Rise of the Empire era

Gume Saam: "I like this plan."
Nix Card: "No one cares what you think."
―Gume Saam and Nix Card[src]

Gume Saam was a male Ishi Tib Senator who represented Tibrin in the Galactic Senate of the Republic during the Clone Wars. He was also a member of the group opposing Supreme Chancellor Palpatine's growing power. During the war, he was affiliated with the Techno Union and swayed toward the interests of the Confederacy of Independent Systems.

"I know some people who could do something about her."
―Gume Saam, speaking of Padmé Amidala[src]

During the Separatist Crisis, several systems began to split off from the Republic and joined with Count Dooku in the year 24 BBY. For this reason, the call was for protection from the Separatists in the senate which Supreme Chancellor Palpatine eventually forms a Grand Army of the Republic, consisting of clone troopers, summoning war. In 22 BBY, shortly after the Battle of Geonosis at the onset of the Clone Wars, Senator Gume Saam overlooked the deployment of clone troopers leaving the planet Coruscant prepared for combat.[1]

As a senator, Gume Saam tried to push through a bill that would deregulate the banks. It would allow the InterGalactic Banking Clan to open new lines of credit, without the approval of the entire Galactic Senate. During the vote for the bill, the Confederate General Grievous launched an attack on a prominent Coruscant power generator. The attack was confirmed as a Separatist attack, and Saam was able to pass the bill.[2]

In 19 BBY, he was present at the Galaxies Opera House alongside, Waks Trode.

After the end of the Clone Wars and the Declaration of a New Order, the former senator became a fugitive, where he was issued with a bounty on his head since at least prior to the Battle of Yavin.[3]

Behind the scenesEdit
