this young boy was the son of Kun Lago, and was about the same age as Amidala. He was deeply in love with her, despite the fact that he had never actually met her. He set out to meet her, and, in fact, became good friends with Amidala. A simple romance blossomed, much to the dismay of Ian's father, who had been trying to blame Veruna's problems on Amidala herself. Kun disowned Ian, who fled his father's house to warn Amidala of Kun's treachery. After King Veruna abdicated the throne and Amidala was elected Queen, she was forced to expose Veruna's dealings and destroy the political career of Kun Lago. Ian hoped that she would return his love, but Amidala had already made her decision to devote her life to the people of Naboo. Distraught, Ian hired himself out to a starship captain and fled Naboo.
