Low-Altitude Assault Transport (LAAT)
this was the generic form of gunship produced for the Army of the Republic by Rothana Heavy Engineering. There were several forms of the 17.4-meter-long vehicle, designated by their mission profile. The LAAT/i was used to deliver clone trooper infantry into battlezones. The LAAT/c was modified to transport AT-TE walkers into battle. The LAAT/v was a vehicle transport, with its hold being used to move speederbikes or other land vehicles to new locations. These ships could attain speeds near 920 kilometers per hour in atmosphere. Each gunship was armed with a wealth of weaponry, including four ball turret laser cannons, two mass-drive missile launchers, four ship-to-ground rockets on each wing, and a pair of chin-mounted laser cannons. (NEGV)

Lowan
this redheaded man was training to fly starfighters for the New Republic at the same time as Lara Notsil. Lowan had a very high opinion of himself, and was thoroughly obnoxious when he learned that Lara had been assigned to Atton Repness' training group. (IF)

Lowbacca
a Wookiee, and Chewbacca's nephew. Lowie, as his friends call him, is somewhat gifted with the Force, and is allowed to enroll in Luke Skywalker's Jedi Academy on Yavin 4. He is a ginger-colored Wookiee, with a unique streak of black fur that runs around his chest and down his back. His anger was discovered by Tamith Kai when she had to kidnap him to get to the Solo twins. She continually goaded Lowie at the Shadow Academy, trying to lead him down the path to the Dark Side. Lowie was eventually captured, but was rescued before he could be turned to the Dark Side. Lowie returned to Yavin 4, and created his own lightsaber of molten bronze light. Later, he returned to Kashyyyk to attend his sister, Sirrakuk, in her rite of passage to adulthood. There, following an attack by the Shadow Academy, Lowie rescued Sirra as she battled the Nightsister Vonnda Ra in the depths of Kashyyk's jungle. He managed to save Sirra before a syren plant consumed her. When the Diversity Alliance grew to power, Lowbacca was taken captive, along with his sister and Lusa. They were eventually rescued by the Solo children, and testified against the Diversity Alliance on Coruscant. Following the death of Chewbacca at Sernipdal, Lowbacca and his cousin, Lumpawaroo, were chosen to continue serving out the life-debt to Han Solo and his family. Han, still grieving the loss of Chewbacca, asked them to wait until he had reconciled Chewie's death before taking over for him. Lowbacca was patient enough to wait for Han's decision, and spent much of his time watching over the Solo children. Lowbacca was one of the Jedi chosen for the assault on the Baanu Rass at Myrkr, and was one of the few Jedi to survive the destruction of the voxyn queen. After the theft of the Ksstarr, Lowbacca set his mind to fathoming Yuuzhan Vong technology. With Jaina's help, they managed to decipher that every Yuuzhan Vong ship emitted a unique gravitic signature, which allowed the alien invaders to track each of their ships throughout the galaxy. As Jaina becamoe more and more driven to find a solution, Lowbacca feared that she might turn to the Dark Side of the Force in order to defeat the Yuuzhan Vong. However, he recognized that their work - coupled with that of Sinsor Khal on Gallinore - might help the New Republic defeat the Yuuzhan Vong. Lowbacca later served as one of Jaina Solo's Lieutenants in the Twin Suns Squadron, and was instrumental in the development of the Force-meld. During the Battle of Ebaq, Lowbacca was attacked on Ebaq 9 by the Yuuzhan Vong Warmaster, Tsavong Lah, after the Jedi confronted him in the mines. Lowbacca was speared through the shoulder by Tsavong Lah's staff of rank, removing him from battle as he tried to repair his vacuum suit. When Jaina Solo defeated the Warmaster, Lowbacca was brought back to the surface and eventually recovered. 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, Lowbacca was one of several Jedi Knights were bonded to seed-partners and provided with Sekotan starships. As the many Jedi scattered into the galaxy to help with its rebuilding, Lowbacca joined his cousin Waroo in taking up Chewbacca's life debt to Han Solo. Five years later, when UnuThul sent out his call for help, Lowbacca was among seven young Jedi who dropped whatever mission they were currently on and traveled to the Unknown Regions to answer the call. During the defense of the moons Ruu and Zvbo, Lowbacca was forced to eject from his damaged starfighter, and was picked up by a Chiss warship before he could be rescued by his fellow Jedi. He was held prisoner until the conflict over Kr was resolved, with the Gorog nest being destroyed and the Qoribu hives being relocated to another world deeper in the Unknown Regions. Lowbacca was then allowed to return to the Galactic Alliance, but only after Jagged Fel argued for his release. (HTF, SA, DK, TEP, HT, SBS, DJ, Y, DW, UF, DN1)

Lowen
this race of near-humans was native to the planet Low'n. They were easily distinguished from baseline human stock by the fleshy tendrils which hung from their shoulders and skull. The base of their skull is dominated by thick lumps, similar to - but smaller than - the lekku of the Twi'lek. (SWJ10)

Lower City
this was term used to describe the lower levels of the cityscape of the planet Taris, some 4,000 years before the Battle of Yavin. As the planet fell into disrepair, the wealthier and more powerful human natives escaped to the Upper City and left the Lower City to those they called the Outcasts. Crime and other illicit activities quickly gained footholds in the Lower City, and swoop gangs rose to power in an effort to control sections of the Lower City. (KOTOR)

Lowickan Firegems
the mining, sale, and distribution of these precious minerals was monopolized by the Empire, following the blockade of the Pa'Lowick System. They were known to be found in only one place: the Lowick Asteroid Belt, near the planet Kessel. How or why these unusual gems form is unknown, but they are usually deep red in color and seem to glow from within. The molecular structure of the firegem vibrates constantly, creating a heat source that makes the gems feel warm to the touch. Criminal and terrorist organizations discovered that the vibration of the firegem has an adverse reaction when placed near a hyperdrive reactor, causing the reactor to explode when the ship enters hyperspace. For this reason, they were outlawed during the Old Republic as well as the New Order. (TB, AE, TBSB)

Lowickese
this was the native language of the Pa'lowick race. For many millennia, there was no written form of the language. However, after the introduction of technology to Lowick, the Pa'lowick adapted the Basic alphabet to fit their needs. This new, hybrid alphabet resembled gibberish to most other beings. (UANT)

Lowwel was known to have bragged in Gundark's Gear Datalog that he used a CS-12 Stun Master to incapacitate the crew, so that he could steer the ship to his waiting friends. This allowed them to steal the loot without killing anyone. Lowwel claimed that he and his associates were the thieves who stole the prototype of the SoroSuub NLZ5-11 Dragon suit of power armor.

native to the planet Usean II, this large herbivore was known for the huge teeth it possessed. Many xenobiologists hypothesized that the incisors which scissored in front of its mouth were merely a bluff, evolved over time to scare away potential predators. The incisors swiveled on temporomandibular joints, but could not open wide enough to be a real threat. Wilek Nereus collected a set of these unusual teeth, claiming that they came from the "Useani camnzin." (TBSB)

Located in the city of Mos Ethna, the Lucky Star was owned and operated by Shiri'ani, who was one of Lady Valarian's most trusted subordinates. Because of Valarian's negotiations with the New Republic, Shiri'ani was not required to pay any form of taxes to the New Republic based on the operations or income from the Lucky Star, a fact that made the bottom line of the business quite spectacular. In order to draw a larger tourist trade, Shiri'ani promoted the Lucky Star as the only place that off-worlders could experience the "real Tatooine." To this end, she hired a select group of local criminals to serve as regulars. In addition to its legitimate operations, the Lucky Star also served as a base of operations for Shiri'ani's smuggling and gambling organizations. (SOT)

Over the years, Lucone funded several bounty hunters and mercenaries to recover Joodsen and the Redshift Runner, but none was ever successful. (SS)

Lucre
this supply transport ship was part of the small fleet that supported the Errant Venture, during the Yuuzhan Vong invasion of the galaxy. Booster Terrik maintained the fleet to transport all manner of supplies to the Star Destroyer, in order to hide the ship's exact location from other beings. The Lucre was the ship used by Corran Horn, Anakin Solo, and Tahiri Veila to set out to obtain supplies on Eriadu, shortly after the Battle of Duro. (EVR)

Lucre Cosminational Bank

Lucrehulk-class Core Ship
developed by Hoersh-Kessel Drive Incorporated, this spherical core ship served as the central command center for the Trade Federation's hoop-shaped LH-3210 freighters and battleships. The 696-meter-diameter ship was designed to detach from the main freighter, allowing personnel and troops to travel to a planet's surface while the main freighter section remained in space. Each Lucrehulk-class core descended into a specially-designed silo for loading and maintenance. 280 light laser cannons were scattered across the surface of the core for defense, allowing the ship to travel to and from a planet's surface in relative security. The core ship required a crew of 60 officers and 3,000 droids, with another 200,000 maintenance droids ensuring that all systems were operative. Staterooms located within the center of the core ship provided living space for up to 6,000 trade representatives, allowing the Trade Federation to transport guests in relative ease. Hangars and docking space were found in the outer layers, allowing the Federation to move MTTs, AATs, and entire droid armies to a planet's surface. The mission profile of the Lucrehulk-class core ship required minimal drive systems, so each was equipped with heavy-duty ion drives and repulsorlift engines. Note that The New Essential Guide to Vehicles and Vessels indicates that the name Lucrehulk-class refers to the entire LH-3210 freighter. (X2, NEGV)

Lucrenn
this planet is located in Skine Sector. (GG11)

(OE, PG3)

Lu'daal-ud
this Gand Findsman was wanted by the Alliance for the capture of Patel Odfath.

Ludlo Lebauer
this hulking Jenet was the owner and Administrator of the Pearl Island Casino on Pavo Prime, during the early years of the New Republic. He was known for his love of rare and unusual art, and collected several Alderaanian boasas as payment of a gambling debt from Threkim Horm. When he learned that Horm had used other boasas to pay off other debts, Lebauer spent a small fortune obtaining the complete set of ten boasas, and built a wondrous display area in the Pearl Island Casino to keep them. Shortly after the Battle of Endor, Ludlo began negotiating with the New Republic on an exclusive salvage contract, pitting himself against the forces of the Invisible Shell. The Republic began to take Ludlo's offer seriously, when the New Republic Intelligence agency believed he was the party responsible for selling rare artworks to the Empire, unaware that it was the Squibs Sligh, Emala, and Grees working through the Invisible Shell to sell the art. When the Republic refused to give exclusive rights to any one organization, Lebauer tried to obtain the salvage contract by offering the ten boasas to Leia Organa Solo in return. Leia would not agree to such a deal, much to Ludlo's consternation. She did, however, learn of Ludlo's plans to take control of the Invisible Shell from his uncle, Lorimar Lebauer, and offered him Lorimar's release from prison in exchange for the boasas and the Second Mistake. Despite his hatred of Lorimar, Ludlo realized that he couldn't turn the deal down without exposing his own plans for the Invisible Shell. He agreed, but then tried to have Leia, Han, and the Squibs killed before they could leave Pavo Prime. His plan backfired, and Ludlo was forced to accede to Leia's plans when she threatened to expose his treachery to Lorimar. He turned over the ten boasas and the Second Mistake, then revealed that the information on the MS-19 was bogus. (SWI67)

Ludo Kressh
this ancient Sith magician was Naga Sadow's contemporary rival for the position of Dark Lord of the Sith. It was Kressh who was chosen to lead Marka Ragnos' funeral procession. Kressh's faction believed in maintaining the status quo within the Sith Empire, rather than attempting to expand it, as Naga Sadow thought. Their opposing viewpoints led to a skirmish at Ragnos' funeral. The ghost of Markos Ragnos foretold of the impending downfall of the Sith Empire, should the two continue to struggle. Neither heeded the former Dark Lord's words, and a civil war erupted within the Sith Empire. Ludo Kressh believed that Jori and Gav Daragon were advanced scouts for an Old Republic war force coming to eradicate the Sith, a position which gathers some support among the Sith lords. As Sadow took control of the Empire, Kressh rallied his supporters in an attempt to overthrow Sadow. They fled to Ziost to plan their attack. A timely discovery of the treachery with which Sadow took control of the Empire led to further support, until Kressh was ready to launch an attack on Sadow's base on Khar Delba. However, Naga Sadow's real base of power was on Khar Shian, and Ludo Kressh's forces were drawn into a battle against an undefeatable foe. Kressh was believed to have been killed over Khar Delba, where Naga Sadow's fleet destroyed Kressh's forces. However, he managed to survive, and returned to the Sith Empire to take over as Dark Lord. Sadow would have none of this, and began his own assault on Coruscant. The inner strife between the rivals grew until it erupted into the Great Hyperspace War. Kressh and Sadow drew their starfleets into the Sith Empire and fought valiantly against each other. In the end, though, Sadow was able to use the Dark Side of the Force to coerece one of his own starship captains to ram Kressh's flagship, destroying the ship and killing Kressh in the explosion. (GAS, FOSE)

Ludos
native to the planet Ganlihk, this creature has been trapped and sold as pets for many years. They possess a trilling form of communication which has been said to be soothing to humans and humanoids, and they are naturally bioluminescent. These two traits made it a desireable companion. In the wild, a ludos will feed on fish and fruit in the morning before climbing into the treetops to bask in the sun. These small creatures average about 50 centimeters in diameter, and resemble knobby balls with several thick tentacles studded with suckers. They were known as "backpack companions" to travelers and hikers on Ganlihk, since they enjoyed the companionship of other beings, and their bioluminescense provided the travelers with a way to stay in sight of one another.
