Heat Induction Staff
produced by Salasetti Survival Systems, this device was based on a Rodian weapon design. It provided a user with a way to heat up solid matter to generate heat. An array of low-intensity lasers emitted a beam of energy that did little damage to the structure of its target, except to heat up its internal temperature. In this way, rocks and metals could be safely heated up to provide several hours' worth of warmth.
this unusual device produced a focused beam of light that instantly heated up whatever it was aimed at. Although designed for use in manufacturing and as a piece of survival gear, a heatbeam could also be used as a weapon.

this was the familiar name given to a series of Z-95 Headhunters that were modified by the Alliance during the early stages of the Galactic Civil War. These fighters were equipped with cross-body strakes that provided better heat dissipation as well as allowing the chassis to support a heavier load. Thus, the name Heavy-95 was coined. The development of the Heavy-95 allowed the Alliance's meager naval forces to keep pace with the Empire's growig starfleet, before the availability of the X-Wing. The cross-body strakes were later adapted for use on the X-Wing to assist with heat dissipation and to provide additional support for the chassis.

She grew up admiring the Old Republic's various alien species, and devoted her education to understanding them more. With the advent of the Empire, Soron and her father were conscripted into duty. She became a member of the Imperial Species Identification Bureau, but was constantly thwarted in her attempts to bring other species into the New Order. After discovering the Ssither on Jatee, she faked her own death and returned to Jatee, where she continually subverted Imperial probes on the planetoid. Doctor Hegerty was later recruited by Imperial Moff Crowal, who provided Hegerty with the resources she needed to fully investigate the alien races of the Unknown Regions. Hegerty reluctantly agreed to rejoin the Empire, and found herself with a wealth of sponsorships. Doctor Hegerty was later assigned to Luke Skywalker's mission to locate the mysterious planet Zonama Sekot, in the wake of the Battle of Borosk, as part of Crowal's goodwill toward the fledgling Galactic Alliance. She had enough experience in the research and investigation of primitive cultures that she hoped to be of assistance in investigating the trail of myths and legends surrounding the rogue planet's movements through the Unknown Regions. Their mission led them to the Klasse Ephemora System, where Sekot had hidden the planet in orbit around Mobus. Doctor Hegerty was fascinated by Ferroan culture, until Sekot arranged for a series of tests to bring the true nature of their mission to light. However, both Luke Skywalker and Jacen Solo were able to convince Sekot that they were searching for a peaceful end to the war, and the planet agreed to follow them back to the galaxy.

Unknown to the rest of the family, though, Brigta had been trained on Coruscant as one of Emperor Palpatine' Dark Side Adepts by Sate Pestage himself. When Lucian Hejaran passed away, Brigta traveled back to Nightsinger's Orb to hear his will. Unfortunately, Brigta was left completely out of the will. She then tried to attach herself to the remote member of the Hejaran family who actually inherited Lucian's position as Baron, hoping to gain power and wealth any way she could. However, Lucian's will explicitly stated that Brigta was to be exiled from the Hejaran Castle and Nightsinger's Orb for her affiliations with Emperor Palpatine and the New Order.

After Brigta was caught trying to murder Themion Hejaran, it was discovered that she used her Dark Side powers to murder Lucian as well.
the younger brother of Baron Lucian Hejaran, Themion was an avid hunter who took on game and political enemies with the same vicious intensity. He immersed himself in the politics of Tapani Sector and the New Order, and saw his chance to rise in power when Lucian died, shortly before the Battle of Endor. He resented the fact that Brigta Hejaran and a distant member of the family were gathered to Hejaran Castle to hear Lucian's will, and tried to eliminate the "competition" during a traditional nightsinger hunt. Unfortunately, Themion simply earned the wrath of his relatives by trying to kill a nightsinger by himself, and nearly killed old Galemus Hejaran in the attempt. Later, Themion was enraged when Lucian only left him fifteen percent of the family's holdings while bequeathing the family position to the stranger. After Pershon's death, Themion questioned about his activitied and quickly challenged the new heir to the Hejaran throne to a duel. However, after Brigta was caught trying to murder Themion, he withdrew the challenge.

Although Hekula lacked his father's cunning, he made up for it in sheer brutishness. He also won through cheating, and much of this was because of Sebulba's influence. It was Sebulba who came up with the idea of feeding course information to the podracers while the race was occurring, to make the race more challenging and exciting. It also allowed Sebulba to feed course information to Hekula just prior to sending it to every other racer.
this unusual creature, native to the moist world of Enaleh, resembled a flying snake or eel. They were filter feeders, but traveled through the air to catch their prey instead of the water. Given Enaleh's damp atmosphere, the helas were amphibious. The offspring evolved in the water, but the adults preferred to fly through the air. Their heads were essentially large baskets, with four jaw-like flaps which opened up to collect small insects. Four long tentacles grew from the corners of their mouths, and presumably helped them detect their prey. Helas lacked wings, and seemed to have an internal organ which acted in much the same was as a repulsorlift engine did. Scientists have been studying the helas species to determine the exact nature of their flying ability, but have been unable to pinpoint it.

The Jedi discovered that Helina Dow was actually a spy, planted by the Separatists many years earlier. Helina tried to trap the Jedi behind several holographic false-doors, then managed to steal the codebreaker before heading to her ship. The Jedi reached the hangar at the same time, and confronted her about her duplicity. She explained that she had been hired by Passel Argente to infiltrate Fry Industries, and that she had been ordered to turn over anything important to the Separatists. After Helina indicated that she had the codebreaker, Argente dispatched the former bounty hunter Magus to recover the codebreaker. In the hangar, Magus shot and killed Helina as he tried to make off with the codebreaker.

Arakyd's light freighter/starfighter, the Helix was the first of the so-called Interceptor-class of light freighters. It was a 30.9-meter craft that was triangular in shape, resembling a bird of prey. It can carry up to 35 metric tons of cargo, giving it frieghter capabilities, but it is also heavily armed. A pair of plasburst laser cannons is supported by a pair of ion cannons and a proton torpoedo launcher, providing starfighter abilities. The Helix requires a pilot and co-pilot, and can carry up to four pasengers. It is fairly well-shielded, and has a strong hull. The base model was equipped with an Incom GBp-625 hyperdrive, while a "B" version was given the faster GBp-629 hyperdrive. There was believed to have been a large amount of discussion over the Helix's classification as a civilian freighter, given its speed and weaponry. The Bureau of Ship Services (BoSS) later realized that the armament on the base model of Helix was illegally armed, based on current Imperiallaw, and all production of the Helix was ordered to a halt.

The Five captured starships within the Hellhoop and took great pleasure torturing the crews and passengers. The sadistic desires of the Five became their destruction when they captured Han Solo, Leia Organa, and Chewbacca some years after the Battle of Hoth. Chewbacca was imprisoned in the Menagerie, while Han and Leia were tortured. Chewbacca escaped, and liberated Wuzzek and the other Menagerie beasts.
