this being, distinguished by his short, spiked, white hair, was often seen in the Outlander Club during the months leading up to the onset of the Clone Wars.
this immense beast was native to the planet Mustafar, where it began its life as a simple parasite. An immature jundak obtained nourishment by lodging itself in a host. When it reached an adolescent stage, the jundak would burst forth from its host's body, and it continued to grow throughout its life. Fortunately for other creatures, a jundak was unable to survive beyond a specific region of central Mustafar.
this was the alias adopted by Luke Skywalker, some eight months after the Battle of Yavin, when he infiltrated the Imperial labor colony on Kalist VI.

this woman was a formed student of the Imperial Academy, although she ended up washing out of the training program and ended up as an administrative assistant on Coruscant, shortly before the Battle of Yavin. This didn't sit well with Kaesii, and she abandoned her post and fled into the criminal underground. In doing so, Kaesii also abanonded her lover, who had been placed in the elite spy training program. She reappeared on Tatooine as a forger and spy, working to undermine the efforts of Jabba the Hutt from her position within the White Thranta shipping operation. During a mission to recover the plans to a prototype military speeder design, Kaesii unknowingly hired her former lover to recover them. His disguise was perfect - he had been given intensive surgery to appear to others as a Twi'lek - and he managed to recover the plans and discover her part in the underworld machinations of Tatooine.

Only Jedi Master Simms was killed, but Jedi Master Kai Hudorra and Simms' Padawan, Noirah Na, were able to escape. Keller set out with his troops to Ithaqua Station, in an effort to prevent them from leaving the planet.
this Jawa was one of the handful of his race who were living on Cularin during the final years of the Clone Wars. He was part of a small gang led by Meelo, and was considered the "founder" of the so-called Wookiee Liberation Front, or WOLF for short. In order to communicate with his comrades, Keth-Keth wore a specialized vocoder unit that translated the Jawa language into Basic. When one of their members was captured and imprisoned by the Metatheran Cartel, Meelo led her inept comrades in a daring escape, which was bungled almost from the start. In the resulting chaos, Meelo managed to rescue her friend, but Keth-Keth decided that they needed to cover their escape. Screaming "Free Kashyyyk" as loud as his vocoder would project, Keth-Keth lobbed grenades at police vehicles while calling for people to rally around the Wookiee Liberation Front. Although it was a simple ruse, the Wookiee Liberation Front received a lot of press in the local holonewscasts, and eventually became a legitimate organization that funneled credits and supplies to help the Wookiees of Kashyyyk in their attempt to ousted the Separatist forces that were trying to take control of their homeworld. When Keth-Keth and his comrades were stopped by a group of clone troopers in Hedrett, he reacted violently to their threats to send him back to Tatooine. He used a specially-fitted stun glove to grab the lead clone trooper by the crotch, sending waves of pain into the clone's testicles. The band managed to evade capture in the ensuing chaos.

this being - some said he was a Sullustan, but other scoffed at this notion - established Krakin's Alehouse in the atmosphere of Genarius, many years before the Battle of Naboo.
this tavern was located in the atmosphere of the planet Genarius, during the final years of the Old Republic. The Alehouse was known as much for its brews as the dust and grime that covered the floor. Although it was established by a being named Krakin, the Alehouse had been run by Sossk during the fifteen years leading up to the Clone Wars.
this was the adjective form of the swear word kriff.
this species of beetle was common on the surface of Mustafar. A species of hive-minded insects, kubaza fed on the minerals and ores that were deposited by the continual flow of lava on the planet's surface. What distinguished the kubaza beetle from other such insects was its ability to explode when killed, a sort of defense mechanism that served to protect future generations from devastation.
this swift-running mammal was native to the Woolwarricca prairies of Kashyyyk. There were several different breeds of kybuck, each distinguishable by the short horns atop the heads of the males. The herbivorous kybucks moved across the plains in large herds, and were always on the lookout for predators. At the slightest sign of danger, the entire herd would burst into motion, often attaining speeds near ninety kilometers per hour in their attempt to escape. Individuals could also turn abruptly, confronting their attacker or getting behind them in an effort to escape in the opposite direction. The intense familial relationships of the kybucks - a given pair mated for life - earned them a measure of respect from the Wookiees of Kashyyyk, who held similar loyalty as a social and familial obligation. Thus, Wookiees never hunted kybucks, and some Wookiee leaders often rode a domesticated kybuck as a symbol of their status.
developed on the planet Mustafar, this unusual weapon fired a stream of super-heated rock or ore at a target. Because its fuel was so heavy, this weapon was exceptionally hard to wield.
this Sullustan sliced worked for Carh'la Bastra and the Alliance during the early stages of the Galactic Civil War. When Bastra set down on Tatooine, Lavar was briefly captured by the Desert Demons. He was freed when an Imperial spy, posing as an Alliance recruit, agreed to help Captain Bastra locate a stolen Imperial cargo. The spy infiltrated the Desert Demons' hiding place and got Lavar out, in an effort to slice into the computer records of the Darklighter family and locate the missing cargo.
this Ewok was the younger brother of Keoulkeech, and grew up alongside his brother in the Red Bush Grove on the Forest Moon of Endor. However, Leektar lacked Keoulkeech's ability to interact with the natural world, a fact that was visibly demonstrated by the minimal growth of his soul tree. Leektar found nothing in which he could excel until he fell win love with Chesea, and Leektar became a devoted husband and father of three Woklings. However, in a selfish moment, Leektar prayed to the Leaf Queen for increased status among his tribe. Shortly afterward, a bolt of lightning struck the village of Red Bush Grove, setting off a forest fire that destroyed the village and killed all the Ewoks in it. Only Leektar survived, and he realized that his selfish desires had come true. He felt responsible for the loss, knowing that his wish had caused the destruction. Leektar left Red Bush Grove behind, and set out into the forest, where he encountered a scouting party from another Ewok tribe being harrased by Imperial stormtroopers. His timely intervention saved the scouts, who brought Leektar back to their home of Bright Tree Village. There, he became one of Chief Chirpa's advisors, and was given the title of Honorary Elder for his bravery. After the Battle of Endor, Leektar was reunited with his brother, Keoulkeech, who had survived the fire at Red Bush Grove and had dedicated himself to healing the forests.
this man served the Empire as a Lieutenant in the military, during the early years of the New Order. He was chosen by Emperor Palpatine himself to serve as one half of the genetic material used in a grand plot to create clone troopers who could tap into the Dark Side of the Force. The other half of the genetic material came from the Dark Jedi, Sa Cuis. Palpatine's plan was to pit the Lekauf clones, without any Force sensitivity, against the Force sensitive clones of Cuis, to show Darth Vader that the Force was no match for the loyalty of well-trained soldiers. He found himself initially fearing Lord Vader's disapproval, especially when his clones were regularly defeated by the Dark Jedi clones. However, Vader cultivated his relationship with Lekauf, and worked diligently to earn Lekauf's loyalty, rather than demanding it. During the training of the clones, Lekauf spent six months on Yinchorr, away from his wife and family. Vader recognized his fear of never seeing them again, and earned Lekauf's loyalty by reassuring him that he would see them when they returned to Coruscant. The most promising of Lekauf's clones were added to the ranks of the 501st Imperial Legion, serving under the command of Vader himself. During the trip back to Coruscant, the Cuis clones rebelled, following their trainer, Sheyvan, on a mission to exact some revenge against the Emperor. Vader and Lekauf led the clone troopers into battle, hoping to defeat the Cuis clones without causing damage to the ship. In the fighting, however, Lekauf leaped in front of Vader to protect him from a blast of Force energy from one of the Cuis clones, apparently unaware that Vader's suit offered more than enough protection. Lekauf suffered serious burns before he was dragged to safety by Vader himself.

believed to have originated on the planet Mandalore, this combat tactic involved one side of a conflict infiltrating a small band of agents into their opponent's base, on a set of false pretenses about helping out the opponent. When the opponent captured the agents and figured out that it was too late to do anything about the enemy, the infiltrators would try to explain that they were only trying to help. In an effort to "prove" their desire to help, the infiltrators would agree to call out other groups of infiltrators who were "hidden" from view. In this way, the first group of agents managed to get larger numbers of invaders inside the opponent's camp, and forced the opposing leaders to surrender under the sheer weight of their numbers.

Mensix Mining Facility
this mining facility was one of the few that remained active on the planet Mustafar, in the wake of the Clone Wars. According to Imperial propaganda, many mines on Mustafar were badly damaged in an industrial accident, a story that covered up the destruction caused by Darth Vader. However, the Mensic facility was one of a handful that were kept barely operational by the Empire, to provide raw materials for the construction of the first Death Star. Vader himself came to the facility to enforce the production of more and more output from the facility, forcing chief adminstrator Milo to agree to a deal in which the facility produced larger amounts of raw material for little or no increase in pay or supplies.

this man worked as chief adminstrator of the mensix Mining Facility on Mustafar, during the early years of the New Order. He constantly found himself at odds with his friend and head foreman, Chivos, when supplies that had been promised to the rest of the miners were never delivered. Milo feared that a lack of production on the miners' part would result in swift punishment by the Empire, and was worried that any Imperial retribution would be his own fault. It had been Milo who had been forced to agree to a new contract by Darth Vader himself, although he was unaware of the incredible demand that the Empire would make on the faiclity. In order to save the lives of his miners and escape from any trouble with the Empire, Milo called in a favor from an old friend, to obtain supplies and get the Mensix facility repaired.
this was the name given to the area of space near the planet Tatooine, where miners established a presence during their attempt to mine ores from the meager asteroid belt in the Tatoo System, during the Galactic Civil War.
this starship design was produced by the Trade Federation as a mobile projectile weapons platform.
Mobile Grenade Mortar
this was one of the first Merr-Sonn weapons platforms produced for the Empire, shortly after the end of the Clone Wars. It was essentially a repulsorlift sled that had been modified to accommodate a mortar launcher, as well as a pair of stormtroopers. One stormtrooper handled flight and maneuvering, while the other manned the weapons systems. The launching system on the Mobile Grenade Mortar could fire up to one hundred mortars a second at a chosen target. This required a munitions hold that could carry hundreds of spare mortars, which were loaded into the launcher via a tube.

this unusual waterfall was located on the Forest Moon of Endor. The falls themselves spread across a twenty-kilometer-wide ledge at one end of a large lake, and fell from such a height that most of the water that reached the ground was in the form of mist, rather than running water. What made the falls unusual was that, whenever their part of the moon faced away from Endor itself, the water stops flowing over the edge. Scientists were unsure of the exact mechanism, but it ws believed that the gravitational pull of Endor caused a massive "tide" to pull the lake water back away from the falls.

this unusual star formation was located just beyond the mouth of the Utegetu Nebula, forming a sort of gauntlet that had to be negotiated before a starship could enter the nebula itself. On one side of the Murgo Choke was a binary star system formed from a yellow and an orange star of similar size. On the other side, another binary system formed from a crimson dwarf that orbited a blue giant created an unusual match. Because of this collection of four stars in such proximity, the Murgo Choke was difficult to navigate through. However, it was the only way to reach the opening of the Utegetu Nebula. Starships wishing to travel to the nebula had to exit from the Rago Run at one of several jump points, then make their way through the Murgo Choke.
Mustafar Bandit Sword
crafted from metals mined on the planet Mustafar, this wicked weapon was distinguished by its curving blade.

this was the alias adopted by Maneeli Tuun, when he was interrogated by Imperial Inquisitor Sancor on Polis Massa, many months after the Clone Wars. Tuun used the alias in an effort to hide his true identity, as well as his previous relationship with the Old Republic. In his guise as Naturian, Tuun emulated a physician, which allowed him to pull up only those medical records that seemed innocent. He could then erase of obscure any records of Padme' Amidala's presence at the Polis Massa medical facility.
this Bothan was born into relative obscurity on the colony world of Ruweln, during the early years of the New Order. After being trained as an officer for many years, Bwua'tu served in the military of both the New Republic and the Galactic Alliance, surviving the Yuuzhan Vong invasion of the galaxy and earning a promotion to Admiral several years after the alien invaders were defeated. However, because he was promoted to Admiral during the relative peace that followed the conflict with the Yuuzhan Vong, Bwua'tu was not promoted on his abilities in the heat of combat. Instead, he was promoted because he was the only being to ever defeat the Thrawn Simulator. This didn't diminish his standing in the eyes of his subordinate officers, especially the Bothans among them. A distinguished looking individual, Bwua'tu was identified by his weathered face and graying chin hair. Those who didn't know him would have sid Admiral Bwua'tu was somewhat vain, surrounding himself with statuary that honored himself and his Bothan heritage. However, he was a shrewd commander who knew how to use the assets of his team. After reaching the rank of Admiral, Bwua'tu was given command of the Fifth Fleet, and was aboard the Admiral Ackbar when it was dispatched to blockade the Utegetu Nebula. A dominating figure, Bwuat'tu demanded loyalty from his commander, Gavin Darklighter, but was open to suggestions and input from other beings. Like many other military officers, Admiral Bwua'tu considered the Force to be nothing more than sorcery, until he witnessed the value of the battle meld first-hand, during the defense of the Murgo Choke against the Gorog. However, Bwua'tu and his crew were unprepared for the suicidal attack of UnuThul's frigate, which rammed the Admiral Ackbar with just enough force to open her hull and allow boarders to swarm inside. Rather than risk the lives of his crew, Bwua'tu called for all hands to abandon ship, and the Admiral Ackbar was lost to the Killiks. The mission succeeded, though, in keeping the Gorog nest ship and ten others trapped within the Utegetu Nebula. After he was recovered and taken aboard the Mon Mothma, Admiral Bwua'tu ordered all remaining ships to fire on the Killik nest ships, hoping to eliminate as much of the Colony as he could.

Some six years after the end of the Yuuzhan Vong invasion, the name of the Night Herald was adopted by Alema Rar, after the death of Welk on Kr during the Qoribu Crisis. According to the former Jedi, BedaGorog was the original Night Herald, until she was killed on Kr by Luke Skywalker. After BedaGorog's death, Alema herself became the Night Herald of the Gorog hive. This story contradicted the truth as Luke understood it, as he knew that he had actually killed Welk on Kr. Whatever the truth, Alema Rar believed that it was her job to ensure that the rest of the galaxy did not interfere with the work of the Colony or the Gorog.
this noted criminal and smuggler was one of the few who tried to oppose Jabba the Hutt's control of the planet Tatooine, during the years following the Battle of Yavin. Like most other such rivals, Niko was constantly hounded by mercenaries hired by Jabba to do his dirty work.
this area of the galaxy was located along the border of the Mid and Outer Rim Territories.
this Mid-Rim planet was the homeworld of a race that was also known as the Nixor. During the early years of the New Order, Nixor was known as a place for an independent starship captain to hide from the Empire. However, the spaceports on Nixor were poorly maintained, primarily because the Nixor people wanted nothing to do with either the Old Republic or Empire and their regulations. Thus, although it was a good place to hide, Nixor offered nothing in the way of amenities or starship services.
this alien race was native to the planet Nixor. Like many frontier peoples, the Nixor hated the overwhleming regulations of the galaxy's government, whether it was the Old Republic or the Empire. Thus, the Nixor refused to maintain their facilities to galactic standards, preferring to remain primitive and in control of their civilization.
this was a Mandalorian command or warning, depending on the context. It was the simplified usage of Ke nu jurkad, which literally meant "Don't brandish your sabre."

this portly, mustached man served the Imperial Army as a General during the early stages of the Galactic Civil War. He was in command of the ground defense forces on Kalist VI some eight months after the Battle of Yavin, when the Nuna's Twins arrived two days after its scheduled arrival date. Noils ordered the vessel to be detained before it could land, until Captain Jodeen and his fighters could surround the vessel and investigate its crew's claimed to have survived an Alliance ambush. Although Jodeen's men were satisfied with the story, Noils demanded to meet Captain Harran face-to-face. The younger man's story eventually satisfied Noils, who allowed the crew to debark upon their arrival on Kalist VI. Noils, however, was unaware that Captain Harran and his crew were actually Alliance agents.
this was Tenel Ka's code phrase for activating the defensive armament on her Defender Droid, DD-11A.
Nu jurkad Mando'ade, burc'ya!
this Mandalorian warning, which was often used more like a command, translated into Basic as "Don't mess with me, mate!" or "Steady, mate!" There was an implied threat of retaliation against another's actions, which was usually backed up by the Mandalorian's body language. The literal translation of the warning was "Don't brandish your sabre with the Mandalorians, mate!"
this Imperial tanker was one of the many ships that made regular supply runs to the Imperial facility on Kalist VI, during the months following the Battle of Yavin. About eight months after the battle, the Nuna's Twins was captured by Alliance agents in the Thila System, as part of a larger plan to ambush the planet's labor colony. The ship was detained only briefly after its capture, just long enough crew the vessel with an Alliance assault team. The Nuna's Twins then completed its journey to Kalist VI, with a group of Alliance starfighters "harrassing" it the entire way. With the communication systems aboard the Nuna's Twins damaged, her "crew" was able to convince the defense forces on Kalist VI of the legitimacy of their story, and they were allowed to land after the rebel fighters were driven off. The "crew" of Alliance agents was by Luke Skywalker, under the alias of Lieutenant Jundland, and they were able to infiltrate the labor colony.
this was the alias used by one of two Almas Academy Jedi - the other was simply known as Rune - who approached Yara Grugara about doing an interview on the current state of the galaxy, in the wake of the Clone Wars and the formation of the first Galactic Empire. The two Jedi, under visual and audio anonymity, tried to explain who the balance of the Force had been upset by the rise to power of Emperor Palpatine. Nute's position was that the Jedi Order was correct in focusing on protecting the peace and stability of the galaxy, in fighting against the Sith and their use of the Dark Side of the Force. Rune argued that the Jedi were blinded by this position, and should have worked harder to embrace a more complete vision of the Force. When Yara questioned whether or not the Jedi should have taught their students more about the Sith, Rune agreed with this statement. Nute, however, boisterously disagreed and explained that this was an unnecesarrily fatalistic view of the situation, which further raised Rune's emotions. When Nute tried to explain that the Jedi were only concerned with doing was was right, Rune's control broke. He drew on power from the Dark Side of the Force and tried to strangle Nute, and Yara was powerless to intervene. The broadcast ended with Rune screaming at Nute about balance, as Nute struggled to draw a breath.
