Amita Fonti was a female Gossam senator who served in the Separatist Senate during the Clone Wars, a conflict fought between the Galactic Republic and Confederacy of Independent Systems. At least one year into the war, she was present on the Separatist capital planet of Raxus during Senator Mina Bonteri's proposal to open peace talks with the Republic and, alongside senators Bec Lawise and Voe Atell, Fonti participated in a peace conference with them on the neutral world of Mandalore, though the negotiations ultimately collapsed.
Amita Fonti had light blue skin and blue eyes and wore a set of four golden neck rings and a brown cap, as well as a long red, white, and black gown on Raxus and a nearly identical one on Mandalore that swapped the red for blue.
Behind the scenesEdit
Amita Fonti first appeared, albeit unidentified, in "Heroes on Both Sides," the tenth episode of the canon animated series Star Wars: The Clone Wars' third season, which originally aired on November 19, 2010. She was later identified in the episode guide for "Heroes on Both Sides" available on StarWars.com, though it did not specify which Gossam was Fonti. A Gossam senator later confirmed to be Fonti herself appeared in "A Friend in Need," the fourteenth episode of The Clone Wars' fourth season, which originally aired on January 13, 2012. Her model was later retextured as a Gossam vendor for use in "The Disappeared, Part II," the ninth episode of The Clone Wars' sixth and final season, which originally aired on March 1, 2014.
