Helloe everyone, I'm very glad that I managed to find this thread, seeing as I've always wanted extra info on the handmaidens. They had very small roles in the movies and that made me wonder what kind of people they were, what personality traits they had... Right now, I'm seeking info on the youngest one, Yane. She is one of the main characters in one of my fics and, seeing as the movies only showed brief glimpses of her, I've had to build her personality and appearance from scratch. The action in the story takes place, during ROTS, thirteen years after the Battle of Naboo. In this story, Yane renounced her position as Handmaiden after Queen Amidala stepped off the Naboo throne. Her father wanted her to continue her service at the Royal Palace, or get involved in politics, but Yane firmly refused. Instead, she joined the Naboo Security Forces, rose through the ranks and was promoted to the rank of Lieutenant-Commander, serving under Captain Panaka. After the Emperor's coup and the beggining of the Jedi Purge, Yane is sent to Naboo as a diplomatic attache to the Imperial Court. However, her unofficial role is to keep an eye on Palpatine's movements and report them back to Naboo. Even though the Naboo are (in theory) loyal to the Emperor, there are many who are weary of Palpatine's intentions. Beeing staunch supporters of democracy, the Naboo people do not like the new regime that now rules the Galaxy. Lacking a strong enough military force (and having learnt a great deal from the Trade Federation occupation), the Naboo do not risk to openly oppose the Emperor. So, they play a hidden game, keeping close tabs on the Imperial Court and reporting their findings to the fledgling resistance movement, that would one day become the Rebellion. Physically speaking, I've made Yane to be of average heigth, with shoulder-length brown/black hair and dark eyes. She is a fairly good shot with a blaster, but her main area of expertise, when it comes to fighting is hand-to-hand combat. Psychologically, she is a very determined person, who sets her goals and always strives to accomplish them. She is somewhat aloof, more of a quiet loner than a social butterfly. She has a pretty sharp tongue and an ironic sense of humor. Though usually a calm person, Yane sometimes loses her temper, but ends up bringing herself under control fairly quickly. Her flaws are the fact that she often fails to emphatize with other people, usually resulting in the fact that she ends up not understanding their motivations. Also, she is somewhat resentful, making it very hard for someone who has done something wrong to get back on her good side. Well, that's all that I can think about at the moment. What do you think?
