an Aratech airspeeder popular in the Outer Rim.
one of Aratech's landspeeders, the Arrow-23 was designed for use by adventurers and guides who needed to get into the wilderness. It was protected by military-grade armor and blast-resistant windows. Despite these measures, the 8.1-meter-long Arrow-23 was surprisingly comfortable, and was one of the fastest civilian speeders on the market during the height of the New Order. The Arrow-23 was also easily customized, with a wide range of options for communications, comfrot, and weapons. The Alliance modified these craft extensively, adding a laser cannon and a concussion grenade launcher to move up to 5 troopers into a hot battle zone.

this Ugnaught, a member of the Isced tribe, worked as a reporter for Action Tidings on Cloud City, during the height of the New Order. Fivvle had been with the network for nearly a century at the time of the Battle of Hoth, and was known for his ability to snoop out good stories. He was also known for his self-love, and many other reporters often said that he was the unofficial president of the Ars Fivvle fan club. He seemed to have a way of making himself the center of any story, although his reporting was generally considered to be in-depth and informative nonetheless. He was leaked information about the Ugnaught rebellion against Imperial Governor Treece, in the wake of Lando Calrissian's flight from Cloud City, some months after the Battle of Hoth. Fivvle and his team planned to record the eventual destruction of Cloud City, as a testament to the fortitude of the Ugnaught people. Note that Marvel Comics' Star Wars series, issue 57, depicts Fivvle and his team hiding out on the surface of Bespin, which was a swampy marsh filled with liquified gases, while waiting for the bombs to explode. Several years after the Battle of Endor, Fivvle retired to the Ugnaught outpost of Ugnorgrad, although he remained the most popular figure of Action Tidings. His holodocumentary, Ugnaughts' Progress, was so popular on Bespin that it was eventually picked up and distributed to newsnets across the galaxy, and earned him a great many honors from broadcast agencies. This, of course, only added to his self-described legend.

Art Beyond Dying
this was the name of the "glorious conception" honorable Blood Carvers could experience after their physical bodies died.

Art of Movement
this Jedi training exercise put a student into an obstacle course filled with lines of light, as well as a multitude of bouncing points of light. The idea was to move from one side of a room to the other, avoiding the various lights which kept moving around the room. The goal was to hone the student's reflexes while enhancing their agility.
Art of the Small
this technique of utilizing the power of the Force was discovered and refined by the Fosh Jedi Knight, Vergere, during her five decades of imprisonment with the Yuuzhan Vong. Vergere's personal study and introspection transcended the traditional definitions of a light side and a dark side to the Force. Instead, she found a wild form of the Force and a more controlled form. This definition, which simply stated the the Force exists and can be controlled, led her to the discovery of the Art of the Small. Using this technique, Vergere could make herself "small", in such a way that she was barely recognizable within the Force. This allowed her to fool her Yuuzhan Vong captors into believing that she was not, in fact, a Jedi Knight. It also allowed her to manipulate individual molecules within her body to affect tiny chemical changes. Thus, Vergere could alter her own tears to become healing fluids or poisons.
an Imperial Security Bureau agent who worked with Wallace Fisk on Demophon.

Aruk Besadii Aora
this Hutt was one of the most powerful members of the Besadii clan. A sibling of Zavval, it was Aruk who placed his nephew Kibbick in control of the Ylesian spice processing facility. Almost 900 years of age at the time of the inception of the New Order, Aruk was so corpulent that he was unable to perform simple movements. Aruk and Jiliac were the two most wealthy and powerful Hutts of their age, and they were continually striving to outdo each other in terms of profits. Aruk gave birth to the disfigured Hutt called Durga, and raised the child in the face of opposition from many other Hutts. When Jiliac realized that Aruk was going to cut off the supply of spice and slaves from Ylesia, he contacted Teroenza. The two devised a scheme in which poisoned nala-tree frogs - a favorite delicacy of Aruk's - were fed to the old Hutt. Aruk consumed the frogs with abandon until his system could no longer take the abuse. Aruk died form the continual poisoning, and his nephew, Durga, suspected foul play. Durga had Aruk's body frozen and sent to Coruscant for an autopsy, where the poison was identified and isolated.

this notorious Mirialan pirate was hired by the militant wing of the Nebula Front, during the last decades of the Old Republic, to harass Trade Federation convoys. He controlled the pirate group from his modified Tempest-class gunship, the Hawk-Bat. Cohl was a native of the same planet as Luminara Unduli, and bore facial and hand tattoos similar to those of the Jedi Master. He was known on his homeworld as a freedom fighter who made many sacrifices to help his people gain their independence. However, soon after his people gained their freedom, Arwen was accused of conspiring against his people, and sentenced to prison. He managed to escape from prison with the help of some friends, and vowed to have his revenge against those who imprisoned him. He became a mercenary and avenged himself quite strongly before setting out as a pirate. Many years later, Captain Cohl and his crew managed to infiltrate the Trade Federation freighter Revenue shortly before the Battle of Naboo, capturing the freighter's load of lommite and aurodium ingots. Unknown to Cohl, his actions were being tracked by the Republic and the Jedi Knights. After securing the aurodium ingots from the Revenue, Cohl and his infiltration team faked their own destruction by flying toward the explosion of the Trade Federation ship and hiding near the pole of Dorvalla. It was believed that Cohl's actions were actually part of Darth Sidious' plans to garner sympathy for the Federation within the Republic. Cohl and his crew tried to reach Dorvalla, but were shot down. Cohl himself managed to return to Asmeru, but the rest of his crew had either been killed or left the crew. Cohl was then hired by Havac to put together a team of assassins to help alter the course of events in the taxation of trade routes by the Republic by assassinating Chancellor Valorum on Eriadu. However, when the Jedi caught wind of Cohl's activities, Havac was forced to take action to avoid discovery of his own plans. Havac's forces intercepted Cohl's people on Eriadu, and a firefight broke out. Cohl was shot and left for dead by Havac in the melee, in an attempt to implicate Cohl in Valorum's death. With Boiny's help, Cohl was able to survive long enough to thwart Havac's plans. In another brief struggle, Cohl and Havac shot each other. Cohl died from the multiple blaster wounds.

Distinguished by three forehead tattoos and a scar across his left eye, Asa Naga and the Wookiee Gargachykk were sent by Darnada to hunt down Feen Fenoob and either obtain the credits that the Sullustan owed to Darnada, or bring in his body. They were unable to recover the money, and were resigned to bringing back the Sullustan's body when they discovered that Darth Maul had already killed him. The two thugs brought Maul back to Darnada, only to have the Sith Lord execute the entire assembly. Only Asa Naga survived, and he fled to Alexi Garyn's residence on Ralltiir to report on the execution of Darnada. Unfortunately, Maul followed him to Garyn's residence, and the Sith Lord killed him in an effort to eliminate any trace of his involvement.

a native of the planet Rattatak, this woman was a ruthless and cunning adversary, known for her military expertise and her corrupt mastery over the Force. Her parents were murdered by Osika Kirske when she was young, and might have died if not to the sudden appearance of Jedi Master Ky Narec. Master Narec was stranded on Rattatak, and discovered her connection to the Force. Cut off from the Jedi Order, Narec took it upon himself to train Ventress. After Narec was killed by Kirske, Ventress used her considerable powers to gain power and authority on her homeworld, and eventually killed Kirske. She believed that the Jedi Order had abandoned her teacher to his fate, and she hated them for it. This hatred gave her a strong connection to the Dark Side of the Force, which she tapped to kill off the twelve warlords who controlled various parts of Rattatak. A black tattoo stripe was draw on her bald skull for each warlord she killed. She was discovered later by Darth Tyranus, and was instrumental in his plans to lead the Separatists to victory. Despite the fact that she was never trained in the Sith arts, she became one of his most trusted Commanders, and wielded a pair of curved-handled ligthsabers which were similar to Tyranus' own weapon. However, each of Ventress' lightsabers could be attached at the base, creating a double-bladed lightsaber with blades that extended a slightly different angles. This made the weapon harder to deflect and counter. When it was learned that Jedi Master Mace Windu was traveling to Ruul to meet with the dissident Jedi Master Sora Bulq, Tyranus ordered Ventress to go to Ruul and kill the dissidents. If cornered, she was to explain that she had been hired by Master Windu, to help ensure that there would be no dissention among the Jedi. She managed to injure Master Bulq and kill Mira, and she openly stated that she hoped Master Windu would be pleased with her work. She then turned her attention to destroying Master Bulq's followers, hoping to ensure that the Jedi Order was discredited. She was unable, however, to defeat Master Windu in battle, and opted to flee Ruul and fight another day. Ventress later was teamed with the bounty hunter Durge, during the Separatist attack on the moon of Ohma-D'un. They had hoped to launch a second attack on Naboo, after Ohma-D'un was destroyed, but Republic forces led by Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker interrupted their plans. As Durge tried to reach Naboo, Obi-Wan and Ventress battled with their lightsabers in the swamps. Their battle ended in a draw, with Anakin arriving with clone troopers just as Durge arrived to help Ventress escape. They fled to Queyta, where they were ordered to secure the antidote to the swamp gas poison used on Ohma-D'un. Once again, Obi-Wan and the Jedi Knights confronted them, but Ventress was in control of the antidote by then. She tried to flee, but was pursued by Obi-Wan and Master Fay. It was Master Fay who used the Force to hurl shards of glass and metal at Ventress, catching the Dark Jedi in the throat. Ventress had no skills in healing, and surrendered the antidote to the Jedi. She didn't die, however, and stabbed Master Fay as they were fleeing. Once again, Ventress and Durge fled the Jedi to return to Count Dooku. As the Clone Wars ground on, Ventress issued substantial bounties on 82 members of the Jedi Order, all of them without the consent of the Republic Office of Criminal Investigations, which allowed every bounty hunter in the galaxy to try and capture them. This served two purposes. First, it helped eliminate many of the Jedi Knights. Second, it kept the rest of the Jedi Order busy defending themselves from bounty hunters while they were trying to bring an end to the conflict. She nearly killed Anakin Skywalker on Yavin 4 before escaping with her life, then captured Obi-Wan Kenobi on Jabiim, hoping to present the Jedi Master to Count Dooku as a gift. However, Obi-Wan managed to escape, taking Ky Narec's lightsaber with him. The loss of the weapon, which had been a symbol of Ventress' only guiding example, left her with a broken sense of loyalty. Near the end of the Clone Wars, Ventress guided the capture of the Intergalactic Communications Center on Praesitlyn, only to lose control of it to Anakin Skywalker's daring rescue operation. Ventress then began pleading with Dooku to take her as his apprentice, but Dooku refused. He knew that she would surpass him someday, and her skills only got more powerful the more she tried to impress him. Her loss of the Last Call and her failure to capture Yoda on Phindar did little to improve her standing in Dooku's eyes. After the escape of both Obi-Wan Kenobi and Quinlan Vos from the wreck of the Titavian IV, Ventress turned to desparate measures to regain favor with Dooku. She abandoned Tol Skorr at the wreck and followed the Jedi to Coruscant. There, after learning the truth behind Skywalker's relationship with Padme' Amidala, Ventress tried to kill the young Jedi Knight. However, Anakin's tactics put Ventress off-guard, and he was able to bind her with a set of electrical conduits, before throwing her off the top of a building. She was not seen again, although rumors of her came to Obi-Wan Kenobi through several channels. He continued to chase down every rumor, until even Anakin Skywalker became concerned that Obi-Wan was obsessed with killing her. Even after they discovered that it was Durge who killed Drama Korr, Obi-Wan still believed Ventress was still alive. He obtained information from Durge's pilot droid of a trip to Boz Pity, and there Obi-Wan discovered that Ventress' was being held in a form of stasis. Rather than eliminating her, Obi-Wan tried to redeem her, believing that she was not fully corrupted. He might have had a chance, after Dooku abandoned her on Boz Pity, but Dooku also ordered his MagnaGuards to shoot her dead. The blast only injured her, and as Obi-Wan tried to save her, Ventress lashed out at him with a jagged piece of metal. Anakin intervened, slicing into her chest with his lightsaber before she could harm Obi-Wan. The Jedi believed her to be dead, especially when she begged Obi-Wan to guard Coruscant from Count Dooku with her "dying breath." However, Ventress had used a Sith meditation technique to drop her vital signs to near-dead levels. After her body was loaded onto the medical shuttle Bright Flight, she forced the pilots to take her to a remote hospital facility for treatment, and she was never seen again.

this specialized version of the S-5 security blaster was often used by adventurers and scouts, although it had many other practical uses. Primarily developed by Captain Panaka, the ascension gun used a cylinder of compressed gas to project a heavy missile at a target. The missile could be tipped with a number of barbed points or attached to a grappling hook, depending on the method of ascension desired. Attached to the missile was a length of syntherope or other strong wire. The syntherope was then attached to a small but powerful winch located on the ascension gun's barrel. Once the missile was securley in position, the gun's user could activate the winch and be pulled upward to the missile.

this Vratix political party complemented the Zaltin and Xucphra factions of humans on Thyferra during the New Order. The Ashern were considered a terrorist group by the human factions, and was supposedly responsible for introducing contamination into a Xucphra bacta lot, at the direction of the Zaltin corporation. The origins of the Ashern could be traced back to the last decades of the Old Republic, during the early years of Alazhiaxazha, or the Thriving Season. Then known as the Razorclaws, these militant Vratix realized that their people would only be able to retain some measure of control over bacta production if they were able to understand and control the production of alazhi. To this end, the Ashern tried to develop a new strain of alazhi that would increase the effectiveness of bacta. This new strain of alazhi was destroyed about a year after it development, cementing the Ashern's role as terrorists rather than drivers of social change. Years later, Erisi Dlarit's uncle discovered a contaminate in lot ZX1449F, which was eventually traced back to the Ashern. The group was also known as Black Claw, in reference to the way in which they sharpened their foreclaws and painted themselves black to hide in the shadows. The Vratix became concerned about their human counterparts during the outbreak of the Krytos virus on Coruscant, seeing that the Imperial ties to the bacta cartels were becoming stronger. It was at this time that the Zaltin faction began supplying the Ashern with weapons and credits to maintain their attacks on Xucphra-aligned facilities. When they needed addiitonal help in planning their overthrow of Xucphra, they recalled Bror Jace from Rogue Squadron by falsely claiming his father was ill. They then arranged for Jace to "die" in an accident, making it possible for him to assist them without ties to any political body. They sent Qlaern Hirf to petition Wedge Antilles to champion the acceptance of the Vratix in the New Republic, in return for help in creating their own supply of bacta. Wedge agreed, but was unable to make a move when Ysanne Isard took control of Thyferra.

With the former capital world being reformed as a simulacrum of Yuuzhan'tar, Ash'ett grabbed territory and notoriety in an effort to gain more power for himself. He eventually became the leader of the Intendent caste on Coruscant. This made Ash'ett one of Nom Anor's first targets, after the former Executor had assumed the role of Yu'shaa, the Prophet who furthered the words of the Jedi Heresy.
this political contemporary of Senator Palpatine was one of the future Emperor's main opponents. In political circles, he was known as the Golden Tempter, a tribute to his persuasive voice and charismatic speeches. He came from the hyperdrive design division of Incom Industries, where his major contribution was the design of the Z-95. During the height of the Clone Wars, Ashgad was a Senator himself, and suddenly disappeared after he argued against a measure to install surveillance cameras in the Senate buildings. Ashgad was sentenced to a prison term on the world of Nam Chorios, where he came to power by filling in the void left when the Hutt Beldorion failed to maintain his hold on the populace. As Ashgad rose to power, he was subverted by the droch Dzym, who used Ashgad as his figurehead. Dzym kept Ashgad alive for many years beyond his natural lifespan by continually "recharging" his life energy, and a story was developed that Ashgad had a son. Then, still lively and youthful, Ashgad appeared as his own son and took control of the Rationalist Party on Nam Chorios. He arranged a meeting with Leia Organa-Solo, at the behest of Dzym, in order for the droch to launch his own assault on the galaxy. Organa-Solo was captured, and specially-created holo-vids dispatched to indicate she left Ashgad in good hands. Ashgad held her in his own complex on Nam Chorios until she escaped. Dzym took Ashgad and tried to flee the planet after the natives rose up in revolt, but their ship was destroyed before they made it out of the system.

this Gran Senator from the planet Malastare represented his homeworld to the Old Republic after Aks Moe was killed in a speeder accident. During the height of the Clone Wars, Senator Aak was a vocal opponent of the Jedi Knights, wondering aloud about their ability to lead the clone troopers of the Army of the Republic. He questioned the ability of a group of "peacemakers" to act as generals in the military, a stance he loudly reiterated after the defeats at the Battle of Jabiim and on Parcelus Minor. With the destruction of the Star of Iskin and the death of Finis Valorum, Senator Ask Aak found even more ammunition for his stance, which allowed him to speak eloquently in favor of the Security and Enforcement Act.
