this Arconan criminal is distinguishable by his dark grey skin, which has several deep brown stripes. He is also addicted to salt, as denoted by his golden eyes. His addiction spans most of his life, and his later years have been spent as a dealer in salt, further deepening his dependence. His small criminal empire grew after he migrated into the Minos Cluster, where his black market network is bested only by that of Yerkys ne Dago. He hoped to locate a method of inducing a similar form of addiction in humans, and succeeded during the Galactic Civil War. He discovered a fungus which, when given to the people of Shesharile 5 and 6, created an intense addiction that nearly tore the worlds apart.

Sh'ner-class Planetary Assault Carrier
this pointed, oblong Ssi-ruuvi batleship measured 750 meters in length, rivaling the Shree-class cruisers in sheer size. The Sh'ner-class assault ship was essential to any Ssi-ruuvi attack plan, although it was known that only one Sh'ner-class was sent as part of the force which invaded the planet Bakura. The Sh'ner-class was slow and underpowered for the work it was assigned, and thus was protected by Fw'sen-class picket ships and Wurrif-class light cruisers. They have been equipped with weak shields and minimal weaponry - six ion cannons and two tractor beam projectors - which further increases the need for support craft. The primary mission profile of the Sh'ner-class carrier was to drop off D'kee-class landing ships to battle sites. Each Sh'ner-class ship was equipped with six launch bays to handle the twelve D'kee-class ships it carries. The Sh'ner-class was also sparsely crewed for its size. Only 60 Ssi-ruuk form the command crew and man the entechment labs. 500 P'w'eck are used for assistance and manual labor, so the ship was riddled with stun traps. There were also 30 Ssi-ruuk gunners to man the weapons stations. The Sh'ner-class carrier could also transport up to 5,000 metric tons of cargo.
this underworld leader controls much of the shipping that leaves Travnin.
this was the name of one of the first settlements established outside the borders of Bartyn's Landing, on the planet Lamaredd. The Shoals was originally leased by Hugo Bartyn to a group of Quarren workers who wanted to live on their own, yet still remain employed by Bartyn's seafood harvesting operations. Bartyn realized that he could make more money by expanding his base of operations, and later funded several other frontier locations like The Shoals.
this man was the leader of the Qektoth Confederation in the years following the Battle of Endor. Shoame advocated and supported the development of biochemical weapons to use against the weakers races of the galaxy, and tested one of them on the crew of the FarStar.

a blind, humanoid of the Miraluka race, Shoaneb discovered that her race's innate abilities with the Force were quite strong within herself. Against her parents' wishes, she decided to leave her homeworld of Alpherides and seek out training with the Jedi Knights. The journey was hard, as the Force changed on every world she encountered, forcing her to relearn all the skills she had mastered on Alpherides. After a year or so, Shoaneb landed on Ossus, and was apprenticed to the Jedi Master Vodo-Siosk Baas. Baas felt that her insatiable desire to learn more about the Force and the Jedi was really a desire for power, but soon realized that she was extremely curious. However, despite her sensitivity to the Force, Shoaneb struggled to master the basic techniques of controlling it and using it. Lightsaber construction came particularly hard for her, as well as combat. While this might have driven off other students, Shoaneb continued to train, and eventually attained the rank of Jedi Knight. During her studies, which lasted much longer than most of her peers, Shoanbed learned a great deal about the Jedi Prophecies. She attended the Jedi Assembly on Deneba to discuss the Krath. She was killed in the Cron System, when Aleema tried to defeat the Jedi Knights by ripping the core from a Cron star.

During the battle, Anakin was able to get Shok Choka off-balance, and cleaved his head off with his lightsaber.

this was one of the aliases adopted by the spy Kaird, during the time he spent on the planet Drongar, during the height of the Clone Wars. Shomu was a corpulent human, and the costume was effective because it completely masked Kaird's true form. It was Shomu who provided Ord Vorra with a copy of the latest broadcast of Galactic Sports Update, which chronicled the Strag Sector Match Championship.

this was one of the small group of Shamed Ones who lived beneath the surface of Coruscant, after the planet had been transformed into a likeness of Yuuzhan'tar. Shoon-mi was a creche'-brother to Niiriit Esh, and was one of the few Shamed Ones who lived independently, away from groups like that led by Vuurok I'pan. Like the other Shamed ones, though, Shoon-mi believed that the Jedi Knights were not abominations, but saviors of the Shamed Ones and symbols of the new ideology which should be embraced by the Yuuzhan Vong. For this reason, their band remained small, in case they were captured by the Yuuzhan Vong warriors. This ensured that their small cult of Jedi followers would never be fully discovered. Shoon-mi was also devoted to protecting his sister Niiriit, who wasn't so independent that she refused his help. Unfortunately for the small group, they were discovered, and a group of Yuuzhan Vong warriors destroyed most of them. Shooni-mi, along with Nom Anor and Kunra, managed to survive the raids. Shoon-mi agreed to work with Nom Anor to ensure their further survival, as the former Executor adopted the name Yu'shaa and began to spread The Message to the Shamed Ones of Coruscant. However, unknown to Nom Anor, Shoon-Mi had begun to doubt the Prophet's dedication to The Message, and came to feel that Nom Anor was offering the Shamed Ones one form of servitude for another. In a bold attempt, Shoon-Mi and several other Shamed Ones loyal to him tried to assassinate Nom Anor. He hoped to kill the former Executor and, using an ooglith masquer, pretend to be the Prophet until such time as he could reveal himself. As Shoon-Mi tried to stab Nom Anor with a coufee, Kunra discovered the plot and stabbed Shoon-Mi in the back, severing his spinal column. Nom Anor, having survived the attack, then suffocated the remaining life from Shoon-Mi's body.

This latter invocation was performed in preparation for the tarana-te'sath, which the Tarasin believed was about to occur after discussions with a strange Human Jedi Knight.

His muscular physique gave him the right body to blend in the the Imperials, but became a liability after the Battle of Endor. Then, while working for the New Republic, his thick body made him stand out more. This led to his promotion into more of a supervisory role, which he held at the time the Yuuzhan Vong launched their invasion. Showolter and Elan made it to Wayland without a problem, but the Yuuzhan Vong launched a false "assassination" attempt on Elan's life after they arrived at Wayland.
