"It has come to my attention that my mother was murdered by Count Dooku in cold blood!"
"That is a lie! Remove this traitor immediately."
Lux Bonteri and Bec Lawise, at the peace conference on Mandalore[src]

Bec Lawise was a male Siniteen who worked as a senator and leader of the Separatist Congress of the Confederacy of Independent Systems during the Clone Wars. He was a strong supporter of Count Dooku within the congress but also respected his Republic senator counterparts, as demonstrated at the Confederate–Republic Peace Conference.


A Friend in Need[]

"I apologize for such a rude interruption. Please let us continue."
―Bec Lawise, after Bonteri is escorted out[src]

Bec Lawise was present among the Separaist Senators that met with Republic senators Padmé Amidala, Bail Organa and Mon Mothma on Mandalore for a Peace Conference. While the Republic was willing to negotiate, the Confederacy refused unless their government was declared legitimate without reservation. As the talks progressed, Lux Bonteri entered the Palace and testified about the Confederacy's legitimacy, claiming that his mother, the late senator Mina Bonteri, was murdered by Count Dooku himself.

Angered by the accusation, Lawise ordered Bonteri's immediate removal. He then formally apologized and let the conference continue. Unfortunately, soon following the incident, the talks collapsed and both sides returned to their respective capital worlds.

Crisis at the Heart[]

"Either you are with us or you are against us. [To his Battle Droids] Arrest her."
"We can't do this, Dooku. The Separatist Senate will never approve! ... No. No! No!"
―Dooku arrests Senator Amidala and subsequently manipulates her to kill Lawise when he protested[src]

Lawise learns of Dooku's true nature as Amidala is forced to shoot him.

Lawise also represented the Separatists on Scipio when Rush Clovis became head of the InterGalactic Banking Clan, while the Republic was represented by Padmé Amidala. Both Senators gave Clovis their approval and oversaw the transfer of power. However, Count Dooku used Clovis as a pawn to launch an invasion of Scipio, in which Amidala was captured. Upon learning Dooku's true intentions, Lawise voiced an objection that the Separatist Senate would not approve. But when Amidala took a blaster from one of her guards, Dooku used the Force to redirect her aim onto Lawise and fire, killing the latter instantly.
