- "Amidala, listen--! I'm telling you straight out, I love you! Don't leave me behind! You don't have to go through this alone! Don't shut me out!"
- ―Ian Lago
Ian sometimes worked as a page at the royal palace in Naboo's capital city of Theed. At the end of the corrupt King's reign, he purportedly fell in love with the then-Princess of Theed, Padmé Amidala, when he saw her for the first time on the main plaza. He accompanied her to Coruscant to volunteer at the Refugee Relief Movement.
During his brief relationship with Amidala, his father secretly found out about their relationship and even witnessed them kissing. Ian also never told Amidala of his father's position in Veruna's court, but she later found out on her own. Ian's father forbade him to ever see Amidala again and threatened to disown Ian if he did not comply with his father's wishes.
When Amidala was elected Queen of Naboo, he declared his love to her; but she ended their relationship to devote her time to the people of Naboo. Heartbroken, he departed from Naboo and never saw Amidala again.
