this alien was one of Tatooine's best pod racers, although he invariably lost races to Sebulba. Rimkar's pod racer was unique among the pods, having a bubble shape instead of something more streamlined. This allowed glancing blows from an opponent's pod racer to slide off, rather than cause damage. However, on a preliminary podrace leading up to the Boonta Eve spectacular, Rimkar failed to properly compensate for the demands of Metta Drop, and destroyed his pod. Note that the Star Wars: Episode I Insider's Guide claims Rimkar was killed when Sebulba forced him to crash into the face of a cliff.

this cybernetic implant is created by 'Geneering Corporation, and is the abbreviated form of Response iMprovement Package. The RiMPack is an extensive replacement of the body's nervous system with a fine neural web of reflex threads produced by the Poraskors of Betal. The neural net has a bio-interface which communicates with the recipient's brain. With a RiMPack, the individual's entire sensory system goes into hyperdrive. They receive incredible amounts of sensor data, and the bio-interface allows them to process it at incredible speeds. This intense sensory load often drives the recipient into intense spasms of paranoid irrationality.

It was responsible for protecting the refugees fleeing from Dubrillion to Agamar, and nearly destroyed a Yuuzhan Vong worldship in the battle. The only reason it was at the battle in the first place was because Rimsen had learned that Leia Organa Solo had petitioned Agamar for help when the New Republin turned a blind eye to the Yuuzhan Vong invasion.

this staunch Imperial supporter worked for Darth Vader himself as a sentientologist, collecting information on the galaxy's many intelligent, non-human races. Rin also developed a "universal definition of life" for use in identifying the difference between living and nonliving creatures. While his work helped expand the information known about many unusual races, Rin's intensely pro-human stance led to several incorrect theories about several species. He made a number of harmless species out to be cold-blooded killers, including the Proteans and Ugors. He also made vocal claims that the planet Mon Calamari had first been discovered by Imperial scouts, which contradicted decades of Old Republic history.

Ringed Moon Shadowmoth
this species of moth was native to the planet Coruscant. It was noted for its incredibly beautiful wingsong, a form of music created when the moth beat its wings in the night skies. Shadowmoths were nocturnal, so beings who wanted to hear their song had to wait up for it. What was unusual about the shadowmoth was its silicate-based cocoon. This cocoon was incredibly tough, and was seemingly too strong for the larval shadowmoth to break through. However, each infant moth was equipped with a speciallized beak with which to crack the cocoon. In the struggle to break free, the shadowmoth's own body was strengthened, so that it could survive once it had evolved into a moth. Many beings felt that the cocoon was too strong, and often assisted the shadowmoth in getting free. While the intentions of these individuals were good, the shadowmoth was not forced to break free on its own, an activity which strengthened its wings and developed a stronger body. Because they could not fly, these shadowmoths often died because it was unable to survive.
ringer was a sport popular on the planet Stassia during the Imperial occupation of the planet. Entire tournaments are set up for it, culminating in the week-long Sweepstakes each year. All participants, known as tossers, were required to use the same equipment: small metallic disks which could be thrown through the air. Each contestant stood behind a line, facing an open area filled with rings. Each ring was different: some were held in place, while others swayed on lines or floated on tiny repulsors. The goal for each player was to toss their disk through as many rings as they could, gauging the direction and force of each throw to pass through the maximum number of rings. Among the rings was the Ace Ring, which was worth more points than the others, and could help a tosser quickly gain points. It was difficult at best, though, to put a disk through the Ace.
this planet, the second world in the Ringneldia System, was the manufacturing center of the Centrality. The natives of the planet were known to have developed a measuring system that was based on the sizes of its indigenous legumes.

He maintained a set of long, jet black mustachioes and beard. He chafed at the preceived "lack of respect" he received from Governor Linrec, and was openly defiant about many trivial matters. He plotted with the Mantis Bounty Hunter Syndicate and a minor Imperial official on Revkinn to destroy Linrec's career, hoping to take over Kallistas for himself and reaping the profits from the sales of gemstones and radioactive isotopes. Rinn began importing weapons, with the help of Tarquin Zian, and started stockpiling the isotopes in order to manufacture bombs. After arranging for the capture of Pallas Quintell, and upon hearing of Cressis Linrec's plans to marry Jondrell Inx, Rinn offered a bounty for Inx's capture.

although many beings who first hear of this name come to think of the Rishi Maze as a remote trade route that was located beyond the Outer Rim Territories, in reality the Rishi Maze was a irregular dwarf galaxy that was completely contained within the known galaxy. The Rishi Maze was gravitationally locked in place, and the multitude of stars and planets caused all manner of trouble for hyperspace travel in the area. Thus, the name Rishi Maze came about, because any hyperspace routes through the Maze were incredibly snarled.
