Mas Amedda, the Speaker of the Senate, is truly a sad case of an ambitious and overconfident politician being outwitted and outmaneuvered by a far superior strategist- in this case, a Sith Lord posing as the Supreme Chancellor of the Republic.
Mas Amedda begins his political career as the Senator of Champala, the Chagrian homeworld. Though he thinks of himself as incorruptible, he quickly falls in with manipulative delegates, including Senator Orn Free Taa of Ryloth, who nominates Amedda to the position of Speaker shortly before the Trade Federation commences its blockade of Naboo. Amedda, something of an idealist, believes that he can use his position to restore order and eliminate corruption in the Senate, unaware that this same corruption has secured his position. It is his obsession with orderly proceedings that make him such an excellent pawn.
Although Amedda knows he does not have the political influence to become Supreme Chancellor himself, he believes that he can easily use his superior knowledge of the Republic bureaucracy to manipulate the Chancellor, and, in truth, his tactics work well with Supreme Chancellor Valorum. After Palpatine succeeds Valorum, things seem to go much more smoothly, and Palpatine seems as easy to control as a broken down farm eopie. The new Supreme Chancellor agrees to nearly every measure that the Speaker suggests, and Amedda believes that he has achieved his greatest political victory.
However, as worlds begin seceding from the Republic to join The Confederacy of Independent Systems, Mas Amedda gradually becomes aware that Palpatine is the true master of manipulation. Mas Amedda becomes increasingly suspicious of Palpatine's every move, and, when four Jedi Masters from the High Council come to arrest the Supreme Chancellor, the Chagrian finally sees what a fool he has been.
