AirPatrol II
this was a series of airspeeder produced by Bespin Motors during the New Order. The AirPatrol II was designed for use by security forces, and was armed with a twin blaster cannon. In addition to the pilot, the AirPatrol II could transport up to two passengers. These craft measured eight meters in length, and had a flight ceiling of 250 kilometers. (FBS)

this was one of the largest furniture dealers found on the planet Coruscant, during the years leading up to the Clone Wars. Airromco provided "intimidating" office furniture for virtually every budget, and their motto was "Office furniture on a grand scale." (HNN4)

any repulsorlift vehicle that flies in the upper atmosphere of a planet, they cannot enter the vacuum of space. They are meant to be utility craft, but can be modified for battle. (ESB, DFR)

Airspeeders for Bodyguards and Security Specialists
this was an Old Republic training course, created to give civilians and non-combat military personnel a basic overview of airspeeder handling. The course was held on Coruscant. (SWI65)

this device was developed by the various companies that plied the atmosphere of the planet Bespin. Airspinners were small devices that were dropped from trawlers and gas collectors to monitor the movement of the atmosphere, to anticipate storms and evacuate an area before their vessels were damaged. (DN1)

this gas-bag vermin was native to the Life Zone of the planet Bespin. Each of these sac-shaped creatures moved about with the help of two stubby wings, and their mouths were filled with up to eighteen tentacle-like tongues. Each tongue was coated with an organic adhesive, which an airsquid used to latch onto a beldon or other large beast. Usually, an airsquid will simply hitch a ride on a beldon, using one of more of its tongues to catch airborne algae. However, swarms of airsquid have been known to gang up on, and devour, larger prey. (GORW)

this technique for landing a starship was considered a last resort, to be used when the only other option was to crash. It was used primarily in those situations when repulsorlift engines failed, elminating a pilot's ability to lower a ship to the ground using anti-gravity. Airstilting involved turning a ship upright with respect to the ground, so that its main sublight drives were pointing downward. With careful modulation, the sublight drives could be used to drop the ship to drop close to the ground, but not all the way. The thrust generated by the drives prevented this. In order to land, the sublight drives had to be cut off just above the ground, dropping the ship onto its rear with a jarring thud. Then, with luck, the ship would topple over in such a way that it ended up on its landing struts, again with a jarring thud. Quite often, the ship's tail fins and landing struts were badly damaged as a result, but the primary systems were kept intact. (DFR)

this large man dreamed of being a starfighter pilot as a youth. However, his stocky build made him too large to fit in the cockpit, so he settled on becoming a law enforcement officer. He joined the Cloud City Wing Guard shortly before the Battle of Hoth, and was a supporter of the Alliance when Darth Vader garrisoned Cloud City. (JKG)

Airtight Base
this was the codename of Clabburn the Younger's primary base during the height of the New Order. It was located inside one of the many asteroids found in the Hoth Belt, and was named for the fact that it was virtually impossible to breach. Clabburn kept a pair of space slugs near the entrance to the base, hidden in caves but ready to attack any vessel that attempted to get in. (WOA34)

this was the generic term used to describe any repolsuor-driven cargo vehicle used on the planet Coruscant during the last decades of the Old Republic. (SWRPG)

see 8F (SWJ10)

this protein drink was consumed by spacers to keep their bodies healthy during long runs. It was usually served hot. (TNR)

this was a species of flying cetacean native to the planet Naboo, and also found on the world of Kamino. The aiwha was similar in appearance to a thranta. They used a combination of sonar and radar for their communication, and were equally at home swimming in the ocean or flying through the air. A hollow bone structure and large lungs helped the aiwha remain aloft or afloat, and their flat tail was used as a rudder and paddle. Their small legs were not made for walking, and the aiwha preferred to land in the water rather than on land. A vast network of small, almost vascular vessels permeated the flesh of the aiwha, allowing it to adjust its relative mass by pumping water into the vessels to increase mass. When a decrease in mass was needed, the aiwha could expel excess water through a blowhole on their heads. Additionally, the porous tissues of the aiwha's wings allowed for even more precise control of an individual's mass, since water could be absorbed into the tissues when necessary. The aiwhas of Kamino were omnivorous, filtering krill and plankton from the water with their baleen. Many aiwhas were trained by the Gungan and Kaminoan peoples to accept a saddle and harness, and were used as airborne transports. Aiwhas fed on the small fish which inhabited the surface of the ocean, eating primarily daggerts. While it was generally acknowledged that the Naboo aiwhas were indigenous, many xenobiologists believed that the Kaminoan aiwhas were probably transplanted to Kamino and maintained as genetically-bred clones. (WSW, VD2, SWDB, GORW)

Aiwha Squad
this group of clone troopers was under the command of Jedi Master Tra'avis, during the height of the Clone Wars. They were on a mission to Garqi when the command to execute Order 66 was given, and the clones cut down General Tra'avis before he could react. (CWA4)

this was a common name among members of the Ugnaught race. (UANT)

Aj Koenes
this Talz rangeland manager agreed to assist the New Republic team which tried to restore Duro's natural environment during the height of the Yuuzhan Vong invasion of the galaxy. He was continually at odds with Sidris Kolb, the meteorologist of the group, since their projects often required similar resources. (BP)

this was the designation of Biotech's top-of-the-line cyborg construct. It allowed a lifeform to become a cybernetic computer interface liaison. Lando Calrissian's assistant, Lobot, was one of the most obivous users of the AjJ^6. The Aj^6 was promoted by Biotech as "Artificial Intelligence Worth Shaving Your Head For," since the skulls of many Aj^6 constructs were shaven in order to implant the wrap-around computer interface. Note that Crisis on Cloud City claims that Lobot's implant was manufactured by Bioniip Laboratories. (RPG, CSA, CCC, HG)

see Aj^6 (HG)

this was the Biotech model of cyborg construct used by Lobot on Cloud City. Note that this contradicts the West End Games material on this device, which denotes it as Aj^6. (CCG5)

this was a popular name among the Amanin people, named for a famous individual in Amanin history. (UANT)

this Imperial stormtrooper was stationed at the garrison in Hullis, on the planet Halmad, during the early years of the New Republic. (IF)

this was one of the many Bothan clans. Membership in the clan was denoted by the suffix 'jeg added to an individual's family name. (GCG, WOTC)

A'jidre Skrigatov
this rotund Devaronian male served as the Provincial Governor of the planet Abregado-rae during the height of the Galactic Civil War. Skrigatov was little more than a petty gangster, so he used his goons to arrange an engagement to Brinaloy N'Vaari, the last surviving member of her family. Despite his strong sense of honor, it was later discovered that Skrigatov arranged for the assassination of the former Provincial Governor, who was actually Brinaloy's grandfather. In order to gain popular - and political - support, Skrigatov planned to marry Brinaloy and tied up the loose ends. However, she used her skills as an actress and went into hiding, cutting off Skrigatov's only hopes of winning support. (ND)

this was Arakyd Aerodynes' personal jet pack, developed to be lightweight and virtually soundless. It could transport a total mass of 300 kilograms across a horizontal distance of about 500 meters before requiring recharging. A single charge could also lift the maximum mass nearly 200 meters in the air. (GFT)

this Jedi training droid witnessed the fight between Obi-Wan Kenobi and Bruck Chun, shortly before Qui-Gon Jinn arrived on Coruscant to find a Padawan apprentice. The blame for the fight was pinned on Obi-Wan by Bruck, in hopes that he would get Obi-Wan shipped off to the Agricultural Corps while Bruck was chosen as a Padawan. In the end, AJTD-6 described the actual cause of the fight to the Jedi Masters, and neither boy was chosen. (RF)

AJTD-series Droid
this highly-specialized kind of droid was developed for use by the Jedi Knights. These Advanced Jedi Training Droids could be used in all kinds of classes, but were primarily used for lightsaber training. (RF)

Ajunta Pall
this ancient Sith Lord was buried in the Valley of the Dark Lords on Korriban, many centuries before the Great Sith War. Pall's spirit was known to be restless, and wandered the tomb in search of his sword. The sword had not been placed on his sarcophagus, and Pall was doomed to wander the tomb until he could find it. It was said that the Sith who located the sword - from among a group of three - and presented it to Pall's spirit would receive the sword as payment from Pall for freeing his spirit. This prophecy was ultimately fulfilled by the Jedi Revan, who had returned from the Dark Side of the Force during the hunt for Darth Malak. While on Korriban, Revan saved Ajunta Pall by locating the sword, setting his spirit free. (KOTOR, KOTOR2)

this Hutt ran a series of gladiator-style fights in the Upper City of Taris, some 4,000 years before the Battle of Yavin. (KOTOR)

this bird of prey was native to the planet Bothawui. (GCG, WOTC)

this was one of the many family names used by the Bothan people. It referred to a bird of prey found on the planet Bothawui. (GCG, WOTC)

Ak Duranc
this was the false identity which had been created for Aarno Dering by Fligh, in preparation for his assistance in fixing some of the events at the Galactic Games, some six years after the Battle of Naboo. This false ID was discovered by Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker, after Dering was struck and killed by a speeder truck. (JQ3)

this was the ID tag of the data taken from the Gnisnal's recovered datacore. It was deciphered by Ayddar Nylykerka. (BTS)

an Alliance Nebulon-B frigate that attempted to disable the Interdictor-class Harpax in the Ottega System. It was destroyed in the battle. (TIE)

this dry, barren planet is the fourth planet in the Elrood System. It supports only microbial life, although a colony of artists maintains a small outpost there. Akana was orbited by a single moon. (PG3)

born Akanah Norand Goss, Akanah was the daughter of Joreb Goss and Isela Talsava Norand. Akanah was a descendant of the Fallanassi through her mother, Isela, who sent her to live on Carratos when the Empire first sought to take over Lucazec. Akanah lived there as a normal individual, although she was the only Fallanassi on the planet. There, she met and married Andras Pell. Pell was 36 years her senior, and the marriage lasted a year until Andras passed away. Some time later, she sensed the presence of Luke Skywalker, although she did it through the command of the White Current, rather than the Force. She traveled to Coruscant and found Luke, even though he'd hidden himself away in Darth Vader's old residence. She came to him with an offer to help him find his mother and thereby ease some of his emotional burden. She took Luke to her homeworld of Lucazec, but they failed to find any information on Luke's mother. They did find a Fallanassi marking indicating where they fled to, and left Lucazec only after battling with Imperial agents left behind to intercept the Fallanassi. They continued to follow a path known only to Akanah, traveling to Teyr and Atzerri before arriving on J't'p'tan. Akanah was very secretive about their search, which worried Luke about her motives. Ultimately, Akanah revealed that she knew nothing about Luke's mother, and simply wanted to ascertain his role in the galaxy. Although she agreed to help the New Republic defeat the Yevetha, Akanah refused to join the rest of galactic society. Instead, she disappeared to a retreat on Pydyr, where she and the Fallanassi settled to renew their contemplation of the White Current. In the wake of the Yuuzhan Vong invasion of the galaxy, Akanah took on a new student in Jacen Solo, who had been traveling the galaxy in search of the true definition of the Force. (BTS, SOL, TT, DN1)

Akanah Norand Goss
this was Akanah's birthname. (SOL)

Akanah Norand Pell
this was Akanah's married name, following her marriage to Andras Pell. They lived in the city of Chofin, on the planet Carratos, for a year before Andras died of old age. It was at this point that she left Carratos to find Luke Skywalker and located the Fallanassi. (SOL)

this sparkling moon was the only satellite of the planet Akana. It was known as the "diamond in Akana's sky," a reference to its shimmering appearance. Akanala's brilliance was due to its composition, which was mainly quartz. (PG3)

one of the medical officers serving aboard the FarStar shortly after the Battle of Endor, Akanseh had fled Calamari to avoid being enslaved, but was later imprisoned on Kal'Shebbol by Moff Kentor Sarne. Akanseh was liberated by Page's Commandos during the New Republic assault on Kal'Shebbol. Akanseh never revealed why he had been imprisoned, simply claiming that Sarne hadn't needed a charge to imprison him. In reality, Sarne was wanted Akanseh to develop a droid-maintained medical suite on Kal'Shebbol, to augment his experiments with the DarkStryder technology. Akanseh joined the crew of the FarStar when the call went out for volunteers to go after Sarne. Unknown to most of his shipmates, Akanseh was a former interrogation expert with a great deal of experience in torturing individuals. When the FarStar and its crew escaped from the Q'Maere Research Facility, Doctor Akanseh opted to remain on Q'Maere and help rehabilitate the prisoners there. (DARK, KO, KR)

Akarias, Piret
this Alliance pilot was the owner of the YT-1300 transport ship known as the Meandering Star. It was Piret who was assigned to bring a group of Alliance agents to investigate the loss of contact with the safeworld Stronghold. He escaped the initial attack of the Charon and their warship, the Desolate, fleeing the Charon bioscientists and making his way to his ship. However, the sight of his friends being experimented on by Charon scientists drove him mad, and he was irrational when the Alliance agents discovered him. (OS2)

Akarin Ricaev
this was the name of a distinguished member of the Vratix hive Akarin. (UANT)

Akarin Xercr
this was the name of a distinguished member of the Vratix hive Akarin. (UANT)

Akarren Duufor
this name was attributed to a known Shi'ido individual, but it remained unclear whether or not it was the Shi'ido's given name. (UANT)

this Schenor was rescued from an Imperial attack on a research station. He was questioned by Luke Skywalker, who hoped to use his story to sway the Schenor to the side of the Alliance. (RPG)

the Weequay commander of Jabba the Hutt's sail barge. He was discovered by the cook Porcellus, stone dead in the kitchens, just before Luke Skywalker arrived at Jabba's desert palace on Tatooine. Porcellus, fearing that someone would blame him for the Weequay's death, disposed of Ak-Buz's body by tossing it onto one of the many scrap piles outside the palace. In reality, Ak-Buz was killed by Dannik Jerriko. (TJP)

this blue-beaked avian was native to the jungles of Cularin. The akcinor had a distinct call, which was often mimicked by Tarasin as a form of communication during a hunt. (LFCW)

this ancient Quarren surname meant "first among scholars". Like many Quarren surnames, it could be traced back to the time of the Battle of Ruusan. (GCG)

this female Ferroan was one of the many pilots who lived and worked on Zonama Sekot during the height of the Yuuzhan Vong invasion of the galaxy. It was Aken's transport ship that ferried Han Solo and his wife, Leia Organa Solo, as well as several Jedi Knights, to Zonama Sekot's surface, after the planet reappeared near Coruscant. (UF)

this Noghri, a member of clan Kihm'bar, brought the news of the Empire's deception to Rukh, aboard the Chimaera. (TTSB)

this was the Aramandi word for "clan." (SSR)

Akim's Munch
this streetside cafe, located in the city of Mos Espa on Tatooine, flourished during the period in which Jabba the Hutt brought podracing to the planet. Many humanoids considered the food at Akim's to be undercooked and stringy, but aliens like Sebulba hung out there anyway. (IWE1)

this ancient corporation was a division of Corellia StarDrive, and over time specialized in the production of mining equipment. Their headquarters was maintained on Corellia through the era of the New Order. (TOJC, SWJ15)

Akinetic Field
a force field used to bind two structures together in deep space. (ISB)

Akk Dog
this vicious predator was native to the planet Haruun Kal. Despite their fearsome reputation, akk dogs were beloved by the natives. The average specimen stood about two meters tall, and was protected by thick, armor-like skin plates. The coloration of the akk dog was a dusty brown, which allowed it to blend into the grasslands of their native world. Their large eyes gave the akk dogs excellent vision, both during the day and at night. The slayed paws of an akk dog were studded with shovel-size claws, allowing them to gain a foothold on virtually anything. The tail of the akk dog was nearly as long as its body, and was heavily muscled, providing balance as well as a kind of weapon. The eyes of an akk dog were lidless, and were protected by a transparent shell. Domesticated akk dogs were used to round up grassers by ranchers. They could only be bred on their native world, but feral akk dogs were smuggled to Nar Shaddaa for sale on the black market. These beasts were often mentally or genetically altered to serve as vicious guards and protectors, despite the fact that possession of an akk dog was illegal. Akk dogs were also a species which could touch the Force, which made them excellent companions for the Korunnai. In addition to the akk dogs used by the Korunnai, there were two lesser species which hunted in the jungles of Haruun Kal, as well as the akk wolf. (ETM, OWS, HDE, SHPT)

Akk Guards
this was the name used by Kar Vastor to describe the six Korunnai warriors who served as his honor guard. Each member of the Akk Guards controlled two akk dogs, and wielded vibroshields similar to those worn by Vastor himself. The Akk Guards paralleled the Jedi Knights in a number of aspects, an similarity that was attributed to the ancient ancestry of the Korunnai. Upon being accepted into the Akk Guards, a Korunnai warrior constructed his own pair of vibro-shields, just as a Jedi apprentice built their own lightsaber. (SHPT)

Akk Wolf
this huge predator, native to the jungles of Haruun Kal, was an immense species related to the akk dog. (SHPT)

this man worked as a mechanic in the Khoonda Plains settlement of Dantooine, during the years following the Jedi Civil War. (KOTOR2)

this Jawa worked for Jabba the Hutt on Tatooine, collecting protection money from local businesses. (TM)

Akku Seii
this elderly Anzat was a noted teacher in the arts of the assassin, and was once a mentor to Jedi Master Tholme, many years before the Clone Wars. Tholme returned to Anzat to speak with Akku Seii after he learned that Sora Bulq had been making regular trips to Anzat during the Clone Wars. Akku Seii refused to discuss the matter, as it was business between the Anzat and the Weequay. He forced Tholme to fight through a group of assassins to prove himself worthy of obtaining the knowledge. When Tholme defeated his opponents, Akku Seii revealed that the entire battle had simply been a training session for his students. He then told Tholme to leave Anzat, and that he would not help him in the matter. However, the fact that Akku Seii had been teaching several students at one time was an implicit message to Tholme: other teachers had been called away on other duty, ostensibly to train the Separatists in their assassin techniques. (RT)

this city was located on an unnamed world just outside Hutt Space. (WOA35)

this man served the Empire as a Commander of the ground forces working to secure the planet Ralltiir, during the months leading up to the Battle of Yavin. Two years earlier, TK-622 saved the life of Akobi, and Akobi showed his gratitude by ensuring that TK-622 got promoted to new positions whenever he was moved. The pair honed their combat skills together, and developed an innate trust of each other's abilities. While on Ralltiir, Commander Akobi ordered the strike against a supposed rebel cell that led to the massacre of farmers and families at Ettam. When he found out that the attack had destroyed a medical facility, and not a weapons deopt, Akobi began to question his own abilities and the tenets of the Empire. Shortly afterward, TK-622 was again forced to put his life on the line when a hidden thermal detonator - planted by rebels - went off near them. Shortly afterward, Akobi was transferred to a posting on the first Death Star, and TK-622 went with him. Upon arrival, TK-622 discovered a sabotaged RA-7 protocol droid, again saving Akobi's life. Onboard the Death Star, Akobi was to receive a commendation from Grand Moff Tarkin himself, to honor the work he did on Ralltiir. Before the ceremony, another Alliance-rigged droid attacked Akobi, sending thousands of volts of stunning energy through his body before TK-622 couuld destroy it. The attack eventually claimed Akobi's life, and spurred TK-622 to dig deeper into the possibility of an Alliance saboteur on the Death Star. (SWESL)

this religion was an extremely powerful entity based on the planet Gascon. The High Advisor to the King and Queen was a member of the Akol, and he held a great deal of influence over the King. (GMS)

this species of tree grew in the jungles of Thyferra. (BW)

this was one of the more common names given to Cragmoloid individuals. (UANT)

this vicious reptile was native to the planet Trammis III, and was feared because its scales were resistant to blaster fire. The average Akorec stood nearly ten meters tall at the shoulder, and its long head was filled with huge teeth. (GMR5)

Akorec Strike Cruiser
this was a form of attack cruiser which was popular in the Centrality during the height of the New Order. Designed and manufactured by Scillal Designs as the 891c, this ship measured 250 meters in length, and was crewed by 220 officers and gunners. It was armed with twelve laser cannons and a tractor beam projector, and could carry up to 4,000 metric tons of cargo and up to 700 passengers or troops. (GMR5)

this Alliance specification describes the necessary parameters for refitting a starship's transponder. (CFG)

this Weequay served as Jabba the Hutt's drum master, as well as being one of the crimelord's best hand-to-hand fighters, during the height of the Galactic Civil War. A native of the city of Al-Campur, Ak-Rev worshipped Am-Shak, the Weequay god of thunder. He caught the eye of one of Am-Shak's monks when he was young, and the monk taught him about hand-to-hand combat and boxing, as well as music. After leaving the monastery, Ak-Rev made a living as a street fighter, and always paid his tithes to Am-Shak. Jabba once saw Ak-Rev - who adopted the name of one of his slavemasters - playing drums at a religious ceremony, and offered him a job on Tatooine. Note that Star Wars Insider, issue 67, indicates that Ak-Rev was given the chance to serve as Jabba's bodyguard only after getting into a fight with several of Jabba's Gamorrean guards. Ak-Rev accepted, and played the huge drum in Jabba's Tatooine palace with Umpass-Stay. He also trained many of Jabba's guards. Although he survived the swath of destruction that followed Jabba's death, Ak-Rev was killed just days later when Tusken Raiders attacked the landspeeder he and Umpass-stay had used to travel to Mos Eisley. (MTSE, CCG9, SWI67)

this planet, located in the Calaron Sector, was the site of a maximum security Imperial prison, during the early years of the New Order. (HSR, CSA, REB)

Aks Moe
this Gran was a native of the planet Malastare, and rose to become one of the planet's primary political forces. As the Ambassador of the Congress of Malastare, Aks Moe was eventually elected as his planet's Senator to the Old Republic, and proved to be a skillful politician. However, like many of the Senators of his day, Moe was nothing more than a politician, and worked strictly by the laws and protocols put in place by the Republic. It was Senator Moe who agreed to host the peace treaty negotations between the Lannik and the Red Iaro, and it was Moe who also promised that the Red Iaro would have the cooperation of the Malastare government during the negotiations. In addition to his ties to the Red Iaro terrorists, Aks Moe cultivated a relationship with the priest of the Ffib. To hide his role, Aks Moe went so far as to have the Jedi Knights who were serving as mediators assassinated, although the plan eventually failed. As the Old Republic rotted from within, Senators like Moe continued to demand that every item be put to a vote, and the Senate became bogged down in its own inefficiency. When Queen Amidala traveled to Coruscant to protest the Trade Federation's invasion of her homeworld of Naboo, Aks Moe was the first Senator to demand a commission be dispatched to Naboo to investigate the situation. In the decade following the Battle of Naboo, Aks Moe was one of the loudest supporters of the Military Creation Act. Unforutnately, Senator Moe was killed in an explosion while on the planet Aargau, shortly before the onset of the Clone Wars. The explosion was blamed on the Separatists, who discovered that Senator Moe was on Aargau to negotiate funding of the Republic's army with the Intergalactic Banking Clan. Aks Moe was acted by Mark Coulier and voiced by Marc Silk in Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace. (SW1, TPM, IS1, ETM, HNN4, HNN5)

Akul Witig
this Quarren served the Alliance as a Lieutenant within the security corps which protected the Calamari shipyards during the early stages of the Galactic Civil war. Later, after earning the respect of his Mon Calamari superiors, Akul Witig worked undercover with Ma'w'shiye on Karideph, as a member of Eclipse Team. Witig was known as an aquatic wilderness fighter within Eclipse Team. (SWJ4, AIR)

Akuria Two
this ice world was the site of an Imperial base during the height of the Galactic Civil War. The planet was also the homeworld of the Snow Demon race, which the Empire hunted like beasts without realizing that they were sentient. The landscape of the planet was broken by intensely-roiling geysers that shot warm water into the atmosphere. (PZZ2, MCI4, OWS)

this aquatic race is indigenous to the planet Lazerian IV, and descended from a species of savage sea creatures tens of thousands of years ago. The Akwin are mammalians, with blue-green fur and six limbs. The upper set of limbs resemble human arms, and end in three-fingered hands. The second set of limbs also resembles arms, but they originate from the midsection and end in flippers. The lower set of limbs are normal legs that end in webbed feet. Akwins also have thick tails which end with a flat fluke, which they use to propel themselves through the water. The long, flat head of the Akwin is covered with cilia, which can be nearly any color from white to blue to black. They breathe via a combination of gills and two blowholes at the tops of their heads. The Akwin raise their food on underwater ranches, and live peacefully in huge cities on the ocean floor. They have developed a sophisticated, water-resistant technology which is rarely shared with off-worlders or the native humans. The humans of Lazerian IV believe the Akwin are some sort of legend, a belief fostered by the Akwin to keep the humans from discovering them. The Akwin are aloof and condescending to races which breathe air. While the human population has little information on the Akwin - they believe them to be legends, after all - the Akwin have a great understanding of human history and culture. (TSK, AE)

Al T. Nadder
this talented Devaronian mechanic owned a repair shop in the resort city of Le Yer, on the planet Abregado-Rae, during the height of the Galactic Civil War. (ND)

Al T. Nadder's Repair Shop
this repair shop, located in the resort city of Le Yer, on the planet Abregado-Rae, was owned by the Devaronian Al T. Nadder during the height of the Galactic Civil War. (ND)

this was one of the most common names given to female Corellians. (GMR9)

this was one of the many hives that made up the Colony. Like all other hives within the Colony, the members of the Alaala hive referred to themselves, as well as the entire nest, as Alaala, and acted upon the Will of the Alaala hive. The Alaala established their nest on the moon Zvbo. (DN1)

Alabak's Gold
a modified Calamari jump freighter used in the rescue of Adar Tallon from Tatooine. It was similar in shape, though somewhat smaller, than the YT-1300 freighter. (TM)

a city on the planet Esseles. (CRO)

Alabar Double Ax
this Sikurdian pirate was known for his berserk style of ambush, and was feared throughout the galaxy for many years during the early years of the New Order. He blazed a trail of death and destruction from his homeworld of Sikurd to the Red Nebula, until he was eventually hunted down and captured by Valance the Hunter. Valance took his ship and renamed it the Kill Switch. (SWMW)

Alabard's Comets
this was one of the only Alliance military units based in Tapani Sector during the height of the Galactic Civil War. Based on a barren moon of the Sheva System, the Comets served to maintain a listening post and provide intelligence on Imperial activities in the sector. (LOE)

this young planet was located on the far edge of Fakir Sector from the Core. It was once considered too volcanic to successfully mine, until the Empire realized that the planet was a prime source of alantium. The Empire tried to establish a mining colony on the planet, but the Alliance was able to send in a strike team and disrupt the colony's construction. (SWCP)

Alagar, Frenil
this man was a member of the Alliance's High Command, and was one of the primary observers stationed in Elrood Sector when the Empire subjugated Elrood. He urged the Alliance to keep Elrood in mind as a potential ally, despite its distance from the galactic core and its obvious Imperial control. (PG3)

this man served as a Private in the Alderaanian guard, during the height of the New Order. He was also a valued member of the Alliance, having a number of contacts on Outer Rim worlds and being a skilled unit procurement officer. Private Alain was among the guards who were slain by Imperial stormtroopers when Darth Vader and the Devastator overtook the Tantive IV over Tatooine, during their search for the plans to the first Death Star. (JKG)

native to the planet Von-Alai, the Alain were known for their ability to survive in the harsh, cold environment of their homeworld. However, as the Alain became more technologically advanced, they found that the pollution and toxic waste of their factories was destroying the planet. Rather than adapt their factories to produce less waste, the Alain decided to adapt to the changing climate instead. As a result, Von-Alai's environment quickly became over-polluted. The Alain continued to adapt, building their residential buildings on platforms to escape the toxic sludge that had replaced the snow-covered plains. (LOJ)

this New Republic warship was one of many that were commandeered by Senators who were trying to flee the Yuuzhan Vong conquest of Coruscant.

this woman and her twin sister, Eritha, requested the help of the Jedi Knights six years after the population of New Apsolon elected a planetary leader. The sisters were the daughter of the former leader Ewane, who was killed shortly after he left office. They supposedly went into hiding, and begged the Jedi Knights to return to New Apsolon and find Ewane's killer. When Qui-Gon Jinn arrived in search of Tahl, he learned that the twins had willingly joined Roan's household, and had not sent for the Jedi. Alani herself told Qui-Gon that they had seen Tahl, and that the sisters felt like they were a part of Roan's family. This was all a cover, though, in an effort to protect Tahl, who had infiltrated the Absolutes. The twins were captured shortly after Qui-Gon and Obi-Wan Kenobi arrived on the planet. Alani and Eritha were released after Roan was killed, but Eritha soon found out that Alani had been working for Balog all along. She discovered that Alani had been behind their kidnapping, which had been meant to sway public sympathy against the Jedi. After the death of Legislator Pleni, Alani suddenly announced her intentions of running for the position of planetary governor, in opposition to the plans of Manex. She also revealed to Obi-Wan that Eritha had secretly been working for her all along, and that Eritha's support of the Workers was a sham. Alani believed that, with Eritha at her side, she would be voted into the Governor's position. However, after their admissions and the capture of Balog, both Eritha and Alani were arrested and imprisoned, and their bid for power was extinguished. (TTB, DOH, CTV)

Alaras, Cinto
a native of Rya, this man was a designer and medical consultant, employed by Neuro-Saav during the early years of the Galactic Civil War. Assigned to the facilities on Tauber, Doctor Alaras earned a reputation as a contributor rather than an inventor, and was suspected by many of his colleagues of plotting to steal their designs. He was educated at the Carosi XII Academy of Medicine shortly after the Battle of Yavin, and the position at Neuro-Saav was the first - and only - job offer he received. (AIR)

this aging Sephi was the King of the planet Thustra during the years leading up to the Clone Wars. He was favored among his subjects, who willingly followed whatever plans he had for Thustra. His charisma and influence extended well beyond Thustra, as many planetary rulers in neighboring systems looked to him for wisdom and guidance. Thus, when Alaric chose to secede from the Old Republic, Chancellor Palpatine and the Galactic Senate were worried that his defection would lead to the secession of many other planets in the area. A small contingent of clone troopers, under the command of Jedi Masters Tyffix and Tyr, was dispatched to Thustra to make a show of force. Their mission was to avoid engaging the Sephi, but Alaric was adamant about leaving the Republic. In response to the Republic landing forces on Thustra, Alaric made contact with Count Dooku about joining the Confederacy of Independent Systems. His people were equally opposed to the Republic, and launched wave after wave of devastating attacks on the Republic's forces, often at the cost of their own lives. When Jedi Master Yoda - an friend of Alaric's for more than 200 years - arrived on Thustra, the King found himself torn between his friendship and his own loyalties. In the end, Alaric decided to choose what was best for his people, and pushed ahead with his secession. He imprisoned Yoda as a Republic General, but remained on speaking terms with the Jedi Master. They spoke at length of the state of the galaxy, and Alaric explained that he was willing to wait out the Clone Wars as a neutral party. He would wait to see who would emerge victorious, with the goal of having Thustra remain intact. When he realized that the Republic's forces would eventually overwhelm the Sephi, Alaric chose to attack Yoda. He would either defeat the Jedi Master and instill more bravery in his people, or he would die as a martyr and incite the Sephi to more desparate acts of fanaticism. Alaric's first blaster bolt was deflected by Yoda, but its trajectory brought it right back to Alaric. The blaster pierced his chest, and Alaric died shortly afterward. His death served its intended purpose, and even the neighboring systems rallied to help the Sephi repel the forces of the Republic. (J5)
