Mina Bonteri was a female human native to the planet Onderon. Prior to the Clone Wars, Bonteri served as a mentor to Padmé Amidala on Naboo, and the two became close friends. During the war, Bonteri was the senator of Onderon in the Separatist Senate. Following Bonteri's death, her son, Lux Bonteri, filled her position.


Before the outbreak of the Clone Wars, Bonteri was Senator for her homeworld of Onderon.[6] She and her husband had a son, Lux. Bonteri also mentored Senator Padmé Amidala of Naboo and became her friend.[5]

Clone WarsEdit


Mina Bonteri addresses the Separatist Senate.

By the time the Clone Wars broke out, Bonteri had joined Count Dooku's Confederacy of Independent Systems as a senator for its senate. She and her son then moved to the Confederacy's Capital, Raxus where they had a home in Raxulon. Bonteri then lost her husband when he was killed during a battle on Aargonar.[5]

Bonteri was later contacted by Amidala who wished to discuss a peace initiative between the Galactic Republic and Confederacy. During a session of the Confederate Senate, Bonteri called for a vote to open the peace talks with Republic. However, Bonteri's efforts were thwarted by General Grievous's terrorist attack on Coruscant on the orders of Dooku.[5]


Bonteri was then killed in an apparent Republic attack, but Republic spies confirmed that it was Dooku's agents who killed her.[3] Her son tried to avenge his mother's death by briefly joining the Death Watch.[7] He then returned to Onderon and joined the rebels in freeing the planet[6] and return Ramsis Dendup to the throne.[8] He then became Senator for Onderon in the Republic Senate.[9]
