Scipio was a planet in the Core Worlds.

HistoryEdit

The planet was at some point host to a warrior culture, whose influence could still be seen in the inhabitants' clothing styles which mimicked armor. The people also used tattoos to indicate status.[3]

Even before the outbreak of the Clone Wars, Scipio became an important world for the Galactic Republic, being one of the centre planets of the InterGalactic Banking Clan. This commerce guild build its massive vaults on the Planet, where the Bank profits were safely held.

Senator Rush Clovis represented the InterGalactic Banking Clan from 25 BBY to 22 BBY until he was arrested by fellow senator Lott Dod on Cato Neimoidia. In 20 BBY, Rush Clovis became the head of the Banking Clan conglomerate, after the council of five was arrested for corruption and fraud.

To ensure the Banking clan from not becoming corrupted again, both the Galactic Republic and the Separatists agreed to send ambasadors to the Planet, to secure both parties' agendas. Padmé Amidala was sent to represent the Galactic Republic and Bec Lawise was sent on the behalf of the Confederacy. Clovis's appointment as the head of the InterGalactic Banking Clan did not last long as he was killed during the Separatist attack on the Planet, sacrificing himself to save Padmé Amidala.

The clone trooper commander Thorn perished on this planet in the year 20 BBY during the attack and short occupation by the Confederacy of Independent Systems.
