The Battle of Mon Cala, also known as the Battle of Mon Calamari, was fought during the Clone Wars on the aquatic world of Mon Cala. The battle was a result of a schism between the Mon Calamari and Quarren species who lived on the planet, as the Quarrens rebelled against the Mon Calamari with the support of the Confederacy of Independent Systems. The Grand Army of the Republic, Jedi Order,[3] and the Gungan Grand Army came to the defense of the Mon Calamari to fight the invading Separatist Droid Army.[6] The Mon Calamari and the Quarren reunified by the battle's end, and the Separatists were repelled.[5]


During the Clone Wars, the King of Mon Cala, Yos Kolina was found murdered. This left his son, Prince Lee-Char to maintain peaceful coexistence between the Mon Calamari and Quarren. During this time, the Quarren Isolation League under Chieftain Nossor Ri believed that the prince was too young and wanted a Quarren king. During this time, the Separatist Alliance ambassador, Commander Riff Tamson started to stir up the arguments between the Mon Calamari and Quarren. Mon Calamari Guard Captain Gial Ackbar then asked the Republic to send Senator Padmé Amidala and her bodyguard, Jedi General Anakin Skywalker, to help mediate the dispute.[3]

However, the Quarren refused the Republic's intervention and ended the negotiations. Before leaving, Ri offered his condolences to the young prince on his loss. Amidala, Skywalker and Ackbar then contacted Jedi Council members Yoda and Mace Windu, informing them of the impending civil war between the Mon Cala and Quarren. Windu thus dispatched a regiment of SCUBA trooper under General Kit Fisto and Commander Ahsoka Tano. He also told Ackbar to prepare Mon Cala's military for the fight.[3]

Mon Cala's senator, Meena Tills then appointed Ackbar as the prince's personal protector, much to his chagrin.[3] Tamson was then contacted by Count Dooku, who dispatched Trident-class assault ships and Aqua droids to bolster the quarren forces. Tamson told Dooku that Ri and the Quarren were with them completely. However, Dooku promised that Mon Cala would be his to control.[3]

At Mon Cala city, the prince reassured his people that the Quarren would not attack them.[3]

The BattleEdit

Battle for Mon Cala cityEdit

Tamson then led charge of the Quarren and the Aqua droids against the Mon Calamari at the city. They held their ground alongside Skywalker. Skywalker urged Ackbar to take the prince out of the war zone. However, the prince refused to leave his people.[3]

Republic reinforcements then arrived. Rex, Fisto and Tano then deployed the SCUBA troopers from the gunships along with several OMS Devilfish subs to reinforce the Mon Calamari forces. Tamson tore his through the clones and Mon Calamari. Skywalker then briefly lost his helmet to a pair of Quarren soldiers. Tano then gave him his helmet back.[3]
