Ruwee Naberrie was a human male and a member of the Naberrie family. He was the father of Sola Naberrie and Padmé Amidala. During his lifetime, his strongest ally in the Galactic Senate was Onaconda Farr of Rodia. His daughter Padmé became elected queen and later member of the Senate of the Galactic Republic for their homeworld.

Biography[edit | edit source]

Early life[edit | edit source]

Son of a cloth weaver in the Naberrie family,[2] Ruwee married a woman named Jobal at some point. They had two daughters, Sola and Padmé.[3]

Sometime later Ruwee met Senator Onaconda Farr of Rodia, who became his strongest ally in the Galactic Senate.[4]

When Padmé turned fourteen years old, she was elected Queen of Naboo and adopted the name of "Padmé Amidala."[5] Successful and well-liked, she served two four-year terms, including during the Invasion of Naboo. Though she'd planned to retire from public life, Padmé was asked by her successor, Réillata, to represent Naboo in the Senate. That same day she informed Ruwee and Jobal of her decision.[3]

Death of Padmé[edit | edit source]

Following the end of the Clone Wars and the execution of Order 66, Ruwee attended the funeral of Padmé with Jobal and Sola after her death on Polis Massa.[1]

Equipment[edit | edit source]

Ruwee wore a somber black and dark red robe to his daughter's funeral, with the dark tones reflecting the family's sadness and mourning at Amidala's death.[6]

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]

Ruwee Naberrie was portrayed by Graeme Blundell in Star Wars: Episode II Attack of the Clones and Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith.[7]

During the filming of Attack of the Clones, Blundell traveled to Lake Como, Italy in order to shoot his scenes as Ruwee Naberrie,[7] but all his scenes were deleted from the film's final cut.[8] His scenes at the end of Revenge of the Sith, however, remained unchanged and made it into the finished version of the film.[1]

Ruwee's card from the digital card game Star Wars: Force Collection erroneously lists him as Qui-Gon Jinn's father.[2]
