this Dug served as the liaison between General Ashaar Khorda and the outside world. It was Fernooda who employed both Jango Fett and Zam Wesell to retrieve the Infant of Shaa.
this vicious predator, once native to the home galaxy of the Yuuzhan Vong, was the only creature from their home which had compatible genetic material to that of a vornskr. The initial Yuuzhan Vong attempts to create a Jedi-hunting creature from pure vornskr stock proved only mildly successful, due mainly to the resulting beast's lack of ferocity. The fore xyn, however, more than made up for this lack, and it was already conditioned to respond to the commands of a Yuuzhan Vong warrior. The resulting hybrid was called a voxyn, and was extremely successful at hunting down and killing Jedi Knights. Unfortunately, the resulting hybrid was incapable of reproduction, requiring that the creation of more voxyn required the cloning of the original "queen".
an Imperial Captain, Ferob commanded the Victory-class Star Destroyer Iron Fist, under the watchful eye of Grand Admiral Thrawn, in the Unknown Regions.
this man was a member of the rebel underground on Jastro III during the Galactic Civil War. He was in love with the daughter of the Imperial Governor, but they were often forbidden to meet. They found an unexpected ally in an agent named Alexan, who forwarded messages between them. Alexan later agreed to help Ferr break a group or rebels out of the Imperial prison, provided that Ferr took the Governor's daughter with them. Ferr agreed, and the rescue attempt was successful. However, Alexan was seriously wounded in the escape, and later died of his wounds. Ferr and the Governor's daughter later learned that Alexan was, in fact, the Governor himself.

this species of insect was known to be particularly industrious and hard-working.
this was the name given to the Republic Engineering Corporation reconnaissance vessel manufactured shortly after the death of Grand Admiral Thrawn. At 28 meters in length, the Ferret recon vessel was coated with sensor-baffling materials and equipped with the latest in stealth technology, allowing it to enter hostile territory virtually undetected. Its primary mission was to obtain information about enemy territory without being detected or caught. To allow the Ferret to move quietly at sublight speeds, a unique, baffled drive system was developed which would allow the ship to move about without leaving any detectable trail for up to an hour. The primary engine system relies on chemically-generated thrust, further adding to its stealth modes. The Ferret was operated by three linked droid brains, each of which controlled certain equipment on the ship. The Ferret was lightly armed, with a pair of missile launchers being its only weaponry.
this gaunt man was a noted gunrunner who worked from a base aboard the Bazarre space station. Luke Skywalker and Lando Calrissian caught up with Ferret shortly after the Battle of Hoth, to purchase a flight of stolen TIE Fighters from him. The TIE Fighters were later used to take the Imperial outpost on Spindrift. Ferret was often accompanied by a tiny, octopus-like creature that was his pet. He tried his best to swindle the Alliance out of their credits, and even sent Luke and Lando to Patch-4 without warning them about the Watcher Beasts. Ferret then tried to incapacitate Chewbacca, but the Wookiee managed to break free and catch Ferret before he could escape. Luke and Lando returned to the Bazaare station with the TIE Fighters, much to Ferret's dismay. Ferret was allowed to go free, but the Alliance kept a close eye on his activities.

this planet was the site of the Imperial Institute of Higher Studies.
a master thief, Niles Ferrier was known throughout the galaxy as a starship hijacker. He had a great deal of skill in the use of computer linkups, and often stole ships by simply reworking a spaceport's duty roster to clear the area when he found a good ship. He was often accompanied by four or five human smugglers, a Defel wraith, and a Verpine. His passion for carrababba tabac laced with armudu spice was also widely known, and the unmistakeable combination often announced his presence. He put his starship stealing skills to good use during Grand Admiral Thrawn's reign of terror, stealing ships and selling them to Thrawn and the Empire for a large profit. While this earned him a measure of gratitude from the Empire, it left Ferrier out of the normal circle of smugglers who were beginning to band together against the newly-powerful Imperial forces. Ferrier later helped Thrawn infiltrate the blossoming smuggler's alliance, meeting with Talon Karrde and a larger group on Trogan. It was on Trogan that he managed to bribe Lieutenant Reynol Kosk into attacking the meeting, a move that directly countermanded Thrawn's own orders. When Kosk and his squad were all killed in the fighting, Thrawn could barely contain his anger, but realized Ferrier might still be of use. He ordered Ferrier's Defel companion to infiltrate the Wild Karrde and plant a datacard containing false information that implicated Karrde in the attack at Trogan. Thrawn then detained Mazzic for a short time, hinting that one of the smugglers had set up the ambush. When the smugglers met shortly afterward, Mazzic confronted Karrde about the datacard. Karrde continued talking, until Ferrier blurted out that Karrde had paid Kosk to set up the ambush. When Mazzic realized that none of the other smugglers knew what was supposed to be on the datacard, and when Karrde explained that Ferrier hadn't even been invited, Ferrier realized that he had made a bbig mistake. He tried to escape by pulling a thermal detonator from his sleeve, forcing his way to his own ship and fleeing into space.

this was the name of the capital world of the Ferro Systems. Its year encompassed three standard years.
a collection of star systems settled by human colonists, the Ferro Systems were reclusive and isolationist in their stance. Although they elected to join the galactic community of the Old Republic, they were not always compliant with its laws.
this was the name given to the near-human colonists who settled the Ferro Systems. They were a proud people, but quite reclusive and independent. These tall, strong-looking near-humans were known for their milky-white to icy blue skin, their unusual eye coloration, and the fact that they rarely traveled far from their homeworlds. Most known Ferroans inhabited the planet Zonama Sekot, although it was generally believed that the Ferroans were brought to Zonama Sekot, not native to it. This group of Ferroans was employed by the original Magister as caretakers of the planet, using their natural instinct to remain separated from the rest of the galaxy to ensure Zonama Sekot was well-hidden from casual observers. Generations later, during the Yuuzhan Vong invasion of the galaxy, the Shaper Nen Yim came to believe that the Yuuzhan Vong might have evolved into something like the Ferroans, had they not destroyed their homeworld of Yuuzhan'tar generations earlier. With the discovery that Zonama itself was the offspring of Yuuzhan'tar, the link between the living planet and the Yuuzhan Vong became obvious. After the Yuuzhan Vong surrendered to the Galactic Alliance at Coruscant some five years after their invasion began, it was decided that the remaining Yuuzhan Vong would live on Zonama Sekot. The Ferroans were surprisingly open to this decision, especially in light of the number of times the Yuuzhan Vong had tried to destroy Zonama Sekot. A few members of the younger generation of Ferroans thought the idea was improper, and chose to leave Zonama Sekot and travel to other worlds.

Later, Bobb who answered the call of Tobbi Dala and Fenn Shysa to rebuild the Mandalorian Protectors. However, Bobb was a ruthless hunter whose ideals didn't mesh with the Mandalorian traditions, and he eventually left Mandalore to work on his own. During the Galactic Civil War, Bobb was employed by the Empire in an effort to recover an I2-CG droid from Goratak III. The droid had intercepted information on the Alliance's starship manufacturing plant on Tar Morden, and was eventually recovered by Alliance forces. Bobb, however, was shot and killed during the mission, when a stray blaster bolt from a rebel weapon ended his life.
primary planet in the Fest System, the inhabitants were nearly always at war with themselves or their neighbors on Mantooine. They disliked Emperor Palpatine even more, and were beginning to rebel when the Empire attacked Mantooine. Their distrust for each other, coupled with a lack of communications facilities, kept the inhabitants of Fest from warning the Mantooinians about the attack. The geography of Fest is dominated by steep mountain ranges and deep valleys. Fest was the site of an Imperial weapons research facility during the Galactic Civil War, located atop one of the planet's tallest mountains.

originally from the planet Kamino, Boba Fett was the son of noted bounty hunter Jango Fett. When Jango was first contacted about developing a clone army, one of the only things he requested as payment was an unadulterated clone to have as a son. Boba was the first of the clones produced by the Kaminoans, some ten years before the onset of the Clone Wars, and Jango loved him with all his being. He trained Boba to be self-reliant, and often took the child on bounty-hunting missions. This self-reliance was put to the test when Jango was killed during the Battle of Geonosis. Young Boba Fett fled the planet in his father's ship, Slave I, and spent several years trying to avenge Jango's death at Geonosis. At the age of twelve, he had managed to establish himself as one of the galaxy's best bounty hunters, and had even performed several jobs for Jabba the Hutt. Boba nearly had his chance to kill Mace Windu, after infiltrating the Jedi Temple on Coruscant, but was unable to complete his mission. His presence on Coruscant earned him the recognition of Supreme Chancellor Palpatine, however, who took the young hunter into his confidence. Fett was even recommended to Inquisitor Malorum, during the hunt for Feros Olin on Bellassa. Little was known of what happened to him over the next twenty years. It was rumored that he returned to his father's homeworld of Concord Dawn, where he was known as the Journeyman Protector Jaster Mereel. There were also rumors that Fett was an extremely dedicated Imperial stormtrooper who, for reasons known only to him, attacked and killed his superior officer. These rumors have never been substantiated, and many were eventually proven false, but Fett did nothing to rectify them because they added to his mystique and hid his true past. In his travels, Boba Fett acquired a full suit of Mandalorian Shock Trooper armor to replace the suit worn by his father years before. The unique weapons systems of the armor suited a number of purposes, including enhancement of his arsenal as well as increasing the mystique behind his reputation. He also acquired his father's Kuat Systems Engineering Firespray-class ship, Slave I and had it heavily modified at Kuat Drive Yards. Many of the modifications to Slave I were developed by Kuat of Kuat himself, and helped further the design of other starships. Fett employed the best microsurgeons in the galaxy to remove as many of the pain-sensing nerves from his body. He also had many of his body's pleasure sensors eliminated as well. As his proficiency as a bounty hunter grew, so did his reputation. It was even believed that Grand Moff Willhuf Tarkin employed Boba Fett to hunt down Han Solo, shortly after Solo's defection, in order to prove to the galaxy that the Empire would not tolerate any breech of loyalty. This led to his being hired by Kud'ar Mub'at, in an intricate plan to eliminate the Bounty Hunters Guild. The plan, masterminded by Prince Xizor, involved Fett actually joining the Guild, which he had felt was too restrictive in its bylaws. The plan worked, resulting in the breaking of the Guild into two rival factions. During this time, Fett also discovered the schemes of Kuat of Kuat, and would have exposed the leader of Kuat Drive Yards if Kuat hadn't been intent on his own suicide. Fett later became one of the bounty hunters commissioned by Darth Vader to hunt down the Millennium Falcon. This occurred at about the same time as Jabba The Hutt hired him to capture Solo. These two commissions fit together perfectly for Boba Fett, who used his knowledge of Han Solo's background to predict Han's maneuver of floating away with the Avenger's garbage, and tracked the Falcon to Bespin and Cloud City. Boba Fett then took possession of Han's frozen body and returned to Tatooine, only to be intercepted over the desert world by IG-88. In a brief firefight, Boba Fett was able to destroy IG-88's ship, but Slave I was so damaged that landing on Tatooine would be impossible. So, Fett travelled to the Outer Rim world of Zhar, and landed on Gall. There, he was further beset by bounty hunters, including Zuckuss and 4-LOM, who wanted to steal Solo's body. Fett managed to escape them as well, only to be assaulted by Alliance starfighters from Rogue Squadron. Fett escaped them as well and transported Solo to Jabba the Hutt, collecting the large bounty on Han's head to go with his Imperial payment. It was at time that Fett discovered Ree Duptom's personal starship adrift and Duptom himself dead. He took possession of the droid in Duptom's hold and the young woman in his holding cell. The droid contained data on Kuat of Kuat's plot to discredit Prince Xizor, and the woman turned out to be Neelah. Jabba then offered him a large sum of money to remain on Tatooine as his personal bounty hunter. This allowed him to hide Neelah from the rest of the galaxy, but Fett stipulated that he would remain a freelance bounty hunter on retainer. Although the work was extremely simple for Fett, he believed that there would be a rescue attempt made on Solo, and he wanted to be there when it happened. After slightly underestimating Leia's disguise as Boussh, Boba Fett's instincts went into overdrive, and he was ready when Luke Skywalker showed up at Jabba's palace. Unfortunately for Boba Fett, when Luke, Han, and Chewie were about to be thrown into the Sarlacc pit, Fett's rocket backpack was accidentally activated by the then-blind Han Solo. Fett careened into the side of Jabba's sail barge and was knocked unconscious. Fett was thought to have been killed in the Sarlacc's acid-filled belly, but he managed to set of a series of explosions which destroyed much of the beast and allowed him to escape. Note that Marvel Comics' Star Wars issue 81 showed Boba Fett being "rescued" by the Jawas from the Sarlacc pit, only to fall back in when the Jawas' sandcrawler fell into it. He lay dying in the twin suns of Tatooine until he was discovered by Dengar and Manaroo, who recognized him by the tattered armor that still clung to his skinless body. Dengar also found Neelah,and took them both to his hideout in the desert. There, with the help of some of Jabba's medical droids, Dengar nursed Fett back to health. Once recovered, Boba Fett set out to clear up the situation with Kuat of Kuat and Neelah. They managed to put all the pieces together, with the help of Balancesheet and Kuat himself, before Kuat killed himself. After recovering the heavily-damaged Slave I from the Alliance, he limped to Nar Shaddaa and commandeered a second ship for his use. He designated this ship Slave II, and was again commissioned by the Hutts, this time to kill Solo once and for all. He almost succeeded at Nar Shaddaa, but was again thwarted. When Han Solo and Princess Leia returned to Nar Shaddaa to take Vima-Da-Boda into custody, Boba Fett again nearly captured Solo, but Chewbacca overpowered him, ripping off his helmet and igniting his rocket-pack. Fett careened into the ceiling of the spaceport's lowest levels and was knocked unconscious. It was believed that he sustained near-fatal head injuries, but Fett returned to action shortly afterward, this time with the newly-repaired Slave I. His spent much of his career tracking down the two most elusive targets, Han Solo and Rivo Xarran. Fett caught Rivo on Ladarra, but let him live after discovering that Rivo was caring for a group of children. He later caught Solo on Jubilar,and the two decided that they had been adversaries too long to kill each other, and they went their separate ways. Fett returned many times to Kamino, where Taun We had been secretly growing replacement body parts for the bounty hunter. She asked him to hunt down and destroy Fenn Shysa, as it had been Shysa who participated in the devastation of Kamino near the end of the Clone Wars. Many years passed after this final hunt, and Fett returned to Mandalore to assume control of the Mandalorian Protectors. When the Yuuzhan Vong began their invasion of the galaxy, Fett and his Mandalorians worked to protect the planet Mandalore before setting out to do as much damage as they could. From a base on Caluula Station, they worked to thwart any incursion of the Yuuzhan Vong into the Tion Hegemony. When Han Solo and his wife Leia arrived at the station with rescued prisoners from Selvaris, Fett removed his armor and introduced himself as Hurn. The Solos couldn't place the face, which was just fine with Fett. When the Yuuzhan Vong launched their final assault on Caluula Station, Fett and his soldiers worked tirelessly to ensure that the Solos escaped the station and returned to Calamari with the prisoners. As he cleared an escape lane for the Millennium Falcon, Fett called Solo to explain that he was always angry with the Jedi Knights, and that Solo was just valuable cargo. As Solo commed back that Fett was just a nuisance, they once again went their separate ways.

this man was perhaps the most wanted criminal in the galaxy during the years leading up to the Great Sith War. He was known to have killed an officer of the Old Republic during the Battle of Jaga's Cluster, before he fled into deep space. Although he was presumed dead, many beings claimed that he was biding his time before returning to the forefront.
this man was a noted bounty hunter during the last decades of the Old Republic. As a child, Jango was orphaned on Concord Dawn when his family, farmers by trade, were murdered in a civil war among the factions of the Mandalorian Mercs. Vizsla captured Jango and forced his parents to tell what they knew of Jaster Mereel, but the Fetts refused. Jango fled as Vizsla and his cronies executed his family. Jango himself was saved by Jaster Mereel and later trained by the Mandalorians, debts which he carried for the rest of his life. Jango became one of the noted Mandalorian Shocktroopers, and it was believed that he was the only survivor of that military group. He patrolled the galaxy in the Firespray-class starship Slave I, a ship which was heavily-customized to his exactly standards. Jango lived his life by a code, made up from simple ideals that came from a lifetime of bounty hunting. Around the time of the Battle of Naboo, Jango was contacted by Darth Tyranus on one of the moons of Bogden, to serve as the model for a new clone army being developed for the Republic. Jango had been singled out from all the beings in the galaxy by the Jedi Master Sifo-Dyas. The job paid well, especially in light of the fact that Jango only had to provide genetic material and training for the clones. His only real payment, besides room and board on the planet Kamino, was a single, unadultered clone. Jango took the child and raised it as his own son, whom he named Boba. In between taking jobs as a bounty hunter, Jango taught his son to be self-sufficient and wary of everything. He trained Boba on starships and weapons, encouraging the boy to read and learn about the galaxy around him. Jango Fett often worked along, but was known to have partnered with Zam Wesell during the years following the Battle of Naboo. Shortly before the onset of the Clone Wars, it was Jango Fett who was employed by the Trade Federation to assassinate Senator Padme' Amidala of Naboo. He chose to work with Zam Wesell on the job, knowing that the Clawdite's ability to change shape would come in handy on Coruscant. When the attempt failed, Jango had to kill Zam in order to maintain his secrecy. He returned to the planet Kamino, until its location was discovered by Obi-Wan Kenobi. Jango, realizing that Obi-Wan was not the Jedi accomplice of Darth Tyranus, fled Kamino to the planet Geonosis. There, he became embroiled in the Battle of Geonosis, the first true skirmish of the Clone Wars. Despite the fact that his cloned army performed well, Jango himself was unable to match the intensity of the Jedi Knights. In combat with Mace Windu, Jango was killed when he was decapitated by Windu's lightsaber. Stories of Jango's death reached far and wide, well beyond the battle arena of Geonosis. To lose one's head in a battle with a Jedi became known as "getting Jango'ed". Many clone troopers told and retold the story of his death, until it became widely accepted that it had taken twelve Jedi to bring him down.

native to the jungles of Haruun Kal, this vicious insect was a parasite that laid its eggs in any living being it could attack and bite. The larvae of the fever wasp feed on blood and flesh, although it was discovered that they also like to consume thyssel bark. Because of this trait, those Korunnai who chewed the bark as a stimulant and were bitten by fever wasps died very quickly. When the larvae of the fever wasp reached the brain of their host, they continue to grow until they hatched, feeding on the brain cells and eventually killing the host. When a mass of larvae reached maturity, they burst from the skull of their host as if emerging from a huge eggshell. If caught very soon after the initial bite, the larvae of the fever wasp could be killed with an injection of thanatizine. If not destroyed immediately, the only way to destroy the larvae was to kill the host and burn their body. The larvae of the fever wasp matured in about four days, making treatment virtually impossible if delayed.
this huge tree was native to the rainforests of the planet Veron. These trees covered more than three-quarters of Veron's surface, but were not able to survive on the rocky mountains or coastal shores.

this Selkath was a noted author and historian of his people's plight, during the Imperial occupation of the planet Manaan. He was also a member of the Order of Shasa, which gave him first-hand knowledge of the rebellion against their Imperial oppressors. His book, The Battle of Ahto: A Memoir, chronicled the swift attacks led by the Order of Shasa, and of how the Selkath acted under the direction of a masked stranger. Fewash's words told of his spprehension and fear of the bloodlust that consumed the Selkath, and revealed that the stranger was none other than Darth Vader himself.
a chemical weapon, Fex-M3 is a potent nerve gas that causes death when inhaled.
a later variation on the original Fex-M3 nerve gas, Fex-M3d was designed to bind to neuro-receptors as it passed through the bloodstream after being inhaled. This binding effect prevents the nerves from sending information to the brain. In small doses, it can cause involuntary muscles to become lax, making the heartbeat irregular and breathing difficult. In larger doses, the body's autonomous nervous system shuts down completely, stopping the lungs from breathing.

this portly man was a Corellian, and he owned and operated Feyodor's Tavern in Omman's Capital City. He was generally regarded as an excellent chef, although no one knew if he had been formally trained.
this small tavern was located in Capital City, on Omman, and was owned by the man named Feyodor. One of its most famous attractions was the cascading waterfall of lights which graced the wall behind the bar. The artwork also served a more devious role, as each light indicated the presence of a certain smuggler, bounty hunter, or pirate. If the light was on, the individual was in the area and looking for work. Other lights in the waterfall indicated that certain clients had a job to offer. Color-coding represented need, status, and occupations required. Blue indicated a veteran, while red was a warning that the individual was a risk. Green meant the being was available, and white indicated that the being was pratically a living legend. Yellow meant a deal was in progress, but could be broken as the contract hadn't been signed.

this shrubby plant was native to the Forest Moon of Endor, where it was sought out by the Ewoks, who used its roots for a number of uses. However, acquiring enough fgir root to create the paste was a dangerous proposition, as the roots were hollow and quite sensitive to pressure. When squeezed or compressed, the roots of the fgir ejected a number of poisonous, needle-like spines into the air. It was this characteristic that earned the fgir bush the nickname "shooter roots". However, the Ewoks learned that the root itself could be cut and dried to form a dart blower, while the moisture found in the roots could be distilled into an effective anesthetic. Despite its ability to heal Ewok injuries, fgir root proved ineffectual on Aqualish, Mon Calamari, Quarren, and Priapulin individuals.

this clone commando - officially known as RC-8015 - was one of the many commandos who survived the Battle of Geonosis. The remainder of his squad was killed in the fighting on Geonosis, and Fi was force-fit into a new squad, known as Omega Squad. Fi was known for his infallible sense of dry humor, and he never ceased to find something funny about his situation. Often, this lightheartedness eased the nerves of his fellow clones, but it soon became grating to many. During the mission to rescue Senator Meena Tills from Korunnai terrorists, Fi nearly shot his former teacher, Kal Skirata. Skirata had been protecting a hostage who had been forced to change clothes with one of the terrorists, and Fi was simply acting on instinct and reconnaissance. Although he managed to hold back, Fi felt that he had betrayed his former instructor by sighting him with his weapon. Skirata told Fi that he had simply been following the training that had been drilled into him, and that sentimentality would get him killed.

this alien race, native to the planet Galantos, called the Koornacht Cluster "The Multitude." They were a small, placid race whose communication included wild hand and arm gestures. After the Yuuzhan Vong captured Coruscant, the Fia began negotiating with the alien invaders, hoping to survive the invasion. They provided information on the strengths of the Yevetha, in return for resources and the Yuuzhan Vong's assurance that the Yevetha would be destroyed. The Fia also allowed the communications network to the Republic to be shut down, mainly to avoid reprials from the Republic itself. Little did the Fia know that the Yuuzhan Vong had no plans to spare either the Yevetha or the Fia. Only the timely intervention of Leia Organa Solo and her husband, Han Solo, on a mission to restore communications with Galantos, helped the Fia avoid the fate of the Yevetha.
