Nee Alavar was a female Human that served as a senator in the Senate of the Galactic Republic during the Clone Wars. Senator Alavar was part of a retinue of officials and Jedi who greeted Supreme Chancellor Palpatine when he arrived to the Senate Building after the Battle of Coruscant.[1]

Alavar also became part of the Delegation of 2,000, a group of senators that were concerned about Palpatine's growing powers and formed the Petition of 2,000, an official protest against Palpatine.[2] One day after Palpatine transformed the Republic into the Galactic Empire, sixty three members of the Delegation were arrested on charges of treason.[3]

Behind the scenesEdit
