Description: Sach√É¬©, born Sashah Adova, was a female human who served as one of the handmaidens of Amidala, Queen of Naboo. During the Invasion of Naboo, Sach√É¬© and Yan√É¬© remained behind as her sovereign and the other handmaidens fled Naboo with Jedi Master Qui-Gon Jinn and his Padawan, Obi-Wan Kenobi. Whilst she remained on Naboo, Sach√É¬© carried messages for a resistance group until she was caught by droids and subject to interrogation by the Trade Federation, which resulted in a large collection of scars around her neck, body and arms. During the interrogation, Sach√É¬© saved the lives of members of the Royal Naboo Security Forces by refusing to name them.
The Royal Security Forces repaid Sach√É¬©'s bravery with loyalty second only to Amidala and, after she announced her intention to run for a seat in the planetary legislative assembly, it was done with their full support. In 28 BBY, the same year Amidala's term as queen ended, Sach√É¬© was accepted into the assembly.
Sach√É¬© became an infuential member of Queen R√É¬©illata's government and, when Governor Sio Bibble finally retired following Amidala's death in 19 BBY, Sach√É¬© was the favorite to succeed him. However, under self-proclaimed Galactic Emperor Sheev Palpatine's decree, the election was suspended and a new position was created to oversee the daily operations of the Naboo government, a position granted to former Captain Quarsh Panaka, the man who trained Amidala, Sach√É¬© and the handmaidens for their security arrangement.
Sashah Adova, a human female, was born on the planet Naboo in the year 44 BBY. When she was twelve years old in 32 BBY, she was recruited by Captain Quarsh Panaka of the Royal Naboo Security Forces to serve as one of the handmaidens for newly-elected Queen Padm√É¬© Amidala.
Panaka first encountered Adova at an acting workshop he visited during his search for qualified handmaidens. After he quite literally tripped over Adova hiding in an alcove, he became intrigued by both her and her advice on one of the other girls at the workshop, Eirtama Ballory. He later surmised that she had tripped him on purpose in order to sneakily convince him that she was right for the job, which she had wanted all along. Along with Ballory, Rabene Tonsort, and Suyan Higin, Adova was introduced to Amidala at the end of her second week on the throne. Panaka introduced Adova last, unsure how to explain his reasoning that the girl, who was younger than the Queen and all the other candidates, was qualified. Amidala subsequently brought the girls to her apartment in the Theed Royal Palace to speak with them privately, alongside her first handmaiden Tsabin.
There, Amidala and her new handmaidens discussed the details of their new positions, and what Amidala hoped for from them. Adova explained to Amidala that Panaka thought the girls would work for him directly as an extension of the Royal Security Forces, not understanding the Queen's wishes, and that he had something on Tonsort √Ę‚ā¨‚ÄĚ her past as an art forger √Ę‚ā¨‚ÄĚ that he thought he could use to control her. After further discussion, Adova suggested that the girls could be Amidala's shadow. Tonsort, noting her slight notoriety, suggested that the handmaidens all take new names that matched Amidala's given one, as well. When Ballory was hesitant, Adova noted that if she had wanted to become famous under her real name, the position of handmaiden was not for her, which led Ballory to acquiesce to the idea. Adova, noting her position as the youngest of the handmaidens and the least likely to be called on as Amidala's stand-in, volunteered to be the Queen's page. When Tonsort suggested that the disguised Amidala should also be a page, Adova also volunteered to help ease a reluctant Panaka into the idea. When it came time to pick her new name, she dubbed herself Sach√É¬©.
Invasion of Naboo
Early in Amidala's reign, Naboo was invaded by the Trade Federation. Amidala and Tsabin, now known as Sab√É¬©, switched places as the invasion forces closed in on Theed. Sach√É¬© did the elder handmaiden's hair as part of the deception. When Amidala, her handmaidens and her guards were rescued from the battle droids that had captured them by the Jedi Qui-Gon Jinn and Obi-Wan Kenobi, Sach√É¬© and Higin √Ę‚ā¨‚ÄĚ now Yan√É¬© √Ę‚ā¨‚ÄĚ stayed behind on Naboo with elements of the Royal Security Forces that led a resistance against the occupation as Amidala and company escaped to Coruscant to rally assistance.
During the occupation, Sach√É¬© helped the resistance maintain coded communications. Early on, she and Yan√É¬© managed to pass a coded message to the queen. She asked Bibble to tell Amidala that, "the death toll is catastrophic"; the word "toll" was a pre-arranged alert word, which would let Amidala know that one of the handmaidens left behind on Naboo was still alive and that she could concentrate on her own mission. Satisfied that Sach√É¬©'s feigned terror would tug at the queen's heartstrings, Gunray agreed that the message would be sent. Sach√É¬© also carried messages around the prison camp. She was eventually captured by the droid forces and tortured for information, but she held out and refused to name any Royal Security Forces members, such as Mariek Panaka. Amidala eventually returned to Naboo with the Jedi, upon which Sach√É¬© and Yan√É¬© were reunited with her and the other handmaidens. The regrouped royal party travelled to the swamps to enlist the aid of the Gungans in driving the Trade Federation out.
Life after being a handmaiden
When Queen Amidala stepped down, Sach√É¬© ran for a seat in the Planetary Legislative Assembly and won. She moved into the house that Yan√É¬© bought and worked closely with Sio Bibble, who was a friend and mentor to her. She also stayed in touch with Padm√É¬© and the other handmaidens. Some time after Padm√É¬© became a Senator, Sach√É¬© invited her and all of the handmaidens to a dinner party she hosted in the southwest hall in the Naboo royal palace. Only Yan√É¬© was unable to attend, as she was home taking care of the twins she was fostering.
Sach√É¬© walked with the other surviving handmaidens in the procession at Padm√É¬©'s funeral. Shortly before or around that time, Sio Bibble stepped down as governor. Sach√É¬© had been a favorite to win the election for the next governor of Naboo, but the Empire instead installed Quarsh Panaka in the new position of Moff.
Personality and traits
Sach√É¬© was a human female native from Naboo. She had brown hair, brown eyes, and fair skin. Sach√É¬©'s role in the handmaidens' work as a security and intelligence team was to spy in plain sight, and to serve as a distraction while the others got up to trouble behind her. She often played up people's perception of her as small, young, or meek to gain an advantage. People talked around her; either they overlooked her, or they viewed her as the easiest of Amidala's handmaidens to talk to. Sach√É¬© was also unusually observant. She was the only person to figure out what Panaka was doing when he was recruiting handmaidens for the queen, and gave him advice that helped push him into recruiting Ballory. In addition to her skills at information gathering, she was the second best shot among the handmaidens, after Sab√É¬©.
As a result of her torture at the hands of the Trade Federation occupying forces after her capture, her body was covered with scars that she usually concealed under clothing. Sach√É¬© was considered very brave for withstanding torture without revealing information that would have jeopardized the Naboo resistance. Because of this, she was also hailed as a Hero of Naboo, which helped her win her election to the Planetary Legislative Assembly.
Sach√É¬© had a tendency to "get quiet," as she put it, from time to time. She preferred to keep her feelings to herself and often had trouble articulating them. This sometimes caused interpersonal trouble; during the early days of her time as handmaiden, Sach√É¬© did not want to share a room with Yan√É¬©, and her inflexibility on the subject, accompanied by a refusal to explain why, became the center of one of the handmaidens' first arguments as a group.
