Mara Jade Skywalker

Jumping into Star Wars Legends, Mara Jade was first introduced as The Emperor's Hand, a covert agent assigned to take on the Empire's most secret assignments who answered directly to the Emperor. Mara Jade first met Luke as an adversary being ordered to kill him by the Emperor. However, the two of them would eventually fall in love and get married after having worked both together and against one another at various points for several years. Mara Jade and Luke would go on to have a son, continuing the Skywalker family. 

Ben Skywalker

Ben Skywalker was the son of Luke and Mara Jade, making him the grandson of Anakin Skywalker. When the Legends line of stories ended, Ben was the couple's only child and likely going to be the only child. Because of this, we have to presume that Ben had at least one child at one point because we know of descendants of Luke who would have had to go through Ben. 

Luuke Skywalker

Luuke (note the extra "u") was a genetic clone of Luke Skywalker, grown from cells taken from the hand Luke lost during his duel with Darth Vader on Cloud City. Luuke was created by Joruus C'baoth, who also gave the clone Jedi training, preparing him to face Luke one day. Technically, Darth Vader has also been cloned at least once, though that clone was always referred to as a clone of Vader and was never referred to by the name Skywalker, which is why Luuke Skywalker makes this list but the other clone doesn't.

Cade Skywalker

In 2006, a new comic series called Star Wars: Legacy was launched. The series took place over a hundred years after the events of the original trilogy and was centered around a character named Cade Skywalker, a direct descendant of Luke. Cade is proof that the Skywalker line extended past Ben Skywalker, though we don't know how. 

Kol Skywalker

Kol Skywalker is the father of Cade Skywalker. He appeared in the first issue of Star Wars: Legacy and was also in several flashback sequences throughout the series. Kol is Cade's father, making him the closest known descendant of Ben Skywalker on the timeline. It is unknown how many Skywalkers existed between Ben and Kol, but we know that some do have to have existed in that missing gap. 

Nat Skywalker

The third Skywalker from the Star Wars: Legacy series is Nat Skywalker, the older brother of Kol Skywalker and Uncle of Cade Skywalker. At one point in the series, Nat leaves the Order and takes on a new identity, that of Bantha Rawk. He eventually adopts some children in the series, but in those cases, the children all take on the name Rawk instead of Skywalker. 

This brings the total number of Skywalkers in both Legends and canon to 11. Did you know all the Skywalkers?
