The Senate Guard was a security force used by the New Republic to protect the New Republic's Galactic Senate and the Chancellor.

DescriptionEdit

The New Republic's Senate Guards wore golden helmets and were equipped with shock-lances and blasters. Senate Guards were used to guard the Galactic Senate on Chandrila, state functions, and Imperial prisoners. They did not match the fighting prowess and discipline of the Royal Guards.[1] Other Senate Guards wore red helmets with white plumes. They also had the authority to stop ships from leaving Chandrila.[2]

HistoryEdit

The New Republic's Senate Guard were formed presumably after the Battle of Endor. Besides guarding the Galactic Senate and official functions, guardsmen like Windom Traducier were also used to guard Imperial prisoners. In 5 ABY, Several Senate Guards were deployed for crowd control and security purposes during Liberation Day celebrations held to celebrate the liberation of former Rebel Alliance prisoners from Ashmead's Lock prison on Kashyyyk.[1]

Several guardsmen tried to prevent Temmin Wexley and his B1 battle droid Mister Bones from entering the Senate Plaza since the plaza was full. Temmin wanted to warn his mother Norra that his father Brentin Lore Wexley was not right. When one of the guards sheathed a shock-lance, Mister Bones attacked the guard and knocked him out with his own weapon. While Temmin and Mister Bones fought with the guards, the Ashmead's Lock prisoners began attacking New Republic officials and military commanders including Chancellor Mon Mothma and General Crix Madine. These prisoners were being controlled by inorganic biochips that had been implanted by Fleet Admiral Gallius Rax.[1]

Five Senate Guards were also assigned to guard the Imperial dignitary Grand Admiral Rae Sloane and her entourage in the Old Gather-House. During the attack, Sloane's two Royal Guards eliminated their guards under her orders. Meanwhile, other Senate Guards used blasters to stun the Ashmead's Lock prisoners. Senate Guards also tried to apprehend Sloane but she managed to escape offworld with Brentin to hunt down Rax. Windom was later arrested by the New Republic Security Bureau, who discovered his role in using a transponder to send signals which activated the Ashmead's Lock prisoners' biochips.[1]

Chancellor Mothma's rival Senator Tolwar Wartol later dispatched two Senate Guards to stop Temmin Wexley and Sinjir Rath Velus from leaving aboard the Millennium Falcon, claiming they had the Chancellor's authority. This was an attempt by Wartol to create a rift between Sinjir, Han Solo, and Princess Leia Organa.[2]
