Clu Lesser was a Muun male banker who lived during the years prior to the rise of the Galactic Empire. Clu Lesser was the leader of the Core Five and the InterGalactic Banking Clan when it was based on Scipio.
Clu Lesser was a member of the Core Five on Scipio. He met with Padmé Amidala and Rush Clovis during a time when the latter two were investigating allegations of corruption within the Banking Clan. During an inspection of the Main Vault, Amidala stole the plans that proved this to be true. Nix Card, working for Darth Sidious, got the Core Five into trouble by blaming them for the results of the previous event. Rush Clovis and Amidala later returned to Scipio, where Clu Lesser and the Core Five were put on trial.
