The Mon Calamari, also occasionally known as Mon Cal, Calamari, Calamarians or Mon Calamarians, were an octopoid species from the planet Dac (also known as Mon Calamari).

Physiology and Culture

Mon Calamari were squid-like amphibious humanoids with domed heads, webbed hands, and large eyes. Most Mon Calamari had salmon-colored skin, often mottled with light and dark patterns, though examples of blue and silver skinned Mon Calamari were known. They could also descend to depths of up to 30 meters below sea level without breathing. Mon Calamari could stay underwater for a long period of time and did not need to decompress when resurfacing.

The Mon Calamari had developed a very civilized culture. Art, music, literature, and science were the pinnacle of galactic culture. Mon Calamari literature depicted stars as islands in a galactic sea. This showed a passionate longing to explore space and discover other civilizations.

The Mon Calamari shared their planet with the Quarren, the Whaladons, the Moappa, and the Knowledge Bank. Their history has been marked by tension with the Quarren. Unlike the other species, their civilization was centered in the shallow parts of the ocean and on Dac's few islands. This gave them a technological head start over the planet's other people, especially the Quarren of the ocean depths.

The Mon Calamari eventually joined the Rebel Alliance, proving an invaluable asset in the Galactic Civil War. This was primarily due to the Mon Calamari being masters of starship construction and supplying the Alliance with badly needed Mon Calamari Star Cruisers. The Mon Cals would continue to serve its successor governments, the New Republic and the Galactic Alliance
