RIC-920
this RIC-series droid was modified to work as a rickshaw driver in the city of Mos Espa, on Tatooine, some ten years after the Battle of Naboo. RIC-920 operated as part of a group of unlicensed rickshaw operators, and was employed by Anakin Skywalker and Padme' Amidala when they returned to Tatooine shortly before the onset of the Clone Wars. (SWDB)

this Daan youth was the grandson of Gueni, and a member of The Young. (DOD)

Ricaev
this was a common, given name among the Vratix race. (UANT)

Ricaldi System
this Tapani Sector star system was part of the holdings of House Melantha during the New Order. (LOE)

Riccix New Galactic Dictionary
this dictionary attempted to document every known word in the Basic language. (WSV)

Riccix's Revised Basic Holodictionary
this was one of the galaxy's most comprehensive collections of the words in the Basic language. In addition to text descriptions of words, this dictionary also provided holographic images to visually describe something. This dictionary was noted for the fact that its editors refused to use a picture of Jabba the Hutt within the entry for "Hutt", claiming that "everyone in the galaxy uses that same image of Jabba, and we're sick of it." (WOTC)

Rich
this Alliance technician claimed to be Luke Skywalker's biggest fan, in the triumphant turmoil which followed the Battle of Yavin. (VQ)

Rich Strike Hotel
this large hotel tent was located in Roaring Crater, on the planet Tasariq, and catered to those miners who didn't have their own tents. (SWJ15)

RIC-series Droid
this series of Serv-O-Droid labor automata was developed as a unipod unit, propelled by a pair of disc-mounted treads. The RIC-series was roughly humanoid from the waist up, and was given rudimentary programming in order to allow it accomplish its tasks. Note that this automaton is referred to as an ES-PSA droid in the novelization of Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones. (SWDB)

Ri'Dar
a batlike alien, infamous for their mass paranoia. They are native to the planet Dar'Or, and are about a meter tall. Their faces resemble those of bats, but with large red eyes and sloping foreheads. Their arms are actually wings, and have a span of up to three meters. Six fingers mark the primary joint on the arms, and they have six toes on each foot. Downy, brown fur covers their body. The Ri'dar have a communal society built around the inhabitance of the 200-meter-tall waza trees found on Dar'Or. A warren of Ri'dar families lives in a single tree, while a particular section of forest forms a Ri'Dar city. The original Ri'Dar were simply tree-dwelling mammals, and over time their wings evolved into flying apparatus. Young Ri'Dar are the favorite food of the sloth-like indola, and this probably helped accelerate the development of their wings. The Ri'Dar were considered primitive by the Empire, and were of little consideration when Imperial scientists relocated the elix species to Dar'Or. The avians quickly adapted to life on Dar'Or, and also found the Ri'Dar a tasy meal. The Empire then declared Dar'Or an Imperial Species Preservation Zone, not for the Ri'Dar but for the elix. (CPL, GG4)

Riddick, Dren
this man served as the shipping manager at the White Thranta shipping center on Tatooine, during the height of the Galactic Civil War. A former Imperial geneticist, Riddick turned traitor and decided that the best place to hide from the Empire would be somewhere in the Outer Rim. Unfortunately, he was discovered near Mos Eisley by one of the Imperial spies he had worked on during his career. This spy, a human who had been altered to look like a Twi'lek, wasted no time in killing Riddick for his treachery to the Empire. (SWGAL)

Riddle Eight
one of MicroThrust's more efficient computer spikes. (CFG)

Riders of the Maelstrom
this group of humanoid pirates lurked near the Maelstrom, and were under the command of Big Jak Targrim. They had a lucrative operation going, attacking ships that were forced to revert to sublight speeds to pass near the cloud of dust. When Rodin Higron won the planet Oasis - located within the Maelstrom - in a crooked sabacc match, the Riders suddenly found themselves with competition. To make matters worse, Higron's pirates only preyed on Imperial ships, and brought Imperial forces into the area. Targrim made a vow to stop Higron, and created a unusual plan to capture a large starship and crash it into Oasis. When he put the plan into motion, the Riders ended up capturing the Kuari Princess. They managed to lock out any control of the navigational system, and aimed the liner at the planet. Only the timely intervention of Alliance agents saved the Kuari Princess. Most of the Riders escaped. (RM)

Ridil
this man served as a communications officer aboard the Esfandia Long-Range Communications Base, during the height of the Yuuzhan Vong invasion of the galaxy. (FH3)

Riding Bantha
this position of the teras kasi martial artform provided the warrior with a wide stance which provided a solid base from which to move into other positions. (DMSH)

Riding the Mirror
this was the name used by the workers onboard Coruscant'sOrbital Solar Energy Transfer Satellites (OSETS) to describe their tours of duty. (CCW)

Riebold's Foam and Sizzle
a notorious drinking hole located on the planet Reecee, known more for murder, mischief, and mayhem than for its food and drink. Han Solo intercepted Dugo Bagy here to obtain information on Lando's Folly. If you killed a rival inside the tavern, but cleaned up the body and the mess, nobody noticed or cared. (VP)

Rieekan Historical Collection
this collection of historical recordings and artifacts was established by Carlist Rieekan, as a kind of museum dedicated to depicting what life was really like during the New Order and the Galactic Civil War. Much of what the galaxy knew about the planet Hoth and its surrounding system came from the Rieekan Historical Collection, due to General Rieekan's extensive investigation into Hoth's suitability for an Alliance base. (PH)

Rieekan, Carlist
a native of Alderaan, Rieekan was the Rebel General in charge of Echo Base on Hoth, just prior to the Battle of Hoth. He joined the Army of the Republic when he was 17, and returned to Alderaan for active duty. There, he became a secret member of the Alliance, and was assisting with the inspection of the satellite transmitters around Delaya when the Death Star moved into position near Alderaan. He knew that Tarkin had been secretly building the battle station, but felt that any transmission warning Alderaan about it would result in the Empire's knowledge of the security breech. He held off in warning Alderaan, but Tarkin destroyed the planet anyway. This single incident hardened Rieekan's resolve to never hesitate in battle, and to never let the Empire surprise him again. After fleeing Delaya with as many of the Alliance's personnel as possible, Rieekan continued to assist the Alliance as commander of Echo Base on Hoth. It was his foresight and planning that allowed the Alliance to escape from Hoth, once its location was discovered by one of Darth Vader's probe droids. Following the loss of Echo Base, Rieekan continued to assist the Alliance, as well as the New Republic, as a General in the armed forces. After Leia Organa-Solo was chosen as the Republic's Chief of State, Rieekan accepted a promotion to Minister of State. He later became the head of New Republic intelligence before retiring. Unfortunately, Rieekan was called out of retirement during the Yuuzhan Vong invasion of the galaxy, to act as the commander of Coruscant's Planetary Defense Force. (ESB, ESBR, MTS, ISU, POT, TT, SBS)

Riemann, Gayla
a native of the planet Aldraig IV, this woman joined the Alliance shortly after being forced to go into hiding on her homeworld. An artist of some renown, Gayla had studied with some of the Empire's greatest talents during her education. However, she chafed at the snobbish, elitist world in which artists lived during the reign of Emperor Palpatine, and returned to her homeworld to find some peace and joy in her life. She returned to find an Imperial AT-AT production facility in full operation, and a TIE Fighter hull assembly plant under construction. Hating to see what was happening to her homeworld, Gayla began selling her artwork in order to buy weapons for the fledgling underground. She was incarcerated by Governor Talloryn for "agitation," and ordered to paint a series of pictures of the construction of the TIE Fighter hull plant as punishment. However, Gayla gained access to the plant by claiming it was "research" for the pictures, and managed to commit the floorplans of the plant to memory. She later transferred the floorplans to her underground friends, who succeeded in destroying it. The rebels also smuggled Gayla off-planet, fearing that Talloryn would figure out her part in the attack, and she eventually joined the Alliance. She proved to be an excellent starfighter pilot, dedicated to wiping out the Empire , and eventually joined Rogue Squadron. She attributed her skills as a pilot to the fact that she viewed space combat as an artform, and to her hatred of the Empire. (TB, TBSB, WS)

Riesa
this Imperial-class Star Destroyer was part of the Empire's fleet in Tapani Sector, at the height of the New Order, and was assigned to patrol the space around Tallaan. This patrol also included the protection of the Tallaan Shipyards. (LOE)

Riesa System
this Tapani Sector star system was part of the holdings of House Calipsa during the New Order. (LOE)

Riev
this was a common female name given to Sullustan females. It referred to a movement in Sullustan music. (GCG)

Riev
this was a noted musical movement which was popular on the planet Sullust. (GCG)

Riff-Raff
this Gymsnor-3 freighter was rebuilt over a period of years by Korkeal Hai. She had the help of an old computer, which continually nagged Korkeal about the disarray aboard the ship. The 34.1-meter ship was armed with a single heavy blaster cannon, and much of the cargo space was filled with Korkeal's personal cache of spare parts. (GG6)

Rifle Worlds
this section of the Hapes Cluster was settled during the Cluster's industrial period. Much of the Cluster's manufacturing takes place on the worlds of this region. The worlds of the interior regions of the Cluster regarded these planets as second-class worlds, which the settlers deeply resented. The area gets its name from the fact that these worlds once tried to secede from the Cluster in protest of their second-class treatment. (CTD)

Rifle-Ax
this unusual weapon was developed by the Iotrans, although it was used primarily as the ceremonial weapon of the Iotran Guards of Muunilinst. One end of the weapon was a vibro-axe, while the other end contained a blaster pistol. Although considered ceremonial, the rifle-ax was a deadly weapon, and the Iotran Guards were equally adept at using both ends. (GORW)

Riflette
this was the original name of the SoroSuub X-45 sniper rifle, before it was re-classified as a military weapon. (AEG)

Riflor
this planet, the second world in the Riflorii System of the Mid Rim, was the homeworld of the Advozsec race. It had a thick, deep atmosphere which was laden with volcanic ash. The airborne ash diffused the natural light of the three Riflorii suns, causing native species to develop specialize vision. Riflor was geologically unstable, and was constantly being stressed as it orbited through its trinary star system. Additionally, Riflor was orbitted by three moons, adding tidal stress to volcanic activity. The filtered sunlight dropped the average temperature on Riflor despite its proximity to its suns, a situation that forced the Advozsec and other species to live near geothermal rifts. This proved potentially dangerous, since frequent earthquakes cause large amounts of damage. However, the Advozsec found ways to survive for millennia, until the Yuuzhan Vong launched their invasion of the galaxy. The Yuuzhan Vong unleashed a bio-virus that killed the planet's plantlife, starving millions of Advozsec to death. Only those Advozsec who were offworld at the time, as well as the Bomminde fammily of Tejrivozs, managed to survive. (GG12, GMR4)

Riflorii A
this red giant star was the largest of the three stars that formed the center of the Riflorii System, located in the Mid Rim. (GMR4)

Riflorii B
this unstable, yellow star was part of the tiro that formed the center of the Riflorii System, located in the Mid Rim. (GMR4)

Riflorii C
this yellow star was part of the tiro that formed the center of the Riflorii System, located in the Mid Rim. (GMR4)

Riflorii System
this Mid Rim star system orbited a trinary set of stars. (GMR4)

Rift Disaster
this was the name given to the explosions which destroyed all but one of the ancient Kathol launch gates. In the struggle between the ancient Jedi Knights and the Dark Jedi who had enslaved the Kathol, the launch gates were destroyed, ripping the hyperspace continuum in Kathol Sector. The result was twofold: the creation of the Kathol Rift and the entrenchment of Dark Side energy in the Sector. (E)

Rift Mutation
known to the Empire as the Variant, this bacteria was found in the Kathol Rift. The Mutation was known to do one thing: eat. Once it ran out of food, the bacteria would burn out and die. The Q'Maere Research Facility was almost wiped out by the Mutation, until the bacteria ran out of food when the facility did. This killed off the bacteria, and gave the scientists at the facility a chance to begin growing their own crops. However, they knew that another ship traveling through the Rift would bring the bacteria back. Doctor Vin Emil developed a strain of the bacteria known as Variant Alpha, which would live longer if it didn't eat so much. It was released within the facility, where it bred with the natural form of the bacteria and bred the desire to continually eat out of its genetic makeup. (KR)

Rift Skyrail
this elevated commuter shuttle traverses much of the length of the Teyr Rift, a major tourist attraction on the planet Teyr. It connects all the major cities and spaceports with the various visitor centers and resorts near the landmark. (SOL)

Rig, The
this space station was taken over by the Crimson Nova chapter of the Bounty Hunters' Guild during the last decades of the Old Republic. Located in a remote asteroid field within the Stenness Node, The Rig was a needle-shaped vessel that provided the security and anonymity the bounty hunters required. (RSF)

Rigahuerr Publishing Combine
a large publishing conglomerate headquartered on the planet Coruscant. (CSA)

Rigel VII
this high-gravity planet was the homeworld of a race of hulking, fish-like humanoids. (MC48)

Rigelian Iris
this flowering plant was native to Rigel VII, and was noted for the way its seemed to open at the touch of a hand. (YDR)

Rigglen
this being was a noted pirate, working during the early years of the New Republic. (GUN)

Right ID
this is the brand name of Jaso Corporation's dermatoglyphic identification system. It was regarded as the premier form of physical identification in the galaxy. (TA)

Right of Denial
by the laws of the Jedi Order of the Old Republic, any Jedi Knight or Master could invoke the Right of Denial in order to sit out - or protest - any given assignment. The Right of Denial was considered almost unspeakable by the members of the Jedi Order, who had also sworn to uphold peace and justice throughout the galaxy. However, when the Clone Wars broke out across the galaxy, many Jedi chose to invoke the Right of Denial - most notably, the Jedi Knights and Masters of the Almas Academy - in protest of the increasingly military operation of the Jedi Order. The Right of Denial was invoked when a Jedi sent his or her lightsaber back to Coruscant, in protest of their orders. The Right of Denial was not a formal denunciation of the Jedi Order, so any Jedi who invoked it was considered still a member of the Order. However, they were not afforded any rights or privileges normally afforded to members of the Order, and they were officially stripped of any legal authority that came with membership. (LFCW)

Right to Rule
this was one of the main Imperial-class Star Destroyers serving the Imperial Remnant under the command of Grand Admiral Pellaeon, during the early years of the Yuuzhan Vong invasion of the galaxy. It was also one of the oldest ships in the remaining Imperial fleet, and was under the captaincy of Commander Ansween. It was aboard the Right to Rule, during the Imperial defense of Borosk, that Jacen Solo arranged to have known Yuuzhan Vong and Peace Brigade infiltrators stationed. This allowed Jacen and the Imperial to confront their enemies and isolate or eliminate them as necessary. The Right to Rule continued to pursue the Yuuzhan Vong, eventually locating the small force which was dispatched to destroy the New Republic communications base on Esfandia. (FH1, FH3)

Right-handed
this was the Eickarie term for any words which were considered to be the truth. Left-handed words were considered to be lies of falsehoods. (FB)

Rights of Sentience
this set of Old Republic laws governed the rights of any being or race deemed sentient. By law, any being or race deemed sentient was required to be given a full chance to develop itself without outside interference. Such outside interference included slavery and other abuses. (COD)

Rights of Sentience Party
this political faction grew in size and influence during the early years of the New Republic. They believed that the original inhabitants of a given planet, if they were sentient and could make decisions for themselves, should have equal representation in their planetary government. If the original inhabitants were in the majority, then their decision was valid for the entire planet. In some circles, this party was known as the Rights of Sentience League. (POT, COD)

Rignik
this Imperial TIE pilot attempted to intercept Boba Fett when the bounty hunter returned to Tatooine with Han Solo's frozen body. (MTS)

Rigo
this alien bounty hunter was the leader of the gang that cornered Obi-Wan Kenobi and the clone trooper known as Alpha on Riflor, during the height of the Clone Wars. Distinguished by his canine snout and eyes that sat atop short stalks, Rigo was a powerful individual. Obi-Wan and Alpha had just escaped from Asajj Ventress' fortress on Rattatak, and their ship had crashed on Riflor. Rigo chose to kill them, rather than capturing them alive, since it was the safest route to collecting the bounty. Unfortunately, the Jedi and the clone were more than a match for Rigo's gang, especially after Anakin Skywalker and Ki-Adi-Mundi arrived to help the escape. Like his comrades, Rigo was killed in the firefight. (RNML)

Rigora
originally defined by Arvo Norstrag as part of the Rules of the Blade, this form of duel was adhered to by the Phosphura Belt Pirates. There were three basic forms of rigora: just rigora, honor rigora, and oath rigora, and they were only invoked in situations where there was a serious breach of personal honor. A rigora could be fought to unconsciousness or death. (PP, SWJ5)

Rigoran
this planet was the site of an Imperial Production Laboratories installation during the Galactic Civil War. (SL)

Rigorian Bloodmite
an insect native to Rigoran. (SL)

Rigorian Mudeater
a slow-moving creature native to Rigoran. (SL)

Rigovian Technical University
one of the best accredited schools of technical knowledge of the late Old Republic. (RP)

Rigton
this small city, located on the planet Naalol, was the site of the planet's major starport. Rigton attracted all sorts of beings who wanted to escape the rest of daily life, many of whom lived underground in the network of tunnels that led into the nearby mountains. (GMR5)

Rigton Spaceport
this was the primary spaceport on the planet Naalol, located in the city of Rigton during the height of the Galactic Civil War.Much of the spaceport was carved from the natural rocky outcroppings found on Naalol, and no two berths were shaped alike. (WOA36)

Riha Archipelago
one of the primary population centers of Rellarin found on the moon Rellnas Minor. (GG12)

Rihkxyrk Attack Ship
this heavy starfighter was developed for Black Sun by TransGalMeg, during the early years of the New Order. The Rihkxyrk (pronounced "rik-zerk") was noted for its incredibly heavy-duty armor plating, which gave it a huge advantage in combat. This plating added substantially to its weight, but the sluggish nature of the Rihkxyrk was offset by its weaponry. The ship had a long, needle-shaped central fuselage that was supported on either side by two pairs of sloped wings. The wings on each side were connected for stability by a pair thick rods, and a pair of flaps at the rear of the ship gave it maneuverability. (SWGAL)

Rihn Utrila
this Force-sensitive Twi'lek worked with his siblings as assistants to Popara the Hutt, during the early years of the New Order. Popara employed Rihn Utrila to scrutinize visitors and identify any who might be Jedi Knights, or latent Force-sensitives who might try to influence his mind. After Popara's death, Rihn and her sisters, Koya and Dai, went to work for Popara's youngest offspring, Mika. The sisters believed it had been Zonnos - and not Mika - who had killed Popara. They were among the many beings Mika employed to protect the Tempest facility on Varl. Rihn herself was in charge of the bridge crew aboard the vessel, on alert to lift off in case the facility was threatened. (TF)

Riiken
this man served as a Captain in the police force that protected the planet Onderon and its leader, Queen Talia, during the years following the Mandalorian Wars. Captain Riiken was in charge of the force that protected the air defense towers near the primary spaceport, in the city of Iziz. (KOTOR2)

Riileb
this is the homeworld of the Riileb race, located on the fringes of Hutt Space. The planet literally teamed with life, depsite the fact that it was exceptionally hot and humid, with little dry land. Note that Alien Encounters claims the planet was located in the depths of Hutt Space. (SWJ13, AE)

Riileb
a race of tall, gray-skinned bipeds native to the planet Riileb, the Riileb were distinguished by their long, thin limbs and knobby hides. They have four nostrils, two for inhalation and two for exhalation, and a pair of insectoid antennae atop their heads. These antennea were polygraphic remnants from their insectoid ancestors, and could be used to detect the moods and biorhythms of other beings. All males, but only married females, were allowed to grow hair on their heads. They maintained strong clan relationships, with the females being regarded as the leaders, and the Motherclan is the ruling body of Riileb. The leader of the Motherclan is deemed the Holder of the Clan Ring. The Riileb were first encountered by a group of Nimbanese scouts who reported their existence to Velrugha the Hutt. The Riileb resisted every assault Velrugha launched at them, and the Hutts eventually left them alone. (SWJ6, SWJ13, AE)

Riin Raas
this tall, mouse-eared Sullustan was a New Republic Intelligence agent who worked on the planet Kirima. His cover was that of a COMPNOR ISB surveillance agent, sent to monitor the activities of Bren-Jules Rordan and his operation. This cover had been established some two years before the implementation of Project Second Chance. (TSK)

Riina Kwaad
this was the name given to Tahiri Veila by the Yuuzhan Vong Mezhan Kwaad, during her attempt to twist Tahiri's memories and create a living bridge between the Yuuzhan Vong and the Jedi Knights. After Tahiri was rescued by the Anakin Solo from Yavin 4 and given a chance to recover, the personality that was Riina remained deep in her subconscious. It began to reassert itself when Tahiri encountered something that was imbued with the Yuuzhan Vong spirit, such as a pendant of Yun-Yammka she found on Galantos. When this happened, Tahiri was plunged into a deep state of unconsciousness, where Riina took control of her mind and tortured her. After several blackout incidents on the planet Bakura, Jaina Solo discovered that the Riina Kwaad personality inside Tahiri's mind still existed, and was rebelling at the possibility that it might be cast out of Tahiri. The blackouts she was experiencing were Riina's attempts to cast out Tahiri's own personality. Riina would have been fully eliminated if Tahiri hadnít experienced the death of Anakin Solo, which triggered doubts within Tahiri's mind. The Republic's victory at the Battle of Ebaq then reinforced the belief that the Republic was winning the war against the Yuuzhan Vong, and Riina began asserting herself more fully in order to avoid complete extinction. Further investigation into the Tahiri/Riina relationship revealed that it had been Riina, not Tahiri, who created a Force bubble to protect Tahiri from the bomb set on Bakura by Blaine Harris. This pointed to a much deeper melding of the two personalities than was first believed. Within Tahiri's mind, the two personalities struggled for control, before both came to the realization that they had to unite in order to survive: if one were killed, the other would die as well. In the end, the two agreed to meld into a single individual. Tahiri's peace was brief, for asfter she agreed to accompany Nen Yim and the Prophet Yu'shaa to Zonama Sekot, she discovered that the Riina Kwaad personality had ben created from the memories of Nen Yim herself. (EVC, FH1, FH2, FH3, FP)

Riirdo
an pirate cargo ferry group destroyed by the Empire during the Galactic Civil War as it tried to deliver supplies to the Alliance. (TIE)

Riistar's Raiders
this pirate group was a member of the Invid conglomerate, and was the chief rival of the Khuiumin Survivors. (IJ)

Riizolo, Phan
this pirate was the owner and captain of the Booty Full. He had been working for Leonia Tavira, but broke off their relationship and struck out on his own. He used information she had provided to attempt to capture the Glitterstar, but was apprehended by Rogue Squadron. (IJ)

Rijel-12
this planet was one of many worlds that was caught up in the wave of political maneuvering that occurred shortly after the Battle of Naboo. Only through sensitive negotiations was the Old Republic able to keep Rijel-12 from leaving its membership. (TCD)

Rika/Moab
this small corporation produced a number of high-powered weapons for installation on droids and other automata, during the last decades of the Old Republic. (YDR)

Rikap

Rikhous
manufacturers of the Masterline-70 OcTerminal. (VOF)

Rikki
this Codri-Ji was a mere wyrsulf during the height of the New Order, when Mammon Hoole first visited Munto Codru. (EGA)

Rikknit
this multilegged crustacean was native to the hiakk tree canopies of the planet New Plympto. Similar in appearance to a crablike spider, the rikknit was noted for its eggs, which were a vital ingredient in many intoxicants. Individual rikknits create large webs, which trapped the birds and insects that made up the rikknit's diet. During the years leading up to the Battle of Naboo, Supreme Chancellor Finis Valorum tried to make the rikknit a protected species, hoping to stop the flow of ji rikknit and other drugs from New Plympto. When the Old Republic passed legislation that banned the sale of rikknit eggs, the economy of New Plympto wsa thrown into shambles. The Nosaurians believed that they had been promised trade concessions, only to find themselves unable to sell their eggs. Shortly afterward, the Separatists arrived on New Plympto and offered to buy the rikknit eggs, as well as offering the Nosaurians membership in the Confederacy of Independent Systems. (CCW, RIU)

Riklon Tost
this Iotran served as the Captain and commander of the Iotran Guards during the height of the New Order, and was one of the few non-Muuns ever allowed entrance to the membership of the InterGalactic Banking Clan's leadership ranks. His heroics in rescuing San Hill from the Battle of Geonosis, as well as commanding legions of Hailfire droids in combat during the Clone Wars, taught him that military actions were best handled from a distance, preferably from an IBC boardroom. His tenure with the IBC lasted for many decades, as he became the IBC's primary liaison to the Imperial officers who sought to control Muunilinst. Later, he was nomination to sit on the IBC's executive board during the early negotiations with the New Republic, and he maintained this position until the Yuuzhan Vong invaded the galaxy. (GORW)

Riknak
this Weequay thug was a member of Gardulla the Hutt's crime organization, shortly after the Battle of Naboo. A bounty for his capture was taken out by Hurleydo Travels, after they learned that Riknak had been behind the hijacking of several of their tourist speeders and their occupants. Jango Fett later claimed the bounty, during a mission to locate Gardulla the Hutt. (BH)

Rik-tak
this Ranat cab driver worked on Procopia, always looking for the wealthiest customers. Rik-tak was also an operative of the Justice Action Network, who maintained a regular correspondence with the Rodian Kelsek, providing the Rodian with information he garnered from his customers. Shortly before the Battle of Endor, Rik-tak became involved with a group of Alliance agents who had been hired by House Cadriaan to discovered what Vaskel Savill and House Melantha were up to. After the Allaince agents learned of JAN's concurrent plans to destroy the Imperial torpedo sphere at Tallaan, they used the opportunity to discover the location of JAN headquarters. Rik-tak did everything he could to disrupt the actions of the Alliance team, and managed to alert the leasders of the JAN cell on Mrlsst to the impending Alliance assault. Unfortunately for the Justice Action Network, their plans were exposed by the Alliance team. (LOE)

Rikummee
this young Wookiee was the son of King Grakchawwaa, during the years leading up to the Clone Wars. While Grakchawwaa was in negotiations with the Trade Federation, Rikummee was killed in battle by General Grievous. Rikummee's death led his father to declare war on the Trade Federation and side with the Old Republic. (VIS)

Rikyam
this was the name of the feathery, coiled mass of ganglia that served as the "brain" of a Yuuzhan Vong worldship. It was protected by a thick shell, and could only be accessed by a Shaper. Specialized forms of rikyams were used as libraries to house qahsa memory banks. The rikyam served to provide the basic guidance needed to keep the worldship alive, freeing the Shapers to mold the ship into the desired form. This allowed the worldships to become self-contained ecosystems, maintaining the delicate balance of life throughout generations of travel through the intergalactic void. (EVR, FP)

Ril
this small city was located on Bacrana, just south of the Great Plains. (FBS)

Rilba Bronk
this was a noted member of the Rybet civilization. (UANT)

Rilka
this elderly woman and her husband, Gar, lived on the planet Dantooine some 4,000 years before the Battle of Yavin. (KOTOR)

Rill
this species of bristly-furred carnivore was native to the planet Tatooine. (GQRG)

Rill Out
this was a slang term which indicated a being was going to go to sleep, as in "Don't rill out in the middle of a fight!" (LFCW)

Rill, Tamaron
this man was a supporter of the Alliance, and was wanted by the Empire for a number of crimes. After a bounty was placed on his head, Rill was hunted by his own daughter during the height of the Galactic Civil War. (GG10)

Rilla
this woman was one of the original members of the Eleven, the rebel group that formed in the city of Ussa, on Bellassa, after the Empire subjugated the planet shortly after the end of the Clone Wars. (LJ1)

Rillao
a female Firrerreo, she fell in love with Hethrir when he was rising to leadership on Firrerre. They both became noticed by Darth Vader for their Force sensitivity, and both trained under Vader to become Jedi Knights. Her special ability to heal with the Force set her at odds with Vader's ideals. Like Hethrir, Rillao's final challenge was to construct a lightsaber which could only be activated by using the Force to complete certain circuits. When she learned that she was pregnant, she was very happy until she learned that Vader and Hethrir were hoping for a Force-sensitive child to carry on the Dark Lord's evil mission. This angered Rillao, and she broke off her training after seeing her son, Tigris, safely aboard a colony ship. Her actions led her to be cast out of Vader's plans, and when the Empire destroyed Firrerre, she was forced to hide out wherever she could. Hethrir eventually hunted her down, and placed on one of the colony ships as he took Tigris with his as a personal slave. There Rillao remained, unable to do anything, until Princess Leia and Chewie discovered the stranded colony ships while trailing Hethrir. Leia woke Rillao, who grudgingly agreed to help Leia take out Hethrir. When they had succeeded in removing Hethrir's threat from the galaxy, Rillao took Tigris and set out to recover the boy's mind from the punishment is had received under Hethrir's rule. (CS)
