a clan of Dark Side witches on Dathomir, the Nightsisters were created by Gethzerion following her own exile. It is rumored that Palpatine feared their power, so he had the planet interdicted and used atmospheric bombardment to destroy any ships on the planet.

this was the callsign of a member of the Thaereian Navy, during the height of the Clone Wars. He originally joined the military to protect his homeworld, although he was one of the few soldiers who truly understood that protection often meant taking the fight to a superior enemy. His beliefs were challenged when he was confronted by Commander Kulkis, who tested Nightwing's resolve by drawing a knife on the soldier. Nightwing was prepared for the attack, and managed to twist the knife into a position where it stabbed into Kulkis' chest when they fell to the ground. Nightwing believed that he had passed whatever test Kulkis had meant for him, although Kulkis' final words caused him to question the need to continue defending Thaere. Many of the Cularin newsnets were abuzz with activity after an account of Nightwing's actions were posted, and many believed that Nightwing was actually Osten Dal'Nay.

this was one of the small group of Shamed Ones who lived with Vuurok I'pan beneath the surface of Coruscant, after the planet had been transformed into a likeness of Yuuzhan'tar. Like the rest of their cadre, Niiriit 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. A former warrior, Niiriit developed a simple relationship with Kunra during their residence below Coruscant's surface. Niiriit was quite suspcious when I'pan returned one day with Nom Anor at his side, having heard of the former Executor's work as a minion of the Supreme Overlord Shimrra, but she was attracted to Nom Anor's charismatic presence.

this was the native langauge shared by all five races of Nikto.
a humanoid alien race which evolved into five distinct branches on the planet Kintan. They were an ancient species, being one of the three races signed into servitude to the Hutts during the battle against Xim the Despot. The Nikto were characterized by their leathery skin, reptilian eyes, and fierce temperments. The skin of a Nikto was made up up thousands of overlapping scales, which could be shifted to cover wounds to protect them from infection. All five races are genetically capable of interbreeding; 93% of the offspring from such unions resemble only one of the parents. There were a number of environmental and geological changes that greatly affected life on Kintan, causing the once-singular Nikto race to evolve its five unique races. Chief among these changes was the radiation expelled by the nearby star M'dweshuu. The Red Nikto, called Kajain'sa'Nikto, evolved in the deserts. They have ridged foreheads, eight small horns around the eyes, and two at the chin. They breath through a permeable membrane over their mouths and through four breather tubes on their necks. The Green Nikto, known as Kadas'sa'Nikto, evolved in the forests. They are visibly scaled, with obvious noses and small horns ringing their eyes. The Mountain Nikto are called Esral'sa'Nikto, and have smooth skin. Their ears are large and fin-shaped, designed to be extended or pulled flat to regulate body heat and enhance hearing. They also have a nasal membrane similar to the Red Nikto. The Pale Nikto, called Gluss'sa'Nikto, are found in the islands of the planet. They resemble the Green Nikto, with fin-like ears. The last race, called M'shento'su'Nikto or Southern Nikto, lack any horns but have a number of breather tubes at various points on their skulls. Their inner strength and fierce nature has been honed over millennia of survival against the predators of Kintan. This led to four intense civil wars which nearly destroyed Kintan some 30 years before the Nikto helped the Hutts defeat Xim. The Hutts then distributed the Nikto to various worlds as bodyguards and strongmen. The Nikto developed atomic-level technology on their own, and absorbed galactic technology from the Hutts. They have remained under Hutt control for over 25,000 years, for the most part remaining neutral throughout the various battles between the Empire and the Alliance. Because of this, many Nikto individuals who were sensitive to the Force remained undiscovered by the Jedi Knights, although a few Nikto escaped slavery to become Jedi.

Unluckily for Nil, Zan Arbor grew tired of his inability to contain the Jedi, and injected the Quint with a lethal dose of drugs.
this cunning Yevethan was in charge of the Yevethan workers at the Imperial shipyard known as Black-15. While there, he plotted to overthrow the Imperials and take control of the shipyards for the Yevethans, and bided his time working under Jian Paret. When the official order to evacuate the shipyards and destroy its ships was issued, Spaar heard it almost as quickly as Paret did, and put his plans into motion. The Yevethan workers gained access to the spaceworthy Imperial craft, and slaughtered their crews. Nil Spaar personally executed Jian Paret and took control of the Intimidator. With his plan under way, Nil Spaar and the Yevetha retreated into the Koornacht Cluster to repair their ships and plan the next phase of attack. The next phase began twelve years later, and would be known among the Yevetha as the Great Purge. Nil Spaar went to Coruscant to discuss a mutual relationship between the Yevethan Duskhan League and the New Republic with Leia Organa-Solo. Spaar carefully avoided an alliance while probing for weaknesses in Leia's government. Spaar wooed certain New Republic Senators who opposed Leia's ideals, and through them sowed seeds of unrest in the Senate. When Leia discovered the missing Black Sword Command, Nil Spaar again called the Yevetha to act, and used a carefully orchestarted series of events to his own ends. He twisted the events to appear as if Leia were the agressor and himself an innocent victim, while launching a wave of extermination throughout the Koornacht. The Yevetha wiped out any non-Yevethan settlements, keeping intact any strategic mines or businesses. Nil Spaar then retreated to N'Zoth to enjoy the fruits of his labors. He used the New Republic's HoloNet communications network to bombard the citizens and Senators with slanderous accusations against Leia, and he fostered relationships with several disgruntled Senators. He also place Belezaboth Ourn on Coruscant, and the set-up provided him with a great deal of advanced information on the Republic's moves with regard to the Yevetha. When the Republic decided to send Han Solo to command the Fifth Battle Group, Spaar ordered that Solo be captured, as a way to bring Leia under his control. At the same time, he began breeding with several Yevethan females, hoping to ensure his immortality through prodigious offspring. Taking some of the advice of Tal Fraan, Spaar kept a group of prisoners - taken from each of the worlds the Yevetha purged - on the Pride of Yevetha. This assured that the Republic would not take direct action against him, for fear of harming innocent captives. Among the captives was Han Solo, but Chewbacca and Lumpawarump were able to penetrate the Star Destroyer and rescue Solo. During the rescue, the Wookiees also destroyed many of Spaar's mara-nas casks. This series of events angered Spaar into taking foolish actions, which led to his eventual defeat at the Battle of N'zoth. Unbeknownst to Spaar, the Imperial officers he had kept prisoner ever since the Yevetha took control of the Black Sword shipyards were also rising up against him. Led by Sil Sorannan, the Imperials took control of several Yevethan warships during the Battle, including the Pride of Yevetha. Sorannan, wanting to kill Spaar outright but also wanting Spaar to suffer for his actions, forced the Yevethan leader into an escape pod as the Super-class Star Destroyer travelled through hyperspace toward Byss. The pod was ejected into hyperspace, and Nil Spaar was never heard from again.

Named for two groups of three Kashi gods, Niman was a two-handed fighting style that used one blade for offense, while the other could be used for parrying or for additional attacks. After the Legions of Lettow were defeated by the ancient Jedi Knights, the Jedi adopted both the two-handed fighting technique and its name.
