Sign of the Tri-Forked Tongue
this seedy tavern was located in the underworld of the planet Coruscant, during the last years of the Old Republic. It was one of several businesses run by Hat Lo by himself, funded by profits he had skimmed from his agreements with the Hutts. The entrance to the tavern was denoted with a virtual-reality image of a huge monga serpent, its mouth open to reveal its three tongues.
this was one of the foremost of the laws set down by the Ammuud Code. The Silence was the law that was perhaps the most perfected among the seven ruling families, since it demanded that internal dealings among the clans be kept within the clans themselves. Thus, no clan member could speak about such dealings with another individual, regardless of their authority.
Silent Voices, The
this was the term used by the Anzati race to describe the unusual auroral lights that were often seen in the skies of their homeworld of Anzat. Many Anzati claimed that the lights had voices, and could communicate with them in their minds. The Anzati did little to dispel these stories as myths of urban legends, since stories of the Silent Voices originated in the earliest recorded history of their race. The original Anzati believed that the Silent Voices were the disembodied spirits of their dead, and formed a vast collection known as the Sea of Memory. It was this Sea of Memory that later became associated with the idea of "soup".
this mysterious group of veiled individuals began showing up in hospitals and medical facilities throughout the galaxy during the height of the Clone Wars. Their mission - which was communicated in writing and never spoken, thus the name of the group - was to assist doctors and surgeons in healing their patients simply by means of their presence. Members of The Silent always wore an identity-concealing osmotic veil when in the presence of the sick or injured, ostensibly to prevent transference of contagions. They never spoke, not even to each other, and took their meals in a private location. It was unknown how The Silent drew their strange power, but the evidence in their favor was startling. Those operating rooms and hospitals in which a member of The Silent was working experienced higher recovery rates than non-staffed facilities. Many believed that The Silent drew upon the Force, although the Jedi Order claimed no relation to The Silent.
Sink Hole, The
this was the name given to a section of the Agrilat Swamp Circuit, one of the most popular swoop racing courses of the New Order.
this drug, developed during the last years of the Old Republic, was believed to counteract the affects of alcohol in the systems of many humanoid races. With the correct dosage, a being could imbibe in large quantities of alcohol without suffering any of the long-lasting effects on the brain.
Sisters of the Crimson Mark
founded by the Aquar known as Vilhona, this band of female Aquar dedicated themselves to disrupting the operations of Nexcore Mining Corporation on the planet Velusia. Vilhona herself had been summarily fired and dumped into the lowest levels of Mount Hollow when it was discovered that NMC had tried to monopolize the mining of Velusia's seas, and Vilhona knew too much to keep her around. The Sisters rose up, opposing NMC's abuse of the Aquar people and its control of Velusia. Most of their crimes were small, but over time they began to cause real trouble for NMC.
Six Questions, The
this was one of the underlying tenets of the Bothan Spy Network. Under the concept of the Six Questions, an agent of the spynet learned how to gather more and more information from fewer and fewer questions by analyzing information holistically, rather than asking additional questions.
this was the name given to the seedy section of the city of Tyrena, on the planet Corellia.
