this young saber rake was a member of House Cadriaan, who was known to enjoy things which were unorthodox and, more importantly, anti-Imperial. Although nothing was ever proven, many other Tapani Sector Houses believed he was a member of the Alliance.

Wennel was hit with real fire from an unknown enemy, and barely survived the play.
this was the name of Rokur Gepta's personal starship, a decommissioned Imperial cruiser that had been built nearly a century before the Galactic Civil War. It was a trowel-shaped craft, painted in a matte black finish and bristling with weaponry and shielding. Although ostensibly part of the Imperial Navy, the Wennis lacked any markings that denoted ties to the Empire. Her crew wore the standard uniforms of the Imperial Navy, but lacked any insignia or indications of rank or unit. Most of the crew resented this, but kept silent out of sheer loyalty to the Empire. Gepta had built a small chamber near the ship's drive tubes. The chamber could only be accessed from outside the side, via a four-centimeter-wide access port, and a small auxilliary craft had to negotiate the ship's jetwash in order to land there. The chamber was windowless, with two-meter-thick walls to keep Gepta's destructive lifeform contained inside. In order to enter the chamber, Gepta had to revert to his normal slug-like shape in order to enter it. Contained within the chamber was the deadly lifeform that Gepta had used to destroy the planet Tund. The Wennis destroyed a small group of Oswaft during the fight for the ThonBoka, when it ejected a miniscule sample of Gepta's bio-weapon into the mouth of the ThonBoka. However, another such attack never occurred, as the Wennis was destroyed when Klyn Shanga forced Osuno Whett's small ship to collide with the cruiser. Whett's ship ripped the Wennis apart at the middle, and the cruiser exploded.

this was one of the two Bith cities involved in the conflict that left the planet Clak'Dor VII an ecological wasteland. The strife was the result of a dispute over patent rights to a new stardrive, thought to be owned by Nozho and Weogar. Nozho investigators blackmailed the neutral arbitrator in order to sway his decision, while Weogar's mayor refused to honor the falsified decision. Both cities began producing the stardrive, and the increased trade competition led to the first Bith war in a million years. Nozho struck first, launching a chemical attack that wiped out most of Weogar's population. Weogar's retailiation was a biological weapon that mutated the genetic structure of any life form it contacted, leaving Nozho a desolate land filled with genetic monsters. The survivors were forced to build hermetically-sealed cities in order to survive the devastation. Because of the fact that it survived, Weogar became the ostensible capital of Clak'Dor VII.

this woman, a former naval Admiral, took command of the military on his homeworld of Vannix, shortly after the Battle of Coruscant. After Presider Sakins looted the planetary treasury and fled the planet, Werl struggled with Senator Addath Gadan in an effort to restore stability to the planet. Where the Senator favored appeasing the Yuuzhan Vong, Admiral Werl wanted to bring military force to bear against the alien invaders. Admiral Werl agreed to help Leia Organa Solo by providing submersible vehicles which could be used against the alien invaders, in exchange for Solo's help in winning the election. Both parties feared that Senator Gadan's stance on appeasing the Yuuzhan Vong would simply hand Vannix over to the aliens as a new operational base. With a clever bit of manipulation and the help of Fasald Ghem, Leia managed to doom Senator Gadan's career, clearing the way for Admiral Werl to be elected Presider.
this self-important Imperial officer served the Navy as a Captain during the years following the Battle of Yavin. When Darth Vader returned to the Emperor's side, Captain Wermis was assigned to the first task force assembled to track down the heroes who destroyed the first Death Star. Wermis hated being subordinate to Vader, and often spoke condescendingly to the Dark Lord of the Sith. Vader, recognizing the need to locate the Alliance quickly, tolerated Wermis' jibes long enough to reach The Wheel, where he hoped to capture Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, and Leia Organa in one swift action. Although Skywalker escaped from The Wheel, Wermis didn't suffer a similar fate to other Imperial officers who failed Vader. He was allowed to continue his service to the Dark Lord of the Sith, although Vader relished in putting Wermis into positions where his lack of courage forced him to retreat. It was later discovered that Wermis was a native of the planet Anaxes, and a member of a long line of naval officers from the planet.

the son of Imperial Governor Marcellin Wessel, this Imperial General threw in his lot with Carnor Jax, in the wake of the destruction of Emperor Palpatine's clones on Byss. Jax commanded him to hunt down Kir Kanos at any cost, for the former Royal Imperial Guard held the secrets of Jax's past. He hoped to capture Kanos on Phaeda, after Colonel Shev's men were eliminated singlehandedly by Kanos. He knew of Shev's corrupt ways, and felt that Shev would ignore Jax's orders to stand down and avoid Kanos. In this he was correct, as they discovered when they arrived at Phaeda. Wessel and Jax managed to gather information which had Kanos fleeing to Yinchorr, and Jax ordered Wessel to take the Emperor's Revenge to Yinchorr to capture Kanos. Jax accompanied them, wanting to witness Kanos' destruction first-hand. However, Wessel was overconfident when he was able to capture the Scimitar Assault Bomber stolen by Kanos on Phaeda. He ordered the bomber brought aboard the Emperor's Revenge and opened, so that he could personally bring Kanos into custody. Jax recognized the trick being played on him by Kanos, and fled the Star Destroyer just before Wessel forced open the hatch to the bomber. The APA-5 dorid Kanos had placed in the pilot's seat announced the destruction of the bomber, and the explosion which resulted destroyed the Emperor's Revenge. Wessel and most of his troops were killed in the explosion, as Jax and Blim fled to the surface of Yinchorr in a shuttle.

formerly Lira Blissex, she is the daughter of Walex Blissex, the man who created the Victory-class Star Destroyers. Although she was part of the group that designed the Venator-clas Star Destroyer, she despised the Old Republic and what it stood for, and chose to support the New Order in the wake of the Clone Wars. To this end, she married Denn Wessex and turned her abilities to the assistance of the Imperial Navy. She took her father's work and her own and expanded upon both, creating the original designs for the Imperator-class Star Destroyer. She later worked with her husband in an attempt to kidnap her father and coerce him to provide her more information about starship design. The attempt failed, and Lira barely escaped the destruction of the Subjugator.

Wessiri Antilles, Iella
this Corellian female was an associate of Corran Horn and Gil Bastra. She was married to Diric Wessiri, and was a member of the New Republic Security forces. She and Corran were teamed up in a tour of duty that involved trips to Kessel. She was later planted on Coruscant as an undercover agent, assuming the alias of Irin Fossyr, a representative of the Rohair Biochemical Clinic. In this capacity, she assisted Wedge Antilles and Rogue Squadron when they were sent to Coruscant to knock out the planet's shields. The offensive was successful, despite the fact that the Krytos virus was loose, and Iella emerged from her anonymity. She was chosen to assist Halla Ettyk during the trial of Tycho Celchu, and was busy gathering data when her husband, Diric, reappeared after being in Imperial captivity. She had given him up for dead, and was quickly becoming friends with Wedge Antilles. She remained loyal to Diric, and was both ecstatic and concerned at his presence. While she loved having him back, Diric was physically emaciated and tried to remain as active as he was in the past. He was constantly talkign with Tycho Celchu, and was convinved of his innocence despite Iella's evidence. When Nawara Ven told her that he was going to produce an Imperial witness to solve the Celchu case once and for all, she discovered that the Imperial wanted to meet only with Ven and herself. She agreed, and met Kirtan Loor in a secret entrance to the Imperial Justice building. However, her husband Diric had learned that an Imperial had been captured, and he believed it to be Evir Derricote. Diric ambushed the three of them as they emerged at the prosecutor's level, and began firing shots. He caught Ven in the right hip before fatally wounding Loor. Iella acted quickly to try and save their witness and bring the assassin to justice, and shot her weapon several times. It was only after the shooting stopped that she realized who the attacker was. Diric died from his wounds just as Kirtan Loor did. Iella was very distraught, but continued on the case until Corran Horn returned to prove Celchu innocent. She also discovered that she felt some attraction to Wedge Antilles, who was two years older than her, but his duties kept them from becoming serious. Iella remained with the New Republic, and served with Elscol Loro during the infiltration of Thyferra during the Bacta War. She later joined the New Republic Intelligence agency, and was one of the key investigators working to hunt down Leonia Tavira and the Invids. She was also one of the agents who was blind-dropped into Adumari society, just before the planet opened negotiations between the Republic and the Empire for membership. She had felt that her work had distanced her from Wedge, along with his relationship with Qwi Xux. However, they were reunited on Adumar, where Wedge explained that his relationship with Qwi had ended. They rekindled their romance in the face of a civil war started because of the actions of Tomer Darpen. After the battle was over and Darpen had been arrested, Iella was named to be the Republic's key Intelligence contact on Adumar, in his place. She also agreed to marry Wedge, and together they started a family of their own. After the Second Battle of Coruscant, Iella became one of the founding members of the Inner Circle formed by Wedge, leading the intelligence branch of the group's activities.

Iella's husband, and one of the Alliance supporters covered up by Gil Bastra. He disappeared after Kirtan Loor nearly caught them on Corellia, and was captured by the Empire during a sweep of suspected Alliance supporters. He was reconditioned, and assigned to the slave labor pool working under Evir Derricote on the Krytos project. It was Diric who captured Aril Nunb on Coruscant, for use as a subject in the testing of the Krytos virus. Diric was eventually freed from captivity, and returned to his wife's side on Coruscant. Despite the fact that he had withered away to a skeletal man with thin, graying hair, Diric's spirit remained keen and vigorous, and his eyes continued to burn with intensity. He became wrapped up in the trial of Tycho Celchu, and spent many hours interviewing the pilot. Diric was convinced that Celchu was innocent, and tried to explain this to Iella, who was working to convict him. When Diric realized that a high-ranking Imperial official had surrendered to Nawara Ven, and wanted to meet with only Ven and Iella, he was convinced that it was Evir Derricote. He suddenly became highly focused on killing the Imperial who had enslaved him, and plotted to meet them as they exitted the turbolift to the courtroom. Diric's ambush succeeded, but with highly unexpected results. His first shot caught Nawara Ven in the hip. His next shots fatally wounded the Imperial, but it was Kirtan Loor, not Derricote. In response to the attack, Iella Wessiri took her own actions and shot down the attacker, not realizing that it was her own husband. Diric died from his wounds, as did Kirtan Loor.

Located in the Besh Gorgon System of the Mid Rim, this space station resembled a huge wheel, with a central axis consisting of the main fuselage of the station. This axis was an immense cylinder, and at its midpoint there were four main spokes leading out to the circular promenade. Sprouting from the circular section were almost 100 docking piers, allowing any size ship to safely approach and dock with the Wheel. Beyond these luxury docks, thousands of bouys were placed to allow for less expensive docking, with shuttle providing guests with transport to the station. The outer section of The Wheel, which gave the station its name, was a sprawlign city with an untold number of casinos. Deep in the central axis was also a gladiator arena, where all manner of beings were forced to fight to the death for the entertainment and wagering of The Wheel's visitors. During the height of the New Order, The Wheel was situated inside an "immunity sphere," which meant that Imperial ships were not allowed to come to the station and everybody else could enjoy themselves while they were aboard. However, Senator Simon Greyshade, the station's administrator at the time, paid his taxes regularly and often to appease the Empire. He also adhered to the Empire's anti-alien biases, and the station catered to humans and near-humans while assuming alien species were "guilty until proven innocent."
(ND, MC18, MC19)
this was one of the non-standard face cards that sometimes appeared in a sabacc deck, especially if the deck was used for telling a being's fortune. When it appeared during a fortune-telling, the Wheel indicated any number of things involving luck.

It all depended on the cards that were drawn before or after it.
developed by Gallis-Tech, wheelbikes were popular sport vehicles which found a niche on worlds were repulsorlift engines failed to work properly. The wheelbike was a large wheel, which was propelled by an internal mechanism. The rider sat within the wheel and controlled it with a set of handlebars. Balance was an important part of riding a wheelbike, since the rider's center of gravity was well above the ground. The civilian model of the wheelbike was even harder to control, since the passenger sat behind and above the operator. In the military version, the passenger seat was replaced with a repeating blaster. A series of gyrostabilizers helped keep the wheelbike upright as it moved across varied terrain.
