These custom-made figures are part of a medieval Star Wars set, by Sillof. Essentially, he created an alternate, medieval, universe for Star Wars and gave each character a background that fit this realm.
You are told as much with the first words of the movie with a line straight out of a fairy tale “A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away”. A classic story of good verses evil where the young hero who has to rescue the princess with the help of the trusty old knight.
More after the jump!
Princess Lilani is the daughter of a former king of the realm. She has been kidnapped by the evil lord Deth Valkor and held his his mountain fortress as a bargain chips to make the lords of the land recognize his claim to the throne.
Obiwoth Kindorn used to serve the true king of the realm but following his perceived failure to protect the king and rise of Deth Valkor as the new ruler of the realm he has fled into a self-imposed exile. There he stayed until he found young Lukos and took him on as his squire and the 2 set off to rescue the fair princess Lilani.
Deth Valkor, was once know as Anagoth Swordbearer the defender of the realm and greatest knight in kings guard. He murdered and betrayed the king and seized his lands.
Lukos Swordbearer was raised on a farm by his relatives never knowing what happed to his real family. He was never treated as well as the actual sons. At the first chance his relatives bound him in servitude to a crazy old knight to serve as lowly squire. All he has from his original family was his fathers enormous sword which was given to him by the knight. He carries it on his back like burdensome yolk that reminds him of his loss.
