Mas Amedda and Supreme Chancellor Valorum addressing the Galactic Senate

A canny Chagrian politician, Mas Amedda served as the Republic’s Vice Chancellor under Valorum during the Naboo crisis. When Senator Palpatine succeeded Valorum as Chancellor, Amedda retained his position under the Republic’s new leader.

Amedda and Palpatine addressing the Galactic Senate

Amedda was one of the few in the galaxy who knew Palpatine was a Sith Lord, and assisted the Chancellor as Speaker of the Senate, helping him manipulate Senators into granting him more and more power.

Palpatine’s triumph over the Separatists and the Jedi was also Amedda’s – he stood beside Palpatine as the Republic was declared dead, replaced by the First Galactic Empire.

Amedda’s loyalty was rewarded – years later, he remained at Palpatine’s side as Grand Vizier of the Empire, summoning military leaders such as Grand Moff Tarkin to Coruscant and greeting governors such as Lothal’s Arihnda Pryce.
