- "We are all the Republic."
- ―Lina Soh
Lina Soh was a female Supreme Chancellor of the Galactic Republic during the High Republic Era, holding office around 232 BBY. Jedi Master Avar Kriss noted that Soh appeared to be far more delicate than she actually was.
Elected prior to the Great Disaster, Soh oversaw a period of great expansion. Soh established outreach programs, such as the Starlight Beacon, to bring the worlds of the Outer Rim Territories into the Republic. At the chancellor's request, the Jedi Order also established its own outposts in the far reaches of the galaxy, to provide assistance to any group or world who might require it. These outposts were built to function autonomously from the authority of the Jedi Temple on Coruscant and, by extension, that of the Republic itself.
Companions[edit | edit source]
Lina Soh had two pet targons, Matari and Voru. The twin targons were closely bonded to Lina Soh and were loyal to her in a way no other being was. They acted as bodyguards, companions, and were said to have never left her side. Lina Soh often spoke to Voru and Matari as she verbally thought through her ideas or plans. While the targons did not possess the ability to understand basic, they could sense and understand her feelings and emotions.
