I love him Obi-Wan. I know you and the council don't like it, but i can't help how i feel about him. When i was dying on Mortis, the only regret i had was that i had turned away from him. I've been given a second chance to make things right, i intend to take it.
—Padmé Amidala to Obi-Wan Kenobi in regards to her feelings for Anakin Skywalker
Padmé Amidala, born Padmé Naberrie was a Jedi Knight in the days before the the Empire and went on to become a Jedi Master with a seat on the council. However Padmé past was not easy to deal with when she learned some truths about how she ended up in the Jedi Order.
Born Padmé Naberrie, she was born with a very high Midi-chlorian count, higher than even Master Yoda's. Because of this, she was one of the few children that were taken from her family by force. This resulted in her name being changed from Naberrie, to Amidala.
It wouldnt be until she encountered Count Dooku in the Hanger on Geonosis that she learned the truth about how she ended up a Jedi. Because of this, she would loose trust in the Jedi as well as her master for what she percieved as her kidnapping. Although she would make peace with her master Qui-Gon Jinn when she learns that he knew nothing of this.
Padmé would also form a very close and powerful bond with a powerful force user named Anakin Skywalker.

Personality and traits
Skills and Abilities
- Padmé Amidala: "I do love you Anakin, but everything in my training tells me that i can't trust you."
- Anakin Skywalker: "So just because i wasn't raised in the temple, that means I'm dangerous? You people really are nothing by a group of fanatics."
- Padmé Amidala: "This is my point Anakin, you have no respect for my beliefs. No matter what i may feel about you, we can never be together."
- Anakin Skywalker: "Your saying that you can't trust me because i'm a force user that isnt a Jedi, yet your complaining that i don't respect your beliefs. Your nothing but a hypocrite. What a mistake I made falling in love with you."
Padmé first met Anakin on Tatooine after escaping the blockade of Naboo. The two would quickly form a friendship but after the Trade Federation is defeated they would no see each other for several years.
After Anakin helps Qui-Gon find her when she was kidnapped, she and Anakin begin to form a strong bond and the two stay in contact despite the Jedi Rules on attachments.
While protecting Sabé Nadal just before the start of the Clone War, she falls in love with Anakin and he with her. However after learning of the budding romance between Anakin and Padmé both Yoda and Obi-Wan question her and place doubts in her mind as to whether or not Anakin can really be trusted. This results in her turning away from Anakin and breaking his heart in the process.
For the next year and a half, Anakin and Padmé would be forced to work together as Anakin joined the Grand Army of the Republic and was appointed a General by Chancellor Palpatine. Despite working together, Anakin kept Padmé at a distance and was not shy about making it known that he wanted nothing to do with her.
However during a mission to a strange place called Mortis, Padmé is poisoned by a powerful force user known as the Son. To save her life, Anakin unveils some of his true power and in the process allows Padmé to see into his mind. Seeing and feeling everything that Anakin was, made Padme realize what a mistake she had made as she also realized that Yoda and Obi-Wan had played on her fears. After the mission on Mortis Padmé realized how much she truly loved Anakin and despite her fears attempted to repair the damage in their relationship.
Anakin, i don't expect you to forgive me. But i am sorry. I let Master Yoda and Obi-Wan play on my fears and what i did to you, can never be taken back. I never stopped loving you. If you never believe anything else i say, please believe that
—Padmé Amidala to Anakin Skywalker as she tries to repair the rift between them.
It would take time, but eventually Anakin would forgive Padmé and the two began to once again form a romantic relationship. Shortly after the bombing of the Jedi Temple the pair would be married in secret on Tatooine with Qui-Gon, Shmi, Artoo, Threepio and the Lars as Witnesses.
