this Republic Cruiser was one of many consular ships that were refitted for military use during the Clone Wars. About a year after the Battle of Geonosis, the Whipsaw was under the command of General Fyefee Tiis during the defense of the planet Cartao. The Whipsaw managed to disable the droid control ship which had been placed in orbit around the planet, temporarily disarming the battle droids on the ground. Unfortunately for the clone troopers on the ground, the Separatists had a mobile droid control unit ready to deploy in Foulahn City, which brought the battle droids back online almost immediately.

this was a form of weapon used by the Shaper caste of the Yuuzhan Vong. Like most other Shaper implements, the whipsting was a modified lifeform which was grown to serve this one purpose. It was essentially a long cord which was coiled inside a sac in the Shaper's hand. When poked or nudged in the right place, the living cord would eject its mass outward at a target. The end of the cord was tipped with a poisonous spine, which could pierce fleshand deliver a deadly injection. When jerked free, the whipsting recoiled into its sac to replenish its poison supply for its next use.

Corran Horn's codename for his R2-D2 astromech droid. Whistler had a near-human personality, and made itself understood by modifying its language of sounds to mimic human mannerisms. This trait kept Whistler on Corran's nerves, but it also kept Corran out of trouble. Not your average astromech, Whistler was programmed by the Corellian Security Force for a number of aptitudes, including creativity, surveillance, lock-picking and forceful entry, and a certain amount of deductive reasoning. Corran also added escape and evasion subroutines. After Corran married Mirax Terrik, Whistler told her that he wanted to pilot the Pulsar Skate when Corran retired from the New Republic. When Rogue Squadron was rescued and held captive by Colonel Vessery and Ysanne Isard, all their astromechs were fitted with restraining bolts. The bold had no effect on Whistler, because the droid had a specialized piece of code installed. Whenever a restraining bolt was attached to it, Whistler's programming detected it and blocked it immediately, rendering the bolt useless. However, the same piece of code intercepted the commands of a caller or owner, and Whistler could simulate the effects of the restraining bolt. This allowed Whistler to reactivate itself after being impounded by the Imperials, and he also removed the bolt from Gate. The two used ventilation ducts and much of Whistler's knowledge of Corran and Mirax's businesses to escape the Imperial facility and return to the Errant Venture, where they told of Rogue Squadron's survival and the existence of Ysanne Isard.
this Ortolan merchant was so pre-occupied with food that he fell in love with the idea of owning and operation a restaurant. He was the being who designed and built the Whistler's Whirlpool cafe on the planet Trogan, wanting to have a nature theme to his restaurant.
this was the name of an encryption module produced by Carbanti for use in disguising a starship's communication signals.
this tapcafe was located in the Drinking Cup on Trogan, near the city of Kergara. The Whistler's Whirlpool was designed and built by an Ortolan who was known as Whistler. Once a major tourist attraction during the last decades of the Old Republic, the Whistler's Whirlpool eventually fell on hard times. The circular structure was centered on the Drinking Cup, allowing the tidal geyser to erupt through the center of the cafe. Unfortunately for Whistler's profit margin, the cafe's design and location made the cafe a cold, damp place to try and enjoy a meal. The sound of the geyser's rushing water drowned out the loudest of conversation. Additionally, the tapcafe's charm soon wore off on the local population on Trogan, and they eventually stopped coming. These two things, coupled with the speciallized construction of the facility, made it impossible to maintain, and the Whistler's Whirlpool was eventually abandoned.

White Current, The
this was generally considered to be the Fallanassi version of the Force, although the Fallanassi generally did not acknowledge the existence of the Force itself. It involved a different set of abilities to detect and manipulate the natural world, and preached the immersion of an individual into the Current, rather than calling upon its energy for action. Unlike other believers in the Force, the Fallanassi chose to hide their acceptance of the White Current and its powers, and many members dedicated themselves to ensuring that no record of their existence remained. One of the talents of those Fallanassi who maintained a deep connection to the White Current was their ability to create complex illusions, not the least of which was a lifelife doppleganger of themselves to fool others.

this modified YZ-900 transport was originally outfitted as a smuggling ship, making runs into and out of Hutt space during the height of the New Order. The original owners removed the concussion missile launchers to provide additional power to the laser cannons, and many of its onboard systems were altered to allow the use of a substantial droid crew. The ship could be piloted by a single being, although two additional gunners were needed to handle the weapons. The ship was abandoned shortly before the Battle of Endor, and was later auctioned off to pay for its excessive docking fees.

this was the name given by Halls Saper to the 3PO head she used as a holo-recorder in her teachings. She wore Whitecap on her shouder, giving her the impression of having two heads. She felt that the droid's presence would be less obtrusive to the children she interviewed. The idea was sound, but the implementation still left some children uneasy in the presence of a two-headed woman. Eventually, with the help of Wedge Antilles and his pilots, Hallis reduced Whitecap's components into an ornate hairpiece which allowed the same abilities to record but was much less unusual.
this was a form of personal starfighter produced during the last decades of the Old Republic. It was a heavily-modified version of the Kuat Systems Engineering Cloakshape fighter, measuring fifteen meters in length and having a cockpit which had been expanded to accommodate a second passenger.

this library administration droid served one of Tipoca City's branches, during the years leading up to the Clone Wars. Whrr was a friend of young Boba Fett, encouraging the youth to read the books his father, Jango Fett, recommended, as well as providing books that might have been of interest to the young boy. When Boba fled Kamino with his father, he inadvertently left behind a holobook created by Jango. This book was to be opened only in the event of Jango's death. Whrr took the book from Boba, believing it to be a library book the boy had returned. When he discovered that the book wasn't a real book, Whrr kept the book safe until Boba returned to Kamino to recover it. This occurred shortly after the Battle of Geonosis, where Jango Fett was killed in battle against Mace Windu. Whrr then claimed that the book was overdue, but overdue to be returned to Boba Fett himself, not the library. Whrr then gave Boba 250 credits to pay for the late fees, as a gesture to help the young orphan make his way in the galaxy after Jango's death.
a long, think, segmented worm found on Dathomir, the whuffa (sometimes spelled wuffa) was hunted and killed for the leather produced from its hide. The rest of the worm was also used for food, and none was wasted. They live on the minerals in the crust of the planet, and have two distinct sexes. Their hydrostatic skeletons allowed them to move about below the ground, and their heads were dominated by a wide mouth. This mouth was filled with heavy teeth, and surrounded by a pair of curving tusks. Shortly before the rise of the Empire, it was disovered that the whuffa had actually been bred by the Kwa, to serve as guardians of their Star Chambers and the Infinite Gates.

The son of Deej and Shodu, Wicket was an inquisitive and somewhat rebellious Ewok, and was often banished from participating in the rituals and ceremonies of his home village. He was the Ewok who befriended Cindel Towani when her family's shuttle crashed on Endor. He helped Cindel and Mace rescue their parents from the Gorax, and also helped liberate a group of Ewoks held captive by the Marauders. Later, it was Wicket who found Leia Organa on Endor's forest moon, after her speederbike crashed during a chase with several Imperial scout troopers. Wicket was instrumental in convincing Chief Chirpa and the shaman Logray to accept her presence among the Ewoks, and he later helped the Alliance gain access to the Empire's shield generator. In the wake of the Battle of Endor, Wicket built his own home within the burned-out bunker of the Imperial garrison, and eventually married his longtime friend Kneesaa. The pair returned to Bright Tree Village, and were elected to lead the village. Wicket himself was named tribal chief, succeeding Chirpa as a leader.

It was under the command of Arien Yage during the early stages of the Yuuzhan Vong invasion of the galaxy, during which time Captain Yage remained loyal to Grand Admiral Gilad Pellaeon. After the Battle of Borosk, Captain Yage volunteered her crew and the Widowmaker to escort Luke Skywalker's mission into the Unknown Regions to locate the mysterious planet of Zonama Sekot. Grand Admiral Pellaeon agreed to the proposal, and the Widowmaker accompanied the Jedi into the Unknown Regions. After locating Zonama Sekot in the Klasse Ephemora System, the Widowmaker remained in orbit to protect against any further attacks. After Nom Anor managed to infiltrate the planet and set off an incubator to destroy it, the Widowmaker tried to engage the Red Qurang and stop it from escaping. Before the ship could be caught, Zonama Sekot made the first of many blind jumps into hyperspace to stop the damage caused by Nom Anor. The Widowmaker was drawn into the planet's wake, but was unable to follow the planet. It was lost for many months, and there was no way to track where it had come out of hyperspace. With the Yuuzhan Vong surrender at Coruscant several months later, Sekot decided to return to the Unknown Regions with the Yuuzhan Vogn survivors. Tahiri Veila decided to remain with the planet, and promised Master Skywalker that she would continue the search for the Widowmaker.

Many felt that her position within the monarchy distanced her from the majority of the people. However, in the wake of admissions about Deca Brun's abuses of campaign funds, and after Prince Beju withdrew from the election and threw his support to Prammi's campaign, she was elected to succeed Veda. Prammi even received the support of Elan and the Hill People, although they chose to remain apart from the majority of Galu natives.

Wild Force Shard
this was the term used by the Jedi Order of the Old Republic to describe any artifact - usually a crystal - which had been imbued with the power of the Force. The shard actually resonated with the Force, sending out ripples of energy that affected the world around it. Because the shard simply existed in the Force, it lacked any affinity to the Light Side or the Dark Side. Instead, it simply altered the effects of the Force in its vicinity. Although any Force-sensitive individual could hold the shard and use it to augment their own powers, such use was frowned upon by the Jedi Order because the shard could amplify either side of the Force, potentially turning a good Jedi down a path of evil.
Talon Karrde's smuggling ship, the Wild Karrde at first glance appeared to be a dilapidated Corellian Action VI Transport. It measured the standard 125 meters in length, and was nondescript in coloration, but it was really a highly-modified smuggling ship. It was equipped with combat-rated shields and three turbolasers, a sophisticated sensor package, and a stealth travel system. A Class 1 hyperdrive gave the ship long distance capability, and its sublight drive system could move the ship at speeds of 950 kilometers per hour in atmosphere. It had room for Karrde's crew as well as a kennel for his vornskrs. Shortly before the Yuuzhan Vong invaded the galaxy, Karrde installed a sensor shroud system in order to cloak the ship during missions into occupied territories.

this group of Force-sensitive Barabels remained separated from the Jedi Knights during the early decades of the New Republic. Their isolation was self-imposed, and based on a fear of the xenophobia of Emperor Palaptine. For a short time, they were trained by the Jedi Knight Eelysa, who was on Barab I on an intelligence-gathering mission. However, when the Yuuzhan Vong invaded the galaxy and threatened all forms of life, the Wild Knights decided that it was time to end their self-imposed exile and help the Jedi. Saba Sebatyne made the first move, sending three students to join Luke Skywalker at Eclipse. They flew a collection of well-maintained but battle-scarred Y-Wings, but were also well-skilled in the control of an X-Wing. In the wake of the Second Battle of Coruscant, the ranks of the Wild Knights were augmented by Danni Quee, whose expertise on the gravitic technology of the Yuuzhan Vong was invaluable in battle.
this modified YT-1930 freighter was owned and operated by Zan Ransom.
