this young man served as the Imperial Moff of the planet Bastion, shortly after Admiral Pellaeon signed a peace accord with the New Republic. Unlike his older counterparts, Saretti had never been in the presence of Emperor Palpatine, and held no ties to the old Empire. Saretti grew up on Coruscant during the Galactic Civil War, and his family fled to Bastion when Coruscant fell during the early years of the New Republic. He was, nevertheless, much wiser than the older Moffs, and advocated the support of the New Republic during the Yuuzhan Vong invasion of the galaxy. Saretti was also one of Admiral Pellaeon's strongest supporters, and offered to accompany Pellaeon during his discussion with Leia Organa Solo in regards to joining the fight against the Yuuzhan Vong. Pellaeon, however, requested that Saretti remain on Bastion to help the other Moffs understand the situation. Later, after the Imperial Remnant joined the New Republic in combatting the Yuuzhan Vong, Saretti opened up the Imperial archives to the Astrographic Survey Institute, in an effort to provide them data on the Outbound Flight Project. The hope was that the data would provide information on the origins of the Yuuzhan Vong. While this took some time, Saretti continued to support Pellaeon's efforts. After the fall of Bastion and the successful defense of Borosk, it was Saretti who spoke loudest to the Moff Council, demanding that they band together and join the Galactic Alliance, lest the individual Moffs retreat into their own systems and become easy targets for the Yuuzhan Vong.

this clone commando, officially designated RC-1013, was one of several heroes of the Old Republic's early victories during the Clone Wars.
this hardy grain was grown on the planet Dagro. For many years, it was a staple in the diets of many worlds in the vicinity of Dagro, but the market suddenly dropped during the height of the Clone Wars. Many of the farmers on Dagro found themselves with acres and acres of a crop that couldn't quite keep up with the cost to grow it, and turned many of them against the Old Republic. The most usable part of the sargheet plant was the upper stalk, but the lower part - known as crop stubble - could be stripped of its blue bristles and used as feed for livestock. The bristles, which were easy to remove but impossible to digest, had to be removed because they built up in the digestive tract and caused blockages that could lead to death. However, when simmered in water, the bristles released flavors that created a tasty soup stock.
Sargonian Behemoth Tick
this immense, blood-sucking insect was known for its tenacious hold on its host.
this female Gran and her sister, Moree, were noted smugglers who worked from a base on the planet Malastare during the years leading up to the Battle of Naboo.
this Imperial Major was known for his skills and success in quelling rebellious activity. He was placed in command of the Demnadi Relief Operation, and was the sole member of the team dispatched to the planet.

one of the Dark Jedi working with Jerec, Sariss was physically and mentally stronger than her companions. She was of near-human stock, and was known to be quiet and reserved. Note that the Wizards of the Coast website indicates that Sariss was human. Sariss was raised by the Prophets of the Dark Side, and might have been sired by one of their members. Regardless of her lineage, Sariss grew up in a world that was consumed by the Dark Side of the Force, and was tortured and raped by the Prophets for many years until she was sent of missions for the Church of the Dark Side. She was known by the codename Prophetess, and worked for Tour Aryon on Tatooine before being taken in by the Dark Jedi Jerec and trained as one of Emperor Palpatine's Dark Jedi. Under the tutelage of Jerec, Sariss became skilled and dangerous with a lightsaber, and eventually earned enough of his trust to become his second-in-command. In the wake of the Battle of Endor, Sariss abandoned her connections to the Empire and joined Jerec in his quest to reform the Dark Side Elite. It was during this time that she discovered the abilities of the Epicanthrix youth Yun, and insinuated herself into his father's life. Sariss led Yun to believe that she loved him, twisting him to the Dark Side until he killed his father out of love for her. Sariss then seized his father's assets and took them to Jerec, along with Yun. Sariss then committed herself to assisting Jerec in reaching the Valley of the Jedi. After locating the Valley on Ruusan, she was defeated by Kyle Katarn while protecting Jerec. During the fight, she was prevented from killing Katarn outright when Yun blocked her killing blow. Reflexively, Sariss struck out at the lightsaber, killing Yun instantly. This brief moment allowed Katarn to take up Yun's lightsaber and stab her through the heart. Investigation into the actions of Jerec and his band of Dark Jedi later revealed that Sariss had been the daughter of the Dark Lord Cronal, who served Emperor Palpatine as the agent known as Blackhole.

(DFR, CCG9, AE)
this race of humanoid lizards was native to the planet Sarka. They had short, pointed snouts and large eyes, and were often brightly colored. They walked upright, and used their thick tails to balance themselves. Many xenobiologists believed that the Sarkans shared a common ancestry with the Barabels. Their clothing was often adorned with gemstones, and they prefered to travel in groups of three. They had their own version of protocols, and anyone who didn't adhere to them was considered a barbarian. Their standard greeting had its own protocol, and had to include the life history of each individual, the number of battles each had won, the number and value of all gemstones each had mined, and the various mates each had acquired over time. Obviously, these greetings often lasted for hours, and any greeting of less than an hour greatly diminished the giver's worth. Many fine arts experts considered Sarkan ballet to be among the most beautiful in the galaxy.

a fruit spread created on the planet Sarka.
this name, which meant "smiling", was common among Gungan males.
this Force-sensitive Gungan worked as a diving instructor on the moon of Dorumaa, during the era of the Battle of Naboo. He lived on Whitesand Island, and operated his diving school from the coast. He was not a patient being, and often forgot that non-Gungan species took more time to adapt to diving beneath the surface of the ocean. He sometimes used his ability with the Force to leave his customers with the impression that they had a wonderful time, regardless of their experience, and they often tipped generously because of it.
this was the spoken language of the Sarkan race. It consisted of a complex collection of words and subtle body gestures. For written and other communications, most Sarkans use Basic.

this young boy was the sone of Kell and Tyria Sarkin, and was gifted with his mother's connection to the Force. He traveled with his mother during the Yuuzhan Vong invasion of the gaalxy, as she searched for her own true calling. Doran and his family were among the handful of Jedi Knights and their supporters who ultimately survived the conflict with the Yuuzhan Vong.
this blonde-haired woman, a native of the planet Toprawa, was member of the Antarian Rangers and was one of the first pilots to serve in Wraith Squadron. All members of her family were killed when the Empire subjugated Toprawa, after it was discovered that the plans for the first Death Star were transmitted from there, and she survived using her ranger skills until the New Republic rescued here. She had a small sensitivity to the Force, although a short series of training sessions with Luke Skywalker led him to believe she didn't have the depth of ability to become a Jedi Knight. This shattered one of her dreams, because she longed to gain more strength with the Force. However, the New Republic wanted her to train as a pilot, hoping that her sensitivity to the Force would make her a better pilot. By her initial scores, she wasn't cut out to be a pilot. She was approached by her commanding officer, Colonel Repness, who had altered her failing grades to make them passable, then threatened to blackmail her if she didn't assist him in stealing an X-Wing. She refused, and Repness had her thrown out of the training program, citing "gross insubordination." However, her scores were good enough to attract the attention of Wedge Antilles, and she became part of the Wraiths. Her training with the Antarian Rangers allowed her to become the squadron's scout. It was Tyria who came up with the name "Wraith Squadron." She soon fell in love with Kell Tainer, and their relationship continued to grow with Wedge's quiet assent. Her tiny sensitivity to the Force helped the Wraiths during their attempt to infiltrate the Binring Biomedical facility on Saffalore, as she could feel the residual pain and anguish of the creatures that were tested there. Tyria spent some time training with the Jedi praxeum on Yavin 4, before she and Kell were married. Tyria eventually attained the rank of Jedi Knight, and event which continued to elate her as the years went by and the New Republic fell into disrepair. While Kell remained a member of the Wraiths and fought against the Yuuzhan Vong, Tyria began travelling the galaxy with their young son, Doran, teaching him about the Force and expanding his - and her own - horizons. Tyria and her family were among the handful of Jedi Knights and their supporters who ultimately survived the conflict with the Yuuzhan Vong.

this Imperial officer was known as a fearless spy who would work through virtually any assignment. A nehpew of Admiral Piett, Sarkli was once granted a personal audience with Emperor Palpatine, and was on the fast track to promotion. Sometime after the Battle of Yavin, he set out to join the Alliance, and eventually earned a place as a pilot on the newly-commisioned Rogue Squadron, serving under Luke Skywalker and Wedge Antilles. Despite having a large role in saving the group that rescued General Jan Dodonna from Yavin 4, Sarkli received very little in the way of recognition or trust. In an effort to establish himself, he set up an ambush that took the lives of several Rogue Squadron pilot, but returned to the Alliance with the claim that he was the sole survivor. His "heroism" went unrewarded, however, and he decided to "defect" to the Empire, a series of actions that allowed him to return to his true maters. The information he brought back to the Empire was well-received, and it was believed that he was given command of an Escort Carrier for his actions. He was later assigned to the team protecting the shield generator on the Forest Moon of Yavin, in order to ensure that the construction of the second Death Star went as planned. However, Han Solo and his strike team managed to infiltrate the bunker and place a series of explosives. Sarkli apprehended the rebel band as they exited the bunker, but Solo managed to shoot him in the chest. The armor he was wearing buckled under the assault, and he was killed when a bolt pierced the armor and his heart.
this man was the leader of the bounty hunters who tried to capture Quinlan Vos on Ord Mantell, some years after the Battle of Naboo.
this planet was believed to have been the site of an Alliance cell, during the years leading up to the Battle of Hoth. Imperial forces under the command of Captain Korvellen attacked the supposed cell's location, destroying buildings and communities in an effort to eliminate the rebels. Unfortunately for the natives of Sarko VI, there was never an Alliance presence on the planet. Korvellen later justified the slaughter of innocent beings by claiming that the natives were "...poor and without hope, potential rebel scum waiting to turn against the Empire."
a great beast which buries itself in the ground and waits for food to wander nearby. Only the Sarlacc's mouth remains visible, with inward-curving teeth covering its entire surface. A number of long, prehensile tongue-tentacles are connected to the inner mouth, and are used to grab its food and pull it into the lower sections of its body. The Sarlacc's body is apparently divided into two sections. The first is a large chamber where the prey is initially deposited. Branching off from this chamber are many smaller digestive chambers. Once prey has been dragged into the main chamber, the Sarlacc's internal musculature - which is connected to thousands of whip-like tentacles - moves it along the sticky inner walls to a holding place. There, its prey is stuck to the inner walls with various tendrils while the Sarlacc's internal fluids begin to flow around the prey. The allows the Sarlacc, which has no natural digestive system, to physically assimilate its prey. The theory is that the Sarlacc latches onto its prey, pumping its own caustic blood into the prey's system. The blood breaks down the prey slowly, picking up nutrients before passing back into the Sarlacc. The Sarlacc's blood also provided a minimal sustenance for its prey, so they are kept alive inside the beast for a long time. The Sarlacc's prey eventually becomes part of a huge network of consciousnesses created from all of its victims. Thus, it is believed that many of the Sarlacc's victims go mad before they die. Many theories exist on the reproduction of the Sarlacci, but it is known that they Sarlacc can regenerate lost flesh, especially the long tongue-tentacles. One theory is that the full-grown Sarlacc can send out spores, when conditions are right, that are capable of surviving the hard vacuum of space. Those spores that survive long enough to reach solid ground then attempt to bury themselves. Another theory held that there were two distinct sexes, with the female being the larger of the two. The male Sarlacc was actually a parasite, which would grow over time to devour its mate. When an offspring is produced, this theory claimed that a male and female would pair up and emerge as a single, nomadic entity. Most Sarlacc prefer dirt and damp earth; the female spore that landed on Tatooine is one of the few that managed to survive in the desert. Note that Wedge's Gamble indicates that Sarlaccs like the sand. The Tusken Raiders who live on Tatooine have a legend that says the Sarlacc gave birth to itself in the core of the planet, in the days before the win suns had split apart from a single star. The Sarlacc, according to the legend, would continue to eat everything until it was forced to consume itself, thereby perpetuating a cycle of death and rebirth. The bounty hunter Dengar once told a drinking buddy that, after he pulled Boba Fett from the Sarlacc on Tatooine, he found that Fett's DNA had been mingled with that of a number of smugglers and lowlifes who had disappeared while in Jabba's service. It was surmised that they had been fed to the Sarlacc as punishment, and that through the pseudo-digestive process, the Sarlacc's blood had carried them into Fett's body. It is believed that the lifespan of a Sarlacc can measure 20,000 years or more.

this woman was the Queen of the planet Drogheda, during the height of the Galactic Civil War. Queen Sarna did everything she could to thwart her sister, Princess Danu, and her efforts to free the people. Sarna was one of Lando Calrissian's lady-friends, and invited him to Drogheda shortly after the Battle of Endor. She hoped that Lando could help her defeat the rebels who were trying to overthrow her, outwardly fearing that the rebels were being backed by the Empire. In reality, Sarna and Danu were using Calrissian as a way to rid themselves of the insurgents, thereby ensuring their continued rule of Drogheda. However, Danu was actually a rebel at heart, and exiled Sarna to any planet that Calrissian cared to drop her on. Lando, however, struck up a business relationship with Sarna.
this Imperial Moff was in command of Kathol Sector during the height of Emperor Palpatine's New Order. He had been a young Navy officer when Emperor Palpatine took control of the galaxy, and became a loyal Imperial officer and a member of the Imperial Survey Corps. During the advent of the New Order, he claimed to have been the sole survivor of a navigational mishap in Kathol Sector. The accident took the life of the entire crew, and only Sarne survived. It was during this time that Sarne discovered the existence of DarkStryder, and made a deal with the creature to provide it with hyperdrive technology in exchange for its own technology. Upon returning to Coruscant, Sarne was reassigned to a posting as the Captain of the Renegade as part of the 15th Deep Core Reserve Fleet, but eventually made his way back to Kathol Sector with a fleet of ships, including the Renegade. He established a base of power on Kal'Shebbol, and continued to exploit DarkStryder's technology while keeping the bio-engineered creature stranded on Kathol. Sarne most wanted to re-establish the launch gates of the ancient Kathol, which he planned to use in conquering the galaxy. After the Battle of Endor, Sarne was flushed from Kal'Shebbol by New Republic strike teams, and he fled the sector capital and hid in the Marcol Void. He took with him as much firepower as possible, including a sizable portion of his fleet, and hoped to refit the warships before the Republic could get much of a hold on the sector. He began negotiations with the Qektoth Confederation, trading several starships and their crews for certain biochemical weapons technology. After the crew of the FarStar began tracking him down, Sarne maneuvered them into position to be the bait in an elaborate trap to capture the New Republic and further utilize the DarkStryder technology. Unfortunately for Sarne, he underestimated the desires of the native races of Kathol to free the Precursors from the Lifewell and defeat DarkStryder. He tried to protect himself by hiding in DarkStryder's fortress, but was unable to defeat the crew of the FarStar and their companions. He tried to flee Kathol and reach the Bastion, but the Republic forces were tipped off to Sarne's escape and managed to shoot down the shuttle. Sarne was killed in the explosion.

Sarnikken Asteroid Belt
this dangerous belt of planetoids was located in Fakir Sector. Its asteroids contained a wealth of heavy metals, and mining operations struggled for control of them. The Empire tried to take control of the Belt for its own use, but the resident miners proved to be quite tenacious in their holdings. Imperial officers and bureaucrats had the tendency to disappear during trips to the Sarnikken Belt. The attempts by the Empire to take over the Belt only served to push the miners toward an agreement with the Alliance, and the Alliance received a wealth of raw materials from the Belt for the construction of its starships and weapons. The Alliance was often provided the assistance of Reekeene's Roughnecks to protect transports into and out of the Belt.
