Hi everyone, I'm a big fan of Amilyn Holdo from Claudia Gray's book "Leia, Princess of Alderaan", and I've long been wondering about the origins of her peculiar speech patterns aka "Holdo speak", i. e. the way she speaks in cryptic metaphors. In particular, I'm curious whether it is just her personal quirk or something relatively common on Gatalenta. Gatalenta's culture seems to be heavily inspired by Eastern religions and philosophy, and in these religions, it is very common to speak in riddles, proverbs, metaphors, and koans. And though Amilyn, on the surface, wants to be "anti-Gatalenta" in everything, deep down she is very much a Gatalentan: she loves astrology and meditation, and her life philosophy, which she explained to Leia, is about happiness, love, etc. I wonder whether her speech pattern was also an imprint of her culture?
