Amita Fonti[4] was a female Gossam[1] senator that represented the Commerce Guild[3] in the Separatist Senate during the Clone Wars, a conflict fought between the Galactic Republic and Confederacy of Independent Systems.[2] Alongside Speaker Bec Lawise and Senator Voe Atell of the Corporate Alliance, she guided talks in the legislative body.[3] In the year 21 BBY,[5] Fonti was present on the Separatist capital planet of Raxus Secundus during Senator Mina Bonteri's proposal to open peace talks with the Republic.[2] In 20 BBY,[6] she, Atell, and Lawise participated in a peace conference with Republic representatives on the neutral world of Mandalore, though the negotiations ultimately collapsed.[7]

Like other corporate-allied senators in the Separatist Senate, Fonti had little interest in peace.[3] She light blue skin and blue eyes[2] and wore a set of four golden neck rings[7] and a brown cap, as well as a long red, white, and black gown on Raxus[2] and a nearly identical one on Mandalore that swapped the red for blue.[7]
