    Does anyone know when Vader becomes aware that Luke exists? In TESB, he and Palps have an exchange about him, but he doesn't seem to be new at that point. And Vader doesn't seem to sense him on the Death Star when battling Obi-wan. Hell, he meets Liea in the opening minutes of ANH, and doesn't know she's his daughter! I don't know if he puts that together before his demise.

    Anyways...anyone?

    Vader finds out about Luke between ANH and ESB, so no, he doesn't know in Rogue One.
    in terms of the new canon, he finds out in Star Wars issue No. 6 of the Marvel series, which occurs after ANH.

    Also, Darth Vader #6.

    That is when Palpatine told him, but according to the new canon, Vader already knows and is pissed because Palps lied to him.

    I just got finished watching ESB. Everything as far as the skywalker story goes unfolds. Vader knows about Luke, Luke finds out Vader is Anakin, and Luke awakens Leia from the force. What only gets me is that if the emperor knew about Luke but why not Leia. I just took it as that Leia wasnt aware of her force abilities til the end of ESB. so Lukes training and emotions made an easier connection for Vader and the Emperor. Also, Vader is still mix with emotions cause when he finds out about Luke the emperor wants to kill him but he wants to persuade Luke to join the empire. So Vader has this plan to over take the emperor, just like LoTS when he thinks about the emperor dying.

    I really think it was more easy for the Emperor to discover Luke's identity because he had something to go on. While Leia was truly anonymous being renamed ''Organa'' it seems that Owen and Beru were not too bright and instead of renaming the boy's last name, they went on and left the ''Skywalker'' which was a big mistake. I can imagine that once the word got out that it was a dude named Skywalker who destroyed the Death Star, Palps would investigate this further and it was easy for him to put things together as he was already looking for a connection. It would be the same as if Snoke's last name was Gunk and Kylo Ren heard Rey being called Rey Gunk. Kylo would quickly put one and one together and he would then use the Force to search for a connection. Maybe that's why Vader never senced that Leia was his daughter. People use the Force to search for the connection and not that the Force is like an alarm clock that's going to go off if a relative is close by.

    Agree. Being Force-Sensitive does not mean to be a psychic.

    I guess Owen and Beru tried to keep Luke to live local and don't go away into the galaxy. That's why he might've been told his father was a spice freighter pilot rather than a famous Jedi knight and his mother was not disclosed - and he was royalty on that side too. And since they might have been aware of the dislike Anakin had for Tatooine - the guy hated sand! - so there was no reason he was going to come back to a Outer Rim planet like this one.

    Well also I'm pretty sure there are other Skywalkers in the galaxy if there's a Shmi Skywalker...also The Lars Family weren't exactly celebrities and lived in the middle of nowhere, relatively speaking...Anakin actually came back to Tattooine but I believe it was after his initial meeting with Luke.

    I haven't read the comics so not sure if this is expressed in there, but wouldn't the fact that only one pregnancy is known about, but not the "twin's" factor also be a point of obscurity for Vader with Leia? Just a thought.

    He tried to find out more - even sent people to Naboo to find Padme's doctor - but he knows only about Luke. And I think that is how it's going to stay. He was surprised at the end of RotJ when he read Luke's mind.

    When he was told by Boba Fett that the name of the boy who shot the Death Star was Skywalker, he realised Luke was his son. As Padme supposedly was buried with a visible pregnancy, he sent someone - Dr. Aphra - to investigate with the Naboo mortician who prepared Padme. They found out she was not pregnant when buried and the mortician mentioned - when interrogated about the boy - that he was taken away. Thus he didn't confirm there were twins or only one baby, he just confirmed what he was being asked. We don't know if he actually knew about Leia or not.

    And yes, Vader found out until he read Luke's mind. Vader previously faced Leia after knowing Luke was his son - so far, Vrogas Vas (Vader Down series) and Bespin - but there was no indication he knew about her being his daughter - again, being FS does not mean you are a psychic lol.
