"The last time I went on one of these ransom missions, I spent three weeks in a dungeon."
―Kharrus — (audio) Listen (file info)[3]

Kharrus was a Gran male politician who served as the senator of[3] Kinyen[1] in the Republic Senate during the Clone Wars.[3] He was an ally of fellow Senator Padmé Amidala.[5] When Count Dooku, leader of the Confederacy of Independent Systems, was captured by the pirate Hondo Ohnaka and his gang, Supreme Chancellor Sheev Palpatine sent Senator Kharrus—along with Junior Representative Jar Jar Binks and several clone shock troopers of the Coruscant Guard—to deliver the ransom money to Ohnaka's base on Florrum. However, Kharrus was killed along with two clone pilots when his Nu-class attack/transport shuttle crashed on the planet's surface. He was buried near the crash site by Binks and the surviving clone troopers, who continued the mission in the late senator's stead.[3]
