"Bornae. So young."
―Jora Astane mourns Bornae's death[src]

Bornae was a young, fair-skinned, male human from the planet Alderaan. He lived in the Alderaan Enclave on the planet Sullust following his homeworld's destruction by the Galactic Empire.[1] In 0 ABY,[2] shortly after the Battle of Yavin, Princess Leia Organa of Alderaan visited the conclave as part of an effort to rescue surviving Alderaanians from the Empire. Not long after her arrival, Imperial stormtroopers attacked the enclave and Bornae was killed during the fighting. After the Alderaanians managed to defeat the Imperials, Preserver Jora Astane, the head of the enclave, found Bornae's body and mourned his death.[1]

Behind the scenesEdit

Bornae first appeared in Princess Leia, Part III, a comic book[1] released on April 29, 2015[3] that was written by Mark Waid and illustrated by Terry Dodson.[1]
