Leia's chain was attached to loop on her collar around her neck and held by Jabba.The chain was originally very long until broken by R2-D2. After R2-D2 freed her, half of her chain was still attached to her collar, a reminder of the slavery she had escaped from. Jabba used the chain to prevent Leia's escape and also to control her. By tugging on the chain from time to time and choking her he reminded Leia of his mastery over her. Ironically, she would eventually use the chain to strangle the Hutt Lord to death.
Leia's Perception of her Chain.Edit
Leia hated her chain the most along with her collar, as it gave Jabba complete control over her by keeping her on a short tether letting Leia go as far away from Jabba on the throne as the chain would let her go. Leia hated that she felt the cold chain against her naked back, Along with Jabba constant tugging, and yanking keeping her close as possible to make the scantily clad princess not to stray far from him, especially on the sail barge yanking the chain once ignoring Jabba making him pull the chain with full force making her run to him. Leia hated most when Jabba choked her as she had to gasp for air in pain.She disliked that Jabba played with the chain reminding her of her place as his slave. Jabba loved seeing the half naked princess in pain from his tuggs and yanks of her chain, Along with her collar, this showed everybody the proud princess was now a pet to the Great Jabba the Hutt. She did not like feeling the cold chain against her naked back when she slept at it would often move causing her to make her self comfortable adjusting her self accordence to the chain. Also when Jabba yanked her chain for her to sleep on his belly feeling the coldness of it on her cheeks.
