"Who is it?"
"Anakin Skywalker, to see Padmé, Your Highness."
―Queen Amidala and Rabé[src]

Rabé was a female Human who served as one of Queen Padmé Amidala's handmaidens during the last years of the Galactic Republic.

Rabé and the other handmaidens were trained in self-defense and marksmanship. Their rigorous training was supervised by Amidala's head of security, Captain Panaka.[3] Rabé excelled with weapons and could also use more subtle forms of persuasion.[4]

During one of the handmaidens' training sessions, Rabé was pursued and constantly shot at by a dysfunctional training droid. Hidden behind a waterfall, she was eventually saved by Amidala who destroyed the droid with a swift kick and helped Rabé get back to safety.[3]

Rabé's primary duty as a handmaiden, other than bodyguard, was to prepare Queen Amidala's elaborate hairstyles. She also had a lot of patience and was often assigned to soothe Amidala's nerves.[5] Rabé was bilingual and was able to speak Sullustese.[4]
