A LONG TIME AGO, IN A GALAXY FAR, FAR AWAY...
Ladies were still wielding stellar weapons and kicking ass all over the Universe.
George Lucas did a lot of things right and a lot of things wrong, but there is no doubt that every female in his tale is a BAMF.
Here's a collection of the top five biggest BAMFs in the Star Wars series:
1. Leia Organa Solo
Titles: Princess, Politician, Rebel, Jedi Knight
BAMF traits: Forceful personality and sharp intellect, the youngest senator to the Galactic Empire at eighteen, Jedi Knight in New Jedi Order, drove a Corellian Corvette, and put the rambunctious Han Solo in his place!
As the daughter of Jedi Knight Anakin Skywalker and Senator Padme Amidala, and the twin sister of universal hero Luke Skywalker, Leia comes from a family of Bad-asses. Along with Luke and her soon to be husband Han Solo, Leia led the rebel alliance to defeat the Galactic Empire. Don't let the princess title fool you, this BAMF will kiss you, shoot you down, and stomp your heart as she walks over you. Also, if you're a fat, slimy, crime lord, she'll strangle you in a skimpy outfit.
2. Padme Amidala Skywalker
Titles: Queen, Senator, Freedom Fighter, Mother
BAMF Traits: Served two terms as Queen of Naboo before her twenty-first birthday, served as Galactic Senator, wore kickass head dresses and face paint, gave birth to both Luke and Leia Skywalker, and bears an eerie resemblance to Harvard grad Natalie Portman...
At age fourteen, Padme was democratically elected the Queen of Naboo where she fought to liberate her people during the Trade Federations invasion. She soon met Anakin Skywalker and fought the system as a member of the Galactic Senate. She cared about her people so much she used a body double named Sabé to act as queen so she could fight during the Clone Wars. Not to mention she got to run through a field of walking scrotums with Anakin in Episode II. She may be beautiful and seem sweet, but Padme would kick your ass in a second, especially if the safety of Naboo was involved.
3. Adi Gallia
Titles: Jedi Master, Pilot, Warrior
BAMF Traits: Unerring intuition, gifted as a pilot and warrior, an unorthodox reverse one-handed grip when wielding a lightsaber, and...SURPRISE!!! She's actually human!
Adi Gallia was respected member of the Jedi High Council with such greats as Yoda and Mace Windu during the years leading up to the Clone Wars. Although she was born to Corellian parents and her appearance is exotic, Gallia was revealed to be a human. The fleshy tendrils on her head are actually a headdress called a "Tholoth" headdress.. She had a key role as chief negotiator and saved countless lives during the opening battle of the Clone Wars.
Titles: Jedi Master, "The One Below"
BAMF Traits: Jedi Master, A head of gorgeous flowing hair, a mental capacity that exceeds all others, and not to mention she still kicks major ass at the age 477! Recognize.
Yaddle was a renowned Jedi Master who served the Jedi High Council for over a century. While she was not as prominent a figure as fellow species member Yoda, Yaddle was the head of the Librarian's Assembly of the Jedi Temple. Exposure to such rare works granted her powers that few can understand, including the art of Mortichro, a technique that rapidly slows the body functions of target beings. Yaddle is basically a four-century-old woman that will tap dance on your face while memorizing an encyclopedia in a foreign language.
5. Jaina Solo
Titles: Jedi Master, Rogue Squadron Pilot
BAMF Traits: Served as Jedi Master in High Council, resisted the dark side, overthrew her evil twin brother, and earned the Sword of the Jedi from her Uncle Luke Skywalker. You may have heard of him...
Jaina Solo is the daughter of Han and Leia Organa Solo from whom she inherited her mechanical aptitude and Force-sensitivity. At an early age, Jaina distinguished herself as a Rogue Squadron pilot in the New Republic Army. She almost joined the Dark Side after the death of her brother, Anakin, but fought off the urge. She had a falling out with her twin brother, Jaecen, and later killed him in a lightsaber duel. Jaina represents the third generation of Skywalkers. Her DNA makes her a combo of brains, brawn, and attitude. Han must have had his hands full with this one...
