this Lantilian cruiser was owned by the Twi'lek To'iir.
this vicious, Shistavanen bounty hunter was part of the group hired by Emperor Palpatine and Darth Vader to hunt down Sagoro Autem, during the months following the Clone Wars. Severian was able to locate Autem at the same time as the Dug hunter Tartuta, but rather than capturing Autem, the pair fought amongst themselves. Tartuta managed to sever Severian's right hand in their struggle, and Severian was forced to retreat and get medical attention. With his arm bandaged, Severian confronted Autem in the underworld of Coruscant. However, the former Senate Guard was more than a match for the Shistavenan, and eventually stabbed Severian in the chest with a short sword.
this man was the leader of the Ragnar Bounty Hunter Syndicate during the New Order.
this planet was a toxic world of intense volcanic activity and a poisonous, chemical-filled atmosphere. Nevertheless, life emerged on the planet in the form of the Polydroxol species.
this was the designation of Fabritech's automated sensor beacon, developed for use by scouts, farmers, and municipal facilities that required a level of protection from external sources. The SE-Vigilant was designed with a variety of security scanners and alarm systems to warn of any intrusion. These devices were marketed to those individuals and groups who had to secure a large area, where an energy fence or full security force would be cost-prohibitive. When properly positioned, a network of SE-Vigilant beacons could privide almost complete surveillance of an area. The SE-Vigilant consisted of a central pole, on which were mounted the sensor and scanner systems, as well as antennae and alarms.

this aging woman was the matriarch of the Seville clan, known for its criminal empire. Darion herself had a penchant for gladiator droid battles, but often used protocol droids instead of full-sized gladiators. She was nearly killed when one of her warrior droids, a conglomeration known MdZ-BLK, got tired ot the endless battles and attacked her. Her son, Yearo, ionized the droid and saved her.
this pirate first joined a gang at a very young age, and had killed his hundredth man by the time he was fifteen. Yearo was the son of Darion Seville, herself a ruthless matriarch, His cunning and cold-hearted nature led him to form his own gang of pirates, and he was generally regarded as the most blood-thirsty criminals in Rayter Sector during the New Order. He manipulated people extensively, and his own subordinates have become paranoid that their work would not be accepted by Seville. Yearo was a typical "swashbuckler," carrying a gold-plated blaster and an ornate walking stick, and wearing expensive, outlandish clothing. Nine parallel scars slash across his left cheek, although it is unknown how he received the. He once saved his mother from a rogue gladiator droid attack, and had the droid sent to Gorbu the Hutt as a "gift." The droid, MdZX-BLK, eventually killed Gorbu, thereby eliminating one of Seville's rivals. Seville was contracted by the Farool Brothers to kidnap Crying Dawn Singer and his entourage, which they did successfully.

this reptile, prized for its leathery hide, was native to the planet Tatooine.
this female Chiss was born on the planet Csilla, and was one of the few members of her race to exhibit a sensitivity to the Force. Although she was a skilled tactician, many attributed her remarkable abilities on the battlefield to her connection to the Force, although she preferred to demonstrate her skills without resorting to any mystical powers. She was known for her demanding attitude and almost casual brutality. During her eraly military training, a professor challenged her to make a competent battle force from a group of untrainable Yresilini. She chose one individual to serve as her "General", teaching only the most basic commands. When the "General" and the other Yresilini laughed at her methods, she killed the "General" and chose a second. From that point forward, the Yresilini obeyed her every command. During the last years of the Old Republic, she came under the scrutiny of Count Dooku. She was trained in the ways of the Dark Side of the Force, and became one of the leaders in the military of the Confederacy of Independent Systems. She participated in the Battle of Geonosis before being given command of a group of Decimator tanks on Sarapin, where she managed to defeat the forces of the Old Republic. Sev'ranace Tann was then sent to Krant, where she was captured by Echuu Shen-Jon. She made the fatal mistake of underestimating his fury, for his own Padawan, Stam Reath, had been killed by Tann on Geonosis. Shen-Jon took revenge for Reath's death, and executed Tann without remorse.
this Elom term describes their underground burrows.

this man served the Alliance as a General in the armed forces, during the years leading up to the Battle of Yavin. Sewell grew up on the streets of a backwater world, fighting his way to freedom while maintaining his humanity. He was nearly killed in a street fight, left for dead and bleeding from external as well as internal injuries. After being rescued by a sanitation crew, Roons plotted to avenge his injuries by luring his tormentors in a spike-filled trap. He felt to qualms about killing the street gang in cold blood, because they would have done the same to him eventually. However, he found himself crying in shame for what he had done. Roons fell in love with an actress named Masla while performing with a theater troupe, but their relationship was short-lived. When Imperial agents tried to shut down the troupe on the grounds of seditious performances, Roons lashed out and tried to throw a chair at the commander. The stormtroopers accompanying him began to fire, and Masla was shot and killed. Roons himself barely escaped, then set out to exact his revenge on the Empire. He fpund a rebel cell, and managed to infiltrate the ranks of the Empire by stealing the uniform of Masla's father and impersonating an officer. After killing an entire squadron of stormtroopers and stealing several Imperial shuttles, Roons and his rebels found the Alliance during the early days of the Galactic Civil War. Roons was the leader of the team which extracted Jan Dodonna and his wife from Imperial service, but found that Dodonna had a greater knowledge of war than he did. When Mon Mothma ordered Dodonna to begin his service to the Alliance by serving under General Sewell, both men found an opportunity to grow, despite the fact that they were polar opposites. Sewell wanted to act, while Dodonna worried about logistics. Together they established the Massassi Base on Yavin 4, with Dodonna focusing on tactics and Sewell on combat. Then, during a raid on an Imperial supply depot, their transport was pursued by Imperial fighters. Roons took a Y-Wing and set out to draw the Imperials way from the transport. Roons was shot down and killed, but Dodonna and the transport returned to Yavin 4 unharmed. Dodonna's eulogy of Roons Sewell went down as one of the most stirring speeches of the fledgling Alliance.
the Imperial Moff in charge of the Joralla System during the height of the Galactic Civil War.
this planet, covered with thick jungles, was the homeworld of the Seylott race.
this race of humanoids was native to the jungles of the planet Seylott. By the time of the Clone Wars, Seylott civilization was in steep decline. Many of the natives had lost much of their sentience, and were reduced to a primitive society. The Seylotts were known to be extremely sensitive to the Force, but most modern Seylotts had little control over it. Priests and shamans could control the Force, however, with passing skill. These large beings had pot-bellies supported by short, stout legs. Their long arms were strong and muscular, and their large hands were used to gripping tree limbs. Seylotts lacked an upright neck, and their wide-nosed faces seemed to hang from their shoulders.
this ancient cult of assassins was based on the planet Recopia. Distinguished by their red cloaks and white masks, the Seyugi Dervishes were attuned to the Force, just enough to enhance their combat skills and help them locate and capture their prey. The Seyugi eschewed any formal training in the Force, preferring to use it to discover new and deadlier ways to kill sentinents. They hired out their services to the wealthiest of the Core Worlds' inhabitants, and the appearance of their red robes drove a spike of fear into the hearts of millions. They spread throughout the Core for several decades before the Jedi Knights intervened. In a swift move, the Jedi eliminated all but the Seyugi base on Recopia, which remained hidden beneath the main fortress on Mallif Cove. Hidden in its lower levels, a cave held several hibernation chambers containing Seyugi disciples, frozen in carbonite and waiting to be reanimated.
this young Jedi Knight was one of those who trained under Luke Skywalker at the Jedi praxeum on Yavin 4, shortly before the Yuuzhan Vong invaded the galaxy. When the Yuuzhan Vong claimed they would halt their invasion if the New Republic turned over all the Jedi, Seyyerin Itoklo was one of the first to stand against the Yuuzhan Vong in defending a planet. Itoklo was killed while protecting the planet.

this droid programming developer was nationalized by the Empire and added to the Imperial Droid Corporation.
a plant whose beautiful blossoms were often consumed.
the wing assembly of an X-wing. The wings are connected diagonally, and when the S-foil is moved into attack position, the opposing wings spread apart. On an X-Wing, this results in the characteristic X-shaped wing pattern. On a B-Wing, it brings the wings upward to form the well-known cross-shape wing pattern. The name S-foil is a shortened term for Strike Foil, the original name used to describe these wings by Incom Industries.

this blaster carbine was produced during the last years of the Old Republic, and was used by specialized troops of the Grand Army of the Republic.
this was the model number of a smoke generator produced for use in theatrical productions by GFBS. It also found use among paramilitary groups, for it helped provide cover during infiltration actions.
this was the model number of Pacnorval Defense Systems' sonic rifle. Like the SD-77 sonic pistol, the SG-82 fired a wide pattern of high-intensity sound waves which could shatter solid objects or stun a living being into submission.
this was one of two Yuuzhan Vong creatures, along with Tu-Scart, dispatched to Duro to destroy the refugee settlements established by the New Republic. Known as a male Beater, Sgauru resembled a segmented, hard-shelled creature with a white head that was dotted with black eyes. Around the creature's mouth were dozens of fleshy tendrils that drew bits of debris into its mouth. It was Sgauru that destroyed the buildings and warehouses on many worlds of the New Republic, with Tu-Scart following behind to consume the rubble. After years of conquest, the Yuuzhan Vong brought Sgauru and Tu-Scart to Coruscant, following the planet's reformation into a new version of Yuuzhan'tar. On Coruscant, the pair was put to work in destroying as much of the duracrete and transparisteel as they could, thereby helping the World Brain to complete its worldshaping activities. Some five years after the invasion began, Sgauru and Tu-Scart were ordered to play a more offensive role, when they were dispatched by Supreme Overlord Shimrra to attack the Galactic Alliance infiltration force that landed on Coruscant. Note that the Wizards of the Coast website claims that Sgauru is the Biter. Also note that The Unifying Force indicates that Sgauru was female.

this MD5 general practioner droid was taken from Jabba the Hutt's palace by Dengar, following the crimelord's death near the Pit of Carkoon. Dengar needed the droid's services, along with those of its companion, 1e-XE, in order to tend to the ravaged body of Boba Fett. Dengar had discovered the other bounty hunter shortly after Fett destroyed the Sarlacc and emerged from its belly. SH?1-B was not above giving its patients a piece of its mind, but it was also easily quelled into submission. When the bounty hunters fled Tatooine, SH?1-B and 1e-XE were left behind.
this Czerka Arms slugthrowing pistol was a favorite of Alliance Special Forces agents, because it could be easily silenced and used whenever ranged weapons weren't available.

this female Kel Dor, the neice of Plo Koon, apprenticed under the Jedi Master Saldith during the years leading up to the Battle of Naboo. During the Stark Hyperspace War, Sha Koon received a telepathic message from Plo Koon, asking for assistance in fighting back against the forces of the Stark Commercial Combine on Troiken.
this immense, humanoid deity was the primary god worshipped by the Seylotts.
this unusual creature roamed the plains of Naboo in great herds. They were quadripedal mammals, although their bodies were quite immense when compared to their short, spindly legs. They were physically weak, barely able to keep themselves upright. This made them poor choices for pack animals by either the Naboo or the Gungans. They had flexible snouts that were used to nibble grass and other plants, and the flesh of the shaak was considered to be a delicacy by both the Naboo and the Gungans because it took little preparation to bring out its taste. The fatty ambergris was also used, as a base for perfumes. Their huge body and short legs keep them out of the swamps, where they are helpless to escape. Luckily, their fat bodies allowed them to float, and even a fall over a waterfall caused little real damage. Females of the species were continually pregnant, and their compartmentalized uterine system allowed them to be impregnated by different males at the same time.
(GF, SON, WSW)
this was a low range of rocky outcroppings, located south the city of Theed on the planet Naboo. It was here that the Gungan Grand Army made its stand against the battle droids of the Trade Federation, during the Battle of Naboo.
a member of the Togruta race, Shaak Ti was a noted Jedi Master who was active during the years leading up to the Clone Wars. She was best-known for her independent spirit, which ran contrary to her Togruta upbringing. After attaining the rank of Jedi Master, Shaak Ti trained two Padawan learners on her homeworld of Shili, but both were killed by criminals shortly after the completion of the training. This led to many beings within the Jedi Order wondering whether she was acting as an instrument of the Force. Shaak Ti chose to work alone, despite the wishes and assistance of her fellow Masters. Shaak Ti was one of the many Jedi Masters who were dispatched to Geonosis, along with Mace Windu, in an effort to rescue Obi-Wan Kenobi from the Separatists. Shortly afterward, Master Ti was assigned to the team that was dispatched to liberate the planet Brentaal from Separatist control. The mission forced Master Ti to confront the criminal known as Lyshaa, who had killed one of her former students, Fe Sun. Master Ti refused to be goaded by Lyshaa, and allowed the Zeltron to help her infiltrate Shogar Tok's chambers. Shaak Ti wasn't prepared for treachery from Lyshaa, however, and was shot by the Zeltron before she could arrest Shogar Tok. As Lyshaa tried to gain Tok's favor, neither party was aware that Master Ti was still alive. She slowed her metabolism down while focusing the Force to heal her injury. As the rest of the team completed their missions to disable the fortress' defenses, Master Ti revived herself and confronted Shogar Tok. In a brief struggle, she was forced to kill him with her lightsaber. Lyshaa tried to escape, but was killed in a lightstorm chamber protecting Tok's office. With Brentaal freed from Separatist control, Master Ti was rescued and placed in a bacta tank to heal. Her recovery came just before the end of the Clone Wars, and she was assigned to the detail that kept a watchful eye on Chancellor Palpatine. When General Grievous launched his final attack on Coruscant, Shaak Ti and her team rushed to the Chancellor's side. His stubborn nature frustrated the Jedi, and it was Shaak Ti herself who had to tackle Palpatine to the ground in order to protect him from fire. Unfortunately, Shaak Ti and her companions - Jedi Master Roron Corobb and Foul Moudama - were both killed in combat by Grievous. Palpatine was captured, and Shaak Ti was spared, but only so that she could report on her failure - and Grievous' strength - to the Jedi Council. In the wake of the First Battle of Coruscant, Master Ti remained on Coruscant. However, when Darth Sidious revealed his true nature and killed Mace Windu, he sent Anakin Skywalker to eliminate any resistance in the Jedi Temple. The young traitor found Master Ti first, alone in her rooms, and killed her before she could defend herself.

this was a immature shaak.
this blue-skinned Twi'lek served as an aide to Count Dooku during the height of the Clone Wars.
this was the name of a noted Shistavanen individual.
this young human female (about fifteen years of age) was a dancer in a Mos Eisley club frequented by Imperial soldiers. She often performed provocative dances, a sharp contrast to her innocent nature. She was simply working to support her family's moisture farm. The Imperials wanted to have their way with her, but she fled to her family's farm. There, the Imperials killed her brother Kamma as she escaped again, this time fleeing into the southern desert. There, after a shot from her punch gun, Shaara knocked the Imperials into the Pit of Carkoon. Unfortunately, Shaara's speeder was disabled, and she, too, fell into the pit. All but one of the Imperials and Shaara herself were swallowed quickly. The remaining Imperial uncharacteristically saved Shaara from one of the Sarlacc's tentacles, and was captured himself. The Sarlacc then grabbed her, but instead of dragging her into its maw, it flung her out of the pit. It may have been because she was still dressed in her metallic dancer's outfit, or it may have been that the Sarlacc knew she was in trouble and helped her. No one will ever know.
this man was one of the many Sith apprentices who were training at the academy on Korriban, during the height of the Great Sith War. After hearing the stories of Ajunta Pall's sword from Galon Lor, Shaardan set out to locate it in Ajunta Pall's tomb. However, he arrived too late, and decided to ambush the students who emerged with the sword. Unknown to Shaardan, the students were actually Jedi Knights in disguise. He demanded that the sword of Ajunta Pall be turned over to him, and became angry when they refused. He decided to fight them for it, but was killed in the brief struggle.
this immense beast lived in a series of caves and warrens, below the surface of the planet Roon.
this Alliance operative helped Luke Skywalker and Leia Organa capture the prototype Imperial warship, the Staraker, from the Empire's facility on Foundry, shortly after the Battle of Yavin. During the mission, Mici saved Leia from being killed by Imperial stormtroopers when Leia was grazed by a blaster bolt and injured. Mici herself was badly injured when the Staraker re-directed to Alashan, when the planet itself shot down the warhsip. Mici tried to repair what she could, but a control panel exploded and Mici was smashed into a bulkhead. She survived, aided by medical care from Luke and Leia, but she was unable to protect herself from the might of the planet itself. A huge storm of boulders and energy were sent to bombard the Staraker, and Mici was placed into a form of bio-stasis to help her survive.

this man served the Empire as a Commander in the armed forces, during the years following the Battle of Yavin. He was placed in charge of negotiating with Nescan Tal'yo for a holocube that contained information on the locations of several Alliance bases. Shad and his detachment were waylayed by the seductive wares of the Quetzal Sisters, who were actually undercover agents working for Orma Hundeen. While the Imperials were wined and dined, Leia Organa managed to destroy the holocube, ensuring that its contents were never discovered. Commander Shad was forced to admit to General Khorak that the holocube was gone, but told a story about ten or twelve well-armed, male rebels getting the jump on them and stealing the holocube.
this is the capital city of the planet Melinz.
this shockball team, based in the city of Shad on Melinz, was a five-time champion of the Royal Imperial Shockball League during the last years of the New Order.

this planet was destroyed when its sun exploded. The Refugee Relief Movement was called in to help evacuate the people of the planet, especially the children, so that their civilization could endure. Unfortunately, the natives of this planet were unable to adapt to any world on which they were transplanted, and they died out. Note that the adaptation of Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones, written by Patricia Wrede, indicates than Padme' Amidala participated in the evacuation of Shadda-Bi-Boran when she was just eight.
it was rumored that Han Solo saved the natives of the planet Ventooine from this unusual stone, some time prior to the Battle of Yavin. The natives of the planet built a huge statue of Solo, and built an entire religion around his saving of the planet. The Shadeshine allowed the Satab and his minions to see across great distances and within any obstacle, making the Satab virtually omniscient. It also allowed the Satab to speed up the metabolism of a being, aging it many decades in an instant. However, the use of the Shadeshine gave the user incredibly sensitive senses, and external stimuli eventually destroyed the user. The Shadeshine was given to Han Solo for disposal, after Chrysalla and Han Solo defeated the last of the Satabs in combat. Solo dumped it into the engine compartment of the Millennium Falcon, thereby destroying it and freeing the natives of Ventooine.
this is one of the Outer Rim's most popular hotel chains.
this area of the galaxy was located in the Outer Rim.
this swamp-covered planet orbitted just 100 million kilometers from its white star. From space, it appeared to be a dark, cloud-covered ball of dirty green seas and yellow-brown continents. Visitors encounter a densely-forested, swamp-covered planet with an atmosphere that is too foul to breathe. Several small cities sprang up nonetheless, mounted on pylons and pilings to keep the structures out of the swamp. Gondollas and repulsor-powered boats moved people around.

this was the designation of a squadron of TIE Defenders used by the Empire to protect the Bretie production facility, shortly before the Battle of Endor.
this Imperial stormtrooper served as part of the Aurek-Seven unit of the Imperial 501st Legion during the years following the formation of the Imperial Remnant and the signing of a peace treaty between the Empire and the New Republic. Like his companions Grappler, Cloud, and Watchman, Shadow accompanied Chak Fel on the mission to locate the Outbound Flight Project in Chiss space, some three years before the Yuuzhan Vong began their invasion of the galaxy. They took heavy damage when the Vagaari pirates launched their attack, but the unit remained intact throughout the fighting.
this huge, cloaked space station, found in the Core Systems, was a training center for Dark Jedi set up by Brakiss following his departure from Yavin 4. He consolidated Imperial money and discovered exiled Nightsisters to help create the station. Brakiss, at the direction of the Imperial leaders of the time, set a number of self-destruction devices on the station, for use in the event that the students of the Dark Side revolted against their instructors. These devices could also be used to destroy the station, should it come into the hands of the New Republic. Brakiss used the station's cloaking ability to maneuver it into position near Coruscant, in an effort to steal much-needed supplies from Republic transports. Raids were launched from the cloaked station, using the modified assault shuttle employed in the attack on GemDiver Station. The transport ship Moon Dash was a victim of a collision with the cloaked station. The station continued to grow, though, under the watchful eyes of Brakiss and Tamith Kai. When the reborn Emperor Palpatine arrived on the station, Brakiss was honored. They began planning to attack the Jedi Academy on Yavin 4, but Brakiss began to doubt the Emperor's motives when he continually snuffed the young Imperial. At the end of the attack, Brakiss went to confront Palpatine, only to find that the Emperor was really a clever ruse perpetrated by four former Imperial Royal Guards. Brakiss killed all but one of them, who managed to set off the Shadow Academy's self-destruct systems. He escaped before the station exploded, killing Brakiss.
(SA, LO, JUS)
this was the name that was often used to describe the cloned Morgukai warriors who were created by Sora Bulq on Saleucami, during the height of the Clone Wars. The Shadow Army was trained in the ways of Anzati assassins by Rath Kelkko, and was to have been unleashed upon the Jedi to distract them from Count Dooku's attack on Coruscant.
an underground-dwelling creature native to Coruscant, the shadow barnacle was a crustacean that anchored its shell to the foundations of buildings. When the barnacle emerged from its shell, it extended a collection of filaments from its mouth. These filaments were used for breathing. To feed, the barnacle absorbed nutrients through its roots, which were burrowed into the duracrete.
this was the alias used by Han Solo for the Millennium Falcon, shortly after the Battle fo Duro. He used the alias to return to Corellia, where he hoped to buy some time for his wife, Leia, to recover from the injuries she received at Duro. The name referred to the matte-black paint job he had done to the Falcon shortly after the Yuuzhan Vong invaded the galaxy.
this was the term used by Luke Skywalker to describe Kyp Durron's tactic of launching unpropelled proton torpedoes at Yuuzhan Vong targets with the Force. While this took much of the pilot's concentration away from his starfighter and the surrounding battle, the Yuuzhan Vong were unable to accurately target the proton torpedo when it lacked a propellant trail. This allowed the torpedoes to reach a Yuuzhan Vong craft and detonate before a dovin basil could be used to consume it. Those Jedi Knights who flew the newer T-65XJ3 X-Wing starfighter found that they could load one torpedo launcher with modified proton torpedoes, removing the propellant in favor of more explosive material, making even more potent shadow bombs.
Garowyn's state-of-the-art, quantum-armored starship used to transport potential Jedi to the Shadow Academy. When Luke Skywalker and Tenel Ka infiltrated the station, they stole the Shadow Chaser as their escape ship. The New Republic confiscated the ship, but later gave it to Luke for his own use. It was put it to good use at the Jedi praxeum on Yavin 4 as a transport.
this was the term used by the Chiss to describe any child whose existence was kept secret by their family. The existence of a shadow child, who was publicly unacknowledged by their parents, served to ensure that a family could not be wiped out by its enemies. It was a common practice among the Chiss to have one or more shadow children, to preserve a family's position within the Chiss Ascendancy.
this was a predator that was native to the forests of Kashyyyk. Could this be another term for the shadow keeper?
very little was known about this pirate ship, except that her captain had installed a number of countermeasure and stealth systems that rendered it virtually invisible to scanners and sensors.
designed by Umak Leth and Borborygmus Gog for Emperor Palpatine, these attack craft were basically cybernetic starfighters. They were pilotless, for the most part, being controlled by the biologically-maintained brains of dead Imperial fighter pilots. These brains had been twisted through exposure to the Dark Side of the Force, and obey any command to the death. Shadow Droids were produced in the Deep Core during the period when Emperor Palpatine was reborn on Byss. These craft were armed with an ion cannon, a repeating blaster cannon, a pair of laser cannons, missile- and proton torpedo-launching systems, and an electromagnetic pulse cannon. The only problem with the Shadow Droids was that their once-human brains continued to evolve toward a perceived humanity. This meant that the brains would eventually go insane, once they realized that they were forever confined to their ships. In order to counteract this tendency, Leth and his engineers later installed speciallized hardware the removed all traces of humanity from the brain before its installation.

this disease was believed to be confined to the planet Ord Cestus, where it was often fatal if left untreated.
this area of the wroshyr trees surrounding Rwookrrorro was a densely-forested area in which the bridal-veil sucker and mock shyr compete with the rroshm and rkkrrkkrl for dominance. Deep in the Forest was located the Well of the Dead. The term Shadow Forest was also used to describe the second and third levels of the Kashyyyk jungle, and was considered the domain of the webweavers.
this large predator was native to the jungles of the planet Ithor. The shadow hunters were one of the first species that the native Ithorians tried to integrate into their society, and for many generations the shadow hunters were glad to do the bidding of the Ithorians. However, with the establishment of the New Order and the Imperial garrisoning of Ithor, the shadow hunters were hunted by the Imperials. As a race, they became skittish and tense, and some even turned on their Ithorians companions.
this was the name of Del Korrot's personal starship.
this five-limbed creature, known as the kkekkrrg rro to the Wookiees, lived in the lowest depths of the jungle on Kashyyyk, at the fourth level of the biosphere. It was a carnivore, and preferred to hunt for fresh meat rather than scavenge for food. They were not brave or strong enough to attack a large Wookiee, but they had a long history of being a vicious hunter. An individual shadow keeper had three foerlimbs and two rear legs, and move about on all five legs or just the rear legs. Of the three forelimbs, the outer pair were heavily clawed and used for gripping their prey. The inner leg was a bit shorter than the other two but also much stronger, with heavt muscles making it thicker than the other. The claws on all five legs were retractable, and could be used for climbing or hunting. The tongue of this creature was quite abrasive, and could tear the skin off another creature to expose its flesh. The unique, physical design of this creature made them popular among xenobiologists, but no specimen - alive or dead - was ever found for investigation.
(TT, RD, GMR4)
