"I need you to convince the Senate, or the Jedi Council, or whoever is in charge of this terrible war that we are threatened."
―Queen Neeyutnee, to Padmé Amidala[1]

Neeyutnee was a human female who served as the Queen of Naboo for much of the Clone Wars. After being elected as the successor to Queen Jamillia, she led her people through the Blue Shadow Virus crisis and other incidents.

Biography[]

Blue Shadow Virus[]

Neeyutnee was born on Naboo prior to the Clone Wars.[1] During the Clone Wars, Neeyutnee was elected as the Queen of Naboo, succeeding Queen Jamillia. She relied on insight and experience offered by Senator Padmé Amidala.[2] In 21 BBY,[4] several Separatist droids infiltrated Naboo. After this discovery, Naboo was placed on high alert as it could lead to another invasion. Because of this, Amidala and Junior Representative Jar Jar Binks came to Naboo to aid in the investigation. When they arrived, Neeyutnee and Captain Typho greeted them. Neeyutnee stated that besides the droids that have already been spotted, there weren't any more and pleaded that Amidala convince the Galactic Senate or the Jedi High Council that Naboo was threatened.[1]

Neeyutnee contacts the Jedi High Council

Later, they came to inspect the Tactical droid TR-350 with Amidala asking Neeyutnee if they received any information. Binks spotted an insect coming out of another battle droid and tried to get it as it was only found in the Eastern swamps. Neeyutnee listened as Amidala's protocol droid, C-3PO, interrogated the tactical droid before Binks inadvertently destroyed it during his chase of the insect. They were able to deduce that the droids came out of the Eastern swamps due to the location. They informed the Jedi Council what they discovered and Amidala convinced them to send Jedi General Obi-Wan Kenobi, Jedi General Anakin Skywalker, and his Padawan Ahsoka Tano. Eventually, it was discovered that the scientist Dr. Nuvo Vindi was trying to revive the Blue Shadow Virus.[1] Vindi was defeated by the Republic and the virus was stopped.[5]

Skirmish on Naboo[]

Neeyutnee thanks Jar Jar Binks for preventing war between the Gungan and Naboo peoples

In 20 BBY, Naboo was again a target for the Separatists with rumors circulating that the Gungans were aiding General Grievous invade the planet. Amidala was sent to investigate along with Skywalker and after a brief skirmish was captured. Neeyutnee witnessed the Separatists come in with Skywalker and ordered that they hand back Grievous in exchange, which they did. Boss Lyonie and Neeyutnee thanked Binks for preventing war against the Naboo and the Gungans a second time.[6]

Skirmish on Theed[]

Neeyutnee after the Festival of Light

Later, Neeyutnee greeted Supreme Chancellor Palpatine to Naboo for the Festival of Light which celebrated the anniversary of when Naboo joined the Republic. That night, bounty hunters led by Count Dooku and Cad Bane attempted to capture Palpatine but was thwarted by Kenobi who was disguised as the bounty hunter Rako Hardeen. The next morning, Neeyutnee was part of a protection group consisting of Amidala and Governor Sio Bibble.[7] She was succeeded by Queen Apailana by 19 BBY.[8]

Legacy[]

In 4 ABY, Queen Sosha Soruna mentioned Neeyutnee's decision to move the fighter operations out of the palace for security measures during the Clone Wars to Princess Leia Organa of Alderaan when the Galactic Empire attacked Naboo as part of Operation: Cinder.[9]

Personality and traits[]

Neeyutnee during the Clone Wars

Measuring 1.69 meters, Neeyutnee had black hair, brown eyes, and light skin.[2] Like other queens of Naboo, she wore makeup with the scar of remembrance. Neeyutnee considered the Clone Wars as being "terrible."[1] She was kind as she thanked Jar Jar Binks for preventing a civil war between the Gungans and the Naboo.[6] She spoke Galactic Basic Standard in an accent.[1]

Behind the scenes[]

Neeyutnee was voiced by Jameelah McMillan in her debut for Blue Shadow Virus.[1] She had a non-speaking role in Crisis on Naboo.[7]

  10. Queen's Shadow establishes that monarchs of Naboo can only reign for, at maximum, two two-year terms. In Queen's Shadow, Padmé Amidala is succeeded by Réillata, who had already served one term in office prior to Amidala's reign, thus limiting her to one more term in office. The novel is set four years after the Invasion of Naboo, which is dated to 32 BBY by Star Wars: Galactic Atlas, dating Réillata's re-election to 28 BBY and the end of her second term to 26 BBY. Queen's Hope, set in 22 BBY, states that Jamillia is nearing the end of her time in office, indicating that she is nearing the end of her second term in office, and thus that she was first elected Queen in 26 BBY, and that her reign ended that year.

The novel is set four years after the Invasion of Naboo, which is dated to 32 BBY by Star Wars: Galactic Atlas, dating Réillata's re-election to 28 BBY and the end of her second term to 26 BBY. According to Star Wars: Geektionary: The Galaxy from A - Z, Jamillia served for four years. Queen's Hope, set in 22 BBY, states that Jamillia is nearing the end of her time in office, indicating that she is nearing the end of her second term in office, and thus that she was first elected Queen in 26 BBY, and that her reign ended that year. Since Neeyutnee's Databank entry states that she was Jamillia's successor and that she was elected early in the Clone Wars, Neeyutnee must have become queen around 22 BBY.
  12. Apailana was depicted as being queen in the film Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith, the events of which Star Wars: Galactic Atlas dates to 19 BBY.
