Though the Gungans are naturally powerful swimmers, they do rely on submersible vehicles to travel the depths of Naboo's waters. One of their most striking technological achievements is the Gungan bongo submarine. Sporting the distinctive organic lines of Gungan technology, the bongo's manta-shaped hull is organically grown through secret Gungan techniques. Hydrostatic bubble shields keep the cockpit and cargo areas dry and filled with air. A semi-rigid assembly of tentacle-like fins spins to provide the bongo with thrust. From a distance, the bongo resembles an exotic Naboo squid or similar creature of the deep.
A powerful, aquatic carnivore lurking near Naboo's core. The monstrous animal has long jaws filled with pointed teeth. Its forelegs end in wicked claws, and sharp protrusions jut from its luminescent tail. The colo claw fish hides in underwater tunnels, where it sits motionless for hours until suitable prey passes by. When it spots a victim, the beast erupts from its lair and grabs the meal in its claws. Although quite fearsome, the colo claw fish is no match for the enormous sando aqua monster.
A fearsome leviathan lurking the waters of Naboo, the sando aqua monster is aptly named for its prodigious size and monstrous appetite. Its huge mouth can swallow most other sea creatures -- or even a Gungan sub -- in a single gulp. Its heavily muscled body is almost feline in appearance, with sinewy limbs terminating in massively finned claws that propel the creature through the depths.
A venerable if maverick Jedi Master, Qui-Gon Jinn was a student of the living Force. Qui-Gon lived for the moment, espousing a philosophy of "feel, don't think -- use your instincts." On Tatooine, Qui-Gon discovered a young slave boy named Anakin Skywalker who was strong in the Force. Sensing the boy's potential, Qui-Gon liberated Anakin from slavery. The Jedi Master presented Anakin to the Jedi Council, but they deemed the boy too old to begin training and dangerously full of fear and anger. They refused to allow Qui-Gon to train Anakin, but rescinded their decision to fulfill Qui-Gon's dying wish.
A clumsy, well-meaning Gungan outcast on Naboo, Jar Jar Binks struggled to prove his worth throughout his life. Putting his awkward past behind him, Jar Jar left the swamps of Naboo to enter the even murkier waters of Coruscant politics, becoming a representative for his people in the galactic capital. There, his best intentions and eagerness to serve were exploited by scheming Senators and others in positions of power.
