w-165 Planetary Turbolaser
designed by Kuat Drive Yards, this ground-based turbolaser emplacement was used for planetary defense. This immense weapon had roughly four times the power of the v-150 Planetary Defender ion cannon, and was capable of destroying an Imperial-class Star Destroyer in orbit. The w-165 was a self-contained weapon, with power generation equipment in its base. In order to protect against overloads, the w-165 used forty-eight dispersal tubes to absorb abd radiate excess heat. The firing vector of the w-165 was limited, so a number of these tubrolasers had be used to fully cover the arc of sky they were protecting. In order to maintain and operate the w-165, a dedicated crew of fifty technicians, operators, and gunners was required. Although the w-165 provided all the protection a small government might need, it came at a hefty price: over ten million credits.

Wald was known as a petty thief and vandal, and grafitti proclaiming Watto to be a "dirty old bird" was attributed to him.

However, when Anakin won the Boonta Eve Classic, Wald lost a great deal of credits on the race. He accused Anakin of cheating, and the two boys fought with their fists until Qui-Gin Jinn broke them up. Qui-Gon used the event to prove to Anakin that, no matter how hard you physically fight someone, you will never change their opinions. Note that certain sources indicate that this was actually a young Greedo the Elder, and not Wald, that Anakin was fighting. In the years following Anakin's departure, Wald remained close friends with Kitster Banai and Anakin's mother, Shmi. He took a job working in Watto's salvage yard, but never matched Anakin's skills in repairing old hardware. Nevertheless, when Watto decided to retire, he turned over the salvage shop's rights to Wald. He renamed the shop Wald's Parts, and continued to do a meager business during the early years of the New Republic. When Kitster stole the Killik Twilight moss-painting, Wald helped him escape from Jergo, then later provided information to Leia Organa Solo on where Kitster had fled with the moss-painting.

Wampa Ice Creature
the legendary white-furred snow monster of Hoth, the wampa was a four-meter-tall beast with huge paws, long claws, and curled horns atop its head. It had beady, yellow eyes, and was at the top of Hoth's food chain, hunting the native tauntauns for food. The white fur of the wampa allowed it to move across the snow-covered plains in near-perfect camouflage. Wampas were known to prefer live prey, and often locked their still-living catch in ice until they were hungry. Using its hot breath and saliva, the wampa imbedded its prey in the ceiling of its lair, thereby rendering it helpless to try and escape. The wampa was a solitary creature, inhabiting the natural ice caves that were found under the planet's icy crust. Each wampa roamed a wide and exclusive range, and defended it fiercely. The wampa was known to mournfully cry out at night, filling the snow plains with a plaintive song that was used either to attract a mate or arrange plans with their brethen. Because of their size, strength, and fierce reputation, the wampa was sought out by big-game hunters and thrill-seekers. Many times, though, it was the wampa that survived the hunt. Those hunters that managed to kill a wampa were rewarded with beautiful fur pelts and rare horns and claws. Due to the limited nature of Hoth's ecosystem, killing wampas had been outlawed during the last years of the Old Republic.

this was the handle of one of the many slicers in the Cularin System who discovered the decrypted message posted on the HoloNet by Tiny F, during the early months of the Clone Wars. In his initial postings, wampa1 used simplistic terms and abbreviated spellings to communicate, a trait that earned him the reputation of a twelve-year-old working from his mother's computer. wampa1 was quite cynical about the truth of Tiny F's messages, despite the obvious support and belief of other readers. Because of the often simplistic extrapolations wampa1 put forth, he was often reviled in message threads, as happened when he tried to dig too deeply into the transmission sliced by mstrslcr regarding the Almas Academy. Later, after participating in the discussion of Nightwing's account of the killing of Commander Kulkis, wampa1 appeared to have been kidnapped by an unknown party. The clue was the use of proper grammar and spelling in his final post, which came shortly after a message from Lieutenant G. Bresch of the Cularin Military. Even wampa1's greatest detractor, known simply as alyssaroxu, chose to abandon the newsnets to avoid being arrested.
