Jar Jar Binks was the first Gungan to represent his people in the Galactic Senate, first serving as a Junior Representative along with Senator Padm Amidala, and then, after her death, serving as full Senator himself. Like most Gungans, Jar Jar was lanky and spoke Basic with a unique accent. Despite being nave and clumsy, Jar Jar Binks contributed greatly to the fate of the Galactic Republic, both for good and ill. He was a General, Representative, and later a Senator.

Jar Jar was also one of Qui-Gon Jinn's companions during the Invasion of Naboo, traveling to distant worlds such as Tatooine and Coruscant, an activity not taken up by many Gungans. On his return to Naboo, He served as a General for a short while in the Gungan Grand Army, and was a joint commander of the Battle of Grassy Plains with General Ceel. Binks later helped his people colonize the nearby Naboo moon Ohma-D'un. During his career as Junior Representative, he acted as Amidala's proxy and proposed giving Supreme Chancellor Palpatine emergency powers in order to deal with the Separatist Crisis. Binks continued his public service even after the death of Amidala, taking her place as Senator.

"Jar Jar Binks is a clumsy gun-gan who was raised in the hidden cities in the lakes of Naboo. He was banished because he was so clumsy he caused many disasters. During the invasion of Naboo a jedi named Qui-Gon Jinn saved Jar Jar from being ran over. Jar Jar gave him a life debt for it. He showed the jedi the secret cities, and guided him threw the middle of the planet. They went to the remote planet Tatooine with the queen of Naboo to get parts. They went to Coresaunt after that. They later went back to Naboo under the queen's command. Jar Jar was made a genral for the war. Many years later Jar Jar was made a senetor. He was seen at Padme Amidala's funeral."
