Golden Cuff, The
this bar was located in the lower levels of the planet Coruscant, during the last decades of the Old Republic. Despite its location, the Golden Cuff attracted a wide range of patrons from the governmental ranks, including Senators, lobbyists, and aides.
Golden Slug, The
this run-down flophouse was located in one of the seediest parts of Coruscant's underworld, during the last years of the Old Republic.
this huge combat droid was built by Lord Gar-Oth to fight for him in ritual combat. The Goliath was created to receive and comprehend the telepathic commands of Lord Gar-Oth, giving the droid the benefit of the Yahk-Tosh's mind. Lord Gar-Oth sent The Goliath into battle against Yoshi Raph-Elan, after the young Jedi claimed to be Princess Lourdes' husband. Lourdes herself killed Gar-Oth, severing the mental link to The Goliath. Yoshi then repaired his lightsaber, using parts from the droid, and destroyed its command module.
Gorm the Dissolver
an alien bounty hunter on Nar Shaddaa, Gorm was believed to have been a veteran of the Clone Wars. He was part cyborg, part living organism, but no one was sure how much of his body was not organic. It was later discovered that Gorm was a product of the Arkanian Renegades, created many years before the Battle of Naboo. Gorm was the only surviving member of their cyborg army, with a body that was made up from the parts of six distinct alien species and seven generations of droid electronics. This collection allowed Gorm to survive many hundreds of years. The rumors of Gorm's origins were revealed over the course of many years, especially when it was learned that Gorm's left arm was actually that of Vultar the Ugly. Gorm's true race was not known, but he often appeared to be more than alive. Severl years before the Battle of Naboo, Gorm was part of an unlikely group that was put together by Magus to hunt down Talesan Fry, after the young boy discovered their plans to assassinate twenty galactic leaders at a conference on Rondai-2. Although Gorm was captured and held for questioning, he eventually managed to escape. During the height of the Galactic Civil War, Gorm was shot and apparently killed on Nar Shaddaa by the inexperienced bounty hunter Greedo. However, his unusual body composition - made up from six or more alien bioconstructs - allowed him to survive Greedo's blast and return to action.

Grand Army of the Republic
the ground-based arm of the Old Republic's military, it was formed in response to the build-up of Separatist battle droids on Geonosis, just prior to the onset of the Clone Wars. It was based on the decision by Supreme Chancellor Palpatine to address the growing question of secession from the Republic, in an effort to put a stronger face on the Republic's desire to remain a single entity. Outwardly, Palpatine demanded that the Galactic Senate approve the formation of the Army as a fall-back option in the event that a peaceful solution could not be found. In reality, the vote was already decided through a series of bribes and blackmail, and paved the way for Palpatine's taking control of the galaxy as Emperor. Many members of the Galactic Senate opposed the formation of the GAR, preferring to work out a peaceful solution. However, the capture of Jedi Master Obi-Wan Kenobi by Count Dooku on Geonosis forced the Senate to re-evaluate the situation. It was the oration of Jar-Jar Binks, standing in for Senator Padme' Amidala of Naboo - who, ironically, was also a prisoner on Geonosis - that called for the approval of emergency powers for Chancellor Palpatine. With these new powers, Palpatine created the GAR. When it was founded, the GAR was formed from the 1,200,000 clones discovered on Kamino by Jedi Master Yoda. Over time, various disciplines were trained into the clones, ranging from standard troopers to clone commandos and ARC Troopers. At the height of the conflict, the GAR numbered some 3,000,000 troops, while the Special Forces Brigade added another 50,000 specialists. During the three years of fighting that led up to the First Battle of Coruscant and the end of the Clone Wars, more than half of the original clones had been killed in combat. However, their numbers accounted for the destruction of billions of battle droids. Each of the primary divisions of the GAR was commanded by a Jedi Knight or Master, depending on the scope of the division. As a rule, each Jedi was given a clone commander to work with, as a bodyguard and liaison to the troops. This arrangement proved quite useful when Order 66 was issued, as it ensured that every Jedi leader on the battlefield was covered by a clone commander.

Grand Concourse, The
this was the name given to the immense, circular hallway which led from The Atrium of the Old Republic's Senate Rotunda and provided access to the Convocation Center and the entire lower ring of the building. The Grand Concourse started and ended in The Atrium, but allowed beings to reach virtually any section of the Rotunda. After the Yuuzhan Vong took control of Coruscant and terraformed it into a new version of Yuuzhan'tar, much of the Grand Concourse was destroyed or bored out and refilled with yorik coral growths.
