The Challenge of the Body was one of the three challenges that an Alderaanian heir had to undertake to prove their worthiness to be formally declared heir to the Alderaanian throne, along with the challenges of the Mind and Heart. Traditionally, the heir climbed Appenza Peak, a famous mountain visible from the capital Aldera, solo, although they could choose to bring along one companion.
When she was heir to the Alderaanian throne, Breha Organa was severely injured in a fall while completing her Challenge of the Body. She would have died if not for the royal guards supervising from a distance. This led to the replacement of her heart and lungs with cybernetic pulmonodes.
