He had more than a few scars, really though most people only noticed the one over his eye. It made for an exciting story, about how the Sith-apprentice Ventress had given it to them during their lightsaber duel on Coruscant.
But he never told that story. Not unless he had to. He'd talk about starfighter battles over planets near and far, of near brushes with death, and of his exploits as a human child podracer. But not about the scar over his eye.
The holocasters liked to refer to it as "Skywalker's badge of honor", of proof of how heroic he must be, hinting at a story behind it even more heart-poundingly intense than the one that was real. He never corrected them. On any of it. Instead, he did his duty and ignored them, for the most part.
He didn't talk about the mostly-faded ones either, from podracing accidents or the few people who'd thought they had license to be rough with him because he was only a slave even if he'd also been a child. Of course, only Padme saw those and she? She didn't need to ask.
