25. Luke Skywalker – Illinois
Illinois stands as one of the most diverse states within the United States. Even though it’s known as the “Prairie State,” Illinois is home to major metropolitan cities and rugged regions. Luke Skywalker would surely feel at home in a state like Illinois considering he’s no stranger when it comes to diverse landscapes.
Luke Skywalker was the son of Anakin Skywalker (Darth Vader) and Padmé Amidala, and the twin brother of Leia Organa. After he was taken in by Owen Lars, he lived as a farm boy on Tatooine. Luke always dreamed of a different life and he got that chance when he met Obi-Wan Kenobi. Luke became a vital member of the Rebel Alliance’s fight against the Empire. After helping destroy the Death Star, Luke went and trained as a Jedi with Yoda in Dagobah. Luke later got the chance to confront his father, who then came back to the light side and sacrificed himself for his son.
Later in life, Luke vowed to train young Force users to rebuild the Jedi Order. When he lost his nephew Ben to the dark side, Luke went into hiding. Rey later found him on Ahch-To in the hopes he would train her. Even though he refused to train her, Luke had one more fight in him. He projected himself to Crait to help his sister and the Resistance. On Ahch-To, his body disappeared showing that he became one with the Force.
