Biography[]

"My father says they never let you leave this planet. They don't want anybody to know about you because you're not one of us. You're not even a real Organa."
―Niano Organa, to Leia Organa[1]

Niano Organa was the son of Duke Kayo Organa and Duchess Celly Organa, whose sister was Queen Breha Organa of Alderaan. He was also a cousin to Princess Leia Organa, the adopted daughter of Queen Breha and Senator Bail Prestor Organa.[1]

The cousins Leia and Niano Organa quarrelled at a family gathering on Alderaan.

During the Imperial Era, Niano attended a gathering put together by the officials of the House of Organa on Alderaan. When his cousin, Leia thanked Y-O for serving her food, Niano mocked her for thanking a droid, which he saw as a lower life form. He then said that due to Leia being adopted, she would never be a true Organa. Leia countered by saying that she knew Niano only sought his father's approval and was constantly trying to impress him. This upset Niano, who left Leia alone. Later, despite her father Bail's encouragement, she refused to apologize to Niano due to his hatred toward droids.[1]
