Mot-Not Rab was a male Tarnab senator in the Galactic Republic during the time of the Clone Wars.


When fellow Senator Padmé Amidala of Naboo suggested that the Republic negotiate with the Confederacy of Independent Systems, Rab spoke that they could not negotiate with such "animals," declaring to keep the war going and demanded to vote then and there. This caused many Senators to start chanting for the vote. However, Speaker of the Senate Mas Amedda ended the session. Mot-Not Rab was later present during the vote to negotiate with the Separatists, but the vote was stopped due to power failure from a bombing of the Coruscant power generator. Because of this attack, the Senate passed the bill to deregulate the banks so the Republic could increase clone production and rejected the Separatist peace initiative.

Later Rab continued to serve when a new bill was proposed by Senator Halle Burtoni for an additional five million clone troopers (funded by the Banking Clan). Rab was attacked by two bounty hunters hired by Count Dooku to scare the Senators out of voting against the bill. In the end Senator Padmé Amidala's speech swayed the votes and the bill was turned down.

  • He was one of many characters ultimately cut from The Phantom Menace.
