this industrial city was located on the planet Ord Cestus, some 300 kilometers south of ChikatLik and seventy-five kilometers southeast of the Dashta Mountains. The city itself was built into the crust of the planet by the X'Ting, who burrowed well below the surface to reach an aquifer that could supply them with fresh water. During the decades leading up to the Clone Wars, Clandes was converted to serve as the location of a major communications junction between the largest cities of the planet. The power and connections required to service cities such as ChikatLik - not to mention the secret bunker maintained by the Five Families - meant that Clandes was exposed to intense levels of radiation. This rendered the city uninhabitable, a situation that provided the Five Families with a surprising bonus. Because the city was uninhabited, they did not have to employ the normal safety systems required in a high-radiation area. In this way, the Families maintained their communications and power grids without spending credits on additional shielding. Much of the original cityscape was leveled to make room for the manufacturing facilities of Clandes Industrial.
this was the name given to the immense, city-wide collection of manufacturing facilities that covered the city of Clandes, on the planet Ord Cestus, during the height of the Clone Wars. In addition to the various surface buildings, Clandes Industrial burrowed some twenty-four levels below the surface, with employee facilities buried well beneath the lethal radiation that bombarded the upper levels. These underground levels were carved from an abandoned X'Ting hive, from which the native X'Ting were evacuated or evicted. During the Clone Wars, Clandes Industrial was the primary manufacturing site of the JK-series of security droids. After the Desert Wind terrorist gang was routed from their base by a group of infiltration droids dispatched by Asajj Ventress, they set out to destroy the Clandes Industrial facility, thereby bringing the manufacturing facilities of the Five Families to a crippling halt with a minimum of bloodshed. In the wake of the attack on Clandes Industrial, the major cities found themselves suddenly without power and water, and many inhabitants were forced to horde whatever they could to survive. This placed a great deal of stress on the Five Families, since they had to maintain public safety without jeopardizing their own positions.

this alien race had a 600-year-old feud with the Nhoras race. Five separate generations of Jedi Knights failed to resolve the conflict, and the Empire simply let them be.

this aggressive, thorny vine was native to the planet Kashyyyk, and was considered a nuisance by virtually every other form of life. Claw vines were named for the way in which the leaves of eh plant curled into claw-like forms, and were known to be hindrances to the movements of most creatures, as the leaves caught in fur or ripped flesh when a creature tried to move through them. Claw vines were also somewhat motile, and could move their branches slightly in order to snag their prey. The claw vine was not carnivorous, lacking any sort of mouth or orifice. Instead, the vines fed off the nutrients that were exuded when the bodies of their prey decomposed.
a species of light-colored birds native to Wayland, clawbirds were known as stana to the Myneyrhsi.

this race of near-human beings was noted for its ability to alter its shape, Clawdites were native to the planet Zolan. Descended from the base Zolander stock, Clawdites were polymorphic within the boundaries of their own body mass, but could pass for virtually any other race with the proper concentration on the form. This ability was accidentally triggered when scientists tried to activate dormant skin genes in the Zolanders, in an effort to protect the race from increasing solar radiation. The genetic structure of the Zolander subjects was dramatically altered, and centuries of evolution produced the Clawdite race. Depending on the skill of the individual Clawdite, they might simply change their facial appearance or alter their entire body shape. The ability to alter one's shape allowed the Clawdites to blend into enemy camps, where they could gather intelligence fo commit crimes. Shape-changing took a good deal of patience and practice for the Clawdites, although medical enhancement of their physiology could enhance their abilities. A given appearance couldn't be maintained for very long, and a dead Clawdite always reverted back to its original appearance. Because of their shape-changing ability, Clawdites were ostracized by their Zolander cousins, and there were several periods of civil war marking Zolan's history. The Clawdites petitioned Count Dooku and the Separatists for aid in defeating the Zolanders, but were ignored when the Clone Wars. Broke out. Because of the ability of the Clawdites to alter their appearance, the planet Zolan was blockaded by the Empire, in an effort to prohibit the Clawdites from traveling abroad. After the Battle of Endor, the Clawdites mercilessly attacked the Zolanders, eventually taking control of the planet before the Yuuzhan Vong invaded the galaxy. At this point, the New Republic began recruiting the Clawdites, hoping to use their shape-changing skills to infiltrate the Yuuzhan Vong. Note that Star Wars Insider, issue 70 indicates that radioactive bombardment from outer space triggered the change in the Zolanders, rather than a failed experiment, resulting in the creation of the Clawdite race.

this raptor was native to the planet Prakith, where it hunted small mammals in the mountains and canyons. The plumage of the cliff hawk was mottled with grays and browns, allowing it to blend into the rocky environments in which it hunted. The talons of the cliff hawk were exceptionally sharp and strong, and allowed the avian to hang upside-down while waiting for its prey to wander near. Although it was a powerful flyer, the cliff hawk actually preferred to move about on its two legs while hunting for prey.
this arthropod creature was native to the sandstone outcroppings found on the planet Tatooine. They could grow to lengths of ten meters or more, but the average cliffborer was usually about 4 meters in length. A pair of jointed, vestigial legs provided the cliffborer with a way to defend itself, as well as a way to move through its tunnels.

They inhabit the rocky outcroppings that are sprinkled throughout the desert, subsiding on razor moss and lichens. The tough skin of the cliffborer worm was used to make durable boots, and could also be fashioned into coverings for speeders.
this was the name used by the students of the Imperial Academy on Carida to describe the facilities.

When the trainees were about to graduate, they had to assemble and march from the living halls to the field, in full dress uniform and in precise marching order, while negotiating the walkway. In the history of the Carida Academy, several students fell to their deaths when their troop leaders failed to turn the platoon precisely, and they were literally pushed over the edge by the troops behind them.

The climates were a consolidation of climates from planets which are known for their wondrous ecologies. There was a swamp climate, a rain forest climate, an ocean climate, and a desert climate already up and running when Cojahn was murdered by Black Sun. Each climate was extremely realistic, and participants could expect to get wet, dirty, or sandy, depending on which environments they visited.
