Padmé Amidala’s Role During The Clone Wars


Star Wars: The Clone Wars gave Padmé Amidala a recurring role where she was used sparingly for storylines involving politics. While her interaction with her husband, Anakin Skywalker, was limited, she did have roles in plotlines where he, Obi-Wan and Ahsoka are all involved.

We would’ve loved more interaction between her and Ahsoka, as they appear friendly during the Assassin episode. We know that they became like sisters who shared similar views on the war and had a love for annoying Anakin whenever possible. Though we know they were close enough for Tano not to argue when Anakin asked Padmé to be her legal representation during her trial for the bombing of the Jedi Temple Hangar, a crime she never committed.

Padmé added a unique look into Star Wars politics during the Clone Wars. Her voice is often filtered out during major conflicts in favour of other political figures. She also acts as Anakin’s voice of reason or his reason to be reckless in the face of pending danger. However, the one thing she does not tolerate is Anakin risking the mission to save her.

The Sister Like Bond With Ahsoka

Regarding Ahsoka, Padmé is often seen as her rock whenever she is unsure about something. She is happy to listen. Moreover, the senator doesn’t see the padawan as her colleagues would. Padmé sees Ahsoka as an equal trying to gain experience in a difficult situation; a war she doesn’t want to be involved in.

Finally, Padmé impacted Ahsoka so much that Tano secretly attended her funeral when the Clone Wars ended. This is after Anakin fell to the dark side. As a show of respect for her late friend, Ahsoka guided her son, Luke, when he needed advice regarding Grogu.
