During a mission to obtain more Wookiees, Nyklas found that his contact's ship was disabled. He ordered Han and his flight of TIE Fighters to take out the ship, but Han discovered that there were Wookiees still alive on board. Nyklas ordered Han to kill the survivors, but Han rebelled against this senseless slaughter. He freed one of the Wookiees, named Chewbacca, and was immediately reprimanded by Nyklas. Han was quickly given a dishonorable discharge and blacklisted as a pilot.
this man was believed to have been one of the many Jedi Knights who roamed the galaxy during the decades leading up to the Clone Wars. A former soldier, Darca served as a mercenary for hire many years before the Battle of Naboo, until he abandoned that role when he met his future wife, Teril. Darca later claimed that Teril's love saved him. They looked forward to becoming parents, but Teril died during childbirth, leaving Darca to raise his son Neas alone. The two men became the best of friends. Then, one day shortly after the Battle of Naboo, a Jedi Knight crashlanded on Nyl's land. The dying Jedi explained that he had been transporting a prisoner to Coruscant, a prisoner known as the Dark Jedi, Lycan. Lycan escaped and tried to gain access to Nyl's home. Young Neas managed to shoot the Dark Jedi in the face, but Lycan killed the boy in retaliation. Darca returned home to find Neas' lifeless body on the floor. Lycan escaped again, and Nyl spent two days burying his son before setting out on a mission of vengeance to hunt down and destroy Lycan. He took the dead Jedi's lightsaber, and assumed the role of a rogue Jedi to give him a measure of respect. On the first world he reached during his search, he thwarted the capture of a young boy who had been implicated in the kidnapping of Samuel's daughter, Leddar. Samuel, the leader of the remote outpost, agreed to drop any charges against Nyl, so long as he helped locate his daughter and bring the kidnappers to justice. In exchange for Darca's help, Samuel agreed to also provide information on the Dark Jedi Lycan, whom Darca had been searching for. Darca managed to locate Royce, who had kidnapped Leddar, and discovered the truth behind Samuel's relationship with Royce. After ensuring that they wouldn't kill each other, Darca left Samuel to contemplate his actions and set out for Molavar, where Royce claimed that Lycan was heading. When his ship was shot down while en route to Molavar, Darca was caught up in the machinations of Jaren and her brother, Ament. After bringing the two fugitives to justice, he finally reached Molavar, where he discovered he was five days behind Lycan. However, Lycan was still on the planet, and Nyl could see the end of his mission. After helping Byrom and Ensa ensure their safety in the desert, Nyl finally confronted Lycan. The larger Dark Jedi beat Darca physically through the Force, causing broken ribs and other internal injuries before Darca could recover enough to make his own attack. As he crawled into a mine, Darca lined the entrance with landmines, an idea he had obtained by Byrom. As Lycan claimed victory, Darca set off the charges, bringing the ceiling of the cave down on Lycan's head and killing him. Upon surviving the encounter, Darca had a vision of Teril and Neas, in which they implored him to never give up his new-found quest to make things right in the galaxy. Darca cdidn't consider himself a Jedi Knight - he'd never felt the Force flowing through him - but he resolved to make things as right as he could in the galaxy.

Rather than causing problems, this event brought them closer together, and their relationship grew deep.

Darca went to investigate, and discovered the dying Jedi, who told Darca that he had been transferring a prisoner to Coruscant. The prisoner, a Dark Jedi named Lycan, had escaped after the crash. As Darca listened to the story, he heard gunfire from his home, and rushed to return to Neas' side.

this Feeorin was known as a pirate who ambushed ships from a secret base on the Naboo System, although the base's location was never discovered. Nym was orphaned on the planet Lok as an infant, and was raised by harsh criminals and pirates. He developed into a fearsome fighter, not because he was overly violent, but because he was swift and effective. Nym was known as a tactical genius as well as a scoundrel, and his piracy of Trade Federation convoys earned him a considerable bounty. When regular channels failed to bring him into custody, the Federation hired Vana Sage to capture Nym. She was able to lure Nym and his crew into a trap when they tried to sell off a load of experimental Scalp-Hunter blasters they obtained from the Trade Federation. Despite her success, Nym's crew soon rescued him from the Federation's control. He returned to Lok to fight the Trade Federation's occupation of his homeworld, but nearly lost everything he owned. Nym piloted his ship, the Havoc, during the Battle of Naboo, helping the Naboo break the Trade Federation's blockade and helping restore trade to the system. A full pardon of his past crimes from Chancellor Palpatine allowed Nym to continue his piracy as well, although he was never monetarily rewarded. He returned to his adopted homeworld of Nym, only to find it still under the control of the Trade Federation. He spent the next few months on Bothan Space, biding his time to return home. Six years after the Battle of Naboo, Nym was hired by the Mere Ambassador Loreli Ro, to help her people overthrow the Trade Federation's control of Maramere. Nym relunctantly agreed to help, but found himself fighting Sol Sixxa's forces as well as the Trade Federation. In the end, though, Nym, convinced Sol Sixxa to join forces with him, and the two set out to destroy the Federation. In the wake of the Battle of Naboo and the Clone Wars, Nym returned to Lok and became the leader of his people. He was considered more cunning and shrewd as he grew older, and was revered by his people during the height of the New Order. It was rumored that he kept several possessions of an old friend, the Jedi Master Adi Gallia, in his hidden retreat on Lok. Nym remained hidden on Lok for many years, as the Empire rose to power and began patrolling the spacelanes. If the price was right, he would sometimes support the actions of the Alliance, although he refused to commit to one side or the other during the Galactic Civil War.
