He mortally choked Padme and engaged Obi-Wan in combat. During their duel, Obi-Wan kept trying to find a trace of his former apprentice in the monster he had become, but as Vader coldly rebuffed all his pleas and made vicious attempts to murder his former mentor, he eventually accepted that Anakin was gone.

After Obi-Wan dismembered Vader and won the duel, he could not bring himself to murder his defenseless enemy in cold blood, and remorsefully left Vader to be consumed by the fires of Mustafar.

Aftermathwhere the orphaned boy had grown up. Upon meeting Rax, Palpatine offered him a choice; let Palpatine kill him quickly or accept the destiny Palpatine had foreseen for him.

Choosing the latter, Rax became Palpatine's protege and was given the task of guarding the archaeological dig site Palpatine had commissioned there. Before leaving, Palpatine stated that he and Rax would be on a first-name basis with one another, as Palpatine stated that even an emperor must have friends. As such, Gallius Rax had the marked distinction of becoming one of the few if not the only person in the galaxy to truly be considered Palpatine's friend.

He served his purpose and was gone It seems that Sidious "used" Tyranus to achieve his aims, and possibly we could even infer that Sidious didn't consider Tyranus a Sith if we interpret Sidious' words to be reflective of his exact intent, which I think we can. I'm sure there is argument here, but this reply isn't the place for it.
