"Outta the way, swamp-man."
―A Gotal speeder bike rider, nearly colliding with Jar Jar Binks on a Coruscant street[src]

In 32 BBY,[3] this male Gotal[1][2] was riding his red speeder bike down a street on the planet Coruscant. When the Gungan Jar Jar Binks ran into a street without looking for oncoming traffic, the Gotal narrowly avoided a collision with the Gungan. The speeder bike rider yelled angrily at Binks to get out of the thoroughfare. The Gotal, who had shaggy, brown fur, light brown skin, and long, brown claws, was considered ugly by Anakin Skywalker, Binks's Human companion, who had opted to stay on the sidewalk. The Gotal wore olive-green trousers, brown and black boots, and a fuzzy, black collar with white trim.[4]

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]

This Gotal appears as a minor character in the 1999 children's book Anakin to the Rescue, written by Cecilia Venn and published by Random House. The Gotal was illustrated by Chris Trevas.
