Seggor Tels was a Quarren from Calamari. He was the embodiment of the friction betweem the Quarren and their planetary neighbors, the Mon Calamari. He felt that his own race was being neglected by the Mon Cal, whom he felt were taking all the glory for the work the Quarren had done to build the planet's floating cities. He resented the Mon Cal for their dreams and their ambitions. He felt that the Mon Cal had relegated the Quarren to living the bowels of the planet's floating cities, even though they were designed that way. He resented the fact that Ackbar and the Calamarian Council wanted to make contact with the Empire. So, when an Imperial agent slipped past the planet's defenses and approached him, he felt that he could strike out at the Mon Cal by providing the Empire with the codes to evade Calamari's defenses. His hope, that the Empire would cut the Mon Cal down to size, was quickly turned to despair as the Empire enslaved by Mon Cal and Quarren without prejudice. When the Mon Cal began resisting the Imperial yoke, Seggor Tels again laughed at them. However, the forced slavery began to work at his conscience, and he began to wonder whether he should join the Mon Cal rebellion or not. When the Calamarians heard about the Alliance, Seggor Tels rallied the Quarren to join the Mon Cal, despite all their hatred, and together they drove off the Empire and freed Calamari. To this day, Seggor Tels thanks the Imperials - not the Mon Cal - for showing them how to fly to the stars and begin life again somewhere else.
