Vice Chair Mas Amedda holding the Speaker's staff

The Speaker's staff was a long wooden staff wielded by the Vice Chair of the Galactic Republic Senate. It had crisscrossing carved lines running down its length, and was capped by a dull golden statuette[1] of Sistros,[2][3] one of the Four Sages of Dwartii.[4]

During the proclamation of the New Order—when Supreme Chancellor Sheev Palpatine announced the transformation of the Republic into the First Galactic Empire—the staff was held by the current Vice Chair, a Chagrian named Mas Amedda.[5]

After he became Grand Vizier of the Galactic Empire, Amedda continued to wield a similar scepter.[6] When the Galactic Emperor held a briefing, Amedda would bang his staff on the floor as a sign that the meeting should commence.[2]
