this small-time criminal operated on the planet Naboo, during the period leading up to the Battle of Naboo. Daal was contacted by the Trade Federation's secret agents, and was supplied with funds to hire freelance mercenaries to help knock out Naboo's communications relays, in order to isolate Naboo during the Federation's invasion of the planet. Once the relays were knocked out, the Federation could deploy its jamming satellites in orbit, effectively cutting Naboo off from the rest of the galaxy. Although ultimately successful in hiring the freelancers, Daal was later captured by the Naboo Royal Security Force and detained for questioning.
