this was one of the many Vratix hive-clans that allied with the Ashern, during the years of Thyferran history known as the Thriving Season.
this Vratix of the Seeqov hive-clan was a member of the Razorclaws, the group which would eventually become known as the Ashern, during the height of the Alazhixazha period. Thranx also served as the primary contact for the corporate spy known only as the Bloodletter. She was ostensibly his counterpart when the Bloodletter worked as a field inspector for both the Xucphra and Zaltin factions. Her cover during this period was actually based on fact. Thranx was a respected field inspector and research scientist, and had once helped to eradicate a Rodian fungus that had threatened the planet five years earlier. Her hatred of the Bacta Cartel stemmed partly from the fact that both the Zaltin and Xucphra factions kept the incident a secret, and each claimed total responsibility for solving the fungus epidemic without Vratix help. When the Ashern began development on an enhanced strain of alazhi known as kolazhi - the basis for kolcta - Thranx and the Bloodletter were ordered to keep an eye on its development. They worked together for a year before the project was discovered. A mercenary who wore armor much link Jango Fett's had been hired by the Bacta Cartel to eliminate the Ashern responsible for its development. The mercenary shot both Thranx and the Bloodletter and then left them for dead. Thranx, however, survived long enough to use the enhance bacta to bring the Bloodletter back from the brink of death. Before she died, she told him the complete story of kolcta.

this Ugnaught was imprisoned at the Oovo IV prison facility for a number of crimes, during the years leading up to the Battle of Naboo. He became one of the Helmet Squad's most reliable snitches, providing inside information on his fellow inmates in exchange for certain amenities. Because of this, the Dug crimelord Sebolto issued a bounty for his capture, in case Lonnel was ever released from prison. Lonnel thought he was safe behind bars and the relative protection of the Helmet Squad, until Jango Fett infiltrated the Oovo IV facility to "rescue" Bendix Fust. During the attempt, Jango managed to claim the bounty on Lonnel.

this Imperial Moff was was a military officer in the Old Republic. He was placed in command of the Chandrila Defense Fleet, replacing Hiram Drayson, after the passage of Emegerncy Amendment 121b during the height of the Clone Wars. Years later, Seerdon was one of the first individuals to recognize the true importance of bacta to the Alliance. Many Imperial officers and leaders felt that the control of arms and foodstuffs would eventually choke out the Alliance, while Seerdon realized that the Alliance would keep on fighting until it could no longer sustain itself. He felt that, in order to eliminate the Alliance's forces, the Empire would have to control bacta. Keeping the healing fluid from the Alliance would mean that it couldn't restore its wounded troops, thereby reducing its numbers and eliminating resistance. He sought to control the world of Thyferra, but was kept from achieving his goals by the combined efforts of Rogue Squadron and the Alliance.
this was a common name among the Snivvian race.

this name was commonly given to Quarren males, and referred to a strong, ocean predator that was native to the planet Calamari.
this large, oceanic predator was native to the planet Mon Calamari. It was revered by the Quarren for its strength.
Seggor Tels was a Quarren from Calamari. He was the embodiment of the friction betweem the Quarren and their planetary neighbors, the Mon Calamari. He felt that his own race was being neglected by the Mon Cal, whom he felt were taking all the glory for the work the Quarren had done to build the planet's floating cities. He resented the Mon Cal for their dreams and their ambitions. He felt that the Mon Cal had relegated the Quarren to living the bowels of the planet's floating cities, even though they were designed that way. He resented the fact that Ackbar and the Calamarian Council wanted to make contact with the Empire. So, when an Imperial agent slipped past the planet's defenses and approached him, he felt that he could strike out at the Mon Cal by providing the Empire with the codes to evade Calamari's defenses. His hope, that the Empire would cut the Mon Cal down to size, was quickly turned to despair as the Empire enslaved by Mon Cal and Quarren without prejudice. When the Mon Cal began resisting the Imperial yoke, Seggor Tels again laughed at them. However, the forced slavery began to work at his conscience, and he began to wonder whether he should join the Mon Cal rebellion or not. When the Calamarians heard about the Alliance, Seggor Tels rallied the Quarren to join the Mon Cal, despite all their hatred, and together they drove off the Empire and freed Calamari. To this day, Seggor Tels thanks the Imperials - not the Mon Cal - for showing them how to fly to the stars and begin life again somewhere else.
this Quarren female served Adriav Kavos aboard the Isilia as a gunner.
this race of builders was created by DarkStryder, after it banished the Charr Ontee from its fortress. Essentially huge worms, the Segmi were developed to exude a resinous substance that they wove into strong forms that supported the DarkStryder's fortress. Over the centuries, after DarkStryder no longer desired further modifications to its lair, the Segmi wandered off and formed their own civilization, and they learned to use the Ta-Ree energy that permeated the planet Kathol. DarkStryder later recaptured a segment of the Segmi population for use in developing new parts of its fortress.

this minor crimelord was, at one time, deeply in debt due to a huge gambling habit he established in the Core Worlds. Sehvorah fled to the Outer Rim and started over, eventually becoming the chief executive officer of the Droxian Traders League. He caught the eye of Dunstain Manliss, but Manliss's son Artur moved to secure Sehvorah's allegiance. Many believe that the Droxian Traders League was responsible for the death of Dunstain Manliss, but others believe Artur agreed to pay off Sehvorah's gambling debts in return for the removal of Dunstain. Sehvorah recognized a good thing when he saw it, and agreed to join the Mandroxan cartel in order to reap the benefits of trafficking spice.

Seige of Ank Ki'Shor
this Galactic Civil War battle featured prominent use of the Y-Wing starfighter.
Seige of Trasemene, The
this was one of the most famous historical battles of the Empire. It was at this battle that Grand Admiral Takel made a name for himself as a brilliant strategist, thanks in part to his addiction to glitterstim.
this planet, located in the Breago System of the Borderlands Region, was an undeveloped jungle world at the outset of the New Republic. It had become something of a haven for criminals during the last years of the Empire, and the political wars which continued to rage after the Battle of Endor kept the Borderlands out of most people's minds. Seikosha was the homeworld of the Seikoshan race, and was constantly swept by violent thunderstorms and torrential rains. The average day on the planet lasted 28 standard hours, and its year lasted 422 local days.
this alien race was native to the planet Seikosha. They remained neutral during the Galactic Civil War, in part because their planet was located on the border betwen Imperial and Republic space. They were a primitive culture, and strove to remain so even when smugglers and criminals from the greater galaxy began coming to their homeworld to hide from justice. The average Seikoshan was a reed-thin humanoid with green skin and a small amount of black hair on their head. They have unblinking red eyes, and had a series of ridges running from the bridge of their noses to the top of their skulls. They preferred to live without technology, although they had a highly-developed society with excellent natural engineering skills.

see Seirr, Tarr
this young Cerean male was a student of the Force during the height of the Clone Wars. As a youth in the Jedi Temple, Tarr Seirr idolized his fellow Cerean, Ki-Adi-Mundi, and was honored when the older Cerean Jedi turned over the watchman duties on Cerea to Tarr Seirr. Tarr Seirr took the role very seriously, and worked diligently to ensure that Cerea didn't fall to the Separatists. As the Clone Wars ground on, Tarr Seirr was forced to reluctantly leave Cerea and join the ranks of the Jedi Knights who were fighting the battles across the galaxy. Tarr Seirr accompanied Ki-Adi-Mundi to the remote planet Hypori, in an effort to destroy the droid foundries that had been discovered there by Daakman Barrek. However, General Grievous was too well-prepared for such an assault, and the task force was decimated before it reached the ground. Tarr Seirr was among the survivors who reached the planet's surface in the wreckage of their ships, but was among the first Jedi to be killed in battle against Grievous.
this immense, fifty-five-meter-tall repulsorlift vehicle was developed by Hoar Chall Engineered for the Confederacy of Independent Systems during the height of the Clone Wars. In order to avoid legal entanglements, Hoar Chall developed the tank under the guise of a mining vehicle that could penetrate a planet's crust and expose ores that were otherwise unreachable. First deployed into the field on Dantooine, the seismic tank used a huge battering ram as its primary weapon. When the tank's droid operators brought it onto the battlefield, they centered the tank on an enemy's location. Then, hovering some thirty meters over the target, the tank ejected a huge, cylindrical ram from its underbody, driving the ram into the ground. The ram itself was formed from a heavy metal core, and was guided by frictionless, magnetic impellors, giving it a huge amount of inertia. The resulting quake was similar to the effects of a bomb, but without the fallout potential. The magnetic impellors also prevented any backlash from the impact from reaching the main vehicle. From the point of impact, the ground rippled outward, tossing objects and beings aside or burying them in dirt and debris.
this planet was located near Rhamalai.
one of the survivors of the Battle of Hoth, Seito was evacuated on the Bright Hope. A combat specialist, Seito was chosen by Toryn Farr to lead one of the groups which fled in an escape pod.
this was the name of a noted Sluissi individual.
this race of amphibious humanoids was native to the planet Marca. Their population was parthenogenic, with all members being female. Every two years, a mature Sekct can lay a single egg. However, only one of every two eggs ever hatches, because the genetic makeup of the Sekct often causes damaged embryoes. In theory, those Sekct which survive are genetic duplicates of their parent.. They have brown skin, ranging from muddy brown to tan, which lightens as they age. They are short in stature, but have a well-developed sense of honor and are excellent hunters. Shortly after the Battle of Yavin, the Sekct were in danger of being wiped out by the toxic waste-products of the Empire's hyperbaride plant located on Marca. The wastes were introducing devastating genetic changes, as well as killing the environment. A group of Alliance agents, forced to land on the planet when their ship hit a mine, helped the Sekct destroy the hyperbaride plant and oust the Empire from the planet. The Sekct were then allowed to restore their planet and their environment. One of the things which distinguished the Sekct were their two-jointed forelimbs, as each joint was capable of motion in two directions, giving the Sekct a very gangly appearance. They society was quite primitive by modern galactic standards.
this seedy cantina was located on the planet Ryloth, during the last decades of the Old Republic.
this was the Ferroan name for the living part of the planet Zonama Sekot. In reality, Sekot was a living entity in and of itself, and controlled life and death on the world. Sekot had been living in the system for billions of years, and claimed to have seen the formation of the triple-star system in which Zonama Sekot existed. Many Old Republic databases claim that the planet was simply called Sekot, a remnant of the Ferroan term. When Leor Hal first came to the planet, he discovered Sekot's presence, and believed that she was caretaker of the Living Force, as defined by the Potentium. The two established a deep, working relationship in which both worked to ensure Zonama Sekot's privacy and safety. Sekot agreed to provide Hal with information on how to form Sekotan starships, as long as Hal used all profits to purchase huge hyperdrive cores. In this way, they prepared the planet for entry into hyperspace, an extreme escape mechanism. It was during this time that Sekot also came to accept the tenets of the Potentium as facts. When Leor Hal died, Sekot maintained a hologram of him to give the Zonamans and illusion of continuity. When the planet was attacked by the Far Outsiders, Sekot was forced to use the Sekotan technology to kill them, something she deeply regretted. When Wilhuff Tarkin and Raith Sienar attacked Zonama Sekot in an effort to turn the planet over to Supreme Chancellor Palpatine, Sekot appeared to Anakin Skywalker. The young Jedi padawan had traveled with Obi-Wan Kenobi to discover Vergere's whereabouts. Sekot could take many shapes, and often assumed the guise of Vergere herself to make Anakin more comfortable. Sekot revealed that she controlled all life on the planet, and used her powers to manipulate the weather as well as the positioning of the forests. In that way, Sekot was able to hide the large-scale development of planetary hyperdrives which were installed by the settlers of the planet. In the end, Zonama Sekot was unable to thwart Tarkin's assault, and Sekot was forced to take the planet into hyperspace in order to escape. It hid the planet in many places, each time finding conflict and destruction, until it settled in the Klasse Ephemora System. There it remained for many years, until it was discovered by Yuuzhan Vong Commander Ekh'm Val and Jedi Master Luke Sywalker almost at the same time. Sekot drove off the Yuuzhan Vong, but allowed the Jedi to land. Using a series of carefully orchestrated tests, Sekot tried to ascertain the true nature of the Jedis' visit. Only after it was satisfied that the Jedi truly meant it no harm did Sekot reveal itself, as the Fosh Vergere to Jacen Solo and as a young Anakin Skywalker to Luke. It explained many things about its life to Luke and Jacen, hinting that the presence of the Ferroans on Zonama might have precipitated its awakening. Having discovered the Jedi's desire for peace, Sekot agreed to accompany them back to the galaxy, in an effort to bring the war against the Yuuzhan Vong to a peaceful conclusion. However, the treacherous actions of Nom Anor nearly destroyed the planet. In order to avoid a deadly explosion, Sekot had to jump into hyperspace, thereby killing the incubator the Yuuzhan Vong had placed in hyperdrive vanes that moved the planet. Unable to reconcile its situation, Sekot retreated into itself, ignoring the ecological deterioration experienced by Zonama as the planet jumped in and out of hyperspace. Finally, after conferring with Master Skywalker, Sekot realized that it had to "fight without fighting" against the Yuuzhan Vong, and jumped to Coruscant to try and stall the final conflict that was about to occur. Sekot allowed its starships to be used for defense only during the battle, until it realized that Supreme Overlord Shimrra was planning to use the Alpha Red virus against it. Rather than fighting back, Sekot simply used the natural gravitic abilities of Zonama to pull the Yuuzhan Vong toward it, defending itself by welcoming home its true inhabitants. The virus itself was a simple enough matter to convert into a harmless material, but convincing the Yuuzhan Vong that Zonama Sekot was actually the "offspring" of Yuuzhan'tar was another matter. After the hostilities at Corsucant were concluded by the deaths of Shimrra and Onimi, Sekot discovered that it had been a living part of Yuuzhan'tar that had been cast out into the intergalactic void when it was realized that the ur-Yuuzhan Vong were going to obliterate themselves through war and conflict. The hope was that Zonama Sekot would evolve its own consciousness, and hopefull serve as a new home for those Yuuzhan Vong who put aside their warring ways and returned to a path of enlightenment. Sekot believed that its initial encounter with the Yuuzhan Vong some fifty years earlier was actually precipitated by Skot itself, in the form of a psychic call to welcome the Yuuzhan Vong home. This initial encounter ended in brief, and the truth of its events weren't borne out until much later. The Galactic Alliance, acting on the advice of Master Skywalker and the Jedi, allowed the Yuuzhan Vong to have Zonama Sekot as their new home. Sekot believed that, with time, the Yuuzhan Vong would also recover their ability to connect to the Force. To give the Yuuzhan Vong every chance it could, Sekot took the planet into the Unknown Regions and away from Coruscant.
(RP, FH3, UF)
this was the generic term used to describe the incredibly fast starships which were produced on the planet Zonama Sekot, during the last decades of the Old Republic. These ships were organic in nature, and were rumored to be capable of making 0.4 past lightspeed. It was later revealed that these ships were "grown" to a specific master from unique seed-partners which grew around standard starship mechanical parts. The resulting starship was emotionally attached to its master, who controlled the ship by initiating physical contact with it. The development process of these ships was quite intense, and the new master had to be emotionally and mentally ready to accept the burden of ownership. Otherwise, the seed-partners would reject the master. The ships were formed by and extension of Sekot, with the help of immense tree-factories known as Jentari. While not intelligent, Sekotan starships were no doubt alive, and could not survive without the physical and emotional contact of their masters. In order to obtain a ship, a prospective buyer had to locate an agent of Zonama Sekot, who would then arrange for transport to the planet. The planet's exact location was a well-guarded secret, and after the creation process was completed, the buyer had their short-term memory wiped clean to remove any trace of information on the planet or the creation process. After the disappearance of the planet Zonama Sekot some three years after the Battle of Naboo, all Sekotan starships suddenly withered and died, and no others were ever seen in the known galaxy again. This indicated that the living ships also needed a tenuous contact with Sekot itself in order to survive. The development of these starships followed the pattern of the lifecycle of a boras tree, with the seed-partners being forged into seed-disks, then annealed into starship form.
Sektor 242 NewsLine
this small, highly-accurate, and objective news agency was based in the Outer Rim. It has traditionally been wildly pro-alien, and is deeply supportive of individual rights. These traits were only heightened by the rise of Emperor Palpatine and the New Order.
this Twi'lek female held the rank of Captain within the Hawk-bat pirate command structure. In reality, the Ryloth native was Dia Passik. Seku was easily distinguished by the detailed tattoos which adorned her lekku. During a meeting with Zsinj, during which Castin Donn was discovered within the medical facilities of the Iron Fist, Seku was forced to shoot Donn, much to Dia's dismay. The only thing that kept her sane was the fact that Castin was already near death.

this world is one of the moons surrounding Selaggis Six, and was ostensibly in the control of Imperial Warlord Zsinj. Five months before the Battle of Selaggis, Zsinj discovered that a group of colonists had taken up residence on the moon. Infuriated, Zsinj punished them as an example to anyone who would dare to colonize a world within his borders, but without his permission. He destroyed the colony entirely, leaving nothing but ruins behind.
this yellow star was located at the center of a solar system containing seven planets. It was located eight light-years from Vahaba and close to the Halmad System. Lara Notsil and Tonin deleted its location from the navigational computer aboard the Iron Fist, hoping that Zsinj would be dragged out of hyperspace by its presence when he fled the battle against Han Solo and the Mon Remonda near Vahaba. Her plan worked, as the Iron Fist tried to flee but was brought out of hyperspace when it encountered the star.
this yellow-orange gas giant orbited the star Selaggis. It had a heavy debris ring, and was surrounded by several mons. Five months after Zsinj destroyed a colony on the moon of Selacron, Zsinj was forced to flee to Selaggis when he was caught by Han Solo and the Mon Remonda near Vahaba.

an Imperial Captain killed in battle.
this woman was captured, along with Dustil Onasi, during the Sith raid on the planet Taris, some 4,000 years before the Battle of Yavin. The pair were brought to Korriban for training, but Selene showed little aptitude for the Force. Uthar Wynn ordered her executed, so that the Sith would waste no more resource on her.
this huge, predatory sea creature was native to a single world, although its exact location was never discovered. Selenomes grew in huge reefs, a form of camouflage that allowed the colony to exist in plain sight. When a food source got too close to the reef, individual selenomes could reach out anf grab the prey. During the height of the Clone Wars, entire colonies of selenomes were exported by the Separatists for use as defense systems on aquatic worlds like Vandor-3.
this was the Gorothite term for The Scouring.
Selesin Medicinal Electronics
this small corporation produced a range of equipment that helped doctors and field medics maintain a being's physical well-being.
this woman was the Queen of the Icarii at the time when Imperial Commander Karda went rogue. Karda had been ordered to destroy the Icarri by his commanding officer, General Nim, and managed to poison the entire Icarii tribe and kill them. Karda then took Selestrine captive, hoping to gain riches and power through her ability to predict the future. Selestrine, already dismayed by the death of her tribe, tried to commit suicide by taking the same poison Karda had used on them. He discovered her plan before it could be complete, and beheaded her before the poison could destroy her head. A group of medics then encased her head in a life-sustaining casket covered with kneeb hide, and she predicted that General Nim would be killed in action. Her prophecy came true when Nim arrived to claim her head from Karda, and he killed Nim and his guards. Karda fled the Empire as a fugitive. It was during this time the Selestrine foresaw her own fate was held by a dark-shadowed man, but she saw nothing more than that. He made several stops and used several different ships in order to evade pursuit, but Selestrine began telling him of his own future. She predicted that Karda would hunted down and killed by Boba Fett exactly thirty-one days from the day he destroyed the Icarii, and she counted them down on a regular basis. This slowly drove Karda mad over the thirty-one days, during which time he had hidden among the brothers of the Ancient Order of the Pessimists on Maryx Minor. In the end, Selestrine's prophecy was proven correct, as Fett captured and killed Karda on Maryx Minor before taking posession of her disembodied head. However, Darth Vader himself was on Maryx Minor, hoping to take possession of her head. Selestrine realized that Vader was the dark man of her own future. She warned him of Vader's approach, and began taunting him as well. Fett took several strands of her bejeweled hair as a hedge against the future, and set out to defeat Vader. During the struggle between the two armor-clad opponents, Fett managed to retain possession of the small casket, until Vader cornered him at the lip of a lava pit. In an effort to throw off Vader's attacks, Fett kicked the casket into the pit. Selestrine believed she was finally dead, until Vader used the Dark Side of the Force to recover the casket before it could hit the lava. She then taunted Vader with visions of his own future, hoping that Vader would pay for the knowledge of his future by killing her. In this she was also proven correct, as Vader destroyed her head shortly before Emperor Palpatine ordered it delivered to him personally.

The SRD was developed to turn large quantities of raw materials into droids, without the need for dedicated manufacturing floorspace for multiple tools and equipment.
this searing ball of rock was the innermost planet of the Axum System, located in the Core Worlds.
this man served as the Imperial Colonel guarding the Mount Tantiss project on Wayland, during the early years of the New Republic. Selid earned his rank at a young age, was known for his no-nonsense approach to his duties, and rarely took time off from his job. Although he rankled at being given command of the Mount Tantiss base - considering it mere baby-sitting rather than a real command - he became involved in a battle of wills with Joruus C'baoth after the Guardian appeared on the planet. It was Selid who was forced to relay information on the death of General Covell to Thrawn and Captain Gilad Pellaeon, but the information available to him was incomplete. Selid was then faced with a series of strange orders from Thrawn, who had recognized that Covell's death was attributable to the insane Dark Jedi, Joruus C'baoth. Thrawn ordered Selid to seal off C'baoth in the Emperor's chambers, then seal off the mountain from any of the troops which had been in contact with either C'baoth or Covell. Selid didn't understand, but he moved swiftly to carry out the orders.
this Polis Massan was one of the many members of the archaeological team that was investigating the ancient civilization of the sundered world of Polis Massa, during the last years of the Old Republic. Selif Xam was trained as a physician, and served the archaeological team as a doctor and surgeon. Thus, when Padme' Amidala was brought to Polis Massa by Obi-Wan Kenobi, Selif Xam was on duty to assist in helping her deliver her twin babies. The birthing process of humans was quite unknown to Selif Xam, but he managed to adjust the programming of his medical droids to assist him.

this was the term used by the Krieks to describe their basic family unit.
this amphibious race was native to the planet Manaan. Humanoid in stature, the average Selkath was distinguished by its sleek, hydrodynamic body. Their long fingers were tipped with poisonous, retractable claws, although many Selkath used these claws only as a last resort. They were the sole producers of kolto during the height of the Great Sith War, and maintained very strict control over its production and export. They chose to remain neutral during the conflict, and tended to view themselves as superior to the rest of the galaxy. Other races regarded this as arrogance, but the Selkath refused to allow one side or the other to gain an advantage by controlling kolto. When production mysteriously halted, the Selkath appealed to the Old Republic for help. Since Manaan was not officially a member of the Republic, help was neved dispatched to the remote world. Since that time, kolto production had steadily recovered, but the Selkath vowed never to allow outside influences to control their planet or the production of kolto. Over the centuries, however, the Selkath civilization regressed into a primitive state, so that by the time Imperial scouts rediscovered the planet, the Selkath were living in undersea caverns and could barely understand the Basic language. Petty warlords staged unceasing raids on each other, leaving the Selkath with no formal defenses. Thus, when the Empire rediscovered the planet, the Selkath were quickly subjugated by Imperial forces. They were forbidden to return to the seas, and those few who tried were brutally punished. A few Selkath maintained a record of their previous prosperity, if only through stories, and remained hidden from their Imperial oppressors until they could stage a rebellion.
this was the native language of the Selkath race. It was formed from a series of guttural, throaty sounds that carried exceptionally well underwater.

this large, elephantine creature inhabited the tropical waters of the planet Corsin. Measuring four meters tall at the shoulder and up to twenty meters in length, selligore had colorful hides and were quite harmless despite their size. They lived on the plankton and small fish of their waters. Like other aquatic mammals, selligore could survive underwater for several hours before requiring a breath. Their four feet ended in four long toes, and a fin-like fan covered their dorsal ridge. Their large ears also resembled huge fins, and their long faces ended with four thick trunks.

this Imperial prison planet was located in the Seltaine System of Irishi Sector. The surface of the planet was utterly devoid of life, without plants or animals, and had barren, frigid landscape. The prison was contained in several domes which kept good air in and bad air out. This arrangement was often preferred by the Empire, because it made escape from the prison nearly impossible to survive. The average day on Selnesh lasts 37 standard hours, and its year lasts 489 local days.
this was the third month of the Tapani local calendar, which mapped almost directly to the Coruscant local calendar.

one of the five inhabited planets in the Corellian System, Selonia was an ocean world that was home to the Selonian race. The planet and its inhabitants was renowned for its poetry. Han Solo once told his children that Selonia was home to all of the Corellian System's sea monsters, because it was the only planet with oceans large enough to hold them. Much of the planet's crust and mantle was riddled with caves and passageways, and it was in these subterranean locations that the native Selonians made their warrens. For much of its history, Selonia remained aloof from the rest of the galaxy, preferring live in their warrens in relative peace.

one of the three primary races in the Corellian System, the Selonians are tall, strong, and quick. Often referred to as serious-minded and refined, the Selonians are well-muscled and covered with short, sleek fur, giving them a seal-like appearance. They have bristly whiskers on their noses, sharp teeth, and long tails. They are excellent swimmers. Taller and more slender than humans, they have long bodies and short limbs. Selonians are equally comfortable walking upright or on all-fours. Each hand or foot is equipped with retractable claws for climbing or defense. The Selonian race is believed to be descended from a predatory aquatic mammal which lived in riverside burrows, but later dug deeper into the ground and farther from water. Each burrow is inhabited by all members of a Selonian family; collectively, they are called a sept. Each sept is distinguished by its lone ferile male breeder. This male, along with the one fertile female, give birth to the sept's members. All male Selonians are born fertile; one of every hundred Selonians born is a male. Of 500 female Selonians, only one will be fertile. These fertile members of the sept, while revered for their fertility, are forced to remain in the burrows. The sterile females run the day-to-day activities of the sept. Non-familial groupings of Selonians, such as the government, are called dens. Each den is made up of sterile females. The Selonians have learned that dealing with other aliens, especially humans, is dangerous. Thus, only specially-trained females ever leave their burrows and contact the outside world. These females learn Basic in addition to the normal conversational Selonian tongue. All Selonians can also speak a modified language of sounds that is used in their burrows. Its pure sounds are not affected by echoes or other auditory anomalies caused by the burrows.
