《星球大战》正史小说《天行者崛起:扩展版》解释了帕尔帕廷是怎么“复活”的,以及他的“儿子”究竟是怎么来的。相关章节翻译如下:



在巨大的竖井里坠落……坠落……坠落……背叛来得迅猛而激烈,一个人高高在上,穿着黑衣,戴着黑盔,迅速退缩。他的徒弟背叛了他,就像他自己背叛普雷格斯一样……普雷格斯的永生秘密已被他偷走。

在死亡的时刻,普雷格斯行动得不够迅速。但西迪厄斯感知到了学徒心中闪烁的光明,早已准备多年。因此,坠落濒死的皇帝召唤全部的原力黑暗力量将自己的意识推到很远很远的地方,一个他一直在秘密准备的地方。他的身体,一具空壳,早在接触井底前就已经死了。他的意识在一个新身体里苏醒——一个痛苦、临时的身体。

太早了。这个秘密的地方还没被完全准备好。转移并不完美,克隆体还不够。也许普雷格斯笑到了最后。或许他的秘密一直是个秘密。因为帕尔帕廷被困在了一个残破、奄奄一息的躯体里。



西斯永恒教(Sith Eternal)的异教徒们辛苦工作,剪接基因,改善组织,制造非自然的怪物,希望在这些链殖体(strandcast)中,有一个能成功,成为一个有价值的容器。为了给神的意识创造一个摇篮,这些异教徒愿意做任何事,冒任何风险,牺牲任何东西。

无一成功。但他们的努力没有完全白费。

有一个基因链殖体存活了。甚至茁壮成长。一个不完全相同的克隆人。他的“儿子”。但他是一个没用、无能的失败品。帕尔帕廷甚至不愿对如此令人失望的平庸多看一眼。

这个男孩的唯一价值将是通过更自然的方式延续帕尔帕廷的血脉。



英语原文:

Falling...falling...falling...down a massive shaft, the betrayal sharp and stinging, a figure high above, black clad and helmeted and shrinking fast. His very own apprentice had turned against him, the way he himself had turned against Plagueis...whose secret to immortality he had stolen.
Plagueis had not acted fast enough in his own moment of death. But Sidious, sensing the flickering light in his apprentice, had been ready for years. So the falling, dying Emperor called on all the dark power of the Force to thrust his consciousness far, far away, to a secret place he had been preparing. His body was dead, empty vessel, long before it found the bottom of the shaft, and mind jolted to new awareness in a new body - a painful one, a temporary one.
It was too soon. The secret place had not completed its preparations. The transfer was imperfect, and the cloned body wasn't enough. Perhaps Plagueis was having the last laugh after all. Maybe his secret remained secret. Because Palpatine was trapped in a broken, dying form.

The heretics of the Sith Eternal toiled, splicing genes, bolstering tissue, creating unnatural abominations in the hope that one of these strandcasts would succeed and become a worthy receptacle. The heretics would do anything, risk anything, sacrifice anything to create a cradle for their god-consciousness.
Nothing worked. But their efforts were not entirely in vain.
One genetic strandcast lived. Thrived, even. A not-quite-identical clone. His “son”. But he was a useless, powerless failure. Palpatine could not even bear to look upon such disappointing ordinariness.
The boy’s only worth would lay in continuing the bloodline through more natural methods.


所以,帕尔帕廷的“复活”方式是克隆+意识转移,他的“儿子”是他本人“失败的”克隆人。这两点与传说宇宙的设定大同小异:在上世纪九十年代的漫画《黑暗帝国》系列中,帕尔帕廷就以这样的方式“复活”。在上世纪九十年代的小说《绝地王子》(Jedi Prince)系列中,帕尔帕廷有个儿子叫“三目”(Triclops),顾名思义,他有三个眼睛——第三只眼睛位于后脑勺。根据后来的官方补充设定,他是帕尔帕廷操控纤原体(midi-chlorian)后用原力制造的变异人。“三目”是一个和平主义者,因此被父亲视为一个失败的试验品。

另外,小说里提到的“链殖体”先前在《曼达洛人》第一季第7集《清算》(The Reckoning)被提到过。当时丁·贾伦认为“孩子”是个链殖体,但在基因农场里干过活儿的库伊尔表示反对。
