Tarsus Valorum was a member of House Valorum who served as the first Supreme Chancellor of the Galactic Republic, following the fall of the Old Republic, and the Galactic Republic's creation. The galaxy left a dark age under Valorum's rule, in which the Sith were defeated by the Jedi Order. While presiding as Chancellor, the Galactic Senate was created, and the military which previously existed had been disbanded. As a result of the new Republic's creation, the populations of the Core Worlds became eager to expand their reach into the Outer Rim Territories.

Stories in Star Wars LegendsEdit
In these stories, Supreme Chancellor Valorum was a prominent politician, who served as the first Supreme Chancellor who wasn't a member of the Jedi Order in four hundred years, during and after the New Sith Wars. Valorum was instrumental in the Ruusan Reformation, an event that restructured the entire Galactic Republic by taking power away from the Supreme Chancellor and reinvesting it in the Galactic Senate.
