Sandé Veruna of Naboo, (publicly known by her regnal name Sandé Réillata, and also known as Her Royal Highness, Queen Réillata of Naboo) was the sister of Kai Veruna and daughter of Fae and Finik Veruna. Veruna was democratically elected as Queen of Naboo at some point around her eighteenth birthday, thereupon assuming the regnal persona of Queen Réillata for the duration of her reign.
During this period, her brother, Kai Veruna, served as Governor for the Sector, representing Naboo at the ISC Parliament and the Galactic Senate.
Sandé Veruna participated in many events through and during the Force Eternal period of galactic history, both at a political level and more directly. An ardent believer in the cultural and political clout of her homeworld, Veruna championed the Naboo for many years. Whilst she projected the image of a selfless public servant through her role as Queen Réillata, in truth Veruna was a political animal, working with her family to further advance the wealth and position of the House Veruna no matter the cost.
Having been raised in a wealthy family, she wanted very little in her formative years. Going through the Legislative Youth Program at the age of sixteen, Veruna excelled in the program and was quickly headhunted to join the Independent Systems Consortium Refugee Agency (I.S.C.R.A), as an administrator helping with the relief of the AMS virus and the relocation of displaced persons. After some time with the organisation, she switched to a volunteer role to allow her to pursue her political ambitions. Just after her eighteenth birthday, Veruna ran for and succeeded in becoming the next Queen of Naboo, following her predecessor Queen Parnelli reaching the end of her term.
Upon her ascension to the throne, she took the regnal name Réillata.
Personality & Traits
Possessed of a keen intellect, Veruna was a woman who knew what she wanted and was prepared to do whatever it took to get it. An excellent manipulator, she projected an air of public service and charity to all those around her, playing to the stereotypes others had given to her world and its leaders. However, beneath the veneer of compassion, she was a cold-hearted pragmatist, hell-bent on furthering the power and station of her historic family.
Hailing from considerable wealth, she had never wanted for much during her youth, benefiting from an excellent education that prepared her for a life of public service. Attending the Legislative Youth Program at a young age, she learned administration and other basic governmental skills. During this time she undertook studies into public speaking, which manifested itself in her late teens, producing a persuasive and empathetic speaker.
Owing to her time with the I.S.C.R.A she was a competent pilot, most at home with those of the classical Naboo design and style. She could read, write and speak Basic, High Galactic and Hapian. Through a series of House Veruna martial trainers, she learned self-defensive combat and was something of a marksman with a pistol or hunting rifle. Offical Biography of Her Majesty, Queen Réillata of Naboo
As was customary for the monarchy of the Naboo, Veruna adopted a 'Regnal Persona' upon ascending to the throne of Naboo. Taking the name Réillata, and thereafter Queen Réillata of Naboo, Veruna worked hard to manufacture and project an image of service and good character through her persona.
Her Royal Highness, Queen Réillata of Naboo was elected shortly after her eighteenth birthday on a platform of self-sacrifice and public service. Coming from a family with a long tradition of serving the people, Her Majesty spent much of her teens in the Legislative Youth Program, where she was a top student. Known for her deep compassion and care for others, she was known affectionately as the 'peoples Queen'.
As was customary, Her Majesty was not involved in the politics of the Naboo Government nor of the wider ISC, or Galactic Senate, instead completely wedded to the people of her world. Queen Réillata of Naboo was a talented artist, and a patron of the arts, known for her work in advancing the skills of the youth of the Naboo, and made this passion a core part of her program for Government.
Carefully maintained by Veruna herself, as well as her support staff of Handmaidens, Queen Réillata was mostly known as the figurehead for the Naboo. The persona was little more than a projection of what people wanted from a monarch and was not an accurate representation of Veruna herself.
This character has, in one form or another, sat in my Google Drive for over a year, and various people have in their own way (either knowingly or unknowingly) help with my motivation to make her. In each timeline, I try to make a 'main' character (aka: one that I focus on and try to plug into the forum-wide story). Normally, that character takes the form of a Hutt, so this time I have spent months playing around with new ideas, and settled on the Queen of Naboo. There was a 'false start' with her last year, before my work-related hiatus, but now we are back in business!
I expect to be very very active with this character, so if you are looking to do a thread with her, just drop me a DM here, or on discord and let's see what stories we can tell. Thanks to @Nefieslab and @vamp, as well as @Sangga.
As Queen of Naboo, Réillata has access to a wide range of equipment and assets, which are listed here as best as can be expected. Where possible, she has done her best to split her personal possessions off from those she may make use of in her function as Queen. Personal Belongings
