"But if you don't trust your leaders, isn't that treason?"
"It's every citizen's duty to challenge their leaders, to keep them honest, and hold them accountable if they're not."
―Amis and Ahsoka Tano[3]

Amis was a Mandalorian human male cadet of the Royal Academy of Government on Mandalore during the Clone Wars. In the course of his academic career, he attended classes with several friends, including Korkie Kryze—nephew to Duchess Satine Kryze of the New Mandalorians. Although Amis and his companions managed to expose a black market conspiracy on their homeworld, they were unable to save the Duchess during the rise of Death Watch.


"But I thought you said it was the duty of every citizen to expose corrupt officials."
"I'm only saying that you should take this slowly."
―Amis and Ahsoka Tano[3]

During the Clone Wars, Amis was a cadet of the Royal Academy of Government[1] in Sundari, the capital city of the planet Mandalore.[3] As a student, he was groomed for a political career in order to lead the next generation of Mandalorians.[1] In the course of his academic career, he maintained friendships with fellow cadets Lagos, Soniee, and Korkie Kryze—the young nephew of Duchess Satine Kryze of the New Mandalorian government.[3]


During the Clone Wars, Amis studied politics alongside his friends Korkie Kryze, Lagos, and Soniee.

As the war progressed across the galaxy between the Galactic Republic and Confederacy of Independent Systems, Amis and his classmates received a guest speaker from the Jedi OrderPadawan Ahsoka Tano, Jedi Commander of the Grand Army of the Republic and apprentice of Jedi General Anakin Skywalker. Inspired by Tano's lecture, Korkie convinced his friends to investigate the food shortage in the city, an activity which Amis preferred over hunger. With Tano's help, they discovered an illegal operation established by Prime Minister Almec, who sought to use the black market trade network as an economic asset for Mandalore. Due to the efforts of Amis and his classmates, Almec was arrested and sent to prison.[3]

In the aftermath of Death Watch's rise to power, Amis aided his friends and the Nite Owls in an attempt to rescue Korkie's deposed aunt. Their plan ultimately failed, however, consequently leading to Satine's execution as the capital became engulfed in a state of civil war.[4]

Personality and traits[]


Amis took up arms to rescue Duchess Satine.

"Let's go down to the warehouse district and see if there really is a food shortage."
"Beats sitting around here listening to my stomach growl."
―Korkie Kryze and Amis[3]

Amis was a human male.[1] As an adolescent, he had blond hair, blue eyes, and light skin.[3] By the time of the New Mandalorian government's collapse, he had a shaved head.[4]

In his time, Amis was one of the most promising cadets of the Royal Academy of Government,[1] a prestigious institution that trained the best and brightest of Mandalorian youth to pursue careers in politics.[5] Amongst his fellow cadets, Amis was noted for his flippant attitude and high-spirited nature. However, he was also highly intelligent[1] and loyal to his friends,[3] having assisted them in revealing the corruption at the highest level of Mandalorian politics.[1]

While initially growing up under the pacifist ideology of the New Mandalorians, Amis continued to support his comrades and took up arms in an attempt to rescue the Duchess Satine from Death Watch custody after their takeover of Mandalore.[4]

Behind the scenes[]

Amis first appeared in "The Academy," the sixth episode in Season Three of the Star Wars: The Clone Wars television series.[3] He was portrayed by voice actor Omid Abtahi, who reprised the role in the fifth season episode "The Lawless."[4]
