(From a Q&A with Pablo Hidalgo, 2003) “[Leia] has a real image of her father. It’s Bail Organa.”
I really loved this answer for something I hadn’t thought too much of. It’s fairly common to have Leia not thinking of Anakin Skywalker as her father, but it’s something that I appreciate being laid out here all the same–that biology is not the be-all-end-all of family relationships and that it’s about what the character themselves want.
Luke always wanted a father, he daydreamed about it all his life. Leia, on the other hand, was satisfied with her life, and so her real family is the one she lost on Alderaan. But, to be fair, Luke was also on an incredibly boring planet, while Leia lived a much more exciting life, he had much more to yearn for than she did, he felt a pull to the stars in a way that she was already living out.
They were both raised with two loving adults who weren’t their biological parents, but it depended on what the person at the center themselves wanted and how they felt about it, not about this idea that sharing genetic material with someone should always be triumphant over the people who cared for you, who were there day in and day out, who taught you, who played with you, who tucked you into bed, who answered your questions when you had them, who loved you.
It’s one of my favorite things about Star Wars, that whether it’s Leia with the Organas or the adoptions of the Jedi or the found family of the Phoenix crew, that family doesn’t have to be just genetics. Family are the people who care for you and are there for those important moments in your life and are the ones that influence you. Family can be about blood, but it doesn’t have to be, and those families don’t have to be traditional structures (though, those are good, too!) to be real.
