this swoop gang, founded on the planet Stend VI, was started by Jeng Seth. They have since relocated to the Hook Nebula. (GG9)

this pendant is worn by members of the Guild of Vindicators. (CSWDW)

this Krish worked as a bodyguard to Treytis Prash, until he was shot and killed by Celia Durasha. Celia was led by Thune to believe that Prash was a bounty hunter holding her partner, Kaj Nedmak. This allowed Thune to eliminate the two bodyguards and capture Prash. (SWJ14)

an aromatic plant that Wuher uses to create the perfect liqueur for Jabba the Hutt. (TME)

Skustell Cluster
this collection of stars and systems was known as the home of the Ongree race. (SWDB)

Meeka Reen's lieutenant, he was placed in charge of guarding Luke Skywalker and Leia Organa when they were taken from Ryko Vant in the wastes of Jerne. He was killed on Adony Station during the attempt to open the vault containing the eternity crystal. The vault had been rigged by Darth Vader to explode and kill Luke and Leia. They escaped, but Skutch was not so lucky. (CSWDW)

Skutu, Trel
known in Imperial circles as "Scourge," Trel was a flight leader for a wing of TIE Fighters during the Galactic Civil War. He believed that the starfighter and its pilot were the real victors in a space battle, not the slow capital ships. (MTSE)

this was the name of a noted Ssi-ruuk individual. (UANT)

Sky Bogey
this was a term used by the spice miners of Kessel to describe the planet's single moon. (GORW)

Sky Cannon
this strange device was located within Mount Yeroc, on Tahlboor. The cannon resembled a huge spotlight, and generated an intense beam of energy when activated. The cannon was controlled by Chief Nimodro for many years. Although he knew that his ancestors had used the cannon to communicate with the planet, he never really understood what they meant. He knew that the beam of energy was blindingly bright, and seemed to be most powerful near the planet's surface. The true use of the cannon was eventually revealed by R2-D2 and C-3PO, when the droids were in the service of Counselor Harthan. Shortly before an all-out war between the Troobs and Hobors, R2-D2 determined how to activate the cannon's communication functions. He used it to project a huge image of C-3PO above the surface of the planet, an image which was visible and audible several miles away. The cannon was actually built by an ancient, though highly technical, Tahlboorian civilization. They designed it to harness the power of the planet's inner core to carve the surface of the planet to their own design, hoping to create a paradise for themselves. They had planned to use the cannon to adjust the orbits of Tahlboor's moons, thereby modifying the tides, but they did not survive to see this goal achieved. Jake Harthan also learned of the sky cannon's abilities, and sought to undermine his father's work in order to gain control of the cannon. Thanks to the droids, he failed, and the Hobors and Troobs moved closer to achieving peace. (DRPC)

Sky City
this city is located on the northern-most end of the Landra continent of Lianna. (ML)

Sky Fire
this was the Langhesi name for the huge bolts of lightning which were called down by the boras and the Jentari during the process of forging their seeds. (RP)

Sky Mine
this form of explosive weapon was developed during the last decades of the Old Republic. Sky mines were deployed in orbit by a delivery ship, then activated. They were given rough targetting parameters, often with transponder code masks, and then hunted down their targets. They had excellent maneuverability, and chased after their target until they ran out of fuel or were destroyed. Since sky mines were mobile, and could lock onto a target of their own volition, starfighter squadrons had to have their missions coordinated with the parameters used to program the mines. (RP)

Sky Ramp
this was one of the primary spaceports on the planet Onderon, located in the city of Iziz, during the years following the Great Sith War. (KOTOR2)

Sky Seraphs
a group of deities worshipped by Doallyn. (TJP)

Sky Slicing
this sport developed on urban planets during the height of the New Order. A one-man event, sky slicing involved "surfing" through the air on a repulsor-equipped platform, using only one's balance to maneuver. (GFT)

Sky Stone
see Um'Tal (HR)

Sky Striker 5000
this modified swoop was produced by Aratech during the height of the Galactic Civil War. Capable of achieving a top speed of 580 kilometers an hour, and with a flight ceiling of 200 meters, the Sky Striker 5000 allowed its rider to "surf" through the air in the sport of sky slicing. This small vehicle was controlled by pressure from the feet and legs, and maneuverability was based primarily on balance. A pair of magnetic boots was required to maintain contact with the swoop, and a leg rope was attached to prevent the platform from getting away from a rider. (GFT)

Sky Swooper
this repulsor-augmented hang glider was designed and manufactured by Nen-Carvon for the Empire., and was used to travel above the jungles of Aris. They have a twin blaster mounted on the frame, above the flier's head. The Imperial forces occupying Aris found sky swoopers invaluable transports. (RM, ROE)

Sky Yards-class Herdship
this Ithorian herdship was similar in most respected to the Manollium-class herdship, but it was solely produced by the Ithor-based Ithorian SkyYards corporation. (GMR4)

this is an architectural structure that resembles a group of suspended bridges. Made famous by the Grand Rim Promenade on Cejansij, skyarches span most of the Canyonade and link the opposing sides of the Promenade. The skyarch consists of nine walkways which are held in place without the use of repulsorlift technology. This is what makes them almost unique in the galaxy. There are nine walkways in all, arranged in a diamond pattern. The three middle walkways connect the Promenade, and there are two walkways above and below, then one more above and below those two. The skyarch had been in place for nearly three centuries prior to the Battle of Endor. (SOP)

this was the name of Fadoop's patched-up aircraft, a cargo vessel formed from the discarded parts of many other ships. Han Solo used the Skybarge to show up Grigmin on Saheelindeel, after the showman final annoyed Han too much. At the end of the show, and just for good measure, Han used the Skybarge to smash Grigmin's aging X-222 vessel to the ground. For the spectacle, the Saheelindeeli named the Skybarge the best exhibit of the High Festival. (HSL)

a popular model of racing swoop manufactured by Ubrikkian, the Skybird was designed to compete with the Nebulon-Q and Flare-S swoops. Despite the fact that it could attain speeds of 650 kilometers per hour or more, it was more expensive that the other models and had a flight ceiling of just 35 meters. (RPG)

this Loronar reconnaissance ship found acceptance among galactic scouts, for its design and capabilities allow many scouts to explore new worlds with a great deal of concealment. The SkyBlind is a 21-meter sphere which can carry a pilot and up to seven passengers, along with about fortty cubic meters of cargo. The SkyBlind is shielded, and is armed with a single proton torpedo launcher. The spherical shape allows most long-wave sensor scans to pass around it, providing a measure of stealth. The cargo space is often limited by half, however, because one of the SkyBlind's unique features is the inclusion of a small, spherical landing craft. The landing craft is six meters in diameter, and can transport the SkyBlind's entire crew to the surface of a planet. Where the main SkyBlind ship is an interstellar craft equipped with a hyperdrive, the landing craft is a repulsor-powered module and must have sufficient gravity to operate. The landing craft is air- and watertight, is minimally shielded, and has no weapons. Both the SkyBlind main ship and its landing craft are equipped with sensor-masking technology, allowing them to move into a hostile situation without drawing attention. (GG8)

Skyboat Pirates
this band of pirates terrorized the royal family of Xoman Free, during the years following the Stark Hyperspace War. They were thwarted in their efforts to kidnap the royal princess by Jedi Knight Quinlan Vos and his apprentice, Aayla Secura. (SHW)

SkyCenter Galleria
this amusement center was built on Cloud City by Lando Calrissian and Cojahn after the failure of Hologram Funworld, about 19 years after the Battle of Endor. Lando used the profits from GemDiver Station to build it, and hoped it would be the first of many centers throughout the galaxy. It boasted restaurants, shopping centers, holomazes, experience chambers, and thrill rides. He brought Jaina and Jacen Solo, as well as the other Jedi trainees at Luke Skywalker's praxeum, to Cloud City to try it out and give it a "test-drive." When he arrived, though, he discovered that Cojahn had been murdered by agents of Black Sun, who wished to gain control of the Galleria. (TCC)

a Preybird-class attack ship owned by Mazzic. Its hull was painted to resemble a huge bird of prey surrounded by red flames. Mazzic and his crews performed heavy modifications to the Skyclaw and its twin, the Raptor, acquiring military parts produced by the Empire on the black market in order to augment their capabilities. The ship required a pilot and a gunner to operate, and was armed with a pair of havey laser cannons and two concussion missile launchers. (TLC, LCSB, GMR4)

one of two disguised starfighters used by Manda D'ulin's team of Mistryls. (TME)

this was the affectionate term used by Leia Organa-Solo to describe any child who would be born to Luke Skywalker and Mara Jade Skywalker. (BP)

this was another name for a speederbike. (DRKN)

Skydome Botanical Gardens
a huge terrarium on Coruscant, designed, financed, and built by an Old Republic philanthropist. Ostensibly built to provide the people of the galaxy with a collection of the most wondrous plantlife, much of the Gardens were set aside for research and breeding. Among the "off limits" exhibits was a collection of carnivorous plantlife, which required more than two tons of meat each month. (JS, CCW)

Skydove Freight
this was one of the many legitimate businesses that were owned by Popara the Hutt, during the early years of the New Order. Skydove maintained a warehouse on the planet Endregaad for many years. (TF)

this huge airship was the primary warship of the fleet that protected Exocron from invasion. It was essentially a 200-meter long airspeeder, consisting of a central air-foil spar connected to two huge, finned cylinders. The crew consists of 340 officers and 120 gunners. The gunners handle outdated but nevertheless effective weaponry like 18 projectile cannons, 38 repeating percussion cannons, and 2 static ion field dischargers. These ships are incapable of travelling beyond Exocron's immediate atmosphere, with a flight ceiling of about 10 kilometers. They were escorted by squadrons of Skylark airspeeders, which could be landed in the central spar. (KO)

this rugged, mountainous planet was the homeworld of the S'kytri. During the height of the Clone Wars, the planet was kept free of Separatist control through the valiant efforts of Anakin Skywalker. However, years later, the Empire took control of the planet and renamed it Marat V. The planet was under Imperial control during the height of the Galactic Civil War, with Kharys ruling the world at the order of Darth Vader. However, Luke Skywalker's presence on Skye changed that, as he turned out to be the being who was prophesied to free the S'kytri from Kharys' domination. (LTA1, MCA1, SWI73)

this was another name for the mountain M'Nis, located on the planet Goroth Prime. (GSE)

developed by Sandtek, this small transport craft was designed to carry a pilot and passenger across short distances. (NEGC)

this was Bespin Motors' amateur model of sling racer. It was capable of attaining speeds of 230 kilometers per hour. (SPG)

Skyheist 43v
this was a well-equipped repulsorcraft that was used on many aquatic worlds during the New Order and into the era of the New Republic. (GMR9)

the name given to any of the orbital platforms used by the wealthier residents of Coruscant as a stopover point in travelling from the ground into space. Thet are connected to a planet's surface by a long, flexible, elevator tube. Some were simply small landing pads on which beings could wait for further transport. Others were lavish constructions nearly the size of asteroids. Emperor Palpatine's skyhook was particularly lovely, as it had been created as a botanical refuge from Coruscant's urban buildings. Prince Xizor tried to steal Palpatine's gardener for his own skyhook, Falleen's Fist, but the being had an "unfortunate accident" before his met his new employer. (SE, SSE)

this Imperial-class Star Destroyer was part of the fleet assigned to Han Solo and the Mon Remonda during the hunt for Warlord Zsinj. In the attempt to trap Zsinj at Vahaba, the Crynyd and the Skyhook were assigned to protect the Interdictor cruiser Stellar Web. (SOC)

this was the brand name for Incom's T-16 pleasure/utility craft, originally produced during the last decades of the Old Republic. It was a tropospheric craft, although it shared a number of common systems with the X-Wing T-65. (SW, SHPT)

any craft designed to operate in a planet's atmosphere, such as the Bestinian Skyhopper. (ROTJN)

a form of architecture in which the entire house is levitated on repulsorlifts. The house then appears to float in the sky. (ZHR)

this transport ship was owned by Drev Jalok. The ship was disabled over Altier by Drek Drednar and the Sable III. (SWJ5)

this is generic term that was developed on the city-world of Coruscant. There, skylanes referred to the complex magnetic pathways which were established to regulate traffic moving throughout Imperial City and around the planet. There were a mutlitude of levels of skylanes, and each level was dedicated to a specific direction or speed. Any craft wishing to travel on the planet must have a navigational computer which could be slaved into the skylane's magnetic controls. Once a destination had been selected, the skylane control would move the craft along the magentic pathways, changing levels and directions as needed, until the craft reached its destination. This automated control kept traffic accidents to a minimum, which was important on Coruscant where thousands of craft of every size and ship moved around the planet each hour. (IG1)

this form of combat airspeeder was developed for use by the military police of the planet Exocron. They have a cylindrical shape highlighted by eight wing-like stabilizers. They are equipped with primitive wave-form communications terminals, and are armed with a single projectile cannon and two percussion cannons. (KO)

Skylight Market
located at the very center of the Center Sphere district of Bartyn's Landing, on the planet Lamaredd, this open-air market was the ideal place to purchase exotic or illegal items on the planet. It was named for the fact that it was located beneath the open section of the Sphere. (GMR7)

Skylight Squadron
this group of TIE Fighters served aboard the Allegiance during the defense of Adumar. (SOA)

Skylow, Tor
this former Imperial Navy officer convinced her crew - a group of customs inspectors on tour - to defect. They took over control of their frigate, and placed anyone who chose not to defect into the escape pods. The pods were jettisoned near Travnin, with Skylow informing the authorities of their whereabouts. The Empire responded to the defection by claiming Skylow and her crew cruelly left the Imperials to die. Skylow and her crew then fled to the Yelsain system, where they refitted the frigate and renamed it the Counter Puncher. They turned to waylaying Imperial supply ships, taking their cargoes but leaving the crews alive and intact. The goods they stole were then sold on Yelsain for cheap prices. In return, the natives of Yelsain hid Skylow's team whenever they were pursued. She has had several cyborg implants added to her athletic body, but the exact modifications are not known. She is the prototypical noble pirate, down to her flowing red hair and lavish dress. (GG6)

this planet is located in Skine Sector. It was located at one end of the Five Veils' Tour Route. (GG9)

this Ruurian, a member of the K'zagg colony, was an expert on human history from the Tion Hegemony's pre-Old Republic era, during the early years of the New Order. Skynx was still in his larval stage when Alexsandr Badure approaced him to help translate the log-recorder that Lanni Troujow had recovered from the Queen of Ranroon on Dellalt. His agreement to help Badure came from a yearning to experience a true, human adventure before moving into his pupal stage. In addition to his historical knowledge, Skynx was adept at playing the musical instruments of his people. Skynx proved a valuable asset during the mission to Dellalt, helping to translate the ship's log-recorder and later tricking Gallandro into following him into the Queen of Ranroon's holds. This activated the ship's anti-weapons systems, killing Gallandro before he could kill Han Solo. When the mystery of the Queen of Ranroon was finally uncovered, Skynx left to return to his studies, hoping to complete them before he was forced to spin his cocoon and metamorph into a chroma-wing flier. He also offered Hasti and Badure a job, working with him as transport agents for the university and, after his transformation, as the university's caretakers. Skynx also offered Bollux and Blue Max positions at the university, since they were the only known automatons who had ever interacted with the Guardian Corps. (HSL)

Skynxnex, Arb
this tall, thin human was imprisoned on Kessel as a young man for his involvement with the criminal organization Black Sun. The crime he was arrested for was theft, and he escaped the death sentence because he was young and healthy. He became part of Moruth Doole's spice-smuggling operation. He was assigned to the prison for his long record theft and assassinations, and grew in favor under Doole's watchful eye. Doole used Skynxnex as his liaison to the smugglers who transported loads of spice. Skynxnex was killed shortly Han Solo and Chewie crash-landed on Kessel, when they and Kyp Durron escaped from the mines. (JS, WG, JASB)

Skypath Industries
this textile firm maintained an outlet on Dravian Starport. (GMH)

another combat airspeeder developed for the Exocron Airfleet, it is superior to the Skylark in terms of agility and armament. The Skyraptor is armed with two percussion cannons and four air-to-air rocket launchers. (KO)

Skyreach Hotel
a chain of hotels operated in the Outer Rim Territories. (GG9)

Skyrung Manufacturing
headquartered in the city of Syward, on the planet of Lavisar, this corporation was a licensed builder of Lambda-class shuttles for the Empire. (IF)

Sky-scan Sensor
a portable sensor which can be mounted on high ground and used to monitor the approach of an enemy. (HSR)

Skysitter Restaurant
this was one of the most exclusive restaurants found in Galactic City, on the planet Coruscant, during the last decades of the Old Republic. Only the wealthiest of the galaxy's Senators could afford to eat at the Skysitter, which sat atop a spire in a rotating structure that provided patrons with an expansive view of the city. It was located near the Nicandra Counterrevolutionary Signalmens' Memorial Building. (IWE2)

this is the name given to one of Aratech's light assault ships. The SkySlayer measured 20 meters in length, and was armed with a pair of quad-laser cannons and four blaster cannons. It required a crew of seven. (SH)

the primary mode of transportation used by the Cloud Riders on Aduba-3, a skyspeeder was the frame of an Aratech Peregrine 240 swoop which had been refitted with Nebulon-Q thruster jets. This pairing combined the speed and maneuverability of a swoop with the durability of a landspeeder. The main body of the skyspeeder was protected by an armored nosecone, and a pair of long rails served as landing gear. The Incom T-47 was a prime example of a skyspeeder, when it was modified to employ high-power repulsor engines and a pressurized cabin for high-altitude flight. (MC8, MC9, NEGV, GMR4)

Skytowers Residence
this apartment building, located in the city of Brenn on Genesia, was an Alliance safehouse during the early years of the Galactic Civil War. (FBS)

this was name of the race of tall, winged humanoids native to the planet Skye. Despite being loyal to the Empire during the Galactic Civil War, the S'kytri believed that a being would arrive on Skye and overthrow Kharys the Majestrix and free them. The prophesy had been set down shortly after the Clone Wars, when Obi-Wan Kenobi, Darth Vader, and Anakin Skywalker saved Skye from total destruction. This being turned out to be none other than Luke Skywalker. The average S'kytri was distinguished by its green skin and silvery topknot of hair. In their native language, the name 'S'kytri' literally meant 'Windborn.' (LTA1, MCA1)

this was the spoken language of the S'kytri race. During the height of the New Order, S'kytric was nearly replaced by Basic when the Empire subjugated the planet Skye. However, in the aftermath of the Battle of Endor, S'kytric was one of many forgotten languages embraced by folk singers and artists. (UANT)

this term was developed on Coruscant to describe the shielded traffic lanes which wound through the upper levels of buildings across Galactic City, connecting main traffic lanes with each other. These skytunnels were constructed with openings at specific levels of several buildings, with connecting tunnels between buildings, creating a single pipeline for traffic to move from place to place. Skytunnels were developed to be bombproof, so that terrorists couldn't disrupt traffic flows. They also contained high-level tracking systems to monitor traffic and ensure that vehicles maintained safe speeds. Skytunnels were created to solve two problems. First and most obvious was the continual upward development of Galactic City's spacescraper buildings, which often rose into established traffic lanes. Second was the need to allow traffic to move through private or high-security zones, without allowing access to these zones. (IWE2)

Skywalker Epoch
this was a name used by some historians to describe the modern era of the galaxy, into which Anakin Skywalker and his chidren, Luke and Leia, were born. (TOJC)

Skywalker Lars, Shmi
this woman's family was captured by pirates when she was very young, and sold into slavery. She was passed form owner to owner over nearly three decades before being sold to Gardulla the Hutt. Shmi is best-known as the mother of Anakin Skywalker, although she remembers no man participating in Anakin's conception. Instead, she simply discovered she was pregnant and gave birth to the boy. Being a slave, there was no uproar over the fact that she was unmarried and did not know the father. After Gardulla lost a bet to Watto, Shmi and Anakin became the property of the ornery Toydarian. As Anakin grew, shmi knew that there was something special about her son. She hid as much of it as she could from Watto, hoping that the beast wouldn't use Anakin to his advantage. When Qui-Gon Jinn travelled to Tatooine, Shmi understood that Anakin was to leave with him. She could no longer hold the boy back from his destiny. When Anakin won the Boonta Eve podrace, Qui-Gon managed to win the boy in a bet with Watto, but was unable to gain Shmi's freedom. She remained behind on Tatooine, hoping to see her young son again someday. Five years later, Shmi's freedom was purchased by a gruff man named Cliegg Lars, who had fallen in love with her. Cliegg and his son, Owen, devised a plan with Shmi's help, in which they tricked Watto into trading Shmi for an intact Tobal lens. It was then that Watto admitted Shmi had been moreor less free since Anakin left Tatooine, since Watto had deactivated her slave transmitter shortly afterward. He feared that Shmi would wander aimlessly off in her sorrow, and blow herself up. When Cliegg asked her to marry him, Shmi agreed. She found that she loved Cliegg, as well as his young son Owen, and wanted to share their lives. For five years they lived in relative bliss on the Lars moisture farms, although Shmi kept a vigil every night, hoping that Anakin would return from the stars. Just before the onset of the Clone Wars, Tusken Raiders began attacking the outlying moisture farms. One morning, Shmi went out to pick mushrooms from the moitsure vaporators, but was captured by the Tuskens on her way home. She was brutally tortured for more than a month, holding onto her memories of Anakin in an effort to remain alive. When Anakin finally arrived on Tatooine, drawn to his mohter's pain through the Force, he was able to free her from bondage. However, Shmi's injuries were too great, and she died in the Tusken camp. In his anger, Anakin killed the entire Tusken clan. He then collected Shmi's body and returned it to the Lars homestead. Shmi was buried next to Cliegg's first wife and parents. Note that a story in Star Wars Insider, issue 77, indicates that Shmi died twelve years before the Clone Wars. After Cliegg's death, the headstones on the Lars moisture farm were removed by Owen Lars, who claimed that no one needed to know where Shmi was buried. Note that Star Wars Insider magazine, issue 80, claims that Owen told Luke Skywalker about Shmi, because his last name came from hers. (SW1, IG1, AOTC, TG, SWI77, SWI80)

Skywalker Technical Maintenance Service
a ruse used by R2-D2 to hide from the Imperial stormtroopers in Mos Eisley, he and C-3PO posed as maintenance droids from this false start-up company in order to gain access to a machine shop. They told the owner that they would fix his energy lathe for free, as part of a one-time, promotional offering. (SWR)

Skywalker Tour
this was the name of a tour developed by the government of Tatooine shortly after the Battle of Endor. It was created to draw more tourists to the desert planet, and claimed to highlight all the locations Luke Skywalker visited before he became a hero of the Alliance and the first of the new Jedi Kngihts. Stops included the old Lars homestead, the Mos Eisley Cantina, and the site of the wreck of Jabba the Hutt's sail barge near the Pit of Carkoon. (SWTJ)

Skywalker, Anakin
Anakin grew up as a slave in the markets of Mos Espa, on Tatooine, arriving on the planet with his mother Shmi when he was just three years old. The details surrounding Anakin's birth are quite confusing, since Shmi revealed to Qui-Gon Jinn that Anakin had not father, that she simply found out she was pregnant and carried the child to birth. Years later, when the story of Darth Plagueis was revealed to Anakin by Chancellor Palpatine, it was theorized that Anakin had been brought to life by Plagueis himself. Anakin and his mother were owned by Gardulla the Hutt at the time, but were eventually won in a podracing bet by Watto. Despite his gruff demeanor, Watto treated the Skywalkers fairly. After meeting Qui-Gon Jinn, Anakin dreamed of becoming a Jedi Knight. His chances were enhanced when Qui-Gon learned of his immaculate conception, believing Anakin to be the Chosen One prophesied by the ancient Jedi lore. After winning the Boonta Eve Classic podrace and being freed by Qui-Gon, Anakin left Tatooine and trained by Obi-Wan Kenobi. His own lightsaber was constructed on Ilum, but Anakin could only remember obtaining the red blade from a vision of Darth Maul. Eventually, he grew into a brash young pilot who joined the Old Republic as a fighter pilot, gaining recognition during his education at the Academy and then during the Clone Wars. Anakin was still a brash young man, and the barriers of patience and hard work seemed to stifle his growing proficiency in the Force. During much of his training, Anakin thought of just two people: his mother on Tatooine, and Padme' Amidala. He fell in love with Padme', and was frustrated that this love was unreturnable. It was about this time that Senator Palpatine also noticed the young Anakin. Sensing the Force within him, Palpatine also sensed Anakin's desire to learn quickly. After the death of Shmi Skywalker Lars at the hands of a clan of Tusken Raiders, Anakin became so enraged that he killed the entire clan, inclding the females and the children. His descent into the Dark Side had begun. During the Battle of Geonosis, Anakin lost his right arm in a lightsaber duel with Count Dooku. The arm was replaced with a cybernetic prosthesis, but took away some part of Anakin's humanity. Anakin slipped further from the Jedi ideal when he secretly married Padme' on Naboo. Anakin fought beside Obi-Wan during the Clone Wars, but Anakin's secrets and his anger often put them at odds. As the war ground on, Obi-Wan was forced to go off on a mission by himself, and Anakin was chosen to accompany Nejaa Halcyon to Praesitlyn. Anakin's quick thinking and daring heroics assured that the hostages there were saved, and the Jedi Council decided to promote him to the level of Jedi Knight upon his return. He made sure that his Padawan's braid was removed from the Jedi Temple and given to Padme' for safekeeping, as another reminder of his love for her. After Anakin beheaded Count Dooku during the First Battle of Coruscant, it was hoped that the Clone Wars came to an end. However, the Outer Rim Sieges continued to rage, forcing the Senate to continue supporting the needs of Chancellor Palpatine. It was during this time that Chancellor Palpatine introduced Anakin to the wonders of the Dark Side of The Force. He also learned that Padme' was pregnant with his child, although he soon began having dreams of her death during childbirth. Anakin realized that, with the power of the Dark Side of the Force behind him, he would be able to provide for himself and his pregnant wife. There would be nothing to hinder him, and his security seemed assured. He became Palpatine's student and was given the title of Darth Vader, and the fall from the Light Side to the Dark Side happened so quickly that Kenobi was powerless to stop it. Kenobi pleaded with Anakin to return to the Light Side, but Anakin would have no part of it. He became Palpatine's personal weapon, destroying the inhabitants of the Jedi Temple before traveling to Mustafar to destroy the Council of Separatists. Padme' and Obi-Wan both followed Anakin to Mustafar, where Anakin accused them of betraying him. After a heated argument in which Anakin nearly choked Padme' to death, Anakin and Kenobi confronted each other in a vicious lightsaber duel. They were evenly matched physically, but Obi-Wan's knowledge of the Force was much greater than Anakin's, and Kenobi was able to maintain his strength. Obi-Wan was forced to cut off Anakin's legs and arm in order to stop him, and Anakin fell into a lava-filled pit, where he was seared alive. Obi-Wan then turned his back on Anakin, leaving him to die in the hopes that the evil in the galaxy would be eliminated. Palpatine, however, managed to locate Anakin before he could die and pulled the burning Anakin from the pit. Palpatine spared no expense in trying to save Anakin, employing a team of medical droids to replace his lost limbs and fit him with a cybernetic life-support suit. Meanwhile, Kenobi then fled with Padme', taking her to Polis Massa where she died during childbirth, just as Anakin had foreseen. It appeared that she died of a broken heart, as medical scans revealed no physical trauma. Anakin's anger boiled over when he learned of Padme's death, especially when Palpatine explained that it had been Anakin himself who killed her. After giving in completely to his anger and hatred, Anakin became Palpatine's minion. Sometime after the Battle of Yavin, Palpatine was able to discover that Anakin had had a son. He used this knowledge to help secure his hold on the former Anakin Skywalker, as well as a way to help turn Luke to the Dark Side. The Light Side of Anakin Skywalker seemed to try and return to the surface, and Vader was faced with a crisis. During the Battle of Endor, Luke managed to get the Light Side of Anakin to re-assert itself, and as the Emperor was trying to kill Luke, Anakin rose up and threw the Emperor down the Death Star's power shaft. The life-support systems that kept Darth Vader alive, however, were seriously damaged by the Emperor's Force lightning, and failed.

Skywalker, Ben
this was the name given to the infant son of Luke Skywalker and his wife, Mara Jade Skywalker, born shortly after the Battle of Duro. Ben was born aboard the converted Star Destroyer Errant Venture, during the Yuuzhan Vong invasion of the galaxy. He was separated from his parents shortly afterward, both to protect him and allow them to fight against the alien invaders. Ben was taken in by his aunt and uncle, Leia Organa Solo and her husband, Han, and brought up on Coruscant. When the Yuuzhan Vong launched their attack on Coruscant, Ben was in Leia's custody as the Solo family made its way to the Millennium Falcon. However, the intervention of Viqi Shesh forced Leia to turn Ben over to C-3PO, who was whisked aboard the Byrt instead of remaining with the Solos. Ben was then kept in several secure locations for the rest of the war against the Yuuzhan Vong, and Mara feared that this period of separation from his parents led to severe anxiety in young Ben. She found it increasingly difficult to locate him through the Force, and both Mara and Luke realized that Ben had started equating the use of the Force to the warfare and bloodshed of the conflict. Thus, despite having an exceptionally strong connection to the Force, Ben unconsciously shut it off. He didn't want to touch the Force, for fear that it might bring more bad things into his life. With the defeat of the Yuuzhan Vong, Luke and Mara resolved to spend more time with Ben, but the rigors of leading the new Jedi order continued to keep them apart. Luke and Mara acquired a Defender Droid to keep watch over Ben, but he found Nanna's presence infuriating. In several conversations, Ben admitted that he wanted to be more like his uncle, Han Solo: working on his own and doing things the hard way. During the initial stages of the conflict with the Colony, Ben unknowingly befriended the first assassin bugs of the Gorog hive, unaware that he was putting his mother in danger. His relationship with the assassin bugs gave him a connection to the Gorog hive, although he was not considered as fully immersed as a true Joiner. It was during this time that Luke and Mara discovered that Ben opened up more whenever he was around his cousin, Jacen Solo, and asked Jacen to take Ben under his wing. Jacen agreed, but was careful not to call Ben an apprentice, since the youth continued to ignore the callings of the Force. However, over time, Ben began to tentatively touch the Force, and his connection was strengthened with Jacen's help. However, the raw power that was within Ben often bubbled to the surface, as when Jacen traveled to Hapes to see Tenel Ka. They found themselves in the midst of a Gorog assassination attempt on the lifes of Tenel Ka's infant daughter - of which Jacen was the father. His connection to the Gorog became evident when he was able to accurately locate the killer bugs in the ceiling and hidden escape tunnels, which helped them escape from the Gorog and confront Ta'a Chume.

Skywalker, Luke
Luke was the son of Anakin Skywalker and Padme' Amidala, and the older twin brother to Princess Leia Organa. He was separated from his sister just after their birth, in order to conceal his potential Force-sensitivity from the Emperor and Darth Vader. He was hidden on the planet Tatooine by Obi-Wan Kenobi, and lived his early years under the watchful eyes of Owen and Beru Lars. Luke was an eager boy, and was always flying his T-16 skyhopper in the canyons near his home while dreaming of being a starpilot at the Academy. Known as Wormie by his friends, he was a reckless youth whose best friend was Biggs Darklighter. When Biggs went off to the Academy, and later the Alliance, Luke felt that he was being mistreated by his Uncle, who annually refused to allow Luke to enroll. Fate and fortune intervened, however, when Owen purchased two well-worn droids named Artoo-Detoo and See-Threepio. With their purchase, Luke was catapulted into the midst of the Alliance. Obi-Wan Kenobi began to instruct Luke in the use of The Force. Luke then rescued Princess Leia from the first Death Star with the help of Han Solo. Following Kenobi's death, Luke destroyed the Death Star by calling on The Force. Later, Luke was visited by Kenobi's spirit, and directed to the planet Dagobah, where Luke trained under the Jedi Master Yoda. Following Yoda's death, Luke became the last of the Jedi Knights. He used his new-found strength to defeat Emperor Palpatine and turn Darth Vader from the Dark Side of the Force, returning Anakin Skywalker to the Light Side. In the years following the formation of the New Republic, Luke was instrumental in the New Republic's defeat of the Ssi-ruuk, the reborn Palpatine, as well as Imperial Admirals Thrawn and Daala. Luke continued his training on his own, and eventually became a Jedi Master. He set up a new Jedi Academy on Yavin's fourth moon, and began teaching the ways of The Force to a new set of Jedi Knights. During the period following the revelations of the partial Caamas Document found on Wayland, Luke travelled to Nirauan to search for Mara Jade. Mara was reported missing and out of touch, after tracing the paths of several unusual starships. They discovered the Hand of Thrawn complex, and managed to eliminate any potential threat it held to the New Republic. During their escape, Luke and Mara worked together with the Force, and both were opened up to the other's inner thoughts and feelings. This deepened and strengthened their relationship to a point that neither could ignore. Just before leaving Nirauan, Luke proposed to Mara. She agreed, and they were married, first in a solemn ceremony performed by Kam Solusar and witnessed only by the Jedi, and later in a public ceremony when they returned to Coruscant. Luke and Mara then left the Jedi Academy on Yavin 4 in the hands of the new Jedi Knights and travelled the galaxy teaching potential Jedi about the ways of the Force. Luke proposed to the New Republic that a new Jedi Council be established, but many members of the Senate feared that the Jedi would become too powerful. Shortly afterward, Luke and Mara were forced to bring the Jedi into battle when the Yuuzhan Vong invaded the galaxy. Despite their ties to the Force, the Jedi were unable to defeat the alien invaders. Several Jedi, led by Kyp Durron, struck out on their own to fight the battle their own way, much to Luke's dismay and to the consternation of the Senate. However, even in battle, Luke was surprised to find that Mara was pregnant with a son. His devotion to Mara, and his deep connection to the Force, allowed Luke to drive out the Yuuzhan Vong disease and help Mara give birth aboard the Errant Venture, shortly after Borsk Fey'lya ordered Luke's arrest. They named their son Ben, in remembrance of Obi-Wan Kenobi. Luke and Mara spent less time with Ben than they had hoped to, when they were pressed into action defending the Eclipse base from invasion and, later, defending Coruscant. With the fall of Coruscant, Ben was separated from them, but was kept safe by Leia Organa Solo and her husband, Han. After talking with Jacen Solo, who had recently returned from captivity at the hands of the Yuuzhan Vong, Luke decided that the best chance for ending the conflict was to locate the rogue planet, Zonama Sekot. Along with his wife, Jacen, Danni Quee, Saba Sebatyne, and Doctor Soron Hegerty, Luke traveled to Csilla to enlist the help of the Chiss. Along the way, he earned the respect and assistance of Arien Yage the Imperial warship Widowmaker, providing an escort for his mission. Eventually, Zonama Sekot was found, but the living sentience of the planet refused to help without first ascertaining Luke's true motives. When it was satisfied that Luke and the Jedi Knights wanted to find a peaceful resolution to the war with the Yuuzhan Vong, Sekot agreed to come out of hiding and provide assistance. Han, Leia, and Jaina Solo had been dispatched to meet them when Zonama Sekot suddenly emerged from hyperspace near Coruscant, and the extended family was briefly reunited before returning to the war. Jacen and his sister accompanied Luke to the surface of Coruscant, in an effort to gain access to the Citadel and bring Supreme Overlord Shimrra to justice. Jacen was able to reach the mind of the World Brain which was controlling the planet, and was able to calm it down and put a stop to the destruction it was causing on the surface. Upon entering Shimrra's throneroom, they were beset by a group of fifteen Slayers, and only Jacen's link to the World Brain allowed them any measure of success. When Jaina set out to capture Onimi, Luke found himself facing Shimrra himself, as the surviving Slayers focused their attention on Jacen. Unable to gain an advantage ove the immense Yuuzhan Vong, Luke was quickly captured by huge amphistaff that served as the Scepter of Power. Caught in its grasp, Luke as only able to free one hand, which he used to keep the Scepter's head from biting him. However, Shimrra commanded the weapon to constrict, driving the breath out of Luke's lungs. As Shimrra produced Anakin Solo's lightsaber from behend his robes and threatened to kill Luke with it, Luke let go of the amphistaff to grab Shimrra's arm. As the creature drove itself into his side, Luke cried out in pain. However, this action momentarily distracted Shimrra's concentration. Luke regained control of his lightsaber, and used the Force to acquire Anakin's. Luke then drove both weapons into Shimrra's neck, severing his huge head from his body. He and Jacen then set out after Jaina, who had gone in search of Onimi. However, the poison from the Scepter of Power began to act on his body, and Luke was unable to continue on his own. He was brought out of the Citadel by Mara and Kenth Hamner, only to learn from a Shamed Shaper that the poison of the Scepter had no known antidote. Luke retreated into the Force, using the technique discovered by Jacen to reach a deeper state of rapport with the Force. Although much of the poison was neutralized in this way, Luke realized that some part of it had simply added to his own person.

Slap Match
developed by the Wookiees of Kashyyyk as a form of hand-to-hand combat training, a slap match involved two individual combatants who could only use their hands to hit their opponent.
