Cliegg Lars is an NPC, the father of Owen Lars on Tatooine. Anakin contacted him and told him to buy Anakin's mother, Shmi from Watto and then buy her freedom. When Cliegg refused, Anakin had Cliegg's leg cut off. Cliegg then bought Shmi and purchased her freedom. They fell in love and were married.
Silence of the Clones Edit
Anakin, Padme Amidala, and R2-D2 reached the Lars moisture farm. Since all the sand there was bad for R2, he was told to wait for them at the ship. Padme and Anakin were greeted by C-3PO. She told them there should be a ball in their honor. At the farm, they all met Owen Lars, his girlfriend Beru, and Owen's father Cliegg, who was missing a leg. Cliegg invited them all to lunch to tell them about Shmi. He had bought Shmi from Watto, but he and Shmi fell in love and got married, making him Anakin's stepfather. Anakin was furious and demanded to know where Shmi was. Cliegg told him that Shmi ran off into the desert, afraid of Anakin and what Anakin may become. He told Anakin it wasn't safe to go out in the desert because of the Sand People. He revealed that the Sand People used to be a peaceful race. Then ten years ago they somehow aqcuired blasters and began firing at pod racers. Ever since, they'd descended into barbarism, terrorising the desert while ranting about a broken promise. Cliegg feared Shmi might be dead. Anakin refused to believe this, and went out into the desert alone to find Shmi.
On Tatooine, Anakin had returned to the Lars farm with Shmi's body, whom he'd found alive, but who then died without telling him that she loved him. He confided in Padme, lamenting the fact that with all his power in the Force, he couldn't make people love him. Padme told him that she loved him.
A funeral was held for Shmi. R2 left the ship to tell the others about Obi-Wan's message of the Trade Federation/Separatist plot to overthrow the Republic. R2 used C-3PO to translate that he had a message from Obi-Wan. Anakin told Padme to patch the message through to the Jedi Council so that they'd all hear it simultaneously.
This is the last that Cliegg Lars has been seen or mentioned in any of the campaigns. There was no sign or mention of him three years later when Obi-Wan left Adam Lars/Luke Amidala/Luke Starkiller to be raised by Owen and Beru Lars. His current fate, and whether he's still alive in the Darths&Droids universe is unrevealed (according to the Star Wars Expanded Universe, he died soon after Shmi did).
