After the battle between Anakin and Obi-Wan, Obi-Wan leaves the victor, stowing away aboard a medical ship...

"If it's a girl, we were going to name her Leia," says Padme as the birth of her daughter begins.

A medical droid approaches Padme. "It's a boy," it says. Padme reaches out and touches the infants head.

"Luke," she says. A second baby is baby is brought to her by the droid.

"It's a girl," says the droid. But Padme is no longer her self - she is delirious.

"Anakin!" she suddenly cries. Obi-Wan comforts her, telling her that Anakin is not there and that she has had twins.

Padme begins to talk, drifiting in and out of consciousness. "Anakin, I'm sorry. I'm so sorry... Anakin, please... I love you..."

Yoda enters the room and Obi-Wan shakes his head in sorrow. But then Padme regains consciousness for one last time and puts something into Kenobi's hand.

"Obi-Wan, there is still good in him... I know... there... is... still... "

As Padme Amidala Skywalker dies, Obi-Wan opens his hand and gazes upon a jaipor snippet.



When Padme dies after giving birth to Anakin's offspring, Obi-Wan immediately begins the separation process of Luke and Leia Skywalker to protect them from the Emperor.



Obi-Wan hopes that should the Emperor discover one of them, the other will remain safely hidden from the Sith. However, when asked about training the infants, Yoda firmly states:

"Jedi training, the sole source of self-discipline is not. When right is the time for skills to be taught, to us the living Force will bring them. Until then, wait we will, and watch, and learn."

On the Tantive IV, Senator Organa calls upon the captain of his starship, Captain Antilles. With the Senator is Threepio and Artoo.



"I'm placing these droids in your care," instructs Bail. "Have them cleaned, polished and refitted with the best of everything; they will belong to my new daughter."

The captain ushers the two droids away.

"How lovely!" exclaims Threepio to Artoo, walking down the corridor. "His daughter is the child of Master Anakin and Senator Amidala. I can hardly wait to tell her all about her parents! I'm sure she will be very proud-"

Suddenly, Bail turns and says, "Oh, and the protocol droid? Have its mind wiped."

The captain salutes.

"Oh," says C-3PO. "Oh, dear."
