"The Resistance? Those extremists? What have you gotten yourself mixed up in this time?"
―Hamato Xiono, to Kazuda Xiono[src]

Hamato Xiono was a human male senator in the New Republic Senate and the father of Kazuda Xiono. During the latter years of Republic rule in the galaxy, Senator Xiono facilitated his son's entry into a New Republic Defense Force academy which, in turn, led to Kazuda's service in the New Republic Defense Fleet's Starfighter Corps.


"As usual, you always need help. My help."
―Hamato Xiono, to Kazuda Xiono[src]

Senator Hamato Xiono was a politician who served in the Galactic Senate of the New Republic years after the Galactic Civil War. He was also the father of Kazuda Xiono, whose service to the Republic Hamato facilitated by supporting his son's enrollment in a New Republic Defense Force academy. He then ensured that Kazuda's training was put to use by helping him join the New Republic Defense Fleet, allowing Kazuda to pursue his aspirations of becoming a highly skilled pilot.[2]

Hamato Xiono

Senator Xiono is contacted by his son, Kazuda.

In 34 ABY, Kazuda contacted Senator Xiono shortly after his rendezvous with the Resistance during the waning months of the cold war. Believing the First Order, a successor state to the Galactic Empire, threatened the Republic's place in the galaxy, Kazuda decided to join the Resistance but also felt compelled to inform Hamato about his decision. However, Kazuda ultimately changed his mind, deciding to keep his new connection a secret from his father, who regarded General Leia Organa as a leader of extremists.[2]

Sometime later, the First Order rose from the Unknown Regions and proclaimed the end of the New Republic, firing Starkiller Base's superlaser and destroying the Hosnian system. Upon witnessing this, Kazuda became horrified, fearing that his father was gone, along with his friends and the Senate.[4] Fortunately for him, Xiono and the rest of his family had survived the cataclysm by being off-world.[3] Following the attack on Castilon from Castilon[4] and the Resistance's evacuation from D'Qar,[5] Senator Xiono contacted his son via a special coded message. He assured Kazuda that their family had survived, but the First Order had identified Kazuda as a spy. Senator Xiono warned his son that bounty hunters would be after him.[3]

Personality and traitsEdit

"I help you get into the Academy. I help you get into the Navy. I help you get everything you wanted. So what is it that you want this time?"
―Hamato Xiono, to Kazuda Xiono[src]

Hamato Xiono was a human male. Coming from a position of wealth and influence, the senator was able to support his son Kazuda Xiono's aspirations to become a New Republic pilot. Although Hamato was willing to aid Kazuda in his endeavors, he felt that his son relied on him for everything—from entering the academy to joining the New Republic Navy.[2]

Senator Xiono regarded the Resistance as a band of extremists and was disturbed by his son mentioning their organization. Ultimately, Kazuda kept his relationship with the Resistance a secret from his father, hoping to achieve something on his own without the senator's help for once.[2]

Behind the scenesEdit

Hamato Xiono is a character created and developed for Star Wars Resistance. He had a very specific costume design in order to better establish the character as a relatively wealthy Senator with military ties at a moment's notice.[6] Tzi Ma provided the voice for the politician.[2]
