The title of this article is conjectural.

Although this article is based on canonical information, the actual name of this subject is pure conjecture.

A small, sparkling pool was located in a garden in the Jedi Temple on the planet Coruscant.[2] In 22 BBY,[1] shortly after the beginning of the Clone Wars between the Galactic Republic and the Confederacy of Independent Systems, the Jedi Order held a war briefing in the garden for members of the Galactic Senate. The briefing was attended by both Supreme Chancellor Sheev Palpatine and Sabé, a former handmaiden of Naboo Senator Padmé Amidala who was secretly impersonating the senator while she was off on a secret mission.[2]

Palpatine, secretly Dark Lord of the Sith Darth Sidious, had recognized Sabé's impersonation quickly and singled her out during the briefing, using the dark side of the Force during their conversation to influence Sabé into requesting Amidala's return to Coruscant. Unsettled by the encounter but not knowing why, Sabé sat on a bench by the pool to recover herself after being left there by Palpatine. Deciding that she could not stand in for Amidala again, Sabé looked back at the pool to center herself before walking away. The pool's water later dried up, resisting the best efforts of the Temple gardeners to refill it.[2]

Behind the scenes[]

The pool appeared in the 2022 young-adult novel Queen's Hope, written by E. K. Johnston,[2] the final installment in a trilogy about Padmé Amidala.[3]
