The Gungans

Jar Jar Binks

Long before galactic strife enveloped his native Naboo, Jar Jar Binks was exiled from the underwater city of Otoh Gunga. His main sin? Being clumsy in front of the head of his clan. An outcast, the Gungan bides his time in the Naboo swampland, surviving on raw shellfish or just about anything else that the murky ecosystem has to offer. Jar Jar's fate takes a twist when the hapless Gungan encounters a pair of Jedi as they elude enemy forces at the beginning of the Trade Federation invasion of Naboo. Although his bungling, haphazard mannerisms constantly land him in hot water, his good nature and loyalty somehow help him triumph in the end.

Boss Nass

Boss Nass is the stern, authoritarian leader of Otoh Gunga, the large underwater city on Naboo. Always wary of contact with humans and other "outlanders," the ruler prefers to keep the Gungan culture isolated from his home planet's surface inhabitants. His distinctive green skin color differs from other Gungans, revealing his Ankura Gungan lineage. A fair but stubborn ruler, Boss Nass has grown large and prosperous in his advancing years. He is instrumental in the liberation of Naboo from the Trade Federation.

Captain Tarpals

Aged, mature, and somewhat pompous, Captain Tarpals commands a patrol squad protecting Otoh Gunga from anything that might threaten the Gungan population. In his years of service, the Gungan soldier has seen many threats come and go, including a variety of lethal sea creatures that roam the murky depths surrounding his underwater city. He has also grown weary of another "menace" to Otoh Gunga: the clumsy antics of Gungan-in-exile Jar Jar Binks. He plays a prominent role during the Battle of Naboo.
