- "Ion and I have some issues to discuss with Senator Chuchi first."
- ―Baron Papanoida
Ion Papanoida was a male Pantoran who lived during the Clone Wars. He was the son of Pantora's chairman, Baron Notluwiski Papanoida, and was the brother of Chi Eekway Papanoida and Che Amanwe Papanoida.
Ion accompanied his father to Coruscant, where he and his father spoke with Senator Chuchi about Trade Federation blockade of their planet. He informed her that their were crying out to join the Separatists.
When his two sisters were kidnapped by the Separatists, Ion Papanoida assisted his father in investigating his sisters' kidnapping. He then accompanied his father to Tatooine to hunt down the Rodian bounty hunter Greedo, the one responsible for the kidnapping. He accompanied him to Jabba's Palace, where they proved in front of Jabba the Hutt that Greedo had indeed kidnapped the baron's daughters. They led Greedo to the Chalmun's Spaceport Cantina, where his accomplice released Chi Eekway Papanoida. The situation culminated in a shooting match when Greedo initiated a fight between the baron and the other bounty hunters. Ion Papanoida was almost killed but was saved by his sister, Che Amanwe. However, Greedo escaped, but the Papanoida family was reunited.
