one of Munto Codru's younger, less experienced families.
this was the name given to the captured Shree-class Ssi-ruuvi warship, the Shriwirr, in the wake of the Battle of Bakura. The New Republic refitted the ship for humanoid operation, and sent it into the Ssi-ruuvi star cluster to reconnoiter the threat the aliens posed to the fledgling Republic. The New Republic discovered that the Ssi-ruu had been attacked by a force of Chiss from the Unknown Regions, and that the aliens were all by defeated.
a human forced to work for the Ssi-ruuvi during their invasion of Bakura, Dev was a small boy born to Force-sensitive parents. His mother, Ydra Kilwallen Sibwarra, had just begun Jedi training on Chandrila when the Emperor ordered the Jedi purged from existence. The fled to the planet G'rho, but they arrived just before the Ssi-ruuk overtook the planet. The alien invaders captured the curious lad, and brought him to their own homeworld for five years of conditioning. After that, Dev became a spokeman for the Ssi-ruu race in their quest to entech human minds. The Ssi-ruuk brought Dev with them to Bakura, and hoped he would ease the struggle to entech its human inhabitants. However, Dev's Force-sensitive mind was discovered by Luke Skywalker, who helped Dev overcome the Ssi-ruuvi conditioning and shrug off their renewals. Dev came back to the world of humans following the defeat of the Ssi-ruuk, but he sustained mortal injuries and died at Bakura.
Sibwarra, Ydra Kilwallen
this woman was an apprentice Jedi at the rise of the New Order, and was forced to flee her homeworld of Chandrila in the wake of the Clone Wars. She hoped to avoid Emperor Palpatine's Jedi Purge, and to save her family, which included a young son named Dev. They decided to settle on the Chandrilan colony world of G'rho. Later, Ydra was killed when the Ssi-ruuk first invaded G'rho.
this was the name of one of the most disgusting trainined facilities established for the training of cloned soldiers on the planet Kamino, during the build-up to the Battle of Geonosis and the Clone Wars. The Sickener was named because the facility was basically a huge field of trenches, each of which was filled with the entrails of dead animals and other decaying matter. The clones were forced to crawl, wade, or slither through the Sickener, as part of a training regimen designed to ensure they didn't falter in actual combat. The instructors who drove their soldiers through the Sickener constantly reminded the soldiers that it was nothing compared to what they would encounted on an actual battlefield.
this caste of Bosph was made up of those individuals which excelled at tapping into the Force to help heal others.
this species of rasp was native to the moon of Rori. It was named for its sickle-like beak, and was known to deliver a mild poison when it attacked its prey.
this predatory insect, native to the planet Dantooine, was known for its intense mating rituals. During the ritual, the red-and-black insects court each other. However, once mating was successful, the female mantis tore the head off her mate and laid her eggs in his carcass. The young mantises then ate their way out of his body, attacking each other to gain their freedom.
this Nebulon-B2 frigate was part of the Imperial Navy, during the height of the Galactic Civil War.
an intelligent race of arachnids from the planet Sisk, these black aliens have hard outer shells, eight eyes, and eight 6-jointed legs. They are a highly anitsocial race, and have been unable to form a coherent government or any form of industrialization. However, they do have an advanced technology (which they consider to be better than anyone else's), and use it to capture their prey. The poison used in the Sic-six' fangs, while deadly to other members of its species and other creatures native to Sisk, is valued throughout the galaxy as an intoxicant by other races. They are descended from a race of web-lingerers which simply lunged around waiting for prey to become entangled. However, as the star Sisk collapsed and cooled their homeworld, the Sic-Six were forced to begin foraging for food. Eventually, they became the intelligent, sophisticated hunters they are today.
Sid Te', Berren
this man, a native of the city of Fabrillan, was the leader of the Alliance sleeper cell known only as V-16. He lived most of his life as a lowly street urchin, but ued his standing to create a massive network of unknowning spies and informants. Sid, as he was known to his associates, detested the Imperial presence in Fabrillan. He had seen firsthand that the Empire despised entrepreneurs and individuals, and worked to provide any information he could to the Alliance. For all appearances, though, Sid seemed to be an enterprising street vendor with a large network of salesbeings.
this was one of the handful of calendar re-synchronizations that took place during the 25,000-year history of the Old Republic. The exact reason for the shift to the Sidereal Period calendar were lost over time, and only a handful of ancient computer systems actually remembered the dating scheme and used it on a regular basis. What was known was that the Sidereal Period calendar was instituted 5,689 years before the Battle of Yavin. This calendar system was abandoned in the wake of the Great Re-Synchronization.
(CSWEA, LAT1, OWS)
developed by Chop Harlison, this unusual swoop racer was based on the standard Nebulon-Q swoop chassis. The main difference was the addition of a sidecar, which most corporate swoop producers believed would always overturn a standard swoop. Chop Harlison added a large wing on the opposite side of the swoop, counterbalancing the sidecar with the help of gravity compensators. The working prototype of the Siderider was also armed with a pair of blaster cannons.
meaning "musical", this was one of the most common names among Rodian females. These names generally described characteristics of historical individuals, and different Rodian clans used up to three names to describe an individual.
this female Rodian was a frequent patron of Dex's Diner, during the years leading up to the Clone Wars. She was often seen in the company of her friend, Honka.
known as a mud crawler, this large reptile was native to the planet Seikosha. Resembling a small-headed crocodile, the Sid'Han were vicious predators which were capable of taking down multiple victims at once. They burrowed in the mud, sensing their prey's approaching footsteps by vibrations. When the prey was close enough, the Sid'Han lashed out with its tail, wrapped the prey before inflicting terrible wounds with its toothy jaws. They can grow to be 10 meters in length.
Sidi Driss Inn
this was one of the most luxurious hotels found in the city of Anchorhead, on the planet Tatooine, during the early years of the New Republic. During the last decades of the Old Republic, the Sidi Driss was a simple moisture farm, until Dama and her newly-married husband decided to transform it into an inn. Over the years, the Sidi Driss became quite elegant, and catered to all sorts of beings. The Hutts who used to control much of Tatooine's criminal operation seven had a special wing set aside for their use. Note that this hotel was named for the actual Sidi Driss Hotel, located in Tunisia, which served as the location for shooting the Lars homestead during the making of Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope.
this gold-scaled Tiss'shar was the president of the planetary government of Tiss'sharl, during the height of the New Order. Shortly after the Battle of Yavin, Si-Di-Ri was faced with several assassination attempts, all of which he managed to survive. The loss of the first Death Star meant trouble for Si-Di-Ri and his people, since the Empire had recognized the threat of the Alliance and was doing everything it could to react. Among the many changes was the price that was paid for Tiss'shar-built blaster cartridges, which were sold to TaggeCo for manufacture. When Darth Vader arrived to introduce Commander Demmings as the new Imperial Moff of the system, Si-Di-Ri was surprised when the Dark Lord ordered that Tiss'sharl blaster cartridges be made available to the Empire at a reduced cost, but that Si-Di-Ri himself was not to be harmed because of the situation. This warning went largely unheeded, as Si-Di-Ri survived another assassination attempt the same night. Unknown to most of his fellow Tiss'shar, however, was Si-Di-Ri's relationship to the Alliance. Through Senator Timi Rotramel, Si-Di-Ri had been secretly supplying Tiss'sharl technology to the fledgling Alliance, although he was unsure that they could actually defeat the Empire. His fears were confirmed when Vader interrupted his discussion with Rotramel, and killed the Senator before he could defend himself. It was then that Vader revealed he had been using Si-Di-Ri as a pawn in the larger game of flushing out the rebellious Senators. In return for Si-Di-Ri's "assistance," Vader allowed him to live, and rescinded the latest price change for Tiss'sharl's blaster cartridges, in recognition of Si-Di-Ri's continued loyalty to the Empire. Si-Di-Ri, however, could not maintain the ruse of loyalty, and resigned from the Tiss'sharl League as soon as Vader had left the planet.
this Pada was a miner and prospector, and spent much of his career working the Sil'Lume Asteroid Belt with Gideon Smith. Like all Pada, Sidney hated violence and killing, and was rather reserved. This made him the opposite of Gideon's swaggering boisterousness, but their relationship deepened because of their good fit. Shortly after the Battle of Yavin, Sidney and Gideon met Luke Skywalker, and enlisted his help in rescuing Erling Tredway from Imperial Governor Parnell's prison on Tol Ado. During the rescue, Sidney was forced to kill a stormtrooper who would have surely killed Luke and Gideon. Sidney greatly regretted the action, feeling that his soul would be stained forever. Both Gideon and Luke reminded him that, if he hadn't shot the trooper, they would all be dead along with Erling. This reassurance did little for Sidney's spirit, but he remained loyal to his friends. However, Sidney was killed shortly after Luke and Erling escaped from the prison, in a firefight with Imperial troops. Luke made sure to remember Sidney's contributions when he returned to Yavin 4.

Siege of Kal'Shebbol
this was the name given to the New Republic's assault on the planet Kal'Shebbol, some four years after the Battle of Endor. The New Republic's goal was to bring down Imperial Moff Kentor Sarne, but Sarne managed to escape and fled to Kathol.
Siege of Kyrska
this intensely-fought, three-month struggle took place during the Galactic Civil War. It involved several house-to-house campaigns.
Siege of Saleucami
this was the term used by historians to describe the five-month-long battle between the forces of the Confederacy of Independent Systems and the Old Republic, during the final months of the Clone Wars, for control of the planet Saleucami. The Jedi Order had discovered that Sora Bulq and Rath Kelkko had begun creating clones for a "shadow army" from the genetic material of Bok, a Morgukai Warrior of great renown. This shadow army was trained by the Anzati in the ways of stealth and assassination, and was deemed too dangerous to develop by the Jedi Council and Chancellor Palpatine. The Republic's forces were led by Jedi Masters Oppo Rancisis and Quinlan Vos, but accomplished little more than preventing the cloned Morgukai from leaving the planet.
this name was common among Sullustan males, and meant "ingenious".
this New Republic Councilor was part of the new breed of intermediaries created after Ponc Gavrisom was named President. Siev was also a historical expert, with a vast knowledge of Imperial history.
this Sullustan Admiral was the backbone of the New Republic Defense Force, during the Yuuzhan Vong invasion of the galaxy. In the wake of the debacle at the Battle of Fondor, Sien Sovv barely overcame a vote of no confidence within the New Republic Senate. He happened to be leading a small fleet of warships in the vicinity of Reecee when Han Solo discovered Yuuzhan Vong forces massing near the Black Bantha. Sovv was forced to engage the Yuuzhan Vong, in an effort to disrupt their plans to attack Coruscant. His fleet was woefully small, and only delayed the second wave of ships which eventually attacked Coruscant. In the wake of the Second Battle of Coruscant, Admiral Sien Sovv was the highest ranking officer in the Navy, and was designated by Senator Pwoe as the Supreme Commander of the remaining New Republic armed forces. Unfortunately, this rank stood even after Pwoe was ostracized on Kuat, and Admiral Sovv was forced to take the brunt of the criticism when New Republic forces were soundly defeated in many battles against the alien invaders. After the Yuuzhan Vong surrendered to the Galactic Alliance at Coruscant some five years after the start of their invasion, Admiral Sovv unexpectedly decided to retire. He was succeeded by Traest Kre'fey, but remained attached to the military until his untimely death about six years later. He was killed when the Vratix pilots of a freighter got inebriated on black membrosia and collided with Admiral Sovv's vessel. Although many other beings died in the collision, the presence of Admiral Sovv in the area led many beings to speculate that the collision was not an accident, but a heartless assassination attempt. The Galactic Alliance's Chief of State, Cal Omas, intimated this during his short speech at Admiral Sovv's funeral, vowing to bring those responsible to justice. Omas went so far as to implicate the Colony in Sovv's assassination, although he lacked any evidence beyond the presence of black membrosia that linked the Killiks to the collision.

Sienar Advanced Projects Laboratories
this division of Sienar Design Systems created many experimental prototypes during the last decades of the Old Republic, including the Infiltrator craft used by Darth Maul. Many credit the Advanced Projects team with the earliest advancements in the use of contained hypermatter, which eventually led to the immense power core of the Death Stars.
Sienar Army Systems
this brand-name used by Santhe/Sienar Technologies was introduced following the Battle of Endor. Lady Valles Santhe created this division to help redeem her name in the eyes of Imperial supporters.
new name of Santhe/Seinar Technologies, after the fall of the cloned Emperor Palpatine on Byss.
Sienar Design Systems
this early brainchild of Raith Sienar was an internal workshop of Sienar Technologies, and eventually became Sienar Fleet Systems. SDS was known for its one-of-a-kind designs and secret projects, which were developed in the Advanced Projects Laboratory. Note that The New Essential Guide to Weapons and Technology indicates that SDS was a subsidiary of Republic Sienar Systems.

Sienar Fleet Systems
a division of Santhe/Seinar Technologies and once known as Republic Seinar Systems, they are the builders of the TIE family of starfighters, Interdictor-class Cruisers, and other Imperial war machines. They have the reputation of being one of the most dominant starfighter manufacturer, and their designs have become wildly successful since the advent of the New Order.

Sienar Intelligence Systems
this subsidiary of Santhe/Sienar Technologies was developed during the early years of the New Order to provide droid programming for the Empire. It worked with smaller corporations, like LesTech, to ensure that Imperial automata were given similar personalities, skills, and traits.
Sienar Patrol Ships
this was a form of patrol craft produced by Sienar Fleet Systems, during the years following the Battle of Endor.
this was the name given to the immense refinery and reclamation facility established on Raxus Prime by Sienar Fleet Systems, during the last decades of the Old Republic. Note that the Star Wars Databank provides the Sienar Fleet Systems reference, placing its formation from the old Republic Sienar Systems many years before the institution of the New Order. Scientists at the Sienar Refinery discovered that the sewers of Raxus Prime were constructed to help sweep away waste many thousands of years before the Battle of Geonosis, indicating that the planet had been a toxic wasteland for many generations.
this was the civilian branch of Sienar Fleet Systems, and produced many freighter and transport ship designs.
this corporation took control of the industrial world of Lianna about 100 years before the Battle of Yavin. Sienar Technologies was the latest in a series of corporations headed by the Sienar family, which traced its roots back to the designers of the warships used by Empress Teta during the Unification Wars. When Emperor Palpatine took control of the galaxy, he nationalized Sienar Technologies and renamed it Sienar Fleet Systems. Shortly afterward, Kerred Santhe purchased controlling interest in Sienar and renamed it Santhe/Sienar Technologies.
this man was the father of Raith Sienar, and was the chief executive officer of Sienar Technologies before he was killed in a explosion aboard a family starship near Dantooine. The explosion was caused by a group of mercenaries, who had been hired by the Xi Charians to eliminate Raith. Raith managed to escape before their ship blew up, but Narro did not survive. The board of directors of Sienar Technologies, upon learning of the ambush and Narro's death, turned over full control of Sienar Technologies to Raith.
this man was the founder of Sienar Design Systems, and the designer of the basic courier ship which eventually became the Infiltrator. He was born around the same time as Wilhuff Tarkin, and the two grew up as friends within the complex social structure of the planet Coruscant. Raith was the son of Narro Sienar, and was part of a long line of industrialists who could trace their roots back to the warship producers of Empress Teta's Unification Wars. He was trained at the Rigovian Technical University, and his skills with starship design and construction were well-known, and Sienar ships were in high demand. In fact, it was one of Sienar's designs - the Expeditionary Battle Planetoid - which Tarkin eventually stole and claimed as his own which became the first Death Star. Sienar spent a considerable future buying 2,112 failed designs of his competitors, looking for new ideas which failed for simple reasons which could be adjusted to his own uses. In their early thirties, Tarkin convinced Sienar to join him in an attempt to take control of the planet Zonama Sekot. Tarkin hoped to gather one of the unusual Sekotan starships, but he also hoped to eliminate Sienar and gain favor with Supreme Chancellor Palpatine. He appointed Sienar a Commander, and gave him a small fleet led by the Admiral Korvin. Tarkin also assigned Ke Daiv as Sienar's assistant, a move which told Sienar he would be expendable if the mission failed. Until the end, though, Sienar was unaware that he was already expendable. He convinced the Blood Carver that Tarkin was only working for the good of humankind, and was able to turn Ke Daiv away from his assassination attempt. In the end, Ke Daiv was unable to recover a Sekotan starship, and Tarking decided to attack Zonama Sekot and take control of it himself. Sienar struggled against Tarkin's plans, until the planet disappeared into hyperspace. Both Tarkin and Sienar were disgraced in the eyes of Palpatine, but both worked to turn the loss to their own advantage. Years later, Raith developed the basic outline of the T.I.E. starfighter, which became the design basis for the TIE fighter and its follow-on fighters. Unfortunately for Raith, his success created many jealous rivals, and it was believed that one of these rivals arranged for Raith's assassination during the height of the Galactic Civil War.

this male Sullustan was the co-pilot of the modified Lantillian Deluxe short hauler, the Long Shot. He was obvious from most Sullustans by his gaudy clothing, which is considered tasteless by some of his acquiantences. Siene Symm is a natural con artist, and made his living taking credits from whoever was fool enough to part with them. When the Empire abducted him, Siene Symm was put to work as a starship mechanic. This provided him with invaluable skills and a burning hatred for the Empire. When he escaped and joined Ixsthmus's crew, he threw himself into this new line of work with great pleasure, which impressed Ixsthmus. Siene Symm's cunning side has also endeared him to his new employer, for it helps make negotiations easier.
this Twi'leki female, a member of the Rha clan, was abducted by Bib Fortuna and sent to the best dancing schools in preparation for her presentation to Jabba the Hutt. Sienn was younger than her companion, Oola, and Fortuna's instructors had cultivated the image that Sienn was young and vulnerable.

this band was popular during the height of the Clone Wars. Their transport convoy once ran into a Separatist blockade, and escaped only after Jedi Master Darrus Jeht arrived on the scene. The band was indebted to him, and was able to provide him with tickets to several upcoming shows. Jeht used the tickets to bring his fellow Jedi, Aayla Secura and Trilinae, to one of their concerts.
manufacturers of passive sensor arrays.
developed by Sienar Advanced Systems and overseen by Republic Sienar Systems, this groundbreaking starship ion drive system was the forerunner of the modern twin ion engine system used on Imperial TIE fighters. Designed by Raith Sienar, the SIE-TIE system employed microparticle accelerators to agitate ionized gasses to relativistic velocities. One of the key features of the SIE-TIE was the fact that it had independently articulated ion stream deflector manifolds for pinpoint maneuvering accuracy. Like the modern TIE fighters, the SIE-TIE drew power from onboard solar panels.
this Corellian man and his brother, Hirsch, were combat veterans of a mercenary gang that was active during the early years of the New Order. When the Empire began to extend its power, the Sif brothers "retired" to Talus, where they established their own mercenary crew of Trandoshans.
this Corellian woman was believed to have once been an Imperial spy, active during the height of the Galactic Civil War. Her primary role was to infiltrate the Alliance and report back on any information that might be useful. Sometime after the Battle of Yavin, it was learned that Erran was actually working for the Hutts, stealing information from both the Alliance and the Empire. She fled Corellia and went into hiding on Talus, where she was protected by her two brothers, Hirsch and Doak.

this planet, the primary world in the Sif'kric System, was the home of the Sif'krie race.
this alien race was native to the planet Sif'kric. They were involved in a feud with the Frezhlix which began shortly after the Battle of Endor and lasted for thext fifteen years.

it was believed that this being - a Jedi Knight of small renown - placed the first order for the cloned soldiers developed by the Kaminoans for the Army of the Republic. The order was placed around the time of the Battle of Naboo, directly to Lama Su himself, despite the fact that Master Sifo-Dyas was supposedly dead at that time. The Kaminoans believed that Master Sifo-Dyas hand-picked Jango Fett to serve as the genetic basis for the clone army, admiring his bounty hunting skills, discpline, and incredible attention to details. Yoda later revealed to Obi-Wan Kenobi that Master Sifo-Dyas had, in fact, placed the order for the clone army. Sifo-Dyas had foreseen the disenchantment of both Qui-Gon Jinn and his Master, Count Dooku, and realized that the Old Republic was going to experience a period of conflict. He had also seen the Jedi Order retreat within itself, becoming self-absorbed with its own neutrality. Sifo-Dyas became one of Dooku's closest friends, and Dooku's plans were something that he agreed with, but couldn't act upon. In secret, however, and without the consent of the Jedi Council, Master Sifo-Dyas traveled to Kamino to order the clones. An investigation on Kamino revealed more about Sifo-Dyas' plans, including physical evidence of his presence on the planet. Unfortunately, these investigations also led to the discovery that Count Dooku had murdered Sifo-Dyas shortly after the initial order was placed, allowing Dooku to choose the clone template: Jango Fett.

The Sigma-class shuttle was eventually replaced by the more powerful Lambda-class shuttle. It was armed with a pair of turret-mounted laser cannons.
Sign of the Tri-Forked Tongue
this seedy tavern was located in the underworld of the planet Coruscant, during the last years of the Old Republic.

It was manned by a crew of 23,684, with 1,975 gunners, 2,000 slaves, 1,600 droids, and could transport 8,803 troops and 1,500 pilots. It was armed with 125 heavy turbolaser batteries, 200 blaster cannons, 80 proton missile tubes, 15 ion cannons, and 15 tractor beam emplacements. The World Devastators were disabled by Luke Skywalker and R2-D2 when R2 was able to tap into the Master Command Codes and take control of the ships. R2 then programmed the World Devastators to destroy themselves.
