Which of these Star Wars Handmaidens is not like the others?

With the world abuzz about the direct to video Star Wars movie coming out this weekend, I thought it appropriate to pay a visit to wookiepedia and research minutae about Star Wars.  It turns out that all of the queens handmaidens have names, even though they don’t matter and you don’t care.  Here is the complete list, anything stand out?

Cordé
Dormé
Eirtaé
Ellé
Moteé
Rabé
Sabé
Saché
Versé
Yané
Brianna
Dané

Yes, Brianna, the “and the rest” of the Queen’s handmaidens.  Not issued an accented ‘e’ at birth, she was doomed to a failed life. This quote from the Handmaiden Sisters of Atris* speaks volumes:

“She has always brought shame upon us. In terms of combat, she is the least among us. Her stance always had too much passion about it.”

So to sum up:

-Her combat = brings shame.
-Her stance = too passionate.
-Her name = jarring when reciting the whole list of Queen’s handmaidens, (aka the “Doc” effect).

Brianna – She’s the total package!

*I have no idea what this is
