When Huxley tried to bully Mara Jade Skywalker into surrendering 500,000 credits from Talon Karrde, Sinker was ordered to take Mara's lightsaber. Mara used the Force to ignite the weapon in his hands, then move it about wildly while he tried to control it. This distraction allowed Mara's husband, Luke Skywalker, to arrive on the scene. After the Skywalkers gained control of the situation, Sinker was forced to turn the lightsaber back over to Mara.

this man, a farmer from the planet Nez Peron, married Mirith Sinn. He was elected to speak for the farmers of his nation, in an effort to convince the planetary government to align with the New Republic. When Imperial forces demanded that Jahren provide them with supplies, he refused, and was executed for hindering their efforts.
this strikingly beautiful, red-haired woman was the leader of the New Republic's forces in the sector of space controlled by the Imperial garrison on Phaeda. Her base of operations was on Phaeda itself. A one-time native of the planer Nez Peron, she was married to Jahren Sinn when Imperial forces decided to stop at his farm for supplies. They tried to take what they wanted from Jahren, but he refused. The Imperial troops shot him dead on the spot, and Mirith escaped only because the troops were too busy stealing supplies to notice. She dedicated her life to the destruction of the Empire, joining the Alliance just before the Battle of Endor, and rising quickly to the rank of Commander. However, her skills were more in Intelligence and counter-insurgence rather than battle tactics. When Tem Merkon told her about the existence of Kir Kanos, she decided to bring the former Imperial into her organization. She was met with resistance from Massimo, who challenged her to a duel. When Colonel Shev discovered location of her stronghold on Phaeda, she tried to rally her troops but instead sent part of her force too far. She ignored the warnings of her second-in-command, Sish Sadeet, and nearly lost the battle. Kir Kanos took control of the fight, quickly dispatching Shev's stormtroopers. She offered to get him off-planet on the Millennium Falcon, for she was a friend of Han Solo. Kanos declined, and Sinn set about moving her forces to Collo Fauale. She also donned a cloak and tried to draw Imperial forces away from Kanos' escape, hoping to use Merkon's treacherous double-cross to her advantage. She was captured in Kanos' place, but was severely tortured by General Wessel's forces and Carnor Jax himself. After Jax let her go, she followed Kanos to Yinchorr where she and Sish Sadeet eliminated Blim before he could kill Kanos. They then tried to take Jax alive, but Kanos killed him in combat. When Sish Sadeet tried to kill Kanos for not keeping Jax alive, Kanos also killed Sadeet in defense. He then left Yinchorr to plan his next move. Mirith, angered by the loss of Jax and Sadeet, vowed to hunt down and destroy Kanos. She employed the services of Grappa the Hutt, in an effort to locate and eliminate Kanos. While inhis employ, she discovered that Grappa held the real Feena D'Asta captive. Mirith's fiance had done business with Feena's father. She tried to free D'Asta, and was assisted in her rescue by a cloaked assassin. However, Mirith was confronted by Grappa himself, who had learned from Massimo that she was secretly trying to break Grappa's piracy ring which had been plaguing New Republic ships. Grappa had both Mirith and Massimo turned over to the Zanibar for betraying his trust. She was rescued from certain death by Kir Kanos, and they left Massimo to die a traitor's death. They then fled the Zanibar camp, and Sinn was rescued by Kennede's son. She later rescued Kanos from Grappa the Hutt, when she imprisoned Grappa and recovered the real Feena D'Asta. Mirith then contacted the Baron D'Asta and returned his daughter, then helped Kanos eliminate Xandel Carivus. She tried to convince the Baron to side with the New Republic, but he chose to lead his sector of space by himself. They did remain friends, however. She met with a similar failure when she tried to convince Kir Kanos to stay with her. He chose to leave, knowing in his heart that he would always be an Imperial while she was loyal to the Republic.

Siolo Ur Manka
this Twi'lke Jedi Master left Corusant for the Jentares System more than seventy years before the Battle of Naboo, in an effort to separate himself from the rest of the galaxy and meditate on the Force. During the time he spent at the Jedi Temple, he was considered among the best Jedi warriors of the time. However, just before leaving for Jentares, Siolo Ur Manka renounced his lightsaber and set out to contemplate a purer technique. Darth Sidious ordered his apprentice, Darth Maul, to assassinate Siolo Ur Manka, but the Twi'lek managed to disarm Darth Maul with little more than a wooden stick. It was rumored that this defeat caused Maul to develop his two-bladed lightsaber, since the single-bladed weapon he had used against Siolo Ur Manka had been ineffective. Rather than creating a single weapon, though, Maul welded two lightsabers together at the base, creating a weapon with the element of surprise. Maul returned to the Jentares System shortly afterward, to complete his mission. When Siolo Ur Manka again bested Maul in combat, the Sith apprentice activated the second blade and killed the Twi'lek. Darth Sidious was impressed with Maul's skills and his creation of the two-bladed lightsaber.

this was the name of the hillside country that surrounded the Anaxes Citadel, on the planet Anaxes. Most of the Sirpar Hills were covered with the estates of families whose members had provided generations of officers to the naval defense of the galaxy, both during the Old Republic and the New Order.

Lowbacca's younger sister, she was a free spirit who didn't want to conform to her family's idea of normal. Although she didn't resent her brother's ability with the Force, she chafed at the idea of simply working in the local factories on Kashyyyk. In open defiance of her family's wishes, she shaved her fur in intricate patterns in order to make herself different. She hoped that her parents would realize her desires for an adventurous life. Sirra wanted to spend her life among the stars, much like her uncle Chewbacca. She shared this dream with her best friend, Raabakyysh. Sirra was shaken by the disappearance of Raaba, who was never found after the young Wookiee tried to prove her adulthood by venturing into the lower jungles without Sirra. Shortly afterward, Sirra decided that it was time to prove her own adulthood. Lowie returned to Kashyyyk to accompany her, but their plans were cut short by the Shadow Academy's raid on the Wookiee factories. The Imperials succeeded in gaining essential computer and starship components used by the New Republic, but Lowie and Sirra had their own success. They battled the Nightsister Vonnda Ra in the depths of Kashyyyk's jungles, and both Sirra and Vonnda Ra fell into the clutches of a syren plant. With the help of Jacen Solo and Tenel Ka, Lowie managed to rescue his sister before the plant captured her. Vonnda Ra was eaten by the plant, but not before Sirra managed to obtain some of the tough, silky fibers from the plant's interior. Thus, she had proved her bravery to Lowie and her parents, and was recognized as an adult for her bravery. As the struggle with the Diversity Alliance intensified, Sirrakuk was captured and held on Ryloth with Lusa, Lowbacca, and several other non-human friends of Jaina and Jacen Solo. They were eventually freed.
this female Chagrian earned the respect of Hugo Bartyn as a boat captain on the planet Lamaredd, many centuries before the Galactic Civil War. After toiling for nearly two decades as an underpaid laborer, she finally earned the right to pilot her own ship. However, she was not blind to the fact that Bartyn was a pro-human bigot who only kept his alien workforce on-hand because they were invaluable assets. Olyeg quietly began to foment unrest among the other non-human ship captains, and was instrumental in staging several work stoppages that attracted the attention of Bartyn. It was Olyeg who demanded a meeting with Bartyn, and he was forced to agree to her terms in order to maintain his business. Among the concessions were the ceding of Jotsen's Island to the Union and the opening of large portions of The Ring to non-human inhabitants. Because of her work, Olyeg was named the first chairbeing of the Sailor's Union. However, Bartyn never forgave her for putting him into a bargaining position, and eventually ordered her assassination.

During the height of the Clone Wars, trooper CT-36/732 was the first of his kind to face a JK-series security droid in combat, although it was in a demonstration at the T'Chuk Arena on Coruscant. Sirty was soundly defeated by the droid, known as JK-13, which captured him after a mere twenty seconds of effort. Sirty suffered little physical damage, although his nervous system was overloaded, causing an irregular heart beat for several hours. His experiences earned him the notice of the ARC trooper known as Nate, who was forming a group to accompany Obi-Wan Kenobi and Kit Fisto to Ord Cestus to investigate the production of the JK-series droids. Nate recognized the knowledge Sirty might have, and requested his presence on the team. Sirty helped Kit Fisto and Nate train the commandos of the Desert Wind terrorist group, and was among the survivors who managed to escape their lair when Asajj Ventress sent a group of infiltration droids to destroy them. When Nate's body was not recovered, they feared that Nate had been killed, or had broken the Code and betrayed them all in the first place.

He controlled most of the planet by fear, having sent the Trigon One weapons satellite into orbit around the planet. He wanted Thall Joben and his friends killed for angering him, and so he employed Boba Fett to kill them in the speeder races on Boonta. Fromm, covering all his bases, also planted a bomb on Joben's speeder. When Fett tried to kill Joben during the races, he activated a magnet in order to draw Joben nearer. However, the magnet dislodged Fromm's bomb, and Fett was nearly destroyed. In his anger, Fett captured Sise Fromm and his entire gang, and turned them over to Jabba the Hutt.
this was one of the more common, albeit archaic, names used by Trandoshan hunters. Like most Trandoshan names, it was reserved for males, but could be adopted by those rare females who became hunters. In the Trandoshan language, the name meant "swims through fire", and referred to an ancient Trandoshan test of courage and endurance.
this green-skinned Trandoshan was a member of the New Republic's forces, and was assigned as Mirith Sinn's second-in-command on the planet Phaeda. He had fled Trandosha by stowing away on an Imperial transport, but was left to die on Mokk IX when he was discovered. There, he met up with Mirith Sinn, who nursed him back to health and convinced him to join the New Republic. A suspicious creature, Sadeet thought it very unwise for Sinn to bring Kir Kanos into their group. However, he accepted her orders. This did not stop him from disliking Kanos, especially when the human scoffed at the defenses Sadeet had established to protect their hideout. In the end, Sadeet learned that the real traitor to their operation was Tem Merkon, and after the New Republic had freed Phaeda from Imperial control, he accompanied Mirith Sinn to Yinchorr. She hoped to find Kanos again, and Sadeet hoped to regain an ally. They arrived just in time to eliminate Blim, who was trying to shoot Kanos. Kanos then killed Jax in battle. Sadeet and Sinn had hoped to take Jax alive, in order to extract information about the Empire from him. When Kanos killed him, Sadeet grew angry and tried to attack Kanos. The former Imperial Guard anticipated Sadeet's attack, and speared the Trandoshan with a jab of his double-bladed sword. Sadeet died next to Jax, and Mirith vowed to kill Kanos for the unnecessary death.

this Mon Calamari starship pilot and former oceanographer was enslaved by an Imperial officer named Farvakine and forced to work on the planet Tatooine during the height of the New Order. In order to avoid dying from dehydration, Sissalik - known to his friends as "Slick" - killed his master by slowly adding a poison created from chubas to his personal water supply, and set out on his own. His escape from Tatooine led him to Ando, where he slowly recovered from the variety of health problems he suffered in Tatooine's dry climate. He eventually took a job working on the Nanda's Luck, despite the obstacles he faced as a Mon Calamarian. He proved to be a hard-working, loyal addition to the crew, attributes which bore themselves out when the Pirate Queen of Ando herself, Pyash Yopayomba, attacked the Nanda's Luck. She offered the vessel's Captain, Bipopa Bogzider, a chance to have the vessel repair in exchange for his surrender. Captain Bippi grudgingly surrendered, at which point Yopayomba cut off his head. She forced Sissalik to go to work for her as the new Captain of the Nanda's Luck, growling that nobody who worked for her ever surrendered, no matter what the situation. Sissalik once again found himself an indentured servant, as well as the unwitting accomplice in a grand scheme. Yopayomba had been led to believe that the Imperial governor of Ando would pay her handsomely for starting a civil war between the Aquala and the Quara, a war which the Empire could use to fully subjugate the Aqualish. Her plans failed, though, when Sissalik reprogrammed the autopilot on the Nanda's Luck, ramming the ship into Pyash's own flagship, the Majestic. All hands on board, including Sissalik himself, were killed in the explosion.
this golden-skinned Firrerreo youth was one of the many students of the Force who were training at the Jedi Temple on Coruscant during the height of the Clone Wars. He was one of the many students who participated in the Apprentice Tournament, and was known for the way he mixed lightsaber combat with other types of martial arts. Sisseri made it to the third round of the tournament, but was defeated by Tallisibeth Enwandung-Esterhazy. Scout, as she preferred to be called, distracted Sisseri's initial lightsaber attack by throwing a cup of muja juice in his face, then launching into him with a melee attack. They rolled across the floor for several minutes before Scout managed to get Sisseri in a choke-hold, then pinned his arm with a painful nerve pinch. Writhing in pain, Sisseri was forced to yield.

this Corellian scout and information dealer worked from a base on the planet Darlyn Boda during the height of the Galactic Civil War. He was known for his encyclopedic knowledge of the hideaways and boltholes found in the Greater Javin area of the galaxy, and was often approached by beings who needed a place to hide to escape from the law. He willingly took their credits and gave them excellent information, but he made no guarantees that he wouldn't sell information on their whereabouts after six months had passed. It was believed that Sistek provided information on the locations of both Salmakk and Clabburn the Younger for Figg Excavations. When a group of freelance agents began sniffing for clues on the reappearance of Salmakk and Clabburn, Sistek provided only minimal information before he was murdered by FiggEx goons. As he died, he gave the agents the name of Barseth Gynes as his contact at FiggEx.
Sisters of the Crimson Mark
founded by the Aquar known as Vilhona, this band of female Aquar dedicated themselves to disrupting the operations of Nexcore Mining Corporation on the planet Velusia. Vilhona herself had been summarily fired and dumped into the lowest levels of Mount Hollow when it was discovered that NMC had tried to monopolize the mining of Velusia's seas, and Vilhona knew too much to keep her around. The Sisters rose up, opposing NMC's abuse of the Aquar people and its control of Velusia. Most of their crimes were small, but over time they began to cause real trouble for NMC.

this was a noted demagogue from the early years of the Old Republic.
this ancient race of insect-like humanoids was native to the planet Korriban, and was isolated from the rest of the Old Republic for many millennia. The history of the Sith race can be trced back to a point some 100,000 years before the onset of the Galactic Civil War. As a race, they were characterized by dark, red skin, cranial horns, and long bony chins. There were several subspecies of Sith, each with its own place in their society. Some were slaves, other were warriors, and the highest caste of all were the magicians. Because they lived in a remote sector of the ancient galaxy, the Sith were unknown to the rest of the galaxy until a group of Jedi outcasts discovered their existence. These so-called Dark Jedi were banished from the Old Republic and the Jedi order for their desire to learn more about the Dark Side of the Force, and chose to flee across the galaxy rather than be persecuted. Going well beyond the Republic's borders, the Dark Jedi were drawn to Korriban. The Sith who were native to the plabet regarded the Dark Jedi as gods. The Force-sensitive Sith magicians proved to have control over the Dark Side of the Force, and the outcast Jedi took many of their tomes and teachings for further study. Over the millennia, the two groups intermingled, until very little pure Sith blood remained. As a race, the Sith developed a rigid hierarchy of magicians and warriors, with the leadership of the brotherhood falling to the current Dark Lord of the Sith. The Sith wrote expansive volumes on the control and use of the Dark Side, and described incredible manifestations of power. Later, they were able to created amulets and weaponry that could assist the user in controlling the Dark Side. These devices amplified the Dark Side, making the user incredibly powerful. Much of the Sith lore was hidden on various worlds when the ancient Jedi Knights first sought to eradicate the Sith. Some was stored on Korriban, some on the moon of Yavin 4. The last remained true-blooded Sith were wiped out by Exar Kun during the Great Sith War, when he stole their life energy in an effort to defend his fortress on Yavin 4 against the forces of the Old Republic.

this ancient brotherhood of Jedi Knights split from the ranks of the "lightsiders" when access to the ancient Sith lore was forbidden. The Jedi Council feared that the knowledge of harnessing the Dark Side of the Force would be twisted and used to perform many evil acts. The so-called Dark Jedi fled the Republic and established themselves on Korriban, where they learned a great deal about the Dark Side of the Force from the natives, who called themselves the Sith. The two groups shared information and interbred, until the term Sith became synonymous with the Dark Side of the Force. The ancient Sith brotherhood was believed to have been defeated during the Great Sith War, many millennia before the Galactic Civil War. However, adherents to their teachings continued to grow and prosper beyond the control of either the Jedi Order or the Old Republic. The modern Sith brotherhood was founded some 2,000 years before the Battle of Yavin, by a rogue Jedi Knight who yearned to learn more of the Dark Side of the Force. Together with about 50 followers, this rogue fled the Old Republic and established his own Sith order. With galactic domination on their agenda, these new Sith Lords quickly became distrustful of each other and abusive of their dark side powers. In a short time, they had nearly wiped themselves out again. One Sith Lord remained, a man by the name of Darth Bane. He swore that the Sith would never again vanish from the galaxy, but also made certain that they never grew beyond their means. He established a rigid code by which there could only be a single Sith Lord and a single Sith apprentice. When the Lord finally expired, or was murdered in his sleep, his current apprentice was promoted and allowed to take his own student. Darth Bane's Rule of Two offended many other Sith Lords, but these splinter groups invariably wiped themselves out before becoming a threat to his power. The pairing of Master and Apprentice continued for many centuries until Darth Plagueis rose to power. Plagueis was one of the most powerful Sith Masters, and was believed to have found a way to control the midi-chlorians. It was said that he could manipulate them into creating life. However, after learning of this power, Plagueis's own apprentice, Darth Sidious, chose to kill his Master and take his rightful place as Sith Lord. Sidious then took Darth Maul as his apprentice, and hoped to take control of the galaxy by bringing the Old Republic down from the inside. The slow build-up of Sith power had begun to occlude the Light Side, and the Jedi Order was unaware of the growing threat of the Sith. When Darth Maul was destroyed by Obi-Wan Kenobi during the Battle of Naboo, Sidious' plans were briefly thwarted. However, he found the charismatic former Jedi, Count Dooku, to be a worthy replacement. Just a few years later, Sidious revealed to the galaxy that he was also Supreme Chancellor Palpatine, and it a series of deft maneuvers, he destroyed the Jedi Order and established Darth Vader as his new apprentice. Vader, whose former identity as Anakin Skywalker placed him in the center of a Jedi prophecy as the Chosen One, should have destroyed Sidious and taken his place as Sith Master. However, in fulfillment of the prophecy, Vader chose to return to the Light Side of the Force before killing Sidious. Following the deaths of Vader and Palpatine at the Battle of Endor, and with the destruction of Palpatine's clones on Byss, the order of the Sith was exterminated. This, coupled with the fact that the Jedi Order had been destroyed years before, finally brought the Force back into balance, as the final act of the Jedi prophecy. Interestingly enough, it was the Sith who realized that the Force was more than just light and dark, and that a complete understanding of the Force could not be achieved without embracing both aspects as a single entity. Although their ultimate use of the Force was evil, the Sith were perhaps closer to a true union with the Force than the Jedi Order of the time.

this was the ancient language of the extinct Sith race, and was spoken mainly on the planet Korriban.
this was the name used to describe any creature which had been altered by Sith rituals and magicks into something hideous and terrifying. These creatures were bred from naturally-evolved stock, but were heavily tainted by the Dark Side of the Force.
this unusual amulet was discovered on the planet Dathomir during the era of the New Republic. The center of the amulet was surrounded by six triangular wedges made from an unknown metal, and the entire abattar hung from a thin, silver chain. When worn around the neck, the abattar felt exceptionally heavy for its size, but it gave the wearer the ability to communicate in any language. Over a short period of time, however, the wearer became weak and unable to remove the abattar. If the device was not taken from the user's neck, there was a good chance they would die. Records showed that the abattar was among the many Sith artifacts that were aboard the Jedi training vessel Chu'unthor when it crashed onto Dathomir.
this was the name given to the training facility established by the Sith on the planet Korriban, during the build-up to the Great Sith War. The facility continued to operate during the war, producing multitudes of soldiers and warriors imbued with the Dark Side of the Force.
this hidden storehouse of knowledge was the repository of all information known to the Sith. It was formed shortly after Darth Bane established the Sith brotherhood.
Sith Arts Academy
this training facility was established by the Dark Jedi who controlled the planet Thule.
Sith Assassin Pistol
this ancient blaster weapon was developed by the Sith as a tool for dispatching an opponent without revealing one's true identity until absolutely necessary. The power output of the pistol can be regulated to cause a quick or lingering death, depending on the desire of the Sith using it. These weapons were common during the era of the Great Sith War.
Sith Assault Gun
this was a specially-created blaster carbine that was imbued with the Dark Side of the Force by the ancient Sith, during the decades leading up to the Great Sith War.
Sith Battle Cruiser
this immense, 215-meter-long warship was developed by the ancient Sith Empire to serve as the flagship of its naval fleets. Each Battle Cruiser was armed with six blaster cannons and three concussion missile launchers, and required a crew of 25 officers and gunners to operate. It could transport up tp 850 troopers and 5,000 metric tons of cargo, and was equipped with a Class-4 hyperdrive.
according to information that appeared on the Cularin System's HoloNet nodes during the height of the Clone Wars, the Sith Battlelords were created by Darth Rivan on Almas, thousands of years earlier. Darth Rivan supposedly created the battlelords to oversee the training of Sith warriors, and to instill fear in his enemies. These impartial beings brooked no insubordination, not from the warriors themselves and not from their superior officers. Each battlelord was psychically connected to the warriors and officers under their command, and could use the Dark Side of the Force to demand compliance in one or all of their charges. Rumors held that the battlelords were first created and tested on Almas because of its remote location. In an arcane ritual, a battlelord candidate was laid out on an altar and cut open. The blood was allowed to flow from their body, while a Sith Lord uttered incantations and their subordinate troops marched through the pool of blood. In this way, if the candidate survived the rest of the process, the troops were bound to the battlelord. In order to ensure complete loyalty, the magic involved in the creation of a battlelord gave him or her the ability to transfer any pain they felt to one of their troops. This not only ensured that the troops didn't try to kill their battlelord, but it also ensured that they fought with all their energy to protect the battlelord during combat. Although Darth Rivan managed to perfect the entire creation process, he was betrayed by his apprentice before he could create more than a few battlelords.
Sith Elite Warbot
these combat droids were developed by the ancient Sith to serve as part of their ground-based armies. Individual Elite warbots were used for both training and active combat, with stun blaster and stun batons used on training versions. Full combat versions were armed with a blaster pistol mounted on each arm, and carried a Sith sword as a melee weapon. The armor of the Elite warbot was alchemically treated, giving it additional protection in combat. Unfortunately, they were very expensive to produce, and never found widespread use in the army. Like most other ancient Sith droids, most of the Elite warbots disappeared after the Great Hyperspace War.
