Sabé ( Battle Decoy)

CHARACTER DESCRIPTION

Sabé was a Human female who served as a loyal handmaiden to Queen Padmé Amidala during her reign as Monarch of Naboo. A native of Naboo, Sabé was handpicked by Captain Panaka of the Royal Naboo Security Forces shortly after Amidala’s coronation, due to her strong resemblance to the new Queen. Along with the other handmaidens, Sabé was trained to serve as both an attendant and a bodyguard, and as the most important of her group, she was chosen to be the first in line to take the Queen’s place in times of crisis, as a decoy. Together with Amidala, Sabé perfected her act as Queen, learning to mimic the monarch accurately.

Sabé was required to step into the role during the Invasion of Naboo in 32 BBY. When the Trade Federation subjugated the capital city of Theed, the handmaiden donned one of the Queen’s gowns, while Amidala took Sabé’s role, using concealed gestures and signals to communicate. Before they were taken into Federation custody, Sabé and her “retinue” were rescued by the Jedi Knights Qui-Gon Jinn and Obi-Wan Kenobi. In attempting to flee Naboo in the Queen’s J-type 327 Nubian royal starship, the group was forced to make a detour to Tatooine in order to repair the craft before journeying to Coruscant.
