"I like this plan."
"No one cares what you think."
―Gume Saam and Nix Card[src]

Gume Saam was a male Ishi Tib senator who represented Tibrin in the Galactic Senate of the Republic during the Clone Wars. He was also a member of the group opposing Supreme Chancellor Palpatine's growing power. During the war, he was affiliated with the Techno Union and swayed toward the interests of the Confederacy of Independent Systems.

During the Separatist Crisis, several systems began to split off from the Republic and joined with Count Dooku in the year 24 BBY. This led to increasing tensions between the Republic and the growing Separatist movement, eventually resulting in the formation of the Grand Army of the Republic, consisting of clone troopers bred on Kamino.

In 22 BBY, shortly after the Battle of Geonosis, Senator Gume Saam overlooked the deployment of clone troopers leaving the planet Coruscant ill-prepared for combat.[1]

As a Senator, Gume Saam tried to push through a bill that would deregulate the banks, allowing the InterGalactic Banking Clan to open new lines of credit without the approval of the Galactic Senate. During the vote for the bill, the Confederate General Grievous launched an attack on a prominent Coruscant power generator. The attack was confirmed as a Separatist attack, and Saam was able to pass the bill.[2]

In 19 BBY, he was present at the Galaxies Opera House alongside Waks Trode.

After the Clone Wars and the Declaration of a New Order, the former Senator became a fugitive, and a bounty on his head was issued prior to the Battle of Yavin.[3]
