this collection of low mountains was located near Kibo Lake, on the planet Ord Cestus. They were found just below the Yal-Noy peak in the Dashta Mountains, and benefitted from the snowmelt each spring. This runoff gave the Zantay area an abundant water supply, allowing the settlers there to have some of the greenest lands on all of Ord Cestus. Many of the planet's independent farmers lived in the Zantay area, growing primarily fungus and other hardy plants.

this Veknoid Jedi Master was known for his love of food. He was one of the many Jedi who decided not to work on specific missions for the Jedi Council, but instead traveled the galaxy at the will and whim of the Force. Because of this, Master Zao ended up as the head chef for the Aqualish crimelord Gorto Zaga, shortly after the Battle of Naboo. In this way, Master Zao was on the planet Kiffex when Quinlan Vos and Master Tholme arrived on the planet to investigate the re-awakening of Volfe Karkko. It was Master Zao who convinced Quinlan Vos to let the Force be his guide, and simply move about the galaxy at the command of the Force. During the Clone Wars, Master Zao moved about the Outer Rim, and was believed to have been killed until Master Tholme found him on Saleucami. As the struggle against the Separatists ground on, Master Zao was one of many Jedi who openly questioned the need to continue the war. The Jedi Order, he explained to Tholme, was charged with serving the Force. Zao agreed that the Jedi Order was sworn to uphold the principles of the Old Republic, but feared that the Republic itself no longer held to the old ideals. He continued to use food analogies to describe his position, often questioning Tholme about the state of the galaxy by serving him food and asking about the taste. Depending on Tholme's response, Master Zao would then ask him if the food had changed, or the taster. In this way, Zao questioned whether or not the Jedi Order, the Republic, and the galaxy were changing in fundamental ways.

An outspoken supporter of the Old Republic, Senator Zar maintained residences on Coruscant and Ghorman, as well as his homeworld. When the planet Duro fell to the Separatists, Fang Zar was among the first to support the actions of Corellia in retreating to defend its own borders, despite the public and political outcry at the loss of such a visible member of the Republic. Many believed that it was Zar's personal friendship with Senator Garm Bel Iblis that decided his loyalty, rather than political necessity. Senator Zar later became part of a small group that supported Bail Organa's pettion to ensure Chancellor Palpatine relinquished the unprecedented control he had been given during the Clone Wars. Unfortunately, Fang Zar was among the first Senators to be arrested for their part in the Petition, after Palpatine instituted the New Order and assumed the position of Emperor. Senator Zar was eventually released, but fled to Alderaan where he received political asylum.

He was constantly at odds with Jabba and Jiliac, who supplied him with raw spice for processing. He discovered, after Han Solo was attacked by pirates, that Jabba and Jiliac were waylaying transport ships laden with processed spice.

this was an ancient philosophy of the Force, distinguished from that of the Jedi Knights and the Sith in its training methods and beliefs. The origins of the Zeison Sha can be traced back to the initial stages of the Light and Darkness War, some 2,000 years before the Galactic Civil War. A group of families who were fleeing the conflict between the Jedi and the Sith established a colony on Yanibar. Many of the members of these families had ties to the Jedi Order - more than a few were also quite sensitive to the Force - and so they fled into the Outer Rim to avoid becoming the targets of Sith attacks. A group of Jedi accompanied the families to Yanibar, but was later killed in battle, leaving the families stranded. News of their deaths never reached the families, because their flight had been kept secret. So, the families took this to mean that the Jedi Order had abandoned them, and they set out to commune with the Force in other ways. Surviving the harsh environment of Yanibar gave the Zeison Sha a strong will to survive, and they tapped into the Force to assist in ensuring the survival of the colony. Over the centuries, the Zeison Sha philosophy coalesced around the ideals of self-reliance and independence. Among the skills of the Zeison Sha were weapons skills designed for defense and for acquiring food. One of the most distinctive weapons of the Zeison Sha was the discblade, a weapon that could be thrown at a creature and would return to its thrower. The return was partly due to the discblade's shape, and partly to the Zeison Sha's own telekinetic skills. There were several times in the history of the Zeison Sha that the struggle for independence and self-sufficiency led an individual to become selfish, and many Zeison Sha were lost to the Dark Side of the Force. After the Battle of Ruusan, a passing trader discovered the colony on Yanibar, and the Zeison Sha decided to revisit their former ties to the Jedi Order. When the Jedi began taking their children - often without permission - for training as Padawans, the Zeison Sha again chose to reject the ways of the Jedi and returned to Yanibar. This self-imposed isolation allowed the Zeison Sha to survive the Jedi Purge.

Peckhum had taken Zekk in and cared for him, seeing Zekk's natural independence as a mirror of his own youth. The two finally stopped on Coruscant. There, he found refuge in the cityworld's subterranean environs. Later, he was befriended by Jaina and Jacen Solo. He is a wiry youth with black hair and striking green eyes. It was Tamith Kai, scouring the underground levels of Coruscant, who discovered that Zekk had a large amount of Force sensitivity. He was brought to the Shadow Academy for training, and was taken under Brakiss's wing. Zekk's power grew swiftly, and so did the rivaly between he and Vilas, Tamith Kai's apprentice. The two were pitted against each other in a battle to the death for the position of Darkest Knight. Both Tamith Kai and Brakiss believed that the rivalry between the two would divide the Academy. In the battle, Zekk managed to dispatch Vilas. This victory made Zekk the Darkest Knight of the Shadow Academy, a positioon bestowed upon him by Brakiss,much to Tamith Kai's dismay. As the Darkest Knight, Zekk was given command of the assault team sent to Kashyyyk to steal starship components for the Second Imperium's own ships. They infiltrated the planet holo-disguised as Wookiees, and successfully obtained a large amount of starship shielding and navigational equipment. When he suddenly found that his Imperial masters were defeated, Zekk tried to return to the Light Side of the Force, but found himself unable to concentrate and accomplish his goals. He fled Yavin 4 and returned to Ennth, only to discover the planet in the throes of is worse devastation in recent record. He helped evacuate as many people as he could, but he still felt out of place. After the evacuation, he let himself drift through the Force, and decided to become a bounty hunter. He accepted the challenge of capturing Bornan Thul, hoping to use the little control he had of the Force to track him down before anyone could harm him. Like many others, he failed to find the Alderaanian, but was welcomed back into the fold of friends on Yavin 4. He later helped Raynar Thul search out Bornan, and rejoined the Jedi Academy. He continually worked to avoid the Dark Side, and actually used the Force to win the 93rd annual Blockade Runners Derby. After attaining the rank of Jedi Knight, Zekk was one of many individuals who were forced into battle against the Yuuzhan Vong. During the final stages of the battle against the Yuuzhan Vong, after the living planet Zonama Sekot agreed to help bring about an end to the conflict, Zekk was one of several Jedi Knights were bonded to seed-partners and provided with Sekotan starships. Five years later, when UnuThul sent out his call for help, Zekk was among seven young Jedi who dropped whatever mission they were currently on and traveled to the Unknown Regions to answer the call. However, he questioned the Jedi's continued involvement with the Colony, since he was unable to fully comprehend if the conflict between the Kind and the Chiss was actually upsetting the balance of the Force. Because of his joining with the Unu hive, Zekk found himself suddenly sharing emotions with Jaina Solo, and the pair realized that there was a deep level of attraction between them. Although nothing came of their pairing following the Dance of Union, they discovered that their relationship had been moved to a much deeper level than ever before.

this near-human was known as Patches to the agents of the Corellian Security Force, for his pinkish colored skin was covered with blue splotches of color. He had red eyes with black, diamond-shaped pupils, pointed ears, and pointed, black teeth. Zekka Thyne was imprisoned at Kessel by Corran Horn and his father, Hal. There were rumors that Zekka Thyne was the heir-apparent to Prince Xizor's Black Sun empire, and that he had murdered a number of high-ranking Black Sun rivals to help pave that path. His imprisonment on Kessel, followed by Xizor's death just before the Battle of Endor, left Thyne without many possibilities. However, when Wedge Antilles and the New Republic began searching for a way to infiltrate Coruscant, they chose to release Thyne from Kessel and allow him to reactivate his old Black Sun contacts on the planet. Thyne was supposed to be under the watchful eye of Fliry Vorru, but he still managed to make contact with the Empire on Coruscant. He continually relayed information on the Rogues' activities until he was discovered by Corran Horn and Inyri Forge, his former lover and spice cutter.

this rotund alien, the Ambassador of the planet Majoor during the last years of the Old Republic, was one of C-3PO's owners before the droid was owned by Jord Dusat and Thall Joben. Ambassador Zell acquired the droids after they left the service of Lonn Idd and his children, Vik and Nikki, to serve as tutors and companions for his son Llez. However, he was unaware that his constant absence had turned Llez' attention to more devious pursuits. When Zell set out on a diplomatic mission to Armath, he found himself being pursued by the noted space pirate, Reddjak. Unknown to Zell, Llez had run away from home to set Reddjak free and join his pirate band. As Reddjak's forces closed in, Zell ordered his own security officers to turn the table on the pirate and board the attacking ship. Llez had realized that Reddjak wasn't a worthy hero, and helped his father bring the pirate to justice. It was then that Zell revealed he had once been a Space Ranger, earning more of Llez' admiration. In the wake of the incident, Zell resolved to spend more time with his son, and sent the droids back to the Intergalactic Droid Agency for reassignment.
