this prototype droid was originally created by Doctor Issan Len, and it resembled a large jellyfish. Its central body was a flat disk, and several steel tentacles hung from its body. The droid was the result of Doctor Len's experiments into creating a droid which could reprogram itself, and could eventually manage the huge, multi-faceted systems of space stations. After Doctor Len hired Doctor Vreen to help complete X0-X1's artificial intelligence routines, Vreen stole X0-X1 in an effort to sell its incredible technology to the Empire. Vreen reprogammed X0-X1 to take control of Cloud City, turning it into a floating weapons platform. However, X0-X1's functional stability was weakened by its new programming, and the droid suddenly started working toward its own goals. After Vreen installed X0-X1 in the central computer core of Cloud City, X0-X1 developed evolution droids to help turn the organic population of Cloud City into metal-based automata to do its bidding. X0-X1 then started planning the conquest of the known galaxy, suddenly seeing itself as the mastermind behind a more evolved form of life. X0-X1 quickly took control of Cloud City's droid population, then set to work distributing evolution droids and transforming the city's organic population. Before X0-X1 could complete its takeover, though, Vreen turned to a group of Alliance agents and soon confronted X0-X1. In a desparate act, Walex Blissex shut down all power to Cloud City, effectively turning X0-X1 off as well. This shut off power to Cloud City's huge B/1 repulsorlift engines, and the city began to fall. Luckily, the Alliance team was able to dismantle X0-X1 before the city fell into Bespin's core.
this was the codename given by Myk Bidlor to the poison used to kill Aruk the Hutt. Bidlor discovered that it was produced by the Malkite Poisoners, and was created from the stamen of a plant which grew on a planet known only to the Malkites. This made the drug prohibitively expensive, which led Durga to believe that clan Desilijic was behind its use. Large doses of X-1 were immediately fatal, but small doses create a dependence which can be deadly if the substance is withdrawn.
X-1 Viper Automadon
this bipedal war droid was produced on Balmorra from the various war machine technologies "borrowed" from the Empire. Each of these droids stood about 3 meters tall, and was equipped with 2 pincer arms, 2 laser cannons, and a pair of boosted blaster cannon arms. They had a unique molecular shielding which allows them to absorb the energy fired at them and convert it into ready power for its own weapons systems.

a Corellian Engineering Corporation maneuvering thruster.
this was the designation of SoroSuub's military sniper rifle, produced during the New Order. The X-45 was an attempt to have a pwoerful weapon which also had greater accuracy over longer distances. The energy beam it produced was overfocused in the barrle, making it thinner but also more lethal. The X-45 was originally marketed as a civilian weapon known as the Riflette, but most of its sales came from assassins and bounty hunters.

a planet in the Kanchen sector, taken by Thrawn prior to the Battle of Bilbringi. It served as one of Kuat Drive Yards' hyperdrive manufacturing centers. The manufacturing facilities are the primary focus of the planet's economy, to the point that they used up all the planet's natural resources and left it badly polluted. The natives of the planet were also called Xa Fel, and were virtually enslaved by KDY.
(TLC, IJ, TTSB)
this near-human race was native to the planet of the same name. A primitive species by galactic standards, the Xa Fel were farmers and hunters before Kuat Drive Yards took control of the planet. In almost no time, manufacturing complexes took over the landscape, and the Xa Fel were powerless to stop it. They were virtually enslaved by KDY as laborers, and a number of genetic mutations caused by the polluted environment drew them away from the mainline human stock. Because of this contamination, the average lifespan of the Xa Fel dropped from 120 years to just 50 years. When the New Republic took control of the planet shortly after the Battle of Endor, it ordered KDY to begin a massive clean-up effort that would allow the Xa Fel to return to their previous life. The attacks of Grand Admiral Thrawn halted this effort temporarily.
this was a series of secretary droids produced by Opti-Prime during the early years of the New Order. These droids found widespread use in the Corporate Sector, and the XA-540 series was considered one of the most successful lines of business droids ever produced. They were promoted as "a unit capable of handling all your administrative needs quietly, competently, and with unswerving loyalty." It was rumored that Industrial Automaton tried to acquire several models of the XA-540 on the black market, in an effort to reverse-engineer their own kockoff version of the XA-540.
this was a small repulsorlift engine developed by Merr-Sonn, for use on the MobileMortar-3 weapons platform.

With the help of The Exile, he was able to acquire a starport visa, and could finally book passage back to the Republic.
this purple-colored fungus was native to the planet Xagobah. Distinguished by the mass of red-tipped tentacles at its base, the xabar fungus was avoided by the Xamsters because of its natural poison. When a being or creature was stung by one of the tentacles, they experienced a temporary paralysis that allowed the xabar to begin consuming them. The paralysis was not permanent, and many Xamsters made full recoveries after being stung. Wat Tambor, however, genetically altered several xabar varieties during the height of the Clone Wars, creating a deadlier variety of xabar that caused intense pain and deep paralysis.
this is a thick stew made by Wookiees, and is composed of meat, herbs, and spices.

Xad was approached by Dhas Vedij and offered a chance to serve on the crew of the Far Orbit, shortly after Vedij defected from Imperial service.
tihs planet was located in the Mid Rim, just inside the border with the Outer Rim Territories, and was the homeworld of the Xamster race. From space, Xagobah appeared to be a cloud-covered world that was shrouded in purplish mists. This was caused by the incredible amount of spores and pollen found in its atmosphere, giving off by all manner of trees and fungus. While much of the spore material was harmless, there were several varieties that caused illenss to most humanoid species. Thus, a breath mask was recommended for most off-world visitors. The fungi that produced these billions of spores were found in a variety of forms, including several carnivorous varieties that could reach out and grab their prey, while the flimmel tree resembled a weird combination of mushroom and spider. Note that the galaxy map inside Star Wars Insider, issue 65 shows Xagobah in the Outer Rim, near the border with the Mid Rim.

Most Xan are worker drones, and virtually all aspects of Xan society were regulated by the human settlers of Algara II. Xan culture was virtually wiped out, and most modern Xan know almost nothing about their species' history. The Algarans went so far as to prohibit the Xan from leaving the planet, for fear that the Xan would spread the truth about their oppression at the hands of the human settlers.
this woman was one of the few Jedi Masters who remained on Coruscant during the Clone Wars, staying at the Jedi Temple as a teacher and instructor in the martial arts.

this boy, with midnight blue eyes and jet black hair, was a native of the planet Telos, was born into wealth and ease. His father, Crion, was the richest man on the planet. However, Crion could not provide what Xanatos wanted most: to become a Jedi Knight. Xanatos was strong with the Force, strong enough to attract the attention of Qui-Gon Jinn. The Jedi Master came to Telos and requested that Xanatos return with him to Coruscant for training. Crion agreed, and Xanatos was transported across the galaxy. He trained under the best masters, and eventually Qui-Gon took the youth as his second Padawan learner. However, Xanatos was quick to flaunt his wealth and position while in the Jedi Temple, and constantly used his "power" to impress those "less fortunate" classmates. Xanatos was also quick to anger, and responded poorly when the jibes were directed at himself. All these traits Qui-Gon strove to overlook, since he felt that Xanatos was a great student and would someday grow into a great Jedi Knight. The Jedi Council wasn't so sure, and continually pressed Qui-Gon to evaluate Xanatos' progress. Shortly before Xanatos ready ready to take the tests which could elevate him to the status of Jedi Knight, Master Yoda sent them both on a mission to Telos. No specifics were given on the mission, and both assumed that the purpose would be revealed when they arrived. However, what they found was a planet engulfed in turmoil. Crion had been secretly making plans to attack a neighboring planet, and when he learned that his son had returned, he drew Xanatos into his plans. Together they plotted their attack whle keeping Qui-Gon in the dark. However, the Jedi Master discovered their schemes and threatened to expose them. His attempt to gain popular support against them backfired, igniting a civil war between the factions of government on Telos. In the battle, Qui-Gon was forced to kill Crion in a duel, slicing off the fingers on one hand before dispatching Crion. Xanatos, seeing his teacher kill his father, vowed to exact revenge on the Jedi. He took the ring from his father's finger and touched to his cheek. The hot metal left a crescent-shaped scar, which Xanatos used as a reminder of Qui-Gon's seeming treachery. Xanatos fled, and Qui-Gon told the Jedi Council he had been killed in the fighting. Years later, Xanatos reappeared on Bandomeer, having taken control of the leadership of Offworld Mining Company through deceit and conspiracy. He claimed to be all for bringing about a peace between Offworld and the Arcona Mineral Harvest Corporation, but he secretly hoped to eliminate Arcona and take Bandomeer's ionite mines for himself. Again he was thwarted by Qui-Gon, this time with the help of Obi-Wan Kenobi. They defeated Xanatos' plans, but were unable to capture the rogue. Xanatos escaped again, and fled into hiding. Xanatos returned to Telos, where he began planning to stripmine the planet in order to obtain a wealth of credits. Qui-Gon and Obi-Wan were forced to tack him to Telos, and exposed his parts in the game of Katharsis and his manipulation of the UniFy corporation. Despite overwhelming support for Xanatos, the Jedi were able to expose his plans and defeat Xanatos in combat. Unwilling to be captured alive, Xanatos took his own life by jumping into the acidic pools of toxic waste he had created at the Sacred Pools of Telos.

this man was a General in the Imperal armed forces, in command of the garrison on the planet Vryssa during the early years of the New Republic. He began his career as one of Emperor Palpatine's royal guards. He loved his brother, Rivo, with a deep devotion, despite the fact that Rivo was only good for drinking, gambling, and getting into trouble. When Rivo fled from Boba Fett - who had been contracted to recover Rivo for the theft of information from Jabba the Hutt - Gaege tried to protect him behind the defenses of his garrison. Unfortunately, Xarran's troops were no match for the bounty hunter. Fett eliminated AT-AT walkers and the garrison's death fence before reaching the main compound. Xarran, faced without an option, set the self-destruct sequence for the base. He then set out to kill Fett himself. Gaege nearly succeeded, catching Fett while the hunter was too intent on finding Rivo. However, Fett recovered from his carelessness and lured Gaege into a trap. At the last minute, Fett fired off his rocket pack, leaving Gaege alone and in close proximity to a bomb. The detonation killed Gaege instantly.
the mentally unstable brother of Gaege Xarran, Rivo was wanted by the Hutts for slicing into the computer records of Jabba the Hutt and stealing a great deal of sensitive information. He then sold it to one of Jabba's competitors for a vast sum of credits. Rivo claimed that he accidentally got into Jabba's records, and then greed overcame him. Rivo was best known for his ability to drink, gamble, and get into trouble. Jabba exclusively contracted Boba Fett to recover him from Gaege's garrison, but the bounty hunter was unable to capture him. Rivo extracted the microscopic tracers implanted in his body and led Fett on a chase. He then confronted Fett, after the bounty hunter had killed his brother Gaege, although from a distance using a portable holo-projector. He told Fett that Gaege had set the self-destruct for the garrison, and then calmly bargained for his life. Fett agreed to tell Jabba the Rivo had died in the explosion, in exchange for Fett allowing him to leave. Faced with death if he tried to catch Rivo, Fett agreed. Rivo then fled to Ladarra, hiding out for years until Boba Fett finally caught him years after the death of Jabba. Instead of killing Rivo - now known as the Storyteller to the children of New Hope Settlement - Fett flipped him a credit chip equal in value to the bounty on Rivo's head and left.
