Darth Vader #31

The story of the former Naboo Handmaindens continues in Darth Vader #31 with Vader and the reluctant Handmaidens setting out to save Sabé from Jul Tambor. As we've gotten throughout the arc, we see more flashbacks with Vader remembering Padmé pulling away from him and his twisted hope that things might turn out better this time with Sabé.

Vader's method of working together isn't exactly what the women had in mind as he throws them to the wolves as little more than a distraction, but it ultimately does lead to to freeing Sabé. Through the introduction of an Umbaran, we get a little information to help give the Handmaidens some more distinct personalities as we get to learn at least a minimal amount about Dormé, Eirtaé, Saché, and Rabé. But now that their partnership was successful, what happens to the Handmaidens?
