"Setting up the mercenary contract from the Emperor's office didn't work either? No mistrust? No dramatic accusations?"
Barokki, speaking with his accomplice[src]

The Emperor's office,[3] formerly known as the Chancellor's office or the Chancellor's Suite,[4] was located near the top of the Senate Office Building with a grand view of the city-planet of Coruscant. Supreme Chancellor Sheev Palpatine held meetings with members of the Senate and the Jedi Order in his office. The entrance was guarded by two members of his red guards.[1]

When the Jedi discovered Palpatine's true identity as the Sith Lord Darth Sidious, four Jedi Masters including Mace Windu attempted to arrest him in his office. Palpatine engaged them in a duel and killed three of the Masters before Windu disarmed him. However, Jedi Knight Anakin Skywalker stormed into the Chancellor's office demanding he be left alive as he believed Palpatine held the key to helping Skywalker keep his wife, Padmé Amidala, alive. Windu refused and Skywalker severed his arm, allowing Palpatine, now fully erupting as the Dark Lord, to kill Windu with Force lightning and sending the dead Jedi's body out of the window of the executive building. Palpatine then issued Order 66, declaring all Jedi to be enemies of the state.[5]


Jedi Knight Obi-Wan Kenobi and his young Padawan Anakin Skywalker arrived at the office to meet with Supreme Chancellor Palpatine who had requested the visit after visiting the Jedi Temple the previous day. Palpatine greeted the pair warmly as he rose from his desk to and made his way over to the Jedi as they exchanged pleasantries. Kenobi asked if there was something he and Skywalker could do for the Chancellor, Palpatine informed him that he had an errand he would like Skywalker to join him on. Kenobi was not sure of the request but Palpatine assured him that everything would be fine.[6]

Skywalker and the Chancellor returned to the office from their excursion to Club Kasakar discussing Senator Colandrus and the potential danger that could occur if the Chancellor tried to have him removed from office. Palpatine sat down at his desk while Skywalker stood before him as the Chancellor informed the young Padawan that his office had no direct control over the Jedi Order as they were under senatorial authority. Dismayed, Skywalker made his way to the office window where Palpatine asked if he was happy at the temple. After Skywalker said he was, Palpatine rose from his seat and motioned to a Senate Guard across the room telling Skywalker that he felt he owed the young Jedi and that he would always have a place at the Chancellor’s side.[7]

Separatist CrisisEdit

After the Following an assassination attempt on Senator Padmé Amidala, Palpatine met with Jedi Masters Yoda, Mace Windu, Plo Koon, Ki-Adi-Mundi and fellow Jedi Kit Fisto, Luminara Unduli and her Padawan Barriss Offee in the office where they discussed the growing threat of Count Dooku's Separatist movement and the Chancellor’s attempts to hold off the vote for the creation of a Republic army. After Yoda commented how the future was being clouded by the dark side of the Force, Amidala entered the office along with Senator Bail Organa and senators who were members of the Loyalist Committee. Palpatine got up from his chair and looked out the office window as Amidala debated with Yoda and the other Jedi about the attempt on her life and Dooku’s involvement. The Chancellor then suggested to Yoda that Amidala be placed under their protection which the senator rejected claiming the situation was not serious enough to warrant the Jedi's involvement. Palpatine then suggested Kenobi as a possible solution to which Windu said it was possible and Amidala finally agreed to. As the Jedi left the office, Palpatine returned to his chair.[1]

The next day, Palpatine met privately with Skywalker in the office and agreed to talk with Amidala about leaving Coruscant and return to Naboo for her own safety. The two spoke before the office's window and the Palpatine praised Skywalker for being the assignment of protecting the senator. Turning from the window, Skywalker and Palpatine made their way across the office towards the entrance as Palpatine continued to laud Skywalker with accolades.[1]

Several days later, Skywalker relayed Kenobi's message about the Separatists preparing for war to the Chancellor's office for the Jedi, Palpatine and the members of the Loyalist Committee to watch on the office's holoprojector. Windu used the holoprojector to instruct Skywalker to protect Amidala while the Jedi dealt with Dooku.[1]
