Added DiffLines:

* ImmediateSequel: The comic kicks off during and immediately after the award ceremony at the end of ''Film/ANewHope''.

Added DiffLines:

* HonorBeforeReason: Leia sneaks off on a mission to rally her people and protect them from the Empire, despite pretty much everyone with an opinion on the matter telling her she's already got a huge target on her back and needs to lay low. [[spoiler: This includes actively working to save a group of Alderaanians who are violently opposed to coming with her, and even going out of her way to rescue an Alderaanian serving in the Imperial fleet who had previously been trying to track down and capture Leia before [[YouHaveFailedMe she fell out of favor with her superiors.]]]]


** Leia and Evaan see a mural of [[Film/ThePhantomMenace Queen Padmé Amidala in her red royal garb]] on Naboo in issue #2. Leia [[Film/ReturnOfTheJedi seems to recognise her]], but she doesn't know why.

Added DiffLines:

** Luke and Wedge's technique to prevent Leia from leaving is to crowd close to the shuttle, flying in front of it so they can't go to Hyperspeed without plowing into them. They only escape due to Evaan's bluff tricking them into backing off to give them space, thinking their hyperdrive has been disabled.


Added DiffLines:

* DramaticIrony: After witnessing an argument between a pair of sisters, Leia wishes she had had a sibling she could turn to for support. Amusingly enough, two issues earlier, [[LongLostRelative Luke]] (who also thinks he has no surviving family) had told Leia that ''he'' wished she had someone she could lean on for support too.


Added DiffLines:

* TheQuisling: One of the surviving Alderaanians is a [[spoiler: loyal Imperial officer]]. Naturally, Leia seeks to [[HonorBeforeReason recruit her too.]]


Added DiffLines:

* SourSupporter: Evaan to Leia. She harbors some personal dislike for Leia based on [[IceQueen her impression of Leia's apparent lack of grief over their homeworld's destruction]], but insists on giving Leia the loyalty she's entitled to as Alderaan's Queen.


* CanonImmigrant: The comic re-canonizes Breha Organa's history of civic service as the Queen of Alderaan from the previous ''Legends'' continuity.

* BigBad: Commander Dreed, the Imperial officer in charge of hunting down and exterminating the remaining Alderaanians, with Princess Leia being at the top of that list.


Added DiffLines:

* FantasticRacism: Jora Astane is disgusted upon discovering that the Alderaanians who settled on Espirion have interbreed with the natives, creating the mixed-species Alder-Espirions. Astane later comments that she views this a further "dilution" of the endangered Alderaanian people.
* FinalSolution: The Empire is seeking to exterminate all remaining traces of Alderaan from the galaxy, starting with its people.

Added DiffLines:

* PrisonerExchange: In Issue 4, Leia gives herself up in exchange for an Alderannian the Imperials are holding hostage.

Added DiffLines:

* AffablyEvil: Lord Junn. He is a [[LoveableRogue Loveable Rogue]] type who [[spoiler: attempts to betray Leia, but is too squeamish to kill her himself. When she learns the truth and forces him to talk at gunpoint, he reveals that he's less interested in helping the Empire and more interested in living a life of ease (which he argues would be impossible with the Empire removed). When Leia demands a starship in exchange for his life, he does not argue, and even seems most willing to comply with her request.]]

* TheBechdelTest: It's a story about two [[ActionGirl Action Girls]] who have little company aside from their own, at least early on, so this is a given. There are even times they come into contact with ''other'' female characters.
