I presume you were talking about this piece:




I've actually wondered if somehow Sidious had manipulated events on Tatooine so that Shmi would be abducted and held by the Tusken Raiders.  He was certainly powerful.  And we've even been led to believe that Sidious may have even manipulated the midichlorians to conceive Anakin.  If that's the case it doesn't seem out of the question for Sidious to have set events in motion on Tatooine.

I can't remember where I saw this (maybe the AoTC novel), but I want to say I saw somewhere that the Tuskens would abduct "humans" and torture them to test the limits of human pain, toughness, ect.

Decided to dust off this forum with an item I can really only discuss here, because no one else will listen.

I was looking at THIS SIDESHOW PIECE tonight and started to contemplate the following:

Why would the Tuskens abduct Shmi and then hold her captive for  "a month"?  Did they plan to ransom her? Sell her to slavers? With the condition Anakin found her in, it didn't look like they were using her for any purpose of their own.

Or...

Did Sidious arrange for Shmi to be abducted, in order to draw Anakin into a situation where he'd disregard his Jedi values?
