this Galacian youth was appointed to escort Qui-Gon Jinn and Obi-Wan Kenobi during their time on Gala. The Jedi had been asked to make sure that democratic elections to determine Queen Veda's successor were fairly completed. Dunn's family had served the monarchy of Gala for many years, and Dunn himself was a valued member of Veda's household. However, those members who served the family had to live in the palace, and rarely saw the rest of the family. Jono himself was proud of his service to the monarchy, and was extremely loyal to Queen Veda. However, when Veda revealed that she wished her successor to be chosen by popular election, Jono figured that he and his family would be thrown out of the castle. His reputation, and that of his family, would be forever that of mere farmers and fishers. He decided to use small amounts of dimilatis leaves to poison her evening tea, in an effort to kill her before the elections could take place. Obi-Wan discovered his part, and revealed it to Qui-Gon. Jono himself was eventually punished and sent home by Wila Prammi, the newly-elected governor of Gala. His sentence was to learn farming and become a normal citizen, not a privileged member of the royal household.
