Sabe, formerly known as Tsabin, was a human female who hailed from the planet Naboo during the late era of the Galactic Republic. Serving as a handmaiden in the Royal House of Naboo, Sabe was duty-bound to protect Queen Padme Amidala - the elected ruler of the people of Naboo - against any threat. As such, she impersonated Amidala during the Invasion of Naboo in order to keep her safe from the Trade Federation. Sabe continued to act as a decoy queen after the Jedi ambassadors Qui-Gon Jinn and Obi-Wan Kenobi rescued the true Amidala as well as her royal retinue. Upon returning to Naboo from Coruscant, Sabe was introduced as Queen Amidala to the Gungan people. Hoping to forge an alliance between Gungans and the Naboo, the real Amidala identified herself to Boss Rugor Nass - leader of the Gungans - and thereby revealed Sabe's true role as the queen's handmaiden, decoy and loyal bodyguard. Sabe continued to wear her disguise during the Battle of Naboo. Storming the Royal Palace in Theed, the decoy caught the attention of Viceroy Nute Gunray, who ordered his battle droids to pursue Sabe, believing her to be the real queen. As a result, Amidala and Captain Quarsh Panaka were able to secure the throne room and capture Gunray. Ultimately, the battle concluded in victory for both the Royal Naboo Security Forces and the Gungan Grand Army. Following Amidala's death at the end of the Clone Wars, Sabe and Captain Tonra changed their identities and started an investigation to discover how she had died.
