Sabe was a handmaiden of Queen Padme Amidala of Naboo. Shortly after Amidala was elected, her head of security hired Sabe to act not only as a handmaiden but also as a decoy for the queen. She and the other handmaidens trained constantly so as to provide the best defense possible for their queen. Sabe continued to serve Amidala even after her term as queen ended. Following the suspicious circumstances of Amidala’s death, Sabe joined forces with Bail Organa, a friend of Amidala. She took up service in the House of Organa, eventually teaching Princess Leia and her friend Winter skills that would prove invaluable when the two girls served as agents for the Alliance to Restore the Republic.
