Some of us… Well, most of us… we’ve all done terrible things on behalf of the Rebellion. Spies, saboteurs, assassins. Everything I did, I did for the Rebellion. And every time I walked away from something I wanted to forget, I told myself it was for a cause that I believed in. A cause that was worth it. Without that, we’re lost. Everything we’ve done would have been for nothing… I couldn’t face myself if I gave up now. None of us could.
NABOO ROYAL HANDMAIDENS → “The base requirement for handmaidens of course, is a physical resemblance to the Queen. However, a successful candidate must also pass a battery of rigorous tests that try every facet of her personality and skills.
Thirteen handmaidens are on duty in the palace at all times, and five travel with Amidala whenever she leaves Naboo. In addition to serving as bodyguard for Amidala and watching for possible threats to her life, each handmaiden is fully capable of standing in for the Queen should the situation require a decoy.” ♕
