this man was the primary advisor to King Veruna of Naboo. It was Lago, along with Senator Palpatine, who began advising Veruna to make offworld alliances. When word of Veruna's shady off-world dealings began to leak out, Kun Lago publically denounced Amidala, hoping to deflect attention from Veruna by blaming the young girl for the problems. When Kun learned that his son, Ian, was in love with Amidala, he went into a furious rage and disowned Ian. After Veruna abdicated and replaced by Queen Amidala, Lago's political career was ruined and he was forced into poverty.
