this man was part of the hunting party arranged by Jameson and Lajar Weqill. Unfortunately, Zonder was killed by a pack of crazed draagax.
this fur-covered Selonian was one of the many Jedi Knights who fought for the Old Republic during the height of the Clone Wars. Zonder was the Padawan learner chosen by Barriss Offee, just before they were dispatched to Felucia to capture Shu Mai on Felucia. Their mission was part of the Republic's plan to capture all the leaders of the Confederacy of Independent Systems, in an effort to force Count Dooku to surrender. Zonder, along with Ekria and Drake Lo'gaan, managed to intercept the communication of Order 66 to Commander Bly on Felucia. Interestingly, they found that it had been sent on a secure Republic link, but with encryption used by the Confederacy of Independent Systems. Unfortunately, they discovered the message's true intent too late, and were forced to stand by as Aayla Secura was cut down by Bly and his clones. After escaping from Felucia, Zonder, Ekria, and Drake returned to Coruscant as refugees, then slipped into the Jedi Temple. There, Ekria erased all information on them from the computer banks of the Jedi Archives, allowing them to continue to operate undercover. The Padawans then tried to blend in by getting normal jobs, but Zonder was sent to a work crew while Drake was taken to a COMPNOR meeting. He was placed on the work detail that was to be sent to Byss to complete the building of the Emerald Splendor Estates, unaware that the entire group of aliens destined for Byss was to be executed.

Zone of Self-Containment
developed by Jenna Zan Arbor from a base on Vanqor, during the years leading up to the Clone Wars, this drug caused almost immediate unconsciousness when breathed by most humans and humanoid races. The drug was a liquid that was colorless and odorless, so it could be administered to prisoners without their knowledge when they were brought into a facility and bathed or given a drink of water. The drug acted quickly, putting victims to sleep and altering their mental conditions. Upon waking, victims found that anything that was bothering them no longer seemed to matter. Everything was right with the world, and any urge to fight against the things that bothered them was swept away and replaced with a sense of calm and peace. One interesting side effect of the Zone of Self-Containment - and part of Zan Arbor's continued research - was that the drug limited a Force-sensitive being unable to commune with the Force on any but the most basic levels. This was borne out when Anakin Skywalker was captured on Vanqor and drugged, some years before the Battle of Geonosis. The Jedi traced the Zone and Zan Arbor to Romin, where they discovered that Granta Omega and Roy Teda were supporting Zan Arbor's development efforts. The three criminals were trying to find a way to disperse the Zone without attracting attention, and had nearly perfected a water-borne delivery mechanism when they were forced off Romin. They nearly succeeded in developing a system at the Blackwater Systems facility on Falleen, but this facility was also discovered by the Jedi.

There were heavy-gravity mountains, ammonia seas, glaciers, swamplands, and even a zero-gravity chamber.
this desolate planet was located on the far rim of the galaxy. Its surface was dominated by canyons and ravines dotted by sparse vegetation.
Zonnos Anjiliac Priare
this Hutt, the eldest child of Popara the Hutt, was known to other Hutts as Zonnos the Lesser. He was known to have maintained a group of Wookiee bodyguards during the early years of the New Order. Dspite his familial connection to Popara, Zonnos operated to his own agenda, which sometimes conflicted with that of his parent. Specifically, Zonnos was angry and jealous that Popara gave so much attention to his other offspring, Mika, and was willing to do whatever it took keep Mika in the background of the Anjiliac clan's operations. When Mika was stranded on Endregaad, Zonnos arranged to have a group of Bomu clan Rodians waylay the resuce mission. When the Bomu failed and Mika returned to Nar Shaddaa, Zonnos feigned relief, but refused to admit to any connection to the Bomu. For their part, the Bomu also refused to admit to a link, claiming that they had been hired by a third party. In the wake of Popara's murder and Mika's flight from Anjiliac Towers, Zonnos assumed control of the kajidic. Unknown to Mika, Zonnos had been taking tempest, and he went into a killing rage after Popara's death. Zonnos captured the agents who had been working for Popara, and ordered their immediate interrogation and execution. Vago, however, secretly hired them to track down Mika and the source of the tempest spice. With the agents freed, Zonnos placed a significant bounty on their heads, in an effort to entice most of Nar Shaddaa into recapturing them. In an effort to avenge the death of Popara, Zonnos apprehended Vago and held the Hutt captive, using his H-3PO droids to set a trap for the agents. His trap managed to capture a handful of the agents, as well as Angela Krin and Mika himself. During the interrogation of the captives, Zonnos experienced one of the most intense tempest highs of his life, and he shouted and screamed at any being who talked to him. In the midst of the interrogation, however, the tempest became too much for Zonnos. His mind snapped, and he went into a killing rage. The agents managed to get free before Zonnos could have them executed, and they captured the slobbering Zonnos. This fit in well with Mika's own plans, as he now had eliminated the two Hutts in the way of his own control of the Anjiliac clan.
Zonnos the Great

this woman was one of Krayn's most trusted lieutenants, some four years after the Battle of Naboo. Zora and Rashtah the Wookiee were the point beings in many of Krayn's hijacking missions. Zora had joined Krayn's band a year before, and it was later revealed that Zora was a pseudonym, adopted by the Jedi Knight Siri Tachi. Siri had been sent on a mission to infiltrate Krayn's organization, and he had no idea that she was connected to the Jedi. When the slavers' ship was infiltrated by Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker, who had been accompanying a Colicoid convoy, Zora managed to trap Anakin aboard the ship while forcing Obi-Wan's small shuttle to abandon him. Zora claimed Anakin was nothing but a slave, then confiscated Anakin's lightsaber. Later, however, she revealed that the Zora identity was developed to get her inside Krayn's organization, and that she was still a Jedi Knight.
this native of Arda-2 was under the control of Mag Doum, to whom he owed a great deal of money. Doum ordered Kiros to control Leia Organa while she was on the planet trying to resolve the puzzle of the T-6 diodem. Kiros and his son, Zon, tried to contain Leia at the Qualo's palace, but were forced to hide her in the Colla-Di caves after Luke Skywalker tried to rescue her. After Leia and Zon escaped from the kdak and Luke rescued them, Kiros decided to fight back against Doum. He exposed the criminal in front of the merchants and executives of Tun Wala, but was abducted by Imperial forces who had descended on the planet. Kiros was killed trying to attack Darth Vader.
Kiros Zorad's son, Zon accompanied Leia Organa into the Colla-Di caverns, after she had been captured on Arda-2. They were attacked by a kdak while inside the caverns, but they managed to squeeze into a small passage and escape. Zon was an excellent pilot, and took Cova's place when the Tun Walans fought back against the Empire. He flew an X-Wing against the Imperial fleet, but took severe damage trying to rescue his father. He then crashed his damaged ship into Darth Vader's Star Destroyer, sacrificing himself to drive off the fleet.
this Ewok was a former shaman, who was exiled from his tribe when he became an evil sorcerer. Zorak seduced Teebo into becoming his apprentice, preying on Teebo's own frustration at the pace of his training under Logray. Logray, upon learning of Teebo's plans, set out with Wicket, Kneesaa, and Latara to rescue him from Zorak. Zorak, however, captured the rescue party. This action broke the "spell" in which Teebo had been living, and he defeated Zorak in combat and freed his friends.
Zorba Desilijic Tiure
Zorba was Jabba the Hutt's father, a huge Hutt with stringy white hair and a white beard. The fact that he had hair at all, let alone a full head and beard's worth, made Zorba something of a mutant among his fellow Hutts. He kept his hair braided, in order to keep it from falling into his face. Zorba was 400 years old when he birthed Jabba, and taught Jabba everything he could about the politics of Nal Hutta's criminal organizations. Just as ruthless and conniving as Jabba, Zorba was imprisoned on Kip for illegally mining ulikuo gemstones when Jabba was killed on Tatooine. When Zorba was set free by a group of pirates who attacked Kip, he returned to Tatooine, hoping to join his son's empire. It was later discovered that Zorba's escape had been engineered by Ysanne Isard, in an effort to recapture Cloud City. When Zorba found that Jabba had been killed by Princess Leia, he immediately sought her out for revenge. On this path, he won Cloud City from Lando Calrissian in a rigged sabacc match. He then tried to swap the Jedi Prince Ken for Princess Leia, who was being held by Trioculus. Leia and Ken escaped, and Zorba had Trioculus entombed in carbonite. After capturing Leia on Hologram Fun World, Zorba tried to take her to the Great Pit of Carkoon, on Tatooine, to feed her to the Sarlacc. He was intercepted by the Grand Moffs, who unfroze Trioculus, captured Leia, and then threw Zorba into the Sarlacc Pit. Fortunately for Zorba, the Sarlacc spit him out.

this Yevethan served as the Minister of Homeland Security on N'zoth, during the years leading up to the Yuuzhan Vong invasion of the galaxy. He believed that learning the Basic language would help him understand his enemies, but it actually angered his fellow Yevetha to the point that they nearly exiled him. Xong proved hiw worth, however, and was allowed to continue his service. Xong agreed to turn over a Yuuzhan Vong spy, captured during the aliens' invasion of the galaxy, to the New Republic. However, rather than turning over a living being, Xong ordered that the spy be brutally interrogated and executed in front of the Republic's agents. Xong than declared that the spy's body could be "taken back to your vile masters."
this was the innermost world in the Zorbia System, located in the Moddell Sector of the galaxy.
this temperate planet, the second world in the Zorbia System, was located in the Moddell Sector of the galaxy. It was home to a colony of humans whose language was an obscure derivation of the Corellian language, which led many xenoarchaeologists to believe the Zorbian population sprang from a long-lost Corellian colony. The Zorbian population had records which dated back more than a thousand years before the Galactic Civil War, predating the Old Republic's earliest excursions into the Moddell Sector. The planet's inhabitants were known as pirates and criminals who largely preyed on each other, although occasional ambushes in other parts of the sector were not uncommon.
this was the third and outermost world in the Zorbia System, located in the Moddell Sector of the galaxy.

this Ithorian is somewhat of a rogue, for he created a plot to take control of the galaxy. He wears a form of Ithorian battle armor, and protects himself with a group of guard droids; this show of force is yet another example of his roguish behavior. Zorneth is an expert in the fields of animal husbandry and botany, and was a contemporary associate of Klorr Vilia. When Vilia believed that he had created the universal herb, he invited to Zorneth to taste it. Zorneth declined, because he was a vegetarian and Vilia had seasoned meat with the new herb, savorium. Vilia then consumed the first taste, and was affected by the bliss-inducing properties of the herb. Zorneth took Vilia into his care, and eventually sorted through enough of Vilia's notes to deduce how savorium was propogated. Zorneth then realized that the affects of savorium would create a mindless workforce that could be exploited by the evil powers in the galaxy. He took Vilia into hiding, and began dosing warring peoples to test the strength of the herb. The results were astounding, and Zorneth tried to keep it secret. A small sample was stolen from Vilia's lab, and a group of Smilers was created. Zorneth moved to protect them, creating a Caretaker Virus to cause droids to protect Smilers around them. It was about five years after the discovery of savorium that Zorneth realized he could use it to subjugate the meat-eating species of the galaxy, paving the way for the peaceful vegetarians to control the stars. He began growing large amounts of savorium aboard his herd ship, and jealously protected it. At this time, he employed C-3PO as a translator and R2-D2 as a worker. The droids helped Zorneth defeat Dictator-Forever Craw, who had kidnapped Vilia in an attempt to steal the secret of savorium. However, Craw's forces pursued Zorneth's fleeing herd ship. This caused several of Zorneth's droids, including PDA6, to activate the self-destruct programs Zorneth created for use if capture was imminent. Zorneth pursued Vilia into the savorium grove as his ship's defenses destroyed the grove. Both Vilia and Zorneth were consumed in the explosion.
this Ithorian surname was believed to mean "historian", according to historian who studied the Ithorian race.

this common, albeit archaic, Zabrak surname meant "physician" - or, more literally, "fate guardian".
a Cavrilhu pirate captain from whom Niles Ferrier stole a number of patrol ships. Ferrier sold the ships to Grand Admiral Thrawn, and Zothip vowed to get revenge on Ferrier. Zothip was born on the planet Bestine, but settled his operation in the Amorris System. Zithip got his chance when Moff Disra offered him a supply of clones from Imperial storehouses in return for the production of a supply of Preybird-class starfighters. Zothip agreed to the deal, and used his clones to augment his pirate ranks. Using flash imprinting to give the clones the necessary characteristics, Zothip was able to send out a large force of pirates in a relatively short time. When the Cavrilhu tried to intercept a New Republic convoy at Iphigin, however, Luke Skywalker discovered the clones on one of the raiding ships. He went in search of the clones, infiltrating Zothip's base in the Kauron asteroid belt. It was at this time that Major Tierce, acting outside of Disra's approval, cut off the supply of clones in order to shore up Imperial defenses. Zothip agreed to continue working with Disra, and was in charge of the small fleet that tried to intercept Admiral Pellaeon at Pesitiin. The short battle resulted in the loss of one of Zothip's Kaloth-class battle cruisers, and Zothip travelled to Bastion to obtain compensation for the loss. Unfortunately for him, Karoly D'ulin was trying to tail Han Solo and Lando Calrissian when she stumbled upon the pirates. She followed them to Moff Disra's apartments, where Zothip demanded twenty million credits from Disra. Disra declined, and Zothip and his men tried to attack. Major Tierce managed to stop several of the pirates, and Karoly took out several more. Zothip tried to kill Disra, but Karoly buried a knife in his back and split his spine.

Zoul Lavor Xariv Lar
this legendary Bitthaevrian warrior was a Major in the Guiteica Militia, and was best-known for his decades-long feud with Major Quaal Stavi Giniras. The pair fought each other more than 400 times, each time inflicting heavy damage to the other. However, both warriors were back challenging each other as soon as they healed. Over fifty years' time, Lar had defeated Giniras 212 victories to 211. Only the fact that Giniras died of old age stopped the rivalry. In the end, Lar took one of his own elbow quill and imbedded it in Giniras' dematoil, which he buried with Giniras in the hills of s'Korth'an.

this female Advozse was the daughter of Zom Dubrotin. During the Galactic Civil War, she was also a secret ally of the Alliance, keeping the Alliance informed of activities in the Riflorii System. Later, when the Yuuzhan Vong launched their invasion of the galaxy, Zsall assumed control of the Bomminde family, ensuring that they survived the attack on Riflor and helping any other Advozsec survivors reach safety. True to her nature, Zsall also provided the New Republic with any information gathered on Yuuzhan Vong fleet movements in the area.
Zsing, Thak Val
this grizzled, red-haired man was the leader of the Desert Wind terrorist group, which opposed the tyranny of the Five Families on the planet Ord Cestus, during the years leading up to the Clone Wars. His grandfather was once a prisoner of the Cestus prison facilities, and he passed on a great deal of knowledge about the underground lair of the Five Families to his son and grandson. Thak Val Zsing took control of Desert Wind nearly thirty years before the Battle of Geonosis. A former history professor at one of Cestus' outlying schools, he found himself unemployed when the Families cut off all funding for social programs and utilities to the area in which he taught. In addition to his own hardships, Thak Val Zsing witnessed the troubles forced upon the families of his students. Rather than sit back and accept his fate, he began training soldiers for Desert Wind. After surviving the attack that left Desert Wind decimated, Thak Val Zsing hid out in the desert for many years, biding his time in order to once again regroup. He saw his chance when Jedi Master Kit Fisto and an ARC trooper known as Nate began recruiting locals for a chance to strike back at the rulers of Ord Cestus. He did his best to keep up with the new recruits, but deep down Thak Val Zsing was tired of fighting. He recognized that he was losing leadership of Desert Wind to Master Fisto, but he also realized that Desert Wind was finally striking back against the Five Families. After a successful terrorist attack on a power supply facility, he grabbed a bottle of Chandrilan brandy and got drunk. He was so inebriated that he failed to raise any alarm when he noticed a group of plastidroids and JK-series security droids infiltrate their base, fearing for his own life, and his lack of action led to the deaths of many Desert Wind fighters. In the aftermath of the raid, his mind snapped. He was eventually rescued, but was never the same again. He remained quite cognizent of his surroundings, however, and was one of the first to notice that the Five Families had retreated to their hidden bunker when the Nexu arrived in orbit around Ord Cestus. He agreed to assist Jangotat in infiltrating the compound, then decided to redeem himself by strapping an explosive device to his chest and entering the complex first. When he was surrounded by battle droids, he detonated the explosive, clearing the way for Jangotat to enter.
a pudgy, balding man with a large gray moustache, Zsinj was a native of the planet Fondor. As an Imperial warlord who rose to power in the wake of the Battle of Endor, Zsinj controlled the Quelii sector. He served the Empire as Captain of the Victory-class Star Destroyer Iron Fist before the Battle of Endor destroyed the Empire. Zsinj decided to become a rogue, and fled Imperial service to carve out his own empire. In time, Zsinj proclaimed himself a Warlord and commanded one of the more potent forces opposing the New Republic. After several years, Zsinj managed to obtain possession of a Super-class Star Destroyer, which he renamed Iron Fist in honor of his first command. He began raiding New Republic supply convoys, and was a thorn in the New Republic's side. It was discovered that he was not in league with Ysanne Isard and her bid to control the Empire. In fact, Zsinj often tried to thwart her activities. It was during this time that Zsinj began wearing the all-white uniform of a Grand Admiral, even though he had never held the position in Imperial service, nor was he officially aligned with the Empire. A devious man and conniving man who held a great deal of emphasis on appearances, Zsinj often would drink non-alcoholic beverages with his subordinates, feigning inebriation to see how his people would react. Han Solo agreed to take a fleet and search out Zsinj in an effort to bring the warlord down and end his reign of terror. Zsinj remained one step ahead of the Republic's forces for several years before they managed to destroy the Razor's Kiss, a second Super-class destroyer being built at Kuat Drive Yards. Zsinj used the parts recovered from the Razor's Kiss to form the Second Death, and used the mock-up during the Battle of Selaggis. Zsinj was nearly defeated at Vahaba before fleeing to Selaggis, where Solo nearly destroyed him. In a bold move, he fled the battle behind a screen formed by Orbital Nightcloak satellites, then detonated the Second Death in order to fool Solo and the Republic into believing that the Iron Fist was gone. Zsinj himself fled the battle in a shuttle, completing the illusion. He then went into hiding at Rancor Base, on Dathomir, where he began planning his next assault. At Dathomir, Zsinj tried to force the New Republic into action by setting up an orbital nightcloak to freeze the planet and kill its inhabitants, but the Republic's forces were able to defeat the nightcloak and destroy the Iron Fist. Zsinj, who was on board the ship when it was destroyed, was killed.

this was one of the strongest Trandoshan clans who operated a slaving ring in the Kashyyyk System during the height of the Galactic Civil War. The Zssik clan was usually at odds with the Blackscales, a conflict that came to a head on the Avatar Space Platform when members of both factions were unable to contain their aggression and launched into a full-scale riot. Imperial forces eventually stepped in to detain the two groups, but only after a group of freelance operatives managed to help several Wookiee slaves escape.

this Kubaz chef worked for Beldorion, during the Hutt's early years on Nam Chorios. Zubindi was adept at genetically and hormonally manipulating insects, forcing them to grow many times larger than their normal size. This provided the Hutt with a ready supply of large, fleshy insects for appetizers or full meals. It was Zubindi who discovered how to grow drochs to larger sizes, and this discovery led to the emergence of Dzym as a power on Nam Chorios. Zubindi died soon after, when Dzym understood the power he wielded and used the Kubaz as a search of life energy.

a Gand bounty hunter employed by Darth Vader to find the Millennium Falcon. He descended from a long line of successful findsmen, and was one of the few young findsmen who left Gand to find work in the galaxy. He had a uncanny knack for finding his quarry, which he attributed to his adherence to elaborate and arcance rituals. Zuckuss joined the Bounty Hunters Guild shortly after the Battle of Yavin, and was partnered with Bossk on several training missions. They failed to recover Nil Posondum from Boba Fett, then failed to intercept Fett when he tried to join the Guild. Zuckuss was also involved in the acquisition of Oph Nar Dinnid from the Shell Hutts, another mission that resulted in failure. It was during this time that Zuckuss was also working directly for Cradossk, who hoped to eliminate his son Bossk before the younger Trandoshan could kill him. However, Zuckuss was also working for Bossk, and double-crossed Cradossk after returning from Circumtore. Several years after, Zuckuss had earned enough credits to purchase a heavily-modified starship known as the Mist Hunter, built by a consortium of Gands he led. He was hired by Jabba the Hutt, and was eventually paired with 4-LOM on many bounty missions. During one such mission, a female acquisition struggled to escape, and pulled off the mask Zuckuss wore to keep in the ammonia atmosphere he breathed. The reflexive breaths of oxygen he inhaled severely burned his lungs, and left Zuckuss disabled. Thus, he and 4-LOM began accepting Hunts on the side, trying to obtain enough credits to pay of new lungs. For this reason, Zuckuss and 4-LOM brought down Imperial Governor Nardix for the Alliance. This placed tem on the Empire's Most Wanted list, but Jabba retained them anyway. Jabba sent the two to Darth Vader as unofficial emissaries to the Empire, and they entered the Hoth System as the Battle of Hoth was concluding. The pair disabled the transport ship Bright Hope, in hopes of appeasing the Empire. After accepting the Hunt, they attempted to capture the survivors on the Hope, to turn them into the Empire for their combined bounties. However, the Alliance personnel managed to turn the two hunters from Imperial service. Zuckuss worked with 4-LOM and Toryn Farr to rescue the crew of the Hope, and they fled to the Alliance rendezvous point beyond the galactic core. There, the Alliance healed Zuckuss' lungs while accepting the two hunters into their ranks. General Rieekan enlisted the two hunters in the rescue attempt on Han Solo. They worked with several other hunters to intercept Boba Fett on Gall, but failed to recover Solo's body. Zuckuss himself was captured and used as Fett's stand-in, during the delivery of Solo's frozen body to Jabba the Hutt. Fett dressed the Gand in Mandalorian armor, and put 4-LOM's inert form on a repulsorsled. When they emerged from Slave I, Jabba's minions attacked them, only to discover their true identity as Fett held them off. Zuckuss managed to recover 4-LOM's body and have the droid restored to action, but a memory wipe was requried in order to get it working again. The operation left 4-LOM without any of its previous programming, and their collaboration was effectively finished. Zuckuss chose not to rejoin the Alliance, instead returning to bounty hunting. He did work together with 4-LOM once more, during the capture of Drawmas Sma'da, but only because 4-LOM needed someone to assist it in the capture.
