Aggy
this name, which meant "jovial", was common among Gungan males. (GCG)

Agira, Nyrat
this woman was a frequent patron of the Outlander Club, some ten years after the Battle of Naboo. Easily distinguished by red hair which was done up in the Solloops style, Nyrat Agira was constantly trying to become part of the "in" crowd. Her eyes had been surgically altered to be more appealing, in an effort to attract a potential mate. An elaborate tattoo adorned her abdomen, announcing her religious affiliation as a member of the Zealots of Psusan. Nyrat cruised the club scene, especially the Outlander Club, in order to make sure she was seen as well as to observe the latest trends. Note that Inside the Worlds of Star Wars: Episode II names this character as Agira Nyrat. (OWS, SWDB, IWE2)

Agonizer
this Imperial-class Star Destroyer was under the command of Admiral Teren Rogriss. It was dispatched to Adumar to escort the 181st Fighter Group during the negotiations between the Adumari, the New Republic, and the Empire. Rogriss took the ship out of the Adumar system when the Adumari chose to side with the New Republic, then he joined the Adumari armed forces. The Agonizer later returned to Adumar under Imperial orders to subjugate the planet. However, the New Republic was able to mass a defensive fleet and drive off the Imperials. The Agonizer took heavy damage during the battle, but survived. (SOC, SOA)

Agonizer
this unusual, experimental weapon was developed by the Confederacy of Independent Systems during the height of the Clone Wars. Like many of the weapons developed for the Separatists, the agonizer was designed to cause intense physical pain to a clone trooper, without causing physical trauma. The weapon emitted microsonic laser beam that caused the body to create massive amounts of prostaglandin. If not treated immediately, a victim often died from sensory overload. (MJH)

Agonizer-6
this was the brand name of Arakyd's nerve disruption system. Resembling tall, three-legged spider, the Agonizer-6 was produced for use by the Empire in controlling large crowds. The Agonizer-6 was equipped with an AI-4 droid brain, making it a fully-functional, independent crowd control device. The droid brain was stripped of any life preservation programming, and was also devoid of personality modules. These devices, originally designed to incapacitate a living being by sending out a neural impulse that disrupted the normal operation of the nervous system, were later used by the Empire as interrogation tools. The manufacture of the Agonizer-6 was later outlawed by the New Republic. (EGW)

Agony Inducer
this unusually cruel device was used during interrogations. Capable of inflicting a wide range of pain, an agony inducer allowed its user to gradually or suddenly elevate the amount of pain a victim was feeling. (MC16)

Agony of Tarkin, The
this opera was written and produced by the Imperial Opera Company, shortly after the Battle of Hoth. (MJEH)

Agorffi
a large, strong alien race, they have incredible brawn and strength. Like the Wookiees, they were hunted by the Empire for use as slaves. (GG9)

Agoris, Bryce
this native of Alderaan was, at one time, a Lieutenant in the Alliance's Infiltrators unit, before he deserted shortly before the Battle of Endor. With the help of Myrgaanti Shi-iki, Agoris stole more than two million credits worth of equipment when he deserted, and became a freelance mercenary. Agrois and Myrgaanti traveled in the modified starship Warhog. (SWJ6)

Agovast, Krugh
this man held the rank of Sergeant in the Alliance military, and served as the cargo master and crew chief at the Gelgelar Free Port, under the command of Arik Stijhl. (SWJ14)

AGR
this was the acronym used to describe Allied Grain and Roughage, the huge agro-combine that was founded on the planet Corellia during the Old Republic. (MBF, NEGC)

Agr
this avian predator was native to the wroshyr forests of the planet Kashyyyk. Cold-blooded by nature, the agr was known for its ferocious attacks, which only increased in violence as the agr aged. Because of this continual increase in aggression, mature agrs fought constantly for territory, and very few individuals lived more than six to eight years. The average agr hadf a wingspan of about two meters, and hunted as part of a pack made up of dozens of individuals. (GMR4)

Agra Alliance
this group, based on the planet Merisee, controlled the prices, production, and practices of the toz-growing cooperatives on the planet. (PG3)

A-Grav
this was a shortened term, used to decribe a starship's anti-gravity systems, which was popular during the Clone Wars. (MJH)

Agreement of Aid
this was the standard contract signed by officials of the University of Rudrig and the governments of those planets on which the University planned to establish a satellite campus. The Agreement laid out the proportional funding of the school, which was split between the University and the planetary government. In this way, Unviersity officials hoped to bring higher education to the Tion Hegemony, and bring its member worlds closer to the modern standards of the rest of the galaxy. (HSL)

Agri, Pellas
this man was an agent of House Pelagia who worked as a troublemaker and spy for much of his life. His father had died in a House Mecetti prison, unjustly arrested for a crime he didn't commit. This left young Agri with a burning hatred of House Mecetti. He was attacked by a group of thugs from House Mecetti on Lamuir IV, shortly after the Battle of Yavin. Working under the alias of Coros Telari, he had stolen a datafile from Mecetti, and was hoping to return it to his Pelagia masters. A team of Alliance agents, hoping to meet Trel Modetto aboard the Eternal Hope, were directed to the site of the attack by Janna Pallask. Their efforts in defeating the thugs saved Agri's life. He spent a great deal of time in a bacta, but owed a debt of gratitude to the Alliance agents. (TSIA)

AgriCorps
see Agricultural Corps (RESB)

Agricultural Administration
this was the primary organization, funded by the Old Republic, to oversee the production of food and the processing of agricultural products. The AgAdmin was supported by the Agricultural Corps of the Jedi Knights, which provided much of the manpower needed to bring agriculture to the far-flung worlds of the Republic. (WOTC)

Agricultural Corps
this vast body of Jedi trainees was part of the the Jedi Council's student development systems. Working in support of the Old Republic's Agricultural Aministration, the AgriCorps ostensibly provided a support system for newly settled planets. Those worlds which had need of agricultural improvement - primarily terraformed worlds, but also planets damaged by industrial misuse - could petition the Agricultural Corps for assistance in bringing plantlife to their environment. Underlying the goodwill of the AgriCorps was the belief that all Jedi Padawans needed a way to learn about the nature of life and the balance it brought to the galaxy. The patience needed to nurture crops to grow in harsh environments was a direct paralle to the patience a Jedi Knight needed to discover peace in an unsettled situation. Despite these basic ideals, many students of the Force feared being placed in the AgriCorps, for such placement held the assumption that they lacked the ability to become full Jedi Knights. (RF, WOTC)

Agrierd Intergalactics
this small corporation produced a number of devices for use in fighting fires. (GFT)

Agrilat
a planet located near Corellia, Agrilat was home to a strange crystal swamp. At one time, Han Solo and Dengar participated in a dangerous swoop race there.

this unusual avian creature was native to the swamps of Corellia. (GQRG)

Agrilat Swamp Circuit
this was the most noted swoop racing course on the planet Agrilat, during the height of the Galactic Civil War. (SWGAL)

Agrirobot
this was a generic term used to describe any automaton whose primary functions involved agriculture or farming. (HSE)

Agriworld-2079
this planet is the homeworld of the Skrilling race. The name 'Agriworld-2079' is a M'shinni designation, as the M'shinni used it as one of their many agricultural colony worlds. They discovered the Skrilling race there, and even provided the name 'Skrilling' to them. The planet had no name before the M'shinni arrived. (GG12)

Agro-Militants
a group of political activists which vied for Leia Organa-Solo's favor during the early years of her tenure as the New Republic's Chief of State. (POT)

AG-series Droid
this was a series of medical droids produced during the last decades of the Old Republic. (MJH)

Ag'Tra
this was the title of the ruling noble of a given Coynite nation. At the height of the New Order, there were 29 Ag'Tra representing 29 nations. All Ag'Tra were loyal to the Coynite king and queen, and were bound by law to send one of their personal Kroyn warriors to serve as bodyguard to the En'Tra each year. (AE, PG3)

Aguarl III
this ocean world was the site of an Alliance base populated by the Mon Calamari and Quarren following the first Imperial attack on Calamari. A Quarren spy for the Empire provided the planet's location, and a TIE Bomber attack was launched against the planet. The Alliance's newly-installed defense system took out three of the four bombers, but Ranulf Trommer was able to recover minimal control of his ship and launch concussion missiles at the base. The base took grievous hits, and had to be evacuated. (ROC)

Aguilae
the female Jawa that managed the Jawa Traders scavenger lot in Mos Eisley. The name Aquilae was given to her by human customers who couldn't pronounce her given name, Khea Nkuul of the Weekkata tribe. She found that running a business in which she sold mechanical things was harder than she thought, given that she was a Jawa. So, she hired Mace Windu to be her salesman. Shortly after R2-D2 and C-3PO landed on Tatooine, after blasting away from the Tantive IV, Aquilae and Mace were forced to go to work for Jek Nkik and his tribe while trying to swing a deal with them to recover CZ-3. They barely escaped the destruction of Jek's sandcrawler by Imperial forces searching for the droids. When she finally caught up with CZ-3, it had been blasted to pieces by Zutton. She took the droid's motivator and several other parts. (GG7, EGC, SWJ11)

AH-77 Twenchok
this combat submersible was one of the many vehicles designed by Incom Industries at their main research and development facility on the planet Fresia, during the early years of the New Republic. (CCW)

Ahid, Ruceba
this man and his accomplices, Oejoe Hitiwa and Stu Hemphawar, were smugglers and small-time criminals who worked from a tiny apartment near Coruscant's entertainment district, during the years leading up to the Battle of Naboo. The Senate Bureau of Intelligence issued a bounty for their arrest, after they were implicated in a scheme to traffic illicit contraband throughout the Core Worlds. All three men were eventually captured by Jango Fett on Coruscant, while the bounty hunter was searching for Jervis Gloom. (BH)

Ahk'laht
this Noghri served as Leia Organa-Solo's bodyguard in the years prior to the appearance of Admiral Daala and the discovery of the Maw Installation. During a series of negotiations between Leia and a representative of the Barabel people, Ahk'laht physically manhandled the Barabel minister when he refused access to Alater-ka for the New Republic fleet. The political and personal embarrassment led Leia to send Ahk'laht back to Honoghr with the message that the Noghri were no longer indebted to the family of Darth Vader. (JASB)

Ah'Kra
a city on Coyn, it was also the site of the Ah'Kra'Tais starport. (PG3)

Ah'Kra'Tais

Ahleazah
this Mon Calamari female was captured during the Empire's initial occupation of Calamari and forced to work with the medical corps. The rest of her family was simply sold into slavery. She did her best to ease the suffering of her people, being moved from camp to camp in order to ensure she didn't develop any relationships. When she saved the life of a minor Imperial Navy officer, the grateful officer brought Ahleazah to his starship, where she was allowed to work with and learn from the advanced medical facilities on the ship. During her treatment of an Alliance pilot who was to undergo interrogation, Ahleazah decided that the time had come for her to act against the Empire which had destroyed her family. She treated the pilot, then got both of them to an escape pod just as the Imperial ship was leaving the Anoat System. An Alliance convoy later rescued them, and Ahleazah served the Alliance - and later, the New Republic - as a medic and healer. (HR)

(KOTOR2)

Ahr's Dive
this was one of the many taverns and restaurants located in the Spacer Quarter of Aldera, on the planet Alderaan. (CCW)

Ahsi Yim
this yojng Yuuzhan Vong Shaper was training as an adept under her domain sister, Nen Yim, during the last stages of the Yuuzhan Vong invasion of the galaxy. She was elevated to the rank of Master Shaper about a year after the Battle of Coruscant, and decided to join Nen Yim's pursuit of knowledge supporting the Jedi Heresy. When Nen Yim disppeared on her mission to locate Zonama Sekot, Ahsi Yim was assigned to work with the new Master Shape, Qelah Kwaad. Qelah Kwaad questioned the decision openly, to Supreme Overlord Shimrra himself, and inferred that Ahsi Yim had helped Nen Yim escape. Because of this, Shimrra had Ahsi Yim executed. (FP)

Ahsmar
an Alliance starfighter pilot assigned to complement Keyan Farlander while ambushing an Imperial convoy near Orron III. Ahsmar was killed in the battle. (XW)

Ahto City
this floating city was established by the Selkath on their homeworld of Manaan, more than 4,000 years before the Battle of Yavin, to provide a base of operations for the many small businesses which produced kolto. The city's primary residents were to be the many off-worlders who traveled to Manaan to work for the corporations. During the Great Sith War, the Selkath allowed both the Sith Empire and the Old Republic to maintain embassies in Ahto City, striving to maintain a balanced distribution of kolto to each side of the war. When the production of kolto suddenly stopped, the Selkath abandoned the city and returned to the oceans. (KOTOR, PH)

AI-4
this was a model of fully-functional droid brain produced by Arakyd during the height of the New Order. (EGW)

Aia
this tall humanoid was native to the moon of Bogg 4. Aia was mostly human in appearance, although white feathers covered his head and his fingers and toes were webbed. He was known on Bogg 4 as a pickpocket and thief, and many beings would have loved to tear his wings off. Aia was one of the few beings who had learned to literally fly between the moons, waiting until those moons with atmospheres grew so close that their atmospheres mingled. During these close periods, Aia could actually fly through space from moon to moon. It was in this way that Aia helped a young Boba Fett travel to Bogg 11 to recover Slave I from Honest Gjon, shortly after the Battle of Geonosis. However, even as he befriended young Boba Fett, Aia stole the boy's last credits from his pockets. (BF1)

Aiaks Fwa

Master Kuldi was assigned as the Commander of the Republic's Fifth Fleet, was later placed in charge of defending the Cularin System and the Jedi academy on Almas. However, when it was announced that the Cularin System had seceded from the Republic - although it was pointed out that it had not joined the Confederacy of Independent Systems - Master Kuldi was forced to withdraw his forces and return to Republic-controlled space. In his final transmission to Cularin, Kuldi said, "I am sorry, Cularin. You are on your own. Good luck." (LFCW)

(SWI66)

AIC-4
the AIC-4 was Sonda Armament's Armored Interface Craft, designed to fit in the belly of a Star Destroyer and deployed with troops to the surface of a planet.

It was armed with 2 laser cannons and 2 heavy repeating blasters. (SWJ2)

Aida
this planet, the primary world in the Aida System, was a sparsely-populated planet. It was a world loyal to the Empire, and solidly under the control of Governor Io Desnand during the New Order.

A derelict starship was left there, signaling the location of Lomabu III via a series of trilling Wookiee songs. The Aida System is the closest neighbor of the Lomabu System. (TBH)

Aidan Bok
Tash Arranda once came into contact with the ghost of this Jedi Knight, after opening the tome The History of the Jedi Knights on the abandoned space station of Nespis VIII. Bok had been charged with guarding the ancient Jedi library on the station shortly before the advent of Emperor Palpatine's New Order. When Palpatine ordered the extermination of the Jedi, Bok was powerless to defeat the Sith lord. He was ashamed of his failure, and remained on the station as a disembodied spirit, trapped in the book, unwilling to become one with the Force. When he helped Tash Arranda escape from the space station and Borborygmus Gog, he reconciled his shame and allowed himself to become immersed in the Force. (GOF4, GOF11)

aidedecamp
this was the handle of one of the many advisors to Cularin Senator Lavina Wren, during the years leading up to the Clone Wars.

this military operation, located in the Ailon System, had a prowess in battle that has been compared to the Mandalorians and the Imperial Royal Guard. They trained religiously, and have a 13,000-year history of success, and were allied with the Old Republic. Their basic tenets revolved around the survival of the fittest, and they believed that Emperor Palpatine was the prime example of this. They remained largely non-human in their membership, however, and were virtually disbanded by the Empire. However, the Guard's membership remained focused on their training, and in the wake of the Battle of Endor they worked diligently to eliminate any Imperial threat. (GG9, SWJ15)

Ailon System
this planetary system is the home of the Ailon Nova Guard. (GG9)

Aing-Tii Monks
this strange race of creatures inhabited the furthest reaches of the Kathol Outback, near the Kathol Rift. The monks were one of the few beings who could actually navigate through the Rift, having been seen emerging from the Rift on several occasions. As a race, the Aing-Tii were tall, edentate mammals whose bodies were covered by bony plates. They had four legs, although they most often stood erect. Their heads were covered by helmet-like plates, and were dominated by two large eyes. They had no visible mouths, but used a group of long, thin tongues to sense and communicate. The tongues were used for tasting, smelling, and feeling. Much of their bony armor was covered with intricate, painted symbols that resembled the markings seen on their strangely-organic starships. Their tails, also covered with thick plates, were prehensile and often used in defense and attack. The Aing-Tii were also Force-sensitive, although they don't use it and control it the way Jedi Knights did. No one was sure exactly why, but the Aing-Tii patrolled the Kathol Outback between the Marcol Void and the Kathol Rift looking for slave ships. They incapacitated the slavers with their Sanhedrim starships, then freed the slaves. (KO)

Aing-Tii Sanhedrim
this was another name given to the Aing-Tii Monks of the Kathol Outback. (KR)

Ainik, Renn
this Professor of Astrographics served the New Republic as the Director of Studies at the Astrographic Survey Institute.

Air Avab
this was one of the many floating cities found in the atmosphere of the planet Genarius. (WOTC)

Air Brake
this piece of equipment is used on pod racers and other high-speed ground vehicles. It collects the air moving past the vehicle and uses it to slow the vehicle down. This is accomplished through friction and directional manipulation of the air flow. They can be non-jetted or jetted, depending on the how much the racer wants to spend. A jetted air brake adds to the stopping ability of the brake by routing the forced air through one or more reverse-thrust stopping jets. (RAC)

Air Brother
this was a name, used by members of the thranta riders who lived on Bespin during the last years of the Old Republic, to describe each other. (BHAS)

Air Cake
this was a form of dessert originally created on Corellia. (LOE)

Air Cushion
this special bed is used in hospitals to help comfort burn victims. One of the few advances in medicine to come out of the Imperial armed forces, the air cushion uses a series of small repulsors to float the patients above the surface of the bed. This allows the patient to lie still without contacting their burned skin, and increases hygiene by allowing the patient to be bathed without soiling bedding. (TNR)

Air Rodeo
originally devised on Bespin, the Air Rodeo was a collection of events staged in the gas giant's Life Zone. Riders and their thrantas performed complicated maneuvers, daring tricks,and daredevil dances in the atmopshere, without the safety of a net or other protective devices. Beings from across the galaxy saw the Air Rodeo on holobids, and many more flocked to Cloud City to witness it in person. Because of the thrantas' inability to survive without the correct atmosphere, the Air Rodeo rarely traveled away from Bespin. (WOTC)

Air Snake
this unusual, legless reptile had a system of air bladders inside its body that allowed it to literally float through the air by moving its muscles in a certain way. (GMR10)

Air-2
this was TaggeCo's entry into the basic swoop market, a three-meter-long vehicle controlled by hand controls, foot pegs, and knee pressure points. The 2.35-meter-long Air-2 had a rounded front cowling with integrated maneuvering vanes and an optional windscreen. While it was exceptionally fast, with a top speed of 600 kilometers per hour, the Air-2's control system made the swoop hard to control under hard driving conditions. Han Solo escaped from a group of slavers on Bonadan by fleeing on an Air-2 swoop. Note that Star Wars Gamer magazine, issue 7, indicates that the Air-2 swoop was produced by SoroSuub, and had a maximum speed of 700 kilometers per hour. (EGV, CCG9, AEG, NEGV, GMR7)

Airam Sector
this area of the galaxy was controlled by the Empire shortly before the Battle of Endor. (XVT)

Airbarge

AirDomination
this was Bespin Motors' professional model of sling racer. It could attain speeds over 400 kilometers an hour. (SPG)

Airfleet
this was the name of Exocron's primary atmospheric defense force. The Airfleet employed heavily-modified airspeeders known as Skylarks to protect the huge Sky-Dreadnaughts which anchored its fleet. When the pirates and criminals of the Kathol Outback began invading Exocron airspace, it was decided that the force should be expanded to patrol the immediate space near Exocron. At this time, the Airfleet grew into the Exocron Combined Air-Space Fleet. (KO, VOF)

Airflow Car
this was the term used to describe any small vehicle which traveled through speciallized, tubular transportation systems on a cushion of air. These vehicles relied on changing air pressure inside the travel tube to maintain a specific velocity, allowing for rapid transit of beings and cargo. (MC20)

Airhook
this one-man, repulsorlift vehicle was developed as a personal transport. It was similar in design to the STAP vehicles used by the Trade Federation, and often had a flight ceiling of a hundred meters or more. They were especially dangerous because of the highly volatile fuel cells they used. (BHAS, GIRW)

Air-jelly
this unusual creature lived in the atmosphere of Bespin. It had a semi-transparent body that was not easily visible to human eyes. Many people claimed that, in order to actually see an air-jelly, one had to look away briefly in order to locate it. (DN1)

Airlink
the entry portal on a crawler, or any other craft which has an external connection to another craft, and operates in a hostile or vacuum environment. (CS)

Airlock
it was in this spacer bar that the Wookiee Grasheel first met Shamus Falconi. The story of their meeting is long and complex, and involved a number of angry pirates and a bottle of lum. In the end, Grasheel found himself the owner of half of the Lumrunner and Falconi's partner. (SWJ9)

Airlock
this restaurant was located aboard the deep-space repair facility 3DC/Green. (HAS)
