Orfa Olfactory Entertainment, Limited
based on the planet Kidron, this small corporation made a variety of devices which provided olfactory entertainment to users. This area of entertainment was relatively untapped, but found increasing acceptance during the height of the New Order.
this Orfite corporation produced a variety of technology for Orfites who traveled away from Kidron, including the Orfite Power Harness.
a race of creatures native to the planet Kidron, the Orfites are friendly enough to those offworlders who obey their laws. This is an unusual request, considering that many of the offworlders on Kidron are criminals and convicts escaping justice. The avergae Orfite has a stocky build, and their faces are dominated by their large noses, which are filled with frilled olfactory lobes. The nose of an Orfite had evolved to pick up every trace of breathable air from the thin atmosphere of Kidron, and the Orfites had four lungs which helped get the meager oxygen supply into their bloodstream faster. Their society revolved around the sense of smell, with each Orfite exuding pheronomes which convey a variety of information. They lived in tribes known as sahhs, but every member of Orfite society was free to move about, and could join another sahh if they didn't agree with the leadership of their current tribe. The Empire considered the Orfites to be uncivilized savages, and left them alone. The basic number system of the Orfites revolved around the number four.
Orfite Power Harness
developed by Orfa Toolco, this device allowed an Orfite to maneuver on normal to high-gravity worlds. On Kidron, the gravity was lower than normal, so an Orfite traveling to another planet would experience incredible pressure under higher-gravity conditions. The power harness was small enough to fit under regular clothing, and provided assistance to the legs, arms, back, and shoulders of the wearer.
Orfite Scent Mask
produced by the Orfa Olfactory Corporation, this specialized breath mask was used primarily by the Orfites as a way to make the air they breathed more pleasant. The main unit resembled a standard breath mask, but a small tube connected the mask to a belt pack that used scented tablets to create a breathable mist. The mist was pumped up through the tube and into the mask, allowing the wearer to breaht a variety of pleasurable or intoxicating scents. During the height of the New Order, these masks found their way into non-Orfite society as recreational devices, and the variety of scent tablets grew wildly.
an asteroid located near the Demophon System, Orflon was the site of an Alliance base during the Galactic Civil War. Frozen and arid, the asteroid was a frigid wilderness that even the Mynocks avoided.
this unusual tree grew in the lower levels of the forests of Kashyyyk, and its roots were considered a ceremonial food by the Wookiees. The roots were served at the Life Day celebration, as a way to help the spirit of a Wookiee make the journey to the Life Tree. What made the orga unusual was the fact that it had established a rudimentary level of sentience, as evidenced by documented attempts to communicate with Wookiees and their ability to coordinate the defense of their groves. The orga roots were exceptionally long and far-reaching, allowing the tree to gain sustenance from a variety of sources. However, the tree itself was rooted to the ground and, therefore, stationary. Because of this, orga trees used their flexible limbs to hurl their acidic seed pods at any creature that threatened them. The roots themselves were guarded near the forest floor by sentient plants.

this mountain Nikto worked as Mika the Hutt's bodyguard and agent on Endregaad, during the early years of the New Order. When the Endregaad Plague swept the planet, Orgamon was left behind by Mika, in case Popara sent a rescue party. He was forced to live in a warehouse in the city of Tel Bollin, until a mob of humans led by Radigan tried to kill him, claiming that it was a non-human who brought the Endregaad Plague to the planet. Ironically, Orgamon had actually contracted the disease. He fled to the Fallen Warrior Cantina, where he secured a room until the trouble had passed. When the freelance agents hired by Popara the Hutt finally located Orgamon, he explained that Mika had left him behind in order to track down the source of the plague and how to fight it. Orgamon agreed to take Popara's agents to the Temple Valley in search of Mika, allowing the Hutt to be "rescued".
Organa Solo, Leia
the daughter of Anakin Skywalker and Padme' Amidala, and the younger twin sister to Luke Skywalker, Leia was separated from her brother at birth in an effort to hide their potential Force-sensitivity from Emperor Palpatine. She was taken in by Bail Organa and his wife, Breha, on the planet Alderaan, where she grew up in the political atmosphere surrounding an Imperial Senator. Leia herself grew proficient in the world of politics, and eventually followed in Bail's footsteps to become a Senator herself. Her adopted mother became Alderaan's Mistress of Education, but died while Leia was still young. Once Leia saw the internal corruption that Emperor Palpatine was fomenting, she quickly turned her idealistic mind to the growing Alliance to Restore the Republic. She became very active in the Alliance, and was chosen to escort the stolen plans to the first Death Star to their final destination. After being captured by Darth Vader and tortured, her homeworld of Alderaan was destroyed by Grand Moff Tarkin. This only hardened her resolve, and crystallized her desire to overthrow the Empire. Following the Battle of Yavin, Leia began to fall in love with Han Solo. The bounty on his life, however, separated them until Leia could gain access to Jabba the Hutt's palace and rescue him, with the help of Luke Skywalker and Lando Calrissian. She then helped the Alliance prepare for the Battle of Endor, and even was a member of Han's ground assault team. Her communication with the Ewoks led to the cooperation of the two forces against the Empire, and helped the Alliance destroy the second Death Star. She then led the team assigned to the Bakura situation, and successfully teamed up with the Imperial forces there to defeat the Ssi-ruuk. During Warlord Zsinj's reign, she appealed to the Hapans for aid in overthrowing Zsinj. They Hapans agreed to help, but only if she were to marry the crown prince, Isolder. This led to the discovery of her love for Han, as well as the Witches of Dathomir. In the end, Isolder shook off his mother's mantle and agreed to help the Alliance without marrying Leia, and he gladly gave her hand to Han Solo. Leia's marriage to Han Solo produced three Force-sensitive children: Jaina and Jacen (twins) and young baby Anakin. She worked hard to keep both Admiral Thrawn and Caridan Ambassador Furgan from kidnapping them by hiding them on Anoth with her childhood friend Winter. Following the birth of Jacen and Jaina, Leia and Luke used their combined powers to destroy the reborn Emperor Palpatine on Byss. After the birth of baby Anakin, Leia assumed the role of Chief of State of the New Republic when Mon Mothma stepped down. However, continued attempts on the lives of her family forced Leia to take a hiatus from leading the Republic at the time when Moff Disra began his power play. This allowed her to assist the New Republic in resolving the situation while allowing her to maintain contact with her family. After she successfully negotiated a peace treaty with Imperial Admiral Pellaeon, Leia resigned her position as Chief of State, but remained a vital part of the government whenever she could. During the Yuuzhan Vong invasion of the galaxy, Leia was one of the strongest voices the New Republic had in identifying the threat and ensuring that there was room for refugees fleeing the warzones. However, the death of Chewbacca at Sernpidal plunged Han into a deep depression, and he grew snappy with his family. Leia tried to understand Han's loss, but was unable to break through. When Han left Coruscant with Roa, Leia became angry with him for trying to keep his destination a secret. When Han returned, only to leave again to locate Roa, Leia refused to have him gallavanting across the galaxy. As Han left, he and Leia had a fight, and they parted on poor terms. Their estrangement deepened in the wake of the Battle of Fondor, when Leia refused to reduce her efforts on behalf of SELCORE to try and patch things up. Han remained at Fondor to help Droma and his family, but would not come back to Coruscant unless Leia agreed to meet with him. Leia was unexpectedly reunited with Han on the planet Duro, as the New Republic tried to bolster the spirits of the refugees by having them help in the reclamation of the planet's surface. Han ws helped Droma with settling refugees into their new homes, while Leia was heading up the committee which was directing the clean-up of Duro. They both realized that their petty arguments were nothing compared to what was happening in the rest of the galaxy, and began working to restore their relationship. However, the Yuuzhan Vong attacked Duro, and Leia was captured by the Warmaster Tsavong Lah. In a desparate struggle, Leia and Randa the Hutt tried to escape. The Hutt ultimately gave his life to help Leia, but she was captured by the Warmaster and nearly killed by Tsavong Lah. Jacen's assault forced the Yuuzhan Vong to flee, and Jaina Solo's timely arrival helped save Leia, who had suffered massive blood loss in the fight. Leia ultimately recovered, but only to learn that her son Anakin had died in the mission to kill the voxyn queen at Myrkr. With Chewbacca's death and Han's angry response to it, Leia struggled mightily to try and keep her family from falling apart. Her task wasn't made easier when Jaina decided to become a living example of Yun-Harla and nearly fell to the Dark Side of the Force, nor when Jacen was captured by Vergere and twisted to the Yuuzhan Vong way of life. As the war ground on and months of fighting turned into years, Leia and Han grew closer together through sheer determination. They participated in many missions for the New Republic and the fledgling Galactic Alliance, the primary mission being the re-establishment of the HoloNet communcations network. After a strange battle at Esfandia, Leia and Han returned to Mon Calamaro only to learn that the Yuuzhan Vong had devised a way to eliminate the HoloNet relay stations using the mabugat kan. With the rediscovery of Zonama Sekot, Leia could only hope that the war might be nearing its end. She had embraced a small portion of her Jedi heritage and often fought with her lightsaber, and although Han seemed to be volunteering for only the most insane of missions, they nonetheless always found their way home. After Zonama Sekot reappeared at Coruscant, Han and Leia traveled from Calamari to Coruscant to be reunited with Luke, Jaina, and Jacen, as well as with Tahiri. Their reunion was short-lived, as Zonama Sekot's return sparked the final battle between the Yuuzhan Vong and the Galactic Alliance. On Coruscant, Leia and Han worked with the priest Harrar to find a way to get inside both the Citadel of Supreme Overlord Shimrra as well as the Well of the World Brain. With Shimrra's death and the destruction of Onimi, the war came to a swift end. Han and Leia returned to Zonama Sekot with the Jedi, to determine what would happen to the living planet. They chose to remain distanced from the growing Galactic Alliance and the Reconstruction Authority, especially when Leia began seeing the Galactic Alliance Senate acting in much the same way that the Galactic Senate of the Old Republic had, shortly before it was destroyed by Emperor Palpatine. She and Han set out to locate new planets on their own, hoping to focus their efforts on relocating dishomed races, rather than finding new worlds to strip of natural resources. Some five years after the Yuuzhan Vong surrender, they were caught up in the conflict between the Colony and the Chiss, and Leia's skills as a negotiator and diplomat proved important in resolving the conflict to everyone's satisfaction. However, this brush with politics only served to harden Leia's resolve to complete her training as a Jedi. She requested that Saba Sebatyne become her Master, and the Barabel gladly agreed to train her.

Organa, Bail Prestor
Bail Organa was a youth when the hierarchy of Alderaan was thrown into a huge debate about the ascendancy. There were a number of royal families that held claims to the throne of Viceroy of Alderaan, and each of the families was eager to get its own candidate named to the position. After a lot of political backstabbing and lobbying, the Old Republic was called in and, with the help of the Jedi Knights, finally decided that the Organa family were the rightful successors to the seat of Viceroy. When Bail assumed the title of Viceroy and First Chairman of Alderaan, he also gained a seat on the Imperial Senate, and was soon engrossed in the new form of politics being played by Senator Palpatine and his supporters. Bail quickly asserted himself as a high-ranking graduate from the Academy, and with his wife's support, he began to work toward restoring the Galactic Senate to its former glory. Note that Star Wars Journal: Queen Amidala and the screenplay of The Phantom Menace state that Bail Organa was the first Senator to second Amidala's motion to remove Chancellor Valorum from office with a vote of no confidence, although the novelization of The Phantom Menace states that it was Edcel Bar Gan. Organa found himself oppose to the corruption that was taking over in the Senate, and fought for years to bring the corruption to an end. During the years leading up to the Clone Wars, he was a member of the Loyalist Committee, and did his best to support the efforts of Chancellor Palpatine. It was a daunting task, but one he gladly accepted. Unfortunately, the Clone Wars broke out with the Battle of Geonosis, and Bail found himself thrust into the midst of a war that could tear the galaxy apart. Even in this time of death, he and his wife Brehu - who was the Queen of Alderaan - tried to have children, but her physiology seemed unsuited to pregnancy when she experienced several miscarriages. Bail never gave up hope, in his wife or the Republic. He became famous for his valor in the Clone Wars, where he fought along side the Jedi Knight Obi-Wan Kenobi and the young pilot Anakin Skywalker. However, it soon became evident that Palpatine was growing in power, and that the Old Republic was rotting from the inside out. Organa was desperate, especially after his speech in opposition to the Security and Enforcement Act was met with jeers and cries of treason from his fellow Senators, and turned to the growing resistance as an outlet for his anger. Along with Mon Mothma, Bail worked to solidify the resistance, working behind the scenes to write the Petition of the Two Thousand. The petition fell upon the deaf ears of Chancellor Palpatine, who revealed himself to be none other than Darth Sidious. Organa tried to make it to the Jedi Temple and ensure the protection of the Jedi Order, but arrived shortly after Skywalker began his killing spree. Organa was forced to flee on his speeder or be cut down, after witnessing the death of Zett Jukassa. After young Skywalker became Darth Vader, Obi-Wan Kenobi consulted Bail about hiding Anakin's children from the Emperor. Bail agreed to take in Anakin's wife and daughter. He raised Anakin's daughter as his own, and thereby introduced Leia to the world of Imperial politics and, also, the Alliance. When the Corellian Treaty was being discussed, it was the words of Bria Tharen that pursuaded Bail to sign it. As Bail's faith in his daughter grew, he began assigning her more and more Alliance-related missions, until that fateful mission when he asked her to pick up the stolen Death Star plans and enlist Obi-Wan Kenobi out of hiding. When Leia was intercepted by Darth Vader and later tortured aboard the Death Star, Bail continued to assist the Alliance up until Grand Moff Tarkin decided to unveil the Death Star's power by destroying the planet Alderaan in an effort to get Leia to talk. Bail was killed in the destruction.

an alien race of intelligent, mobile plants native to the planet Gorsh, the Orgons were sought after by the Genetech Corporation. Genetech wanted to study them for commercial uses, but a usable specimen has yet to be captured. Their central bodies were shaped and formed like shells, and contained the Orgon's brain and vital organs. Trailing from the central shell were six to eight thick tendrils which helped the Orgon move about. While they lack proper eyes, Orgons can sense light around them. They capture their prey by using potent poisons and strong adhesives to trap it, then slowly digest the prey using secreted acids.

The planet was just 2,950 kilometers in diameter, and orbited very close to Goroth Alpha. A day on Oris lasted about 31 hours, although it was discovered that this day was actually growing smaller, giving rise to the theory that Oris was not one of the original planets of the system but was, instead, caught by the gravity of Goroth Alpha.
this gruff Trandoshan worked as a thug and strong arm for Nirama, during the last years of the Old Republic.
this polluted section of the planet Tatooine was the site of Orko the H'uun's base. It was a toxic wasteland created by the dumping of materials which were by-products of Orko's various dealings. The humans there had evolved over the generations into mutated creatures who lived squallid lives among the refuse.
known as Orko the Foultrader, this Hutt was a member of the H'uun class. Orko was a rival of Gorga the Hutt, until Gorga desired Orko's daughter's hand in marriage. Gorga had Boba Fett kill Bar-Kooda, a pirate who had been harassing Orko's shipments. Gorga then served up Bar-Kooda as the main course at a dinner for Orko at his palace on Orkana. Orko was pleased, although no less impressed, with the offering, and allowed Gorga to marry Anachro. The feud between Orko and Gorga continued, at a reduced pace, until Bar-Kooda's brother, Ry-Kooda, heard about his brother's death. The Koodan set out to kill off everyone involved, and nearly succeeded on Skeebo. Boba Fett intervened, taking out the Koodan before he could do any damage.

this noted Imperial spy, native to the planet Quian, was the son of New Republic Admiral Karin Orlan. Benald received his education on Marngar III, at the Thene campus of the Imperial University on the planet. He graduated with honors, but initially took a job as a clerk for Galaxy Tours before becoming an informant for the Empire. He was so dedicated to the New Order that he turned his own father into the Imperial authorities for sympathizing with the Alliance. His father was later executed, after the Empire learned that his mother had defected to the Alliance and was a member of their command structure. Benald himself showed no remorse or compassion for his parents, believing them to be traitors to the Empire even in the wake of the Battle of Endor. For his parts in the deaths of his family and several other Republic agents, Benald was a wanted man.
this woman was a native of the planet Quian, and a supporter of the beliefs of the Old Republic. Shortly after the Battle of Yavin, she defected to the Alliance, leaving her husband and children on Quian. Little did she known that her son, Benald, had become enamored of the New Order and had informed the local Imperial authorities of his parents' sympathies. After she was promoted to Lieutenant within the Alliance's command structure, Imperial forces wiped out her husband and children on Benald's information. Karin later earned the rank of Admiral in the New Republic Navy, but was unaware of Benald's activities until the New Republic Intelligence agency revealed his part in the deaths of several other Republic agents.

this obscure planet was covered with swampland and muddy plains. The surface of the planet was constantly changing, as frequent rainstorms soaked the ground and caused mudslides and floods. Many historians believed that the first stone mites appeared on Orleon. It was here that Jabba The Hut met up with Han Solo, before Solo was captured on Cloud City by Boba Fett. Note that, in the Marvel Comics series, which occurred prior to the release of The Empire Strikes Back, Jabba was an Imzig- or Nimbanel-like humanoid who could move about quite well on two feet. After his ship, the Voidraker, was disabled by stone mites, Jabba had to come aboard the Millennium Falcon in order to survive. Jabba then cleared Solo's debt, and canceled all bounties on his head, in return for his own life. Note that this event was proven apocryphal with the release of Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the Jedi., although it was entirely possible that Jabba reneged on the deal as soon as he was safe.

this cloaked man tried to steal Obi-Wan Kenobi's lightsaber from Bast Castle, Darth Vader's fortress on Vjun, some twenty-two years after the Sith Lord killed the Jedi on the first Death Star. During the early years of the New Republic, Orloc remained hidden on Exis Station, searching for the lost lore of the Jedi and the Sith. He posed as a master of the Dark Side of the Force, but he actually had very little sensitivity to the Force. He always wore a purple robe, into which he had woven control buttons and a variety of gadgets. These gadgets allowed him to control his surroundings, giving him the appearance of using the Force to manipulate objects. When he learned of the possiblity that Kenobi's blade on on Vjun, Orloc made a quick trip to Vjun to verify the rumor. He was amazed to find that the Jedi Master Tionne had also heard the rumors, and had prepared for the possibility that the Jedi might also turn up on Vjun. Tionne arrived shortly after Orloc, along with fellow Jedi Master Ikrit and three students - Anakin Solo, Tahiri Veila, and Uldir Lochett. However, Orloc's lack of real power kept him from being able to obtain the artifact. Hoping to use the young boy Uldir as an unwitting accomplice, Orloc promised the boy more power than he could imagine if he was able to penetrate the fortress and steal the lightsaber. However, Uldir was rescued by Tionne and Ikrit, and the lightsaber was returned to Yavin 4. Also located during the rescue was a Jedi Holocron, which was turned over to Luke Skywalker. Orloc and his mercenaries fled into space, returning to their base of operations on Exis Station. On Exis, Orloc reprogrammed all of the droids to do his bidding, leaving his own time free to develop new ways to pretend to use the Force. Throughout his self-imposed exile, Orloc dreamed of capturing Kenobi's weapon and the Jedi Holocron he had encountered on Vjun. Uldir, hoping to redeem himself and prove that he could use the Force, stole the Kenobi lightsaber from the Jedi praxeum on Yavin 4 and traveled to Exis Station, hoping to gain favor with - and training from - Orloc. However, when he realized that Orloc was offering empty promises, Uldir turned the table on him and helped the Jedi defeat Orloc and recover the lightsaber. With his false contact with the Force revealed, Orloc again fled into the depths of space.

this Rodian soldier was a member of the Bomu clan, and worked for Zonnos the Hutt during the early years of the New Order. Ormann worked with his brother, Heedran, aboard the light freighter Vengeance during his tenure with Zonnos, leading the boarding parties that raided enemy ships. The pair was dispatched by Zonnos to intercept the freelance agents who had been hired by Zonnos' parent, Popara the Hutt, to rescue Mika from Endregaad. Unfortunately, the agents proved to be more resourceful than the Rodians had anticipated. In the firefight that occurred during the boarding operation, Ormann was killed and the remaining Rodians captured and turned over to the Corporate Sector Authority.

Orn Free Taa
this obese, Rutian Twi'lek was a Senator to the Old Republic. He was most noted for the Lethan Twi'lek consorts he maintained, rather than his politics. Taa was as corrupt as a Senator could be, and used his position to indulge in his every whim. He was somewhat unusual for a Twi'lek, as he had four thick head-tails instead of just two. These misshapen head-tails stored fat like the rest of his body. During the years leading up to the Battle of Naboo, Senator Taa was one of Finis Valorum's most vocal rivals, and took every opportunity to needle the Chancellor in public and political forums. It was during this time that Orn Free Taa became one of Senator Palpatine's supporters, although he found himself floundering after Palpatine was voted Supreme Chancellor. In the years leading up to the Clone Wars, Orn Free Taa continued to support Palpatine, and proved himself to be a stickler for the letter of the law. When the Military Creation Act came up for a vote, it was Senator Orn Free Taa who demanded that the vote be delayed, after Senator Padme' Amidala was nearly assassinated. He had hoped to carry the vote through, but Amidala's speeches only served to shake the resolve of those Senators who had not committed to one side or the other. Ultimately, the vote was taken, but only as a courtesy after it was learned that the Separatists had amassed a huge army on Geonosis. In the following months and years, Orn Free Taa voted regularly for legislation that seemed to maintain or improve Chancellor Palpatine's base of power, and was one of the first to recommend that the Jedi Order be augmented with a dedicated police force. After the apparent death of Master Yoda at Ithor - a complicated ruse involving Palleus Chuff - Orn Free Taa took the matter to the Senate, demanding the formation of a security force that would answer solely to Palpatine himself, and dedicated to the protection of the Galactic Senate and the Chancellor. Note that the Episode I Insider's Guide CD doesn't give a species for Orn Free Taa, although it states that his species was distinguished by its large ear flaps, which stored excess fat for later consumption.

this planet was located in the Yarith Sector of the galaxy. Much of the planet was covered by water, and the settlers who lived on Orn Kios built lightweight shelters atop huge lillypads. The planet's econony was based on fishing.
this man worked his entire life on Mechis III, as an assembly line monitor. He was of the opinion that his presence wasn't needed on the planet, since all the systems were heavily automated and self-designing. His superiors, however, required periodic human intervention and inspection of all processes on the line, so Orn was hired for that purpose seventeen years before the Battle of Hoth. Orn was on duty when IG-88 arrived at Mechis III and began reprogramming the security networks. Part of the new programming included the elimination of any organic life on the planet, and four worker droids pulled Orn apart before he could escape.

It was later discovered that Oro had leaked word of the Alliance's interest in Erling Tredway to Parnell, who quickly moved to imprison Erling on Tol Ado. After Erling's rescue, Oro was arrested and placed in prison by the Alliance.
codename of a group of T-Wing starfighters destroyed during the Galactic Civil War.
this Koorivar served as an Acquisitions Specialist and Special Markets Director for the Corporate Alliance during the years leading up to the Battle of Geonosis. He was known for his drive and skills as a leader, and his ability to take over rival corporations earned him the notice of Passel Argente. Argente later inserted Dassyne into the Corporate Alliance's military branch as a General when the Clone Wars broke out, recognizing good leadership skills and a desire to destroy the opposition. His original posting was on Murkhana, but he complained that there was no action at the remote Corporate Alliance stronghold. He was then assigned to protect Bomis Korri IV, from which he could defend a group of neighboring Mid Rim factory worlds. On Bomis Korri IV, he established what he believed to be an impenetrable fortress, then sat back and waited for the forces of the Grand Army of the Republic to flail against it. He had planned to wait the fighting out, then utterly destroy the Republic's forces. However, he was unprepared for the actions of Anakin Skywalker and his Jedi Master, Obi-Wan Kenobi. Anakin discovered an underground accessway to Dassyne's main power generator, which the Jedi used to infiltrate the compound and set off a series of massive explosions. With the shields around the fortress down, the Jedi led a small contingent of clone troopers into the breach, with supporting fire from warships stationed in orbit. Dassyne's forces were caught unprepared, and were quickly vanquished. Dassyne himseld died in the assault.

Oron had established his base of operations in a former Imperial relay station.
son of Modon Kira, and prince of the Beastmasters, Oron was secretly entering the city of Iziz as a kind of spy for many years before Ulic Qel-Droma came to the planet. He once met the Onderonian princess Galia on one of his missions, and they fell in love. Together they arranged a false kidnapping attempt on Galia's life in order to be together. Their plan almost worked flawlessly, except that Ulic - along with his brother Cay and Tott Doneeta - followed them back to the Beastmaster city. There they learned of Oron's love for Galia, and also of the Dark Side influences working on Onderon. Oron and Galia were later married, following Queen Amanoa's death, and the peoples of Onderon were united.

this organization was a front company for the Tenloss Syndicate during the Galactic Civil War. Ororo tried to horn in on Black Sun's spice trade shortly after the Battle of Hoth. Xizor sent Guri to deliver a message to the operation, during which she exterminated three of Ororo's highest-placed officials. To further emphasize his displeasure, Xizor gave Darth Vader the coordinates of an Ororo shipyard in the Vergesso Asteroid Field, telling the Dark Lord that the coordinates represented an Alliance shipyard. The shipyard was destroyed by Vader's fleet. In the wake of the Battle of Endor and the downfall of Black Sun, Ororo was expanded by the Tenloss Syndicate and used to provide transportation services for the Syndicate's many operations. Ororo's headquarters were located on Eredin.
a barely-palateble beverage, orotay found acceptance among the armed forces of the New Republic because it helped them stay alert. Ronks were found to be allergic to it. Following the Battle of Endor, orotay production fell off, and the price began to rise.

this hospital and medical center was located in Orowood Towers, on the planet Coruscant. The staff was made up of doctors and physicians who were either natives of Alderaan or sympathetic to them.
this large building was built on Coruscant to house survivors of the destruction of Alderaan. It was painstakingly built and crafted to resemble as much of Alderaanian architecture as possible. However, many of the survivors decided that living on Coruscant, close to the Imperial Palace and the memories of Emperor Palpatine, was too emotionally difficult. After the reign of terror of Grand Admiral Thrawn, all the remaining Alderaanians abandoned the Tower, and it became a business center. The Tower itself was 38-levels tall; the third level of the Tower held airspeeder parking pads, and the fourth level held five tapcafes.

Orr Agg R'orr
this Tusken Raider was one of the many who lined the Mos Espa podracing course during the fateful Boonta Eve Classic race that was won by Anakin Skywalker, shortly before the Battle of Naboo. He fired several shots at the racers as they wound through the course, one of which was believed to have hit the podracer of Teemto Pagalies. The Pagalies family issued a bounty for his capture, since Teemto's failure to finish cost them a lot of credits. The bounty was claimed by Jango Fett several years later, when the bounty hunter was on Tatooine to gain an audience with Gardulla and Jabba.
this Imperial Customs Officer was one of the most powerful men in the Shesharile System during the height of the New Order. Only the local governor had more power. Orr was in charge of all in-system customs, and had the ability to confiscate and search any ships passing through Shesharile. In order to keep Orr happy, the local businessmen and trade cartels constantly invited him to parties and galas, and showered him with gifts. All of this was amusing to Orr, who was a rigid Imperial officer who believed in the exact letter of the law. This trait kept him from advancing beyond the rank of Captain, for his superiors were looking for men they could bend to their wills. His only known vice was an occasion smoke of tabacc, enjoyed through a carved bantha-bone pipe. Orr sought to advance in his position by wiping out all smuggling in the system, and was focused on capturing Shamus Falconi. This is something that Orr uncharacteristically was unable to do.
this Shyriiwook word was used as the suffix to many Wookiee names. It translated into Basic as "treasure" or "worthy". It could be attached to a prefix by itself, or combined with other suffixes to form a complete Wookiee name.
this luxury space liner made a regular run between Coruscant and several Rim planets, with a stop at Star Station 9, during the years leading up to the Battle of Yavin. Abal Karda fled Star Station 9 aboard this ship, disguised as a Duhman, before landing on Maryx Minor. The Captain of the ship told Boba Fett that Karda had demanded to be let off at Maryx Minor, even though the planet wasn't on the ship's regular run. However, a meteor shower knocked out the Orramas' gyro system, and forced the Captain to land for repairs. The nearest world just happened to be Maryx Minor.
this large beast was used as a mount by Geonosian warriors. The average orray resembled a crocodilian reptile which moved about on four tall legs. The orray was once a predator of the Geonosians themselves, rooting out the newly-filled hives and eating the eggs of thousands of larvae. Over the generations, the orrays have been domesticated by the Geonosians. The tail of wild orrays was tipped with a long stinger, which was bobbed in domestic orrays. The Geonosians capped the tail with a metal fitting, to prevent it from regrowing the stinger.

this Tusken Raider was among a tribe that made repeated raids against the holdings of Gardulla the Hutt, during the years following the Battle of Naboo. Gardulla discovered that her own people were unable to locate and capture the tribe, so she issued a bounty for their capture. Jango Fett claimed several of these bounties when he was on Tatooine, trying to gain an audience with Gardulla and Jabba.
this Dresselian was the first to be given command of an Alliance Special Forces Unit. He was part of the Alliance team which assembled near Sullust, just prior to the Battle of Endor, to plan the assault on the second Death Star's shield generator. He was frustrated with the fact that the Alliance chose humans for its generals and leaders, especially the choices of Han Solo and Lando Calrissian. Orrimaarko felt that rank should be awarded by experience, not being in the right place at the right time.
