Captain Amsala Borden is young to be the governor of Pennyfort. Just 23, she was assigned the position by her superior three years ago and was joined by her husband Garron a year later. Their young daughter, Kayla, lives with them.
Amsala is a capable leader, and both the military and the bureaucracy in Pennyfort respect her. She keeps her long brown hair in a braid down her back and focuses strongly on her goals. Her speech is swift and clipped.
