him. When Anakin who was now Darth Vader, saw the ship coming he recognised it and went out to meet Padmé.
The Duel Edit
When Obi-Wan exited the ship, Padmé was telling Anakin she loved him but he saw Obi-Wan and yelled "Liar". Believing Padmé to have brought Obi-Wan to him he began force-choking her. Obi-Wan ordered him to let her go to which he reluctantly did.
"You turned her against me!"
"You have done that yourself"
"You will not take her from me!"
"Your anger and your lust for power have already done that"
- Anakin Skywalker and Obi-Wan KenobiWhen Anakin accused Obi-Wan of turning Padmé against him, Obi-Wan replied that Anakin had done that himself and that he had allowed Darth Sidious to twist his mind. Anakin retorted that he saw through the lies of the Jedi and that he didn't fear the dark side. He also said that he had brought peace and freedom to his new empire to which Obi-Wan reacted with disappointment. When Anakin said that if his former master wasn't with him that he must be his enemy, Obi-Wan replied by saying that only a Sith deals in absolutes.
"I will do what I must."
"You will try"
- Obi-Wan and AnakinHe activated his lightsaber and Anakin flipped towards him, activating his and the two blades clashed. After an intense fight on the landing platform, Anakin began to push Obi-Wan back into the Mining Complex. Once inside Anakin grabbed Obi-Wan by the throat and pushed his lightsaber towards his former master's throat. Obi-Wan managed to evade the blade and they resumed their intense duel, anticipating each other's moves. They both suddenly began a force-push at the oponent and both released simultaneously, sending each other backwards. Anakin accidentally hit a control panel which turned off the safety shields around the complex. Now outside, the pair balanced on a thin pipe and then jumped down onto a bridge as they duelled. A huge burst of lava landed on the now unprotected bridge and broke it off the complex. Anakin and Obi-Wan held on while it floated towards a huge drop where the lava river went off a cliff. Obi-Wan leapt onto a hovering platform and watched as Anakin began to fall off the edge with the bridge. Anakin managed to leap onto a mining droid at the last second and they resumed their fight as he brought the droid next to Obi-Wan's platform. Obi-Wan told Anakin that he had failed him and Anakin replied that he should have known the Jedi were plotting to take over. Obi-Wan stressed that Chancellor Palpatine was evil but Anakin told him from his point of view the Jedi were evil. Obi-Wan realised that Anakin was truly lost and they continued their duel. The droid and the platform passed a couple of Mustafarians and Anakin flipped onto the other side of Obi-Wan's platform as they fought. Finally, Obi-Wan backflipped up onto the rocky ground above the river of lava and told his former apprentice that it was over because he had the high ground. Anakin claimed that Obi-Wan underestimated his power and even though the Jedi warned him not to try it, he leapt up towards his former master, screaming. In one stroke, Obi-Wan cut off both of his legs and one of his arms while he was in mid-air.
Obi-Wan emotionally yelled at Anakin as he lay, smouldering in the molten rock, screaming in pain and left, picking up Anakin's lightsaber as he went. Darth Sidious felt his new apprentice needed his aid and went to Mustafar to find Anakin burnt and without three of his limbs. Sidious and Doctor Cylo had a black suit made up for Vader and he was rebirthed.
For years to come, Vader continued to have visions of the duel. Some of the visions had different outcomes.
