"Sir! They've gone up the ventilation shaft!"
―Tey How[src]

Tey How was the female cyborg Neimoidian communications officer for the Trade Federation Lucrehulk-class battleship Saak'ak. Her vocabulator and data goggles allowed direct communication with the ship. She was also the pilot.

She was present when the two Jedi Qui-Gon Jinn and Obi-Wan Kenobi attempted to break into the bridge shortly before the Invasion of Naboo began. She informed her superiors that they lost communication with the Battle Droid unit dispatched to ensure the Jedi were destroyed (under the belief that the Dioxis gas killed them), before sealing the bridge at Gunray's command. After Kenobi and Jinn were forced to retreat from the Droidekas, How informed her superiors that the two Jedi had entered the ventilation shafts.

During the Battle of Naboo, she was stationed aboard the Droid Control Ship Vuutun Palaa and under Captain Daultay Dofine's orders launched the droid forces after the N-1 starfighters. After Anakin Skywalker destroyed the ship's main reactor with two proton torpedoes and set off a chain reaction, How made her soon-to-be final damage report to Dofine, who dismissed it as "impossible" and that a starfighter could never have penetrated the ship's deflector shields. How was later killed, along with her Captain and cohorts inside the ship, when the chain reaction triggered by the main reactor's destruction caused the control computer console to explode in front of the crew, just as the bridge was incinerated by the explosion.[2]

Personality and traits

A female[1] Neimoidian,[3] Tey How had mottled gray skin[5] and red eyes.[4]

Behind the scenes

Tey How was voiced by Amanda Lucas, credited in the movie as Tyger. Star Wars Episode I: I Am a Pilot identifies the Neimoidian pilot as a male.

In the CCG card game, Tey How's likeness was erroneously used to depict the character Sil Unch.

In Star Wars: Episode I — The Phantom Menace 4, How was mistakenly drawn with green skin and without her cybernetics, revealing her to have red eyes.[4]
