Day 14 of 365; Uncle Owen Lars

Owen Lars was the son of moisture farmer Cliegg Lars and the stepbrother of Anakin Skywalker. He married Beru Whitesun, and after his father's death, he inherited his job as a moisture farmer. In 19 BBY, Beru convinced Owen to adopt Anakin's son, Luke Skywalker, as Anakin had turned to the dark side and became the infamous Darth Vader.

Owen and Beru raised their nephew as well as they could, and Owen instilled into Luke the values of his own childhood. Fearful of Luke's potential, and distrustful of the outside galaxy, Owen attempted to keep Luke isolated and ignorant of his true parentage. This led Luke to be a whiny and pissy teenager, frequently uttering "Uncle Oweeeeen" and "but Uncle Oweeeen"

None of this mattered too much because after R2D2 and C-3PO landed on Tatooine, they led the Empire right to Owen and he was rewarded with his years of love and foster patronage with death by Stormtrooper. Whine about that, Luke.
