The Mon Cal Knights was a Mon Cala-based military organization that was active by the time of the Clone Wars. It was made up of Mon Calamari, a sentient species that shared Mon Cala with the Quarren. During the Clone Wars, a group of Quarren allied themselves with the Confederacy of Independent Systems, an alliance of solar systems that seceded from the Galactic Republic. The Mon Cal Knights fought against the Confederacy-aligned Quarren on their shared homeworld. Artoz, who was a member of the Mon Cal Knights at the time, later became a starship systems engineer.
Behind the scenesEdit
The Mon Cal Knights originated in the fifth chapter of Star Wars: Clone Wars, an animated series directed and produced by Genndy Tartakovsky. In that episode, the Knights managed to fight off the Quarren Isolation League with the help of the Jedi Master Kit Fisto. However, that series is part of the Star Wars Legends continuity, formerly known as the "Expanded Universe," and is therefore not official canon. The Mon Cal Knights were partially integrated into canon in November 2014, with the release of James Luceno's novel Tarkin.
