this agricultural world was home to one of the Corporate Sector Authority Data Centers, during the early years of the New Order. Much of the planet's landmass was set aside for agriculture, with well-laid-out plots that formed a patchwork of grains when viewed from orbit. The planet's minimal axial tilt meant that its seasons were quite similar throughout most of its latitudes, making year-round cultivation possible. The CSA had quickly recognized that Orron III's ability to regularly produce foodstuffs had many advantages, and quickly took control of the planet. Because of the presence of the Data Center, only two types of ships were allowed passage to the planet: drone barges for transporting crops off the planet, and Authority fleet ships. During the height of the New Order, Han Solo agreed to pick up Rekkon there, as part of his payment to Jessa for repairs to his ship. In order to get Han onto the planet, Jessa disguised the Millennium Falcon as a grain barge.

an Alliance operative used heavily during the early years of the Galactic Civil War, Jan Ors was a native of the planet Alderaan. She learned to dance from her mother, who worked as a choreographer for Alderaan's premier ballet company. She learned how to work on starships from her father, who was an aerospace engineer. During a mission aboard the Star of Empire, Jan was captured by the Empire when her cover was blown. Imprisoned without hope, she found an ear to bend when she met Kyle Katarn. Realizing Kyle's ambivalence toward the Empire, she cultivated a relationship with him until he agreed to help her escape from the prison. When they finally escaped, Jan Ors met with Mon Mothma and persuaded the Alliance leader to hire Kyle Katarn as a mercenary and commando. It was rumored that Jan exaggerated Kyle's trustworthiness in order to convince the leader of the Alliance of what she truly felt in her heart. Shortly thereafter, Jan was captured by Jabba the Hutt and held as a bargaining chip against the Alliance, until she was again rescued by Kyle Katarn. She became one of the few people Kyle trusted, and was also one of the few people he could count on to help him get out of sticky situations. The relationship between Jan and Kyle continued to grow, and they became a formidable team of agents. They continued to work together during the era of the New Republic, until Kyle went to Yavin 4 to train as a Jedi. Jan continued to work for the Republic, taking a position on the Alpha Blue team and eventually succeeding Hiram Drayson as the team's leader, until she was reunited with Kyle shortly before the Yuuzhan Vong invasion of the galaxy. It was during the invasion that Kyle first asked Jan to marry him, and his initial reasoning caused her to decline the offer. She didn't want to get married because they might die any day. She told Kyle that she would marry him when they were ready to get out of the military and settle down to raise a family. After Kyle disappeared following the Yuuzhan Vong War, Jan spent much of her free time with Jaden Korr, hoping that his bond to the Force could help her locate Kyle. They found him in the Cloak of the Sith, where he had captured by Daye Azur-Jamin. After they managed to free Kyle and restore Daye to the Light Side of the Force, the group learned of a Force-sensitive Yuuzhan Vong female, and set out to locate her.

primary planet in the Orto system, it is a cold world orbitting a red dwarf star. It is the homeworld of the Ortolan race. Water is plentiful on Orto, but most of it is locked in polar icecaps. The only arable land is located along the planet's equator. When scientists found a huge crated buried under the northern polar ice cap, they built a theory that the planet had been hit eons ago by a large body. This impact caused the planet to undergo numerous ecological and physical changes: dust from the collision clogging the atmosphere, the impact knocking the planet out of its original orbit, and the force of the impact creating a new axial tilt. Thus, Orto is the inhospitable planet it is today, although its thin atmosphere is rich in oxygen. The average day on Orto lasts about 24 standard hours, and is years lasts 589 local days.

this is a race of blue-furred, elephantine bipeds native to the planet Orto. They have floppy ears and pudgy fingers, and are known for their insatiable appetites. They are descended from a nocturnal race of creatures, and retain many of their original characteristics. Their eyesight is excellent in dim light, but bright lights hurt them. Their ears are sensitive to sound waves, and their noses are filled with tympanic organs that increase their sense of hearing. The normal mode of conversation among the Ortolans is conducted at subsonic levels, with sounds being emitted through their noses. Their noses also contain sensitive olfactory organs. A small mouth is located beneath their nose. Infant Ortolans are born almost fully developed, and are raised until the age of seven. At that time, most are thrown out of their parents' homes to fend for themselves. In the distant past, after Orto was struck by a large mass, the Ortolan race was much smaller. They managed to survive the devastation because they ate very little, while the larger predators starved to death. Over time, their brains continued to develop, and they developed a basic technology and a high level of industrialization. Note that X-Wing: Solo Command includes a reference to a pink-skinned Ortolan.

As part of their inheritance, each sibling received a pendant made of green stone, to identify them as members of the family. Osaji Hux was considered a recluse who only communicated through his brother, Osaji Uhares. However, many beings considered Osaji Hux to be the true boss of the Syndicate, once Osaji Shimka was dead. In order to protect her interests, Osaji Hux moved her base of operations to the remote world of Muskree. During the height of the Galactic Civil War, all three siblings found themselves the objects of unwanted attention. They were all wanted for questioning by the Imperial authorities, and they were targetted for assassination by an unknown source. After the deaths of her brothers, Osaji Hux revealed to the freelance mercenaries that she had been the being who hired them, as a way to eliminate any contention for control of the Osaji Syndicate. As she was about to kill the mercenaries, the Imperials who had been tracking her arrived on Muskreee. A firefight broke out, and Osaji Hux found herself alone after her bodyguards fled at the sight of Imperial stormtroopers. However, in the resulting confusion, Osaji Hux managed to escape from Muskree and was not heard from again.

this was one of Osaji Shimka's three triplet heirs, all of whom inherited an equal share of the Osaji Syndicate when their father was assassinated on Axum some three years before the Battle of Hoth. As part of their inheritance, each sibling received a pendant made of green stone, to identify them as members of the family. A former droid researcher and engineer, Osaji Uhares assumed control of the Syndicate's illegal operations after the death of his father, prefering to keep a low profile from a base of operations on Centares.

this is the capital city of the planet Osarian. Nom Anor launched a missile strike against the city, when Rhommamool and Osarian were at their orbital closest, in an effort to engage them in a civil war that would draw the attention of the New Republic away from the Yuuzhan Vong base on Helska and the start of their invasion. Much of the city was destroyed before Commander Ackdool and the Mediator could react to the launch, much to the consternation of the Osarians.
this planet orbitted its star in an ellipse that brought it very close to Rhommamool every ten years. Like Rhommamool, Osarian was not a technologically-advanced world when it petitioned the New Republic to mediate a centuries-old feud which had been refueled by Nom Anor. The feud sprang from the fact that Osarian was a pleasant, temperate world, while Rhommamool was a desolate place originally colonized by criminals sentenced to work in the mines. The Osarians who settled on the planet were more or less the wardens and caretakers of the mining colonists of Rhommamool, a kind of master-slave relationship that wore relations between the two planets quite thin. Neither planet had developed the ability to travel through space, and the Osarians employed a mercenary band of Rodians to protect themselves from Rhommamool. Just before Nom Anor fled the system in order to join the Yuuzhan Vong attack force, he launched a series of missiles at Osa-Prime, leaving the city in ruins and sparking a full-scale war between the two planet.
this is the name of the native race of the planet Osarian.

this man was a reporter for the Eye on Cularin news program, during the height of the Clone Wars. It was rumored that he was once a podracing announcer who reported on race status from the pits. He was supposedly beaten to a pulp during a live broadcast when he dropped a microphone into the engineof Sebulba's racer. After joining the Cularin Central Broadcasting team, he was among the first reporters to bring to light the meaning of the TINYF graffiti that began to show up on the buildings of Cularin's cities. It was his report that dubbed the graffiti "Tiny F", a phrase which quickly gained popularity. In a follow-on interview with an undisclosed source, Osentay exposed the connection between the Thaereian Military and the InterGalactic Banking Clan, and opened up a dialogue on the widespread corruption throughout Cularin's businesses and government. His source was revealed to be Gerta Haman, who was brutally subdued by Thaereian military police. Ryk, undaunted, later reported on Gerta's death near Thaere. His investigative work later took him to Tolea Biqua, to report on the legacy of Riboga. None of the beings he approached wanted to talk to him, and he was unaware that the CCB turned his interviews into a sort of comedy show. During one attempt to interview an Ugnaught, Ryk was badly beaten by the short-statured being, while his camerabeing recorded the entire incident. This footage was later used when Ryk returned to active duty - still recovering from surgery and rehabilitation - as part of the lead-in to his interview with Brin Hesk'l.
this was primary star in the Oseon System, which was orbited by seven distinct bands of asteroids rather than solid planets.
one of the thousands of small asteroids in the Oseon system, Oseon 2795 was one of the closer asteroids to the star Oseon. It was therefore very hot, and its life support systems and its air coolers had to be meticulously maintained. Its primary commerce was centered around a mining operation, rather than the usual pleasure specialties of other planetoids in the system. Lando Calrissian stopped there shortly after winning the Millennium Falcon in a sabacc match, due mainly to his poor navigational skills. He had been trying to reach the Dela system.
this asteroid, located in the famous Oseon System, was the site of the most impressive personal estate in the area. Owned by Ema Slake, the facilities on 5631 surpassed even those of Bohhuah Mutdah's residence on Oseon 5792.
this asteroid was owned by Bohhuah Mutdah, during the early years of the New Order. Oseon 5792 had been specially modified to Mutdah's needs. The disk-shaped asteroid, which measured fifteen kilometers at its widest and three kilometers at its smallest, was covered with a domed version of paradise. Multiple transparent covers housed living spaces and vast gardens. The underside of the asteroid was built up to form a vast spaceport which was heavily armed and guarded. The gravity on the asteroid had to be specially modified to allow Mutdah to move his vast bulk with as little effort as possible. The asteroid itself was destroyed just after Rokur Gepta killed Butdah and took his place, in an effort to kill Lando Calrissian. Lando managed to escape, but was beseiged by Klyn Shanga's fighters during his flight. One of the fighters took a hit from the Millennium Falcon's guns and crashed into one of the top-side domes, breeching it and setting off a destructive chain reaction in the asteroid's systems. In no time, Oseon 5792 exploded, causing shockwaves throughout the Fifth Belt and its immediate neighbors.
the largest asteroid in the Oseon system, Oseon 6845 was also one of the most luxurious of all the Oseon asteroids. Located within the sixth asteroid belt in the system, it was home to the famous Esplanade. When Lando Calrissian left the Rafa System with what was the last cargo of life crystals ever exported, during the early years of the New Order, he returned to the Oseon System - and Oseon 6845 in particular - to try and win some big money. He had found that the vast wealth he obtained from the life crystals quickly got sucked away in maintaining his new starship, the Millennium Falcon. Oseon 6845 had been artificially accelerated to reduce its daily cycle to 25 hours, closer to the galactic standard.
one of the many asteroids located in the Oseon System, 8920 was considered by many to be a miniature version of Nar Shaddaa. Criminals of all shapes and sizes hid from other criminals on the asteroid, which was one targeted for destruction by the Oseoni police force. However, the denizens of 8920 proved to be too great a source of information to eliminate.
this delicious brandy was produced in the Oseon System.
this was the primary law enforcement agency that protected the Oseon System, during the early years of the New Order.
a system of seven bands of asteroids orbiting the star Oseon, the Oseon System was named for Gadfrey Oseon. Unlike most other star systems, the Oseon lacked any planets, being encircled only by the seven asteroid belts. No one knew how the Oseon System had been formed, although many theories pointed to a rogue star passing through the system more than a billion years before the Galactic Civil War and reducing its seven planets to rubble. Those asteroids that were inhabited were primarily vacation sites and pleasure spots for the filthy rich of the galaxy. The Oseon System was also the home to a huge population of mynocks, and any ships travelling through the system were well-advised to protect their ships from the parasites. Oseon, the system's primary star, flared up annually in a spectacular display known as the Flamewind, which prohibited traffic and communications for several days. A major influx of tourists was always seen just before the Flamewind, providing even more income to the already wealthy system. The asteroids within the system were numbered with four-digit names. The first number represented which band the asteroid was in; the other three were just counters that seemed to indicate the order in which the asteroids were settled.

this legendary crimelord operated a traveling circus that served as a front for his illicit operations. Legend says he got into trouble during a performance on Nal Hutta, and fled to the most remote area of space he could find. There, he discovered a star system made up of seven belts of asteroids and no solid planets, which eventually came to be known as the Oseon System. He was forced to remain in the system because of the occurrence of the Flamewind, and he began dreaming of using the wondrous natural event as a tourist attraction.
this was the term used to describe any native of the Oseon system.
OSETS stands for Orbtal Solar Energy Transfer Satellite, which is one of the many solar heat collectors used to focus sunlight onto the surface of Coruscant. These collectors provide heat to the moderately cold world, and also serve to melt the polar icecaps for water. OSETS 2711 was commandeered by Rogue Sqaudron and Winter, as part of their last-minute plans to knock out the planet's shields in preparation for a New Republic assault. They caused OSETS 2711 to heat a water resevoir to boiling, creating a huge series of thunderstorms that knocked out the planet's computer systems, bringing the shields down. OSETS 2711 was under the command of Virar Needa at the time.

this Rattatak warlord was known for his vicious lust for power. Sometime before the Clone Wars, Kirske murdered the parents of Asajj Ventress, an act that would come to haunt him later in life. After Ventress was taken in by Jedi Master Ky Narec, Kirske recognized that the pair were a threat to his power. He banded together with the other warlords to murder Narec, but Ventress managed to escape. With her training incomplete, Ventress gave into the anger and hate she felt at Kirske and the Jedi, and succombed to the Dark Side of the Force. In her anger, she hunted down and eventually captured Kirske and his supporters, locking them away in a dungeon to secure her own position as the leader of Rattatak. After the Battle of Jabiim, Kirkse was freed from prison by Obi-Wan Kenobi, who himself had managed to escape the dungeon. Despite their differences, Obi-Wan and Kirske agreed to work together to complete their escape, although Kirske ultimately wanted to make Ventress pay for her actions. He wsa unprepared for her skill, however, and attacked her without recognizing it. Ventress drew her lightsaber and beheaded Kirske before he could strike a single blow.

Jabba the Hutt once had one of these beasts as a pet in his Tatooine palace. These creatures have only rudimentary sensory systems, but are extremely stubborn and will track their prey for several weeks. Quite often, the simple sight of a humanoid creature will send the Oskan blood eater into a feeding frenzy. Many xenoarchaeologists and xenobiologists believe that the Oskan Blood Eater was artifically developed at some point in the past, pointing to the lack of mythological or historical data from the civilizations of the planets on which they live. The Empire distributed propaganda that these creatures were created by the Old Republic, in an effort to hide the truth: the Oskan Blood Eaters were the result of a secret Imperial project.

this form of portal shielding was used to maintain a certain level of atmospheric conditions within a room or building. When placed at a doorway or other entrance, the osmotic field could be tuned allow air but not particulate matter - including insects and larger creatures - pass through it into the room. More advanced models also had entropic overlays that pulled energy from the incoming air, thereby cooling it and dropping the temperature within the room. Despite the tuning that could be done with osmotic field, it was virtually harmless to most sentient races, which could push through the field to enter the room with minimal effort.
