Yané and the other handmaidens were trained in self-defense and marksmanship by Amidala's head of security, Captain Panaka.[3] She was also a musician.[4]

The youngest of all the handmaidens,[5] Yané remained behind with Saché during the Trade Federation Crisis when the Queen, Sabé, Rabé and Eirtaé fled the planet with the help of the Jedi.[2]

Yané was later reunited with Queen Amidala and her fellow handmaidens after the Battle of Naboo, and attended both Jedi Master Qui-Gon Jinn's funeral and the Celebration Parade.[2]
