Lol at Leia being incredibly petty.

I feel bad for Evil Foil-Leia, this arc isn't going to end well for her. My guess at what's going to happen is that Leia's plan goes swimmingly with a few hiccups. They manage to stop the spike without harming any civilians, the planet becomes a normal mining planet, not spectacular but profitable enough that it's worth it to the Empire to keep the planet around.

And then the empire decides to destroy Shu-Torun anyways as an example for failure.

There was an moment in Uber that the Nazi's did something incredibly cruel to one of it's characters. Somebody asked Kieron why the Nazi's would do that, since it was a completely unproductive, illogical and useless strategically. Kieron replied "If you're smart enough to realize that, you're smart enough to figure out why they did it.".

Glad to see Kanchar back, really like that guy. Gruff and tough but actually smart enough to respect the Rebels and not making it too personal. Rare to see that in the Empire.

I love Leia's expression in her final panel. She's taking this all so personally when she ought to realize that her rival did what she did to protect her people. Sometimes royal choices are hard. Still, it's kind of fun to see Petty Leia. :)

Of all the foil characters Kieron created for his Star Wars comic, Queen Trios is the most sympathetic and interesting.

We have "what if CP30 and R2D2 were evil?" which was pretty entertaining. We had "what if Han Solo really was the amoral rogue he pretended to be?", which lead to the self-hating cynical evil narcissist that is Dr. Aphra.

But Trios always had the most interesting question "What if Princess Leia was mentored by Darth Vader?".

*nods*

Nurture over nature can create interesting characters. Leia is tough and willing to make the hard choices. People tend to forget that she was bad-ass on the Death Star after watching her home planet blow up and enduring torture by Vader. She just forges ahead and gets the job done, much like Trios, who does have that Vaderesque POV. .
