"She insisted you would find it amusing, Your Highness."
―Agira speaks to Breha Organa after the Queen discovers the handmaiden's ruse[2]

Agira was an Imroosian female who served as a handmaiden of the House of Organa on the planet Alderaan. In 9 BBY, Princess Leia Organa convinced Agira to wear her clothing as a disguise, claiming that Queen Breha Organa would find it amusing. When the queen came to collect Leia in the Royal Palace of Alderaan, she was initially fooled by Agira's disguise, but ultimately saw through the ruse when she felt the scales on the Imroosian's hands.

Biography[]

"She's ready? Great."
―Queen Breha Organa is fooled by Agira's disguise[2]

Agira was an[2] Imroosian[1] female who served the House of Organa,[2] the royal house of the planet Alderaan,[3] as a handmaiden.[2] In 9 BBY,[4] Princess Leia Organa persuaded Agira and three other handmaidens that her mother, Queen Breha Organa, would find it amusing if Agira was disguised as Leia. The other handmaidens then dressed Agira in the princess's clothing in one of the rooms of the Royal Palace of Alderaan.[2]

Agira's disguise as Princess Leia Organa fooled Queen Breha Organa.

The queen then entered the room and, believing that the handmaiden was her daughter, began briefing Agira on an upcoming meeting with the Breha's sister, Celly Organa, and her family. The queen took Agira's hand and began leading her toward the door, but stopped when she felt the scales on the Imroosian's hands. Breha pulled back the hood concealing Agira's smiling face, after which the handmaiden revealed that Leia had come up with the ruse. The queen then left to find Leia, who had snuck out to go shipspotting in the nearby forest.[2]

Personality and traits[]

Agira had scaled white skin, brown eyes, and brown hair,[2] which was intricately braided as part of her disguise.[1]

Equipment[]

While disguised as Organa, Agira wore a white blouse, pink pants,[2] a pair of brocaded velvet shoes,[1] and an embroidered pink tunic and matching hooded scarf.[2]
