They learned that Erling's sister, Dena, had been sent to 24 Tredway to convince Erling to stop his rebellious activity in the Belt, but found Dena had been injured in Parnell's attack on 24 Tredway. They brought Dean to Ire Eleazari, then returned to Tol Ado to rescue Erling.

summoned from the very essence of The Force, this creature existed as a deadly plume of smoke until it could feed on living tissue. When it captured a living being, the smoke demon first paralyzed it, then insinuated its smoky form into the physical body of its prey. The smoke demon then sucked every bit of living essence from the body, leaving nothing behind. As it fed, the smoke demon became more substantial. As it grew stronger, the only way to kill a smoke demon was with the Force itself. When a smoke demon died, the souls of its victims - which had been trapped inside it - were finally freed.

in the years following Grand Admiral Thrawn's defeat, the tenuous collaboration between the galaxy's best smugglers was consolidated into a formal alliance which agreed to assist the New Republic in any way possible. Mara Jade served as the liaison between the Republic and the Alliance for many years, before marrying Luke Skywalker and training at the Jedi praxeum on Yavin 4. During the Yuuzhan Vong invasion of the galaxy, the Smugglers' Alliance maintained a low profile, as many of its members turned to more legitimate activities such as running supplies and weapons to worlds that had been ravaged by the alien invaders. With the surrender of the Yuuzhan Vong at Coruscant some five years after the invasion began, the leaders of the Smugglers' Alliance decide that it was time to disband the alliance. Many of the goods they had been providing to the galaxy - chief among them the various forms of spice - had been in short supply during the war, and most beings had been forced to confront their addictions and overcome them. This meant that there was a very small market for these illegal goods. Thus, the members of the alliance set off to help the galaxy rebuild itself.
according to Han Solo, this was the set of rules by which smugglers worked together, regardless of race, creed, religion, or any other delineating factor.

this loose alliance was formed in the Cularin System, shortly before the Battle of Naboo. They were the chief rivals to the power of Riboga the Hutt, having organized themselves into a loose guild in order to gain a measure of respect and power in the system.

The day-to-day operations of the Confederacy were unchanged, and many smugglers actually welcomed the leadership Riboga brought to the group.

this collection of asteroids was once controlled by the Hutts. It served as a base of operations for many smugglers who couldn't afford the relative luxury of havens like Nar Shaddaa. The Smuggler's Run has been in use for several centuries, and has remained unchecked due to its hazardous entrance through the asteroids. Several asteroids have been hollowed out or riddled with caverns to support life, and have been nicknamed Skips. The Skips were numbered in the order in which they were inhabited. A few minor crimelords developed personal empires within certain asteroids, but their influence rarely extended beyond a single rock. After the deaths of Jabba the Hutt and Emperor Palpatine, the Run became freed of Hutt control and began to operate on its own. During this time, the failed Jedi Dolph found an ally in the crimelord Nandreeson, and together they began shipping Dolph's rigged droids through the Run to points on Coruscant and other New Republic worlds. Many smugglers took jobs working for Nandreeson and Dolph, but many of them suddenly disappeared when they got too involved.
this galaxy-wide newsnet sprang up during the New Order, and was created to provide smugglers and independent spacers with relevant information on various sectors of the galaxy. Rather than provide information on legitimate spacing opportunities, the Smuggler's Scuttlebutt detailed the current underworld situation in a given location.
this chain of mountains ran down the center of Elrood's largest continent, separating Elrooden from Dinbar. Originally founded by Lud Chud as an isolated landing strip, this area was allowed to remain operative by Elrood Starport Command only through Lud Chud's careful management. Only a few ships were allowed to land at the Smugglers' Strip each day, in order to maintain traffic through the main starport.
originally attributed to smugglers who plied the spacelanes, this maneuver involved turning a vehicle on its axis with a quick burst of speed and a hard crank on the steering vane. The vehicle would then spin end-for-end, enabling the pilot to quickly reverse course.

related to the blast bug used by the Yuuzhan Vong, the snap bug was a much smaller creature, although it exploded in much the same way as a blast bug did. Instead of causing physical damage, however, snap bugs produced a blinding flash of light which disoriented an individual long enough for a Yuuzhan Vong warrior to launch and attack. In low light situations, snap bugs could also provide a spark of illumination.
this ancient, gray-skinned man was a scout for the Jedi Knights, searching the galaxy for Force-sensitive individuals in preparation for the struggle against the Brotherhood of Darkness. It was Snapit who discovered Tomcat and Bug on the planet Somov Rit, and he arranged for the the children to be transferred to Ruusan. Upon arrival, however, their ship was set upon by Sith starfighters, and only Snapit, Bug, and Tomcat survived the crash-landing. The youths were impatient with Snapit's lack of action, and were amazed when the elderly Jedi did not draw his own lightsaber in a struggle against a team of Sith scouts. Nevertheless, Snapit managed to defeat the Sith, and believed that he had finally taught the boys a lesson. As they fled the Sith warriors, Snapit was forced to sacrifice himself to save the boys. After the boys crossed a narrow bridge, Snapit lured the Sith onto the bridge before cleaving it in two with his lightsaber. Snapit and the Sith fell to their deaths. Tomcat tried to find Snapit, but only to take his lightsaber.

this human was the son of a brilliant droid designer. His early years were filled with loneliness broken only by the company of droids, which Xalto came to love as his real family. As he grew, Xalto started to believe that all droids were at least somewhat sentient, and deserved to be treated as equals to organic lifeforms. Xalto's education followed his father's footsteps, and he became a genius in droid mechanics. His behavior turned fanatical and irrational in his later years, and a tattoo of a cog and a lightning bolt on his right hand signifies his complete devotion to freeing all droids throughout the galaxy. He founded the Droid Abolitionist Movement, and a small team of confederates gathered around him, including Babalabbet Swoont, Zoonia Tantra, and a blue droid known as G-3PO. A loud and fiery speaker, Xalto was highly charismatic. When he discovered that Cosmohaul Shipping was transporting large numbers of droids, he and his followers began pirating Cosmohaul ships. He and his team infiltrated Cosmohaul's crew pool, and managed to gain access to the Argent Lady and its cargo of R5 droids. Xalto added his "emancipation virus" to the droids, and hoped to set them free. However, his droids' programming caused the droids to rebel even against him. His group on the Argent Lady was tracked and killed by the R5 droids before a group of freelance mercenaries could stop them.

Snil was then transported to Genon, and was given to the Zanibar for one of their blood-sacrifices.

These curve-winged vehicles could attain speeds of 600 kilometers an hour, mainly because the designers fitted an immense ion afterburner just behind the cockpit. This enhanced drive system gave the Sniper a characteristic whine whenever it flew into battle.
this Rodian was one of the mercenaries employed by Jabba the Hutt to infiltrate Ylesia just prior to the Alliance's assault on the planet.

a native of Lianna, this greasy-haired man served as an investigator for the Imperial Office of Criminal Investigations for many years. His successes, both in the field and in in the bureaucracy, earned him a posting as an officer in the Kwenn Station IOCI facility. However, several shady deals caught up with him, and he quit the IOCI in order to avoid being investigated himself. He remained on Kwenn Station, brokering information to the highest bidder. He also expedited the postings of bounties, matching them to specific hunters in order to minimize the paperwork a hunter was required to do in order to take on a bounty. It was later learned that Snivas had been working for Tern Ashandrik, sending less-qualified hunters to Seregar in order to help maintain Ashandrik's freedom.
