Padmé Amidala Naberrie Skywalker, also known as Padmé Naberrie, Padmé Amidala, Her Royal Highness, Queen Amidala of Naboo, Her Excellency, or Senator Padmé Amidala of Naboo, was the younger daughter of Ruwee and Jobal Naberrie, and the younger sister of Sola Naberrie, making her the aunt of Ryoo and Pooja Naberrie. She was the mother of Leia and Luke Skywalker, and the secret wife of Anakin Skywalker, a Jedi Knight who had fallen to the dark side and became the Sith Lord "Darth Vader".


Birth of the First Galactic Empire[]


After dying from her complications, Padmé was given a funeral when her body was brought to Naboo. Her death was mourned by many people during the funeral as her casket drawn through the streets of Theed. The japor snippet that Skywalker had given to her thirteen years ago rested in her hands.

Padmé's death would haunt Vader for the rest of his life during his reign as a Dark Lord of the Sith. Despite becoming the evil being he had become in his heart and continuing to eradicate all the Jedi, he could not let go of the agony caused by his wife's passing, and the guilt of knowing he was responsible for her death.



Padmé and her husband appear to their son.

In 4 ABY, following the Empire's defeat, a celebration on Endor was hosted by the Rebels for their success in destroying the second Death Star. During the celebration, Padmé, having learned the ability to interact with the living due to being Force attuned, appeared as a spirit of the Force after reuniting with her husband Anakin, who had returned to the light side. Alongside her husband, Obi-Wan Kenobi, and Grand Master Yoda, she watched proudly as her children prepared for their ultimate future that was ahead.

Powers and Abilities[]

As a queen and senator of Naboo, Padmé was extremely skilled in utilizing blaster pistols and blaster rifles. She is a highly skilled tactician and very a capable leader. She is also highly skilled in diplomacy and negotiation. While growing up, Padmé had been unaware of her connection to the Force, for which she was Force-Attunned. She was able to sense through the Force of her husband's agony moments before he turned to the dark side. Just before her death, she was able to feel and go through the torture of Anakin's immolation by the dark side. Years after her death, Padmé had completed her training in the Netherworld of the Force where she learned the ability to interact with the living as a spirit of the Force due to her selflessness and complete lack of fear.
