About: “An important political figure from the waning days of the Galactic Republic…she signed the Corellian Treaty…in order to form the Alliance to Restore the Republic..She played an important role in the…Galactic Civil War…and after the Rebel victory at the Battle of Endor, she became the first Chief of State of the newly founded New Republic. She also had a daughter, Lieda, and a son, Jobin” (starwars.wikia).

She was elected Senator for the Bormea sector at age 19, “becoming the youngest senator ever to serve–a record later broken by Leia Organa, future apprentice and colleague of Mothma.

…Mothma was kind and caring, yet sometimes forgot herself when dealing in politics, which often seemed to claim importance over everything else in her life. She was a daring woman with charisma and political savvy…As a senator, Mothma was a proponent of the rights of local systems.”
