Yellow and Brown
The mee, or daggert, was a poisonous scalefish native to the waters of the Mid Rim planet of Naboo. Mee were rotund yet flat, with black and yellow scales, a wide mouth, and a set of poisonous spines which protruded from its midsection. With its diagonal striping pattern, it could camouflage itself and blend into its surroundings, such as sea grasses and reeds. They largely resided within Lake Paonga, around the underwater Gungan city of Otoh Gunga.
Mee were poisonous scalefish native to the oceans of Naboo, but also found on Aquilaris. It was a most plentiful species, traveling in schools of thousands, and a staple food source of many other species, such as the opee sea killer and otta. The mee were only poisonous in the spine, but the poison could spread to holes in its body and eject into the surrounding waters.[source?]
The typical mee possessed a rotund, though vertically flat body, with black-and-yellow scales, a wide mouth and a pair of poisonous spines that protruded from the side. Its diagonal striping served as camouflage, allowing it to blend into sea grasses and reeds. On Naboo, the mee were commonly found in the area around the underwater Gungan city Otoh Gunga, attracted by the underwater city's lights, however, knew by experience not to go through the gelatinous substance that led to the air-filled chambers.
Mee evolved in the waters of the Mid Rim planet Naboo. Some mee were present in Lake Paonga as of the Invasion of Naboo in 32 BBY as Jedi Knight Qui-Gon Jinn, his Padawan Obi-Wan Kenobi, and their Gungan scout Jar Jar Binks swam to the underwater Gungan city of Otoh Gunga to speak with local representatives.
Behind the scenesEdit
The mee, along with the doo, ray, faa, see, laa, and tee, refer to the real-world musical scale (i.e. Do, Re, Mi, Fa, So, La, Ti, Do). They made their first appearance in the 1999 prequel trilogy film Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace, as well as appearing in associated materials such as Star Wars: Episode I Racer, Star Wars Episode I: The Gungan Frontier, and the Daniel Wallace short story The Monster in Star Wars Gamer 2. Later references to the mee were made in Star Wars: Republic and the 2007 Legacy of the Force novel Sacrifice.
