On the Edge of the Empire
Former Senator from Alderaan; Commander in the Rebel Alliance
Princess Leia Organa was a representative for Alderaan in the Galacic Imperial Senate and daughter of Bail Organa. After Darth Vader declared her family traitors to the Empire, she and several other Organas fled and officially joined the Rebel Alliance against the Galactic Empire. As retribution for this act, the Empire destroyed Alderaan with the devastating power of the Death Star.
Leia Organa has been a vital member of the Rebel Alliance, continually proving herself worthy of the Commander rank. She is often accompanied by her family’s faithful droids, an astromech identified as R2-D2 and a protocol droid identified as C-3P0.
