this was the hissing, sibilant language of the Duinuogwuin race. It was virtually unintelligible, and unpronounceable, to other races.
a Force-sensitive race of huge, snakelike creatures, the Duinuogwuin averaged up to 50 meters in length, with multiple pairs of legs on a scaled body. They also had gossamer wings and floppy, elephantine ears. The wings of the Duinuogwuin were vestigial in nature, virtually incapable of lifting their immense bodies. However, the Duinuogwuin were observed flying about by beating these wings, and many scientists theorized that there was a natural form of "repulsorlift organ" in the body of a Duinuogwuin that assisted with flight. The only time it appeared that the wings of a Duinuogwuin were of any use was during a flight through the vacuum of space, and environment that the Duinuogwuin were entirely capable of inhabiting. These beings earned the nickname Star Dragons because of their appearance and their penchant for traveling the galaxy. Their homeworld was unknown, but they appeared in almost any environment, even the vacuum of deep space. They were an honorable race, and there were rumors of the very ancient Duinuogwuin serving as Jedi Knights. It was also rumored among the xenoarchaeologists who studied them that a large percentage of young dragons were born as wild, vicious beasts. Each Duinuogwuin was monosexual, and they procreated by combining a haploid gamete with that from another dragon. Because of this, many newborns were non-intelligent brutes that had to be destroyed or abandoned. For this reason, many Duinuogwuin studied genetics and heredity, in an effort to prevent the slow degeneration of their race. No being knew where it was, but the Star Dragons maintained a hidden graveyard where they went to die. Several scientists observed the Duinuogwuin expelling super-hot belches of gas that could scorch plastisteel.

this was a period during the early part of the Old Republic, when the Duinuogwuin race first made contact with the rest of the galaxy. An intense war broke out on Coruscant between both sides, until Supreme Chancellor Fillorean and the Star Dragon known as Borz'Mat'oh were able to work out a peaceful settlement to the hostilities. To commemorate the end of the conflict, both sides founded the University of Coruscant, hoping to provide greater education and promote greater tolerance throughout the galaxy.
this brief war between the Duinuogwuin and Gotal races occurred several decades before the Clone Wars. A resolution to the hostiles was mediated by Tra's M'ins and Jorus C'baoth.
a Mistryl warrior, she was part of Manda D'ulin's team during the middle years of the New Order. When the team was paid to secure the Hammertong project, the mission went sour and Manda was killed. Shada and Karoly D'ulin managed to recover the Hammertong, but were forced to Tatooine in a stolen strike cruiser. In trying to secure passage, Shada impersonated Brea Tonnika and went into the Mos Eisley cantina just before Ben Kenobi and Luke Skywalker arrived to book passge to Alderaan. In a bizarre twist of fate, the real Brea Tonnika had left just three hours before Shada arrived. This tipped off Riij Winward, who was on guard at the Mos Eisley jail. He let Shada free, but could not get her to give up the Hammertong. She eventually found a way to get a section of the weapon off Tatooine and into the hands of the Alliance. Shada later became the bodyguard of the smuggler Mazzic, using her sharp-edged skills and knife-like fingernail inserts to keep Mazzic safe. The Mistryl society had allowed her to be employed by Mazzic, hoping to obtain wealth for Emberlene as Mazzic's organization grew. When the smuggler's company failed to live up to their expectations, the Mistryl sent Karoly to intercept Shada and return her to Emberlene for re-assignment. Shada balked at this, and a struggle ensued. Shada managed to defeat Karoly and flee from both Mazzic and the Mistryl. She then tried to meet up with Leia Organa-Solo to offer her services as a warrior to the New Republic. She tried calling, but her calls were always rerouted. So, she infiltrated a secret meeting between Leia and Talon Karrde at the Orowood Tower, but she ended up working for Karrde as part of the mission to find out where Jorj Car'das was hiding. After finding Car'das on Exocron and defeating Rei'kas, Shada learned from Car'das the true history of Emberlene. He offered her a datacard that contained the names of the mercenaries who destroyed the planet, as well as offering a second datacard. Shada decided that it was time the Mistryl moved on from their needs for revenge, and took the second card. It contained histories of Flim, Grodin Tierce, and Moff Disra, which she and Karrde returned to Admiral Pellaeon to use. After the Caamas Incident was resolved and a peace treaty was placed on the table, Shada agreed to work for the new Intelligence agency Karrde set up to share information between the Empire and the New Republic. Shada remained loyal to Karrde, and accompanied him to Yavin 4 during the rescue of the Jedi students from the praxeum on the moon.

this was the name given to the Noghri meeting places found in each clan's land, on the planet Honoghr. Each of the dukhas was decorated with the clan's genealogical history, with the decorations blending into the functional aspects of the structure. On the exterior, pillars of polished wood taken from entire tree trunks held up the roof. The entire structure was held together by a metal band that ran around the outside of the pillars. A dukha measured about twenty meters in diameter and about four meters in height. A conical roof added another three meters. Entrance to the dukha's interior was through a pair of wooden doors. The interior of a dukha was no less impressive, with the main dais - known as the High Seat - standoing about two-thirds of the way to the back. In the middle of the room, a huge concave dish was suspended from each of the exterior poles. Lights hidden along the edge of the dish pointed into the bowl and up toward the ceiling, providing a way to light the interior with diffused light.

a Mistryl warrior, she was Manda D'ulin's sister and a part of Manda's team shortly before the Battle of Yavin. When the team was paid to secure the Hammertong project, the mission went sour and Manda was killed. Karoly and Shada D'ukal managed to recover the Hammertong, but were forced to Tatooine in a stolen strike cruiser. In trying to secure passage, Karoly impersonated Shenni Tonnika and went into the Mos Eisley cantina just before Ben Kenobi and Luke Skywalker appeared, trying to book passage to Alderaan. In a bizarre twist of fate, the real Shenni Tonnika had left just three hours before Karoly arrived. This tipped off Riij Winward, who was on guard at the Mos Eisley jail. He let Karoly free, but could not get her to give up the Hammertong. Karoly was later sent to Borcorash to "recover" Shada, for the Mistryl felt that Mazzi'c organization wasn't helping them anymore. Shada defeated her in a brief struggle and escaped. Karoly continued to pursue her, nearly catching her on Coruscant before Shada joined Talon Karrde. Karoly continued her pursuit, although she had very little to go on. She stowed away on the Lady Luck when Lando Calrissian, Han Solo, Lobot, and Moegid traveled to Bastion to try and recover a copy of the Caamas Document. There, she stumbled across Zothip and his team, and decided to see if she could settle an old score with them. Instead, she found herself in the midst of a power struggle between Zothip and Moff Disra. When Zothip and his men tried to fight their way out, Karoly took the opportunity to attack. She and Major Tierce took out several of the pirates, and Karoly managed to kill Zothip with a knife to his spine just as he tried to assault Disra. After Control managed to take over the Cavrilhu Pirates, Disra and Flim - disguised as Thrawn - offered Karoly and the Mistryl a chance to serve the new Empire. Karoly agreed to bring Paloma D'asima to Yaga Minor, in order to discuss an alliance. The alliance was killed before it could be created, though, when Admiral Pellaeon arrived on the scene and exposed Disra, Tierce, and Flim for their true selves. Karoly then accompanied D'asima back to Emberlene.
