"Shoota' them up real good!"
―General Ceel[src]

Tobler Ceel was a male Gungan who served as General during the years preceding the Clone Wars.


Ceel was the ranking officer of the Gungan army and was placed in command of the assembled Grand Army during the Battle of Grassy Plains.

Ceel answered to Boss Rugor Nass and begrudgingly accepted the order to promote Jar Jar Binks to his council of officers. Hoping to keep Binks from harming their chances of victory, Ceel gave him no real responsibilities.

Before the battle, Ceel and his command staff devised a holding action to distract the Trade Federation's droid army while Queen Padmé Amidala and her Naboo forces infiltrated Theed. Ceel commanded a large number of militiagungs during the battle. After the Gungan army was forced into retreat, Ceel was unable to regroup his forces. He was saved by Bravo Squadron's destruction of the Droid Control Ship.

Behind the scenesEdit

Tobler Ceel was present in drafts of The Phantom Menace but was not included in the film, with his lines going instead to Captain Tarpals.[1]
