Nee Alavar was a female Human that served as a senator in the Senate of the Galactic Republic during the Clone Wars. Senator Alavar was part of a retinue of officials and Jedi who greeted Supreme Chancellor Palpatine when he arrived to the Senate Building after the Battle of Coruscant.
Alavar also became part of the Delegation of 2,000, a group of senators that were concerned about Palpatine's growing powers and formed the Petition of 2,000, an official protest against Palpatine. One day after Palpatine transformed the Republic into the Galactic Empire, sixty three members of the Delegation were arrested on charges of treason.
Behind the scenesEdit
Nee Alavar appeared only briefly in canon in Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith. Portrayed by New Zealander actress Rena Owen, her character's name was given in the film's closing credits. Owen previously voiced the computer-generated character Taun We in Star Wars: Episode II Attack of the Clones. In deleted material from the Revenge of the Sith film, Alavar also appeared with the Delegation of 2,000 addressing Supreme Chancellor Palpatine, a scene which was featured more prominently in the film's novelization. The deleted scene and novelization are not considered canon in the new continuity.
