this former Imperial officer was one of the great number of Imperials who eventually defected to the Alliance. He joined the Alliance prior to the Battle of Hoth, spending several years under the watchful eye of Colonel Firest before serving as a trooper officer at Hoth's Echo Base. He was known to be extremely efficient in his use of resources, and was highly regarded for his ability to stretch the Alliance's meager supplies. It was Callum, who held the rank of Sergeant Major, who first recognized the AT-AT walkers that had been deployed against the Alliance's forces.

this was one of many sections of the vast city which covered the planet Coruscant. It was located between the Imperial Palace and the Senate Rotunda during the last decades of the Old Republic. During the Yuuzhan Vong invasion of the galaxy, the Calocour Heights district was one of many city areas destroyed when the aliens captured Coruscant. As the planet was terraformed to resemble the long-lost planet of Yuuzhan'tar, the Calocour Heights area was razed to make way for the Square of Hierarchy.

Lando Calrissian is a dark-skinned, human male from an undisclosed world. Born during the later years of the Old Republic, Lando grew into a gambler and con-artiste, smoking cigars and learning how to play sabacc and win regularly. Never one to stay in any single place too long, Lando made more friends than enemies in his early years roaming the galaxy. Ever the gambler, Lando considered himself the Commander of Staves, a sabacc card that often showed up in the fortunes told about him with the sabacc deck. When a perfect hand of sabacc won him ownership of the Millennium Falcon, Lando's life took a strange turn. He ran into Han Solo on Nar Shaddaa, rescuing the young man from Boba Fett. Lando was never much of a pilot, and allowed Han to teach him the basics. However, following the Battle of Nar Shaddaa, Lando's first flight went off-course, bringing him to the Oseon System. A few games of sabacc later, Lando had won the strange droid Vuffi Raa, and was launched into a series of adventures. As was par for the course, Lando made a few more enemies during this time, the greatest of which was the Tund Sorcerer Rokur Gepta. Gepta pursued Lando across the galaxy after Lando loosed the Mindharp of the Sharu from its hiding place; Gepta wanted the artifact for himself. After getting stuck in one of the Oseon's Flamewinds, Gepta nearly killed Lando in an elaborate plot. By this time, Lando was beginning to feel his own mortality, and when he and Vuffi Raa encountered the Oswaft, he sympathized for them enough to try and run the Imperial blockade of their home and bring them food. Gepta again nearly killed Lando at the ThonBoka, but Lando was able to overcome the Sorcerer and eliminate him. After this, Lando began honing his business skills, and he used the Millennium Falcon to start a small transport operation. It was during this time that a young smuggler named Han Solo beat him at sabacc. Lando had offered up Han's pick of the starships in Lando's personal fleet, hoping that Han would pick one of the shiny new ships over the battered Falcon. Han's nose for starships led him to choose the old freighter, and Lando was left to his newer, less friendly ships. Using his nose for business, Lando learned of the tibanna gas mines near Bespin, and set out to see them for himself. He ended up winning Cloud City in a sabacc match, and his growing business acumen allowed him to turn the mining outpost into a profitable operation. However, when Boba Fett later traced the Millennium Falconback to Cloud City, Lando's string of hard-luck business ventures began. Darth Vader commandeers Cloud City in order to capture Luke Skywalker and Lando was forced to evacuate the outpost. After seeing Han Solo frozen in carbonite and Cloud City overrun by stormtroopers, Lando signed up with the Alliance, and became one of the Alliance's best generals, leading a number of missions to success, including the bombing run on the second Death Star orbitting over the forest moon of Endor. Following the destruction of that Death Star and the fall of the Empire, Lando returned to Cloud City, but was unable to make the operation profitable. Using a set of plans and ideas he borrowed from Cloud City's founder, Ecclessis Figg, Lando started The Nomad City mining operation on Nkllon. In another stroke of bad luck, Grand Admiral Thrawn first stole most of his mole miners, then disabled the mobile city in a strafing run. Lando was forced to abandon the mining operation before Nkllon's intense primary star fried it to ashes. After assisting the New Republic in the defeat of Thrawn, Lando tried his best to win the heart of Mara Jade. He succeeded only in gaining her as a business partner, as the two joined their collective resources to try and re-establish the spice mines of Kessel as a legal operation. This failed, as the galaxy no longer felt the need to indulge in artificial pleasures. Down on his luck, Lando set up camp on the planet Coruscant, and began working on Dometown, an underground city that was not too affluent but could cater to the upper-middle class. He only needed financial support, and devised a plan where he would marry a rich woman who could support his monetary needs while turning a profit with him. Lando courted several woman, but found himself drawn to Tendra Risant. He was temporarily thwarted in this endeavor by the secession of the Corellian Sector from the New Republic, as his prospective bride was a native of Sacorria. However, after the resolution of the Corellian Crisis, Lando and Tendra began to discover that their relationship transcended the galactic politics. Eventually, they were married, and they used their combined business acumen - and a good deal of luck - to amass a small fortune in a variety of business endeavors. Shortly before the Yuuzhan Vong invaded the galaxy, they formed Tendrando Arms. They planned to provide the YVH 1 combat droids to the New Republic in order to help combat the Yuuzhan Vong, but Lando was reactivated to his rank of General when the alien invaders attacked Coruscant itself. As the war ground on, Lando and Tendra spent an increasingly larger portion of their time with the Smugglers' Alliance, working on the fringes to assist the New Republic's war efforts. Their relationship with the likes of Booster Terrik and Talon Karrde came to fruition just after the Battle of Ebaq, in time to assist the Galactic Alliance in its mission to retake Coruscant from the alien invaders. When the Yuuzhan Vong finally surrendered to the Galactic Alliance at Coruscant some five years after their invasion began, Lando and Tendra decided to pursue more legitimate goals. The galaxy needed to be rebuilt, and there were too many honest ways to make a living.

She was moderately wealthy, but had a number of friends and relatives in high places within the Corellian Sector. She had fair skin, high cheekbones, and brownish-blond hair. When Lando first met her, she wass in her mid-thirties, and he was immediately taken with her. Their relationship continued to grow, and they eventually became business partners. Tendra managed to pursuade her family to help finance their underwater mining facility on Varn. It was also during this time that Lando and Tendra discovered that their relationship was greater than the forces at work in the galaxy, and they eventually got married. Their combined business sense led them to become involved in a wide variety of enterprises, until theiy eventually formed Tendrando Arms, shortly before the Yuuzhan Vong invasion of the galaxy began.

Lando Calrissian barely escaped an adventure on this planet, some time before he joined the Alliance.
this was a generic term used to describe a form of defensive implement formed from a central sphere of metal, to which were affixed a minimum of four metal spikes. The minimum of four spikes ensured that, when thrown, the caltrop always presented an upright spike. When a large number of caltrops was thrown or deployed across a room's floor or entranceway, they provided a screen which a pursuer had to avoid, or else have the metal spikes driven into their feet. Especially devious individuals coated the spikes of their caltrops with sedatives or poisons, in an effort to ensure their escape.
this chaff gun was produced by Arakyd during the years leading up to the Clone Wars. It fired a spray of sensor-distorting durasteel particles into the air, which created clouds on nearby sensors. When fired at aircraft, the durasteel particles also acted as shrapnel, perforating hulls and flesh with deadly results.
primary planet in the Calus System. The system is connected to the Wroona System via Keller's Void.
this planet was located in the Tion Hegemony, and was distinguished by the unusual environmental phenomenon known as the Nocturne of the Winged-Stars. Located in orbit around the planet was a space station that was known to most independent spacers for its huge stockpile of replacement parts from Lianna. The planet and the orbiting station became targets of Yuuzhan Vong attacks, as the alien invaders planned to subjugate the population and use them for sacrifices in the final consecration of Coruscant as the new Yuuzhan'tar. Despite the efforts of Base Commander Garray and Pash Cracken, Caluula Station was destroyed and the planet was overrun by the Yuuzhan Vong. The natives of both the station and the planet were transported to Coruscant for sacrifice, although many were "rescued" by the Shamed Ones who believed they were following the words of the Prophet, Yu'shaa. After taking the planet, the Yuuzhan Vong installed a yammosk there. This gave the Yuuzhan Vong a base of operations from which to launch raids on New Republic outposts in the sector. However, as the planet's defenses fell, the planetary Governor of Caluula made contact with the aliens to surrender. As part of the deal, though, she requested that scientists still be allowed access to the planet, which was about to experience another Nocturne of the Winged-Stars. The Yuuzhan Vong commander, looking for a swift end to the hostilities, agreed to the deal. However, as soon as the battle for Caluula became a rout, the natives of the planet began stashing weapons and supplies in the mountains, hoping to retrieve them later in an effort to eliminate the alien invaders. All of this military activity overshadowed a larger, environmental issue, which surfaced when the winged-stars emerged from their 300-year incubation but failed to mate. At the same time, Yuuzhan Vong bio-constructs began dying rapidly, much to the dismay of the Shapers stationed on the planet. Then the Shapers and warriors died as well, leaving the planet devoid of Yuuzhan Vong. It was later revealed that the Bothan Intelligence agent, Wraw, had been added to Team Meloque to verify the efficacy of a new strain of the Alpha Red virus unleashed on the planet.
this city, the planetary capital of the planet Caluula, was bordered on three sides by rugged mountains. As soon as the Yuuzhan Vong accepted the surrender of Caluula's planetary governor, they placed Caluula City under martial law until a yammosk could be installed in the heart of the city. Afterward, the local civilians were allowed to move about without surge coral implants, primarily because the Yuuzhan Vong wanted to use the local populace as a way to keep the New Republic from trying to kill the yammosk with an orbital bombardment.
see Caluula Station
this was the name of the space station which was built in orbit around the planet Caluula. Despite its allegiance to the New Republic military, the station had a reputation of having just the part a spacer needed to repair their ship, thanks to a huge stockpile of replacement parts obtained from the planet Lianna. It was also a haven for scientists who traveled to the Tion Hegemony to study Caluula's unusual environmental phenomena. During the months following Operation Trinity, Caluula Station took a pounding from Yuuzhan Vong forces, and the destruction of many HoloNet relay stations meant that the New Republic was unaware of the attack. After the rescue mission to Selvaris was interrupted by the first appearance of the Yuuzhan Vong Slayers, Han Solo managed to escape Selvaris and flee to Caluula Station aboard the Millennium Falcon. Shortly afterward, the Yuuzhan Vong employed a yncha to attack Caluula Station. Base Commander Garray found himself powerless to defend the station. Faced with the imminent destruction of Caluula Station, Garray issued the evacuation orders, hoping to get as many people as possible to the planet's surface. Despite the efforts of Garray's forces, Caluula Station was ultimately destroyed. The survivors fled to Caluula, where they could regroup to defend the planet from invasion.

this Jedi Master was the first of his kind to command the headquarters of the Grand Army of the Republic, during the early stages of the Clone Wars. He was known for his unceasing desire to obtain "more clost per credit" out of the clone troopers that were produced on Kamino, which was borne out in the kill-ratio numbers released by the Old Republic. Under his early direction, each clone trooper accounted - on average - for the destruction of 200 battle droids. He took this desire one step further with the training of clone commandos, developing a group of special operations agents that could strike at the manufacturing and raw-material production facilities of the Separatists. In this way, a few thousand commandos eliminated billions of droids, many before they even reached the battlefield.

Camo Scout Armor
developed and produced by Creshaldyne Industries, this speciallized armor was created to protect an individual while making them difficult to see. Woven into the fabric of the armor was circuitry that worked with tiny photoreceptive fibers built into the outer plating, absorbing ambient light and changing color to match the wearer's surroundings.
originally developed by the Nociv of the planet Kadril, a camocowl allowed the wearer to breathe without inhaling deadly or toxic gases.

The ships were retaken by Sorannan's crews, and the squadron fled back to Byss and the Deep Core.
this form of Yuuzhan Vong starship was essentially a collection of hexagonal containment chambers, glued together to form kilometers-long transport ships. Roughly spherical in shape, camp ships were originally used to transport large groups of small cargoes across small distances. After the Yuuzhan Vong launched their invasion of the galaxy some twenty-five years after the Battle of Endor, they began using the transports to move slaves across the galaxy. The individual chambers were of all sizes, and each was capable of accommodating a wide range of gravities and environments. The name "camp ship" derived from the New Republic captives who were transported in these ships. The chambers were large enough to accommodate families and clans, allowing them to exist in mobile, Yuuzhan Vong refugee camps. These ships were extremely useful during the reformation of Coruscant, when hundreds of millions of beings had to be moved off-planet in order to being its Vongforming.
Campaign Against Republic Militarization
founded by Senator Padme' Amidala, this political organization sought to find a peaceful solution to the growing separatist movement in the Old Republic, shortly before the Clone Wars. Amidala and the Campaign's members opposed Chancellor Palpatine's call for the formation of a grand army to combat secession, and held a series of peace rallies on various planets in order to gain support.
a large, predatory eel native to the Shinkai Abyss on Spira, the Camray was popular among the upper-class game hunters who traveled to the planet for their vacations. They average nearly five meters in length, and live deep below the surface where they feed on sliverfish. Their mouths are lined with sharp teeth, and their muscular bodies allow them to attack their prey with speed and strength. Their fearsome reputation earned them the respect of many hunters, and the acquisition of a Camray Eel spoke to a hunter's skills. Once removed from the ocean and killed, the Camray eel gives off a pungent, foul smell, and must be transported in a sealed container for delivery to a taxidermist.. During the height of the Galactic Civil War, the Alliance sometimes smuggled information and hard goods from Spira by packing them inside one of these sealed containers.

this large, winged insect was native to the planet Kashyyyk. When on the ground, the cancell walked on six spindly legs. In the air, it used four long wings to propel itself, while its long, segmented tail provided stability. The average can-cell measured some three meters in length, and was an insectivore. The Wookiees of Kashyyyk considered the appearance of a can-cell to be a good omen, and often kep them as pets. The Wookiees also realized that can-cells could be used as mounts, but they were too big to ride the insects themselves. Instead, the handful of Aleena who lived and worked on Kashyyyk became the primary riders of can-cells. During the height of the Clone Wars, Aleena were hired as reconnaissance scouts, flying over enemy encampments to gather intelligence.

see Candorian Plague.
this parasite was particularly dangerous, because its genetic structure allowed it to support viruses that were specific to humans. These hookworms burrowed into their hosts and lodged themselves in the circulatory system, and could not be removed without killing the host. When they reproduce, the hookworms "shed" any viruses it carried, dispersing them into the host's blood supply. For this reason, saboteurs and assassins liked to infect these hookworms with plagues and set them loose in human-inhabited areas. A swarm these creatures was known to have infected Calif City, on Dentaal, with a strain of Candroidan Plague, depopulating the city in just three weeks.
