|Chronological and political information|
The laws of Rutan and Senali made the kings of the planet and the moon exchange their first-borns when they were seven years old in order to avoid a war. Taroon wanted to be the King instead of his brother, but his father saw him as the clumsier and weaker of his sons. When Leed insinuated that he wanted to stay at Senali, Taroon drew up a plan. He knew that it would be an argument between Frane and Leed. He hired some Rutanians to kidnap his brother and act as a marginal clan in the moon, in order to make everyone think that Leed was the leader of this clan. Then, he planned an attack with tracker droids against Frane's neks, in order to blame Leed. This would have caused the threat of war to become apparent, although he did not think that actual conflict would occur. The fight would make Leed stay at Senali, and Taroon the only successor in Rutan. However, his father called in Jedi assistance to bring Leed home. Through some complications, Qui-Gon Jinn was able to deduce that Taroon was behind all the strange events. Finally, King Frane accepted Leed's wish to stay on Senali and agreed with Taroon to name him as the future King of Rutan. He later fell in love with Drenna.
