"Perhaps I am the most influential man on Rodia, Lolo, but after all the mistakes I've made, peace is what matters to me now."
―Onaconda Farr, to Lolo Purs[8]

Onaconda Farr was a Rodian male politician who represented his homeworld of Rodia and the greater Savareen sector in the Republic Senate during the final decades of the Galactic Republic Era. Though a complicated and self-conscious individual in private, Farr was an outspoken advocate for democracy and progressive causes and a devoted servant to his people, always keeping their best interests at heart. During the Clone Wars, a pan-galactic conflict between the Republic and its splinter state, the Confederacy of Independent Systems, Farr became a leading anti-war senator and worked with his allies to bring about a peaceful resolution to the conflict. Farr suffered personal crises throughout the war, and the mistakes he made trying to do what was right would lead to his assassination.

In the years before and during the Separatist Crisis, Farr worked alongside a group of like-minded senators, such as Bail Organa of Alderaan, Mon Mothma of Chandrila, and Padmé Amidala of Naboo, a close friend and protégé of his, to maintain loyalty and democracy in the Republic. Early in the Clone Wars, however, Farr faced a crisis of faith when Rodia became a target for piracy and the Republic failed to deliver aid. Desperate to help his people, Farr made a deal with the Confederacy through Viceroy Nute Gunray of the Trade Federation, reluctantly granting them the ability to exploit the Savareen sector in return for much-needed supplies. He became further troubled with his decision, however, when he learned that Viceroy Gunray additionally wanted him to hand Amidala over to the Separatists. Though Farr initially complied, Amidala convinced him to turn on Gunray, whom they had arrested. Though ashamed of himself, Farr was welcomed back into the Republic, which sent relief aid to Rodia.

For the remainder of his life, Farr was a staunch loyalist to the Republic but became a leading supporter of anti-war causes and helped his allies launch campaigns to defeat Senate bills they opposed. Because of his stances, Farr was targeted by militarist senators in propaganda and faced threats to his safety. Though Farr and his allies successfully voted down a bill that would extend executive overreach, they failed to defeat two bills that deregulated the InterGalactic Banking Clan and expanded the Republic Military. Hoping to keep the latter from coming into effect, Farr and Amidala introduced counter-legislation that would reduce military spending and worked hard to gather support. While celebrating what seemed to be a coming victory, however, Farr suddenly died of what appeared to be heart failure. Investigations by the Coruscant Security Force and his faction revealed that Farr had been poisoned by his aide, Lolo Purs, in retaliation for his contract with the Confederacy. The late Farr's allies pushed to pass his budget reduction, but the motion failed in the Senate.

Biography[]

Pre-war career[]

Relief efforts[]

"Uncle Ono, you are very important to me. We've been friends since I was a little girl, when you were my father's strongest ally in the Senate."
―Padmé Amidala, to Onaconda Farr[4]

Onaconda Farr was born on the planet Rodia,[1] the ancient homeworld of his species, the Rodians, in the galaxy's Savareen sector in the Outer Rim Territories.[9] Farr eventually came to be elected to the Senate of the Galactic Republic,[1] a democratic union that governed much of the galaxy from its capital planet of Coruscant.[9] As the senator of the Savareen sector, Farr represented not only[10] his homeworld[1] of Rodia but several other planets, including Christophsis, Nelvaan, Zaadja,[10] Savareen,[11] and Yerbana.[12] Aside from a few population centers such as Rodia, the Savareen sector, which sat at the crucial intersection of the Corellian Run and Triellus Trade Route hyperspace lanes, was mostly comprised of desolate planets pocked with mining outposts and low-tech species.[10]

Queenamidala

Onaconda Farr was a mentor and close friend of Padmé Amidala (pictured), who would go on to be elected as the Queen of Naboo.

Due to his status as a senator, Farr resided in Rodia's[4] Senatorial Palace,[13] which was situated in the planet's swamps underneath a protective dome.[4] Like other senators,[13] Farr employed a team of aides to serve at his side, including Pa Dua, Tox Don,[14] Silood, and Lolo Purs.[8] Farr sponsored and mentored Purs' political ambitions,[15] and she later ascended to the role of Rodia's Junior Representative in the Senate.[8] During his career, Farr was involved in relief work, aiding people and planets plagued by disasters. His participation in relief efforts acquainted him with[16] an educator, builder, and relief worker[17] from the planet Naboo named Ruwee Naberrie. Farr and Naberrie soon became good friends, with Farr,[4] one of the most respected members at the time,[15] acting as Naberrie's closest ally in the Senate.[4] Due to their work together, Farr soon grew close with Naberrie's family,[16] sharing a close bond with his youngest daughter, Padmé, beginning when she was a young girl.[4]

Because of his close relationship with the Naberrie family,[16] Farr was treated as though he was an "uncle" of Padmé's, who affectionately referred to him as "Uncle Ono."[4] Though Ruwee and his wife, Jobal, wanted Padmé to follow an artistic career, their daughter began fostering a talent for oration and an affinity for public service at a young age.[6] Farr mentored Padmé during her childhood, teaching her political skills, such as downplaying her strengths to maintain the element of surprise.[8] In 39 BBY, Padmé, then aged seven,[2] joined Farr and Ruwee in their relief work and traveled with them on a mission to the planet Shadda-Bi-Boran.[16] Shadda-Bi-Boran's sun was dying, causing ecological disaster and necessitating the relocation of the planet's populace. Although the relief effort successfully evacuated the entire population, attempts to properly replicate their homeworld's environment failed, leading the refugees to die out soon after relocation.[6]

Invasion of Naboo[]

"It's hard enough being new, and as much as I would appreciate your guidance and mentorship, I don't wish to be seen as dependent on my father's connections, amongst other things."
"It's a smart move, even if we both wish otherwise. I was, of course, quite close with Valorum."
―Padmé Amidala and Onaconda Farr[6]

Despite her parent's misgivings, Padmé eventually entered politics, serving in the Galactic Senate's Apprentice Legislature program[18] and eventually running a successful campaign to be elected Queen of Naboo[19] in 32 BBY,[9] after which she became known as Queen Padmé Amidala. Farr and Amidala stayed close, and the Rodian met the Naboo Royal Handmaidens assigned to her, including Sabé, who grew fond of him.[6] That same year,[9] the Republic was under the leadership of Supreme Chancellor Finis Valorum,[14] a progressive politician[20] whose administration was hampered by heightened bureaucracy, corruption, and inaction.[14] Despite Valorum's ineptitude, he was a well-meaning man, and Farr was among his supporters in the Senate and had a close relationship with him.[6] Valorum's reign would come to a tumultuous end, however, when the Senate passed sweeping tax reforms under Prop 31-814D, which was designed to institute regulations on the Trade Federation's monopoly on Outer Rim trade routes.[21]

Vuutun Palaa canon

The Trade Federation blockade of Naboo (pictured) set the stage for the fall of Onaconda Farr's political ally and the reigning Supreme Chancellor, Finis Valorum.

After the repeated failures of Federation-backed bills meant to overturn Prop 31-814D,[19] the Viceroy of the Trade Federation, Nute Gunray, blockaded Naboo in protest. When negotiations failed, the Federation launched an outright invasion of Naboo, forcing Queen Amidala to evacuate and journey to Coruscant to plead for aid directly to the Senate. The Senate convened in an emergency session to hear Naboo's senator, Sheev Palpatine, and Amidala testify about the invasion of their world. Trade Federation representative Lott Dod disputed Amidala's claims and objected to a motion to solve the situation with immediacy, arguing that the Naboo lacked concrete evidence. He called for a commission to be appointed to verify Amidala's allegations, a proposal seconded by Senator Aks Moe of the Congress of Malastare. As advised by his Vice Chair, Mas Amedda, Valorum conceded to their terms. Outraged, Amidala called for a Vote of No Confidence in Valorum's chancellery, to the shock of the Senate.[14]

Though unprepared for the sudden Vote of No Confidence, the Senate moved with surprising immediacy, and in a matter of hours, Valorum was voted out of office. Although he was a friend and ally of the Chancellor, Farr chose to support the motion in Amidala's name but lamented Valorum's departure and the circumstances of how his career would end. Despite this disappointment,[15] Farr's relationship with Padmé remained unchanged.[6] With the passage of the Vote of No Confidence, the Office of the Supreme Chancellor was vacated, triggering a snap election for Valorum's successor. The candidates were Senator Bail Antilles of Alderaan, Senator Ainlee Teem of Malastare, and Senator Palpatine, who ran on a promise to remove corruption in the Senate and won[14] by a landslide.[15] Palpatine assumed the office of Supreme Chancellor following the Battle of Naboo, in which Amidala successfully led her people in repelling the Trade Federation occupation.[14]

An ally in Amidala[]

"I don't think it's a bad thing. You are hardly naïve. Or at least, you're aware of the subjects that you are naïve about, which is more than I can say about myself, I am sure. Being a good and honest person doesn't make you a poorer senator. You'll find your own balance."
"What if I don't do it fast enough?"
"You have plenty of time."
―Onaconda Farr and Padmé Amidala[6]
FarrPursuitofPeace

Farr was a member of a progressive political faction alongside Bail Organa and Mon Mothma.

In the years following the Invasion of Naboo, Farr became involved in a faction of progressives in the Senate, allying himself with like-minded politicians such as Bail Organa of Alderaan and Mon Mothma of Chandrila. Their caucus devoted themselves to upholding and defending the democratic norms at a time when those pillars were in danger of being eroded. Though their partisan activity made them somewhat controversial, the trio and their other allies garnered some renown and joined various Senate committees. Farr and Mothma were members of a committee that dealt with the transportation of construction materials, which Organa chaired. The group also became known for being publicly at odds with Chancellor Palpatine, often disagreeing with his actions.[6]

By 28 BBY,[2] Farr, Organa, Mothma, and others in their circle had grown increasingly concerned with maintaining loyalty in the Republic, seeing a rise in secrecy among some legislators as a threat to the Republic's democratic ideals. Chief among these senators was Mina Bonteri, who represented the planet Onderon and had begun receiving heavily encrypted messages in private. In attempts to learn what these unknown messages entailed, Farr and his allies attempted to speak with Bonteri about her secrecy, but Bonteri drew further away from her colleagues instead. Farr and the members of his faction suspected that Bonteri was involved in treasonous or illicit activities but, without any proof, could only warily tread around her and speak about their concerns in private.[6]

Also that year, Amidala's second term as Queen of Naboo ended, but at the behest of her successor, Queen Réillata, she accepted an offer to take the Chommell sector's seat in the Galactic Senate after Senator Oshadam stepped down from the position. Although he was eager to work alongside Amidala, Farr decided to maintain a distance from her when she assumed office, believing that she would want to establish herself on Coruscant without looking as though she was relying on her father's contacts. He also considered his friendship with former Chancellor Valorum, reasoning that it would appear odd if she immediately began working with an ally of the man she helped remove from power. Though he, Organa, and Mothma wanted to approach her and invite her to join their faction, they were dismayed when Amidala and Bonteri formed a relationship.[6]

OnacondaAmidala-SM

After maintaining a distance during her early tenure, Farr and Amidala first met as colleagues at a gala hosted by Mon Mothma.

Wanting a forum to discuss Bonteri without scrutiny, Mothma decided to host a gala at one of Coruscant's public biome gardens. Knowing that Amidala had become a controversial figure and would command the attention of the newsnets, Mothma invited her to the gala to act as a distraction while she, Farr, Organa, and a few other allies would escape notice and talk. Farr wore an iridescent blue suit to the gala, where he met with Amidala for the first time since before she had become a senator several months earlier. After warmly greeting each other, they expressed their disappointment in having not met beforehand, but Farr commended Amidala's choice to maintain a distance initially. Padmé told him that she was settling into her office well, and Farr responded that enough time had elapsed for her to call on him if she needed anything. At that moment, someone on one of the upper tiers of the garden called down to Farr, who politely bade farewell to Padmé before taking his leave.[6]

Unbeknownst to Farr, he had not spoken to Padmé but had met with Sabé instead. Padmé, discerning that Mothma had invited her to the gala to act as a distraction, asked Sabé to portray her while she disguised herself as a handmaiden to learn more. Later in the evening, Farr joined Mothma, Organa, and several other senators in the garden's secluded rainforest section, where the thick shrubbery and foliage would keep holorecorders away. Free from public attention, Farr brought up Senator Bonteri's encrypted messages and opined that they could not trust her. Organa mentioned that Bonteri was attempting to recruit Amidala, but he and Farr disagreed with Mothma when she suggested that Bonteri could be successful. Farr informed Mothma and Organa that he believed Amidala and Naboo would stay loyal to the Republic. Hearing this, Organa decided they should risk asking Amidala to join their faction before the group parted ways.[6]

AmidalaFarrMothma-SM

After Amidala joined their faction, Farr and Mothma used their contacts to free her of libelous press.

Shortly after leaving Farr and the others, Organa ran into "Amidala," in reality Sabé, and recognized Padmé disguised as a handmaiden. He and Padmé walked through the gardens late in the night, where he convinced her to join his faction, promising that he, Farr, and Mothma were trustworthy allies. Over the following six months, Amidala fell in with the trio and, in return for her partnership, Farr and Mothma used their contacts to clear the negative press that had plagued her senatorship since her election. Although Amidala had chosen to side with the progressive faction, she was still unsure of her positions, a stance that clashed with Mothma's hardline politics. Padmé joined the committee for the transportation of construction materials, where she and Mothma consistently argued and debated, especially over the armament of Republic supply ships to curb piracy.[6]

Because she was now in an open political relationship with Farr, Padmé often came to him for advice, knowing she could air her grievances freely to an old family friend. Following one debate with Mothma, Amidala sought Farr out, wanting his guidance on how she should move forward. She had been having difficulty cementing her positions and struggled to understand her public and private personas, and she told Farr about her insecurities. Farr told her that it was alright for her to be unsure of herself, emphasizing that it was better to be aware of what subjects she was naïve on than to ignore them entirely. He reassured her that being honest about herself and her opinions did not make her a poorer senator and that she would find a balance between her public and private lives. When Amidala asked what she would do if she didn't do so fast enough, Farr insisted that she had plenty of time to figure herself out.[6]

The Separatist Crisis[]

"It is with great reluctance that I have agreed to this calling. I love democracy. I love the Republic. The power you give me I will lay down when this crisis has abated."
―Supreme Chancellor Palpatine declares his emergency powers temporary, which Farr applauds[5]

Despite Farr and his faction's best efforts,[6] the growing disloyalty and disarray among members of the Republic led to a major rift[10] in 24 BBY[2] when Count Dooku of Serenno, a former Jedi Master, denounced the Republic as a futile enterprise rife with corruption and favoritism that harmed outlying star systems to the benefit of the Core Worlds in the Raxus Address.[10] As had been feared by Farr and his allies,[6] thousands of dissatisfied member systems embarked on a mass exodus from the Republic to join the Confederacy of Independent Systems, a new alternative galactic government headed by Dooku.[5] Among those who absconded from the Senate was Mina Bonteri.[22] Amidst this crisis, Farr joined Organa, Amidala, and Mothma as members of the Loyalists, a loose faction of senators[23] who promoted loyalty to the Republic and aided Chancellor Palpatine in maintaining cohesion.[24] Though Loyalists, Farr's faction dissented from fully supporting the passage of the Emergency Powers Act,[23] a constitutional amendment that allowed Palpatine to remain in office after his term expired so he could combat the growing Separatism.[25]

RodianSenators

Farr and his aides applaud Chancellor Palpatine's promise to lay down his emergency powers once the Separatist Crisis ended.

As the Confederacy continued to expand, the threat of conflict between the Republic and its splinter state loomed, and the Senate began debating the necessity of raising a proper military as a precaution if the crisis did lead to open war. A bill was introduced in the Senate[5] that same year,[2] entitled the Military Creation Act, which would give Supreme Chancellor Palpatine the ability to commission a Grand Army of the Republic. Amidala and Organa emerged as the leading faces of the opposition to the contentious bill, and Amidala spent almost a year fighting to defeat it. Amidala's opposition to the Military Creation Act, however, made her a target for assassination, and on the day the Senate was scheduled to vote on the bill[5] in 22 BBY,[9] her ship was bombed when it landed on Coruscant. Though Amidala survived the attack, another attempt was made on her life, and she was removed from Coruscant to keep her safe.[5]

Investigating the assassination attempts on Amidala's life, Jedi Knight Obi-Wan Kenobi discovered an army of clone troopers on the planet Kamino made for the Republic by the native Kaminoans, which he reported back to Coruscant. With this information, Vice Chair Amedda manipulated Naboo's Junior Representative, Gungan Jar Jar Binks, into proposing an amendment to the Emergency Powers Act that would grant Palpatine's office the ability to raise an army without needing to pass the Military Creation Act. Farr, Tox Don, and Pa Dua were present during the session in which Binks introduced a motion to expand the scope of powers[5] granted to the Office of the Chancellor by the Emergency Powers Act, enabling Palpatine to bypass the Senate entirely and form the Grand Army of the Republic himself.[25] The motion passed the Senate, and Farr watched as Palpatine declared that he would lay down his new authority once the crisis abated, which Farr and his aides applauded. Shortly after the Kaminoan clone army was adopted, the first battle between the Republic and Confederate forces took place on Geonosis, and full-scale war broke out shortly thereafter.[5]

Spark of the Clone Wars[]

Early troubles[]

"Is there anyone I need to avoid politically?"
"No. This is a loyalist party, so everyone there is an ally. Onaconda Farr has been a little strange lately, but we're not worried about it yet, so you can tread carefully around him."
―Sabé and Dormé discuss Farr's troubling behavior[23]

As the war quickly spread across the galaxy,[23] Rodia was one of many planets that began to suffer as the Republic shifted into a wartime state.[4] Hoping to bring the Rodian leadership to its knees, the Separatists sponsored pirate attacks in the system and organized the withdrawal of Trade Federation shipping,[15] leading to a supply shortage on Rodia that began to harm the planet's civilians. As Republic aid became harder and harder for Farr to obtain,[4] he grew distant from his colleagues and close friends in his faction. Many of his longtime associates, including Amidala, recognized a sudden change in their ally and decided to begin treading carefully around him. Amidala, Organa, and Mothma chose to exclude him from some sensitive matters, keeping them secret from all but themselves. Though distant from them, Farr continued to attend events with his faction, including a soirée hosted by Organa at his Coruscant estate shortly after the Battle of Geonosis.[23]

Kharrus-TCWf

Senator Farr meets with Chancellor Palpatine while negotiating a treaty with the Hutts.

During the early days of the war, the Separatists under Dooku seized control of several major hyperspace lanes, separating the Republic from a majority of its clone armies fighting in the Outer Rim. To undo this setback, Chancellor Palpatine sought to secure an alliance with the Hutt Clan, a criminal organization that held control over crucial space lanes that would help the Republic continue to flow across the galaxy. One of Dooku's underlings, Asajj Ventress, kidnapped the son of a powerful Hutt leader, Jabba Desilijic Tiure. Jabba sent out a call to both the Republic and Confederacy, offering an alliance in return for his son. Senator Farr and[26] a veteran diplomat, Senator Kharrus of Kinyen,[1] met with Chancellor Palpatine in his office during the crisis, where Jabba contacted the Supreme Chancellor. Despite Palpatine's assurances that the Jedi would find his son, Jabba threatened the proposed alliance, stating that if the Jedi did not find his son, the Republic would not gain access to Hutt territories. The Jedi were able to locate Jabba's son on the planet Teth and deliver him to Jabba on Tatooine, and the treaty between the Hutt Clan and the Republic went forward as promised.[26]

Because of the Republic's continuing inaction on Rodia's supply crisis, Farr's people faced looming starvation, causing him to believe the Republic had abandoned them. The Senate briefly considered a measure supported by Amidala to send a relief effort to aid the Rodians, but the crucial vote was postponed, solidifying Farr's newfound distrust. Seeing the desperate situation Farr was in, Nute Gunray, the Viceroy of the Trade Federation and a member of the Executive Separatist Council, approached the senator and offered him a contract, promising immediate aid, including food, ships, and protection against future pirate attacks. Unwilling to wait on the Republic any longer, the forlorn Farr signed Gunray's contract.[4] In return for the much-needed supplies, Farr agreed to act as a spy for Count Dooku, cede exploitation rights of the Savareen sector to the Confederacy, and side his homeworld with the Separatists.[10] Though it greatly distressed him, Farr also agreed to Gunray's personal stipulation: turn Amidala over to the Separatists.[4]

A crisis of faith[]

"You speak of friendship I have not witnessed of late. Where was the Republic when our supply ships were destroyed by pirates? Where was the Republic as my people starved? We have been stranded out here without any help at all. I know it is not your fault, but my people starve all the same."
―Onaconda Farr, to Padmé Amidala — (audio) Listen (file info)[4]
Amidala taken hostage

Onaconda Farr reluctantly has Senator Amidala arrested.

Believing that Amidala would ultimately escape custody, likely as part of a high-level prisoner exchange,[27] Farr contacted Amidala and asked her to visit him on Rodia on the pretext of discussing Republic aid. Padmé agreed despite opposition from Chancellor Palpatine and left for Rodia alongside Representative Binks and her protocol droid, C-3PO. When she arrived at Farr's palace, Amidala met with his aide Silood, who brought her to meet with Farr in the palace's courtyard while Binks and C-3PO stayed behind aboard her ship. Padmé greeted Farr in Rodian, and the two shared a brief but warm welcome. Farr expressed his concern that she would not have come, but she protested that she would always support him and his world, both of which were important to her and the Republic. Farr rebuffed the idea that the Republic cared for Rodia, rhetorically asking what the Republic had done when Rodia was attacked by pirates and the planet's people starved. He admitted that he knew it was not Padmé's fault, but pointed out that Rodia was starving either way.[4]

Padmé tried to ease Farr, telling him that the Republic would pass the motion to send relief to Rodia despite the vote's postponement, but Farr apologized, revealing that he had already accepted help from the Gunray and the Confederacy. Shocked and furious, Amidala told Farr that Gunray would only bring the war to Rodia, just as he had to Naboo during the Trade Federation invasion[4] in 32 BBY.[9] Farr dejectedly told her that he had done what he had to for his people, and several battle droids promptly entered the courtyard and surrounded Amidala. Farr activated a hologram of Gunray, who gloated about Amidala's capture. Padmé pulled out her comlink and attempted to contact C-3PO, but the droids gripped her arms and destroyed the device before she could alert him. Seeing Padmé held prisoner, Farr apologized and told her he did not have a choice, but Amidala countered that he always had a choice. She attempted to appeal to her old friend, but Farr was silent as Gunray ordered his droids to take her away. As Amidala was brought away, Gunray thanked Farr for his decision and told him that he would arrive within the hour to deliver the supplies he had promised and collect his prisoner.[4]

OnacondaBattleDroid-BJ

Farr watches sadly as Separatist battle droids put Amidala in prison.

While a squad of battle droids attempted and failed to capture Binks and C-3PO, Farr joined a trio of droids that led Amidala to the small prison atop a tower in his palace. As they approached the complex, Amidala tried to appeal to Farr again and told him that it was not too late to change his mind, but he solemnly ignored her pleas again. When the droids put Amidala inside a cell, Farr lightly protested if the chains they used to restrain her were necessary, and, as Amidala mockingly welcomed the Rodian to the "Separatist way," the droids informed him that it was a request from Gunray himself. Padmé asked Farr if his actions would be worth the price he was paying as the door to her cell was closed, but all Farr could do was look away in shame.[4]

Silood soon arrived at the prison and informed Farr that Gunray had arrived in the system. Farr responded that he would meet the Viceroy when he landed, then asked Silood what had happened with Amidala's companions, and Silood informed Farr that there were no signs of them. Assuming Binks and C-3PO had fled into the jungle, Farr told Silood that their flight would ensure Gunray saw no signs of trouble upon his arrival. Shortly thereafter, Farr, Silood, and a welcoming convoy went to a hangar bay to meet Gunray as his shuttle arrived. Farr expressed gratitude from his people for Gunray's arrival, but the Neimoidian immediately demanded to see Amidala. Obliging, Farr escorted Gunray and their respective retinues toward the detention tower. While they crossed the palace courtyard, however, one of Gunray's droids spotted Binks and C-3PO hiding near a tree. The droid mistook the cloaked Binks as a Jedi, and the frightened Gunray ordered his droids to open fire while Farr looked on shock.[4]

Bombad Jedi

Using Jar Jar Binks, mistaken for a Jedi, as a distraction, Farr stops Viceroy Gunray from having Amidala executed.

Evading blasterfire, Binks managed to slip through a grate into the waters below the palace. Gunray ordered that Farr sound an alarm and demanded that his droids find the "Jedi," then had C-3PO taken into custody. With no sign of Binks, the battle droids left to find the "Jedi," and Gunray ordered Farr to take him to Amidala. Along the way, Farr inquired about when he could expect the supplies Gunray had promised, but Gunray bluntly told Farr that he would not consider Rodia's request until after Amidala's execution. Shocked by this revelation, Farr protested that Amidala could not be executed because she was a prisoner of war, but Gunray rebutted that Farr was under his protection and thus would do what he demanded of them. Realizing that Padmé was right, Farr strayed behind Gunray and walked alongside Silood, who he told he had made a grave mistake. Conversing in Rodian, Farr decided that he and his aides had to appease Gunray to gain the supplies their contract promised but secretly hoped that the Jedi would arrive and help them and Amidala.[4]

At the prison tower, Gunray requested the droids bring Amidala before him, but one of the droid wardens informed him that she had escaped her cell. Just then, Binks, who had climbed the tower to free her, appeared along the walkway to the cell chamber. Gunray again ordered his droids to fire upon the "Jedi," but Binks escaped to the courtyard. There, he again fled into the waters below the palace, while Padmé and C-3PO were discovered nearby and arrested. Unknown to Farr and Gunray, however, C-3PO had managed to contact the Republic's 41st Elite Corps and request help before his capture. Gunray had Amidala and C-3PO lined up against a wall, and a trio of droidekas rolled out and formed an execution squad. Farr pleaded with Gunray to spare them, but Gunray ordered Farr to be silent. As the droidekas prepared to fire, Farr noticed Binks in the distance and pointed him out to Gunray, distracting him.[4]

Palpatine contacts Rodia

Chancellor Palpatine agrees to send relief aid to Rodia.

Gunray had his droids fire at Binks, but a Kwazel Maw the Gungan had befriended underneath the palace rose from the water and attacked the Viceroy's forces. The Kwazel Maw easily destroyed Gunray's droid contingent and barrelled into the Viceroy's ship before he could flee the chaos, during which Farr picked up one of the battle droids' blasters. Binks and Amidala cornered Gunray, who ordered Farr to kill them. Farr and Amidala looked at each other and came to an understanding, and Amidala turned to Gunray, lying that Farr's turn from the Republic had been a ploy to capture him. Confused, Gunray asked Farr what she was talking about, but Farr aimed his blaster at the Viceroy and revoked his decision to join the Separatists. He confirmed to both Amidala and Gunray that he was loyal to the Republic and placed Gunray under arrest.[4]

As the 41st Elite Corps arrived and secured the palace, Gunray warned Farr that he would pay for what he had done. The Republic soldiers took Gunray into custody, and Farr thanked Binks for what he had done. Referring to him as "Bombad," Farr declared that he was either the bravest or most foolish Jedi he had ever met, but the Gungan replied that he was neither. The clones established contact with Chancellor Palpatine, who told Farr that, because of Amidala's attempts to bring Rodia's plight to his attention and the major victory of Gunray's capture, he had sent a convoy of supply ships to the system. He continued and commended every party for their role in the Viceroy's capture. After Palpatine's transmission ended, Farr turned to Amidala and asked if she could forgive him for his mistakes. She disagreed and stated that the Republic should ask him for forgiveness, thanking him for his loyalty and value as an ally.[4] En route to Coruscant to face trial, however, Gunray escaped his Jedi escort with the help of Asajj Ventress, despite the attempts of several Jedi to recapture the Viceroy.[28]

Return to the Republic[]

"Can you ever forgive me, Padmé?"
"It is the Republic that should be asking your forgiveness, my old friend. Far too often, we forget that our most important allies are not the most powerful."
―Farr and Amidala[4]
BailAndOno-SM

Though he grew distant from them early in the war, Farr was welcomed back into the Republic by his old friends, such as Bail Organa.

With Rodia's supply crisis averted and his loyalty to the Republic re-established,[4] Farr fully reintegrated himself into the Galactic Senate.[8] Despite his distance from and tense relationships with Amidala, Organa, and Mothma earlier in the war,[23] Farr's friends welcomed him back, and he dutifully re-joined their causes. Though overcome by guilt and deep regret for his mistakes,[1] Farr applied himself to his work, becoming an outspoken proponent of peace and advocating for a diplomatic solution to the war. Farr's anti-war stances turned him into a target in the militarist campaigns of senators such as Mee Deechi of Umbara and Halle Burtoni of Kamino, who saw the Rodian as an easy mark to use in their fundraising and propaganda.[8] In addition to publicly confronting him, they purposely misrepresented his statements in efforts to discredit him.[15] Though Deechi disagreed with Farr's stances and willingly fundraised off of disparaging him, the Umbaran had a respectful relationship with his colleague despite their differences.[8]

In addition to his support for a peaceful end to the Clone Wars,[8] Farr joined the Council of Neutral Systems, a group of fifteen hundred star systems that advocated for neutrality in wartime.[7] Under the leadership of Duchess Satine Kryze, the ruler of Mandalore, the Council of Neutral Systems afforded member systems the ability to enjoy economic relations with the Republic but offer no support to the war effort.[25] As a member of the organization, Farr would travel to meet with Duchess Satine at her palace in the Mandalorian capital city Sundari to discuss their efforts.[7] In 21 BBY,[2] Amidala was asked by the Jedi High Council to spy on Senator Rush Clovis of Scipio, who was suspected of treason.[29] Hoping for help discerning Clovis's loyalties from a trusted friend, Amidala looked for input from Farr.[15] Farr and Amidala later dined separately in the Senate Building's dining commons. As Amidala met with Clovis, Farr dined with[29] a fellow member of the Council of Neutral Systems, Senator Kin Robb of Taris.[1]

Despite realizing the error of his ways, Farr's contract with Nute Gunray continued to cost him. Though Farr had served in his position since long before the Clone Wars, many of his people on Rodia saw his actions as a betrayal, and his decision to betray Amidala, a long-time family friend, further besmirched his name. Despite Amidala's forgiveness, Farr's critics remained dubious, and his political support on Rodia declined.[15] Additionally, Farr's deal had terrible repercussions for those in the Savareen sector. By ceding exploitation rights of the sector to the Confederacy, Farr had unwittingly paved the way for immense suffering among those he represented in the Senate. In addition to the planets Christophsis and Zaadja, Farr had granted the Confederacy access to Nelvaan, home of the peaceful, low-tech Nelvaanian species. Under the allowances given to them under Farr's contract, the Confederacy-aligned Techno Union established a foothold on the planet and began experimenting on the Nelvaanian natives, transforming many into mindless cyborg monstrosities.[10]

Voyage aboard the Coronet[]

"What Master Skywalker means is that we are acting at the behest of Your Highness to protect you from the Death Watch and the Separatists who don't share you neutral point of view."
"I asked for no such thing."
"That may be so, but a majority of your court did."
―Obi-Wan Kenobi and Satine Kryze, discussing security measures Farr and others requested on the Coronet[30]
KryzeCourt-VOT

As part of the Council of Neutral Systems, Farr was invited to join Duchess Satine Kryze's court.

In 21 BBY,[2] the Council of Neutral Systems became imperiled when the Mandalorian terrorist group Death Watch started targeting Republic forces near the Mandalore sector.[30] Because both the New Mandalorian regime under Duchess Kryze and the Death Watch opposed a Republic presence on Mandalore, opportunists in the Republic proposed that the Death Watch threat justify a Republic occupation of the neutral world. By occupying Mandalore, the Republic could evade Kryze's staunch neutrality by reasoning that the occupation was to rescue the Mandalorian people from the Death Watch.[31] Hoping to maintain her world's neutrality, Kryze planned on testifying before the Senate and arguing against the occupation of her world. She invited Senator Farr to join her on her voyage to Coruscant from Mandalore aboard her yacht, the Coronet.[30]

Farr was one of three senators in the Council of Neutral Systems invited to join Kryze, the other two being Senator Robb and Senator Tal Merrik of Kalevala. A fourth dignitary,[7] Senator Orn Free Taa of Ryloth,[1] was not a member but was invited by Kryze nonetheless. Farr and his fellow senators traveled to the city of Sundari to meet with Kryze and board the Coronet.[7] Although it was against Satine's wishes, Farr and his colleagues requested the presence of Jedi and Republic forces on board. In addition to Kryze's personal guard, the Jedi Generals Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker, along with a detachment of clones from both the 501st Legion and 212th Attack Battalion, were stationed on the Coronet. Kryze and Kenobi had a complicated history together, unknown to Farr and everyone else on board, and the senators were unprepared for the tenuous trip ahead.[30]

Soon after the Coronet departed from Sundari, Farr and the rest of Kryze's court enjoyed drinks in her throne room, where the duchess spoke about her opinions on the war. Much to her displeasure, Kenobi and Skywalker entered the room after stationing their clone troopers, and Kenobi began making pro-war arguments to irk Satine. As Kryze and Kenobi bickered pettily, Farr and his colleagues watched the display in awkward silence. Despite the efforts of Senator Taa, neither Kenobi nor Kryze would back down, and soon they became openly confrontational. Senator Merrik managed to end their arguing by suggesting that they all prepare for dinner, after which Kryze left the room in agitation.[30]

Dinnertime-VOT

Farr and his fellow dignitaries have dinner, unaware of assassin droids in the Coronet's cargo hold.

By the time dinner was served, Kryze had mellowed considerably, and she joined Farr, Robb, Merrik, and Taa in the Coronet's ornate dining room, where they were served deep-fried nuna leg. Shortly into the meal, however, they were alerted by Kenobi that there was a security issue; Skywalker and the clones had discovered an empty container in the cargo hold, from which several probe assassin droids had escaped. Though they stopped one, another had fled up the lift and was heading towards the dining room. Kenobi ordered Farr and the others to back away from the lift, and soon the assassin droid broke through the doors. The droid easily killed a pair of Kryze's guards and launched itself onto the dinner table, but Kenobi managed to destroy it with his lightsaber before it reached the politicians in the back of the room.[30]

Though Kenobi disabled the droid, dozens of smaller probes ejected from the larger one and began scurrying across the room. Farr and his fellow senators tried to evade the swarming droids while Kenobi and Kryze, who pulled out her deactivator pistol, began dispatching them together. The droids were soon deactivated and destroyed, allowing the senators to get their bearings as the chaos subsided. With the threat seemingly over and Kryze and Kenobi reconciled, Farr and the rest of the dignitaries reconvened a short period later for dessert. They were not seated long, however, before Kenobi entered the room carrying a covered dish, only for the Jedi to reveal that he was holding a captive probe, still active. He explained that the crate containing the larger probe droids had been allowed aboard the Coronet under the Senate seal, meaning one of the four senators in Kryze's court had smuggled them on board to assassinate her.[30]

InterrogationsWithDessert-VOT

General Kenobi uses a small probe droid to clear Senators Farr and Robb of attempting to assassinate Duchess Satine.

Despite Kryze's objections, Kenobi began walking around the table with the droid, which exhibited aggression towards Taa, Farr, and Robb, clearing them of any blame. The droid calmed in front of Merrik, who Kenobi realized was the culprit. Merrik flipped the tray out of Kenobi's hands, freeing the small probe. The droid scurried towards Kryze, but Kenobi batted it away with a dish, only for it to attack Farr. While Kenobi was distracted trying to get the droid off Farr, Merrik took Kryze hostage and contacted the Death Watch, who sent Separatist boarding ships to attack the Coronet. After destroying the probe and saving Farr, Kenobi ran off to confront Merrik while Skywalker led the clones in fighting back against the battle droids now on board. Farr, Robb, and Taa remained safe far from the firefight, which ended in a victory for the Jedi, who freed Kryze, killed Merrik, and destroyed the Separatist boarding party.[30]

In the aftermath of the fraught voyage, the Coronet landed on Coruscant, where Duchess Satine and her guests met with Chancellor Palpatine, who was waiting for them. The ordeal finally over, Farr, Taa, Robb, and Kryze joined Palpatine on a transport and departed the landing pad for the Senate building.[30] Farr was later present to hear Kryze present her case for Mandalore's neutrality before the Senate, but a doctored testimony from Deputy Minister Jerec of the Mandalorian Government Council persuaded a majority of the Senate to vote for a Republic occupation. At great personal risk, Kryze managed to access Jerec's original testimony, which argued against the occupation, and present it to the Senate with Senator Amidala's help, convincing the Senate to rescind its earlier decision and grant Mandalore continuing neutrality.[31]

Sometime later, Farr was present in the Senate chamber to listen to Pantoran Senator Riyo Chuchi's testimony against the Trade Federation, which had blockaded Pantora under the false pretense the planet owed them a large debt. Following the session, Farr walked down the halls of the building with C-3PO.[32]

Hostage crisis[]

"The bounty hunter said we should just sit here. I think we should just sit here."
"Well, that's not a very good idea."
―Onaconda Farr and Anakin Skywalker — (audio) Listen (file info)[33]

In an attempt to give Chancellor Palpatine and his office the unprecedented[13] and broad powers[10] to spy on Republic citizens suspected of Separatist ties, a bill was introduced in the Senate ironically titled the Enhanced Privacy Invasion Bill.[13] The measure was opposed heavily by many anti-war senators, including Farr, Amidala, and Organa, and soon, a small political resistance group was galvanized to stop the bill from passing.[10] On the day the vote was scheduled, Farr was invited to a meeting in an atrium in the Senate Office Building's East Wing by Senator Philo[33] of Kinyen,[1] who wanted to discuss the motion with a group of opposition senators. In addition to Farr, Organa, and Amidala, Philo's meeting was attended by Senators Robb, Riyo Chuchi, Jakker-Sun, Dantum Roohd, and Zinn Paulness. At Philo's meeting, the group of senators jointly agreed that they had to shut down the bill before the Chancellor could move forward with it.[33]

Laser trigger

While discussing opposition to the Enhanced Privacy Invasion Bill, Farr and several colleagues were held hostage by bounty hunter Cad Bane.

As the meeting concluded, however, the doors to the hall suddenly opened, and a group of bounty hunters walked in and surrounded the politicians. The leader of the mercenaries, Cad Bane, fired his blaster into the ceiling to get their attention, then announced to Farr and his colleagues that they were now his hostages. Though Farr and nearly everyone else complied, Philo dissented and attempted to leave, only to be shot in the back and killed by Bane. As Farr looked on in shock, Bane ordered the remaining senators to gather in the center of the atrium and ordered the hunters under his command to search them. With the group of senators hostage, Bane established contact with Chancellor Palpatine's office and demanded the release of Ziro the Hutt from imprisonment at the Republic Judiciary Central Detention Center in return for the politicians.[33]

While Palpatine mulled the situation, Bane had his hunters shut down the building's power, cutting the Chancellor from outside contact and leaving the hostages lit only by the emergency lights and the sunlight beaming through the atrium ceiling. He began walking around the senators, demanding they hand him their comms. Before he could search Amidala, Bane spotted General Skywalker in an upper level of the atrium and fired at the Jedi, startling Farr. Bane sent Aurra Sing and two other hunters to pursue Skywalker, who had escaped Bane's volley. While Bane and the remaining mercenaries were distracted, Farr and the hostages began speaking amongst themselves but were silenced when Bane noticed and fired another warning shot at the ceiling. Bane contacted the Chancellor's office again and ordered Palpatine to write a pardon for Ziro and send it and Senator Taa, who was in Palpatine's office with him, to the prison.[33]

SenateHostages-HC

Farr and Skywalker discuss what their plan to escape Bane's trap will be.

Sing and the rest of Bane's team soon returned to the atrium with an unconscious and handcuffed Skywalker, then tossed him in with the senators. When he received confirmation that Palpatine had sent Taa to the detention center with a pardon for Ziro, Bane had his crew place bombs on the pillars around the hall, which emitted a laser field that surrounded the senators. Bane informed them that disturbing the sensors would set off the bombs, killing them and destroying the room. With the hostages trapped, Bane and his hunters left the Senate building to rendezvous with the transport carrying the now-freed Ziro. With no recourse, Farr and the others stayed in place, waiting for Skywalker to regain consciousness. When the Jedi did, Farr informed him that Bane ordered them to stay put and opined that they should follow his order, but Skywalker disagreed with Farr's proposal.[33]

After receiving his lightsaber from Amidala, who told him she had found it nearby, Skywalker dug his blade into the floor and began cutting a circle around the senators. As he did so, the devices around the room began emitting a high-pitched noise, as Bane had planned on detonating the bombs despite his promise to the Chancellor that he would leave the senators unharmed. When Skywalker completed the circle, the floor caved in before the bombs went off, sending Farr and the senators to the level below, narrowly surviving the destruction of the atrium. Bane and his crew had been able to escape the Senate building because he could have killed the hostage senators, but, with their survival, the Republic sent a military task force after them,[33] which failed to bring the criminals to justice.[34] When the Senate reconvened after the crisis, the resistance group that formed against the Enhanced Privacy Invasion Bill successfully spearheaded its defeat in the Senate.[10]

Political battles[]

The peace initiative[]

Padmé Amidala: "Given that the Separatists have put a call for negotiations on the table, the need for additional troopers seems ill-timed."
Bail Organa: "Which means there is no need deregulate the banks."
Onaconda Farr: "I say we vote that down now."
―Amidala, Organa, and Farr move to defeat Gume Saam's bill[22]

As the war raged on and the Republic military faced higher casualties and fewer victories on the battlefield, the Senate convened to debate the cost of the war. The debate was largely unproductive, with senators falling into partisan lines. While the militarist caucuses and corporate entities argued in favor of an increase in military funding, Farr, Organa, Amidala, and Mothma made their case that it was dangerous to continue with the war without taking the Republic's poor financial state into consideration. During the contested session, Senator Gume Saam of the Techno Union introduced a bill that would deregulate the InterGalactic Banking Clan, allowing the Republic to open new lines of credit. This deregulation would give the Republic the necessary funds to purchase more clones, but Farr and his faction knew that it would come at the cost of Republic services unrelated to the war.[22]

During the debate, Organa and Mothma argued against Saam's bill on financial grounds but were unable to deflect from Lott Dod and Halle Burtoni's announcements of support. When the chamber erupted into open bickering, Amidala entered the fray and argued that the deregulation of the banks was not only fiscally irresponsible but morally reprehensible. She called for the Senate to open communications with the Confederacy so negotiation could take place rather than forcing the Republic further into war. Amidala's call for peace only achieved more arguing, and she was accused of treason by numerous pro-war senators. Hoping to give his faction another chance to derail Saam's bill, Organa suggested that Vice Chair Amedda adjourn the Senate's vote on Saam's motion until the financial cost could be properly reported to the body.[22]

Though Amedda took Saam's bill off the floor, Amidala was still eager to sue for peace despite the poor reception she had received earlier and decided to personally undertake a covert mission across enemy lines to the capital of the Confederacy, Raxus Secundus. There, she met with Mina Bonteri, who represented Onderon on the Separatist Parliament, and together they conceived a peace initiative between the Republic and the Confederacy. Bonteri first introduced the motion to the Separatist legislature, where it overcame small opposition and was enthusiastically adopted, after which Padmé returned to Coruscant to present the diplomatic endeavor to the Senate.[22] Despite their antipathy towards Bonteri long before the war,[6] Farr, Organa, and Mothma supported Amidala's proposal.[22]

FarrHeroesOnBothSides

Senator Farr urges the Senate to vote down Gume Saam's deregulation bill.

Using the peace initiative to their advantage, Organa, Amidala, and Farr argued against Saam's bill before the Senate during the second debate over the motion. Organa and Amidala explained that since the Confederacy was willing to reach out to begin negotiations to end the war, deregulating the Banking Clan was unnecessary and ill-timed. When the two finished making their case, Farr called on the congress to vote down Saam's bill. Amedda brought the bill to a vote, but while the results were being tallied, the power in the Senate building shut down. Saam, Dod, and Banking Clan representative Nix Card, whose respective corporations could profit from the passage of Saam's motion, had secretly used their Separatist ties to order an attack on Coruscant. Confederate General Grievous arranged a bombing of Coruscant's central power distribution grid, setting off an explosion that resulted in a planetwide blackout.[22]

While fires raged across Coruscant, the Senate, shuttered in place due to the chaos, received confirmation that the attack came from the Separatists. Saam reintroduced his bill to the Senate floor and made an emotional appeal for the body to make the Confederacy pay for the bombing. Despite Amidala's pleas, Chancellor Palpatine announced his personal support for deregulation, and Senator Burtoni requested an immediate vote on the bill, which resoundingly passed.[22] The following day, the Senate continued its debate, during which the militarist and corporate groups in the Senate again began pushing for increases in war spending. Farr and his allies continued to argue in favor of negotiations with the Confederacy but found themselves fighting a losing battle as the bombing of the power grid led a majority of the Senate to dismiss the initiative.[35]

Amid the contested session, Burtoni proposed that the Republic purchase an additional five million clone troopers, and put forward an emergency appropriations bill drafted by the Kaminoan government that would raise funds from the deregulated Banking Clan. As Farr looked on, Amidala attempted to persuade the Senate that the attack on Coruscant was meant to derail the peace process, but she was again shouted down and accused of treason, causing her to look to Farr, who was saddened by the verbal assault. Chancellor Palpatine began to speak on her behalf but stopped what he was saying and announced that his office had just received a message from Count Dooku, which was played before the Senate. In the message, Dooku informed them that Mina Bonteri had been killed in a Republic attack and that the Separatist Parliament was rescinding its vote for the peace initiative. When the news of Bonteri's death broke, Amidala and Farr shared a glance as any hope of securing peaceful negotiation ended.[35]

Opposing military expansion[]

"Uncle Ono, what happened?"
"Two thugs jumped me, but I am fine."
"This is outrageous. Something has to be done."
"Padmé, this will not change my mind. No matter what, I will vote against this bill."
―Padmé Amidala and Onaconda Farr[35]
FarrAmidalaPlain

Onaconda Farr and Padmé Amidala visit Mak Plain to learn how deregulation will affect war funding.

After the Senate session closed, Farr joined Amidala and Organa as they walked to the latter's office, where Organa revealed that he had confirmed through his connections to Republic Intelligence that Bonteri had not been killed in a Republic attack but had been murdered on Dooku's orders. Farr told Amidala that he was sorry for her loss, and Organa declared to them both that they would not let Bonteri's peace initiative die in vain by defeating Burtoni's bill. He told them that he would begin lining up support to oppose the bill, but he would need ammunition to use in his arguments. Farr attempted to lighten the mood by joking that they could not afford ammunition, but his joke fell flat. Bail asked Amidala to meet with the Banking Clan's liaison on Coruscant, Mak Plain, to see how much the banks would charge in interest on Burtoni's proposed loan. Padmé asked Ono to join her, reasoning that he knew the Banking Clan representatives before snidely adding that he owed her for telling a bad joke, at which Ono sighed and spoke in Rodian.[35]

Farr and Amidala went to Mak Plain's office, where the Muun informed the pair that the Banking Clan planned to charge the Republic an interest rate of twenty-five percent, shocking them. Outraged, Farr pointedly told Plain that such a high charge was outright theft. Amidala asked why the Banking Clan was ignoring its standard arrangement with the Republic, an interest rate of ten percent, but Plain explained that the same rules no longer applied after deregulation. Plain told them that the Confederacy had no issue with the rate hike and had secured a loan of nearly three million credits to fund their armies. Farr muttered that the Separatists would wipe them out with the increase in battle droids, while Amidala asked Plain why the Banking Clan would choose to fund the growth of Dooku's war machine. Plain waved away her question and reminded them that the Banking Clan was neutral and had no stake in the war or what happened on the battlefield.[35]

Farr and Amidala's inquiry into the Banking Clan proved helpful to Organa, who realized that the twenty-five percent interest hike would not only force the Republic to continue operating in debt but force the government to defund services unrelated to the war effort. Though Bail had the ammunition he needed to sway the remaining handful of votes left to gain a majority, a new problem soon arose in the form of threats against senators, warning them to vote in favor of Burtoni's bill. Later that night, Farr was walking alone in the Monument Plaza when a mandatory blackout was enacted. As he walked through the plaza center, Farr was jumped by two thugs, Robonino and Chata Hyoki. After Robonino grappled Farr to the ground, Hyoki beat the senator, who survived the attack but ended up with a broken arm. The next day, just after Amidala and Organa had failed to sway more senators to their side, Farr and Purs approached, and Amidala asked what had happened to him. Ono revealed his injuries to them, and, as Amidala declared that something had to be done, he stoically confirmed that the attack would not change his vote.[35]

MeetingWithChristo

Farr and Amidala attempt to gain the support of one of the remaining holdouts on the vote, Senator Christo.

Still missing the votes needed to gain a majority and beginning to lose support, Farr and Amidala decided to pay a visit to one of the remaining holdouts, Senator Christo. Farr parked his speeder outside Christo's apartment while Amidala's driver dropped her off. Inside, Christo was unmoved by their attempt to reach him ideologically, believing that it was not worth being beaten just for one vote, pointing out Farr's injury. Farr told Christo that his arm would heal and reminded him of the millions dying in the war, but the Quarren argued that the clone army was created for that purpose and that the people he cared about were those who put him in office. Angered by his remark, Farr asked Christo when he last spoke to his constituents, but the Quarren deflected the question and asked the same of Farr. After making it clear that Farr and Amidala would not convince him to oppose Burtoni's bill, Christo asked what position Organa had. Amidala revealed to him that Bail was preparing to speak before the full Senate, and Christo agreed to listen to what he had to say.[35][35]

Their attempt to gain Christo's vote having failed, Farr and Amidala departed the senator's home. Amidala was optimistic about their odds despite their failure, believing that Christo and the other undecided senators would join their side once they heard Organa's speech. Farr offered to give Padmé a ride in his speeder, but she declined and informed him that she would walk to her speeder, which her driver had parked a block away. Farr protested her choice, reminding her of the recent attacks, but she told him that she could defend herself and added that she needed the fresh air. Knowing that he would not change her mind, Farr asked her to be careful before taking off in his speeder. As Farr had feared, Amidala was attacked and nearly killed by Robonino and Hyoki while walking down the street. After narrowly escaping on a speeder bike, Amidala found herself held up by police following a lengthy chase with the bounty hunters, who fled the scene.[35]

The following day, Organa was attacked by the two thugs in his apartment complex's garage. Although Organa's guards managed to arrest Hyoki and Robonino, Bail was seriously injured when his speeder crashed into a wall as he attempted to escape. Organa had his guards contact Farr to inform him of his condition. Horrified, Farr quickly found Amidala in the Senate halls and brought her to her office in haste, where he displayed a hologram of Organa, who was in the arms of a medic. The medic told Farr and Amidala that Bail could barely move and was in no condition to give his speech. Farr ordered the medic to bring Organa to the hospital, and, before the call ended, Organa asked Padmé to speak in his place. Although supporters of Burtoni's bill urged the Senate to move forward with the vote, Mothma stalled them and demanded that the opposition be allowed to speak before they could begin the call.[35][35]

AmidalaFarr

Senator Farr tries to convince Padmé to speak in Organa's place.

In Amidala's office, Farr tried to convince her to speak before the Senate in Organa's place, but she argued that Organa had more weight to his words and was the person the undecided senators had been waiting to hear. Ono told Padmé that she was respected too, but she reminded him that she was only respected as a partisan and did not carry the same clout as Bail. Amidala's aide, Teckla Minnau, arrived to dress her for the Senate session and gave Padmé the necessary confidence by telling her that she could sway votes to their side because she listened to the people of the Republic, not just the Senate elite. Inspired by Minnau, Amidala put together a touching and passionate defense of basic social amenities that would suffer under another increase in war spending. Once Amidala finished preparing, she, Farr, and Minnau headed for the Senate chamber.[35]

In the Senate, Mothma's stalling had just about failed. Vice Chair Amedda was preparing to open the vote due to Organa's absence when Amidala arrived and announced that she would speak on Organa's behalf. Farr stood in his Senate pod alongside Lolo Purs and listened to Amidala's speech, which argued that Burtoni's appropriations bill would come at the cost of the necessities of the Republic's citizens, was broadcast on the HoloNet and watched by many across Coruscant. Padmé ended her speech with a strong call for the Senate to defeat the bill, and she received rousing support from many in the chamber, including Farr, who congratulated her from his pod and eagerly joined the applause. Though Amidala's speech was well-received and earned begrudging respect from militarist leaders,[35] it was unfortunately not enough to stop Burtoni's bill from passing.[8]

Counter-legislation[]

"Ono, you've done a wonderful job leading the effort."
"I am just trying to do what is right. I only wish I had tried doing that a long time ago."
"You're doing it now."
―Mon Mothma and Onaconda Farr[8]
WeWillGetTheVotes

Farr convinces Padmé that she will get them the votes they need with her speech.

Despite their failure to stop the purchase of more clone forces from passing in the Senate, Farr was indefatigable and decided to sponsor counter-legislation alongside Amidala that would reduce the Republic's financial output to the military and keep Burtoni's bill from coming into effect. Farr's faction realized that the new resolution passing the Senate was within reach and embarked on efforts to gain enough votes to ensure its success. With help from Organa and Mothma, Farr and Amidala began promoting their bill and worked hard to gather support. Farr himself was successful in convincing many senators to support the motion. While spearheading the legislation, however, Farr began receiving threats from an unknown opponent, and on the night before Amidala was expected to speak before the Senate in support of the bill, he traveled to the docks under the derrick major to meet with the mysterious figure,[8] who threatened him to retire from his leadership position.[15]

Remaining stagnant and committed to his cause, Farr was undeterred by the threat and continued with his work.[8] As with their opposition to Burtoni's appropriations bill,[35] Farr and his allies were close to gaining a majority of votes needed but still required a handful of senators to join their side. The day after his clandestine meeting with his threatener, Farr met with Amidala in her office alongside Mothma, Purs, and C-3PO while the Senate began convening. After a meeting with Duchess Satine, who was present on Coruscant, Padmé spoke with Senator Stonk via hologram, who informed her that he would not vote for their bill due to public opinion despite his personal support. Purs expressed annoyance at this development and exclaimed that Stonk's sorrow would not help them, but Farr calmly poured himself a glass of wine and said that when Amidala addressed the Senate, her speech would be all they needed to get the remaining votes, which Padmé told him she hoped was right.[8]

Purs stood and addressed Farr in Rodian, referring to him as the most influential man on Rodia. Slightly discomforted, Farr looked to the ground and told Purs that, even if he was an influential man, what mattered to him most after all the mistakes he had made in the war was to help bring peace. Just then, Organa entered Padmé's office and told those present that the Senate was in session and prepared for Amidala's speech. Exiting her office, Farr placed his hand on Padmé's back. While walking towards their respective Senate pods, Farr admitted that he was excited to hear the former's speech. Padmé joked that she found it more terrifying than exciting, but Farr turned to Organa and told him to pay her no mind. Farr proudly told Bail that Amidala always downplayed her strengths, even as a child, to maintain the element of surprise. Amidala warmly looked at Farr and reminded him that she had learned the trick from him.[8]

FarrVersusBurtoni

When Halle Burtoni interrupted his faction's meeting, Farr confronted the Kaminoan and sent her away.

Upon arriving at her pod, Padmé bid her colleagues farewell, and Farr, Purs, and Organa went to their respective pods to await her address. In her speech, Amidala again reiterated her faction's belief that increasing military numbers would only escalate the war, not lead to its end. Padmé's speech was well-received and gained applause from the congress. After the session closed, Farr went to meet her, and witnessed a brief argument between her and Senator Deechi. After leaving Deechi, Farr and Amidala returned to latter's office to celebrate with Organa, Mothma, and Purs, wherein C-3PO brought out a platter of drinks. Though Farr tried to serve himself, Purs poured each senator a glass of wine, and Farr raised his glass to Amidala and told her that she had turned the tide in their favor. Mothma complimented her speech as well, but Padmé suggested that they wait to make victory speeches until they actually won the vote. Just then, they were interrupted by Burtoni, who entered Amidala's office uninvited. Amidala told the Kaminoan that she had barged in on a private conversation, but Burtoni suggested that her opponents were engaging in a Separatist conspiracy instead.[8]

Purs angrily retorted Burtoni, and Amidala reiterated their faction's commitment to diplomacy. Burtoni snidely told Amidala that diplomacy had failed the Republic long ago, leading Mothma to step in and urge them to end their argument. Irked by Burtoni's petulance, Farr addressed her directly. He told the Kaminoan that, although her government had bartered the clone army in exchange for a seat in the Senate, she did not have free rein to go wherever or do whatever she wanted in the Senate halls. Backing her towards the door, Farr sarcastically thanked Burtoni for visiting and sent her away so he and his allies could continue their meeting. Before leaving, Burtoni looked to the group and told them that the war would not end soon, despite their efforts.[8]

Death and funeral[]

"Oh, my heart. I can't breathe..."
―Onaconda Farr's final words before his death[8]
Onacondafarrdead

Farr collapsing onto the ground, dead, after being poisoned.

After sending Burtoni away, Farr rejoined his friends, and Amidala remarked that they had to have done something right to rattle Burtoni. As Farr refilled his glass, Mothma told Amidala that they had made great strides in securing their bill's success, then turned to Farr and commended his leadership in spearheading the effort. Farr responded that he was only trying to do what was right before adding that he wished he had done so earlier in the war. Mothma placed her hand on his shoulder and waved away his regrets, telling him that what mattered was that he was doing so now. Organa raised his glass and proposed a toast to their victory and an end to the Clone Wars. With the exception of Purs, the senators toasted and drank from their glasses, but after drinking, Farr grew dizzy and complained that his heart was in pain. Moments later, he muttered that he could not breathe and fell to the ground. Bail and Padmé immediately got down to help him and Mothma ran out of the room to find help, but Farr was already dead.[8]

Because of Farr's sudden and unexplained death, Lieutenant Tan Divo of the Coruscant Security Force ordered an autopsy of Farr's body, which forensic science commander V2A DAZ carried out. The droid discovered the chemical trace of poison in his bloodstream. The poison, which was of Kaminoan origin, only affected Rodians, and V2A DAZ concluded in his report that Farr had been murdered, leading the CSF to open an official investigation under Lieutenant Divo. Shortly after, a small funeral was held on a platform in Coruscant's atmosphere, which was attended by many of Farr's close friends and colleagues in the Senate, including Amidala, Organa, and Mothma. Also in attendance were Chancellor Palpatine, Vice Chair Amedda, Duchess Kryze, members of the Jedi High Council, and Farr's aides Silood and Purs. During the ceremony, Silood gave a short eulogy at the service, reflecting that, despite Ono's mistakes, he never compromised on his principles as a devoted servant to his people. After delivering his eulogy, Silood accompanied Farr's casket onto a shuttle as Senate Honor Guards performed an arms salute.[8]

"Which everyone seemed to forget, including you! I didn't. Did you honestly think he had the moral right to lead us after he betrayed us?"
"He was sorry!"
"He was weak!"
―Padmé Amidala and Lolo Purs, who confessed to Farr's murder[8]
Senate Murder suspects

Farr's friends and colleagues learn that he had been murdered from Inspector Divo.

As the funeral ended, Organa, knowing that Amidala and Farr had been close for a long time, approached her and offered her help if she needed it, but she rebuffed him and told him that what they needed was to pass Farr's bill. Amidala then walked over to Purs, who was distraught and told Padmé that she was unsure what to do without Farr's guidance. As Amidala consoled her, the two were told by a Senate Guard that they had been summoned to the Chancellor's office. Upon arriving, Amidala and Purs found the Chancellor, Vice Chair Amedda, Senator Taa, Organa, and Mothma, accompanied by a contingent of CSF police droids. Palpatine introduced them to Inspector Divo, who informed them that the CSF concluded that Farr's death was foul play. He asked them if Farr had any enemies who would be willing to kill him, but the late Rodian's allies protested that no one, not even his political enemies, would have hated him to the point of murder.[8]

Despite the senators' disagreement, Divo believed that Farr's murder might have been tied to a secret of his coming out or a mistake that had come back to haunt him. After requesting that Farr's faction stay out of his investigation, Divo departed, after which Organa, Mothma, Purs, and Amidala began walking toward the latter's office. Mothma and Purs speculated about who would have wanted Farr dead, but Organa sternly told them that speculation would not help and that they had to work harder to pass Farr's budget reduction. Amidala, however, suggested that they postpone the vote until they knew what happened to their friend. Though unsure of the idea, Organa agreed to put forward a motion to reschedule the vote, since no one would object given Farr's death. Behind closed doors, Amidala told them that she planned on conducting her own investigation into Ono's death, despite Divo's ongoing case. At Mothma's urging, Amidala agreed to allow Organa to join her.[8]

Amidala and Organa confront Deechi and Burtoni, who they suspected had a hand in Farr's death.

Amidala and Organa first went to Senator Deechi's office to speak with him and Burtoni, where they denied killing Farr. While Burtoni coldly joked that killing Farr would kill her best source of fundraising, Deechi mentioned his respectful relationship with Farr and gave Padmé what information he knew. Deechi revealed that he had been secretly having Farr followed and, because of this, knew about Farr's secret meeting at the derrick major the night before he died. Armed with Deechi's tip, Amidala and Organa traveled to the docks to look for clues. Organa tried to dissuade Amidala from investigating further and told her not to use her amateur detective work to bury her grief over Farr's death. Irritated at Bail's comment, Padmé denied that she was unhealthily dealing with her grief, but while the two argued, a hooded figure tried to kill them by dropping a large shipping crate from an overhead crane. After a brief firefight and a failed attempt to capture the mysterious figure, Organa and Amidala called the CSF.[8]

Lieutenant Divo arrived and berated the two for intervening in his investigation, but despite his request, Amidala surmised that Deechi had set them up. She and Organa, closely followed by Divo, returned to the Senate building to confront Deechi, only to find the Umbaran senator stabbed to death in his chair. With another Senate murder case opened, Divo ordered the CSF to place the Senate on lockdown and confine senators to their offices under security. Divo had Amidala, Organa, Mothma, and Purs brought together in Amidala's office, where he planned on questioning them, but Purs protested and left the room. Padmé told Divo that Burtoni had been in her earlier meeting with Deechi, and Divo went to locate the Kaminoan, but his police droids found her office empty and could not find her. Shortly after Divo returned to Amidala's office, Purs frantically entered while screaming. She told Divo that she had been attacked by Burtoni, who Divo's droids quickly found down the hall and detained.[8]

Her murder of Farr revealed, Lolo Purs attempts to take Padmé hostage.

In the Chancellor's office the following morning, Divo questioned Burtoni, who denied attacking Purs and murdering Farr and Deechi. Divo argued that Burtoni had threatened Farr at the docks the night before he died and slipped the poison into the wine he was drinking when she barged into Amidala's office the next day. Burtoni tried to dispel his claims, but Divo concluded his theory by mentioning the poison's Kaminoan origin. Believing he had found Farr's killer, Divo ordered Burtoni's arrest, but Amidala realized that Purs would have died too since the poison was in all of their drinks and only affected Rodians unless she hadn't drunk. Her secret uncovered, Purs pulled out a blaster and aimed it at Amidala's head, taking her hostage. Amidala demanded to know why Purs had killed Farr, and Purs explained that Farr's deal with the Separatists showcased his weakness and inability to lead. Farr's mistake had brought Rodia into the war, and Purs believed he had betrayed his people and was unworthy of leading them in the Senate.[8]

While explaining her actions to Amidala, however, Purs let it slip that she had been the mysterious figure who threatened Farr at the docks and later tried to kill Amidala and Organa days later. She also admitted to killing Deechi after learning that he knew of the meeting. Before Purs could leave the room, however, Divo used his wrist comm to order his police droids outside the office to enter, surrounding her. While Purs was distracted, Amidala swatted the blaster out of her hands and knocked her out with a hard punch. After Purs' arrest, the CSF released Burtoni, and the Senate returned to normalcy. The congress later convened to vote on Farr's bill, but, despite all the efforts made by the late senator and his allies, the motion failed, and the increase in clone trooper production was to continue as outlined in Burtoni's appropriations bill. While speaking with Amidala after the bill's defeat, Chancellor Palpatine cited the murders of Farr and Deechi as reasons why it was important to expand the Republic Military for security.[8]

Remembrance[]

In 19 BBY,[9] the Clone Wars came to a quick and tumultuous end when the Confederacy collapsed and an outright authoritarian Chancellor Palpatine declared himself Galactic Emperor and transformed the Republic into the Galactic Empire, despite the efforts of[36] the late Farr's close allies, Amidala, Organa, and Mothma.[8] Amidst the chaos that followed Palpatine's decree, Amidala died in childbirth. Organa and his wife, Queen Breha Organa of Alderaan, adopted one of Amidala's children, Leia, and raised her as their own.[36] One day when Leia was young, Breha told her stories about her brave and selfless birth mother and reminisced about the time Amidala forgave Farr for his betrayal against her and the Republic early in the war.[37]

At some point, accounts of Senator Farr's life were depicted on a series of illustrated maps by the Ithorian artist Gammit Chond. Although he was a recluse, Chond purportedly based his maps on stories he heard from travelers, including some of Farr, including his turn from the Republic. Long after they were created, the maps, which were among what little of Chond's artwork to survive, were stored in the Shadow Stacks of the Graf Archive on the moon Orchis 2 until a student archivist exhumed the set, after which they were painstakingly restored and released as a collection. In a rough timeline of galactic history from 32 BBY to 34 ABY, the years covered by Chond's work, the Graf Archive labeled the events on Rodia[9] following Farr's brief contract with Viceroy Gunray[4] as one of many significant events from the period.[9]

The Graf Archive also discovered an artist's journal detailing various species from across the galaxy. Though the Archive was unable to authenticate the artist, staff at the Archive suspected that it may have been Chond, given that the artistic style used in the journal was similar to his other work. Following the journal's restoration, the Archive gave it a public release, pairing the art with data about the species depicted. In the entry on Rodians, Farr was named as one of several notable members of his species who broke from the stereotype of Rodians following criminal paths.[38] As with Chond's maps,[9] Farr was remembered primarily for his crisis of faith early in the Clone Wars, but the historians who wrote the data provided by the Archive praised him for fighting the famine that plagued his people.[38]

Personality and traits[]

"And we are all aware that Onaconda was a flawed man. He knew better than anyone of his own mistakes, but he never compromised his principles, and what he did, he did for his people. Their needs always came first."
―Silood, at Farr's funeral[8]
OnacondaFarr-TCWCEJtB

Onaconda Farr was an outspoken and savvy politician.

Onaconda Farr was a male[3] Rodian who stood 1.75 meters tall, or 5 feet and 9 inches. He had turquoise skin with iridescent coloration across his head[1] and blue eyes that sparkled when he wore clothes that complimented them.[6]

As the senator of his homeworld of Rodia, Farr was a devoted servant to his people, and his life of public service ensured that their needs were his primary concern.[8] Once considered among the most respected members of the Galactic Senate,[15] Farr was a savvy politician[1] who promoted progressive ideals,[6] supported humanitarian causes,[16] and sought to preserve the Galactic Republic's democratic[6] and diplomatic standards.[35] He believed that it was his duty as a member of the Senate to stand up against injustice rather than wait for others to solve injustices.[8] Though faithful to the Republic, Farr was not unwilling to criticize his government and recognized its flaws.[15] Farr's outspoken advocacy for his beliefs belied a self-conscious and self-effacing man in private. Despite displaying strength in the Senate,[8] Farr was deeply aware of his personal flaws and mistakes but believed that it was better to be aware of his shortcomings than to pretend that he was without any issues or naïveté.[6] Though a more complex politician off-world, Farr embraced his people's simple traditions and ways of life when on Rodia.[39]

Through his support for relief efforts,[16] Farr became friends with Ruwee Naberrie and, through him, grew close with his daughter, Padmé Amidala. Treated as an uncle by Padmé,[4] Farr proved to be an invaluable mentor and passed many of his political skills to her.[15] After maintaining a distance from her in her first few months as a senator, Farr offered himself as a guide again,[6] and they would help each other as colleagues until the day he died.[8] Farr advised her to be honest about her shortcomings, like he was, telling her that inexperience did not make her a poorer senator.[6] With Amidala, Farr was part of a close-knit faction alongside Bail Organa and Mon Mothma. Though Farr was considered a partisan in the Senate, he had respectful working relationships with his opponents[8] and was upset when his friends were verbally assaulted or slandered by them. In times of stress, Farr employed his sense of humor to alleviate tension among his friends, but his soft sense of humor could fall flat.[35]

AmidalaFarrOrgana

Farr worked closely with like-minded senators such as Padmé Amidala and Bail Organa to fight for peace.

Despite his longtime support for the Republic,[15] Farr faced a crisis of faith early in the Clone Wars when his people faced famine due to piracy.[4] Becoming increasingly troubled and distant from those closest to him in a short period of time,[23] Farr grew disillusioned with the Republic, which failed to deliver aid. Feeling that his people had been abandoned and ignored, Farr gave in to desperation and signed a contract with Nute Gunray,[4] a severe political miscalculation that cost him local support on Rodia.[15] Although Farr feared that his decision to comply with Gunray's demand for Amidala's imprisonment would affect his friendship with her, Padmé graciously accepted his apology and their relationship remained unchanged.[4] Despite Amidala's willingness to move on, Farr's actions weighed heavily on him, and he was deeply affected by his mistake.[1] For the rest of his life, Farr was haunted by his betrayals and suffered immense guilt for what he had done.[8]

In the aftermath of his crisis, Farr rejoined his faction's causes and the fight for a peaceful end to the Clone Wars. Despite facing an increase in political attacks from militarist and corporate groups in the Senate,[8] Farr was resolute and unyielding[35] and was willing to challenge his opponents and confront them himself.[8] In his new campaign for peace and negotiation, Farr opposed war spending initiatives and financially irresponsible actions[35] such as deregulation.[22] Farr found solace in being able to join the fight to end the war despite wishing he had done so earlier in the conflict. Though he still had difficulty accepting his mistakes, Farr believed that what mattered most was that he used his power to achieve peace. In his cause, Farr found a way to begin to let go of his guilt and redirect his focus,[8] but others would not be as willing to let go of the past as he was.[1]

Skills and abilities[]

A career politician,[15] Onaconda Farr was a talented legislator, having exceptional skill in political strategies and dealmaking. As a representative in the Galactic Senate, Farr, like many of his colleagues, was an able and experienced diplomat.[1] He was also multilingual and could speak in both Galactic Basic and Rodian,[8] the common tongue of his species.[40] Though a peaceful politician, Farr was a skilled hunter[39] and was capable of wielding a blaster, as evidenced when he took up arms to confront Viceroy Nute Gunray early in the Clone Wars.[4]

Behind the scenes[]

Onaconda Farr first appeared in Star Wars: Episode I The Phantom Menace,[3] which was directed by Star Wars creator George Lucas[14] and released on May 19, 1999.[41] He later appeared in Star Wars: Episode II Attack of the Clones,[3] also directed by Lucas[5] and released on May 16, 2002.[42] In Attack of the Clones, Farr was portrayed by the uncredited Zuraya Hamilton, which was confirmed in a behind-the-scenes image released on StarWars.com as part of the Image Attack series on June 18 of the same year.[43]

Farr became a supporting character in the 2008 film Star Wars: The Clone Wars[26] and its subsequent television series, with his first speaking role in the season one episode "Bombad Jedi,"[4] which aired on Cartoon Network on November 21, 2008.[44] In "Bombad Jedi," Farr was voiced by Dee Bradley Baker. Baker reprised the role throughout the second and third seasons of The Clone Wars.[4][8][35] "Bombard Jedi" implies that the deal between the Confederacy and Farr was a newly made agreement,[4] which was confirmed by Star Wars: The Complete Visual Dictionary, New Edition: the reference book notes that Farr abandoned the Separatists shortly after he had joined them.[45] Rise of the Separatists incorrectly says the agreement lasted nearly a year into the Clone War.[10]
