Jabba the Hut
In the Marvel comics adaptation of Star Wars: A New Hope, Jabba resembles an Imzig or Nimbanel humanoid. Note that the word 'Hut' was spelled with just one T, making it more of a title than a description of his race. After his ship, the Voidraker, was disabled by stone mites near Orleon, Jabba had to flee into the vacuum of space in an spacesuit. In order to survive, he was allowed to come aboard the Millennium Falcon by Han Solo, on the condition that Jabba cleared Solo's debt and paid extra for the rescue in the process. Jabba agreed, but his mind was already working on a way to make the situation work to his favor. Note that this event was proven apocryphal with the release of Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the Jedi., although it was entirely possible that Jabba reneged on the deal as soon as he was safe.

Jannik the White
this light-skinned Rodian was the leader of the Reeven clan, during the years following the Battle of Naboo. In order to defeat his bitter rival, Evo the Blue and the Cairn clan, Jannik hired the services of Nym and his mercenary gang. Despite the fact that Nym destroyed the Cairns, Jannik refused to pay the mercenary his fees. Nym stole the war treasure which had been won by the Reeven clan and fled. This act of treachery was simply an act for the public cameras, as Jannik later joined Nym's gang and took half the profits from the defeat of the Cairns. When Nym agreed to help Ambassador Loreli Ro and the Mere put a stop to the predations of Sol Sixxa, Jannik became a full part of Nym's crew. However, Jannik was badly wounded in hand-to-hand combat with Sol Sixxa, who shoved a long knife into Jannik's chest. Luckily for the Rodian, the blade missed his major organs, and Jannik survived the battle.
Jedi Code, The
this was the name given to the basic tenets of the Jedi Knights, the Jedi Code was established from the writings of Jedi Master Odan-Urr some 4,000 years before the Battle of Yavin. The basic Code altered in form but never content over the millennia, and read as follows: "There is no emotion; there is peace. There is no ignorance; there is knowledge. There is no passion; there is serenity. There is no chaos; there is harmony. There is no death; there is the Force." Among the other basic tenets was the notion that a Jedi Knight or Master could only take a single Padawan apprentice. This ensured that a teacher could not gain undue influence, and mirrored the limitations imposed by the Sith Lords. Among the deepest beliefs contained within the Jedi Code was that a Jedi must consider the actions of the Force before undertaking any action. This meant that a Jedi had to ensure that they were acting without emotion in every situation, so as not to draw power from the Dark Side of the Force. Among the most prominent teachings of Master Odan-Urr were the following:
To further clarify the Jedi Code, Master Odan-Urr went on to explain that there were eight distinct conclusions to any situation a Jedi might face, and that every one had to be considered before any action was taken. The eight conclusions - meditation, training, loyalty, integrity, morality, discretion, bravery, and fighting - all required understanding by a Jedi, so that they could resolve any situation that demanded a quick decision with the will of the Force already in mind.
- "Certainly a Jedi should know the Code, by word and by heart. But seemingly every Jedi is in some fashion negligent, from the lowest Padawan to the highest Master. Consequently, were someone to demand, 'What is the true meaning of the Jedi Code?' the Jedi who promptly answered would be rare indeed."
- "Every Jedi should spent time meditating each day on the will of the Force. The reason for this is simple: If one has unwittingly acted contrary to the will of the Force, recognizing the mistake soon after may still give on time to make amends."
- "To be brave in battle proves nothing. A Jedi should be prepared to put aside fear, regret, and uncertainty and either fight, run, surrender, or die."
- "If a Jedi ignites his lightsaber, he must be ready to take a life. If he is not so prepared, he must keep his weapon at his side."
- "Do not come to rely on the Force to the detriment of your other senses and abilities."
