this immense, reptilian being served as a guard at Count Dooku's fortress on Raxus Prime, during the years surrounding the Battle of Geonosis. Cydon Prax was a Chistori, and had a bald head that was circled by a heavy crest. His mouth with filled with a multitude of huge, square teeth. He spoke in terse sentences, and rarely displayed emotion. When he did speak, Prax often referred to himself as "us." Dooku assigned Prax to watch over young Boba Fett, after the youth was brought to Raxus Prime following his father's death on Geonosis. Prax was later assigned to the task force Count Dooku had assembled to track down the Force Harvester, and was instrumental in the Separatist's plans to enslave the Wookiees of the planet Kashyyyk. Besides his military skills, Prax was also an excellent pilot, and fought a brief battle with Anakin Skywalker during the early stages of the Clone Wars. After having captured Skywalker on Raxus Prime, the Jedi escaped, but was confronted by Prax again on the planet Thule. There, the two engaged each other by attacking with their fighter tanks. Ultimately, Anakin proved to be the better pilot, as he was able to destroy Prax's tank and kill the Chistori.

a deep-sea creature native to Chad III, these huge, long-necked fish-lizards vocalize a mournful song. Many people on the planet made their living moving with the herds of cy'een, harvesting the plants and smaller fish for food. Unlike most other species of the planet, the cy'een are infinitely wild and untamable. The phrase "riding the cy'een" became a local expression for any challenging or dangerous task.
this Sienar Ships Mark I transport was owned and operated by The Shield. The craft had been equipped with a pair of double lasers and a turret-mounted laser cannon. It was heavily upgraded to withstand battle, and was given at least five false transponder codes in case The Shield was intercepted by Imperial forces.

manufacturers of Lambda-class shuttles and starship components, Cygnus has strong ties to Sienar Fleet Systems and the Imperial Navy. They filled the gap in starship requirements for mobile transports and shuttles, since SFS concentrated on small starfighters and Kuat Drive Yards concentrated on capital ships. They took the original SFS Lambda-class shuttle design and created a number of variants, such as the Xg-1 StarWing gunboat and the Delta-class shuttle.
this planet is home to a wonderful natural formation known as the Crystal Spires. The planets Corellia and Corulag both sent delegates to Cyimarra to gather data on the spires. They hoped to recreate them on Coruscant for the Grand Display, during the Imperial Fair, shortly after the Battle of Yavin.
this was an alias used by Platt Okeefe to prowl the newsnets during the Galactic Civil War. Her secret was discovered by Andor Javin and his V1-CH droid, after searching through hundreds of thousands of combinations of syntax, language, and grammar. The droid discovered that the word "Cynabar," when translated into Ithorian and then displayed using Huttese character system, reveals something that looks like "Plttke." Javin then put the pieces of puzzle together, noting that Cynabar and Okeefe both disappeared from Nar Shaddaa when the Empire nearly caught Cynabar on the vertical world.
Cynabar's Droid Datalog

this planet, the primary world in the Cyphar System, was a strategically located planet in the Mid Rim. It was the target of the Confederacy of Independet States shortly after the Battle of Geonosis, as the Separatists hoped to use it as a staging area for attacking Old Republic locations throughout the Mid Rim. In order to ensure Cyphar's cooperation, the Separatists planned to dispatch the Storm Fleet to Cyphar and threaten them into agreement. Obi-Wan Kenobi and his apprentice, Anakin Skywalker, discovered the Separatist plans for Cyphar during a stopover at the Kronex Spaceport, and managed to delay the Storm Fleet enough to warn the Old Republic military about the impending invasion.
this Nalrithian bounty hunter almost captured Han Solo on Ord Mantell, shortly after the Battle of Yavin. Cypher Bos wore a set of highly-polished plate armor, which helped hide his appearance. He also had a series of cybernetic pain inhibitors implanted along his spine, in order to allow him to absorb more punishment. During his hunt for Solo, he killed his own eggmate brother, Phoedris Bos, who was known to be sympathetic to the Alliance. Cypher Bos then posed as Phoedris and nearly captured Han - along with Leia Organa and Luke Skywalker - on Ord Mantell. The Alliance agents were on Ord Mantell to steal a cargo container full of credits being paid to the Empire by a former shipping company owned by ther Organa family. Much to Cypher's surprise, Solo was much faster than he anticipated, shooting and killing Cypher in a brief firefight before escaping. Their escape led them into the sights of the bounty hunter Skorr.

this descendant of Kirr Cyrs was a native of Socorro, and was hired by the Alliance to scout the planet's suitability as a base of operations. A freelance scout by trade, Jobany was sympathetic to the Alliance's cause during the Galactic Civil War, and helped them scout many bases. However, his ancestry gave him a deep sense of nostalgia, and his scouting reports often read like travelogues. He traveled the galaxy in the modified Vangaard Pathfinder Outward Bound.

a series of droids manufactured by Serv-O-Droid for communications and translation. These humanoid automatons have large eye-like pods on their heads and boxy features. They are somewhat outdated, but were proficient in scrambling and encrypting transmissions. Some were programmed as security or defense drones that warned their masters of imminent attacks. When the CZ series was first procuded, Serv-O-Droid painted every model in a green, peach, and yellow color scheme, to make them stand out from the competition.

this large corporation manufactured a variety of hold-out blasters, flame weapons, and handheld projectile weapons. Czerka was originally founded as the Czerka Corporation, during the earliest days of the Old Republic. The corporation grew rapidly, and established a virtual monopoly on the weapons market. When the Great Sith War broke out, corporate executives decided to ally themselves with the Sith, fearing that the Old Republic would be unable to defend itself. In the wake of the defeat of the Sith, Czerka was faced with a publicity nightmare, and decided to change its name so simply Czerka Arms. During the last centuries of the Old Republic, Czerka sold its wares to any buyer with ready credits. However, during the height of the New Order, Czerka worked out an exclusive distribution deal with the Empire and was the third largest producer of weapons in the galaxy, behind only BlasTech and Merr-Sonn. With the fall of the Empire, Czerka courted the New Republic in an effort to increase their marketshare and presence in the galaxy. It grew to become the third-largest weapons manufacturer of the modern era, behind BlasTech and Merr-Sonn.

this large corporation manufactured a variety of hold-out blasters, flame weapons, and handheld projectile weapons. Czerka was originally founded many millennia before the Galactic Civil War. The corporation grew rapidly, and established a virtual monopoly on the weapons market. When the Great Sith War broke out, corporate executives decided to ally themselves with the Sith, fearing that the Old Republic would be unable to defend itself.
this tall, broad-shouldered man had close-cropped, moss-green hair. A silver cyborg implant wrapped completely around his head, and had several access ports jacked directly into his skull. The implant covered his eyes, and a single red optical laser allowed him to see. One of the more powerful lieutenants in the Black Sun organization, Czethros was imprisoned in the Kessel spice mines after being arrested by Imperial officers on Ord Mantell, shortly after the Battle of Yavin. Czethros and his companion, Briff, had been trying to capture Han Solo by threatening to kill Chewbacca. Solo countered by stealing Czethros' starship and flying into several Imperial no-fly zones and committing other infractions. Han returned to Ord Mantell and rescued Chewbacca just before a squadron of stormtroopers arrested Czethros and Briff. Czethros found employment on Kessel as an assistant to Moruth Doole, and later returned to Ord Mantell upon his release. Czethros never forgot his Black Sun connections, and soon found employment with Durga the Hutt. After Durga's demise, he decided to lay low and became a respectable businessman, and was influential in the yearly planning of the Blockade Runners Derby. This served as the perfect front from which to rebuild Black Sun in his own image. It was Czethros who then arranged for Solo to act as Grand Marshall of the 93rd Derby, all the while plotting his revenge against Han. His initial plans failed, but Czethros was undaunted. He knew that he was rebuilding a criminal empire through the remnants of Black Sun, and would soon have enough resources to eliminate Solo once and for all. Czethros continued to expand his organization, learning from all of Black Sun's previous mistakes. He tried to take control of much of Cloud City's revenues, including SkyCenter Galleria, but was again foiled in his plans by Lando Calrissian and the Solo children. Sometime later, Czethros placed key Black Sun agents in high positions around the galaxy, and developed a plan which used precision communications to simultaneously activate them. On cue, they would disrupt New Republic governments and provide enough distraction for Czethros to move in and take control. First, however, Czethros tried to take over the spice mines of Kessel. His plan nearly succeeded, but the Jedi Knights Jaina Solo, Zekk, and Lowbacca managed to foil his communications plan and eliminate the threat. New Republic forces were quickly dispatched to Kessel, and Czethros was forced to flee. He was unable to get away cleanly, however, and fell into a vat of molten carbonite after tripping over a dead mine worker. His frozen form was recovered by the New Republic and taken into custody.

this ancient Yuuzhan Vong was the father of Warmaster Tsavong Lah. After being succeeded by his son, Czulkang Lah became a well-known teacher of Yuuzhan Vong youths. A harsh and stern master, Czulkang Lah demanded only the best from his students. Many students earned "Czulkang Lah pits," as a result of making mistakes in his classes. In the wake of the Battle of Coruscant, Tsavong Lah called upon his father's expertise to help him guide the Yuuzhan Vong invasion. The elder warrior had severe arthritis, and could move about only with the help of enhanced vonduun-crab armor. When the Yuuzhan Vong began planning their assault on the galaxy, Czulkang Lah opposed his son's plans for conquest. However, he bore his son no ill will, and agreed to take command of Domain Hul's resources to lead an assault against Borleias, following the Battle of Coruscant. While he was a cunning warrior in his time, Czulkang Lah was unable to anticipate the tactics used by Wedge Antilles at Borleias. The former Warmaster fell completely for the Starlancer Project, and dedicated large amounts of military resource to destroying it. Then, when the New Republic finally abandoned Borleias, Czulkang Lah failed to interpret the destruction being suffered by the Lusankya. His weakness in trying to anticipate the actions of the Republic led him to lose much of his fleet before realizing that the Lusankya was going to ram his worldship. Czulkang Lah ordered the complete evacuation of the ship, but remained aboard as it exploded after being impaled by the Super Star Destroyer.
Czulkang Lah Pit
this was the term used to describe the small holes which appeared on the bodies of Yuuzhan Vong students who were trained by Czulkang Lah. The pits were caused by Czulkang Lah's amphistaff, which he used to lash out at students who made mistakes during his lectures. For those students who earned only a few of these pits, they became a badge of honor and respect. For those students who earned a great number of them, they became marks of shame for their ineptitude.
