Biography[]

"Welcome back, Senator. May I see your clearance?"
―The Senate Guard, to Bail Organa[1]

The Senate Guard was stationed at an entrance to the Grand Convocation Chamber in 19 BBY.

A male Senate Guard worked for the Galactic Republic.[1] In 19 BBY,[2] the guard was stationed with a partner at a door to the Grand Convocation Chamber in the Senate Building on the planet Coruscant during an emergency session of the Senate, in which the Republic was reorganized into the Galactic Empire. The guard blinked and adjusted the drape of his robe when Senator Bail Organa of the planet Alderaan exited a turbolift with his aides and two Jedi, Obi-Wan Kenobi and Yoda. The guard quickly looked at his partner and was in disbelief at his good fortune, as the Jedi Order had recently been outlawed, and he expected promotions would be handed out if he captured the two Jedi.[1]

The guard avoided staring at the Jedi and attempted to act professionally as he received Organa's identichip. He was pleased with his own businesslike demeanor as he returned it to the senator. The guard stated that he and his partner would take custody of the Jedi, prompting Kenobi to mind trick the guards through the Force. Kenobi suggested that he and Yoda should stay with Organa, and the guard agreed that it was a good idea as Kenobi seemed like a reasonable person.[1]

The Senate Guard encountered (from left to right) Yoda, Obi-Wan Kenobi, and Bail Organa and was mind tricked by Kenobi.

The guard rationalized that the Grand Convocation Chamber was secure enough to prevent the Jedi from causing trouble, and that they could be arrested upon their exit. He did not want to be perceived as unreasonable and found himself constantly nodding and agreeing with Kenobi's suggestions. The Senate Guard continued believing that the Jedi's plan was acceptable and did not think to object when they changed course and departed for the Jedi Temple while Organa entered the chamber.[1]

Personality and traits[]

The guard was excited upon seeing the Jedi, believing that he would receive a promotion for their capture. He exercised self-control to appear professional while verifying Organa's identity and was happy with the way he presented himself. The guard was prepared to take custody of the Jedi with his partner, but when he was mind tricked by Kenobi, he believed that the senator and the Jedi could enter the Grand Convocation Chamber without disruption, and agreed with their suggestions so that he could appear reasonable like them. The guard was weak-minded enough to be susceptible to Kenobi's mind trick, which allowed the Jedi to leave freely without the guard realizing his error.[1]

Behind the scenes[]

The Senate Guard appeared in Matthew Stover's 2005 novelization of the prequel trilogy film Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith.[1]
