A progressive diplomat of ancient and distinguished lineage, Finis Valorum is Chancellor of the Galactic Senate. But this high position is successfully challenged by another progressive, Queen Amidala. It is Amidala, who introduces a devastating Vote of No Confidence in Valorum after the Trade Federation invasion of Naboo goes unchecked. However, Amidala is manipulated by Senator Palpatine into taking this drastic course, and regrets disgracing the Chancellor, but feels there is no other way to rescue her people.
