native to the planet Lyran IV, this small slug spent much of its lifecycle feeding on grains and wheat. As it fed, the bloodslug exuded a toxic acid that helped it move through the heavy stores of grains found in silos and warehouses. This alone made the bloodslug a form of vermin that the workers of Lyran IV hated to find in their storage systems. What made the bloodslug even worse was the fact that it desired to feed on blood as much as it did on grain. When the bloodslug found a living host, it used its acid to burrow into the flesh, lodging itself in the host's digestive tract and feeding on blood and vegetable matter consumed by the host. In this way, the bloodslug received two forms of sustenance while keeping its host alive for an extended period. When the host finally died from the loss of blood, the bloodslug simply abandoned the dead body and sought out the nearest source of food. The average bloodslug could live for an indefinite period without living blood, burrowing into the nearest grain stores and waiting. It was discovered that the toxic acid of the bloodslug, when collected in the bloodstream of its host, caused increasingly deep forms of madness and pain, slowly driving the host insane. Because of this, many of the crimelords who controlled Lyran IV used bloodslugs as a way to torture their victims.

The Lyran System was located near both Kessel and Ryloth, giving the criminals a steady supply of illegal forms of spice to traffic to the center of the galaxy.

When Shogar Tok took control of the prison facility and converted it to his base of operations, Lyshaa joined Sagoro Autem in staging a prisoner revolt. Their attempt to gaint heir freedom coincided with the Old Republic's attempt to oust Shohgar Tok from power on Brentaal. With the Republic's forces pinned down, Shaak Ti offered the three their freedom in exchange for helping the Jedi to destroy Tok's hold on Brentaal. They reluctantly agreed, seeing no better path to freedom. Lyshaa reluctantly agreed to pose as a regular Zeltron female, in an effort to lure Shogar Tok into his chambers, where Shaak Ti would capture him. Unfortunately for Master Ti, Lyshaa used the distraction to fire her blaster at the Jedi, badly wounding Shaak Ti. Lyshaa left her for dead, but Shaak Ti was merely in a healing trance. When she awoke, Master Ti defeated Shogar Tok in combat and turned to bring Lyshaa to justice. Lyshaa wanted no part of prison life, and turned to flee.

this Sullustan researcher was at one time employed by SoroSuub, but the circumstances of his leaving were never clear.

He also had created a form of personal holoprojector, a device which allowed the user to alter their appearance via holographic projection. The prototype was tested by Corinna A'Daasha, Doctor Urtell's boss, and worked quite well. However, rumors spread of its existence, and a variety of unsavory suitors tried to obtain the technology.

an alien race, the Lyunesi were one of six sentient species which evolved on the planet Ryoone. A fragile species, the Lyunesi would have been wiped out by their more adaptable competitors if not for their innate ability to translate languages. In the skirmishes and eventual peace negotiations that followed, the rival species employed Lyunesi translators to hammer out the details in an unbiased manner. Those Lyunesi who traveled away from Ryoone were often employed as translators and negotiators, acting as go-betweens for the galaxy's many unusual races. From time to time, Lyunesi fall victim to their own fragility and sensitivity, plunging to hypererotic relationships with other beings. More often than not, the object of the Lyunesi's desire is killed by the intense passion developed in the relationship. This often caused problems for those Lyunesi acting as interpretors for high-ranking officials, whose wives or daughters were sometimes the object of the Lyunesi's passion.
