Description: Hamato Xiono was a human male senator from the planet Hosnian Prime who served in the New Republic Senate by around 9 ABY. During this time, his ideals for the direction the burgeoning Republic should take directly clashed with warnings from General Hera Syndulla of the Imperial Grand Admiral Thrawn's return, culminating in a failed attempt to court-martial her for disobeying direct orders.

Xiono later became the father, alongside Kazuda's mother, of Kazuda Xiono. During the latter years of the New Republic Era, Senator Xiono facilitated his son's entry into a New Republic Defense Force academy which, in turn, led to Kazuda's service in the New Republic Defense Fleet's Starfighter Corps until he eventually joined the Resistance. When the First Order destroyed Hosnian Prime in 34 ABY, Hamato, Kazuda's mother, and the rest of their family survived, as they had been off-planet during the cataclysm. Following the loss of the New Republic Senate, Senator Xiono contacted his son, warning him of the danger his activity as a Resistance spy had placed his family in.

Biography
Thrawn's return
Senator Hamato Xiono was a politician from the planet Hosnian Prime who served in the Galactic Senate of the New Republic years after the Galactic Civil War, during which he did not serve on either side. Around 9 ABY, Xiono was present in a meeting via hologram alongside New Republic Chancellor Mon Mothma and senators Mawood, Rodrigo, and a Gran senator, during which the group would discuss a report from General Hera Syndulla. As Syndulla made her way to the meeting, Lieutenant Vic Hawkins warned her of Xiono's attendance. After General Syndulla arrived, Xiono interrupted a friendly exchange between her and Chancellor Mothma, urging them to move on with the purpose of the meeting. Syndulla then informed the group of Imperial loyalists that orchestrated an incident on the planet Corellia, expressing her belief that the incident was a sign of greater Imperial activity—the return of Grand Admiral Mitth'raw'nuruodo.

Syndulla then requested approval to lead a task force to the Denab system for investigation, sparking interjection from Xiono, who believed Syndulla was merely attempting to divert New Republic resources toward her search for the missing Jedi Padawan Ezra Bridger. When Syndulla reminded the senator that Ezra's disappearance was related to Thrawn's own whereabouts, Xiono further affirmed his belief, stating that it was merely an excuse and that they should instead aid the people of the New Republic. His statement sparked an inquiry from Syndulla, who asked if he served in the Galactic Civil War. Upon his response that he did not, she then asked if he had just waited to see which side emerged victorious—garnering no response from Xiono.

When Senators Mawood and Rodrigo interjected and concurred with Xiono's stance, Syndulla insisted that Thrawn's capabilities were atypical of an Imperial officer and urged the committee to help her prevent a new war. Xiono, however, remained firm; he insisted that Thrawn was dead and so too was Bridger alongside him. Just as Syndulla snapped at the senator, Mothma spoke up, asking Syndulla to allow her privacy to speak with Xiono and the others in the group. Syndulla obliged and begrudgingly bade the group farewell. She later informed former Jedi Ahsoka Tano and her Padawan Sabine Wren of Xiono and the senators' refusal to aid them.

Syndulla's disobedience
In direct violation of the denial of aid, Syndulla later traveled to the Denab system alongside a squadron led by Captain Carson Teva in order to assist Tano and Wren. The architect droid Huyang expressed surprise at her arrival, assuming the mission was authorized. He was less surprised to learn that Syndulla's actions were in fact unauthorized by the senators. The general surmised that Xiono and the other senators had perhaps been correct in their judgment, though Huyang reassured her otherwise. As a consequence of her actions, the senators sent a small group of New Republic vessels to retrieve her for a hearing on the planet Coruscant, intending to potentially permanently strip her of her rank if she was found out of line.

After Syndulla accompanied the fleet back to Coruscant to attend her hearing, Xiono derided her actions, claiming she was acting as though the New Republic was still the Rebellion. When Syndulla pushed back, stating she was acting with the intent of protecting the New Republic, Xiono rhetorically questioned if ignoring direct orders is what it took for her to do so. Her response was that she was not ignoring the New Republic's orders, but his own. Mothma then intervened, asking if Xiono could at least agree that there was evidence of an incident on the planet Seatos. Xiono agreed but all the while likened the general's report to a child's fairy tale. Syndulla once again reaffirmed that the evidence demonstrated activity of Imperial Remnants, though the senator once again shrugged the idea off, asserting that Imperial numbers were dwindling.

Teva—who was sitting in on the hearing—interjected, reminding Xiono of Moff Gideon and the incident on the planet Mandalore. Senator Xiono rebutted that Gideon acted alone and the threat of Thrawn's return remained unlikely. He then concluded that Syndulla acted for personal gain, and motioned to court-martial her. His motion was interrupted by the sudden arrival of the protocol droid C-3PO, who had been sent on behalf of Senator Leia Organa. C-3PO then requested to present information that would potentially resolve the dilemma, to which Xiono strongly objected, to no avail. The protocol droid then continued, stating that Organa had personally approved Syndulla's mission to Seatos without awareness of Xiono and the Defense Council's prior denial. Senator Xiono once again objected, claiming that the court could not admit evidence from a "mere droid," which offended the astromech droid C1-10P. Chancellor Mothma then declared that C-3PO's evidence had settled the matter, with no further objection from Xiono.

Father to a pilot
When Kazuda attempted to compete in his first race, his father was against it, telling his son that he was not ready. Nonetheless, Kazuda won, proving his father wrong and winning an aurodium trophy. Hamato facilitated his son's service to the New Republic by supporting his enrollment in a New Republic Defense Force academy, further ensuring that Kazuda's training was put to use by helping him join the New Republic Defense Fleet. That allowed Kazuda to pursue his aspirations of becoming a highly skilled pilot in the New Republic Starfighter Corps, though Hamato expected his son to follow in his footsteps as a senator.

Son in the Resistance
In 34 ABY, shortly after his rendezvous with the Resistance during the waning months of the Cold War between the New Republic and the First Order, Kazuda decided to join the Resistance, believing the First Order—a successor state to the Galactic Empire—threatened the Republic's place in the galaxy. After making his choice, the younger Xiono felt compelled to inform Hamato about his decision. Contacting his father via a scrambled hologram transmission on a CR90 corvette, Kazuda intended to ask him for assistance. However, Hamato—who regarded the Resistance as extremists—chastised his son for getting "mixed up" with them, and berated him for asking for assistance, prompting Kazuda to change his mind about asking for his father's help.

After Kazuda had begun his service as a Resistance spy, being deployed to the planet Castilon, he encountered the Aleena Grevel, who harassed him over an allegedly owed 1,500 credits after Kazuda had thrown a holodart into the gorgmonger Bolza Grool. The young Xiono professed that he did not have enough credits on him, but that he could contact his parents to help pay what he owed. Later that same day, Kazuda lamented how much of his life had progressed with his father's intervention and resolved that he would succeed in his mission—as well as his race against racer Torra Doza—without his father's help. During his mission, Hamato's son told the Resistance astromech droid BB-8 about his father's pushback in his childhood, and how his trophy stood as a charm of luck due to his victory in spite of his father.

During the First Order occupation of the supertanker fuel depot Colossus, Kazuda was arrested by stormtroopers and later escaped. Following his escape, First Order Security Bureau agent Tierny showed mechanic Tamara Ryvora Kazuda's New Republic service record on a datapad, which identified Hamato as his father.

The Hosnian Cataclysm
Later during the same year, Kazuda believed that he had the necessary evidence of the First Order's occupation of the Colossus to give to his father for a case in the New Republic Senate. However, the First Order soon rose from the Unknown Regions and proclaimed the end of the New Republic, firing the planet-destroying superweapon Starkiller Base's superlaser and destroying the Hosnian system—including Xiono's homeworld, Hosnian Prime, which was by that point the New Republic's capital. Upon witnessing the cataclysm, Kazuda became horrified, fearing that his father was gone, along with his friends and the Senate.

Following the Battle of Castilon and the Resistance's evacuation from the planet D'Qar, Senator Xiono contacted his son via a special coded message, he and Kazuda's mother having tried to contact him for days. He assured Kazuda that his mother and the rest of their family had survived as they had been off-planet during the cataclysm. When his son urged him to meet the Resistance at D'Qar, Hamato refused, as the First Order had identified Kazuda as a spy. Senator Xiono then warned his son that bounty hunters would be after him before the transmission cut. Despite his father's warning, Kazuda resolved to continue his service to the Resistance.

After Kazuda went on the run alongside the inhabitants of the Colossus, the group eventually found what they believed to be refuge on the planet Aeos Prime. Choosing to continue the fight against the First Order, the younger Xiono resolved to leave and join the Resistance's forces. He then bid Captain Imanuel Doza of the Colossus farewell, explaining that he understood that, while Doza and the Colossus' inhabitants wished to stay out of the fight, it was not who he was in spite of his father's wishes. However, Kazuda remained with the Colossus following the First Order's arrival on the planet.

Personality and traits
Hamato Xiono was a human male. He had tan skin and pronounced cheekbones, and his eyes were dark brown in hue. Around 9 ABY, he had some stubbled facial hair and the hair—which was black—on his head extended to the base of his neck, though in 34 ABY he was clean-shaven and his hair—now a light shade of brown with graying stripes—was short-cut.

Despite his allegiance to the New Republic, General Hera Syndulla accused Senator Xiono of waiting out the Galactic Civil War to see which side of it came out on top. Additionally, he was opposed to the idea that any lingering Imperial remnants posed a threat to the New Republic and believed the New Republic's focus should be on helping its own citizens rather than waging war. He regarded the Resistance as a band of extremists and was disturbed by his son mentioning their organization. Xiono had a degree of anti-droid sentiment, believing that evidence provided by droids during legal proceedings was illegitimate.

Coming from a position of wealth and influence, the senator was able to support his son Kazuda Xiono's aspirations to become a New Republic pilot. Although Hamato was willing to aid Kazuda in his endeavors, he felt that his son relied on him for everything—from entering the academy to joining the New Republic Navy. Adversely, Kazuda felt that his father's support was not for him, but for his father himself. Ultimately, Kazuda kept his relationship with the Resistance a secret from his father, hoping to achieve something on his own without the senator's help for once. Likewise, Kazuda believed that his father—and other senators like him—would not recognize the First Order as a threat even with intel revealing their operations, such as weapons manufacturing. However, upon learning of his family's survival of the Hosnian Cataclysm, Kazuda urged his father to find the Resistance, a request Hamato refused, believing it would place their family in too much danger.

Equipment
During his meeting with Chancellor Mothma and General Syndulla and Syndulla's later court-martial hearing around 9 ABY, Hamato Xiono wore a green wrapped tunic. During his transmission to Kazuda in 34 ABY, he wore a red, sleeveless tunic gilded with gold trimmings and shoulderpads, as well as a black undershirt with gray and gold cufflinks at the end of each sleeve. He also wore a black belt with a gold trim, and gray pants that had a gold stripe on the outer side of each leg. His boots were black with three straps on each, and he wore black gloves. He bore a gold insignia on his chest.

Value is a Knowledge skill. Also, considering he was one of the judges at Hera's trial, shouldn't he have law enforcement too?

I'd argue this guy doesn't need Law Enforcement, in order to reflect his lack of knowledge in such matters, relying instead on the power of his position and title to get his way, such as making himself present at Hera's trial/court martial/thingy, and also using his superior knowledge of politics to take that trial and make a political maneuvering game....which he did. With that being said, this character does have Bureaucracy listed, as well as Persuasion and Command, which could be used to sway crowds in his favor. It's not always about having a skill, it's also about how you use them, apply them, in the game. The way this guy is built, it does reflect how his character acted in the Ahsoka series.
