- "May I present Lama Su, Prime Minister of Kamino."
- ―Taun We, to Obi-Wan Kenobi
As head of the ruling council of Kamino colony governors, Lama Su was one of the select Kaminoans to deal directly with offworlders. Despite this, he was still rather ignorant of Human customs and behavior. Lama Su during the First Battle of KaminoShortly after the Invasion of Naboo, Lama Su accepted a commission by Jedi Master Sifo-Dyas to create a clone army for the Galactic Republic—his limited knowledge of the wider galaxy giving him no clue as to the massive impact this would have on the Republic. Rather, he recognized how vital cloning was to Kamino's economy, and, ten years after the project began, took it upon himself to personally give visiting Jedi Obi-Wan Kenobi a tour of the facility. He eagerly explained the cloning process, as well as the behavioral conditioning and combat training of the clone troopers, who were now fully trained and ready for combat. He was so focused on making sure that the Kaminoans would obtain their bonus payment for the first shipment of trained clone warriors, that he dismissed Kenobi's seeming lack of knowledge of the army's existence as either a clever test or an elaborate form of politeness.
He later helped the Jedi coordinate the defense of Kamino during the opening stage of the Clone Wars.
Not long after the main cloning program was transferred from Kamino to facilities on Coruscant and Centax-2, Lama Su and Chancellor Palpatine had a falling out, and the Republic's contract with Kamino was nearly finished. Lama Su reflected on the secret regarding the fact that he did not deploy all of the combat-ready clone units to serve the Chancellor.
