An Old Friend
- "As Council of Five, we are honored but surprised that you have traveled all this way for a mere bank transfer."
"A transfer that has not been forthcoming. By request of the Supreme Chancellor, I am here to expedite matters."
"Of course. We would merely request that you meet with our special representative who will go over the terms and conditions of your loan."
- ―Clu Lesser and Padmé Amidala, meeting about the Republic humanitarian aid loan
Clu Lesser sat at the head of the Core Five council when senator Padmé Amidala traveled to Scipio to receive a loan from the Banking Clan for refugee aid. Lesser introduced her to Rush Clovis, their representative for the transaction. However, Padmé refused his involvement on the grounds that Clovis had a history of being a Separatist conspirator. After an attack of Padmé's quarters over information Clovis possessed, she allowed Clovis to be present on the condition that she be allowed in the Vault. Lesser was horrified at the concept of an outsider being permitted in the vault, but at Clovis's insistence, the council agreed.
