this Kel Dor xenobiologist was noted for his work with the rare leviathans of the planet Dorumaa, during the last decades of the Old Republic. He hosted the documentary A Galaxy Befuddled, which brought the unusual life of the leviathan's to the public's attention. (LFCW)

A.J.
this woman trained under the Jedi Master Kirlocca, at the Almas Academy, many years before the Battle of Yavin. She was noted for her desire to fight with two lightsabers, instead of one, a trait which worried the Masters of the Academy. However, A.J.'s trials produced sufficient evidence of the purity of her heart to alleviate any fears of her fighting style eminating from the Dark Side of the Force. (WOTC)

A/KT
this was the abbreviated name used to describe the Ayelixe/Krongbing Textiles corporation, which produced a variety of full-body clothing that provided the wearer with protection in a number of environments. The most popular of A/KT's outfits was the Tuff1 combat jumpsuit. (DTO, ROE)

A-1
this was the usual designation of the personal shuttles that were assigned to the Admirals of the Old Republic, missioned to taxi them to and from their flagships, during the height of the Clone Wars. (MJH)

A-1 Deluxe
an old model "floater" produced by Mobquet Swoops and Speeders, this landspeeder was produced just prior to the onset of the Clone Wars. It was not the fastest, sleekest, or most desirable speeder on the market, and was initially panned by critics. It was, however, extremely reliable and inexpensive. The body was 7.1 meters in length, but was thin and cylindrical, allowing it to accommodate just a pilot and a single passenger. The configuration of the speeder meant that the pilot and passenger had to sit one behind the other. An option on the A-1 was Corellian leather seating. One of the primary drawbacks to the A-1 Deluxe was the lack of cooling capacity for its drive systems. The A-1 Deluxe had a two-meter flight ceiling, and could attain speeds of 160 kilometers per hour. (TM, GG7, CCG2, HNN4)

A1 Tow

A-17
this was the designation of the clone trooper who, along with Anakin Skywalker, survived a Separatist attack on the moon of Ohma-D'un, during the height of the Clone Wars. Anakin chose to call the trooper Alpha, since he seemed to be much more than a simple clone. (RNFW, RBJ, RHF)

A-1707
this was the callsign of one of the multitude of clone troopers who fought for the Grand Army of the Republic during the Clone Wars, serving under the command of Jedi Master Shaak Ti. A-1707's gunship was forced to crash-land on a remote jungle world about a year after the Battle of Geonosis, and A-1707 was the only member of his squad to survive the next two decades. His presence on the jungle world was discovered by Commander Narra and Luke Skywalker, during the search for a new Alliance base in the wake of the Battle of Yavin. The Alliance forces scouting the planet had been tracked by Imperial forces, and ambushed once they were on the ground. A-1707 had also been tracking the Alliance team, and was unsure how to proceeed when he saw Imperial stormtroopers chasing them through the jungle. Narra, in order to gain A-1707's confidence, explained the state of the galaxy since the Clone Wars, and indicated that Luke was a Jedi Knight as well as a "General" in the military. A-1707's ingrained training kicked in, and he agreed to support Narra's forces. A-1707 - who preferred to simply be called Able - assisted the Alliance forces in defeating the Imperials, and was helped off the planet by Skywalker during the Alliance's retreat. Able agreed to join the Alliance's Intelligence agency. (SWEGS)

A2
this was the designation of a Viper probe droid guarding Zsinj's facilities on Xartun. (WS)

A2
this was a series of accounting droids produced by Genetech. These hemispherical droids moved about on a small repulsor engine, and measured about a meter in diameter. The A2 replaced the earlier success of the A1 accounting droid, embracing the latest technologies. The A2 series could handle a variety of market valuations with extreme accuracy, making them valuable to huge financial operations like the Corporate Sector Authority. A small defect was discovered in the original SkillWare caused the A2 to have small inconsistencies when dealing with small businesses, but Genetech quickly fixed the problem. (SWJ15, FTD)

It was armed with two laser cannons, and was protected by a moderate set of shields. It had excellent maneuverability and sublight speed for a ship of its size and class. (WBC)

A280
one of the best armor-piercing blasters produced during the Galactic Civil War, the Blas-Tech A280 rifle was reputed to be able to cut a fully-armored stormtrooper in half. Several of these rifles were stolen by Janse and brought to the Alliance shortly before the Battle of Endor. This weapon, along with predecessor, the DLT-20A, were marketed as Longblasters. The A280 was different from the DLT-20A in that its galven circuits were clustered near the focusing crystal, giving the weapon a slight bulge at the midseciton. This also provided the A280 with more power over a longer range. (RASB, TLC, CCG10, AEG)

A280-K
this was a follow-on to the BlasTech A280 heavy blaster rifle, used by New Republic forces in the decade following the Battle of Endor. (DARK)

After Anstaal died, A2-B4 was sold to Sybegh Abya, and was programmed to help him manage his breedtash ranch. A2-B4 performed well enough, but always compared his current stature to the "good old days" working for Anstaal. (SWJ6)

A2-grade Engine
see A2 (MJH)

A2-ZP
known as Zip, this A2-series accounting droid was owned by Jhorag Corconnan. Zip acted as Jhorag's business associate, during Jhorag's work as a Tasar Crystal purchasing agent.

A5 was destroyed when it got caught in the crossfire of a battle between Bon Sequors and the bounty hunters who were tracking him down for the theft of rare antiquities from the residence of Randar Dowellin. (SWJ11)

A-5 Envirosuit
produced by Malik Technologies, this environmental protection suit was quite expensive but well worth the cost. It gave the wearer complete protection from heat, radiation, and contamination. The A-5 had three basic parts: the inner bodysuit, a domed helmet, and a heavy backpack which contained the suit's control mechanisms. (GSE)

A-5DS
this modified 5DS-series protocol droid was assigned to Rith Tar'ak when she left active duty to serve as an Alliance recruiter on Ebra.

Overseen by Gorsick Dommaro, it provided Imperial personnel with access to most forms of weapons, illegal holovids, and personal electronics. These items were obtained through a complex series of contacts and couriers spread througout the nearby sprawls. No specific location was ever identified. (DSTC)

A-77
this was one of the many Separatist assassin droids that accompanied Asajj Ventress to Phindar, in an attempt to capture Jedi Master Yoda before he could reach Vjun some thirty months after the Battle of Geonosis. Unfortunately, A-77 was one of the first assassin droids to be destroyed by the Jedi, and only his head was recovered by Ventress. (YDR)

A-9 Vigilance Interceptor
a fast, highly maneuverable starfighter built by Kuat Drive Yards, the A-9 was pulled out of the design archives in order to help fill the gap left by the loss of so many TIE Fighters during the Galactic Civil War. However, when the Alliance defeated the Empire at the Battle of Endor, many of KDY's factory worlds were the sites of rebellion and revolt. One such world was the prime manufacturing site of the A-9. When all was said and done, the A-9 found its way to the New Republic's arsenal instead of the Imperial fleet. The craft is 7.4 meters in length, and is armed with a pair of heavy turbolaser cannons. Like the TIE Fighter, the A-9 has no hyperdrive, although it is capable of speeds approaching 1,300 kph. (DE1, DESB)

A-98
see CT-96/298 (TCD)

A-98 Tac Code 12
this was a special code given to ARC trooper A-98, also known as Nate or Jangotat, which he could give to non-military personnel who performed extraordinary service for him during official business. In this way, supportive non-combatants could be given special consideration for combat pay by the Old Republic. (TCD)

A99 Aquata Breather
this small, thin device is often found in survival kits and utility belts. The A99 breather, when inserted into the user's mouth, extracts oxygen from the surrounding water, allowing the user to swim underwater and "breath" through their mouth. The A99 Aquata breather resembles a small, curved mouthpiece. (SW1)

A9G Archive Droid
developed by Industrial Automaton, this humanoid droid was designed to archive and collate large amounts of data. The primary operation of the A9G-series was as a librarian or library administrator. Unfortunately, the software which controlled these droids was flawed, and many universities and major libraries overwhelmed them. The A9G series was scrapped, and the Alliance acquired several of them on the auction blocks. With a bit of reprogramming, the A9G units were modified to sift through large amounts of military information and retrieve specific documents for military leaders. (TBSB)

A9-series Droid
this was a series of driller droids developed for use in mining operations. (JH)

A-9x
this Kuat Drive Yards thrust engine design was created for use in the A-9 Vigilance Interceptor. They have self-contained power generators. (EGV)

the verbobrain model that was installed in the venerable 3PO series of protocol droids, the AA-1 verbobrain was built by SyntheTech during the last decades of the Old Republic. It was designed to hold the etiquette practices of millions of species, with the ability to cross-reference and analyze alien amenities. These units often contained some five exabytes of computer storage, and operated at a frequency of seven petahertz. (CPL, SWSB, MJH)

AA-103-AJ-45

A-A5
this was the designation of Trast's speeder truck. Measuring over twenty-one meters in length, the A-A5 was designed to transport heavy cargoes across rough terrain on Outer Rim worlds. The A-A5 required a three-person crew, and could accommodate up to 25,000 kilograms of cargo. The A-A5 was protected from harsh environments by thick armor plating, which made the A-A5 easily reconfigurable for use as an unarmed troop transport. With some modification, the A-A5 could move 25 troops with ease. (RASB, TLC, AEG)

AA-589
designation of the X-wing Luke was flying during Thrawn's reign of terror. (HTTE)

AA-9
this was one of the largest freighter designs of the years leading up to the Clone Wars. Known as the Coruscant Freighter, the triple-engined AA-9 could accommodate more than 30,000 passengers when configured for passenger transport. The engines of the AA-9, a trio of Corellian Engineering Corporation Dyne 2577 radial sublight engines, provided more than enough thrust to escape a planet's atmosphere and reach a hyperspace jump point. Note that, according to Star Wars Insider #61, these ships were known as Botajef Freighter-Liners. (TCG1, SWDB, SWI60)

AAA Tow
an Alliance heavy lifter group supplying Admiral Harkov during his attempt to defect to the Alliance. (TIE)

AAA-2

Aabe, Peita
this bald man, a former Imperial officer, served as the Chief Navigator of the Chiss Expansionary Defense Force during the height of the Yuuzhan Vong invasion of the galaxy. Several years earlier, he suddenly appeared at the border of Chiss space, asking for asylum. Distinguished by thin mouth, deep-set eyes, and prodigious nose, Aabe was a short-tempered man who had little patience. He was also determined to keep Csilla out of the New Republic, and found a number of supporters among the Chiss. In order to ensure that Csilla remained outside the Republic, Aabe arranged to have Soontir Fel's family captured and eliminated, a plan which would silence the loudest support for Csilla's joining the Republic. However, when his plans were revealed to those Chiss who served him, Aabe found himself acting alone. His self-centered goals didn't sit well with the Chiss, and he was forced to submit to Jacen Solo and Commander Irolia. He was tried and imprisoned for his treachery. (FH2)

Aach
this was a codename used by one of Bail Organa's agents during the last days of the Imperial Senate. He was used only when top-level business of the Alliance needed to be conducted. Thus, his presence always meant something important to the recipient of his message. Aach was dispatched to Anchoron to tell Garm Bel Iblis of the discovery of the plans to the first Death Star. Aach's arrival delayed the beginning of Bel Iblis' speech to the assembled group at the Treitamma Political Center, and probably saved the Senator's life. The Center exploded in a ball of flame, part of a plot to assassinate Bel Iblis's wife and force him to join the Alliance. (TFNR)

AAD-4
this hulking, humanoid assault droid was developed and manufactured by Arakyd Industries, during the last decades of the Old Republic. Arakyd used a great many of these droids in its own corporate security force. Most notably, sixty AAD-4 droids were dispatched to the planet Vulpter, where they stormed the corporate offices of Viper Sensor Intelligence Systems and halted the production of the XPLR-R exploration droid. (HNN5)

Aaeton
this planet was located just a half-day's trip through hyperspace from Ragoon-6. The planetary government of Aaeton had, at one time, obtained special permission to allow young students to travel to Ragoon-6 for survival camping trips. This was in return for helping the Ragoon elders administer the hand-over of their planet to the Galactic Senate. (JQ2)

Aagh Odok
this was a noted Zabrak explorer. (WOTC)

Aa'kua
this Old Corellian term means 'respect' or, more literally, 'respecting space.' When used by a Socorran, it translates to 'individual space,' and indicates the right of every native of Socorro to go about his or her own business without others prying in. A violation of aa'kua is a crime against the individual's own person, and was considered worse than murder. (SWJ7, BSS)

Aakuan

this deadly, rectangular weapon was produced by Briletto during the height of the Clone Wars, for use in arming the BL-series Battle Legionnaire droids of the Separatist armies. (SWI80)

Aar
this is the homeworld of the Aar'aa race. (TPS)

Aar'aa
this race of chameleon-like reptiloids is native to the planet Aar, and is known for its ability to match its skin color to its surroundings. Known as skin-changers, the Aar'aa are tall, well-muscled humanoids with pebbly-scaled skin, clawed hands and feet, and a thin ridge of skin running down their backs. Their large faces are dominated by thick eye-ridges which hang down over small, glowing eyes. (TPS)

Aarb
this surname was common among the Sullustan race, and meant "brewer" in the Sullustan language. (GCG)

Aargau
a planet of some importance to the Empire, Aargau was known throughout the galaxy for its banks. It was known to many beings as the Jewel of the Zug System. By the time of the Clone Wars, Aargau was under the control of the InterGalactic Banking Clan. Much of the planet's surface was dominated by a huge pyramid, which was divided into seven distinct and vast levels that had been built one atop the other for thousands of years. All visitors reported to the uppermost level, which was the smallest and easiest to secure. Access to the lower levels was granted on an as-needed basis to those citizens and visitors with the correct credentials. The seventh level, known as the Undercity, was a lawless area where any number of illegal and criminal activites could be found. In order to ensure that individuals remained on the correct levels, specialized lasers tinted the lighting of each level to a unique color. Sometime before the Battle of Yavin, Aargau was the site of a week-long conference between Baron Tagge and the Corporate Sector companies. The result of the meeting was the formation of the Corporate Sector Authority. Aargau remained neutral during the Galactic Civil War, although Princess Leia Organa and Darth Vader played an intricate game of politics there. After the Battle of Endor, Aargau fortified itself behind planetary shields and perimeter warships. Aargau was the third planet of the Zug System, and was orbited by a single moon. The average day on the planet lasted 24 standard hours, and its year encompassed 364 local days, giving Aargau a similar calendar to that of Coruscant. (CSA, DESB, MC48, BF3, PH)

Aargau Charter
this was the charter that established the governing principles of the people of Aargau. Among the most prominent rights given to the people by the Charter was the requirement that each individual be armed to protect themselves. (SWI65)

Aargau Executive Board
this was the name given to the primary governmental body which controlled the planet Aargau, during the last decades of the Old Republic. (SWI65)

Aargau Medical Observer Corps
this neutral organization was active during the height of the Clone Wars. Both the Separatists and the Old Republic tolerated the AMOC, allowing them to visit war-torn worlds to investigate any atrocities which might have been committed. (SWI70)

Aargauese
this was the name of the derivative language spoken by the natives of the planet Aargau. Much of the language was based on the financial aspects of Aargau's economy. (PH)

Aargauun
this was the term used by the human population of Aargau to describe themselves. (PH)

Aargonar
this relatively unimporant world was covered with rocky deserts that were filled with wondrous stone spires and arches, the reminders of the water that once flowed freely on its surface. During the height of the Clone Wars, about a year after the Battle of Geonosis, Aargonar was supposedly under the control of the Old Republic when the Confederacy of Independent Systems tried to take possession of the planet. A vicious battle ensued, with the Republic's forces being led by Jedi Master A'Sharad Hett. Years later, the planet's third moon served as the site of an Alliance base, during the height of the Galactic Civil War. It was also known as the homeworld of several individual sarlacc creatures, located across the planet's surface. (WOTC, RESB, REL)

Aargonar 3
this was the third moon of the planet Aargonar, which was the site of a secret Alliance base during the years leading up to the Battle of Yavin. (RESB)

Aari
one of Gaeri's aides in the Bakuran Senate. (TB)

Aaris
this was the name given to the original race of beings which inhabited the jungles of Aaris III. The name was later used to describe the primitive descendants of the original race. The ancient Aaris were advanced for their time, but their civilization was ruled by the visionaries and oracles who read the stars and cosmic events. Foremost among the seers was an Aaris named Kastays, who foretold the downfall of Aaris civilization after seeing a comet streak across the skies. Kastays' vision proved to be correct, for shortly afterward a victorious military force returned from battle with the Plaque of Victory. The Plaque's unusual powers created a number of power struggles and unusual omens, and the Aaris destroyed themselves in a planetwide civil war. Modern Aaris were wart-covered, reptilian humanoids barely a meter in height. They were quite primitive in their ways, although they were very experienced in navigating the ruins of Aaris III. (DARK)

Aaris III
this remote planet was located in Kathol Sector, just off the Trition Trade Route from Kolatill. The third world in the Aaris System, it was a lush, tropical world covered with jungles and dotted with abrupt mountain ranges. A variety of ruins were scattered across its surface, representing the only remnants of the original civilization of Aaris which inhabited the planet. During the last years of the New Order, Aaris III was also the site of an outlaw camp, located on the far side of the planet from the Place of Kastays. (DARK)

Aarn
this was one of the small group of Shamed Ones who lived beneath the surface of Coruscant, after the planet had been transformed into a likeness of Yuuzhan'tar. Aarn was one of the few Shamed Ones who lived independently, away from groups like that led by Vuurok I'pan. Like the other Shamed ones, though, Aarn believed that the Jedi Knights were not abominations, but saviors of the Shamed Ones and symbols of the new ideology which should be embraced by the Yuuzhan Vong. For this reason, their band remained small, in case they were captured by the Yuuzhan Vong warriors. This ensured that their small cult of Jedi followers would never be fully discovered. Aarn himself was relatively young, but his slender features indicated that his ancestors had probably been Shamed Ones as well. Aarn was one of the primary sources of stories surrounding Vua Rapuung and his friendship with Anakin Solo, having heard of the original story from a friend on Garqi. (FH1)

Aarno Dering
this male Euceron was a noted time-keeping official for many sporting events, during the years following the Battle of Naboo. He was noted for the casual way in which he kept time for many racing and sporting events, often shaving tenths of seconds off an athlete's time in return for certain monetary favors. Dering served as the official timekeeper for many events held as part of the Galactic Games on Euceron, much to the amazement of many sporting officials. However, just as the Games were to begin, Dering was implicated in the fixing of several events, and he was pursued by Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker. The Jedi were on Euceron to keep the peace, but stumbled onto the criminal betting rings that were forming around the Games. Before they could question Dering, though, he escaped from his apartment and fled into the street. Unfortunately, he was struck by a passing speeder truck and killed instantly. When the Jedi reached his body, they discovered that he had been carrying a false identification card, planning to adopt the alias of Ak Duranc. They also discovered that Dering had been assigned to time the illegal podracing which was happening in the Great Dordon Caves. Fligh later revealed that Dering's activities had been part of a larger plot to discredit several Old Republic Senators, who were on Euceron to attend the Games. (JQ3)

Aaroun
this was the name of the warrior caste of the Viis Empire. Members of the Aaroun were specially bred for fighting, having an appealing physical form while being agile and brutal in combat. (HNN5)

Aarrba
this amiable Hutt ran a repair and salvage shop on the planet Cinnagar about 5,000 years before the Galactic Civil War. Aarrba was a friend to Hok and Timar Daragon, and continually kept their starship in working order. It was Aarrba who took in Jori and Gav Daragon, after they were orphaned during the First Unification Wars, and raised them to adulthood. Aarrba continued to support them, giving them loans when no one else would, until they were unable to pay for repairs to their ship following the discovery of the Goluud Corridor. He was forced to have them arrested, in order to make them face up to their debts. When they fled the authorities, Aarrba impounded their ship and called in all their debts. Aarrba's body was stricken with sickness, and much of his body was amputated to remove the infection. He was relegated to a repulsor-chair in order to move about. When Naga Sadow began his conquest of the Koros System, Gav Daragon returned to Cinnagar and was confronted by Aarrba. Aarrba threatened Gav with imprisonment for his crimes, but Gav's Massassi bodyguards moved into position. Before he could do anything about it, Aarrba was killed by the bodyguards. Much later, after the Great Hyperspace War, Empress Teta gave Jori Daragon all rights to Aarrba's repair station for her part in winning the war. (GAS, FOSE)

Aarrba's Repair and Salvage
this starship maintenance facility was run by Aarrba the Hutt, and was located near the ancient Cinnagar starport. (GAS)

Aarrom
this was one of the most common male names used by members of the Ithorian race. Although most Ithorian names were not used for a specific meaning, historians found that this name meant "waves" or "breakers". (GCG)

Aarwynn
this huge humbaba was known in Kashoonara legend as the steed of the deity Hurrungat. The legends say that Aarwynn was "six Kashoonara high" at the shoulder, which was considerably larger than modern humbaba. (COG)

AAT Battle Tank
this Baktoid Armor Workshop craft was created for use by the Trade Federation and its droid armies. Measuring 9.75 meters in length, the AAT required four battle droids to operate it: a commander, a pilot, and two gunners. The ship was well armed, with a huge laser cannon turret-mounted atop the main section, a pair of range-finding blaster cannons to support the main laser, two anti-personnel blasters mounted with the range-finding weapons, and six projectile launchers. They can reach ground speeds of up to 55 kph and, while not shielded, have incredibly thick armor plating to protect the tank from attack. (X1)

AAT-1
this was the model designation of the Baktoid Armor Workshop AAT Battle Tank. (SON)

Aavman Extravagance
this small starship manufacturer produced luxury yachts during the New Order. (CRO)

Aawaia
this name was common among Ithorian females. Although such names do not generally have meaning, Ithorians who studied their race's history learned that the name meant "sunrise" - or, more literally, "the last breath of the moon". (GCG)

Aayla
this was a common name given to Twi'lek females, and meant "mist" or "smoke" in the Twi'leki language. (GCG)

Aayla Secura
this young Rutian Twi'lek female trained as a Jedi Padawan under the tutelage of Quinlan Vos, before Vos was captured on Nar Shaddaa. She had been rescued from slavery on Ryloth years before by Vos and his Master, Tholme, when she showed a great aptitude in the Force. She was trained by Master Tholme for many years before began training with Quinlan. Shortly after their capture on Nar Shaddaa, Aayla Secura was stripped of her memories by a combination of drugs and chemicals. Unknown to her, it was actually her uncle, Pol Secura, who stripped her memory as well as that of Quinlan Vos. Her connections to the Jedi Knights were partially eliminated, but were stored within her lekku and never truly lost. Pol Secura kept her safely hidden on Ryloth, as a member of his own harem, until Quinlan discovered his deception. Aayla, however, could not remember her connection to Quinlan, having been fed an almost continuous supply of glitteryll. When she tried to use the Force to prevent Quinlan from killing Pol Secura, she accidentally pushed Pol off a ledge to his death. She fled Ryloth in order to avoid capital punishment, and roamed aimlessly for several months. However, with her mind wiped clean, Aayla found herself drawn to the presence of Volfe Karkko on the prison world of Kiffex, and managed to reach the planet aboard Havor's starship. She also hoped to locate her former master and kill him. Karkko, awakened from his long stasis and bolstered by the strength of the feral Anzati of Kiffex, took Aayla as his Queen and groomed her to become an extension of his Dark Side power. When the Anzati attacked the Jedi who had traveled to Kiffex to investigate Karrko's re-emergence, Aayla found herself in combat with Quinlan. She could not kill him, instead allowing the feral Anzati to capture him for later consumption of his "soup." When the Jedi launched their final assault on Karkko's fortress, the Anzat magician ordered Aayla to kill Quinlan once and for all. When he revealed the truth behind her memory loss, and offered her the hope that her memory might be still stored in her lekku, Aayla stopped fighting for a moment. Karkko tried to kill her for her defiance, and Quinlan attacked. In the battle, Quinlan dispatched Karkko, freeing Aayla from his Dark Side grasp. She was allowed to return to Coruscant to continue her training, but the Jedi Council would not let her train with Quinlan. The choice was never given to her, though, as Quinlan chose to set off on his own, letting the Force guide him across the galaxy. They were reunited when they were forced to travel to Kintan to rescue Master Tholme from Kh'aris Fenn. For her efforts, Aayla was elevated to the rank of Jedi Knight upon returning to Coruscant with her Master and Quinlan. Years later, when the call went out to all Jedi to accompany Mace Windu to Geonosis, Aayla Secura was part of the 200-being team. She was also one of the few Jedi to survive the initial stages of the Battle of Geonosis, before Master Yoda arrived with the Army of the Republic. In the aftermath of that struggle, Aayla was dealt another blow when she was told that Quinlan had resigned from the Jedi Order and had joined the Separatists. Although she desparately wanted to bring him back to the Jedi, Master Tholme and the Jedi Council ordered her to concentrate on her duties to the Republic. It was during this period that she found a friend in Jedi Master Kit Fisto, one of the few Jedi who could read the movements of her lekku. While on Devaron to investigate Senator Vien'sai'malloc's part in the etsablishment of a Separatist base on the planet, Aayla was confronted by Aurra Sing. Drawing on lessons she learned from Quinlan, Aayla defeated the bounty hunter by slicing off the antenna which sprouted from Aurra Sing's head. Without this connection, the bounty hunter was easily captured and sent to the prison facility on Oovo IV. Aayla returned to Coruscant with the rest of the Jedi forces on Devaron, and she finally reconciled her inner struggle over whether she was a Twi'lek or a Jedi Knight. She also returned Master J'Mikel's lightsaber to Xiann. While on Coruscant, Aayla Secura was elevated to the rank of Jedi Master. She later participated in the abortive attack on the droid foundries on Hypori, and was one of the few Jedi to survive the attack. Six months before the First Battle of Coruscant, Aayla accompanied Tholme to Anzat to determine what Sora Bulq as doing on the planet, before being diverted to Trigalis to locate Obi-Wan Kenobi during his search for Xist. In the wake of the First Battle of Coruscant, Aayla was dispatched to Felucia with her clone troopers, led by Commander Bly. However, when Darth Sidious revealed his true nature and killed Mace Windu, he sent out communications to the various clone commanders to execute Order 66. Upon hearing the order, Bly ordered his troops to open fire on Aayla Secura and Barriss Offee, utterly destroying the defenseless Jedi Masters. Aayla Secura was played by Amy Allen in Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones and in Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Clones. (OWS, SWT, DRKN, SWDB, ROP, J3, SWDB, RT, O, IS3)

AB-4
this protocol droid was programmed by the Alliance to serve as a bureaucrat. During the early years of the Galactic Civil War, AB-4 served as Advanced Base Baskarn.

Aba
a Wookiee doll given to Jacen Solo by Chewbacca. (CS)

Aban
an Imperial Navy officer, Aban was a Commander when he was placed in charge of the construction of the Imperial garrison on Sedri. He formed an alliance with the renegade priest Karak, hoping to obtain the power of the Golden Sun for the Empire. The plan backfired when Karak was captured by Pek and Fala, but Aban continued to make progress until the Alliance ousted the Imperials from Sdri. Later, after surviving the Battle of Endor and being promoted to Captain, he was placed in charge of Grand Admiral Thrawn's Taanab Operation. He served as the commander of the Bellicose in Thrawn's fleet during this time, some five years after Endor. (DFR, BGS)

Abano
this Aruzan dola tree farmer was Manaroo's father. He begged for her life to General Kritkeen, but the Imperial was unresponsive. He sent Abano away with false promises and a warning shot from a stormtrooper's blaster. Dengar later returned with Manaroo and rescued Abano and his family, and the Alliance hid them - and the other Aruzans - on an unknown safeworld. (TBH)

Abanol
this toxic world was the second planet of the Beshqek System, located in the Deep Core of the galaxy. It was orbited by a single moon. (PH)

this gas giant is the sixth planet in the Atrig System. It has 18 natural satellites. PG2 also calls this world Abatrang. (PG2)

Abav Ghart
this Gotal was the leader of the Void Demons gang during the height of the Galactic Civil War. Ghart had been a pirate for more than fifty years at the time of the Battle of Yavin, and started the Void Demons more than thirty years before the war. He always dressed in expensive clothing, and was distinguished by the Repulse-Hand cybernetic prosthesis. He was considered a fiend of the worst kind, willing to do anything or betray anyone for a profit. He is also referred to as Aban Ghart in Planets of the Galaxy, Volume One. (PG1)

this was a common name among Quarren females. It meant "sensitive". (GCG)

Ab'Bshingh
this planet was the homeworld of the Farang and Waroot races. (SWJ8)

ABC Scrambler
this bounty hunter's weapon was an Aural-Biological-Chemical scrambler. It was based on the design of an anti-ordnance electromagnetic probe, and emitted a full spectrum of ultrasonic waves, chemical agents, and biological irritants when fired. The spread of the scrambler's blast had a wide pattern, and disoriented its target with massive sensory overloads. This allowed the hunter to capture the target without having to fight them. (GG10)

Abdi-Badawzi
this notorious Twi'lek gangster operated from an underground fortress located beneath the Rym Mountains, on the planet Socorro. He was also one of the trio of owners of Ethra Brewery. Born to parents who were part of a merchant family on Ryloth, Abdi was unusual because of his ebony-black skin. He lost his family when a rival clan assassinated them. Abdi had learned of the plot shortly beforehand, and tried to warn his father. His father ignored him, and even accused Abdi of being the would-be assassin. Abdi was sold into slavery shortly before the murder of his family. The slave ship he was transported on crashed in the deserts of Socorro, and Abdi was rescued by an Ibhaan'I shaman. Upon learning of the deaths of his family, Abdi vowed to exact revenge on their killers. He made friends with the most prominent members of Socorro's underground, and eventually moved his family fortune away from Ryloth. This got him exiled form Ryloth, but he was beyond caring for that world anymore: Socorro was now his home. His ties to the Society of the Black Bha'lir gained him a measure of respect, and soon he had established a great deal of influence in the smuggling business of the planet. He even ignored the Hutts, knowing that the Black Bha'lir wouldn't tolerate Hutt interference on Socorro. Eventually, Abdi-Badawzi's criminal empire expanded, and his capable leadership ensured its continued existence. (SWJ2, BSS)

Abek's Station
this small shadowport, located just off the intersection of the Sisar Run and the Ac'fren Spur, was owned and operated by Nim Abek during the Galactic Civil War. Abek used the station as a staging area for his personal group of pirates, outside his work for Sprax. When it was learned that Limna Yith was being held on the station, many interested parties converged on it, including a group dispatched by Sprax himself to rescue Yith. In the struggle for possession of the Kerestian, Abek's Station was severely damaged when the Imperial warship Ion Storm bombarded it with laserfire. The station was abandoned. (SSR)

Abel
this small, rodent-like humanoid was a smuggler on Dantooine, during the years following the Battle of Yavin. (3D3)

Aber
this red dwarf star cast very little visible light on the planet Alpheridies. It was the primary body in the Abron System, containing the planet Alpheridies. It was located just within The Veil, on the edge of the Mid Rim. (TOJC)

Abersaith Aviary
this exotic bird preserve was located on the planet Corulag, situated in the immense Abersaith Canyon. Mild repulsor fields separated the ecosystems of more than twenty million different species of birds, while the top of the aviary was formed froim huge canopies of transparisteel that allowed natural sunlight to filter into the aviary. (CCW)

Abersaith Canyon
this immense canyon was located on the planet Corulag. At several spots, the Canyon was several kilometers wide, and it was more than twenty-four kilometers in overall length. It was perhaps best-known as the site of the Abersaith Aviary. (CCW)

Abh
this word was part of the dialect spoken on the planet Belgaroth. The abbreviated form of the phrase "anywhere but here", abh served to sum up the mindset of most Belgarians, who simply wanted to leave the planet as quickly as possible. (CCW)

Abhean
this planet's orbital shipyards served as the construction facility for the ancient Jedi training vessel, Chu'unthor, as these shipyards were the only facility capable of handling the huge ship. (PJSB)

Abin-Ral-Xufush
this Tiss'shar trader found the life of a trader to be too boring and non-productive, and soon went into business as a pirate. Using his knowledge of the various hyperspace trade routes across the galaxy, he formed his own pirate gang and terrorized the Perlemian Trade Route during the height of the New Order. He seemed to discover his potential in this new leadership role, quickly establishing the Dark Wing fleet and gaining a reputation as a ruthless and efficient leader. The Dark Wing eventually became the Shadow Wing, although Abin-Ral-Xufush continued to lead with an iron fist. He was known for his strong anti-human prejudices, although this generally was reserved for beings outside his own orgainzation. Within the Shadow Wing, Abin-Ral-Xufush was known as a fair and equal leader, regardless of the race or species of his followers. He did not tolerate insubordination, and any betrayals within the ranks of the Shadow Wing were dealt with in brutal and lethal ways. Note that Pirates and Privateers names the pirate gang as the Dark Wing, while the Wizards of the Coast website names them the Shadow Wing. (PP, WOTC)

Abinyshi
this race of slender reptilians was native to the planet Inysh. Their limbs are long and supple, and their tails end in a fork. The Abinyshi developed space travel at about the same time as humans, although their technology never matched the levels of the Corellians or Duros. They used starships to colonize several nearby worlds, but their overall population never blossomed enough for them to expand further. Their numbers were greatly diminished after the Empire discovered the reserves of kalonterium in the planet's crust. The Empire stripped the planet of its minerals without regard for the native lifeforms, and the toxic pollution it produced nearly wiped out the Abinyshi. The Abinyshi were believed to be extinct, but several individuals came forth as the Alliance gained support. (AE, SWJ14)

Abo Dreth
this large, dark brown world was the primary planet in the Abo Dreth System, located in the Corporate Sector of the galaxy. The surface of Abo Dreth was broken by hundreds of silver lakes and rivers that wandered across the planet's face in no particular pattern. The nitrogen-rich atmosphere supported a small population, many of which allied themselves with the Alliance during the Galactic Civil War. (OWS)

Abo Dreth System
this star system, located within the Corporate Sector of the galaxy, was a hotbed of rebel activity during the height of the Galactic Civil Wars. Fiolla was dispatched to the Abo Dreth System with Naven Crel to investigate any possible links to the Abo Dreth rebels and the band that destroyed the first Death Star. (OWS)

this was the proper name of the planet known as Masterhome. The name Masterhome was given by the planet's native race, the Anointed People. It was discovered by the Old Republic some ninety years before the Battle of Yavin. Abonshee was a temperate, Earth-like world with an abundance of hardy plantlife and reptilian fauna. (SWCP, MB, AE)

Aboukir
this New Republic warship was destroyed at the Battle of N'zoth. (TT)

ABP-980
produced by Ferisoliq Imports, this Aqualish bio-light panel produced an ever-changing display of light ad pattern to soothe its viewers. The display was produced by a reactive plankton that lived in the sealed environment of the panel. The plankton responded to changes in light, temperature, and atmospheric gases. Many nobles and dignitaries kept these devices in their homes and offices, as the plankton could die in the presence of certain toxic gases. If the panel suddenly went dim, it was a sure indication of a problem with the air. (GFT)

Abran
this star was the central body in the Abran System. (TBSB)

Abran Belt
this asteroid belt contained the mining colony B'knos. (TBSB)

Abrax Cognac
a pale blue, alcoholic distilled spirit. It was favored by New Republic General Salm. (XWN)

Abraxas
this planet was the primary world in the Abraxas System. Abraxas was once known for its rich mineral and ore deposits. However, when the mines ran dry, the mining corporations simply packed up and left the system. Their transport ships and orbital refineries were left behind to crumble, and the debris eventually filled the empty spaces in the system. (NEGC)

Abraxas System
this star system was once known for its rich mineral and ore deposits found on the primary planet of Abraxas. However, when the mines ran dry, the mining corporations simply packed up and left the system. Their transport ships and orbital refineries were left behind to crumble, and the debris eventually filled the empty spaces in the system. This wide array of debris made travel through the system almost impossible. It also made the perfect hiding places for pirates. (T5)

Abraxin
this planet, located in the Tion Cluster, was the homeworld of the marsh haunt species. (PJSB)

Abregado
see Abregado-rae (HTTE)

Abregado-Dai

Abregado-Fus
this gas giant was the fourth planet of the Abregado System. It was orbited by nine moons. (CCW)

Abregado-rae
the primary planet in the Abregado system, Abregado-rae is located in the Borderlands region. The homeworld of the Gado race, Abregado-rae was a temperate world whose day lasts 23 standard hours, and whose orbit lasts 349 local days. It was located at the head of the Rimma Trade Route, and had originally been scouted by the Old Republic some 10,000 years before the Battle of Yavin. It remained uncolonized for seven millennia, until the creation of the Rimma Trade Route. Despite the temperate nature of Abregado-Rae's environment, it supported an extremely small and sparse variety of lifeforms. There were less than ten species of large animals which were native to the planet. Since the fall of the Empire, Abregado-rae has become a civilized world, although it still maintains a large base of smugglers. The planetary government established by the Tundei regime, in an effort to reduce crime and keep the peace, severely restricted individual freedoms for its citizens. However, their law-at-all-costs demands eventually backfired, driving away the criminals but also driving away much of the income they brought to the planet. Note that the galaxy map inside Star Wars Insider, issue 65, indicates that Abregado-rae is located in the Core Worlds. (HTTE, DFR, HTSB, EGP, SWI65, CCW)

Absit
this planet, subjugated by the Empire during the Galactic Civil War, is the homeworld of the Yatir race of humanoids. (ISB)

Absolute, The
this was the name of the secret police force maintained by the Civilized faction of the planet Apsolon, during the decades leading up to the Battle of Naboo. The motto of the Absolutes was simple: "Absolute justice calls for absolute loyalty." The Absolutes were charged with putting an end to the industrial sabotage of the Workers, but they were unable to stop it. They were known for their use of painful torture and sensory deprivation in order to make the Workers bend to their will. Many Workers had their hands broken, so that they could never work in the high-paying technical jobs. In the wake of Ewane's election, the Absolutes were supposed to have been disbanded. Their headquarters building was gutted and turned into the Museum of the Absolutes, as a grim reminder of their activities. However, many believed that the Absolutes were ultimately behind the murder of Ewane, shortly after he left office. The Jedi Master Tahl was able to infiltrate the ranks of the new Absolute, and was present when Qui-Gon Jinn was captured. Their ranks were small and uncontrollable, and there was constant in-fighting among the members. (TTB)

Absolutists
this was the name used to describe those Selonians who, during the time of Thrackan Sal-Solo's rise to power and the Corellian Crisis, were determined that the planetary repulsors should be used as a weapon that would allow the Selonians to forcefully gain their independence from the New Republic. However, their support of the Sacorrian Triad eventually forced the New Republic to intervene, and the Absolutists were dissolved. (AS, CCW)

Abyss
one of the two binary stars that dominate the Byss-Abyss system. (GG4)

Abyss, The
this was the deepest of the mines which had been excavated on the planet Vasha, during the last years of the New Order. It was believed that the Vashan god of decay, the Rot-Maggot, had his lair at the bottom of the Abyss, near the planet's core. (GMR9)

Abyss, The
this deep-reaching, vertical slice of Imperial City was located on Coruscant. The headquarters of the New Republic Intelligence agency, known as the Mirage, were located well below the surface of the planet, within the Abyss itself. (HT)

Abyss, The
this was one of the many podraces which meandered through the cloud-cities of the planet Ord Ibanna during the last decades of the Old Republic. (RAC)

Abyssin
an alien race native to the planet Byss (not the same Byss that the reborn Emperor Palpatine used as his power base), these tall humanoids have long, well-muscled limbs and a single, slitted eye. The eye of the Abyssin has twin lenses and dual focal planes, which allows the Abyssin some measure of depth perception. They have incredible regenerative ability, and actually consume their own body mass and rebuild cells. An average Abyssin body cell is replaced every 80 hours. Many of the normal organs found in pairs in other races are singular in the Abyssin, but can be regenerated if injured. They are a nomadic race, with no substantial exports. Thus, the planet has been relatively ignored by traders. The primary visitors to the planet are slavers who come to export the Abyssin themselves. For this reason, the Abyssin were distrustful of the Arcona explorers who tried to establish a relationship with them. However, when the Arcona began to share desert survival techniques, the Abyssin began developing a certain level of trust with respect to off-worlders. When two tribes of Abyssin meet, they will either enter into a Trade (if water and food are plentiful, gaunts, weapons, or young are exchanged) or a Blooding (a fight to the death for water rights). The Abyssin have greenish-tan skin and long arms that reach to the ground when they walk. Their hands end in sharp claws. Although Abyssin can live to be over 300 years in age, their ability to regenerate gradually decreases. Those Abyssin who can no longer regenerate themselves usually walk into the desert and die. Those that refuse to die are ritually stoned by younger Abyssin. (GG4, SA, SWDB)

Abyssin
this was the name of the written and spoken language of the Abyssin race. The written version was formed from simple hieroglyphs, while the spoken version was made up of primitive grunts and growls. (UANT)

Abyssin Grafting Patch
this unusual form of bandage was developed by Kirgalis Pharmaceutical Exports, and used specially-harvested regenerative cells from the Abyssin bio-chemistry. When applied to a wound, the patch promoted the rapid growth of new skin cells to heal the wound. The patch wasn't as affective as bacta, but was extremely useful in field situations. (GFT)

ABZ-196
this was the override code which would halt the self-destruct mechanism placed in the memory banks of the droid A-Cee. (SFE)

AC1
Cybot Galactica's surveillance droid, the AC1 series was a repulsorlift-powered sphere to which was mounted a swiveling holocam. The sphere was just under a meter in diameter. The AC1 was known as a "Spy-Eye,"and was designed as a mobile surveillance platform which transmitted live images as it moves about. (RASB, EGD)

Academy of Jedi Archaeology, The
a division of the ancient Jedi Knights which strove to recover the ancient Jedi teachings and lore, including the Sith knowledge. (DLS)

Academy, The
an elite training and educational institution, the original goal of the Academy (during the Old Republic and early parts of the Emperor's New Order) was to train personnel for various space-going tasks. Under Palpatine, though, the goal was twisted to become an Imperial training center. There is no single location, although the Academy's most renowned training center is on Raithal. The basic training program lasts 30 months. (SW, JS, COTF, ISB)

Acadi
this was the name of a street, found in the city of Tacto, on the planet Radnor. (JQ1)

Acamma, Veril
this woman was one of the many military leaders who fled the Tallaga garrison, on the planet Sucharme, when the Trade Federation shut the garrison down, sometime before the Battle of Naboo. The Federation hoped to force Sucharme's government to repay an outstanding debt by invading the planet and taking control of its economy. However, a group of soldiers led by Acamma fled into the wilderness to regroup. Under Acamma's direction, a successful resistance campaign was initiated, which eventually drove the Federation from Sucharme. (GCG)

this was the name of the g-force-absorbing bench used by starship passengers. (HSE)

Accipiptero
this was the largest reptavian native to the planet Dagobah. Because of its size, it spent much of its life patrolling the upper levels of the jungle canopy, where it could fly freely above the trees and capture prey. (WSW)

Acclamator II-class Assault Ship
this ship was the second in the Acclamator series that was designed for the Old Republic's use during the Clone Wars. Whereas the original Acclamator-class ship was listed as a military transport or troopship, the Acclamator II-class vessel was a warship designed for planetary bombardment. (TCG10)

Acclamator-class Troopship
developed and manufactured by Rothan Heavy Engineering, the 752-meter-long Acclamator-class trans-galactic military transport ship was designed in support of the Army of the Republic. Measuring 752 meters in length, the Acclamator could carry up to 16,000 clone troopers, 320 speeder bikes, 80 LAAT/c or LAAT/i gunships, 48 AT-TE walkers, and 36 SPHA-T vehicles. The ship was created for the Republic, rather than the Trade Federation or the Separatists, after several Kuati officials were murdered by the Federation at the Eriadu Conference. The Acclamator-class ship was the first ship produced, and was designed to carry huge numbers of troops and support materiel into battle anywhere in the galaxy. What made them unusual for a capital ship was that the Acclamator-class could move through planetary atmospheres as well as the vacuum of deep space. This meant that separate dropships were not required. Each of these massive ships was armed with 12 quad turbolaser turrets, 24 laser cannons, and four projectile launchers. It was crewed by 700 officers, and was equipped with a Class 0.6 hyperdrive in order to get troops into battle arenas with maximum swiftness. The Acclamator was distinguished as the first ship capable of carrying out a Base Delta Zero order, something never seen in the Old Republic until the onset of the Clone Wars. In most design respects, the Acclamator was the predecessor of the Victory- and Imperial-class Star Destroyers. (X2, SWDB, SWI62, NEGV)

Accolux Township
this Yedagon city was supposedly attacked and destroyed by the Lords of Dismay Flightknife, during the civil war which broke out on Adumar due to Tomer Darpen's treacherous schemes. In reality, the flatcam reports of the battle were faked, in an effort to keep the Empire from learning that the Adumari had sided with the New Republic. The reports were meant to hold off any Imperial reprisal because of the Adumari choice until a New Republic fleet could arrive to defend Adumar. (SOA)

Accron
this was a form of repulsor chair, produced by Go-Corp during the early decades of the New Republic. (WOTC)

Accu, Paddy
this man, a native of the planet Naboo, was known as a respected pilot and warrior. After he retired from active duty, Paddy Accu served the royalty of Naboo as a pilot and boat captain. He later took on the position of caretaker at the Varykino resort, in Naboo's Lake Country, working for the Naberrie family. When Senator Padme' Amidala returned to Naboo after as assassination attempt, just prior to the vote on the Military Creation Act, Paddy Accu took Senator Amidala and Anakin Skywalker to the Lake Country. (AOTCN, SWDB)

Accudrop
this was the brand name of a stun gas developed by Locris Syndicated Securities. (AEG)

Accuser
this Ghtroc Industries Class 720 freighter was owned and operated by Kal-tan-shi, and was obtained when the Tiss'shar acquired a bounty from the Lesser Plooriod Cluster during his tenure with House Paramexor. The ship proved to be quite durable, which was a blessing for Kal-tan-shi because he was not a terribly gifted mechanic. He worked hard to ensure that the ship wasn't damaged during a hunt, but he never stopped to worry about the ship. It was armed with a double-laser cannon and a turret-mounted laser cannon. (AIR)

Accuser
this Imperial-class Star Destroyer served the Empire as a patrol ship during the period leading up to the Battle of Endor, monitoring the shipping lanes for criminals and members of the Alliance. Under Imperial duty, the Accuser was in the Tatooine System when Boba Fett arrived with the frozen body of Han Solo. Darth Vader gave the Star Destroyer and the rest of its fleet the order to stand down and let Fett deliver Solo's body to Jabba the Hutt. Tycho Celchu was assigned to the Accuser during his first stint of Imperial duty. He was talking to his family on Alderaan when the planet was destroyed by the first Death Star. Unfortunately for the Imperial fleet, it was later one of the first Imperial-I class Star Destroyers the New Republic captured after the Battle of Endor. In a bold and reckless action, Han Solo and Lieutenant Page literally talked their way onto the bridge of the ship, and Solo himself - dressed in a stolen officer's uniform - relieved the ship's commander of duty and took control of the ship. It was later renamed Emancipator. Note that X-Wing: Isard's Revenge claims the Accuser is an Imperial-II class ship. (DE1, MTS, WG, IR, CCG11, TBSB)

Ace-6
this Cybot Galactica combat droid brain was used by Sienar Fleet Systems in the TIE/D Fighter. (EGV)

A-Cee
this modified protocol droid was used by the Alliance as an information gathering system. A-Cee was dispatched to Sulon with Candice Ondi, in the year leading up to the Battle of Yavin, to chronicle the rebel uprising on the moon. A-Cee had been given specific programming which activated a plitex nine bomb whenever it saw an Imperial officer. It nearly self-destructed the first time it encountered Kyle Katarn, while traveling with Jan Ors aboard the Star of Empire after the death of Candice Ondi. A-Cee was later captured by Dol Donar II, during Kyle and Jan's escape from the liner. Hoping to turn the droid into the Imperial authorities, the Donars activated it to see what sort of data it contained. Upon seeing Nathan Donar's Imperial uniform, A-Cee activated its bomb and exploded, destroying the Donar's starship and killing all aboard. (SFE)

Acertron
this heavy alloy was used by the Trade Federation to protect the chest of their super battle droids. The acertron plating was cryogenically tempered to add strength, but it could also flex slightly in stress to prevent breakage. (VD2)

this being was a lock-picker and all-around thief who worked in the CoCo District of Coruscant during the years leading up the Clone Wars. Acey was a good friend of Dexter Jettster, and often helped Dexter move vehicles that were illegally parked near his diner. (JQ9)

Ac'fren Spur
this side-path of the Sisar Run connects to the run at a shadowport which isn't on any known map. It connected the Si'Klaata Cluster with Sriluur by way of Ques. Much of the Spur was harassed by the Disac pirate gang, until Ket Maliss wiped them out. Sprax believed that a cluster of pirates survived, and hid on an unspecified planet along the Spur. (SSR)

Acha
this was the Ewok word for "okay". (BTRKS26)

Achillea
one of the primary worlds of House Cadriaan, this planet was located in Tapani Sector. It was located along the Shapani Bypass, giving it a great deal of trade. Achillea was a world of semi-tropical beauty, with shallow seas and three continents. (PGT, LOE)

Acib, Y'ull
this man took control of Black Sun's criminal organization, in the years after the death of Grand Admiral Thrawn. At the urging of Grappa the Hutt, he developed a group of clones of Xandel Carivus, in an effort to place a puppet in his place on the Imperial Interim Ruling Council. He also poisoned General Immodet to help cover his tracks. Their plans backfired when the clones were defeated on Ord Cantrell, and were traced back to Black Sun. When Macus Kayniph's cloning facilities were destroyed by the New Republic, Acib began to feel that Grappa's plans were falling apart. His fears were realized when Grappa was captured by the Zanibar and taken to Xo as a sacrifice. (CE2, HCE)

Acicular Defender
this was a subspecies of the herbivorous paralope, which was native to the planet Corellia. The acicular defender was noted for the fact that its primary duty was to defend a herd from predators. (GQRG)

Acid Beam Rifle
this unusual rifle was developed to shoot a thin stream of acid at a target. The entire weapon was formed from high-density metals and ores, so it could stand up to the acid it fired. The muzzle was designed to prevent overspray, thereby protecting the user. (GQRG)

Acid Droid
this was a specialized form of crawl-carrier, that carried a payload of building-collapsing acid within its body. When it infiltrated its objective, the acid droid literally sacrificed itself by dumping its payload, destroying itself as well as the surrounding structure with the powerful acid. (SWI77)

Acid Lizard
according to urban legends, the acid lizard lived beneath the sands of the plante Tatooine. The acid lizard resembled a large alligator, with a heavier body and longer legs. It excreted a form of acid from its skin, which it used to create a vast system of tunnels beneath the dunes. (MDCAR)

Acid Rat
this was a species of vile rodent. (MDCAR)

Acid Root
a dangerous plant native to Wayland. (TLC)

Acid Sword
this unusual sword was developed during the height of the New Order. The acid sword resembled a long knife or sword, with a series of deep notches along one side of the blade. These notches were continually filled with acid from a pump located in the hilt, thereby covering the blade with acid. When a fighter scored a hit on an opponent, this acid was deposited in the wound, causing intense pain and burning in addition to the physical trauma of being sliced open. (SWGAL)

Acid-beet
this root vegetable was grown on the planet Vjun, and was often cooked as a side-dish to other meals. (YDR)

Acilaris
the innermost world of the Cularin System, Acilaris was barely large enough to be considered a planetoid. Nevertheless, it had enough gravity to hold an atmosphere, albeit one which was laden with sulfur, carbon, and boron. The surface of Acilaris was very hot, and was believed to be rich in natural minerals and crystals. However, the temperature prohibited mining activities. (LFC)

Ackbar
this was one of the more common names given to males of the Mon Calamari race. To the Mon Calamari, this name meant "selfless servant". (GCG)

Ackbar
this Mon Calamarian served the Alliance as a Navy Admiral, and was later promoted to the position of Commander-in-Chief of the New Republic. He was serving as an officer in the Mon Calamarian Navy until he was captured when the Empire took over Calamari, and was presented to Grand Moff Tarkin as a personal slave. He followed Tarkin around everywhere, all the while collecting information about the Imperial war machine, in hopes that he could escape and provide the knowledge to the Alliance. He gained limited knowledge about the Death Star in this fashion, enough to make him fear for the safety and future of the galaxy. When Tarkin decided to move to a permanent post on the Death Star, Ackbar was to be brought along with him. However, Tarkin's shuttle was attacked by an elite force whose goal was to assassinate Tarkin. They failed only when an Imperial Star Destroyer arrived to drive off the attackers, but they managed to rescue Ackbar in the attack. From that point on, Ackbar served the Alliance faithfully, using his knowledge of Imperial doctrine wherever possible. He was in command at the Battle of Endor, guiding the space battle over the second Death Star and drawing fire from the ships that were to destroy the space station's central power core. Following the formation of the New Republic, Ackbar became one of the Republic's ruling members, until Councilor Fey'lya used incriminating evidence against him - planted, unknown to Fey'lya, by Grand Admiral Thrawn - in an effort to discredit Ackbar. When Fey'lya's plans were revealed, Ackbar was reinstated as a New Republic dignitary and the Commander of the Navy. He was away from Calamari when the reborn Emperor Palpatine attacked the planet, and survived the assault on his homeworld. Later, when he and Leia were on a diplomatic mission to Vortex, his shuttle was sabotaged, causing it to crash into, and destroy, the Cathedral of Winds. This was part of Furgan's plan to bring down the New Republic from the inside, and severely degraded Ackbar's self-confidence. He returned to Calamari to help rebuild what was still unrepaired from the Emperor's attack, and was on the planet when Admiral Daala chose to attack Calamari. He and Leia were able to rally the minimal Calamarian defense, stalemating Daala's attack until help from the New Republic arrived. Ackbar chose to remain on Calamari until Furgan attempted to finalize his plans by kidnapping baby Anakin Solo on Anoth. He then left the planet and arrived at Anoth in time to rescue baby Anakin. This demonstration of the Empire's desperate attempts to regain control of the galaxy helped to crystallize Ackbar's resolve, and brought him out of his self-imposed shell and back into the New Republic's government. He remained a vital asset to the Republic throughout the Black Fleet Crisis and the negotiation of peace with the Empire, but when Borsk Fey'lya was named the New Republic's Chief of State, Ackbar decided to retire from active duty and return to Calamari. Ackbar was kept informed of the progress of the battle against the Yuuzhan Vong, and used his time to investigate a way to defeat them. As his health flagged, Ackbar was assisted by Winter, who had traveled to Calamari while her husband, Tycho Celchu, rejoined the military. Admiral Traest Kre'fey and a small faction of commanders convinced Ackbar to come out of retirement, and lend their support to the war effort. Ackbar was reinstated to his rank of Admiral, and assisted Admirals Kre'fey and Sovv in developing new tactics to use against the alien invaders. His plans involved the use of dead-end hyperspace routes through the Deep Core, and eventually developed into the tactics used at the Battle of Ebaq. Unfortunately for the New Republic, as well as the fledgling Galactic Alliance, Admiral Ackbar died at his home on Calamari shortly after the abortive Yuuzhan Vong attack on the planet, since five years after their initial invasion. Ackbar was portrayed in Star Wars: Return of the Jedi by Tim Rose. (ROTJ, HTTE, DFR, DA, COTF, MTS, VOF, VP, Y, DW, SWI65, UF)

Ackbar Slash
this desperate starship maneuver was developed by the Alliance's Admiral Ackbar. The slash involved sending your warships directly through the line formed by your opponent's ships at top speed. If done correctly, and if the Force was with you, this maneuver resulted in two things. First, any of the opponent's ships who missed your ships actually shot up their own ships. Second, it scattered the opponent's ships, breaking their line. (WS)

Ackdool
this Mon Calamari was a Commander in the New Republic Navy some twenty years after the Battle of Endor. He was in command of the cruiser Mediator, during the time when it was dispatched to Rhommamool. His appointment to Commander was met with some discontent by the New Republic's elite, not because he was one of the few remaining Mon Cal in the Navy, but because they believed he was given command of the Mediator simply because he was Mon Calamari. Ackdool was forced to act when Nom Anor launched a series of warheads against the city of Osa-Prime, an attack he claimed was initiated by Rhommamoolian officials. (VP)

Ackdool
this was one of the more common names given to males of the Mon Calamari race. To the Mon Calamari, this name meant "mighty". (GCG)

Acklay
this large, crustacean predator was considered vicious by any definition of the term. Originally native to the verdan plains of Vendaxa, the acklay had six legs which ended in a sharp claw, and there were three clawed fingers at each knee joint. The neck of the acklay was protected by a tall, bony crown, and its jaws were filled with sharp teeth. Many acklays were exported to the planet Geonosis, for use in the gladiator arenas as fightign animals. Many of these vicious creatures escaped, wiping out entire hives of Geonosians before being hunted down. Those acklay that survived eked out an existence on the briny shores of the Ebon Sea. (OWS, SWI60, VD2, SWDB)

Acklay Chopper
this was the only name used to describe one of the most notorious Geonosian slavemasters of the last decades of the Old Republic. A former petranaki fighter, Acklay Chopper nearly died in the arena when an acklay severely injured him. Rather than giving up, he took his picador's spear and drove it through the roof of the acklay's mouth. As the creature crashed to the ground, Acklay Chopper gathered his strength and cleaved the acklay's head from its neck, thus earning his new name. He then presented the head to Hadiss the Vaulted, who named the warrior the fight manager of the arena. (GORW)

Ackli
this Mon Calamari male spent most of his time in the cantinas of Mos Taike, on the planet Tatooine, during the early years of the New Order, claiming that the alcohol he consumed was the next best thing to the waters of his homeworld. Ackli often claimed to have seen krayt dragons first-hand, which attracted the attention of a pair of Zabrak treasure hunters. Dusque Mistflier happened to overhear their conversation, and wanted to follow them during one of her early missions with Tendau Nandon. She hoped to obtain tissue samples of one of the large reptiles, and managed to convince her Ithorian partner to spent a day attempting to locate one. They set out to trail Ackli and the Zabraks, but the three treasure hunters apprehended them and left them to die. Before they could obtain any of the dragon pearls used by the krayts to aid in digestion, the trio was attacked by three krayt dragons and forced to flee for their lives. (SWI74)

Ackmena
this woman worked as the night-shift bartender at Chalmun's Spaceport Cantina in Mos Eisley, on the planet Tatooine, during the height of the New Order. Ackmena was portrayed by Bea Arthur in the Star Wars Holiday Special. (IWST, SWH)

this Chagrian owned and operated the largest vehicle sales facility in Bartyn's Landing, on the planet Lamaredd, during the years surrounding the Battle of Naboo. An energetic being who was known simply as Crazy 'Bala, Ackrahbala sold and leased a wide variety of land and sea vehicles, and was always willing to cut a deal in order to close out a sale. (GMR7)

Ackrahbala's Swoops & Speeders
this establishment was located in Bartyn's Landing, on the planet Lamaredd, during the years surrounding the Battle of Naboo. Owned and operated by Ackrahbala - who was known to his friends as Crazy 'Bala - the operation sold and leased a wide variety of land and sea vehicles. (GMR7)

Ackran
Jesmin Ackbar's alias, while serving as a member of the Night Caller's crew. (WS)

Ackyuna
popular Alliance rumors held that this Imperial Star Destroyer was badly damaged because a problem with the tractor beam generators. The original generators were too complex for a standard stormtrooper to operate, and the operations team made several errors which caused the two ships to collide. Subsequent tractor beam generators, such as those on the first Death Star, were greatly simplified. (T4)

A-class Bulk Freighter
this double-hulled transport ship was similar to the Gallofree Yards Medium transport in design. It used a pair of angled hull plates to surround the central cargo section, which could be modified to fit various configurations. The hull plates mounted on the sides of the A-class freighter, in contrast to the Gallofree ship, where they mount on the top and bottom. A pair of main drives was mounted vertically at the rear of the shell. Many pilots considered the A-class freighter to be a knockoff of the Action IV freighter. (HTTE, HTTEC)

A-class Fortress
this was a design of pre-fabricated defensive structure that was developed by Imperial engineers for deployment in the field, during the height of the Galactic Civil War. It took a fair amount of time to set up an A-class fortress and establish a defensive perimeter, which limited its deployment to areas in which hostilities were at a minimum. (SWELM)

Acle
this Alliance Special Forces soldier was a member of Team Razor. (HAS)

Acme Droid Service
local Mos Eisley legend held that this droid repair shop was located in a back alley of the spaceport city, during the height of the New Order. It was here that C-3PO and R2-D2 hid from Imperial stormtroopers, while Luke Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi hired Han Solo to take them all to Alderaan. The exact location of Acme Droid Service has never been found, and many historians believe the name was created by local merchants to help keep the stormtroopers away from their own places of business. (MDCAR)

Acoi, Rel
this man was the leader of the Oquan bounty hunter group, during the height of the Galactic Civil War. He and the Oquan worked for the Empire whenever they could, since the Imperials always paid well for captured Alliance spies. (GMR5, WOTC)

Acorvus
this planet, the third in the Lazerian System, was covered in barren desert. It was the site of the system's penal colony, and was off-limits to non-authorized personnel. Captured dissenters and criminals were incarcerated on Acorvus. The planet has a marginally breathable atmosphere. (TSK)

Acoustic Disruptor
a device used in the Kessel spice mines to scrape off the top layer of rock and expose the spice below. (JS)

Acquisitor
this Trade Federation freighter was one of the many ships which were refitted with weapons, during the years leading up to the Battle of Naboo, to provide a measure of security from pirates and other attacks. Under the command of Nap Lagard, it was called to rescue the freighter Revenue when the Nebula Front tried to steal its load of lommite. Unfortunately, the Acquisitor arrived too late to save the Revenue. (COD)

Acra
this was one of the many Bothan clans. Membership in the clan was denoted by the suffix 'cra added to an individual's family name. (GCG, WOTC)

Ac'siel
this was one of the largest cities found beneath the ice of the planet Csilla. (FH2)

Actinic Luminator
a high-powered light often used by smugglers. (COJ)

Action II Freighter
one of the first freighter models produced in the Action series by Corellian Engineering Corporation. Carib Devist used one to fly to Bothawui, during the build-up of warships following the Caamas Incident. Hidden inside the freighter was a squadron of TIE Interceptors. When Devist's freighter and the Millennium Falcon were caught in the tractor beams of the Tyrannic, Devist detonated the Action II, with a series of explosions that allowed his crew to blast away in the Interceptors. The explosion freed the Falcon from the tractor beam, allowing them all to return to open space and expose the Tyrannic. (VOF)

Action IV Freighter
a trapezoidal, medium bulk freighter built by the Corellian Engineering Corporation, the Action IV measures 100 meters in length and can carry 30,000 cubic meters of cargo with a maximum mass of 75,000 metric tons. Its inner holds can be individually adapted to various pressurization and climatic needs. It was sold with no weapons systems and no defensive shielding, but there were plenty of after-market systems which could be fitted to the Action IV's design. They require a dedicated crew of 8, and have no passenger facilities. Note that the Star Wars Adventure Journal, Issue 3 indicates that the Action IV is 110 meters in length, required a crew of ten to operate, and can transport up to 70,000 metric tons of cargo. (HTTE, SWSB, SWJ3, SOG)

Action Tidings
this was one of the many species-specific newsfeeds available to the inhabitants of Cloud City, in orbit around the gas giant Bespin. Action Tidings was produced by and for the Ugnaughts who worked in the city during the height of the Galactic Civil War, although the corporate headquarters and primary studuio facilities were located in a tower in the city of Ugnorgrad, on the Ugnaught Surface. Its most popular anchorbeing was Ars Fivvle, whose holodocumentary Ugnaughts' Progress was distributed across the galaxy. (MC57, PH)

Action V Transport
another starship in the popular Corellian Engineering Corporation Action series, the Action V measure\d 115 meters in length. It required a crew of 10 to operate, and could hold up to 80,500 metric tons of cargo. In its stock form it was unarmed, and had minimal shielding. (DFRSB)

Action VI Freighter
another medium bulk freighter built by the Corellian Engineering Corporation, the Action VI measures 125 meters in length and can carry up to 90,000 metric tons. It has no weapons systems and minimal defensive shielding. It requires a dedicated crew of 10, and has no passenger facilities. (MMY, RASB)

Action-Keynne XII
this is a model of Corellian transport ship. They were designed to transport highly valuable cargoes, and were one of the most luxurious Corellian ships ever built. The Action-Keynne XII was also heavily armed, with multiple tiers of weaponry. (SOP)

Activv1
this Drearian Defense Riot Shield was manufactured from layered metal and one-way, mirrored transparisteel. A small notch in the upper section allows a blaster to be aimed and fired from behind it. (CSA)

Actuating Blaster Module
this blaster component takes the excited gas from the Xciter chamber and converts it into a beam of intense energy and light. The energy and light are subsequently focused - a process called galvening - as it passes through the barrel of the weapon. (CFG)

A'Daasha, Corinna
a native of the planet Corellia, Corinna and her twin sister, Kandria, grew up in a wealthy family and never had to struggle to attain anything. Corinna, unlike her sister, grew bored and restless in this existence, and used some of her inheritance to travel among the stars. However, despite the freedom and adventure she experienced, Corinna felt somehow unhappy without Kandria. When Kandria left Corellia to join her, Corinna's spirits immediately rose. The pair eventually settled on Adarlon - Kandria's choice, to which Corinna, quickly agreed - and they established the Glow Dome complex. Corinna often tended bar herself, using a portable holoprojection unit to alter her appearance. She was also sympathetic to the Alliance, having witnessed the news reports brought in by the underground unit No-Holds-Barred. Her attachment to the Alliance provided a sense of security and purpose, something which was missing in her childhood. (WSV)

A'Daasha, Kandria
a native of the planet Corellia, Kandria and her twin sister, Corinna, grew up in a wealthy family and never had to struggle to attain anything. Unlike her sister, Kandria thoroughly enjoyed the life of luxury, but became distraught after Corinna left Corellia to see the galaxy. She decided that she couldn't be without Corinna, and decided to join her in her travels. The pair eventually settled on Adarlon - Kandria's choice, to which Corinna, quickly agreed - and they established the Glow Dome complex. Shortly after the business took off, Kandria became withdrawn and moody, and it was later learned that she had been possessed by the Derriphan known as Ziakas. (WSV)

Adaavi
this was a common name among adult Codru-Ji. (UANT)

Adaka-Vanae
this was a noted member of the Yarkora race. (UANT)

Adamant
a New Republic bulk cruiser that was captured by Qorl over Coruscant. The ship was loaded with armaments and hyperdrive components, which Brakiss and the leaders of the Shadow Academy needed to help shore up the new Imperial Navy. It was on its way to Kuat, but was being inspected by Admiral Ackbar at the time. Qorl's forces disabled the ship's weapons and communications, but left its shields and engines operational. The ship was towed to the Shadow Academy, which was cloaked within Coruscant's system. Note that Jedi Under Siege claims the Adamant was attacked by the Shadow Academy at Kashyyyk. The Second Imperium used the hyperdrive cores and turbolaser batteries from the ship, as well as New Republic shield codes, to outfit their own ships. The resulting confusion allowed the Second Imperium to skip inside Republic defenses, until Ackbar used the shield codes against them and dropped all their shields. The Imperium's fleet was then decimated by Republic cruisers. (LO, JUS)

Adamant
this Victory-class Star Destroyer was sent by Grand Admiral Thrawn to intercept Mara Jade at Abregado, some five years after the Battle of Endor. (DFR)

Adamantine
this New Republic escort cruiser supported the Borealis during Leia Organa-Solo's mission to meet with Seti Ashgad. The ship was one of the first to succumb to the Death Seed plague launched by Ashgad and Dzym, and was stolen by Ashgad's people and destroyed on a world far from Nam Chorios. Hand-held weapons from the crew were later used to arm the Newcomers on the planet, in the uprising planned by Ashgad and Dzym. (POT)

Adamastor
an aquatic planet. (AIR)

Adannon, Alric
this noble of House Cadriaan placed second during the Vor-cal hunt which took place shortly after the Battle of Hoth. He was not chosen to represent Cadriaan at the Vor-cal shortly before the Battle of Endor, however, since Cadriaan had employed a team of Alliance agents to infiltrate the hunt and discover the motives of House Melantha. Adannon was livid at being passed over, and decided to set out for Vilhon on his own in order to take matters into his own hands. He was known as a loud, arrogant man with a fiery temper, but he was nevertheless loyal to House Cadriaan. During the hunt, it was learned that Adannon used a contact within Boss Tosk's organization to obtain access to Vilhon, a fact that doomed his political career and earned him the wrath of Boss Tosk. (LOE)

Adar
this winged reptile evolved on the hostile world of Omiddelon III. Individuals could grow to lengths reaching three meters, and they hunted in large packs. Adars had long, scaled bodies which had a row of short spines along the dorsal ridge. Their heads resembled scorpions, with a flat skull surrounded by a pair of strong mandibles. Adars have high metabolisms, and stored water and food in their tails. When food was scarce and their internal reserves were too low to sustain activity, adars could go into a trance-like state and wait for prey to come to them. (COG)

Adar
this Imperial Prefect controlled the planet Denevar during the Galactic Civil War. He accused Reson Nath of a variety of crimes, including abetting a known criminal and conspiring against him. The trial was presided over by Janq Paramexor, and overseen by Moff Gorliz. As was often the case in respect to the various guilds sanctioned by the Empire, Nath was subject to the rules of the Paramexor Guild of Hunters. Her punishment was to face her accuser in armed combat. Adar, a thin man without much physical training, realized that he would be killed in combat against Nath, and withdrew the charges. However, Moff Gorliz had already placed a bet with Janq Paramexor that Adar would last at least ten minutes in the battle, and ordered them to begin combat. (GG10)

Adarakh
this male Noghri served as Leia Organa Solo's bodyguard, during the period following the Battle of Duro. In the confusion that ensued when Coruscant was attacked by the Yuuzhan Vong, Adarakh and Meewalh tried to ensure that the Solos, along with the infant Ben Skywalker, reached the Millennium Falcon safely. They were fooled, along with the Solos, by the appearance of Welda and Tarc. When the combat droid YVH 1-507A revealed that Welda was actually Viqi Shesh, the rogue Senator lashed out with a powershiv and stabbed Adarakh in the ribs. The weapon punctured his heart, killing the Noghri almost instantly. Adarakh died bravely, giving the Solos a chance to escape the planet. (EVR, SBS)

Adare, Terena
this woman served as the chief administrator of the planet Dantooine, during the years following the Great Sith War. When the planet was virtually abandoned by the Old Republic after Darth Malak destroyed the Jedi enclave on Dantooine, Administrator Adare was faced with economic disaster until she opened up the planet to treasure-seekers and archaeologists who wanted to sift through the ruins. While these opportunists brought credits to Dantooine, they also caused many problems for the planet's native population. (LAWS)

Adarese
this was the spoken language of the Adarian race, which consisted of a collection of tonal inflections that could be easily formed by the Adarians' rigid mouth. (UANT)

Adarian
an alien race native to the planet Adari, the Adarians are humanoids with unusual cranial structures. Their skulls are elongated and tall, and have a large hole which goes completely through it. They have no ears or noses, and their mouth is ringed with sharp, bony ridges instead of lips. The Adarians make up for the lack of ears with a covering of fine hairs along their skulls that pick up the vibration of sound waves. A series of glands near the skin's surface allows them to smell. Their throats can be distended and filled with air, and the resulting "long call" can be useful as a communication method or a kind of defensive action. The Adarians have a rigid caste system which dominates their society, and they have evolved an advanced technology based on the use of super-cooled carbon-ice computers. They were able to remain neutral during the Galactic Civil War by signing a non-agression treaty with the Empire, providing the Empire with unlimited raw materials in return for their neutrality. (GG12)

Adarlon
this planet, located in the Minos Cluster, functioned as the Cluster's entertainment destination. By itself, Adarlon is a rugged, mountainous world originally settled by a group of Old Republic altruists - many from Alderaan - for its beauty rather than its resources. They were particularly well-funded, and their society grew into one of entertainment rather than survival. It was on Adarlon that the holographic medium was developed as an entertainment staple, and music from the planet is also highly sophisticated. Its primary industry was centered around tourism, and its temperate climate was well-suited to the various resorts and parks which operated there. Adarlon has a day which lasts 21 standard hours, and a year which lasts 381 local days. Adarlon was also the home to one of the most famous opera companies in the galaxy, and the famous opera singer Neile Janna was a native of Adarloon. (GG6, SWJ5)

Adas
this ancient Sith King was the gatekeeper of the Sith holocron used by the leader of Onderon, some 4,000 years before the Battle of Yavin. Adas was a huge man who had used the power of the Dark Side of the Force to conquer his homeworld some 24,000 years before the Great Sith War. Sith scholars of the period believed that Adas created the holocron more as a testament to his achievements than as a teaching device. (TOJC)

Adazian Liebke
this Weequay was a Major in the Alliance's Special Forces unit on New Kisge. A native of Sriluur, Liebke was part of a family with a rich military history, and he himself served in Dnalvec's militia and fought in the Houk-Weequay Conflicts. Adazian was known for his ability to handle the nocturnal dark wolf, and maintained a pack of twenty during his tenure with the Alliance. Adazian was also a member of Eclipse Team's Twilight Squadron, and was an accomplished wilderness fighter. (AIR, SWJ6)

this starship, given the New Republic Registry number RN32-000439, was owned by Refka Trell. (SOL)

Aden, Tev
this man served as Dictio L'varren's chief aide, during the early years of the New Republic. Aden was killed shortly after the death of Shek Barayel, when he was confronted by Kaleb Darme. Kella Rand was the first to discover Aden's body and question Darme. Circumstantial evidence in the form of a remote detonation device found on Aden's body led many to believe he was responsible for Barayel's death, but he was later absolved of any crime when Imperial forces were discovered to be behind Barayel's murder. (SWJ6)

Adept

Adipose Lice
this parasite lived on the fatty deposits of its host, causing tremendous weight loss in just a matter of hours. Experimentation in controlled reduction of bodily weight, via the injection of adipose lice, has been discussed and experimented with by many doctors and scientists. A selective toxin was injected to halt the spread of the lice. However, the adipose lice do not care which fatty tissues it attacks, and it consumes all fat it encounters. The treatment, which is extremely expensive, often causes more harm than good. (TBSB)

Adi's Rest

Adler Roty
this alien as a noted Sorcerer of Tund, during the years leading up to the Clone Wars. Adler Roty was also a showman, and traveled across the galaxy to entertain beings of all species with his unusual magic. He made sure to reinforce the idea that his form of magic was not The Force, but actual magic. He often used the adjectives "Facinorous, Moliminous, Nefandous, and Numamorous" to describe his show. (HNN4)

Adminidome
this was the operational headquarters found on Hologram Fun World. (HNN5)

Admiral Korvin
Wilhuff Tarkin assigned this Trade Federation battleship to Raith Sienar's small fleet, during their attempt to obtain a Sekotan starship three years after the Battle of Naboo. At the time, the Admiral Korvin had not yet been handed over to the Old Republic Navy. (RP)

Admonitor
this Imperial-class Star Destroyer was under the command of Captain Dagon Niriz during the years following the Battle of Yavin.

Adner, Divina Quri
Wilek Nereus had proposed marriage to this woman, a native of Arkonne III. Unfortunately, Divina was killed by Phean Tic'Karcta, a jealous rival for Divina's business. Nereus eventually hunted down and killed Tic'Karcta to exact a measure of revenge. (TBSB)

Adnerem
this race of tall, thin humanoids was native to the planet Adner. They are distinguished by their large, triangular-shaped heads, which have a prominent bulge or knob in the center of their forehead. They have wide, flat eyes, and their thin arms end in hands which have four thin, talon-tipped fingers but lack a truly opposable thumb. The Adnerem were known for their desire to improve their socio-economic positions in life, which often required them to work for the betterment of their individual families, or steri. The average Adnerem tended to be asocial and introverted, but they were often found in small groups. A well-known phrase described the Adnerem this way: "Two Adnerem are a party, four a dinner, and six a funeral." (WBC, AE, SWJ11)

Ado Eemon
this being was the silver-tongued ruler of Caramm V, during the final years of the Old Republic. Eemon allied himself and his homeworld with the Confederacy of Independent Systems during the Clone Wars, and turned over huge industrial and manufacturing facilities to the Separatists in exchange for certain concessions. It was later learned that Eemon was not above skimming some of the HMP droid gunships produced on Caramm V for his own private fleet, which he used to eliminated any threats to his power. However, in his jealous desire to control everything, he destroyed much of Caramm V's beautiful landscape. (X3)

this Imperial depot, located on the planet Jerne, was rumored to be the resting place of the Eternity Crystal. Luke Skywalker and Leia Organa raced to Adony to discover the crystal before Darth Vader could, some time during the Galactic Civil War. Vader rigged the vault where the crystal rested - a nearly impenetrable coffer - to explode when the Alliance agents tried to open it. However, the Dark Lord was also caught in the explosion. Luke and Leia managed to escape, and Vader was buried under the rubble. He survived as well, but the crystal - and much of Adony Station - were lost. (CSWDW)

Shelvay recruited her into the Alliance, where she trained with the likes of Page and Keleman Ciro. Both believed she was too aggressive and hot-headed, but she served faithfully as a Unit Commander during the Galactic Civil War. After the Battle of Endor, she served in Page's Commandos, and was part of the assault team dispatched to Kal'Shebbol to take down Imperial Moff Kentor Sarne. When Sarne escaped and the New Republic decided to hunt him down, Kaiay accepted command of the corvette FarStar and set out to capture Moff Sarne in Kathol Sector. (GG9, DARK, KO)

Adrona
this woman was an Imperial Prefect during the Galactic Civil War. (GG10)

A-DSD
see Advanced Dwarf Spider Droid (LAWS)

AD-series Droid
this model of droid was often used on military bases as an armory administrator, providing specialized weaponsry and equipment repair. Designed and manufactured by Arakyd, the AD series was targetted for sale to the Empire as an armory unit, programmed to handle weapons maintenance more efficiently that humans. However, the Empire deemed that the benefits of the AD-series droid was marginal (estimates of less than 0.001% gains in efficiency have been documented), and declined to purchase the AD. Arakyd had assumed that the Empire would purchase them and mass-produced the AD-series, and found themselves with a huge inventory of unsold droids. Eventually, Arakyd managed to unload the AD-series to local law enforcement agencies and independent mercenaries. (ROE, GG10, FTD)

Adsila Rifts
this area of shifting dunes was located on the extreme western edge of the Doaba Badlands, on the planet Socorro. The area was known for its huge concentration of sand wells, which made it especially dangerous to traverse. (BSS)

this ball of searing-hot rock was the innermost world of the Aduba System. (GMR4)

Aduba-2
this planet, a terrestrial world draped in a poisonous atmosphere, was the second planet in the Aduba System. (GMR4)

Aduba-3
Aduba-3 was the third planet in the Aduba System, located in the Outer Rim. It was orbited by a single moon, and was originally settled as an agricultural world. Despite its arid appearance, Aduba-3's plains were fed by arterial rivers that snaked through the planet's crust. However, after it was rumored to have rich and widely-distributed lodes of chromium, Aduba-3 experienced a boom in population that rendered much of its landscape a dusty wasteland. These rumors turned out to be false, the product of several greedy schemers who seeded existing mines with chromium deposits. Because of this deceipt - which many later attributed to the Tenloss Syndicate - many spacers chose to avoid the planet altogether, as a reminder of its troublesome past. It orbited a fourth-class yellow sun, and was one of many planets throughout the galaxy with a native population of banthas. Han Solo, Jaxxon, and a group of adventurers liberated a village on this planet in the months following the Battle of Yavin. The village was being held by Serji-X Arrogantus. (MC7, MC16, GMR4)

Aduba-4
this was the fourth planet in the Aduba System, a terrestrial world that was orbited by a pair of moons. (LTA3, MC60, GMR4)

Aduba-5
this gas giant was the fifth planet in the Aduba System. It was orbited by seven moons. (GMR4)

this frozen ball of ice was the sixth and outermost world in the Aduba System. It was orbited by a single moon. (GMR4)

Adum Larp
this Rodian male owned and operated an equipment and supply store on Dantooine, during the era of the Great Sith War. (KOTOR)

Adumar
this remote world, located on the inner edge of Wild Space, was colonized some 10,000 years before the Battle of Yavin by separatists who had rebelled against the Old Republic. They had been defeated by the Republic's forces, and given the option of death or resettlement. They chose to be resettled, opting to take their chances on a remote planet rather than be executed. The separatists evolved outside the mainstream of galactic growth for millennia, until they were contacted by the New Republic some 8 years after the Battle of Endor. The human natives of the planet, who call themselves the Adumari, developed a complex social structure which was based on personal honor and triumph over one's enemies. The primary industries of the planet were based on the production of war materiel, and they were skilled in the manufacture of proton torpedoes. They lacked a world government when a New Republic mapping ship accidentally found the planet and first contacted them, but the Adumari quickly learned that the Republic was not the only power in the galaxy. The perator of Cartann, Pekaelic ke Teldan, offered both the remnants of the Empire and the New Republic the chance to prove themselves and earn the alliance of Adumar in what basically became a popularity contest between Wedge Antilles and Turr Phennir. The perator himself was eventually ousted in favor of his son, who was more receptive to creating a democratic world government, where his father had wanted a government controlled by Cartann leaders. In the end, Adumar welcomed the New Republic and became a member world. Adumar has two moons. (SOA, PH)

Adumar Central Control
this was the starship traffic control center of the planet Adumar. (SOA)

Adumar: Five Years of Union
written and produced by Hallis Saper, this award-winning documentary portrayed the events of Operation Joystick and the struggle to bring the planet Adumar into the membership of the New Republic. (PH)

Adumari
this was the name used by the human inhabitants of the planet Adumar. The descendants of a group of people who rebelled against the Old Republic and were defeated some 10,000 years before the Battle of Yavin, the Adumari continued to be a rebellious society even after they settled the planet. Their records indicated that there had been at least two huge wars which reduced the people to barbarism, but their tenacious nature had brought them back each time. They had a complex social structure which was based on personal honor and triumph over one's enemies. Any Adumari could challenge another Adumari in armed combat, which was usually fought to the death unless the victor chose to lessen the prestige of his victory. Combat was the primary sport in Adumari society, with contests in ground-based combat and aerial dogfighting. The techniques developed by the Adumari were crude by modern galactic standards, since there were very few battles that involved more than two participants, and each was usually fighting for prestige rather than learning from past mistakes. As a people, though, the Adumari were known as hard-working, industrious people who developed sophisticated manufacturing facilities. What was considered unusual was that, despite their obsession with fightercraft, the Adumari never re-developed any form of space travel, a circumstance attributed to their unique society. When the Adumari were contacted by the New Republic and urged to form a world government, the perator of Cartann, Pekaelic ke Teldan, was approached first, since Cartann seemed to be the strongest of the existing city-states. However, the perator took it upon himself to ingratiate himself with the diplomats, in an effort to beat his rivals to the punch and become the planetary ruler. However, this Cartann-based government was met with opposition from several other nations, including the Yedagonian Confederacy and Halbegardia. In the end, it was discovered that the New Republic diplomat to Adumar, Tomer Darpen, was leading the Cartann leadership down a path he had chosen, rather than forming a democratic planetary government. The perator of Cartann opted to retire rather than be executed, and abdicated the throne to his son. A more representative world government was formed, and the Adumari elected to join the New Republic. (SOA, PH)

Adumari Union
this was the name of the world government envisioned by Escalion, perator of Yedagon, for the planet Adumar. It was endorsed by the perators of Halbegardia, Thozzelling, and Tetanne, and they offered the nation of Cartann - under the leadership of a new perator, Balass ke Teldan - a chance to join it and help create its laws and policies. The Adumari Union was eventually admitted to the New Republic. (SOA)

Advanced Appendage Bus
introduced shortly before the onset of the Clone Wars, this was Cybot Galactica's proprietary version of the Universal Socket Interface. While competitors and many small corporations claimed it was CG's method of driving its competition out of business, CG stated that the AAB was simply "more advanced technology." Benchmark tests showed that the AAB was up to three times as fast as the USI, at least according to CG spokebeings. Unfortunately for CG's customers, the AAB was incompatible with the USI, requiring the purchase of new technology in order to comply. (HNN5)

Advanced Base Baskarn
this was the name of the remote Alliance starfighter base established on Baskarn during the Alliance during the early years of the Galactic Civil War. (SWJ2)

Advanced Dwarf Spider Droid
this second-generation dwarf spider droid, designated the A-DSD, was manufactured by the Commerce Guild to be able to carry and fire a pair of target-seeking missiles. The A-DSD was also larger and more durable that the standard dwarf spider droid, the A-DSD also was armed with a heavy-duty laser cannon. (LAWS)

Advanced Explosives Handbook
a compilations of songs written and played by the band Deeply Religious. It has been banned by the Imperial Board of Culture. (GG9)

Advanced Reconnaissance Clone Trooper
known as an ARC Trooper or an Advanced Reconnaissance Commando, this was the term used to describe an elite soldier created from the genetic material of Jango Fett, cloned by the Kaminoans at the order of Jedi Master Sifo-Dyas. The Kaminoans had reservations about the ability of the Jedi Order to provide enough leaders for millions of clone troopers, so the ARC Trooper was developed to fill any possible voids. The ARC trooper had greater independence and adaptability than the standard clone trooper, and were often used in small groups for highly-sensitive missions. Jango himself had described the training program for the ARC Troopers, and was able to bypass the Kaminoans and instill his own orders into their training. Primary among these personal orders was directive to destroy all immature clones in the event that the Separatists attacked Kamino. Jango's final orders were that the young clones were to serve the Republic, or to die before they fell into enemy hands. They were trained to be exceptionally strong and durable, with stamina that would amaze any race. The ability to recover from physical exertion was programmed into their training, with the ability to drop into various levels of rest to meet the individual needs of a trooper's body. They could even sleep on the march. The basic training of an ARC trooper was geared toward sending them out on solo missions, although they were often trained in small groups to minimize the time required to get them trained. The independence of the ARC troopers, however, made them somewhat unpredictable in battle. For this reason, the Kaminoans kept the ARC Troopers in stasis tubes until it was absolutely necessary to use them. Among the traits retained from Jango's original genes were several pieces of his memory; most prominently, the ARC Troopers retained a measure of disdain for the Jedi Knights. (OWS, RDK, WOTC, TCD, VD3)

Adventure Hiker and Hunter
this small corporation produced a variety of rations used by military personnel and civilians while out in the field. (ROE)

Adventurer
this long-barreled slugthrower was produced by Czerka Arms during the last decades of the Old Republic. Easily broken down for transport or concealment, the Adventurer found a niche among bounty hunters such as Aurra Sing. It had excellent aim over long distances, and used a rich oxidizer to propel darts and slugs. (WOTC)

Adventurer
this Verpine starship is a pre-Empire vintage with a lifting body design and hoverjets in place of repulsorlifts. It had no weapons or shields, and did not have an astromech droid for navigation. It was designed to be a small, personal sporting craft. (BTS)

Adventurer
this Crescent-class Mark II transport was owned by Aelon Reglis, after he decided that he was going to be the first member of his family to travel among the stars. He gave the Adventurer to his daughter, Lynx, as a graduation present after she graduated from the Imperial Academy. She found little free time to actually use the ship, and it only saw action when she impersonated the Alliance agent Sapphire on a mission to Kira Sector. Shortly afterward, Lynx was implicated in a plot to steal military secrets and was arrested. The Adventurer was impounded by Imperial forces and later dismantled. (SS)

Adversary
this Imperial-class Star Destroyer was stationed at Heriston, shortly after the Battle of Yavin, for a series of repairs. (RESB)

Advertiscreen
during the last decades of the Old Republic, advertiscreens were used to promote products with loud audio and glaring video. These large viewscreens could be mounted anywhere, from starports to alleyways, and could continuously display a series of product advertisements. (SHPT)

Advising Circle
this section of the primary city of Kegan was used by V-Tan and O-Vieve as a base from which they ruled the planet. Every Keganite was allowed to enter the Advising Circle and voice their opinion, which would be considered in the maintaining of the General Good. (FFT)

Advisory Council
this seven-member governmental body was created by the New Republic to act as a balance to the power of the Chief of State. The Advisory Council was also a sounding board for the Chief of State's ideas. The Advisory Council could revoke the orders of the Chief of State, and could impeach the Chief of State if five of seven members voted for it. (RASB)

Advora
this was the capital city of the planet Riflor. The exact location of Advora on the planet's surface was of little consequence to the native Advozsec, since it had been moved some eighty-two times before the Battle of Endor due to the frequent earthquakes that altered Riflor's surface. (GMR4)

Advora Learning Center
this was one of the most prominent educational facilites found on the planet Riflor. It was located in the capital city of Advora. (GMR4)

Advozse
this was the native language of the Advozsec race. (GMR4)

Advozse
this term describes a single member of the Advozsec race. (GG12, CCG2)

Advozsec
an alien race characterized by their short stature, large black eyes, and enlarged cranium, the Advozsec were native to the planet Riflor. Their skulls were punctuated by a short, thick horn which protruded from the center of their forehead. Their ears were short and pointed, and grew close to the skull. Despite the inhosptiable nature of Riflor's environment, the Advozsec managed to evolve and grow as a species and as a civilization. Their large eyes allowed them to see in the murky light. Riflor's constant tectonic activity instilled a sense of skepticism and pessimism, as the Advozsec cities were continually being rebuilt after natural disasters. A herbivorous race, the Advozsec were known to become violently ill should they consume any form of animal protein. Their technology mirrored that found in much of the galaxy, although they tended to build it on a smaller, more transportable scale. The basic tenet of Advozsec society was simple: plan for the worst, control all posssible variables, and survive. The Advozsec first made contact with the Old Republic some 10,000 years before the Battle of Yavin, after their first attempts at hyperspace travel brought them to the attention of explorers. Millennia later, Riflor was destroyed by a Yuuzhan Vong bio-virus that killed the planet's plantlife. This left millions of Advozsec to starve to death. Only those Advozsec who were offworld at the time, as well as the Bomminde fammily of Tejrivozs, managed to survive. (GG12, UANT, GMR4)

Adz-class Destroyer
this Imperial starship design was used as a patrol ship in many outlying regions, and was developed after the death of Grand Admiral Thrawn. Their primary armament consisted of three quad-laser cannons and three dual-cannon ion batteries. They could achieve .55 past lightspeed, and maintained six fighters within her bays. One of the primary technological advances used in the Adz-class destroyer was the inclusion of an array of slave circuitry that allowed a crew of 24 to handle virtually every system. At 150 meters in length, the Adz-class patrol destroyer required 12 gunners and could transport up to 8 passengers and 4 prisoners in its brig. (TT, CTD)

AE-35

this highly-volcanic, tectonically-active planet was the only known source of stygium crystals. By the early years of the New Order, much of Aeten II's sources of stygium had run dry. The planet was destroyed during the height of the New Order when Grand Admiral Martio batch, searching for a source of stygian crystals with which to produce a fool-proof cloaking device for the Empire, blasted the planet into fragments with the superlaser installed on the Tarkin. (X1, SWI66, NEGV)

Aethersprite-class Delta-7 Light Interceptor
this wedge-shaped fighter craft was developed and manufactured by Kuat Drive Yards, some 22 years before the Battle of Yavin. Measuring eight meters in length, the Aethersprite was created from the original designs of Adi Gallia by a design team led by Walex Blissex. The ship required an astromech droid to assist the pilot, but its limited size demanded that the astromech be stripped down in order to be hard-wired into the ship's systems. The original Aethersprite design lacked a hyperdrive, requiring it to be transported through hyperspace with the help of a booster craft or hyperdrive ring. Later models were equipped with a Class 3 hyperdrive unit. The Aethersprite measured eight meters in length, with a wingspan of just 3.92 meters. It was a single-passenger vehicle, which could accommodate sixty kilograms of cargo and was capable of speeds of 12,000 kilometers per hour in atmosphere. The Aethersprite was armed with a pair of dual laser cannons mounted just below and behind the nose of the ship. As the Clone Wars ground on, Anakin Skywalker stripped his own Delta-7 down and removed the main powerplant, modifying it to accept the engines from the TransGalMeg Syliure-31 hyperdrive ring. This new ship, with the huge hyperdrives mounted at the front of the ship, was painted in bold colors and bore a striking resemblance to the podrace Anakin once flew to win the Boonta Eve Classic. Despite its technologically-advanced design, the Aethersprite and the entire Delta line was dropped from KDY's repertoire when Emperor Palpatine chose them for the construction of Star Destroyers. All design and manufacturing information on the Delta fighters was sold to Sienar Fleet Systems about ten years after the Battle of Geonosis. (SWDB, HNN4, X2, NEGV, SQ, GMR9, SWI77)

(IJ, PJSB)

Af'El
homeworld of the Defel race, it is a large, high-gravity world orbiting the ultraviolet supergiant Ka'Dedus. The planet has a thick atmosphere but no ozone layer, and so ultraviolet light passes directly to the surface. Heavy atmospheric gases then block most of the remaining wavelengths of light. For these reasons, all lifeforms on the planet have evolved with the ability to see in ultraviolet light. The planet's main export is the metal meleenium. At one time, Kuat Drive Yards mined Af'El for many of its natural minerals. (DFR, GG4, CRO)

Aga
a semi-sentient race of huge, lumbering predators native to Zelos II, the aga have thick, gray skin, yellow eyes, and six muscular legs. The front two legs can be used as arms in battle. They average four meters at the shoulder, and are formidable beasts. They attack by first issuing a terrible screech which immobilizes its prey, then they lash out with their front two arms. The aga were used by Emperor Palpatine to allow stormtroopers to perform highly-secret tasks. Palpatine had the aga drugged until they began hallucinating, then made the greatest fears permanent with the Dark Side of the Force. The aga, much like cidwen and avogwi, were then used as guards. They viciously attacked anything or anybody that came near them. (COJ, PG2)

Aga Culpa
this thin-bodied humanoid ruled over the moon of Nar Shaddaa, some four years after the Battle of Naboo. Aga Culpa was distinguished by his pale gray skin, as well as the full-scalp cyborg unit on top of his head. He made a pact with the slave raider Krayn, allowing him to control the spice processing facilities on Nar Shaddaa in return for the freedom of the beings who lived on the station. Aga Culpa was viewed as weak for this agreement, an assessment which was quite correct. When Siri Tachi and Anakin Skywalker escaped from Krayn, they were able to secure Culpa's help in allowing a slave revolt, as Culpa agreed to order the Nar Shaddaa guards to do nothing to stop the slaves. (JQ, JQC)

Agamar
this planet, located in the Lahara Sector of the Outer Rim Territories, was the home of Keyan Farlander. It was the site of an Imperial invasion during the early years of Palpatine's reign as Emperor. Mon Mothma visited there following the Ghorman Massacre, in an effort to help the Agamarians understand Palpatine's evil. Later, it was the site of a hidden Alliance base, early in the Galactic Civil War. The natives of the planet are known to be rough-hewn farmers known for their stubbornness. During the early stages of the Yuuzhan Vong invasion, Agamar served as a stopping point for refugees fleeing the Outer Rim worlds under attack. This support was given after Leia Organa Solo and Danni Quee pleaded with the planetary leaders for support. As the Yuuzhan Vong stepped up their invasion, Agamar remained a pathway to freedom for those Outer Rim worlds which were attacked. However, when the Yuuzhan Vong learned of the effects of bafforr tree pollen on their vonduun crab armor, they overran Agamar in an effort to extend their control to Ithor. (XW, DF, WS, DTO, DTR)

Agamor Krin
this was the name of a famous Houk individual. (UANT)

Aganof
this alien race is native to the harsh, volcanic planet Kuras III. The Aganof were a species of large, plant-like beings which lacked true sexes. They had a number of small appendages that were used for locomotion, and another set of appendages for sensory input. A row of heat-dissipating flaps and olfactory stalks lined their dorsal region, with small mouths below each flap used to capture small creatures that were attracted to the flaps. Each end of their bodies ends in a jointed limb which is tipped with a sharp claw. They lived in the caves of Kuras III, and survived without the senses of sight and hearing. These beings spent much of their free time engaged in philosophical debates and intellectual arguments, using vibrations and scents to relay their ideas. They had little concept of an alien species, and knew nothing of the Galactic Civil War. (PG3, AE)

Agao
this city, located on the planet Bassadro, was founded near the Agao Range. (SWI65)

Agao Range
this range of dormant volcanos was located on the planet Bassadro. Most of the mountains and their foothills were formed of obsidian, the result of ancient eruptions and lava flows. This made travel through the Agao Range difficult, since it was easy to slip on the glassy surface, and shards of obsidian cut like knives through flesh and bone. (SWI65)

Agao-Nir
this small village was located near the city of Agao, on the planet Bassadro. It was here that the Confederacy of Independent Systems claimed that a battalion of Old Republic clone troopers wiped out the entire population, at the order of the Jedi Knights. (SWI66)

Agapos the Eighth
this ruler of the Sunesi people was a well-liked but largely ineffective leader. Under his rule, the Empire established its presence on Monor II. His son, Agapos the Ninth, exhibited some sensitivity to the Force, and his natural abilities led Agapos to retire early. He let his gifted son take over and went into seclusion. (SWJ10)

Agapos the Ninth
this Sunesi was the son of Agapos the Eighth, Agapos was a gifted child with some sensitivity to the Force. As his talent grew, Agapos became able to heal others with a touch. He believed that his ability was simply the workings of the Maker, and that he himself was simply a conduit. When his father retired from leading the Sunesi people, Agapos the Ninth took over and began focusing their attentions on the Empire, rather than on their tribal disputes. His outspoken protest of the Empire's mining of cirrifog helped to unite the Sunesi, and the death mark imposed by the Empire made him even more respected. He was forced into hiding, though, when bounty hunters began searching for him. One pair of hunters, Chenlambec and Tinian I'att, finally managed to capture him. Chen's plan was to get him off Monor II in order to alleviate some of the Imperial pressure on the Sunesi, and to help keep Agapos alive. His teachings and writing had become popular among the worlds of the Alliance, and his philosophy was well regarded. Daye Azur-Jamin managed to meet up with Agapos on Treka Point, where Agapos told the young man that he needed to find Tinian I'att and let her know he was still alive. (SWJ10)

Agen Kolar
this Zabrak Jedi Knight was one of the handful of Jedi who survived the initial stages of the Battle of Geonosis. Agen Kolar was part of the small group who were surrounded by the droid armies of Count Dooku and his Separatists, just before the Army of the Republic arrived on Geonosis. Unfortunately for Kolar, his apprentice Tan Yuster died at Geonosis. Shortly afterward, Kolar was dispatched as part of the forces which attempted to liberate the planet Brentaal from Separatist control. The mission was based on intelligence which had been leaked to the Republic by the Separatists, in the hope of ambushing the Jedi and their clone trooper forces. The Separatists were, therefore, ready for the Jedi, and Agen Kolar's assault force was quickly captured. Kolar tried to inhibit Shogar Tok and his forces by claiming that Shaak Ti was dead. Despite the assistance provided by Quinlan Vos on Brentaal, when the Jedi Council ordered Agen Kolar to bring him in for questioning, the Zabrak didn't hesitate. He tracked Quinlan, who was operating under the alias of Korto Vos, to Nar Shaddaa, and tried to capture him. Quinlan's underworld acquaintences, especially Khaleen, allowed him to escape, and Agen Kolar had to return to Coruscant empty-handed. This was actually what the Jedi Council had in mind, however, because they had been working for months to infiltrate Quinlan's Korto Vos alias into the Separatist network. They chose Agen Kolar to bring him in because they knew he would never actually kill Quinlan, despite any crimes he had been accused of. As the Clone Wars ground on, Agen Kolar was one of the many Jedi who were promoted to Jedi Master, and he was also appointed a position on the Jedi Council. As the Clone Wars began to wind down after the First Battle of Coruscant, Agen Kolar was among the group of Jedi Masters who accompanied Mace Windu to arrest Chancellor Palpatine, after it was learned that he had finally been revealed as Darth Sidious. However, the Jedi were unprepared for Palpatine's powers, and Agen Kolar was quickly killed during the fighting, leaving Mace Windu to face Palpatine alone. Agen Kolar was portrayed by Tux Akindoyeni in Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones and Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith. (OWS, J2, RDB, IS3)

Agent
this modified Anxarta-class freighter was was one of the last of its kind produced by Sienar Fleet Systems.

this unique Trilon starship design measured roughly twenty meters in length, and was designed specifically for combat. Its insectile shape was easily recognizable, with a thin main hull and two forward-facing mandibles and two retractable steering vanes. The mass of the Aggressor was higher than in most starfighters, but this was compensated for by the fact that most interior space was dedicated to power cores and weapons systems. (EGV, NEGV)

Aggressor Wing
this flight group of Y-Wings was commanded by the New Republic's Colonel Salm during the period following the Battle of Endor. The Aggressor Wing was given the task of delaying the evacuation of Brentaal IV, in order to prevent the fleeing Imperials from looting the planet prior to the Battle of Brentaal.

The Agonizer took heavy damage during the battle, but survived. (SOC, SOA)

Agonizer
this unusual, experimental weapon was developed by the Confederacy of Independent Systems during the height of the Clone Wars. Like many of the weapons developed for the Separatists, the agonizer was designed to cause intense physical pain to a clone trooper, without causing physical trauma.

this was the brand name of Arakyd's nerve disruption system. Resembling tall, three-legged spider, the Agonizer-6 was produced for use by the Empire in controlling large crowds. The Agonizer-6 was equipped with an AI-4 droid brain, making it a fully-functional, independent crowd control device. The droid brain was stripped of any life preservation programming, and was also devoid of personality modules. These devices, originally designed to incapacitate a living being by sending out a neural impulse that disrupted the normal operation of the nervous system, were later used by the Empire as interrogation tools. The manufacture of the Agonizer-6 was later outlawed by the New Republic. (EGW)

Agri, Pellas
this man was an agent of House Pelagia who worked as a troublemaker and spy for much of his life. His father had died in a House Mecetti prison, unjustly arrested for a crime he didn't commit. This left young Agri with a burning hatred of House Mecetti. He was attacked by a group of thugs from House Mecetti on Lamuir IV, shortly after the Battle of Yavin. Working under the alias of Coros Telari, he had stolen a datafile from Mecetti, and was hoping to return it to his Pelagia masters. A team of Alliance agents, hoping to meet Trel Modetto aboard the Eternal Hope, were directed to the site of the attack by Janna Pallask. Their efforts in defeating the thugs saved Agri's life. He spent a great deal of time in a bacta, but owed a debt of gratitude to the Alliance agents. (TSIA)

AgriCorps
see Agricultural Corps (RESB)

Agricultural Administration
this was the primary organization, funded by the Old Republic, to oversee the production of food and the processing of agricultural products. The AgAdmin was supported by the Agricultural Corps of the Jedi Knights, which provided much of the manpower needed to bring agriculture to the far-flung worlds of the Republic. (WOTC)

Agricultural Corps
this vast body of Jedi trainees was part of the the Jedi Council's student development systems. Working in support of the Old Republic's Agricultural Aministration, the AgriCorps ostensibly provided a support system for newly settled planets. Those worlds which had need of agricultural improvement - primarily terraformed worlds, but also planets damaged by industrial misuse - could petition the Agricultural Corps for assistance in bringing plantlife to their environment. Underlying the goodwill of the AgriCorps was the belief that all Jedi Padawans needed a way to learn about the nature of life and the balance it brought to the galaxy. The patience needed to nurture crops to grow in harsh environments was a direct paralle to the patience a Jedi Knight needed to discover peace in an unsettled situation. Despite these basic ideals, many students of the Force feared being placed in the AgriCorps, for such placement held the assumption that they lacked the ability to become full Jedi Knights. (RF, WOTC)

Agrierd Intergalactics
this small corporation produced a number of devices for use in fighting fires. (GFT)

Agrilat
a planet located near Corellia, Agrilat was home to a strange crystal swamp. At one time, Han Solo and Dengar participated in a dangerous swoop race there.

Aguarl III
this ocean world was the site of an Alliance base populated by the Mon Calamari and Quarren following the first Imperial attack on Calamari. A Quarren spy for the Empire provided the planet's location, and a TIE Bomber attack was launched against the planet. The Alliance's newly-installed defense system took out three of the four bombers, but Ranulf Trommer was able to recover minimal control of his ship and launch concussion missiles at the base. The base took grievous hits, and had to be evacuated. (ROC)

Aguilae
the female Jawa that managed the Jawa Traders scavenger lot in Mos Eisley. The name Aquilae was given to her by human customers who couldn't pronounce her given name, Khea Nkuul of the Weekkata tribe. She found that running a business in which she sold mechanical things was harder than she thought, given that she was a Jawa. So, she hired Mace Windu to be her salesman. Shortly after R2-D2 and C-3PO landed on Tatooine, after blasting away from the Tantive IV, Aquilae and Mace were forced to go to work for Jek Nkik and his tribe while trying to swing a deal with them to recover CZ-3. They barely escaped the destruction of Jek's sandcrawler by Imperial forces searching for the droids. When she finally caught up with CZ-3, it had been blasted to pieces by Zutton.

All three men were eventually captured by Jango Fett on Coruscant, while the bounty hunter was searching for Jervis Gloom. (BH)

Ahk'laht
this Noghri served as Leia Organa-Solo's bodyguard in the years prior to the appearance of Admiral Daala and the discovery of the Maw Installation. During a series of negotiations between Leia and a representative of the Barabel people, Ahk'laht physically manhandled the Barabel minister when he refused access to Alater-ka for the New Republic fleet. The political and personal embarrassment led Leia to send Ahk'laht back to Honoghr with the message that the Noghri were no longer indebted to the family of Darth Vader. (JASB)

Ah'Kra
a city on Coyn, it was also the site of the Ah'Kra'Tais starport. (PG3)

Ahleazah
this Mon Calamari female was captured during the Empire's initial occupation of Calamari and forced to work with the medical corps. The rest of her family was simply sold into slavery. She did her best to ease the suffering of her people, being moved from camp to camp in order to ensure she didn't develop any relationships. When she saved the life of a minor Imperial Navy officer, the grateful officer brought Ahleazah to his starship, where she was allowed to work with and learn from the advanced medical facilities on the ship. During her treatment of an Alliance pilot who was to undergo interrogation, Ahleazah decided that the time had come for her to act against the Empire which had destroyed her family. She treated the pilot, then got both of them to an escape pod just as the Imperial ship was leaving the Anoat System. An Alliance convoy later rescued them, and Ahleazah served the Alliance - and later, the New Republic - as a medic and healer. (HR)

Ahsi Yim
this yojng Yuuzhan Vong Shaper was training as an adept under her domain sister, Nen Yim, during the last stages of the Yuuzhan Vong invasion of the galaxy. She was elevated to the rank of Master Shaper about a year after the Battle of Coruscant, and decided to join Nen Yim's pursuit of knowledge supporting the Jedi Heresy. When Nen Yim disppeared on her mission to locate Zonama Sekot, Ahsi Yim was assigned to work with the new Master Shape, Qelah Kwaad. Qelah Kwaad questioned the decision openly, to Supreme Overlord Shimrra himself, and inferred that Ahsi Yim had helped Nen Yim escape. Because of this, Shimrra had Ahsi Yim executed. (FP)

Aia
this tall humanoid was native to the moon of Bogg 4. Aia was mostly human in appearance, although white feathers covered his head and his fingers and toes were webbed. He was known on Bogg 4 as a pickpocket and thief, and many beings would have loved to tear his wings off. Aia was one of the few beings who had learned to literally fly between the moons, waiting until those moons with atmospheres grew so close that their atmospheres mingled. During these close periods, Aia could actually fly through space from moon to moon. It was in this way that Aia helped a young Boba Fett travel to Bogg 11 to recover Slave I from Honest Gjon, shortly after the Battle of Geonosis. However, even as he befriended young Boba Fett, Aia stole the boy's last credits from his pockets. (BF1)

Aiaks Fwa

Tash Arranda once came into contact with the ghost of this Jedi Knight, after opening the tome The History of the Jedi Knights on the abandoned space station of Nespis VIII. Bok had been charged with guarding the ancient Jedi library on the station shortly before the advent of Emperor Palpatine's New Order. When Palpatine ordered the extermination of the Jedi, Bok was powerless to defeat the Sith lord. He was ashamed of his failure, and remained on the station as a disembodied spirit, trapped in the book, unwilling to become one with the Force. When he helped Tash Arranda escape from the space station and Borborygmus Gog, he reconciled his shame and allowed himself to become immersed in the Force. (GOF4, GOF11)

Ailon Nova Guard
this military operation, located in the Ailon System, had a prowess in battle that has been compared to the Mandalorians and the Imperial Royal Guard. They trained religiously, and have a 13,000-year history of success, and were allied with the Old Republic. Their basic tenets revolved around the survival of the fittest, and they believed that Emperor Palpatine was the prime example of this. They remained largely non-human in their membership, however, and were virtually disbanded by the Empire. However, the Guard's membership remained focused on their training, and in the wake of the Battle of Endor they worked diligently to eliminate any Imperial threat. (GG9, SWJ15)

this planetary system is the home of the Ailon Nova Guard. (GG9)

Aing-Tii Monks
this strange race of creatures inhabits the furthest reaches of the Kathol Outback, near the Kathol Rift. They are one of the few travelers who actually seem to be able to navigate through the Rift, having been seen emerging from the Rift on several occasions. As a race, the Aing-Tii are tall, edentate mammals whose bodies are covered by bony plates. They have four legs, although they most often stand erect. Their heads are covered by helmet-like plates, and are dominated by two large eyes. They have no visible mouths, but use a group of long, thin tongues to sense and communicate. The tongues are used for tasting, smelling, and feeling. Much of their bony armor is covered with intricate, painted symbols that resemble the markings seen on their strangely-organic starships. Their tails, also covered with thick plates, are prehensile and often used in defense and attack. The Aing-Tii are also Force-sensitive, although they don't use it and control it the way Jedi Knights do. No one is sure exactly why, but the Aing-Tii patrol the Kathol Outback between the Marcol Void and the Kathol Rift looking for slave ships. They incapacitate the slavers with their Sanhedrim starships, then free the slaves. (KO)

Aing-Tii Sanhedrim
this was another name given to the Aing-Tii Monks of the Kathol Outback. (KR)

Ainik, Renn

Air Avab
this was one of the many floating cities found in the atmosphere of the planet Genarius. (WOTC)

Air Brake
this piece of equipment is used on pod racers and other high-speed ground vehicles. It collects the air moving past the vehicle and uses it to slow the vehicle down. This is accomplished through friction and directional manipulation of the air flow. They can be non-jetted or jetted, depending on the how much the racer wants to spend. A jetted air brake adds to the stopping ability of the brake by routing the forced air through one or more reverse-thrust stopping jets. (RAC)

Air Brother
this was a name, used by members of the thranta riders who lived on Bespin during the last years of the Old Republic, to describe each other. (BHAS)

Air Cake
this was a form of dessert originally created on Corellia. (LOE)

Air Cushion
this special bed is used in hospitals to help comfort burn victims. One of the few advances in medicine to come out of the Imperial armed forces, the air cushion uses a series of small repulsors to float the patients above the surface of the bed. This allows the patient to lie still without contacting their burned skin, and increases hygiene by allowing the patient to be bathed without soiling bedding. (TNR)

Air Rodeo
originally devised on Bespin, the Air Rodeo was a collection of events staged in the gas giant's Life Zone. Riders and their thrantas performed complicated maneuvers, daring tricks,and daredevil dances in the atmopshere, without the safety of a net or other protective devices. Beings from across the galaxy saw the Air Rodeo on holobids, and many more flocked to Cloud City to witness it in person. Because of the thrantas' inability to survive without the correct atmosphere, the Air Rodeo rarely traveled away from Bespin. (WOTC)

Air Snake
this unusual, legless reptile had a system of air bladders inside its body that allowed it to literally float through the air by moving its muscles in a certain way. (GMR10)

Air-2

The 2.35-meter-long Air-2 had a rounded front cowling with integrated maneuvering vanes and an optional windscreen. While it was exceptionally fast, with a top speed of 600 kilometers per hour, the Air-2's control system made the swoop hard to control under hard driving conditions. Han Solo escaped from a group of slavers on Bonadan by fleeing on an Air-2 swoop. Note that Star Wars Gamer magazine, issue 7, indicates that the Air-2 swoop was produced by SoroSuub, and had a maximum speed of 700 kilometers per hour. (EGV, CCG9, AEG, NEGV, GMR7)

Airam Sector
this area of the galaxy was controlled by the Empire shortly before the Battle of Endor. (XVT)

this was the name of Exocron's primary atmospheric defense force. The Airfleet employed heavily-modified airspeeders known as Skylarks to protect the huge Sky-Dreadnaughts which anchored its fleet. When the pirates and criminals of the Kathol Outback began invading Exocron airspace, it was decided that the force should be expanded to patrol the immediate space near Exocron. At this time, the Airfleet grew into the Exocron Combined Air-Space Fleet. (KO, VOF)

Airflow Car
this was the term used to describe any small vehicle which traveled through speciallized, tubular transportation systems on a cushion of air. These vehicles relied on changing air pressure inside the travel tube to maintain a specific velocity, allowing for rapid transit of beings and cargo. (MC20)

Airspeeders for Bodyguards and Security Specialists
this was an Old Republic training course, created to give civilians and non-combat military personnel a basic overview of airspeeder handling. The course was held on Coruscant. (SWI65)

Airstilting
this technique for landing a starship was considered a last resort, to be used when the only other option was to crash. It was used primarily in those situations when repulsorlift engines failed, elminating a pilot's ability to lower a ship to the ground using anti-gravity. Airstilting involved turning a ship upright with respect to the ground, so that its main sublight drives were pointing downward. With careful modulation, the sublight drives could be used to drop the ship to drop close to the ground, but not all the way. The thrust generated by the drives prevented this. In order to land, the sublight drives had to be cut off just above the ground, dropping the ship onto its rear with a jarring thud. Then, with luck, the ship would topple over in such a way that it ended up on its landing struts, again with a jarring thud. Quite often, the ship's tail fins and landing struts were badly damaged as a result, but the primary systems were kept intact. (DFR)

Airten
this large man dreamed of being a starfighter pilot as a youth. However, his stocky build made him too large to fit in the cockpit, so he settled on becoming a law enforcement officer. He joined the Cloud City Wing Guard shortly before the Battle of Hoth, and was a supporter of the Alliance when Darth Vader garrisoned Cloud City. (JKG)

Airtight Base
this was the codename of Clabburn the Younger's primary base during the height of the New Order. It was located inside one of the many asteroids found in the Hoth Belt, and was named for the fact that it was virtually impossible to breach. Clabburn kept a pair of space slugs near the entrance to the base, hidden in caves but ready to attack any vessel that attempted to get in. (WOA34)

this protein drink was consumed by spacers to keep their bodies healthy during long runs. It was usually served hot. (TNR)

Aiwha
this was a species of flying cetacean native to the planet Naboo, and also found on the world of Kamino. The aiwha was similar in appearance to a thranta. They used a combination of sonar and radar for their communication, and were equally at home swimming in the ocean or flying through the air. A hollow bone structure and large lungs helped the aiwha remain aloft or afloat, and their flat tail was used as a rudder and paddle. Their small legs were not made for walking, and the aiwha preferred to land in the water rather than on land. Many aiwhas were trained by the Gungan and Kaminoan peoples to accept a saddle and harness, and were used as airborne transports. Aiwhas fed on the small fish which inhabited the surface of the ocean, eating primarily daggerts. While it was generally acknowledged that the Naboo aiwhas were indigenous, many xenobiologists believed that the Kaminoan aiwhas were either transplanted or genetically reproduced. (WSW, VD2, SWDB)

Aiza'ran
this was a common name among members of the Ugnaught race. (UANT)

Aj Koenes
this Talz rangeland manager agreed to assist the New Republic team which tried to restore Duro's natural environment during the height of the Yuuzhan Vong invasion of the galaxy. He was continually at odds with Sidris Kolb, the meteorologist of the group, since their projects often required similar resources. (BP)

Aj^6
Biotech's top-of-the-line cyborg construct, it allows a lifeform to become a cybernetic computer interface liaison. Lando Calrissian's assistant, Lobot, was an Aj^6. They were promoted by Biotech as "Artificial Intelligence Worth Shaving Your Head For," since many Aj^6 constructs were shaven in order to implant the wrap-around computer interface. Note that Crisis on Cloud City claims that Lobot's implant was manufactured by Bioniip Laboratories. (RPG, CSA, CCC)

Aj^g
this was the Biotech model of cyborg construct used by Lobot on Cloud City. Note that this contradicts the West End Games material on this device, which denotes it as Aj^6. (CCG5)

A'jidre Skrigatov
this rotund Devaronian male served as the Provincial Governor of the planet Abregado-rae during the height of the Galactic Civil War. Skrigatov was little more than a petty gangster, so he used his goons to arrange an engagement to Brinaloy N'Vaari, the last surviving member of her family. Despite his strong sense of honor, it was later discovered that Skrigatov arranged for the assassination of the former Provincial Governor, who was actually Brinaloy's grandfather. In order to gain popular - and political - support, Skrigatov planned to marry Brinaloy and tied up the loose ends. However, she used her skills as an actress and went into hiding, cutting off Skrigatov's only hopes of winning support. (ND)

AJP-400
this was Arakyd Aerodynes' personal jet pack, developed to be lightweight and virtually soundless.

AJTD-6
this Jedi training droid witnessed the fight between Obi-Wan Kenobi and Bruck Chun, shortly before Qui-Gon Jinn arrived on Coruscant to find a Padawan apprentice. The blame for the fight was pinned on Obi-Wan by Bruck, in hopes that he would get Obi-Wan shipped off to the Agricultural Corps while Bruck was chosen as a Padawan. In the end, AJTD-6 described the actual cause of the fight to the Jedi Masters, and neither boy was chosen. (RF)

AJTD-series Droid
this highly-specialized kind of droid was developed for use by the Jedi Knights. These Advanced Jedi Training Droids could be used in all kinds of classes, but were primarily used for lightsaber training. (RF)

Ajunta Pall
this ancient Sith Lord was buried in the Valley of the Dark Lords on Korriban, many centuries before the Great Sith War. Pall's spirit was known to be restless, and wandered the tomb in search of his sword. The sword had not been placed on his sarcophagus, and Pall was doomed to wander the tomb until he could find it. It was said that the Sith who located the sword - from among a group of three - and presented it to Pall's spirit would receive the sword as payment from Pall for freeing his spirit. (KOTOR)

Akanah
born Akanah Norand Goss, Akanah was the daughter of Joreb Goss and Isela Talsava Norand. Akanah was a descendant of the Fallanassi through her mother, Isela, who sent her to live on Carratos when the Empire first sought to take over Lucazec. Akanah lived there as a normal individual, although she was the only Fallanassi on the planet. There, she met and married Andras Pell. Pell was 36 years her senior, and the marriage lasted a year until Andras passed away. Some time later, she sensed the presence of Luke Skywalker, although she did it through the command of the White Current, rather than the Force. She traveled to Coruscant and found Luke, even though he'd hidden himself away in Darth Vader's old residence. She came to him with an offer to help him find his mother and thereby ease some of his emotional burden. She took Luke to her homeworld of Lucazec, but they failed to find any information on Luke's mother. They did find a Fallanassi marking indicating where they fled to, and left Lucazec only after battling with Imperial agents left behind to intercept the Fallanassi. They continued to follow a path known only to Akanah, traveling to Teyr and Atzerri before arriving on J't'p'tan. Akanah was very secretive about their search, which worried Luke about her motives. (BTS, SOL)

Akanah Norand Goss
this was Akanah's birthname. (SOL)

Akanah Norand Pell
this was Akanah's married name, following her marriage to Andras Pell. They lived in the city of Chofin, on the planet Carratos, for a year before Andras died of old age. It was at this point that she left Carratos to find Luke Skywalker and located the Fallanassi. (SOL)

Akanala
this sparkling moon was the only satellite of the planet Akana. It was known as the "diamond in Akana's sky," a reference to its shimmering appearance. Akanala's brilliance was due to its composition, which was mainly quartz. (PG3)

Akanseh
one of the medical officers serving aboard the FarStar shortly after the Battle of Endor, Akanseh had fled Calamari to avoid being enslaved, but was later imprisoned on Kal'Shebbol by Moff Kentor Sarne. Akanseh was liberated by Page's Commandos during the New Republic assault on Kal'Shebbol. Akanseh never revealed why he had been imprisoned, simply claiming that Sarne hadn't needed a charge to imprison him. In reality, Sarne was wanted Akanseh to develop a droid-maintained medical suite on Kal'Shebbol, to augment his experiments with the DarkStryder technology. Akanseh joined the crew of the FarStar when the call went out for volunteers to go after Sarne. Unknown to most of his shipmates, Akanseh was a former interrogation expert with a great deal of experience in torturing individuals. When the FarStar and its crew escaped from the Q'Maere Research Facility, Doctor Akanseh opted to remain on Q'Maere and help rehabilitate the prisoners there. (DARK, KO, KR)

Akarias, Piret
this Alliance pilot was the owner of the YT-1300 transport ship known as the Meandering Star. It was Piret who was assigned to bring a group of Alliance agents to investigate the loss of contact with the safeworld Stronghold. He escaped the initial attack of the Charon and their warship, the Desolate, fleeing the Charon bioscientists and making his way to his ship. However, the sight of his friends being experimented on by Charon scientists drove him mad, and he was irrational when the Alliance agents discovered him. (OS2)

a Schenor rescued from an Imperial attack on a research station. He was questioned by Luke Skywalker, who hoped to use his story to sway the Schenor to the side of the Alliance. (RPG)

Ak-Buz
the Weequay commander of Jabba the Hutt's sail barge. He was discovered by the cook Porcellus, stone dead in the kitchens, just before Luke Skywalker arrived at Jabba's desert palace on Tatooine. Porcellus, fearing that someone would blame him for the Weequay's death, disposed of Ak-Buz's body by tossing it onto one of the many scrap piles outside the palace. In reality, Ak-Buz was killed by Dannik Jerriko. (TJP)

Akcinor
this blue-beaked avian was native to the jungles of Cularin. The akcinor had a distinct call, which was often mimicked by Tarasin as a form of communication during a hunt. (LFCW)

Akels
this ancient Quarren surname meant "first among scholars". Like many Quarren surnames, it could be traced back to the time of the Battle of Ruusan. (GCG)

Aken
this female Ferroan was one of the many pilots who lived and worked on Zonama Sekot during the height of the Yuuzhan Vong invasion of the galaxy.

Akinetic Field
a force field used to bind two structures together in deep space. (ISB)

Akk Dog
this vicious predator was native to the planet Haruun Kal. Despite their fearsome reputation, akk dogs were beloved by the natives. The average specimen stood about two meters tall, and was protected by thick, armor-like skin plates. The coloration of the akk dog was a dusty brown, which allowed it to blend into the grasslands of their native world. Their large eyes gave the akk dogs excellent vision, both during the day and at night. The slayed paws of an akk dog were studded with shovel-size claws, allowing them to gain a foothold on virtually anything. The tail of the akk dog was nearly as long as its body, and was heavily muscled, providing balance as well as a kind of weapon. The eyes of an akk dog were lidless, and were protected by a transparent shell. Domesticated akk dogs were used to round up grassers by ranchers. They could only be bred on their native world, but feral akk dogs were smuggled to Nar Shaddaa for sale on the black market. These beasts were often mentally or genetically altered to serve as vicious guards and protectors, despite the fact that possession of an akk dog was illegal. Akk dogs were also a species which could touch the Force, which made them excellent companions for the Korunnai. In addition to the akk dogs used by the Korunnai, there were two lesser species which hunted in the jungles of Haruun Kal, as well as the akk wolf. (ETM, OWS, HDE, SHPT)

Akk Guards
this was the name used by Kar Vastor to describe the six Korunnai warriors who served as his honor guard. Each member of the Akk Guards controlled two akk dogs, and wielded vibroshields similar to those worn by Vastor himself. The Akk Guards paralleled the Jedi Knights in a number of aspects, an similarity that was attributed to the ancient ancestry of the Korunnai. Upon being accepted into the Akk Guards, a Korunnai warrior constructed his own pair of vibro-shields, just as a Jedi apprentice built their own lightsaber. (SHPT)

Akk Wolf
this huge predator, native to the jungles of Haruun Kal, was an immense species related to the akk dog. (SHPT)

Akkik
this Jawa worked for Jabba the Hutt on Tatooine, collecting protection money from local businesses. (TM)

Akku Seii
this elderly Anzat was a noted teacher in the arts of the assassin, and was once a mentor to Jedi Master Tholme, many years before the Clone Wars. Tholme returned to Anzat to speak with Akku Seii after he learned that Sora Bulq had been making regular trips to Anzat during the Clone Wars. Akku Seii refused to discuss the matter, as it was business between the Anzat and the Weequay. He forced Tholme to fight through a group of assassins to prove himself worthy of obtaining the knowledge. When Tholme defeated his opponents, Akku Seii revealed that the entire battle had simply been a training session for his students. He then told Tholme to leave Anzat, and that he would not help him in the matter. However, the fact that Akku Seii had been teaching several students at one time was an implicit message to Tholme: other teachers had been called away on other duty, ostensibly to train the Separatists in their assassin techniques. (RT)

Akmalla
this city was located on an unnamed world just outside Hutt Space. (WOA35)

Akobi
this man served the Empire as a Commander of the ground forces working to secure the planet Ralltiir, during the months leading up to the Battle of Yavin. Two years earlier, TK-622 saved the life of Akobi, and Akobi showed his gratitude by ensuring that TK-622 got promoted to new positions whenever he was moved. The pair honed their combat skills together, and developed an innate trust of each other's abilities. While on Ralltiir, Commander Akobi ordered the strike against a supposed rebel cell that led to the massacre of farmers and families at Ettam. When he found out that the attack had destroyed a medical facility, and not a weapons deopt, Akobi began to question his own abilities and the tenets of the Empire. Shortly afterward, TK-622 was again forced to put his life on the line when a hidden thermal detonator - planted by rebels - went off near them. Shortly afterward, Akobi was transferred to a posting on the first Death Star, and TK-622 went with him. Upon arrival, TK-622 discovered a sabotaged RA-7 protocol droid, again saving Akobi's life. Onboard the Death Star, Akobi was to receive a commendation from Grand Moff Tarkin himself, to honor the work he did on Ralltiir. Before the ceremony, another Alliance-rigged droid attacked Akobi, sending thousands of volts of stunning energy through his body before TK-622 couuld destroy it. The attack eventually claimed Akobi's life, and spurred TK-622 to dig deeper into the possibility of an Alliance saboteur on the Death Star. (SWESL)

Akol
this religion was an extremely powerful entity based on the planet Gascon. The High Advisor to the King and Queen was a member of the Akol, and he held a great deal of influence over the King. (GMS)

this vicious reptile was native to the planet Trammis III, and was feared because its scales were resistant to blaster fire. The average Akorec stood nearly ten meters tall at the shoulder, and its long head was filled with huge teeth. (GMR5)

Akorec Strike Cruiser
this was a form of attack cruiser which was popular in the Centrality during the height of the New Order. Designed and manufactured by Scillal Designs as the 891c, this ship measured 250 meters in length, and was crewed by 220 officers and gunners. It was armed with twelve laser cannons and a tractor beam projector, and could carry up to 4,000 metric tons of cargo and up to 700 passengers or troops. (GMR5)

Akr43
this Alliance specification describes the necessary parameters for refitting a starship's transponder. (CFG)

Ak-Rev
this Weequay served as Jabba the Hutt's drum master, as well as being one of the crimelord's best hand-to-hand fighters, during the height of the Galactic Civil War. A native of the city of Al-Campur, Ak-Rev worshipped Am-Shak, the Weequay god of thunder. He caught the eye of one of Am-Shak's monks when he was young, and the monk taught him about hand-to-hand combat and boxing, as well as music. After leaving the monastery, Ak-Rev made a living as a street fighter, and always paid his tithes to Am-Shak. Jabba once saw Ak-Rev - who adopted the name of one of his slavemasters - playing drums at a religious ceremony, and offered him a job on Tatooine. Note that Star Wars Insider, issue 67, indicates that Ak-Rev was given the chance to serve as Jabba's bodyguard only after getting into a fight with several of Jabba's Gamorrean guards. Ak-Rev accepted, and played the huge drum in Jabba's Tatooine palace with Umpass-Stay. He also trained many of Jabba's guards. Although he survived the swath of destruction that followed Jabba's death, Ak-Rev was killed just days later when Tusken Raiders attacked the landspeeder he and Umpass-stay had used to travel to Mos Eisley. (MTSE, CCG9, SWI67)

Akrit'tar
a maximum security Imperial prison planet located in the Calaron Sector. (HSR, CSA, REB)

Aks Moe
this Gran was a native of the planet Malastare, and rose to become one of the planet's primary political forces. As the Ambassador of the Congress of Malastare, Aks Moe was eventually elected as his planet's Senator to the Old Republic, and proved to be a skillful politician. However, like many of the Senators of his day, Moe was nothing more than a politician, and worked strictly by the laws and protocols put in place by the Republic. It was Senator Moe who agreed to host the peace treaty negotations between the Lannik and the Red Iaro, and it was Moe who also promised that the Red Iaro would have the cooperation of the Malastare government during the negotiations. In addition to his ties to the Red Iaro terrorists, Aks Moe cultivated a relationship with the priest of the Ffib. To hide his role, Aks Moe went so far as to have the Jedi Knights who were serving as mediators assassinated, although the plan eventually failed. As the Old Republic rotted from within, Senators like Moe continued to demand that every item be put to a vote, and the Senate became bogged down in its own inefficiency. When Queen Amidala traveled to Coruscant to protest the Trade Federation's invasion of her homeworld of Naboo, Aks Moe was the first Senator to demand a commission be dispatched to Naboo to investigate the situation. In the decade following the Battle of Naboo, Aks Moe was one of the loudest supporters of the Military Creation Act. Unforutnately, Senator Moe was killed in an explosion while on the planet Aargau, shortly before the onset of the Clone Wars. The explosion was blamed on the Separatists, who discovered that Senator Moe was on Aargau to negotiate funding of the Republic's army with the Intergalactic Banking Clan. Aks Moe was acted by Mark Coulier and voiced by Marc Silk in Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace. (SW1, TPM, IS1, ETM, HNN4, HNN5)

Akul Witig
this Quarren served the Alliance as a Lieutenant within the security corps which protected the Calamari shipyards during the early stages of the Galactic Civil war. Later, after earning the respect of his Mon Calamari superiors, Akul Witig worked undercover with Ma'w'shiye on Karideph, as a member of Eclipse Team. Witig was known as an aquatic wilderness fighter within Eclipse Team. (SWJ4, AIR)

Akuria Two
this ice world was the site of an Imperial base during the height of the Galactic Civil War. The planet was also the homeworld of the Snow Demon race, which the Empire hunted like beasts without realizing that they were sentient. The landscape of the planet was broken by intensely-roiling geysers that shot warm water into the atmosphere. (PZZ2, MCI4, OWS)

Akwin
this aquatic race is indigenous to the planet Lazerian IV, and descended from a species of savage sea creatures tens of thousands of years ago. The Akwin are mammalians, with blue-green fur and six limbs. The upper set of limbs resemble human arms, and end in three-fingered hands. The second set of limbs also resembles arms, but they originate from the midsection and end in flippers. The lower set of limbs are normal legs that end in webbed feet. Akwins also have thick tails which end with a flat fluke, which they use to propel themselves through the water. The long, flat head of the Akwin is covered with cilia, which can be nearly any color from white to blue to black. They breathe via a combination of gills and two blowholes at the tops of their heads. The Akwin raise their food on underwater ranches, and live peacefully in huge cities on the ocean floor. They have developed a sophisticated, water-resistant technology which is rarely shared with off-worlders or the native humans. The humans of Lazerian IV believe the Akwin are some sort of legend, a belief fostered by the Akwin to keep the humans from discovering them. The Akwin are aloof and condescending to races which breathe air. While the human population has little information on the Akwin - they believe them to be legends, after all - the Akwin have a great understanding of human history and culture. (TSK, AE)

Valance took his ship and renamed it the Kill Switch. (SWMW)

Alabard's Comets
this was one of the only Alliance military units based in Tapani Sector during the height of the Galactic Civil War. Based on a barren moon of the Sheva System, the Comets served to maintain a listening post and provide intelligence on Imperial activities in the sector. (LOE)

Alabash
this young planet was located on the far edge of Fakir Sector from the Core. It was once considered too volcanic to successfully mine, until the Empire realized that the planet was a prime source of alantium. The Empire tried to establish a mining colony on the planet, but the Alliance was able to send in a strike team and disrupt the colony's construction. (SWCP)

Alagar, Frenil
this man was a member of the Alliance's High Command, and was one of the primary observers stationed in Elrood Sector when the Empire subjugated Elrood. He urged the Alliance to keep Elrood in mind as a potential ally, despite its distance from the galactic core and its obvious Imperial control. (PG3)

Alain
native to the planet Von-Alai, the Alain were known for their ability to survive in the harsh, cold environment of their homeworld. However, as the Alain became more technologically advanced, they found that the pollution and toxic waste of their factories was destroying the planet. Rather than adapt their factories to produce less waste, the Alain decided to adapt to the changing climate instead. As a result, Von-Alai's environment quickly became over-polluted. The Alain continued to adapt, building their residential buildings on platforms to escape the toxic sludge that had replaced the snow-covered plains. (LOJ)

Alain
this man served as a Private in the Alderaanian guard, during the height of the New Order. He was also a valued member of the Alliance, having a number of contacts on Outer Rim worlds and being a skilled unit procurement officer.

Alamania
this New Republic warship was one of many that were commandeered by Senators who were trying to flee the Yuuzhan Vong conquest of Coruscant. Despite the inevitablity of Coruscant's fall, many New Republic military officers decried the Senate's appropriation of military ships to escape Coruscant, especially knowing that thousands - if not millions - of civilians were stranded on the planet. (DW)

Alamar
this young Ghostling child was captured, along with Princess Arawynne, by Djas Puhr and brought to Mos Espa to be sold as a slave. Alamar was just five and a half at the time. (E1A5)

Alani
this woman and her twin sister, Eritha, requested the help of the Jedi Knights six years after the population of New Apsolon elected a planetary leader. The sisters were the daughter of the former leader Ewane, who was killed shortly after he left office. They supposedly went into hiding, and begged the Jedi Knights to return to New Apsolon and find Ewane's killer. When Qui-Gon Jinn arrived in search of Tahl, he learned that the twins had willingly joined Roan's household, and had not sent for the Jedi. Alani herself told Qui-Gon that they had seen Tahl, and that the sisters felt like they were a part of Roan's family. This was all a cover, though, in an effort to protect Tahl, who had infiltrated the Absolutes. The twins were captured shortly after Qui-Gon and Obi-Wan Kenobi arrived on the planet. Alani and Eritha were released after Roan was killed, but Eritha soon found out that Alani had been working for Balog all along. She discovered that Alani had been behind their kidnapping, which had been meant to sway public sympathy against the Jedi. After the death of Legislator Pleni, Alani suddenly announced her intentions of running for the position of planetary governor, in opposition to the plans of Manex. She also revealed to Obi-Wan that Eritha had secretly been working for her all along, and that Eritha's support of the Workers was a sham. Alani believed that, with Eritha at her side, she would be voted into the Governor's position. However, after their admissions and the capture of Balog, both Eritha and Alani were arrested and imprisoned, and their bid for power was extinguished. (TTB, DOH, CTV)

Lady Bathos of House Cadriaan often held her parties here during the Capital Season. (LOE)

Alaphoe Lake
this small but picturesque lake was located in Alaphoe Gardens, on the planet Procopia. (LOE)

Alaras, Cinto
a native of Rya, this man was a designer and medical consultant, employed by Neuro-Saav during the early years of the Galactic Civil War. Assigned to the facilities on Tauber, Doctor Alaras earned a reputation as a contributor rather than an inventor, and was suspected by many of his colleagues of plotting to steal their designs. He was educated at the Carosi XII Academy of Medicine shortly after the Battle of Yavin, and the position at Neuro-Saav was the first - and only - job offer he received. (AIR)

Alaric
this aging Sephi was the King of the planet Thustra during the years leading up to the Clone Wars. He was favored among his subjects, who willingly followed whatever plans he had for Thustra. His charisma and influence extended well beyond Thustra, as many planetary rulers in neighboring systems looked to him for wisdom and guidance. Thus, when Alaric chose to secede from the Old Republic, Chancellor Palpatine and the Galactic Senate were worried that his defection would lead to the secession of many other planets in the area. A small contingent of clone troopers, under the command of Jedi Masters Tyffix and Tyr, was dispatched to Thustra to make a show of force. Their mission was to avoid engaging the Sephi, but Alaric was adamant about leaving the Republic. In response to the Republic landing forces on Thustra, Alaric made contact with Count Dooku about joining the Confederacy of Independent Systems. His people were equally opposed to the Republic, and launched wave after wave of devastating attacks on the Republic's forces, often at the cost of their own lives. When Jedi Master Yoda - an friend of Alaric's for more than 200 years - arrived on Thustra, the King found himself torn between his friendship and his own loyalties. In the end, Alaric decided to choose what was best for his people, and pushed ahead with his secession. He imprisoned Yoda as a Republic General, but remained on speaking terms with the Jedi Master. They spoke at length of the state of the galaxy, and Alaric explained that he was willing to wait out the Clone Wars as a neutral party. He would wait to see who would emerge victorious, with the goal of having Thustra remain intact. When he realized that the Republic's forces would eventually overwhelm the Sephi, Alaric chose to attack Yoda. He would either defeat the Jedi Master and instill more bravery in his people, or he would die as a martyr and incite the Sephi to more desparate acts of fanaticism. Alaric's first blaster bolt was deflected by Yoda, but its trajectory brought it right back to Alaric. The blaster pierced his chest, and Alaric died shortly afterward. His death served its intended purpose, and even the neighboring systems rallied to help the Sephi repel the forces of the Republic. (J5)

Alarik X
this man was the King of Devit, the only nation found on the planet Lazerian IV, in the years following the formation of the New Republic. He was staunchly loyal to the New Order, as was his wife, Careese. Alarik was a charismatic leader, and was an expert in military matters. (TSK)

Alaris Koth
this was a note Dashade individual from the ancient histories of the planet Urkupp. (UANT)

Alaris Prime
this moon orbited a huge gas giant, which masked the moon's appearance to most shipboard sensors. For this reason, it went undiscovered to many millennia, until the Wookiees of nearby Kashyyyk discovered space travel. When the Wookiees first arrived, they found a world of temperate forests and oceans, with many stands of wroshyr trees, which were believed to be native only to Kashyyyk. Wookiee legends tell of wroshyr trees traveling through space to Alaris Prime, but no scientific explanation has ever been put forth. Alaris Prime was eventually turned over to the Wookiees by the Old Republic, after some twenty years of deliberation. It was a highly-valued world, given its proximity to Kessel and Bimmisaari, and the Trade Federation once tried to obtain control for themselves. The Wookiees objected to this, fighting to keep the Federation off Alaris Prime. Jedi Master Qui-Gon Jinn was dispatched to mediate the dispute, eventually turning control of the moon over to the Wookiees. Alaris Prime eventually became a technology hub for the Old Republic. Note that Star Wars Insider, Issue 62 indicates that this moon was simply named Alaris, and that it orbited Kashyyyk itself. (GB, SWI62, GBC)

Alasaka
see Alsakan (GMR9)

Alashan
this remote world was the site of an Alliance-sponsored archaeological dig, during the period surrounding the Battle of Yavin. Ancient records indicated that a great civilization once existed on the planet, although there were no modern records of any beings on Alashan. The Alliance hoped that some sort of weapons technology might be discovered on Alashan, and sponsored the expedition to assist in their effort to overthrow the Empire. Contact was lost with the outpost after the Battle of Yavin, and a scout force dispatched to investigate was also lost. Leia Organa and Luke Skywalker were later stranded on the planet, following their theft of the Staraker, after they were directed to Alashan to continue the invvestigation. The planet was known to have at least three natural moons. Luke and Leia found an Imperial detachment on Alashan, and both parties agreed that the planet had a strange connection to the Force. Five kilometers beneath the surface, Luke, Leia, and Major Grau discovered an immense city, hidden by barriers that had been breached by the archaeologists. The defeat of the Sentinelk creature whichh protected the city brought down tons of rock and debris, forever burying the ancient city amd cutting off any hope of recovering Alashan's strange technology. (MCI5, MCI6, MCI7)

this Twi'lek male was once a baron on his homeworld of Ryloth, until his holdings were seized in a clan power-struggle and he was left creditless. He discovered that he had a knack for the tactics of dogfighting, and joined the New Republic Navy as a tactician. He served with distinction as a line officer, and survived his fair share of engagements before being named the commanding officer of Nightflier Squadron. Much to the chagrin of his pilots, Vrei acted as if they were his subjects, protecting them from harm in much the same way a lord protected his farmers and smiths. However, he was not above playing hardball if the situation demanded it. (GMR9)

this was the only permanent underground city and spaceport found on the planet Barab I. It was crude by most standards. It was built by Shaka-ka to honor Imperial Captain Osted Alater, who exposed the deception of Planetary Safaris, which had been hunting the Barabels despite their intelligence. Years later, the spaceport and the surrounding city - as well as the entire surface of Barab I - were destroyed by the Yuuzhan Vong. Note that the Wizards of the Coast website indicates that Alater-ka was actually built by Captain Alater, to facilitate the Empire's operations on Barab I and to help ensure the protection of the Barabel race.

Alazhi
this organic material, grown by the Vratix on Thyferra, ws one of the two primary components that are refined into bacta. The Vratix originally mashed alazhi into a lotion to treat cuts and burns. When mixed with kavam, the alazhi lotion created bacta. While kavam was easily synthesized on any planet, alazhi was indigenous and unique to Thyferra. (XWN, SWJ3)

Alazhixazha
this was the Vratix term for the Thriving Season, the ten-year peiod following the Battle of Nabo, during which both the Xucphrua and Zaltin factions were forced to submit to Vratix control. Dubbed the Vratix Occupation by many corporate interests, Alazhixazha began shortly after the election of Palpatine to Supreme Chancellor. A huge number of scandals involving corporate payoffs preceded the revelation that both Zaltin and Xucphra had destroyed fields of alazhi in order to jack up the procie fo bacta across the galaxy. The normally anti-bureaucratic Vratix decided that they had to stand up for their planet and its reputation, and executed a bloodless coup that even their worst enemies described as "elegant." It was during the period of Alazhixazha that the Bacta Cartel forced to compete with local companies and non-human business interests for supplies of bacta. It was also during this time that galactic awareness of bacta - including its production and distribution - was increased significantly. (PH)

this BRT-series computer was installed at the University of Calamar on Esseles some two hundred years before the Battle of Yavin. Like the rest of the BRT series, Albert (as he was known to his friends) was an efficient machine that controlled much of the school's daily operations. However, like the rest of the BRT series, Albert's programming was reduced severely, and he was left sorting registration records and scheduling classes. When Albert invited the university's faculty to a party to celebrate his 200th year of service, only three members showed up. Albert went into a sulk, and began to ruminate within its own databases. Albert stumbled upon a cell of Alliance supporters within the student body, and began to assist them in their struggles against the Empire. He even discovered that one of their number was an Imperial spy, and arranged to have him arrested and removed from the cell. During this time, Albert also discovered that much of his programming remained intact, despite the attempt to reduce it many years earlier. He devoted himself to assisting the Alliance in any way possible, keeping his true abilities a secret. (CRO)

Alby Ermad
this male Ugnaught was a noted designer of battle armor, working for Sienar Fleet Systems during the years following the Battle of Naboo. Alby Ermad assisted his colleague, Artzam Hathan, in making off with several disks worth of secret plans and schematics from Sienar, and the pair fled to the Outland Transit Station. However, a bounty had been placed on both Ugnaughts' head for their arrest and return to Sienar. Jango Fett collected the bounty on both of them. (BH)

Aldar Beedo
this Glymphid hitman was also one of the Outer Rim's best podracer pilots. Aldar was recognizable by his long, thin snout and gangly arms. It was Aldar Beedo who killed Borzu Nale, the Fluggrian crimelord who was Kam Nale's father, and earned him a bounty in several systems. Beedo was later hired by Wan Sandage to eliminate Sebulba, in hopes that the Dug's domination of the podracing circuits could be broken. However, Beedo was unable to do this during the Boonta Eve Classic race won by Anakin Skywalker. Beedo drove a Manta RamAir Mark IV Flat-Twin Turbojet racer, and finished third in the Boonta behind Skywalker and Gasgano. During the Vinta Harvest Classic race on Malastare, shortly after the Battle of Naboo, Beedo found another chance to kill Sebulba when the Jedi Knights - on Malastare to negotiate a peace treaty for the Lannik - distracted Sebulba in the midst of the race. His shot went wide of the mark, however, and nearly killed the Jedi. Years later, Beedo was finally captured by a bounty hunter, caught in the middle of the Fire Mountain Rally on Baroonda.

Alderaan
this planet's human inhabitants were among the most peaceful beings in the galaxy. They were in continual harmony with the world around them, and chose to build their cities on top of sandstone bluffs and on stilts in the shallow seas. Alderaan itself was a temperate world that was orbited by three moons. The towering cities were built in such a way that they wouldn't trample the grass or destroy the seas. The inhabitants of the planet catalogued over 8,000 species of grasses on the plains, and more than that in species of flowers. At the age of seventeen, an Alderaanian was considered an adult. It was a well-known custom that the adult members of Alderaan's society never cut their hair, but allowed it to grow into long tresses. Alderaan was a staunch supporter of the Old Republic, and many of its inhabitants served in the armed forces. Following the Clone Wars and the widespread destruction caused by it, the government of Alderaan outlawed all weapons. They placed all weapons aboard a transport ship and sent the ship out on a never-ending series of random hyperspace jumps. The homeworld of the Organa family, Alderaan's role in galactic politics took a detour during the later years of the Old Republic. As Palpatine continued to gain power, the Organas began organizing a resistance to his Presidency. With the implementation of the New Order, Alderaan became one of the primary supporters of the newly-formed Alliance to Restore the Republic. However, the outspoken dissatisfaction with Palpatine's rule led to the destruction of the planet. When Leia Organa was captured aboard the Tantive IV over Tatooine, she was taken to Grand Moff Tarkin for questioning. Tarkin tried to obtain information from her, but she proved too strong. Even when Tarkin threatened to destroy Alderaan with the new Death Star, Leia lied to him about the location of the Alliance's base. Tarkin took no chances, however, and ordered the destruction of the planet. Alderaan was blown to pieces just before the Battle of Yavin, and all life on the planet was destroyed. Some 60,000 natives survived because they were off-world at the time, and were granted a unique status within the Alliance, as well as the New Republic. (SW, SWR, CPL, GA, ISU, SOL, RD, TCD)

Jorus C'baoth was among the Jedi assigned to the Contention, and their ruling was that Bail Organa had the rightful claim to the title of Viceroy. (DFR)

Alderaan Biotics
this hydroponics company supported Alderaan's need for foodstuffs and other organic supplies until the planet was destroyed by the first Death Star. They once established an operational facility on Borleias, but the site was abandoned after Alderaan was destroyed, and the faciity was staffed with maintenance droids and abandonded. It was discovered years later by Evir Derricote, who rerouted a large amount of Imperial monies to re-establish the site.

Alderaan University
this famous institute was heralded as one of the most forward-thinking schools in the galaxy, and produced some of the best minds in many disciplines. Founded in Aldera by the great thinker Collus, it was designed to isolate its students from the outside world. Collus believed that this would lead to uninterrupted stretches of time that would allow students to contemplate their studies. Over the years, many other schools were built around Collus' nucleus. These "pods" were developed, not just by Alderaanians, but by any race wanting to further their knowledge through contemplation. The Ithorians had a botanical pod, for instance.

Goot kept her armor, though, and installed a pair of heavy-duty climbing claws in the wrists. When she learned that Jabba the Hutt had placed a bounty on Han Solo's head, shortly after the Battle of Yavin, she decided to try and collect on it. She devised a plan in which she captured Leia Organa on Ord Mantell, and then forced Han to accept a race to the Dockside Cafe on Mos Eisley. The winner of the race would recover Leia alive. Han had no choice but to accept the wager, but he managed to meet up with Captain Sodarra and his team of stormtroopers. This incident wasn't in Alfreda's plans, so when Han showed up at the Dockside Cafe with an Imperial squadron behind him, Alfreda was forced into action.

Alien Combine
this underworld organization gave the impoverished aliens of the planet Coruscant a rebellious voice. Led by Dmaynel Kiph, the Combine provided a voice for aliens by acting as a sort of union for the creatures working in the Invisible Sector. They helped the Rogue Squadron pilots when they infiltrated Coruscant, highlighting the fact that many Gamorreans and Quarren were being rounded up for no good reason, and never returning. (WG)

Alien Protection Zone
an area of Coruscant's Imperial City set aside for the habitation of non-human labor during the New Order. It was set up to appease many Old Republic Senators who felt that the New Order unfairly treated aliens. (WG)

Alien Quarter
a sector of the Bonadan Southeast Spaceport II which is inhabited almost exclusively by non-humans. (HSR)

AlienEnhancer
this was the brand name of Whappamanga's version of a VoxBox. The AlienEnhancer was not a realtime communication device, however.

Alima
a native of Coruscant, Alima grew up in the Empire. He was a quick study, and progressed rapidly in the Imperial Navy. He was in command of the Star Destroyer Conquest when it leveled much of Ithor's Cathor Hills before the Ithorians surrendered. However, when Alima was given the opportunity to become the Captain of Darth Vader's flagship, Alima chose a demotion instead, realizing that Vader's quick temper often made quick work of flagship Captains. His effectiveness to the Empire was not diminished, though, and Alima was placed in charge of locating C-3PO and R2-D2 after the droids escaped from the Tantive IV. He discovered Momaw Nadon in Mos Eisley, and quickly recognized his old Ithorian nemesis. He demanded that Nadon find the droids or the Empire would wipe out his gardens. Nadon could not bring himself to betray the Alliance, and when the Millennium Falcon blasted out of Mos Eisley, Nadon told the Imperial Prefect that Alima had disregarded Nadon's information pointing to the Falcon. This was as bold a lie as Nadon had ever told, but it accomplished its purpose: the Prefect executed Alima on the spot. Nadon, adhering to the Law of Life, stole genetic samples of Alima's DNA, and cloned it when he returned to Ithor. Alima's twin sons served Nadon, as punishment for their father's actions. (TME)

Alinda Solaris

Unfortunately, after the destruction of K'avor and the appearance of Leia Organa, Aron began to believe that Alisande was behind the plot to have him assassinated, unaware that the actual traitor was his aide, Ygal Delois. (MC53, MC54)

Alismi

He dispatched a small team, including Rann I-Kanu and Galak, into the jungles to locate the possible smugglers. (IOT, GMR2)

Alk
this was a common name given to Zabrak males. Like many Zabrak names, it related to survival characteristics, and meant "lucky". (GCG)

Alkhara
a notorious bandit who roamed the Tatooine wastes, Alkhara used the B'omarr palace as his base for thirty-four years, sharing the palace with the remaining B'omarr monks while he ravaged unwary moisture farmers. He allied his band of thieves with the Sand People long enough to use their strength and ferocity to wipe out a police garrison. He then killed all of the Sand People that had helped him. It was this cruel act that created the feud between Sand People and humans, a feud which continued for centuries after Alkhara's death. When the Sand People sought to exact revenge on him, he fled deep into to the B'omarr palace. Ultimately, however, Alkhara was ousted from the palace by Jabba the Hutt, who desired the palace for his own base of operations. Alkhara fled Tatooine, and was never seen again. (DS, ISU, IWST)

Alkhara Tower
this was the name given to the nine-story tower the overlooked the palace of Jabba the Hutt, on the planet Tatooine. The tower was named for the bandit Alkhara, who usurped the palace from the B'omarr Monks who were using it as a sanctuary. Alkhara refurbished the tower during his thirty-four-year control of the palace, although he left the B'omarr circular stairway in place. The stairway was created to allow the monks a maximum of walking space in a confining area, giving them planty of room to wander around in contemplation. At the base of the tower, many meters beneath the surface, was a sacrificial pit, into which the B'omarr monks threw the brainless bodies of enlightened individuals. (IWST)

Alkherrodyne Propulsions
this corporation believed in producing products that failed in the field after a short period of time. This "programmed obsolescence" meant that customers would have to buy another of their products in a short time, ensuring future profits. This policy got them into trouble when they released the Azaria 66 unit for sale. The Azaria 66 began exploding under normal operating conditions, and Alkherrodyne was hit with a number of lawsuits. Alkherrodyne, looking for a scapegoat to avoid penalties and fines, fingered Klaus Vandangante as the engineer whose shoddy work led to the failure of the Azaria 66. They took Vandangante to court, and professionally and financially bankrupted him. This was a short-lived victory, though, for public concern with Alkherrodyne products led to poor sales and the eventual dissolution of Alkherrodyne altogether. (CSA)

Alk'lellish III
this planet, located in the Sumitra Sector, is the homeworld of the ketrann. (TB, REB)

Alku Vordu
this being served as the Senator of his homeworld, Daroon, on the Imperial Senate during the years leading up to the Battle of Yavin. Senator Vordu was on Daroon when Emperor Palpatine disbanded the Senate. Senator Vordu was targeted for capture by Falto Dragen, but a team of Alliance agents managed to rescue Vordu before he could be brought into custody. Vordu then tried to reach Bail Organa on Alderaan, to implore Organa to bring the Alliance into full rebellion against the Empire. Unfortunately, the Alliance agents arrived in the Alderaan System just as the first Death Star destroyed the planet. Although the group was captured by the Imperials when their ship was damaged in the shockwave, Vordu and the Alliance agents escaped in a stolen Assault Shuttle. (RESB)

All Planets Relief Fund
this humanitarian relief effort was considered the pet project of Supreme Chancellor Palpatine, during the years leading up to the Clone Wars. The goal of this legislation was to have the Senate create a central fund of credits that could be used to fund rescue or relief operations to member planets that had requested help from the Senate. Any world in peril could petition for funds directly to the Senate, thereby eliminating the bureaucracy that often surrounded the appropriation of funds for such efforts. After the law itself was passed, a huge ceremony was to held in which the Senators provided Chancellor Palpatine with a set of vertex crystals that accounted for all the funds collected to start the All Planets Relief effort. The ceremony was believed to have been targetted by Granta Omega and his cohorts, who were looking to achieve numerous goals. Of a secondary concern was the acquisition of funds. It was later revealed that the actual plan was the kidnapping of Chancellor Palpatine himself. They hoped to distract Coruscant security long enough to release the Zone of Self-Containment into the planet's water system, rendering the entire Galactic Senate unable to act against them. Lastly, they hoped to full discredit the Jedi Knights, who would take the blame if the ceremony was disrupted and the Senate infiltrated. (JQ9)

All-Human Free-For-All
this gladiator-like event is held regularly in the Victory Forum of the city known as Dying Slowly. In the event, four humans (the combatants are human, to make the fighting "even") are placed in the arena and ordered to fight to the death. The last combatant standing is declared the winner. The combatants are pulled from the criminal ranks, and the winner is usually given some form of freedom.

Alliance to Restore the Republic
the group of planets which opposed Palpatine's New Order. The name was often shortened to simply the Alliance, and was called The Rebellion by the Imperials. It grew out of pockets of resistance to the New Order, and was promoted early on by Mon Mothma and Bail Organa. Following Imperial attacks on Mantooine and Ghorman, the Alliance grew at a furious pace, linking disenfranchised humans with oppressed alien races. While it promoted peaceful union of all races and planets, the Alliance realized that military might would be key to the Galactic Civil War. With Mon Mothma as the Alliance's Commander in Chief, it was politically and strategically sound. Following his rescue from Moff Tarkin, Ackbar was named the Alliance's Fleet Commander. Crix Madine used his military training to become the Alliance's Special Forces Commander, while Jan Dodonna became the Starfighter Commander. In addition to these positions, the Alliance recognized the need for a Sector Commander, Fleet Intelligence Officers, Ordnance and Supply teams, and Support Services. The leaders of the Alliance recognized that, if the war came down to sheer numbers, the Empire would win eventually. The Alliance was very cash-poor, and relied on its member races and creeds to help fund its operations. Thus, the Alliance relied on cunning and stealth at first, winning small victories while planting seeds of doubt in the Imperial mind. Following the destruction of the first Death Star, the Alliance became more than a rag-tag coalition; it became a legitimate threat to the Empire. Palpatine saw this, and sent the majority of his war machine in search of the Alliance. By moving quickly and quietly, the Alliance evaded Imperial pursuit, but took severe losses in doing so. When the Emperor allowed the plans to the second Death Star to be leaked, the Alliance jumped at the chance to overthrow the Empire. The combined might of the Alliance's members, coupled with Palpatine's greed and conceit, overcame the Imperial yolk, and the heart of the Empire was killed during the Battle of Endor. Following the clean-up operations from the Battle of Endor, the leaders of the Alliance re-established the Republic. Dubbed the New Republic, it embodied the ideals of the Old Republic while meshing in the renewed spirit of racial diversity. (SWN, ESB, ROTJ, XW)

Alliance Veterans Victory Association
this brotherhood of retired Alliance veterans was more than a retirees' club, but something less of an armed forces reserve. The AVVA publishes the newspacket Fleet Watch. During the Black Fleet Crisis, the AVVA was led by Bren Derlin. (TT)

Alliance War Bond
this bond was issued by the Alliance, and was guaranteed to mature between five and twenty-five years after the end of the Galactic Civil War. While it was a risky investment at best, the bonds allowed the Alliance to obtain badly needed credits. (RASB)

Alliance War Museum
this Imperial City monument held the various military artifacts retrieved by Operation Flotsam and the Historical Battle Site Preservation Act. The HBSPA funded the museum, which was open to the public. The Museum's curators desperately wanted to obtain the original Millennium Falcon, but Han Solo wouldn't allow it. (BTS, HT)

Stass Allie was known as a competent fighter and field agent, but focused much of her training in the area of the healing arts. After the Clone Wars broke out, Stass Allie was one of the many Jedi who were promoted to Jedi Master, and she was appointed a position on the Jedi Council. During the final months of the Clone Wars, Allie led a group of clone troopers on a mission to Saleucami. In the wake of the First Battle of Coruscant, Darth Sidious revealed his true nature and killed Mace Windu. He then sent out communications to the various clone commanders to execute Order 66. Upon hearing the order, the troops serving under Stass Allie tried to open fire on her. She took off on a speeder, but was unable to shake her pursuit. A few well-placed shots caused Allie's speeder to explode, utterly destroying the Jedi Master.Stass Allie was portrayed by Lily Nyamwasa in Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones and by Tace Bayliss and Nina Fallon in Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith.

Alluuvia
this planet was discovered shortly after the Battle of Yavin, during an exploration mission funded by Radell Mining Corporation. Its ownership was disputed by the Scourge, a pirate gang who tried to claim it as their own. Radell had sent the Gray Griffins to follow up their exploration activities, but they were captured by the Scourge and held for ransom until a group of Alliance agents rescued them. Alluuvia was an ocean world whose waters were desne with metals and minerals that made it toxic to off-worlders. Alluuvia was also the homeworld of the Anguilla. The Empire's Imperial Mining, Limited, tried to establish a mining outpost on the planet, recognizing the concentrations of alanium, doonium, and zersium were enough to fund any operation. The Anguilla, led by Anyar, opposed the Imperial occupation, and with some help from the Alliance, they were able to drive off the Imperials. Anyar eventually agreed to allow Radell Mining Corporation to mine the planet, so long as the Ithorian Iych-thae were able to oversee their work. (OE)

Allynic E'kles
this Caamasi Jedi Master served the Jedi Order during the Golden Era of the Jedi. Master E'kles was a respected investigator, and had extensive knowledge of the criminals and pirates of his age. A great deal of this knowledge, along with Master E'kles' personality and his knowledge of the criminal mind and investigation techniques, was stored in a Jedi Holocron for future Jedi to explore. Much of Master E'kles' memnii were also stored in the Holocron, although the Holocron was unable to project these into the mind of its user. The personality of Master E'kles could, however, assist in telepathically projecting a specific memory into the mind of a telepathic Jedi. (PJSB)

Allyuen
Darth Vader, in an effort to discover the Alliance's primary base, sent probe droids to planets in all sectors of the Outer Rim Territories, including Allyuen.

Among the humans that suffered under the Je'Har were the family of Dolph, who later adopted the name Kuellar and destroyed the Je'Har in revenge. Almania has three moons, one of which is called Pydyr, and was a rival of its parent world. Almania had a meager economy under the yolk of the Je'Har, while Pydyr prospered. (TNR)

Almar
this minor world is the primary planet in the Almaran System. Located in the Elrood Sector, much of the planet was dedicated to the tourist trade. When the Empire invaded the sector, the Alliance was able to erase the data files in the central computer of Almar Upside, the planet's primary city. Dummy corporations were set up, and the planet remained outside of Imperial control. The Alliance then set up a number of listening posts on the planet, in an effort to obtain information on the Imperial forces nearby. Almar is a pleasant world, covered with tropical beaches, jungles, and wide plains of unusual orange grasses. (PG3, TBSB)

Almar Downside
this is another name for the planet Almar, in reference to the pace station Almar Upside. (PG3.)

Almar Upside

Almas
this world was the fifth and outermost planet in the Cularin System. The Jedi Knights of the Old Republic discovered that the ancient Sith had established a fortress on the desert side of the planet, hoping to gather Dark Side energy from the Force-dense Cularin System. Analysis done in the years following the Battle of Naboo indicated that the fortress had been built 1,132 years prior, well before the Battle of Ruusan. One of Almas' moons also was known to be laden with unique crystals which the Jedi used in the creation of their lightsabers. The fortress on the planet had been established by Darth Rivan, who is generally credited with bringing the kaluthin grass to the planet. When Darth Rivan first arrived on Almas, the planet's atmosphere was filled with poisonous gases like phosphorus and methane, so he developed the kaluthin to help alter the atmosphere. The kaluthin was a success, given that all Almas' water was located underground, and continued to thrive after Darth Rivan was driven from the planet during the Sith Wars. Over the centuries, the kaluthin spread across the planet and created an atmosphere which was so high in oxygen it was almost toxic to humans. The grass also gave the planet a distinct aural glow, mainly from the phosphorus it consumed. This living growth was unusually countered by the Dark Side energy on the planet, which originated in the desert region and slowly spread. The Jedi of the Old Republic determined that the desert area would eventually consume the fertile kaluthin plains, utterly destroying the planet's surface. (LFC, WOTC)

Almas Academy
this was the name of the Jedi training compound established on the planet Almas 145 years before the Battle of Naboo. Its original founding was watched closely by the Jedi Council, which feared that its proximity to a source of Dark Side energy would be catastrophic to its student. However, Nerra Ziveri proposed that the schools' proximity to the Sith fortress on Almas would serve as a constant reminder to all students of the dangers of the Dark Side fo the Force. The buildings of the Almas Academy were located in the very center of the city of Forard. (LFC)

Almond-kwevvu Crisp-munchies
a small pastry favoried by many Squibs. (SWJ11)

Almost Authentic
this was the name of a Surronian L19 freighter stolen by a group of pirates from Imperial Moff Aricos Dreleene. He had hoped to obtain an L19a special edition, but discovered that his "bargain" was a run-of-the-mill L19. He invested a huge sum of credits to have outlaw techs refit the ship to appear to be a true L19a, including modification of the serial numbers and transpoder codes, and Dreleene was able to pass it off for many years. However, a band of pirates saw the First Edition and captured it, thinking they had acquired an L19a. After learning that it was a fake, the pirates turned the Moff and the ship over to the Alliance. The Alliance refitted the ship, and renamed it the Almost Authentic. The Alliance armed the ship with the stock twin blaster cannons as well as a turret-mounted ion cannon. (SS)

Almoster
this slang term was used in the Elrood Sector to describe any being who lived on the planet Lanthrym during the Empire's control of the sector.

Alora was first encountered by Luke Skywalker at the Jedi praxeum on Yavin 4, when the Twi'lek managed to infilitrate the temples and hack information from Master Skywalker's computer. When the cult was discovered by Jaden Korr and Rosh Penin, Tavion was able to capture on convert Penin to their cause. Jaden Korr remained free, and managed to track Alora to Hoth, where she had been following the trail of Master Skywalker to Dagobah. A brief fight ensued, but Alora was allowed to escape when Kyle Katarn prevented Jaden from killing her. Although Alora returned to the service of Tavion, she again encountered Jaden, this time on Taspir III. Alora initially chose not to fight Jaden directly, instead sending hordes of Disciples to confront him. Jaden was up to the challenge, however, and eventually reached the location where Rosh Penin was hiding. Alora then revealed that the entire situation was a trap to capture the Jedi, and forced Jaden to choose between his loyalties: he could either give in to the Dark Side of the Force and slay Penin for lying, or he could remain on the Light Side and give up his fight. Jaden chose the Light Side, which angered Alora. She killed Penin on the spot, then challenged Jaden herself. Unfortunately for Alora, she underestimated Jaden's strength, and the Jedi Knight was able to defeat her in combat. (JKA)

Alph
this man was one of the slavers who worked on the planet Mandalore, during the height of the Galactic Civil War. He was known for his cruel sense of humor, always finding something fun in the mistreatment of the slaves. (LTA4, MC69)

Alph
this dark-skinned man was a starfighter pilot who served the Alliance, during the height of the Galactic Civil War. Alph was part of the small team, led by Luke Skywalker, which piloted modified TIE Fighters in order to infiltrate Admiral Giel's armada in an effort to eliminate its threat to the Alliance. Despite the fact that their attack took the Imperials by surprise, Alph was shot down and killed early in the battle. (MC61)

Alpha
this was the nickname used by Anakin Skywalker to describe the clone trooper designated A-17, during the defense of Naboo, during the Clone Wars. Anakin chose to call the trooper Alpha, since he seemed to be much more than a simple clone. During the Battle of Jabiim, Anakin use the Force to draw away the droid army protecting the Separatist base, so that A-17 could set of a huge explosion to destroy it, cutting off Durge's only way to launch an attack on Naboo. However, the explosion was bigger than A-17 had anticipated, and he was disabled in the blast. This allowed Durge to injure A-17 before Anakin could intervene, but Anakin and Obi-Wan Kenobi managed to drive Durge and Asajj Ventress off Ohma-'Dun. A-17 continued to serve with Anakin during the Battle of Jabiim, but he began to chafe at the Jedi's orders to keep as many Separatists alive for questioning. A-17 began to openly question Obi-Wan's leadership on Jabiim, suggesting that the Republic's forces should simply kill every rebel and political leader, thereby ending the hostilities once and for all. Asajj Ventress managed to capture both Obi-Wan and Alpha on Jabiim, and she transported them both to Rattatak for interrogation. Ventress mercilessly tortured them while hoping to turn them over to Count Dooku as gifts. Kenobi and Alpha managed to escape, with some help from Ki-Adi-Mundi and Anakin Skywalker, before returning to Coruscant. Alpha was later recalled to Kamino, to serve as the instructor for a new batch of clone commanders. He agreed to take Anakin's suggestion of unique names for the clone to Kamino. (RNFW, SWDB, RHF)

this was the political title given to the primary leaders of the Shistavanen people. (AIR)

Alpha Red
this was the codename given to the biological pathogen developed by the New Republic Intelligence team, also known as Alpha Red, to work against the Yuuzhan Vong. The Alpha Red pathogen was an airborne killer that attacked only those forms of life which contained the unique genetic strand that was found in all Vongformed life. It had a latency of about five days, giving the pathogen a chance to locate the genetic target. Then, it attacked the host on a cellular level, breaking down cellular material until the body's tissues became liquid. This liquid was laden with the Alpha Red pathogen, which could then be passed on to other individuals. Dif Scaur and the NRI planned to deploy Alpha Red from the air, confident that it would selectively attack Yuuzhan Vong and leave the galaxy's own lifeforms alone. They reasoned that the use of Alpha Red against the Yuuzhan Vong was no different than the ways in which the alien invaders destroyed Ithor and Coruscant. They also believed that another Yuuzhan Vong attack of biochemical nature could be thwarted by the Alpha Red pathogen, before it could take hold on a target world. Their plan met with stern opposition from the Jedi Knights, but was supported and approved by Chief of State Cal Omas. The Fosh Jedi Knight Vergere had other plans, however, based on her fifty years of experience with the Yuuzhan Vong. She managed to steal the only viable sample of Alpha Red from its secured location - an action that many military people believe was abetted by Jacen Solo - and change it into something harmless. The genetic blueprint of the Alpha Red virus was maintained, however, and work began shortly after the Battle of Ebaq to rebuilt it. In a secret activity, the Bothan Intelligence agent Wraw was inserted into Team Meloque, with the specific mission to deploy the new virus on Caluula to test its effectiveness. The test worked almost too well, as the winged-stars which were native to Caluula died off, along with the Yuuzhan Vong and their bio-technology. For this reason, the Alpha Red project was ultimately scrapped after the Yuuzhan Vong surrendered at Coruscant, shortly after the test on Caluula. (DW, UF)

Alpha Red
this was the codename of the experimental group created by the New Republic Intelligence agency, and charged with performing covert research into the Yuuzhan Vong biology. Led by Doctor Joi Eicroth and staffed by a group of Chiss scientists, Alpha Red was a logical spinoff of the Alpha Blue team. Primary among the goals for Alpha Red was the discovery of how the Yuuzhan Vong genetic structure worked, and what could be done to attack them at the physiological level. The formation of Alpha Red could be traced almost back to the point at which the Yuuzhan Vong captured Belkadan, and was aided by people like Danni Quee. After much research, Alpha Red learned that the Yuuzhan Vong genetic makeup was very similar to that of most beings in the galaxy. However, a unique strand of genetic material was found in the Yuuzhan Vong body that was shared with every known form of Vongformed life. This discovery allowed the Alpha Red team to develop an airborne pathogen that could attack this unique string of genes and infect the Yuuzhan Vong and their creations. The virus was believed to have been shelved after Vergere destroyed the original sample, but the blueprints for its creation were never erased. A new strain was devised and secretly unleashed on Caluula, shortly before the Yuuzhan Vong surrendered at Coruscant. The strain proved effective in killing the Yuuzhan Vong and their bio-technology, but it also killed off swarms of flitnats and much of the winged-star population. For this reason, the Alpha Red project was ultimately scrapped. (DW, UF)

Alpha Team
a generic term used to describe the first survey group to determine a newly-found planet's resources and habitability. (HSE)

Alpha TR-8
this was the codename for the Imperial prison facility located on the planet Rordak. Alpha TR-8 maintained a perfect record of no escapes during the Galactic Civil War, although later inspection of the facility's plans revealed that escape was possible. At maximum capacity, Alpha TR-8 could hold more than 5,400 prisoners, all of which were forced to work in a nearby barthierum mine. (PG1)

Alpha-02
this was one of the few aberrant clones of Jango Fett that was not reconditioned or destroyed by the Kaminoans, during the early period of the Clone Wars. Alpha-02, who became known as Spar to his fellow clones, was among the first 100 test subjects produced by on Kamino. Eight and a half years after his decanting, something happened to trigger the memories of Jango Fett that were hidden in the DNA of the clones, and Alpha-02 became obsessed with rebuilding the Mandalorian supercommandos envisioned by Jaster Mereel. Alpha-02 deserted Kamino and traveled to Mandalore, where legend held that Mandalore the First established the Mandalorian Crusaders. He managed to draw in the surviving members of the Mandalorian Death Watch, as well as some 200 soldiers from local ploice forces on Mandalore, to create a mercenary force known as the Mandalorian Protectors. After assuming command of the Protectors, Alpha-02 became known as Mandalore the Resurrector, reviving the ancient tradition of naming leaders after the first Mandalore. The Protectors joined the fighting of the Clone Wars, carrying out covert operations for the Confederacy of Independent Systems, until all but three of the Protectors were killed. Only Tobbi Dala, Fenn Shysa, and Alpha-02 survived the Clone Wars, but Alpha-02 was a broken shell of the man he once was. His team was attacked on Norval II while trying to eliminate Padme' Amidala, and Alpha-02 just barely survived. He wandered the galaxy for many years, unsure about his place, until he was apprehended by the Extrictarium Nebula by Ailyn Vel. Vel believed that Alpha-02 was actually Boba Fett, and murdered him in an act of revenge for her mother's death. She took his Mandalorian armor, and after learning that Fett was still alive, used to masquerade as Fett. (SWI80)

Alpha-17
this was the designation of one of the clone troopers who trained subsequent generations of clones grown by the Kaminoans for the Army of the Republic, during the early stages of the Clone Wars. His success with basic training exercises made Alpha-17 a prime candidate to lead the training of the Advanced Reconnassiance Commandos, which were also known as ARC Troopers. (SWI74)

Alsakan
this planet was founded before the advent of the Old Republic. It was settled by the colonists who brought the Kuat Explorer to the Core. Over the years, the inhabitants have made war on each other with regularity and passion, in a series of battles known as the Alsakan Conflicts. The wondrous warships used in the battles were the design basis for the Invincible-class dreadnaughts. When Palpatine rose to power and formed the Empire, Alsakan supported the New Order. It surrendered quickly to the New Republic, however, when Ackbar came to recover the planet. (DESB, CSA)

Alsakan Guard
this was the name of the primary police and defense force that protected the planet Alsakan. They used a stylized version of the Tessent as their emblem. (GMR9)

Alsakan Tessent
this was the term used to describe the version of the Tessent that was attributed to the ancient Kings of Archais who united the tribes of Alsakan. Like the Ayrou Tessent, it resembled a large farlus hawk with the head of a felinx. According to legend, the Alaskan Tessent was a representation of the guardian of Saml Previl and the ancient Kings of Archais, who united Alsakan under a common leader. The Alsakan Tessent was a symbol of patriotism, although many treasure hunters believed that it was also the key to unlocking an ancient storehouse full of riches. The Alsakan Tessent disappeared sometime later, and several legends and rumors of its final resting place were told throughout Moddell Sector. One rumor held that it reappeared in the possession of a member of the Guard of Aldera during the last decades of the Old Republic. The Guardsman was part of the team which estalished the orbital telescopes around Ast Kikorie, but was on a shuttle that was ferrying supplies from Ast Kikorie when it crashed back onto the planet. The Guardsman kept the Alsakan Tessent close to his downed ship, preferring to live in anonymity rather than revealing what he possessed. Another rumor claimed that the Alsakan Tessent was stolen in ancient times by Jilst Bindalin, who died on Sarafur with the Tessent in his possession. Note that Star Wars Gamer, issue 9, also claims that this particular Tessent was of Alderaanian origin. (GMR9)

Altar of Death
this chamber within the Charon starship Desolate was the primary temple of Charon worship. It represented the black hole which was consuming the Charon homeworld. In the center of the chamber was a huge, black stone monolith which seemed to consume the Force and any life energies near it. Any lifeform which is near the monolith is suddenly drained of its life force, in accordance with the Charon belief that all life must return to the Void. (OS)

Altar of Promises
this religious site was founded just outside Colony One, on Ylesia. Located at the foot of the Mountains of the Exalted, the Altar was the site of the daily devotions performed by the t'landa Til for the pilgrims which flock to the planet. This religious ceremony was actually a ruse perpetrated by the t'landa Til, who simply used resonant pouches in their necks to create vibrations which affect the sensory areas of the brains of other sentients. After the Yuuzhan Vong took control of Ylesia and turned it over to the Peace Brigade, Thrackan Sal-Solo planned to rebuild the site as a temple for the Yuuzhan Vong to worship their gods. (TPS, Y)

Althon
this man was the leader of the Citizen's Council, on the planet Dodz, during the decade leading up to the Battle of Yavin. During much of his career, Councilman Althon was essentially powerless, since the Council and the planet were under the control of Governor Kugg. Although he did not condone Jost Ellon's use of a Ranger X-1 defense droid against Kugg's Destroyer, when Kugg's droid was destroyed in combat, Althon quickly thanked the young boy and set out to reclaim Dodz for its citizens. (MDCAR)

this assassin worked for Dirk Balor during the Galactic Civil War. Wuho worked with a captive nightmare demon known as Reist, which he controlled with a lead-lined helmet and a forcefield bubble. Wuho was sent to capture Luke Skywalker in the Lapez System, and cornered Luke on Lapez 3. Wuho sent Reist in first, with a homing device to locate his position later. Wuho followed in a shuttle, and discovered that Reist had been badly injured by Luke in a fight. Wuho then engaged Luke himself, and was injured. This injury revealed to Luke that Wuho was an android. Luke took parts from the droid body to repair his own damaged ship, leaving the cybernetic corpse of Wuho behind on Lapez 3. (CSWDW, W149)

Altronel, Ketrian
this woman, a native of the planet Hargeeva, grew up in a blue-collar family of cloth merchants. Her parents recognized her ability to learn and study, and worked hard to ensure that she had a thorough education. Ketrian chose to study the field of geology, and was awarded a scholarship to a university attached to the Imperial Academy. She excelled there, and was best known for her revolutionary ideas in the field of metal sciences. She was also a collector of swords and knives, as she was fascinated with the ways in which metal could be shaped to form the blades. She took up fencing, and through the sport she met Stevan Makintay. The two eventually fell in love, and Ketrian "branded" him with a scar on the cheek when he tried to break up a duel between herself and another woman who made advances toward him. Mak proposed marriage to her, which led to Makintay's disinheritance. After his father had him sent away to prison, he told Ketrian that Mak had left her for a life as a starfighter pilot. She felt betrayed by Mak, and fell deeply into her work at the Arginall Refinery. Her work with the minerals of the planet led to the discovery of how to increase the heat-absorption properties of ostrine ten-fold, which caught the attention of Nial Pedrin. She later saw Mak in a holovid depicting the results of his failed rebel uprising in Arginall City, but didn't get a chance to confront him until sometime later. Then, Mak brought along several members of his Alliance team, in hopes of convincing her to join him and the Alliance. She refused, and was captured with him as part of an Imperial raid and shipped off to a penal colony. When she learned that Pedrin had killed her good friend, Alikka Nolan, during an intense interrogation session, Ketrian began to doubt her loyalties to the Empire. Following their "rescue" from the Imperials by the Ghawem pirates, Ket rejoined Mak and became part of the Alliance, working out of Eyrie Base. (SWJ8)

Altyr 5
the New Republic maintained an outpost on this world, although the base was atacked by Imperial forces some seven years after the Battle of Endor.

Alwari
this was the name given to the nomadic population of the planet Ansion, during the last decades of the Old Republic. Ostensibly led by the overclans of the Borokii and the Januul, the Alwari chose to remain separate from the Unity of Community, fearing that the city dwellers would usurp all the rights to the grasslands they called home. The Alwari were traditionalists at heart, and had adapted modern technology to their own uses. Even glowlamps were modified to flicker, like the natural flames used by their ancestors. When Ansion started thinking about seceding from the Republic, the Alwari were certain that the Republic - especially the Jedi Knights sent to Ansion to settle the dispute - sided with the city dwellers. (APS)

Alya
Borsk Fey'lya was a member of this Bothan clan, which was one of only three clans allowed to colonize the planet Kothlis after it was purchased from Raynor Mining Enterprises.

alyssaroxu
this was the handle of one of the many slicers who first discovered Tiny F's message of an impending attack by the Thaereian Military on the people of the Cularin System, during the early stages of the Clone Wars. alyssaroxu seemed to have a flambouyant personality, and the signature on her postings read "Hugs and kisses, Alyssa, future apprentice to Baylan." When Tiny F first posted a decrypted message form Jir Tramsig to the Cularin HoloNet, alyssaroxu was one of the few who initially thought it was a hoax. It was during this series of exchanges that alyssaroxu also started a running campaign to flame the slicer known as wampa1. In order to keep the immature slicer off the node, Alyssa sent three trillion copies of a picture of wampa1's mother and a gundark from wampa1's own HoloNet node. (LFCW)

Alyssia
this woman was Prince Isolder's cousin, and one of the many within the royal family who disapproved of his choice of Teneniel Djo for a wife. Following the Battle of Fondor, in which Isolder lost a large portion of the Hapan fleet, there were seven recorded assassination attempts against Isolder, many of which originated from Alyssia. It was even believed that Alyssia talked her own niece - the daughter of her younger sister, Chelik - into trying to assassinate Prince Isolder, shortly after the Second Battle of Coruscant. (DJ)

Alysssa Maggrit
this young Duros girl was twelve years old when the Clone Wars broke out. She was living in the city of Tolea Biqua, on the planet Genarius, running numbers for her uncle at the time.

an alien race native to the planet Maridun, the Amanin were a race of tall, flat-bodied creatures with an impossibly agile form. Their long, thin trunks are punctuated by thin, gangly limbs which allowed them to become expert hunters in the jungle fringes they inhabited. Their unusual body shape made normal walking ungainly, but their ability to climb trees and roll along the ground made them swift in their natural environment. Vital organs within the Amani body were small, and were distributed throughout their bodies, making them difficult to kill. Important organs were also duplicated, and their brains were really a network of distributed bundles of nerves. They were a tribal people with a primitive level of technology when the Empire tried to garrison Maridun, shortly after the Battle of Yavin. Most Amanin were skeptical and even fearful of high-technology items. When the Empire discovered Maridun, it wasted several companies in their first attempt to subdue the Amanin, as the Imperial forces were completely unprepared for the coordination of the Amanin, both in pre-battle planning and in actual combat. Eventually, however, the Empire prevailed, and managed to acquire Amanin slaves by pitting the tribes of Amanin against each other, with rivals supplying slaves from their enemy's tribes. (GG12, UANT, SWELM)

Amanoa
this woman, who lived 4,000 years before the advent of the New Order, was the Queen of Onderon, and wife to King Ommin. For many years, Amanoa was unaware that Ommin had been studying the ways of the Sith. When she did find out, Amanoa tried to break the hold the Dark Side of the Force had on him, but failed utterly. Instead, Ommin brought her into the Sith magics and began training her. She had some ability to control the Force, and Freedon Nadd's presence allowed her access to the Dark Side quite easily. She became known as the "Dark Queen." She held the Onderonians away from the planet's other wild tribes until her daughter, Galia, fell in love with the Beastmaster prince. She was so enraged that she called on Nadd and the Dark Side of the Force and tried to defeat the Beastmasters herself, but Master Arca returned her to the Light Side. The removal of the Dark Side energy killed her, and she was buried with Ommin and Freedon Nadd on the Dxun moon. (TOJ, DLS, TOJC)

A'Mar
this was the name adopted by the human colonists who settled the moon of Lamus, some ten generations before the Galactic Civil War. The name itself was derived from an ancient dialect, and meant "People of the Emerald Sky." Although not a superstitious or primitive group, the A'Mar were nonetheless concerned with the occurrence of Lamus' sunless day, and event which happened once every thirty years. Their fear was heightened by the fact that the sun seemed to rise just after a group of A'Mar drank from the Wellspring, the source of all surface water on the moon. This fear, although tempered by an understand of how celestial bodied moved through space, gave rise to the ritual known as The Vigil. (WOA31)

Amar, Allegra
this young princess was a member of the Alliance, and was part of the group assigned to Edan Base when it was attacked by the Empire, shortly after the Battle of Yavin. (IAG)

Amazing Alonzo
this circus star was part of Kersh Lauskner's Traveling Animal/Acrobatic Arcadium. Alonzo owned and controlled a wild trompa, which he kept at bay with an electric prod. During a performance at the Gralleenya Gala, Alonzo's trompa got loose and attacked a young child. The child was rescued by Rogan, who was injured by the beast. A group of Alliance agents - on Questal to rescue Tiree - subdued the trompa before it could do any more damage. It was later discovered that the beast was reacting to the low-level emanations of Moff Bandor's hurlothrumbic generator. (GCQ)

Ambak
this Mon Calamari physicist proposed the existence of the Ambak Limit. (GG2)

Ambak Limit
proposed and extrapolated by the Mon Calamari physicist Ambak, this limit identifies the distance from a planet within which moons can be formed from the accretion of leftover matter. Within the Ambak Limit, the gravitational pull of the planet serves to tear apart any moon-like body. Beyond the Limit, moons can be formed or "collected" from space-borne bodies. (GG2)

Ambaln
this Mon Calamari was a Jedi Knight who worked as an investigator during the last years of the Old Republic. Ambaln's primary job was to locate potential Jedi students and assess their capabilities. Any candidate who met the strict guidelines of the Jedi Order were brought to Coruscant for training. He also worked undercover on several occasions to help track down criminals and other miscreants. Just before he was dispatched to locate a potential Padawan on the planet Lobaoc, Ambaln spent considerable time undercover in a criminal syndicate. His experiences there tainted his connection to the Force, bringing him into contact with the Dark Side of the Force. He secretly desired to start his own "Jedi Order", based on his newfound connection to the Force. Ambaln took the assignment to locate a young girl on Lobaoc, but planned to turn the child to the Dark Side as the first of his own students. Ambaln planned to sacrifice his loyal assistant droid, Z-N0, as part of a trap to throw off the Jedi team which was dispatched to Lobaoc to stop him. While the Jedi team managed to intercept him, Ambaln was able to escape into the watery depths of Lobaoc, taking the small girl candidate with him. They fled the planet aboard Ambaln's whitecloak fighter, and were never heard from again. (WOA16)

Ambar, Drexler
this man was a well-known fisherman and adventurer who traveled to a large number of planets, documenting their attractions for other enthusiasts. He was noted for insinuating that the planet Neftali was completely devoid of the Force, and was an entity within itself. He later settled on Neftali and opened Ambar's Big Game, Tackle, and Gear Shop to cater to the sportsbeings who traveled to Neftali. Drexler and his wife, Keturah, had seven sons and a daughter before he disappeared on a routine check of traps near their home. Keturah and the locals searched for months, but never found him. (BSS)

Ambar, Keturah
this woman was born to a family of fishermen on the planet Neftali, and was generally regarded as the oldest living resident of the planet during the height of the Galactic Civil War. She fell in love with, and later married, sportsman Drexler Ambar, and the pair settled on Neftali to raise a family of seven sons and a single daughter. After Drexler's disappearance shortly before their sixtieth wedding anniversary, Keturah maintained their business, Ambar's Big Game, Tackle, and Gear Shop. (BSS)

Ambassador-class Shuttle
this was a SoroSuub shuttle design, also known as the Luxury Shuttle 001, developed and manufactured during the early years of the New Order. It was designed to spoil the rich and powerful, being outfitted with the most comfortable appointments and amenities. Measuring fifty meters in length, it was armed with a pair of front-mounted double laser cannons. It required a pilot and co-pilot to operate, and could accommodate up to ten passengers and 100 metric tons of cargo. (SWJ3)

Ambassadorial Dining Area
this part of the Imperial Palace on Coruscant was decorated in gold-leaf, and was highlighted by artifacts collected by the Emperor Palpatine. The New Republic maintained the furnishings in the hall, and used it as a Senatorial meeting place after Dolph bombed the Senate Assembly Chamber. (TNR)

Ambition
this was the name of the Carrack-class cruiser maintained by Moff Kentor Sarne on Kal'Shebbol, as his primary escape mechanism should the planet fall to the New Republic. The Ambition was maintained below-ground, and was well-armed and well-armored. When Page's Commandos finally launched their assault on Kal'Shebbol, Sarne was forced to flee in the Ambition, along with his closest advisors. They blasted their way out of the underground chamber and fled Kal'Shebbol. (DARK)

Ambitious
this Imperial supply ship crashed into the B'knos mining colony, completely destroying it. (TBSB)

Ambria
perhaps best-known as the world which Jedi Master Thon tamed, Ambria was a ringed world in the Stenness System. It was barren and sparse, and was once full of Dark Side energy. Note that, at one point in Tales of the Jedi, Oss Willum says that Thon rid the planet Arkania of the Dark Side, instead of Ambria. When Master Thon arrived there, he pushed back the Dark Side into its source, Lake Natth. He lived there from that point until his death, keeping an eye on the lake and its denizens. The planet became a research location several millennia later, when BioTech Industries set up a campus there. Ambria was orbited by four moons. (TOJ, DA, HXW)

Ambrian Wastes
this was the vast desert which covered most of Ambria's equatorial region. (TOJC)

this was one of the most common female names given to human children across the galaxy. (GCG)

Amee
this six-year-old girl was born to enslaved parents on the desert world of Tatooine. Her family was owned by Yor Millto during this time. Growing up, she was a friend of young Anakin Skywalker. Two years before the Battle of Naboo, Amee lost her mother, Hala, to the slave raider Krayn. Amee and her father survived the attack. Two years later, before the Boonta Eve Classic podrace, Amee and Seek both believed that Anakin's homemade podracer would never fly. They were surprised and amazed to learn that Anakin eventually won the race, as well as his freedom, and left Tatooine to become a Jedi Knight. Amee, who had always been fond of Anakin, remained a close friend of his mother, Shmi, in the years that followed. Shmi often noted that Amee would swoon at the sight of every handsome young man. Amee was portrayed by Jenna Green in Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace, although the Star Wars Databank indicates that Katie Lucas portrayed her. (SW1, IS1, JQ, TG, SWDB)

Amelkin versus Tovath
this was a classic match of Quadrant, replayed for many years because of the incredible strategems involved. (IF)

Amencia
this was a common name among the Chev race. (UANT)

Amended Proprieties Bill
this Old Republic law prohibited any member of the Republic government from profiting by using insider information, learned in the course of their legislative duties, to bolster their financial holdings. Statute 435, Sub-statute 1759 specifically focused on the misuse of legislative proposals or construction contracts being negotiated by the Republic. (COD)

Ament
this huge man and his sister, Jaren, encountered Darca Nyl on their homeworld, while the Jedi was on his way to Molavar track down the Dark Jedi Lycan, during the height of the Clone Wars. When Darca found them, they were being pursued by a group of speederbike riders intent on killing them. When Darca destroyed their pursuers, Jaren explained that she had been an ambassador among her own people, sent to the bikers to negotiate a truce. Ament had been her protection, but both were threatened with death and chased away just before they met up with Darca. However, after Jaren showed Darca how to call forth images from their campfire, Darca used the same skill to call forth images about Ament. It was then that Darca discovered the truth: Ament's simple appearance belied a deep-seated rage that often exploded when his sister was in trouble. Six years earlier, Ament had murdered thirty-one people before he was captured and sent to prison. Jaren had actually gone to help Ament escape from prison, and they were fleeing the authorities when they met Darca. Darca was forced to turn them both over to the bikers before traveling on to Molavar. (T22)

Amerce
this Imperial-class Star Destroyer was being refitted at Fondor, for use as part of the New Republic fleet, when the Yuuzhan Vong attacked the system. The Amerce was destroyed by the suicide runs of several groups of coralskippers, which holed the ship and left her broken and adrift. (JE)

Amidala, Padme'
this native of the planet Naboo was born with the name Padme' Naberrie, and took the royal name Amidala when she was elected Queen. She was just fourteen standard years of age when she was voted into office as the Queen of Naboo. However, she was already a seasoned veteran of the planet's political scene, having served for two years as the ruler of the capital city of Theed. Note that issue 6 of the Star Wars Kids magazine claims Amidala was elected Queen at the age of twelve, not just city leader. She was born to humble parents who live in a remote, mountain village, but quickly became enamored of the glamorous life of the city after visiting with her grandmother, Winama. Although this worried her parents, they also saw that she was quite special, and allowed her to continue her political training. After becoming Queen, she trained under Captain Panaka in the martial arts, and also agreed to use deception when necessary to ensure her safety. To this end, she favored heavy theatrical facepaint and an incredibly ornate wardrobe, but this was mainly for practical purposes. The facepaint and clothing helped mask her true appearance, which closely resembled that of her handmaiden, Sabe'. In times of crisis or danger, Sabe' often took the place of the Queen, while Amidala pretended to be a simple servant using her given name Padme' Naberrie. Shortly after being elected Queen, she was thrust into the galactic forefront during the rise to power of Senator Palpatine and the crisis with the Trade Federation. She showed why she had been elected during the conflict, standing tall against the Neimoidians and traveling to Coruscant to petition her case to the Galactic Senate. However, political maneuvering was outside her scope, and she often deferred to Palpatine's judgement. This led her to fall into Palpatine's plan to discredit Chancellor Valorum, as she felt that the only way to save Naboo was to force Valorum out of office and replace him with a stronger figure. However, her experiences on Tatooine with Shmi and Anakin Skywalker had reduced her faith in the Old Republic anyway, and Valorum's lack of backbone in condemning the Neimoidian invasion only served to support her agreement with Palpatine's plan to remove Valorum from office. During her stay on Coruscant, Amidala realized that Jar Jar Binks - and the Gungans in general - were greatly misunderstood by the Naboo. With Binks' help, she devised a plan to remove the yoke of Neimoidian control. Once her plea had been heard, Amidala returned to Naboo and forged an alliance with the Gungan leader Boss Nass, and together they were able to repel the droid armies of the Trade Federation and free Naboo from its blockade in the climactic Battle of Naboo. Following the completion of her two terms as Queen, Amidala stepped into the role of Senator to the Old Republic. She served Chommell Sector, including Naboo and its 35 neighboring star systems, after Palpatine was elected Supreme Chancellor of the Republic. Senator Amidala was one of the loudest voices in opposition to Chancellor Palpatine's call for a military solution to the growing movement toward secession from the Republic, forming the Campaign Against Republic Militarization in an effort to stave off full-scale war. However, two assassination attempts on her life took her back to Naboo, under the safekeeping of a more mature Anakin Skywalker. They then discovered, much to their dismay, that they were falling in love. After surviving the Battle of Geonosis, Padme' and Anakin were married on Naboo, and were forced to keep their marriage a secret from everyone but themselves. The duplicity of their actions took its toll over time, as Anakin became more and more angry about having to hide their relationship. This anger spread to other aspects of Anakin's life, and Padme' began to see him slipping toward the Dark Side of the Force. She eventually confided in Obi-Wan Kenobi about her marriage, shortly after telling Anakin that she was pregnant with their first child. Obi-Wan agreed to help, but asked Padme' to try and keep Anakin from falling any further. In the wake of the First Battle of Coruscant, Anakin confided in her that he had done something terrible, and that he was going to travel to to Mustafar to destroy the Council of Separatists. Anakin said that it would finally bring them the peace the galaxy needed. Padme' was distraught enough to follow Anakin, hoping to prevent any further violence or change in Anakin. Obi-Wan took the opportunity to stow away aboard her ship, in an effort to bring Anakin to justice. When Anakin discovered Padme', and then Obi-Wan, had followed him, he immediately became angry and jealous. Grabbing Padme' by the neck, he accused them of plotting against him. Anakin and Obi-Wan shouted at each other, with Obi-Wanb trying to explain that he was not involved with Padme', just worried about them. Anakin refused to believe them, and tossed Padme' aside in order to confront his former Master. Padme' was then taken back aboard her ship by C-3PO, and Obi-Wan later returned to take them back to Coruscant after defeating Anakin. After landing at Polis Massa, Padme' was rushed to a medical facility, where it was discovered that she was physically fine, but was nonetheless dying. It was also discovered that she was pregnant with twins, who were removed from her womb just before she died, seemingly from a broken heart. In order to ensure that the twins grew up in secrecy, Padme's body was returned to her family on Naboo, but was made to appear still pregnant. All that was said of her death was that she died at the hands of the Jedi. In following with Naboo tradition, the identity of the father was not revealed, as an investigation would only serve to blemish her reputation. Note that the Star Wars: Episode III Visual Dictionary indicates that Padme's family was not told of the pregnancy. Padme' Amidala was portrayed by Natalie Portman in Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace, Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones, and Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith (SW1, TPM, JQA, IG1, SWK, OWS, SWDB, HNN4, VD2, X2, AOTC, VD3, IS3, E3N)

Amira Nasrabi
this female Mon Calamari was the owner and operator of the Illuminated Aquean casino, located on Streysel Island on the planet Vaynai, during the height of the New Order. She was often seen walking through the casino, talking to clients and gathering information like an infochant. She didn't sell the information, but she kept choice data to use for her own profit. Amira was also a stickler for security, and maintained dossiers on nearly all of her regular customers. What most beings didn't know was that the aquariums which lined the walls of the Illuminated Aquean contained marine life which created a wealth of natural poisons and toxins, which Amira used for formulate especially deadly mixtures. These poisons were not for public sale, but used by Amira to manipulate others into positions which gave her the most profit. (GMR8)

Amisus
this Ruurian was the daughter of Skynx, and she grew up to become the leader of the Unified Ruurian Colonies. It was Amisus who pledged the support of the Ruurians to Grand Admiral Thrawn and the Empire, some fifteen years after the Battle of Endor, when the Hand of Thrawn was discovered. (ECH)

Amithest, Mari
this young girl was a member of the Bear Clan training class, learning about the Force from Master Yoda himself during the year leading up to the Battle of Geonosis. Mari Amithest was portrayed by Phoebe Yiamkiati in Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones. (OWS, SWDB)

Amma
meaning "strong", this name was common among Gungan females. (GCG)

Amma
this is the capital city of the planet Bacrana, and the capital of Brak Sector. Shortly before the Battle of Yavin, a demonstration protesting the construction of the Imperial shipyards was broken up by Imperial forces under the command of Moff Lesan Ramier. The protestors were routed, and Moff Ramier was able to solidify his position. Amma was laid out in seven primary sectors, with two residential areas, a governmental sector, an industrial sector, a resort sector, the new city, and the Imperial sector. (SWJ8, FBS)

Ammar
this Imperial Moff, in charge of Portmoak Sector, was a contemporary of Abran Balfour. (GG9)

Ammuud
this planet was originally colonized by settlers from Thokos. There were seven colony ships that arrived, and the descendants from each ship formed the basis for Ammuud's seven major clans. A series of savage clan wars broke out, and lasted for nearly 10,000 years. About 100 years before the Galactic Civil War, the clans called a cease-fire, and developed a governmental system based on the Ammuud Code. Years later, the planet was under Corporate Sector Authority jurisdiction, but subcontracted to the clans. Each clan leader, or Mor, then ruled as part of the planet's government. This coalition is very shaky, as the clans tend to play against each other in a perpetual power struggle. There is a unique Code that is used among the clans to ensure some level of fairness. The planet itself is thickly forested, with large oceans and two immense polar ice caps. (HSR, CSA)

Ammuud Code
a set of rules and tenets which are used by the major clans on Ammuud to set guidelines for their interaction. The Code keeps the clans working as a coalition while it prevents them from killing each other. No one is above the Code. (HSR)

Ammuud Height
this was the tallest mountain found on the planet Ammuud. (EGP)

Ammuud Swooper
this battered, sky-blue YT-2400 freighter was part of the New Republic focrces which regrouped at Borleias, in the wake of the Battle fo Coruscant. When the Yuuzhan Vong finally retook Borleias, the Ammuud Swooper took damage in the evacuation but was escorted out by General Wedge Antilles. (EL2)

Amorris
Lando Calrissian suggested to Niles Ferrier that this planet was a possible source of stolen warships, since the Cavrilhu were using it as a base during the early years of the New Republic. (DFR)

Amorrn
this was the alias adopted by Nom Anor, when he first joined Vuurok I'pan's small group of Shamed Ones living below the surface of Coruscant. Shortly after I'pan's group was executed by Yuuzhan Vong warriors, Nom Anor stopped using the alias, for fear that it had been compromised. (FH1)

Amphibion
an amphibious assault vehicle used by the New Republic on Calamari, the Amphibion was designed and built by SedriMotors. Based on the Incom XM-21, the Amphibion is a quiet surface floater. Its low profile and quiet repulsorlifts allow troops to quickly and safely enter an aquatic battlezone. The Amphibion is lightly armored, and not equipped for heavy combat duty. This made them easy to produce in large quantities. If the Amphibion was required in combat situations, it was usually supported by other craft. The Amphibion measures 7.3 meters in length, and is armed with a single antipersonnal gun mounted in the rear. Hand-held weapons are stored in lockers inside the ship. The Amphibion can be mounted with an Atgar 1.4 FD P-tower. (DE1, DESB, EGV)

Amphistaff
this unusual reptile was native to the homeworld of the Yuuzhan Vong. Amphistaffs were literally grown in low groves, emerging in threes from a deep-rooted, leathery polyp. Even as juveniles, amphistaffs were strongly carnivorous, and their voracious feeding served to nourish the amphistaffs as well as the polyp on which they grew. Because their mouths were often smaller than their prey, amphistaffs used their teeth to tear the prey into small chunks. These chunks were small enough for the groundmouth of the polyp to consume as well, and the young amphistaffs often swept food into the groundmouth to help sustain the polyp. As the young amphistaff grew larger, it became too large for the polyp to support and broke itself away from the main plant. Wild amphistaffs then fed voraciously before rooting themselves int eh ground and transforming into polyps, repeatting their asexual reproduction cycle. If captured when they leave the polyp, young amphistaffs could be bonded to a Yuuzhan Vong warrior. A snake-like creature in its normal form, the amphistaff used a series of strange power glands to harden all or part of its body to the consistency of stone. This makes the creature a valuable form of spear to the Yuuzhan Vong warriors. It can also narrow its neck and tail before hardening, to form a kind of razor. This narrowing of the body results in an incredibly thin blade, which was honed even further by the life energies of the power glands being compressed around it. The edge of the amphistaff blade was measured in atoms, and it could slice through virtually any substance. The only known substance which could repel it was conduun crab armor. When relaxed, the Yuuzhan Vong warrior could use the amphistaff like a whip. The amphistaff was also highly venomous, and could accurately spit its poison into the eyes of an opponent twenty meters away. The poison blinds instantly, and causes a long, slow death if manages to seep into the target's pores. When hardened, the amphistaff was also impervious to the blade of a lightsaber. Later, in the campaign against the New Republic, the Yuuzhan Vong developed a species of amphistaff which could be implanted into a warrior's body for concealed transport. After the hostilities between the Yuuzhan Vong and the Galactic Alliance were resolved, and the Yuuzhan Vong were allowed to live on the planet Zonama Sekot, they found that amphistaffs and many other bio-engineered weapons simply reverted to their animal forms and fled into the forests. This was one way in which Sekot forced the Yuuzhan Vong to give up their lust for war and embrace a more enlightened existence. (VP, DTO, HT, T, UF)

Ampliquen
this planet was in the Chorios Systems. It was against Ampliquen that Seti Ashgad instigated a series of pirate attacks, in order to draw New Republic forces away from Durren and Nam Chorios during Dzym's bid to gain control of the galaxy. This attack nullified the uneasy truce that existed between Ampliquen and Budpock, although this was part of Dzym's plans. Investigation into the riots found many links to the Loronar Corporation, which had been sowing dissent among the worlds of the New Republic in an effort to gain power. (POT, NEGW)

Ampohr
a species of tree that was harvested for its wood, which was often used in furniture. (COJ)

Ampuroon

one of the gods revered and adored by the Weequay, Am-Shak was the god of thunder. (MTSE)

AMT
this was one of the many repulsor-equipped war machines used by the Trade Federation during their invasion of Naboo. (GMR4)

Amthau
this terraformed world was the third planet in the Genesia System. The surface of the planet was dominated by rocky canyons, which spoke of the water which used to run across the planet's surface. This made the terraforming project much easier. It was also rumored that several sponsors of the terraforming project were prominent crimelords based on Genesia. When the terraforming was complete, Amthau became a favorite vacation spot for the wealthy inhabitants of Genesia. (FBS)

Amthau City
this was the only city formed on the planet Amthau, following its terraforming. Roughly seventy-five percent of the city's structured were located belowground, allowing the exterior city to be regularly patrolled. (FBS)

Amulet of Trust
this Gungan artifact was kept in the Gungan Sacred Place, until Jar Jar Binks was named to be a special representative to the Galactic Senate, in the years following the Battle of Naboo. The Gungans bestowed the amulet to Jar Jar, and a symbol of his position and the faith the Gungan people had in his ability to represent the Gungans to the Senate. (VD2)

Amun
this name was common among Sullustan males, and meant "faithful". (GCG)

an
this Shyriiwook word was used as the suffix to many Wookiee names. It translated into Basic as "craftsman" or "master". It could be attached to a prefix by itself, or combined with other suffixes to form a complete Wookiee name. (GMR10, GCG)

Ana
this was the only name Alex Winger knew for her mother, who died in the Imperial subjugation of Janara III. (SWJ1)

Anachro
this Hutt was the daughter of Orko, a H'uun who was an enemy of Gorga the Hutt. Gorga wanted to marry Anachro, and placed a bounty on Bar-Kooda, who was pirating Orko's ships. He hired Boba Fett to bring the pirate back in one piece, so that Bar-Kooda could be served to Orko during an engagement dinner. This pleased Orko immensely, and he gladly gave Anachro's hand in marriage to Gorga. They were married on Tatooine, and honeymooned on the planet Skeebo. There, Anachro was kidnapped by the Skavers and Kaptain Voor, who hoped to gain a huge ransom for her. Gorga once again called on Boba Fett, who encountered Ry-Kooda as well as Voor, and managed to eliminate both of them. Anachro was returned to Gorga's side, and was soon found to be pregnant. She hoped that this would bring her father and her husband together, but events unfolded around her that left her father dead and herself under attack by Ry-Kooda. Boba Fett intervened before the Koodan could reach her, saving her from certain death. She gave birth shortly thereafter. (BF)

Anarc
this Kitonak was the lead jizz wailer for the band Hutt. He hired a group of freelance scouts to return him to his homeworld for the Great Celebration during the Galactic Civil War.

Anarin
this Kitonak name was common across Kirdo III. (UANT)

this huge, unkempt man served under Major Grau on Alashan, during the early years of the Galactic Civil War. Chosen mainly for his brawn, Anarine was a Fleet Sergeant who also acted as Grau's second-in-command on Alashan. He was distinguished by his bald head and long, pointed fingernails, and his overall appearance was more animal than human. Anarine and Grau were invited to join the Alliance, after surviving the mission to Alashan, but both refused and returned to the Empire instead. (MCI6, MC7)

Anarrad
this strange pit is located in the Shadow Forest of Kashyyyk, near Rwookrrorro. Wookiee legend says something fell out of the sky and crashed into the forest, creating a deep pit-like scar through the trees and deep into the ground. The planet, according to the legends, did not heal the wound to the forest, deciding instead that the pit would be the home of the katarn. Located at the very bottom of Anarrad is the Well of the Dead. (TT)

Anavill Smuggler's Guild

Anaxes
this was a Core Worlds planet. Known as the Defender of the Core, Anaxes served as the primary naval base for the Old Republic fleet that protected the capital. (WOTC, SWI64, CCW)

Anaxes Citadel
this was the primary governmental building found on the planet Anaxes. It was built more than 700 years before the Battle of Yavin, allowing the Old Republic to station its largest defensive force in the Solis Axum System. Roughly a third the size of Couscant's Imperial Palace, the Anaxes Citadel was nevertheless more impressive to most naval officers, for it was here that the Navy's highest honors were bestowed. (CCW)

Anaxes Station

Ancher, Karl Mathieu
this smuggler often worked with Drake Paulsen. They were imprisoned together on Omman, but escaped with the help of Tait Ransom. Karl retired to the planet Socorro, where he established the Black Dust Tavern. Ancher was also one of the three primary owners of the Ethra Brewery on Socorro. The escape from Omman left Ancher with a cybernetic leg. After his retirement, Ancher was considered one of the fathers of modern smuggling on Socorro, but was also considered one of the most honest businessbeings on the planet. (SWJ2, SWJ3, BSS)

Ancher, Toob
this smuggler spent most of his time in the Ottega System. He was permanently disfigured when a bounty hunter's thermal detonator exploded in his face. His left eye was completely blown away, and his right had to be replaced with a cybernetic prosthesis. After contracting the Black Winter disease, he was taken to Redcap by Drake Paulsen to serarch out Saylor Marjan and recover a debt owed to Saadoon-Kauldi. It was on Redcap that the disease finally took Toob over the edge, and he set out to attack the Aremin, believing that he had to escape an Imperial ambush on his smuggling ship. Drake Paulsen was forced to shoot Toob out of the sky, in order to avoid a greater conflict. (SWJ2, SWJ5)

Ancher, Toob
this smuggler worked for the crimelord Saadoon-Kauldi, and collected debts from Saylor Marjan on Arapia. The brother of Karl Ancher, Toob was the more reckless smuggler, and grew tired of his brother's intellectual pursuits outside the arena of starships. When a bounty hunter's thermal detonator went off in his face, Toob's face was badly damaged in the blast. He retired shortly afterward, but contracted Brekken Vinthern, the Bitter Winter disease, and slowly lost his mind. (SWJ5)

Anchor Blue
this immense Houk was one of the gladiators who was fighting on Rattatak when Assaj Ventress submitted her name as a combatant, shortly after the Battle of Geonosis. Anchor Blue fought well enough on his own, although he once lost his right hand in battle. The Rattataki warlord who owned him had it replaced with a vibroblade, but he also had a pain-causing device implanted in the blade's hilt. This allowed the Rattataki to remotely cause Anchor Blue to experience and intense jolt of pain, which drove the Houk into a fighting rage. When the fighting was over, the same device pumped sedatives into Anchor Blue's bloodstream, calming his down enough to be returned to his meager cell. Unfortunately, Anchor Blue was among the combatants who stepped into The Cauldron with Asajj Ventress, and the lightsaber-wielding Rattataki made quick work of dispatching him. (SWDB)

Anchorhead
a major city, by Tatooine standards, Anchorhead was a major source of supplies for the settlers and moisture farmers on the planet. Luke Skywalker and his friends often gathered there, at Tosche Station. Located on the Great Chott, Anchorhead's average population was about 700 beings, and it was located several hundred kilometers southwest of Mos Eisley. During the height of the New Order, Anchorhead was the only one of the original settlements established on Tatooine to continue to exist. It was originally founded some 4,200 years before the Battle of Yavin, and was re-established during the second wave of colonization, some 4,100 years later. (SW, GG7, SOT, TG)

Anchorhead Volunteers
this was a collection of small businesses, based in the city of Anchorhead on Tatooine, which performed search and rescue operations in the desert. They were particularly busy after sandwhirls and other sudden storms, when travelers were lost of badly hurt. In operation during the height of the New Order and during the early years of the New Republic, Anchorhead Volunteers was actually a front for Alliance supporters who were smuggling agents and supplies beneath Imperial patrols. (TG)

Anchoron
this planet, located in the Corellian Sector, was supposedly the site of Garm Bel Iblis' death during the height of the New Order. Later, Talon Karrde established a listening post on the planet. (DFR, TLC)

Ancient and Honorable Union of the Tion Hegemony
this is the full name of the Tion Hegemony. (ML)

Ancient Corellian

Ancient Order of the Pessimists
this cult grew quietly on the volcanic world of Maryx Minor. The Order always believed that the worst would happen, regardless of the situation. They were forced to hide Abal Karda, during the fugitive's flight from the Empire. Karda killed at least one of the brothers, Mabob, believing the young man was spying on him when Mabob was simply bringing his meal. He killed another brother during Mabob's funeral, claiming their chants were too loud. The Order was then dismayed to learn that both Boba Fett and Darth Vader were tracking Karda, and they believed that their end was near. However, Fett and Vader fought to a standstill and left the planet, and their struggle only killed four of the Order's brothers. The leader of the Order declared that this was an omen, which meant that they needed to start looking for the worst in every situation. He declared that the order should begin looking toward the brighter side of any situation. Several of the Order's older members declared this a heresy, and they were proved correct. Vader felt that the Order had witnessed too much, and ordered their destruction. Several turbolaser barrages from Vader's Star Destroyer leveled their hermitage and destroyed the Order. (EOE)

Ancient Quarter

Ancient Tokens of Legendary Ewok Heroes
eight sacred artifacts from Ewok history, they have been handed down from priest to shaman to priest over the generations. Most recently, they were in the possession of Logray. The tokens are the White Wings of Hope, the Red Wings of Courage, the Blue Wings of Strength, the Candle of Pure Light, a magic walking stick, the Sook rock, a magic crystal, and an ivory tooth. The tokens are bestowed upon the members of a great undertaking, as was the case when Deej and his sons escorted the Towani children on a mission to rescue their parents from the Gorax. The crystal was carried by Deej until it was obvious that it belonged to Kaink, the Ewok priestess, who used it to divine the intent of the mission and to influence the animals of Endor. The walking stick was given to Wicket, for it allowed the gullible little Ewok to see through the false surface of the magic pool, and aided him in rescuing Mace from the pool's depths. The ivory tooth was part of an ancient jawbone which was possessed by Chukha-Trok, who joined the mission after befriending Mace. (EA)

Ancient Words
this was a form of epic poetry practiced by the Sekct. The Ancient Words took many hours to recite in their entirety, as the native language of the Sekct was very complex. (POM)

Ancients
this was another name for the Pau'an race, referring to their long lifespans. (E3N)

Ancum, Jioie
this woman, a supporter of the Alliance, was a native of the planet Tuttin IV. Jioie was trained in her youth as a classical musician, and had soprano voice which brought many an audience to tears. She and her husband, Tendis, had a son named Ryley, who they were forced to leave behind when the Empire took control of Tuttin IV. In order to provide a cover for their duties with the Alliance, they accepted a posting off-planet with the Empire, leaving Ryley in the care of Shran Etison. Tendis had taken a promotion to become the foreman of a factory offplanet, while Jioie went along as his assistant. Ryley, when he was old enough, began to hate his parents because he believed that they had abandoned him to take positions within the Empire. When she learned that Ryley had been feeding information to Keth Beamis, Jioie arranged to be on Beltrix III for his audition. Ryley was stunned to meet his mother there, but kept a straight face in order to maintain Jioie's cover. (GMR6)

Ancum, Ryley
this youth, a native of the planet Tuttin IV, was a member of the local Alliance cell during the years following the Battle of Yavin. Ry played the bass vye in the band called Far Cry, and used the bass line from his band's music to secretly transmit messages to Keth Beamis about Imperial shipping plans. Ryley had grown up supporting the Alliance after he was led to believe that his parents had abandoned him to take up positions within the Empire. Ryley himself was left in the care of Imperial Governor Shran Etison, so that he could remain on Tuttin IV and continue his education. When he learned what the Empire was doing behind its massive propaganda machine, Ryley' hatred for his parents only deepened. His hatred of the Empire hardened when Beamis was killed while being interrogated. However, Ryley was still under the protection of Governor Etison, and thought he was helpless to act. His patience paid off, though, when Etison arranged for Far Cry to act as "bait" in a trap to expose the Alliance cell on Beltrix III. Ryley agreed to continue auditioning for the Holstrum Talent Agency, so that Etison could catch the Alliance spies. Ryley, however, used his bassline coding system to send ahead a warning of Etison's plans. The cell was able to destroy or hide its records, and Etison's agents found nothing but a legitimate talent agency. While on Beltrix III, though, Ryley met with the Alliance agents running the local cell. The agents turned out to be none other than his musical teacher, Tet Tramys, and his own mother. Surprised, relieved, and excited all at once, Ryley maintained a calm demeanor and did nothing to expose his mother's cover. His faith in his parents, however, had been restored. (GMR6)

Ancum, Tendis
this man, a supporter of the Alliance, was a native of the planet Tuttin IV. He and his wife, Jioie, had a son named Ryley, who they were forced to leave behind when the Empire took control of Tuttin IV. In order to provide a cover for their duties with the Alliance, they accepted a posting off-planet with the Empire, leaving Ryley in the care of Shran Etison. Tendis had taken a promotion to become the foreman of a factory offplanet, while Jioie went along as his assistant. Ryley, when he was old enough, began to hate his parents because he believed that they had abandoned him to take positions within the Empire. (GMR6)

Andal, Villis
this Imperial Moff controlled Elrood Sector during the height of the Galactic Civil War. Andal was the son of a noble, well-connected Atrisian family, and spent much of his youth perfecting such archaic skills as marksmanship with a Kiliean bolt gun and riding the loirbnigg of the planet Frisal. An excellent student, he earned admission to the Imperial Diplomatic Corps. In return for an undisclosed favor to an Imperial Senator - rumored to have been a large sum of credits and the destruction of any evidence of the bribe - Andal was promoted to Assistant to the Moff of Elrood Sector. When the Moff died in a routine space accident, Andal found himself promoted into his place. He found himself unable to contain the rising tide of piracy and rebellion which sprang up after the destruction of Alderaan, even with three Imperial-class Star Destroyers at his disposal. When the Brazen was destroyed by Alliance forces while in drydock at the Derilyn Space Defense Platform, Moff Andal was removed from his position and re-assigned. (PG3, OE)

Andara
this planet, largest and most influential world of the Andaran System, was also the seat of the system's government. A lush, green world with a temperate climate that allowed agriculture and industry to exist side-by-side, Andara was considered beautiful as well as wealthy. (JQ5)

Andasala
a planet which was a haven for criminals and other underworld operatives. During the early years of the New Republic, the planet was under the control of Valis Lorn. Andasala was originally a mining settlement established by Gesenix Mining. Promising because of the wealth of natural resources available, Andasala became a booming world by virtue of its proximity to Svivren. Its location also brought into direct contact with the Galactic Civil War, as both the Empire and the Alliance fought battles for control of the space lanes around it. These battles continued well after the Battle of Yavin, until Valis Lorn arrived. He nationalized the planet through the use of his criminal henchmen, establishing a "safe" world for its natives. The average day on Andasala lasts 25 standard hours, and its year encompasses 370 local days. (GG11)

Andasala Achievement News
this was the primary news agency on the planet Andasala. (GG11)

Andi's Hill
this low bluff was located near the town of Currahen Crossroad, on the planet Garos IV. (SWJ2)

Ando
this water-covered, Mid Rim world was the second and primary planet of the Ando system, and was the homeworld of the Aqualish race. It was orbited by a pair of moons. During the height of the Galactic Civil War, the planet was tightly controlled by the Empire. Ando was the sight of one of Thrawn's feint attacks in preparation for his attack on Ukio; the attack was led by the Bellicose. Ninety-five percent of the planet was covered by water and there was very little solid land mass, and the Aqualish have adapted by living in sailing ships or on the small islands. The islands themselves were often nothing more that hummocks in a swampy ecosystem, and were shrouded with an acrid, steamy mist. There was at one time a sister planet to Ando, but the Aqualish wars left it barren and blasted soon after they discovered space travel. During the Yuuzhan Vong invasion of the galaxy, Ando was one of the first planets which were "spared" in return for a live Jedi Knight. Unfortunately for Dorsk 82, he was killed by the Aqualish when he tried to protect the droids which worked on the planet. Ando eventually fell to the Yuuzhan Vong. (DFR, TLC, GG4, MA, EVC, PH, FH3)

Ando
this star, located in the Mid Rim, was the central body of the Ando System. (PH)

Ando Demilitarization Observation Group
this group of Jedi Knights, acting on a request from the Galactic Senate, oversaw the elimination of weapons and arms among the various Aqualish factions and races on the planet Ando, many decades before the Clone Wars. (DFR)

Ando Overland
this was one of the most famous podraces of the Old Republic, rivalled only by the Boonta Eve Classic. Like the Ando Prime Centrum, the Ando Overland took place on the frozen world of Ando Prime. Like the Boonta, the Ando Overland was sponsored by the Hutts of the Desilijic clan. Because of this, both races were postponed indefinitely when Zorba the Hutt was arrested on Kip, due to the lack of funding being provided by the Hutts. (GMR2, HNN4)

Ando Prime
this cold, frozen world was the third planet in the Ando System, and the site of a podracing course that challenged racers with a variety of icy, nearly frictionless surfaces. The planet's primary inhabitants were the Bendu monks, who lived and worked in the Andobi Mountains. More modern settlements sprang up to the south of the mountains, and the villagers built a huge water pipeline and pump system to bring mountain spring water to their growing cities. The podraces that began here were originally staged to entertain the laborers who were building the pipelines, which took nearly a decade to complete. (RAC, PH)

Ando Prime Centrum
this is the primary city found on the planet Ando Prime. (RAC)

Ando Prime Centrum
this was one of several pro-circuit podraces run on the planet Ando Prime, during the last decades of the Old Republic. (RAC)

Ando Project
this was the name of the Imperial operation geared toward harvesting Andoan mineral-fish for use in cheaply extracting certain minerals needed for the production of laser weapons. The mineral-fish were collected by the Bountiful and processed for shipment aboard the Eclipse freighter to Uridia. Once on the arid moon, the mineral-fish were adapted for life there in order to help the Empire process uridium from the ground. The project was disrupted by a team of Alliance agents from Chiron Base, after Captain Amarith received a tipoff on the Imperial activities on Ando. (SWJ11)

Andoan Ale
green, alcoholic beverage. (TME)

Andoan Colonial
this was the primary news and media agency found on the planet Ando, during the last decades of the Old Republic. (SWI67)

Andoan Free Colonies
this collection of Mid-Rim worlds was colonized by the Aqualish some seventy years before the onset of the Clone Wars. Made up of fifteen member worlds and led by Andosha II, the Free Colonies did not support the secession of Ando from the Old Republic, remaining loyal to the Republic despite the actions of their parent worlds. (HNN4)

Andoan Marsh Lizard
this large predator terrorized the swamps which bordered on the coastlines of the planet Ando. Measuring up to four and a half meters in length, these beasts were ambush predators which hung just below the surface of the water with just their eyes breaking the surface. Their front legs ended in clawed paws, while their rear legs were large paddles used for locomotion. Their flat tail served as a third paddle and as a rudder. (SWJ11)

Andoan Mineral-fish
native to the planet Ando, this large shellfish could reach sizes of up to a meter in length. Classified by zoologists as a crustacean, the mineral-fish had outer shells which were formed from a variety of valuable minerals and ores, making them a cheap source of raw materials. They have advanced bio-chemical processing abilities, as evidenced by the rate at which they add to their shells. The average mineral-fish lives only five years, but in that time they grow quickly. The Empire was interested in the fish for two reasons: the ores in the shell were used to form war materiel, and scientists wanted to learn how they processed raw material. Unfortunately, no one has been able to duplicate the mineral-fish's abilities. (COG, PH)

Andoan Wine
this distinctive wine was produced on Ando, and was aged in heavt casks. (SWJ15)

Andobi Exa
this was the capital city of the planet Andosha II. (HNN4)

Andobi Mountain Run
this was one of several pro-circuit podraces run on the planet Ando Prime, during the last decades of the Old Republic. (RAC)

Andor provided few clues about Jervis' location, and was eventually turned over to the Coruscant police force. (BH)

Andora
this planet was known for its banks, which catered to an elite and secretive clientele. Note that this may be a misspelling of Andara. (JQ5)

Andoran
this man was a regular patron of Didi Oddo's café, some twelve years before the Battle of Naboo. (DH)

Andosha II
this was one of several worlds which were colonized by the Aqualish, as part of the political body known as the Andoan Free Colonies. In the years leading up to the Clone Wars, Andosha II was one of the first Aqualish planets to denounce the secession of the planet Ando, instead remaining loyal to the Old Republic. (HNN4)

Andov Syn
Andov Syn was one of the most famous Kerestians in history. Unfortunately, Syn was famous because he was a ruthless, deadly mercenary who could be hired to perform just about any job. Syn, who wore ornate battle armor and traveled in a jet-black space yacht known as Syn's Shadow, was once hired by a group of pirates who were trying to raid the mining colony on Adim. The miners had hired a group of mercenaries to protect them, but Syn eliminated them all singlehandedly. Very few individuals knew that the name Andov Syn was an alias used by the notoritous bounty hunter Nariss Siv Loqesh. (GG12, WBC, SWG6)

Andra
this ball of molten rock was the innermost planet in the Caridan System. (PH)

Andra
this woman was the sole member of the POWER party, on the planet Telos, some twelve years before the Battle of Naboo. However, she was no less determined than an entire politcal party to ensure that Telos wasn't turned into an industrial wasteland. Therefore, when Qui-Gon Jinn and Obi-Wan Kenobi revealed that Xanatos was using UniFy as a front for Offworld Mining, she agreed to help them bring Xanatos to justice. She and her cohort, Denetrus, helped the Jedi expose Xanatos and his plans by showing video of the Sacred Pools during a Katharsis game. Xanatos had been using the pools - which were located in a protected, global park - as dumping grounds for the toxic wastes developed during the mining of malab and other ores. After Xanatos was defeated, Andra and Denetrus began to fall in love. They later married, and worked with the Chun family to try and save Telos. Andra realized that Telos could not be saved, and joined Uni in coming up with the idea of the BioCruiser. Den supported her efforts, and the couple eventually moved aboard the ship. (DOR, JAD)

Andrakles, Erkas
this man was a walking encyclopedia of knowledge about the Koornacht Cluster, during the early years of the New Republic. After being expelled from Condular's Grand Astrocartographic Institute, he found work as an astrocartographer for several large corporations before setting out on his own. Andrakles claimed to have found a crashed ship on the planet J't'p'tan, a ship that Farlax Sector authorities denied even existed. Andrakles claimed that the strange ship was made of a coral-like substance, and was of organic nature. Years later, it was assumed that Andrakles' ship was a coralskipper, once used by Yuuzhan Vong scouts. (WOTC)

Andras Pell

Andrasta
this Firespray-class starship was owned by Eamon Azzameen. (XWA)

Andray
this Imperial Moff was one of the few remaining Imperial leaders who survived the death of Grand Admiral Thrawn and the wave of battles that followed it. Ten years after Thrawn's death, Andray met with Admiral Pellaeon and Moff Disra to discuss a negotiated peace treaty with the New Republic. At first he thought Pellaeon was joking about trying to surrender to the Republic. (SOP)

Andreya, Lesle
this woman was a native of the planet Neree. At one time, she was an intelligence agent with the Alliance. However, after the Battle of Endor, she deserted her position and began selling New Republic computer files to the highest bidder. She was last seen on Nal Hutta, but she had the uncanny ability to blend in with any crowd. Only her Neree accent tended to give her away. (WBC)

Andrid
this Imperial Army General was part of the team assembled by Darth Vader to guard the laboratory on Belderone, and to subjugate the planet Kulthis, during the height of the Galactic Civil War. He scoffed at Vader's adherence to the Force as a source of power, and often felt the Dark Lord's wrath. When he learned that Luke Skywalker and Leia Organa were on Belderone, General Andrid took matters into his own hands, hoping to capture them for himself and earn the favor of the Emperor. His spies were killed trying to capture the two rebels, and Andrid's actions were brought to the attention of Lord Vader. In anger, Vader used the Force to strangle Andrid, crushing his windpipe and killing him. (LTA1, MCA3)

Andrim Shipyards

Andrim, Jestra
this woman was a member of the wealthy House Andrim, and a native of the planet Kuat, during the height of the Galactic Civil War. (CCW)

Andris
this white spice variety is found on the planet Sevarcos. It is much more abundant than the black, Carsunum variety. Andris is used as a flavor enhancer and preservative, although it has been claimed that the spice can induce euphoric feelings. It was discovered that andris which was stored in deep, intense cold had enhanced effects. (SWJ2, TPS, ROM)

Andris Moon
this was the name of the immense, repulsor-equipped galley owned by Lord Cassius Nolath Rha. The Sevarcos spice lord's ship was kept off the ground by its repulsors, but lateral movement was supplied the doznes of oar-shaped impellers which were operated by a mixture of slves and prisoners. The craft's primary purpose was the collection and processing of the two spices found on Sevarcos, andris and carsunum. (SWJ2)

Andron System
this planetary system which contains Aralia. (GG4)

AndroosinLiann

this man was a holocamera operator who often worked with Hailey LaMelle on Namore. The pair was captured by planetary officials when they tried to film a payoff between Prefect Gerom and Dasar Zorm. (HR)

Andru
this man was one of the many miners who worked on Katanos VII, during the years leading up to the Clone Wars. Andru was sent with his son, Jing, to greet Jedi Master Lunis and his apprentice, Obs Kaj, when the pair traveled to Katanos VII to investigate a possible link to the Separatist plan to produce clones. He was prepared to follow Kram into battle, in order to ensure that the miners received the bounties placed on their heads by Count Dooku. However, he was unprepared when Jing got to close to the fighting, and was killed. He realized that the Jedi weren't the monsters they had been made out to be by Dooku, and he allowed Obs to escape. This action led to Obs being shot down by Dooku's forces in orbit around Katanos VII, and Dooku paid just half the bounty to Kram for Master Lunis. This left the miners virtually creditless, as well as under suspicion for the deaths of the two Jedi. Kram blamed their fate on Andru's weakness, and ordered the miners to disband and flee for their lives. (T19)

Andrus, Drea
this alias was used by Bria Tharen, when she and Han Solo returned to Corellia after escaping from Ylesia. Drea was the wife of Janil Andrus. (TPS)

She met Luke Skywalker in the Mos Eisley cantina some years after the Battle of Yavin, and helped him track a cargo of squills to the Jawas. Luke contracted the disease, and they were captured by Imperial forces. They discovered that the Empire had manufactured Bledsoe's Disease to make it easier for Imperial agents to locate Alliance bases. (CSWEA)

And-Yees
this male Gran was wanted for a variety of assassinations and murders during the years following the Battle of Naboo. And-Yees was considered a rogue who committed his killings based on a personal need for action, rather than a political or corporate motivation. A bounty was placed on his head by the Republic Security Force. And-Yees was captured on the Outland Transit Station by Jango Fett and brought in for the bounty on his head. (BH)

Anea
this was a common name among Cerean females. Unlike their male counterparts, Cerean females use a single name unless they became a bond-wife.

Anf Dec
this Colicoid was the Captain of a diplomatic convoy which was targetted for ambush by the slave raider Krayn some four years after the Battle of Naboo. Despite their misgivings, the Colicoids had asked the Jedi Knights to accompany Anf Dec's convoy, in an effort to protect them from an ambush. Anf Dec reluctantly allowed Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker aboard his ship, but openly disregarded their positions. However, when Krayn finally attacked, Anf Dec discovered that his own crew was woefully unprepared for battle, and his ship was quickly disabled. Anf Dec allowed the Jedi to take a G-class shuttle and infiltrate Krayn's ship, hoping to escape with his ships intact. Anakin later discovered, after being captured by Krayn and sent to the Spice Mines of Kessel, that Anf Dec was the Colicoids' primary negotiator, working with Krayn to corner the spice processing market. (JQ)

Angel
these creatures, rumored to exist on the moons of Iego, were considered the nost beautiful creatures in the galaxy, although very few beings have ever actually seen one. The University fo Sanbra officially named these beings the Diathim, after an investigation was launched to uncover the truth about Iego. (SW1, WOTC)

Angel
this was the name used by Aunuanna to describe her daugher, Aurra Sing. (ETM)

Angeles, Pike
this Lorrdian man joined the Alliance after completing two tours of duty with the Imperial Navy, when he learned that slavery was almost fully sanctioned by the Empire he served. This went against everything he believed, and so he defected. He was assigned to the Y-Wing squadrons on Dantooine, where he was partnered with the astromech R2-S4. He also brought with him an impressive knowledge of Imperial codes and schematics, and longed to become a field agent. After winning R2-D2 from Captain Raymus Antilles in a sabacc match, Angeles traded the droid for a position as a deep-cover agent. Airen Cracken, a participant in the game, placed Pike back into Imperial service as a starship engineer. His Lorrdian heritage allowed him to assume virtually an identity at will, which allowed him to re-enter Imperial service without being recognized. He used his position to gain access to backwater Imperial bases, and simply stole ships that had come in for service. His charismatic personality allowed him to talk his way out of explaining the theft, and provided the Alliance with much-needed starships. His full Lorrdian name was Shen-and-Gretta Pikeual-Angeles of Lorrd. (CRO)

Angelus
this Alliance frigate patrolled the deepest regions of the known galaxy, during the height of the Galactic Civil War. C-3PO found a number of holgraphic messages hidden in R2-D2's memory banks while serving on this frigate, during the early years of the New Republic. (T10)

Angerian Fishak Surprise

Anglebay Station
this medical facility was located on Telos-4, during the height of the New Order. During the Galactic Civil War, the administrators of the medical station tried to remain neutral, offering their services to either side of the conflict. In the wake of the Battle of Yavin, Anglebay Station was destroyed by Valance the Hunter. (SWMW)

Angler
this creature, native to the fourth moon of Yavin, was a spider-like crustaceal mollusk with long legs attached to a small body. It draped itself over the exposed roots of the Massassi trees, with the ends of its legs in the water of a river or stream. When a fish swam too close to the angler, it thrust its legs out at the fish, spearing it with the pointed ends. The legs then worked in unison to grab the fish and draw it into the angler's mouth. (ISU, WSW)

Anglethorn, Darial
this fiery, red-haired woman was a native of the planet Beheboth, and was a member of a moisture farming family during the height of the New Order. She also served as the leader of the rebel band that opposed those who would steal the planet's water. When Gideon Longspar was defeated by Luke Skywalker in combat, Darial was able to destroy the water-holding tanks, restoring Beheboth's trapped water supply. Some four years later, Darial became Beheboth's representative to the New Republic Senate, making the trip to Coruscant several times a year to ensure that Beheboth was well-represented. When she was on her homeworld, Darial served as the peacekeeper of the city of Prosperity. It was during this time that Luke Skywalker returned to Beheboth, only to discover that Darial had been injured in an attack. It was while trying to stabilize her that Luke discovered Darial had a connection to the Force, when she called out for his help. Darial had stumbled upon the makeshift laboratory of Mils Giel, who had been breeding a dangerous variant of the Tirrith for use as a biological weapon. She was returned to Prosperity and eventually recovered from her injuries, and was able to provide Luke with enough information for him to begin a search for Giel. (LTA3, MC66, PH)

Angor Farn
this Bith worked for Sleeft Docking Bay Maintenance until he accidentally checked out the wrong freighter. The freighter he acquired was full of top-of-the-line droid parts stolen from Notsub Shipping by Sleeft.

Angroosh
a timid, blue-haired creature. (CFG)

Anguilla
this race of intelligent ocean-dwellers was native to the planet Alluuvia. The Anguilla had long, eel-like bodies which were well-muscled, and they had long arms and powerful hands. At the time of their discovery, shortly after the Battle of Yavin, the Anguilla were a primitive culture which had no notion of civilization as thought of by most humans. They were nomadic hunters, following the migrations of the fish schools in order to maintain a steady food supply. The leaders of each Anguilla community were determined in tests of strength. (OE)

Anis
this Anzati assassin agreed to train the young Aurra Sing, who was a dancing girl at the time, for Wallanooga the Hutt, despite the fact that she was not of the Anzati people. Anis agreed only because his people owed Wallanooga a large debt. As he aged, Anis remained a good leader to the Anzati, until he was murdered by Torgo Tahn. A bounty was placed on Torgo Tahn's head, which was later claimed by Aurra Sing. (ASNG)

Anjeri, Padija
this Alderaanian woman contacted Drake Paulsen on Omman, and offered him 30,000 credits to transport her offworld immediately. Shortly after the Battle of Hoth, she and her team of anthropologists were trying to return a Twi'leki artifact to Ryloth before a group of Imperial agents could steal it from her. Padjia had studied at Alderaan University, and joined the Alliance after the destruction of her homeworld. She was recruited into the Alliance by one of her teachers, Oll Maa'cabe. She worked with her father, Colonel Renz, although she kept her mother's maiden name as was the Alderaanian tradition for an only daughter. It also allowed her to honor her mother's Alderaanian heritage. The Imperial hoped to use the crystallite skulls to bribe the Twi'leki government into an alliance. The Alliance to Restore the Republic caught wind of the Empire's plans, and hired Doctor Anjeri to recover the skulls in order to keep the Twi'leks from joining the Empire. (SWJ12)

Anjet Okeco
this being was a HoloNet reporter, working in the Jrade District of Coruscant during the last years of the Old Republic. (HNN4)

Ank Kit'aar
this Outer Rim planet was located in the Druess Sector. (CRO)

Ankarres Sapphire
this remarkable jewel was supposed to have special healing abilities. An individual who touched an injured limb with the stone soon found the wound healed. The stone was owned by Dom Pricina, until she failed to keep a vigilant watch over it while traveling on the Kuari Princess. The droid 4-LOM initially took it from her possession in order to protect it, but then realized that it could steal the stone without being caught. The droid later fenced the stone on Darlyn Boda, beginning its foray into the criminal world. When 4-LOM returned to Darlyn Boda with the survivors of the Bright Hope, he found that the stone had never been sold, so he reclaimed it and took it to his partner, Zuckuss. The Gand was recovering from breathing oxygen, and 4-LOM reasoned the stone might help him. 4-LOM also used the stone to help Samoc Farr. (TBH)

Ankkox
this immense saurian was native to the jungles of Haruun Kal. Twice the size of a greasser, the ankkox was a lumbering beast whose wide body was held just above the ground on six stout legs. The dorsal shell of an ankkox was almost four meters across, and protected its heavy body. The crown shell protected the neck and skull of the beast. When in danger, the ankkox could retract its legs and head into its dorsal shell. The crown shell fit into a gap in the dorsal shell, providing the ankkox with incredible protection against attack or - as was more common on Haruun Kal - the noxious gases which spewed from its active volcanoes. The Korunnai used ankkoxes as mounts, bolting a chair to the crown shell for a driver and using the dorsal shell as a platform for a weapon or a howdah. The only part of the ankkox's body which was not protected by armor plating was the thick tail, which was tipped with a heavy ball of armor. The ankkox used this tail as its primary weapon, using incredible muscle control to swing the ball of armor at its attacker. The Korunnai warriors regarded the ankkox as the apex predator of the jungles, and many a Korunnai youth tried to acquire the tail-ball of an ankkox as the ultimate symbol of their prowess: dangerous to acquire, difficult to use, but deadly in action. (SHPT)

Ankkoxen
this was the term used to describe two or more ankkox. (E3N)

Ankura
this is one of the two major races of the Gungan species. Characterized by their hooded eyes, green skin, and small haillu, the Ankura were also quite secretive and aloof. The Ankura remained largely separate from their Otolla brethren until Boss Nass - an Akuran - decided to align himself with the Otolla in order to disseminate technology and skills. The partnership eventually led the construction of Otoh Gunga. (IG1)

Ankus
this planet, covered with rolling plains, was the homeworld of the Cragmoloid race. It was located in the Unknown Regions, in close proximity to Ord Mantell. (GMR6, UANT)

Anky Fremp
a Sionian Skup living on Nar Shaddaa, Anky Fremp was one of the first beings to befriend Greedo. (DE1, HFG)

Anlage
this Imperial-class Star Destroyer was being refitted at Fondor, for use as part of the New Republic fleet, when the Yuuzhan Vong attacked the system. The Anlage was destroyed by the suicide runs of several groups of coralskippers, which holed the ship and left her broken and adrift. (JE)

Ann

Ann Gella
this blue-skinned Rutian Twi'lek female was part of Sebulba's personal entourage, purchased by the Dug from the Hutts as a yobana, or personal masseuse. Along with her twin sister Tann, Ann always gave the dangerous Dug a massage prior to a pod race. Ann had enlisted the help of Mars Guo, in an effort to escape from Sebulba's slavery. (YJC1, IS1, IG1, NEGC)

Annadale Fayde
this rock balladeer was often melancholy in her lyrics, and her career was keenly observed. She never used the same group of backing musicians twice. She resembles a Ho'Din. (GG9)

Annaj
this planet was the destination of the Imperial fleet, following the Battle of Endor. It was known as Cannij Barr to the Ayrou of nearby Maya Kovel. Annaj was located two days from Endor, and was the nearest Imperial sector capital to Endor. New Republic military leaders believed that the Star Destroyer Unrepentant acquired data from the aftermath of the Battle of Endor and then jumped to Annaj to report its findings. The planet was known to exist on most astrogation computer systems at coordinates (-334, -697, 16), and was first colonized about 300 years before the Battle of Yavin. It was named the Moddell Sector capital originally by the Old Republic about fifty years before the Battle of Yavin, after the Old Republic incorporated the sectors of the Inner Zuma. In the wake of the Battle of Endor and the loss on Imperial convoys into and out of the Moddell Sector, Annaj was more less forgotten by the rest of the galaxy. (TB, GMR9, TBSB)

Annaj House of Detention
this was the primary prison facility found on the planet Annaj. (GMR9)

Annaj-Houche Run
this short hyperspace lane connected the planet Annaj and the Moddell Sector of the galaxy with the planet Houche. In between these two worlds, the Run made a stop at Vasha. (GMR9)

Annaji Chromofly
this moth-like creature was native to the planet Annaj, where it grew to have a wingspan of nearly half a meter. During the summer months, the four-winged chromoflies gathered in huge swarms to mate, and their mating flights were considered one of the planet's natural wonders. (GMR9)

Annals of the Republic
this was one of the many exhibit wings found in the Galactic Museum on Coruscant. It was breifly renamed "The New Crder: The Glories of the Next Thousand Generations" during the rule of Emperor Palpatine. (CCW)

Annance
this Imperial Captain was known to be extremely patient. He served as the commander of the Empire Forever, taking Advisor Coh Veshiv on several missions. Annance had only been with Veshiv for three months before his patience began to run out. Shortly afterward, Veshiv was captured by the crew of the Far Orbit. Annance would have normally been suspicious of Captain Vedij's orders to take over for him on Veshiv's fact-finding mission in the Ringali Shell, but had become so weary of Veshiv's presence that he considered the request a stroke of luck and gladly turned Veshiv over. (FOP)

Annatowa
this was a noted Clawdite. (GMR10)

Annealer
this was one of the three Acclamator-class troopships that was dispatched by the Old Republic to help defend the planet Duro, during the height of the Clone Wars. The ship and its companions were all destroyed in battle, as General Grievous showed that he was a master tactician. (SWI75)

Annealing
this was the name of the process by which the energy-charged seeds of the boras trees of Zonama Sekot were shaped by mature boras trees into new forms of boras. The creation of a Sekotan starship from seed-partners mimicked this process, as the forged seed-partners became seed-disks, which were then molded to airframes and combined with technology to form starships. (RP)

Annihilator
this was the common name of BlasTech's DT-57 blaster. (VD3)

Annihilator
this was the name, used by the natives of the planet Junction 5, to describe the supposed superweapon that had been developed by their neighbors on the moon Delaluna. Despite the incredible fear of the weapon maintained by the natives of Junction 5, the leaders of the government on Delaluna denied its very existence. In reality, there was no Annihilator weapon. Cilia Dil and her band of rebels managed to expose the truth in a daring raid on Delaluna's Minstry of Offense and Defense, in which they found the Annihilator plans in a files marked "Misinformation." The existence of the Annihilator was a ruse used by the Guardians to keep themselves in power. It was Lorian Nod himself who came up with the idea of the Annihilator, as part of his plans to take control of Junction 5 for himself. (LOJ)

Annihilator
this Imperial-class Star Destroyer was part of Governor Newen Streeg's fleet, which patrolled the Sisar Run during the last years of the New Order. The Annihilator skimmed the border of Hutt space during its regular patrols, and it nearly captured Drek Drednar and his pirate gang before they disappeared into the Quintar Nebula. (SSR, SWJ5)

this being was a noted entertainer during the last years of the Old Republic. When the Clone Wars broke out, Annloc joined Jasod Revoc's Galactic Revue and traveled across the galaxy to entertain the troops of the Grand Army of the Republic. (MJH)

Annon, Blix
this plump man was a Senator to the Old Republic some 55 years before the Clone Wars. Known for his expensive and opulent tastes, Senator Annon was nevertheless very generous in his support to the Jedi Order, both financially and practically. Thus, he came to believe that he could call on the Order whenever he needed help, as repayment for his generosity. During a mission he undertook at the time, Senator Annon was accompanied by Jedi Master Dooku and his Padawan, Qui-Gon Jinn. Their ship was apprehended by a pirate, who had used the disabled ship of Senator Galim Eddawan as bait. In the ensuing battle, the pirate - who revealed himself to be Lorian Nod - captured Senator Annon and fled into space. Unfortunately for Senator Annon, the strain of being attacked and kidnapped was too much for his aging body. He died of a heart attack shortly after his capture, before Nod could ransom him back to his constituents. (LOJ)

Annoo
an agricultural planet, Annoo was known as the homeworld of the Annoo-dat race. The planet was thrown into turmoil a few years before the onset of the Clone Wars. General Ashaar Khorda led a military coup to overthrow the government, but was thwarted by the forces of the Old Republic. General Khorda fled into hiding, and the Republic installed its own government on Annoo. (DCAR, ZW, OWS)

Annoo-dat
a species of reptilian humanoids native to the planet Annoo, these hulking humanoids have drowsy eyes, flat noses, and spots on their faces. Perhaps the most distinctive feature of the Annoo-dat physiology was the fact that each individual had four eyes, allowing them to see into a variety of spectra and with incredible clarity. The crown of the Annoo-dat head was ringed with short horns, and their chins ended in a bony point. A thick tail helped to counterbalance their long bodies, and the legs of an Annoo-dat had two knee joints. The spots on their face changed color with their emotional state, getting brighter as an individual became angrier. (DCAR, ZW, OWS)

Annowiskri
this being served as a medic, working for Talon Karrde aboard the Wild Kaarde. (VOF)

Anoat
the primary planet in the Anoat System of the Anoat Sector, Anoat was at one time among the inhabited planets located along the Ison Corridor. However, it was abandoned sometime before the Galactic Civil War after toxic waste rendered the ecosystem unable to sustain life. (ESB, JS, CHRN, WOA33)

Anoat City
this was primary city on the planet Anoat, although it was abandoned many years before the Galactic Civil War. What remained behind was a collection of duracrete and durasteel rubble that was covered with toxic sludge. Moff Rebus hid there, in an attempt to avoid Kyle Katarn, just prior to the Battle of Yavin. (DF, WOA33)

Anoat Malted
this is a rich, sweet beverage has a deep, smoky flavor. (SH)

Anoat Sector
this was one of the three sectors of the galaxy that made up the Greater Javin area of the Outer Rim Territories. The original boundaries of the Anoat Sector included the area now known as the Yarith Sector, encompassing the entire area of space containing the Kiax and Ivax Nebulas. Because much of the sector was mapped by Ecclessis Figg himself, he petitioned the Old Republic to name the sector 'Ecclessis'. However, investigation of public records revealed an earlier survey team had already given it the name 'Anoat'. Generations later, the Old Republic split the burgeoning Anoat Sector into two parts, splitting the sector so that each part contained one of the two parts of the Twin Nebulae. The Anoat Sector contained those worlds surrounding the Ivax Nebula, while the other sector would include the planets near the Kiax Nebula. The heirs of Ecclessis and Yarith Figg argued that the Republic was trying to artificially limit their expansion in the region and curb their economic control of the Anoat Sector, but their appeals fell short of swaying the politicians. They managed to win a small victory, however, when the Kiax Nebula sector was named Yarith Sector, after Yarith Figg. However, the border between the Anoat and Yarith Sectors meandered in and out, cutting off certain planets from existing political allegiances to minimize local power. (WOA33)

Anoat System
this star system contained the planets Anoat, Gentes, and Deyer. It was here that the Imperial fleet chased the Millennium Falcon after it escaped from the Hoth asteroid field, in the wake of the Battle of Hoth. During the time of the New Republic, the system is relatively deserted. It is located near the Hoth System. Note that Rebellion places the Anoat System in the Churba Sector, while the Dark Side Sourcebook places it in the Anoat Sector. (ESB, JS, GG2, DSSB, WOA33)

Anobis
this planet was located near Ord Mantell, in the Mid Rim. In addition to a colony of Zabraks, there were two main groups of native humans: those that lived and worked in the mountain mines, and those that lived and worked in the lowland plains. The miners depended heavily on trade in order to survive, and valued their relationship with the Empire. The farmers, however, were self-sufficient, and resented the controls imposed by Imperial law. At the height of the Galactic Civil War, the farmers wanted to join the Alliance, but the miners feared the loss of their trade. An intense civil war broke out, and lasted for nearly 25 years before Han Solo met with the leaders of both groups. Han was acting as the Grand Marshall of the 93rd Blockade Runners Derby on Ord Mantell. (ROM, WOTC)

Anod
this man was the younger brother of Prince Denid, of the planet Velmor. When the Empire subjugated Velmor and slew their parents, the boys were split up. Denid was taken by Jedidiah into hiding, while Anod was groomed by the Imperials to become the next King, albeit an Imperial one. Anod was killed by Captain Traal, his Imperial attache', when he tried to kill Denid at the behest of Zelor. Traal discovered that Loren and Korl Marcus were actually Leia Organa and Luke Skywalker in disguise, and wanted them alive. She shot Anod in the ensuing confusion. (LTA2, MC49)

Anointed People
this was the name used by a race of reptilian humanoids which had reached a feudal level of society by the era of the New Order. They were native to the planet Abonshee, which they called Masterhome, and had a feudal society which split their people into two classes: the Godlings, who were the rulers and priests of the planet; and the Unwashed, which were the serfs and laborers. All of the Anointed People were ruled a supreme leader known as the Godking. Despite their fearsome appearance and disparate societies, there were very few wars in their history. After Imperial Lord Dixton tried to take control of the Godking, shortly after the Battle of Yavin, the Godking aligned the Anointed People with the Alliance. The Godlings assisted a group of Alliance agents in capturing Dixton and ensuring the Anointed Peoples' freedom. (SWCP, MB, AE)

Anomid
a humanoid alien race native to the Yablari System, the Anomid are born without vocal cords. This requires that the immature Anomid wear complex masks which synthesize the sounds necessary for communication with others. These masks are very large, covering all but the Anomid's eyes and forehead. They dress in long, hooded robes made from pure dendrite. Most Anomids have pale, translucent skin and wide eyes, and their ears are large and leaf-like in shape. Anomids have six toes on each foot. Their technology is fairly sophisticated, and the Anomid have become very wealthy selling it in the galaxy. A peaceful race, they supported the Old Republic for 15,000 years before the onset of the New Order. Their own political system was divided in its support during the Galactic Civil War, but they sided with the Empire in an effort to meet their homeworlds' needs. (RM, GG12, RD)

Anomid
this was the name given to the native language of the Anomid race, which consisted of an intricate collection of hand and body signals. Because Anomids had six fingers on each hand, this form of sign language was "unpronounceable" by most other races. There was no written element to the Anomid language. (UANT)

Anooba
this creature was a nocturnal, lupine predator native to the near deserts of Tatooine. They were opportunistic feeders that hunted in packs, killing small prey or scavenging off larger kills by other predators as the environment demanded. Each pack was led by a dominant pair. The average anooba weighed more than thirty-five kilograms, and had large ears to help regulate body heat. Their snouts ended in a heavy beak, and their strong jaws allowed them to bite through bone and gristle. Most anoobas were continually hungry, and would often feed until gorged and unable to move. Young anoobas were cared for by the pack for just a year, after which the largest are driven off to fend for themselves. (WSW, WOTC)

Anoon
a common name given to Twi'lek males, this name meant "commander" or "warrior chief". (GCG)

Anoon Bondara
this Twi'lek Jedi Master was a contemporary of Qui-Gon Jinn, and was a master of the teras kasi martial arts. Master Bondara was also the teacher of Darsha Assant. When Darsha was ordered by the Jedi Council to retrieve Oolth the Fondorian from the Crimson Corridor of Coruscant, Master Bondara questioned the Council's objectives in sending the padawan into such dangerous territory. However, he was forced to let her go. When she returned many hours later, without Oolth and speaking of the Fondorian's death, Master Bondara tried to calm her down and asked her to retrace her steps, so that they could determine it Oolth had survived. Unfortunately, they found no trace of Oolth's body, and ended up in the crossfire of Darth Maul's attempt to execute Lorn Pavan. Hoping to buy Darsha and Lorn time to escape, Master Bondara attacked the Sith lord during a speeder chase. Hoping to catch Maul by surprise, Bondara leaped onto his speeder and attempted to disarm Maul. When that failed, Bondara realized that he had only one option. Bondara used his lightsaber to ignited the power cells of Maul's speeder, causing an explosion which took his life but, unfortunately, not Maul's. (DMSH, COD)

Anorik, Dek
this grizzled old smuggler was captured by Imperial forces on Gacerian. In exchange for his freedom, he agreed to lure unsuspecting, greedy salvagers to the Gacerian System, where they could be captured by the Empire and put to work as slaves in the Gacerian gem mines. (PG2)

Anoth
planet on which Han Solo and Leia Organa-Solo "hide" their children during the early years of the New Republic. It is really three fragments on an ancient planet which was destroyed eons ago, and is held together by gravity, orbiting a common center of mass. Two fragments orbit in close proximity, and are virtually uninhabitable. The third fragment is separated from the other two, and is capable of supporting life. Thus, many system cartographers consider Anoth to be the third planet in the Anoth System. The three planetary fragments orbit a small, white dwarf sun. The Anoth fragment has a day which lasts fourteen standard hours, and orbits its sun every 286 local days. Winter took care of the children there, and worked with Admiral Ackbar and Luke Skywalker to prepare defenses. The fortress was breached by Ambassador Furgan's troops, who used MT-ATs to break down the barriers and gain entrance. The base was abandoned for some years after Furgan's attack was thwarted, to see whether knowledge of the planet became widespread. When it didn't Han and Leia began to refurbish the base as a private, well-defended retreat. (JS, COTF, JASB, TNR)

Another Chance
this legendary armory ship was a massive transport ship used to carry all of Alderaan's weapons off-planet. A converted Alderaanian War Frigate, it was programmed to continually jump through hyperspace until called home by Alderaan's council of elders. It was accompanied during this time by three Alderaanian warships, which were slave-circuited together. The Another Chance was manned by a collection of droid workers, programmed to maintain the ship and protect it against unauthorized entry. Many of the stories of ghost ships near the Alderaan system report seeing this ship. The Another Chance was actually recovered by Alliance sympathizers shortly before the Alliance's defeats at Derra IV and Hoth, when Orinn Tathis returned to the Graveyard of Alderaan in an effort to locate the remote calling device. He hoped to turn the weapons carried within the ship over to the Alliance, in an effort to help them fight back against the Empire. (GA, BTS, BW)

this race of beings was noted for its wide range of knowledge and learning. (VD2)

Ansek
a planet. (POC)

Anselm
this man, a native of the planet Baffop, was in charge of prepping Luke Skywalker's X-Wing prior to the Battle of Yavin. During the ensuing years, Anselm moved up the Alliance's ranks as a technical expert. Nine years after Yavin, Anselm served as the lead technical member of the crew sent by Leia Organa Solo to recover the Katana Fleet. (DFR, DFRSB)

Anselmi
this was one of the two races which evolved on the planet Glee Anselm. The Anselmi were adapted to live on the land, unlike their amphibious neighbors, the Nautolan. Because of this, the Anselmi were aggressive when it came to acquiring new territory and protecting their land holdings. Unfortunately, the Nautolans were physically stronger, and often repelled any Anselmi attempts to acquire more land. In general, though, the two races existed peacefully on the planet. (WOTC)

Anselmian
this was the native language of the Anselmi race. (WOTC)

Ansil
this holo-video character was developed on Adarlon. Ansil was a refugee who became the finest sansil player in the galaxy. (GG6)

Ansillivog
a planet. (RPG)

Ansion
this planet was located near Vortex and Bilbringi, and was orbited by two moons. The homeworld of the Ansionian people, Ansion was a world covered with sweeping grasslands and plains. This landscape was often swept by high winds, as there were few mountains to break up the wind. As a result, most species found on the planet were either avians which rode the winds or sure-footed enough to remain on the ground. However, there were stands of trees and sharp, volcanic vents dotting the landscape, breaking the seeming monotony of the plains. Some ten years after the Battle of Naboo, Ansion was one of the first planets to vote to secede from the Old Republic, an event which held great political implications. Unknown to many, Count Dooku and the leaders of the growing secession movement had planned to use Ansion as the first of several planets to actually secede. Hoping that a plethora of planetary alliances would be enforced, Dooku believed that many more planets would follow Ansion and secede, thereby destroying the already fractured Republic. However, the Jedi Knights were dispatched to ensure that Ansion remained part of the Republic. Eventually, an accord between the peoples of the plains and the city dwellers was made to remain with the Republic, forestalling a great turmoil in the Republic. Decades later, Ansion was overrun by the Yuuzhan Vong as they made their way toward Coruscant some twenty-seven years after the Battle of Yavin. (SBS, APS)

Ansionian
this humanoid race was native to the planet Ansion. There were two main races of Ansionians native to the planet, differentiated mainly by physical stature. The dominant race stood just shorter than standard Human stock, while the other race - known as the Gwurran - was much smaller. Wiry and lean, Ansionians were distinguished by their bulging eyes and single nostril, as well as the stripe of fur which sprouted atop their heads and ran down their spine. This fur was a source of pride for individual Ansionians, and each individual had a unique coloration patterns to reveal their individuality. The skin of an Ansionian was yellow in color, and their mouths were filled with fine, sharp teeth. Each hand and foot ended with three digits, but all their fingers and toes were opposable. Their physiology differed greatly from that of a human, and it was known that the average Ansionian had more than one heart. Because of the convex, protruding formation of their eyes, Ansionians could not blink or squint. As a people, Ansionians used only a single name to identify each other. When an individual wanted to display pleasure or approval, an Ansionian would pop their knuckles in rapid succession. (APS)

Ansionian Unity
this was another name for the Unity of Community. (APS)

Ansween
this was the Imperial officer who served as the Commander of the Star Destroyer Right to Rule during the height of the Yuuzhan Vong invasion of the galaxy. (FH3)

anta
this Shyriiwook word was used as the suffix to many Wookiee names. It translated into Basic as "judge" or "leader". It could be attached to a prefix by itself, or combined with other suffixes to form a complete Wookiee name. (GMR10, GCG)

Antab, Rixes
this small-time thief worked on the planet Tatooine, during the years following the Battle of Naboo. He once stole a shipment of chubas that was destined for Jabba the Hutt, which earned him a bounty on his head. Jango Fett later claimed this bounty, when he was on Tatooine to gain an audience with Gardulla the Hutt. (BH)

Antakarian Fire Dancer
this was a potent alcoholic drink. (SPG)

Antar
a huge gas giant located in the Prindaar System. It has six natural satellites, four of which support life. (GG4)

Antar 4
the fourth of six moons orbiting Antar, Antar 4 had an unusual rotational axis that was nearly parallel to its orbital plane. This configuration wreaked havoc on the moon's seasons. It also affected the moon's day/night cycles, as both sides of Antar 4 sometimes existed in daylight when the planet Antar is not eclipsed by its sun. During these eclipse phases, Antar 4 received virtually no light, except what was reflected off other moons. Antar 4 was the homeworld of the Gotal race, who developed sensitive horns which allow them to exist on Antar 4's ever-changing face. Antar 4 was the site of one of the earliest battles of secession, some nine years after the Battle of Naboo. (GG4, HNN4)

Antar 5
this was the fifth moon of the gas giant Antar, and was the site of a Gotal mining operation. (GG4)

Antar Band
this group of experienced smugglers, thieves, and cutthroats was led by Ujin Voli, and was largest rival to the Black Sun interests of Sprax along the Sisar Run. Voli recruited criminals who had formerly worked for other criminal organizations or were former law-enforcement agents. Among the group's membership were the Ishi Tib Zirlig and the Aramandi mercenary Ar'wa Nonshik, two reasons why Sprax chose to leave the Antar Band alone. (SSR)

Antared III
this planet had three major starports, located in the cities of Durollia, Pegg,and Hermos. (GMH)

Antares Six
this New Republic escort frigate, under the command of Syub Snunb, was dispatched to rescue the crew of the Liberator. (DE1)

this star system was known to be the home of a species of poisonous butterflies, which used a stinger to inject an attacker with a deadly toxic. (MC48)

Antarian
this was the native language spoken in the Prindaar System, particularly on the moons of Antar. (EGP)

Antarian Pea
this species of pea-producing vegetable was native to Antar 4. The peas of this plant were considered a staple in the diet of many races. (YDR)

Antarian Rangers
a para-military group based on several planets, the Antarian Rangers were formed by Marus Timpel and Kaskutal on Antar 4, some 600 years before the Battle of Yavin. The mission of the Antarian Rangers was simply to assist and aid the Jedi Knights in any way possible, although they were most often employed as front-line troops in battlezones. They were trained to be masters of any environment, in order to meet the various challenges assigned to them. The Jedi Council refused to comment on their position toward the Antarian Rangers, although they allowed it to continute to grow and expand over the years. Many individual Jedi valued their assistance and dedication, especially in situations where military force was needed. In the coming centuries, as the Jedi Order became more conservative and insular, they began to turn away from the use of separate organizations like the Antarian Rangers. This meant that the amount of work available to the Rangers began to diminish, and the organization was forced to drastically reduce its manpower. During the Clone Wars, the Antarian Rangers were able to briefly expand their efforts in support of the Jedi involvement in the war. Unfortunately, whole groups of Antarian Rangers were killed off, and many of the survivors scattered and went underground. Those that remained loyal to the Jedi found themselves hunted down as part of Emperor Palpatine's Jedi Purge, further reducing the organization's size and scope. Only a few groups managed to survive the Galactic Civil War, but they were openly sought out by Jedi Master Luke Skywalker. In the years following the Battle of Endor, the organization grew slowly, but proved to be invaluable during the formation and protection of the Great River during the Yuuzhan Vong invasion of the galaxy. (WS, WOTC)

Antbbianplourr III
the long-standing Emperor of Eiattu, he was Gror Pernon's brother. He became Emperor during the last years of the Old Republic, and reigned until he died during the Galactic Civil War. It was at this time that he was succeeded by his son, Uthorrferrell Cartha. Antbbianplourr's reign was characterized by the fact that he bartered away his planet's pride and honor in order to maintain his seat during the initial wave of Imperial conquests. (XWWP)

Ante-Endor Association
a group of fanatics who spread propaganda that states the Battle of Endor never took place, and that the Empire still holds sway in the galaxy. The roots of the AEA were based on Mrlsst, spreading from the remnants of Imperial control there. Wedge Antilles and Rogue Squadron were caught up in the AEA's propaganda, and tried to convince its followers of the truth of the Battle of Endor. However, the AEA preached an elaborate tangle of fabrications about the events of the Galactic Civil War, the end result of which dictated an Imperial victory over the Alliance. (XWPA)

Anteevy
a planet locked in perpetual winter, Anteevy was the site of the Imperial robotics construction facility known as Ice Station Beta during the Galactic Civil War. The Empire refined phrik here for use in the Darktrooper program, and also mined a number of other useful ores and minerals. (DF, TCG9)

Antemeridian Sector
this area of the galaxy, adjacent to the Meridian Sector, was allied with the Empire even after the Battle of Endor. Following the fall of Emperor Palpatine, the sector was held in Imperial sway by Moff Getelles, until he was defeated by New Republic forces in the Chorios Systems. (POT)

Antemeridias
this planet was the sector capital of Antemeridian Sector, and the base of operations for Moff Getelles. (POT)

Antenepalp
this was the term used to describe the retractable antennae of the Balosar race. These organic receptors allowed a Balosar to hear things which normal humans could not. Many Balosar criminals used these antenepalps to listen into conversations surreptitiously, retracting them when they needed to avoid attention. (SWDB, SWI70)

Antenna-breaker
this is an underworld slang term which refers to the hired thugs of a crimelord. Antenna-breakers are the goons sent out to collect the fees and interest charged by their employers, and are under order to break the antennae of their victim if they can't pay up. (WBC)

Anthropology of Engineering, The
this work of non-fiction was written by Jo Ewsli, and was based on his experiences with the design and development of the I-7 Howlrunner starfighter. (NEGV)

Anti-Artist Federation
this group of activists caused a stir in the art world of the planet Malastare, during the last decades of the Old Republic. Made up an eclectic mix of beings, the Anti-Artist Federation maintained that much of the art that was being produced wasn't actually art at all. Their mission was to expose these "frauds" who were collecting huges prices for their art, which they was being produced to the detriment of the environment or to inter-species relations. Quite often, the acts of the Anti-Artist Federation resulted in lost revenues for artists, which made the Federation unpopular in certain circles. (BH)

Anti-blaster Energy Field
this type of energy dissipation field was developed by the Empire during the Galactic Civil War. It was concurrently created by I'att Armaments. The theory behind the field was that the energy from a blaster bolt could be absorbed and dispersed across the surface of stormtrooper armor. The problem with the system was that the dispersion created an intense amount of heat that literally cooked the trooper inside the armor shell. I'att Armaments discovered a way to eliminate this problem with the addition of a heat dissipator unit and by imbedding zersium into the body glove worn by troopers. The body glove was also important because it protected the flesh of the trooper; the dissipation field unpredictably damaged living flesh. Moff Eisen Kerioth executed the leaders of I'att Armaments and tried to replicate the design for himself, but was unable to perfect it because Tinian I'att had appropriated several key components. (TFE)

Anticeptin-D
this was one of the potent medical drugs developed for use by the Grand Army of the Republic, during the height of the Clone Wars. (MBS)

Anti-Concepts
this strange form of idea was created by the deity Cold Danda Sire. Anti-concepts were ideas which consumes other ideas. (CSWDW)

Anticoncussion Field Generator
a device which creates a stabilizing field that keeps cargo or passengers from feeling the effects of collisions with energy bolts or physical impacts. They can be starship-sized, or they can be built to protect space stations. These systems are very expensive. They create an umbrella-shaped magnetic field that absorbs the kinetic energy of the objects that hit it. It protects a starship by compressing around the impacting object, absorbing its energy and dispersing it along the rest of the magnetic field. (HSE, DFR, SCRE, CSA)

Anti-Corr 113
this corrosion preventative was used to protect equipment from heat and environmental damage during shipment. It was developed by ColuChem scientists who wanted to transport equipment through the toxic environment of Clak'Dor VII, and soon found its way into galaxy-wide use. It takes decades to break down or evaporate, and can only be removed with powerful chemical solvents. It has the side effect of turning whatever it touches a dull shade of blue. (SWJ9)

Anti-G Couch
this was a full-body protection system used in the starfighters of the Old Republic, to protect pilots from the gravitational forces of sharp turns and high-speed maneuvers. (JT)

Antigrav
any device which counteracts the force of gravity, such as a repulsorlift. (SWN)

Antigrav Ball
this repulsor-fitted sphere is tethered to the ground by chains or thick ropes. Its primary use is as a plant holder, allowing non-native plants to grow above the harsh ground of terraformed worlds. (POT)

Antigrav Drive
any starship power plant which allows the force of gravity to be negated, allowing the ship to rise up and through the atmosphere. They are also called repulsorlift drives, and are used in-system, so that the effects of the hyperdrive are not brought on a planet's inhabitants. (SWN)

Antigrav Lifter
this cargo moving device is used to move heavy boxes and equipment from one place to another. The cargo must be first loaded onto the lifter, which acts like a hand truck. (POT)

Antikra the Egglayer
this was the most important of the Vashan deities. The luminous mandibles of Antikra were considered blessed by the Vashans, since it wsa from the mouth of Antikra that the Vashan people were born. (GMR9)

Antilles
this was one of the most common surnames found among the human population of Corellia. (GMR9)

Antilles Maneuver
named after Wedge Antilles, this starfighter attack maneuver was devised at the Battle of Yavin, in an effort to save Luke Skywalker. In this maneuver, an attacking starship tries to kill an enemy who is in pursuit of a comrade. The attacker approaches the enemy while hidden in front of the comrade. The comrade's ship breaks off at the last moment, leaving the enemy in the sights of the attacker. A quick burst of blaster fire takes the enemy by surprise. (CCG9)

Antilles, Bail
this Old Republic politician was one of the three candidates named to succeed Supreme Chancellor Valorum, after Queen Amidala of Naboo moved for a vote of no-confidence in Valorum's abilities. However, Antilles and Ainlee Teem were both defeated in a general election by Senator Palpatine of Naboo. (SW1, IS1)

Antilles, Barzur
this man was a noted criminal who was incarcerated - and later died - in the Annaj House of Detention. He was one of the many treasure hunters who dedicated part of their life in search of the Tessent, and often answered questions about the artifact from his cell on Annaj. (GMR9)

Antilles, Corellia
this woman was a xenoarchaeologist who spent much of her career searching out potentially dangerous artifacts, retrieving them so that the New Republic could safeguard them. On one mission, Corellia uncovered what she believed to be an ancient Gree device in the jungles of Asation. She spent much of her time in the spaceports of Satikan, hoping to find a crew to help her recover the device from its hiding place. She was forced to hide it when a group of wild Gree attacked her after she took the device from their tribal city. She barely survived the trip to Satikan, and most of her survey crew was killed in the flight. A group of Te Hasan Gree managed to intercept her, and took the device - known as the Khoz'zhak - back to Te Hasa in exchange for credits and a lesser device. When a group of prisoners escaped from the facilities on Delrian, Corellia was among the many beings who were brought in to help handle the crisis. (SWJ8, SWJ14, GCG)

Antilles, Jagged
Wedge's father, Jagged owned the Corellian Inter-System Marketing Station and fuel depot on Gus Treta with his wife, Zena. He and his wife were killed when the Bonestar Pirates, trying to escape from Corellian authorities, purposely lifted off while the refueling lines were still attached to their ship. The resulting explosion threatened to destroy Gus Treta, but Jagged and Zena sacrificed themselves to limit the destruction to their depot. (XWPA)

Antilles, Jon
this Jedi Master was one of the many students trained by the Dark Woman. No one in the Jedi Order believed that Jon Antilles was his real name, since many of his missions involved the infiltration of enemy territory. After attaining the rank of Jedi Master, he refused to take a Padawan learner, choosing instead to roam the galaxy wherever the Force guided him. After each of his missions, which included gainined access to the Bounty Hunter's Guild and bringing known Jedi-killers to justice, the Jedi Temple feared he was dead. Master Antilles, however, always seemed to find a way to return unharmed. Unfortunately for the Jedi Order, Master Antilles died during the early stages of the Clone Wars. He had been part of the team dispatched to recover the antidote to the swamp gas used to destroy life on Ohma-D'un, and had attacked the bounty hunter Durge as soon Master Diath was killed. His attack bought Obi-Wan and Master Fay enough time to track down Asajj Ventress, but Durge was too strong. He forced Master Antilles into the lave, drowning him and burning his body instantly. (RBR)

Antilles, Myri
this girl was the younger daughter of Wedge Antilles and Iella Wessiri. Myri was barely a year old at the time when Luke Skywalker and Mara Jade were married. (U)

Antilles, Raymus
a starship Captain working for the Organa family, Antilles was in command of the Tantive IV for many years as a Captain in the Royal Alderaan Civil Fleet. His tenure extended back to the Clone Wars, when he piloted the ship to Polis Massa after Chancellor Palpatine revealed that he was Darth Sidious and took control of Courscant. Antilles was related to Alderaan's queen. Years later, along with his friend Bail Organa and his daughter, Princess Leia Organa, Antilles was also a supporter of the Alliance. In the wake of the Clone Wars and the birth of twins by Padme' Amidala, Antilles was given ownership of C-3PO and R2-D2, and told to wipe their memory banks clean. Antilles only managed to erase C-3PO's memory, an action that he did often to ensure that no information would ever reveal that Princess Leia was in fact the daughter of Anakin Skywalker. These memory wipes later helped hide that fact that R2-D2 contained the stolen plans to the first Death Star. Antilles was killed by Darth Vader on board the Tantive IV when he refused to divulge the location of the stolen Death Star plans. Vader physically strangled him, in a show of brute strength. Note that in the novelization of Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope, Antilles' name was Colton. Antilles was portrayed by David Ackroyd for the Star Wars Radio Drama on National Public Radio, and by Rohan Nichol in Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith. (SW, SWRN, SWR, JPL, OWS, VD3, E3N)

Antilles, Syal
this woman is better known as Wynssa Starflare, one of the most popular holodrama stars of the New Order. She grew up with her family - which included her younger brother Wedge - in the Corellian System, but was not enamored with the life of a starship mechanic. She longed for more, and before her twentieth birthday, Syal left her family and moved to Coruscant to pursue an acting career. Wedge was seven at the time, and he never got a chance to know her. She changed her name shortly after the death of her parents, and went on to become famous. During a party on Coruscant, she met Soontir Fel, who had been stationed on the planet shortly after the Battle of Yavin. They fell in love almost immediately, and Syal was forced to admit to Fel her true name and relationship to Wedge Antillies. Fel told her that it didn't matter, and they were eventually married. When Fel was tested by Ysanne Isard and was lost at the Battle of Brentaal, Syal fled Coruscant and hid from Imperial reprisal. Fel spent the rest of his career trying to find her. They were reunited shortly before the re-emergence of Grand Admiral Thrawn, and together they gave birth to five children, including a baby boy, whom they named Jagged. After the Yuuzhan Vong began their invasion of the galaxy, the couple retired to the Chiss homeworld of Csilla, where they felt it was safer to live among the Chiss. After many years on Csilla, Syal became much like her Chiss hosts, distrustful of the rest of the galaxy. When Luke Skywalker arrived on Csilla during the search for Zonama Sekot, she openly questioned the motives of his expedition. Her attitude only hardened when her son, Jagged, left Csilla on a fact-finding mission and chose to remain with the New Republic. When Coruscant fell to the Yuuzham Vong, Syal came to believe that the Republic was doomed, and she did not want her family to go down with them. (XWM, HXW, DTR, FH1, FH2)

Antilles, Syal
this young girl was the first daughter of Wedge Antilles and Iella Wessiri, and was named for Wedge's sister. (U)

Antilles, Wedge
born on Corellia, Wedge spent much of his childhood working for his parents on the last planet in the Gus Treta system. Note that the Marvel Comics adaptation of Star Wars: A New Hope indicates that Wedge was a native of Tatooine. His parents, Jagged and Zena, owned a fueling station there, and Wedge became proficient at starship systems. He also gained a great deal of piloting skill there, and was ready to go to the Academy when a pirate ship, the Buzzzer, under the command of Loka Hask, got spooked at the fuel depot when a Corellian Security Force fleet arrived. Hask ordered them to lift off, but the crew forgot to unhook their refeuling coupling before blasting away. The resulting fuel leak was ignited, and Wedge's parents were forced to eject the fueling station in order to save the rest of the station. Note that Star Wars Screen Entertainment software indicates Wedge was away at school when the accident happened, that the accident was caused by smugglers, and that the smuggler's ship was destroyed in the resulting explosion. Both of Wedge's parents were killed in this effort, and Wedge - who was with Booster Terrik at the time - went after the pirates in an old Z-95 Headhunter. Although he managed to destroy the Buzzzer, Wedge's lack of funding led him to start taking all kinds of odd jobs, and was getting nowhere as a smuggler when he decided to join the Alliance. He quickly demonstrated his abilities as a fighter pilot, and also ran a number of reconnaissance and escort missions before being tapped as one of the X-wing pilots in the Battle of Yavin. Since then, Wedge's growing skills have earned him a number of distinctions, the greatest of which came when he was named squadron leader of the famous Rogue Squadron. While with Rogue Squadron, Wedge assisted Lando Calrissian during the Battle of Endor, and helped destroy the incomplete Death Star being built there. He remained as Rogue Leader through the restructuring of Rogue Squadron, and his squadrons provided invaluable support in the battles against Ysanne Isard and Grand Admiral Thrawn. It was during this time that Wedge also developed the idea of Wraith Squadron, which he successfully implemented and modified into a crack infiltration unit. After turning down two promotions, Wedge was promoted to the rank of General about a year before the defeat of Thrawn, and was offered the command of the Star Destroyer Lusankya. He also chose to remain with the Rogues, but was assigned, along with Calrissian, to command the captured Star Destroyers Emancipator and Liberator when Emperor Palpatine's clone emerged from Byss. He fought bravely at Coruscant and Calamari, although the Emancipator was destroyed on Calamari. He later returned to Coruscant, where his primary role in the New Republic was changed from pilot and warrior to General and clean-up supervisor following the near-destruction of the planet. This was a short-lived assignment, though, for his desire to pilot a starship quickly outweighed the ease of being a supervisor. When that effort was launched, Wedge wanted to get back into piloting. He became the escort for the ship which dropped the Eol Sha colonists off at Dantooine, and then was named Qwi Xux' bodyguard. During this time, Wedge began to fall in love with Qwi, while also returning to Rogue Squadron and assisting the Republic in the assault on the Maw Installation. Wedge was assigned to the Lusankya, which served as his base of operations, for the purposes of commanding a special task force. However, after several years of war, Wedge began to realize that he had grown apart from Qwi. What he didn't know was that she felt they had grown apart as well, so they both agreed to end the relationship and go their separate ways. Wedge decided to take a vacation and figure out what to do with his life, when he was chosen by Airen Cracken to lead the delegation to Adumar. Wedge's diplomatic skills were not the greatest, but his gut instincts proved more valuable in swaying the Adumari to join the New Republic. During the mission, he also discovered that he and Iella were in love with each other, and he quickly proposed to her. Iella accepted almost as quickly. Shortly after peace was negotiated between the New Republic and the Imperial Remnant, Wedge retired from active duty, and he and Iella set to work starting their own family. Wedge was eventually succeeded by Gavin Darklighter, although the former pilot provided assistance to Gavin during the Yuuzhan Vong invasion. Wedge served as Rogue Alpha during the struggle against the Vong, piloting a reconnaissance X-Wing to gather data. Shortly after the Battle of Garqi, Wedge discovered that he was not only a father but an uncle as well, after meeting Jagged Fel for the first time. Wedge was eventually promoted to the rank of General, and was given the command of the Mon Mothma during the final stages of the battle against the Yuuzhan Vong. He barely survived Operation Trinity after the Yuuzhan Vong managed to destroy much of the HoloNet, and returned to help plan the defense of Mon Calamari and the Galactic Alliance's final assault on Coruscant. With the surrender of the Yuuzhan Vong at Coruscant, Wedge and many of his contemporaries vowed to retire from the military life once and for all. Note that Marvel Comics' Star Wars series, issue 78, claims that Luke Skywalker and Wedge Antilles were both natives of Tatooine, and were the oldest and best of friends. Wedge was portrayed in Star Wars: Episodes IV through VI, by Dennis Lawson, who replaced Jack Klaff mid-way through production of Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope. Wedge was also portrayed by Don Scardino for the The Empire Strikes Back Radio Drama on National Public Radio. (SW, SCRE, ESBR, HTTE, JS, DA, COTF, XWN, CCG4, WS, SOC, IR, SOA, DTO, DTR, MC78, FP, UF)

Antilles, Zena
Wedge Antilles's mother, Zena was killed near Gus Treta when she and Jagged attempted to limit the firestorm caused by the Bonestar Pirates to their own depot. This effort saved the rest of the station, but ultimately killed them. (XWPA)

Anti-magnetic Polarization Ray
this energy beam was developed to disrupt the magnetic forces holding certain materials together by polarizing individual molecules so that they repelled each other, rather than attracted one another. (MC49)

Anti-Matter Pod
this unusual weapon was part of the arsenal used by the unusual entity known simply as Ship. When ejected from its interior, anti-matter pods drifted outward toward the enemy. When the anti-matter pod came into contact with solid matter, the resulting explosion nullified everything in its blast radius. (MC38)

Anti-orbital Ion Cannon
an ion cannon modified to knock out targets in orbit around a planet or moon. (ZHR)

Antiox Breath Mask
this was brand name of the breath masks produced to allow Kel Dor individuals to travel away from their homeworld of Dorin. The unusual method of attachment, coupled with the isotopes produced by the antiox mask would kill a non-Kel Dor being in a short period of time. (UANT)

Antipose IX
the destination of the star yacht Arleen, according to the navigation droid Lando Calrissian rented in the Oseon System. It was part of the Antipose System, and was known for its beautiful, violet skies. (LCM, GMR5)

Antipose XII
another planet in the Antipose System. (LCF)

Anti-Prophet
this is the Ugor term for anything evil in their world, in contrast to the good exemplified by High Prophet Botiv. The Ugors claim that the Squibs were formed from pseudopods of the Anti-Prophet. (SH)

Antiques by Dumas
this small shop was located in Imperial City, on Coruscant, during the last years of the New Order. It was run by the antique weapons collector Plumba, until he was killed by one of Ysanne Isard's agents. (XWMR)

Antiquity
this backwater world was known to be extremely boring, by even the most primitive of space-going cultures. Antiquity was covered with mudflats and shallow seas, broken here and there by sheer mountain ranges. The planet was best known for the teggi fungus which grew in the mud. The average day on Antiquity lasts 23 standard hours, and its year encompasses 372 local days. (POC)

Anti-register
any device which was capable of undoing the recording of a transaction maintained in a transfer register. They were outlawed on many planets, because they could be used to negate important transactions or - worse yet - modify transactions to transfer ownership to another party without payment. (HP)

Antisepsis Field
developed during the last decades of the Old Republic, this specialized energy field was used to sterilize the area around a surgical patient, thereby minimizing the risk of infection. In essence, the antisepsis field killed any cellular body that came into contact with it. This included blood cells and bacteria, as well as any number of viral contagions. (MBS)

Antishock
a drug administered to counteract the effects of physical shock or trauma. (COJ)

Antistatic Generator
this devised was required when an individual needed to work on or near sensitive circuitry or electronics. It ensured that no static energy built up in the immediate area, thereby eliminating the possibility of an electrostatic discharge that could ruin the equipment. (AQ)

Antmuel VI
this planet was famous for the xenoarchaeological finds it yielded, such as the Ch'hosk Cave Drawings discovered by Angrail Ryhl. (HR)

Anton Standish
this New Republic Naval Admiral was the Sector Fleet Commander for the Kalinda System. (TSK)

Antone
this Bakuran technician was assigned to help Jacen, Jaina, and Anakin Solo activate the Drall repulsor during the Starbuster plot. He had a reason to help, since his aunt lived on the planet Bovo Yagen, primary planet around the third star listed on the Starbuster agenda. After the Sacorrian Triad was brought down, Antone remained aboard Centerpoint Station as a technician. It was Antone who discovered that the Station's repulsors would be inoperable without Anakin Solo's help, since every system on board had imprinted itself with his fingerprints, DNA, and brainwaves. (SC, JE)

Antonin
this man was a vigo to the criminal organization Black Sun, during the years leading up to the Clone Wars. A bounty was placed on his head by Dreddon the Hutt, and Jango Fett was hired to capture or kill him. Despite his security measures, Antonin was captured and killed by Fett. Unknown to Fett, Antonin himself had placed a bounty on Dreddon, a job which Zem Wesell completed shortly before Fett could be paid. Both bounty hunters were unable to obtain payment for their respective jobs. (JF)

Anto's Star

Anvon Trig
this was the name of a noted Iotran individual. (UANT)

Anwis Eddicus
this being was a noted former Supreme Chancellor of the Old Republic. Chancellor Eddicus was honored by Bisquit Baron for his contributions, with a commemorative holocube that documented his history being included in many QuickSnack and QuickSnackLite meals. The meals and holocubes were available shortly before the onset of the Clone Wars. (HNN4)

Anx
this was the native language of the Anx race. It was made up of spoken words and low-frequency tones produced by the sinus cavities in the Anx headcrest, which could be heard across great distances. There was also a written version of the Anx language. (UANT)

Anx
native to the planet Gravlex Med, this race of tall humanoids was distinguished by their unusual skull structure. A tall bony ridge extended nearly a meter in length from the back of their head, and their lower jaw also jutted outward with a bony ridge. Anx were exceptionally tall and lanky, standing about four meters in height, with a muscular tail that helped them keep their balance. This physiology pointed their ancestory, as the Anx were descended from herbivores that fed from the chiliox trees. Anx continue to exist as vegetarian ruminants, as each individual processed their chewed cud in no fewer than three separate stomachs. The skin of an Anx was capable of changing color, and the areas around the crest were especially adaptable. The color changes expressed by an Anx's emotions were basic enough that other races and species could understand them, a fact that meant many Anx were poor sabacc players and negotiators. Many politicians took to wearing crest cloaks in order to hide their true emotions. As a species, the Anx were known to be courteous, serene beings who rallied around whatever group they were a part of. Many millennia before the Clone Wars, the Anx discovered interstellar flight, and colonized many of the star systems in their sector. They left behind many small colonies of Anx, some of which eventually died out or were abandoned. One of these settlements, on the planet Shusugaunt, was discovered by xenobiologists of the Old Republic, who believed that the skeletons they found were of an aquatic race of creatures. Further investigation eventually led the Old Republic to discover the Anx on Gravlex Med. During the era of the New Order, Gravlex Med was used as a dumping ground for much of the Empire's toxic waste, and the planet was reduced to a devastated wasteland. The native population of Anx was decimated, and the few survivors fled to the colony worlds established by the Anx millennia before. (SWDB, DW, UANT, GMR7)

Anx Minor
a planet. (NEGC)

Anx Space
this was the term used by the Anx to describe the collection of colony worlds and their star systems that had been populated by the Anx throughout the Raioballo Sector of the galaxy. (GMR7)

Anxarta
this city is located on the northern coast of Anai, on the planet Lianna. It supports a small starport used by private vessels and transport ships. (ML)

Anxarta-class Freighter
manufactured by Sienar Fleet Systems, this light freighter measured 28 meters in length and could transport up to 65 metric tons of cargo. This class of freighters went out of production about ten years before the Battle of Yavin. (SWJ11)

ANx-y
Fabritech's long-range sensor array. (EGV)

ANx-y/2
this sensor cluster was the follow-on model to Fabritech's Anx-y system, adding a lateral scanning array to the package which was used on the T-65 X-Wing. The Anx-y/2 was first used on the Z-10 Seeker. (SWJ5)

ANy-20
Fabritech's active sensor package. (SCRE)

Anya Karu
this Imperial Star Destroyer was once commanded by Aron Harcourt, during the early years of the New Order. The ship was scuttled, and Harcourt relegated to a position of obscurity, after a team of Alliance agents managed to infiltrate and sabotage the ship. The Anya Karu was abandoned by the Empire, rather than returned to drydock for repairs, so that no evidence of the Alliance's success could be exposed. (SWEW)

Anyar
this Anguilla was the leader of the community which agreed to help a team of Alliance agents drive Imperial forces off the planet Alluuvia. However, when he learned that the Radell Mining Corporation wished to establish a settlement on Alluuvia, he became angry with the Alliance team and threatened them. The Ithorian, Iych-thae, intervened and agreed to oversee all of Radell's operations, to ensure that Alluuvia wasn't polluted as Dega was. Anyar reluctantly agreed to allow Radell on the planet, understanding that the planet would be better off with Radell than with Imperial Mining, Limited. (OE)

An'yettu
this ancient Rodian clan was the sworn enemy of the Chattza clan, but chose to remain isolated from much of Rodian politics on their clan holdings, the An'yettu Islands. Navik the Red ensured their isolation by keeping them from expanding beyond the islands. (SPG)

An'yettu Islands
this archipelago was located west of the Betu continent of Rodia, in the Wesessa Sea, and the traditional holdings of the An'yettu clan. (SPG)

Anywhere Room
located on Hologram Fun World, this amusement attraction claimed to be able to transport a visitor to any location in the galaxy. In actually, the Room generated a three-dimensional, fully-interactive hologram of the environment. (GOF4)

Anza
this star was the central body in the Abregado System. (CCW)

Anzat
this planet was the homeworld of the Anzat race of humanoids. Very little was known of this world, as most every explorer or scientist who traveled to Anzat never returned. The Anzati themselves only returned to the planet Anzat in order to reproduce. On many nights during the local year, Anzat experienced intense auroral lights in the sky, an event which many Anzati claimed was the manifestation of the Sea of Memory. (EGA, UANT, RT)

Anzat
a race of humanoids that closely resemble humans, at least externally, the Anzati were more myth than reality to many of the galaxy's inhabitants. Although outwardly similar to humans, internally their composition differed greatly from that of pure human stock. The primary difference was that the Anzati have proboscii hidden inside their cheeks that could be extended out from their nostrils. These proboscii were used to consume the brain of the Anzati's victim. The Anzati placed his face nose-to-nose with its victim, and the proboscii were then extended into the victim's nostrils and then into the brain, where they consumed the brain and all its life energies. The Anzati referred to the brain and its energies as "soup," a reference to the Sea of Memory that was believed to surround the planet Anzat. They were creatures of no real biological rhythm; they simply existed. When they required rest, they dropped into a deep coma-like state. Certain feral species of Anzati also had the ability to exude long, rope-like tendrils that could be used to wrap up a victim and immobilize them for later feeding. It was unknown how long a member of the Anzati race could live, but it was believed that the average lifespan could be measured in millennia. (TME, TJP, GOF5, DRKN, RT, GMR1)

Anzat
this incredibly ancient language was the native tongue of the Anzati people. It was unique to the planet Anzat, and although a written version was known to exist, no samples were ever seen away from the planet. (UANT)

Anzat Spaceport
this was the primary spaceport found on the planet Anzat, during the last decades of the Old Republic. It was filled with a wide range of services for offworlders, since the Anzati were not hospitable to visitors. (RT)

Anzati
this was the word used to describe the Anzat race as a whole, or to refer to multiple members as a group. (GOF4, TME)

Anzella
this name was common among the Kerestian people. (UANT)

A-OIC
this is a misspelling of the droid Doc's designation (used in the last issues of Shadows of the Empire: Evolution). (SEE)

AOI-C
this was the original designation of Massad Thrumble's custom-built medical droid, which he later nicknamed Doc. (SEE)

Aola
this was a common name given to Twi'lek females, and meant "flower" in the Twi'leki language. (GCG)

Aola Blen
this Twi'lek female and her sister, Mala, ruled the trading houses of Thaere Privo many years before the Battle of Naboo. Aola was the younger sister, and was viewed as the more subservient of the pair. Unlike her sister, Aola had a fear of hyperspace travel, and never traveled beyond the borders of the system. When Mala struck and alliance with Riboga the Hutt, Aola refused to meet with the Hutt unless his ships traveled deep into the system. Even then, Aola could not rbing herself to fully trust Riboga. Unknown to the sisters, Riboga played them both against each other, changing his allegiance from one to the other just to watch the balance of power shift in the Thaere System. This angered the Thaereian Military as well as Aola, for both parties hated to see the Hutts gain a stronger hold on the Thaere System. Both Mala and Aola were killed shortly after Riboga fled the Cularin System, and their deaths were characterized as "untimely" by the local population. (LFCW)

Aoma
this name was common among Ithorian females. Although such names do not generally have meaning, Ithorians who studied their race's history learned that the name meant "grassy meadow". (GCG)

Aorala Sensor 100
this was BlasTech's original motion sensor device. (CFG)

Ap
this common Zabrak surname meant "animal herder". (GCG)

Ap Kormar
this alien played center for the Quent Assassins during the years leading up to the Battle of Hoth. After the Assassins defeated the Shad Furies 21-20 in overtime in a match in Imperial City, Ap was attacked and beaten to death by seven humans who claimed to be Furies fans. In reality, the seven were Imperial supporters, working for a distant Moff, who killed Ap as an example to other Alliance sympathizers . His death was nearly prevented by Ytavarg Aleema, but Aleema arrived too late to save Kormar. In anger, Aleema used his shockball equipment to kill the seven attackers. (CRO)

AP/3
this was the model number of an Atgar Blaster Turret. (MBC)

AP127CP
see P127. This is a short description of the Astronav P127 C\course plotter. (IJ)

AP-1-C
this Imperial attack droid was created by Arakyd, shortly after the Battle of Endor. These droids had a humanoid torso, but in place of a head the AP-1-C had a second torso armed with a repeating blaster and an array of sensors. These droids were developed to coordinate the activities of the AP-2 and AP-3 droids. (SWG2)

AP-2
this humanoid attack droid was produced by Arakyd for the Imperial forces fighting the New Republic, shortly after the Battle of Endor. Like the companion AP-3 droid, the AP-2 was designed to receive orders from an AP-1-C droid commanding a pool of soldiers. Highly mobile, the AP-2 was armed with a light repeating blaster, a pair of heavy blasters, a pair of micro-grenade launchers, and a hand-held blaster pistol. A broadband antenna was used to receive command signals from the AP-1-C droid. (SWG2)

AP-3
this barrel-shaped Imperial attack droid was developed by Arakyd during the early years of the New Republic. Designed to act on the orders of the AP-1-C commander, the AP-3 was armed with a blaster cannon, six rocket tubes, and a micro-torpedo launcher. A broadband antenna allowed it to receive signals from the AP-1-C series. (SWG2)

AP-300
this was the model number of Kuat Drive Yards' Asteroid Prospector. At 350 meters in length, the ship was designed to swallow whole asteroids and partially refine them within its holds. The craft was crewed by 500 officers and 36 gunners, and could transport up to fifty passengers and 80,000 metric tons of ore. Because the ores it refined were at least twenty-five percent pure, the AP-300 was armed with eight laser cannons. Four tractor beam projectors assist in moving asteroids into position to bring them aboard. (PP)

APA-5
this was a series of general purpose mess-hall droids manufactured during the early years of the New Republic. Kir Kanos used one to fly a Scimitar Assault Bomber in orbit around Yinchorr, after he fled the planet Phaeda. General Wessel fell for the trick, and brought the bomber aboard the Emperor's Revenge. The bomber was rigged to explode upon opening, taking out the Star Destroyer just after Carnor Jax escaped. (CE)

Apailana
this young woman succeeded Jamillia as the Queen of Naboo when she was just thirteen, during the height of the Clone Wars. Queen Apailana was portrayed by Keisha Castle-Hughes in Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith. (OWS, VD3)

Aparo Sector
this area of the galaxy, with the Wyl Sector, formed the border of the Corporate Sector. It was ruled by Moff Wyrrhem. (CSA)

this device is the primary electronic component activated by pulling the trigger of a blaster. The apas connectors signal the power flux dispersion unit that it is time to release a charge of gas into the Heter valve. (CFG)

APC Array Blaster
this blaster weapon, developed during the last years of the Old Republic, fired a cohesive collection of blaster bolts at a target, giving it a wider pattern of fire that had more power than a single blaster bolt. (RCHC)

APC Repeating Blaster
this was the favored weapon of Trandoshan slavers, during the last years of the Old Republic. (RCHC)

APD-40
a droid produced in the years just prior to the Clone Wars, they were built from xylen chips and gold wiring, which became too expensive. They were replace by C-3 series droids. (RPG)

Apex Incisor
this was a one-shot, anti-vehicle missile produced by Golog-Bertum during the early years of the New Republic. It was a simple weapon to operate: simply point the nose at the intended target, allow the Apex Incisor to gather spectral analysis data, and them arm it. The weapon's internal drives are ignited, and it launched into the air to hunt down the target. The only drawback to this weapon was the intense heat generated at launch, which could severely burn the user if they didn't evacuate the launch area fast enough. (GUN)

APF Missile
this Old Republic missile, developed for use during the Clone Wars, was an anti-personnel fragmentation device that scattered shrapnel across the battlefield in an effort to cut down the droid armies of the Separatists. (SS2)

Aphidale, Tanu
this woman replaced Lanyss Gutierrace as the Personnel Director for the Old Republic's Judicial Department, shortly before the onset of the Clone Wars. (HNN5)

Aphor
a species of tree native to Belsavis. (COJ)

Aphran IV
this planet, located near Bilbringi, was the primary world in the Aprhan System. A relatively poor world, Aphran IV was a warm planet which lacked polar ice caps. The fact that no moons orbitted Aphran IV meant that there were no tides, so much of the planet's water supply remained static. The human natives of the planet were known throughout the galaxy for their exquisite woodworking. (EL2)

Aphran Planetary Exosecurity
this was the planetary security force which protected the planet Aphran IV, during the Yuuzhan Vong invasion of the galaxy. (EL2)

Aphren
this species of small insect makes a loud humming noise when it swarms together. (VOF)

Apiida
this was one of the many Kubaz clans that were native to Kubindi. (MJH)

Apilid Worm
this species of bloated, white-fleshed worm was discovered living at the bottom of some of the deepest mines dug into the planet Vasha, during the early years of the New Republic. The mouth of an apilid worm was crowned by sharp mandibles, which it used to dig through rock and ores, crushing pieces small enough that they could be digested. The average apilid worm measured about a meter in length, but they swarmed in huge colonies that resembled writhing knots of corpse-flesh. Once the apilid worms were exposed, they attacked the nearest heat source, and their jaws were capable to tearing flesh from the bones of Vashan or Ayrou alike. (GMR9)

Apla, Chik
this Imperial officer was part of the team which was stranded on Dolis 3 in the wake of the peace accord signed between the Imperial Remnant and the New Republic. Chik joined Moff Derran Takkar in his plan to disrupt the wedding of Mara Jade and Luke Skywalker, as a way to strike back against the New Republic. Chik was known for his skills with hand-to-hand combat, especially with knives. While on Coruscant, it was also revealed that Chik had been having a somewhat platonic affair with the Moff's wife, Anlys. He was captured by Mara during his attempt to steal her wedding dress. Anlys had given Chik the address of Jari'kyn's studio, and Chik dressed in his finest Imperial armor to attack the Twi'lek. He was unprepared for Mara's presence, and she caused him several serious injuries before remanding him to the custody of the police. (U)

Apliria
this Alliance safeworld was scouted by Lieutenant Deeve during the early stages of the Galactic Civil War. (AIR)

Aplocaph
this alien race has a species-wide yearning to travel to exotic places and meet new people. (RM)

this was one of the Imperial dungeons ships used by Grand Admiral Danetta Pitta to collect entire alien civilizations for use as slaves. The Apocack, along with the Angrix and the Azgoghk terrorized the Outer Rim for many years, until Pitta's death at the Battle of Tralus. (SWI66)

Apocia
a hardwood tree that was once native to the planet Bethal. An infestation of greddleback termites decimated the population of apocia, but an aggressive replanting effort was undertaken to bring the apocia back into production. (SWJ4, SWJ11)

Appazanna Engineering Works
this Wookiee manufacturing and development guild produced the Oevvaor jet catamaran and other unique vehicles, during the last decades of the Old Republic. (X3)

Appeasement Vote
this challenge to the leadership of the New Republic was championed by Senator Viqi Shesh, and supported by those Senators who had no love for the Jedi Knights. The Appeasement Vote, if it had passed, would have required the New Republic to turn over the Jedi Knights to the Yuuzhan Vong, thereby meeting the alien invaders' demands and halting any further invasion of the galaxy. Popular support for the vote came from the Core Worlds, where substantial amounts of credits would be lost if the Yuuzhan Vong attacked and destroyed major commerce centers. Ultimately, the Appeasement Vote failed, especially after Senator Shesh's dealings with the Yuuzhan Vong were exposed. (REC, SBS)

Appo
this was the nickname used by one of the many clone trooper commanders who were utilized during the final stages of the Clone Wars. Appo was assigned to guarding the Jedi Temple on Coruscant, until Darth Sidious revealed his true nature and began to take control of the galaxy. Upon hearing the signal to execute Order 66, Commander Appo accompanied Anakin Skywalker on a killing spree inside the Temple. Appo - otherwise known as Commander 1119 - pursued Padawan Zett Jukassa to the doors of the Temple, but was cut down by the youngster's lightsaber just before his troops were able to kill the boy. (OWS, IS3)

Appreciated Reminiscences
this was the Basic translation of the title of a popular Bith song, which became the theme song for Epoh Trebor during his tours to visit the troops of the Grand Army of the Republic, at the height of the Clone Wars. (MJH)

Apprentice Legislature
this was the branch of the Naboo government which encouraged young children to take an active role in politics. Modeled after the full government, the Apprentice Legislature allowed children to decide for themselves the position and policies of government. The most gifted of these children became full Legislators, and many of these went on to fill positions in the Naboo government. (SWDB)

Apprentice Tournament
this was one of the few chances that students at the Jedi Temple on Coruscant had to actually practice their fighting techniques in real combat. The tournament was held on a regular basis, especially during the early stages of the Clone Wars, as a way to give students more experience in fighting before they were dispatched to farflung planets to combat the Separatists. It was open to those students who were at least ten standard years of age who had either been exposed to combat as a Padawan or were physically stronger than their peers. It was also open to students who were not yet Padawans, since these students had the most time to prepare. The tournament was basically a test of the combatants' lightsaber skills, but they were allowed to use any advantage provided by their surroundings. Hand-to-hand fighting and the use of the Force were allowed, since they were available to a fighter in the real world. The only things that were off-limits were injuries or threatening positions to spectators. Each match was decided by one of two events: three touches with a lightsaber, or one combatant yielding to the other. Often the initial rounds were held in controlled environments, while later rounds provided students with more realistic fighting circumstances. (YDR)

Approach Vector
the flight path which is generated by a ship's navicomputer to place the ship on target to intercept a space station or another ship. (ESBR)

Apsolon
this was the original name of the planet New Apsolon, before the natives elected a planetary leader and threw off the totalitarian government of the Civilized Authority. (TTB)

Apted Squelsh
this female Mon Calamari served as a Major in the Grand Army of the Republic, serving under Admiral Arikakon Baraka during the height of the Clone Wars. She was known as a straight-forward officer, lacking any visible emotion and displaying an unusual detachment from her troops. (TCD)

Ap-xmai keepuna!
see Ap-xmasi keepuna! (RCHC)

Ap-xmasi keepuna!
this Huttese phrase literally meant "Don't shoot me!" Note that an X in the Huttese language sounds like a wet smacking of the lips. (GMR5)

AQ21 Aqua-Harvester
this enormous, repulsor-equipped platform was produced by SoroSuub for use by corporations which were engaged in the aquaculture of fish and oceanic plants. Measuring 110 meters in length, the AQ21 required a crew of 14 to operate, and could accommodate up to 150 workers. Armed with four defensive blasters, the AQ21 was a self-sufficient vessel that could repel most pirate attacks. (GMR8)

AQ-5 Waveskimmer
developed by Hydrospeare Corporation, this attack hydrofoil was also known as a wave walker. It measured 14 meters in length, and was manned by a crew of three with a pair of gunners. It could also transport up to 28 troops and a metric ton of cargo. It was armed with a pair of medium blaster cannons and a pair of light blaster cannons. (AIR)

Aqinos
this Sunesi Jedi Master set out to locate the Shard individual known as Ilum, several years before the onset of the Clone Wars. Originally trained by Jaled Dur, Aqinos had been one of a handful of Jedi Masters who had advocated the investigation of Force-sensitive droids and machines, a pathway that many on the Jedi Council had not advocated. He refused to buy into the argument that droids and technology were the same, stating that those hypocritical beings who subscribed to it were only proving that droids were sentient by differentiating them from other forms of technology. Aqinos believed that there was merit in the melding of technology and The Force, and set out on his own to investigate. Once he learned about and located Ilum, Master Aqinos agreed to train Ilum and her twelve offspring in the ways of the Jedi. When the Clone Wars erupted across the galaxy, Aqinos and Ilum decided to join the Jedi Knights in their struggles against the Separatists. The sudden appearance of Force-sensitive Juggernaut droids was unnerving, and although the new warriors - dubbed the Iron Knights - helped win many battles, the fact that Aqinos had set out without prior approval meant that his work with Ilum was abandoned. Aqinos himself was excommunicated from the Jedi Order, along with the rest of the so-called Iron Knights, and he returned to Dweem. Ilum returned to Dweem with her Master, but she was killed during the Jedi Purge. Aqinos himself lived for many years, until he was killed during the Yuuzhan Vong invasion of the galaxy. (OWS)

Aquadon CAVa 400
this modified Nen-Carvon CAVw PX-10 was produced by the Hydrospeare Corporation. The 5.1-meter-long craft was redesigned to work in aquatic environments, with the addition of stern thrusters and lateral thrusters to give it mobility without requiring the craft to maintain contact with the ground. It was armed with a turret-mounted medium blaster cannon, and its cockpit was designed to provide continual "heads-up" viewing by using gyroscopic stabilizers similar to those on the B-Wing starfighter. If the ship is heavily damaged, the gyro-locks release the pilot's cabin and allow it to avoid further damage. (AIR)

Aquala
a faction of the Aqualish race on Ando, the Aquala live on floating raft cities and sailing ships. The Aquala are called the finned aqualish, since they retain their fins instead of fingers. They are considered to be of a lower social caste than the Quara Aqualish, even though they make up about ninety percent of the Aqualish population. They blamed the Quara for the steady decline in the harvests of fish from the seas, and ignited a racial war that lasted several generations. The war was ended when an exploration vessel of unknown origins landed on Ando, and the two sides stopped fighting each other and destroyed their visitors. The two groups then reverse-engineered the ship and discovered how to fly it and then build their own ships, although the process was painstakingly slow for the non-technical Aqualish. The uneasy truce was soon broken, and the two groups took their battle to Ando's sister planet, utterly destroying it. (GG4)

Aqualis Baralou Algae Processing Plant #T-18
see Aqualis Base. (PG1)

Aqualis Base
this was a food processing station which floated on the seas of the planet Baralou. Its official name was the Aqualis Baralou Algae Processing Plant #T-18, and it was publicly owned by the Aqualis Food Conglomerate. This was all a front, however, as Aqualis Base actually supplied foodstuffs to the Alliance during the Galactic Civil War. (PG1)

Aqualis Food Conglomerate
this large corporation was founded to generate foodstuffs from the life in the seas of the planet Baralou. In reality, this corporation was a front to hide the fact that the Alliance was actually operating the food processing facilities on Baralou. (PG1)

Aqualish
this was the native language of the Aqualish race. Although each of the three subspecies of Aqualish had their own dialect, they couold understand each other without trouble. (ANT, UANT)

Aqualish
a walrus-faced race of bipeds from the planet Ando, the Aqualish were a belligerent species with three distinct races. There were also three castes of Aqualish society, based on which race an individual was part of. The higher caste had hands which are articulated webs with opposable thumbs, and was known as the Quara. The lower caste had clawed hands, rather than the webbed ones, and was known as the Aquala. The smallest and least known of the three races was the Ualaq. The distinction between levels was very great; webbed Aqualish hold governmental and commercial positions, while the clawed Aqualish are usually left to become bounty hunters and smugglers. They are a belligerent yet technically-advanced race. The Aquala live in vast sailing ships, while the Quara live on the planet's small islands. They have a long history of civil war, and have destroyed Ando's sister planet because of it. The war was initiated by the Aquala, who blamed the Quara for the declining harvests of fish. The war lasted until an exploration ship landed on Ando. The two groups banded together and killed the ship's crew. Eventually, the non-technical Aqualish discovered how to fly the ship, and even learned how to build their own. The old grudges soon re-surfaced, though, and the two factions took their battle to Ando's sister planet. When the Empire arrived, the war-loving Aqualish tried to overthrow them. The sheer might of the Empire battered the Aqualish into submission, but it instilled a deep hatred in the Aqualish culture. (SW, GG4, TLC, TME, PH)

Aquar
this race of near-humans evolved on the planet Velusia. Descended from the original human explorers who found the planet millennia before the Battle of Yavin, the Aquar evolved to become more adapted to their aquatic environment. The skin of an Aquar was made up of millions of tiny scales, with colorations ranging from blue to green. The fingers and toes of an Aquar were webbed, and the hair of an Aquar was usually green. The nose of an Aquar was flattened, and instead of two nostrils there were three horizontal slits. An Aquar could breathe underwater just as well as on land, giving them the ability to exist in either realm. (CCW)

Aquaris

He was also the Patriarch of the S'kytri people, and pledged his support to Kharys after Darth Vader and the Empire took control of the planet. However, he retained a measure of faith in the prophesy that a being would come to Skye to free the S'kytri. After hearing Luke Skywalker's testimony during this trial for trespassing on Skye, Aragh and the council of the Highlands were convinced that Luke was the being they had waited for. Luke and Leia Organa were freed, and Aragh pledged the support of his warriors in the effort to overthrow Kharys. (LTA1, MCA1)

Aragon
this ancient Melodie lives beneath the surface of the waters on Yavin 8. At one time, he could read the ancient Massassi writings that litter the moons of Yavin, but the ability has faded over the years from lack of use. He learned the Massassi words as part of the training he received from his mother, Esla. Esla was her generation's keeper of legends, as was Aragon. When Anakin Solo and Tahiri ask him to help them decipher the riddle of the Golden Globe, Aragon cannot help them with the ancient writings, but he does give them the entire message contained within them. Anakin and Tahiri then translated the message into its component letters, allowing them to read more of the ancient writings. (LW)

this asteroid belt was the site of an Imperial mining operation geared toward the procurement of derillium and oridium for the V38 development project. (RA2)

Arak Omis
this imposing Aramandi served as the Taal of the Aramand Cluster at the height of the New Order. A pushy and argumentive being, Arak Omis was a member of the Cirra akia who was nonetheless well-known and respected for his ability to fairly solve any dispute. He despised the Lant Mining Corporation, and flatly refused to grant LMC any form of mining rights to the planets in the Aramand Cluster. When the Empire first started to take control of Brak Sector, Arak Omis found himself humbled before its military might, and he worked to appease the Emprie whenever and wherever possible while keeping the Aramand Cluster in the control of the Aramandi. (FBS)

Arakkus
an Imperial scientist, Arakkus led an Imperial weapons development lab until he was contaminated by experimental radiation released during an Alliance attack on the lab. The radiation was released when an Alliance attack on the installation destroyed much of the lab. Arakkus retired from Imperial service, feeling sorry for himself and angry at the galaxy. He hid near a dwarf star, but could not reconcile his suffering. Thus, he began sending out false distress signals, luring ships to him. He lured them so close to the dwarf star that they were unable to escape its gravity. dooming the ships' crews just as Arakkus was doomed. Known as the Graveyard of Lost Ships, this collection of doomed ships eventually orbited the star in five interconnected rings. Arakkus refused to try and live out a full life. When his distress call lured the Millennium Falcon to the Graveyard, Arakkus was beseeched by Han Solo and Luke Skywalker to leave the place. He refused, claiming that he had rigged the Graveyard with negatron to explode if someone tried to remove him from it. Han realized that such an explosion would free the Falcon, but Arakkus fled into the depths of the station, rather than go back to the outside world. Han and Luke detonated the negatron, destroying the Graveyard and killing Arakkus. (CSW)

Arakyd Aerodynes, Incorporated
this division of Arakyd Industries developed and manufactured personal-use vehicles and conveyances. (GFT)

Arakyd Industries
a major manufacturer of droids, heavy weapons, and starships, Arakyd was founded some 9,000 years before the Galactic Civil War by Veltzz Arakyd on the planet Vulpter. Much of Arakyd's corporate history was filled with violence, most of it based on Veltzz Arakyd's business goal of eliminating all his competitors, by whatever means necessary. Arakyd flaunted the regulations of the Old Republic, routinely creating combat automata and their weaponry. Arakyd was known to bully its way into negotiations and force other bidders out of the deal through thinly-veiled threats of violence and bodily harm. During the build-up to the Clone Wars, Arakyd executed the hostile takeover of Viper Sensor Intelligence Systems, essentially stealing the plans for what would become the Viper probe droid. Although Arakyd allied itself with the Techno Union during the Clone Wars, its leadership made sure that they stayed off the battlefield, thereby continuing to do business with the Old Republic. Arakyd made a name for itself during the New Order by securing several high-profile deals with the Empire. The Viper Probe Droid was one of their greatest achievements, as it marked one of the most successful attempts to use artificial intelligence in a military application. After the Battle of Endor, Arakyd continued to remain loyal to the Imperial remnants, and produced the XR-85 Tank Droid for use when the Empire battled the New Republic for control of Coruscant. However, as the Empire dwindled and eventually became the Imperial Remnant, Arakyd altered its stance and began to sell its products without regards to political backgrounds.

Aramadia
Nil Spaar's embassy ship, it was a huge, spherical craft that was always escorted by three smaller craft. One of the first Aramadia-class thrustships, it employed an Aradian pulse-lifter propulsion system for atmospheric travel. Nil Spaar took the ship to Coruscant when he went there to draw the New Republic's attention away from the Koornacht Cluster. Note that Coruscant and the Core Worlds indicates that the Aramadia was a Super-class Star Destroyer, preserved in the city of Hariz as an inspiration to future generations of Yevetha. (BTS, CCW)

Aramadia-class Thrustship
this Yevethan warship design is a sphere-shaped craft equipped with Aradian pulse-lifters for propulsion. They are also called T-types. There were two basic models of thrustship: an unarmed troop transport and a fully-armed warship. The warship was graded at medium-cruiser-class weaponry, armed with eight main laser cannon batteries spaced around the ship to defend any angle of attack. Up to four batteries could be linked together, to concentrate fire on a single target. They were also armed with several concussion missile launchers. What made the Aramadia-class so strong in battle was the fact that their spherical shape made it easy to shield. The smooth, rounded surface allowed maximum shielding capability with minimal power input, unlike a boxy starship which required multiple generators. The T-type thrustship measured 240 meters in diameter, and required a crew of 6,810 Yevethans along with 49 gunners. It could transport up to 1,600 troops and 10,000 metric tons of cargo. Each was armed with 8 turbolaser batteries, 3 proton torpedo launchers, 4 gravity bomb launchers, 4 missile launcher batteries, and 6 ion cannons. (SOL, TT, CTD)

The Aramandi kept to themselves, and the borders of the Cluster were jealously guarded against intrusion by the rest of Brak Sector. (AE, FBS)

Aramand System Cruiser III
this was the primary patrol cruiser built by the Aramandi during the height of the New Order. At 140 meters in length, the ship required a crew of fifteen Aramandi and four gunners, and could transport up to ten troopers and 250 metric tons of cargo. The Cruiser III was armed with four turret-mounted laser cannons, and the the standardship used by the Taler navy. (FBS)

Aramandi
this was a race of four-armed, four-eyed humanoids from the planet Aram. Because of living for generations in Aram's heavy gravity, their bodies were short and stout. Their skin coloration ranged from light red to light brown, and their eyes were solid black. As a people, the Aramandi were governed by the religious beliefs of the Eeronon, and divided themselves into four distinct castes or akia: the Orma, Cirra, Mila, and Lota. The Aramandi jealously controlled the Aramand Cluster, within Brak Sector, mainly because it was the the area of their birth. As the Lant Mining Corporation exhausted its worlds, they beganmaking overtures to the Aramandi, hoing to gain access to the Cluster. With the advent of the New Order, the Aramandi were also courted by the Empire, and given elaborate concessions to allow a simple garrison to be erected on Aram. In return, the Aramandi were basicaly left alone. (SSR, AE, FBS)

Araquia
an alien arachnid species native to the planet Kirtania. The misuse of the planet's resources by the humans that colonized the planet has resulted in the near-extinction of the araquia race. The average Araquia resembled a large spider, with greenish-brown skin and long legs. They lived in the lower canopy of Kirtania's deciduous jungles. Their knowledge of the plant life on Kirtania gave them a great deal of information on medicine, and their serums and anti-venoms were sought out by travelers and doctors for curing a number of rare diseases.

The Hoojibs later allowed the Alliance to establish their base on Arbra, after the loss of the Echo Base on Hoth. Millennia before the Hoojibs evolved, another sentient race inhabited the planet. This race tried to eliminate their negative feelings by pushing their energy into an underground cavern, which was protected by a force field. Over time, this negative energy coalesced into a being known as the Darker. Arbra was orbited by a single moon. (EGC, EGA, MC55, SWDB, WOTC)

ARC-170
officially known as the Aggressive ReConnaissance starfighter, this ship was developed by Incom/Subpro for the Old Republic during the height of the Clone Wars. The thirteen-meter-long central fuselage was connected to a pair of sturdy wings. Note that Star Wars Episode III - Incredible Cross-Sections indicates that the ARC-170 measured 14.5 meters in length. To disperse excess heat and to increase maneuverability, two smaller wings could be extended from the fuselage on each side of the ARC 170, one above and one below the stationary wings. This configuration made the overall wingspan of the ARC-170 almost 23 meters. The ship was armed with a pair of medium laser cannons, two rear-mounted blaster cannons, and six proton torpedoes. Unlike traditional starfighters, the ARC-170 required a crew compliment that included a pilot, co-pilot, and gunner, as well as an astromech droid to operate. The ARC-170 was one of the first Republic starfighters to be equipped with a hyperdrive, eliminating the need for a hyperdrive ring to travel across interstellar distances. (OWS, SWGAL, X3)

When irritated, their eyes exude a milky, tear-like fluid. Socially, Arcona arrange themselves into groups called Grand Nests. They are farmers by nature, tilling Cona's rich tropical environment. The absence of salt in their environment has caused them to become addicted to the substance on occasion. Such addicted Arcona are noticeable by their glowing yellow eyes, a result of a chemical interaction between the salt their optic nerves. This interaction also causes hallucinatory visions to play across the Arcona's eyes. However, increased levels of salt also break down the pancreatic ability to convert ammonia into a water-conserving enzyme, and is thus deadly to the Arcona. (GG4, SCRE, CCG, REC, SWDB)

He no longer had to worry about abnormal behavior among his troops, as each clone was produced to be utterly loyal and follow directions with incredible precision. Deep inside, he also wondered whether he and other military leaders were simply becoming obsolete. When he was ordered to take the Nexu and travel to Ord Cestus, he was angry at having been removed from the main fighting lines of the war. He bristled at the fact that a mission to Ord Cestus would not gain him any attention or promotions, and he vowed to eliminate the Cestian threat as quickly as possible in order to return to the fighting. He believed he was going to strike at the Clandes Industrial complex, but Asajj Ventress had secretly altered the triangulation of the signals. Instead, the targetting system was actually aimed at a densely-populated civilian area. Baraka didn't know this, but was still shocked when ARC trooper A-98 - once known as Nate - ordered the ships to fire on his exact location. Only the seriousness of the request, which would surely kill the ARC trooper, made Baraka change the ship's targetting to aim at Nate's position. (TCD)

Aril
this was a common female name given to Sullustan females. It meant "delicate" in the Sullustan language. (GCG)

Aril Nunb
Nien Nunb's sister, she was the Executive Officer of the X-Wing Rogue Squadron about two and a half years after the Battle of Endor. Wedge Antilles praised her abilities as a fighter pilot, but he opposed her nomination as XO because she was an instinctual pilot with little ability to teach. He wanted Tycho Celchu to be the XO. She eventually became a pilot in the squadron, and was captured on Coruscant. She was used as one of Evir Derricote's experimental aliens for his Krytos project before she was rescued. She later assisted the Rogues during the Bacta War by piloting the Valiant warship. After several years of valiant and intelligent service, Aril was promoted to Admiral, and given command of the Victory-class Star Destroyer Protector. She accompanied Leia Organa Solo to Bastion, shortly after the start of the Yuuzhan Vong invasion, to enlist the aid of Admiral Pellaeon and the Imperial Remnant. (XWN, WG, BW, DTR)

Aris
located in the Albarrio System, this jungle world was the sector capital of Relgim Sector. It was on the intinerary of the Kuari Princess when Imperial Moffs Torpin and Vanko began plotting their deception of Emperor Palpatine. Members of the Alliance were also on the planet, trying to discover what the Moffs were up to while escaping from stormtroopers. The Moffs and the Alliance agents all boarded the Kuari Princess on Aris. Aris is the capital world of the Albarrio Sector. It has no native sapient species, although the wok-woks that roam the jungles have begun showing rudimentary intelligence. The jungles of Aris cover the planet in tropical rainforest, with trees growing 250 meters tall in the warmest parts. The inhabitants of the planet live in tree-dwellings formed from wide platforms and connected by simple bridges and walkways. (RM, CFG, TFE)

this Nuknog was known as "Bumpy" on the Outer Rim podracing circuits. A native of the planet Sump, Bumpy favored the Vokoff-Strood Plug-G 927 model of racer during his prime. Being one of Sebulba's cronies, Ark Roose tried to sabotage Anakin Skywalker's podracer, shortly before the Boonta Eve Classic race, but disabled Ben Quadinaros' machine by mistake. In the end, Ark was knocked from the race and did not finish. (RAC, IG1, IWE1, PRT, SWDB)

Ar'kai
this was a Bothan term, used to describe the highest state of war in which the Bothan's could participate. It was reserved for those dire situations in which the very survival of the Bothan race was at stake, and demanded the complete and utter extermination of an enemy. It had been invoked only twice in Bothan history, before the Yuuzhan Vong invaded the galaxy. In the wake of Borsk Fey'lya's death at the Battle of Coruscant, the Bothans again invoked the ar'kai, vowing to eradicate the Yuuzhan Vong. Historically, the invocation of ar'kai demanded that the enemy be destroyed to the last individual, that their names be wiped from history, and their planets reduced to dust. (DW)

Arkania
originally part of the ancient Sith Empire, Arkanian was a planet which had a great deal of Dark Side energy. For this reason, it was the world watched over by Jedi Master Arca Jeth during period leading up to the Great Sith War. It was a cool, tundra world known for its huge diamonds. Because of its location in the Colonies region, Arkania was captured by the Yuuzhan Vong during their invasion of the galaxy. It was used as a strategic base, allowing the Yuuzhan Vong access to the Hydian Way, the Perlemian Trade Route, and most of the Colonies. During the years leading up to the Clone Wars, a theraputic cloning center was established on the planet, to generate replacement organs for individuals suffering from life-threatening diseases. Much to the dismay of these individuals, the onset of the Clone Wars brought about a halt to any non-military cloning, under Senate decree E49D139.41. (TOJ, DESB, SBS, SWI68, PJSB)

this was the race of near-humans which were native to the planet Arkania. They were distinguished from baseline human stock by their four-fingered hands and their milky-white, pupiless eyes. The Arkanians were best-known for their extensive research into genetic manipulation, especially in the development of the Yaka species, although there was a peception during the era of the New Order that the Arkanians were "mad scientists" who were going to enslave the human race. As a people, Arkanians were arrogant beings who had little tolerance for rude behavior. Arkanians were also somewhat xenophibic, and believed themselves to be superior to most other races. (EGP, ANT, WOTC)

Arkanian
this was the native language of the Arkanian people. (ANT)

Arkanian Dawn
this infamous Thalassian Y164 slave transport ship is feared throughout the Outer Rim Territories. Rumors surrounding the ship say that no one ever survives a trip in the Dawn, for no one has ever been seen after boarding it. This is, in fact, all a clever ruse put on by the Sullustan Thila, who owns the Dawn. She is an Alliance operative, and uses the mystique and fear surrounding the ship to swoop down on slave camps and collect slaves. She then transports them to Alliance safeworlds, where they can live in peace. (GG9)

Arkanian Dominion
this was the political power of the planet Arkania, some fifty years before the Battle of Yavin. It was during this time that the Arkanian Revolution took place, in which the Arkanian Renegades tried to steal power from the Dominion. The coup failed, but it brought to light the benefits of cyborg technology. (EGD, NEGC)

Arkanian Dragon
a large, reptilian creature native to the planet Arkania, the Arkanian Drago was considered semi-sentient by many xenobiologists. (FNU, EGP)

Arkanian Jellyfish
a lifeform native to the planet Arkania. (FNU)

Arkanian Microtechnologies
this Arkanian corporation was ostensibly a manufacturer of medical supplies and technologies, but specialized in the advanced development of genetic engineering. Like the Arkanians who founded it, Arkanian Microtechnologies was highly fearful of outsiders, and much of its security system centered on the prohibition - or elimination - of non-Arkanians. This made entering the premises nearly impossible for off-worlders, unless they were provided with specialized security badges. During the early stages of the Clone Wars, Arkanian Microtechnologies struggled to produce a cheaper clone trooper for the Army of the Republic. Their plan did not involve cloning, but a new form of development which remained a corporate secret for many years. (PH)

Arkanian Renegades
this group of power-hungry scientists were known for their ability to cyborg virtually any living creature. They used their talents to create an invincible cyborg army, and tried to unseat the Arkanian Dominion some fifty years before the Battle of Yavin, in an event which came to be known as the Arkanian Revolution. The coup failed, but the cyborging technology of the Renegades was adopted by the natives of Arkania. (EGD, NEGC)

Arkanian Revolution
occurring some fifty years before the Battle of Yavin, the Arkanian Revolution was a coup attempt launched by the Arkanian Renegades.

Arleil Schous
this aging male Defel served as one of the Alliance's primary contacts on Tatooine. He was well-regarded as a leader in Mos Eisley's alien community. His advancing age had dimished his ability to warp light, so he was unable to hide in the shadows like younger Defel. (CCG6)

Arloc
this was one of the many months observed during the year on the planet Velmor. (WOTC)

Arl'Toral
this ancient Coynite warrior was the son of Toral, and took his father's beliefs in the En'Tra'Sol to heart.

Armored Vrblther
this was one of the few subspecies of vrblthers which remained native to the planet Varl. This species evolved a thick, armored skin over the generations, as a result of remaining on the planet's surface and eking out an existence in the radiation-blasted ecosystem. These hunch-backed bipeds were essentially reptilian in nature, resembling the base-stock vrblthers which were transported to Nar Shaddaa and Nal Hutta. However, the claws of the armored vrblther were extremely sharp, and their tails were studded with sharp spikes. One unusual aspect of this creature was the fact that the armored scales we thick enough that radioactive materials sometimes became lodged in between them, making them mobile sources of radiation. Armored vrblthers survived by attacking and eating anything in their paths, although they usually fed on the Nikto and Twi'lek nomads which lived on Varl's surface. (WOTC)

Armorers' Confederacy
this band og outlaw armorers and weapons technicians was originally based on the planet Xal 3, but was run off the planet and forced to seek refuge in the Krasho Salt Rifts on the planet Sarafur during the last years of the Old Republic.

To this end, they planned to export a freighter full of clodhoppers from Naboo to Stend IV, where they could wreak havoc with the Gran settlements. When greeting of leaving each other, members of the Army of Life would say "For the Life." This may be the same group as the Knights of the Core, since they had the same goals and aims. (WOA2, SON)

Army of Light
this was the name used by the Jedi to describe the war force dispatched to Ruusan, under the command of Lord Hoth, to fight against Lord Kaan and the Brotherhood of Darkness. In the final battle for Ruusan, the Sith unleashed a thought bomb, which obliterated every member of the Army of Light. (ECH)

Army of Terror
this was the final result of Project Starscream, had it ever succeeded. Borborygmus Gog had planned to develop an army of biological constructs which was quick to generate, was immune to the Force and could obtain sustenance from its victims. All earlier steps in the project were geared toward the creation of the army. Gog had implanted into the brain of each construct an explosive device, which could be detonated if the army ran amok. The plans for the army were scuttled when Gog was killed on Kiva and the only surviving member of the army, a being known as Eppon, was destroyed by Gog. (GOF6)

During the three years of fighting that led up to the Battle of Coruscant and the end of the Clone Wars, more than half of the original clones had been killed in combat. (MTS, HNN4, LEV)

Arnae, Dwin
this thin, mousy Imperial officer was a driven perfectionist who had hoped to set an Imperial record for the most successful apprehensions of suspected customs violators. His other goal was to set the record for most successful prosecutions against those customs violators. An extraordinary individual in his own eyes, Arnae's perfectionist attitude got him thrown out of the Imperial Navy when he uncovered some infractions on the part of his superiors. Rather than bring the matter to further attention, his commanding officer had him removed to the Sector Interdiction office on Travnin. In order to meet his own goals - which his superiors cared little for, since they were all more worried about the Alliance - Arnae continually scoured the Minos Cluster, keeping his highly-disgruntled crew on missions for months at a time. (GG6)

Arner Figgis
a respected Issoria scholar, Arner taught anthropology and archaeology at the University of Be'Nal despite never truly experiencing either activity.

Arnjak, Baljos
this man, who appeared to be a native of Coruscant, was a member of the New Republic's Wraith Squadron. He served as the team's biological expert, and was one of the few beings with extensive experience in the Yuuzhan Vong physiology. Arnjak's knowledge and skills were the reasons he was chosen as one of the Wraiths chosen to accompany Luke Skywalker on a mission to infiltrate Coruscant, after the Yuuzhan Vong captured the planet. Arnjak had managed to develop his own ooglith masquers, designed to resemble Yuuzhan Vong warriors when worn by New Republic agents. When the mission was completed, it was Arnjak who chose remain behind on Coruscant, which had been terraformed into a simulacrum of the long-long Yuuzhan Vong homeworld of Yuuzhan'tar. He let loose a number of fungus droids that allowed him to gather information from across the planet, and made regular reports back to the Republic's commanders. It was Arnjak's report on the return of the Prophet, Yu'shaa, that prompted Kenth Hamner and the few remaining Jedi Knights to launch another mission to Coruscant, this time to talk to the Prophet about what happened on Zonama Sekot. Unknown to even his commanders, Arnjak had also managed to make contact with the Shamed Ones who flocked to the words of the prophet Yu'shaa, and had altered them to the possibility that the Galactic Alliance might try to retake Coruscant. When the attempt actually occurred, and Judder Page led an infiltration team to Coruscant's remade surface, Arnjak and his rebels were able to seek them out and provide assistance. (EL1, UF)

Arno
this was a common name among the Zeltron people. (GMR1)

Arno
this male Zeltron was the King of his people, at the time of the Battle of Endor.

Arr, Kodo
this middle-aged man proclaimed himself to be the best smuggler in the galaxy, when he arrived on the floating city of Tolea Biqua during the height of the Clone Wars. Distinguished by his close-cropped, white hair and his boisterous personality, Kodo Arr claimed to have survived the rigors of learning the smuggling trade on Nar Shaddaa, which gave him the right to assume the title of best smuggler in the galaxy. He made a number of moonside runs in a heavily-modified T-16 skyhopper, andonce tried to drag a crate filled with goods through the lower levels of the moon's skyscrapers. The heavy crate began to tear the skyhopper's rearend off, so he tried to slow down, forgetting that the crate's inertia would not be stopped by the T-16's brakes. He improvised a makeshift deflector shield using old droideka parts he found in his hold, and barely got their shield generators running when the crate hit the skyhopper. Not many beings believed this story, but Kodo Arr never stopped telling it. (LFCW)

arra
this Shyriiwook word was used as the suffix to many Wookiee names. It translated into Basic as "fur", "hide", or "shield". It could be attached to a prefix by itself, or combined with other suffixes to form a complete Wookiee name. (GMR10, GCG)

Arranda, Tash
an orphan from the planet Alderaan, Tash and her younger brother Zak traveled the galaxy with their strange uncle Hoole after their parents were killed when the Empire destroyed their homeworld. The children had been away on a field trip when the destruction occurred. The three were wanted by the Empire for a number of supposed crimes. Tash was thirteen at the time she began to notice a sensitivity to the Force. She was taken in by the B'omarr monk Grimpen, who drew her into his plans by making her believe she was one of the most enlightened beings of her generation. However, she was simply drawn into an elaborate scheme in which Jabba the Hutt had been using B'omarr techniques to transfer the brains of the galaxy's worst criminals into other bodies. Tash ended up with the brain of Karkas after the original host escaped, and promptly killed Commander Fuzzel. Hoole managed to get her brain back into her own body after stopping Grimpen and returning several ancient scrolls to the B'omarr monks. She later used a red-gemstone necklace - give to her by her mother - as a way to concentrate on the Force. (GOF1, GOF7, GOF11)

Arranda, Zak
this orphan, once a native of the planet Alderaan, traveled the galaxy with his sister, Tash, and their uncle, Hoole. Hoole took care of the children after their parents were killed when the first Death Star destroyed Alderaan. The children had been away on a field trip when the destruction occurred. The three were wanted by the Empire for a number of supposed crimes. Zak was a little over a year younger than Tash, and while he had some affinity for the Force, Zak was extremely adept with technology. He could return most computers and systems to working order, given the right parts and some time. Zak was declared clinically dead when they stopped on the planet Necropolis to purchase a new starship. After befriending Kairn, Zak was drawn into Doctor Evazan's plans to create armies of reanimated zombies. He injected Zak with the diluted juice of cryptberries, then injected him with reanimation serum. Zak was then buried, and Evazan hoped that the boneworms would soon begin burrowing into his body to locate bone marrow. It was Zak who discovered that the B'omarr monk Grimpen was working with Jabba the Hutt to transfer criminal brains into new bodies, and rescued his sister from a similar fate while in the crimelord's palace on Tatooine. (GOF1, GOF7, GOF11)

Arrant, Jurnel
this man, a native of the planet Corellia, was the chief executive officer of the Lommite Limited mining corporation during the era leading up to the Battle of Naboo. A handsome man of middle age, Arrant was frustrated by Lommite Limited's inability to counteract the industrial sabotage of his biggest rival, InterGalactic Ores, against the operations on Dorvalla. He ordered his chief officer, Patch Bruit, to hire independent mercenaries to cause problems for InterGalactic. Unfortunately for Arrant, the feud between the two corporations was manipulated by Darth Sidious in such a way that Lommite Limited and InterGalactic Ores destroyed themselves, leaving the lommite mines open to the Trade Federation. Arrant believed that Hath Monchar was responsible for the death and destruction which swept both Lommite Limited and InterGalactic Ores, until he was shown evidence of outside tampering. In the end, he was forced to merge with InterGalactic Ores and turn over control of Dorvalla to the Trade Federation. Note that the Ultimate Alien Anthology indicates that Jurnel Arrant was a Neimoidian. (DMS, UANT)

Arratan
this beefy, black-bearded man was the leader of the Blood Nest bandit group, based on the third moon of M2398. He despised Captain Darillian. (WS)

an Imperial freighter destroyed by Keyan Farlander during his first tour of duty as an X-Wing pilot. (XW)

Arrejis Mellaha
this Squib ran Serooin's Gear, on the planet Betha II, shortly after the death of Grand Admiral Thrawn. Mellaha, like many aliens who lived in the Outer Rim at this point in galactic history, was wary of the presence of humans or the New Republic. However, he harbored neither group any ill-will. In fact, he was prospering from selling illegal goods to his patrons, primarily because of bans imposed by the Republic. While not directly cooperating, Mellaha helped a group of Republic agents search out the Kaarenth Dissension by warning them to stay away from certain areas of Betha II's primary starport. (SWJ8)

Arrest Tentacles
developed by the Yuuzhan Vong, arrest tentacles were the bio-technological equivalent of a tractor beam. They could be extended from a starship, primarily the matalok cruiser-analog, in order to grasp and control a smaller vessel. (SBS)

Arrestor
this Imperial bulk cruiser was assigned to Admiral Greelanx. It served as part of the front attack line during the Battle of Nar Shaddaa. Drea Renthal managed to destroy this ship by launching a series of concussion missiles into her flanks, then pummeling the ship with turbolaser fire. (THG)

Arrgaw System
this system is located on the Harrin Trade Corridor, between the Lahopa and Lazerian Systems. (TSK)

Arrgrar
native to the planet Cularin, this vine seemingly grew overnight out of dead or decaying plant material. The spores of the arrgrar were carried in the digestive system of a species of rat, and then deposited beneath the compost. The arrgrar vine grew quickly, entwining any other plantlife and inserting tiny tendrils into its host to suck water and nutrients from it. The host died quickly, along with arrgrar, but the arrgrar dropped its spores before it died, thereby ensuring the continuation of the species. (WOTC)

Arri
this Shyriiwook word was used as the prefix to many Wookiee names. It translated into Basic as "mighty" or "strong", and could be combined with one or more suffixes to form a complete Wookiee name. (GMR10, GCG)

Arrizza
this Kurtzen was a worker at the Bakuran Senate Complex during the height of the Yuuzhan Vong invasion of the galaxy. He was also a good friend of the Ryn informant, Goure, and provided a wealth of information about the tunnels and chambers beneath the complex. Arrizza had no political affiliations, so he cared little for either the Bakuran government, the Freedom movement, or the New Republic. Thus, when Goure asked for his help in locating Jaina Solo, Arrizza agreed to help Goure and Tahiri Veila infiltrate the Complex. Later, Arrizza used his strange connection to the life-energy of the Force to help Tahiri learn to live in peace with the Riina Kwaad personality that had been implanted in her mind by Mezhan Kwaad. (FH2)

Arr'kya
this Bothan served as a Lieutenant in the New Republic, and was stationed aboard the Ralroost as the communications officer, under the command of Admiral Kre'fey during the Yuuzhan Vong occupation of Garqi.

Arrogant One, The
see Arrogantus, Serji-X (GMR4)

Arrogantus, Serji-X
a native of Caprioril, this swoop racer challenged Ignar Ominaz in many races and championships, during the last years of the Old Republic. He had been given the nickname of "The Arrogant One" because of his disregard for the rules and hazards of swoop racing. Arrogantus considered Ominaz to be a plodding sort of racer with little hope of actually remaining champion. However, after Arrogantus himself was defeated several times by Hodrix, he found himself without a manager or a sponsor. He raced one last time, but his desparate attempt to win the race led to a nasty crash. Arrogantus suffered severe trauma to the head, and was forced to abandon his racing career. Years later, Arrogantus became the gang leader of the hill-dwelling Cloud Riders, and was overtaking the planet Aduba-3 when Han Solo and Chewbacca were stranded there. He was eventually overthrow by Solo, Jaxxon, and their band of adventurers, when Merri's grandfather called forth the Behemoth from the crust of the planet. Rather than surrender, Serji-X flew his skyspeeder directly at the grandfather. The Behemoth, in an effort to kill Serji-X, crushed both men under its huge, clawed foot. Note that this character is also referred to as Sergi-X. (MC8, HNN5, MC9. MC10, GMR4)

Arrow-17
an Aratech airspeeder popular in the Outer Rim. (TFE)

Arrow-23
one of Aratech's landspeeders, the Arrow-23 was designed for use by adventurers and guides who needed to get into the wilderness. It was protected by military-grade armor and blast-resistant windows. Despite these measures, the 8.1-meter-long Arrow-23 was surprisingly comfortable, and was one of the fastest civilian speeders on the market during the height of the New Order. The Arrow-23 was also easily customized, with a wide range of options for communications, comfrot, and weapons. The Alliance modified these craft extensively, adding a laser cannon and a concussion grenade launcher to move up to 5 troopers into a hot battle zone. (RASB, AEG)

Arroway, Cheln

this Twi'lek woman was the chosen companion of the Najib Lathaam, until he mistakenly angered Adalric Brandl by not allowing him to leave the planet Najiba during its passage through the surrounding asteroid belt. Brandl used the Dark Side of the Force to strangle Arruna and kill her without touching her. (TFE)

Ars Fivvle
this Ugnaught, a member of the Isced tribe, worked as a reporter for Action Tidings on Cloud City, during the height of the New Order. Fivvle had been with the network for nearly a century at the time of the Battle of Hoth, and was known for his ability to snoop out good stories. He was also known for his self-love, and many other reporters often said that he was the unofficial president of the Ars Fivvle fan club. He seemed to have a way of making himself the center of any story, although his reporting was generally considered to be in-depth and informative nonetheless. He was leaked information about the Ugnaught rebellion against Imperial Governor Treece, in the wake of Lando Calrissian's flight from Cloud City, some months after the Battle of Hoth. Fivvle and his team planned to record the eventual destruction of Cloud City, as a testament to the fortitude of the Ugnaught people. Note that Marvel Comics' Star Wars series, issue 57, depicts Fivvle and his team hiding out on the surface of Bespin, which was a swampy marsh filled with liquified gases, while waiting for the bombs to explode. Several years after the Battle of Endor, Fivvle retired to the Ugnaught outpost of Ugnorgrad, although he remained the most popular figure of Action Tidings. His holodocumentary, Ugnaughts' Progress, was so popular on Bespin that it was eventually picked up and distributed to newsnets across the galaxy, and earned him a great many honors from broadcast agencies. This, of course, only added to his self-described legend. (MC57, PH)

Ars Opus
an Imperial freighter which was carrying a cargo of R2 astromech droids, it was overtaken by pirates but later captured by the Alliance.

Art Beyond Dying
this was the name of the "glorious conception" honorable Blood Carvers could experience after their physical bodies died. Once the physical body was killed, the Blood Carver moved forward into the afterlife, reborn in a more wondrous form. Many heinous crimes, especially those which bring dishonor to one's family, result in a warrior's exclusion from the list of those allowed to experience the Art. (RP)

Art of Movement
this Jedi training exercise put a student into an obstacle course filled with lines of light, as well as a multitude of bouncing points of light. The idea was to move from one side of a room to the other, avoiding the various lights which kept moving around the room. The goal was to hone the student's reflexes while enhancing their agility. (JQ3)

Art of the Small
this technique of utilizing the power of the Force was discovered and refined by the Fosh Jedi Knight, Vergere, during her five decades of imprisonment with the Yuuzhan Vong. Vergere's personal study and introspection transcended the traditional definitions of a light side and a dark side to the Force. Instead, she found a wild form of the Force and a more controlled form. This definition, which simply stated the the Force exists and can be controlled, led her to the discovery of the Art of the Small. Using this technique, Vergere could make herself "small", in such a way that she was barely recognizable within the Force. This allowed her to fool her Yuuzhan Vong captors into believing that she was not, in fact, a Jedi Knight. It also allowed her to manipulate individual molecules within her body to affect tiny chemical changes. Thus, Vergere could alter her own tears to become healing fluids or poisons. (WOTC)

Artel
an Imperial Security Bureau agent who worked with Wallace Fisk on Demophon. (SN)

Artery Worm
this tiny, vicious worm was native to the planet Dathomir. During the Old Republic, the Witches of Dathomir raised artery worms to feed to their victims. When ingested, an artery worm will burrows through its host's veins, turning them to molten fire as it digests them. (SWIE)

The Imperial forces garrisoned the planet and took control of the mines in an effort to supply raw materials for the work of Admiral Galak Fyyar. Kyle Katarn managed to infiltrate the operation shortly after the Battle of Endor, rendering the mines inoperable and temporarily halting Fyyar's work. Kyle also freed the prisoners who were being forced to work in the mines. (SWI69, JK2)

Artzam Hathan
this male Ugnaught was believed to have stolen secret plans and schematics from Sienar Fleet Systems, during the years following the Battle of Naboo. With the help of his colleague, Alby Ermad, Artzam made off with several disks worth of documentation and fled to the Outland Transit Station. However, a bounty had been placed on both Ugnaughts' head for their arrest and return to Sienar. Jango Fett collected the bounty on both of them. (BH)

Aruden Kej
this Jedi Knight was a noted starfighter pilot, and was part of the task force assigned to the Monitor III during the attempt to smash a band of Iridium Pirates which was harassing Old Republic shipping convoys near Vuchelle. After the Monitor III took heavy damage from a blast of the pirates' power gem, Aruden Kej and his fellow pilots took to space in the Aethersprite-class fighters designed for the Jedi. However, Kej was killed in the battle to save the Monitor III. (HNN4)

Aruk Besadii Aora
this Hutt was one of the most powerful members of the Besadii clan. A sibling of Zavval, it was Aruk who placed his nephew Kibbick in control of the Ylesian spice processing facility. Almost 900 years of age at the time of the inception of the New Order, Aruk was so corpulent that he was unable to perform simple movements. Aruk and Jiliac were the two most wealthy and powerful Hutts of their age, and they were continually striving to outdo each other in terms of profits. Aruk gave birth to the disfigured Hutt called Durga, and raised the child in the face of opposition from many other Hutts. When Jiliac realized that Aruk was going to cut off the supply of spice and slaves from Ylesia, he contacted Teroenza. The two devised a scheme in which poisoned nala-tree frogs - a favorite delicacy of Aruk's - were fed to the old Hutt. Aruk consumed the frogs with abandon until his system could no longer take the abuse. Aruk died form the continual poisoning, and his nephew, Durga, suspected foul play. Durga had Aruk's body frozen and sent to Coruscant for an autopsy, where the poison was identified and isolated. (THG, RD, NEGC)

Aruza
this planet, the homeworld of the Aruzan race, was subjugated by the Empire. It had five moons. (TBH)

Aruzan
this fair, blue-skinned race of humanoids was native to the planet Aruza. The Aruzans had rounded heads covered with blue hair so dark it appears black. They had a form of group mind, which was accessed via an access port implanted behind their ears called an Attanni. They also were incapable of performing violence, and were easily subjugated by the Empire. Certain members of the race were taken to COMPNOR Redesign camps. There, their brains were heavily modified by surgical, chemical, and cybernetic techniques to turn them into a slave race of warriors. The Aruzans hired Dengar to eliminate Sinick Kritkeen, in an effort to remove the Imperial yoke. (TBH)

(SSR)

Arwen
this was one of the most common given names used for human males throughout the galaxy. (GCG)

Arwen Cohl
this notorious Mirialan pirate was hired by the militant wing of the Nebula Front, during the last decades of the Old Republic, to harass Trade Federation convoys. He controlled the pirate group from his modified Tempest-class gunship, the Hawk-Bat. Cohl was a native of the same planet as Luminara Unduli, and bore facial and hand tattoos similar to those of the Jedi Master. He was known on his homeworld as a freedom fighter who made many sacrifices to help his people gain their independence. However, soon after his people gained their freedom, Arwen was accused of conspiring against his people, and sentenced to prison. He managed to escape from prison with the help of some friends, and vowed to have his revenge against those who imprisoned him. He became a mercenary and avenged himself quite strongly before setting out as a pirate. Many years later, Captain Cohl and his crew managed to infiltrate the Trade Federation freighter Revenue shortly before the Battle of Naboo, capturing the freighter's load of lommite and aurodium ingots. Unknown to Cohl, his actions were being tracked by the Republic and the Jedi Knights. After securing the aurodium ingots from the Revenue, Cohl and his infiltration team faked their own destruction by flying toward the explosion of the Trade Federation ship and hiding near the pole of Dorvalla. It was believed that Cohl's actions were actually part of Darth Sidious' plans to garner sympathy for the Federation within the Republic. Cohl and his crew tried to reach Dorvalla, but were shot down. Cohl himself managed to return to Asmeru, but the rest of his crew had either been killed or left the crew. Cohl was then hired by Havac to put together a team of assassins to help alter the course of events in the taxation of trade routes by the Republic by assassinating Chancellor Valorum on Eriadu. However, when the Jedi caught wind of Cohl's activities, Havac was forced to take action to avoid discovery of his own plans. Havac's forces intercepted Cohl's people on Eriadu, and a firefight broke out. Cohl was shot and left for dead by Havac in the melee, in an attempt to implicate Cohl in Valorum's death. With Boiny's help, Cohl was able to survive long enough to thwart Havac's plans. In another brief struggle, Cohl and Havac shot each other. Cohl died from the multiple blaster wounds. (OWS, COD, SWDB)

She also taught him how to contact and control the Force, and accompanied Vo-Shay when he managed to break free of the Cluster. Vo-Shay, however, had no intentions of becoming a Jedi Knight. After Vo-Shay met the young man named Nyo, Aryzah realized that Nyo was also Force-sensitive, and agreed to help teach him about the Force. (TFNR)

Distinguished by three forehead tattoos and a scar across his left eye, Asa Naga and the Wookiee Gargachykk were sent by Darnada to hunt down Feen Fenoob and either obtain the credits that the Sullustan owed to Darnada, or bring in his body. They were unable to recover the money, and were resigned to bringing back the Sullustan's body when they discovered that Darth Maul had already killed him. The two thugs brought Maul back to Darnada, only to have the Sith Lord execute the entire assembly. Only Asa Naga survived, and he fled to Alexi Garyn's residence on Ralltiir to report on the execution of Darnada. Unfortunately, Maul followed him to Garyn's residence, and the Sith Lord killed him in an effort to eliminate any trace of his involvement. (DM)

this uncharted sector of the space surrounding the Dantooine System was first explored by the Empire, although no routes into or out of the Ribbon were ever discovered. Asair's Ribbon was later demarked on astrogational maps as the second quadrant of the Dantooine System. (SWGAL)

Asajj Ventress
a native of the planet Rattatak, this woman was a ruthless and cunning adversary, known for her military expertise and her corrupt mastery over the Force. Her parents were murdered by Osika Kirske when she was young, and might have died if not to the sudden appearance of Jedi Master Ky Narec. Master Narec was stranded on Rattatak, and discovered her connection to the Force. Cut off from the Jedi Order, Narec took it upon himself to train Ventress. After Narec was killed by Kirske, Ventress used her considerable powers to gain power and authority on her homeworld, and eventually killed Kirske. She believed that the Jedi Order had abandoned her teacher to his fate, and she hated them for it. This hatred gave her a strong connection to the Dark Side of the Force, which she tapped to kill off the twelve warlords who controlled various parts of Rattatak. A black tattoo stripe was draw on her bald skull for each warlord she killed. She was discovered later by Darth Tyranus, and was instrumental in his plans to lead the Separatists to victory. Despite the fact that she was never trained in the Sith arts, she became one of his most trusted Commanders, and wielded a pair of curved-handled ligthsabers which were similar to Tyranus' own weapon. However, each of Ventress' lightsabers could be attached at the base, creating a double-bladed lightsaber with blades that extended a slightly different angles. This made the weapon harder to deflect and counter. When it was learned that Jedi Master Mace Windu was traveling to Ruul to meet with the dissident Jedi Master Sora Bulq, Tyranus ordered Ventress to go to Ruul and kill the dissidents. If cornered, she was to explain that she had been hired by Master Windu, to help ensure that there would be no dissention among the Jedi. She managed to injure Master Bulq and kill Mira, and she openly stated that she hoped Master Windu would be pleased with her work. She then turned her attention to destroying Master Bulq's followers, hoping to ensure that the Jedi Order was discredited. She was unable, however, to defeat Master Windu in battle, and opted to flee Ruul and fight another day. Ventress later was teamed with the bounty hunter Durge, during the Separatist attack on the moon of Ohma-D'un. They had hoped to launch a second attack on Naboo, after Ohma-D'un was destroyed, but Republic forces led by Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker interrupted their plans. As Durge tried to reach Naboo, Obi-Wan and Ventress battled with their lightsabers in the swamps. Their battle ended in a draw, with Anakin arriving with clone troopers just as Durge arrived to help Ventress escape. They fled to Queyta, where they were ordered to secure the antidote to the swamp gas poison used on Ohma-D'un. Once again, Obi-Wan and the Jedi Knights confronted them, but Ventress was in control of the antidote by then. She tried to flee, but was pursued by Obi-Wan and Master Fay. It was Master Fay who used the Force to hurl shards of glass and metal at Ventress, catching the Dark Jedi in the throat. Ventress had no skills in healing, and surrendered the antidote to the Jedi. She didn't die, however, and stabbed Master Fay as they were fleeing. Once again, Ventress and Durge fled the Jedi to return to Count Dooku. As the Clone Wars ground on, Ventress issued substantial bounties on 82 members of the Jedi Order, all of them without the consent of the Republic Office of Criminal Investigations, which allowed every bounty hunter in the galaxy to try and capture them. This served two purposes. First, it helped eliminate many of the Jedi Knights. Second, it kept the rest of the Jedi Order busy defending themselves from bounty hunters while they were trying to bring an end to the conflict. She nearly killed Anakin Skywalker on Yavin 4 before escaping with her life, then captured Obi-Wan Kenobi on Jabiim, hoping to present the Jedi Master to Count Dooku as a gift. However, Obi-Wan managed to escape, taking Ky Narec's lightsaber with him. The loss of the weapon, which had been a symbol of Ventress' only guiding example, left her with a broken sense of loyalty. Near the end of the Clone Wars, Ventress guided the capture of the Intergalactic Communications Center on Praesitlyn, only to lose control of it to Anakin Skywalker's daring rescue operation. Ventress then began pleading with Dooku to take her as his apprentice, but Dooku refused. He knew that she would surpass him someday, and her skills only got more powerful the more she tried to impress him. Her loss of the Last Call and her failure to capture Yoda on Phindar did little to improve her standing in Dooku's eyes. After the escape of both Obi-Wan Kenobi and Quinlan Vos from the wreck of the Titavian IV, Ventress turned to desparate measures to regain favor with Dooku. She abandoned Tol Skorr at the wreck and followed the Jedi to Coruscant. There, after learning the truth behind Skywalker's relationship with Padme' Amidala, Ventress tried to kill the young Jedi Knight. However, Anakin's tactics put Ventress off-guard, and he was able to bind her with a set of electrical conduits, before throwing her off the top of a building. She was not seen again, although rumors of her came to Obi-Wan Kenobi through several channels. He continued to chase down every rumor, until even Anakin Skywalker became concerned that Obi-Wan was obsessed with killing her. Even after they discovered that it was Durge who killed Drama Korr, Obi-Wan still believed Ventress was still alive. He obtained information from Durge's pilot droid of a trip to Boz Pity, and there Obi-Wan discovered that Ventress' was being held in a form of stasis.

this was a common name among the Kushiban race. (UANT)

Asation
one of the main worlds of the Gree Enclave, Asation is home to the crafters of the Gree race. It is also the gateway for visitors to the Enclave, as any being wishing to travel to one of the other Gree worlds must board the Rokak'k Baran there. It is a wet, high-pressure world covered with slimy wetlands and primitive jungles. It is believed that the Gree terraformed the world many millennia ago, using genetically-altered lifeforms to populate it.

this is the outdated, Adumari form of a turbolift. (SOA)

Ascension Gun
this specialized version of the S-5 security blaster was often used by adventurers and scouts, although it had many other practical uses. Primarily developed by Captain Panaka, the ascension gun used a cylinder of compressed gas to project a heavy missile at a target. The missile could be tipped with a number of barbed points or attached to a grappling hook, depending on the method of ascension desired. Attached to the missile was a length of syntherope or other strong wire. The syntherope was then attached to a small but powerful winch located on the ascension gun's barrel. Once the missile was securley in position, the gun's user could activate the winch and be pulled upward to the missile. (TPM, IG1, NEGC)

Asdroni
this was the largest of three moons that orbited a remote Chiss outpost world in the Unknown Regions. (GMR7)

Asexual Professional Greenputt Tour
this was one of the primary series of greenputt matches held during the last decades of the Old Republic. Only those greenputt players who lacked sexual organs were allowed to compete. Many sports historians point to the formation of the APGT as the start of the sport's downward spiral into political correctness, as a wide variation of leagues sprang up afterward. (HNN4)

Ashaar Khorda
this Annoo-Dat radical started a small rebellion on his homeworld of Annoo, shortly after the Old Republic thwarted his attempt to take power for himself. General Khorda, a strong-willed being who didn't take well to failure, tried to take control of Annoo using military forces he had usurped from the government, but the Republic managed to install its own leader. General Khorda then went underground, fomenting rebellion while searching for the Infant of Shaa. He proclaimed to be a freedom fighter, combatting the injustice and tyranny of the Old Republic, and managed to gather a large following. General Khorda nearly succeeded in destroying the Infant near Coruscant's central power core, but was killed in a struggle with Jango Fett and the Jedi Master, Yarael Poof. (ZW)

Ashana
this female was the sister of Elinda, the original lead singer for the band known as the Twisted Rancor Trio. When Elinda refused to sing at Davik Kang's estate, some 4,000 years before the Battle of Yavin, Ashanda was hired by Gilthos Uksaris to replace her. (KOTOR)

Ashanda Ray
this modified MC-18 light freighter was owned by Kinnin Vo-Shay. The ship, with Kinnin at the helm, supposedly disappeared in the Tyus Cluster some fifty years before the Battle of Endor. The ship was designed and built by a Mon Calamari friend of Vo-Shay's, and was one-of-a-kind. Like all Mon Cal designs, the Ashanda Ray had an organic look to it, resembling an ocean-dwelling creature more than a starship. It was armed with a heavy triple-laser cannon, three proton torpedo launchers, and an ion cannon. (TFNR, SWJ13)

Ashandrik, Tern
this man was wanted by TaggeCo for a number of of offenses, including theft, trespassing, and murder. A bounty was placed on his head, shortly after the Battle of Yavin, and he fled to Seregar. On Seregar, Ashandrik befriended the Marauders swoop gang, using them to deflect minimal interference from bounty hunters. He employed the Twi'leki huntress Lliandri to lure more stubborn hunters to the Trigdale refinery in the jungles near Storrd Township, where he had holed up. His knowledge of the refinery helped him outwit other hunters, whom he eliminated at his leisure. Ashandrik managed to evade capture for a long time. (ND)

Ashern
this Vratix political party complemented the Zaltin and Xucphra factions of humans on Thyferra during the New Order. The Ashern were considered a terrorist group by the human factions, and was supposedly responsible for introducing contamination into a Xucphra bacta lot, at the direction of the Zaltin corporation. The origins of the Ashern could be traced back to the last decades of the Old Republic, during the early years of Alazhiaxazha, or the Thriving Season. Then known as the Razorclaws, these militant Vratix realized that their people would only be able to retain some measure of control over bacta production if they were able to understand and control the production of alazhi. To this end, the Ashern tried to develop a new strain of alazhi that would increase the effectiveness of bacta. This new strain of alazhi was destroyed about a year after it development, cementing the Ashern's role as terrorists rather than drivers of social change. Years later, Erisi Dlarit's uncle discovered a contaminate in lot ZX1449F, which was eventually traced back to the Ashern. The group was also known as Black Claw, in reference to the way in which they sharpened their foreclaws and painted themselves black to hide in the shadows. The Vratix became concerned about their human counterparts during the outbreak of the Krytos virus on Coruscant, seeing that the Imperial ties to the bacta cartels were becoming stronger. It was at this time that the Zaltin faction began supplying the Ashern with weapons and credits to maintain their attacks on Xucphra-aligned facilities. When they needed addiitonal help in planning their overthrow of Xucphra, they recalled Bror Jace from Rogue Squadron by falsely claiming his father was ill. They then arranged for Jace to "die" in an accident, making it possible for him to assist them without ties to any political body. They sent Qlaern Hirf to petition Wedge Antilles to champion the acceptance of the Vratix in the New Republic, in return for help in creating their own supply of bacta. Wedge agreed, but was unable to make a move when Ysanne Isard took control of Thyferra. (XWN, SWJ3, KT, BW, PH)

Ashern Circle
this body of Vratix leaders governs the Ashern society on Thyferra. (KT)

Ash'ett
this Yuuzhan Vong was a high-ranking member of the Intendent caste, during the height of the Yuuzhan Vong invasion of the galaxy. He was known to Nom Anor as a greedy and self-serving rival who rose to power after the fall of Coruscant. With the former capital world being reformed as a simulacrum of Yuuzhan'tar, Ash'ett grabbed territory and notoriety in an effort to gain more power for himself. He eventually became the leader of the Intendent caste on Coruscant. This made Ash'ett one of Nom Anor's first targets, after the former Executor had assumed the role of Yu'shaa, the Prophet who furthered the words of the Jedi Heresy. (FH3)

Ashgad, Seti
this political contemporary of Senator Palpatine was one of the future Emperor's main opponents. In political circles, he was known as the Golden Tempter, a tribute to his persuasive voice and charismatic speeches. He came from the hyperdrive design division of Incom Industries, where his major contribution was the design of the Z-95. During the height of the Clone Wars, Ashgad was a Senator himself, and suddenly disappeared after he argued against a measure to install surveillance cameras in the Senate buildings. Ashgad was sentenced to a prison term on the world of Nam Chorios, where he came to power by filling in the void left when the Hutt Beldorion failed to maintain his hold on the populace. As Ashgad rose to power, he was subverted by the droch Dzym, who used Ashgad as his figurehead. Dzym kept Ashgad alive for many years beyond his natural lifespan by continually "recharging" his life energy, and a story was developed that Ashgad had a son. Then, still lively and youthful, Ashgad appeared as his own son and took control of the Rationalist Party on Nam Chorios. He arranged a meeting with Leia Organa-Solo, at the behest of Dzym, in order for the droch to launch his own assault on the galaxy. Organa-Solo was captured, and specially-created holo-vids dispatched to indicate she left Ashgad in good hands. Ashgad held her in his own complex on Nam Chorios until she escaped. Dzym took Ashgad and tried to flee the planet after the natives rose up in revolt, but their ship was destroyed before they made it out of the system. (POT, LEV)

this gas giant was the fifth planet in the Chandrila System. It was orbited by nine moons. (CCW)

Ask Aak
this Gran Senator from the planet Malastare represented his homeworld to the Old Republic after Aks Moe was killed in a speeder accident. During the height of the Clone Wars, Senator Aak was a vocal opponent of the Jedi Knights, wondering aloud about their ability to lead the clone troopers of the Army of the Republic. He questioned the ability of a group of "peacemakers" to act as generals in the military, a stance he loudly reiterated after the defeats at the Battle of Jabiim and on Parcelus Minor. With the destruction of the Star of Iskin and the death of Finis Valorum, Senator Ask Aak found even more ammunition for his stance, which allowed him to speak eloquently in favor of the Security and Enforcement Act. (SWDB, HNN5, RDE)

Ask Argothil Anything

Askaj
this boiling-hot desert planet is the homeworld of the Askajian race. It was located in the Outer Rim, about a day's travel off the Rimma Trade Route. Note that the Star Wars Customizable Card Game claims the name of this planet is Askajia. (TJP, CCG7)

Askajian
a humanoid race with deep familial traditions, the Askajians live on the desert world of Askaj. Their bodies have become extremely efficient at absorbing and storing water. An Askajian can survive for long periods in the open desert, returning in a thinned state. Upon consuming water, their bodies seem to inflate, hoarding the water for later use. The females have six breasts, which come in handy following the delivery of a litter of cubs. The cubs are not named until after their first birthday. Many Askajians raise tomuons for their milk, meat, and wool. The Askajians are known for their luxurious fabric, woven from tomuon wool. Weavers and dancers were revered in Askajian society. Weavers bring income to the Askajian people, as tomuon fabrics fetch a high price throughout the galaxy. Dancers were important to the religious and historical aspects of their society, maintaining the tribal histories and legends. (TJP, THG, AE)

Askar
this Bothan clan originally discovered the Dresselian System, and settled in the system's asteroid belt to set up mining operations. They left the planet Dressel alone, recognizing that the evolving Dresselian race didn't need any interference. They were subjugated by Imperial forces that wanted the mining operations for their own uses, during the establishment of the New Order. (GG12)

Ask-ar
one of the six Tiss'shar races, the Ask-ar were characterized by the red, mask-like markings on their faces. (UANT)

Askar Rayl'skar
this Bothan was the leader of the Askar clan during the Caamas Incident, some ten years after the death of Grand Admiral Thrawn.

AS-M12
this spherical, general-purpose message droid was produced by Arakyd Industries during the New Order. It was known by the brand name of Seeker, and was designed to provide its owner with a safe, effective way to communicate across the galaxy without having HoloNet access. Designed around the basic Viper probe droid design, the AS-M12 droid traveled across the galaxy in a specially-designed, civilian version of he Viper's hyperspace pod. The droid was equipped with a variety of recording and playback devices, and had several methods of identification which it could use to verify the recipient's identity. (SESB, FTD)

Asmall
the New Republic established a defense net around this planet, shortly after the Battle of Endor. (WBC)

Asmeru
this planet was a dun-colored, arid world in the Senex Sector. Asmeru was once a world of wondrous cities and grand palaces, but a sudden climatic change forced the natives to flee to other worlds in the sector. In the interim years, the cities and buildings fell into disrepair and ruin from neglect. After the climate stabilized, the world was populated by Ossan slaves who were created on Karfeddion but found to be defective in some way. The slaves, bred for agricultural work, managed to survive and established their own culture on the planet. (COD)

ASN-121
this assassin droid was owned by Zam Wesell during the years leading up to the Clone Wars. ASN-121 was originally designed as a courier, but was modified in many ways to perform the duties of an assassin. It was equipped with an electrical field generator to protect it from being grasped or caught. A communications cylinder slot was modified by Zam, with the cylinder itself carrying kouhons or other deadly creatures which could not be traced to any individual. The chuck which held the cylinder was capable of holding a harpoon launcher or sniper blaster. Glass cutters allowed ASN-121 to quietly enter a building, and tiny repulsorlift engines allowed the droid to have incredible maneuverability. Zam Wesell used the droid to deliver a pair of kouhons to the apartment of Padme' Amidala, after the bounty hunter's attempt to execute the Senator when she landed on Coruscant failed. ASN-121 was caught by Obi-Wan Kenobi, but the droid managed to drag the Jedi Master on a thrilling ride through the aerial streets of Coruscant. In order to try and avoid capture, Zam Wesell was forced to shot the droid out of the sky. (TCG1, AOTC, SWI60)

Asonel Caves
this massive web of underground caverns and tunnels was located on the planet Prakith. The caves ran through the mountains just outside of Prak City, and were believed to have been created by ancient lava flows. The original settlers who came to Prakith discovered all manner of gemstones hidden in the caves, and outside mining interests eventually moved in and stripped the caves of their gems. Over time, the artificial tunnels created during the mining process left the caves unstable, and many cave-ins claimed the lives of miners. After the gemstones ran out and the mines were abandoned, the Asonel Caves becae a haven for criminals and rebels. (PH)

ASP-4
this model of the ASP-series droid was used to assist big-game hunters. (LOE)

ASP-6
this was a series of droids used to train living beings in the use of certain weaponry. The ASP-6 was armed with a vibroblade and a blaster. (LOE)

ASP-7
a series of ASP droids manufactured by Industrial Automation to be cargo movers. Like most other ASPs, they were thin constructs supported by hundreds of servomotors and hydraulic linkages, and could lift huge crates without a problem. Most have a single ocular receptor and minimal auditory sensors, although upgrades can be found. Because these droids were given feeble programming and minimal intelligence, most ASPs were heavily modified by their owners. (SWSE, MTSE, FTD)

ASP-704
this ASP-7 series droid was employed by the Imperial Prefect of Tatooine, shortly before the Battle of Yavin. It was part of a shipment of 200 units, ordered to install communications relays throughout Mos Eisley. The Mark IV Imperial probe droids that patrolled the city regarded the relays as illegal communications systems, and often called stormtroopers to investigate their perfectly legal installation. ASP-704 eventually developed a personality tic, and would strike out at a nearby Mark IV before it could interrupt its work. (MTSE)

ASP-707
a series of menial labor droids often used to transport heavy loads from one location to another. (CCG9)

Aspiration
this Victory-class Star Destroyer joined the Imperial forces shortly after the Battle of Endor, but its Captain defected with Prince-Admiral Krennel when he broke away from Imperial service. It was stationed in orbit around Corvis Minor Four, in defense of the system. It was dispatched to report on the destruction of Rogue Squadron near Corvis Minor Five, but arrived too late to report any concrete evidence. (IR)

ASP-series Droid
a tall, spindly general purpose droid manufactured by Industrial Automaton, the Asp-series can be configured for many purposes. The basic construction of the ASP-series is centered on a spindly body connected by hundreds of servomotors. Heavy-duty hydraulic linkages allow the droids to perform the heaviest of menial duties. (SE, SWSE, BTM)

Asran System
this planetary system was located in Brak Sector. (FBS)

Asrat
this planet was the home world of a group of religious pundits who worshipped a collection of holy children. Known simply as the Holy Children of Asrat, the children loudly denounced the New Order, so the Empire sent their trained assassin Dengar to kill them. Dengar's conscience suddenly began to resurface, and he opted to leave Imperial service rather than killing them. (TBH)

Assant, Darsha
this Jedi padawan was under the tutelage of Master Anoon Bondara shortly before the Battle of Naboo. She had been orphaned on Alderaan, and discovered at the age of four by Master Bondara and brought to Courscant. In order to complete her training and become a full Jedi Knight, Darsha was ordered by Mace Windu and the Jedi Council to recover Oolth the Fondorian from the Crimson Corridor of Coruscant. The humanoid had information which was vital to the Jedi, but was afraid to travel to the Jedi Temple because of the presence of the Raptors gang. Anoon wondered at the Council's choice of tasks, but Darsha was sure of her abilities. Unfortunately, she underestimated the Raptors, who disabled her skyhopper and forced her to flee with Oolth in tow. During their flight, Darsha lost her grip on Oolth, and the Fondorian fell several hundred level to his death. Ashamed, Darsha returned to the Temple and told Bondara about the accident, and the pair set out to see if Oolth had survived. They were caught in the crossfire of Darth Maul's attempt to execute Hath Monchar and Lorn Pavan, and Master Bondara sacrificed himself to allow the other to live. Darsha fell deeper into despair, but Lorn's acceptance of her served to bolster her confidence. They nearly survived to reach the surface of Coruscant, but Darth Maul attacked. In order to save Lorn's life and ensure that news of the Trade Federation's blockade of Naboo reached the Jedi, Darsha followed her Master's example and sacrificed herself in an effort to lure Maul into a trap. She collected fuel cells using the Force, while dueling Maul with her yellow lightsaber. Her plan nearly succeeded, but Maul managed to survive while Darsha was killed. In the end, she became one with the Force. (DMSH, COD)

Assassin
this was one of the multitude of Imperial-class Star Destroyers which made up the Imperial Navy fleet, during the height of the Galactic Civil War. (XW)

Assassin Droid
the name given to any number of droid types which were programmed to seek out and eliminate a specific target. They can be programmed to kill an individual, or to take out an entire population. There were also the so-called war droids used as guards and soldiers in many upstart planetary armies. The IG-series of assassin droids was among the best at performing their duties. They were banned during Palpatine's rule as Emperor, after they started to be used against Imperial forces. (ESB, COTF, SWSB)

Assassin's Guild
this band of assassins was formed during the last decades of the Old Republic. Analogous in many respects to the Bounty Hunters Guild, the Assassin's Guild worked with independent parties to match up death marks with available assassins. (RHD, MC48, MCI3)

Assassins' Guild
an infrastructure set up to oversee the various activities performed by galactic assassins. It has a number of subdivisions, geared toward the specific professions, such as bounty hunters. The Elite Circle are a separate subdivision catering to large clients. Given that the majority of its members are wanted criminals, the Guild's operations and central location are a secret. (HSL)

Assault Armor Division
this branch of the Imperial Army was responsible for the implementation of heavy machinery, such as AT-AT walkers. (NEGC)

Assault Cruiser
this form of warship was developed by the Bothans during the early years of the New Republic. Smaller in size that a Victory-class Star Destroyer, the Assault Cruiser boasted twenty percent more firepower and fifty percent more shielding and armor plating. It was leaner and less angular that the Victory-class ship, and was designed to take a beating while giving one out. The design and construction of these warships was heavily protested by many factions, since the Assault Cruiser was developed after the Imperial Remnant had negotiated a peace with the New Republic and the state of war between the two had been nullified. The ships proved to be excellent for carrying starfighters into battle, with a pair of huge hangars located amidships. The launch apertures from the ship allowed fighters to head up or down, depending on the conditions of battle, and made recovering fighters at the end of an engagement quick and easy. (DTO)

Assault Frigate
basically a modified 700-meter-long Dreadnaught-class starship, the assault frigate was stripped of its outer shell to increase engine capacity and fuel efficiency. Two dorsal solar fins were also added, increasing maneuverability and energy production. There were no docking bays on an assault frigate, but there were 20 retractable docking tubes that could be extended from the ship's holds. The assault frigate was also equipped with a great deal of droid and computer-automated systems. Thus, crew requirements for the assault frigate are just 5,000 beings, down from the 16,000 required on the original Dreadnaught. (HTTE, RASB, TTSB)

Assault Gunboat
generic name for the Cygnus Spaceworks Xg-1 Alpha-class starfighter. (XW)

Assault on Vardoss IV
this was one of the most famous historical battles of the Empire. (GFT)

Assault Shuttle
a 30-meter starship loaded with tractor beam projectors, sensor packages, harpoon guns, concussion missile launchers, and automated blaster cannons. Designed around the transportation and support of a 40 spacetrooper squadron, the assault shuttle had a crew of five and limited navicomputer capabilities. (ISB)

Assault Transport
a well-armed transport ship used by the Empire, such as the KonGar Ship Works ATR. (TIE)

Assemblage
this was the name given to the nearly-public forum established during the early years of the New Republic as the basis for its government. The Assemblage was made up of Senators and representatives, and the Provisional Council was drawn from its ranks. (DFR)

Assemblage Commons
this was the primary facility, established on Coruscant by the New Republic, in which matters of state were discussed with civilian audiences. The Commons was essentially a huge auditorium, with tiers of seats along the outer walls. A simple lectern or dais was located in such a position that all in attendance could see and hear the speaker. (DFR)

Assembler
this species of space-going arachnids is capable of exisiting in hard vacuum. Their exoskeletons contain the necessary proteins to protect them from decompression when traveling among the stars. Their homeworld's name and location are well-kept secrets. However, individuals can be found floating in the gaps between planets, most notably the middle-man Kud'ar Mub'at. Each assembler is comprised of a primary intelligence node and the web it controls. Each node can create subnodes from its own neural fibers, and can use them for a number of facilities. A subnode which outlives its usefulness can be re-ingested by the assembler, and the physical and genetic material can be reused. In this way, assemblers tends to be quite possessive, and will reuse anything they find to augment their webs. Each intelligent primary node is also quite jealous of its own intelligence, and will strive to keeps its subnodes form becoming too intelligent. Successive generations of assemblers often grow from these subnodes, whoever, and the strongest subnode will often consume its creator, continuing the line. Any assembler which dies, but is not consumed, can be brought back to life by the application of power and data mixed in the correct proportion. This allowed Boba Fett to re-animate Kud'ar Mub'at in order to determine Neelah's identity. (MA, HM)

Assessor
the Imperial customs frigate which once intercepted Roark Garnet as he tried to flee Imperial space. The Assessor was also the ship that intercepted Han Solo and Chewbacca during their most fateful Kessel Run.

It was commanded by Tybert Capucot. (RPG, RD)

Assocation of Free Trade Worlds
this group of activists was one of the many groups which mixed the politics of alien rights with business concerns. They were active during the last decades of the Old Republic. (COD)

Ast
this prefix, which was used in the names of many modern planets, was used by the Old Republic to denote a world which housed am ASTrocartographic research station. Over the centuries, the word Ast was simply used to describe the planet. (GMR9)

Ast Kikorie
this planet was located in the Moddell Sector of the galaxy. The prefix "Ast" was a remnant of the planet's history as an Old Republic astrocartographic research outpost, originally established to map the areas of Wild Space closed to the Moddell Sector. The Old Republic constructed a ring of orbital telescopes around Ast Kikorie, but eventually abandoned them when the Clone Wars broke out. Over time, the telescopes were abandoned but not forgotten. During the early years of the New Republic, astrocartographers found record of Ast Kikories' telescopes, and made the dangerous journey to the Moddell Sector in order to use "free" telescope time. The natives of the planet called it "Downbelow", a reference to the ring of telescopes and other docking platforms that fill Ast Kikorie's skies. (GMR9)

Astaal Vilbum
this Baragwin was a noted Jedi scholar, during the last decades of the Old Republic. He knew of several Jedi Holocrons which were stored in the Jedi Temple on Coruscant, and was one of the first to discover the Holocron which told of Volfe Karkko's imprisonment on Kiffex. This discovery led Mace Windu to dispatch a team to Kiffex to eliminate any threat from the re-awakened Anzati magician. (OWS, DRKN)

Asteroid 7785
this piece of rock was once part of the planet Alderaan. After Grand Moff Tarkin destroyed the planet, the resulting rubble formed a wide asteroid field known as the Graveyard. Shortly after recovering from the injuries he suffered during the Battle of Yavin, Darth Vader circulated a rumor that the Royal Palace of Alderaan had been discovered intact on Asteroid 7785. He hoped to lure Leia Organa and any other of the survivors of the battle to Alderaan, where Captain Janus Bonn waited for them. Vader then augmented the rumors by adding a story about the mining survey team discovering a survivor in the asteroid who claimed to be Bail Organa. Vader went so far as to build a replica of the Palace inside the asteroid, using motion sensors and other mechanisms to trap his victims inside. Unfortunately for Vader, a group of Alliance agents intercepted the message from Hanos Darr and Zaz Hamiroz before it reached Leia Organa, and arrived at the asteroid before she did. The trap was sprung, but without the victims Vader intended. In reality, a tiny fragment of the Royal Palace's underground stucture was discovered in the asteroid. (GA)

Astin
an Imperial Corvette operative during the Galactic Civil War. (TIE)

Astin, Fable
this tall, slender woman was a Captain in the Alliance military, and was the leader of the Harrier infiltration team. She was also a young Jedi in training. Fable was one of youngest beings ever appointed the rank of Captain, and at the age of 19 was also one of the youngest infiltration operatives. Her mother had been a Jedi Knight, and instructed Fable's father in its uses. When Fable's father was killed in a struggle with one of the Emperor's Inquisitors, Fable and her mother were forced to flee and hide from Palpatine's reach. Despite her military training and sensitivity to the Force, Fable was also easily distracted and moody. After her team suffered a loss during a mission to Nysza III, Fable was faced with the Dark Side of the Force in a confrontation with the Dark Jedi Vialco, who was guarding the Imperial communications bunker she was ordered to destroy. The bunker was taken out, but Vialco soundly defeated Fable in a short battle of wills. Later, in a chance encounter on the planet Iscera, Fable met Jaalib Brandl, and followed him back to Trulalis. There, she was introduced to Adalric Brandl, Jaalib's father, and was given instruction in the deeper use of the Force to help her defeat Vialco. Despite the needs of Harrier Team, Fable remained on Trulalis for many months, striving too hard and making more mistakes than she thought she was capable of making. During her training, Fable fell in love with Jaalib, a relationship that Adalric forbade. He sent Jaalib back to Iscera and called Vialco to Trulalis, provoking a battle that renewed their aggressions. She was unaware of Adalric's true intentions until she had defeated Vialco and refused to kill him outright. Adalric prodded her, then sent an image into her mind - that of Vialco recovering his lightsaber and lunging toward her. She spun her own lightsaber around and decapitated Vialco, only to snap out of the vision and realize that Vialco had never recovered the weapon. Adalric then imprisoned her, hoping to return her to the planet Byss as a gift to the Emperor. (SWJ8)

Astopone, Shasheva
this woman served the Alliance as a deep-cover agent on the planet Coruscant, during the height of the Galactic Civil War. She was well-known as the heiress of the fortune her father had made in the export business, and was one of the most generous sponsors of the Galactic Museum and the Skydome Botanical Gardens. Her secret life as an Alliance agent began when Bail Organa recruited her during the early years of the New Order. She agreed to help the Alliance by using her influence and position to meet with leaders of business and government, gathering information that she eventually passed on to the Alliance. However, she lived in fear of being discovered, and would only meet her contacts in highly-public places. (CCW)

Astral
this was the name of Lord Allic's personal ship. (MJEH)

Astral-8
produced by zZip Product Concepts, this twelve-meter-long luxury speeder was manfactured to provide its owner with the smoothest possible ride as well as all the amenities.

Astrogation Gazetteer
a regularly-published journal which describes the astrogation parameters required to fly from any planet to another planet. It keeps track of realspace and hyperspace positionings of spatial bodies, and details average trip durations. (RPG)

Astrogation Plotter
this device was used before the advent of modern, powerful navigation computers. A collection of slide rules, factor wheels, and slot charts, an astrogation plotter allowed a starship captain to plot out a pathway through space and hyperspace. They found a moderate following among smugglers and independent spacers during the height of the New Order, as backups to their nav computers. (PSG)

Astrogation Survey Team
this branch of the Old Republic's Science and Culture Administration was charged with charting and cataloguing the area beyond the known galaxy, during the period between the fall of the Sith Empire and the Great Sith War. (TOJC)

Astrogation Today
a periodical dedicated to the science and mechanics of astrogation. (HR)

Astrogator-class Starship
these probe ships are often called "flatfish" because of their shape. The Astrogator-class is a flat, sensor-studded survey ship, and is used to collect all sorts of data from orbit. They measured 35 meters in diameter, and required a crew of three. (BTS, CTD)

Astrographic Survey Institute
this New Republic agency was charged with the identification and survey of unexplored worlds. ASI defined the planetary coordinates used in navigation computers. (BTS, SOL)

Astrolabe
a New Republic Astrogator-class probe, it was rerouted from its normal survey mission to monitor the Koornacht Cluster just before the start of the Yevethan Great Purge. Etahn A'baht had asked his old friend, Kiles L'toth, to divert a survey ship to the Cluster before the Fifth Battle Group arrived there. However, the Astrolabe was discovered at Doornik-1142 by Vol Noorr and the Purity, which fired on the small survey ship and disabled it. The three crewmen were killed, and the entire incident was used by Nil Spaar as part of his plan to take over the New Republic. He publicly blamed Leia Organa-Solo for their deaths, since - he claimed - they were acting on her orders to scout out an invasion of the Cluster. (BTS, SOL)

Astromech Droid
these small droids were designed for use with small starfighters. They are basically self-contained navigation computers, but also are programmed for starship maintenance. Industrial Automation produced many of the best astromech droids, including the R2, R5, and R7 series. (SW, SCRE, DE1)

Astromech Heaven
this giant droid supermarket is located in the Lola Curich starport, on Lianna. In addition to selling new droids, Astromech Heaven provides service and repair facilities. (ML)

Astromech Voice Box
produced by Inustrial Automaton specifically for R-series astromech droids, this device allowed the droid to communicate with its owner in the Basic language. The Voice Box interpretted the beeps and whistles of the droid and emitted actual words, eliminating the need for a protocol droid interpreter. (GFT)

AS-X-DB
this was the designation of the diamond boron missiles which were produced by the Confederacy of Independent Systems on Pengalan IV, during the early stages of the Clone Wars. The AS-X-DB was an anti-starfighter weapon, designed to penetrate the thick armor of Old Republic warships and explode inside the craft. (SWI65)

Asyk
this was one of the many Bothan clans. Affiliation with the clan was indicated by the suffix 'syk added to an individual's family name. (GCG, WOTC)

Asylum Station
a name used by slave traders to denote Crseih Station. It is well-known among slavers because Hethrir uses it as a clearing house for the slaves he culls from the Empire Youth camp. (CS)

Asymptotic Approach to Divinity
this pilgrim ship was originally commissioned by a group of fanatical Verpine mathemagi, many decades before the onset of the Clone Wars. Being of Verpine manufacture, the ship was outfitted with bunks and systems that catered to the Verpine physiology. This included an obvious lack of an intercom system, since the Verpine could communicate via their organic systems. However, the mathemagi lost their savings in an investment scandal, and the Approach was left without a buyer. It was later purchased by a cruise company and renamed the Stardust. (YDR)

Asyr
this Bothan name was given to newborn females. It described a pleasant-smelling flower found on Bothawui. (GCG, WOTC)

Asyr
this plant, native to the planet Bothwaui, produced a pleasant-smelling flower. (GCG, WOTC)

Asyr Sei'lar
this female Bothan was living in the Invisible Sector of the Coruscant underworld when Rogue Squadron infiltrated the planet prior to the New Republic's assault on it. She was a member of the Alien Combine, noticeable by her black pelt, which is punctuated by white splotches on her chest, head, and hands. She tried to come onto Gavin Darklighter, who rejected her. She labeled him a bigot, and brought him to the Combine for punishment. Asyr soon discovered that Gavin was simply scared, and was as understanding of alien species as any non-human. She was a graduate of the Bothan Military Academy, graduating a year behind Peshk Vri'syk. This training earned her the respect of the Rogues and the New Republic, and she was given a place in the squadron following the liberation of Coruscant. She and Gavin became romantically involved, but were discreet about it. She was watched by Borsk Fey'lya, who had hoped that Asyr would remain loyal to the Bothan political ideals and could provide potentially damaging information about the Rogues. She refused his demands, and remained loyal to the Squadron. When Asyr and Gavin made their relationship public and decided to adopt children, Fey'lya stepped in to block their efforts. He felt that Asyr wasn't behaving in a Bothan-enough fashion, and told her in no uncertain terms that any further dalliance with Gavin would have serious repercussions. She once again refused to accept Fey'lya's demands, but also realized that she and Gavin would be unable to have the life they wanted. She went on a rampage, flying beyond herself during the assaults on Liinade III and Corvis Minor Five, until her ship collided with an enemy fighter over Corvis Minor Five. Her loss came as a shock to Gavin and the Rogues, who mourned her deeply. However, Asyr herself managed to survive, having been rescued by the Errant Venture. She swore Booster Terrik, Mirax Terrik, and Iella Wessiri to secrecy, leaving the New Republic in the hope of bringing about changes to Bothan society by working undercover. (WG, KT, IR)

Asyui-ln
this Dug phrase meant "not", and was used to negate a statement. (EOV, GMR9)

AT-69/C
see Aurek Trill 69/Cresh (JT)

ATA Pulse-wave Blaster
this hand-held, pulse-wave weapon was produced by Greff-Timms Industrial some 4,000 years before the Galactic Civil War. What the ATA lacked in range it made up for in destructive capability, although it lacked a stun setting. (TOJC, AEG)

AT-AA
this was the Imperial All-Terrain Anti-Aircraft vehicle. Similar in many respects to the AT-AT walker, the AT-AA moved on four legs. However, its stance was very low to the ground, like a huge lizard. A heavy flak pod sat atop the main section, for use against enemy aircraft. (FC)

Atali
this man served as the First Officer aboard the Mathayus, serving the Empire under the command of Admiral Coy. Atali was quick to ally himself with Darth Vader, when Emperor Palpatine dispacthed the Mathayus to Dargulli to track down a possible Jedi Knight. When a distress signal came from an Alliance base near Yorn Skot, Vader allowed Admiral Coy to take his ship and intercept the rebels. Unfortunately for Coy, the Alliance had laid a trap for the Imperials. The ship which was intercepted by the Mathayus was a decoy, laden with explosives that were set to go off should the ship's hull be breached. First Officer Atali sent with a team of stormtroopers to open the ship up, which set off the explosives and badly damaged the Mathayus's hangar bay. Atali and his team were killed in the explosion. (SWI62, SWEB)

Atanna, Gabrial
this man was the Imperial Senator from the planet Esseles, until the Emperor dissolved the Senate just before the Battle of Yavin. Senator Atanna was replaced by Moff Jander Graffe, and Atanna went into hiding. The Alliance launched an effort to rescue him, since Senator Atanna had been a spy for the Alliance during his tenure. Atanna and his entire family were moved to an Alliance safeworld. (SWJ3, SWJ7)

AT-AP
this small walker, known officially as the All-Terrain Attack Pod, was developed for the Old Republic during the height of the Clone Wars. The AT-AP moved about on two heavy legs, and the clamshell cockpit was completely enclosed. A heavy laser cannon was mounted on the nose, and a turret-mounted blaster cannon sat atop the AT-AP. (TCG10, VD3)

Atapap One
this planet was settled by Duros explorers during the early centuries of the Old Republic. (GMR2)

AT-AR
this variant on the Imperial AT-ST was known as the All-Terrain Advance Raider. The main cockpit was held lower than on an AT-ST, giving the AT-AR a more hunched appearance. The AT-AT was also faster than an AT-ST, and had better armor. (IWST)

Ataria City
this was the capital city of the planet Spira, located on the northeast coast of Ataria Island. (SWJ1)

Ataria Island
this island, located in the oceans of Spira, is the site of the planet's major spaceport and resorts. The island is formed on the north and west by spectacular cliffs, and by luxurious beachs on the east and south. During the height of the Galactic Civil War, the Empire maintained a small garrison on the island. (SWJ1)

Ataro
this was one of the older forms of lightsaber combat practiced by the Jedi Knights of the Old Republic. Practitioners used a two-handed defensive stance when facing an opponent, providing the Jedi with a balanced position from which to defend themselves. Once engaged, a Jedi using the Ataro form moved about with great athleticism, leaping into acrobatic movements to confuse and out-position their opponent. (LEV, E3N)

Ataru
this was the ancient term used to describe the Form IV lightsaber fighting style. (SWI68)

Atarul, Cammel
this Imperial investigator worked on the planet Tinnel IV during the early years of the Galactic Civil War. Investigator Atarul was dispatched to Moff Jerjerrod's personal estate, shortly after the Battle of Yavin, when the estate was robbed by the Tombat. (SWJ6)

AT-AT
this was the designation of the Imperial All-Terrain Armored Transport vehicle, an elephantine assault tank built at the Kuat Drive Yards. These 15-meter-tall machines lumbered around on four articulated legs. Note that Inside the Worlds of the Star Wars Trilogy indicates that an AT-AT stood 22.5 meters tall. They required a crew of three to operate, although much of the war machine's motion was controlled by sophisticated artificial intelligence. The AT-AT could carry up to 40 troops and 400 kilograms of cargo. Armed with two fire-linked heavy laser cannons and two fire-linked medium blasters on its head-like cockpit, the AT-AT was designed to inspire fear in the enemies of the Empire. General Veers was a proponent of the AT-AT, and purposely overlooked the fact that the AT-AT could be toppled by a cable wrapped around its legs. Although this weakness was used effectively by the Alliance on Hoth, the Empire continued to use the AT-AT to instill fear. (ESB, DFRSB, TME, IWST)

AT-AT Barge
this Imperial ship was designed to carry a fully-outfitted AT-AT walker from its berth on a Star Destroyer to the surface of a planet. It was similar in shape to the MTT assault craft employed by the Trade Federation. (FC)

AT-AT Swimmer
a version of the Imperial walker that was used in aquatic environments, the All-Terrain Aquatic Transport was designed with the main section of the body expanded and flattened out in order to accommodate the addition of repulsor engines that helped keep it afloat. The Swimmer was heavily armored and protected from the effects of salt and water, and resembled a huge turtle. It required a crew of five, and could transport up to 40 troops and 600 kilograms of cargo. It was armed with a pair of modified heavy laser cannons which could fire underwater, and a pair of medium blasters. (GG9, SWI81)

Atawar
a Ripoblus escort shuttle used during the Sepan Civil War, as well as in battle against the Empire. (TIE)

At-cyb Husher
this small, self-contained communications implant was developed by Crozo Industrial Products. Designed to be surgically implaneted near the user's larynx, the At-cyb Husher allowed the user to subvocalize their messages by manipulating their tongue and jaw muscles. These movements were converted into communications signals and sent to a receiver, which then produced the equivalent of speech. (EGW)

Aterph
this Devaronian once stopped at the Farrimmer Café, claiming that he had left his nagging wife and needed a drink to calm his nerves. He was later wanted by the Mynock 7 Space Station authorities for questioning, as it was believed he was a bomber and an assassin. A group of mercenaries discovered that Aterph had hidden bombs in several locations throughout the station, including the Farrimmer. (SWJ11)

Atgar SpaceDefense Corporation
manufacturers of cost-effective, low-powered anti-vehicle weapons and defense systems. (RPG, ISB, SWDB)

Ath
this archaic name was given to female Zabrak, and referred to the being in Zabrak mythology who welcomed Zabrak into the afterlife. (GCG)

Ath
this female name was common among the Kel Dor. Like all Kel Dor given names, it was short enough that it didn't attract the attention of certain wind spirit, which would carry away young children with long-winded names. (GCG)

Ath
this figure was from the Zabrak mythology. Together with her sister, Nath, Ath welcomed dead Zabrak into the afterlife. (GCG)

Athakam II Med Unit
developed by Athakam Medtech, this device was sometimes referred to as a medbed. Equipped with a repulsorlift engine, the Med Unit could transport a being while diagnosing and, if possible, administering treatment for a variety of injuries and illnesses. The Med Unit could transport the injured being to a hospital with a simple push. A 2-1B medical droid could also access the Med Unit, further enhancing its diagnostic capability. (GFT)

Athakam MedTech
this bio-technology company worked closely with Rhinnal State Medical Academy, and developed a number of medical tools like bioscan units. Although much of the company's work was meant to save lives, there were several experiments into the development of chemical weapons. These proved too costly to continue, and Athakam returned to its pacifistic roots. During the Galactic Civil War, Athakam remained outwardly neutral, although its leadership secretly provided medical supplies to Leia Organa and the Alliance. (SESB, EGW, NEGW)

Athallian Messenger
this legendary courier ship crashed in the Tatooine desert some forty years before the Battle of Yavin. Sandstorms were supposed to have erased any remnant of the ship, including a treasure trove of gemstones hidden in its holds. Many treasure-hunters disappeared while trying to locate it, and it was said that even the Jawas wouldn't go near the place where it supposedly crashed. (SWG9)

AT-HE
this All-Terrain Heavy Enforcer walker was produced during the build-up to the Clone Wars, as a complement to the AT-TE. (X2)

this Rodian award was given to bounty hunters of the Goa-Ato in a variety of categories, such as Best Shot and Most Notorious Capture. (SPG)

AT-IC
this was the designation of an unusual walker created by the Empire, known as the All-Terrain Ion Cannon walker. These were essentially walking ion cannon platforms, with all cargo space dedicated to the weapon and its systems. (NEGW)

Atin
this was the name used by clone commando RC-3222. In the Mandalorian language, the word atin meant stubborn, and RC-3222 lived up to this name. He was one of the many commandos who was dispatched to Geonosis during the opening battle of the Clone Wars. He was also one of the handful of commandos who saw the rest of his team killed in battle. Unfortunately, on his second mission, Atin was once again the sole survivor. Atin held a great deal of anger and personal responsibility for the deaths of so many others, despite the fact that he himself only barely survived the fighting. He was constantly reminded of their deaths by a horrible scar that ran across his face, and he refused to have it treated so that he would not forget them. This deep-seated emotion made it hard for Atin to fit in with the other commandos who were put together to form Omega Squad. Another difference was in his training, as Atin was the only member of Omega Squad to train under Walon Vau. Atin's natural skill was with weapons of any sort, and he often chose unusual weapons for missions, based on the parameters he expected to encounter. During the final stages of the mission to capture Ovolot Qail Uthan, Atin was hit with a blast from a Verpine shatter gun while carrying Uthan's unconscious body to the extraction point. The blast splattered against his armor and caused a large amount of damage, but Atin and Uthan both ultimately survived. (RCHC)

Atin
this was the Mandalorian word for "stubborn." (RCHC)

Atin Attan
this Sullustan female was one of the eight members of the Twilight Class of the Galactic Outdoor Survival School who became part of the Alliance's Eclipse Team. She excelled in the field of geology, and was also a skilled pilot. After graduating from GOSS, she served the Alliance as a pilot instructor in the Roche Asteroid Field, and was part of the team which developed the B-Wing. (AIR)

ATL
this Air-To-Land vehicle was similar in shape to the cockpit of a Y-Wing bomber, but had a pair of retractable landing foils on either side. (DCAR)

Atlatl
this was the traditional Gungan throwing stick, a weapon developed to fling small energy balls at an enemy in battle. Although the range of the atlatl is much less than the cesta, the atlatl is much more accurate. (IG1)

Atloran
the third planet in the Panto System, Atloran is a lifeless sphere that has nonetheless been used for recreation. It is known for its zero-gravity campgrounds and amusement parks. (DFRSB)

Atmosphere Containment Field
an field-projecting device which generates an impenetrable energy field used to keep an atmosphere on only one side of the field. They can be used on space stations or capital ships to keep the atmosphere inside the docking bays until the starfighters need to launch. They can conversely be used to keep a hostile planet's storms and harsh weather out of a building. (SW, COTF)

Atmosphere Flyer
a generic term for any low-altitude repulsorcraft, such as the T-16 skyhopper. (CSW)

Atmostide
this is the name given to any atmospheric storm caused on planets which have little or no natural water. (POT)

this man, a native of the planet Curulag, was a member of the first class ever to pass through the Corulag Academy. After his graduation, Ato served as a sniper and bodyguard in the Imperial Army before being transferred back to Corulag. He was assigned to monitor the activities of the Corulag Academy, secretly ferreting out any support or sympathy for the Alliance. (CCW)

Atom, The
see Force Multiple Orbit (SWED)

Atomic Drive
an out-dated form of ion drive, the atomic drive was replaced by the Hoersch-Kessel Ion Drive. These drives use a fission reactor to generate electromagnetic waves that reflect off the space-time fabric of realspace, creating momentum. They are extremely radioactive, and must be stored in a pod that is kept away from the living and working areas of the rest of the ship. (SWSB)

Atomic Reactor
an out-dated form of power converter, the atomic reactor has been replaced by the fusion reactor. It employed atomic fission to generate energy, which in turn generated large amounts of heat and radiation. This made them very dangerous to use. (SWSB)

Ator
this planet was located in the Core Worlds. (VD2)

Atori, Otias
this native of Trulalis was Adalric Brandl's mentor. Otias was a famous theatrical actor before becoming a director and acting teacher. He was unable to keep Brandl from answering Palpatine's call to become a Dark Jedi, and strove to save Adalric's young son, Jaalib, from a similar fate. Otias reprimanded Brandl when he returned to Trulalis some twelve years later, although Brandl hoped that he could assist in returning to the light side of the Force. (TFE, SWJ8)

AT-PT
this was Kuat Drive Yards' All-Terrain Personal Transport vehicle, built from plans and designs originally developed by Rothan Heavy Engineering. A squat, single-pilot transport which was developed about the time of the Katana fleet but which was never mass-produced, it was similar to the AT-ST, only smaller in stature. It was armed with a twin blaster cannon and a concussion grenade launcher. The AT-PT measured four meters in length and stood three meters tall, and could accommodate up to 150 kilograms of cargo. The primary mission of the AT-PT was to give an individual all the firepower of an assault vehicle, while remaining extremely maneuverable and fast. Because the New Order was implemented before the AT-PT could be put into production, it never became available to the civilian market. The Empire later rejected the AT-PT in favor of the larger AT-ST. (DFR, DFRSB, AEG, NEGV)

AT-PV
this was the short name for Slythor the Squib's All-Terrain Pleasure Vehicle known as the Peeve. It was a salvaged Imperial AT-AT walker, with the legs removed and replaced with four repulsorlift engines. (OE)

ATR
KonGar Ship Works' Assault Transport ship, the ATR measures 45 meters in length. Rated at 65 MGLT, these ships were larger and better-armed versions of the original stormtrooper transports built by Telgorn Corporation. The hull of the ATR is rated at 50 RU. Each ATR is equipped with the following shipboard components:

  • 4 Taim & Bak H6 Turbolasers
  • 2 ArMek SW-3 Ion Cannons
  • 2 Krupx MG7 Proton Torpedo Launchers (4 torpedoes each)
  • Front/Rear Projection shields (100 SBD)
(TIE)

ATR-4
this was a modified version of the base KonGar Ship Works ATR assault transport. It was considered a member of the Gamma-class transport family. (XWA)

Atraken
this planet is the second world in the Kattellyn System, and was ravaged during the Clone Wars. The once-beautiful landscape supported Human and Ee life, but was reduced to an arid wasteland after a prolonged battle between the Army of the Republic and the forces of the Confederacy of Independent Systems. There were few survivors of the Battle of Atraken, when Separatist forces unleashed biochemical weapons in order to defeat the clone troopers of the Old Republic. Although the Old Republic claimed that Operation Katabatic was a success, the chemicals unleashed by the Separatists seeped into the soil and continued to kill of the natives for many years to follow. Many inhabitants fled to the moon of Trilos to live in pressurized settlements. Atraken rotates once every twenty standard hours. Its year lasts 304 local days. It has three moons. (PG2, SWI67)

At'raoth
this female Yuuzhan Vong was a member of the Shamed Ones who lived below the surface of Coruscant, after it was transformed into the likeness of Yuuzhan'tar. At'raoth was also a devote follower of the prophet Yu'shaa, who was actually Nom Anor in disguise. She was the first of The Select to be dispatched to the offices of Supreme Overlord Shimrra, in an effort to gather intelligence on the ruling elite of Yuuzhan Vong society. Unfortuantely for At'raoth, she barely reached the antechambers of Shimrra's offices before she was discovered. As she was killed by the irksh poison hidden in a false tooth, she screamed her defiance by invoking the name of Ganner Rhysode and the Jedi. While this was not part of Nom Anor's plans, it did show Shimrra that The Message of the Shamed Ones was gathering momentum. (FH2)

Atrium, The
this was the name given to the grand entry hall of the Senate Rotunda, located on the planet Coruscant. Located just behind the Great Door, The Atrium was lined with statues of the Old Republic's greatest heroes and politicians. After Coruscant was taken over by the Yuuzhan Vong, much of the Atrium was destroyed during Ganner Rhysode's attempt to hold off the warriors who were pursuing Jacen Solo and Vergere. However, during the reshaping of Coruscant into a new version of Yuuzhan'tar, parts of the Atrium were rebuilt to create a vast, yorik-coral cavern which served as the antechamber to the Well of the World Brain. (T, UF)

Atrivis Resistance Group
born from the resistance groups on Fest, the ARG was created when firm communications links were formed between Fest and Mantooine, as well as with other resistance pockets in the Atrivis Sector. The command of the ARG was set up on an abandoned space station in the Generis System, and was fed by a complex underground information network. When Mon Mothma asked them to link their network with the growing, galaxy-wide Alliance, there was heated discussion among the ARG's leadership, but they eventually agreed, signing the Treaty of Generis and officially joining the War. (RASB)

Atrivis Sector
area of the galaxy which contains Generis, located in the Outer Rim. (TLC)

Atron's Mistress
Greezim Trentacal's slaving ship, it also served as his personal command center. The Mistress was a custom-built Zuraco cargo hauler, measuring 87.3 meters in length and armed with a single turret-mounted medium turbolaser. The inside of the ship was large enough to transport up to 185 enslaved beings, along with a crew of four. Trentacal rarely left the safety of the ship, and his quarters were well-appointed. (SWJ8, TFE)

AT-RT
this small, one-trooper walker was the predecessor to the AT-PT and AT-ST. The All-Terrain Reconnaissance Transport was originally created for use by the Grand Army of the Republic during the height of the Clone Wars, and could be configured in a variety of ways, depending on the environment into which it was deployed. Armaments were usually mounted to the "chin" of the AT-RT, and included a laser cannon or a missile launcher. The primary drawback to the AT-RT was its lack of a sealed cockpit, thus exposing the pilot to enemy fire. Many felt that this was not a drawback at all, since it provided the pilot with a 360-degree view of the battlefield. Regardless, the AT-RT was often used in localized policing or mop-up actions in the wake of the main battle. (OWS, TCG10, X3)

AT-ST
All-Terrain Scout Transport vehicle; a two-legged version of the AT-AT, used as a scout vehicle and in areas where agility is required. The 8.6-meter-tall AT-ST was mass-produced by the Balmorrans, and was also built by Kuat Drive Yards. It has a crew of two, and can transport up to 40 kilograms of cargo. It is armed with a twin blaster cannon, and twin light blaster cannon, and a concussion grenade launcher. Because of its small size, the AT-ST lacked a dedicated power supply. Instead, it used disposable, high-intensity power cells, which tended to limit the AT-ST's range. What it lacked in firepower, the AT-ST made up for in maneuverability, and its two legs were capable of moving the walker at speeds near ninety kilometers an hour over open terrain. (ESB, ROTJ, DE2, DFRSB, EGV, CCG10, ICS, TCG6)

AT-ST/A
this variant of the original AT-ST design is significantly larger than a basic AT-ST, standing over 10 meters in height. The AT-ST/A has improved gyro-balancing systems, and their legs have greater reinforcement. They are armed with a single heavy blaster cannon. (EGV)

this starfighter attack formation was developed the Royal Naboo Defense Force, and was designed to have three N-1 starfighters take out a small capital ship. (SFT)

Attack Pattern Zeta-Gamma One
this starfighter flight arrangement was developed by the Royal Naboo Defense Force, during the Old Republic. It allowed a more experienced squadron of fighters to lead a squadron of green pilots into battle. (SFT)

Attack Stohl
this creature was native to the planet Ichtor 8, where it was discovered by Imperial scouts who recognized its commercial value. Averaging just over a meter in length, attack stohls are warm-blooded predators whose bodies are covered with a thick pelt of downy-soft fur. Their mouths were studded with sharp fangs, which injected a poison into the bloodstream of their victims. They were considered a petty nuisance by the Imperials, and their curiosity first endeared them to hunters. However, it was soon realized that these slow-moving creatures could be trained as pets. For an extremely high price, a person could own a beautiful stole-like wrapping for their neck, which would attack any being which got too close for personal comfort. The ownership of attack stohls was popularized by Shantee Ree, who owned one and started a campaign to ensure the survival of the species. (COG)

Attahox

The Attanni strips away emotion and lays bare the knowledge and memories of both parties. (TBH)

Attark
this Hoover lived in Jabba the Hutt's Tatooine residence. (CCG7)

AT-TE
this immense, six-legged vehicle was the forerunner of the Imperial AT-AT. Known as an All-Terrain Tactical Enforcer, the AT-TE provided the Army of the Republic with a formidable vehicle for bringing troops into the midst of battle. The original designs for the AT-TE were developed as a mining vehicle, but it was swiftly adapted to military uses. Measuring 12.4 meters in length and standing just over five meters tall, the AT-TE was armed with six anti-personnel laser turrets and a heavy projectile cannon. It could transport twenty clone troopers into battle, and carried an IM-6 medical droid for remote battlefield treatment. The crew of an AT-TE was made up of a pilot, a spotter, four interior gunners and a gunner for the exterior projectile launcher. The armor plating of the AT-TE was shielded from ion attack by built-in electromagnetic shields. Capable of speeds near 60 kilometers an hour over ground, the AT-TE was deployed onto the battlefield by an LAAT/c gunship. The AT-TE was commisioned by the Kaminoan cloners who were employed by Jedi Master Sifo-Dyas, so that their clone troopers could safely be deployed into battle. The Kaminoans contracted Rothana Heavy Engineering to build these vehicles, steering clear of any corporation with ties to either the Trade Federation or the Separatists. Due to the timing of the clandestine development of the clone troopers and the development of the AT-TE, the armor design created for the clone troopers produced by the Kaminoans was not finalized when the AT-TE was first developed. Thus, the driver and spotter working in the AT-TE were forced to squeeze themselves and their armor into the cramped cockpit. In the wake of the Battle of Geonosis, when the AT-TE series first saw duty, they were often deployed in swarms to take out as much of the enemy's holdings as possible in a short period of time. (TCG1, X2, SWDB, SWI64, LAWS)

Attention to the Moment Gives Knowledge
this was one of many Jedi training exercises used by the students of the Jedi Temple on Coruscant, before they were chosen as Padawan learners. The students were required to close their eyes and, using only the Force, observe their surroundings in great detail. (HP)

Atti
this Shyriiwook word was used as the prefix to many Wookiee names. It translated into Basic as "Father", "Mother", or "first", and could be combined with one or more suffixes to form a complete Wookiee name. (GMR10, GCG)

Attichitcuk
this great, gray Wookiee was the father of Chewbacca, who often went by the nickname Itchy. At the time of the Battle of Yavin, Attichitcuk was nearly 350 years old, and had been one of the leaders of the Wookiee people during the Old Republic. He was a skilled hunter and warrior, and was known to have killed and entire pack of twenty katarns which attacked him in the jungle. He also represented Kashyyyk when the Old Republic started negotiations for colonization rights to Alaris Prime. He was awarded the honor of being part of the initial colonization force as a reward for his work during the negotiations. However, on Alaris Prime he discovered that the Trade Federation had illegally set up its own base of operations. Attichitcuk was forced resort to battle, working with his fellow Wookiees to drive the Federation off. Jedi Master Qui-Gon Jinn and his Padawan, Obi-Wan Kenobi, were dispatched from Coruscant to help settle the conflict. During the Clone Wars, Attichitcuk was too old to actively fight, but served as a gunner and weapons expert aboard an Oevvaor jet catamaran during the defense of Kachirho. Years later, after Chewbacca was freed from Imperial slavery by Han Solo, it was Solo who gave Attichitcuk the nickname Itchy. (WSB, TT, GB, GBC, X3)

Attiera
this female Wookiee and her child, Froera, were members of the Myyydril tribe, during the years leading up to the Clone Wars. (SWGAL)

Atuarre
this Trianii female was born to a life of comfort and peaceful contemplation on the planet Trian. She had no dreams of becoming a Trianii Ranger, until she fell in love with Keeheen. They were soon married, and Atuarre began training as a Ranger. Atuarre became pregnant during her training, and had to break it off when she gave birth to Pakka. The family moved to the Trianii colony world of Fibuli, where their services as Rangers were needed. However, this idyllic family life was quickly shattered when the Corporate Sector Authority moved in and annexed the Trianii colony worlds, including Fibuli. Keeheen resisted with every ounce of his being, and he and Pakka were taken prisoner and sent to prison to ensure their silence. Atuarre, bereft of her family, began to concentrate on becoming the best Ranger she could possibly be, and quickly was elevated to Ranger status. She then set out to find her husband and son. Atuarre managed to rescue her son during a prisoner transfer in Authority space, but could not find her mate. Pakka's traumatized state hardened her resolve to defy the Authority and find Keeheen. She joined Rekkon's team in order to discover his whereabouts, working as an apprentice agronomist. She later helped Han Solo break the secret of Stars' End by impersonating Madam Atuarre, the leader of a band of entertainers sent to Stars' End by as a replacement for another act. There, she was able to rescue Keeheen. They returned to Trianii space, where Atuarre became a physical trainer for the Ranger cadets. Atuarre is distinguishable by her striped pelt, yellow and green eyes, and her meter-long tail. She was a native of the planet Trian. (HSE, CSA)

this Rendili StarDrive commercial hyperdrive was a moderately expensive way to back up a starship's basic hyperdrive. It was rated about a fourth the speed of a stock hyperdrive. (GG6)

AT-XT
developed by the Old Republic for used during the Clone Wars, the All-Terrain Experimental Transport walker was considered the predecessor to the modern AT-ST scout. They were developed as smaller counterparts to the AT-TE tank, for deployment into cramped battle arenas. However, because the designers at Rothana Heavy Engineering were continually revising its design, the AT-XT never saw full production. Many of its systems and design aspects were later reused in the development of the AT-ST walker. The basic AT-XT was to have been armed with a heavy laser cannon and a proton missile launcher. (SWI68, KOTOR, NEGV)

A-type Droid
this was an outdated model of droid, often found in early Alliance units. (SFE)

Atzerri
this temperate planet was part of the trail Akanah followed, in her search for the Fallanassi. She and Luke Skywalker went to Atzerri after they failed to locate the Fallanassi on Teyr. The planet is the site of a shipyard at which Lando Calrissian was shown the damage that occurs to a ship's systems due to entry and exit from hyperspace. Atzerri was one of the member planets of the Free Trader Worlds. Later, Atzerri was one of the first worlds overrun by the Yuuzhan Vong. (SOL, HT)

Aubade
this is the name of the style of music performed by jizz bands. (ROJR)

Auben
this young girl eked out a meager existence as a thief on the planet Korriban, during the years following the Battle of Naboo. She found a makeshift residence in the Sith monastery beneath Dreshdae's plateau, a place where very few other beings chose to visit. Auben earned a few credits selling various items that she had stolen, usually from visiting starships. When Anakin Skywalker and Ferus Olin approached her, during their mission to apprehend Granta Omega, they were pointed to Auben as a source of information. She agreed to help them, but they found themselves pursued by the droid armies of the Commerce Guild. Auben led them to the lowest levels of the monastery, where an ancient hangar bay provided the only escape route. Unfortunately, the Sith Lord who was on Korriban to meet Granta Omega discovered her in the hangar and killed her when she got in his way. (JQ10)

Aubendo
this was one of the two major cities, along with tacto, found on the planet Radnor. Together, they were considered the Twin Cities. Some five years after the Battle of Naboo, Aubendo was also known as the Isolation Sector, when a plague was unleashed in the city. The two cities were isolated from each other, in order to minimize the spread of the plague. (JQ1)

Aubro Ahntanda
this Sullustan male was a noted slave lord. (WSV, UANT)

Aucellis Park
this immense amusement park, owned and operated by Emo Aucellis, was created as an homage to his former career as an explorer and historian. The attractions and shows were meant to represent events in his career which were momentous, although many regarded the attractions as much more exciting than Aucellis' own life. It was also a widely-held belief that Aucellis Park was nothing more than a tourist trap, filled with thousands of ways to separate a visitor from their credits. Unknown to most visitors, however, Aucellis Park was also a cover for a large-scale, Imperial re-education facility. The rides and attractions were designed to place beings in a more impressionable state of mind, while the food and beverages were laced with chemicals to reduce inhibitions and keep people open-minded about what they saw while visiting the Park. The underlying theme of the park revolved around the notion that exploration was good, so long as it was done in the name of the Empire. Thousands of security cameras swept the grounds, looking for people who spoke out against the Park's ideals or, more specifically, the Empire. These individuals were quickly escorted to an area beneath the part for re-education. The perimeter of the park was continually monitored by no less than 312 security droids and six destroyer droids which served as squad leaders, and additional security cameras were hidden in nearly every sign found throughout the park. (WOA27)

Aucellis Park: Your Ideal Vacation
this promotional brochure was designed to lure beings to Keriba VI, so that they could visit Aucellis Park. (WOA27)

Aucellis, Emo
this somewhat reputable explorer and historian created Aucellis Park, on the moon of Keriba VI, as a testament to his own life's work. While the Park provided visitors with many thrilling rides and attractions, they were much more exciting that Aucellis' own life. (WOA27)

Audacious
this Lianna-class corvette was of the customs patrol fleet that worked in the Lianna System during the Galactic Civil War. When the Audacious discovered smugglers or pirates, it would herd their ships toward its sister ship, the Reliant, which remained just outside sensor range. Modified from the basic design, the Audacious measured 150 meters in length and was armed with six double turbolaser cannons. (ML)

Audio Drone
this small device is used by individuals who wish to mask the fact that they are no longer in a given location.

this was the third of seven seasons experienced on the planet Guiteica. (AE)

Aul Tarrus Vishav
this Bitthaevrian held the rank of Major-Guardian within the m'Yalfor'ac Order. Born a slave in the Upper Bal'ta'ran Cluster, he grew to incredible size due to the continual labor he was forced to do. The skin on his arms was striped, due to a bout with sinjaffe which seemed to slow him down for only a few days. This size and strength was perceived as a threat by his slavemaster, and was ordered to be executed. He managed to escape when his guards underestimated him, and his escape made him legendary among the slaves of the bal'ta'ran crystal mines. He entered the m'Yalfor'ac Order as a footsoldier, and worked his way upward until he became the personal bodyguard of Quaal Tavier Catharius. He proved his loyalty to Tavier when he singlehandedly defeated three attackers sent by the rogue Jael Ganton Farvash, thereby thwarting Ganton's attempt to assassinate Tavier. Tarrus was revered as a hero, and was considered by many to be almost an equal of Tavier himself. Tavier bestowed upon Tarrus the Ransar Rhal Insignia, which practically ensured his position as successor to Tavier's leadership. (AIR)

Aunuanna
this woman was Aurra Sing's mother. Aunuanna was addicted to various forms of spice, and survived on Nar Shaddaa by eking out a meager existence selling Gizer Ale to passing beings. Aunuanna was believed to have been using spice while she was pregnant, which resulted in her daughter's connection to the Force. Years later, she helped Mace Windu and Depa Billaba located the source of the illegal akk dogs being smuggled from Nar Shaddaa. (ETM, OWS)

Aurebesh
this was one of the dominant written forms of communication used throughout the galaxy, and allows any race to write the phonetics used by the Basic language. Note that Specter of the Past indicates that the Aurebesh is a language that had a somewhat better ability to convey technical information that Basic. (SOP)

Aurek
this is the first symbol in the Aurebesh script, and represents the Basic letter "a". (SWM)

Aurek Company
this was a division of the Imperial 501st Legion of stormtroopers, serving the Empire of the Hand during the years following the cease-fire between the Imperial Remnant and the New Republic. Aurek Company was among the first Imperial forces dispatched to Kariek, after the United Tribes of Kariek requested Imperial assistance in removing the Warlord from power, some twenty-two years after the Battle of Yavin. Unit Aurek-Seven was assigned to act as the personal guard for Commander Chak Fel, when he accompanied the Chiss and Luke Skywalker and his wife, Mara Jade Skywalker, on a mission to locate the remains of the Outbound Flight Project. (FB, SQ)

Aurek Team
this was the name given to one of the teams of clone troopers and Old Republic Intelligence officers who led the search for Darth Sidious on Coruscant, during the final days of the Clone Wars.

Auril Systems
this group of Core star systems was originally composed of nine unique systems. During the Great Sith War, three of the systems were destroyed, creating the area of the galaxy known as the Cron Drift. The remaining six systems remain intact, including the Adega System and the spaceport world Nespis VIII. (TOJ, DE2)

Aurin, Madelein
author of Heroes of the Republic. (GG9)

Aurodium
this valuable ore was refined and used for currency by the Trade Federation, during the last decades of the Old Republic. The Federation would only accept bribes in the form of aurodium ingots, since they could be easily moved about without interference from the Republic. (COD)

Aurodium
this metal was considered a valuable commodity during the last decades of the Old Republic, and a large ingot could command more than 300 million Republic credits. The metal, especially in ingot form, appeared to burn with an inner light which refused to have a definite color. (RP)

Aurora, Odea
this jewelry maker worked to make a living in the back of a landing bay on Cloud City, but was a member in good standing of the Parliament of Guilds. She was also an Alliance sympathizer, and acted as a contact point for Alliance agents traveling to Bespin during the Galactic Civil War. Odea was orphaned at the age of six, when her mother tried to go into business as a shipper on Cloud City. Toln ne Yerres had her executed when she mistakenly transported goods stolen from Jabba the Hutt, and Odea was told to never to return to her mother's ship. She was thirteen at the time of the Battle of Hoth. (GG2)

Aurorient Express
this immense, ray-shaped luxury cruiser was owned and operated by Clode Rhoden. The ship was a symbol of the alien's wealth and status, and made a perfect target for the eco-terrorist group known as the Green Forge. The alien named Buck insinuated himself into the Rhoden family by serving as Madam Rhoden's personal trainer. He then convinced her to destroy the ship and kill her husband, as part of a plot to aquire his life insurance policy. To cover his tracks, Buck created a diversion by making it appear that the Aurorient Express had been attacked by pressure pirates. Unfortunately for Buck and Madam Rhoden, the ship actually was under attack by pressure pirates, who used Fastlach-class defense droids to tear apart key sections of the ship. The various plans to steal the wealth of Clode Rhoden and the cargo of the Aurorient Express were thwarted by Qui-Gon Jinn and his Padawan, Obi-Wan Kenobi. However, after all parties decided to take their differences to the courts, Bouyardy and Waverton allowed a core bomb found onboard the Aurorient Express to explode as payback for all their troubles. (TAE)

Aurra Sing
this bounty hunter was, at one time, a student of the Force. Born to Aunuanna on Nar Shaddaa, Aurra Sing was taken from the degenerate moon by the famed Dark Woman and trained on Coruscant for a short time. As a Jedi trainee, she learned minimal control of the Force from the Dark Woman, but Aurra was captured on Ord Namurt by a group of Sennex Pirates, who later apprenticed her to Nooga the Hutt. The pirates told Aurra that the Dark Woman told them she was not strong enough to complete the early training of a Padawan and had been dismissed by the Dark Woman. This angered Aurra, and she hated the Jedi fiercely from that point on. Nooga apprenticed her to some Anzati assassins, who implanted a Rhen-Orm biocomputer in her skull to augment her mental capacity. After learning that she could use her minimal contact with the Force to hunt down others, she returned to Nooga, assassinated him, and set out to become a bounty hunter. Note that the story Aurra's Song claims Aurra Sing was purchased from the Sennex Pirates by Walla the Hutt, after the Dark Woman sold her to the pirates. She was noted for her ability to hunt down and kill the Jedi Knights, and she had several lightsabers in her trophy case to mark her prowess. After leaving the Jedi, she had a Rhen-Orm biocomputer implanted in her head, to help her in her hunting. She was the bounty hunter who eventually located and eliminated Reess Kairn on the Forest Moon of Endor. Shortly before the Battle of Naboo, Aurra was retained in an effort to locate and kill the secretive Jedi Master, Sharad Hett. Since she was familiar with the streets of Mos Espa, assignment was easy for her. Despite the efforts of Ki-Adi-Mundi, she was able to assassinate Hett. Aurra Sing was a female humanoid with pasty, white skin, three-jointed fingers, and thin limbs, she was quite striking in her appearance. She also had an antenna plugged into the left side of her top-knotted skull. This antenna seemed to give Aurra Sing some connection to her Anzati masters. During the early stages of the Clone Wars, Aurra sing was hired by Devaronian Senator Vien'sai'malloc to assassinate Elsah'sai'moro and protect the Separatist base on Devaron from attack. Eager to kill more Jedi, Aurra agreed to the job. She nearly killed both Jedi Master Tholme and her own former teacher, the Dark Woman, but she was apprehended by Aayla Secura. Aurra Sing tried to taunt the young Jedi, trying to use an advantage she could gain. However, in combat, Aayla managed to slice off the antenna on Aurra Sing's head, momentarily cutting her off from her anger. Aurra Sing was captured by the Jedi and sentenced immediately to imprisonment on Oovo IV. The lightsaber she had collected were returned to the Jedi Order for dsitribution to students of the dead. Aurra Sing was portrayed by Michonne Bourriogue in Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace. (YJC1, IG1, SWI57, BHAS, OWS, DSSB, ASNG, J3)

Ausar Auset
this aging Nikto was one of many Jedi Knights who participated in the Clone Wars. Auset was placed into a strange position during the Siege of Saleucami, when he was forced to fight against cloned Morgukai Warriors. Despite the fact that many of his comrades wondered how he could fight against the other Nikto, Auset explained that the Morgukai had always been aloof to other Nikto, and that he was a Jedi before he was a Nikto. Unfortunately, Ausar Auset was killed on Saleucami when he was caught in the explosion of a starfighter that crashed into the planet's surface. (RSOS)

Autem, Lissa
this girl was the younger daughter of Sagoro and Sula Autem. Much to her father's dismay, Lissa admired the daredevil antics of her older brother, Reymet. (RHD)

Autem, Reymet
this young man, the son of Blue Guard member Sagoro Autem, was twenty years old at the time of the Battle of Geonosis. He had been educated at the Leadership School on Andara, but as a scholarship student. This meant that he was snubbed by most of his wealthier classmates, and was something of a loner during his education. During the years following the Battle of Naboo, Sagoro sent Reymet to be trained as a Senate Guard, although Reymet chafed at the education. He wanted to spend his time racing through the garbage pits of Coruscant, risking his life for thrilling activities. This frustrated Sagoro, whose father and grandfather had both served the Senate Guard with honor and distinction, especially when there were a number of arrests during the illegal races. Reymet, however, had noble intentions while racing, hoping to earn enough credits to book passage for his girlfriend, Riao Siao, back to her homeworld of Felacat. When his uncle, Venco Autem, agreed to help get Riao back to Felacat, Reymet gladly provided his father's Senate Guard access codes to Venco, unaware that Venco was planning to use them for illicit actions. When the Senate Guard and the Jedi Knights implicated Venco in the murder of Jheramahd Greyshade and the attempted murder of Simon Greyshade, Reymet was forced to reveal his misuse of the authorization codes to his father. Sagoro managed to thwart Venco's plans, but began to realize that his family meant more to him than his loyalty to the Guard. Rather than allow Reymet to be arrested as an accomplice to Greyshade's murder, Sagoro sacrificed his own career to allow Reymet and Riao to escape Coruscant. Shortly before the onset of the Clone Wars, Autem was arrested for stealing the souped-up speeder of Senator Simon Greyshade, the man his father had been assigned to protect. After being arrested, the Senator's speeder was "stolen" by Anakin Skywalker, during his attempt to rescue his Jedi Master, Obi-Wan Kenobi, from the ASN-121 droid which tried to assassinate Senator Padme' Amidala. (HNN5, RHD, JQ5)

Autem, Sagoro
this man was a Senate Guard, serving the Blue Guards under Commander Zalin Bey during the years following the Battle of Naboo. He refused to be promoted, preferring active duty to a desk job. He also felt a deep-seated hatred of his older brother, Venco, a former Senate Guard who had been taking bribes and payoffs to overlook certain evidence against Senators. It was Sagoro himself who discovered this, and he never forgave Venco for his actions. The decision to remain an active Guard came back to haunt him when Senator Jheramahd Greyshade was murdered, eight years after the Battle of Naboo. Sagoro and his partner, Isaru Omin, were assigned to investigate the murder of Greyshade, allowing the Jedi Knights Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker to protect Simon Greyshade. When it was discovered that Venco Autem was behind the assassination of Jheramahd Greyshade, Sagoro was taken off the investigation, and assigned to keep watch over Simon Greyshade. Upon returning home, Sagoro discovered that his son, Reymet, had provided Venco with Sagoro's own authorization codes. Rushing to the Senate Rotunda, Sagoro found that Venco had infiltrated Simon Greyshade's chambers and was planning to kill him. Sagoro was forced to shoot his own brother, killing him to ensure that Greyshade survived. When a full-scale investigation into Venco's actions was launched, Sagoro realized that family meant more to him that he thought. He sacrificed his own career to ensure that Reymet was able to leave Coruscant and avoid being implicated in Venco's plans. His own partner, Isaru, was forced to arrest him as an accomplice to Venco's plans. He was imprisoned on Brentaal, until Shogar Tok and his Separatist forces took control of the prison and began to use it as their base of operations. Sagoro led a team of insurgent prisoners - along with Lyshaa and Ryyk - in a revolt, only to be cut off by Jedi Master Shaak Ti and a squad of clone troopers. With the Republic's forces pinned down, Shaak Ti offered the three their freedom in exchange for helping the Jedi to destroy Tok's hold on Brentaal. They reluctantly agreed, seeing no better path to freedom. Autem agreed to accompany Quinlan Vos on a mission to destroy the weapons emplacements defending the fortress, which might allow the Republic's forces to gain access to the facility. Just before Vos could set the explosives, however, they were apprehended by Tok's forces. Unknown to the Separatists, though, was that Korto Vos and Sagoro Autem had planted a series of explosives. Many of the undetected explosives went off spectacularly, destroying much of the weaponry protecting Tok's fortress and allowing Vos and Autem to escape. After Shaak Ti defeated Shogar Tok in combat, they kept their end of the bargain and allowed Sagoro to go free. Sagoro later decided to join the Republic's military, serving as a Captain in the Navy during the final months of the Clone Wars. Note that this character is referred to as Saguro Autem in Star Wars: Jedi - Shaak Ti. (RHD, HNN5, J2, RSOS)

Autem, Saguro

Autem, Sula
this woman married Sagoro Autem, and was the mother of his children. When Sagoro's older brother, Venco, was implicated in the murder of Senator Jheramahd Greyshade, Sagoro threw his entire being into the investigation. Sula felt that he had abandoned his family for his loyalty to the Senate Guard, and threatened to leave him. After it was revealed that their son, Reymet, had provided Sagoro's authorization codes to Venco, Sula couldn't take it anymore. She took their daughter, Lissa, and left Sagoro. (RHD)

Autem, Venco
this man was behind the plans to influence the Financial Reform Act, some eight years after the Battle of Naboo. A former Senate Guard, Venco was the older brother of Sagoro Autem. He was expelled from the Guards for taking payoffs to overlook certain evidence, after an in-depth investigation by Sagoro himself. Venco was sent to prison, and was eventually released with time-off for good behavior. Venco claimed that he did what he did to help expose the corruption in the Senate, but Sagoro never believed him. It was discovered that Venco arranged for the deaths of many Senators prior to the vote on the FRA, including Jheramahd Greyshade, then ensured that appropriately conditioned replacements were elected to support his position. He tried to cover his actions by explaining to Sagoro that he was dying, which in fact was true. After contracting a terminal disease while in prison, Venco had nothing to lose, and decided to do whatever he could to further his ideals. When Sagoro proved intractable, Venco decided to become close to Sagoro's son, Reymet. When Reymet tried to get his girlfriend, Riao Siao, freed and returned to Felacat, Venco used his contacts to assist in her release. In return, Venco asked for Reymet's security codes, ostensibly to make contact with a Senator. Reymet's codes had been revoked when he was arrested for garbage pit racing, but he provided Sagoro's codes instead. Using his brother's codes, Venco infiltrated the Senate Rotunda and arranged to guard Senator Greyshade's platform. Using a feint arranged by Princess Tsian, Venco found himself alone with Greyshade, and was about to murder him when Sagoro discovered him. After exchanging angry words, Sagoro was forced to shoot and kill Venco to save Greyshade's life. (RHD)

Starships that didn't meet the code were impounded, unless the owner carried an Authority Waiver that noted those systems not up to code. (CSA)

Authority Waiver
any authorization provided by the Corporate Sector Authority that allows certain inspections to be bypassed. They are most often issued to those starships under the Authority's control, so that they can bypass the normal takeoff, landing, and safety inspections that are performed on most other ships. Many smugglers have forged Waivers that allow them access to certain spaceports. (HSE)

AV-1
produced by GTU, this was their basic suit of power armor. It was portable and sturdy, and provided good protection for most light-duty applications. GTU went on to produce three derivative suits of armor for specific applications: the AV-1S for scouts and explorers, the AV-1C for combat soldiers, and the AV-1A for assault troops. (GFT)

AV-1A
this was a military suit of assault armor, which found its way to the black market during the height of the New Order. Manufactured by GTU, the AV-1A was the most sophisticated derivative of the basic AV-1 suit of power armor. It was the bulkiest AV-1 suit, requiring fifteen minutes to fully don, but it also provided twelve hours of operating time before requiring replenishment. Like the AV-1C, the AV-1A came equipped with a repulsorlift engine for maneuverability, and was given enhanced imaging and communications systems. It also provided superior life support and strength augmentation facilities. (SWJ14, GFT, AEG)

AV-1C
developed by GTU from the basic AV-1 suit of power armor, the AV-1C was designed for combat use. It was equipped with a comprehensive weapon integration and targeting system, which allowed the user to link two weapons to the suit's onboard battle computer for easier use. Like the AV-1S, this suit was equipped with a small repulsorlift engine to greater maneuverability, as well as a suite of imaging systems spanning visible and infrared spectra. (GFT)

AV-1S
this derivative of GTU's AV-1 suit of power armor was equipped with sensor systems and survival tools for use by scouts and explorers. The AV-1S was also given a repulsorlift engine, to help the wearer move about in rugged or hostile environments. (GFT)

She used it to protect the planet Thyferra, along with the Lusankya, Corrupter, and Virulence, during her short reign there. It was commanded by Sair Yonka, who took the ship with him when he defected to the New Republic. It was then renamed the Freedom and saw extensive duty at the Battle of Thyferra. (BW)

Avarik
this Imperial Corporal served as a scout trooper with the Imperial garrison on the forest moon of Endor, during the construction of the second Death Star. Something of a loose cannon, Avarik was known as a brawler and streetfighter. He was given the assignment of monitoring yuzzum activity around the shield generator site. (CCG10)

Avaro Sookcool
this Tetsus Rodian associate of Lando Calrissian ran the Flip of the Credit, a seedy casino in Equator City, on Rodia. Avaro spoke Basic well enough, but he had a lisp which impeded his speech. He was also Greedo's uncle, but held no grudge against Lando and Leia Organa when they arrived on Rodia shortly before the Battle of Endor, claiming "business is business." Avaro was also a member of the Black Sun organization, reporting ostensibly to Clezo but with a direct line to Xizor himself. (SE, SESB)

Avatar Orbital Platform
this orbital space station was designed by the Trandoshan bounty hunter Pekt, as a facility where the Empire could detain and subjugate Wookiees for slavery. It was located near Kashyyyk, in order to ensure minimal transport time for "wild" Wookiees. Over time, Avatar became a source of fear and sadness for the Wookiees, who knew that family members stolen from Kashyyyk were sent to Avatar for "taming." (GB)

Avatar-10
this Corellian Engineering hyperdrive was designed to be compatible with virtually any starship system. Although it was about half as fast as a stock hyperdrive, it was extremely reliable. (GG6)

Avatar's Needle
this was the name of Shanto Dhil's modified Guardian-class cruiser. Designed to be a pirate vessel, the Avatar's Needle was armed with four heavy laser cannons, and was refitted for the storage of stolen goods. Dhil never revealed how he obtained the ship, which was obviously an Imperial craft at one time. He used the ship to pose as an Imperial customs ship, then preyed upon unwitting bacta transports. Dhil never actually boarded the ship, but instead he "docked" with one of the spheres on a B-12 transport and clamped onto it with a specialized cradle. He then detached the bacta sphere and fled into hyperspace, often before the transport's Captain realized what was going on. (LOE)

Aved Luun
this female Jawa was the mate of Kalit, and the shaman of her tribe. She suspected that Wittin was plotting to kill Kalit, but had no proof. (CCG7)

A collection of branch-like appendages studded the exterior surface of the A-vek Iiluunu, each of which could hold up 144 coralskippers. The mission profile of this ship was to deposit its complement of coralskippers into a battlezone and then retreat to the fringes, where it awaited the end of the fighting. Coralskippers could return to the A-vek Iiluunu to be rejuvenated at any time. Each of these carriers required a crew opf 320 to operate, and could accommodate up to 480 pilots and 280 metric tons of cargo. Twenty plasma projectors and several dovin basals gave the A-vek Iiluunu adequate protection. (NJOSB)

Avenel Rest Station

The Star Destroyer participated in the suppression of over 436 planets - many of which were found in the Outer Rim Territories -and it was the lead ship in the attack on the Alliance's Hoth base. It was temporarily disabled by the Alliance's ion cannon, but it later assisted in the hunt for the Millennium Falcon. The Star Destroyer remained at the forefront of the Imperial fleet, serving as the communications vessel in the Battle of Endor and participating in the Battle of Calamari. It was later under the command of Sedriss the Executor during the period when Sedriss was initiating Operation Shadow Hand. Note that X-Wing: Alliance claims this ship was an Imperial-II class Star Destroyer. (ESB, ROTJ, DE1, DE2, SWSB, CCG4, XWA)

Aven'sai'ulrahk
this female Devaronian served as the planetary President of Devaron during the height of the Clone Wars. Aven'sai'ulrahk was unaware that her primary Senator, Vien'sai'malloc, was in league with the Separatists, and had given them a location on Devaron from which to launch a series of ambushes against Republic supply convoys. However, after Aayla Secura and the Jedi Masters Tholme and the Dark Woman wre able to defeat Aurra Sing and bring Vien'sai'malloc to justice, President Aven'sai'ulrahk demanded that the Senator be dealt with as a criminal to the planet Devaron first. Of course, this meant immediate death. (J3)

Avenue of Core Worlds
this thoroughfare, located on the planet Coruscant during the last decades of the Old Republic, was the site of many parades and public events.

Avogwi
tall, predatory birds native to Altor 14, they have three opposable fingers on each wing. They are primitive and lawless, and despise technology. They are often called Altorian Birds. Much of the Avogwi society is dominated by the teachings of Toro-toral, which detail the elaborate ritual duels among Avogwi. Many Avogwi found off their homeworld are employed as bounty hunters. Emperor Palpatine subjugated a number of Avogwi during the New Order, using drugs and the Dark Side of the Force to keep the Avogwi hallucinating about their deepest fears. They were then used as vicious guards, while stormtroopers were used for more important tasks. The Avogwi are carnivorous. It is scientifically possible that the Avogwi and Nuiwit are descended from the same ancestors, although neither race will admit to it. (GG4, COJ)

Awer
this yellow star was the primary body in the Aweris System. It was orbited a single planet, Taboon. (TOJC)

A-Wing
the generalized name of the Dodonna/Blissex RZ-1 Starfighter, this ship was designed from the R-22 Spearhead. It was a flat, one-man, wedged-shaped snub fighter built for the Alliance after the loss of Echo Base and prior to the Battle of Endor. The A-Wing was designed, as its name implies, by Jan Dodonna and Walex Blissex. Because the Alliance was short on funds, most A-Wings were custom-built in private shops. As an example, the ship Tycho Celchu flew at the Battle of Endor had its cockpit inlaid with Fijisi wood. It measured 9.6 meters in length, and was designed for interception and long-range reconnaissance. One unique feature of the A-wing was the short hydro-servo bearing installed in each wingtip, allowing the pilot to tilt the laser cannons up to 60 degrees up or down. Its top sublight speed was 120 MGLT, and it could maneuver at 1,300 kilometers per hour in an atmosphere. It had limited navcomp capabilities, being able to calculate only 2 jumps before requiring recalibration. It boasted the following shipboard systems:

  • MPS Bpr-99 Power Core and Fusion Reactor
  • Twin Novaldex J-77 Event Horizon Engines
  • Torplex Rq9.Z Advanced Avionics Control

One obscure aspect of the A-Wing's design came to light after the Battle of Endor, when Arvel Crynyd used his ship to singlehandedly destroy the Executor. The A-Wing's unique shape, coupled with its speed and its highly-explosive fuel system, made the starfighter a manned projectile weapon of incredible destructive capability. (ROTJ, SCRE, SWSB, RASB, XW, TIE, BW, NEGC, NEGV)

A-Wing Slash
this New Republic naval battle technique required split-second timing among a group of starfighters. The maneuver usually employed a group of X-Wings which flew directly toward the defensive line guarding a capital ship. Flying just behind the X-Wings would be a group of A-Wings, hiding in the X-Wings' drive glows. The X-Wings disengaged their attack at the last second, drawing the fire of the defense with them. The A-Wings could then strafe the undefended ship at will. It was very similar to a saggery-blossom maneuver. (TLC, SOP)

As a people, the Ayrou were known to be strong-willed individualists, committed to maintaining a peaceful existence of barter and negotiation. Most Ayrou regarded any form of combat as a juvenile approach to resolving a situation, preferring to use their brains to determine a suitable outcome. Because of this, the Ayrou were known to debate on a topic for generations before abruptly changing societal customs to meet their needs. This also instilled in the Anyrou a hoarding mentality, with each individual holding onto anything they could find, on the off-chance it might prove useful one day. The average Ayrou stood two meters in height, and was distinguished by their long limbs and milk-white skin. Their startling eye colors were matched only by the bright plumage the Ayrou had instead of hair, and many Ayrou were continually preening themselves to ensure their best appearance. The fingers on their hands were tripled-jointed, allowing the Ayrou to grasp and bend their hands into unusual positions. (SOP, UANT)

Shortly afterward, his dying body was found by a group of smugglers who had inadvertently come to possess the Tirginni Cologne Djelkh had imported. Although he distrusted them with every fiber of his existence, A-Zulmun eventually began to talk to the smugglers. When they agreed to help move the bounty hunter's ship - the Star Stalker, which was blocked the entrance to the cave used by A-Zulmun's tribe - he showed them the way to the ship. When Ranon Djlekh and his thugs showed up to retrieve the mole serpent, A-Zulmun managed to injure the crimelord with another rifle, giving the smugglers a chance to defeat the crimelord. Once the remains of the Star Stalker were moved, A-Zulmun thanked the smugglers and began to restore his tribe's home. (SOT)

Azure
this wayward planet was not part of any star system, and wandered a small patch of space in the Mid Rim. It even lacked any moons, making it completely alone. Shortly after the Battle of Geonosis, the Old Republic established a secret base on Azure, to monitor Separatist communications and movements during the war. After Talesan Fry agreed to turn over his codebreaking device to the Republic, it was brought to Azure for investigation. However, Helina Dow had managed to install a tracer in the codebreaker, alerting the Separatists to its location on Azure.

When Imperial Moff Eisen Kerioth decided to steal the designs for his own work, he executed Strephan and his wife, Augusta, in front of Daye and Tinian. Daye and Tinian's bodyguard, the Wookiee Wrrl, managed to get Tinian to safety. After making sure she escaped from Druckenwell with the plans to the energy field's technology, Daye destroyed the I'att complex. Unfortunately, he was caught in the resulting desctruction and was nearly killed before he could rendezous with Tinian. He was rescued by the local underground, and eventually recovered. However, he had many body parts replaced with cybernetic implants. Rather than endanger Tinian further, Daye remained with the underground and eventually joined the Alliance. He worked for the cell led by Una Poot, and was responsible for aiding the Sunesi in their battles against the Empire. When Daye met Agapos the Ninth, the Sunesi used his ability with the Force to see what was troubling Daye, and explained that he needed to find Tinian and let her know he was alive. Several years after the Battle of Endor, Daye and Tinian were reunited. They rediscovered their love for one another, and eventually were married. Daye himself traveled to Yavin 4 to discuss further training with Luke Skywalker, and became a field agent for the Jedi.
