this Imperial scientist and researcher worked in the Imperial Medi-Center's Encephalo-Research Division. Moff Bandor promised him the ability to test his "wave machine" on live sentients, and Hurlothrumb agreed to work for him. The resulting device was known as the Hurlothrumbic Generator, and was put to use by Bandor on Questal.
a device which produces energy waves that cause the human brain to react with varying levels of fear, depending on the strength of the waves. It was designed and developed by Doctor Lorenz Hurlorthrumb, some time after the Battle of Yavin. Moff Bandor helped finance the development, and experimented with the use of the device during the Galactic Civil War on the planet Questal. Bandor modified the generator, adding specific "doomsday programming" to set off ever-increasingly intense waves of fear. Once activated, the generator will eventually develop such powerful waves that it would drive every inhabitant of the planet Questal mad with fear. He was apprehended by a squad of Alliance agents before he could put it to wide-scale use.
this dark-haired, middle-aged man was on Caluula Station when Han Solo and the Millennium Falcon arrived after escaping Selvaris, shortly after the actions of Operation Trinity. Han believed that he recognized Hurn's voice, but could not place his face or remember his name. Hurn explained that he had a face that was familiar to most people, raising some concern from Han's wife, Leia Organa Solo. Later, during the defense of Caluula Station, the Solos encountered a band of warriors dressed like the Mandalorians of the Old Republic, and they came to believe that Hurn was actually Boba Fett. The truth was revealed during the fight to save Caluula Station, when Fett and his fellow soldiers helped the Solos escape to Calamari.

this Arkanian military expert held the rank of Captain in the armed forces that protected the planet Thule, during the final decades of the Old Republic. He seemed to have the ability to withstand the continual onslaught of Dark Side energy, and remained the least tainted of Thule's military officers. He wondered if this clouded his judgement, however, because he regularly questioned his superiors' choices of non-military targets to attack. He was steadfastly loyal, though, and strove to minimize civilian losses whenever possible.
this city was ostensibly the capital of the planet Thule. Located in the center of the city was an ancient Sith temple, which continued to attract devotees for thousands of years following the Great Sith War. Much of the population even spoke a dialect of the ancient Sith language. It was believed that many of the buildings in Thule were older than some other civilizations, having been built to military standards to withstand attack.
this was a Yuuzhan Vong term of contemplation.
a model of Bespin Motors twin-pod cloud car.

located in the undercity of Efavan, on the planet Vorzyd 5, Hu's Emporium was owned by Kitak Hu, and provided all manner of droids and droid gear. Hu also sold a wide variety of sensors and explosive weapons, many of which he personally developed. Of course, these were often of dubious quality.

this Vulanish phrase found its way into the Corellian language, and literally translated into Basic as "the wife in the window." During the last decades of the Old Republic, the phrase took on a less-than-ideal meaning among the Ensterites. Many elderly Ensterites watched as their sons or daughters fell in love with eksters of the opposite sex, and wanted to spent their lives with them. However, rather than forsaking their families to marry the ekster, the sons or daughters would take an enster spouse as their "wife" or "husband." However, the spouse was little more than a token, chosen for social or commerical reasons and serving only as the link to an Ensterite inheritance. The son's or daughter's true love was with the ekster individual, who was ostensibly hired as a gardener or maid so that they could live in the home to be with their lover. In this way, the enster spouse remained home as the "wife in the window," living an empty life. Note that there is an umlaut over the 'o' in fonster.

this man was the director of the Empire's Department of Munitions Resource Development during the height of the Galactic Civil War, and oversaw the construction of several hyperbaride plants across the galaxy.
a large, slug-like alien with short, stubby arms, huge eyes, and a wide mouth. They originated on the planet Varl, but have populated a great number of other worlds including Nal Hutta. They speak their own language, and have the ability to see in visible light as well as ultraviolet light. They often light their palaces with both, turning off the natural lighting to give trespassers a false sense of stealth. Desite the sheer bulk of their flesh, Hutts do not have a skeleton. Instead, an internal mantle helps shape the head and support the arms, while the rest of their body is simply one large, snail-like foot. The skin of a Hutt is incredibly thick, and is covered with a mixture of mucus and oily sweat. This makes the skin able to resist harsh chemicals and even some blaster bolts. Below the epidermis is a thick layer of blubber that helps maintain body temperature and makes it impossible to puncture their skin with a knife. Hutts are also hermaphroditic, often choosing to appear as one sex or the other for the benefit of their audience. Young Hutts spend their first year of life inside a pouch on their mother's belly, and are virtually mindless. They live near their mothers for several decades after birth, returning to their pouches when they are scared or tired. Young Hutts aren't considered accountable until they are well over 100 years old. All Hutts have a given name, which is supported by their clan name and their surname (eg., Jabba Desilijic Tiure). The history of the Hutt race can be traced to the early times before the formation of the Old Republic. They were a strong force even then, dominating large portions of the space surrounding their homeworld. After the discovery of the hyperdrive, the Hutts began expanding their territories, but ran into Xim the Despot. Xim and the Hutts fought several fierce battle near the uninhabited world of Vontor, until the Hutts discovered the Si'Klaata Cluster and the strong, warrior-like races it hid. The Hutts managed to sign the Klatooinans, Niktos, and Vodrans into perpetual servitude, and used many warriors during the Third Battle of Vontor. This was the decisive battle against Xim, and left the Hutts in control of large areas of the galaxy. However, the Hutts could not escape their own greedy nature, and soon began to covet each other's holdings. Interclan wars broke out, and the clans eventually broke off relations with each other. When they realized that this was bad for business, they began exchanging messengers. The Hutts took to killing the messengers if they didn't like the message, but this further impaired business. So, the Hutts made a pact which recognized messengers as sacrosanct. As a race, Hutts do not trust any other races, a trait that stems from an incident in which all prominent Hutts on Nal Hutta were executed by an assassin. During the Yuuzhan Vong invasion of the galaxy, Borga the Hutt tried to negotiate a treaty with the alien invaders, ostensibly offering up one world in Hutt Space in exchange for information on which planets the Yuuzhan Vong would attack next. Borga hoped the Hutts could profit from the information by manipulating the spice trade on certain worlds, but he also provided the information to the New Republic. Thus earned Borga and his fellow Hutts the ire of Nas Choka, who retaliated by swiftly subjugating Nal Hutta and terraforming it to the needs of the Yuuzhan Vong. The surviving Hutt population was forced to flee Nal Hutta, and existed as exiles on remote worlds for the duration of the war.

Hutt Battle Armor
this speciallized form of body armor was designed for use by members of the Hutt race. Each suit was custom-made for an individual Hutt, and protected virtually every inch of the Hutt's body. Tiny microrepulsors imbedded in the armor helped to negate the weight of the plating, allowing the Hutt to move about almost unhindered by the battle armor. Often these suits were equipped with a chest-mounted vocabulator, which allowed the Hutt to communicate with their opponent - often with taunts and jibes - during battle.
a short-range transport ship used by the Hutt crime lords to shuttle between Nal Hutta and Nar Sahddaa. No two caravels are alike, for each Hutt has tried to outdo his brethren in expressing his individuality. There are varying ranges of luxury in the caravels, depending on the Hutt's financial power. Most are basically transports that can be modestly armed. Most caravels have escape pods for their Hutt owners, but none for the crew.

Hutt Commerical Laws
these are the rules and regulations that govern the various business that Hutts enacted between clans. Among the many laws are several dealing with the appointment and treatment of Hutt counselors. These particular laws are documented in Section C, subsection 12.4.e.
this position was usually given to a non-Hutt, and refers to an individual who has been appointed to conduct business on behalf of a Hutt ruler or his clan. Each counselor must be well-versed in the complexities of Hutt politics and business. Therefore, a counsleor almost always remains with a single family, rather than try to learn about multiple groups. The counselor must also be unswervingly loyal to the Hutt clan it serves, or risk a quick death. The position of Hutt counselor was created in the wake of the violence which erupted between kajidics during the Old Republic, in an effort to maintain the Hutt society instead of wiping it out.
Hutt Criminal Syndicate
this was the unacknowledged name given to the combined criminal organizations maintained by the many Hutt kajidics.

Hutt's Last Laugh, The
located in The Blinders district of the port city of Sahl-Evin, "The Laugh" was the primary watering hole for the workers who built starships on the planet Jenenma. The name of the tavern was based on the fact that a Hutt used to run The Blinders for many years, until it simply pulled up its operations and left. The Hutt's criminal organization remained behind, continuing to operate despite the absence of its leader. Located in the rear portion of The Laugh was a large room, large enough to hold a deep fighting pit. The edges of the pit, which was splattered with blood and gore from a myriad of races, were enclosed by panes of starship windows. These protected the beings who watched the fights staged in the pit, while keeping the combatants inside.

this heavy-set man was one of the Outer Rim's most successful and notorious smugglers, during the years leading up to the Yuuzhan Vong invasion of the galaxy. He had been a part of Talon Karrde's vast information network following the peace treaty signed by the New Republic and the Imperial Remnant, but was let go about three years later when Karrde finally decided to get out of the smuggling business. He didn't like the idea of being cut loose, and confronted Karrde's agent, Mara Jade Skywalker, with a demand for 500,000 credits as severence pay. To emphasize his demands, Huxley brought out a working, Clone Wars-vintage droideka to ensure her cooperation. Despite his confidence, Huxley was unprepared for Mara's use of the Force on Sinker, nor for the appearance of her husband, Luke Skywalker. Ultimately, Huxley found himself lucky to be alive. Mara agreed to provide him with 20,000 credits as payment for his services, and Huxley reluctantly agreed to the deal.

this planet was continually at war with its neighbor, Twith, almost from the beginning of the Old Republic. In what became known as the Hyabb-Twith Campaigns, the ancient Jedi Knights ousted the Nelroni Marauders and freed the planet from their oppression.
this long struggle between the ancient Jedi Knights and the Nelroni Marauders took place more than four millennia before the Battle of Yavin. Despite the obvious benefits it would have brought them, the governments of Hyabb and Twith stayed out of the conflict, ostensibly to avoid retarting their centuries-old feuds. Many Jedi lost their lives over the course of several years, until Arca Jeth discovered the Marauders' base on Voon. The Marauders ambushed the Jedi, but they were no match for the Force. However, only Jeth and a handful of other Jedi survived. Jeth returned to the Hyabb-Twith Corridor with more Jedi, and helped them scatter and eliminate the Nelroni threat.
this ancient hyperspace trade route connected the planet Hyabb and Twith. Control of the route was continually under debate, especially after the Nelroni Marauders begin plundering the planets along the Corridor. The ancient Jedi Knights were called in to subdue the Marauders and restore free travel along the Corridor.
