According to material published as part of the Expanded Universe, Valorum comes from an ancient and distinguished family, and at least one of his ancestors had served as Chancellor in the past. This background, ironically, works against him, as many come to believe he had been elected solely because of his famous surname. Valorum's appropriate first name, Finis (which means "the end"), was first mentioned in Expanded Universe material. Actually, his full name is Latin for "the end of values," as if pressaging the imminent fall of the Republic; it finds an echo in Padmé's consterned statement that "so this is how liberty ends." The Expanded Universe (or EU for short) is an extensive collection of fictional background material from the Star Wars universe that is derived from official novels, comic books, and various other media besides the movies themselves. ...

Valorum was killed shortly after the Battle of Geonosis, in a terrorist attack that was attributed to Separatists. However, Valorum had earlier been meeting with Senator Bail Organa, and had revealed that he was suspicious about Palpatine's political maneuverings. It is reasonable to conclude that the future Emperor had orchestrated Valorum's death.
