Bec Lawise was a male Siniteen and leading senator in the Separatist Senate during the Clone Wars. He acted as the speaker of the senate on the planet Raxus, the capital of the Confederacy of Independent Systems. During the war, Lawise was present when senator Mina Bonteri of Onderon introduced a bill in the Parliament to begin peace talks with the Republic Senate. The bill passed, however Dooku ended the hopes of peace quickly by attacking Coruscant, the Republic capital, and having Bonteri murdered.
Lawise was also in attendance during a peace conference with members of the Republic Senate on the neutral system of Mandalore, when Lux Bonteri, son of the late Mina Bonteri, publicly accused Count Dooku of being responsible for the murder of his mother. Lawise ordered security droids to arrest Bonteri.
Lawise later traveled to Scipio and served as a Separatist representative alongside Senator Padmé Amidala, representative for the Republic, in order to oversee the initiation of Rush Clovis as the leader of the Banking Clan. It was discovered that Clovis had been coerced by Dooku to end Separatist debt in the Banking Clan, and Dooku arrested Senator Amidala. When Lawise objected, Dooku disposed of him by using the Force to make Amidala shoot Lawise against her will.
