Tarsus Valorum was a politician who served as the first Supreme Chancellor of the Galactic Republic after the fall of the Old Republic.


Tarsus Valorum was a member of House Valorum[1] who served as the first Supreme Chancellor of the Galactic Republic, following the fall of the Old Republic, and the Galactic Republic's restructuring. 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.[2]

Finis Valorum, the penultimate Supreme Chancellor of the Republic, was a direct descendant of Tarsus.[1]
