Supreme Chancellor Palpatine
Palpatine was the last chancellor of the Old Republic, and the mastermind behind the biggest power-grab in galactic history. Practicing forbidden Sith techniques under his alternate identity of Darth Sidious, Palpatine arranged for his public persona to deflect suspicion while receiving praise and political respect. In time he moved from a senator representing Naboo to the Republic’s Supreme Chancellor, and used the power of his office to launch the Clone Wars. With Order 66 bringing about the end of the Jedi Order, Palpatine declared himself Emperor. This marked an end to his “kindly old man” charade with which he had fooled even the wisest members of the Jedi Council.
