Old Republic, and is one of 2,000 senators who calls for Palpatineto surrender his emergency powers. Alavar is present when Padmé Amidalapresents this request to the Galactic Senatein "". She was played by New Zealand Māoriactress Rena Owen.
Bail Antilles was slated to appear in "", though his scenes were ultimately cut from the final edit. However, in the film, Captain Panaka mentions Bail Antilles - along with Ainlee Teem of Malastare - is in the running to replace
Finis Valorumas Supreme Chancellorof the Galactic Republic.
Senator Antilles was a long-time servant of
Alderaan, having been Senator for several terms. Antilles served on the Internal Activities Committee of the Galactic Senate, and was the one who informed Chancellor Valorum of charges of corruption filed against him after a failed trade summit on Eriadu. After his failed bid for the chancellorship, Senator Antilles refused to seek another term, and instead allowed his son in law, Senator Bail Organa, Prince of Alderaan, to secure the senatorial seat. Antilles had two children, Breha Organaand Raymus Antilles. Raymus Antilles is the captain of Organa's blockade runner, the " Tantive IV", which can be seen in both " Revenge of the Sith" and " A New Hope". Breha will become Queen of Alderaan and adoptive mother of Leia Amidala Skywalker.
Antilles died on Alderaan in
retirementas the Galactic Empire came to power. Until his last breath, he criticized Palpatine's regime, and attempted to convince Senator Organa to withdraw from the Republic. His advice fell on deaf ears, and his dying words would be inspiration for Mon Mothma's Declaration of Rebellion nearly twenty years later.
Bail Antilles was played by
Adrian Dunbarin the scenes excised from "Episode I". The character is sometimes mistaken for Dunbar's intended role, Bail Organa— adoptive father of Princess Leia, played by Jimmy Smitsin "" and " Revenge of the Sith" — and indeed his likeness was used for pre-"Episode II" incarnations of Organa.

BesaliskDexter Jettster's diner on Coruscant. She had a hard childhood in a poor, violent section of Coruscantand feels very fortunate to be working in prosperous Coco Town. Her fate following her appearance in "" is unknown.
position=Governor of Naboo
Galactic Republic, Naboo Royal Advisory Council, Royal House of Naboo
Clone Wars, the rise of Palpatine's New Order, the Galactice Empire
Oliver Ford Davies
Sio Bibble was governor of
Nabooin the final years of the Galactic Republicand oversaw all matters brought to the Queen's attention. He also chaired the Advisory Council, and dealt directly with regional representatives and town governing official in day-to-day administration.
Early Political Career
His childhood saw Bibble shine amongst the other political students in
Theedas something as a legislative genius. At the age of twenty-one, he was appointed as the senatorial representative for Naboo in the first Galactic Republic. His marriage did not damage his political career; becoming a husband and a father made him certain of his responsibilities to instill in his fellow senators a sense of wise and just leadership. These qualities would later be an inspiration for Padme Naberrie.His first apprentice was Palpatine, a young man whom he deemed brilliant as a legislator. It came as no surprise that he was chosen as Bibble's replacement, when Sio decided to serve as a Royal Adviser.
The Trade Federation's Blockade
During the Battle of Naboo when the planet was blockaded by the
Trade Federation, he was the first who assumed that an invasion would be made by Federation forces. He remained behind when Queen Amidalafollowed the JediKnights Qui-Gon Jinnand Obi Wan Kenobito Coruscantto seek help from the Republic Senate. Though he was tempted by Viceroy Nute Gunray, he remained strong to his ideals of democracy and freedom. After Queen Amidala liberated Naboo with the help of the Gungans, Bibble attended both Qui-Gon Jinn's funeral and the celebration, and exchanged the globe of peace with the Gungans.
His Concerns About The Galactic Republic
During the events leading up to the Clone Wars Bibble had opted to remain in the position of Chief Governor of Naboo, after
Padmé Amidalaabdicated, later becoming Naboo's new representative in the Galactic Senate. He showed his concern for her when an assassination attempt was made on her life. He was also concerned about the steady fall of the Republic into civil war. However, he never realized that his former apprentice, Palpatine, was secretly behind the threads of treachery and conspiracy, that were undermining the stability of the Republic. Unbeknownst to anyone else, he contacted the Supreme Chancellor in secret about his fears. Expertly, he calmed Bibble's anxieties.
His Later Years & His Death
A few years later, the Republic fell during the Clone Wars but the ideal of "freedom" remained in the minds of people like Sio Bibble. His appearance in the film was brief, appearing only in the funeral march held for his former queen, Padmé Amidala. He was also present at the funeral of
Jamillia's successor, Apailana, which was held in secret. Once Imperial rule set in, he was forced to witness Naboo's political and civil needs severely sidelined by Palpatine, who regarded the planet as having no value to the Empire whatsoever. The final straw came when he was in the process of negotiating a new trade agreement with Alderaan. As Bibble was on the verge of finalizing it, the Death Staropened fire on Bail Organa's homeworld, obliterating it. Sio was, at first, unaware what had happened, putting it down to a fault in the transmission generators. Later that day, he witnessed an angry crowd gathering around a statue of Palpatine, who were trying to destroy it. He then came across Ryoo Naberrie, weeping, and she told him what had happened, and who was responsible. Sickened by Palpatine's and Moff Tarkin's actions, Bibble suffered a massive stroke, and he passed away, with his wife and children at his side, a few days later. The people of Naboo's hopes for Bibble's services to be recognized by The Empire were crushed. Grand Moff Jamillia, on one of her very rare visits to her home planet, dismissed him as a pathetic idealist, and Emperor Palpatine never announced the news to the Imperial Senate.

Bai Ling("Episode III")
Bana Breemu is a fictional character, portrayed by
Bai Ling, in "". She is a Senator in the waning days of the Old Republic, and one of the few galactic politicians who stands against Palpatine's abuse of power.
The scene in which she appears was cut from the theatrical release of "Revenge of the Sith". Rumor has it that the scene was removed because Bai Ling modeled nude for the
June 2005issue of " Playboy", coincident with the release of the movie. George Lucashas, however, denied that this was the reason.
position=General in the Gungan Grand Army
General Ceel was the Gungan supreme military commander at the Battle of Naboo. He had a personal distaste for General Jar Jar Binks, so he put him in the front ranks, as blaster fodder.

name=Gav and Jori Daragon
height=1.8 meters/1.6 meters
vehicle= "Starbreaker 12"
Gav and Jori Daragon are hapless explorers that inadvertently allowed
Naga Sadowto invade the Republic in the Great Hyperspace War. Left to fend for themselves after their parents were killed on a mercy mission in a warzone, they turned to the dangerous occupation of hyperspace navigating, mapping new hyperspace lanes in the uncharted frontier of the known galaxy. After several unsuccessful attempts at mapping useful hyperspace courses, they fell into despair with no home and no ship; Aarrba the Hutt would not give them their ship until they paid for the repairs done to it in his service dock.
With nothing to lose, Gav and Jori stole their ship back and escaped into unexplored hyperspace, hoping to make their fortune, but their path landed them right into the heart of the
Sith Empire. They were promptly captured and sentenced to death as the precursors to an invasion. Naga Sadowcovertly freed them from the prison on Ziost to use them as pawns in his grand scheme. Sadow began teaching the Force-sensitive Gav Sith magic, and tricked Jori into fleeing back to the Republic without her brother. Unbeknownst to Jori, Sadow had planted a homing device in her ship and now knew exactly how to get to the far off Republic — to conquer it.
Jori made it back safely to the Republic, and broadcast a warning of the coming invasion; but Jori stumbled headlong into her own tarnished reputation. She and Gav had left under bad circumstances, skipping out on large debts and obligations, fleeing the law. No one would listen to her accounts of the fabled Sith Empire and was instead dragged off to prison. After escaping from a prison colony, Jori managed to get her warning to the
Empress Teta, who had already learned of the Sith's intentions from her Jedi advisers and was preparing her defenses.
Meanwhile, Sadow gave Gav command of the Sith invasion fleet because of his knowledge of the Republic. He grudgingly accepted the command, but gave it up after realizing how much death and destruction Sadow's war was causing. In an attempt to kill Sadow, Gav was stranded aboard Sadow's meditation sphere as the Primus Goluud star exploded. Jori, however, survived the war and became the new owner of Aarrba's Repair Dock.

Exar Kunthrough Sith alchemy and was put into hibernation underneath the Temple of Fire to guard the temples of Yavin 4 after all his people were exterminated by the Jedi counterstrike against Exar Kun.

King Ommin of Onderon is a fictional character in the "
Star Wars" Expanded Universe up until the end of the Beast Wars. He was a direct descendant of Freedon Nadd, and like all the Kings before him, practiced his ancestor's Sithmagic. In his later years, his body was supported by a metal lattice, his muscles and bones having been warped and literally decayed by the dark side.
Ommin followed the typical path of an Onderonian ruler- he was born to the ruler of the great walled city Iziz, heir to the realm and its vast cache of Sith artifacts and documents, not least among which was a sarcophagus in which mouldered the
corpseand Sith spirit of the great Dark Lord of the Sith, Freedon Nadd. Ommin was tutored in the dark side by his father, much like his other lessons in diplomacy, etiquette, history, all geared to teaching him the effective use of power. The dark side lessons drew him as the other did not, and he mastered what his father could teach. His achievements would be crowned by his success, upon his accession to the throne, in compelling Nadd's spirit to manifest and instruct his lineal descendant further in the arcane secrets of the Sith.
Ommin at around this time married a beautiful
Force-sensitivenamed Amanoa, with whom he had a daughter, Galia. Inevitably, Amanoa discovered Ommin's immersion in the dark side and sought to save him. Ommin refused, and tried to instruct his wife in what he knew. She acquiesced, secretly convinced their love would prove stronger than his attachment to the dark side. She thought wrong; she had badly overestimated her resistance to the corrosive lure of the dark side, and she fell, becoming an outstanding Sith sorceress.
As his body failed, Ommin turned over "de facto" rule of Iziz to Amanoa.
Eventually, Amanoa would nearly start a war with the exiles and Beast Riders, and called in the
Jedito mediate. The Jedi rendered an unexpected verdict and turned on the royals; Amanoa confronted their leader, the famed Jedi Master Arca Jeth, and called upon Freedon Nadd. The two were defeated, and Amanoa slain. Ommin survived, but when he and his surviving forces attempted to recover Nadd's sarcophagus, he fell afoul of Ulic Qel-Droma, who used the life-support systems to his advantage, slicing it with his lightsaber. Ommin collapsed, to beaten down to fight. Freedon Nadd then stole Ommin's soul, taking it to the embrace of the dark side.

Kar Vastor is a fictional character in the
Expanded Universenovel " Shatterpoint" by Matthew Stover. He is a member of the Korunnaipeople that live on the planet Haruun Kal. Like all Korunnai, Kar Vastor is a Force-user. Kar uses dual-edged tear-shaped vibroshields made of superconductive material harvested from a Jedispaceship that crashed on the planet centuries before. This material is resistant to lightsabers, able to deflect blows but not sustained contact with the energy blade. It can also reflect laser energy blasts and deflect solid bullets, or "slugs" Kar has trained several soldiers, known as the Akk guards for their Force-linked animal companions, called Akk dogs. Mace Windustates that Kar has control of the Force, or Pelekotanin the native Korunnai language, on the level of a Jedi Knight, while never receiving formal Jedi or Sith training.
When Kar Vastor was fourteen, he saw his entire family murdered by jungle prospectors. He escaped and lived in the jungle alone without supplies. This is when he gained his unusual power in the Force. He lost human speech along the way and speaks in the voices of the jungle. This is also where he found the downed Jedi spaceship.
Vastor is personally imposing. His head is shorn bald, he is very tall, with bulging muscles, physically strong and fearless. Kar Vastor eventually fights Jedi Master Mace Windu on Haruun Kal. Their rounds are bloody and vicious. While Windu is more skilled overall, he is unable to decisively defeat Vastor. Even though Windu was landing more blows and causing more damage to Vastor, he would heal in a matter of seconds and come right back for more. He learned to respect Mace Windu's great skill in Vaapad and his martial skills in the
Teräs Käsiarts, as Mace was striking him so fast that his strikes were invisible to the naked eye.
Kar Vastor is gravely injured by Mace Windu after he (Vastor) began the systematic destruction of the city of Pelek Baw on Haruun Kal, and taken back to Coruscant to stand trial on the charge of crimes against civilization, a charge which had not been used since the
Sith War. This is also the charge that Master Depa Billaba would have faced except she was in a Force coma, self-induced after aiding Vastor in his crimes and realizing her crimes.

King Veruna abdicated the throne and went into hiding after a thirteen-year reign surrounded by scandal. He was found dead six months prior to the Battle of Naboo, and though his death was ruled accidental many suspect that he was assassinated by unknown reasons.
Captain Magneta, who had been the head of Veruna's security, stepped down following the king's death and was replaced by Captain Panaka. It was partly because of the mystery surrounding Veruna's death that Panaka developed the plan of employing decoys for Queen Amidala.

Palpatinewas in reality the Sith Lord Darth Sidious, who had masterminded the blockade crisis that led to the battle for Naboo.
