From the MoviesDespite no longer being Queen of Naboo, Senator Padmé Amidala was still tended to by a loyal cadre of handmaidens that served as bodyguards and decoys during the galaxy's tumultuous times of uncertainty. Cordé died in the line of duty when would-be assassin Zam Wesell attacked the Naboo Royal Cruiser on its arrival on Coruscant. Cordé was posing as Senator Amidala, while the actual Padmé hid as a starfighter pilot flying escort for the craft. Cordé died on that fog-shrouded platform, apologizing to Padmé with her dying breath.
From the Expanded UniverseThe term "handmaiden" is more of a holdover from Amidala's royal days. In her role as Senator, Padmé has been freed from the more elaborate of the courtly Naboo protocols. Cordé could more properly be described as a bodyguard, and she is highly trained in that regard.
Behind the ScenesCordé was played by Veronica Segura for her brief scenes in Attack of the Clones. A third handmaiden, named Versé, was barely glimpsed emerging from the Naboo Royal Cruiser, though her role remains uncredited.
