Event:
Jinn and Kenobi had survived their ride to Naboo surface and reached the Naboo swamps. After having run into local Gungan Jar Jar Binks and saving him from Trade Federation droids, Jedi decided to go to Otoh Gunga - Gungan underwater city - which they were told about by Jar Jar. Upon reaching Otoh Gunga, Binks was arrested by Captain Tarpals and brought before Boss Nass. The Jedi bartered with Nass, and persuaded him to provide them with transportation to Theed. Following that, Nass sentenced Binks to death, but Jinn quickly interceded, citing that Binks's life belonged to him, due to the Gungan life debt system. Nass had Binks freed and sent along with the Jedi to Theed. Binks was dismayed over the fact that he had to tag along with the Jedi, but he figured that he had a higher chance of survival with them than in Otoh Gunga. Jinn, Kenobi and Binks took the bongo through the series of underwater passages known as "the core," where they encountered a number of dangers. The Jedi's bongo was first caught by an Opee sea killer, but the creature released it when it was devoured by a sando aqua monster. However, the bongo had been damaged and lost its power, causing the Jedi to land the bongo inside a cave, as Kenobi struggled to restore the power. The cave turned out to be the lair of a colo claw fish, which attacked the submersible. Kenobi was able to fix the bongo's issue, escaping from the cave. The colo claw fish pursued them but was devoured by the awaiting sando aqua monster. After avoiding numerous other sea creatures for what seemed like hours, the Jedi finally reached Theed.
