Ah, Leia Organa. For many of us she was a first: first crush, first heroine, the first one we wanted to be in our imaginary Star Wars battles as we played with our friends growing up, the one we wanted to fall in love with over and over again with her whip-like wit, devilishly cute smile and absolute bravery in the face of impossible odds. I have always been a sucker for a strong female lead, and Leia Organa has always been at the pinnacle of that honoured mountain, with many new characters in the Star Wars Universe joining her over the last couple years. That is why, when Leia was a part of the Awakenings set, I immediately set out to get an elite version of her, and pair her with as many possible female characters as I could. And, as her character is in the films, books and countless side stories we have all grown to love (in old and new canon which our Canon Captain Steve McGillivray has showed us this week), she is a complex card to play with and is not as straightforward as she might seem.

As her text says right under the name on her card, Leia is a “born leader,” as well as being a pivotal figure in the saga. In the unlikely event you haven’t seen the Original Trilogy or The Force Awakens, then be aware that spoilers will follow, as this article looks at Leia’s cinematic journey.
This episode is presented in memory of Carrie Fisher.
