Nugek
this New Republic Ambassador once gave Anakin Solo a busy bix as a gift. The box had wheels that could be spun, and blocks that could be pushed through shaped holes. (SOL)

Nugtosh
this tall, thin alien presided over the annual Vinta Harvest Classic podrace on Malastare, during the era of the Battle of Naboo. (ETM)

Nuh ghis
this Mandalorian term translated into Basic as 'now'. (KOTOR)

Nui Gneppe
this thin Filordi worked as an archivist for the Naescorcom manufacturing operations on the floating city of Ipsus, on Genarius, during the years leading up to the Battle of Naboo. Nui Gneppe had previously worked as an agent of the Trade Federation, but became bored with his work. After joining Naescorcom, Nui worked specifically in the Line Two section of Ipsus, documenting all aspects of the development of thermal detonators. (LFC)

Nuiri Sector
this area of the galaxy was controlled by the Empire during the Galactic Civil War. (WSV)

Nuiwit
native to Altor 14, and often referred to as Altorian Lizards, these quadrupedal reptiles are somewhat smaller than the Avogwi, and can walk on their hind legs for short periods of time. They have long bodies covered with horny scales, and their eyes protrude from their heads on short stalks. An unusual aspect of their physiology is their tubular tongue, which is prehensile and is tipped by tough conical spikes. While the Avogwi are carnivorous, the Nuiwit are herbivorous. They are also cold-blooded. The Nuiwit are pacifists by nature, and have a highly-structured society. Despite all these differences, scholars believe that the two races descended from a common ancestor. Like the Avogwi, the Nuiwit dislike technology. (GG4)

Nukkels
this was one of the most common Gungan surnames, taking from the father's side of the family. These surnames were not dropped, even after marriage. To the Gungans, it meant "strong warrior". (GCG)

Nuknog
this was the native language of the Nuknog race, consisting of squeals, barks, and gruff noises. A simple alphabet made up the written form of the language. (UANT)

Nuknog
native to the planet Sump, this unusual alien race was easily distinguished by their unusual skull. The top of a Nuknog's head was dominated by a spined frill, while its jaws were set well below and in front of the cranium. Each node of the frill was filled with fat, which was stored for periods when food was scarce. Nearly a millennium before the Battle of Yavin, the nuknog race literally sold their homeworld to a consortium of unscrupulous businessbeings in exchange for jobs, food, and accommodations. What they got were leftover rations, prefabricated barracks, and generations of indentured and unpaid labor. After several centuries, the Old Republic tried to intervene, shutting down the businesses and ordering hundreds of years of back wages to be paid. Eventually, Sump was returned to the Nuknog people, and the Old Republic began a series of relief missions to Sump, bringing food and supplies to help the beleaguered Nuknogs. However, the Nuknogs feared that the Republic was going to be just as unscrupulous as their former masters. Rather than accepting the relief efforts at face value, they simply took the supplies and then blamed the Republic for "stealing the only life they ever had." The Nuknog leaders then demanded food and supplies be delivered for free in perpetuity, a request which the Republic flatly denied. (SWDB, VD2, UANT)

Nul
a small city found on the eastern coast of the Galleros continent of the planet Zelos II. It was renamed in honor of Galleros Nul. (PG2)

Nul
this name was given to female Zabrak, and meant "daughter". (GCG)

Nuladeg, Bern
a member of Klyn Shanga's militia, Bern Nuladeg served with Klyn from the first battle they fought as children. Nuladeg's prowess with the limited fighter craft of the Renatasians had earned him a promotion to flight instructor, and later to Admiral of the flight academy. His family was brutally murdered by a group of off-duty Imperial soldiers during the time when the Empire invaded the Renatasia System, while the Imperial commanding officer dismissed any protest on the pretext that the killings were a prank. The commanding officer was killed in his sleep later on, and rumors claimed that Nuladeg was the killer. He later joined Shanga's militia, serving as the twenty-third member of the twenty-four-man unit that became known as Zero Squadron, and set out to bring the Butcher of Renatasia to justice. He was never without a cigar, especially when flying his ship. After the Renatasians were drawn into Rokur Gepta's plans to kill Lando Calrissian, during the early years of the New Order, Nuladeg tried to steal one of the Wennis's auxiliary craft in order to use it to attack the Millennium Falcon and kill Vuffi Raa. He and Shanga were both thrown in the brig, but they proved that Gepta's soldiers weren't up to snuff. That earned them their freedom to fight against the Renatasians' true enemy, Osuno Whett. However, Nuladeg was killed when he attempted to destroy the Millennium Falcon, but instead interfered with the duel between Gepta and Lando Calrissian. His fighter was shot down, without warning, by the Wennis, and Bern died in the explosion. (LCS)

Nulan VI
this planet was an extremely rebellious world in the Empire, until the Scimitar Assault Wing, known as the White Death, laid seige to it with their TIE bombers. The planet's inhabitants eventually surrendered to the Empire. (ISB)

Null
this forested planet was one of first worlds ally itself with the Confederacy of Independent Systems, during the years leading up to the Clone Wars. Although a planet-wide government had been established, the native peoples preferred to manage themselves on a more local level. Individual tribes existed in small settlements, and justice was often carried out in the form of swift and deadly skirmishes that left no witnesses behind. During his attempt to gain possession of the Station 88 Spaceport for the Separatists, Count Dooku suggested that representatives from Junction 5, Delaluna, Bezim, and Vicondor all meet on Null to negotiate a deal. Lorian Nod, representing Samish Kash, asked the Jedi Knights to investigate the situation on Null, in an effort to keep the Station 88 Spaceport in the hands of the Republic. Over time, Dooku managed to acquire ownership of the entire planet, and it became one of the many targets of the Grand Army of the Republic during the height of the Clone Wars. During the fighting, the Separatist forces hired the bounty hunters of the Crimson Nova chapter of the Bounty Hunter's Guild to kill the Jedi Knights who were leading the Republic's forces. (LOJ, RSF)

Originally a metallurgist named Shas Dovos, he was melded to his unique set of armor after conjuring a Sith spirit. He launched an attack on Iziz during the funeral processor for Queen Amanoa, and managed to steal the remains of the Queen and Freedon Nadd. Warb Null's base was located beneath the ground of Iziz, and he was serving under the still-living King Ommin. When the Jedi Master Arca appealed to Ommin for aid in recovering the remains of Freedon Nadd, Ommin and Warb Null attacked, overpowering Arca and taing him captive. However, in the battle, Warb Null was struck down by Ulic Qel-Droma. (FNU, TOJC)

Nullada
this immense Shell Hutt was the leader of the group which inhabited the artificial world of Circumtore. Nullada was unaware of Gheeta's intricate web designed to ensnare Boba Fett, until the younger Hutt set them in motion. It was Nullada who offered to keep Oph Nar Dinnid safe from reprisal by the Narrant System liege-lords, in return for the information stored in the comm handler's brain. However, Gheeta executed the Lyunesi before any real information could be extracted. This angered Nullada, but not as much as the destruction of the diplomatic complex on Circumtore, which resulted when Boba Fett reacted to Gheeta's plans. However, Gheeta's death at the end of the battle was more than enough to allow the bounty hunters to leave without retaliation. (MA)

Null-burst Projector
this strange weapon was created by the Aing-Tii monks for use on their Sanhedrim starships. The null-burst projector creates a pocket of negative energy which does little physical damage to its target. However, the target's crew is incapacitated for several hours after the blast, during which time the Aing-Tii can board the ship without resistance. (KO)

Null-class ARC Troopers
this was the so-called "black operatives" group of the Grand Army of the Republic, rumored to have been trained as intelligence operatives, but deemed too dangerous to deploy by the Kaminoan cloners who created them. According to rumors, the Null ARC Troopers were trained by Kal Skirata, since he essentially disappeared after training the first squads of ARC troopers and clone commandos. The development of the Null-class ARC Trooper was begun by taking the pure genome of Jango Fett and altering it with specific changes or deletions. Only twelve of these Null ARCs were ever produced, and only six managed to survive the gestation period. The survivors proved to be among the most effective black-ops units in the entire galaxy, but were considered unpredictable, and were feared because of their unswerving loyalty to Skirata. (SWI83, SWI84)

NullComm
this was one of the most cutthroat communications agencies of the New Order. (CCW)

Null-gas
this form of gas was used by paranoid starship owners who wanted to protect their ships from being stolen. In the event of a break-in, these captains had installed anti-intrusion systems. One system could release a charge of null-gas into the life support system, effectively removing all oxygen from the environment and rendering the theives incapacitated or dead. (SS)

Nullifier
this Imperial-class Star Destroyer was placed in command of the fleet which protected the planet Corulag, during the height of the Galactic Civil War. It was commanded by Admiral Nyran at the time. (SWJ12)

Nullifier Diffusion Armor
this specialized piece of technology was a piece of ancient technology, rediscovered by Vallikor En-Vahdi. It was a full suit of armor, including helmet and tactile gloves, which emitted a powerful force field around the wearer. This force field absorbed all forms of energy thrown at it, both from without and within. This meant that the wearer had to use projectile weaponry while the armor was activated, or else all shots fired would be absorbed by the armor before they could hit their target. (WSV)

Nullifier-5
this was one of the many World Devastators that were dispatched to the planet Mon Calamari by the Empire, during the First Battle of Calamari. It was badly damaged in the attack, and crashed into the planet's oceans. The Mon Calamari Council deemed the ship too expensive to salvage, and left it to become an artificial reef that began more than 1,500 meters beneath the surface. The Nullifier-5 sank near the planet's equator, in the area known as the Algae Sward. Several years after sinking, the hulk began to leak toxic waste into the water, and the Council was forced to mount an expedition to eliminate the waste and preserver the Algae Sward. (GORW)

Numa Rar
this Twi'lek female - distinguished by her pale blue skin - and her sister, Alema, joined Luke Skywalker's Jedi praxeum some time before the Yuuzhan Vong invasion of the galaxy. The sisters were briefly trained by Daeshara'cor, and were later part of the Jedi team dispatched to New Plympto. Numa Rar and the planet's leaders agreed to help fund the initial stages of the formation of Luke Skywalker's Great River, in hopes that they could rescue their own refugees. While there, the Rar sisters were instrumental in driving off the Yuuzhan Vong. Unfortunately, the Yuuzhan Vong simply covered the planet with a life-destroying plague. The Rar sisters managed to assist several thousand refugees in escaping, finding passage aboard intersystem ore freighters. After a bounty was placed on the heads of the Jedi by Warmaster Tsavong Lah, Numa and Alema were ambushed while traveling in disguise aboard the Nebula Chaser. Numa was the first of the Jedi to fall to a voxyn, dying aboard the ship while she and Alema tried to escape. (EVR, SBS)

Nuna
this strange, bird-like reptile inhabited the swamps of the planet Naboo. The nuna had a large, round body supported by two strong legs. Its wings or arms were virtually non-existent, and its head bobbed up and down when it walks. Also known as a swamp turkey, the nuna was often served as the main course at Gungan holiday feasts. When confronted in the wild, most nuna would simply turn and flee as fast as they could. If cornered, though, a nuna would lash out with its sharp beak and kick with its legs. Males often showed aggression by inflating the wattles around their necks and hissing. Females gave birth to a litter which was contained in a single, huge egg. Each egg could contain up to ten young, and the mother had to help the young escape from the thick shell upon hatching. The meat of a nuna was considered tasty to the Gungans, but was poisonous to Rodians and Twi'leks. The Gungans developed a sport, known as nuna-ball, that used a live nuna as the ball. The angered nuna puffed itself up, and was carried by each team toward it's opponent's goal. (SW1, SON, WSW, SWI65)

Nuna-ball
this sport originated on the planet Naboo, when Gungans started using a live nuna as a ball. When angered, a nuna would inflate its body ot make itself look bigger. This round nuna was then carried by opposing teams toward their opponent's goal. The sport gained popularity after the Battle of Naboo, and entire leagues were founded on the basis of the sport. (HNN5, SWI65)

Nuna-Ball League
this was the galaxy's first, professional nuna-ball league, established by Lysko Buelia and a group of investors during the years leading up to the Clone Wars. Teams in the league, which started out as a product benchmarking test, were made up entirely of droids. New models of droids were grouped into teams and pitted against each other in matches that mimicked the organic sport that evolved on Naboo. Droid manufacturers liked the format for many reasons, not the least of which was the minimal cost involved in fielding a team, versus the monetary rewards of the sport's popularity. (HNN5)

Nuna's Twins
this Imperial tanker was one of the many ships that made regular supply runs to the Imperial facility on Kalist VI, during the months following the Battle of Yavin. About eight months after the battle, the Nuna's Twins was captured by Alliance agents in the Thila System, as part of a larger plan to ambush the planet's labor colony. The ship was detained only briefly after its capture, just long enough crew the vessel with an Alliance assault team. The Nuna's Twins then completed its journey to Kalist VI, with a group of Alliance starfighters "harrassing" it the entire way. With the communication systems aboard the Nuna's Twins damaged, her "crew" was able to convince the defense forces on Kalist VI of the legitimacy of their story, and they were allowed to land after the rebel fighters were driven off. The "crew" of Alliance agents was by Luke Skywalker, under the alias of Lieutenant Jundland, and they were able to infiltrate the labor colony. (SWEWW)

Astri Oddo, the wife of Nuralee's elected Senator, Bog Divinian, was at the forefront of a relief group that petitioned the Old Republic for assistance. Astro hoped that the passage of the All Planets Relief Fund would help Nuralee's situation. (JQ3, JQ9)

Nuri
this Clawdite shapeshifter made a living on the planet Aargau, during the last decades of the Old Republic, assuming the guise of a helpful Bimm in order to help unknowing individuals recover their fortunes from Aargau's banks. Nuri agreed to help the individuals reach the Undercity, where he assured them that cheaper and less obvious methods of making withdrawals could be found. In this way, Nuri gained the confidence of young Boba Fett just weeks after the Battle of Geonosis. Once Nuri delivered the individual to an access machine, he withdrew his own "small" commission - usually a large percentage of the individual's fortunes - then left them stranded in the Undercity. Boba Fett encountered Nuri again on Xagobah, during the search for Wat Tambor. Fett, now thirteen, and discovered that it was Nuri who helped Tambor escape from prison, and was now helping to guard his fortress of Xagobah. In a brief struggle, Boba Fett managed to disarm Nuri and force him to reveal Tambor's exact location by drugging him with the poison of a xabar fungus. Unfortunately, the xabar had been among those altered by Wat Tambor, and Nuri was immediately rendered rigid and unconscious. All his body functions were reduced to bare minimum levels, and he appeared to be dead. (BF3, BF5)

Nuri Pravada
this blue-skinned woman (a Chiss?) was part of the rebel underground on Elerion, serving under General Orma Hundeen during the height of the Galactic Civil War. She posed as one of the Quetzal Sisters to help Leia Organa recover a valuable holocube on Elerion, shortly after the Battle of Yavin. (T15)

Nuriin-Ar
this Korunnai native of Haruun Kal led a daring mission to Coruscant during the height of the Clone Wars, capturing Senator Meena Tills and several other beings. They were held hostage in exchange for the complete removal of the Old Republic's forces on Haruun Kal. According to Nuriin-Ar's first message, the Republic was to fear his group, since they were able to operate in the very heart of the Republic without being captured. The government of Haruun Kal refused to admit any knowledge of Nuriin-Ar's actions, but acknowledged that it "fully understood" the gang's actions. In order to make a show of good faith, Nuriin-Ar agreed to meet with Jedi Master Kaim, but became incensed when he discovered a strip-cam hidden in Kaim's robes. To make sure the Republic understood his conviction, Nuriin-Ar knocked Master Kaim unconscious and hid an explosive on his body, then pushed the Twi'lek's body back out into the anetchamber. The explosives detonated, destroying Kaim's body and nearly killing the clone commandos who were waiting outside. The terrorist action only hardened the resolve of the clone commanos of Omega Squad, who were able to sweep in an eliminate all of the terrorists, including Nuriin-Ar, before any more hostages could be killed. It was later learned that Senator Tills wasn't the primary target, just a convenient diversion for the possible killing of N'zaet Nir. (SWI81)

Nurm
this Sullustan pilot worked for Event Vistas, and served as the pilot on the auxliary bridge of the Nebula Queen in support of Rostat Manr. When Manr was brainwashed into trying to crash the ship into the planet Coruscant, Nurm managed to stun Rostat, rendering him unconscious and saving the ship. (SOC)

a common name given to Twi'lek males, this name meant "judge". (GCG)

Nuro Tualin

During a short leave from the Squadron, Tualin was captured and brainwashed by agents of Zsinj working on Projects Minefield and Funeral, and programming was implanted into his brain which compelled him to destroy something. That something would be named within a key phrase that would trigger the programming. Just before the Republic responded to the distress call at Jussafet Four, the cook Galey activated Tualin's programming with a short phrase. Tualin was compelled to do everything in his power to destroy the Mon Remonda. He nearly succeeded, blowing a huge hole in the command bridge and killing a number of crewmen. Tualin was killed in combat by Tyria Sarkin. (SOC)

The Nursery was divided into wedges, with the points of each wedge touching the central pond where the dhuryams were growing. Artificial night and day were provided by immense light sources, and the Nursery was stocked with all forms of natural resources. Slaves were assigned to each dhuryam infant, which controlled them in order to execute its own plans for developing the resources in the wedge it controlled. When the time came, the dhuryams which had grown in the Nursery were subjected to the trials of the tizo'pil Yun'tchilat, in which a single individual would emerge as the World Brain that would seed Coruscant. (T)

A number of mining colonies were established by Messert Mines Corporation around the planet during the last century of the Old Republic. Its red atmosphere was discovered by Arnoll Draenell to have brilliant flashes of light sparkling its face, and it was later discovered to be rich in corthel and cortheum. The average day on the planet lasts 19 standard hours, and its year encompasses 300 standard days. (GMK)

The Chiss Expansionary Defense Fleet was also controlled by the Nuruodo. (GMR5)

Nus Whale
this leviathan was native to the oceans of Dorumaa. An average bull whale could swallow a fishing trawler whole, making them extremely dangerous to hunt.

Nute
this was the alias used by one of two Almas Academy Jedi - the other was simply known as Rune - who approached Yara Grugara about doing an interview on the current state of the galaxy, in the wake of the Clone Wars and the formation of the first Galactic Empire. The two Jedi, under visual and audio anonymity, tried to explain who the balance of the Force had been upset by the rise to power of Emperor Palpatine. Nute's position was that the Jedi Order was correct in focusing on protecting the peace and stability of the galaxy, in fighting against the Sith and their use of the Dark Side of the Force. Rune argued that the Jedi were blinded by this position, and should have worked harder to embrace a more complete vision of the Force. When Yara questioned whether or not the Jedi should have taught their students more about the Sith, Rune agreed with this statement. Nute, however, boisterously disagreed and explained that this was an unnecesarrily fatalistic view of the situation, which further raised Rune's emotions. When Nute tried to explain that the Jedi were only concerned with doing was was right, Rune's control broke. He drew on power from the Dark Side of the Force and tried to strangle Nute, and Yara was powerless to intervene. The broadcast ended with Rune screaming at Nute about balance, as Nute struggled to draw a breath. (LFCW)

Nute Gunray
this Neimoidian worked as the Viceroy for the Trade Federation, but was primarily under the command of Darth Sidious. Gunray himself was a minor Viceroy until the Trade Federation Directorate was targeted for assassination by the Nebula Front, during the taxation summit on the planet Eriadu, about a year before the Battle of Naboo. When Gunray and Lott Dod were the only two Neimoidians to survive the assassintation, he was promoted to a position in which he was the commanding Viceroy over the entire Trade Federation. Sidious placed Gunray in charge of blockading the planet Naboo and capturing Queen Amidala if she should try to escape. However, Gunray was unable to control the Queen, and she fled the planet. Darth Sidious then sent Darth Maul to recover her. Meanwhile, Gunray was ordered to invade Naboo and take control of the world, which the Niemoidians did with the help of their vasr droid army. However, Gunray and his comrades were unable to foresee the resourcefulness of Queen Amidala, who returned to the planet and managed to capture Gunray and his assistants during the Battle of Naboo. The Niemoidians were returned to Coruscant to stand trial for their actions. However, through political machination, Gunray was allowed to maintain a modicum of control over the Trade Federation, provided that he dismantle the Federation's droid army. Seeing the opportunity that freedom afforded him, Gunray agreed to the deal. However, in the background, he continued to work toward re-establishing the Trade Federation's protective droids. He later supported the Separatists by throwing the Federation's political and financial strength behind Count Dooku's Separatist movement. He also paid Dooku quite heavily for the services of Jango Fett, in an effort to assassinate Padme' Amidala, as a pre-condition to the deal and as a measure of revenge for the loss of Naboo. The plans for the battle droids were provided to the Geonosians, who turned out huge numbers of the droids in their factories. When the Jedi arrived on Geonosis, and the Battle of Geonosis raged on, Gunray and his subordinates saw another disaster looming in their future. Rather than assist in the war effort, they boarded their starships and fled into space to plan the next phase of the Separatist assault. Gunray himself chose to return to the Neimoidian purse-world of Cato Neimoidia, where he maintained a fortified palace and a fungus farm. He was nearly trapped there, some thirty months after escaping from Geonosis, and was forced to leave behind his wealth in order to survive. Among the things Gunray left behind was his custom-build mechno-chair, which was captured by the Republic before Gunray could destroy it. The technology in the mechno-chair, combined with the information stored in its computer systems, allowed the Republic to finally verify the existence of Darth Sidious, and laid bare much of the Separatists' plans for the upcoming war. Gunray, along with the other leaders of the Confederacy on Independent Systems, were secreted away to Utapau just before the First Battle of Coruscant. After hiding on Utapau under the protection of General Grievous, the Separatists were taken to Mustafar. It was there, after Darth Sidious finally lured Anakin Skywalker to the Darth Side of the Force, that the Separatist leaders met their deaths. Skywalker was dispatched to Mustafar by Sidious himself, with orders to eliminate them. Skywalker was forced to hunt down Gunray, who had fled their hiding place when Skywalker began killing the rest of the Separatist leaders. Gunray tried to plead for his life, but Skywalker simply cut him down in mid-sentence. (SW1, COD, AOTC, AOTCN, NEGC, LEV, IS3)

Nuur, Shaela
this ancient Jedi Knight was once a student of the renowned Jedi Master Ood Bnar. When Master Bnar initiated his life-cycle change, he bequeathed a solari crystal to Shaela, whom he considered to be his most promising student. Unfortunately for the Jedi Order, Shaela disappeared shortly after the Great Hunt, and the solari crystal vanished with her. Shaela had been working with Guun Han Saresh and Duron Qel-Droma, hunting down and destroying the terentateks that had escaped during the Great Sith War. On a mission to eliminate any terentateks that remained on Korriban, their party was fragmented when Guun Han grew jealous of, and angry at, the relationship Shaela had with Duron. Guun Han claimed that their passion placed them all on a path to the Dark Side of the Force, and he left the group and traveled on his own to Kashyyyk. Left alone to complete the mission to Korriban, Shaela and Duron were no match for the terentatek they encountered. Duron was killed first, when the Dark Side energy of the planet clouded his ability to affect the mind of a terentatek. His death left Shaela alone and grieving on the Sith world. She felt herself slipping over to the Dark Side of the Force, blaming Guun Han for Duron's death and hating him for it. Her last words were recorded on a datapad that was later recovered by another group of Jedi Knights, indicating that she set out to kill the terentateks in an act of revenge. She tracked the beast to Naga Sadow's tomb, but was unprepared for the appearance of a second, larger terentatek. She was believed to have been killed by the pair. (KOTOR, T23)

Unknown to Doune, the amulet was simply a gift from one of Vo-Shay's old girlfriends. Vo-Shay actually gave the game to Doune, holding a sabacc but allowing it to pass.
