Ion Papanoida was a male Pantoran and son of chairman N. Papanoida of Pantora, with whom he served in the Galactic Senate during the Clone Wars.

Sphere of Influence

In 22 BBY, Ion's two sisters, Chi Eekway and Che Amanwe Papanoida, were kidnapped by Bounty hunters who were hired by the Trade Federation as leverage against their father, Chairman Papanoida, part of a plot to sway Pantora into joining the Confederacy of Independent Systems. Though Count Dooku contacted Ion, offering his condolences and assistance in finding them, Papanoida took the investigation into his own hands. While Senator Riyo Chuchi traveled to the Federation blockade of Pantora to discuss negotiations, Ion and his father looked around their apartment for clues, finding blood on one of their goddess icons, tracing it back to a Rodian bounty hunter named Greedo.

They then went to Tatooine in search of Greedo, discovering him at Jabba the Hutt palace. Though Greedo and his allies attempting to dispose of the two Pantorans, chairman Papanoida managed to break free and get Jabba's attention; Papanoida proved to him that Greedo was responsible for the kidnapping of his two daughters, and the Rodian agreed to take them to a Cantina where he had hidden Che.

As his accomplices released her, however, Greedo spurred on a firefight and fled. Ion and his father dispatched the bounty hunters, with Che saving her brother's life. The family returned to Coruscant to find that Chuchi and Padawan Ahsoka Tano had also liberated Chi and the Trade Federation formally apologized for the incident, removing their blockade as a symbol of friendship.
