Child of the Bowl
according to the religion of the Cosmic Balance, families were required to have children in pairs, in order to help maintain the balance of the galaxy. Under the Rule of Feather and Bowl, each pair of children was given an aptitude test during their teenage years, with the less-promising child being given a small, golden bowl. Then known as a Child of the Bowl, the teenager was sent to live in a communal Simple Home, forgoing wealth and luxury in order to balance out the wealth experienced by the Child of the Feather. However, the Child of the Bowl could look forward to living in relative wealth in the afterlife, thereby ensuring the continued balance of the galaxy. Many of these children eventually leave the religion of the Cosmic Balance, unsatisfied with the mere promise of a better Life To Come.
Child of the Feather
according to the religion of the Cosmic Balance, families were required to have children in pairs, in order to help maintain the balance of the galaxy.

Then known as a Child of the Feather, the teenager was allowed to remain in the Bakuran society and received educational funding from the Zanazi. This balanced out the relative poverty experienced by the Child of the Bowl. However, the Child of the Feather could look forward to living in relative poverty in the afterlife, thereby ensuring the continued balance of the galaxy.

Child of Winds opted to disobey his father and help Luke, after the Jedi indicated that Mara was a good friend who needed his help. The young Qom Qae continued to be invaluable, persuading the Qom Jha to help and helping Luke and Mara move around the compound by carrying them. When he learned that the Threateners would leave the Qom Qae and Qom Jha alone if Luke and Mara left and the Chiss were ignored, Child of Winds returned to his nesting to bring this news to his father.

this Imperial-II class Star Destroyer was commanded by Captain Pellaeon during the height of the galactic Civil War. In the wake of the Battle of Endor, Pellaeon rallied the surviving Imperial forces around the Chimaera and fled the Endor system to regroup. The ship was later used as Grand Admiral Thrawn's flagship, after Thrawn returned from the Unknown Regions to take control of the Empire some five years after the Battle of Endor. It was a ship which has survived numerous battles, most notably the Battle of Endor and the Battles of Sluis Van and Bilbringi. After Thrawn's death, Pellaeon retained command of the Chimaera, and used it as the command ship of the remaining Imperial fleet. However, as part of Operation Shadow Hand, the Chimaera was dispatched to capture the planet Duro. In the battle, the ship took heavy damage and had to be abandoned. The New Republic took possession of the ship and refitted it, but soon lost it - to Pellaeon himself - at the Battle of Gravlex Med. After the resolution of the Caamas Incident and the discredting of Moff Disra and Grodin Tierce, the Chimaera served as the site of the peace negotiations between Pellaeon and New Republic President Gavrisom. The aging ship became the stuff of legends, continuing to serve as Pellaeon's flagship during the years in which the Empire retreated into the Imperial Remnant. When the Yuuzhan Vong finally decided to attack the Imperials, the Chimaera was once again forced into battle, this time to protect Bastion. The Yuuzhan Vong attack was swift and deadly, and the Battle of Bastion resulted in a rout of the Imperial forces. The Chimaera took heavy damage to her hyperdrive, and Pellaeon was forced into a coma by injuries he sustained at the helm. The crew managed to get the ship back to Yaga Minor, where it was refitted and made battle-worthy once again.

this sport was played on a wide playing field. During the last years of the Old Republic, chin-bret was one of the most popular sports on the planet Coruscant, with most major matches being played at the T'Chuk Arena. The playing field was covered with a layer of sand, across which the players - known as chin-bretiers - leaped and bounded to reach the opponent's goal. At the start of play, one side served to the other, with pikers moving about to return the serve. The object was to score past the goalie - designated by a cerulean vest - as many times as possible while keeping the other team from scoring. The goalies moved about from side to side, carrying a torch-like device that was to be kept lit until the other team scored.
this was the name given to any being who played chin-bret.
see Zelosian's Chine.
this Yuuzhan Vong commander was in charge of the Creche', the yammosk ship which took on prisoners from Gyndine to help nurture a newborn yammosk. Chine-kal was distinguished by his clothing, which depicted and - in the case of the raptor in his turban and his strangely organic cape - was made up of animals. When he discovered that one of his captured slaves was actually Wurth Skidder, Chine-kal hoped to attain favor with Tsavoong Lah and the Yuzhan Vong leadership by presenting the Jedi to them. However, the Creche' was attacked at Kalarba by Kyp's Dozen, and Chine-kal was forced to flee. He headed for Fondor, hoping to meet up with the main fleet and rescue the yammosk on board. Instead, Kyp's small squadron followed them to Fondor and infiltrated the Creche'. They arrived too late to save Skidder, but managed to kill the yammosk and defeat Chine-kal. Chine-kal remained aboard the dying ship, but was killed when the blast from Centerpoint Station ripped through the Fondor System and incinerated the Creche'.

this city, located on the planet Shalyvane, was the spiritual focal point of the Em'liy race for many generations. During the Galactic Civil War, Darth Vader placed Shira Brie on Shalyvane near the city, so that she could infiltrate the Alliance forces that had been gathering on the planet. During the early years of the New Order, according to Shira, the non-human Em'liy of Shalyvane had agreed to sign a peace treaty with the humans, and a great celebration was to be held at the Circle of Kavaan. According to her story, the Em'liy had then destroyed the city themselves, a story that Imperial propaganda supported. Shira's story was later shown to be a fabrication when Luke Skywalker met G'hinji in the burned-out remains of a building near Chinshassa. In reality, thebombing of Chinshassa had been fully arranged by the Empire as a "disciplinary cleansing" of Shalyvane's rebellious population. The celebration was fabricated in order to gather the population into a single place, where Imperial forces could bombard supposed rebel activity. The Em'liy were upset and ashamed that they had not been vigilant enough to prevent the humans from entering the city, and chose to abandon their holy city rather than try to fight the Imperial propaganda. Chinshassa was left to fall to ruin, and the Em'liy turned to a nomadic lifestyle.

Chirpa had been married briefly to Ra-Lee, and had two daughters, Asha and Kneesaa. Shortly before the fateful events of the Battle of Endor, Chirpa found himself confronted with Han Solo, Leia Organa,and Luke Skywalker. He was reluctant to believe the words of the Alliance's ground assault team on Endor's forest moon, fearing them to be part of the Imperial force which was destroying their environment. However, after seeing C-3PO's magic and realizing their good intentions, Chirpa agreed to assist them in ridding the moon of the Imperial presence. He carried a staff made from the spine of a large lizard, and had a pet iguana who served as his chief advisor. After the death of the Emperor at Endor, Chirpa was forced to banish Logray from Bright Tree Village, when the shaman exiled Wicket for disagreeing with one of his commandments.

a creature that can regenerate lost body parts. Popular fiction says they can even regenerate their own heads.
this species of insect was native to the planet Socorro, and was known for its vicious nature. Named with the Socorran word for "deadly," the chiru was known to live in colonies of more than 100,000 individuals. They were attracted to vibrations, such as that of a starhip repulsorlift engine, and would swarm an unsuspecting traveler who went out into the desert in an unmuffled landspeeder. Their lifecycle was punctuated by the intense seasons experienced on Socorro. When the planet plunged into deep winter, huge portions of the chiru population were killed in the cold. Those that survived came out of hibernation as summer approached. The increasing heat triggered their mating instinct, and within months the colonies were fully populated again.
this Socorran term means "deadly."
this race of blue-skinned humanoids was from the planet Csilla, in the Unknown Regions. Their homeworld was locked in a planet-wide ice age many millennia ago, and they were forced to flee the planet as a species in order to survive. They are all well-muscled and tall, with jet black hair and glowing red eyes. While their history has been marked by nearly continual warfare and conquest of other worlds, the Chiss are generally not violent. They prefer to extend themselves only from a defensive posture, and viewed the idea of a pre-emptive strike against an enemy as if it were murder. This unspoken law dated back nearly a millennium before the Battle of Endor, and was one of the strongest points of Chiss honor and morality. Within Chiss society, children matured very quickly, never truly having an adolescent period before becoming adults. Many of the scientists at the Astrographic Survey Institute believed that the Chiss were among the first races to come in contact with the Yuuzhan Vong, some fifty years before their initial invasion. They theorized that the Chiss understood the Vong's military power, and began augmenting their own war machine to prepare to repel an invasion fleet. Unfortunately, the Chiss remained isolated in the Unknown Regions, and wouldn't allow contact with the New Republic after the Battle of Ithor. Chiss sages spent a great deal of time researching the Yuuzhan Vong, and eventually learned that it had taken the alien invaders many generations to cross the gulf between galaxies.

this was the lanugage spoken by the Chiss people, native to the planet Csilla.
this was a term used by many of the alien races native to the Unknown Regions to describe the Chiss civilization and its government. The Ascendancy was formed from nine ruling houses, each of which supported the Ascendancy with soldiers and ships for the protection of Chiss space. The Ruling Circle was then formed from the leaders of each house. During the years following the Yuuzhan Vong invasion of the galaxy, the Ascendancy's membership was suddenly reduced from nine houses to just four. Aristocra Formbi later explained to Luke Skywalker that the Vagaari Wars resulted in huge numbers of Chiss casualties. Several ruling houses were left so short of manpower that they were forced to turn to the Colony for labor. This arrangement worked well for several years, until Raynar Thul arrived on Yoggoy and created the Unu hive. Before the Chiss could understand what was happening, two entire families had become Joiners, and three other houses had become dependent on insect labor. An internal struggle within the Ascendancy led to the elimination of these five houses.
Chiss Expansionary Defense Fleet
this was the primary means of naval defense developed by the Chiss. Led by such commanders as Thrawn, it patrolled the Chiss sectors of the Unknown Regions in the years before the Clone Wars. Like all parts of the Chiss military, the CEDF was under the command of the Nuruodo family during the early years of the New Republic. However, the CEDF accepted soldiers and officers from all Chiss families. To distinguish members of the CEDF from other members of Chiss society, the CEDF uniform was primarily black in color, since black was considered the combination of all other colors.
(VOF, GMR5, FH1, SQ)
this was the intelligence agency that was allied with the Chiss Ascendancy.
this was one of the most common human surnames encountered in the galaxy.
this being served as the Governor of the planet Almas, in the decade leading up to the Battle of Naboo. He later served as the Governor of the city of Gadrin, on Cularin, during the years following the Battle of Naboo, and became the Cularin System's Governor shortly afterward. His administration was accused of several poor financial policies during the years leading up to the Clone Wars, policies that the Metatheran Cartel was quick to point out to the people of Cularin. With the onset of the Clone Wars, the Thaereian Military took control of the Cularin System under a Republic Charter, much to the dismay of the citizens of the system. Working beneath and around the law, Governor Chistor and his aides began passing legislation that worked to undermine the control of the Thaereians, in an effort to "legally" regain control of Cularin.
a native of Alderaan, Barnar Chistor yearned to be an explorer when he was very young. After being denied acceptance into a presitigious university on Alderaan, Chistor opted to attend a lesser school and discovered a flair for politics. However, his dreams of becoming an explorer were nearly destroyed because of his poor technical and scientific grades. He saw a chance to make a name for himself shortly after the Republic Bureau of Exploration and Colonization opened up the Cularin System for new oppportunities. He moved himself to Cularin and began to insinuate himself into the political structure in the city of Gadrin. He tried to lead an expedition to the moon of Uffel, only to discover that exploration was hard work. He decided that politics suited him much better, and was eventually elected governor of Gadrin shortly before the Battle of Naboo. He genuinely liked what he did, and tried to keep the populace uninterested in politics in order to secure his own position. He was taken aback by a request from the Five Masters of the Wookiee Liberation Front to build a school on Cularin, and spent a good deal of time researching them as construction continued. When the Five Masters arrived to take over the building, Chistor was again surprised when the Masters took him as their first student. He was cut off from all aspects of life on Cularin, instead being forced to concentrate on his new studies by his Zabrak Master.
this sibilant language was the native tongue of the Chistori race.
this was a lizard-like, humanoid race known for their imposing countenance. A secretive people, the Chistori were fiercely independent and known for their warrior society. Their homeworld was a mystery to the rest of the galaxy, and no record existed of them in the Jedi Archives of the Old Republic. Like most reptiles, the Chistori were cold-blooded, and their thick scales gave them a natural form of armor. Because of their reptilian nature, the Chistori avoided cold climates whenever possible.

this small marsupial, native to the planet Ord Cestus, was hunted as a food source by the Cestians. They lived in the caves that could be found along the treeline of the Zantay Hills, and were easily distinguished by their orange-striped pelt. The mammary secretions of the chitlik - known as kista - were used to make a number of tasty stews. In order to harvest the kista, however, the chitliks had to be captured alive, so humane traps were set each night.

this young boy was a student at the Jedi Temple on Coruscant during the last years of the Old Republic. Known for his enormous spirit and charm, Pax was just eleven years old at the height of the Clone Wars. Many of his fellow students believed that Pax actually used the Force to make people like him, a skill that was borne out when he was paired against Tallisibeth Enwandung-Esterhazy in the Apprentice Tournament. He gently persuaded her to let him win their match, and might have succeeded if Scout hadn't figured out what he was doing. Scout eventually defeated Pax by using some of the hand-to-hand fighting techniques she had learned. Pax watched Scout's progress throughout the tournament, and was as surprised as everyone else when Scout ended up winning the whole thing. As he explained to her afterward, she opened his eyes to the roles of resourcefulness and tenacity in the actions of a Jedi.

this star system was located near the Al'har System, along the Gevarno Loop. During the Clone Wars, the Ch'manss System was loyal to the Old Republic.
this H'drachi seer adopted the infant Mora when her family was killed. Ch'no knew that she would later be revealed as the sole living heir to the ruling house of M'haeli, but he kept that secret for a long time. His adoption of Mora put him at odds with the other H'drachi, who saw the presence of humans on their planet as a scourge. Ch'no and Mora were the only two beings which could disrupt the time-streams on M'haeli, which made travelling among other H'drachi without being seen nearly impossible.
this was one of the most common given names used for human males throughout the galaxy.
Cho Leem, Thracia
this woman was a Jedi Master, and a contemporary of Mace Windu. She was easily distinguished by her close-cropped grey hair and her aquiline features, which offset her short stature. Her strength was in healing and in the training of female Jedi Knights, and often ignored male padawan candidates. She was often away from Coruscant on her own explorations, allowing the will of the Force to tell her when to travel again, but was always aware of the progress of young Anakin Skywalker. In fact, she was one of the few Masters who chided the Jedi Council for being too stodgy to truly advance Anakin's training. However, in the aftermath of Vergere's disappearance and the discoveries found on the planet Zonama Sekot, she left the Order and disappeared herself.
cho mai was one of the more preferred forms of striking an opponent with a lightsaber. The Jedi Knight who employed a cho mai attack cut off an opponent's weapon hand, eliminating the threat of attack while causing minimal physical damage. In addition to the fact that cho mai caused little harm to the opponent, it showed great skill and respect on the part of the Jedi who executed the maneuver. The precision required to complete cho mai indicated a Jedi's skill and technique.
related to the "marks of contact" known as cho mai and cho sun, cho mok involved the maiming of an opponent by cutting off a leg or other appendage. It was most often used whenever other techniques failed to halt an opponent's advances, but was considered by many Jedi Masters to show a lack of respect for life.
Cho Nor Hoola
this dish was considered a Hutt delicacy. Many non-Hutts thought it tasted like cooked rubber.
this New Republic Navy Engineering Chief served under Commander Zoalin aboard the Adamantine, and was killed on board the ship by the Death Seed plague.
similar to the "mark of contact" known as cho mai, cho sun was the cutting off of an opponent's entire arm. While this was equally effective in eliminating an opponent's weapon while causing minimal damage, cho sun was considered less elegant than cho mai. Nevertheless, it was often the quickest way to deal with an aggressive opponent, when surprise was necessary or when no chances could be taken.

this Dug worked as an interrogation expert for Jib Kopatha, during the early years of the Galactic Civil War. Choba was brought in to torture Han Solo for information about the location of the Alliance fleet, in the wake of the Battle of Yavin, as part of terms for the repayment of Sheel Odala's debt to Kopatha. Solo refused to cooperate, and Kopatha became increasingly angry at both Solo and Choba. It was then that Sheel and Chewbacca arrived to rescue Solo. As they entered Kopatha's lair, Sheel shot Choba in the neck, killing the Dug instantly.

this unusual landmark, located on the planet Iego, was found between the Boneyard and the Scatter. Considered too angular to be a natural structure, the Alignment was a shallow valley was had been carved out in the shape of a nine-pointed star. Those beings who had returned from visits to Iego reported that, when they stood in the center of the valley and looked up at the moons, the moons seemed to align in elegant geometric patterns. The Choir Alignment was one of the only places on the planet that the Diathim would actually touch down for extended periods of time. Such congregations were wondrous sights, with the gathered Diathim forming a brilliant column of light that rose from the center of the star.
