From the MoviesA tall, lithesome alien, Lama Su is the Prime Minister of the storm-shrouded planet Kamino. Commissioned by an enigmatic Jedi Master named Sifo-Dyas, Lama Su developed an impressive clone army of thousands of troops. Far removed from galactic affairs by virtue of Kamino's remote location, and the natural Kaminoan predilection for isolation, Lama Su never questioned the role of the army or its eventual use in the Clone Wars. He simply took great pride in the skills displayed by those in his employ.
From the Expanded UniverseLama Su is the head of the ruling council of Kamino colony governors. As such, he is one of the few Kaminoans to deal directly with outlanders, but it has hardly made him worldly. He recognizes the importance of cloning to Kamino's economy, and took it upon himself to personally give visiting Jedi Obi-Wan Kenobi a tour of the facility. His unfamiliarity with human behavior and his eagerness to impress his client caused him to overlook his Jedi guest's apparent ignorance of the cloning project.
Behind the ScenesEarly in the development of the Kaminoans, the idea of the culture being androgynous was explored. Their voices were at first heavily modulated, giving them an eerie, alien timbre, but when that got in the way of delivering understandable dialogue of important exposition, this approach was dropped.
