Princess Leia Organa
"I'd just as soon kiss a wookie". -Princess Leia, Star Wars.
Known as the most memorable woman in the Star Wars universe, Princess Leia Organa is both driven and dedicated. Being the youngest ever of the Galatic Empire, Leia was also a forceful proponent for the Rebel alliances.
Although Princess Leia is a member of the Royal Family of Alderaan, she has a powerful heritage in the Force. Daughter to the Jedi knight Anakin Skywalker (later Darth Vader) and Senator Padme Amidala of Naboo, she is the younger twin sister of Luke Skywalker. However, shortly after he birth she was adopted by Bail Organa and Queen Breha of Alderaan, thus making her Princess Leia Organa of Alderaan.
As a woman warrior, Leia is skilled in combat, being an excellent sharpshooter and is known for killing villianous characters. In particular, Princess Leia’s finest moment is when she chokes her kidnapper, Jabba the Hut, with her own slave chains that bound her to him.
In popular culture, Princess Leia is best recognised by her ‘doughnut bun hairstyle’. Princess Leia’s strong feminist characterisation has also been seen to influence fashion, as the scene in which she wore her metallic slave girl bikini, was rated as the most memorable in movie history (Empire Magazine). Eventually following in her father’s footsteps, she becomes a Jedi knight with considerable skill with a lightsaber; making her one of the galaxy’s greatest heroines.
" They were in the wrong place at the wrong time. Naturally they became heroes". -Princess Leia, Star Wars.
