this modified YT-1300 freighter was owned by Haber Trell and Maranne Darmic. They used to smuggler weapons to the rebel underground on Derra IV. The ship looked as if it had been split down the middle, then the two halves patched together one on top of the other. It was destroyed by the 181st Imperial Fighter Group when the Empire ambushed the Alliance's supply convoy at Derra IV, shortly before the Battle of Hoth.
this game of a simple strategy can be played by two or more players, in a single-handed or two-handed method.
this man was Leia Organa's professor of history, during her early education on Alderaan. Years later, Leia encountered Horada on Metalorn, after she escaped from the clutches of Governor Corwyth. She had traveled to metalorn to locate Professor Horada and learn about the Empire's activities on the planet, but she barely had time to talk to him. When Baron Orman Tagge tried to capture Leia, Horada kicked a table into Tagge's path, causing him to trip and giving Leia a chance to escape.
this one-eyed Sith warrior was loyal to Naga Sadow, although he was unsure of the Lord's true motivations. Horak-mul sided with Ludo Kressh following the death of Marka Ragnos. After Kressh discovered that Sadow had tricked the Sith into believing an Old Republic war force was coming, Horak-mul and Dor Gal-ram followed Kresh to Rhelg to plan an attack on Sadow. They led the Sith fleet to Khar Delba, and were extremely confident when the fortress put up little resistance. Horak-mul , however, was unaware of the deception of Naga Sadow, who was hiding on Khar Shian. He was also unaware that many of Sadow's spies were onboard his ship. When Sadow gave the command, the spies attacked Horak-mul and killed him just before Sadow defeated Ludo Kressh.
a particularly ruthless card game popular among the Alliance's starfighter pilots.
an alien race which has four tribes - the Kasa, Gorvan, Mashi, and Treka Horansi. The Horansi are a sentient, feline race native to the planet Mutanda. Their primitive, tribal society was equally welcoming to the Empire or the Republics. They recognized the importance of the prothium mines in their system and played upon it, selling themselves out as hunting guides for the miners and soldiers stationed there. The average Horansi was bipedal, although they could run on all fours when the terrain dictated it. Their night vision is especially acute, allowing them to track prey in low-light conditions.
native to the planet Nelvaan, this immense, reptilian creature was considered the apex predator of the planet's ecosystem. Standing some fifteen meters tall at the shoulder, the grey-skinned horax moved about on four stout, muscular legs. Its head was protected by two thick horns on the end of its snout, while four sharp tusks protruded from its vicious jaws. The horax used its horns to dig up its favored food, siltcrawlers, and it could consume an entire colony in one feedings. Its thick skin and heavy tail, which was lined with spines and ended in a bony club, provided the horax with more than adequate protection. However, despite its physical prowess, the horax was slowly dying out, primarily due to its own territoriality. Because only on horax could exist in a given area, they were continually killing each other in battles for their territories. The native Nelvaanians discovered that a potion made from the scales of a horax could keep the creature at bay, and it was something of a rite of passage for young Nelvaanian warriors to locate a horax and acquire a scale or two before being caught.
also known as Horch of Kheedar, this two-bit crimelord ruled the criminal elements of the planet Kheedar until the planet was invaded by Imperial forces. His lackeys panicked and fled, leaving his fortress undefended. Horch was faced with imminent death at the hands of the Imperials, until Noval Garaint took control of his fortress. Rather than death, Horch chose to become a slave to Garaint, who usurped control of Horch's empire. Horch kept himself blissfully unaware of his predicament by sotting himself with spice liquor.
an Imperial tug stationed at the NL-1 station near Pakuuni.
this hot ball of rock was the innermost planet of the Thanta Zilbra System. It was orbited by a single moon, but both were destroyed when the Sacorrian Triad destroyed the system as part of the Starbuster Plot.
this was one of the many clans of Gamorreans. Their fortress was located near that of the Glonnk clan, until the Glonnk's attacked and forced the Horgks to move elsewhere. Note that this clan is also referred to as the Norgk clan in The Essential Guide to Planets and Moons.
this being served as a Commander in the armed forces created by the InterGalactic Banking Clan. He also saw duty during the Clone War.
this Strike-class cruiser was part of the Alliance's fleet, during the height of the Galactic Civil War.
this luxury space yacht was produced by SoroSuub during the years leading up to the Yuuzhan Vong invasion of the galaxy. The basic design measured fifty-five meters in length, and required a pilot to operate as well as an astromech droid or a living navigator to keep the ship on course. The interior of the yacht was spacious enough to accommodate ten passengers and 100 metric tons of supplies. The basic model Horizon-class yacht had a hyperdrive and minimal shielding, and lacked any weaponry. However, most owners quickly added laser or blaster cannons to protect themselves from pirates.
classified as a "light" hyperdrive, this Incom system was designed to be a backup system to a starship's normal hyperdrive. The Horizon-Hopper was one-third as powerful as a stock hyperdrive. Note that Tales from the New Republic claims the Horizon-Hopper is an old, outdated hyperdrive manufactured by SoroSuub.
part of a hyperdrive system, it provides energy to the ionization chamber to cause ignition.
this man served the Alliance as a Sergeant in command of a ground assault team during the Galactic Civil War.

When it discovered that Tilotny had "thrown a shape" and created a physical manifestation of herself, Horliss-Horliss did the same. It bacame a subtle, billowing mist. Horliss-Horliss had the power to create null inversions, as well as the ability to turn organic matter into solid material. He proves himself equal to Tilonty in this ability by solidifying Leia Organa's internal organs, leaving Splendid Ap to return her to normal.
this was one of the most common given names used for human males throughout the galaxy.
this native of the planet Fedalle was typical of his culture. He didn't care who was in control of the galaxy, as long as he and his people were taken care of. He vaguely supported Emperor Palpatine during the New Order, and similarly gave vague support to Mon Mothma after the establishment of the New Republic. He had many contacts within the industrial circles of the Core, which allowed him to maintain a powerful position among the New Republic's councillors. Horm's general attitude was to "go with the flow" of things, but he could be ruthless and overbearing when he wished. It was for this reason that he pressed Leia Organa to enter a marriage with Prince Isolder of Hapes, hoping to cement an allegiance for Alderaan as well as for the Republic. Horm was an obese man confined to a repulsorchair, and his thinning hair was kept meticulously curled. To signify his position, Horm wore a number of large, jewel-studded rings on his chubby fingers. Horm was also the president of the Alderaanian Council. As such, he was revered by the expatriots of Alderaan who survived the Galactic Civil War. Note that he was called Hrekin Thorm in Dark Apprentice.

this mountain range straddled the Lycinder Plain, on the planet Troiken.
this was one of the most common surnames found among the human population of Corellia.
this was a remote planet which was overtaken by the crimelord Shoto Eyefire during the last decades of the Old Republic. The natives of the planet, a race of hulking, green-skinned, reptilian humanoids, were subjugated by Eyefire until an anonymous Jedi Knight took out the crimelord in a blastfight.
this Corellian was a Captain at one time in Wedge Antilles' Rogue Squadron. Corran was a member of the Corellian Security Force before trying out for Rogue Squadron. He joined the training academy as his father, Hal, had before him, and excelled in the training at a level above his father's. He worked with Iella Wessiri under Gil Bastra, and fell in with Bastra's anti-Imperial philosophy. During an undercover mission with his father, Corran's mother was fatally injured in an accident with a drunk driver. They rushed to the hospital, where she died after seeing them one last time. With the appointment of Kirtan Loor as his superior, and with Hal's death at the hands of the Trandoshan bounty hunter Bossk, Corran knew that his future on Corellia was limited. Corran and Bastra created false smuggler ids for each other, the Wessiri's, and two other Alliance supporters, and then staged a scenario in which Corran killed them in cold blood. Corran claimed that he was only following the orders of Kirtan Loor, but Loor felt that Corran was trying to upstage him. When Corran defected to the Alliance, Loor put out an Imperial deathmark on Corran's head. During one of his training simulations, Corran tried to change the basic set of maneuvers for the Requiem scenario, slowing to a near-stop to trying and draw the TIE Fighters, and TIE Bombers to him and away from the Redemption. He succeeded, making nine kills and surviving even Tycho Celchu, who was piloting a TIE Fighter. Corran later became one of Antilles' best pilots, taking on the hardest missions and surviving them. Corran kept his grandfather's JedCred on a chain around his neck, rubbing it for luck during these missions. He was instrumental in the liberation of Borleias from the Empire, and went undercover to assist the New Republic in gaining information on Coruscant. However, while on the Coruscant mission, Corran's Z-95 Headhunter was brought down by remote control - presumably by Tycho Celchu - and crashed in the Invisible Sector of Coruscant's Imperial City. He was captured and brought to Ysanne Isard at Lusankya for interrogation. He proved to be incorrigible, and Isard consigned him to the rock mines. There, he met the prisoner Jan and devised an escape plan. Corran discovered that the gravity at Lusankya was reversed to keep the prisoners disoriented, and escaped to discover that Lusankya was buried beneath Imperial City. After spending six weeks in the Lusankya facility, he arrived at Tycho's trial and proved Tycho innocent. He also relayed information on a hidden Jedi museum buried near Lusankya to Luke Skywalker, who found the museum in a hidden section of the Galactic Museum. Luke offered Corran the chance to become a Jedi Knight, but Corran refused. He opted to continue to serve with Rogue Squadron. It was at about this time that Corran became romantically involved with Mirax Terrik, a situation whose irony was not lost on either of them. Corran's father, Hal, had been the one to send Booster Terrik to Kessel for smuggling. Mirax, though, held none of her father's enmity, and wasted no time in agreeing to marry Corran. After the Battle of Thyferra, they were married by Wedge Antilles aboard the Lusankya, in order to avoid any interference from Booster. A more elaborate ceremony was held on Coruscant upon their return. Corran remained with Rogue Squadron, and spent time battling Grand Admiral Thrawn and the reborn Emperor Palpatine's forces at Coruscant - the home he and Mirax build was one of the first victims of the falling Star Destroyer Liberator. When the battle to eliminate the Invid pirates led Mirax into danger, Corran joined Luke Skywalker's Jedi praxeum on Yavin 4 and began to learn more about the Force. A rival of Gantoris, Corran was a slow but steady learner. However, after the defeat of Exar Kun and following a visit with his grandfather on Corellia, Corran realized that he didn't need to become a Jedi to find Mirax. He infiltrated the Khuiumin Survivors and joined the Invids, attracting the attention of Leonia Tavira. In order to scatter the Invids, he started portraying an "avenging Jedi" on Courkrus, killing Shala the Hutt before getting most of the Invids to flee. When he came under the attack of Tavira's Jensaarai warriors, though, he was rescued by Luke Skywalker and took off to rescue Mirax on Suarbi 7/5. They succeeded in rescuing here, then Corran used his ability with the Force to lead Tavira to believe she was under attack by the New Republic and the destroyed Sun Crusher. Tavira fled, and things slowly returned to normal. Corran opted not to return to Yavin 4, a decision which Luke agreed to wholeheartedly. Luke did allow Corran one parting gesture, though: Corran destroyed Exar Kun's statue and temple on Yavin 4 with a volley of proton torpedoes, forever eliminating the focal point of Sith energy on the moon. After he resigned his commission with the New Republic and Rogue Squadron, Corran returned to Yavin 4 to complete his Jedi training, where he was known for his ability to project images into the minds of others. By the time of the Yuuzhan Vong invasion, Corran was a full Jedi Knight. Like his grandfather, Corran found that he had no ability to move objects through the Force, something that many considered a basic skill of a Jedi. He was one of the Jedi who felt Luke was doing his best to bring new Knights along slowly, although he often found himself in the minority. Corran was teamed up with Ganner Rhysode during the early stages of the Yuuzhan Vong invasion, and the pair struggled to agree on virtually everything. They eventually discovered a grudging respect for each other. When Corran and Ganner attempted to rescue the slaves they found on Bimmiel, Corran was mortally wounded by a Yuuzhan Vong amphistaff. Ganner returned to recover Corran's body, quickly dunking him in bacta and drawing the poison out so that Corran survived. In the wake of the battle, Corran learned that the planet Garqi had been invaded, and that he had been called up to serve as a Colonel in their militia. This mission allowed him to scout out the Yuuzhan Vong actions on the planet, as well as forming a resistance group and planning for the evacuation of civilians if necessary. He was allowed to take a group of six Noghri with him, and they discovered that the pollen of the bafforr tree was deadly to vonduun crab armor. However, before the New Republic could take advantage of this, the Yuuzhan Vong attacked Ithor. The Yuuzhan Vong commander, Shedao Shai, also murdered Elegos A'Kla, and sent his bones back to Corran as a threat. Corran and the rest of the Jedi were allowed to defend the planet from ground assault, and Corran eventually confronted Shedao Shai. They agreed to a duel: Corran fighting for Ithor and Shedao Shai for the remains of Mongei Shai. Corran barely managed to defeat the Yuuzhan Vong commander, but that defeat left Deign Lian in command of the alien fleet. Lian fired on Ithor with a bacteria-riddled bioweapon which destroyed all life on Ithor's surface. Then, the Legacy of Torment was destroyed, and it crashed into Ithor's surface. As the ship exploded and flames engulfed Ithor's surface, Corran was labeled in the news media as "the man who killed Ithor." For his own part, Corran felt himself slipping dangerously close to the Dark Side of the Force, having wanted to kill Shedao Shai in revenge for Elegos A'Kla's death, rather than to protect Ithor. He resigned his position with the Jedi Knights in order to meditate on his actions and try to return to an equilibrium. Corran returned to action during the struggle to free the students of the Jedi praxeum on Yavin 4, helping to rescue the crew of the Idiot's Array. He was later reinstated to the New Republic Navy, and he took command of Rogue Squadron during the period following the Battle of Borleias. When the planet Zonama Sekot was discovered to be hiding in the Unknown Regions by Luke Skywalker and a band of Jedi, Corran was assigned to lead Tahiri Veila on a mission to meet with the Yu'shaa, the Yuuzhan Vong Prophet who was searching for Zonama Sekot himself. During the final stages of the battle against the Yuuzhan Vong, after the living planet Zonama Sekot agreed to help bring about an end to the conflict, Corran was one of several Jedi Knights were bonded to seed-partners and provided with Sekotan starships. For his actions during the conflict with the Yuuzhan Vong, Corran was elevated to the rank of Jedi Master, and spent several years training a Padawan known as Raltharan. In the wake of the Qoribu Crisis, Corran found himself in an odd position when Luke Skywalker was stranded on Woteba. The Chief of State of the Galactic Alliance, Cal Omas, demanded that a leader be chosen for the new Jedi Order, in order to bring about an end to the problem of the Dark Nest. With Master Skywalker mission, Omas pushed for Corran to become the new leader of the Jedi Order.

Corran Horn's father, Hal's given name was Valin Halcyon. After his father, Nejaa Halcyon, was killed in the Clone Wars, Rostek Horn married Nejaa's widow and erased all information on the Halcyon family. He hoped this would hide his new family from Emperor Palpatine, and the name Hal was used to honor to Nejaa Halcyon. Rostek kept a JedCred as a memoir of Nejaa Halcyon, and later gave it to Hal as a medallion. Hal was ten years old when Nejaa died. He was an excellent graduate of the Corellian Security Force Academy, and attended the Academy twenty years before his son. Hal Horn was the investigating officer who looked into Soontir Fel's disruption of Ilir Post's assault on Pamr, and was given the assignment to investigate the explosion on Gus Treta that killed Wedge Antilles' parents. Hal kept a watchful eye on Wedge, but declared him a hopeless fool when Wedge started running weapons for the Alliance. Hal later married a Corellian woman, and they had a son together, whom they named Corran. Corran grew up to follow in Hal's footsteps, also becoming a CorSec agent. When Corran matured, Hal presented him with the JedCred medallion, claiming it came from a friend of his father's who was a Jedi. As a team, they were quite effective. On one undercover mission, they learned that Hal's wife had been fatally injured by a drunk driver. They rushed to the hospital to see her, and she died shortly afterward. Several years later, Hal was killed on a mission with Corran, during which they flew separate ships to intercept a smuggling ship, and they met little resistance. However, the smuggler was also the target of the bounty hunter Bossk. Corran had become relaxed, and wasn't checking other sensors because the smuggler was in their sights. Bossk, under a valid Imperial warrant, was trying to target the smuggler, but shot Hal Horn instead in an cantina. Corran was poweless to stop it, and was forced to comfort Hal as he died. Corran held himself responsible for the death of his father for many years.

this Corellian woman married Hal Horn, and was Corran Horn's mother.
Corran Horn's adopted grandfather, Rostek was also a member of the Corellian Security Force and a contemporary of Fliry Vorru. He was good friend's with Corran's real grandfather, Nejaa Halcyon, and took care of his family after Halcyon's death. Rostek used his position within CorSec to eliminate all traces of the Halcyon family, hoping to hide Nejaa's widow and young son from Palpatine's Jedi purge. Rostek eventually married Nejaa's widow, and cared for her son Valin, whom they renamed Hal in honor of Nejaa Halcyon. Rostek lived to a ripe old age, but was held on Corellia by the will of the Diktat, even after the Battle of Endor. In his spare time, Rostek was known in several circles as the producer of some of Corellia's most beautiful flowers, hybrids he created in his private greenhouse. When the Diktat modified the Corellian Security Force into the Public Safety Service, he burned down Rostek's house - as well as Hal Horn's - hoping to eliminate the files Rostek had kept on public officials and other influential people. Rostek, however, had maintained several copies, and they began showing up in the mail of these officials, marked with one of the beautiful hybrid blossoms. In return for his continued silence, Rostek was awarded a grand new residence on the site of his old one. The PSS maintained watches on Rostek, and even tried to infiltrate his staff. Much had been made about Rostek's use of blossoms when sending his messages, and leaders debated the relative meanings of a live flower versus and cut specimen. In reality, Rostek had been using the redundant genes in the flowers' DNA to encode information about the Halcyon heritage, in hopes that Corran or Hal would return and claim it.

this was the nickname used by one of the most fearsome Advozse assassins, who was active during the last years of the Old Republic.
this was the name given to the first son of Corran Horn and Mirax Terrik. Valin was born about four years after the death of Grand Admiral Thrawn. He was named for his grandfather, Valin Halcyon. Like his father, Valin was Force-sensitive, and eventually attended the Jedi praxeum on Yavin 4 for training. By the time he was eleven, Valin found that he had an affinity with animals, and could use the Force to commune with this. However, like his father and grandfather, Valin had almost no skills in telekinesis. Valin was trapped on Yavin 4 when the Peace Brigade blockaded the system in an effort to capture the Jedi students and turn them over to the Yuuzhan Vong. Valin, with Sannah and Kam Solusar, managed to survive until Anakin Skywalker could rescue them. Like many of the younger Jedi trainees, Valin was forced to train aboard the Errant Venture after the Yuuzhan Vong took control of Yavin 4.

It is lightly armored and shielded, but is highly maneuverable. It employs a pair of laser cannons - which can be upgraded to turbocharged laser cannons - as its only armament. The Hornet was initially used only by Tenloss and those groups it allowed access to the Hornet, although shady deals with other criminals and organizations have made the Hornet available elsewhere. The Hornet measures 14 meters in length.

located on the moon-station of Hosk, this arena was the site of many gladiator droid fights during the height of the New Order.
an Alderaan Royal Engineers Esseles-class space station located in orbit around Kalarba, it was built across the surface of Kalarba's largest moon, Hosk. The station was originally designed to be an Old Republic supply and maintenance post, a role which it served for thousands of years. The expansion of the galaxy brought more and more colonists to the surrounding systems, and suddenly Hosk Station was no longer as important as it used to be. The station was sold to civilian interests on the planet Kalarba. The station was nearly destroyed by Olag Greck when a droid barge delivered C-3PO, R2-D2, and IG-88 to the station. C-3PO and R2-D2 had been put up for auction by their previous owner, Master Wena, and were being shipped to Hosk for assignment. IG-88 escaped, and C-3PO and R2-D2 were jettisoned to the planet Kalarba, where they were acquired by the Pitareeze family. C-3PO and R2-D2 returned to the station with Nak and his grandfather, and were left to join a group of renegade droids who were ready to rebel against Olag Greck's war droids and their control over them. Under the careful command of Unit Zed, the droids were able to defeat Greck's various war droids and foil Greck's attempt to steal a load of ash ore. In the process, they also were able to reroute an explosion rigged by Greck to blow up the stations' power core. Many years later, during the Yuuzhan Vong invasion of the galaxy Hosk Station was destroyed shortly after the Battle of Fondor, as the Vong attempted to eliminate all non-organic technologies.
