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.

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.

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.
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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
