Most Tragic Star Wars Characters, #1: Leia Organa
Luke’s tragedy is bested only by that of his sister. Her planet, parents, destroyed. Her father? Among those responsible. She fight the good fight for the good of all people, never once truly placing her own needs or desires before those of others. It cost her everything. Leia lost her people, friends like Ackbar, Mon Mothma, and Vice Admiral Holdo. Her Resistance crumbled, her own son murdered the love of her life, and led to her brother’s passage into the Force. As tragic as it may be to perish, it’s worse still to watch so much befall those around you. Leia Organa, most tragic of the tragic Star Wars characters, indeed.
So who would you add to this list?
