Bail was amazed by Breha's poise in front of the Alderaanian nobles and Ruling Families. She was undaunted and unimpressed by their long list of ancestral incandescence. She was witty and spontaneous with her family and close circle of friends. She was a breath of fresh air, and the lady he wanted to share his heart and soul with. It broke his heart in myriad ways when they lost their unborn children even before they could bring them to birth but after they had already felt the joy of anticipation and burgeoning love. So when he brought Leia to their home, it filled not just a cosmic need on a galactic scale but something deep and visceral in the both of them. Breha loved Leia as if she had borne her herself. When Vader came on his customary visits of state, Bail had to swallow his understandable apprehension. Breha was composed and courteous and he marvelled at her ability to be so unruffled. "I tell myself that we have nothing to hide and I project that same demeanor outwardly. If the mask slips just a bit, he would get suspicious and everything would be lost." She admitted. "But how do you do it?" He pressed. Breha laughed. "I think of all that's at stake, not just the Rebellion but most importantly, Leia. She's not just some abstract future hope of deliverance. She's ours to love and protect, at all costs." It was things like this, resolve like that, that made Bail realize all over that even though the worlds were fraught with uncertainty his love for Breha was solid ground on which to stand firm against all comers.
