this was a species of immense, predatory insect that was native to the planet Kubindi. The scarypen used its segmented tail to stun or disable its prey. It then used it huge claws to grasp its prey, and injected a debilitating poison into the prey with its dagger-like stinger. Most scarpyens had black, chitinous shells, which allowed them to hide within the forests of Kubindi.

this shallow valley was located on the planet Iego, and it was here that the Diathim - also known as the Angels - dragged wayward starships and crashed them. It seemed to be covered with a sheet of ice, but the shiny surface was actually formed by the reflection of light off starship hulls. The Scatter was surrounded by the wreckage of thousands of starships, and the twisted wreckage made access to the valley floor difficult and dangerous. The survivors who managed to eke out an existence on Iego made their homes along the Scatter, using the hulls of starships as shelter.

this man was the Director of the New Republic Intelligence agency during the Yuuzhan Vong invasion of the galaxy. Prior to heading up the NRI, he had been an Admiral with the Republic's Fourth Fleet. He was distinguished by pale blue eyes and pronounced widow's peak, although many wondered how the frail-looking man could command such power and respect. Scaur and his forces worked in concert with the Chiss, Hapans and Bothans, gathering a wealth of information about Yuuzhan Vong culture and physiology under the auspices of the Alpha Red operation. Scaur was more than angry when Cal Omas and the leaders of the New Republic chose not to emply the Alpha Red virus, based on the concerns of the Jedi Knights. He harbored a deep-seated resentment toward the Jedi, but continued to work toward what he believed were the best interests of the galaxy. Years later, Scaur was placed in charge of organizing the missions to destroy the yammosks on Caluula and Toong'L, just prior to the anticipated Yuuzhan Vong attack on Mon Calamari. His posting as organizer was secondary to his true mission, which was to deploy a new strain of the Alpha Red virus at Caluula. When the virus worked too well, killing not only the Yuuzhan Vong and their biotechnology but also flitnats and winged-stars, the Alpha Red project was once again put on hold. With the surrender of the Yuuzhan Vong at Coruscant shortly afterward, Dif Scaur was quietly forced to resign his position by Cal Omas.

The various groups who designed and used the Scavengers quickly turned a profit, selling recycled metals and plastics back to the corporations that were manufacturing war materiel. The Scavenger moved about on two heavy treads, and was equipped with a pair of heavy-duty lifting arms. Six small tractor beam projectors ringed the main refuse chute, into which the arms dumped whatever refuse the droid located.

It was recovered by the Disciples of Ragnos some ten years after the Battle of Endor, and used by Tavion to drain the Force energy from many locations across the galaxy. The Dark Jedi then planned to utilize the stored power in the scepter to resurrect Marka Ragnos. Although Tavion reached Korriban and was able to transfer the power from the Scepter to Ragnos' tomb, she was killed in combat by Jaden Korr before Ragnos was able to possess her body. Korr then destroyed the Scepter with a slash of his lightsaber, forcing Ragnos back into his tomb.

School For The Learning, The
this was formal name of the Keganite educational facility for The Learning.
School of Hidden Widsom
this was the only known dueling academy to survive the Clone Wars and the rise of Emperor Palpatine. Founded by Ephaan Kenzon on his homeworld of Baltimn, the School of Hidden Wisdom was outwardly a quaint reminder of the chivalrous fighting styles of the Old Republic. What few beings knew was that the School served primarily to train Jedi Knights and other Force-sensitive individuals in the fight against the Empire. The irony of this situation was that virtually every other dueling academy of the Old Republic failed when popular opinion of the Jedi Order plummeted during the Clone Wars. However, this was the very reason the School of Hidden Wisdom was able to survive. Coupled with Baltimn's remote location, the School had never been heavily attended. When other academies died out, school officials decided to lay low, fading from the public consciousness. Then, as the atrocities of the Empire were revealed, Kenzon began to accept Jedi Knights who were fleeing the Emperor's Purge. He continued to train his students in combat arts as well as in the use of the Force, although Kenzon had abandoned the Jedi Order before becoming a Knight himself. Nevertheless, his maintenance of the School of Hidden Wisdom allowed a great many Jedi to survive and fight against the Empire which tried to destroy them. After the Battle of Endor, Kenzon realized that he had begun to attract the attention of the dying Empire. However, the emergence of the New Republic and the re-establishment of the Jedi under Master Luke Skywalker, gave Kenzon a reason to finally rest. He disbanded the School of Hidden Wisdom, especially after several of his students were accepted for further training at Skywalker's Jedi praxeum on Yavin 4.

this was the term used by the Iskalonians to describe the seventeen distinct races that made up their civilization. The exact origins of The School were lost over time, although environmental upheavals on many of the original homeworlds of the Iskalonians occurred in close temporal proximity, many millennia before the Galactic Civil War. These events were followed by several rescue missions, and many of the devastated races were relocated to the planet Iskalon, due to its similary to their homeworlds. Mammon Hoole later led an expedition to the ruined planets to further investigate the origins of The School.
this was a specialized form of datapad, used to transport schoolwork to and from the classroom.
this was another Huttese word for "fool," or any foolish being. It was less common than the term stoopa.
this was a species of vicious, stinging insest native to the Geroon homeworld. They were raised by the Geroon as a form of biological weapon, and they delivered a deadly poison with their stingers. Entire colonies of schostri could be grown in small, lumpy sacs that could be attached to a Geroon's arm, allowing the diminutive alien to pass most sensor scans and deliver the schostri into the target area. The schostri colony was genetically altered to accept the Geroon host as its queen or hive, and remained close by even when the Geroon moved around.

Scimitar Assault Bomber
one of the first new starfighters commissioned by Grand Admiral Thrawn, the Scimitar was developed by Captain Tomax Bren. It had the maneuverability of the TIE Interceptor or the X-Wing, the armament of a TIE bomber, and the ability to fly in an atmosphere. It was a dedicated bomber designed with the help of the Scimitar Assault Wing, from which it obtained its name. It had a long, central tube for a hull, and was the first TIE-like craft to be a two-man ship. The pilot and bomber sat in the forward section of the hull, which could be jettisoned in emergencies. This forward section was situated in front of the wings, providing enhanced visibility over most TIE designs. The middle section of the hull contained the power generators, sensors, and targetting computers. The rear section contained the bomb bays and engine. The Scimitar was different from the TIE Bomber in that it had only a single ion engine - paired with two interlocked repuslorlift engines - to propel it. It was armed with two racks of eight concussion missiles and two laser cannons. Proton grenades and free-falling thermal detonators can also be carried for deployment via the bomb bays. Roughly 13.8 meters in length, the Scimitar bomber has been rated at speeds of 850 kilometers per hour in atmospheric conditions. By introducing thrust from the repulsorlift engines, speeds of 1,000 kilometers per hour can be sustained during bombing runs. Note that the Star Wars Databank indicates that the Scimitar could attain speeds of 1,150 kilometers per hour in atmosphere, and 1,250 kilometers per hour on bombing runs. The Scimitar was protected by additional hull plating and the introduction of shields. The Scimitar was manufactured by Seinar Fleet Systems for several years after Thrawn's death, but it was eventually phased out of production.

Scimitar Assault Wing
known as the White Death because of the light-colored bodies of their starfighters and bombers, this subgroup of the Qeimet fleet consisted of three TIE Bomber squadrons, two TIE Fighter squadrons, and a recon/drop ship squadron. Under the command of Tomax Bren, the White Death squadrons bombarded key enemy emplacements, taking care not to destroy potentially useful locations. The squadron lent its name to the new Scimitar Assault Bomber, which was a much more accurate and devastating craft than the TIE Bomber. In the wake of the death of Grand Admiral Thrawn, Captain Bren and the Scimitar Assault Wing went into hiding.
(ISB, SWJ15, SWDB)
Scimitar Mark II Assault Bomber
this second generation of the Scimitar Assault Bomber was released shortly after the death and defeat of Grand Admiral Thrawn. It has improved repulsorlift and ion engines, compared to the original Scimitar bombers. This allowed for cruising speeds of 1,150 kilometers and hour, and bombing-run speeds of 1,250 kilometers an hour. Weapons and hull protection consistent with the original design.
Scimitar of Kelso
this AA-9 freighter made a regular run between Coruscant and Nar Shaddaa, during the early years of the New Order.

Once they complete their weapons training, they are sent out into the world to sell their services as mercenaries. Any credits they earn are returned to the monastery. The religious training allows the monks to obtain some ability to use the Force, although they don't understand what it is, and are not Jedi.
this Ugnaught was typical of his species in that he loved to tinker with machines and tools, but cared little for the mining life of his people. So, when he met Talandro Starlyte on Cloud City, Scizzic jumped at the chance to work for the rogue. Scizzic's first assignment - and many say it will be his only assignment - was to get Starlyte Stationup and running, after years of neglect. Once the Station was more or less self-sufficient, Scizzic went to work establishing the Graveyard repair facility. Scizzic developed a knack for modifying starships, and many independent owners sought him out for repairs.

this device is attached to a standard scomp link, and is used to destroy the computer system attached to the link. Once inserted into the scomp link, a power pack is then attached to the scomp-spiker. Once the scomp-spike is charged, it emitted a high-voltage spike of energy into the computer system, destroying the local computer substation and several downstream components.
this Imperial Navy Lieutenant was an executive officer on the Forger when it attacked Gra Ploven. He was later captured by the New Republic and imprisoned at the Jagg Island Detention facility. It was discovered, during the Yevethan Purge, that Sconn had spent time on N'zoth while part of the crew of the Moff Weblin. He was questioned by Leia Organa-Solo, and was able to provide valuable information about the Yevethan people to the New Republic.
a native of the planet Ryvellia, Sconn's parents were killed during an Imperial retaliatory strike on V'eldalv. Sienn was raised by his uncle, Cryle Cavv, who gave the orphan love and attention, and also taught him the finery points of being a thief. He turned to a life of crime, becoming a master thief by the time he was 23. He limits his work to obtaining wealth from former Imperials, crimelords, and the obnoxious rich beings of the galaxy. He has the uncanny ability to fall into the middle of trouble, and the equally uncanny ability to escape from it unharmed. He once stole a prototype weapon from Rythani Products and Moff Caerbellak, but this was part of a larger plot by Caerbellak to discover New Republic research facilities and command positions.

this clone commando, designated RC-1262, was among the first members of the original Delta Squad. Scorch was known as a competant soldier and a demolitions expert, and his ability to overstate the obvious irony of a situation made him the squad's resident wiseacre. He earned his nickname when an ordnance accident burned off his eyebrows. Like most of his fellow clones, Scorch saw action during the Battle of Geonosis.
this material was used to assist larger explosives to cause more damage, or to control the damage of an explosion. Made from an acid-based paste, which could withstand high temperatures, an individual could trace a pattern with the scorch stick. When ignited, the paste would burn a shallow score mark into the material, weakening it and allowing a larger explosive to crack it open.

this Trandoshan deity is responsible for judging each of the reptiloids upon its death. The Scorekeeper tallies the number of jagnannath points a Trandoshan collects, and determines the proper place for it in the afterlife. A female deity, the Scorekeeper is reptilian, with lidless eyes and a bloodthirtsy temperment. If she felt the whim, she could double a Trandoshan's jagannath points for a particularly brave and daring kill. She could also, as a point of pride, reduce a Trandoshan's count to zero for being captured or shamed.
this mercenary was employed by Begas Tok as a bodyguard, during the time that Tok tried to sell the Shard of Alderaan. Unknown to Tok, Scorn was also under orders from Jabba himself to kill Tok if the auction ended before Tok's debts could be paid off. Scorn was easily distinguished by the scars of his face, the reminders of a shoot-out battle with Lex Kempo. He was also noticeable by the cybernetic eye which replaced the real one lost in the battle. Scorn spent much of the rest of his career as a mercenary and hired gun, hoping for a chance to exact a painful revenge against Kempo. They met up on the Dune Princess, during Tok's auction of the Shard of Alderaan.
