Twilit Hearth's husband, Sprig preferred to wear non-descript clothing to hide his true nature as a member of the underground movement in Il Avali. He was noticeable by his neat goatee. He and Twilit were the basis of a cantina band that often played at Happy's Landing, which was where he met Tinian I'att and Daye Azur-Jamin. Spring was the band's KeyBed player, and Twilit was the lead singer. When Tinian's grandparents were executed by Moff Kerioth, Sprig and Twilit helped her escape from Druckenwell by disguising her as the band's singer. Twilit remained behind to guard their escape. After leaving Druckenwell, he revealed that his father's aunt was Una Poot, linking him even closer to the Alliance's command.

this was one of the many Rodian clans. The Chekkoo controlled most of the Betu continent, but allowed several smaller clans to own land within their borders, provided that they paid their allegiance to the Chekkoo. The Chekkoo opposed the rule of Navik the Red and the Chattza clan, but kept to their own lands and avoided direct confrontations.
this Rodian clan holding was located in the heart of the eastern coast of Rodia's Betu continent. Essentially a city unto itself, the Enclave was protected by strong wall, and contained three other walled sections protecting the clan tower. The tower sat atop a rocky outcropping.
this was the primary police force which protected the clan holdings of the Chekkoo clan of Rodians.

this Hapan woman, the older sister of Alyssia, was a niece to the former Queen Mother, Ta'a Chume, and therefore a legitimate heir. However, her own daugther was caught by Tenel Ka during an attempt to assassinate Prince Isolder of Hapes, shortly after the Second Battle of Coruscant. Like her sister, Chelik was also a member of the royal family, and not above trying to further her own interests. But, she lacked the subtly of Alyssia's schemes, which may have involved getting Chelik's daughter to try and kill Isolder.

Chokla's lover, Chell was also one of the Five. Chell was killed when Chewbacca escaped from the Menagerie and freed the Wuzzek. The Wuzzek had built up a strong hatred of the Five, and killed all of them one by one.
this man was one of the first Hapans to agree to assist the Yuuzhan Vong priest Harrar in capturing Jaina Solo, following the loss of the voxyn queen at Myrkr. Benwick and his pilot, Vonce, met with Harrar and Khalee Lah to discuss the terms of an agreement. Benwick had spent fifteen years of his life in the Hapan Navy, only to have his entire squadron destroyed at the Battle of Fondor. He hated the fact that Tenel Ka was involved in the destruction of his troops, and so he deserted his posting and took up the life of a pirate. After admitting his desertion to the Yuuzhan Vong, he was nearly killed by Khalee Lah, but Harrar made the warrior hold back, hoping to use Benwick's knowledge of Hapes to capture Jaina Solo. Shortly after Vonce was murdered, Harrar then placed a biological communicator into Benwick's ear, then sent the man back to his pirates to hunt down the Solo family.

this man was a former Old Republic operative to worked for the Senate as a spy and investigator. He was listed as having died some thirty years before the Battle of Naboo. At that time, Tarrance Chenati became one of the Senate's "no-names," and his identity was retired. It was reactivated twenty years later when the Senate needed someone to investigate the starfighter training facility established by the Jedi Knights on Centax 2. The identity was discovered by Tahl and Qui-Gon Jinn when they discovered he was trying to sabotage Clee Rhara's starfighters in such a way as to frame her for the destruction. Clee Rhara was cleared of any crime when Chenati fled Centax 2, during Tahl's investigation. Chenati resurfaced twelve years later, serving aboard the starship BioCruiser under the No-Name alias Kern.
this was the smallest, and outermost, of Tatooine's three moons. Itr had a highly elliptical orbit, with its apogee occurring more than four million miles from the the planet. This meant that Chenini was very rarely in view, and was often overlooked by early scouts and explorers. The orbit was regular enough, though, that the indigenous Jawas and Sandpeople monitored its progress to ensure the corrent timing of many rituals and gatherings.
this silver-tipped brown Wookiee was one of the few who lived off the planet Kashyyyk during the New Order. He was forced to flee his homeworld after killing an Imperial officer who was beating a Wookiee child. Known as fierce and unrelentling, he was a bounty hunter and tracker by trade who only took dead-or-alive assignments and usually brought back proof of the deceased. Under this guise, many of the bounties which had 'escaped' him were secretted away on Alliance safeworlds. Chen - as he was called by his friends - was referred to as "the Raging Wookiee" to other Hunters. Chenlambec worn a bandoleer of black reptile skin, possibly as a warning to Trandoshans who would try to kill him for sport. He later befriended Tinian I'att and became her ng'rhr, taking her in as his apprentice. The two worked well together, saving each other's life many times while strengthening their friendship. They worked together for the chance to hunt down the Trandoshan Bossk, and eventually formed a loose relationship with the reptile during the hunt for Han Solo following the Battle of Hoth.

an impact explosive.
this woman was known to the members of Rogue Squadron as "Chief" during the last years of the Galactic Civil War. She served as the squadron's chief technician, and was stationed on the moon of Kile shortly after the Battle of Hoth. There, she ensured that the squadron was ready for the attempt to recover Han Solo's body from Boba Fett. It was during this time that she was approached by an operative who offered her 10,000 credits to ensure Luke Skywalker was killed. Cheran took the bribe, but her efforts to sabotage his X-Wing failed to result in his death.
this is the first combination symbol in the Aurebesh script, and represents the Basic combination "ch".
this was the name given to the unusual blue fire which engulfed a location which had been attacked by anti-matter or nuclear weapons. The blue flames were actually hard radiation being ejected from the remains of the blast.
this dim-witted yet vicious herd predator was native to the deserts of the planet Elom. Measuring up to 1.5 meters tall at the shoulder, cherfers are born aggressive and continue to become meaner as they mature. Cherfers are equine in stature, with muscular bodies covered by rough, brought-colored fur. Their heads are dominate by elongated snouts which are covered by a bony plate that continues to grow as the cherfer ages. They hunt in groups known as vlaktors by the Elomin, taking down their prey in a swift stampede.
this Wookiee was one of many free beings who were wanted by the Empire for rebellious activity. A 25,000-credit bounty was placed on Cherioer's head, established because of his assistance to the Alliance throughout Zaric Sector during the Galactic Civil War. It was believed that Cherioer agreed to transport Malindin Gevarak away from Imperial entanglements, further deepening the bounty on his head.
this was the name of a quasi-religious sect which settled the planet Rhamalai some 400 years before the Battle of Yavin. They believed in living simply, in harmony with the planet. Subsequent generations established laws to protect those beliefs. The original 500 colonists were considered dissidents of the Old Republic, and chose to settle only a small part of Rhamalai as an experiment in communal living. After the advent of the New Order, they began working toward establishing a planetary government, but their efforts were cut short when the Empire first established an outpost on the planet. Shortly afterward, Rhamalai was subjugated, and one male from each family was conscripted into Imperial service.
this was one of the most common names given to female Corellians.
this soft, supple fabric was used to create robes and dresses on the planet Naboo. The color of the chersilk often held special meaning. For instance, purple chersilk was only used to create mourning robes.
this sterile female Selonian was sent to the Corellian Security Force for cross-training, as a sort of cultural exchange. She was in CorSec about the time Corran Horn was serving on the force. Chertyl was tall - nearly 2 meters or more - and had short, dark black fur that flashed silvery-blue in the right light. When it came time for the annual Awards Ball, the Corellian humans had targetted her as the winner of their annual pool. This pool chose the least-likely female to get a date for the ball, and "awarded" her to the winner of the pool. Corran liked Chertyl, and secretly bought up all the pool tickets, claiming that she would steal the hearts of the other officers. Thus, he won the pool, and got to take Chertyl to the Ball. He showed her the time of her life. Although she was infertile, she wasn't incapable, as Corran found out following the Ball. They shared a wonderful evening in each others' arms, but the morning brought a startling revelation. Chertyl's flesh actually began to burn from contact with Corran's acidic sweat, and Corran discovered he was allergic to her fur. They were forced to cut off their physical relationship, but remained friends from then on.
this female Ewok fell in love with, and later married, Leektar. Their marriage was a happy and productive one, as Chesea blessed Leektar with three strong Woklings. However, Chesea and her children were later killed in the fire that destroyed Red Bush Grove.
a cargo hauler whose ship was hit by an asteroid and disabled in the depths of space. He had no companionship for almost ten years before discovering the droid MILL-247-EE onboard. She kept his mind off the woman he loved, and together they drifted through space until they found a habitable planet. There, Chesko grew old and withered. MILL-247-EE kept him company, and when his heart gave out, she donated her own mechanical heart to him.
this Huttese phrase roughly translated into Basic as "be careful."
this companion of Dirk Harkness was killed by Imperial stormtroopers on Kelada. The stormtroopers believed she was part of a rebel cell, and opened fire on Chessa and her companions. Chessa and Dirk had formed a loving relationship over the years, and she often sang songs for him. Her death hardened Dirk's resolve to punish the Empire, and he struck out at Imperial forces any way he could.
this dim-witted Rodian was a constant company to Gorm Maldorf, playing the perfect patsy to Gorm's machinations on the planet Tatooine during the height of the New Order. He followed from settlement to settlement, as the gruff young man swindled credits from the teenagers before being run out of town. Among Gorm's many tricks was challenging another youth to a swoop race inside a metal cage. Before the race, Gorm would string a thin wire across the cage, which would inevitably trip up another racer. In this way, Gorm always won his races, at least until his ruse was discovered. According to local legend, Gorm once challenged Luke Skywalker to a race, but was undone by his own plans. During the set-up of the cage, Gorm was inadvertently strangled by Chester. Chester had been helping him string the wire, and yanked hard before Gorm could let go. The wire wrapped around Gorm's next, and dragged him into the cage supports. Although probably dead when he hit the bars, Gorm's skull was crushed by the blow, and he died instantly. Chester tried to blame Gorm's death on Luke, but Luke managed to expose the truth. Although Chester denied everything, the length of wire was found in his speeder, and Chester fled into the desert.
this was a race of ruthless beings with a passion for biological warfare.
this was the dense, grammatically difficult language of the Chiss. Written forms of Cheunh do not have defined alphabet, using individual ideograms to represent concepts and combinations of images to represent complex ideas.
this was a dialect of the Chevin language, developed for use by the near-human Chevs who inhabited the planet Vinsoth. It gained a following when individual Chevs started thinking about rebelling against their Chevin masters, as a way to communicate without being discovered.
this humanoid race was native to the planet Vinsoth, but they were subjugated by the Chevin. They resembled pale-skinned, violet-eyes humans, but there were many physical differences to pure human stock. Chief among them was the fact a Chev had two hearts. Also known as Chevin Humanoids, Chevs were known to live as long as 300 years. In order to distinguish between individual Chevs, their Chevin masters often dyed the short, coarse hair of their Chev slaves to indicate ownership. The average Chev had nimble fingers and a muscular body, which made them ta perfect slave stock. Chevs also had the ability to learn complex technologies, and many were well-educated by the Chevin to keep them happy and useable. The Chev race had been enslaved for so long that most forget the reasons for their enslavement and simply accept it. However, with the pro-human stance of the Empire, recent generations began looking for ways to defeat their Chevin masters. Some Chevs even left Vinsoth to pursue careers in business elsewhere. These Chevs were respected in their circles, and seemed confident to their brethren. During the Yuuzhan Vong invasion of the galaxy, the Chev population began to accept the help of offworlders in their efforts to defeat their Chevin masters, hoping to gain their independence.
this woman was a member of the small research team assembled by the Separatists to assist Ovolot Qail Uthan in her development of a nanovirus that would kill the clones of the Grand Army of the Republic. Cheva and the rest of her team were held hostage by Ghez Hokan, after Omega Squad was able to infiltrate the research facility and capture Uthan. When Hokan tried to flee his stronghold, Omega Squad fired on their positions. Cheva and the other scientists froze, rather than continuing to run behind Hokan, and were shot and killed in the firefight.
this clan of Wookiees supported Attichituck and Chewbacca.
a race of elephant-like humanoids from the planet Vinsoth, the Chevin were an aggressive people. They have long heads which sit at the end of a thick neck that curves downward, allowing them to forage for food without having to bend over. Some have large facial tusks which impede their vocal abilities. Chevin have thick, grey skin that allows them to tolerate a wide range of temperatures. They are adroit hunters, working in teams to corner their prey. They have dominated the planet Vinsoth, and have enslaved the Chevs. Many Chevin villages wander across the surface of the planet, migrating with the seasons to maintain food supplies and avoiding harsh weather. The Chevin leadership supported the New Order during the reign of Emperor Palpatine.

this was the native language spoken by the inhabitants of the planet Vinsoth.
this is the Snivvian ruling council. Members are elected to the Chevram every twelve Snivvian years, and a new executive ruler is chosen from its ranks each year.
this Shyriiwook word was used as the prefix to many Wookiee names. It translated into Basic as "honored", "noble", or "trusted", and could be combined with one or more suffixes to form a complete Wookiee name.
born on Kashyyyk around nearly two centuries before the Galactic Civil War, Chewbacca - Chewie, for short - grew up without a great deal of human intervention. He excelled the various hand-to-hand combat skills a Wookiee was taught, and also gained a great deal of mechanical aptitude. Although no record exists of he early years, it was generally belived that Chewbacca left Kashyyyk between the ages of fifty and eighty to explore the galaxy. For many years, he answered to no one but himself, until the Clone Wars broke out. Chewbacca then returned to Kashyyyk to help defend his homeworld from Separatist forces. The support the Wookiees received from Jedi Master Yoda was a welcome sight, until Chancellor Palpatine revealed himself to be Darth Sidious and ordered the clone commanders to kill their generals. Yoda managed to destroy Commander Gree, and Chewbacca set out to make sure the tiny Jedi Master made it off Kashyyyk. With the help of his commanding officer and old friend, Tarfful, Chewie was able to get Yoda to an escape pod and away from Kashyyyk. With the institution of the New Order, the Empire declared Wookiees a slave commodity. Chewie was captured as a rogue Wookiee and imprisoned, and he spent the next decades doing hard labor in the Empire's slave camps. Chewie was doomed to a short life when he was rescued by an Imperial Navy trainee named Han Solo. Chewie claimed a lifedebt to Han, and the two fled Imperial observation and began living underground as smugglers. Chewie's physical strength and mechanical abilities made him a formidable partner, and he and Han had many adventures during the years prior to taking on Obi-Wan Kenobi and Luke Skywalker for passage to Alderaan. Chewie's actions in rescuing Princess Leia and helping Han Solo give Luke some breathing room during the Battle of Yavin earned him a commendation from the Alliance. His life-debt to Han Solo kept Chewie active. Following Han's need to repay Jabba the Hutt, he continued to help the Alliance, becoming a part of the ground assault team that disabled the shield generator on Endor's Sanctuary moon, allowing the Alliance to destroy the second Death Star. Following the formation of the New Republic and Han's resignation from the Republic, Chewie and Han continued to assist the Republic as pilots, and Chewie was forced to expand his hnor family to include Princess Leia following her marriage to Han Solo. Chewie's family continued to grow after the births of Jaina, Jacen, and Anakin Solo. Chewie became a guardian of Jacen and Jaina after their return from Anoth, but the siblings eluded him and got lost in the underground of Imperial City. Chewie and C-3PO managed to find them. On a vacation flight to Kessel with Han, Chewie and Han were shot down over the planet and forced to work in the spice mines. Their escape led them to the Maw Installation, and a group of Wookiee slaves still under Imperial domination. After convincing the Republic's leaders that they needed to establish an occupation of the Installation, Chewie also lobbied for the Republic to rescue the enslaved Wookiees. He was granted permission to accompany the occupation team and free the Wookiees. He was successful in rescuing the Wookiees, and helped get them out of the Installation before Daala destroyed it. Even though Han retired from active duty to spend time with his family, Chewbacca never left his side. His life-debt to Han had grown to encompass the entire Solo family. During the initial stages of Yuuzhan Vong invasion, Han, Anakin, and Chewbacca were on Sernpidal, helping Lando Calrissian with a shipment. They were on the planet when the Yuuzhan Vong used a dovin basal to draw the moon Dobido into an impact trajectory with Sernpidal, and were assisting with the evacuation effort when Anakin and Chewie were trapped on stony outcropping. Recognizing that Dobido was going to crash any second, Chewbacca flung Anakin onto the landing ramp of the Millennium Falcon, ensuring Anakin's survival. When Han realized Chewie didn't get onboard, he ordered Anakin to fly back while he searched for Chewie. Anakin, torn between his love for Chewie and the cargo hold full of refugees, was forced to retreat before the Falcon was destroyed. Chewbacca died on Sernpidal while giving the highest service to his life-debt. Han grieved for a long time before he could come to grips with the realization that Anakin hadn't killed Chewie, but that the Wookiee had saved them all.

this Yuuzhan Vong Master Shaper was in charge of the regrowth of several dhuryams, which would compete to serve as the World Brain used to seed Coruscant. The Yuuzhan Vong hoped to complete reform Coruscant into a new version of their long-lost homeworld, Yuuzhan'tar, and it was Ch'Gang Hool's responsibility to maintain and care for the priceless dhuryams. Ch'Gang Hool was distinguished from other Shapers by the strange group of tentacles which were grafted to the corner of his mouth. These tentacles writhed and twitched to their own rhythm, but sometimes seemed to move in reaction to Hool's mood. He objected to the fact that Nom Anor and Vergere used his seedship, the Coruscant itself, as their training group for Jacen Solo, but was forced to go along with their plans. His fears were nearly realized when Jacen's actions during the tizo'pil Yun'tchilat artificially eliminated all but a single dhuryam. However, the World Brain was installed on Coruscant, and the Vongforming of the planet continued. Within months, Coruscant resembled Yuuzhan'tar. Ch'Gang Hool had another scare when he learned that Solo had ended up on Coruscant, instead of being killed aboard the seedship. Solo, who had befriended the dhuryam World Brain, was allowed private access to the Well in order to sacrifice Ganner Rhysode. Jacen, however, planned to use his mental link to the dhuryam to ask it a favor. While there was no outward damage to Ch'Gang Hool's World Brain, it had agreed to work as a spy for Jacen and the New Republic. Unfortunately for Ch'Gang Hool, the outward manifestation of his relationship costs him his life. Many Yuuzhan Vong on the Great Council saw Coruscant's constant rejection of worldshaping - the fungal infection that caused intense itching, the imprinting of villips on indigenous rodents, blorash jelly that attacked its creators - as a failure to fully tame Coruscant. Because of this failure, Ch'Gang Hool was executed on the orders of Supreme Overlord Shimrra.
native to Cularin, this species of slender, purple and green trees had thick, drooping foliage and were touch-sensitive. Whenever something came into contact with the bark of the ch'hala tree, it would produce swirling patterns of color across its surface, rippling outward from the point of contact. During the last century of the Old Republic era, the ch'hala trees were declared to be sacred to the Tarasin people, which were also native to Cularin. The Tarasin prohibited any harvesting of ch'hala wood, and logging corporations brought in armed guards to protect their workers. Only trees that died naturally were collected and used for wood, and the roots were crushed and then used to brew a fragrant tea. The Jedi Knights were called upon to mediate the situation, and formed the Cularin Compact, which limited the number of trees which could be harvested to a minimal number. Emperor Palpatine later used ch'hala trees to line the Grand Corridor at the Imperial Palace, and implanted at least one with a highly-sensitive listening device that became known as Delta Source.

this female, Rutian Twi'lek was the Senator who represented the planet Wroona in the Galactic Senate, during the height of the Clone Wars. Senator Eekway was noted for her compassion and patience with her constituents, many of whom were pirates or fiercely independent explorers. There was even talk of her having a slight connection to the Force, although Eekway claimed it was her own adoption of Wroonian religion. In order to fit in better among the Wroonians, Senator Eekway wore a voluminous cloak that covered her from head to toe. The cloak was woven with religious motifs, but its primary function was to cover her lekku, giving her the appearance of a Wroonian upon first glance. Senator Eekway was part of a small group that supported Bail Organa's pettion to ensure Chancellor Palpatine relinquished the unprecedented control he had been given during the Clone Wars. She was also one of the first to openly speak of the role of the Jedi Order in the war, voicing the popular opinion that the Jedi were purposely prolonging the war, in order to achieve a level of control over the galaxy. Palpatine claimed that the utilization of the Jedi as military commanders was a necessary decision, and that the popular fall-out - which was especially strong in the more remote parts of the galaxy - was a regrettable by-product of the war. Because of this exchange, many other Senators came to believe that Chi Eekway was too impetuous or too bold. Her views were often supported by veiled threats, which many came to associate with the actions of Baron Papanoida. Senator Eekway was often seen in the company of the enigmatic Baron, leading to an assortment of rumors about their relationship.

this Rodian smuggler, one of the few relatives of Greedo who survived the attacks of Navik the Red, was noted as the being who set off the traps which were located in the catacombs of Shawkan. For many years during the height of the New Order, Chihdo traveled the galaxy with Rik Duel. They joined the Alliance together, and were part of the team which remained behind on Stenos in an effort to locate the lost statue of the god Vol. However, as soon as the statue was found, Rik and his band tried to make off with the statue and sell it to Imperial Governor Matrin. This plan failed miserably, as the Stenaxes learned of the statue's reappearance and set out to recover it. In their anger, the Stenaxes killed the Imperials and threatened to dispose of the smugglers. They managed to escape, however, and remained hidden on Stenos for several more years. Unfortunately for Chihdo, he ran afoul of IG-88 and Bossk, who were trying to avoid being caught by Luke Skywalker and Lando Calrissian. Chihdo was frozen in a block of carbonite, and used as a decoy to lure them into a trap. After the bounty hunters were defeated, Chihdo was thawed out, and rejoined Rik and Dani on a mission to Iskalon to plunder what salvage they could from the ruins of Pavillion. This plan later fell through when Mone demanded that they leave the planet. In the wake of the Battle of Endor, Rik, Dani, and Chihdo accompanied Luke back to Endor. There, Chihdo stood up for Rik when an Alliance soldier accused him of cheating at cards, and Chihdo was shot in the chest. Only Luke's intervention saved Chihdo.

these huge, six-limbed creatures are native to the glacial regions of the moon Misnor, where they grow heights of over two meters. Chiilaks are more than a match for Wookiees in strength, and are excellent swimmers. Their upper four limbs are used as arms, and their hands have a thick middle digit and two smaller, opposable fingers. Their feet are clawed, and all six "paws" are webbed for use in swimming. Their pelts are thick, providing protection from the cold environment in which they exist. Generally white in coloration, chiilaks tend darken in color as they age. They are omnivorous, and will eat just about anything they can catch. Hunting of chiilaks was allowed under Imperial aw, but actually surviving the hunt and returning with a chiilak pelt was never a foregone conclusion.
this Shyriiwook word was used as the suffix to many Wookiee names. It translated into Basic as "call" or "voice". It could be attached to a prefix by itself, or combined with other suffixes to form a complete Wookiee name.
a Sullustan Lieutenant Commander in the Alliance, he was rescued by Keyan Farlander and the Rescue shuttle group.
this Huttese word translated into Basic as "dancing girl."
this race of man-sized, squirrel-like creatures is native to the planet Plagen. They are highly-intelligent, and are known to be extremely thrift. Jokes up and down the Enarc Run said that a Chikarri's wealth was described by the age and patching of their clothing. Chikarri are also known to be kleptomaniacs, and not very brave. It was the Chikarri who sold port rights to Plagen to the Klatooinan Trade Guild, bringing a galaxy's worth of trade to their world.
this was ostensibly the capital of the planet Ord Cestus, although its primary population was made up of offworlders who worked for Cestus Cybernetics. The name ChikatLit literally meant "the center" in the X'Tingian language. The city itself was built inside the bubble-shaped chamber formed millions of years ago by lava, which was then expanded by the work of the X'Ting. Over time, the various cultures represented by the offworlders were displayed in the city's achitecture, giving ChikatLik an urban randomness that made it exceptionally beautiful. A network of transportation tubes and tunnels wound through the walls of the bubble, allowing access to the entire city. Below the city, living in a network of tunnels and caves, were the X'Ting hives. It was one of six major city nodes that were spread across the planet's surface, which were connected with a series of transport tubes and tunnels.

this Yuuzhan Vong piece of bio-technology was a worm-like creature designed to crawl into a warrior's sinus cavity and lodge itself there. It was bred to have large memory capacity despite its small size, and recorded everything its user saw and hear by connecting directly to its neural network. When forced to detach itself and expelled through the nose, the chilab could be recovered and its memories stored in bio-computers for later review and replay.
this converted MOD-17 freighter was part of the small fleet which was hastily assembled to transport refugees off the planet Druckenwell, when the Yuuzhan Vong took control of the planet. The speciallized containers of the freighter were refitted to provide shelter and life support to the refugees who crammed into them. The Chilastra was commanded by Captain Yesha Bergeron during the evacuation, and it was rumored that a Jedi Knight was hiding aboard the Chilastra. This rumor quickly reached the ears of Yuuzhan Vong Commander Malik Carr, who dispatched a commando team to capture the ship and its Jedi. A battle ensued between the freighter and a Yuuzhan Vong boarding party, which tried to capture the untrained but Force-sensitive Ka-Tu-Un. The Yuuzhan Vong managed to get aboard the freighter by traveling the shuttle Yorva-9, which outwardly seemed to be a normal shuttle.
this nickname is used to describe Faarl the Conquerer, who was only nineteen at the height of his power.
