Palpatine

The Last Chancellor

Details

Description

Palpatine was the last chancellor of the Old Republic, and the mastermind behind the biggest power-grab in galactic history. Practicing forbidden Sith techniques under his alternate identity of Darth Sidious, Palpatine arranged for his public persona to deflect suspicion while receiving praise and political respect. In time he moved from a senator representing Naboo to the Republic's Supreme Chancellor, and used the power of his office to launch the Clone Wars. With Order 66 bringing about the end of the Jedi Order, Palpatine declared himself Emperor. This marked an end to his "kindly old man" charade with which he had fooled even the wisest members of the Jedi Council.

Senator Palpatine always seemed like a political ally to Valorum. He offered what advice he could to Valorum during the troubled days of the Republic.

It was Palpatine that quietly urged for a Vote of No Confidence that ended Valorum's rule.
