a planet near the Roche Asteroid Field. It was the base for Ackbar's Project Shantipole.
Roche Asteroid Field
this area of the galaxy contained what was believed to have been the remnants of the homeworld of the Verpine race, although many xenoarchaeologists claimed it was simply colonized by the Verpine nearly two hundred years before the formation of the Old Republic, The asteroid field itself was located near Barab I and Kubindi, and was a breeding site for mynocks and space slugs. The Roche Asteroid Field was a collection of asteroid belts orbiting a small yellow sun. The native Verpine made their homes within the asteroids, carving out living areas, hangars, and factories from the rock. During the months following the Qoribu Crisis, much of the economy and industry of the Roche Asteroid Field was brought to a standstill when the Verpine became increasingly dependent upon black membrosia. The inebriated Verpine were unable to perform their duties, and many simply failed to show up for work.

Roche Hive Mechanical Apparatus Design and Construction Activity for Those Who Need the Hive's Machines
this was the full name of Roche Industries.
this was the name given to the small group of Verpine technicians who produced several varieties of droids during the height of the New Order. Many of their original designs, such as the J9-series worker drone, were not accepted by human droid buyers, but several later designs - like the Siak-series - sold quite well.
a term used to describe a section of a black hole.
another name for the Roche Asteroid Fields.
produced by Malik Technologies, Rock Boots were specially-designed and reinforced footwear created for use in the harsh environments found near volcanoes.
this small reptile is native to the planet Dathomir. It has rough, mottled skin which helps it blend into its surroundings. The rock dragon is an egg-laying species, and they build nests among the rocks in which to lay their eggs. They then use their bodies to warm the eggs, with their natural camouflage helping to hide the nest. They eat mainly insects and plants, but have a defensive poison that they inject with a small stinger to protect themselves. The poison is strong enough to kill a full-grown rancor.
this Hapan passenger ship was owned by Tenel Ka, but was constantly being upgraded by Jaina Solo and Lowbacca. The ship was a present from Tenel Ka's parents, following her wish to have her own ship. Much of the influence on her parents came from her grandmother, Ta'a Chume, who felt that her granddaiughter needed adequate protection while at the Jedi Academy on Yavin 4 - especially in the wake of the Shadow Academy's attacks. The ship was by no means on the leading edge of technology, and was cleaned of any Hapan markings so that Tenel Ka could travel in anonymity whenever necessary. The name of the ship was given by Tenel Ka, and refers to the small reptile native to Dathomir. It also alludes to the Hapan custom of naming their starships "dragons." Jaina used it to rescue Zekk, Raynar, and Bornan Thul from Boba Fett, in much the same way her father bought Luke Skywalker an extra minute during the Battle of Yavin. She came at Fett with the blazing light of a star behind her, blinding the bounty hunter to her approach.

this species of flat-bodied mollusk was native to the planet Mytus VII. One of the only creatures which could survive on the planet's surface, rock suckers feed on the minerals of the planet's crust by exuding an acidic secretion from the suckers on their underside.

this unusual being lived on the Forest Moon of Endor. Many years before the Battle of Yavin, the Rock Wizard controlled the Jindas, who farmed his lands. When the Jindas angered him with their mistakes, the Rock Wizard banished them from his kingdom, forcing them to wander the surface of the moon in search of a new home. Many years later, when Logray attempted to break the curse that kept the Jindas on the move, the Rock Wizard reappeared and tried to punish the Ewok for meddling. However, Logray managed to banish the Rock Wizard and free the Jindas.
this was a branch of The Workers faction, based on the planet New Apsolon some twelve years before the Battle of Naboo. The Rock Workers were miners by trade, working in the quarries of their homeworld to harvest wondrous stone and ores. During Balog's attempt to take control of New Apsolon, the Rock Workers allied themselves with the Tech Workers. When the Aboslutes who were working with Balog attacked the Rock Worker settlement, they killed every living being they encountered. They wanted no witnesses to their theft of weapons, explosives, and supplies, and even killed the children of the Rock Workers.

this speciallized Imperial stormtrooper was trained to move into and out of military actions via a simple rocket pack that was integrated into the standard stormtrooper armor. Because the pack was part of the armor, it had limited usage, being capable of just twenty total seconds of flight before requiring recharging. Each rocket trooper also carried an M-SMS missile system.
Rocket-Jumper Elite Advance Unit
known most often as the Rocket Jumpers, this Old Republic military division was made up of short-range assault troops that deployed from floating fortresses while harnessed to a rocket backpack. The backpack allowed the soldier a full range of motion that was controlled via movements of the head. The mission of the Rocket Jumpers was most often to break stalemates and seize control of an area until regular units could advance and reinforce the area. They were one of the original SpecForce units, created shortly before the onset of the Great Sith War.

native to the coastal waters of the planet Senali, this timid, spined fish had three large claws, which it used to catch its prey. The Senalis discovered that the rocshore fish would regenerate a claw if one was removed, and hunted the fish for their clawmeat. By spearing the fish in the tail, where there were no nerves to cause pain, the rocshore fish could be immobilized long enough to twist off a claw. The Senalis were careful to remove a single claw at a time, for the fish was unable to hunt with a single claw, and eventually died of starvation. The rocshore fish's clawmeat was a staple in the Senali diet. The Senalis learned that they had to hunt for rocshore fish underwater, for the fish were easily spooked by the presence of a boat. Whenever spooked, rocshore fish would bury themselves in the sand to hide.
this Balmorran Arms automaton was developed to address the security and defense needs of musicians and artists who were traveling the galaxy during the last decades of the Old Republic. In additon to being equipped with several sensor suites and advanced life-protection programming, each RO-D could be armed with lethal or non-lethal weaponry. They were also capable of moving heavy loads, and were designed to be used as roadies when not on active duty. Unlike most other droids, the RO-D was available in more than 70 different color schemes, allowing musicians to use them discreetly in virtually any stage set-up.
this being was a noted member of the Advoszec race.
this planet was the site of a mining operation that was invaded by the Empire.
this man, a native of the planet Commenor, was a member of the New Republic Advisory Council. As a Senator, he opposed the formation of a new Jedi Council, shortly before the Yuuzhan Vong invasion of the galaxy. Many rumors spoke of Rodan's own ties to the smugglers that the vigilante Jedi led by Kyp Durron were taking out of business, and hinted that his dislike of the Jedi was based more on lost profits than anything else. However, these rumors were not true of Fyor, but his older brother Tormak. Later, Rodan threw in his support to Borsk Fey'lya, who argued for the defense of Bothawui when it was learned that the Yuuzhan Vong were going to attack either Bothawui of Corellia. Rodan believed that the Jedi had manipulated the information in order to force the New Republic into a poor position, which would leave the door open for the Jedi to take control of the galaxy. He went so far as to call the Jedi way a "quaint philosophy" in the presence of Luke Skywalker. Shortly afterward, Rodan was one of few members of the Advisory Council to reach Borleias, in the wake of the Second Battle of Coruscant. He joined the self-appointed Chief of State Pwoe in trying to take control of the Republic's future, but realized that Pwoe was really only in the game for his own personal agenda. When the remnants of the Republic called for a meeting on Calamari, Rodan abandoned Pwoe and returned to the rightful Republic. However, he held no more love for the Jedi or their efforts with the war, and made sure to take every public opportunity to belittle Luke Skywalker and the Jedi. His bid to become the Republic's Chief of State was thwarted when Cal Omas was elected, but Rodan grudgingly swore to work with Omas and the new Jedi High Council to help turn the tide of battle against the Yuuzhan Vong.

this man was the older brother of New Republic Senator Fyor Rodan. Tormak was a smuggler who worked for Jabba the Hutt, and went solo when Jabba was killed on Tatooine. Tormak worked from a base on Nar Shaddaa during much of his career. The two brothers hated each other, taking opposite sides of virtually every issue. Tormak's exploits were mistakenly attributed to Fyor during his early Senatorial career, and rumors of his ties to smugglers led many to questions of his veracity. Fyor found that he couldn't admit to Tormak's smuggling, as the admission would damage his career almost as much as the rumors had.

this domesticated species of thranta was bred on the planet Bespin by the acrobats and daredevils of the Air Rodeo. These thrantas were originally brought to Bespin from Alderaan many generations before, and were prized for their ability to be tamed while maintaining enough spirit and intelligence to perform complex tricks. Individual rodeo thrantas were trained to respond to high-pitched whistles, allowing their riders to turn them as needed. These thrantas usually have about ten years of performing before they are "retired" and used as mounts or pets. Because of the thrantas' inability to survive without the correct atmosphere, the Air Rodeo rarely traveled away from Bespin.
this was the language spoken by the Rodian people.
the tropical home world of the Rodian race, Rodia was the second planet in the Tyrius System. Rodia was orbited by four natural moons. It was once a lush paradise teaming with life, but the hunters of the Rodians wiped out much of the planet's native life in search of food and dominance. Since then, it has become highly industrialized. Because of this industrialization, Rodia was subjugated by the Yuuzhan Vong, shortly after the alien invaders took Druckenwell and Falleen. The native Rodians fled into the wilderness, and continued to stage guerrilla raids on Yuuzhan Vong settlements throughout the remainder of the war.

this was the largest body of water found on the planet Rodia.
this bipedal race with tapir-like face and multifaceted eyes is native to the planet Rodia, in the Tyrius system. The skin of a Rodian is green in color, and there is very little physical variation within the species. Thus, non-Rodians often cannot tell two Rodians apart. The Rodian race has ears that swivel in their sockets, allowing them to hear in several directions. There is a ridge of spikes which crests their skulls, and their long, flexible fingers are tipped with suction cups. They are a race of hunters by nature, and bounty hunting seems to hold a place of high esteem. As a race, they evolved are hunters, surviving their planet's tropical environment and establishing a series of war games which lasted for thousands of years. When an Old Republic scout team landed on the planet, the Rodians were there to meet them, armed to the teeth. They annihilated the scout team, and the Grand Protector declared that it was time to take their skills to the stars. Since then, they have not done as well as they had hoped. Many of the Rodians who make a living off-planet are working as bounty hunters for corrupt crime lords. Their weapon of choice is the thermal detonator, since a widespread explosion tends to kill more than a single blaster shot. Each bounty hunter is obliged to bring a valid record of his or her kill to the Guild on Rodia for logging in the record books. Others are making a living as Imperial lackeys. Rodians almost wiped themselves out as a race, during a time when the birthrate among females dropped below the level at which they were killing each other off. Harido Kavila, the Grand Protector at the time, devised a way for the Rodian people to funnel their violent tendencies through dramatic plays. The stories revolved primarily around violence, but had a well-defined plot and used the violence to magnify the emotional impact of the plays. The Rodian dramas became well-known throughout the galaxy, in part because they were strong dramas but also because they portrayed the full impact of violence on the perpetrator and his victim. When the Yuuzhan Vong subjugated Rodia, the surviving Rodians fled into the wilderness, preferring to stay alive and fight with terrorist-like attacks. The fact that these attacks continued with increasing violence caused the Yuuzhan Vong to admire the Rodian spirit, and many Rodians who were captured were given favored status as slaves.

Rodian Hunting Grounds
known as the Etyyy in the Shyriiwook language, this area of the planet Kashyyyk was located to the southeast of Kachirho. Comprised of several safari compounds established by various Rodian hunters who paid regular tazes to the Wookiees for the use of the land, the Rodian Hunting Grounds became the planet's primary proving grounds for big-game hunters of all species. However, the original ideals of the Etyyy - treating both the land and the hunt with respect - gave way to the accumulation of credits and the arrival of the Empire. The Imperial agents who subjugated Kashyyyk stripped the Wookiees of any income they were receiving from the Rodians, and then demanded that the Rodians pay a hefty tax to continue their hunts on the now Imperially-controlled land. The Rodians were more interested in the credits than their agreement with the Wookiees, and simply started paying taxes to the Empire to preserve their ability to hunt. The appearance of Chiss poachers was not welcomed by either the Wookiees or the Rodians, but the Empire chose to ignore the situation, causing even more damage to the environment of the Etyyy.

this diminutive Kadrillian served as an administrative aide to Dal Quirz, during the early years of the Galactic Civil War. Rodno was a very self-confident individual, although his knowledge was often incomplete. This was due mainly to his young age and lacked of experience, but it didn't stop Rodno from trying to learn more, as quickly as he could. When it was learned that the Empire was planning to subjugate the Kadrillians and the Nocivs in order to steal all the kunda stones on Kadirl, Rodno led Luke Skywalker and Han Solo into Nociv territory. There, he reunited with his chosen mate, Deerna, who had decided to remain with the Nocivs. Rodno's love for her remained strong, and he stepped in front of a blaster bolt meant for Deerna in the fighting. The wound was not fatal, and Rodno survived. Deerna agreed to marry him, and Rodno agreed to remain with the Nocivs.

He demanded vengeance of Guth and Captain Ugmush after Vrokk's death, which he claimed to have been caused by an outlander from a starship. Rog challenged Guth to a duel, and promised to kill Ugmush as soon as he dispatched Guth. However, before the duel could take place, Callista Ming and Kufbrug discovered the plot set in place by Rog's wife, Gundruk, to kill Vrokk and assume control of Bolgoink. It was learned that Gundruk had ordered Rog to obtain a tiny homunculus-wasp and place it into the wax seal of the false challenge document given to Vrokk. Callista could only assume that Rog was just a pawn in the entire plan. Rog and Gundruk fled Gamorr, rather than face Kufbrug's wrath.

a clan of Gamorreans on the planet Gamor.
this loyal man was married to Tyerle, and they settled on the planet Questal to escape the threat of the New Order. Rogan became involved in the resistance for two reasons: first, because his brother-in-law Tiree was an Alliance agent; second, because the Empire installed Moff Bandor to rule Questal and control the production of ardanium. Rogan began establishing resistance cells, but was eventually caught in the waves of fear created by Bandor's hurlothrumbic generator. Rogan was sent to the Game Chambers, and was a mindless survivor when he was rescued by Alliance agents. He eventually recovered, once he was free of the influence of the generator.
