this was the alias used by one of two Almas Academy Jedi - the other was simply known as Nute - who approached Yara Grugara about doing an interview on the current state of the galaxy, in the wake of the Clone Wars and the formation of the first Galactic Empire. The two Jedi, under visual and audio anonymity, tried to explain why the balance of the Force had been upset by the rise to power of Emperor Palpatine. Rune's position was that the Jedi Order may have brought about its own destruction by refusing to acknowledge that the Force had a Light Side and a Dark Side. By teaching Padawans only about the Light Side, the Jedi created an artificial imbalance in the Force. Rune became upset when Nute tried to deflect this line of reasoning as unnecessarily fatalistic, especially when Yara questioned whether or not the Jedi should have taught their students more about the Sith. When Rune agreed with this statement, Nute boisterously disagreed, which further raised Rune's emotions. Nute then tried to explain that the Jedi were only concerned with doing was was right, and Rune's emotional control broke. He drew on power from the Dark Side of the Force and tried to strangle Nute, and Yara was powerless to intervene. The broadcast ended with Rune screaming at Nute about balance, as Nute struggled to draw a breath.

Known as a ruthless businessbeing who viewed his associates as enemies, Haako was the only one of the Neimoidian leaders to ever have encountered the Jedi Knights. Rune Haako strongly disliked direct confrontation, and developed skills in stealthy attacks as a result. During the search for Hath Monchar, it was Haako who suggested to Gunray that they employ Mahwi Lihnn to hunt the rogue Neimoidian down. Later, after the blockade of Naboo had been started, he was extremely distrubed to learn that Qui-Gon Jinn and Obi-Wan Kenobi had been dispatched to Naboo. When Darth Sidious had Daultay Dofine demoted for questioning his plans, Haako was promoted into Dofine's position. Together, Haako and Gunray managed to carry out the Sith Lord's plans agains the Naboo and the Gungans, but were unable to completely control the planet. They were captured during the Battle of Naboo by Queen Amidala and her forces, and were returned to Coruscant for trial. Like the rest of the Trade Federation's leadership, Rune Haako was allowed to go free after what amounted to a slap on the wrist, much to the dismay of the inhabitants of Naboo. In the wake of the Republic's victory at the Battle of Geonosis, Rune Haako fled with Nute Gunray and the Separatist leaders to several remote worlds, always trying to remain one step ahead of their Jedi pursuers. After hiding on Utapau under the protection of General Grievous, the Separatists were taken to Mustafar. It was there, after Darth Sidious finally lured Anakin Skywalker to the Darth Side of the Force, that the Separatist leaders met their deaths. Skywalker was dispatched to Mustafar by Sidious himself, with orders to eliminate them. Skywalker eventually killed Haako, before setting off after the rest of the Separatist leaders. Rune Haako was acted by Jerome Blake and voiced by James Taylor in Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace.

They would remain on the other planet for nine years, learning about the other society. During this time, the children were allowed to receive visitors from, and occasionally visit, their homeworld, so that they never forgot their heritage. At the age of sixteen, the youths were allowed to return home in preparation for taking over as ruler of their homeworld.
