History

Leia's family consisted of many influential individuals, primarily government officials and politicians. Leia Organa is the daughter and slightly younger (by just a few seconds) of the fraternal twins of the Jedi Knight Anakin Skywalker and his secret wife, Queen and Senator Padmé Amidala, the adopted daughter of Queen (and later Minister of Education) Breha Organa and her husband, Viceroy/Prince Consort Bail Organa of Alderaan, and the twin sister of Luke Skywalker (which is not revealed unambiguously until Return of the Jedi.) A politician turned rebel and spy, she has a forceful personality and keen intellect, having accomplished much in her youth. Leia was a member of the Imperial Senate until Emperor Palpatine dissolved it. She then became a leader of the Rebel Alliance and, many years later, Chief of State of the New Republic).

Leia's first chronological depiction was in Revenge of the Sith, when Padmé Amidala gives birth to her and her twin brother at Polis Massa. Before Padmé dies while being comforted by Obi-Wan Kenobi, Leia looks at her and gains a faint memory of her mother. She tells her older twin brother that her real mother was very beautiful, kind and gentle, yet sad. Leia is sent to Alderaan with R2-D2 and C-3PO with her adoptive father, Bail Organa, so she would not be found by the Empire. According to the Episode III Visual Dictionary, Leia's full name at birth is Leia Amidala Skywalker. It is unknown if she retained her middle name growing up on Alderaan; however, this is unlikely.

Life as a Rebel

In Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope, Senator Leia Organa is captured by Darth Vader. He accuses her of being a traitor and demands to know the location of the secret technical plans of the Death Star, the Empire's newest and most powerful weapon. Unknown to him, the young senator has hidden the plans inside an Astromech droid, R2-D2, and has sent it to find the legendary Jedi Master, Obi-Wan Kenobi, on the nearby planet of Tatooine. Later, Vader has her tortured, but she resists telling him anything. Still believing she could be useful, Grand Moff Tarkin, Commander of the Death Star, threatens to destroy her homeworld with the superweapon unless she reveals the location of the hidden Rebel base. She still does not give in and lies to them, as Tarkin ordered Alderaan to be destroyed anyway. Expecting to be terminated, the brave princess does not give up hope and is finally rescued by unlikely heroes: Luke Skywalker, Obi-Wan Kenobi, the cocky smuggler Han Solo, the Wookiee Chewbacca, and the two droids, R2-D2 and C-3PO. When they finally escape, at the expense of Obi-wan's life, they take part in the Battle of Yavin. Luke, in his one-man X-wing fighter, blows up the Empire's most dreaded weapon. In the Massassi Temple at the hidden Rebel base on Yavin 4, the radiant Princess Leia Organa presents the Alderaanian Medal of Freedom to her rescuers and the heroes of the battle.

The Empire Strikes Back

Three years later, in Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back, Princess Leia helps with the evacuation of the rebel base on Hoth, an ice planet. Despite the ongoing battle, she remains vigilant and issues commands from the crumbling base. Luckily, she is able to escape any danger and flees with C-3PO, Han and Chewbacca on the Millennium Falcon. Although they are pursued by Imperial fighters, they manage to dodge their fire by flying into an asteroid field when the hyperdrive broke down. Although the Princess is constantly at odds with Han, romance blossoms; while hiding in a cave (actually the mouth of a space slug), she shares her first kiss with the scruffy-looking Corellian smuggler. Later, when they stop at Bespin for repairs, Han's friend, Lando Calrissian, betrays them to Vader, who uses them as bait for Luke. Han is also used as a test subject for the carbon freezing chamber meant for Luke, and it is there Leia finally confesses her love for Han. Vader then gives the frozen Han to bounty hunter Boba Fett to give to Jabba the Hutt, to whom Han owes a large debt. Later, Lando helps the Princess, Chewbacca and the two droids escape. While escaping, she senses that Luke is in trouble and makes them go back for him.

Return of the Jedi

Six months after Han is kidnapped, Leia, Chewbacca, Calrissian, Luke (now nearly a Jedi Knight), and the droids go to Tatooine to try to rescue him from Jabba the Hutt. Leia, posing as an Ubese bounty hunter called Boussh, pretends to turn Chewbacca in to Jabba, in order to infiltrate the Hutt's stronghold and free Han. Unfortunately, Leia is discovered by Jabba and his cronies just as she has freed Han from his frozen imprisonment. As punishment, Jabba forces Leia to become his newest slave girl (dressed in a gold bikini), while Luke and Han are sentenced to be fed to a Sarlacc pit creature. Luke and Calrissian overpower Jabba's guards at the last minute, it is at this moment of confusion and infuriation that Leia acts. She slips through Jabba's grip by destroying a control panel that operates the window shafts, with the added darkness, Leia then escapes; Although she is not finished yet.

On board the battle station, Emperor Palpatine goads Luke into fighting Vader, intent on making the young Jedi his new apprentice. Luke initially resists, but loses control when Vader telepathically probes his mind, learns of Leia's existence, and threatens to convert her to the dark side of the Force. Enraged, Luke nearly kills Vader — until he realizes, at the last second, that doing so would doom him to his father's fate. He rejects Palpatine, who attacks him with Force lightning. Vader then turns against and kills his master, and is mortally wounded in the process. In his dying breaths, the redeemed Anakin Skywalker pleads with Luke to tell Leia that there was still good in him after all.

The Truce at Bakura

Immediately after the Battle of Endor, the Rebel Alliance received a long-range messenger droid from Bakura, which was under invasion by the Ssi-ruuk. As Bakura was a well-armed system, which despite its remoteness produced important war-material (such as repulsorlift cells) the battered Alliance decided to dispatch a task force to add the Bakurans; Leia and Luke were both assigned, for their diplomatic and martial skills respectively. The remaining Imperial forces gathered at Bakura gratefully received the aid once the events of Endor were made known to them, and a truce between the Imperials and the Rebels was signed.

After a near-disastrous courtship, described in The Courtship of Princess Leia, in which Prince Isolder vied with Han Solo for Leia's affections, ending with Solo kidnapping Leia and taking her to a planet he had won in a game of sabacc named Dathomir. There they encountered the Nightsisters of Dathomir, whose attempt to escape eventually led to the demise of the Warlord Zsinj and his empire, equal rival at this time to both the Imperial Remnant and the New Republic. Organa married Han Solo in 8 ABY. At first, she did not want to have children, as she feared they would succumb to the Dark side like Darth Vader. While on a mission to Tatooine to retrieve Killik Twilight and the Comcast key hidden within it, Leia had discovered her grandmother Shmi Skywalker's diary and, with the help of her father's childhood friends Kitster and Wald, discovered her father wasn't the evil monster she thought he was and learned to forgive him.

A year later during the Thrawn Crisis, Grand Admiral Thrawn, who had formed an alliance with Joruus C'Baoth, ordered Noghri commandos to kidnap the pregnant Organa Solo. C'Baoth intended to warp Leia and Luke to the Dark side, and was especially avaricious of the two unborn twins as he was cognizant of their great promise and minimal resistance to being molded to his whims. To avoid capture she hid on the planet Kashyyyk, but her would-be kidnappers tracked her. She later learned that the Darth Vader once landed on the Noghri home-planet Honoghr and tricked the Noghri into serving the Empire by promising to help their planet recover from the ecological disaster that it suffered during the Clone Wars. Because of this, they were fiercely loyal to Vader. Organa Solo was able to leverage her biological relationship (and more specifically, the pheromones consequent thereon) to Vader to persuade a Noghri assassin to travel with her to Honoghr and help convince the Noghri of the Empire's deception. Leia showed an assembly of Noghri matriarchs that the droids which the Empire demanded so much for were actively poisoning the land and slowing down the reconstruction. They left the service of the Empire, after one of their assassins (and Thrawn's personal bodyguard), Rukh, slew Thrawn during the Battle of Bilbringi and became allies of New Republic (although whether the assassination actually occurred due to Noghri outrage at the deception and exploitation, or, like many other prominent Imperials who died or disappeared mysteriously at this time, it was at the instigation of the Emperor Reborn). Organa Solo was known as the "Lady Vader" among the Noghri and she and her family became revered figures in their society.

Dark Empire

During the events of Dark Empire, the New Republic suffered severe setbacks, not merely losing most of its worlds and Coruscant, but also Luke Skywalker to the Dark side. But Leia, after his capture on Coruscant, and transport to Byss, and corruption by the Emperor, was the one who boarded the Emperor's Eclipse-class Super Star Destroyer during its assault on the Pinnacle Moon of Da Soocha. It was she who appealed to the goodness inside Luke, redeeming him, and she who assaulted Palpatine with the Light side of the Force, cutting him off from the Dark side and control of the titanic Force-storm he had exerted himself to the utmost to conjure, intending to utterly obliterate the Rebel Alliance fleet. The end result was the complete destruction of the Eclipse I and Palpatine. After this victory, and after Operation Shadow Hand continued despite the Emperor's second death, the Rebel Alliance continued to flee. Her second son, born in 10 ABY on a space station-turned-into-Alliance-base in orbit around Nespis VIII, was given the name Anakin in honor of his grandfather. (See Solo family.) Even this respite proved to be short, as the Emperor was reborn again, in his last remaining clone body. But it was quickly deteriorating, thanks to sabotage by Carnor Jax and one of the Emperor's Hands. Leia was forced to flee to Onderon to hide Anakin Solo from his avaricious grasp; horrifyingly, the Emperor intended to inject his spirit into the young infant. The Emperor did eventually find her, but he was shot in the back by Han Solo. A sacrifice by a dying Empatojayos Brand saved Anakin and her from Palpatine's spirit.
