Rehtul Minnau was the older brother of both the Human female Teckla Minnau and her half-sister Nandi, the former of whom was born on the planet Naboo in the city of Parrlay to a middle-class merchant family. By 32 BBY, Rehtul became a law clerk in the planet's capital city of Theed. Both his sisters lived in his household while attending a private school in the city.
In 32 BBY, the Trade Federation invaded Naboo, with Theed having chaotic street battles hours following the invasion. Both of Rehtul's sisters fled the besieged city and were subsequently separated for days. Following the Naboo victory over the Trade Federation, the sisters were reunited in the subsequent celebration.
Behind the scenes
The name Rehtul Minnau originates from what actor Nathan Hamill decided to call a character that he played in the 1999 prequel trilogy film, Star Wars: Episode I The Phantom Menace. Playing a civilian, Hamill also mentioned his character's role as a spy. In 2008, the name was first used for the Hyperspace feature What's The Story? in author Evan Burger's StarWars.com Databank entry on Teckla Minnau. However, because neither Teckla Minnau's Databank entry nor any preceding material ever linked the Rehtul Minnau name to Hamill's character, this article avoids linking the subjects and also avoids considering Hamill's assertion of the spy role to be canon in regards to the Star Wars Legends continuity.
