the small, white dwarf star primary to the Ardos System. Hutt legends say that Ardos was in love with Evona, which was a sister star that made up a binary system. The two lovers had many children, which were the various planets of the system. When Evona was sucked into a black hole along with several planets, Ardos became angry and miserable at the loss of his loved ones. Ardos self-destructed, throwing off a huge radioactive mantle of gas, and reducing itself to a white dwarf. The ejection of radioactive matter destroyed many of the remaining planets, leaving only the Hutt homeworld of Varl. Scientists from the Old Republic and Empire believe that this story is a mere legend, and that the Hutts destroyed much of their system in an ancient civil war.

When they were deep in the bowels of The Rig, the two Jedi revealed their true nature, and freed the various prisoners who had been captured by the bounty hunters. In this way, they were able to create a diversion that helped distract Mika's attention.

this male Mon Calamari served as an Admiral in the naval forces of the Old Republic, during the height of the Clone Wars. Admiral Baraka was in charge of the mission to Vandor-3, about a year after the Battle of Geonosis. A career officer, Admiral Baraka followed in the footsteps of his father and grandfatjer by joining the military. This history gave Baraka a deep understanding of war and military actions, but it also made him wary of the introduction of clone troopers to the Grand Army of the Republic. He no longer had to worry about abnormal behavior among his troops, as each clone was produced to be utterly loyal and follow directions with incredible precision. Deep inside, he also wondered whether he and other military leaders were simply becoming obsolete. When he was ordered to take the Nexu and travel to Ord Cestus, he was angry at having been removed from the main fighting lines of the war. He bristled at the fact that a mission to Ord Cestus would not gain him any attention or promotions, and he vowed to eliminate the Cestian threat as quickly as possible in order to return to the fighting. He believed he was going to strike at the Clandes Industrial complex, but Asajj Ventress had secretly altered the triangulation of the signals. Instead, the targetting system was actually aimed at a densely-populated civilian area. Baraka didn't know this, but was still shocked when ARC trooper A-98 - once known as Nate - ordered the ships to fire on his exact location. Only the seriousness of the request, which would surely kill the ARC trooper, made Baraka change the ship's targetting to aim at Nate's position.

originally part of the ancient Sith Empire, Arkanian was a planet which had a great deal of Dark Side energy. For this reason, it was the world watched over by Jedi Master Arca Jeth during period leading up to the Great Sith War. It was a cool, tundra world known for its huge diamonds. Because of its location in the Colonies region, Arkania was captured by the Yuuzhan Vong during their invasion of the galaxy.

this Arkanian corporation was ostensibly a manufacturer of medical supplies and technologies, but specialized in the advanced development of genetic engineering. Like the Arkanians who founded it, Arkanian Microtechnologies was highly fearful of outsiders, and much of its security system centered on the prohibition - or elimination - of non-Arkanians. This made entering the premises nearly impossible for off-worlders, unless they were provided with specialized security badges. During the early stages of the Clone Wars, Arkanian Microtechnologies struggled to produce a cheaper clone trooper for the Army of the Republic. Their plan did not involve cloning, but a new form of development which remained a corporate secret for many years. Emperor Palpatine took advantage of the new technologies developed as Arkanian Micro, creating Force-sensitive clones from the genetic material of Sa Cuis, in an effort to produce a small army of Dark Jedi. This new technology could produce a useful clone in just over a year.

The coup failed, but the cyborging technology of the Renegades was adopted by the natives of Arkania.
