Skywalker traits! Luke and Leia are the galaxy’s most famous twins. Separated at birth upon their biological mother’s death, Padmé Amidala and the fall of their father, Anakin Skywalker, the siblings lived very different lives. But, what became apparent from their many adventures, they shared many of the same characteristics as their parents.

In this post, we’re going to explore these, so we do have to air on the side of spoilers if something comes up in Obi-Wan Kenobi.

Like Their Father – Anakin Skywalker

Luke and Leia inherited an equal amount of their characteristics from their father, Anakin.

As the son of Skywalker, Luke inherited much of his father’s appearance, from the blonde hair in his youth to the blue eyes. He also became a fairly decent pilot, a skill Anakin was widely known for during his life. Unfortunately, Luke also lost a limb, his lightsaber and became a Jedi.

Leia, however, inherited Anakin’s temper, a trait she would, unfortunately, pass down to her son, Ben. She would also develop a sense of humour like her father. However, despite Anakin and Luke’s strong Force sensitivity, this was not something Leia ended up with. While she did have the Force flowing through her, her power was more passive. Emperor Palpatine had no clue that she could potentially wield the Force, given her low force sensitivity. For a short time, she began Jedi training but stopped when she discovered a potential future where she would have to kill her then-unborn son.

Like Their Mother – Padmé Amidala

Despite having no memories of his mother, Luke inherited Padmé’s calmness and her willingness to believe there was still good within his father.

Leia, meanwhile, inherited many of her mother’s physical attributes. She had the same chocolate brown eyes and the same hair colour. She would also enter the grand arena known as politics. Though, this could be argued that she followed in her adoptive father’s footsteps. She could also fire a blaster with the same accuracy as her mother.
