Movies Dictionary
Calamari (sometimes called Mons Calamari) is a tectonically stable world almost entirely covered with water, and is home to both the peaceful Mon Calamari and the cautious Quarren-- over 27 billion inhabitants in all. The surface of the planet is covered with small marshy islands and enormous floating cities that house both species, with the Quarren inhabiting the lowest, darkest levels. These attractive constructions include Reef Home, Coral Depths, Kee-Piru, Coral City, Heurkea, and Foamwander City. The architecture and design of the Mon Calamari have organic appearances, with rounded edges and irregular surfaces that show their love for the natural beauty of their world. Raw ores used in construction are mined by the Quarren (who can breathe both air and water) from domed cities on the ocean floor. A permanent history of every event on Calamari is maintained by a community of meter-long, bivalve mollusks, who are extremely intelligent and will communicate their knowledge with those who ask. The Calamarian seas are also home to the dangerous predators known as krakanas-- sharklike animals with twin pincer tentacles. The rare ultima-pearl can be found in Calamari's seabeds. The Mon Calamari had already constructed enormous starships and begun traveling space when their planet was discovered by the Empire. The Imperials planned to enslave Calamari and, after meeting with resistance from its natives, destroyed three of its floating cities. A Quarren, Seggor Tels, is believed to have deliberately lowered Calamari's defenses to allow the Empire's attack; this has heightened tensions between the Mon Calamari and the Quarren ever since. After the Empire showed its true colors, Calamarian starships were converted into warships and the shipbuilding docks in orbit around Calamari and its single moon became an important resource for the Alliance. Many Calamarians were taken as slaves by the Empire including the famous Ackbar, who was forced to be the personal servant of Grand Moff Tarkin. Ackbar was later rescued from slavery by an Alliance force and named Admiral of the Rebel fleet. Six years after the Battle of Endor, the reborn Emperor used his World Devastators to attack Calamari's southern territorial zone, destroying most of the cities Kee-Piru and Heurkea. The port city of Hikahi was also damaged, harming the planet's starship-building capability. One year after that, Leia Organa Solo visited Admiral Ackbar at his home in the seatree forest in an attempt to bring him out of his self-imposed exile. A subsequent attack by Admiral Daala's Star Destroyers resulted in the destruction of Reef Home City. In ancient times Calamari was home to a now-extinct, ten-legged crustacean known as the mammoth krabbex. [DE, GG4, SWS, DA, AAS, DESB, DS, FP, TFJP, YJK]
