"Help me Obi-Wan Kenobi. You're my only hope."
- Princess Leia, Star Wars - Episode IV: A New Hope

Princess Leia Organa made her film debut in 1977. In the time since, she discovered she was actually a Skywalker - Luke's twin sister and the daughter of Darth Vader - married Han Solo, had at least one child (depending on which canon you're reading), lead the rebellion to numerous victories, and even earned a rare spot as a Disney princess.

As an infant, Leia was adopted by Bail Organa, a politician and a member of the royal family of Alderaan. Leia was thus raised as a princess, trained in diplomacy, and groomed for a career in galactic politics. She would become a member of the Imperial Senate.

By her teens, Princess Leia was already leading secret missions on behalf of the Rebellion. When captured by the Empire, she courageously endured torture and the tragedy of seeing her homeworld, Alderaan, destroyed. Her courage didn't end there - at various times, she's taken on Imperial troops, vile gangsters, alien creatures, and even survived the cold of outer space for a time with the help of the Force.
