The religion practiced by the Gungan Empire spoke of a number of dieties. The teachings said that the gods dictated that if a Gungan saved another being's life, that being would owe the Gungan a life debt; similarly, if that being saved a Gungan's life, the Gungan would owe them a life debt.
In 22 BBY, during the Invasion of Utapau, exiled Gungan Prince Jar Binks saved the life of Jedi Master Jard Dooku and claimed that Dooku owed him a life debt. Dooku, in turn, saved Binks' life, canceling out their life debts.
