History[edit | edit source]
After Boss Rugor Nass brokered peace with Queen Amidala of Naboo in 32 BBY, a number of more extremist Gungans violently opposed to any alliance between humans and Gungans and fled to Rori, the moon of Naboo. These Rorgungans established the swamp town deep within the swamps of Rori, as a place to live in isolation from the outside world. The Gungans who lived there were very hostile to outsiders.
By the time of the Battle of Yavin, the Rorgungan commander Captain Hassk and Lieutenants Ori and Heb Nee were notable residents of the swamp town. From there, Captain Hassk intended to recruit Gungans from Naboo to support the Rorian Gungans in their fight against the Galactic Empire.
