this was the alias used by Tahl, when she infiltrated the reformed Absolutes on the planet New Apsolon, some nine years before the Battle of Naboo. (TTB)

T. Chamber
a group of container ships used by Galactic Electronics to supply the Pondut research station. (TIE)

T.I.E. Fighter
the original twin ion engine starfighter produced by Republic Seinar Systems, this ship served as the basis for the Imperial TIE Fighter. It was succeeded by the Imperial TIE, before giving way to the standard TIE/ln fighter. (SWJ10)

T-11
this was an out-dated, repeating blaster. (TG)

T-11
this JV-Z1/S databank droid served the Old Republic as a military tactics specialist. It was programmed with the details of thousands of skirmishes and battles, from feudal spats to incredible space campaigns. When the New Order was instituted, T-11 was poorly reprogrammed by Imperial engineers to pilot a garbage scow. The slicer who did the reprogramming failed to re-initialize several of T-11's memory circuits, and this didn't mesh well with its new programming. T-11 underwent several mutations of its basic subroutines, and its pattern of thought became erratic. The droid developed several distinct personalities, and disappeared only three months after its reprogramming. The droid and its garbage scow were eventually discovered by the Kaarenth Dissension, and was again destined for reprogramming. However, the personality in control of T-11 rebelled and would not condone a memory wipe. The master of the droid pool grew exhausted trying to fix T-11, and eventually assigned it to keep the Dissension's Skipray Blastboats ready for immediate takeoff. T-11 was quite paranoid, and felt that it was being stalked most of the time. (SWJ8)

T112110
this code provided access to the Trade Federation's concentration camp on the Street of Glory, during their invasion of the planet Naboo. (IOT)

T-12
this small droid assisted Ulic Qel-Droma in his search for Sith information on Onderon. (DLS)

T-13
an airspeeder built by Incom for terrestrial transportation. (SWSB)

this was the designation of the hyperdrive generator used on many Nubian starship designs, often mated to the 327 hyperdrive unit. (TPM, X1)

T-15
this was a model of snub-nosed blaster rifle produced by BlasTech during the New Order. (SWJ5)

T-1583
this Imperial research and development space station was attacked and overtaken by Sard Nightbringer and her forces, during their attempt to rid Tamarin Sector of Imperial control during the early years of the New Republic. Sard discovered that the Imperial researchers had been working on a new form of body armor which was protected by a new form of shields, and she decided to auction it off to the highest bidder in order to obtain funds for her organization. (POC)

T-16
a three-winged, triangular craft built by Incom for terrestrial transportation. Similar in controls to an X-Wing, they are often referred to as skyhoppers. The T-16 was equipped with an E-16/x ion engine afterburner, in addition to a pair of DCJ-45 repulsorlift engines, which gave it a top cruising speed of 1,200 kilometers per hour, as well as a 300 kilometer ceiling. The 5.2-meter-long craft was armed only with four stun lasers, and carried no shields. The top two lasers can be removed in favor of a targetting lasers, and the lower two lasers can be replaced with pneumatic cannons. With two wings pointing downward and the third wing standing straight up, the T-16 was a menaueverable craft that stood 10.4 meters in height. Luke Skywalker's uncle Owen Lars purchased a T-16 for him to use on Tatooine, which Luke used to fly the canyons and shoot womprats. (SW, SWSB, EGV, NEGV)

T-19
this starfighter was produced for the Old Republic by Torpil, during the height of the Clone Wars. It was an exceptionally fast ship, and many of the pilots who flew it during the war remarked that speeds of 650 kilometers per hour were essentially "standing still" for the T-19. (JT)

T-19 Star Burner
this was a high-speed sublight engine produced for small starships, during the early years of the New Republic. (BHKK)

T1-B
this was the designation of Yutrane-Tackata's hovertank. It was used by the Alliance during the early stages of the Galactic Civil War. It was designed to be a swift-moving anti-infantry and anti-aircraft weapons platform. (FC)

T2/5/Zero
this galactic quadrant contains the planet Phelarion. (CSWEA)

T21
see T-21 (GQRG)

T-21
BlasTech's light repeating blaster, the T-21 was a rifle-sized weapon which had a long, thick barrel. They were designed for military use, and could be adapted to use a larger power supply. This modification was not recommended, though, as the weapon tended to overheat under constant, heavy use. (RPG, CCG, EGW)

T-21 Hyper Particle Exchange Chamber
this fictional device was created by Adi Gallia, as a device which the Jedi planned to peddle to the Yinchorri in order to infiltrate their base on Yitheeth. (AOW)

T-23
an old model of skyhopper, similar to a T-16 in that its controls are very close to those of an X-Wing. (HTF)

T-238
a chemical weapon that induced severe nausea when dispersed, T-238 was developed by Czerka during the height of the New Order. for use in chemical-load grenades. (ISB, AEG)

T-24
this Incom repulsorlift airspeeder was antiquated by the era of the Battle of Naboo. It was considered the forerunner of the T-47 airspeeder used by the Alliance during the Galactic Civil War. Only 200 T-24 speeders were ever produced, and most of them ended up in museums. The T-24 had gullwing doors and a stubby fin-like wing atop its cockpit canopy. (LSOM)

T-289
this gas-filled stun grenade was manufactured by Czerka. (PP)

T-2c Personnel Transport
this was Cygnus Spaceworks' version of the Theta-class shuttle, built during the height of the Clone Wars for the Old Republic. Measuring 18.5 meters in length, the T-2c had a maximum wingspan of 29.3 meters and a height of 18.5 meters. The folding wings of this shuttle were designed primarily to project powerful, overlapping shields, but also provided maneuverability and stability in flight. Upon landing, the wings were folded up to allow the ship to settle onto its landing gear. Equipped with a Class 1 hyperdrive, the T-2c personnel transport had a range of some 8,000 light-years. Requiring a minimum of a pilot to operate, the T-2c was made easier to handle with the addition of a co-pilot, navigator, communications officer, and a weapons expert. The weaponry of the T-2c consisted of a pair of quad laser cannons and an aft-facing laser cannon. Darth Sidious had a T-2c shuttle specially-modified by Warthan's Wizards, giving it the ability communicate across vast distances, as well as installing sensor masks and other technology to make the shuttle appear empty to most scanners. (X3)

T-3 Series Droid
this was a heavy-duty model of navigation droid, created during the height of the New Order to assist in controlling vehicles that operated in harsh climates. (PZZ2)

T3 Web Comber
this outdated device was used to analyze computer networks. (IWE1)

T-32S
this light blaster was popular during the years surrounding the Battle of Naboo. (LFC)

T-32S
this light blaster pistol was a favorite among smugglers during the last decades of the Old Republic. (LFC)

T-33
this type of plasma torpedo was known as a shieldbuster, or a rotten egg. The T-33 was designed to detonate at a shield's perimeter, creating in intense radiation burst. This burst was several times more powerful that the combined power of a capital ship's ion cannons, and knocked out the target's shield generators. This allowed particle weapons to finish off the target. The T-33 was one of the New Republic's strongest weapons. (SOL)

T33-A
this was one of the two Alliance encryption codes used to protect communications with the Condor drop point facility. (SWJ14)

T-35
an Imperial tug. (XW)

T358723Q9930
this was the document number of a report by the Alliance's military, comparing the performance of standard Imperial and Alliance starfighters. (XW)

T-36 Skyfighter
this was a specialized skyhopper, built by Incom Industries during the height of the New Order to serve as a near-orbit defense ship. The mission profile of the T-36 was similar in many respects to that of the Imperial TIE Fighter. The body of the T-36 was based on the tri-winged design used in the T-16 skyhopper, but this meant that these craft were extremely susceptible to windshear, and pilots had to be careful around storms to avoid being disabled. This danger, coupled with the fact that the T-36 lacked inertial dampers and required a speciallized landing platform, made the T-36 a poor performer in its targetted role. Most of these craft were relegated to used as lightreconnaissance craft. Measuring 8.2 meters in length, the standard T-36 was a one-person craft that was armed with a double laser cannon. (SOT)

T3-B
this was the designation of Yutrane-Tackata's heavy attack tank. It was used by the Alliance during the early stages of the Galactic Civil War, but was considered slow and heavy. Thus, it was used during surface-to-surface engagements. The T3-B was armed with missile launchers and heavy blasters. (FC)

T3-M4
this ancient T3-series utility droid was created on the planet Taris some 4,000 years before the Battle of Yavin, modified to serve as a personal security unit. It was given light armor plating and upgradeable weaponry, and its programming was augmented for use in slicing into computer systems and breaking encryption codes. It was also provided with a variety of combat routines, many of which bent the rules about a droid's ability to harm a living being. T3-M4's owner was never publically identified, and its creator, Janice Nall, never told who ordered the droid. In reality, T3-M4 was originally designed for Davik Kang, but the droid was stolen by the courier who was employed to obtain it. Canderous Ordo had been chosen as the courier, but he managed to hire a group to purchase the droid before he could acquire it. Ordo then used the droid to slice into Taris' computer networks and steal the necessary codes for evading the Sith blockade of the planet. (KOTOR, SWDB)

T3-M8
this T3-series utility droid was repaired by Janice Nall and put up for sale at her shop on Taris, some 4,000 years before the Battle of Yavin. The droid was purchased by Carth Onasi and the survivors of the Endar Spire, but exploded shortly afterward. Janice Nall refunded their money, and eventually sold them T3-M4. (KOTOR)

T-3PO
this silver protocol droid served aboard the Subjugator. T-3PO was roughly humanoid, with insectile plating. Programmed with a harsh, female personality, her years of service aboard the Victory-class Star Destroyer made her hate the humans who treated her as a tool. Her programming kept her loyal to the Empire, but it also gave her a sense of being and worth. When the Subjugator was attacked by an Alliance fleet, T-3PO's programming told that she was superior to the other droids on the ship, and so she had to survive the encounter. As the other droids deserted their posts in the confusion, T-3PO realized that her only hope was to follow the Alliance agents accompanying Walex Blissex. It is unknown if T-3PO survived the destruction of the Subjugator. (SF)

T-3PO
this blue-tinted protocal droid was operating on the planet Trevura, during the height of the Galactic Civil War. T-3PO was a timid droid that worked for the assassin droid S-R6, and moved about the city of Voma in an attempt to purchase black-market versions of the experimental Imperial blasters being imported by Governor Merno Blask. It was later discovered that T-3PO had been outfitted with programming that allowed it to fire a blaster, giving T-3PO the ability to handle itself in a fight. (WOA14)

T3-series Droid
this utility droid was produced during the years leading up to the Great Sith War, some 4,000 years prior to the Battle of Yavin. Canine in stature, the T3-series utility droid was known for its versatility, reliability, and adaptability, and they were used throughout the galaxy for jobs like janitorial duties to complex mechanical repairs. While more expensive than most models, the T3 was built with the most up-to-date technology available to its manufacturers, and was easily upgraded or customized to meet any need. (KOTOR)

T-4
this large transport skimmer was developed for use by the Empire, and was designed to carry troops and equipment into battle. It could transport up to five tons of payload, and it was armed with a double-barreled energy cannon. (RAG)

T-4
this was the name of the fourth planet in the Thaereian System. During the years following the Battle of Naboo, the Smugglers' Confederation and the Cularin military discovered a hidden base on the planet. Representatives of the Metatheran Cartel and the Thaereian Military were seen working together with other criminal elements, stockpiling bacta and other supplies. (WOTC)

T-40
this was a model of flitter built by Incom during the Galactic Civil War. They could be armed with a double laser cannon for police and paramilitary use. (ML)

T-44
this was a power shunt, developed by the Baktoid Armor Workshop and sold throughout the galaxy during the last years of the Old Republic. (HNN5)

T-47
an Incom airspeeder which could transport 2 passengers and limited onboard cargo, the T-47 was originally designed as an atmosphere tugboat of sorts. The pilot controlled the craft's course, while the rear-facing "cargo manager" used magnetic harpoons to drag along repulsor-equipped cargo modules. However, because of their durability, the T-47 found widespread use on backwater planets as a transport vehicle. In its basic design, the T-47 could attain speeds near 1,000 kilometers per hour when unburdened, allowing it to quickly reach incoming ships. Some were converted into airspeeders, because the T-47 had a 250 kilometer ceiling. However, the Alliance was forced modified them for military use on the frozen world of Hoth, keeping them low to the ground to prevent freeze-ups. Alliance technicians added two fire-linked laser cannons, a power harpoon, and heavier shields. These craft could attain speeds of nearly 570 kilometers per hour. Other T-47s were modified to serve on water worlds, in deserts, or as high-altitude reconnaissance craft. In its base form, the T-47 measured 5.3 meters in length. (ESB, RPG, CHRN, NEGV)

T-4a
designation of Cygnus Spaceworks' Lambda-class shuttle. It measures 20 meters in length, has a crew complement of 4, and is armed with 10 Taim & Bak KX5 laser cannons. It has been rated at a top speed of 65 MGLT, with 100 SBD shields and a 25 RU hull. (XW, TIE)

T5
this was the model number of a force pike produced by Merr-Sonn. (AIR)

T-534D
this was the designation of a public transportation skylane, found on the planet Coruscant. (HNN4)

T5-G3
this protocol droid was modified by Imperial scientists for use as an espionage droid. However, a quirk in its programming surfaced in its logic dispenser that resulted in T5-G3 shutting down every six to eight months before its systems reboot. The droid was inserted into the New Republic's droid pool as a labor management droid, in hopes that it could provide information on the Republic's military actions. (WBC)

T-6
this BlasTech heavy blaster pistol was known to soldiers as the Thunderer, and was marketed as the ultimate "superheavy" blaster pistol. It was first produced to compete in the marketplace with SoroSuub's Renegade weapon, and was the weapon known to have ended the "blaster wars" between BlasTech, Merr-Sonn, and SoroSuub because of its incredible power. Unfortunately, the T-6 tended to overheat because of its power, and the barrel of the weapon could warp. If this occurred, especially during a firefight when the weapon is not allowed to cool down, the focusing crystals can be misaligned and the T-6 could explode in the user's hands. (WSV, GUN, AEG)

T-6 Diodem
this device, produced on the planet Arda-2, was used in starfighter targetting controls to establish a positive lock on a target. The natives of Arda-2 produced them for use by the Alliance, but they also produced a non-military version for certain household service devices. Mag Doum secretly recovered used home-service diodems and sold them to the Empire at significant markups. The Empire then installed them in TIE Fighters, and used them to attack Alliance starships. Luke Skywalker went to Arda-2 to protest what the Alliance saw as a direct sale of the T-6 to the Empire, and uncovered Mag Doum's plot. (CSWEA)

T-65A2
see X-Wing (UF)

T-65A3
one of the many improved designs of the Incom Industries X-Wing starfighter, the A3 was developed during the second decade of the New Republic. It boasted improved shielding and lasers, both of which required less power to operate, but were more efficient and accurate to use. It was bested in its generation only by the T-65XJ model developed for use by the Jedi Knights. One of the main upgrades on the T-65A3 was the secondary fire button on the command stick. It allowed the pilot to fire in a cycling, single-laser pattern no matter how the weapons were fire-linked. This secondary fire was shot out with less power than normal, allowing the weapons to cycle rapidly. This proved to be of use against the coralskippers of the Yuuzhan Vong, as it allowed pilots to pour larger amounts of energy into their black-hole shields, causing the shields to collapse. Regular firepower could then be used to punch through the coralskippers' rocky exterior. (DTO)

T-65AC4
this version of the Incom X-Wing starfighter was produced about ten years after the Battle of Endor. It had speed to match an A-Wing, but was still as rugged and sturdy as the original X-Wings. The AC4's incorporated numerous advances in targetting, fire control, and power distribution. Armament remained similar to the original, with four heavy laser cannons mounted on the wingtips and a proton torpedo launcher. (JASB, SOG)

T65-AFP
a new form of starship fuel pump introduced for use on X-Wings two years after the Battle of Endor. (XWN)

T-65b
an early version of the Incom X-Wing. (SWSB, RASB)

T-65BR
this version of the standard X-Wing starfighter was developed for use as a reconnaissance craft during the early years of the New Republic. The proton torpedo launchers were removed and replaced with high-gain long-range sensors. The T-65BR relied heavily on the use of an astromech, which acted not only as a navigational aid but as an automated controller of the sensor packages. Each T-65BR was also rigged with a deadman self-destruct system, which would destroy the ship if the pilot was ever killed in combat. This ensured that any data recovered by the ship would be lost and untraceable. (CTD)

T-65c A2
this was the model name of the first X-Wing starfighter to be mass-produced by Incom Industries. Because of its designation, the T65c A2 was sometimes considered a modified version of the X-Wing. (SWSB, RASB)

T-65D-A1
this version of the Incom X-Wing starfighter was introduced about seventeen years after the Battle of Endor. This X-Wing replaced the astromech R2 unit with additional computer power, providing more maneuverability and increased in-flight options for the pilot. The New Republic began replacing its old, aging T-65As with the T-65D-A1, until Cole Fardreamer discovered that their new shipboard computers were rigged with Imperial detonation devices. The computers had been built under the direction of Dolph, who planned to detonate them from Almania at a specified time. Cole found the detonators while repairing Luke Skywalker's old X-Wing, which was being refitted with the new computers. He showed the detonators to Wedge Antilles, who had originally ordered the newer X-Wings to replace the old ones. Wedge began recalling the newer ships before they could explode, and new computer systems were ordered to replace the rigged ones. (TNR)

T-65R
this version of the standard Incom X-Wing starfighter was designed for surveillance and reconnaissance. Known as a snoopscoot, it employed a pair of sensor pods which trailed behind the ship to gather data on a nearby world. The sensor equipment could be jettisoned if the ship was attacked, and the pods recovered later. The T-65R lacked weapons, so it was often accompanied by other starfighters. (IR)

T-65XJ
this heavily-modified version of the durable X-Wing starfighter was developed two decades after the Battle of Endor by Incom. Among the enhancements over the original models, the XJ had three proton torpedo launchers, each of which carried three torpedoes. The XJ series ship also had improved fire-linking capability, with the ability to link the four laser cannons in specific patterns of fire, rather than just combinations of the four guns. Thus the weapons could be configuration to fire a pair of dual bursts - from any combination of cannons - followed in the cycle by a single quad burst from all four cannons. The XJ was also equipped to use an R7-series astromech droid. Two of these ships found their way into the small fleet maintained by Kyp Durron, and many civilians believed that the "J" in the designation indicated that the ships were produced for the Jedi Knights. (VP, JE, BP, EVC)

T-65XJ3
this was the latest version of the original X-Wing T-65 starfighter, produced by Incom Industries during the height of the Yuuzhan Vong invasion of the galaxy. Among their many updates, the XJ3 series had variable-stutter lasers, decoy-enhanced proton torpedoes, and grab-proof shields. These sophisticated upgrades were all made in an attempt to give the starfighters some kind of advantage over the Yuuzhan Vong coralskippers and gravity-based technologies. They were especially useful when attacking alien ships using the so-called shadow bombs, since one torpedo launcher could be loaded with unpropelled missiles. (SBS, NJOSB)

T-70
an outdated model of landspeeder. Luke Skywalker owned one on Tatooine, before he sold it to pay for his passage to Alderaan. (COJ)

T-71
a model of skyhopper. (GOF4)

T-77
an experimental airspeeder used by Luke Skywalker and Kam Solusar while exploring the planet Ossus, the T-77 was a bulbous craft with a large turbine engine mounted at the rear. A weapon emplacement was located under the nose of the speeder. (DE2, NEGV)

T-81
this was a version of Incom airspeeder developed after the death of Grand Admiral Thrawn. (SOP)

T-831
this immense droid was developed and manufactured by Zubintech, during the last century of the Old Republic. (SWJ7)

T-9PM
this red-plated protocol droid served as a spaceport negotiator in Mos Eisley, on the planet Tatooine, during the years leading up to the Battle of Yavin. T-9PM, which had been programmed to consider himself more important than he really was, which served to hide the fact that T-9PM was owned by the Alliance. T-9PM served as the primary liaison to the various smugglers and misfits who fled Imperial control and wanted to assist the Alliance in overturning the Empire. (RESB)

Ta
this MC40a was part of the Alliance's fleet, during the Galactic Civil War. (XVT)

Ta'a Chume
the Queen Mother of the Hapan worlds during the era of the New Order, she is a devious woman who gave birth to two sons. She would stop at nothing to see her elder son married to a powerful new queen, but he was a pacifist and - in her mind - a weakling. So, she had him assassinated in order to elevate her younger son, Isolder, to the position of heir. When Isolder fell in love with Elliar, Ta'a Chume disagreed with his selection. She also had Elliar murdered, and pushed Isolder to marry a more fitting wife. Ta'a Chume also had a dislike for the Jedi Knights, and when she meets Luke Skywalker, the dislike only increases when Luke bests her in gaining information on Han Solo's whereabouts. She allowed the Old Republic some measure of respect, but when it crumbled and the Empire took over, she became a brutal leader, firming up the Hapan armed forces to keep the Imperials at bay. The Hapan worlds have since enjoyed a measure of prosperity, and Ta'a has been reduced to keeping the various factions from killing each other's heirs in attempts to gain the throne. She pretended to agree to her son Isolder's proposed marriage to Princess Leia, but she was secretly against it, feeling that Leia would bring nothing but the downfall of the Hapan government. She arranged for an assassination attempt on Leia's life, but it failed. Isolder, upon hearing of this, also accused her of killing his former betrothed, Elliar, and his older brother. Ta'a Chume eventually backed off, and let Isolder marry the Dathomirian "princess" Teneniel Djo. When Tenel Ka was born, Ta'a Chume began doting on the child, in hopes that she could twist the child into a "proper" Hapes Queen. In this effort, however, she failed, and Tenel Ka became a full Jedi. Ta'a Chume, it was later revealed, had something to do with the attempt by a group of Bartokk assassins to kill Tenel Ka, and she was forced to step down as Queen Mother and relinquish the throne to Teneniel Djo. Her abdication, though final, did not prevent her from keeping a hand in the dealings of the royal family. After the Yuuzhan Vong invaded the galaxy, and after the destruction of a portion of the Consortium Navy at the Battle of Fondor, Ta'a Chume even condoned several assassination attempts on Isolder and Teneniel Djo. However, the opening of Hapes to war refugees was too much for her to take. With the help of her aide Trisdin, Ta'a Chume began searching for a young woman to replace Teneniel Djo - a young woman she could mold in her own image. Her first attempt to locate such a woman focused on Jaina Solo, shortly after the Jedi lost her brother Anakin to the Yuuzhan Vong. After arranging for the murder of her daugther-in-law, Ta'a Chume quickly ordered new leadership be instated for Hapes, blaming the murder on the Ni'Korish. Her plans failed when Tenel Ka agreed to take her mother's position, a right which was hers to exercise. Despite her position as former Queen Mother, Ta'a Chume was arrested and charged with the murder to Teneniel Djo. (CPL, EGC, JE, DJ)

Taadus, Grenvil
this man served as an Imperial medical corpsman and combat surgeon on Bakura, during the rule of Governor Wilek Nereus. Taadus did not embrace the Empire, remaining as neutral as he could during the Galactic Civil War. During the Bakura Incident, it was Taadus who tried to keep Dev Sibwarra alive after his escape from the Ssi-ruuk. Unfotunately, Sibwarra's injuries were too grave to survive. Taadus later accompanied Petr Thanas in embracing the fledgling New Republic, and eventually served as a medical officer aboard the medical frigate Mercy. (TBSB)

Taal
this was the title given to the single, neutral leader of the four Aramandi akia. The Taal was chosen by an ancient process set forth by the Eeronon, and held the office until death. Among the powers given to the Taal was the command of the Taler armed forces. (AE, FBS)

Taal, Philo
this young man was the older brother of Reglis Taal. Philo was hunted down and killed by two bounty hunters, Krestock and Raxine, even though there was never a bounty placed on his head. Reglis eventually hunted Krestock and Raxine down and executed them for their parts in Philo's death. (GG10)

Taal, Reglis
this man turned into a bounty hunter after his older brother, Philo, was shot and killed by Krestock and Raxine. Both believed that Philo was wanted, but there was never an official bounty posted for his capture. Reglis was just nineteen at the time, and hunted both of them down and executed them for their part in Philo's Death. Taal later documented his life in the autobiography, Endings and Beginnings: An Autobiography. (GG10)

Taal's Residence
this was the primary residence of the Aramandi Taal, and was located in the capital city of Talerakia on Aram. It also served as the political center of the Aramand Cluster. (FBS)

Taal's River
this was the name given to the river which flowed through the city of Talerakia and emptied into the Bay of Eeronon, on the planet Aram. (FBS)

Taan
this female Yuuzhan Vong was a member of the Shamed Ones caste, and was part of the slave crew aboard the Stalking Moon. It was Taan who revealed to Corran Horn that the Shamed Ones believed the Jedi Knights would be their salvation. She later helped the Jedi gain control of the scoutship by communicating with Yuuzhan Vong commanders, claiming that the Stalking Moon had suffered a failure during hyperspace reversion, and that much of the command crew was injured or killed. (EVR)

Taan Yun-forqana zhoi
this was the rallying cry of the Yuuzhan Vong priests. (DW)

Taan, Cather
this stocky man owned and operated Cather Taan's Gun Shop, in the Storrd Township of the planet Seregar. The only decent arms dealer in the area, Taan was known for his knowledge of weapons and his stoic demeanor. He never bargained or traded, standing firm on his prices. His repair work was first-rate, another indication that his prices were fair, if not a bit higher than normal. (ND)

Taanab
the natives of this planet aided by Lando Calrissian in turning away a group of raiding Norulac pirates. Taanab had one moon. The Empire had used Taanab as a major food production facility. Note that X-Wing Rogue Squadron: Requiem for a Rogue names this planet as Taanad. (ROTJ, SWJ5, XWRR)

Taanab Exercise
this training exercise was designed by Luke Skywalker to train his new Jedi Knights. It involved trying to determine what the correct course of action would be in averting a flood that threatened a group of villagers. The students were required to investigate the available data and decide how best to avoid a disaster. Among the facts presented was the sudden appearance of off-world speculators who planned to sell homes on the floodplain to Alderaanian survivors. The villagers were actually building in the most dangerous area of the floodplain. (DTO)

Taanab Operation
this battle was aprt of Grand Admiral Thrawn's plans to unsettle the fledgling New Republic, some five years after the Battle of Endor. As part of the Taanab Operation, Thrawn dispatched the Bellicose to harass the planet Taanab in the wake of the Battle of Sluis Van. In order to ensure pinpoint accuracy and coordination among the Imperial forces, Thrawn planned on using the skills of the Dark Jedi Joruus C'baoth to coordinate the battles plans. However, C'baoth went out on his own and used a Force technique to link all the gunners' minds to his own. He then was able to control the entire firing plan, and used the Imperial forces to his own ends. Thrawn relieved him from the operation when he found out about C'baoth's maneuver, allowing the Dark Jedi to return to Jomark and await the arrival of Luke Skywalker. (DFR)

Taanab Sunrise
this New Republic warship was badly damaged during the Battle of Garqi, during the Yuuzhan Vong invasion of the galaxy. It was saved when the Imperial Remnant, under the command of Admiral Pellaeon, intervened in the battle in support of the Republic. The Red Harvest placed itself between the Yuuzhan Vong force and the Taanab Sunrise, absorbing damage while allowing the Taanab Sunrise to escape. (DTR)

Taanab Yellow Aces Squadron
this all-volunteer starfighter squadron, made up of A-Wings and E-Wings painted yellow with angular black stripes, joined the New Republic forces which massed at Borleias in the wake of the Battle of Coruscant.

Tabory, Evlyn
this young girl, the daughter of Rosemari Tabory and the niece of Jorad Pressor, was about ten years old when a mission to locate the remains of the Outbound Flight Project actually found the ships, some fifty years after the mission was destroyed. Evlyn was distinguished by her auburn hair and bright blue eyes, as well as her precocious nature. Pressor knew that there was something unusual about the girl, although he couldn't quite put his finger on it. When the Chiss-led mission to locate Outbound Flight arrived on the ships, he used her to lure their unexpected visitors into turbolifts, where he trapped them while trying to figure out what to do with them. Jorad knew the Evlyn was gifted, and believed that she had some sensitivity to the Force. He feared that this knowledge would leak out to the rest of the survivors, but also knew that it couldn't be kept a secret forever. When Bearsh and his companions revealed themselves to be Vagaari pirates, Evlyn and her mother and uncle were trapped in a conference room with Dean Jinzler and Aristocra Formbi when Bearsh released three wolvkils to keep them from escaping. Jinzler remembered that the Outbound Flight Colony's comlinks were equipped with a special communication frequency that could cut through jamming, and asked Evlyn to use her nacent powers to recover one from a fallen Peacekeeper. Evlyn was too scared to respond, and Pressor immediately forbade. Jinzler, however, convinced Pressor and Rosemari to allow Evlyn to make the attempt. She concentrated hard, and was able to move the comlink into a position for Jinzler to grab it. After freeing themselves, Evlyn found herself under the protection of Mara Jade Skywalker during their attempt to defeat the Vagaari. After the Vagaari threat was eliminated, Evlyn and her mother agreed to accompany the Outbound Flight Colony to Nirauan, staying as far away from the New Republic as they could. (SQ)

Tabory, Rosemari
this woman, the sister of Jorad Pressor, was one of the Instructors who worked on the Managing Council of the survivors of the Outbound Flight Project, during the years leading up to the Yuuzhan Vong invasion of the galaxy. She was distinguished by her auburn hair, a trait she shared with her duaghter, Evlyn. Since she was born after the Devastation, Rosemari was considered a member of the Colonists, and often represented them at meetings of the Managing Council. After the Vagaari threat was eliminated, Rosemari and Evlyn agreed to accompany the Outbound Flight Colony to Nirauan, staying as far away from the New Republic as they could. (SQ)

T'achak signed on as a repulsor engineer, working on the various shuttles and ground vehicles maintained in the ship's holds. He was well-trained for the role, having worked as a lead engineer Incom and test-driver for the likes of Ubrikkian, Aratech, Ikas-Adno, and even Mobquet. When T'achak decided to join the New Republic, his commanding officer was unable to curb T'achak's desire to ddrive everything to its limits. Thus, he was placed on the FarStar in an effort to place where he could do the least amount of damage. (DARK, KR)

Tachi, Siri
this young girl was a Jedi trainee, and a contemporary of Obi-Wan Kenobi shortly after he was chosen to be Qui-Gon Jinn's padawan. She was actually two years younger than Obi-Wan, but her skills with the Force and in lightsaber combat moved her forward in her class to Obi-Wan's level. She was considered to be quite beautiful by the male students of the time, although she chosen to wear a boyish haircut and clothing to mask her looks. Her blue seemed to darken or lighten dependning on her feelings. Siri found that she hated Obi-Wan after he had forsaken the Jedi to become involved in the Melida/Daan civil war. After the destruction of Xanatos, she was chosen by Adi Gallia to be a padawan, and they were assigned by Master Yoda to accompany Qui-Gon and Obi-Wan to Kegan to witness first-hand how a master and an apprentice worked together. Despite her skill and grace, Siri was impatient to move forward in her training, and often bristled in the presence of Obi-Wan's own patience. They were captured and held by the Keganites in the Learning Circle, in an effort to keep the Jedi from taking O-Lana back to Coruscant for training. The two quickly found a way to work together, and Siri learned more from Obi-Wan than she thought she could have. Eventually, they escaped the Keganites and helped bring Kegan into the galactic community. Later, during a mission to the Kessel Run, Siri and Adi Gallia had an intense argument, and Siri chose to leave the Jedi Order. Obi-Wan later discovered that Siri's split with the Jedi had been part of a far-reaching plan to infiltrate the slave ring of Krayn. In the intervening years, she dropped her given name and was known by the pseudonym Zora. After returning to the Jedi Order, Siri and Obi-Wan found themselves paired with their Masters on several missions. During the mission to protect Talesan Fry, Siri and Obi-Wan realized that they had fallen in love with each other. Knowing that attachment was forbidden among the Jedi, they struggled to resolve their feelings and their allegiance to the Jedi Order. Ultimately, both agreed to bury their feelings and never think of each other in anything other than a professional light. About three years after the Battle of Naboo, she joined forces with the pirate Krayn and earned his trust. She was unable to help Anakin Skywalker when he was captured by Krayn, but kept an eye on him until both of the were captured. With the help of the slavegirl Berri, they escaped and met with Aga Culpa and Nor Fik, arranging with both beings to oppose Krayn and allow the Jedi to destroy his organization. After the successful slave revolt, and following Anakin's killing of Krayn, Siri returned with the two Jedi to Coruscant. The experience with the slavers left Siri with a rebellious streak, which she displayed upon being named a Jedi Knight by cutting her hair short and wearing a leather unisuit. She eventually took Ferus Olin as her Padawan learner, and refused to take another Padawan after Ferus voluntarily left the Order, after the death of Darra Thel-Tanis. Just prior to the Clone Wars, Siri was dispatched with Garen Muln on a mission to the Xanlanner System. While en route, they discovered Obi-Wan's distress signal from TY44, and helped him reach Vanqor to rescue his apprentice, Anakin Skywalker. In the wake of the Battle of Geonosis, Siri was dispatched to the planet Kamino. The starship Slave I had been sighted there, and the Jedi Council wanted Jango Fett brought in for questioning. She discovered that the ship had been piloted back to Kamino by Jango's son, Boba, but she was too late to intercept him. Later, at the height of the Clone Wars, Siri was again teamed with Obi-Wan and Anakin, this time traveling to Genian with Padme' Amidala to negotiate for a codebreaking device created by Talesan Fry. After acquiring the device and returning to Azure, the Jedi found themselves under a Separatist attack. Magus himself had joined the Separatists, and tried to kill Talesan. Siri found herself protecting Padme', but had to disable Magus' ship to do it. In a bold move, Siri jumped onto Magus' fighter and fought her way in. Although she disabled Magus, she was shot in the chest. Shortly after Oibi-Wan pulled her from the ship, Siri died of her injuries. Before dying, though, she gave Obi-Wan a crystal she had carried with her as a Padawan, so that her memory could live on in him. (CT, FFT, SWDB, JQ, JQ1, BF1, JQ7, SOJ)

Tachyon Flier
this battered YV-888 light freighter was discovered by Lowbacca in the hold of the Baanu Rass, and the Jedi team dispatched to the worldship hoped to use it to escape from the Yuuzhan Vong, once they had eliminated the voxyn queen. After Raynar Thul was injured by a voxyn, he was placed aboard the Tachyon Flier in preparation for the group's escape. However, the ship was commandeered by Welk and Lomi Plo, who jettisoned Lowbacca before takeoff. However, they were unaware that Raynar Thul was still inside. As they blasted into space, the Tachyon Flier was picked up by Yuuzhan Vong sensors, and was almost immediately attacked. In no time, the ship's shields gave out, and the Tachyon Flier was destroyed. All aboard the ship died in the blast. (SBS, NJOSB)

Tac-Spec Footman
this series of personal service droids was produced several centuries before the Clone Wars, but was widely considered one of the most loyal and deadly types of droids ever produced. The Tac-Spec Footman's primary programming centered on loyalty to its owner, which it backed up with the ability to assassinate almost any being who posed a threat to its master. The kill ratio of the Tac-Spec Footman was virtually unparalleled among other droids, let alone among assassins in general. The entire run of production was quite small, and each droid was produced at a high cost to its buyer, but the cost was more than offset by the loyalty and protection it offered. (YDR)

Tacto
this was one of the two major cities, along with Aubendo, found on the planet Radnor. Together, they were considered the Twin Cities. Some five years after the Battle of Naboo, Tacto was also known as the Clear Sector, when a plague was unleashed in the city of Aubendo. The two cities were isolated from each other, in order to minimize the spread of the plague. After it was discovered that the Avoni were using the plague to hide their plans for invasion, the natives of Tacto refused to assist in helping the survivors in Aubendo, preferring to remain in their homes and safeguard their posessions from Avoni threats.

Tae-Jitsu
this was a form of martial art practiced by a small number of beings during the last decades of the Old Republic. It was considered to be generally ineffective, and more bluster than martial art. (TAE)

Tafanda Bay
a floating city like many others on Ithor, the Tafanda Bay was a self-contained ecosystem, mimicking the planet's environment while providing many technological necessities. The Tafanda Bay was one of the few Sky Yards-class herdships that were bound to planetary duty on Ithor, because much of its ecosystem was external rather than contained beneath transparisteel domes. It was commanded by an Ithorian named Momaw Nadon until a passing Imperial Star Destroyer threatened to destroy the planet if Nadon didn't cooperate. Nadon It has been the flagship of the Ithorian Grand Fleet for a number of years. Following the destruction of the Empire after the Battle of Endor, Momaw Nadon returned to take his place as the leader of Tafanda Bay. In the wake of the Yuuzhan Vong invasion of the galaxy, and their destruction of the planet Ithor, the Tafanda Bay was one of the few refuges where Ithorians could live. (SCRE, DA, SWSB, EGV, GMR4)

this New Republic pilot was among those who drew reconnaissance duty during the Yevethan Purge. He was chosen to fly his X-Wing, the Jennie Lee, in a flash pass over N'zoth. The New Republic desparately needed information on the Yevethan defenses, and ordered reconnaissance of the 13 major Yevethan worlds. Taggar managed to gather a large amount of data on the planet before being overtaken by the Yevethan warship Beauty of Yevetha. Rather than be captured or betray the Republic, Rone programmed his X-Wing to self-destruct as it was drawn into the warship's hangar bay. His death, and the destruction of his ship, caused a great deal of damage to the Beauty of Yevetha and allowed the Republic to receive his reconnaissance data. (SOL)

Tagge, Cassio
this Imperial General was part of Tarkin's support staff, serving as the tactician in charge of the first Death Star's defenses. Tagge was also in command of the Army forces deployed on the battle station. He was worried about the growth of the Rebellion and its possession of the plans to the first Death Star, for he had discovered the flawed exhaust port an knew its significance. However, he lacked the personality and courage to speak out about it. He was described as slimy and noisome. Tagge was later killed when the Alliance was able to destroy the first Death Star. Tagge was portrayed by Don Henderson in Star Wars: Episode IV - A new Hope. (SW, SWN, MTS, DSTC, GORW)

Tagge, Domina
this woman, a member of the wealthy Tagge family, was shipped off to the planet Monastery to join the Order of the Sacred Circle, in an effort to preserve her innocence. Sister Domina eventually became a priestess of the Order, and was known for her leadership of the sisterhood on Monastery. Shortly after the Battle of Yavin, she found herself in the midst of political intrigue as the Order's leaders decide that they were ready to side with either the Empire or the Alliance in the Galactic Civil War. At the same time, her brother Ulric traveled to Monastery to talk her into allying herself with Vader in order to avenge the death of their brother Orman at the hands of Luke Skywalker. In a devlish scheme, requested that Skywalker serve as the Alliance's representative to Monastery, during the negotiations with the Empire. Of course, the Empire's representative was none other than Darth Vader himself. Luke, smitten with Domina's beauty, was unaware that Domina had already allied herself with Vader. She and vader manipulated the members of the Order of the Sacred Circle to revoke the power of the Circle of Elders and name her High Priestess. Her first order was to have Luke killed and the Alliance destroyed, ostensibly as threats to the great circle of life. It was decided that Skywalker and Vader should duel to the death in the Crystal Valley; Domina had manipulated them both into a position which would result in both their deaths, avenging the Tagge family once and for all. Howeer, her plans were thwarted by both Vader and Skywalker, and Domina was forced to relinquish her position as High Priestess. She allowed the Order of the Sacred Circle to ally itself with the Alliance, but she never forgave Skywalker for killing her brother. Later, Domina tried to take control of the universe by unleashing the Crimson Forever. She had a team infiltrate the Red Nebula and steal one of the huge gemstones that protected it. She then placed it aboard a Star Destroyer and set it adrift in Alliance-controlled space. She hoped that the Alliance would bring the gemstone out of the ship, thereby affecting countless billions of beings before anything could be done to stop the disease. Her plans failed when Chewbacca revealed to Leia Organa and Lando Calrissian what the gemstones really were, prompting a mission to return the gemstone to the Red Nebula. Leia abandoned Domina Tagge on the fringes of the Red Nebula, after obtaining the second crystal. (LTA2, MC35, MC36, MC37, MC50)

Tagge, Orman
this Imperial Baron was the older brother of Ulric Tagge, the Imperial officer killed aboard the first Death Star. Orman Tagge was, at one time, the leader of the Corporate Sector Authority, and helped gain complete independence from the Empire. Of course, the CSA was required to funnel credits and resources to the Imperial war machine for little to no profit. Orman was blinded by Darth Vader, and used a cyborg vision system to see. He was skilled in the use of a lightsaber, although it was not known if he was ever a Jedi Knight. Much of his lightsaber training was geared toward revenge, for Orman wanted nothing more than to defeat Vader in combat in return for his lost eyesight. He masterminded a plot to reveal the location of the Alliance's bases in the wake of the Battle of Yavin, as part of a powerplay to discredit Vader in the Emperor's eyes. Under the pretense of mining spice near Yavin, Tagge took a family cruiser and landed on one of Yavin's remote moons. There, he established a giant space station in the very heart of Yavin's atmosphere. Using sophisiticated turbines, the station created tunnels through the swirling gases, allowing TIE Fighters to travel to and from the station. These TIE Fighters then launched a series of attacks on the Alliance's base on Yavin 4, hitting swiftly and then disappearing. The existence of this space stationwas discovered by Luke Skywalker, who managed to capture one of the modules used on TIE Fighters to create smaller tunnels when in communication with the station. Skywalker managed to destroy the station, but Orman Tagge ordered a retreat as soon as Skywalker's mission became clear. His main crew made it back to his personal ship, which then followed Skywalker out of Yavin's atmosphere. Tagge vowed revenge against Skywalker as well, for foiling his plans to win the Emperor's favor. The failure at Yavin cast all of Tagge's Imperial contracts in doubt, and he was forced to review every project he was handling and report back to the Emperor personally. Ormanhoped that the Omega Frost device, developed by his brother Silas, would save the Tagge name. He planned to use it within the asteroids separating Yavin from Junction, cutting off a major supply route. He believed himself prepared when Skywalker once again tried to foils his plans. However, in a lightsaber battle with the youngster, Tagge nearly lost his life. Luke was able to destroy Orman's cybernetic vision unit, leaving him completely blind. Luke escaped, and Orman when into a state of shock over the fact that Luke had allowed him to live. Unfortunately for the Tagge family, the trap they had laid at Junction backfired. The Alliance fleet they hoped to destroy discovered the plans for the Omega Frost, and fired on the Baron's personal starship. In minutes, the ship suffered catastrophic damage and exploded. Orman and Silas, however, survived the blast in a sealed chamber, which was recovered by Darth Vader. Vader kept the Tagge brothers in suspended animation, for his own later use. Orman, however, overcame the suspension and managed to escape by stowing away aboard the Millennium Falcon. He managed to reach the surface of Monastery, hoping to make contact with his sister, Domina. Unfortunately, Orman was intercepted by Darth Vader once again, who was on Monastery at Domina's bidding. Vader forced Orman to meet Luke Skywalker in combat, although Orman's appearance was altered by the Force. Luke fully believed he was fighting Vader, but his killing blow disintegrated the illusion. Orman died from the injury, as Vader's final "punishment" for his treachery. (MC25, MC26, MC30, MC33, MC34, MC36, MC37, NEGW)

Tagge, Sanya
this woman was a Baroness in the Tagge family during the last decades of the Old Republic. Baroness Tagge, by her leadership of the Tagge family, was in control of the House of Tagge during the years leading up to the Clone Wars. She pledged the support and resources of TaggeCo to Chancellor Palpatine, during the wave of unrest which followed the secession of many worlds from the Republic. (HNN4)

Tagge, Silas
this man, the middle brother of the Tagge family, was one of the many scientific minds behind the technologies produced by House of Tagge. A balding man with jet-black hair worn long where it still grew, Silas was a man who believed whole-hearted in the advances of science. He refused to eat real meat, instead favoring the instant nutrition and simplicity of food pastes. Among Silas' most interesting inventions was the Omega Frost device, which was successfully tested in the deserts of Tatooine. Silas lacked his older brother's need for vengeance, and chose to be pragmatic about things such as the Alliance. However, when Luke Skywalker managed to disable one of the Omega Frost generating devices in the asteroid belt near Junction, Silas saw his grandest invention suddenly fail. His mind began to crack, and he could not longer operate on his own. He retreated into the medical facility aboard the Tagge ship, hoping to rouse his brother and get him working on solving the problem. However, the Alliance ships they had planned to destroy were free to reach Junction, and took a slight detour to eliminate the Tagge threat. In minutes, the combined firepower of the meager Alliance fleet destroyed the Tagge ship, killing all aboard. Silas and Orman, however, survived the blast in a sealed chamber, which was recovered by Darth Vader. Vader kept the Tagge brothers in suspended animation, for his own later use. (MC31, MC32, MC33, MC34)

Tagge, Ulric
this man, the younger brother of Baron Orman Tagge, was a General in the Imperial armed forces during the height of the Galactic Civil War. While he hated the fact that Orman continued to launch crazy schemes in an effort to further the family fortunes, Ulric understood that he had more to gain if the Tagge family could become more valuable to the Emperor. To this end, Ulric often manipulated military contracts in order to further the Tagge family's businesses, and paved the way for new Tagge technology to be introduced. Ulric found himself named Baron of the Tagge family estate when both of his older siblings, brothers Orman and Silas, were killed in the Omega Frost debacle at Junction. However, Ulric was confronted by Darth Vader shortly afterward, who revealed that he had recovered the bodies of Orman and Silas. Using their reanimation as a pressure point, Vader forced Ulric to agree to his own plans, not those of the Tagge family. (MC31, MC34)

During the years leading up to the Battle of Naboo, TaggeCo was one of the many corporations that was allied with the Trade Federation. However, in the wake of the battle and the Federation's reprimandation, TaggeCo severed all ties to the Federation, claiming that it could no longer trust the Federation's leadership. TaggeCo was one of the original Signatory Sponsors of the Corporate Sector Authority. During the Clone Wars, TaggeCo remained neutral, but came to side with the Empire during the Galactic Civil War after several prominent TaggeCo executives were given positions as Imperial officers. With the Emperor's death at the Battle of Endor, TaggeCo agreed to work closely with the New Republic, ensuring that its corporate revenues would continue to flow in. (EGV, CSA, HNN4, NEGW)

Tahl
this Jedi Master was a native of the planet Noori, and was a contemporary of Qui-Gon Jinn when she was sent to Melida/Daan to mediate the civil war that had engulfed the planet. Tahl had been brought to the Jedi Temple on Coruscant when she was a six-year-old with a sharp tongue and a way of reading people's secrets, and had trained with Qui-Gon. Both reached the level of Jedi Knight at about the same time, discovering their bond after a chance meeting on Zekulae. She was known among the Jedi for her diplomatic skills and her patience with others, although she never took a padawan. Tahl was wounded and captured by the Melida shortly after the Twenty-Second Battle of Zehava, when she was dispatched to Melida/Daan to help negotiate a peace treaty. Qui-Gon and his padawan, Obi-Wan Kenobi, were dispatched to locate her, but they were captured by Wehutti and the Melida as well. They were rescued by members of The Young, who led them to Tahl's severely wounded body. Qui-Gon and Obi-Wan managed to rescue Tahl, and got her prompt medical attention off-planet. However, as a result of the injuries she suffered at the hands of the Melida, Tahl was rendered blind. Her connection with the Force remained strong, though, and she found she could still "see" with its help. In the wake of the Melida-Daan incident, Tahl chose not to take on a Padawan learner, and traveled to Centax 2 to look into Clee Rhara's starfighter training facility. After the sabotage was linked to Vox Chun, Tahl returned to Coruscant and took Bant Eerin as her Padawan. When Ewane was killed on New Apsolon, Tahl demanded to be sent to the planet to discover the truth. She managed to infiltrate the Absolutes, but had to break off all contact with Coruscant in order to maintain her cover. When Qui-Gon traveled to the planet to help her, she initially chafed at his intrusion. However, her love for him overcame her anger, and she accepted his help. While searching for the Absolutes' base of power, Tahl pledged her life to Qui-Gon when he told her of his devotion to her. Unfortunately, her cover had been blow, and Tahl was forced to flee. She was pursued and captured by Balog's forces, who believed that she had a list of those Workers who were informants to the Absolutes. Tahl did not have the list, but told Balog otherwise so that he would keep her alive. Qui-Gon managed to rescue her, but she was too weak to continue living. Balog had caused severe damage to her body with his interrogation drugs, and Tahl was barely able to escape from his base. After Qui-Gon brought her to Manex's residence, doctors struggled to help her, but they were unable to save her. Tahl died knowing that Qui-Gon loved her with all his heart. (DOD, UP, JAD, TTB, DOH)

Tai
this Nagai male, whose full name was Taikotelai Akikoma, was captured by Leia Organa and four Zeltrons - Rahuhl, Marruc, Jahn, and Bahb - on the planet Trenwyth, shortly after the Nagai decimated its population. He had been the victim of torture at the hands of an unknown being, and was terrified when captured by them. He whined the entire time that the Alliance team was waiting for a rescue ship, since their own vessel was damaged in the fighting for Trenwyth. He seemed to develop an emotional attachment to Leia during his captivity, as she was the only member of the group to show him any compassion. It was later discovered that Tai was a wing leader in the Nagai Navy. When he returned to Nagi, Tai was killed by his commanding officer, Den Siva, for accepting the help of Organa and the Zeltrons. (LTA6, MC103, GMR1)

Tail Squadron
this was the name used by Jaina Solo to identify Tesar Sebatyne and his hatchmates, Krasov and Bela Hara, after the three Barabels joined the Jedi Knights in fighting against the Yuuzhan Vong. While not technically a full squadron, Jaina felt it was better to give them callsigns to confuse the enemy. (SBS)

Tailchaser
this was one of the many false identities created by Cecil Noone and his band of thieves for the starship Asaari Wind, which they had stolen from Ritinki. (GMR1)

Tailfin Cantina
this cantina, located in the northwest quadrant of the Center Sphere sector of Bartyn's Landing, on the planet Lamaredd, was owned by Jerrahg. The locals frequented the Tailfin because it was a good place to get drunk and gamble in private. (GMR7)

Tailring
native to the planet Socorro, this desert-dwelling reptile resembled a small, winged dragon. Also known as sand dragons, tailrings lived near the underground water oases of the planet in small groups. Their skin was covered with black scales and patches of short fur, and the shed their annualy. Each molting produced a new knob of hard skin on their tails, which eventually formed a kind of rattle. Tailrings are attracted to shiny objects, and are considered excellent thieves. However, they are also considered a good-luck charm by Socorran pirates, who strive to find one in the desert. Tailrings bond almost instantly to a being they identify with, forming a lifelong bond. The pirates welcome their company because, for an unexplained reason, tailrings love to eat mynocks, and they will attack any mynocks attached to their owner's ship. (BSS)

Tainer, Doran
this was the name of the son, born to Kell Tainer and Tyria Sarkin several years after the defeat of Warlord Zsinj. He was somewhat sensitive to the Force, and his mother spent many years travelling the galaxy with him, in an effort to expand his - and her own - horizons. (EL1)

Tainer, Kell
a human male from the planet Sluis Van, Kell was one of the first pilots to serve in Wraith Squadron. His real last name was Doran, but after the death of Kissek Doran, his mother changed their name and tried to start again. She moved her family to Alderaan just before the Empire destroyed the planet, and only Kell was offplanet when the Death Star arrived. This series of actions galvanized his resolve to fight back against the Empire, and Kell joined the Alliance shortly after the Battle of Yavin. Kell served as a mechanic at the Sluis Van Shipyards, before they were destroyed during the struggle against Grand Admiral Thrawn. He then joined the New Republic and was a demolitions expert with Page's Commandos. Kell then demonstrated an ability to fly starfighters in simulation, and was given the chance to try the real thing. However, after he crashed a Z-95 Headhunter and an X-Wing in practice - claiming unresponsive controls each time - he was demoted from the pilot ranks. Wedge Antilles was impressed enough with his abilities, though, to offer him a spot with the Wraiths. When Kell realized that Wes Janson - the man who was forced to shoot down Kissek - was also part of the Wraiths, he balked. Wedge Antilles maneuvered him into staying with the Wraiths, however. Kell served as the Squadron's demolition's expert and it's backup mechanic. After the capture of the Night Caller, Kell fell in love with Tyria Sarkin. When the Wraiths were called upon to defend Talasea from an attack by Apwar Trigit, Kell worked hard to protect his fellow Wraiths. For his bravery and ingenuity, he was promoted to Lieutenant. His unusual tactics and skills also attracted the notice of Starfighter Command, and they awarded him the Kalidor Crescent. During the hunt for Warlord Zsinj, Tainer assumed the identity of Lieutenant Dissek, a member of the Hawk-bat Independent Space Force. After Zsinj was defeated, Kell and Tyria were married, and a son was born to them shortly afterward. Years later, as the fight against the Yuuzhan Vong progressed, Tainer continued to work as a Wraith Intelligence officer. He was part of the group which ended up on Borleias in the wake of the Second Battle of Coruscant. (WS, IF, EL1, GMR9)

Taire, Bufon
this well-muscled, dark-skinned man worked as the bartender at the Outlander Club, during the years leading up to the Battle of Geonosis. Many of his patrons believed that Taire watered down his drinks, but never confronted him about it because his prices were reasonable. His heavily-scarred face and mismatched eyes belied his rough-and-tumble career, a trait which earned him his role with Volven Roxe. (SWDB, SWI75)

Taisden
a New Republic Intelligence officer in charge of deciphering the Teljkon vagabond's transmissions, Taisdan served on the Glorious. He remained with Pakkpekatt's reduced fleet, trying to solve the mystery of Lando Calrissian's whereabouts after the vagabond jumped into hyperspace. (BTS, SOL)

The Alliance staged a raid on Iyuta, with the help of Reekeene's Roughnecks, and successfully knocked out the communications center, shortly after the Battle of Yavin. The Empire rebuilt the center, in the hopes of backtracking the Alliance team and locating their base. (SWCP)

Takashi, Rumo

Takeel
this burned-out Snivvian mercenary was known in Mos Eisley as a spice-addicted double-crosser. He turned many individuals over to the Empire. Takeel was the twin brother of Zutton, and was the first of the pair to speak and walk. He was forced to undergo personality reprogramming in order to avoid any genetic problems, but the operations left him with little remaining to his own mind. He later worked for Jabba the Hutt as a small-time bounty hunter, and was ordered to recover the missing accounting droid CZ-3. Takeel caught up with the droid, only to have Tols Vengra confront him. The Jenet claimed that the droid was the property of Opun Mcgrrrr. Unfortunately for both Takeel and the Jenet, Zutton blasted the droid to pieces. (CCG, MTSE, SWJ11)

Takel, Griff
this Imperial governor was placed in charge of the political situation on Esseles when Palpatine instituted the New Order. He was often involved in military and political struggles with the Hall President Ralle, who wanted the Esselian militia to have more latitude to control the planet, without Imperial interference. (SWJ7, SWJ8, SWJ9)

Takel, Miltin
this man was one of the Empire's twelve Grand Admirals. Takel was known as a brilliant strategist, and he was solely responsible for the Imperial victory at the Siege of Trasemene. Unknown to most of his peers, Takel was also addicted to glitterstim. He used the powerful stimulant to help him "foresee" the events of a battle, which gave his strategies a better chance of succeeding. Takel was aboard the second Death Star during the Battle of Endor, and was deep in the throes of a glitterstim high when the Alliance began its assault. He immediately felt the anxiety of Grand Admiral Declann and the death of Emperor Palpatine, and fled the space station before it was destroyed. When the Imperials regrouped at Kessel, Takel's heightened senses picked up a strange connection to the being chosen to succeed Palpatine, Trioculus. However, Takel went too far in questioning Trioculus' proposed tactics, and Trioculus had Takel executed for his insubordination. (SESB, ECH, SWI66)

Takhaff Uul
this young Yuuzhan Vong priest was one of the devotees of Yun-Yuuzhan. Shortly after the Battle of Coruscant, Takhaff Uul approached the Warmaster, Tsavong Lah, with the interpretation of a dream he had. The dream was believed to have come from Yun-Yuuzhan himself, and indicated that the god was angry for not receiving a portion of the glory which was coming from the conquest of the galaxy. For this reason, the radank claw which Warmaster Lah had grafted to his own arm was failing to bond with the rest of his body. The Warmaster was already questioning the judgement of Ghithra Dal, and was tracking the actions of Dal and Uul. In an effort to prove that no one could stand against him, Tsavong Lah let loose a herd of wild rancors aboard the Shaper transport ship Fu'ulanh, killing Ghithra Dal and all his compatriots, including Takhaff Uul. (EL1, EL2)

Takill, Kirk

Takkar, Anlys
this woman was married to Moff Derran Takkar. Equally devious and beautiful, Anlys was the perfect match for Derran's ruthless nature. After being stranded on Dolis 3 when the Imperial Remnant signed a peace accord with the New Republic, Derran and Anlys decided to try and disrupt the wedding of Luke Skywalker and Mara Jade. They hoped to hold the ceremony hostage while exacting a form of revenge on the Republic. When Derran's brute-force methods failed to get them anywhere on Coruscant, Anlys tried to get her hands on the wedding dress designed for Mara, in an effort to steal it and put a halt to the ceremony. She intercepted Jari'kyn and tried to steal the dress, but Banner Sumptor decided that her methods did not warrant his loyalty. Sumptor shot Anlys' escort, allowing Jari'kyn time to hit Anlys over the head and render her unconscious. Anlys was later imprisoned to await trial. (U)

Takkar, Derran
this man was the Imperial Moff of Dolis 3, a position he attained shortly before the Battle of Endor. He remained staunchly loyal to the Empire, something that was easy to do given Dolis 3's remote location from Coruscant. Takkar and his wife, Anlys, vowed to exact revenge on the New Republic, but were unable to determine the correct point in time to strike. Their opportunity came when it was announced that Luke Skywalker was going to marry Mara Jade. Takkar gathered his former officers - Banner Sumptor, Chik Apla, Chala Venan, and Iry Danta - and set off for Coruscant. There, they tried to disrupt the wedding in any way possible. Several plans failed, until Anlys suggested stealing Mara's wedding dress and putting a halt to the ceremony. This plan nearly succeeded, but Banner Sumptor disabled Anlys's escort, and Anlys was knocked unconscious by Jari'kyn. Derran realized that he had to take matters into his own hands, and infiltrated the wedding disguised as an Ithorian diplomat. Into his costume he placed a datapad loaded with a virus which would wipe out New Republic communications stations throughout the galaxy. He threatened to download the virus into the Republic's computers, destroying communications and fragmenting the fledgling Republic. Derran was unaware that the New Republic had shielded Coruscant's computers from just this sort of sabotage years before, and the plan was ultimately doomed. However, Luke Skywalker did not use the Force to coerce Derran or prevent him from triggering the virus anyway, and Derran found himself unsure about the propaganda he had read on the Republic. Ultimately, Luke offered him a chance to join the New Republic on his own terms, and Derran agreed to try. (U)

Tal Anavere
this female Ho'Din was known to the people on Obroa-skai as an art dealer, a gambler, and a thief. Her love for art was the only love she has; she has no morals or respects for other beings. She ran the Sophistication art gallery, which dealt in works created by the dilletantes of Imperial society, although her background was in the artwork of pre-technology civilizations. Tal Anavere herself detested the art created by the talentless Imperials, but nonetheless managed to sell most of it. Her contacts within the Empire allowed her to surreptitiously gather useful information, which she later passed on to the Alliance. She also brewed an addictive tea, which she served in her gallery in order to keep the Imperials happy with her work. (CRO)

Tal Fraan
this young Yevethan Proctor obtained perjured pleas from beings captured during the Yevethan Purge. The pleas indicated that the Yevethans were transporting the prisoners on the warships that met the New Republic's Fifth Battle Group at Doornik-319. Tal Fraan had spent time with humans and other New Republic races, and knew that they would not fire on innocent prisoners. The ploy worked to perfection, as the Fifth Battle Group's K-Wing bombers held off from attacking the Yevethan ships, which opened fire and decimated the Republic's forces. Nil Spaar was not at all happy to learn that Tal Fraan had risked the Yevethan fleet in this way, but he was pleased with the results and kept Fraan as an advisor. When Tal Fraan continued to underestimate the New Republic, and the Black Nine shipyards were lost at Prildaz, Nil Spaar could no longer tolerate his young protcor. Nil Spaar sliced off Tall Fraan's head with a single swipe of his arm, and left the body for garbage rather than honor it with burial. (SOL, TT)

this Gotal Senator to the New Republic was in charge of the Senate Justice Council during the Yuuzhan Vong invasion of the galaxy. She oversaw the deposition of Senator Viqi Shesh, during the investigation of the events leading up to the debacle at the Battle of Fondor. When the Republic regrouped on Calamari, Senator Ranth was nominated as one of the candidates for the position of Chief of State. Many Senators worried that Ranth was not actually considering a true campaign, but was simply building up enough support so that she could withdraw at the last moment and sway the vote to another candidate in return for political favors. She maintained a good percentage of the vote, however, and was courted by both Fyor Rodan and Cal Omas in an effort to swing the vote. In the end, Ranth threw her support to Cal Omas. In return for her loyalty, Cal Omas promised Ranth a position on the High Council which oversaw the actions of the Jedi Knights. (JE, DW)

Talas
this dry, rocky planet, located in the Kamdon System, was a world which nonetheless had a kind of austere beauty to its appearance. Much of the planet was continually being reshaped by volcanic activity, but small continents made from tors and spires dotted the surface. The next planet in the system was a reddish-gold gas giant, which filled the horizon of Talas with blazing colors. The planet was purchased, some years before the Battle of Naboo, by the Quarren egg-mates, Tallet and Lekket. (HFAS)

Talas Piran
this hulking Locan was a slave on Hintivan II for many years, using only vibro-axes to fell the huge trees which grew on the planet. At some point, he managed to acquire enough credits to buy his own freedom. However, instead of setting out on his own, Talas Piran sold his abilities and experience with slaves to the Mytaranor Slaving Council. His knowledge of controlling slaves earned him several promotions, until he found himself as the chief slavemaster on the Council. His physical prowess earned him even more respect, and soon was named the leader of the Council. In order to heighten his position, Talas Piran often wielded the same vibro-axe he used on Hintivan II, but he was smart enough to realize that a dead or injured slave worth considerably less than a perfect specimen. (AIR)

Talasea
situated as the fourth world in the Morobe System, this planet was located near the Galactic Core. Wedge Antilles' Rogue Squadron was moved there after its training on Folor, as part of an attempt to dissuade the remnants of the Empire from trying to overtake Coruscant before the New Republic could retake it.

this huge, well-muscled Twi'lek was the first among the warriors sent to assess Wedge Antilles, when Rogue Squadron arrived to negotiate for kor ryll. He flew an X-ball Ugly into Kala'uun Starport and challenged Wedge to a duel, with the kor as the reward for the winner. When Wedge accepted the challenge, Tal'dira then challenged Koh'shak's truthfulness in his business dealings. Tal'dira accused Koh'shak of keeping all ryll profits for himself, and Koh'shak could not refute the claim. Tal'dira took control of the negotiations, and gave the kor ryll to Wedge as a gift, warrior to warrior. Tal'dira later delivered a squadron of Chir'daki starfighters to Rogue Squadron, to supplement the forces going up against the Bacta Cartel. When Nawara Ven was shot down in the Battle of Thyferra, his injuries forced him out of the cockpit. Tal'dira accepted Wedge's offer to join the Rogues, and continued the tradition of a Twi'lek in the squadron by serving as Rogue Five. However, his tenure with the Rogues was cut short during the hunt for Warlord Zsinj. In a bold move, Zsinj had his agents brainwash certain members of specific alien species in order to create a rift between the human and non-human races of the New Republic. This was known as Project Funeral,and Tal'dira was one of those beings brainwashed. When Galey gave him the code phrase "Wedge Antilles hops on one transparisteel leg," the implanted programming took over. He was compelled to kill Wedge, and got his chance over Jussafet 4. However, his sense of loyalty and honor cut in at the last moment, and he allowed himself to be shot down and killed by Corran Horn, rather kill his commanding officer. (KT, BW, SOC)

Taldot Sector

Talid
this race of nomadic humanoids was native to the planet Ando Prime. Their thick skin provided them with a measure of protection against the harsh, wintry weather of the planet. The Talid society was very open, and there was little concept of trade, bargaining, or commerce. If a Talid needed something, they simply took it whenever they found it. Because of this social trait, the settlers who came to Ando Prime believed that the Talids were simple thieves. The Talids were already slightly xenophobic, and the growing number of offworld miners gave then cause to retreat further. When the offworlders began encroaching on their lands, the Talids began to fight back, using their knowledge of the planet's environment to offset their primitive weapons. (GMR2)

Talien
this Yarkora gambler lived on Onadax during the height of the Yuuzhan Vong invasion of the galaxy. Han Solo beat Talien with a cubic sabacc once, much to the Yarkora's surprise.

Talking Bomb
this was the term used to describe the makeshift bombs that were constructed by the Ugnaughts of Cloud City, when they launched their rebellion against Imperial Captain Treece. Each of the twelve bombs built by the Ugnaughts was equipped with a droid brain, which powered up whenever a living being tried to approach the bomb. The droid brain was attached to a vocoder, and the droid began talking to the being nearest to its location, offering apparently sincere information on how to disarm it. As the Imperials discovered, however, this information actually armed the bomb and set it to explode. After Treece was removed from Cloud City, several black marketeers tried to sell these bombs, but their effectiveness was limited by the fact that many beings knew they were providing false information. (PH)

Tallaan benefited greatly from its location, being located at the intersection of the Shapani Bypass and the Giju Run. It is the home of one of the oldest shipyards in the galaxy, which was set up around the time of the Great Sith War. During the modern era, these shipyards were overrun by the Empire, and alien slaves were at first removed from their positions as laborers, After the formation of the Guild of Non-Human Skilled Laborers, aliens were allowed to maintain their jobs, and many were imported to perform the labor. A strong cell of Alliance support blossomed on Tallaan, but was never able to remove its Imperial yolk. The Empire officially noted Wilhuf Tarkin's death as a shuttle accident at the shipyards. (SWJ7, CRO, PGT)

this was one of the largest cities found on the planet Sucharme. The Trade Federation maintained a garrison in Tallaga, until it tried to force the natives of Sucharme to repay a debt. The garrison was shut down by the Federation, in an effort to eliminate any possible resistance from the armed forces of Sucharme. Unfortunately, many of the officers and soldiers escaped before the lockdown of the garrison was completed, and these insurgents led a successful resistance campaign against the Federation. (GCG)

Tallah Dynasty
this ancient dynasty had governed the planet Gala and its three tribes for many generations. The Tallah were the first rulers to unite the three tribes of the city, hills, and sea into a single people despite their deep-seated hatred of each other. However, over the years, the Tallah rulers became corrupt. King Cana of the Tallah was unable to prevent the more powerful families of Galacian culture from solidifying their own power bases, and the government became more distanced from the lower classes. After Cana's death, his wife Veda assumed control of the dynasty. Just over a decade before the Battle of Naboo, Queen Veda realized that the populace would not stand for the corruption of the dynasty any further, and opened up a general election to chose her successor. The elections were to have been mediated by Qui-Gon Jinn and Obi-Wan Kenobi, but they were hijacked to the planet Phindar by Paxxi Derida. The Tallah maintained a country estate, well away from the demands of the government in Galu. Veda often retired to the estate during her illness, but was unable to travel during her last days. Note that Jedi Apprentice: The Hidden Past calls this the "Beju-Tallah" dynasty. (HP, MOC)

this name was commonly given to Quarren males, and meant "adventurous". (GCG)

Tallet
this Quarren and and his egg-mate, Lekket, were once native to the city of Heurkea, on the planet Calamari, until a business dealing with Senator Tikkes exposed some of their illicit dealings with the Hutts. Tikkes, rather than have his own name smeared because of his association with them, exposed them as criminals and had the Old Republic police shut down their operation. Tallet and Lekket escaped, and were forced to eke out an existence on Talas. During their escape, the two Quarren noticed that a Jedi Knight was assisting the police, and vowed to gain a measure of revenge on the Jedi for ruining their lives. Tallet himself was injured in the escape, his head and shoulders bathed in toxic fuel when the Jedi deflected a blaster bolt into the fuel cell. Lekket brought him to Balmorra, and paid a group of Colicoid scientists to restore as much of his body as they could. Tallet and Lekket later hired Aurra Sing to hunt down and kill Tikkes and the Jedi, whom they later identified as the Dark Woman, shortly after the Battle of Naboo. (HFAS)

Tallon Roll
the starfighter combat maneuver was designed by Adar Tallon, to help pilots compensate if they overshoot their target. The attacking craft closes too quickly on its target, and overshoots it. The Tallon Roll can then be used, as the attacker first levels out, then pulls the nose of his ship upward in a tight spiral. The defender is then the ship which overshoots. The maneuver is often dangerous, as it can temporarily disorient the attacking pilot. (RASB)

Tallon Split
this theoretically simple maneuver was devised by Adar Tallon. In its simplicity, it requires split-second reactions and uncanny reflexes from two fighter pilots, and is especially dangerous to execute. The two pilots fly close to each other, approaching a capital ship. They need to be close enough to register on the capital ship's targetting computers as a single target. At very close range, the two fighters split apart. One continues on its strafing run, while the other is shot at by the capital ship's weapons, drawing fire from the first ship. The idea is that the ship on the strafing run has about five seconds of clear sailing until the capital ship's targetting computer can detect it as a second target. (MTS)

Tallon, Adar
a naval commander in the Old Republic, he was a masterful battle technician whose maneuvers were used by the Empire, and are still used by the New Republic. He was at his best when he worked with his friend, Jan Dodonna. Dodonna's strategies were often paired with Tallon's starship combat maneuvers to create incredibly effective battle plans. During the early stages of the Clone Wars, Tallon held the rank of Admiral, and often spent time speaking with new recruits about the realities of war. When the Empire grew to power, Tallon faked his own death rather than being conscripted into the Imperial Navy. He hid on the planet Tatooine, until a group of Rebels found his hiding place and convinced him to join the Alliance. (RASB, TM, RCHC)

His career as an Imperial servant was unremarkable, and it moved him from backwater world to backwater world. Talmont was quite full of his own self-importance, and hoped to escape the drudgery of Tatooine by capturing Jabba the Hutt and bringing down his criminal empire. He was appointed to the post by Tour Aryon after Orun Depp was executed by an assassin droid. This fact frightened Talmont to his core, and lived in fear the entire span of years in which he was Prefect. (GG7, TJP, MEAS, SWI65)

Talnar
this Alliance procurement officer was shot down by Imperial forces over Naalol, and was forced to crashland on the backwater world. The forty-five-year-old Talnar was known to his desire to work alone, which his superiors allowed only because of his skills. His ship, the Golden Jewel, was irreparably damaged in the crash, and Lieutenant Talnar was captured by the Oquan and held for ransom by Rel Acoi. A team of Alliance operatives was able to defeat the Oquan and rescue Talnar, before he could be turned over to the Empire. (GMR5, WOA36)

Its year lasts 219 local days. Taloraan hsa seven moons and a magnificent ring system, but it also has an intense magnetic field and suffers from atmospheric ionization. Thus, it has never been fully surveyed. It is located in the Expansion Region. The little exploration that has been done on Taloraan has indicated that, at certain levels within the clouds, habitation could be possible. In acutality, the planet harbors an abundance of life, including the fleft-wauf and sleft-chuffni. Humans have also recently settled the planet's upper atmosphere, living inside colossal island beasts. Taloraan is important because of the abundance of tibanna gas in its atmosphere, and it has been shown that Taloraan's tibanna gas is breathable at higher altitudes. (SWJ5, RSG)

It was simple to operate, requiring just a pilot to manage all systems. However, the ship had room for up to 25 passengers and 30 metric tons of cargo, making it the perfect ship for getting a group of warriors into battle.

He remained onboard the ship when Formbi and his motley team disembarked to enter Outbound Flight, and witnessed the landing of the Vagaari forces. He and his troops remained hidden until the Vagaari left the area, then entered the Outbound Flight to rescue Formbi and the others. Talshib's troops were able to seal off the pylons between Dreadnaughts, which were damaged when the Vagaari stole the D-Four Dreadnaught. This saved the lives of those beings still on Outbound Flight, sealing in their limited air supply. Despite being able to locate Formbi and Drask, Talshib was disgruntled by the fact that Dean Jinzler showed the Chiss how to get rid of the line creepers that had been planted in Outbound Flight by the Vagaari.

Tamo Lan
this Carosite served as Shroud Team's medic. A native of Carosi XII, Lan was schooled in medicine before deciding to join the Alliance after killing a Twi'lek who threatened one of his patients.

Lan served the Alliance on Baes Logia and at the Massassi base on Yavin 4 before joining Shroud Team, where he treated not only his fellow team members but the orphaned agents they brought in. He also became a sort of protector for the young Aqualish Gondara, the sister of his best friend Karlon, who was killed by Imperial forces on Bresnia. (SWJ10)

Tampasi
this was the name of the dense, living forest which covered the planet Zonama Sekot.

The shuttle was boarded, and its captain, Sreas, was killed in the firefight. The Tampion was captured and taken to N'zoth. The shuttle's escort, including Plat Mallar, was left alive to report the ambush to Leia Organa-Solo and the Republic. (SOL)

Tampson Consolidated, Incorporated
this mega-corporation was based on the planet Javis, in Tapani Sector, and was sponsored and totally controlled by House Mecetti.

this was the term used by the Korunnai to describe their particular form of punishment, known as "jungle justice", carried out against those Balawai who offended or otherwise harmed the Korunnai. As was customary, Balawai who were subjected to the tan pel'trokal were blindfolded and taken deep into the jungle. There, they were stripped of all their possessions, including clothing and supplies, and left to survive on their own. In this way, the Korunnai removed the fallability of the human being from the judgement of another being, leaving the jungle itself to decide one's fate. Very few Balawai ever returned alive. Because the Balawai controlled the daylight hours with their gunship patrols, the Korunnai chose to set loose their prisoners at night. (SHPT)

Tan Shilley
this attractive female Morganian owned and operated Shilley's cantina, located in the city of Gralleenya. Tan left her homeworld to become a travelling entertainer and dancer, but ended up on Questal. She established Shilley's just before the ardanium boom, and was able to profit during its height. She worked hard to keep her bar a neutral ground between law and order, and was privy to much of the underworld information the police force didn't know. This knowledge allowed her to assist a group of Alliance agents who went to Questal to rescue Tiree. She remembered Tiree coming into her bar, and suggested that he talk to Mosh Pelkan about gaining entrance to Moff Bandor's palace. (GCQ)

Tana
this dark-skinned female was a friend of Han Solo's. She ran Tana's Resort on Rion.

Tandgor Gem
this valuable gemstone was distinguished by the way it seemed to glow with a pulsating, orange light. Each elongated tandgor gem had eight sides. An urban legend surfced duringthe early years of the New Republic, telling the tale that Han Solo and Chewbacca once used a cargo of tandgor gems - which would have paid off his debt to Jabba the Hutt - to save an alien race from nightly visits by the angry spirits of their ancestors. The ancestors had tried to leave their planet to explore the galaxy, but their ship experienced problems and had to turn around. Those who remained behind weren't ready for such a swift return, and the ship lost its way in an evening fogbank, crashing with a mighty impact and killing all aboard. Each night from that point forward, the ghosts of the explorers returned in their gohstly starship to torment the living. Solo and Chewie used the tandgor gems as landing lights, which allowed the ghost ship to find its way to a safe landing, thereby allowing the ghosts of the explorers to find peace each night. (T17)

Tane, Ratri
a native of Coruscant, this man worked for the Techno Union during the years leading up to the onset of the Clone Wars. He worked in a group which was given very little information about what they were actually working on, but Ratri managed to discover the full set of plans. Realizing that his work could possibly lead to the destruction of the Old Republic, Ratri stole a wealth of project files and the only working prototype of his work and went into hiding. He took his family and fled to his wife's homeworld of Corellia, where he thought he might be safe. Corellia, at the time, was striving to remain neutral in the growing conflict between the Old Republic and the Separatists. However, the Techno Union discovered his defection and sent a group of mercenaries to recover the prototype at all costs. The Jedi Knights were called in to rescue Ratri before the mercenaries, led by Tendir Blue, managed to capture Tane. However, by the time they arrived, Tane had already been captured by Blue. Unknown to Blue, however, "Tane" was actually Nejaa Halcyon in disguise. The real Tane had already been whisked away to a safehouse to ensure the survival of he and his family. When the Jedi refused to cooperate, Blue shot "Tane" with his blaster and escaped, believing that he had killed the real Tane and recovered the prototypes he had been carrying. The ruse was necessary, because the Old Republic wanted the Techno Union to believe that the threat to the Separatists posed by Tane's defection had been eliminated. (SWI66)

The tangle gun fires a large, semi-flexible webbing which is created from naorstrachem mixed with a shrinking agent. The web begins to contract when it comes in contact with a warm surface, such as a living body. The webbing wraps around the target and tightens, trapping the target almost instantly. The problem with most tangle guns - and the Tangle Gun 7 was no exception - os that the webbing often contracted too much, despite efforts to modify the mixture. The target was often suffocated by the intense contraction of the webbing. (CFG)

Tangrene was a mountainous world of craggy peaks and deep canyons, and was virtually barren of vegetation and surface water. A race of sentients once lived on the planet, but the Empire enslaved them during the construction of its garrison there. The Moff in charge of the sector decided that the natives would be more of a liability than an asset, and exterminated them before they could pose any threat.

The Corporate Alliance's NR-N99 tank droids were large, circular automatons with a huge central wheel supported by four small outrigger wheels. This droid could roll into and out of battle with ease, and was equipped with a variety of weapons systems mounted on arms. Years later, the Empire used other forms of tank droids to protect the cloning facilities on Byss, following the Battle of Endor. (DE1, VD2, VD3)

The Tanquilla Beach station was founded by a team of outlaw techs which included Bequesh. A lumpy, cobbled-together station, Tanquilla Beach measured 900 meters in height was was manned by a crew of 1,200.

Tantive IV
a Corellian Corvette ("Blockade Runner") piloted by Captain Antilles, the Tantive IV was the diplomatic ship used by the Organa family of Alderaan, on their missions for the Galactic Senate during the final years of the Old Republic. Once painted blue to indicate its home port of Alderaan, the Tantive IV was later painted red to indicate its status as a consular ship, and under diplomatic immunity. This did not stop Darth Vader from chasing the ship down over Tatooine and boarding it, shortly before the Battle of Yavin. He was pursuing Princess Leia Organa, who he believed to be a supporter of the Alliance. At the time, Leia was using the Tantive IV to obtain the plans to the first Death Star from Toprawa, then fly to Tatooine to recruit Obi-Wan Kenobi out of retirement. Her mission was intercepted by Vader near Tatooine, after a short pursuit through hyperspace.

They were hunted for their warm, supple pelt, and regulations had to be put in place to ensure the native populations were not decimated. These creatures had a strong family relationship, living and hunting in groups of ten or so individuals in the equatorial regions of the planet. Tantla offspring stayed with their mothers for over a year, and were earnestly protected by the older males. Tantlas had poor vision, a result of the fact that they had a single eye in the center of their face. Tantlas scavenged for their food, using their sucker-tipped tongues to draw in pieces of food. (COG)

Tantor
this Esoomian bounty hunter was known to the inhabitants of Mos Eisley as an "antenna-breaker," or the hired thug of a crimelord.

An Imperial stormtrooper rescued them, and they agreed to enter the Academy. Brenn was a year ahead his brother, specializing in combat training and tactical command. They were eventually made honorary members of Cattena Squadron, but their unorthodox membershipmet with resentment among the promoted troops. While Dellis became restless with the lack of comraderie, Brenn hoped that continued diligence would eventually bring about a level of friendship.

this former decorated Imperial TIE Bomber pilot was one of the few females in the Imperial Navy. She didn't care about politics or policy, she just wanted to fly. She was considered a hero of the Navy, having flown nearly sixty missions without failure. However, her sixtieth mission proved tragic, as her escort fighter fired on her bomber by accident while trying to lock onto a B-Wing. Zoodia's bomber crashed on a small moon, but no attempt was ever made to rescue her. She was rescued by an agridroid which notified the authorities of her survival, but Zoodia had suffered major damage to her right arm. The recovery mission arrived too late to save the arm, which had to be amputated and replaced with a cybernetic prosthesis. The artificial arm, coupled with the Empire's lack of commitment to rescue her caused her to resent the Imperials, and she blamed the Empire for her pains. She resigned her commission, and travelled a number of backwater worlds before meeting Xalto Sneerzick. Sneerzick's words rung true with her, although she wasn't sure if it was because of her emotional state or the fact that a droid had rescued her. She joined the Droid Abolitionist Movement, and became Xalto's enforcer. She used her Imperial background as a cover for the Movement's ambushes of Cosmohaul Shipping transports, and then became an engineer when Sneerzick's team managed to infiltrate Cosmohaul and take control of the Argent Lady.

an arboreal predator native to the planet Noquivzar. (XWN)

Taoska
this frozen ball of ice and rock was the fifth planet in the Tyrius system. (SPG)

Taozin
this huge, segmented worm was notable because of its ability to hide from the Force. Its long body was protected by segmented, overlapping plates, dotted with nodules which were several centimeters across. A collection of small arms studded its front sections, while a series of thick legs ran along the sides of its body. The head of the taozin was armed with a pair of meter-long mandibles. Behind each side of the taozin's mouth was speciallized gland which produced a sticky, viscous fluid that solidified on contact with air. The taozin used this to build its tunnels, as well as to caoture prey. Visually, the taozin's entire body was transparent, including its plated skin and internal organs. The internal structure of the taozin's body allowed it to break up light, including the light created by a lightsaber. This made the taozin almost impervious to a lightsaber attack. They were believed to have been extinct, a belief which was due in part to the fact that the creature did not radiate any presence within the Force. It was discovered by the droid I-5YQ that the skin nodules of a taozin could be severed from the body, and yet still were invisible to the Force, as Lorn Pavan used one nodule to sneak up on Darth Maul. Further investigation revealed that the taozin was native to the moon Va'art. (DMSH, WOTC, PJSB)

Tap Tree
native to the moon Sulon, and similar to the taproot tree of Altor 14, this immense tree can grow for more than 1,000 years. Its tubular roots, known as taps, sank deep into the crust of Sulon and brought water to the moon's surface. The farmers of Sulon maintained tap trees to irrigate their crops. (SFE)

Tapani Sector
this area of the Colonies region of the galaxy was considered a respected part of the Core Worlds, due to its proximity and wealth. It was made up of two distinct areas: The Expanse, located in the heart of the sector; and the Freeworlds Region, situated along its border. In all, Tapani Sector included seventy star systems, of which about 15 systems were heavily populated most other systems have some form of settlement, primarily mining colonies. The inhabited worlds were controlled by some 345 noble families, each of which was aligned with a major political House. On most navigational charts, the only ways into or out of the sector was by the Shapani Bypass or the Giju Run. (EGP, PGT, TSIA)

this hidden smugglers' haven was rumored to be located somewhere in Tapani Sector, but its location was never discovered. Many a con artist sold the coordinates of the shadowport to unsuspecting travelers. (PGT)

Tapani Starship Cooperative
this consortium of starship manufacturers based in the Tapani Sector of the galaxy controlled much of that industry in the sector. (LOE)

Tapani, Shey
this warrior prince was a member of House Melantha, and rose to power in Tapani Sector some 8,000 years before the Battle of Naboo. It was Shey Tapani who first envisioned a united Tapani Sector government, and to this end he started a vast, bloody civil war to bring all the Houses into a single body. During the twenty years of the war, Tapani eliminated two Houses completely while a third collapsed a century after he was crowned emperor. Tapani established the sector capital on Procopia, building a vast estate on Estalle Island. Sixteen successive generations of Tapani's descendants ruled the Sector, until the dynasty was overthrown in favor of a more democratic government. (PGT)

Tapani-class Carrier
another starship designed by the Tapani Starship Cooperative, this 375-meter-long starship was developed to deliver scores of Manta-class starfighters into battle. Armed with six turbolaser batteries and ten ion cannon batteries, the Tapani-class carrier requried a crew of 1,885 officers and 53 gunners, and could transport up to 100 troopers, 120 pilots, and 75 metric tons of cargo. (LOE)

Tapani-class Cruiser
this starship design was manufactured by the Tapani Starship Cooperative during the early years of the New Order. Also classified as an assault frigate, these ships were armed with twenty laser cannons, fifteen turbolaser batteries, and six quad-laser batteries. The Tapani-class cruiser measured 750 meters in length, and was crewed by 3,550 officers and 114 gunners. It could transport up to 800 troops and 12,500 metric tons of cargo. (TSIA, LOE)

Tapcafe
this was the generic term for a bar, often housing several games of chance. (DFR)

Tapeno Library
located on Procopia's Estalle Island, this library was famous for its collection of books, scrolls, mundane holocrons, and computer banks which documented the last 7,000 years of history in Tapani Sector. Despite the support of nearly all the sector's noble Houses, the Library was unable to prevent the complete loss of its records of the Jedi Knights from the planet Pelagia. (LOE)

Tap-Nar-Pal
this Cerean male was training to become a Jedi Knight, under the tutelage of Jedi Master Ronhar Kim, when the Clone Wars broke out across the galaxy. Kim recognized Tao's potential, and often felt that his apprentice was well ahead of him in terms of insight and skills. As the war ground on, Tap approached his Master with a strange plan to have all the Senators of the Republic tested for midichlorians. He had heard the story of Obi-Wan Kenobi's imprisonment on Geonosis, and the report Obi-Wan had made about his interrogation by Count Dooku. Tap believed that the war could be cut short if the Sith Lord in the Senate was exposed. Master Kim agreed to bring the idea to his old friend, Chancellor Palpatine, who argued that the idea would cause more damage than good. Tap suggested that Palpatine himself be the first to take the test, thereby showing the rest of the Senate that it was a good idea. Palpatine agreed to think about the idea, but asked the Jedi to keep it to themselves for the time being. Immediately after their meeting with Palpatine, Kim and Tap were dispatched to Merson, to establish a staging area for a larger mission to eliminate the Merson Pirates. While Master Kim led the ground forces, Tap remained in space, leading the starfighters that defended the small fleet that accompanied them to Merson. Both the fleet and the ground forces were ambushed upon their arrival, and were cut off from each other. The ground forces took heavy casualties when Captain Gilad Pellaeon was unable to free up a rescue ship. Tap took it upon himself to break away from the fight to try and rescue his Master, but his ship was badly damaged by Separatist droid starfighters as he reached the planet's surface. Unable to control the ship, Tap died when it plowed into a field and exploded. (RBL)

Tapper, Quelev
Talon Karrde's former second-in-command, Quelev accompanied Kaarde to Varont where they decided to see if the safari business was profitable. Quelev himself was a former leader of a smuggling group, and made a small fortune in the wake of the Battle of Endor. However, much of his business was in Imperial-held territory, and he was hunted down by a local governor. Karrde happened to be in the area, and they agreed to merge their operations and avoid the Imperials. On Varonat, they stumbled onto Gamgalon's Yagaran aleudrope business, and got too close to the truth. They were cornered by Gamgalon's forces, and Tapper tried to turn the tables. He was too slow, though, and was killed in a firefight. (EGC, TFE, SWJ1)

Tappratine
also known as the codru bat, this four-winged bat was native to Munto Codru. (EGP)

Tapps, Kaaver
this man was a member of the tactical analysis team assigned to Supreme Chancellor Valorum, shortly before Valorum was deposed. Tapps was dispatched to the Naboo System to reconnoiter the Trade Federation's blockade of the system, before Valorum sent Qui-Gon Jinn and Obi-Wan Kenobi to Naboo. (SON)

Tar Morden
shortly after the Battle of Yavin, the Alliance established a starfighter manufacturing enterprise on this planet. (MB)

T'ar Ta'avon
this Chadra-Fan ran a starship repair facility on the outskirts of Romar's primary spaceport. Known as an outlaw tech, most spacers weren't sure if the cheerful little alien was an engineering genius or a crazed tinkerer. He could fix most things, but often found other things to "improve" while he was working. (PSG)

Tara
this woman served as Roark Slader's second-in-command aboard the Slader's Raider II during the early years of the New Republic. (SWJ3)

this Klatooinan Jedi Knight was one of the handful of Jedi who survived the initial stages of the Battle of Geonosis. Tarados Gon was part of the small group who were surrounded by the droid armies of Count Dooku and his Separatists, just before the Army of the Republic arrived on Geonosis. Note that Inside the Worlds of Star Wars: Episode II indicates that Tarados Gon died during the Battle of Geonosis, when the LAAT/I carrying him was shot down and crashed. (OWS, IWE2)

Taraloon
located in the Quintar Nebula, Taraloon is a dry, rocky world riddled with caves and caverns. It was discovered by Tron Nixx, who was working for the pirate Drek Drednar. The pirates established their base of operations on the planet. The day on Taraloon lasts 18 standard hours, and the year lasts 285 local days. (SWJ5)

Tarana-te'sath
this was the term used by the Tarasin race to describe their world in the aftermath of a great cataclysm. Many Tarasin elders believed that the tarana-te'sath was going to occur sometime during the Clone Wars. The actions of a single Human Jedi Knight, who had intimate knowledge of the Tarasin, convinced even Mother Dariana that the threat of the tarana-te'sath was real. This Jedi confirmed Dariana's fears about Cularin's survival in the wake of the Clone Wars, and provided the impetus she needed to invoke the shorda'ki. (LFCW)

Taranu, Rif
this man was a noted smuggler, who often carried cargoes for the Alliance during the height of the Galactic Civil War. He used his converted Corellian Space Cruiser, the Dead Reckoning to run weapons and supplies to Alliance worlds on the fringes of the galaxy. After the Battle of Endor, Taranu went back to smuggling full-time for profit. (SOG)

Tarascii Explosives
this small weapons manufacturer specialized in the design of thermal detonators. Tarascii was a subsidiary of BlasTech, and was one of the few corporations which were licensed by the Empire to manufacture baradium. (ROE)

Tarasin
this species of sentient, quilled reptiloids was native to the planet Cularin. Believed to be descended from the same stock as the kilassin, the Tarasin evolved into social groups and eventually gained sentience. These beings were incredibly attuned to the Force, and their society was based on a symbiotic relationship with their planet. Their religion was also based on the worship of nature, and any actions made against the natural order of the planet were punished. Because of their relationship with the planet, most Tarasin will only travel off-planet for very short periods of time, and only for a short distance. When logging corporations began to discover the exotic trees of Cularin, the Tarasin were driven to fight off several attempts to clear a forest. The skin of a Tarasin was unusual in that it could change its coloration in response to the Tarasin's mood, and also as a form of communication. A more complex form of communication is achieved by simply changing the colors of the fingers on one hand, rather than openly expressing oneself by changing their body color. Naturally, a Tarasin is the light green color of the horonna plant's leaves. White skintone indicated joy, while black signified the end of a conversation. Orange skintone, when similar to that of the gargrell flower, indicated that the Tarasin was angry or irritated, depending on the intensity of the coloration. When a Tarasin changed its skin color to purple - a color which didn't naturally exist in the ecosystem of Cularin - it was often done in one's home, and indicated amusement. Yellow, like the vine of the arrgrar, indicated illness in an individual, while blue indicated a level of respect or deference on the part of the speaker. Among the distinguishing parts of the Tarasin form were the kampo, the Tarasin name for their head-fan, and the sa'tosin, the quills which grew from the backs of their forearms. (LFC, LFCW)

Tarasin Revolt
this bloody struggle between the Tarasin, native to the planet Cularin, and the offworlders who traveled to the planet to harvest ch'hala wood, developed shortly after the Tarasin declared the ch'hala tree to be sacred to their religion. The Tarasin began to prohibit the harvesting of ch'hala trees for wood, despite the efforts of several corporations which had set up logging operations on Cularin. When the Trade Federation began to bring in armed guards to protect their logging operations, the Tarasin responded by attacking the loggers and blocking access to the forests. The violence only escalated when Tarasin tribes across the planet joined in the blockade. The Jedi Knights were eventually called in to mediate the situation, but at first refused to intervene. However, as the violence escalated, the Jedi could no longer sit back and watch. Two counselors were dispatched to the Cularin System. In what became known as the Cularin Compact, the Jedi outlined the rights of the Tarasin people to hold the trees sacred. The Compact also noted that outside logging interests had been previously allowed under Tarasin religion. After six months of negotiation, the Compact described the sharply curtailed logging activities which would be allowed on Cularin, thereby satisfying the Tarasin's demands and allowing logging to continue. A peace between the Tarasin and the offworlders eventually took hold. (LFC)

Tarasinese
this was the native language of the Tarasin people of Cularin. (LFC)

Taratan
this Kubaz was born on the planet Morning's Bell. It was believed he was captured by the Yevetha when the reptilian race initiated its Great Purge, and held on the Super-class Star Destroyer Pride of Yevetha as a hedge against reprisal by the New Republic. In reality, Taratan and many others had fled Yevethan capture on the Star Morning while Enara maintained an illusion which made the Yevetha believe he was still in the Star Destroyer's holds. (TT)

Taray
this Nothoiin male was one of just a handful of non-humans ever to work in Cloud City's Wing Guard during the height of the New Order. Originally a native of the Kaniti province on Bavva, Taray grew up in a lawless environment that gave him the resolve to become a police officer. At Bespin, Taray held the rank of Sergeant, and was not above breaking the very laws he was charged with enforcing, so long as he ensured that the spirit of the law was upheld. Taray was also loyal to Lando Calrissian, and often cited individuals for marginal crimes if they spoke ill of the Baron-Administrator. (WOA34)

Tarc
this was the alias given to the young boy, Dab Hantaq, by Viqi Shesh, during their attempt to escape from Coruscant aboard the Millennium Falcon. Senator Shesh, under the guise of the refugee Welda, claimed that Tarc was the orphaned son of Ran Kether. Their ruse was discovered by the combat droid YVH 1-507A, which detected that Senator Shesh was using an ooglith masquer to alter her appearance. Tarc followed Han Solo and his wife, Leia Organa Solo, to the based on Borleias after Coruscant was lost to the Yuuzhan Vong, trying to regain a measure of respectability with the New Republic. He renounced his old name and simply went by Tarc, and eventually made friends with Tam Elgrin. (SBS, EL1, EL2)

Tarc
this race of carnivorous crustaceans was native to the planet Hjaff. They were believed to have evolved from a race of sea-dwelling crustaceans, but were forced to live on dry land over time. The average Tarc was bipedal, standing on two legs and having four arms. The upper pair of arms had dextrous hands, while the lower pair had huge claws for fighting. They stood about two meters tall, but their exoskeleton and their musculature made them extremely large. They lacked lips, teeth, and tongues, but their mouths were filled with small, hollow spikes which were used to inject an acidic saliva into their food. Primary digestion began in the mouth, and the spikes could then be used to shred their food into smaller pieces for swallowing. Tarcs ate primarily the mollusks and other small creatures which lived in the deserts of Hjaff. As a race, the Tarcs were not necessarily violent, but they maintain a zero-tolerance stance with other races. They colonized much of the space around Hjaff, and protected their worlds with a navy known as the Ivlacav Gourn. Tarcs were not allowed to leave their native system, and it was a crime to be caught outside their home without permission. (AE)

Tardi
this man, the Alliance's Minster of Finance and a Viscount by title, accompanied Leia Organa to Aargau, shortly after the Battle of Hoth. The Alliance hoped to acquire funding for a new squadron of X-Wing starfighters, and believed that Tardi was the only member of the Alliance with the knowledge of banking protocol to successfully complete such a transaction with the Bank of Aargau. They planned to use the Crown Jewels of Alderaan as their collateral, knowing that a loan would be granted almost immediately. Unknown to the rest of the galaxy, however, Tardi had actually died several months earlier. Alliance technicians created an android duplicate, knowing that it could pass through Aargauun customs without a problem. The tricky part would be leaving Aargau, when it was discovered that Tardi was actually a droid. For this reason, Leia schemed to have Darth Vader - who was on Aargau to stop the loan - "kill" Tardi in a fight. Vader, however, had secretly turned the tables on Leia. Viscount Tardi's personal doctor was actually an Imperial spy, and relayed information of his death to Vader. After learning that she planned to use the jewels as collateral, Vader bribed the Aargauun officials into allowing him to acquire them. He then went out of his way to explain this to Leia, after disabling the Tardi droid, so that she could not stop him from taking them without canceling the loan for the X-Wings. (MC48)

Tardon Golor
this male Twi'lek was known as a starship thief of some renown, during the early years of the New Republic. He even stole B-Wing and X-Wing fighters from the New Republic, and sold them to the highest bidders. (WBC)

Ta-Ree
this was the name given to the Force-like energy which permeated the planet Kathol and much of Kathol Sector. Formed when the concentrated life-energies of the ancient Kathol - trapped in the Lifewell in the wake of the Rift Disaster - twisted the very essense of the Force, the Ta-Ree gave beings on Kathol unusual powers, and amplified the effects of the Force in beings from the rest of the galaxy. However, Ta-Ree powers were only usable on Kathol, as the energy of the Lifewell was focused there. The name "Ta-Ree" is a word which meant "spirit energy" among the various species which lived on the planet Kathol. When the Kathol that were trapped in the Lifewell sensed that beings from other races - mainly the crew of the FarStar - were using Ta-Ree powers, the Kathol began to manipulate the Ta-Ree energy to make it unusable to beings who were not native to Kathol. (E)

Tarelle Sel-Weave
this lustrous fabric was used in the creation of high-fashion shirts during the height of the New Order. (VD)

Taren Plague
this dreaded disease has recently been slowed by the use of drugs created on Meris III. (PG)

Tarfful
this dark-furred Wookiee warrior was one of the thousands who defended their homeworld during the last months of the Clone Wars. For Tarfful it was personal, since much of the fighting took place in Kachirho, where he served as the city's leader. During the war, Tarfful was captured by Separatist-funded Trandoshan slavers, but was later rescued by the Delta Squad of clone commandos. In the wake of the First Battle of Coruscant, Tarfful and Chewbacca were glad to have the support of Jedi Master Yoda and his clone troops, led by Commander Gree. However, after Chancellor Palpatine revealed that he was actually Darth Sidious, the Wookiees found themselves the targets rather than the allies. Although Chewbacca managed to gather up Master Yoda and flee, Tarfful was caught in the crossfire and was believed to have been killed. This was all a ruse, meant to cover the escape of Master Yoda and Chewbacca, while allowing the Wookiees time to ambush their pursuers. Tarfful then helped Yoda reach an emergency escape craft, while barking orders to his fellow Wookiees to eliminate the remaining clones. Tarfful was portrayed by Michael Kingma in Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith. (OWS, IS3, VD3)

Targan
this man served as the Imperial Governor of Rydar II, during the height of the New Order. (EGA)

this was the codename of the downed Alliance Y-Wing starfighter lost on planet NCW-781. (IA)

Target Drone
this small device was used by starfighter pilots to hone their dogfighting skills. (CSWEA)

Target Star System
this was the name given to the simplest of hyperspace navigational computer systems. It used basic algorithms to plot a straight-line course from a starship's current location to its destination. This destination was denoted as the "target star". Add-on modules provided the target Star System with additional sophistication, allowing a pilot to account for known gravity shadows and mass disturbances. (PM11)

Target-Aggressor Attack Resolution Software
known as TAARS for short, this starfighter training software allowed training squadrons to document shots taken, hits, and kills without causing real damage to the starfighters themselves. The software interfaces with the ship's targetting computer, telling the pilot when he is hit and when he is killed. (XWN)

Targeter
Winter's alias during the height of the Imperial Civil War. She only used it for a few weeks on the planet Averam. (TLC)

Tarhassan
this planet, the homeworld of the Tarhassan race, seceded from the Old Republic during the height of the Clone Wars, despite its previous membership within the Republic. The secession was something of a surprise to the Republic, especially the sudden disappearance of Intelligence agent Edbit Teeks. (SWI73)

Tarhassan Planetary Security
also known as PlanSec, this was the primary police force that protected the planet Tarhassan during the years leading up to the Clone Wars. When the Tarhassan govnerment allied itself with the Confederacy of Independent Systems, PlanSec quickly adopted the tenents and mindset of the Separatists, and began cracking down on possible Republic sympathizers. It was believed that PlanSec was behind the abduction of Edbit Teeks, shortly after the Battle of Geonosis. (SWI73)

Tarhassian
this was another name for the human population of the planet Tarhassan. (SWI73)

Tarheel, Cinda
this balck-haired woman served the Alliance at the base on the planet Arbra, during the months following the Battle of Hoth. She was part of a team, along with Luke Skywalker and Berl, that was dispatched to Serphidi to make contact with the native Serps. Captain Tarheel's X-Wing fighter was shot down over Serphidi by Imperial TIE Fighters when they entered the system, and she was forced to crash-land her ship on the surface. Only years of experienced helped her make the landing successfully. However, as soon as Luke and Berl arrived to help, they were set upon by a group of armored Serps. Berl was shot and killed, and Cinda was wounded and taken prisoner. She was forced to be one of King S'Shah's slave girls, until the Serp King revealed that she was going to be the main course at a dinner in his honor. She briefly escaped, but was shortly captured and subdued. She was to be cooked at the dinner following one of S'Shah's doom-jousts, but Luke managed to defeat the King, with some help from Elglih. The elderly Serp freed Cinda, and agreed to support the Alliance. (MC64)

Taria, Sei
this young woman was Chancellor Valorum's administrative aide, during the last years of his reign over the Old Republic. She considered Senator Palpatine to be her own mentor during this time. She is a dark-haired woman with almond-shaped eyes. After Valorum was removed from his position following a vote of no-confidence, Sei Taria opted not to continue in her administrative role. Note that this character is named Sci Taria in the Young Jedi Card Game - The Jedi Council expansion set. (IG1, YJC2, OWS)

Tariq, Amer
this man served as the Governor-General of Rhinnal, during the early stages of the Yuuzhan Vong invasion of the galaxy. He was forced to close off Rhinnal from the refugees fleeing the Yuuzhan Vong, including Leia Organa-Solo. He did, however, provide her with information on Ruan's acceptance for refugees. (JE)

Taris
this urban planet was located in the Outer Rim Territories. During the millennia before the Great Sith War, Taris' planetwide city was rivalled only by Coruscant itself in its beauty and grandeur. Over the centuries, though, much of the cityscape fell into disrepair and ruin. By the time of the Great Sith War, some 4,000 years before the Battle of Yavin, the cityscape was terrorized by swoop gangs and packs of rakghouls. Those natives with wealth and power escaped to the upper levels of the city, known as the Upper City, leaving the rest of the population to fester in the Lower City. In the fighting that occurred during the Sith War, Taris was eventually attacked and destroyed by the Sith. (SWI63, KOTOR, SWDB)

Tark, Lanaxa
this woman married Boes Tark. (WBC)

Tark, Moxin
the son of Boes Tark, Moxin was disenchanted with the luxurious lifestyle his parents led. His father trained him in various martial arts, hoping Moxin would follow in his footsteps and join the military. Moxin wanted nothing to do with the Empire, and soon left his homeworld of Bandonia and took up bounty hunting. Somehow, he managed to obtain a set of battle armor from the Sun Guards of Thyrsus, which he modified for his own usage.

Tarkazza
this silverback Wookiee male was Katarra's father and bodyguard during the Imperial occupation of Kashyyyk. He was identifiable by his black fur, which was striped with silver. He once had to transport Han Solo in a quulaar sling, when Han first visited Kashyyyk and was unable to climb the wroshyr trees. (RD)

Tarkil Hroka
a former soldier, this hulking Gamorrean was one of the best pit-fighters found on the planet Jenenma. He spent much of his career in the city of Sahl-Evin, purposely spilling drinks on other beings in order to goad them into a fight. Tarkil simply enjoyed beating people up, and was not very good at anything else. He rarely lost a fight, and almost always beat his opponent to death in order to avoid a rematch. (WOA19)

Tarkin
this Imperial weapons project was developed in the Patriim System, in the wake of the destruction of the first Death Star during the Battle of Yavin. It combined the Death Star's offensive weaponry and ionic cannons with a new set of engines and defensive shield generators, reducing the number of support personnel needed operate the weapon. The designers also upgraded the ship's exhaust systems, eliminating the weakness of the Death Star. The Tarkin's main fuselage was based on the design of the Super-class Star Destroyer, but on a scale comparable to that of the Death Star. A team of Alliance agents, including Luke Skywalker and Leia Organa, managed to infiltrate the superweapon and destroy a main power generator, as well as reversing the polarization of its fire control mechanism. When Colonel Nord tried to fire the ionic cannon on the fleeing Alliance agents, the Tarkin fired inward on itself and exploded, killing all aboard and tearing itself apart. (EGC, LTA3, MC51)

Tarkin
this Omwati word, derived from the name of Imperial Grand Moff Wilhuff Tarkin, loosely translated into Basic as a combination of "butcher" and "demon". (NEGC)

Tarkin, Lady
the widow of Grand Moff Willhuf Tarkin, the Lady Tarkin ran the Imperial megonite moss mining colony on Phelarion. She worked her miners to exhaustion in an effort to avenge her husband's death. When Leia Organa was stranded on the planet following her escape from Darth Vader, Leia was chosen as a servant by the Lady. Leia, in this position, helped smuggle the energy-giving moss off the planet. When Darth Vader himself came to Phelarion and confronted the Lady Tarkin about the smuggled moss, Leia realized that she had been using Lady Tarkin's own transponder to call the smugglers. She realized that she had to escape soon. Leia escaped from Lady Tarkin's service, and little is known of the fate of Lady Tarkin. (CSWEA, EGC)

Tarkin, Ranulph
a member of the Tarkin family of Eriadu, Ranulph Tarkin was a Senator who styled himself as a General in the Old Republic armed forces during the years just prior to the Stark Hyperspace War. He was known as the leader of the faction known as the Militarists, and he continually addressed the Senate in an effort to form a strong Army and Navy. When his requests for military backing were denied, General Tarkin formed his own Navy, culling officers and ships from the ranks of the Republic's meager forces which were loyal to him. He offered to take this fleet and smash the negotiations which were being held between the Republic and the Stark Commerical Combine, an offer which Nute Gunray of the Trade Federation could not refuse. Gunray told Tarkin that the negotiations were taking place on Troiken, and Tarkin set out in the flagship Invincible to destroy Iaco Stark. Unfortunately, Stark had anticipated the military action, and placed a navigational computer virus in the memory banks of Tarkin's entire fleet. Many ships were destroyed or lost, but the Invincible arrived at Troiken. Its supporting fleet was decimated, and Stark's forces picking the fleet apart. Tarkin, however, refused to admit defeat. While he ordered his crew to abandon ship, Tarkin fled to his personal shuttle with his aide, Jace Dallin. Tarkin ordered his forces to regroup on Troiken, but they were badly outnumbered again by Stark's mercenaries. Tarkin railed against then-Senator Finis Valorum and the Jedi Knights who came to their aid, and his own troops began to question his leadership. Tarkin tried to trap Stark on his own, but was killed when he accidentally set off the explosives he meant to use against Stark. (SHW)

Tarkin, Rivoche
this strikingly beautiful woman was the daughter of Brigadier Gideon Tarkin, and the niece of Grand Moff Willhuf Tarkin. After the death of her father during the Erhynradd Massacre, she was offered a home at her uncle's estate. She was began to throw tantrums around her adopted parents, resentful of the fact that her father had been taken away from her. She was shipped off to a prep school on Claer, and began to hate her uncle and everything he stood for. After meeting Biggs Darklighter and learning of the Alliance, she began passing information to him in order to thwart Imperial operations. She continued to act as a deep-cover spy for the Alliance after the destruction of Alderaan, using her position as an Imperial socialite to gain access to secret information. She was caught on the planet Corulag and forced into an engagement to Vastin Caglio, shortly before the Battle of Hoth, but was eventually rescued by Cryle Cavv and Quillin Arkell. After the Battle of Endor and the downfall of the Empire, Rivoche became a member of the New Republic's historical branch. She reported on the fighting that occurred between the New Republic and the remnants of the Empire on Coruscant. She was stationed on the Emancipator when it was disabled. (CRO, DESB, SWJ12)

Tarkin, Wilhuff
although his origins and his Imperial service records are sparse, Tarkin had a noticeable career with the Imperial Navy before proposing the infamous "Rule by Fear" doctrine to Emperor Palpatine. Tarkin was born some thirty years before the Battle of Naboo. Early in his career, Tarkin was the Lieutenant Governor of the planet Eriadu before becoming a Commander in the Republic Outland Regions Security Force, where he first exerted his power by coercing Raith Sienar into an attempt to take control of the planet Zonama Sekot. Despite the setbacks suffered there, Tarkin nevertheless manipulated events in his favor, and gained considerable status in the eyes of Supreme Chancellor Palpatine. He was elevated to the position of Governor during the height of the Clone Wars, serving Palpatine on Coruscant as the battle raged across the galaxy. His rise to power within the Imperial military was equally smooth; he was promoted from Captain to Moff for taking the initiative and commanding the Ghorman Massacre. It was during this time that he noticed the talents of Daala on Carida, and brought her along with him when he became Grand Moff of the Outer Rim Territories. The two became intimate confidantes, sharing their dreams for rulership along with their passion for each other, even though Tarkin had a wife back on Phelarion. Tarkin's innate evil and cunning was evident in his establishment of the Maw Installation, a secret laboratory dedicated to the creation of the superweapons which would make governing the Empire easier. When the Empire tried to enslave the Mon Calamari, Tarkin took centerstage in the attack. It was at this time that Tarkin obtained Ackbar as his personal slave. There are also rumors that Tarkin was given Ackbar as a slave by an opportunistic subordinate. Ackbar used this period to absorb all that he could about Imperial fleet strengths and weaknesses, and he also learned a great deal about Tarkin's personality. He also learned a great deal about the first Death Star in this way. When the Alliance tried to assassinate Tarkin, they were thwarted by Imperial ships, but managed to rescue Ackbar. Tarkin's major contribution to the Emperor's cause was the Death Star, which he used to rule the Outer Rim for a brief period. Palpatine assigned Tarkin to the Death Star, hoping to quell the various rebellions that occurred in the Outer Rim. However, Tarkin also had a hidden objective in creating the Death Star. Once the battle station was operational, he'd hoped to use it against Palpatine, in an attempt to take control of the galaxy for himself. Palpatine foresaw some of Tarkin's motives, and assigned Wullf Yularen as Tarkin's assistant. Tarkin's personal ambitions and self-confidence got the best of his, though, during the Battle of Yavin. Tarkin refused to evacuate the station, even with the knowledge that the Alliance had found a flaw to exploit. Tarkin Tarkin was killed when the Death Star was destroyed even as he gave the command to fire on the Massassi base. The Empire released an official death notice for Tarkin, but it claimed that he died in a shuttle crash at the Tallaan Shipyards. Tarkin was portrayed by Peter Cushing in Star Wars: A New Hope, by Wayne Pygram in Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith, and by Keene Curtis for the Star Wars Radio Drama on National Public Radio. (SW, SWR, MTS, XW, JS, DA, DS, CCG, EGC, RP, DMS, AOTC, BF6, OWS)

Tarkin-12
a port tower located on Byss, the Hyperspace Roamer was ordered to land there, at bay 327. (DE2)

Tarkin's Fang
this was the name of a secret Imperial base, hidden in the Deep Core near Treskov-115W. Tarkin's Fang was located on a planet that was at the end of several hyperspace travel routes, but all routes to the base were dead-ends. The Tarkin's Fang base was located a few light-minutes from the Treskov System and the mines on Ebaq 9. (DW)

Tarkin's Shears
this form of swoopchasing obstacle was outlawed by the sanctioned racing authority, but nevertheless was popular on non-regulated courses. Based on the Luzitall water obstacle, Tarkin's Shears employed transparisteel pikes imbedded in the outgoing walls of certain hairpin turns. The transparent spikes impaled those racers who came too close to the walls of the ravine while negotiating the turn. (BSS)

Tarkin's Teeth
this Imperial phrase was used after the fall of Willhuf Tarkin, and indicates surprise when sworn. (VOF)

Tarkin's Teeth
this jagged mountain range was located on the planet Carida, and was one of the many locations used by the Imperial Academy to train stormtroopers. Named for Moff Tarkin, the mountains were arid points of land situated about 300 kilometers from the Academy campus. They had been used for wargames for a few hundred years, and were the proving grounds for the MT-ST walker. (PH)

Tarkona
this was one of the more powerful Twi'leki clans. The name meant "stormy weather" in the Twi'leki language. (TEP, GCG)

Tarkosa
this elderly man was one of the Councilors who worked on the Managing Council of the survivors of the Outbound Flight Project, during the years leading up to the Yuuzhan Vong invasion of the galaxy. Tarkosa was also one of the few remaining Survivors, having been an original member of the Outbound Flight team. Like many others among the Survivors, Tarkosa was angry at the Jedi Knights for not providing better protection against their attackers. When a Chiss-led expedition located the remains of Outbound Flight, Tarkosa called for the slow execution of every being assocaited with the original attack. His vengeance went unfufilled, as most of the Chiss who took part in the attack had since died. After the Vagaari threat was eliminated, Tarkosa grudgingly agreed to accompany the Outbound Flight Colony to Nirauan, staying as far away from the New Republic as they could. (SQ)

Tarl

Tarl
this Imperial stormtrooper was assigned to the detachment led by Lieutenant Stalgis, which accompanied Luke Skywalker to Munlali Mafir during his search for information on the rogue planet Zonama Sekot. When their party was attacked by mutated Krizlaws, Tarl was caught and forced to ingest a Jostran individual. The Jostran began to fuse itself to Tarl's spine and nervous system, and would have overtaken him if Luke and his nephew, Jacen Solo, hadn't used the Force to keep the creature at bay. They took Tarl back to Tekli's medical facilities aboard the Widowmaker, where the Chadra-Fan was able to extricate the Jostran and save his life. (FH2)

Tarl
this young boy was one of three children Yander had with his first wife, on the planet Ord Cestus. The children grew up for many years without a mother, until Yander married Sheeka Tull. After Yander's death, the children continued living with Sheeka, although they stayed with aunts and uncles whenever Sheeka had to work. (TCD)

Tarlen, Bentu Pall
the head of the Imperial Center Construction Contracts Division, Bantu was also on Prince Xizor's payroll. He kept Xizor abreast of the current bids on construction projects. This allowed Xizor's legitimate construction business to underbid and win the contracts. (SE, SESB)

Tarlo Ganar
this noted Khil tactician and warrior distinguished himself as a member of the Belnar Sector Force, during their defeat of the Peltsic League's forces. However, rather than face mandatory retirement at the end of his military career, Tarlo Ganar set out on his own and eventually joined the m'Yalfor'ac Order. He had been long a friend of Quaal Tavier Catharius, who recognized his skills and took him on as an advisor, despite the consternation of other Bitthaevrians. (AIR)

Tarlok, Kilon
this odd fellow managed the Terman Station outpost, between Sriluur and Sespe along the Sisar Run, during the height of the Galactic Civil War. He had been in control of the station well before the Nalroni crimelord Spraz showed up and usurped the station. Tarlok believed that Sprax gave him complete control of the station, as long as the credits ended up in Sprax's coffers. In reality, Sprax planned to remove Tarlok at his earliest convenience. (SSR)

Tarm
this man, a native of the planet Jomark, was a villager who got involved in a dispute with Svan, some five years after the Battle of Endor. The dispute was mediated by Joruus C'baoth, with the help of Luke Skywalker, who had just arrived on the planet. (DFR)

Tarmul
this plant, native to the planet Qiilura, was used in the planting of ornamental hedges. (RCHC)

Tarn, Eremin
this Jedi Knight, the second Padawan trained by Maks Leem, was one of the many who left the Jedi Order at the onset of the Clone Wars. Eremin believed that Jeisel and her band were correct about the Jedi Order, and Eremin's strong principles led him to abandon the Order to seek out the true path. (YDR)

Tarn, Rhad
this young man was one of the many Jedi Knights who felt that the Jedi Order was becoming too militaristic during the early years of the Clone Wars. He left the Order to follow his teacher, Sora Bulq, to Ruul in protest of the Jedi's participation in the war. Rhad was a hot-tempered youth who openly declared that the Jedi should have joined the Separatists, since the Old Republic had become too corrupt and self-centered. When Asajj Ventress killed Mira, and said that she had been hired by Mace Windu himself to destroy Master Bulq, Rhad immediately demanded that Windu be held accountable for her death. He set out to capture both Windu and Ventress, but was intercepted by Ventress near her ship. In a brief lightsaber duel, Ventress nearly succeeded in drawing Rhad over to the Dark Side of the Force. His determination to prove himself flared into anger at the Jedi Order for holding him back, and he openly opposed the efforts of Jeisel and K'kruhk to return him to their cause. In a heated lightsaber battle, Tarn nearly killed Jeisel, but she managed to get her own lightsaber between them as he charged. Tarn was killed instantly. (OWS, J1)

Tarn, Rhad
this student of the Force was among the many young children who were being trained at the Jedi Temple on Coruscant when the Battle of Naboo occurred. Unfortunately, Rhad died shortly afterward. (YDR)

Tarn, Wexlann
known as a gentleman among bounty hunters, Tarn was the child of a wealthy family. He loved fine art, and used his position as a bounty hunter as a way to gather expensive artworks for his own collection. The fees he collects all go toward the purchase of new pieces. (GG10)

Tarnab
this humanoid alien race was characterized by its triangular skull. At the lower point was the tapir-like snout; at the temples were four short horns. The mysterious blue eyes of the Tarnab people gave them a fearsome appearance, and their scraggly hair only added to the apparent danger. (OWS)

Tarnese Bleyd
this male Sakiyan served the Old Republic as an Admiral during the Clone Wars, commanding a MedStar ship that supplied the various Rimsoo units of the planet Drongar. It was in this position that Bleyd encountered Filba the Hutt, and the pair quickly began forming plans to make a profit from the sale of processed bota. Bleyd himself was skilled hunter of rare skill who was motivated more by a need to avenge his family name than by any true loyalty to the Republic. He believed that he deserved a much better posting that Drongar, and would have preferred somewhere at the heart of the fighting, where he could have used his innate skills to obtain a much higher-visibility position. The criminal aspect of his demeanor was not unusual, given that his father, Tarnese Lyanne, had become involved with Shiltu the Hutt. It was Shiltu's double-crossing that led to Clan Tarnese's downfall, ultimately forcing Bleyd to enlist with the Republic military in order to make ends meet. When, in Bleyd's opinion, the Republic failed to recognize his talents, he decided to make himself rich at the Republic's expense. He and Filba secretly made contact with the Black Sun organization, and arranged for a series of regular, though small, shipments of bota to be made available for sale. Filba's plans to freeze the processed bota in carbonite allowed them to ship the bota across the galaxy, making it more profitable for all. Bleyd, however, wasn't satisfied with the cut he was getting from Black Sun, and planned to set out on his own. These plans were thwarted, however, after Filba became equally as greedy, and tried to force Black Sun to pay a higher price for the bota. Bleyd confronted Filba shortly after the Hutt was poisoned by Kaird, and Filba died in his grasp. Black Sun sent an agent to investigate, and Bleyd promptly murdered him rather than giving in to their demands. This forced Kaird into action, and the Nediji confronted Bleyd about his actions. Bleyd, ever the hunter, accepted Kaird's challenge, and the two squared off in a knife duel. The duel appeared to be a stalemate until Kaird threw his knife at Bleyd. Bleyd deflected the knife with his arm, laughing at the Nediji's apparent foolishness. Unknown to Bleyd, however, was that the knife had been coated with dendriton toxin, which entered his system through the wound. Within minutes, Bleyd would have died from the toxin, although Kaird spared him any agony by cutting his throat before the toxin took effect. (MBS)

Tarnese Lyanne
this male Sakiyan, the father of Tarnese Bleyd, had made several hefty investments in black market and smuggling operations during the decades leading up to the Battle of Naboo. However, he was double-crossed by Shiltu the Hutt, and he lost everything the Tarnese clan had owned. Clan Tarnese was disgraced, and Tarnese Lyanne's children were forced to look for work away from Sakiya. (MBS)

Tarnese!
this was the blood cry of Clan Tarnese. Both e's in the word have long vowel sounds. (MBS)

Tarnished Blades
this pirate gang was formed from the survivors of the Silent Blades group, which was routed by Vocis Kenit and the Far Orbit before its crew mutinied. They were led by Shel Marcino, who decided to help the Far Orbit out, especially if it meant getting a chance to strike back at Vocis Kenit. (FOP)

Tarnooga
this water-covered planet was the primary world of the Tarnooga System. The pirate base of Gir Kybo Ren-Cha was located on this planet, during the early years of the New Order. (DCAR)

Tarok Detention Center
this Imperial prison facility was located on the planet Bacrana. (FBS)

Taron Von
this Skakoan individual was noted in the histories of the planet Skako. (UANT)

Tarong
an avian race evolved from the continual cross-breeding of two avian species once native to the Epidimi System. When the Old Republic discovered the system, they found the two species - living on the planets Iri and Disim - were genetically similar, and members from both were transported to the other planet. This simple experiment, over the millenia, has led the to extinction of the two original species and the 'birth' of the Tarong race. The average Tarong is a massive, winged quadriped, with a wingspan averaging around twenty meters. They have tough, leathery skin and long, hooked beaks. Young Tarongs are lighter in color than their older counterparts. Their front feet are almost as useful as hands, and are used to manipulate objects. Their rear feet are incredibly strong, and used for climbing and grasping. They are highly intelligent, and can master languages quickly. They are also very curious and friendly, wanting to learn everything about the beings they meet and considering them friends until they do something to harm the Tarong or its family. If the stranger acts violently, the Tarong will often capture them and carry them off to some remote location to die of exposure. Tarongs do not like physical violence, and will only hunt and kill for food. They live in tribes based on family relations, with the oldest member of the family in control of the tribe. They have a primitive technology of their own, but are extremely curious about the strange devices they found used by the rest of the galaxy. The more a device sparkles or blinks, the more attractive it is to a Tarong. (GG12)

Taroon
this young Rutanian boy was King Frane's second son, being just a year younger than his brother Leed. While Leed was away on Senali, Taroon was virtually ignored by his father, who failed to see that Taroon was growing into manhood with many of his father's traits. Chief among those traits was a short temper, and Taroon came to resent his father. When Frane called in Qui-Gon Jinn and Obi-Wan Kenobi to mediate the dispute over Leed, Taroon was allowed to accompany the Jedi to Senali. In a bold move to gain his father's attention, Taroon arranged to have Leed kidnapped, using Rutanian friends who were disguised as Senali to capture his brother. Taroon hoped to have Leed removed as heir-presumptive and take his place as the future king of Rutan. However, Taroon's plans were discovered by the Jedi, who arranged a meeting with King Frane to sort the matter out. Once Frane realized that Leed had made his own decisions, and that Taroon was more than just a "second son," he softened his position. When Leed decided to remain on Rutan to assume his rightful position as heir, Taroon again became angry, and tried to sabotage his father's hunting dogs and frame Leed for the act. When he learned that Drenna had remained on Rutan and was part of the hunting party, Taroon helped the two Jedi destroy the sabotaged seeker droids and restore peace. King Frane was forced to agree that Taroon would make a better leader than Leed, and agreed to allow Leed to return to Senali, while helping Taroon learn everything about rulership on Rutan. Frane even suggested that Taroon consider Drenna for his Queen, after seeing the girl's tenacity and strength. (SP)

Taroon System
a planetary system, containing Kuan and Bordal, that was invaded and usurped by the Empire during the Galactic Civil War. (TIE)

Tarpals
this was one of the most common Gungan surnames, taking from the father's side of the family. These surnames were not dropped, even after marriage. To the Gungans, it meant "fast-moving river". (GCG)

Tarpaulin Plant
native to the planet Altor 14, these plants collect water by unique means. During the hot day, they appear to be large balls of green cloth. As needed, a number of broad leaves can be spread out to collect sunlight for photosynthesis. At night, the main ball of the planet unfolds to cover up to 1,000 square meters of ground. The plant simply allows moisture to condense on its leaves, funnelling it back to the center of the planet for storage. (GG4)

Tarpoon
this heavy, long-shafted spear was a tradition Whiphid weapon. The tarpoon was tipped with a wicked, three-tined blade, and was attached to a length of syntherope. It could be thrown at a target, and the wielder could then retrieve their prey by haulig back on the rope. Many Whiphids have been dragged around by their preyfor several minutes before it tired, in an event which became known as "riding the prey." (SPG)

Tarquin Zian
this Twi'leki male was a moderately successful smuggler during the height of the New Order. He made a brief living by trading arms to the small rebel cell on Kallistas in exchange for gemstones, which he then marketed to the highest bidder. The deal was brokered between Imperial Prefect Denglass Rinn and the Mantis Bounty Hunter Syndicate. After the capture of Pallas Quintell, Rinn employed Tarquin in the hunt for Jondrell Inx. (GG10)

Tarracus, Bonic
a native of Coruscant, Tarracus was old enough to witness the downfall of the Old Republic and the rise of the New Order. Bonic joined the Alliance as an undercover agent, and he was known for his ability to disguise himself as virtually any other person. He used this skill to infiltrate several Imperial events on various Core Worlds, gathering information to return to the Alliance. However, he remained anonymous to much of the Alliance he supported, acting only as the agent codenamed Corewatch. (CRO)

Tarrens, Drigor
this man was once a member of the Qektoth Confederation, but disagreed with the way the group's motives were twisted from research to domination. He fled the confederation and received asylum on Uukaablis. Born on a colony near near the Kathol Rift, he remained silent about his defection from the confederation. Drigor is distinguished by the cybernetic replacement in his left eye, the cause of which is related to his history with the Confederation. About ten years before the FarStar found him on Uukaablis, he had learned that the Confederation was growing clones of its employees with enhanced abilities. Much of this work was shrouded in heavy security, and was performed without the knowledge of the employees. When Tarrens tried to tell the other members of this, his Y-Wing was destroyed. His body was recovered and repaired by the scientists involved, and Tarrens was sentenced to death by the Confederation's leadership. It was then that he fled to Uukaablis. The silvery eye stared straight ahead, no matter what direction Tarrens was looking. Tarrens agreed to help the crew of the FarStar expose the Confederation and obtain the cure for the biological weapon that had been contracted by much of its crew, shortly after realizing that he himself was infected.

Tarris 800 Cables
this line of mini-cables can be used in place of a hardware scomp link. Tarris 800 cables can be used to modify a blaster to fire twice with each pull of the trigger. By connecting the cable between the V-4 plug and the trigger adaptor, a feedback loop can be created to send two pulses to the apas connectors, thereby opening the Heter valve twice. (CFG)

Tarro
this alien race originated in the Til system, on the planet Tililix. When the Til star exploded, the planet Tililix was destroyed. Only those Tarro off-planet at the time survived. An estimated 350 Tarro exist in the galaxy, all of them descendants of the Tarro who had survived the destruction of Tililix. The Tarro are a humanoid race characterized by their dark green skin and piercing yellow eyes. They have seven fingers on each hand, and are heavily muscled. They are formidable fighters and weapons-masters, and are known for their stubborn, independent natures. Little is known of their history and culture, given the cataclysmic reduction of their species. (GG12)

Tarrvin-on-Kallik

Tarrz
this t'landa Til was the Head Sacredot of the Ylesian Colony Nine. When the Rodian mercenary Sniquux infiltrated the colony, he laid a trap of monofilament fibers and then stampeded the t'landa Til with a recording of the call of a thota. Tarrz, foremost among the t'landa Til there, ran straight into the trap and was quickly beheaded. (RD)

Tarsunt System
the planetary system which was a stopover point for Jabba the Hutt when he moved to Tatooine. It was also where Grizzid obtained the rancor from Grendu. (MTS, TJP)

Tarturi, Berm
this man was Andara's Senator to the Old Republic, during the years following the Battle of Naboo. Senator Tarturi struggled to maintain his position as the Andaran System's Senator, facing increasingly stronger opposition from Rana Halion and the populace of Ieria. He even made an enemy in Sano Sauro, when they argued vehemently for the rights to certain profitable trade routes. It was during this time that he spent more and more time on Coruscant, leaving his son Gillam to an education at the Leadership School. When Gillam disappeared, Senator Tarturi feared that he had been kidnapped as part of a plan to force Tarturi to recognize Ieria's independence. Senator Tarturi requested the assistance of the Jedi Knights in locating his son. (JQ5)

Tarturi, Gillam
this young man was the son of Senator Berm Tarturi of Andara, and attended the Leadership School on Andara during the years following the Battle of Naboo. An only child, Gillam found himself alone after the death of his mother when he was twelve. With his father being called to Coruscant on politics, Gillam's only family was at the Leadership School. Five years after the Battle of Naboo, the sixteen-year-old Gillam suddenly disappeared from the school, prompting his father to request an investigation by the Jedi Knights. Obi-Wan Kenobi was appointed to lead the mission, and his Padawan Anakin Skywalker was enrolled in the Leadership School to locate Gillam's friends. Anakin discovered that Gillam was actually the leader of a small band of students who were working as mercenaries in neighboring systems, causing public unrest and forcing "oppressive" leaders to abdicate their rule. It was Gillam who formed the team and recruited its members, although Rolai Frac assumed the role of leader after Gillam's "kidnapping." When Rana Halion employed the young mercenaries to strafe an Andaran military landing platform, as part of a plan to force Berm Tarturi to negotiate, Gillam gladly accepted. Unknown to Halion, however, Gillam planned to use live fire in the mission, as way to have himself "killed." He planned to ensure that Anakin Skywalker was killed in the mission, damaging the body enough so that it could pass as Gillam. Gillam then put plans in place to pin the blame for his kidnapping and death on his own father, Berm Tarturi, to ensure that Berm was discredited and stripped of any power he held. When the plans were exposed by the Jedi Knights, Gillam and his entire team were expelled from the Leadership School and transported to Coruscant for questioning. (JQ5)

Taru

Ta's Roost
this cantina was owned by the Sullustan Sevron Ta, and was located in the city of Gallisport, on Shesharile 5. Sevron Ta made sure that there was always a table ready for the Rabid Mynocks, who were the cantina's unofficial protectors. (SWJ6)

Tas Sea
this was one of the many bodies of salt water found on the planet Ralltiir. It was in the middle of the Tas Sea, atop a rocky outcropping, that Alexi Garyn established his base of operations. (CCW)

Tasar Crystals
these colorful stones held religious meaning to the ancient Tasari people. These beautiful stones were formed in the cataclysmic meteor shower that nearly destroyed the planet Tasariq, and refined in the volcanic upheaval that continued for many decades. Ritual blood sacrifices were made to the crystals, in the hopes of unlocking their mystical potential. The Tasari also believed that these sacrifices would appease the dark gods who rained meteors down on the planet Tasariq, causing massive destruction and relegating the Tasari to a primitive existence. Modern Tasari have abandoned the practice of ritual sacrifice, but pockets of believers still exist in the power of the crystals. Tasar crystals are found in a variety of colors and patterns, and all are believed to have some form of magical or healing powers. They were valued throughout the galaxy, and many Tasari families sold their crystals in order to survive. (AE, SWJ15)

Tasari
this species of hairless humanoids was native to the planet Tasariq. Their faces are bird-like in structure, with a beak-like nose and feathery crests on the back of their skulls. They can live to be 120 years of age, and were known to be inquisitive and minded. Many centuries ago, the Tasari had a flourishing society, until a meteor shower rained down from the skies and destroyed much of the planet's surface. The Tasari were forced to revert to a primitive existence, finding shelter in the craters formed by the meteor impacts, and many blood cults rose from the ashes. These cults enacted blood sacrifices to tasar crystals in order to appease the dark gods who destroyed the planet. Over the next several hundred years, these cults died out, but pockets of believers still exist. In general, Tasari were friendly and outgoing, with a curiosity and openmindedness that allowed them to accept their place in the galaxy and explore beyond their borders. During the New Order, the Tasari had developed an industrial society, but could use more modern technology with relative ease. (AE, SWJ15)

Tasari Crossbow
his simple missile weapon was favored by the blood cults of the Tasari. Each of these crossbows was hand-built at the time when a yougn Tasari earned the right to become an adult. (SWJ15)

Tasariq
this planet was the second planet in the Tasar System, and the homeworld of the Tasari race. Once a temperate world, Tasariq was bombarded many centuries before the Battle of Yavin by a meteor shower. The planet was pummeled, and much of its surface was destroyed. The resulting destruction of the surface created a large amount of chemicals in the atmosphere, rendering it barely breathable. Craters and gouges now dominate its landscape, but it was within these craters that breathable air was trapped, allowing the Tasari to build cities within the craters and survive the holocaust. In the midst of the destruction brought on by the meteors, the heat and volcanic activity combined to form Tasar Crystals out of the materials of the planet's crust. By the era of the Empire, Tasariq became known as the Planet of Crystal. (AE, SWJ15)

Tasariq City
this was the largest settlement on the planet Tasariq. It was established by the Empire, when the planet was first explored. Its layout was in the form of concentric circles, with Circle Park in the center. The Park was surrounded by the Shopper's Round, the governmental and administrative circle, then the living circle. (AE, SWJ15)

Tasariq Rangers
originally formed by Imperial Governor Dem Keval, this was a mercenary police force used to maintain control of the Tasar System during the Galactic Civil War.

Taselda
this ageless woman was among the first Jedi to come to the planet Nam Chorios. She claimed to have been sent to the planet at the behest of her Jedi Master, but it is believed that she and Beldorion went to the planet in hopes of finding some gift that would allow them to more fully use the Force. She was appalled at the living conditions she found, and remained on the planet as something of a leader to the Oldtimers. She kept order in Hweg Shul some 200 years before Callista arrived. When the Hutt Beldorion came to Nam Chorios, Taselda recognized his failures with the Force, and tried to keep him from gaining power. However, the Hutt prevailed, and in the battle her lightsaber was lost. She sustained numerous injuries in the fight, and found herself unable to create another lightsaber. When Callista arrived on the planet, Taselda used her desire to regain the Force as a fulcrum, and manipulated Callista. She hoped to used Callista to recover her lost lightsaber from Beldorion, but the young woman was overcome by the Hutt's augmented power. Later, Taselda tried to ensnare Luke Skywalker the same way, but he defeated her. (POT)

this man, a native of Alderaan, was a successful businessman when the New Order was instituted. He was a skilled pilot and negotiator, learning these trades while running his own starship dealership. Taskeen's small operation was nationalized by the Empire, though, and his fortunes were confiscated. Those non-human employees he had were enslaved, and Taskeen found himself back on Alderaan. Once there, he joined the forces of the Alliance and used his knowledge of the Outer Rim to help transport refugees to safeworlds beyond the Empire's control. His hard work and dedication earned him a swift promotion to General within the Alliance, shortly before the destruction of his homeworld. (FC)

Taspir III
this inhospitable planet was once scouted by the Empire as a possible location of a base. Some ten years after the Battle of Endor, the fallen Jedi Rosh Penin sent a distress signal to his one-time friend, Jaden Korr, asking for help. Penin's message indicated that he was being held prisoner on Taspir III. Although Jaden thought the mission was a trap, Kyle Katarn decided that they needed to answer the distress call on the off-chance that Penin was in real trouble. The two Jedi found that the Imperial base was quite operational, and that the Disciples of Ragnos had also taken up residence on the planet. (JKA)

Tathis, Orinn
this man was a member of the Council of Elders on Alderaan, during the New Order. When Grand Moff Tarkin used the first Death Star to destroy the planet, Tathis was off-world on business. He returned to the Graveyard of Alderaan to locate the armory ship Another Chance and turn its weapons cache over to the Alliance. He had discovered the location of the remote calling device used to communicate with the armory ship, and planned to draw it back. However, his initial plans were thrown off by Darth Vader's attempt to lure Leia Organa and Luke Skywalker to Alderaan as part of Operation Yavin Kill Two.

Tatoo II
one of Tatooine's twin primary stars. It is described as a G2 type star. (SWN)

Tatoo III
this space station was erected in orbit near Tatooine, just after the colonization of the planet. It was built by the settlers of Tatooine, from metals and ores they were able eke out of the desert. It was destroyed shortly after completion when the Obvious Nrivana suddenly rushed at the station during docking and collided with it. An investigation was launched, and it was discovered that the native Tatooinian metals used to construct the station had unusual magnetic properties. Thus, when the Obvious Nirvana approached it, Tatoo III suddenly became a huge magnet. This change in polarity drew the Obvious Nirvana into the station. This one setback marked the beginning of the hardest years Tatooine had ever seen. (GG7)

Tatooine
the primary planet in the Tatoo system, this desert world was located in the Arkanis Sector of the Outer Rim Territories near Piroket and Ryloth, some 43,000 light-years from the galactic core. It was close enough to a major hyperspace nexus to make it easy to get to such worlds as Coruscant and Corellia, but its environment made it one of the most inhosptiable places in the galaxy. The planet's twin suns mercilessly heat the planet, keeping the sodium-rich deserts alive, and a trio of moons encircles the planet. Note that several sources are unsure exactly how many moons Tatooine has. Some say that the planet has a single, natural satellite, while others indicate two or more. Originally discovered more than 5,000 years before the Battle of Yavin, Tatooine was colonized in two distinct waves. Much of the original colonization was unable to survive the harsh environment, and only the city of Anchorhead survived until the modern era. About 1,000 years before the rise of the Empire, the Old Republic declared the planet "nominally habitable," but it was nearly 900 years later that the planet was settled again. These modern settlers arrived to colonize this first world in what was then called the J11.9 system. They coined the name Tatooine from the Jawa name for the planet, Tah doo Een e. The settlers established strongholds on the planet, and many smugglers and criminals have set up operational bases in its wastelands. Corellia Engineering even tried to establish mining operations on the planet, but it proved to be unusually lacking in valuable ores. The settlers there are primarily moisture farmers, extracting what little water they can from the atmosphere for survival. Its location on the galactic fringes makes it a perfect base for smugglers, mercenaries, and bounty hunters. The planet, despite its hostile ecology, supports human life was well as the native races of Jawas, krayt dragons, and Tusken Raiders. The planet's remote location appealed to Owen Lars and his wife Beru, and they lived there with Luke Skywalker for many years. Tatooine's average day lasts 23 standard hours, and its year consumes 304 local days. Note that the Star Wars Journal: Anakin Skywalker claims Tatooine is located not only near several hyperspace routes, but also near other galaxies.

However, that was as far as the resemblance went. An extremely intelligent beast, the howler hunted alone and often preserved its prey by drying it in the arid desert environment. Whenever prey could not be found, the howler could dig up a preserved capture to sustain itself. Howlers were solitary creatures that were very rare, and many beings believed them to be nothing more than rumor or legend. (WOTC)

Taug, Brevis
this man was arrested by Imperial Intelligence officers, after it was learned that he had been bankrolling several operations of the Thanda clan of Zygerian slavers, during the early years of the New Order. In exchange for a reduced sentence, Taug provided information about how he funneled credits into the Thanda's accounts. The Imperials managed to keep Taug's operations going until they also captured Atlee Thanda, effectively smashing one branch of the Zygerian Slavers Guild. (WOA26)

Tauk, Lemmet
one of the Empire's most skilled and loyal soldiers, Tauk was among the top four members of the training facility on Yinchorr, in the same class as Carnor Jax and Kir Kanos. Tauk was a friend of Kanos', and they trained hard together in the hopes of one day serving the Emperor. At the completion of their training, Emperor Palpatine ordered Tauk and Kanos to battle each other to the death, in an effort to prove their loyalty. Both hesitated before Darth Vader forced them into the battle, which Kanos eventually won by running Tauk through with his sword. Kanos mourned for his friend, and earned a scar from the blade of Vader's lightsaber for his emotions. (CE)

Taun We
this Kaminoan female was Project Coordinator working at the cloning factory in Tipoca City, on Kamino, during the years leading up to the Clone Wars. She was also one of Prime Minister Lama Su's chief advisors. Among her duties, Taun We served as the Kaminoans' liaison to Jango Fett, the source of their clones. While most of the Kaminoans working on the clone army project regarded the clones as specimens or simply "output," Taun We felt some level of emotional attachment to the younger clones. Taun We had enough understanding of human emotion to provide the clone troopers with mental stability, despite their rapid growth acceleration and genetic manipulation. However, she was na´ve in her relationship with offworlders, and readily agreed to introduce Obi-Wan Kenobi to Jango Fett. Although Kamino was devastated during the Clone Wars, Taun We survived, along with some portion of the genetic material harvested from Jango Fett. Shortly afterward, Taun We and Ko Sai revealed that it was Darth Tyranus - no Master Sifo-Dyas - who paid for the clones.When Boba Fett learned of this, he contracted Taun We to help grow replacement body parts for him, in order to keep his body whole despite the rigors of bounty hunting. Shortly before the Yuuzhan Vong invasion of the galaxy, Taun We requested that Boba Fett go on one more hunt: to locate and destroy Fenn Shysa, the only surviving member of the attacks on Kamino. Although Fett was surprised to learn of Shysa's ties to the Mandalorians, he carried out Taun We's mission anyway. Taun We was voiced by Rena Owen in Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones. (OWS, AOTCN, VD2, SWDB, SWI80, LEV)

Taung
this ancient race controlled the planet Coruscant for many millennia, prior to the dawn of modern humans. They conquered the other peoples of the planet, including the Zhell, in a series of bloody conquests. They were known throughout history as the Dark Warriors, after a volcano erupted during their final battle with the Zhell. The ash from the explosion wiped out the Zhell city, and the Taung adopted the name Dha Werda Verda, or "The Warriors of the Shadow," when the ash cloud filled the skies for two years. (SES)

Taung Heights
located on the planet Coruscant, this section of the planet-wide city was home to a large population of Aqualish during the last decades of the Old Republic. More than 145 million Aqualish lived there, until their homeworld of Ando seceded from the Republic. A great number of the Aqualish in the Taung Heights returned to Ando to support the planet's secession. (HNN4)

Tauntaun
a cold-weather creature suitable for use as transportation, thereptomammals resembled a fur-covered iguana which runs on its hind legs and has curved, ram-like horns. Native to the planet Hoth, these creatures are often found in large herds, racing across the snowy plains on their large, three-toed feet. The four nostrils on the tauntaun's nose were uniquely chambered, warming each breath before it entered the lungs. They have strong, rough lips that allow them to scrape lichens and moss off exposed rocks for food. This is not their only source of food, for they have also been seen eating carrion and small rodents. They also have a unique elimination system, exuding oils and waste products through pores in their skin. This causes the tauntaun to eminate a distictive odor. They seek nocturnal shelter in caves and ice grottoes, since they cannot survive the harsh nighttime temperatures. The internal organs of the tauntaun were all packed tightly inside their skeletons behind layers of fat, thereby protected from the cold. They were used by the Alliance as mounts during their stay at Echo Base. To pass the time, Alliance soldiers often staged tauntaun rodeos, putting their mounts through various stunts and exercises while trying to create a comradery with the uncooperative beasts. The tauntaun has a unique, cold-resistant blood which allows it to survive on the Hoth tundra. There were at least fifteen species of tauntaun on Hoth, each having a distinct mix of reptilian and mammalian characteristics. The tauntaun, being one of the two primary creatures native to Hoth, is the favored source of food for the other, the Wampa ice creature. Female tauntauns gave birth to live young, and fed them with a form of milk they regurgitated from their stomachs. Males could also regurgitate this milk, since they used it to spit when annoyed or angered. (ESB, ISU, EGA, WSW)

this Klaatu served the New Republic as an Special Forces operative, and was assigned to discover the whereabouts of agents Krotorra and Lamorrack. He caught up with Slar-dan ti Gardi on Werncin 3, but was unable to bring the Twi'lek in. Gardi's partner, Borun Call, shot Nartal with a stun psitol, and the pair eventually sold Nartal into. (SWJ8)

Taurill
these foot-long, semi-intelligent creatures have gray fur, two legs, and four supple arms. Each of their four hands is incredibly dextrous, as are their feet, giving them a simian appearance even with their spade-shaped tail. They have beedy eyes that allow the curious creatures to survey everything. Like some insect races, the taurill have a hive mind in which each individual was linked to all others in a collective consciousness. They were discovered in the Outer Rim, but the explorer and the xenobioligist who found them were killed by Durga the Hutt in an effort to keep their existence a secret. Durga the Hutt used used a number of them as workers, and brought them with him to Coruscant. After creating a diversion, three taurill infiltrated the Information Center and stole the plans to the Death Star. (DS, EGA)

Tav Breil'lya
a cream-colored Bothan, and one of Borsk Fey'lya's top aides during the early years of the New Republic, Tav Breil'lya lacked the subtlety that Fey'lya had. This eventually cost the Bothans a measure of security during the time when Admiral Ackbar was under arrest for treason to the New Republic. Fey'lya had employed Breil'lya to be his emissary to Garm Bel Iblis' group of freedom fighters, but Breil'lya was tracked to one of their meetings by Han Solo and Lando Calrissian, who eventually persuaded Bel Iblis to rejoin the Republic. Breil'lya was a native of Kothlis, and wore his family's ornate crest on a chain around his neck. This necklace often gave his presence away, especially in public places, which was how Han and Lando recognized him on New Cov. (DFR, TLC, DFRSB)

Tavion
this Dark Jedi rose to power during the early years of the New Republic, as one of the leaders of the Disciples of Ragnos. A former apprentice of Desann, Tavion managed to survive a battle with Kyle Katarn on Bespin. She escaped, but Desann was later killed in combat with Katarn on Yavin 4. Tavion took up her former master's torch, and hoped to revive the spirit of Marka Ragnos and use the ancient Sith's power to augment her own. She had taken one apprentice, the Twi'lek Alora, before capturing Rosh Penin and converting him to the Dark Side of the Force. Although Alora was killed in combat by Jaden Korr on Taspir III, Tavion continued to move toward her ultimate goal. When she was finally ready, after acquiring a great deal of Force energy to power the Scepter of Ragnos, she traveled to Korriban to complete her mission. On the remote world, she was confronted by Jaden Korr, and challenged the young Jedi Knight to a duel. She managed to transfer the power that was stored in the Scepter to the tomb of Marka Ragnos, and the spirit rose from the dead to take control of her body. Despite the additional power she gained from being on the planet, and the power she gained from Ragnos's spirit, Tavion was defeated in combat. In order to defeat Ragnos as well, Jaden had to kill Tavion, which drove Ragnos out of her body and left him vulnerable. (JK2, JKA)

Tavira
this surname was common among human settlements found throughout in the galaxy. (GCG)

Tavira, Leonia
this small woman had a very severe demeanor. She was married to Tharil Tavira, and her strong will allowed her to quickly fill his position when he passed away. There are some who believe she had him killed, in order to obtain the title of Moff. Still others believe she killed Tharil's first wife in order to marry him. Following Tharil's death, Tavira cultivated a relationship with Harran Estillo, hoping to use him as a way to gain control of the Priamsta and the People's Liberation Battalion. Their plans were foiled when it was revealed that Plourr was the true heir to the throne of Eiattu, and she returned to take control. Leonia fled with the Star Destroyer Invidious, and gathered the support of a pirate named Kavil. Tavira maintained her contacts on Eiattu. When Leia Organa traveled to Eiattu for a diplomatic mission, Tavira obtained information on her location from Baron Laabann, and had Leia kidnapped along with Tycho Celchu. Tavira believed that the New Republic would gladly pay for Leia's freedom, but she was unaware that her agent had actually captured Winter instead of Leia. After a brief stint with Kavil's Corsairs, and with help from Sate Pestage in escaping from Axxila, Tavira started her own pirate organization. She offered Pestage to Ysanne Isard, but Isard arranged to have Pestage stolen from Ciutric before Tavira could recover her reward. She provided the military support with the Invidious, but never actually did any pirating. Once the target was neutralized, she disappeared to her lair and started planning her next move. She collected fifty percent of all the loot stolen by the pirates, which helped fund her operations. She was the target of Rogue Squadron and the New Republic, shortly after the death of Emperor Palpatine's clone on Byss. Leonia was operating from a base on Suarbi 7/5, a moon known for the Jensaarai sect of Jedi. There, she killed the moon's Imperial governor, claimed to have removed the natives from Imperial control. She alo used her persuasive skills to coerce the Jensaarai and their leader, the Saarai-kaar into believing that they must kidnap Mirax Terrik in order to draw a being known as the Halcyon - Corran Horn, a member of Rogue Squadron - into a trap. She made them believe that killing the Halcyon would eliminate a dire threat to their homeworld anf their families. She continued to make her raids, destroying the Harmzuay and gaining more control over the Jensaarai. However, Corran's infiltration into the Khuiumin Survivors led to her downfall, as he used the persona of an "avenging Jedi" to break up the Invids stationed on Courkrus. Tavira became increasing unable to handle the situation when Corran and Luke Skywalker broke into her fortress on Suarbi 7/5 and rescued Mirax. She tried to wipe out all of Suarbi 7/5 in order to kill them, but her small fleet was attacked by the Backstab and the Errant Venture. Corran also used the Force to project a much larger fleet of ships arrayed against her, and Tavira fled into hyperspace. (XWWP, IJ, HXW, XWM, XWMR)

Tavira, Tharil
this Imperial Grand Moff was dispatched to take control of Eiattu just before Uthorrferrel Cartha was unseated by the Priamsta. Although it was never proven, it was believed that his ambitious young wife, Leonia, killed him in order to obtain his position as Grand Moff. Tharil suffered a massive stroke which incapacitated him, and his allergy to bacta meant that he could not recover quickly. As soon as he regained the use of his hands, he shot himself with a blaster. (XWWP, IJ)

Tavvar Va'ran
this Kubaz was considered the second-best Kubaz chef in the Empire, shortly after the Battle of Hoth. Tavvar was also a master at combining subtle poisons with his culinary creations, using nearly untraceable elements which reacted with the natural oils and spices in the meals to create poisonous substances which themselves were unidentifiable. This made him an invaluable employee of Prince Xizor and Black Sun. As the Master Chef at the Manarai Restaurant on Coruscant, he took pride in this description because the best chef was part of Emperor Palpatine's personal staff. (SESB)

Tavya-class Armored Picket
this Hoersch-Kessel patrol ship was developed for the Old Republic during the height of the Clone Wars. Its mission profile was to use in scouting hyperspace exit points for military and diplomatic convoys, dropping out of hyperspace long enough to scan the location for Separatist ships. These ships were well-armed for their size, with a turret-mounted laser cannon and a missile launcher, and the Republic often installed an extra proton torpedo launcher underneath the fuselage for added security. (YDR)

Tawntoom Citadel
this was the vast fortress built inside the cone of a huge, inactive volcano on the planet Roon by Governor Koong. Also known as the Frozen Fortress, it was located in the area known as the Tawntoom Province. Unknown to Koong and his minions, the site on which the Citadel was built was one of Roon's greatest sources of Roonstones. When Imperial Admiral Screed reneged on a deal, Koong flew into a rage and fired his weapons on the Citadel, in an effort to trap Screed inside and kill him. Screed managed to escape, however, leaving Koong with nothing but a pile of rubble. The remains of the Citadel were later chosen as the governmental facility used by the Council of Confederated Provinces. (EGP, WOTC)

TC-14
this silver protocol droid served Nute Gunray and the Neimoidians during their blockade of the planet Naboo. Frequent memory wipes kept the droid strongly loyal to the Trade Federation. It was TC-14, with her feminine personality, which greeted Qui-Gon Jinn and Obi-Wan Kenobi when they attempted to negotiate a settlement with Gunray. TC-14 was then dispatched to detain the Jedi Knights until the Neimoidians could eliminate them. TC-14 was acted by John Fenson and voiced by Lindsay Duncan in Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace. (SW1, IG1)

TC-16
this silver-plated protocol droid served Nute Gunray at his residence on Cato Neimoidia, during the last decades of the Old Republic. After Anakin Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi forced Gunray to flee the purse-world, they found a number of his possessions had been left behind in his haste to escape. In addition to the Viceroy's mechno-chair, the Jedi also discovered TC-16. The droid was removed from Cato Neimoidia and debriefed on Coruscant, before being turned over to the two Jedi as a liaison during their search for Gunray. It was TC-16 who helped them gain access to Workshop Xcan on Charros IV, where TC-16 was briefly taken aside to be realigned and polished while the Jedi talked to t'laalak-s'lalak-t'th'ak. In the wake of the experiences on Charros IV, TC-16 was sent to Coruscant for debriefing, before it was assigned to Aurek Team during the search for Darth Sidious.

T'cha, Uta
this woman was a former Sabiador slaver, and a confederate of Khzam during that time. She left the slavers to start her own business, selling and repairing droids. She found work in the planet Pitann, and eventually worked with Sho'ban Do to set up the gladiator droid wars that became popular there. She was working on a program that would allow a remote user to override a droid's control program, which Do hoped to steal and use to control his droid army.

Where Rekkon proferred to act quietly and within the system, Tchaka was impulsive and outspoken. He began to speak out at campus rallies, and was soon a major thorn in the Authority's hide. When he suddenly disappeared, Rekkon began to suspect that Tchaka was incarcerated by the Authority. This was exactly the case, for Tchaka's orations had reached the ears of Security Viceprex Mirkovig Hirken, who had placed Tchaka on his "list" of candidates for imprisonment at Stars' End. With the help of Han Solo and Chewbacca, Rekkon was able to discover the location of Stars' End, but was killed by Torm before he could rescue his nephew. After his release, and the discovery of his uncle's murder, Tchaka turned his energies to making the Authority pay for its crimes. (HSE, CSA)

Their numbers were decimated in a skirmish with Imperial forces, and she fled to Rodaj. There, she convinced some of the miners - including Ivhin Jayme and Morgan Q. Raventhorn - to join the Alliance, and she was initially placed in Starfighter Command as a pilot. Once again, T'Charek was at odds with the prescribed life of a military pilot, and she was offered a position in the Special Operations team.

Isolationist by nature, the Tchuukthai did nothing to correct the galactic impression that they were simply brutish beasts. C-3PO related one of their more romantic epics to Han Solo just before he took Leia Organa to Dathomir. It was later discovered that the Tchuukthai were the same species as the Wharl, and were actually intelligent creatures. Most beings throughout the galaxy regard the Tchuukthai as nothing more than a legend, since very few individuals were ever seen off their hidden homeworld. (CPL, EGP, WOTC, PJSB)

TDL Nanny Droid
an advanced protocol droid produced by Industrial Automaton under the brand name X1-Lioness, the TDL was designed to serve as a nanny. It has four arms covered with synthetic flesh, and its shape has been rounded to make it less dangerous to children. It was equipped with an AA-1 VerboBrain and a TranLang III ommunications module for interaction with any number of sentient species. One of the main problems which plagued the TDL series of droids was that it was easily reprogrammed. Several reports came in about children repogramming them to allow later bedtimes and less restrictive boundaries. There were also rumors of corporate executives reprogramming TDL droid to be bodyguards and assassins, since they were comparatively cheaper than dedicated assassin droids. Note that The Essential Guide to Droids claims that the TDL was produced by Accutronics. (COTF, JASB, SWJ14, EGD)

TDL-3.5
This nanny droid was purchased from an online catalog by Anakin Solo, using the ordering code Bantha-456. Young Anakin believed that the nanny droid would help C-3PO take better care of the Solo children. The officious TDL-3.5 tried to convince C-3PO that it was better suited to care for children, especially since C-3PO was a protocol droid. However, once Anakin's part in the purchase was revealed, C-3PO sent TDL-3.5 back to the warehouse. (TNR)

this Alliance starfighter pilot was a veteran of thirty-one missions and more than eighty kills, but was kept out of the Battle of Yavin by a case of the measles. Luke Skywalker flew his X-Wing during the battle, and Jal felt cheated out of his chance for glory every since. His feelings toward Luke bordered on hatred, and Jal stole an X-Wing in an effort to prove his own worth. In his haste, he crashed the fighter into a grove of trees, and was arrested by the Alliance's military police. General Dodonna offered him one option: travel to Dubrava and act as a recruiter. Jal took the position, if only to get away from Luke. While on Dubrava, Jal offended a young Dubravan named Bobek by tricking him into falling off a deck during a mock training exercise. He also told Nevana about Luke traveling to Jazbina, in a drunken fit of rage. She told Sarma of the information, and Sarma rounded up the local Imperial stormtroopers. When they tried to catch her and get more information on Skywalker's location, she confronted Jal about the information. Nevana was shot by a stormtrooper before she could say anything more, and Jal barely escaped when the stormtroopers set the bar on fire, but was apprehended by the Imperials. Bobek intervened, having purchased a blaster and vowing to kill Jal, but was shot by a stormtrooper. Jal felt that their deaths were his own fault, and fled Dubrava in an old X-Wing purchased from a Dubravan dealer. He hoped to get to Jazbina before the Empire, in order to warn Luke of the danger he'd caused. When he dropped out of hyperspace, Jal's ship collided with Vader's Star Destroyer, and Jal was forced to crash-land. However, he was able to discover Luke's location just before Darth Vader did, though he fled when Vader captured Luke and Syayna's rebels. Jal didn't run, though. Instead, he flew his starship into the belly of Vader's Star Destroyer and crashed it into the ship at full speed. The Star Destroyer exploded, and Vader's troops were stranded on the planet. (VQ)

Since the decline of Gree civilization, Te Hasa has become a storehouse for devices and technologies that they no longer understand or have forgotten how to use. It is a desert world, and the storehouses of devices are located beneath the many oases that dot the landscape. These storehouses are maintained by a close-knit community of Gree which are hoping to unlock the many secrets contained within the devices. A day on Te Hasa lasts about 29 standard hours, and its year encompasses 296 local days. (SWJ8)

this was the codename of the infiltration team headed by the Ho'Din scientist Meloque, which infiltrated the planet Caluula more than four years after the Yuuzhan Vong began their invasion of the galaxy. Meloque had the credentials of a scientist who had been studying the Nocturne of the Winged-Stars, allowing her to gain access to the planet. Along with her were Han and Leia Organa Solo, Kyp Durron, Judder Page, and Wraw. Their mission was simple: destroy the yammosk which had been installed on Caluula, in an effort to knock out the Yuuzan Vong's possible coordination of a massive assault on Calamari. Despite only seeing a single patrol andd just one surveillance biot, the events that occurred after their arrival led Team Meloque to believe that it was being led into a trap. This fear proved true when the Team was ambushed by four Slayers, who killed Sasso and Ferfer before incapacitating Han Solo and taking the survivors captive. Meloque was able to interpret for the captives, until Malik Carr arrived to personally take them into custody. Unfortunately for the Yuuzhan Vong, something about Caluula's environment caused them to weaken and die over a period of a few weeks. The process seemed to speed up as death grew nearer, as evidenced by the sudden death of Malik Carr, his guards and Slayers. Suddenly free, the Team rushed to figure out what was killing the Yuuzhan Vong and their bio-technology. Wraw was forced to reveal that his primary mission as part of Team Meloque was to verify the effectiveness of a new strain of the Alpha Red virus which was released on Caluula, to verify that it was still as potent as originally believed.

Led by Wat Tambor, the Techno Union's members produced some of the galaxy's most cutting-edge technologies during the years leading up to the Clone Wars. The Techno Union was also one of the loudest supporters of the Trade Federation, following on the Federation's coattails whenever legislation involving trade was mentioned in galactic politics. Using tactics developed by the Trade Federation, the Techno Union demanded the right to protect its various members from external attack, and was given license to develop a droid army to defend itself. This army was added to the growing forces of Count Dooku and the Separatists just before the Battle of Geonosis, when Wat Tambor agreed to join the Confederacy of Independent Systems. (COD, SWDB)

this unstable star formed the center of the Teedio System, which was noted as the location of Exis Station. Teedio had been stable for many millennia, but started to deteriorate during the last centuries of the Old Republic. As the star began to give off rare and unusual gases and elements, miners began taking over parts of Exis Station to serve as bases for their operations. Eventually, Teedio grew too dangerous, and the mining efforts were abandoned. Luke Skywalker and Tionne were later responsible for moving Exis Station to a safer orbit, keeping it away from Teedio and allowing parties to explore the station. At the start of the New Republic, Teedio belched solar flares and heavy radiation into space every nine years or so, giving exploration teams and investigators a chance to escape before subsequent flares created problems.

When Teedle realized that the force-dome that protected the Rimsoo Seven base required a specialized power unit, she found that her own YX-90 drive unit was compatible with that of the force-dome. Rather than see her patrons killed, Teedle volunteered to be deactivated, and donated the YX-90 to the technicians. (MJH)

The average teek had close-set black eyes, buck-teeth, and pointed ears with tufts of white fur on them. Despite their appearance, teeks were semi-intelligent, and could communicate with other beings, albeit with great difficulty. The Ewoks avoided the teeks at all costs, considering them sure signs of trouble ahead. They were the packrats of the moon's forests, taking shiny trinkets and tokens and exchanging them for something of equal value. For many, the teek's idea of what was equal in value was often skewed. At the time of the Battle of Endor, there were very few teeks living in the forest. (BFE, ISU, SWDB)

Teek
for lack of a better name, this was the name used by one of the Teeks on the Forest Moon of Endor.

Six days before the Tarhassan government opted to join the Confederacy of Independent Systems, Teeks disappeared. A mission team, gathered from untrained agents picked from various low-level Republic agencies, was put together to rescue him. Led by Cherek Tuhm, the team included Tinian Hanther, Livintius Sazet, Joram Kithe, and Mapper Gann. While Tuhm and his fellow administrators labored over plan details, Joram and Mapper simply went out and hunted Teeks down. They discovered that he had been abducted by Tarhassan Planetary Security while eating at Corgan's Gustatorium, and had not been betrayed by his lover, Zazana Renkel. The pair convinced their teammates to launch a daring rescue attempt, which succeeded in liberating Teeks from prison.

Teeth of Tatooine
also known as the Valley of the Wind, this is a smooth-floored gulley near Jabba the Hutt's palace. The Hutt used it to punish those beings that deserved a quicker death than the Sarlacc pit, allowing them to dream up images of fanged monsters before realizing their position. In fact, the Teeth of Tatooine are wind-blown chips of desert sandstone and silica. The being is tied to the valley floor just past dawn, with leather hides wrapped and tied around each limb. As the temperature rises, the winds pick up and the victim begins to sweat. The sweat loosens the leather briefly, giving the victim reason to struggle. However, the leather simply tightens as it rubs the victim's skin raw and bleeding. The valley is situated such that great gusts of wind rip through it, pushed by the intensely-changing temperatures. The winds pick up small flechettes of stone and propel them through the valley, but the weight of the stones keeps them low to the ground. The stones have been sharpened by scraping along other stones, and become tooth-like knives. The wind-driven stones flay the victim alive. (TBH)

She was strong-willed and stubborn, and was often forced to submit to the demands of Danni Quee. She was one of the many ExGal people who took recreational intoxicants to alleviate the boredom of listening for extra-galactic activity, a practice despised by Danni Quee. When their sensors noticed a huge storm brewing on the planet, she led a group out to scout the storm. However, they discovered the Belkadan had become an ecological wasteland, thanks to the dweebit beetles unleashed by Yomin Carr. Bendodi Ballow-Reese, a member of the search group, realized that they would never make it back to ExGal-4, and committed suicide so that his oxygen could be used by the remaining members. Soon, just Tee-ubo and Jerem Cadmir were left. Tee-ubo realized that both would never make it, and she gave Jerem her oxygen pack and allowed the noxious atmosphere to destroy her. (VP)

He made a living helping the moisture farmers repair their equipment, but was forced into hiding when an ignorant farmer misused a piece of equipment Tek had repaired. It blew up, and so did the farmer, and a bounty was placed on Tek's head. Shortly after the Battle of Endor, Tek rescued Grissom and Arista Kabul from an attack by Arista's uncle, Seth. Grissom devised a plan to turn in Tek for the 12,000-credit bounty on his head, then Grissom and Arista blasted the little alien out of prison. Before leaving Otunia, Arista planned to meet with her Uncle Seth in order to remove the ankle restraint she was wearing. As payback for his murder of her father, Arista used the bounty money to purchase explosives. Employing Tek's knowledge of explosives and Grissom's knowledge of the mines, Arista placed bombs throughout the mines. She then confronted Seth, demanding that he remove the ankle bracelet that was keeping her tied to Otunia. As payback for the murder of her father, Arista then set off Tek's bombs, utterly destroying the mines and leaving Seth - and Kabul Industries - without anything. (T3)

Tek Swee
literally meaning "head hitter", this was the Ewok name for a trap in which a heavy log was suspended on rope-like vines from a sturdy tree. When released, the log swung down and out from its holding position, crashing into anything in its path. The Ewoks originally developed the tek swee to ambush the Gorax, but pairs of tek swee were used with great success against Imperial AT-ST walkers during the Battle of Endor. (GMR9)

Tekar
this sprawling meglopolis was the largest city found on the Derilyn, and was the site of Derilyn Space Central, the planet's central spaceport authority. (PG3, OE)

Tekba

Teke Ro
the blue giant star which is the primary sun of the planet Cona. (SCRE, GG4)

Tekkirl, Flinor
this Alliance scout joined the rebellion a few years before the Battle of Yavin. He searched for worlds which were removed from Imperial notice, yet capable of supporting life. He was very good at his work, but preferred to work alone. He was given the command of the Atrivis Advancer for his scouting missions. (CRO)

Teklet
this settlement, located on the planet Qiilura, was the site of a major depot and the only spaceport on the planet, during the last years of the Old Republic. The Separatist forces that took control of Qiilura used it as their primary export location for barq and kushayan grains, as well as military materiel. Much of the city, including the primary communications center, was destroyed by the clone commandos of Omega Squad, during their mission to capture Ovolot Qail Uthan and destroy her clone-killing nanovirus. (RCHC)

Tekli
this Chadra-Fan was a student of the Force at Luke Skywalker's Jedi praxeum on Yavin 4, training under the tutelage of Cilghal during the Yuuzhan Vong invasion of the galaxy. During the Yuuzhan Vong invasion of the galaxy, Tekli assisted Cilghal on the Eclipse Project before joining the strike team which went to Myrkr to destroy the voxyn queen. She was one of the survivors of the mission to Myrkr, and returned to the planet Calamari to rejoin Cilghal after the loss of Coruscant to the Yuuzhan Vong. Later, when the Imperial Remnant was attacked and Bastion was destroyed, Tekli developed a deep friendship with Saba Sebatyne, who had discovered an ability to read a being's lifesigns through the Force. When Luke Skywalker launched a mission to locate the planet Zonama Sekot, Tekli was assigned to his task force as a healer and medic. Her skills were put to use in an unusual way almost as soon as the mission got started, when Tekli found herself struggling to keep Imperial Grand Admiral Gilad Pellaeon alive after the Jedi stumbled upon the Battle of Bastion. After the Yuuzhan Vong finally surrendered at Coruscant some five years after the invasion began, Tekli decided to stay on Zonama Sekot with Tahirir Veila, the Ferroans, and the Yuuzhan Vong. She hoped to learn more about the ways in which Yuuzhan Vong Shapers worked with various lifeforms, in an effort to discover new ways to help cure beings throughout the galaxy. (BP, SBS, FH1, UF)

Teklos
this is the civilian version of Nen-Carvon's heavy-duty mobile command base. It differed from the base military model in locomotion: the Teklos vehicle was equipped with repulsorlift engines, where the mobile command base had treads. However, despite its commercial goals, the Teklos vehicle found its way into the fleets of pirates and criminal organizations. Like the mobile command base, it measured 21.8 meters in length, and carried a crew of 5 and up to seven passengers. It was armed with a turret-mounted triple-laser cannon and a pair of concussion grenade launchers. (GG11)

Tekonite
this substance was unique in that it vaporized when bombarded by kinetic energy. Thus, it could be used to sublimate the effects of a collision, as it could absorb some 92 percent of the kinetic energy developed in a crash. (BI)

Teksa
this was one of the many Twi'leki clans which were native to the planet Ryloth. In the Twi'leki language, the clan's name meant "trustworthy". (GCG)

Tel
this was the name most often used to describe the planet Tel III. (FBS)

Tel
this small, white dwarf star was the central body of the Tel System, located in Brak Sector. The system was known as the Green System because it was actually a planetary nebula, and the star's light made the gases of the nebula appear to glow with a greenish light. (FBS)

Tel Bollin
this was considered the only true city found on the planet Endregaad, during the early years of the New Order, although Tel Bollin was really just a collection of small settlements and outposts. Like all other settlements on Endregaad, the constituent parts of Tel Bollin were located atop mesas and plateaus, and they were grouped together based on the fact that they shared the same bottomland formation. Located near the center of the city was a collection of pre-Republic ruins, but they were largely unexplored because of local legends that claimed banshees roamed the area and killed any beings they encountered. (TF)

Tel I
this was the innermost planet of the Tel System, located in Brak Sector. It was a small ball of hot rock. (FBS)

Tel II
this was the second planet of the Tel System, located in Brak Sector. It was a small ball of hot rock. (FBS)

Tel III
this remote planet, located in Brak Sector, was the site of the Alliance's Oracle Base, which was established shortly before the Battle of Yavin. The planet itself was a ball of ash-covered rock which was crumbling to dust as it aged. Because of the planet's location within the planetary nebula, the skies of Tel III were greenish in color. (FBS)

Tel IV
this planet was covered with dense rainforests. (COG)

Tel IV
this frozen ball of rock was the fourth, and outermost, planet in the Tel System of Brak Sector. Note that this planet seems to be different than the Tel IV described in Creatures of the Galaxy. (FBS)

this was one of many settlements found on the planet Bakura. (EGP)

Telak, Kird
this former Imperial scout served the Navy for six years before he became bored with his work. He fled Imperial service and, using the knowledge of trade routes and transportation schedules, became a pirate. The ability to ambush a ship and make off with its cargo came naturally to Telak, who was known to take a number of risks and still come out ahead. He continued to get bored, bu this only served to push him into more and more daring thefts. He is quite obvious in a crowd, with a crown of fuzzy black hair, expensive clothing which has been carefully aged, and a thin goatee and moustache. (TSK)

Telak's Terrors
this pirate group, led by the charismatic Kird Telak, operated from a based in the underground caves of the planet Seltaya. The base itself is located about 100 meters below the surface of the planet, and is sensor- and enegry-shielded. No external armaments are employed by the pirates, since the only visible evidence of the base are the launch bay doors and the sensor arrays. (TSK)

Telanka System
this star system, situated in the Outer Rim Territories, was the location of the Vessar Asteroid Belt. (HAS)

Telar
this was the largest of the three moons which orbited the planet Goroth Prime. (GSE)

Telari, Coros
this was the false ID of Pellas Agri, an agent of House Pelagia who worked as a troublemaker and spy for much of his life. His father had died in a House Mecetti prison, unjustly arrested for a crime he didn't commit. This left young Agri with a burning hatred of House Mecetti. He was attacked by a group of thugs from House Mecetti on Lamuir IV, shortly after the Battle of Yavin. Telari had stolen a datafile from Mecetti, and was hoping to return it to his Pelagia masters. A team of Alliance agents, hoping to meet Trel Modetto aboard the Eternal Hope, were directed to the site of the attack by Janna Pallask. Their efforts in defeating the thugs saved Telari's life. He spent a great deal of time in a bacta, but owed a debt of gratitude to the Alliance agents. (TSIA)

Telatti
this sweet, tasty fruit was grown on the planet Kattada. (SWEP)

Telbre, Evin
this bounty hunter was a rival of the noted smuggler Balthazar Sim. During the height of the Galactic Civil War, Telbre discovered Sim had been involved in trying to cover up the effects of a stolen shipment of the drug platykona-zemlo-mobris, known on the street as "pleaz-mo". Telbre decided that it was time to shut down Sim's operation once and for all, and set out to bring him to justice. Sim, several years before, had been implicated in covering up a conspiracy on the planet Coruscant by causing an explosion which destroyed the evidence. The explosion also killed one of Telbre's friends, and Telbre set out to avenge the friend's death. Although he never found out what the actual conspiracy was, he continued to track down Sim. Telbre also worked on his own legitimate shipping business, which served as a front which he used to help transport slaves who escaped from Hutt Space. Telbre eventually tracked Sim to Aucellis Park on Keriba VI, using the transmission from a brooch Sim had once stolen. After a wild chase beneath the Cavern's Delight attraction, Telbre and the mercenaries he hired met up with Sim and his commander, Hoogi Grym. Grym managed to escape, leaving Sim to be captured. (WOA27)

TelBrinTel
this droid manufacturer produced a variety of scientific droids for civilian and military use. (SWJ13)

TelBrinTel Science Research Droid
this boxy, humanoid droid was developed by TelBrinTel after the Empire commissioned the corporation to create a weapons and armor research automaton. The SRD was given a monocular eyepiece which contained a powerful molecular microscope, and its endosystem was designed to accept a wide variety of dockable implements. For the most part, the SRD was delivered to Imperial research facilities shortly after the Battle of Hoth. A few individuals, such as the infamous droid known as Geth, were stolen by the Alliance. (SWJ10)

Telbun
this Kuati term describes a group of selected middle class individuals used as breeders for the Kuati upper classes. Certain members of middle class families are chosen to begin training to be a telbun, which involves rigorous screening and intense education in a wide variety of subjects. When an upper class noble chooses a telbun - there are male and female telbun - the individual becomes the property of the upper class. The telbun's family is well-compensated, but cannot claim any of the upper classes' riches. The child of the union then becomes the heir to the upper class riches. The goal of this arrangement was to remove emotion from the creation of a child, while at the same time eliminating the senseless joining of upper class families through marriage. The telbun is subordinate to its mate, and is made to wear heavy red and purple robes that hide their bodies from the public eye. They must wear tall, starched collars and high, cylindrical hats. (WG)

Teldanus
this was the second-tallest mountain peak located on Goroth Prime, rising some 7,350 meters tall. It was located on the planet's western hemisphere. Its name translated into Basic as the "Overlook." (GSE)

Teleq
this bounty hunter was part of a group of hunters hired by Granta Omega to capture Obi-Wan Kenobi, Anakin Skywalker, and Wren Honoran on Ragoon-6, some five years after the Battle of Naboo. Teleq was known among other bounty hunters for his skilled use of technology in locating and capturing his targets. Teleq himself was a humanoid being with long limbs and hooked fingers and toes, giving him incredible mobility in trees and complex structures. It was Teleq who first captured Wren Honoran, using the Jedi pilot as bait to capture Obi-Wan and Anakin. (JQ2)

Telezan
a depressant drug. (COJ)

Telfrey
this planet, located in the Iskalon system, was depopulated by the Empire in order to secure the planet for their own usage, after it was discovered that rebellious individuals were stirring up the population. The survivors of the mass killings, both human and Telfreyan, eventually joined the Alliance, as the surface of their homeworld was reduced to molten slag by an Imperial bombardment. Historians later discovered that the Imperial attack on Telfrey was an act of retribution for the actions of Tay Vanis and Yom Argo on Iskalon. (LTA6, MC74, GMR1)

Telfreyan
this was the primary, sentient race which was native to the planet Telfrey. Like their human neighbors, the Telfreyans were forced to flee the planet when the Empire subjugated the world. The Telfreyans were a race of green-skinned amphibians, with fin-like ears and a thick spray of bone sprouting from their foreheads. (MC74)

Telgordo Travel
this passenger transport corporation provided luxury and standard-class tranportation for the inhabitants of Trax Sector, during the Galactic Civil War. (GMK)

Telgordo's Pride
this Telgordo Travel starliner was based out Bundim, and made regular runs in Trax Sector during the Galactic Civil War. The team of Alliance agents investigating the construction of an Imperial supply depot in the Bissillirus System were forced to book passage on this ship in order to bypass the Imperial blockade of Bundim and return to Draenell's Point. The only reason they were able to book passage on the ship was that a group of anti-Imperial rebels had hijacked the ship a week before. Although not officially affiliated with the Alliance, the hijackers pretended the Alliance team was a group of tourists in order to get past the Imperial blockade of Bundim. (GMK)

Telgorn Corporation

Telik
this Imperial Major served as the commander of Colonel Vessery's ground assault forces, during the early years of the New Republic. After Ysanne Isard took control of General Arnothian's TIE Defender operation and began plotting the destruction of Prince-Admiral Krennel, Telik's forces were called upon to assist Rogue Squadron in the infiltration of the planet Ciutric. Unknown to the New Republic, Telik was the agent on Commenor who provided Iella Wessiri with a holdout blaster, after she was captured by agents in the law offices of Wooter, Rimki, and Vass. Telik was impressed with Iella's ability to escape the situation. The Rogues, in the guise of Antar Roat's experimental flight group, agreed to "defect" to join Krennel, while Telik's team worked on the ground to bring down Ciutric's defenses. Telik's team was also in charge of rescuing the prisoners who were held on the Lusankya. (IR)

Teljkon System
the planetary system in which the wandering starship known as the Teljkon vagabond was first sighted. (BTS)

Teljkon Vagabond
the name given to the mysterious, 1,500-meter starship that was discovered bouncing around the galaxy about five years before the Yevethan Great Purge. A Hrasskis monitor ship discovered it there, but was unable to track it. The New Republic frigate Boldheart also encountered the ship and tried to stop it, but was disabled by the vagabond. When the vagabond showed up near Gmar Askilon about thirteen years after the Battle of Endor, Hiram Drayson and Alpha Blue got involved. They sent a fleet of ships, under the joint command of Pakkpekatt and Lando Calrissian, to Gmar Askilon to intercept it. They found the vagabond to be a five-hulled cratf resembling a raft. It appeared to be lashed together with huge, organic-looking cables. Its outer hull was translucent and apparently organic. The vagabond maintained a twelve-kilometer distance around itself via hidden sensors, and transmitted a high-pitched signal to any ship which entered the twelve-kilometer zone. If the ship didn't properly respond immediately, the vagabond would shoot to disable it while the vagabond jumped into hyperspace. Lando Calrissian, Lobot, R2-D2, and C-3PO discovered that the initial code being sent by the vagabond represented a subset of the Qella genetic code, and sent the remaining code back to the vagabond. They were admitted within the secure zone, and allowed to enter the outer hull. The ferret ship D-89 tried to enter the secure zone with the same code, but the vagabond had switched to another code. It destroyed the ferret and jumped into hyperspace. Once left to their own devices, Lando's team discovered that the vagabond's hull was constantly adjusting itself, and was able to repair small breeches by simply closing the gap. Along a section of the inner hull, a huge mural depicted thousands of Qella. The interior walls reacted to physical touch, and various responses were garnered from the ship's many rooms. Many rooms had special keys or sigils in the walls which, when touched, produced Qella music or changed the room's color, shape, or musical sounds. The chemical make-up of the rooms could be altered seemingly at will, with various pores extracting and introducing the gases necessary for its inhabitants to breathe. Any room entered by its normal portal would react to the entrance by turning on lights. It was later discovered, by Lobot, that the vagabond was actually a huge musuem carrying thousands upon thousands of Qella ideas, stories, and data on how to rebuild the Qella race. The ship had been launched when the planet Brath Qella suddenly was plunged into an ice age, in order that the Qella could survive the cataclysm in stasis, until their planet was habitable again. Much of the ship mirrors the Qella genetic makeup, from its internal structures to the base-six algorithms which run it (and are based on the Qella genetic code). The ship was designed with the idea that, after the planet had managed to survive the loss of its moons, the vagabond would return to Brath Qella and restart the evolutionary process. When the vagabond did eventually return - with Calrissian, Lobot, R2-D2, and C-3PO still inside - it allowed Luke Skywalker to join them. Luke's mastery of the Force allowed him to commune with the ship, bypassing the base-six algorithms which baffled Lobot and telling it to let them all go. It then began the laborious process of thawing out Brath Qella and making it habitable again for the thousands of Qella buried under the ice. (BTS, SOL, TT)

Telk, Rab
this man lived in The Clog, on the planet Chazwa, and despised Hahz Fallone for hoarding the wealth of the city. (ND)

Telkadis
this was a forested planet. (COG)

Telkadis Hiding Tree Spider
native to the taku forests of Telkadis, this unusual predatory insect made its home deep inside the wood of the taku. Outwardly, the trees appeared healthy, but inside the tree spiders had carved out their own nest. The females of the species used powerful claws and pincers to dig through the taku to lay their eggs, and then the males followed them in to fertilize them. While in the process of fertilization, the male tree spider emitted a kind of humming sound, which was the only indication that a specific taku tree was infected with spiders. These tree spiders ambushed rodents, such as the volete, when they got too close to the taku tree, injecting the rodents with a potent venom that killed the volete and allowed the spiders to feed on the carcass. These spiders were a nuisance to the loggers and foresters of Telkadis, who would cut down a seemingly healthy tree only to discover a nest of stinging insects. (COG)

Tell, Toria
this woman, a native of the planet Tebru, was a noted droid inventor and collector. Toria, who trusted machines more than humans, maintained one of the galaxy's largest collection of rare automata and ancient robotic texts. During the height of the Galactic Civil War, she produced a private scandoc which discussed the latest developments in droid technology. (SWJ10)

Tellaro, Arkle
this small-time smuggler was captured by the Corellian Security Force during the Galactic Civil War. Arkle went native after a raid on Velx-Shel, but returned to piloting in an effort to earn and spend his credits. He was captured on a routine run. (HAS)

Telling of the Story
this Kitonak ritual is performed at the end of their day. A single story is created by the adult Kitonaks, with plot twists and stroylines designed to teach the younger Kitonaks the virtues of patience. The story itself is often told in chapters, with each Telling consuming one chapter. (GG4)

Telona
this was the fourth month of the Tapani local calendar, which mapped almost directly to the Coruscant local calendar. (PGT)

Telos
this planet was known for its technological innovations, much of which was developed in the centuries following the Great Sith War. During the Sith War, the planet was sundered by Darth Malak, and much of its surface was destroyed. Left alone, Telos regenerated itself into a beautiful world, with many natural wonders which drew a steady tourist trade, as well as a great deal of commerce. About twelve years before the Battle of Naboo, the former Jedi Knight Xanatos turned the planet upside down by scheming to rape it of its resources in return for personal power. Only the intervention of Qui-Gon Jinn and Obi-Wan Kenobi thwarted Xanatos' plans, and helped return the planet to its rightful government. (DR, DOR, SWDB)

Telos-4
this Outworld planet was the site of the Anglebay medical station during the Galactic Civil War. The planet remained neutral during the conflict, and treated the injured of both the Empire and the Alliance. It was attacked, and its droid and organic staff executed, by Valance the bounty hunter shortly after the Battle of Yavin. It was here that Beilert Valance was cyborged in an effort to save his life, after an Alliance serial torpedo destroyed his platoon. He left the planet a smoking lump of rock. (MC16, SWMW)

Telosian
this was the name used to describe the human natives of the planet Telos. (DOR)

Telowe, Arden
this lanky man operated Mos Eisley's Desert Survey Office during the height of the New Order. He lived in the office in between expeditions into the desert, always in search of scrap or salvage. Despite his efforts to explore as much of the desert as he could, Telowe never updated the official map in the Desert Survey Office. He kept many locations, such as smugglers' hideouts and possible mining locations, to himself, often selling them to the local Hutt crimelords. During the Galactic Civil War, Telowe found himself the object of an intense search, ostensibly led by his long-lost sister, Masda. However, Masda turned out to be his former wife, whom he had left on Esseles with a huge debt to repay. Masda hired a group of bounty hunters to trail her after she hired some local guides to help track down Telowe. The scouts managed to find him in a canyon cave, and he was forced to accede to Masda's demands or be killed on the spot. (GMR7)

Telowe, Masda
this woman claimed to be Arden Telowe's long-lost sister, and hired a group of scouts to help her locate him in the deserts of Tatooine, during the height of the Galactic Civil War. In reality, Masda was Telowe's former wife, and was searching for him to exact a measure of revenge for leaving her. Masda was a native of Esseles, and claimed that Telowe had left her with a failing business and heavy debts. When the scouts agreed to help her, thinking that she was simply looking for her "brother," Masda then hired a group of bounty hunters to follow them into the desert, in order to ensure Telowe didn't escape. (GMR7)

Telsor
this Corellian Gunship was part of the Alliance fleet sent to Bakura following the Battle of Endor. (TBSB)

Telti
this desert moon orbits an unspecified world far from the galactic community. It has no atmosphere and supports no known life, but was a source of many different metals and ores needed throughout the galaxy. A mining colony was established on Telti, with special environment domes allowing the miners to exist on the moon. The mining colony supported the Empire only under duress, and went bankrupt after the Battle of Endor. Years later, Brakiss established a droid manufacturing facility there, funded by Dolph and structured to produce droids which would explode when hidden detonators were triggered by a remote signal. It was on Telti that Cole Fardreamer, with the help of R2-D2 and C-3PO, exposed Brakiss' part in Dolphs' plans. Brakiss fled the moon, rather than face the New Republic and Luke Skywalker. Luke Skywalker and Brakiss met several years later on Telti, in an attempt to come to terms with each other. The meeting was a failure, and opened the rift between them even farther. (TNR, JUS)

Teltiar Noodles
this form of noodles could be slightly undercooked, for a crunchy texture, or cooked through for a softer feel in the mouth. (HNN5)

Teltier Noodles

Teltior
this alien race was native to the planet Merisee, in the Elrood Sector. They resemble their neighbors, the Meri, in nearly every aspect, including their blue skin color and webbed fingers. The Teltiors, however, lack the large brow ridge present on the Meris. Both races lived on their own continent for much of their early history, separated by vast oceans. During the period of history known as "The Joining," the two continents were joined by a finger of mountains, and the two races were able to discover each other. However, instead of friendship, the Meris offered the Teltiors war, and the two races battled for a thousand years before Merisee was discovered by the Old Republic. Realizing that their own struggle was nothing compared to the galactic struggle, the Meri and the Teltiors eventually united to form a single group called the Loag. The Teltiors were also more willing to leave Merisee and travel throughout the galaxy, and many found success as traders or merchants. Although they chose not to brag about it, Teltiors also produced some of the galaxy's most successful conmen. (PG3, AE)

Teluron Thacker
this humanoid worked for many years as a secret operative for the Jedi Knights, during the last decades of the Old Republic. He had seen the compassion of the Jedi when his homeworld of Eeyyon needed assistance, and he resolved himself to help them out in any way possible. After he made several accounting mistakes in his regular job, Thacker found himself shipped off to Korriban, ostensibly to establish a new branch location. However, the assignment on the remote world was a punishment for his actions, and Thacker knew it. When the Jedi contacted him about finding information on Granta Omega's arrival on Korriban, Thacker agreed to help. However, years of living on the desolate planet had hardened Thacker's soul. Rather than fully helping the Jedi, he set them up to be captured or destroyed by the Sith Lord who was commanding Omega's actions. He ostensibly provided the Jedi with a borrowed airspeeder to reach the Valley of the Dark Lords, but then turned to the local police force and claimed that the speeder had been stolen. (JQ10)

Tem Eliss
this Iyra from F'tral became a prominent and respected professor at the University of Sanbra. His lectures were always in demand, and students were consistently filling the auditoriums. He was very demanding of his students, but was fair and impartial. However, Eliss was also strongly anti-Imperial in his politics, and often spoke out about the rights of alien species. His manuscript, The University of Sanbra Guide to Intelligent Life, was written to provide cultural guidelines and to detail the goals and motivations of the species of the galaxy. He tried to remain neutral in his writing, but the Galactic Civil War and Palpatine's pro-human policies often colored his words. COMPNOR tried to halt publication of the document and detail Eliss, but Eliss fled into hiding. He was not seen again on Sanbra, although there have been rumors that Eliss joined the Alliance. The document itself began to appear on student computer networks, and eventually was distributed to over 25,000 nodes on 5,000 worlds. (GG12)

Tema
this Galacian woman was an artisan who was married to the healer Rowi, and was Elan's mother. She was known as a restless spirit to the Hill People, and often traveled to Galu to see the "outside world." During one of her trips, she fell in love with King Cana, and they were briefly married outside of her life with Rowi. She conceived a child by Cana, but kept the child's true parentage a secret when her marriage to Cana was annulled. She raised Elan as Rowi's daugther, but knew in her heart that Elan was Cana's daughter and heir. (MOC.)

this man was the owner of Hadlress Defense Systems, Ltd., until he sold the corporation for 4.6 billions credits. He then went into the bounty hunting business, preferring to put his knowledge to more "practical" use. (GG10)

Temm, Miat
this woman was a member of Admiral Pellaeon's civilian staff, and was assigned to greet Leia Organa Solo on Bastion when the New Republic first asked for the assistance of the Imperial Remnant in combatting the Yuuzhan Vong. Leia discovered that Miat was Force-sensitive, and adept at blocking off her mind from other Force users. (DTR)

Temolak
this alien race, native to the arid world of Zirulast, scavenged their home system and neighboring systems for derelict starships and other materials to help bring credits home to their underdeveloped society. The Temolaks were known to deal primarily with low-tech races, preferring to use any advantage they could find to maintain their control. During the last days of the Old Republic, Temolak salvage crews often engaged in bloody conflicts for the rights to certain locations. These skirmishes led to the formation of the Temolak Salvage Consortium. However, then the Empire discovered the Temolak, the aliens quickly fled into the Outer Rim in order to avoid the Imperial laws and taxes which were imposed on them. The average Temolak stood just over two meters in height, and was a heavily-muscled being with reddish skin. Their faces were distinguished by the short horns which sprouted from their cheeks, as well as the fanlike ridges along their chins. As a people, the Temolak were quiet and timid, but could be resourceful and crafty when needed. Most Temolaks lived to be more than 100 years of age. (UANT)

Temolish
this was the native language of the Temolak race. (UANT)

Temora
this businessman was a native of Tun Wala, on Arda-2. He was against the selling of T-6 diodems to the Alliance, and refused Luke Skywalker's request to have a protection system developed to protect Alliance starfighters against Imperial ships which used after-market diodems. He was one of the city's executives. (CSWEA)

Tempay
this is one of Gacerian's moons. It orbits the planet 180 degrees from the position of its sister moon, Fortay. The two pass completely around Gacerian once every 37.5 days. It was the site of an Imperial scout base, which was maintained even after the Battle of Endor. Loctaed at the moon's north pole, the base lies directly on the terminus line. Thus, it can monitor the planet below, and the open space beyond, from a single location. (PG2)

Temperance
this was one of many sleek-hulled destroyers produced at the Contruum shipyards, during the early years of the New Republic. (UF)

Tempest
this was a form of spice developed on Nar Shaddaa and produced on Varl by Mika the Hutt, during the early years of the New Order. Purple in color, it was noted for the way it provided a user with increased willpower and physical strength, but these enhancements came at a heavy price. Habitual users experienced a loss of self-control and sanity, and many died from the addiction. The addictive properties of tempest were stronger even than those of glitterstim, andris, or carsunum, and a single use was often all that was needed to form an addiction. Upon ingesting tempest, a user experienced a sensation not unlike having hot knives driven into the brain, which released a torrent of pleasurable emotions. In many cases, this was following a period in which the user felt invulnerable, and often went into a murderous rage to prove it. Addicts were easily distinguished by the spiderwebs of darkened blood vessels that were visible through their skin. Within months of its introduction, tempest had swept through Nar Shaddaa, collecting addicts at a remarkable pace. The lower levels of the Smuggler's Moon were rife with violent gangs, and were virtually unpassable. In just a few months, tempest began sweeping the Outer Rim Territories, and entire planets fell to its addiction. It took the investigative work of Angela Krin to discovered that the source of tempest was on the planet Varl, a fact that she discovered after investigating the source of the Endregaad Plague. Raw spice was transported to Varl, where it was mutated by the addition of a virus found only on the former Hutt homeworld. This mutated spice became the basis for tempest, and was refined to create the purple drug that Mika hoped would allow him to control the galaxy. The manufacturing facility was actually a custom-built battleship known as the Tempest, which was capable of producing enough of the spice to enslave the entire galaxy. Unfortunately for Mika, the agents hired by his parent, Popara, discovered the facility on Varl and destroyed it before Mika could set his plans in motion. (TF, WOTC)

Tempest
this Victory-class Star Destroyer was nearly destroyed near Dulathia, about four years after the Battle of Endor. Under the command of Captain Emba, it was carrying the components for an ion cannon, and slipped away from the battle. It managed to reach Garos VI, where it deposited the cannon. (SWJ3)

Tempest
this immense, 750-meter-long battleship was custom-built by Mika the Hutt to serve as the primary production facility for tempest spice. The ship was constructed on the surface of the planet Varl, hidden from prying eyes. The needle-shaped vessel contained hundreds of individual rooms that were connected by winding corridors, and was divided into four main sections. The forward section contained the main tempest processing facility, while the rearmost section contained the ship's engines and power plant. In the central part of the ship, the port side contained docking bays while the starboard side was dedicated to barracks, repair facilities, and an armory. Although the Tempest was built on the surface of Varl, it was completely spaceworthy, and could take off at a moment's notice, if needed. From the Tempest, Mika planned to produce enough tempest spice to enslave much of the galaxy, thereby taking control of the galaxy for himself. However, a group of freelance agents once hired by Mika's parent, Popara, discovered the facility on Varl. Mika tried to lift off from the planet's surface, but the agents managed to commandeer the Tempest before the Hutt could escape. Rather than let the ship fall into their hands, Mika set off the ship's self-destruct sequence. The Hutt was later killed in a firefight, and the Tempest detonated in orbit around Varl. Before its destruction, the Tempest was armed with sixteen turbolasers, twenty laser cannons, eight ion cannons, and twelve tractor beam projectors. It was capable of transporting up to 1,600 passengers and 8,100 metric tons of cargo, and required a crew of 800 to operate. (TF)

Tempest Rill
this was an aggressive species of rill that was native to the planet Tatooine. (GQRG)

Tempest Squadron
this was the company name of the walker squadron which was garrisoned at the Imperial outpost on the Forest Moon of Endor, during the construction of the second Death Star. This was an unusual grouping, made up primarily of AT-St walkers, but this was necessitated by the terrain of Endor's moon. The lead AT-AT in the squadron had been refitted with speciallized programs which corrected certain weaknesses exposed at the Battle of Hoth. Many of the squadron's walkers and scouts saw action during the subjugation of the Wookiees on planet Kashyyyk. (CCG10)

Tempest-class Gunship
this gunship design was manufactured during the last century of the Old Republic. (COD)

Tempestro
this race of sapient creatures was native to the planet known as Koda's World. They are a warrior race, descended from a gentle and proud civilization. Millennia before the Galactic Civil War, the Tempestro's ancestors had a great mastery of the Force and were incredibly spiritual. This belief in a higher power, and a lack of modern technology, left them unprepared for an asteroid strike. The impact threw up a huge dust cloud which exterminated much of the Tempestro civilization. The survivors stored all their knowledge in a stone temple and eked out a meager existence. Those modern Tempestro understand that the temple is important, but have forgotten exactly why. When they were discovered by Krin Koda, he provided medicines to cure a ravaging disease. In return, the Tempestro gave him the Eye of Koda. They resemble large, winged reptiles which can glide great distances. Their heads are long and thin, dominated by sharp beaks and a bony spike projecting from the back of their skull. The edges of their wings are covered with serrated scales. Much of their current civilization is based on the trees of the planet. They are slightly telepathic, a remnant of their former ability to use the Force. During his attempt to gain the powerful Eye of Koda, Dhar Bullwin used his magic to enslave a population of Tempestro, using them to combat a gorup of scouts who were also on the trail of the Eye. (GG8)

Temp-flu
this was starfighter pilot slang for the mental state of mind which overcomes pilots shortly before their tour of duty was up. If they survived long enough, some pilots tried to ensure their continued survival by holding back and not becoming too aggressive. (MBF)

Templast
this was a specially-created form of plastisheet, what would begin to oxidize as soon as it made contact with the air. This property of templast made it ideal for coded or important messages that were confidential or secret, since they would burn up within minutes of being opened. (MJH)

Temple Atun
one of the Massassi temples on Yavin 4, Atun was left untouched by the Alliance and the Jedi Students after them. Luke Skywalker wanted to keep the temple in its deteriorated condition so that the Jedi could have a link to the Massassi on which to meditate. He often went there to be alone and reflect on the galaxy. (BTS)

Temple of Fire
one of the ancient Massassi temples on Yavin 4, it was here that Exar Kun herded all the ancient Massassi people before he drained them of all their life-energy in order to preserve his own spirit in the Dark Side of the Force. (DLS, DSSB)

Temple of Illumination
this was the primary religion of the Chalactan people. The leaders of the Temple of Illumination also served as the planetary leaders of Chalacta during the last years of the Old Republic. (HNN5)

Temple of Imynusoph
this temple was located on the planet Brentaal. (SWJ13)

Temple of Pomojema
a shrine to the god Pomojema on Circarpous V, and the resting place of the Kaiburr crystal. It is a large, black pyramid, wider than it is tall. It was built from volcanic rock, and was starting to erode when Luke and Leia found it. A statue of Pomojema is located at its center, and the Kaiburr crystal was imbedded in the statue. (SME)

Temple of Tet-Ami
this ancient edifice was located near Carthas, on the planet Benja-Rihn. It was believed to house a unique stone known as the Orb of Passage, which contained Tet-Ami's power to alter time. It was built some 4,000 years before the Battle of Naboo, to honor Tet-Ami and his actions in defending the city of Carthas from attack. However, it was lost from the public consciousness for many centuries as civilization began to coalesce around Coruscant. However, rumors of its existence, and the power of the stone hidden inside, drove Kruy Mulacks and his investigative team to excavate the site. (T13)

Temple of the Ancients
this temple was located on the Unknown World of the Rakata race, and ws believed to have been erected by the earliest of Rakatan civilizations. Subsequent generations of Rakata sealed off the Temple and worshipped it as a place of reverence, and only those Rakata who knew the correct rituals could gain access to its interior. (KOTOR)

Temple of the Beatific Razor
this violent sect of terrorists was formed among the Swokes Swokes during the early years of their membership in the Old Republic, when off-world corporations stripped Makem Te of its resources and left the planet a barren wasteland. The Congress of Caliphs had happily agreed to the offers made by these corporations, which caused a great deal of confusion among the Swokes Swokes population. Their low-tech existence was suddenly perforated by noisy machinery and uncaring aliens. Several splinter groups were formed at this time to disrupt the operations of the off-worlders, and the Temple of the Beatific Razor was perhaps the most fanatical of the lot. Led by the High Mystics, the Razor Penitents grew rapidly in strength and numbers, until they rivaled the Congress of Caliphs in power. The Caliphs requested military assistance from the Old Republic just prior to the onset of the Clone Wars, but the Republic later pulled out when the Beatific Razors eliminated their entire force. This forced the Caliphs to ally themselves with the Confederacy of Independent Systems, and the Separatist forces helped to quell the actions of the Beatific Razors for many years. (WOTC)

Temple of the Blueleaf Cluster
one of the ancient, elaborate structures found in the jungles of Yavin Four. It was nearly destroyed when Vice Admiral Pellaeon and his fleet of Imperial-class Star Destroyers attacked the temple, thinking it was the primary site of Luke Skywalker's Jedi academy. It houses a huge, crystalline object deep inside its main chamber. This crystal glows and throbs with apparent life, filling the chamber with an eerie blue light. The crystal is oily to the touch, and is charged with static electricity. There are reports that the crystal is filled with the spirits of the long-dead Massassi people, and that their faces can be seen inside the crystal. Luke and Brakiss met here during the Shadow Academy's attack on Yavin 4, but Luke was unable to sway Brakiss from the Dark Side. (GDV, DS, ISU, JUS)

Temple of the Circle
a beautiful building found in Imperial City on Coruscant, it was destroyed in the civil war which ripped the planet apart following the death of Thrawn. (DESB)

Temple of the Infinite Spirit
this H'kig fortress was established on the planet J't'p'tan, shortly after the religious sect fled Rishi. Covering more than 2,000 hectares of land, the Temple compound was made up of a complex configuration of courtyards, gardens, archways, and dormitories surrounding the main temple itself. The Temple was the first building created by the H'kig after their arrival on J't'p'tan, and was a monolith of polished stone that symbolized the teachings of H'kig. (EGP, WOTC)

Temple of the Je'ulajists
using a corrupted form of the word "geologists," the Kentra created this temple from the wreckage of the Alpha Kentrum. It was erected as a reminder to follow the tenets of Sword, Plow, and Spirit set down by Michael Tandre. (SWJ2)

Temple of the Lovers
this temple was erected by the Yuuzhan Vong on the planet Coruscant - which had been remade into a simulacrum of Yuuzhan'tar - in honor of the two gods known as the Lovers, Yun-Txiin and Yun-Q'aah. (UF)

Temple of the Modeler
this organic building was located on the planet Coruscant, after it was captured and worldshaped by the Yuuzhan Vong, and was used as a shrine by the Shapers to their god, Yun-Ne'Shel. (DW, FH2)

Temple of the Sacred Circle
this was the central building of worship maintained by the sisters of the Order of the Sacred Circle on the planet Monastery. In addition to serving a religious purpose, the Temple also provided shelter and housing for the many devotees who lived on the planet. It was a vast dome-shaped structure, sitting within a square compound. At each corner of the compound was a tall tower. Shortly after the Battle of Yavin, when Domina Tagge schemed to have Darth Vader and Luke Skywalker eliminated, Imperial forces under the command of Captain Wermis opened fire on the Temple and its surrounding campus, destroying much of the building and scattering the acolytes. (MC35, MC37)

Temple River
this river flowed from the Temple of the Je'ulajists and the Wisdom Pool to Kariish, on the planet Orellon II. (SWJ2)

Temple Road
this road traveled from the city of Kariish, on the planet Orellon II, to the Temple of the Je'ulajists. (SWJ2)

Temple Spire
this was the tallest of the towers which rose from the Jedi Temple on Coruscant, during the last decades of the Old Republic. The Temple Spire was considered the most sacred place of contemplation by the Jedi. (IWE1)

Temple Valley
this was the name given to the rift valley located near Tel Bollin, on the planet Endregaad, where a collection of pre-Republic ruins were found. When the Endregaad Plague broke out during the early years of the New Order, the valley served as a sort of refuge for those beings who had been outcast for contracting the disease multiple times. (TF)

Templeton
a Virujansian Senator rescued from Captivity by the Alliance. (RC)

Temporary Droids
this corporation was formed during the last decades of the Old Republic, to provide other businesses and private enterprises with a ready pool of droid labor for short- or long-term rental. This allowed a business to acquire a group of droids for a short period, without having to buy them outright and then sell them later on. (GMR4)

Temptation Canyon
located on the planet Sriluur, this desolate canyon was known as a home for bandigos. The Weequay population of the planet deserted the canyon and left it alone, believing it was the site of an epic battle between their god, Quay, and the evil water-nymph temptresses who lived in the pool at the deepest end of the canyon. The canyon was also known by its Weequay name, Uurutche'zediev. Many believe that the legend of Quay's battle was simply a fanciful description of the first Weequay attempt to get past the bandigos which live in the canyon, in order to get to the fresh-water spring at its end. The ancient Weequay had erected a temple midway through the Canyon, in order to help keep the water nymphs from returning and to warn travelers of their possible presence. The temple was later taken over by Ujin Voli as a base of operations. (SSR)

Tempter
also called the Endorian treesnake, the tempter lived in hollowed-out trees and rocky crevices. Once settled into a location, it would stick out its furred tongue and wag it around, as if the tongue were a wounded snake. The tongue had its own musculature and nerve center, and the tip of the tongue even semed to have eyes and a mouth, which gave it a convincing appearance. The tempter's slimy skin also gave off a tempting aroma. Whenever a scavenger came to eat the "snake," the tempter would strike at the scavenger with its long neck, grasping the scavenger and eating it whole. The body of the tempter was covered with thick mucous, which allowed it to slither across the forest floor and crawl into tight locations to hide. The bite of the treesnake is mildly poisonous, causing skin inflamation. (ISU, E1A7, EA, WSW)

Temquill, Blair
this woman was born to one of the lesser nobles of House Tagge, and led a pampered life until her father became involved in politics. He hated the Empire, and sent a large part of the family fortune to the Alliance, to help fund their efforts on Ralltiir. Unfortunately, Lord Tion took control of that planet, and the Temquill fortune was lost. Blair, suddenly plunged into near-poverty, left home and traveled to Coruscant. She took with her all the credits she could get from the remaining family funds, and traveled the galaxy under a series of pseudonyms. She visited all the best locations, traveling as inexpensively as she could while still maintaining her stature as a noble woman. (HR)

Temquill, Roridan
this man served as the Chief Executive Officer of Bisquit Baron, working for TaggeCo during the last years of the Old Republic. (HNN4)

Ten

this geological rock formation was located in the deserts of Nam Chorios, outside Hweg Shul. Ten immense crystal towers were arrayed in a loose circle. Much of the crystal was formed from Spook Crystal, giving the formation an intense power. (POT)

Ten Dorne
this Sluissi served under Admiral Ackbar during the development of the B-Wing fighter as part of Project Shantipole. She is generally credited with being one of the early developers of the shear-plane mode used to defeat a tractor beam. After barely escaping Imperial forces, she decided that being a member of the Alliance was not good for her health. She defected, and began selling information about the Alliance to the Empire shortly before the Battle of Endor. It was believed she was working at the Imperial shipyards near Vosteltig, but the yards were too well-defended to obtain better information. (WBC)

Ten Mile Plateau
a favorite tourist attraction, found in the rugged outback of the planet Ord Mantell. The bounty hunter Skorr maintained a bsae there, during the early years of the Galactic Civil War, hidden in an abandoned warehouse and loading station. After the death of Emepror Palpatine at Endor, the land surrounding the plateau was set aside as a preserve for the Mantellian Savrip. (MTS, CSW, HT)

Ten Numb
this Sullustan joined the Alliance as a starfighter gunner, and eventually earned a position as a pilot. Ten Numb served the Alliance during the Battle of Endor by piloting Blue Five as part of the Blue Squadron of B-Wings. (CCG11)

Ten Percent
this was a term used by the clone troopers of the Old Republic to describe the worst possible situation. (TCD)

Ten Valleys
this was one of the most wondrous natural formations found on the planet Alsakan. During ancient times, a group of rebellious dukes controlled the Ten Valleys and various parts of Alsakan, but there was near-continual warfare among them. When Saml Previl finally conquered the dukes of the Ten Valleys, he and his descendants were able to unite the peoples of Alsakan under one leader. (GMR9)

Tenbah Squid Pie
this seafood pie was often served with Roosha topping. (SWJ11)

Tenchl, Losk
this pudgy, middle-aged man spent most of his career in the Tapani Sector of the galaxy, jumping the mining claims made by other explorers in order to make his own money. Despite his success as a miner, Losk was a poor businessman, and lost his millions almost as soon as he stole them. Shortly before the Battle of Endor, he was set free from a House Calispa prison, after being arrested for locating the House's secret corusca gem mining operation at Coorimbus IV. (LOE)

Tend, Jylle
this woman and her husband, Sumda, were wealthy natives of the planet Alderaan, during the early years of the New Order. They purchased the orbital mansion which was once owned by Jer and Gelune Blankuna. (GMR2)

Tend, Sumda
this man and his wife, Jylle, were wealthy natives of the planet Alderaan, during the early years of the New Order. They purchased the orbital mansion which was once owned by Jer and Gelune Blankuna. (GMR2)

Tendau
this was one of the most common male names used by members of the Ithorian race. Although most Ithorian names were not used for a specific meaning, historians found that this name meant "restless" or "full of wanderlust". (GCG)

Tendau Bendan
this Ithorian was an Old Republic Senator when Queen Amidala moved for a vote of no-confidence in the abilities of Chancellor Valorum. Senator Bendan was known to be one of Valorum's main supporters, in the years leading up to the Battle of Naboo, and voted against the taxation of trade routes when the matter was put forth. In the decade which followed the Battle of Naboo, Senator Bendan was one of the loudest objectors to Chancellor Palpatine's Military Creation Act, fearing that the overt formation of a Republic-wide army would simply cause more violence rather than stop it. Note that this character's name is spelled Bendon in Cloak of Deception. (IG1, COD, CCG13, HNN4)

Tendau Nandon
this Ithorian worked for the Empire as a biologist during the height of the New Order. He found himself "recruited" into Imperial service after his desire to learn everything he could about the Mother Jungle drove him from his herdship and away from Ithor. He was partnered with Dusque Mistflier for much of her career, a position that both felt was due to Tendau's race and Dusque's femininity. In the wake of the Battle of Yavin, Tendau and Dusque were assigned as the Imperial representatives to a huge convention of zoologists and xenobiologists at The Aerie, on the planet Naboo. It was during this convention that Dusque first met Finn Darktrin, and she began to question her allegiance to the Empire. Unknown to Dusque, that was exactly what Finn wanted her to do. He then manipulated events in such a way that Tendau was arrested on the suspicion that he was an Alliance sympathizer. When a squad of stormtroopers executed Tendau for the briefest of resistance, Finn explained to her that he had been trading information with Bothan spies. Dusque decided to avenge his death by joining the Alliance. It was only months later, after the recovery of a holocron from the ancient jedi ruins on Dantooine, that Dusque discovered the truth of Tendau's death. The fact that Tendau had met with a group of Bothans just before his death was simply a coincidence Finn used to support his backstory. (ROD)

Tendd
this Imperial Moff was in control of the planet Bethal when the apocia tree population was nearly destroyed by greddleback insects. His declaration of the planet as a disaster world helped gain valuable Imperial funds to the restoration of the apocia. (SWJ11)

Tendi Maneuver
this starfigbhter maneuver was used by the pilots of the New Republic Navy, during the height of the Yuuzhan Vong invasion of the galaxy. It was used whenever three or more fighters were being pursued by enemy craft, and could not escape without a fight. The fleeing ships built up as much speed as possible while trying to stay ahead of the pursuing enemy ships. Then, one fghter would suddenly kill power to the engines and spin around, facing the oncoming enemy ships. This ship, known as the fan, served two purposes. First and foremost, it broke up the group of enemy fighters, forcing them to change their flight path to avoid collisions. Second, it allowed the fleeing ships to put some distance between themselves and the enemy, giving them an opportunity to loop back around and engage the enemy head-on. (FP)

Tendo
this Mobquet transport was part of the Imperial supply fleet that was ambushed by the Alliance before it could rendezvous with the Corrupter. The Alliance tried to force the Imperial-II class Star Destroyer out of battle by cutting off its supply lines. (XWA)

Tenek
this forested planet was the primary world in the Mis-Tenek System, and was known for its unusual population of plant and animal life made up of large concentrations of metal, such as the vinna tree and the raen sovra. Because of the menace posed by the raen sovra to starships, the Mis-Tenek System was quarantined to prevent any of the worms from gaining access to the rest of the galaxy. (COG)

Tenidit
this freshwater plant is found on the planet Hirsi. Its leaves are fashioned into sleet-fitting garments by the Qwohogs. (GG12)

Teniel
this was one of the most common names given to female Corellians. (GMR9)

Tenk, Phloremirlla
this red-cheeked woman was an agent of the Old Republic's Intelligence agency, and was stationed on the planet Haruun Kal during the Clone Wars. She was ostensibly the owner and operator fo the Highland Green Washeteria, but also served as an information source for the Republic and the Jedi Knights. She preferred to be called simply Flor, since that was the easiest part of her name to pronounce. When Mace Windu arrived on Haruun Kal to investigate the disappearance of Deppa Billaba, she was shot in the shoulder by a blast from Nick Rostu, and died shortly after from massive blood-loss. Mace later discovered that Flor had actually been a double agent, ostensibly working for the Republic but actually working for the Separatists. Rostu eliminated her to save Windu's life as well as to eliminate a threat to the Korunnai. (SHPT)

Tenko
this was one of the most common Gungan surnames, taking from the father's side of the family. These surnames were not dropped, even after marriage. To the Gungans, it meant "sharp weapon". (GCG)

Tenloss Coalition
this small criminal organization became the basis for the Tenloss Syndicate. It was based on Bajic Sector, and specialized in kidnapping and the occasional slave shipment. The Coalition was based on the planet Verisin. (GG11)

Tenloss Syndicate
this criminal organization was based in the Baji Sector during the Galactic Civil War. For much of that period, they were an offshoot of Black Sun. They held sway in over sixty Outer Rim star systems, and controlled over a dozen front corporations in areas such as entertainment, cargo transport, and business management. Tenloss specialized in gunrunning, extortion, and smuggling. After the Battle of Endor, Tenloss quickly expanded as the Empire lost control of many sectors of space. By the time Grand Admiral Thrawn returned from the Unknown Regions, Tenloss had taken control of criminal activities in Astal, Dail, Lol, and Skine Sectors. (SE, EGV, GG11)

Tenloss, Bandar
this man was the founder of the original Tenloss Coalition. It was Bandar who established the idea of the leukish. (GG11)

Tenno
this young boy was the son of Ka'arn, living with his family on the planet Ceriun some 1,000 years before the Battle of Endor. Tenno was a rebellious young boy, an attribute that didn't sit well with his disciplinarian father. The fact that Ka'arn's usual communication with his son involved a back-handed swipe acros the mouth made Tenno all the more eager to strike out on his own. When his father was given a holocron by a dying Jedi Knight, Tenno made a brash decision to steal it from the tribe's elders and make sure it was safe. However, in the back of his mind, Tenno also knew that the Sith would come looking for it, and secretly hoped to deliver the holocron as a way to get the Sith to take him as an apprentice. Tenno and his friends showed up at a council meeting to demand the holocron, and Ka'arn angrily questioned their motives. When he made to strike Tenno yet again, Tenno drew a knife and stabbed his father in the chest. When the Sith did arrive and simply took the holocron, Tenno explained that they had been trying to ensure he could have it. Anger surged in the Sith, who explained that he needed no one's help before killing Tennos' friends as his "reward". The Sith then warned the rest of the tribe that, if anyone harmed Tenno for what had happened, he would return and cause more trouble. (T17)

an Imperial soldier, in command of the 6th regiment that helped turn the Battle of Picutorion. (ISB)

Tensor Rifle
developed by the Squib race, the tensor rifle fired bursts of tractor beam energy in rapid succession at its target, causing intense molecular disruption. Although the beam was invisible, the tensor rifle gave off a loud retort when fired. When used against organic material, the tensor rifle caused complete cellular disruption, and was outlawed in many systems for this reason. (GFT)

Tentacle Bird
native to the planet Pelemax, in the Colonies Region, this bird was used in ancient times as a mount by Pelemaxian warriors. Modern-day Pelemaxians have domesticated these avians for use as beasts of burden. Tentacle birds were flightless, having a pair of blue-green tentacles in place of wings. These tentacles were prehensile, and could be used to swing from tree to tree. These birds emitted a piercing war-cry just before attacking their prey, a sound which served to unnerve the intended victim. The average tentacle bird stood just over two meters tall, and the span of their tentacles reached up to three meters. (COG)

Tente
originally defined by Arvo Norstrag as part of the Rules of the Blade, this form of duel was recognized by the Phosphura Belt Pirates, and was settled quickly. The duel was over when the first blow was landed, when first blood was drawn, or when one of the combatants became unconscious. The exact details were agreed to by the duelists. Killing an opponent was forbidden in a tente duel, and those beings who killed their opponents were often marooned on a barely-inhabitable moon. (PP, SWJ5)

Tenth Alderaanian Expedition
this was the tenth in a series of galactic exploration missions launched by the people of the planet Alderaan, during the height of the Old Republic's Expansionist Period. This expedition was noted because it was the first such mission to make contact with Mrissi race. (TLC)

Tenth Battle of Zehava
this struggle, between the Daan and the Melida, for control of the city of Zehava was generally regarded as the bloodiest of all the wars they waged. Burial vaults containing the dead from this battle were breeched by the Daan when they expanded the tunnels and drains below the city to gain access to Melida-held areas. (DOD)

Tenticulon
this was a species of predatory creature, native to the glaciers of the planet Rhinnal. Many Rhinnalians considered the tenticulon a myth, since it lived below the ice-covered oceans and was rarely seen. Resembling an amorphous blob, the tenticulon had several ribbon-like arms which served a variety of uses. The tenticulon hunted fireheads for food, using specialized stinging limbs to immobilize their prey. When the arms were severed or damaged, the tenticulon could regrow them in a short time. (CCW)

Tentrata, Kader
this sullen Imperial Lieutenant was assigned to the Elrood Sector, during the height of the Galactic Civil War.

Tepine, Qell
a native of Coruscant, Qell Tepine was the leader of the mercenary group known as Star's Nova. Tepine and Star's Nova worked exclusively for the Alliance during the Galactic Civil War, but better money could be found after the Battle of Endor. During his employment by the Alliance, Tepine developed a network of informants within the military, and used them to steal critical information from the New Republic. This made him doubly dangerous to the Republic, for it gave him access to the Republic's databases, and gave him a way to make a lot of credits selling military secrets to the highest bidder. (WBC)

Teprimal
this New Republic Captain served as a flight instructor working under Colonel Atton Repness. Teprimal was also a high-ranking member of Repness' blackmarket sales force, and often arranged for the pick-up of supposedly lost starfighters for later sale to private concerns. (IF)

Teradoc
a tyrannical despot active in the early years of Leia Organa Solo's reign as New Republic Chief of State, Teradoc sought to restore the Imperial New Order to the galaxy. He was constantly trying to win control of the remaining Imperial fleet from High Warlord Harrsk, and he used his crimson-colored fleet of Victory-class Star Destroyers to take out Harrsk's flagship, the Shockwave, during Harrsk's talks with Daala. Like many of the surviving warlords, Teradoc had grown fat and lazy by the time Daala convened the warlords at Tsoss Beacon. And, like the other warlords, he perished at Tsoss Beacon when Daala and Pellaeon poisoned them all. (COJ, DS)

Terak
Terak was ostensibly the King of the Marauders on the Forest Moon of Endor, during the years leading up to the Battle of Endor. He was taller and stronger than the other Marauders, and was obsessed with finding "The Power," which he felt was the key to the ancient scroll he possessed. The scroll held plans to the starship of Noa Briqualon and Salek Weet, who had crashed onto the Forest Moon. After Salek was captured and interrogated, Terak found the scroll and believed that the ship's crystal oscillator contained The Power. Terak desired to built a starship for himself, so that he could terrorize the stars. He enlisted the Dathomiri witch, Charal, to help him find The Power. Later, he killed most of the Towani family while trying to obtain the oscillator from their shuttle. Having obtained it, though, Terak had no idea how to use it. He tried to make Cindel tell him how it worked, but she was unable to. When Cindel retrieved the oscillator and liberated the Ewoks held by the Marauders, Terak had Charal turn into a bird to lead him to the humans, and kept her magic ring to guarantee her compliance. This proved to be his downfall, for Wicket struck the ring with a stone, causing it to flare to life, burning Terak to death. Terak was portrayed by Carel Struycken in Ewoks: The Battle for Endor. (BFE, GMR9, SWDB)

Terazod
this semi-aquatic mammal was native to the planet Naboo. The terazod had a stout horn on its nose, used for digging through the dirt and silt at the bottom of ponds and lakes and uprooting plants to feed on. Because of their small size, terazods actually floated on the surface of the water and snorkeled downward. Their long necks allowed them to reach the bottom of shallow waters, and a long tail helped counterbalance them while feeding. The tail is also studded with horny spikes. (WSW)

She managed to escape, with the help of the Corellian smuggler Bek Nataal. Nataal taught her about smuggling, but was killed during an Imperial boarding exercise. Tere herself was briefly imprisoned, but managed to escape and became a smuggler on her own. She owned the modified Suwantek light freighter known as the StarQuest, which she used as a smuggling vessel. Among the beings who served as her first mate were Matt Turhaya and, after the Battle of Endor, Gil Crosear. Tere had worked with Turhaya on Kabaira, and it was during this time that she learned of Matt's young daughter, Alex. (SWJ6, SWJ13)

Tereb Ab'Lon
a Bothan diplomat who was monitored by the Empire because they suspected, but could not prove, that he was an Alliance supporter. Ab'Lon was, in fact, secretly working for the Alliance. He was killed before he could deliver secret fleet schedules to an Alliance cell in the Tao-Grant System. Nevertheless, he had stored the information in the astromech droid R2-Z1, known as Fweep, which he handed over to Nim Bola before he slipped into a coma. His attackers later dropped him into the Sarlacc, in the Pit of Carkoon, on Tatooine. There was reason to believe that Tereb was eliminated by his superior, Gatrar Shey'Tyan, who had turned the Bothan planets over to the Empire. (SWJ3)

Terecon
this long-bodied reptile was native to the planet Essowyn. Measuring up to eight meter in length, and standing a meter at the shoulder, the terecons were the only natural enemy of the huge hoska.

this Imperial Major served the Bureau of Taxation as an investigator. He was in charge of the investigation of the Estaria Central Starport, during the height of the New Order. (HAS)

Termadus
this white dwarf was the secondary star in the Cularin System. Much younger than its companion, the yellow star Morasil, Termandus had evolved quickly through its life-cycle. Because of its proximity to Morasil, Termandus' meager gravity often collected coronal gases from the larger star, a phenomenon which hid Termandus from many starship nagivational computers and presented dangers to any being traveling through hyperspace near the Cularin System. (LFC)

Termagant
this Imperial Strike-class cruiser was part of the Warlord Zsinj's fleet. It was part of the group that was sent to the Alderaan System to ambush the bacta convoy headed to Coruscant from Thyferra. The lead ship of the group was an unidentified Super-class Star Destroyer, and it destroyed the convoy before Rogue Squadron arrived. However, the Termagant was attacked and destroyed by the Rogues. (KT)

Terman Station
the Black Sun pilot Kalend Thora was nearly assassinated while laying over on this station, which was located along the Sisar Run between Sespe and Sriluur. The Station was roughly twice the size of Nwarcol Point. During the Galactic Civil War, Terman Station was run by Kilon Tarlok, who spent much of his time repairing the aging station. Although local legends said that Terman Station was built millennia ago by the Hutts, Kinsa Doroturo later discovered that the station was actually one of the orbital fortresses built by Xim the Despot. It was abandoned after the Third Battle of Vontor and left idle. (SSR)

Terminus
this planet was located on the fringes of the Red Nebula. A world not unlike Coruscant, Terminus served as a major shipping center along a great number of hyperspace trade routes. The surface of the planet was built to enhance the natural beauty of its forests, but was nonetheless a bustling commercial center. (LTA2, MC50)

Ternma
this was one of the more common surnames used by the Duros people. Like all such names, Trenma was used only for official business, to indicate one individual from another when in the presense of non-Duros. This name literally meant "mechanic". (GCG)

Teroenza
this t'landa Til was employed by Zavval the Hutt to act as the Most Exalted High Priest of Ylesia. In this position, he was actually in charge of obtaining slave labor to process the Hutt's spice for distribution. Teroenza maintained a lavish suite of offices, and used his resources to amass a wonderful collection of artifacts from across the galaxy. His art collection was extremely valuable, and he kept guards posted at all times. It was Teroenza who sent out a request for a pilot to transfer Ylesian colonists to and from the planet, as well as transport spice to the Hutts. He chose Vykk Drago, who was actually a young Han Solo. While Solo was quite good at flying starships, when he learned of the spice and slaving operations he plotted to breka free of Teroenza's employment. Working with Bria Tharen, Han managed to destroy a major processing facility and escape, but not before stealing much of Teroenza's art collections and killing Zavval during his escape. Teroenza was forced to put out a bounty on Drago. Han never was catpured, and Teroenza became increasingly disgruntled with Besadii's leaderhsip. Following Zavval's death, Kibbick was placed on Ylesia as a figurehead, answering to Aruk and Durga. Teroenza worked with Jabba and Jiliac to assassiante Aruk, and Teroenza himself murdered Kibbick. However, his part in the death of Aruk was discovered by Durga, who employed Boba Fett on a priority bounty to kill the beast. Teroenza managed to survive the initial stages of the Battle of Ylesia, and nearly captured Bria Tharen and Han Solo when Fett appeared. He killed the t'landa Til and removed its horn as proof for Durga. (TPS, THG, RD)

Terpfen
a Mon Calamari, and Ackbar's chief starship mechanic. When the Empire invaded Calamari, he was captured and sent to Carida for Imperial reconditioning. While there, his brain was surgically altered to remove loyalty centers. He was then used by the Empire to build star-ships, and was allowed to escape during a Rebel attack. He has been used as an Imperial spy since then. He was responsible for sabotaging Ackbar's B-Wing shuttle, which crashed into the Cathedral of Winds on Vortex. He was also responsible for planting a homing beacon on the ship Ackbar took to the planet Anoth, and he relayed the coordinates to Furgan, who used them in an attempt to kidnao Anakin Solo. A great battle ensued on Anoth, but in the end baby Anakin was rescued. Furgan tried to escape, but Terpfen used one of the MT-AT's to destroy Furgan. Terpfen later returned to Calamari to help rebuild the planet's floating cities. (DA, COTF)

Terra Derida
this Phindian woman was Baftu's assistant. She was in charge of securing the Syndicat's stronghold in the city of Laressa. She also was suspicious of Duenna's loyalties, but kept the Phindian woman in check with continued threats of renewal. It was later revealed that Terra was the sister of Guerra and Paxxi Derida. She had been "renewed" by the Syndicat at the age of eleven, and retrained by Baftu himself to be a member of the Syndicat. Her mother, Duenna, joined the Syndicat in hopes of returning her original memories to her, but Terra was not strong enough. Terra opposed Baftu's proposed alliance with Prince Beju of Gala, fearing that the Prince was getting more than the Syndicat, and that Baftu was spreading his power too thin. Baftu ignored her, even when she recognized that the Prince Beju who arrived on Phindar was really Obi-Wan Kenobi in disguise. When Baftu discovered that the Syndicat treasury was gone - having been recovered by Qui-Gon Jinn and the Derida brothers and returned to the Phindians - he accused Terra of stealing and covering the theft up by blaming Beju. Baftu had her executed on the spot. When her body was discovered later by Guerra and Paxxi, she died in their arms with a flood of memories about them. (HP)

Terra Sool
this planet, noted for its agriculture and its idyllic cloudscapes, was the site of a major Separatist emplacement during the height of the Clone Wars. Unusual, repulsor-equipped battle platforms were placed in low orbit around Terra Sool, hiding in the clouds. The disk-shaped platforms were studded with turbolasers and crewed by all manner of battle droids. The combined efforts of Anakin Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi were able to destroy the battle platforms before they could raze the surface of the planet. The clouds of Terra Sool were inhabited by a species of dragon-like, avian creatures. (CWA2)

Terrain-Following Sensor
a starship component which, when used in a planet's atmosphere, monitors a destination's location and guides the ship toward is using various terrestrial formations as guidemarkers. It can be set to fly as near or as far from the ground as desired. (HSE)

Terrant Skayanestro
this was the name of one the few Tarro who were living in the galaxy during the early years of the New Republic. (UANT)

Terrarium City
this architectural wonder, located on the now-destroyed planet of Alderaan, was created from a natural depression in the plains of the planet. The depression was deepened, expanded, then sealed to prevent any industrial waste from leaking into the earth. The depression was then filled with a liquid polymer to the level of the first section of the city. The polymer was allowed to harden, then modified battleships used their lasers to carve out the section into a series of open spaces. A three-dimensional pattern was programmed into the weapons systems of the battleships, creating the intricate floorplan envisioned by the city's designers. When one level was done, more polymer was added and etched by the space-borne lasers. In this manner, eighteen layers of living space were created in Terrarium City. Although the lasers served to harden the polymer while carving it, the polymer could be later reshaped if the inhabitants so desired. Thus, much of the city's population could create their own artwork by manipulating the walls of their dwellings. The entire city was capped by a transparent sheet, from which sprouted a number of thin spires used as turbolift shafts and waste elimination systems. (ISU)

Terra-tower
this was the primary form of outpost construction used by the ExGal Society. A terra-tower built upon the natural beauty of the planets the Society used to monitor extra-galactic activity, and only intruded on the planet's natural environment enough to support its sensors and communications requirements. These outposts often resembled walled forts, built to keep out the often-savage wildlife of frontier planets. (VP)

Terrik
this was one of the most common surnames found among the human population of Corellia. (GMR9)

Terrik
this surname was common among human settlements found throughout in the galaxy. (GCG)

Terrik Horn, Mirax
a native of the planet Corellia, she was part of the crew of the Pulsar Skate. When the Skate was intercepted by the Black Asp in the Chorax System, she assisted in the rescue of Corran Horn. When she discovered it was Corran she had rescued, she was not happy. It was Corran's father who had sent her own father to Kessel. She often stayed with the family of Wedge Antilles when her father was on a dangerous run. Later, when her father tried to help Wedge Antilles track down the pirates that were responsible for his parents' deaths, Wedge and Mirax became good friends, almost like a brother and sister. When Booster was sent to the Spice Mines of Kessel, Mirax was not yet of legal age. However, that didn't stop her from taking over her father's businesses, using her own business sense to turn the operation into a profit-generating endeavor just slightly on the illegal side. Later, Mirax often helped the Alliance and the New Republic, by smuggling supplies and weapons to Alliance bases. She was an instrumental part of the plan to convoy bacta from Thyferra to Coruscant during the Krytos crisis, but was not part of the convoy when it was destroyed in the Alderaan System. Instead, she and Liat Tsayv had taken a sample of the bacta in the Pulsar Skate to Borleias for examination. The sample eventually made its way to Qlaern Hirf, who used it in the creation of rylca. Mirax reappeared on Coruscant shortly after Tycho Celchu's trial was called off. During the time leading up to the Bacta War, Mirax became increaslingly in love with Corran, despite their familial differences. When Corran asked her to marry him, shortly before the Battle of Thyferra, she quickly agreed. They were married on the Lusankya by Wedge Antilles, in the wake of the battle, in order to make sure that Booster didn't have his say. Then, they were married in an elaborate ceremony on Coruscant. While Corran continued to fly for Rogue Squadron, Mirax started her own import/export business, convincing people that they needed goods that weren't really necessary. During the Republic's struggle with Grand Admiral Thrawn, she used the business as a cover to fly supplies to, and rescue refugees from, worlds Thrawn had subjugated. When Leonia Tavira started her pirate raids, Mirax appealed to the Republic to let her help catch the young woman, for it would help free Corran up to begin thinking about having a child. However, she was captured shortly after her mission began on Nal Hutta, when the Jensaarai were able to read her intentions. She was held on Suarbi 7/5 until rescued by Corran and Luke Skywalker. (XWN, KT, BW, IJ, IR)

Terrik, Booster
a native of the planet Corellia, Booster was a smuggler and a starship pilot for hire. He was the original owner of the star yacht Pulsar Skate which he used in his endeavors. His wife died shortly after the birth of their daugther, Miraz, and Booster was forced to raise her aboard the Pulsar Skate on his own. Following the death of Wedge Antilles' parents on Gus Treta, Booster helped Wedge hunt down the pirates that caused the incident. They never found them, though, because Hal Horn caught up with Booster and sentenced him to five years in the correctional facility on Kessel. Booster lost his left eye while on Kessel, and had a cybernetic replacement inserted in its place. When Booster got out, he made sure that his daughter, Mirax, was able to work on her own within the law, so that she wouldn't suffer his fate. When she became involved with Rogue Squadron - and specifically Corran Horn - Booster found himself assisting the son of the man who imprisoned him. Booster did much of this for Wedge's benefit, and was more than amenable to creating a smugglers' haven in the space station orbiting Yag'Dhul, in an effort to keep the Rogues hidden after they resigned their commission to the New Republic. Booster worked hard to make the station defensible, and even installed several operable but non-functional weapons implacements. He even found proton torpedoes and concussion missiles for the Rogue's X-Wings when none were available. In a bold plan, the Rogues left the station undefended and tried to draw Ysanne Isard's forces into a trap. Booster's false defenses led the Lusankya's Captain Joak Drysso thinking that he was coming under fire from nearly 500 missile launchers and forced him to flee. The short battle led Booster to capture the Star Destroyer Virulence when Ace Squadron was dragged out of hyperspace by the gravity shadows of the station and the huge Lusankya. Booster convinced Lakwii Varrscha that the Aces were part of his defenses, and she surrendered. Booster and the Aces then took the Virulence to Thyferra and helped turn the tide of the Battle toward the Rogues. After this heroism and smart thinking, Booster asked for the Virulence in return. Airen Cracken balked at first, but Corran Horn cited an obscure salvage law that required Cracken to acknowledge Booster's right to ownership. This surprised Booster, coming from his sworn enemy's son, but that surprise was quickly overshadowed by Mirax's engagement to Horn. Talon Kaarde helped swing the deal by removing the weapons on board and selling them back to the New Republic. Booster obtained the stripped-down Virulence, and renamed it the Errant Venture. He then gutted the ship and turned it into a huge, floating, general store for smugglers and other pilots. For many years, Booster was unable to turn a profit from the ship, and spent most of his credits just keeping it running. He was recruited by his daughter and Iella Wessiri during the investigation into the whereabouts of the Lusankya prisoners, and they discovered several of the plots laid out by Ysanne Isard's clone against Rogue Squadron. However, they were too late to rescue the X-Wings from Distna. They did manage to recover Wes Janson and Asyr Sei'lar, both of whom survived. They kept the secret of their survival when Mon Mothma announced that Rogue Squadron had been destroyed. Janson was returned to Coruscant, though Asyr asked to remain "dead" in order to help change Bothan society. When Borsk Fey'lya approached Booster with a job offer, Booster listened until he discovered that Fey'lya was looking for a Bothan body to take the place of Asyr's in the tomb of the Bothan Martyrs. Fey'lya hinted that any body, even that of a criminal assassinated by one of Booster's people, would suffice. Booster was appalled, and beat Fey'lya to within an inch of his life to show his disgust. Booster later told Iella that he'd rather have Fey'lya as a direcgt enemy, rather than as a player sneaking around in the shadows. Booster was again called upon to assist the New Republic, when the existence of the Camaas Document was revealed. Booster and the Errant Venture were recruited to become the Tyrannic, as part of a ploy to recover a copy of the document from Yaga Minor. They were nearly captured in the attempt, as the Imperial forces knew that the Tyrannic was cloaked over Bothawui. However, the intervention of Admiral Pellaeon swayed the battle to the Republic's side, and the group escaped. When the Yuuzhan Vong invaded the galaxy, Booster took the Errant Venture and went into hiding. When Jaina and Jacen Solo contacted him about assisting in the rescue of the Jedi students on Yavin 4, Booster agreed primarily because his grandson, Valin Horn, was on the moon. Booster later agreed to house the students of the Jedi praxeum until a safer training facility could be set up. Led by Kam Solusar and his wife, Tionne, the Jedi students traveled to the Maw Installation, where a new facility was created for them to train in secrecy, away from the fighting and the threat of attack. Booster remained at the Maw with the Errant Venture to protect against a possible Yuuzhan Vong attack. When the Yuuzhan Vong finally surrendered to the Galactic Alliance at Coruscant some five years after their invasion began, Booster decided that it was time to pursue more legitimate goals. The galaxy needed to be rebuilt, and there were too many honest ways to make a living. (XWN, BW, SOP, VOF, IR, EVC, NEGC, UF)

an Imperial Captain, Terrik was in charge of training Davin Felth and the other stormtroopers destined for Tatooine, as part of the search effort for R2-D2 and C-3PO. Terrik's bald head helped him stand out from the rest of the recruits. Terrik was known in Imperial circles as a fearless, highly motiviated leader who was willing to sacrifice his troops. Once on Tatooine, Terrik was placed in charge of the Deserts Sands Zeta squadron, and led the attacks on the Jawa sandcrawler and the Lars homestead. These attacks angered Felth, who continued to grow more disgusted with the Empire. When Terrik ordered his troopers to fire on Han Solo and the Millennium Falcon, Felth used the opportunity to shoot Terrik in the back, claiming that Terrik was a victim of the crossfire.

this Barabel and his hatchmates, Bela and Krasov Hara, were trained under the tutelage of Tesar's mother, Master Saba Sebatyne, as members of the Wild Knights before joining Luke Skywalker and his Jedi Knights during the Yuuzhan Vong invasion of the galaxy. Tesar was the only one of the hatchmates who were Saba's direct kin; Bela and Krasov shared a different mother. One of the females shared the same father as Tesar, but Master Saba had no idea which one it was. The three hatchmates shared a deep, jovial bond, and often shared a sissing kind of laughter at one of their many in-jokes. The three students joined the Jedi strike team which was dispatched to Myrkr, in an effort to locate and destroy the voxyn queen. Tesar managed to survive the assault, and later served as one of Jaina Solo's Lieutenants in the Twin Suns Squadron. After Zonama Sekot reappeared near Coruscant, Tesar served as part of the defensive fleet which protected the planet from attack by the Yuuzhan Vong, a mission which was made all the more important while other Jedi Knights trained to fly aboard their new Sekotan starships. (SBS, Y, UF)

Tesc, Dynba
this young woman was a college student at Garqi Ag University when she was captured by Prefect Mosh Barris during an anti-Imperial demonstration. She didn't understand the game she was playing, until she was eventually rescued by Corran Horn.

She was to gather all her resistance confederates and bring them to liberate the Star's Delight, just as Kirtana brought the crew from the prison. She fled from Garqi with Horn, in an effort to escape the Imperial persecution on the planet, and met Captain Dromath. They fell in love and got married, having a son named Rade before Dromath died in the battles against Grand Admiral Thrawn. Dynba returned to Garqi after his death, but was killed in the initial stages of Yuuzhan Vong invasion of the planet.

Like many Ferroan children, Tescia had heard the stories of Anakin Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi from her parents. She held none of the bitterness toward the Jedi that her parents did, however, never having experienced one of the many Crossings Zonama Sekot had taken to escape the rest of the galaxy. After Sekot decided to help the Jedi Knights end the conflict with the Yuuzhan Vong, Tescia declared that the first order of business should be the reclamation of Coruscant.

Teshik, Osvald
this Imperial Grand Admiral was in command of the fleets which patrolled Darpa and Bormea Sectors during the height of the New Order. Teshik had been promoted to the position of Grand Admiral after Emperor Palpatine sent him on a doomed mission against a Hapan battle fleet. Teshik managed to survive, but the majority of his body sustained permanent damage and had to be cyborged. This sudden change turned Teshik inward, and he completely cut himself off from any form of emotion. Palpatine then personally charged Teshik with security in the Ringali Shell, and threatened to execute Teshik if the situation with the privateer vessel Far Orbit wasn't resolved. At the Battle of Endor, Teshik was aboard the second Death Star when the Alliance attack. As the station crumbled around him, Teshik was pinned beneath a falling column. Only a construction worker stopped to help him, freeing teshik and dragging him to safety. Old emotions began to resurface, and Teshik personally rallied the diminished Imperial fleet and continued to battle against the Alliance for more than three hours after the Death Star exploded. Teshik and his ship, the Eleemosynary were then captured by the Alliance, and Teshik was executed for crimes he committed in the name of the Empire. (FOP, SWI66)

Tessek
a Quarren who was one of Jabba the Hutt's Chief Lieutenants at his palace on Tatooine, Tessek was involved in a number of intrigues. He was working with Prefect Talmont in a plot to kill Jabba, while secretly bribing Talmont's men into killing both Jabba and Talmont. He would then sell any and all of Jabba's criminal empire to Lady Valarian. He planned to keep most of Jabba's "clean" business operations for himself. He had already manipulated many of these businesses into lucrative ventures, with Jabba's blessing. It was Tessek, however, who handled their day-to-day operation, not Jabba, although Jabba was the one listed as the owner. Tessek had managed to bribe into employment many of Jabba's henchmen, including Ree-Yees, Barada, and many of the Weequays. However, when Tessek encountered a disembodied B'omarr monk who seemed to known all of his plans, Tessek began to panic. He had planted a bomb on Jabba's supply skiff, which he would explode when Jabba left the palace. His plan was to have Talmont intercept the barge at Jabba's Mos Eisley warehouse, where both would die. However, the presence of Leia Organa and Luke Skywalker in the palace put many of Tessek's plans in disarray. He tried to warn Jabba of the danger posed by the Alliance, hoping to keep the Hutt in Mos Eisley. Jabba, though, began to distrust Tessek, and ordered him to accompany the sail barge to the Pit of Carkoon. Tessek was trapped. It was Tessek who finally put all the pieces of Luke Skywalker's plan to free Han Solo and destroy Jabba, but the only audience he could find to hear him out was Ephant Mon, who later linked Tessek to an Imperial plot to destroy Jabba. Tessek tried to escape the palace, but he was intercepted by Ortugg, who held him in the palace until Jabba was ready to depart. Jabba then demanded that Tessek stay near him. When Skywalker's plan went into action, Tessek played along with it, shooting a Weequay who would have stopped Leia from strangling Jabba. Tessek managed to escape Jabba's sail barge before it exploded, and returned to the palace. There, he was captured by the B'omarr monks and his brain was disassociated from his body. As an acolyte, he learned that he had more in common with Skywalker, Organa, and Han Solo than he did with Jabba's ilk, and found the true meaning of freedom. (XW, MTS, TJP)

Tessent
the history of this chalcedony idol was shrouded in mystery. During the early years of the New Republic, rumors and legends of the Tessent began to spring up throughout the Moddell Sector of the galaxy, after the Imperial presence in the galaxy was removed. It was believed to have been buried on Ast Kikorie, in the tomb of a Dark Jedi, or hidden in a mine on Vasha. These tales and many others drew treasure seekers to the Moddell Sector throughout the era of the New Order, but the Tessent was never found. As more and more lore about the Tessent became known, it was revealed that there were actually two Tessents. Both appeared to be birds with feline heads, but one was attributed to the Ayrou of Maya Kovel, while the other was a representation of the guardian of the ancient Kings of Archais who united Alsakan under a common leader. The Alsakan Tessent was a symbol of patriotism, although many treasure hunters believed that it was also the key to unlocking an ancient storehouse full of riches. Modern rumors pointed to the presence of at least one of the Tessents somewhere in the Kuna systems located in Moddell Sector. (GMR9)

Tesser
this X'Ting warrior was the first of Jesson Di Blinth's hive-brothers to attempt to locate the hidden eggs of the royal line, during the last years of the Old Republic. Tesser had managed to penetrate the Hall of Heroes, but was unprepared for the attacks of the huge worms that were hidden beneath it. Tesser was unable to defeat the worms, so he strapped himself to a high crevice and waited for another chance to escape. Unfortunately, no such chance ever came, and no other X'Ting could locate him, and so Tesser died in his position. Later, Jesson discovered Tesser's body during his own attempt to locate the eggs.

His place as leader of the 37th was eventually taken by Soontir Fel, and Tessra was given command of a group sent to destroy several Alliance outposts. However, many of his missions ended in failure, and he was re-assigned to the 37th. Fel stepped aside to allow Tessra to take command, while Fel opted to remain a pilot. (MBF)

Testing Screen
this device, also known as an image emitter, was developed by the Jedi Council to test the telepathic abilities of Jedi trainees. It had no buttons or controls, and was manipulated solely via the Force. Contained in the memory banks of the screen were thousands of pictures, which could be displayed randomly or chosen by the user through the Force. This assured that a trainee couldn't oversee what the Master was doing, and guess at a correct answer. Using the screen, a Master could project into it a succession of images, which the trainee would have to interpret via their connection to the Force. (SW1, IG1, PJSB)

Teta
this strong-willed female warrior conquered the system of stars and planets now known as the Empress Teta System, many millennia before the Galactic Civil War. In what historians refer to as the First Unification Wars, Teta conquered seven major systems and their primary worlds, including the Koros System. She moved her seat of power to the city of Cinnagar, on Koros Major, and ruled with a fair but strict hand some 5,000 years before the Battle of Yavin. She was aided in her unification of the systems by the Jedi Knights, who realized that stability in the region would allow it to join the galactic community and benefit from trade and commerce. She was assisted by Memit Nadill and Odan-Urr, whom she trusted implicitly. So, when Odan-Urr had a vision foretelling the rise of the Sith Empire, Teta believed him and took him to Coruscant to tell the rulers of the galaxy. When they laughed at him and believed him to be an impulsive young Jedi, Teta returned to Cinnagar to prepare her worlds for the attack. Shortly before the Sith rose up, Jori Daragon returned to Cinnagar and was shot down over Teta's palace. The arrival of the frightened young woman only hardened Teta's resolve to protect her worlds. In what became known as the Great Hyperspace War, the Tetan forces - led by Jori Daragon, using information provided by her brother, Gav - soundly defeated the Sith fleet near the Denarii Nova. She rewarded Jori by giving her the rights to own and operate Aarrba the Hutt's starship repair facility. Teta was succeeded by a number of heirs, but over the centuries the government became fragmented. (DE1, GAS, FOSE, SWJ14, PH)

Tet-Ami
known as the Time Guardian, this was the unusual being who appeared on the planet Benja-Rihn some 4,000 years before the Battle of Naboo, and helped the natives of Carthas defeat a swarm of savage beasts. Tet-Ami was rumored to control the Orb of Passage, which in turn could control time itself. In a strange twist of reality, Tet-Ami was actually the Jedi Master, Mace Windu. Legends and prophecies predicted that Mace Windu would return the Orb of Passage to the Temple of Tet-Ami, and the Jedi Council guarded the Orb while awaiting the birth of Mace Windu. They then bided their time, never interfering but monitoring the progress of Windu's training. Only when Mace Windu became a full Jedi would the Council relax. Their time to act came when Kruy Mulacks discovered the Temple of Tet-Ami on Benja-Rhin, and the Council had to return the Orb to its resting place. Mace Windu was sent to Benja-Rihn, where he entered the Temple and restored the Orb. It was during this mission that the Orb drew him back in time, where he was able to rescue the natives of Carthas from the attack of the savage beasts. (T13)

When the planet was renamed Empress Teta, the ship became known as the Tetan Interceptor. The four-winged fighter was distinguished by the forward mandibles that protected the cockpit, and which housed the communications and sensor systems. A laser cannon was mounted at the tip fo each wing, and an ion cannon was mounted on the nose of the ship. From tip to tail, the Tetan Interceptor measured 14.2 meters in length. The ship required a pilot and co-pilot to operate. Because its primary mission profile was planetary defense, the Tetan Interceptor was not equipped with a hyperdrive. (PH)

Tetan Shocktroopers

He had a palatial estate on the planet, and used it as a gathering place for the fleet which attacked Nar Shaddaa. Teth was located in the Outer Rim Territories, near both the Corporate Sector and Hutt space, and so was strategic to Shild's attack on Nar Shaddaa. Teth's location led its leaders to believe that it was safe from Imperial domination. Bria Tharen met with the planet's leaders, hoping to incite them to open rebellion, but she failed. Boba Fett tracked her here, but lost her when she left the meeting. (THG, RD)

a Fallanassi school world, Teyr was the site of a devastating battle during the Clone Wars, in which Separatist forces handily defeated the clone troopers of the Army of the Republic. Many decades later, Teyr became a boom world after the Battle of Endor, and much of its economic growth was a result of increased tourism. However, the natives didn't tolerate off-worlders very well, and required that visitors abide by a series of visitors' guidelines. The local police forces tended to favor natives over off-worlders in any dispute, and they subtly encouraged visitors not to stay on Teyr too long. (BTS, SOL, SHPT)

Thabit
this planet was located in the Six Local Systems. (GMR6)

Thackery
this New Republic warship was assigned to blockade the planet Galantos to stop the advance of the Yevethan Purge. (SOL)

Thaere Privo
this was the second world of the Thaere System. During the Old Republic, this temperate world was populated by Bothans, Humans, and Sullustans, and was the base of the Thaereian Military. The Thaere System was located along the Corellian Spine, providing easy access to and from Thaerae Privo and the neighboring Cularin System. Because of its proximity to the Corellian Spine, Thaere Privo became a regular, though undistinguished, trading center for the surrounding systems. During the years following the Battle of Naboo, the Thaereians began to make overt motions toward controlling the Cularin System, despite reassurances to the contrary from Thurm Loogg. The exact intentions of the Thaereian Military were unknown to the natives of Cularin, although many feared that the Thaereians were in league with Count Dooku and the Separatists. When the Clone Wars broke out, the government of Thaere Privo applied for, and received, a Republic Charter for defense of the Cularin System, giving them complete military control over the system with the blessing of the Old Republic. (LFCW)

Thaereian Military
this police organization's stated mission was "to protect the citizens of Cularin from domestic disturbances localized in the asteroid belt." Active during the decades leading up to the Battle of Naboo, the Thaereian Military was one of the many groups which handled intra-system military defense, before the Old Republic consolidated such control under their own military. Originally based on the three planets of the Thaere System, as well as the moon of Lonus Woud, the Thaereian Military was considered overly large for the system it protected, even during its earliest stages. The Military later expanded beyond its system boundaries, to fill the void which existed before the Old Republic began taking an interest in the defense of individual systems. This was especially true in the Cularin System, where the population became more and more lawless over the centuries, as smugglers and crimelords established bases in the Cularin System's asteroid belt. The Thaeraian Military appointed to protect the Cularin System by the Galactic Senate, much to the chagrin of the Cularin natives. Some time later, it was discovered that the Thaereians had been working with Eelo Begraas in developing starfighter attack techniques, although their exact nature and necessity were unknown. When Cularin suddenly disappeared from the system, then reappeared just as suddenly, the Cularin Militia discovered that the Thaereians had brought in a huge number of starships to the Cularin System. While the Thaereian Military, under the command of Admiral Jir Tramsig, claimed that the build-up was for the protection of the Cularin System after the near-disaster on Cularin, the Cularin Militia remained on high alert in case a war was started. Despite assurances from the Thaereian leaders that there were just 10,000 troops protecting Cularin, underground sources discovered that more than 173,000 troops were actually ready for battle. The revelation of this fact, coupled with the existence of The Burnout space station, led many Cularin natives to believe the Thaereian Military was not what it seemed. After rumors of Thaere's ties to the InterGalactic Banking Clan were reported on Eye on Cularin, open opposition to the Thaereian Military began to grow. Graffiti and stickers with the letters TINYF - standing for "Thaere Is Not Your Friend" - began to show up all over Cularin. The true depth of Thaere's alliance with the Separatists was revealed when Operation False Horizon was launched. With the onset of the Clone Wars, the Thaereian Military applied for and received military authorization to defend the Cularin System under a Republic Charter, much to the dismay of the inhabitants of the Cularin System. This action effectively meant that the entire system was under the control of the Thaereians, ostensibly with the full support of the Old Republic. (LFC, LFCW)

Thaffal
this Korunnai was one of the Akk Guards who served under Kar Vastor, on the planet Haruun Kal, druing the years leading up to the Clone Wars. When Jedi Master Mace Windu arrived on the planet to recover Depa Billaba, Thaffal was one of several Akk Guards who physically opposed Windu's attempts. When Thaffal challenged Windu, the Jedi Master simply head-butted Thaffal in the nose. Despite a badly broken nose, Thaffal continued to serve Vastor, and made sure to show Windu his anger at every moment. However, when Master Windu decided to win the Summertime War by defeating the Separatist forces supporting the Balawai, Thaffal and the Akk Guards made sure to take their own fight to the Balawai. In the attempt to stop Windu's plans to reach the droid control system in Pelek Baw, Thaffal and the Akk Guards attacked the clone troopers of the Army of the Republic who were supporting the Jedi. In the battle, Thaffal was shot in the knee and then killed by Nick Rostu. (SHPT)

Thaffe
this Imperial Navy drill instructor was accused of murder on an orbital station during his hitch. Spruch Goa was the Intelligence investigator at the time, and he solved the crime, absolving Thaffe from any guilt. When they both were discharged, they teamed up and joined the local Sector Rangers. When they began investigating a counterfeit credit scam set up by Jabba the Hutt, they met Dyyz Nataz. All three were captured by Gank Killers and tortured, although none of them revealed any useful information. The Ganks then made the three play sabacc to see who would be killed first. Thaffe threw the game to save Goa, and was shot on the spot. Goa and Nataz went berserk, killing the Ganks and destroying Jabba's palace. (DESB)

Thakwaash
this alien race was native to the planet Thakwaa. They were tall, lean humanoids covered with short, brown fur. Their faces were elongated, and were dominated by broad, flat noses and wide mouths. Many other races likened their facial features to those of the Gungans, although the Thawkaash ears were much smaller. The hair on the head of a Thakwaash was considered quite beautiful, being full-bodied and deeply colored. One of the unique things about the Thakwaash was that each individual was a collection of separate minds, any one of which can take control of the individual's mind and act. (WS, GMR9)

Thal had spent the last fifteen years hiding on Escarte, hoping to escape notice. Just before Anakin Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi located Thal on Escarte, the Bith was arrested on a series of trumped-up charges, although it was clear to everyone that the Bith was going to be executed to keep his secrets safe. Thal was despondent, and was reluctant to assist the Jedi in any way that might hasten his demise. However, with the help fo Travale, they were able to escape the prison facility and flee Escarte. Once they were free, Thal revealed that he had actually built two of the transceivers, and both were delivered about a year before the Battle of Naboo. One of them he provided to the Xi Charrians who built the mechno-chair. The other he transported to Raith Sienar. Thal then provided the Jedi with the name Fa'ale Leh, the Twi'lek who transported Sienar's prototype Infiltrator to Darth Sidious. (LEV)

Thalassia
this planet was best known as the base of operations for the Thalassian Slavers. (GG11)

After the Empire forcibly disbanded the Legion, Thall fled the sector and stayed one step ahead of the Empire by seeking employment as a mercenary. However, he found himself fighting battles against cultures that were unprepared for modern warfare, so Thall sought out more noble work. He was eventually hired by the New Cov Boimolecule Company as a security officer, but this was not what he had in mind. He left that job and became a part of the more "civilized" warfare of organized crime. He was discovered by Saujutta-Ok-Topii when he was trying to neutralize a Syndicate One operation. The Pan-preneur and her opponent settled their difference without bloodshed, and she insisted that Thall become part of her team. He agreed, and became the Syndicate's weapons and tactical expert. (SWJ8)

Thanas, Malinza
the daughter of Gaerial Captison and Pter Thanas, she was four and one-half years old when Thrackan Sal-Solo rose to power on Corellia. After her father died of Knowt's Disease, and Gaeriel was killed at Corellia during the Battle of Fondor, Malinza was adopted by a well-placed Bakuran family. She was also sponsored by Luke Skywalker and his wife, Mara Jade Skywalker, as part of Luke's promise to Gaeriel that the child would be all right. Malinza was as beautiful as her mother, with her left eye being green and her right eye being grey. She was also a gifted musician, and received a prodigy chair with the Bakuran National Symphony. However, her experience with politics led her to form the Freedom movement, in an effort to ensure Bakura was able to stand on its own in the galaxy. Much of the impetus behind the Freedom movement came from the loss of Malinza's parents, especially Gaeriel Captison's death at Corellia. Malinza believed that Bakura had been forced to lend its warships to the Republic's efforts to smash the Sacorrian Triad, and hated being beholden to the Republic. She used her name and her contacts to ensure that Freedom was considered a legitimate organization, and began rallying the Bakuran people to work toward establishing their freedom from the New Republic and the rest of the galaxy. She secretly accepted funding from Deputy prime Minister Blaine Harris, realizing that Freedom couldnb't operate without credits to support its efforts. Inside, Malinza felt that it was in Bakura's best interests to join the New Republic in an effort to defeat the Yuuzhan Vong, but her belief in the Cosmic Balance made her oppose the Republic. She feared that other members of her family would die if the Republic successfully repelled the alien invaders. After Prime Minister Cundertol was exposed as a traitor to Bakura, Vyram and Malinza were sentenced to "rehabilitation" for their part in the Freedom movement. In order to prove their innocence, they had to prove that the money Cundertol stole from the Bakuran treasury was used to finance his human-replica droid body and his plans with the Ssi-ruuk. (AS, BP, NEGC, FH2)

Thanas, Pter
this Imperial Navy Commander was stationed at Bakura after he refused to destroy a Talz village on Alzoc III. While on Bakura, he was the commanding officer aboard the Dominant. Thanas had been assigned to monitor the mining operations on Alzoc III, and discovered that the native Talz worked harder if they were fed more food. He arranged his budgets, and nearly tripled the output of the operation. When a new commanding officer reduced the food allotments to the Talz, the Talz leader protested. The new commander ordered Thanas to wipe out the village, and he refused. While on Bakura, he began questioning his belief in the Emperor's New Order. After the attack by the Ssi-ruuk and the Alliance's offer of aid, Thanas only became more disturbed by the New Order's ideal. When the battle was over, he gave up his Imperial commission and joined the Alliance. He remained on Bakura, helping Gaerial Captison restore the planet's government. Their relationship blossomed, and they were married eight years after the Ssi-ruuk invasion. Their marriage produced a single daughter, Malinza, before Thanas was diagnosed with Knowt's disease. The disease took his life when Malinza was three, following Gaerial's unsuccessful bid for re-election as Prime Minister. (TB, AS, TBSB)

this robust, bearded man served as the Archon on the planet Vergill, representing his planet to the Hapes Consortium during the Yuuzhan Vong invasion of the galaxy. Known more for his drinking than his politics, Thane scoffed at Leia Organa-Solo's plea for help in driving off the Yuuzhan Vong. He argued that the Consortium should remain neutral, since the Yuuzhan Vong has thus far left the Hapes Cluster alone. Thane and his supporters formed a sizable portion of the Consortium, and threatened to keep the Hapans out of the struggle. However, he challenged Prince Isolder to a duel, after Isolder confronted him. Isolder won the challenge, forcing Thane to throw his vote toward helping the New Republic. However, after the destruction of a large part of the Hapan fleet at the hands of Thrackan Sal-Solo, Thane found himself suddenly vindicated. (JE)

Thane, Govin
this Imperial Security Bureau agent was dispatched to put a halt to the Alliance's plans to evacuate refugees from Bespin's Cloud City, shortly before the Battle of Endor.

Thanu
native to the volcanic regions of Kamur, this unusual carnivore was a member of the family known as silicavores. This meant that they survived by consuming rocks, although the thanu actually consumed rocks which contained trapped plant and animal matter, thereby gaining organic nutrients while expelling the crushed rocks it didn't digest. Thanu resemble large knobs of flesh, standing over a meter tall and having a number of bulbous mouths and arms around their trunk. They moved about on unusual "rolling" toes which were actually stone feet developed early in their lifecycle and manipulated by a complex musculature.

He was employed at Cargan's Gustatorium, and was Teeks' regular server during this time. He agreed to talk with Joram Kithe and Mapper Gann about Teeks' disappearance, since Teeks regularly paid him for the information he provided. Tharb himself was an ex-convict who could only find work as a food server, but his contacts with the underworld in Nehass and across Tarhassan proved valuable for the work Teeks was doing. (SWI73)

Tharen, Bria
this young Corellian woman was the daughter of Renn and Sera Tharen. A student of archaeology, she was fascinated by the ways of the Jedi Knights, and studied anything and everything about the Clone Wars. At seventeen, though, she decided that her life was lacking something. Just after completing her undergraduate studies in preparation for advanced schooling on Coruscant, she sold her jewelry and joined the religious colony on Ylesia to begin worshipping the Oneness. She became deeply addicted to the Exaltation performed by the t'landa Til, and so worked extra hard in the spice mines, hoping to achieve a higher state of understanding. It was about a year after she joined the colony that she met Han Solo. Their friendship grew steadily, much to Bria's dismay, for she was a devoted follower of the t'landa Til religion. However, it was Han who discovered her love of archaeology, and this led to Teroenza assigner her the position of archival and cataloguer of his collection fo treasures. Bria was happiest at this point as a pilgrim, and allowed herself to become more and more attached to Han. When Han told her of the true nature of the Ylesian colonies, she initially thought he was lying in order to win her over. She eventually came to realize that he was right after forcing herself to observe the t'landa Til during Exaltations, and worked with Han to escape from the planet. After attending the wedding of Muuurgh and Mrrov on Togoria, they returned to Bria's family holdings on Corellia. There, Han's years of swoop riding and scheming with Garris Shrike came back to haunt him, as Bria's brother and former fiancÚ' recognized him as someone else. They were forced to leave Corellia, but not without the support of her fatherm, Renn. They went to Coruscant, where the t'landa Til and the Hutts tried to capture them for their escape from Ylesia. Bria, burdened by the emotional detachment from the Exaltation and by the presumed impediment to Han's career, left him one day and returned on her own to Corellia. After this, Bria met up with Lanah Malo, and began a crusade against the Hutts and the t'landa Til. She remained on or near Corellia for four years, working with underground resistance there, then disappeared. She resurfaced on Devaron, and was nearly discovered by Han, who was there looking for work. Bria had been serving as Admiral Trefaren's assistant. At this time, Aruk the Hutt placed a 50,000-credit bounty on her live capture. Bria eventually joined the Alliance, and rose quickly through the ranks. She was the mastermind behind the Red Hand Squadron, and was the primary proponent of the tactics used in the Battle of Ylesia. She was successful in bringing down the Besadii operation there, and secured a huge amount of funding for the Alliance be taking artifacts, spice, and loose credits from the operations there. This angered Han and the smugglers who helped in the battle, for they thought they were going to be paid. This was the final time she parted ways with Han. She then accepted an assignment to support the resistance on Toprawa, where they had received the plans fo the first Death Star. As the Empire tracked the plans to the planet, they struck with incredible force. Most of Red Hand Squadron was killed supporting the resistance, and Bria took a suicide capsule before she could be captured. Boba Fett delivered the news of her death to Han on Tatooine, shortly before Han accepted Ben Kenobi's offer for transportation to Alderaan. (TPS, THG, RD)

Tharen, Pavik
Bria Tharen's brother, Pavik had many of the physical and personal traits of his mother, Sera. A short, thin young man with green eyes and dark hair, Pavik simply wanted to maintain the status quo within the family, which primarily meant that he could live a sedentary life of luxury. When Bria returned from Ylesia with Han Solo, Pavik was suspicious of the young man, both from a selfish desire to protect his wealth and from genuine concern for his sister. Later, it was Pavik who recognized Han from one of the many scams he ran with Garris Shrike, precipitating Han and Bria fleeing Corellia. (TPS)

Tharen, Renn
this young Corellian man started out as a pilot for a shipping company. A shrewd businessman as well as a pilot, Renn worked his way the corporate ladder until he eventually owned the operation. A private man, Renn bought a lrage tract of land for family estate as a buffer between himself and his neighbors. Renn married a young woman named Sera, who bore him two children: a son named Pavik and a daughter named Bria. Sera's social machinations grated on Renn, who was unable to confront his wife until Bria returned from Ylesia with Han Solo. Renn felt a bond with Han, and recognized that the young man - no matter what his past held - could someday become a true hero in his own right. He chided both Sera and Pavik for worrying only about their inheritances, and chose to provide Han and Brea with enough credits to get to Coruscant and try to establish a life for themselves. When Bria decided to leave Han, feeling that she was holding him back, she asked her father to help get Han off the wanted list and set up with enough credits to live happily. Renn obliged, feeling for them both in their time of need. (TPS)

Tharen, Sera
whatever emotional gifts Sera had as a young Corelliam woman, she soon lost them after achieving her goal: marrying into a wealthy family. This she accomplished when she married Renn Tharen, the president of a prominent shipping company. She then set out to achieve social standing by waving her husband's wealth in everyone's face. Her social responsibilities demanded a family setting, and she gave Renn two children - Pavik and Bria. However, while Pavik seemed to take to his mother's pettiness, it drove Bria away. After Sera manipulated Bria into an engagement with Dael Levare, Brea fled the family to join the pseudo-religious colony on Ylesia, and was not heard from for a year. When she returned, Sera immediately began to harp on her daughter. It didn't help that Bria returned with Han Solo, a youth Sera held in low regard because of his origins as a street orphan. Sera invited Dael into the house for lunch, in hopes of driving Han away in shame. When Pavik recognized Han as a con artist who used to work for Garris Shrike, Sera became increasingly agitated. She demanded that he leave, but Renn intervened. Angered and annoyed at Sera's lack of family values, Renn blamed her for Bria's disappearance and praised Han for returning her. Sera was unable to comprehend this, and fled to her rooms. (TPS)

Tharish
meaning "explorer" or "inquisitive", this was a common female name among the Mon Calamari race. (GCG)

Tharkos
this planet was used as the headquarters for Millennium Astro-Engineering. Although Tharkos suffered greatly during the Stenax Massacres, which occurred some ten months after the Battle of Endor, the New Republic was finally able to put an end to the Stenaxes' invasion after an intense battle near Tharkos. (CSWDW, GMR1)

Tharlst Squad
this was one of the groups of Imperial soldiers which attacked the Alliance base on Taul. They were attached to the Victory-class Star Destroyer Dominator. (SWJ1)

Thar'quan
this Defel mine worker appeared to be an average meleenium miner. In reality, Thar'quan was an experienced and highly effective saboteur and information gatherer. Thar'quan worked in the city of Uhur'qah, tapping into the city's central computer and stealing data about Imperial operations. Very few knew that Thar'quan was also a deep-cover agent of the Alliance, and was the protege of Sasnak Toxis. Thar'quan was once captured and imprisoned in the Spice Mines of Kessel, but was freed with the help of Larq Thur. (CRO, AIR)

tharr
this Shyriiwook word was used as the suffix to many Wookiee names. It translated into Basic as "flyer" or "swimmer". It could be attached to a prefix by itself, or combined with other suffixes to form a complete Wookiee name. (GMR10, GCG)

Thasca Knarr
this Snivvian merchant set up his own business within one of the guest rooms at Exovar's Emporium, located on the planet Neftali. While this activity was generally overlooked by Exovar, Thasca Knarr was also plotting to take over the Emporium for his own usage. Thasca Knarr developed a network of spies and mercenaries, and hoped to eventually command a team of bounty hunters. All of Thasca Knarr's plans were thwarted, however, when a group of independent operatives uncovered his plans and exposed them to Exovar. (WSV)

The Alien Bar
located in the district of Haziz Downside, on the planet N'zoth, this was one of the few places that a non-Yevetha could get a drink in public. (CCW)

The Battle of Ahto: A Memoir
this history of the Imperial occupation of the planet Manaan and the effects it had on the Selkath was written by Fewash Welko. The book chronicled the Selkath plans for rebellion, as well as the sudden appearance of a mysterious stranger who knew as much about the Order of Shasa as the Selkath. After the Battle of Endor, the book was translated from the Selkath language into Basic, for reading and investigation by the rest of the galaxy. It was then that people realized the Selkath had been visited by Darth Vader, not a saving Jedi as many had suspected. The memoirs told of the swift way in which the Selkath infiltrated the Imperial base and eliminated any opposition. Their attack was so fast that the base Commander could only order a retreat in the face of it, leaving the tourists who had traveled to Manaan behind. However, the Selkath didn't stop at killing the Imperials. They found themselves possessed by a bloodlust that consumed them, and they slaughtered the innocent tourists as well. Jedi scholars came to believe that Vader had tricked them into the attacks, in an effort to force the Selkath down a path toward the Dark Side of the Force, where they might have become a powerful weapon for Emperor Palpatine. (PH)

The Big Isn't
this was a term used to describe interstellar space, referring to the fact that there is literally nothing in between star systems but dust and vacuum. (BF1)

this tavern, located on the moon Bogg 4, was a known hangout for bounty hunters and those beings who needed a bounty collected, during the last decades of the Old Republic. (BF1)

The Brief Reign of Future Wraiths
this Corellian opera was first produced more than twenty years before the Battle of Naboo, and was popular enough to attract galactic attention. The funding for the original production was acquired from several sources, including a large donation from the parents of Finis Valorum. After its surprisingly successful run on Coruscant, the opera was taken on the road by a troupe of Biths, and appeared on a wealth of planets over the next twenty years. It was staged at the prestigious Coruscant Opera house in the year leading up to the Battle of Naboo. (COD)

The Emperor's Court
this spoof on criminal justice holovids was produced by an unknown agent during the height of the New Order. Individual episodes featured an actor who was garbed like Emperor Palpatine, who served as judge and jury for simple litigation cases. Another actor, dressed as Darth Vader, portrayed the Emperor's bailiff. Cases were tried with an exaggerated form of "Imperial justice," in an effort to parody the Empire's cruelty and make it more obvious to the galaxy. This is a spoof on the popular courtroom-based television series, The People's Court. (T14)

The Goods
this was the term used to describe Finis Valorum, during his tenure as Chancellor of the Old Republic, by the Senate Guards and the Judicial Department. (COD)

The Kruy Mulacks Show
this investigative newsfeed was hosted by Kruy Mulacks, and provided a sensationalized version of obscure events during the last decades of the Old Republic. (T13)

The Light Side of the Subelectronic Force
this was one of the many treatises written by Nasdra Magrody, in which he speculated that subelectronic devices could be implanted into the brain of a Force-sensitive individual. These devices would then allow the individual to "influence artificial intelligences of varying complexities at the individual synaptic level" - or, more simply, to control droids through the Force. (OWS)

The Lost Twenty: Dooku's Rise
this unofficial account of Count Dooku's life, written by Professor H. Hrush, was one of the five most popular pieces of literature during the year leading up to the Clone Wars. (HNN4)

The New Crder: The Glories of the Next Thousand Generations
this was one of the many exhibit wings found in the Galactic Museum on Coruscant. It was originally known as the "Annals of the Republic" during the last centuries of the Old Republic, but was renamed when Emperor Palpatine instituted the New Order. (CCW)

The New Order

The Sequential Passage of Chronological Intervals
a musical piece often played by Figrin D'an and the Modal Nodes, The Sequential Passage of Chronological Intervals was originally performed by Gaeriel Capens during the year leading up to the Clone Wars. (TME, HNN5)

The Trickery of Vosdia Nooma
this Rodian drama was written and produced during the years leading up to the Clone Wars, and was generally considered more of a political statement than a pure Rodian drama. Written by Hishinu Booj and endorsed by Senator Onaconda Farr, The Trickery of Vosida Nooma was laden with symbolism and allegory that was at once entertaining and a heavy-handed propaganda machine for the Military Creation Act. The play revolved around the title character, whose daughter is poisoned by the bite of a bug, an event which draws the community together. Nooma then begins using his new-found "fame" to spout political rhetoric, and eventually is eleceted baron of the town of Yusk. He begins heavily taxing the local farmers, despite the growing unrest being stirred by a noted soldier. The soldier begins building his own army, while Nooma is unable to decide whether or not to fight back. A Paladin character arrives to urge Nooma to build up his own army, in direct parallels to Chancellor Palpatine's call for an Army of the Republic. The remainder of the drama centers on the bloody conflict that follows, along with Nooma's eventual downfall. The bloody conflict was meant to indicate the future of the Old Republic, should the Military Creation Act not be passed by the Galactic Senate. (HNN5)

The Universal Energy Field
this was one of the many treatises written by Nasdra Magrody, in which he speculated that subelectronic devices could be implanted into the brain of a Force-sensitive individual. These devices would then allow the individual to "influence artificial intelligences of varying complexities at the individual synaptic level" - or, more simply, to control droids through the Force. (OWS)

Theal
this inhospitable planet was originally scouted by Barosa Warren for the Old Republic. It was controlled by the Empire during the Galactic Civil War. (AIR)

this Jawa was responsible for perimeter patrols of the territory held by Kalit. He was known as an inspiring leader, and was adept at discerning the approach of krayt dragons, Sandpeople, and other Jawa clans. (CCG9)

Theed
founded 800 years before the Battle of Naboo, this is the capital city of the planet Naboo. Theed is surrounded by water, although it sits at the edge of an unusually tall steppelandand. The city is surrounded by numerous waterfalls which have formed over the millennia. (SW1, IWE1)

Theed Arms
this small weapons manufacturer was based on the planet Naboo, and supplied a variety of weapons to the armed forces and royalty of Naboo. It was originally founded by Captain Panaka, in order to produce the weaponry needed for the Royal Naboo Security Force. (SON, NEGW)

Theed Cruiser
this form of starship was produced by starshipwrights on the planet Naboo, during the years leading up to the Clone Wars. They were named in honor of the capital city of Theed, and were built to exacting and over-engineered standards of safety and reliability. (BF4)

Theed Generator
this was the name given to the immense, power-producing facility which was located in the city of Theed, on the planet Naboo. During the last decades of the Old Republic, the Theed Generator operated constantly, drawing raw plasma energy from the core of the planet and converting it into usable power for much of the population of Naboo. It even supplied power to Kwilaan Starport. During the Battle of Naboo, the Theed Generator was the site of an epic lightsaber battle between Qui-Gon Jinn, Obi-Wan Kenobi, and Darth Maul. In the end, only Obi-Wan Kenobi survived the battle. (SON)

Theed Palace
this primary seat of the Naboo government, the Palace dominated the incredibly beautiful city of Theed. Deep in its core, the Naboo had built a power generator that took plasma energy directly from the planet's core and harnessed it to create electricity and heat. Adjacent to the Palace, across tributaries of the Solleu River, was the hangar in which the royal family maintained their starship, and in which the Space Fighter Corps maintained their small fleet of N-1 starfighters. It was a royal family tradition that each new ruler of the planet Naboo add a tower or turret to the Palace, and to enhance the beauty of existing structures. (IWE1)

Theed Palace Space Vessel Engineering Corps
this Naboo manufacturer created most of the starship designs used in the royal volunteer fleet, including the J-type transport used by Queen Amidala and the N-1 fighter. (X1)

Theed School of Technology and Engineering
this was one of the most prestigious schools for technology and engineering, located on the planet Naboo in the capital city of Theed. (GMR1)

Theed Spaceport
built with speed and urgency in the years following the Battle of Naboo, the Theed Spaceport was a utilitarian spaceport designed to handle the traffic of visitors and tourists as well as three diplomats: Queen Jamillia, Senator Padme' Amidala, and Supreme Chancellor Palpatine. The Naboo built the spaceport on the lowlands below the cliffs that supported the city of Theed and the royal hangar. Construction of the spaceport was funded by the reparations received from the settlements provided after the Trade Federation's invasion of Naboo. The builders maintained a certain level of aesthetic, however, given the main platform a sweeping, elegant curve that matched the cliffside. (IWE2)

Theek
this was the Jawa word for "run." (T4)

Theelin
a near-human species that has been bred out of existence. (DE1)

Theen Fida
this Anx was a student of the Force, training under Jedi Master Tsui Choi in the period leading up to the Battle of Naboo. Theen Fida and Tsui Choi were part of a team dispatched to Yitheeth to locate the Yinchorri command center. After discovering that the Yonchorri were not on the water-covered world, the team traveled to Yinchorr itself to meet up with Mace Windu's team. Unfortunately for Master Choi, Theen Fida was killed by Yinchorri warriors while guarding the Jedi's remaining starship. (AOW)

Theen Ocean
this was the smallest of the three seas located on the planet Genesia. (FBS)

Thek, Gadon
this dark-skinned man, a native of the Lower City of Taris, was the leader of the Hidden Bek swoop gang during the height of the Great Sith War, more than 4,000 years before the Battle of Yavin. As a member of the Hidden Bek, Gadon had seen the Black Vulkars move in an take control of the planet, and he held no love whatsoever for Davik Kang. (KOTOR)

Thel
this was one of the most common names given to male Corellians. (GMR9)

Thelaa
this contemporary of Hari Seldona was a student at Alderaan University, and a secret dissident during the rise of the New Order. She was a quiet student of music, and heralded from a backwater world that has thus far avoided Imperial invasion. She had a good deal of promise, but the oppression of the Empire seemed to dampen her creative spirit. It was later discovered that many of her later works were actually plagiarized versions of works created by the forgotten composer Salyer. She was expelled, and she fled into the wilderness where she had been secretly running guns to the Alliance. She was captured by Imperial agents who had been following her, and was subjected to deep interrogation. The agents tried to have her transported to the newly-arrived Death Star for further interrogation, but their calls were ignored. Thelaa and her torturers were killed when the Death Star destroyed Alderaan. (ISU)

Thella
this woman led a group of infiltrators to Kelada, during the height of the Galactic Civil War. (SWJ6)

Thel-Tanis, Darra
this young girl was training to be a Jedi Knight, under the tutelage of Soara Antana, at the same time Anakin Skywalker was training with Obi-Wan Kenobi, some five years after the Battle of Naboo. She was easily distinguished by her bright, copper- and -gold-colored hair, and by the ribbons she wove into her Padawan braid. Darra was badly injured during a mission to rescue Old Republic scientists on Haariden, after taking a blaster bolt in the thigh. Note that Jedi Quest: The False Peace indicates that Darra was injured on Norah. The bolt had been laced with a chemical charge, and she went into shock almost immediately. She recovered from her injuries, and later helped her Master oversee the relief efforts on the planet Nuralee. Despite her trials, Darra was known among her fellows studetns as a bright and shining individual, full of life and gusto that was infectious. Darra and Master Antana were later chosen as part of a four-pair team to travel to Korriban and apprehend Granta Omega and Jenna Zan Arbor. Darra, along with Anakin and fellow students Tru Veld and Ferus Olin, accompanied their Masters to Korriban. On the remote world, they found themselves besieged by the Dark Side of the Force, and the Padawans were helpless as Anakin began to argue with them at every turn. They realized that Ferus - not Anakin - had been chosen for early promotion to the rank of Jedi Knight, but couldn't understand why Anakin would allow his anger to come before the mission. After Tru was hurt, the team regrouped for a final attack. In the battle, Darra was forced to leap in front of several blaster bolts to protect Ferus. She took the blasts in the chest, and later died from her injuries. Note that Jedi Quest: The False Peace also names this character as Darra Haariden. (JQ1, JQ4, JQ9, JQ10)

Thelvin Order of Barundi
this sect sought to completely isolate itself from the rest of galactic society, several thousand years before the Battle of Yavin. To ensure their isolation, the Thelvins even developed their own language, allowing them to speak amongst themselves without being understood. The basis of the Thelvin Order was the attainment of perpetual happiness, and their society's laws were very strict in promoting this happiness. Any member of society which did not work toward harmony was subject to immediate capital punishment, and were beaten to death with thorny flowers which exuded a deadly poison. (UYV)

Themfar
this was a potent neurotoxin developed by the Malkite Poisoners, during the height of the New Order. (EGW, AEG)

Themion
this man was a member of the police force on Eriadu, during the Yuuzhan Vong invasion of the galaxy. Themion was in charge of the interrogation of Anakin Solo and Tahiri Veila, after they tried to save the life of Kelbis Nu. (EVR)

Themog
this former member of the Corellian Security Force was drummed out of the force after being wounded in an argument with a suspect. The injury left him without the use of his left eye, which he covered with a black patch like a pirate. The suspect admitted that he had tried to bribe Themog into releasing him, but later testified that Themog tried to raise the amount of the bribe before accepting it. Exiled from law enforcement, Themog eventually turned to a life of crime, and became the crimelord controlled who much of the underground activity on the planet Chrona, during the early years of the New Republic. Themog worked to strengthen his position of power by bribing Arno Gallorr and Moira Kruger, hoping to counteract the work of Mortris Gallorr to free the planet from criminal control. Unknown to most, he was also romantically involved with Moira, and convinced her to allow him to use the Grinder Dance Hall as a hideout. When Mortris began hiring mercenaries to protect the citizens of Corestrike, Themog kidnapped Mortris, his grandson Selmar, and his daughter-in-law Serise. He held them ransom against a group of determined freelance protectors, until his thugs were defeated and Themog was defeated in a firefight. (SWJ12)

Thene'
this is the capital city of the planet Marngar III. The Imperial university's main campus on the planet is located here. (SWJ4)

this was one of the two largest agricultural centers found on the planet Krant. Like Peche, Thennes was protected by a token police force during the last decades of the Old Republic. (GBC)

Thennqora
a alien race which greatly influenced Saffa paintings, after they made initial contact several millenia before the Galactic Civil War. (HTTE)

Thent Squadron
this was a group of Army troopers dispatched by the Empire to overtake the New Republic base on Saarn, shortly after the re-appearance of Grand Admiral Thrawn. (SWJ6)

Theonnrl
this alien was a noted forger who worked from a base on Balmorra during the early years of the New Republic. (GUN)

Theory of Universal Reference
this was the name given to the scientific discoveries of the ancient Drall scientist Tiran, who proved that space and time were connected, and that the speed of light was an absolute bonudary that could not be crossed. His theories were proven some 10,000 years before the discovery of hyperspace, and were once deemed to be irrefutable. Millennia later, investigation into the Theory revealed that it did not preclude an object traveling faster than light; it just prohibited an object traveling at the speed of light. (MBS)

Theosidicc Sirrap Treblif
this Elomin author wrote The History of Two Peoples, One Planet. (GG12)

Theran Listeners
the members of this cult of Force-sensitive individuals could sometimes hear the voices of the Spook crystals through the Force. Found mainly on the planet Nam Choris, they were the latter-day versions of the prophet Theras, and often had healing powers as well as insight and foresight. (UF)

Therangen
this black rock was used as a fuel source by many primitive races, but was known to be unstable and volatile if handled improperly. (KOTOR)

Therans
this group of Oldtimers from the planet Nam Chorios followed the word of the prophet Theras, and strove to keep inbound and outbound traffic away from the planet. The exact reason for their actions was lost over several centuries, but the Therans continued to drive off larger ships, an action deemed by the Newcomers as an attempt to keep Nam Chorios isolated from the galaxy. A civil war of sorts between the Therans and the Newcomers raged for a number of years until the basis for the feud was revealed by Luke Skywalker and Leia Organa-Solo. (POT)

Theras
one of the original political prisoners left on the planet Nam Chorios by the Grissmaths, Theras was attuned to the Force. He was contacted by the Spook crystals, which had realized that the drochs used to kill the prisoners were growing in power. The Spooks feared that the drochs would leave Nam Chorios and inflict the galaxy, and used Theras as a sort of prophet. He brought word to the Oldtimers that the drochs could secret themselves on any ship leaving the planet, and that ships of large size could house enough drochs to consume the galaxy. Theras and his followers reworked the planetary defenses to fire on incoming and outgoing ships over a certain mass, in an effort to prevent the drochs from leaving. (POT)

Ther-das
this Arcona was educated at the Lerct Historical Institute, before serving as the acquisitions director for the Zuliria Museum of Antiquities, working in the ancient weaponry department. During his studies at Lerct, Ther-das became addicted to salt, and spent many years trying to overcome his addiction. After growing tired of the routine at the museum, Ther-das gathered some acquaintences to him and formed the Zulirian Swordmasters. Originally dedicated to the study of weaponry, Ther-das began pushing the group to use their collected weapons and skills as vigilantes. (AIR)

Thergum Pits
located on the planet Essowyn, this was the primary mining operation founded by Messert Mines Corporation. They purchased the rights to the Pits from the Tresycht nation of Saurtons, and used Tresycht forces to subjugate the nearby Yiszte nation to avoid any contention over ownership of the land. (PG1)

Thermabag
this small sack is used to keep foods warm or cold during transport. Essentially, they are insulated lunch bags. (SWJ9)

Therma-canteen
this ancient form of container was used to transport liquids while maintaining their temperature. (TOJC)

Thermajug
this was a vessel that coud carry a beverage or soup and maintain its temperature over a long period of time. (SWJ2)

Thermal Bomb
this was a form of explosive developed by the Confederacy of Independent Systems during the height of the Clone Wars. Rather than exploding and spraying an area with shrapnel or other material, a thermal bomb detonated into a ball of incredible heat, burning everything within its blast radius into a charred husk. (MBS)

Thermal cape
a poncho made from metallic foil and spider silk, it keeps the wearer's body heat inside. They are often called T-capes. (SME, COJ)

Thermal Detonator
a round bomb used by smugglers and mercenaries, most of these weapons originated from a design first built on Talesia. They are essentially a casing which contained a shaped charge of baradium. The use of baradium made the weapon extremely dangerous, even for the being who threw it, as the element was highly unstable. Depending on the size of the charge, a thermal detonator would essentially atomize all material within a spherical area centered on the charge itself. Anything outside the range of the blast sphere remained virtually untouched. The baradium was activated by a switch, which would release a short burst of energy into the baradium mass, causing it to explode. (ROTJ, CPL, ROE, EGW)

Thermal Grenade
this explosive device generated an intense ball of heat when detonated, literally melting everything in its blast radius. They were illegal to possess or use, during the height of the New Order. (UYV)

Thermal Mine
this form of explosive device was employed in bringing down large buildings. It had a controllable blast, which enabled demolitions crews to safely bring down structures. (IA)

Thermal Shield
developed some 4,000 years before the Battle of Yavin, thermal shields were a form of personal shield that protected the user against intense differences in temperature. The primary motivation for these shields came from fiefighters and other groups that worked around open flames, although they were later modified for military use. The only drawback to a military thermal shield was that it offered no protection against projectile or energy weapons. (KOTOR)

Thermal suit
a thin, lightweight coverall worn over normal clothing that provides protection from extreme temperatures. They are often referred to as T-suits. (SME, COJ)

Thermal Veristat
this device was used in the construction of racing engines, and was responsible for regulating the internal temperature of these engines. Because of the incredible heat they generate, thermal veristats were required in podracer engines. (IG1)

Thermal Well
this weapon was developed by the Alliance, in an effort to reduce the risks involved with using pure-baradium thermal detonators. Alliance technicians blended baradium with stabilized ytterbium, resulting in a denser explosive that ignited instead of exploding when energized. The thermal reaction is capable of generating thousands of degrees of heat in a short time, literally melting everything in its "blast radius." (ROE)

Thermaplast
this material was used to form pre-fab shelters. (GG10)

Therma-slice
this was a culinary device which used microfine heating lasers to cut through food and heat the individual slices. (HNN4)

Thermex
a highly-combustible explosive. (POM)

Thermic Baster
this was an outdated form of oven, used for slowly cooking meats. (IWE1)

Thermite
an explosive material used by military commandos, thermite was transported in a gel form that allowed it to be poured into a vessel for remote detonation. (SWJ12, GMR1)

Thermite Boring Charge
this directed explosive was used to destroy specific targets, such as locking mechanisms. The charge was positioned to bore into its target, destroying everything it encountered along its path. Thermite charges burned with an intensely bright light. (KT)

Thermocapsulary Dehousing Assistor
an automaton used to break down heat-generating devices. They are menial laborers. C-3PO called R2-D2 one while R2-D2 was trying to escape from the Tantive IV. (SWN)

Thermocom
this device is used to detect the operating temperature of machinery and equipment, in order to prevent them from overheating. The thermocom is connected by a shielded cable to onboard shutdown systems, which bring the equipment to a halt when the operating temperature reaches critical levels. The temperature levels can be set into the thermocom by the manufacturer, or modified by the user. Modifications to the temperature settings are highly discouraged, however. (RF)

Thermo-converter
this is any device or material which generates electricity when heated. (GG2)

Thermoenergetic Screen
this form of heat protection was developed by the Old Republic during the height of the Clone Wars. Using a thermoenergetic screen, a clone trooper could be encapsulated in a small pod, which could be ejected from a transport ship so that the trooper could reach a drop point on a planet's surface. This eliminated the need for large, expensive dropships that provided enemies with a large target. The small, expendable pods were hard to detect, allowing a trooper to reach the surface swiftly and undetected. The thermoenergetic screen deflected the incredible heat that was built up upon entry into a planet's atmosphere, keeping the trooper inside safe. (TCD)

Thermoguard Jumpsuit
this expensive form of bodysuit was developed to allow the wearer to evade infrared and thermal-imaging scanners. The thermoguard suit was created with a surface cooling unit that maintained an external temperature equal to that of the wearer's environment. This meant that, to infrared and thermal sensors and other devices, the wearer was virtually invisible. (GMR6)

Thermon
this planet is orbited by several moons made of pure methane. The methane exists in liquid form below the crust, and gravitation pressure often cracks this crust. The result is a spectacular display of methan geysers. (THG)

Thermoskin
this was the high-tech bodysuit developed for starfighter pilots during the early years of the New Order. It allowed fighter pilots on deepspace missions to retain large amounts of body heat, which gave the pilot the option to divert some power from life support to shields. (EVR)

Thernbee
this huge, four-legged creature was native to the mountains of Almania. They were covered with thick, white fur, and had small heads punctuated by short ears and striking blue eyes. Thernbees had a long, thin, prehensile tail which could be used like a whip. They drooled constantly, and needed sunlight in order to survive. They were semi-sentient and somewhat psychic, and were able to establish mental links to other beings with similar abilities. They consumed primarily leaves and vegetation, but would also eat the slimy slugs and snakes which inhabit the underbrush. They were very powerful, yet docile, creatures. The bite of the thernbee had a numbing effect on its victim, since the saliva of the thernbee had an anesthetic toxic in it. This caused the prey to stop moving, allowing the thernbee to kill it with little resistance. Because of their semi-sentient minds, Luke Skywalker petitioned the New Republic to ensure they were protected. (TNR, WOTC, PJSB)

Thes Cligris
this Duros trader operated his business from a base onboard the Birthright, which he purchased just after the institution of the New Order. Although outwardly a businessbeing, Thes was also a supporter of the Alliance, and provided the Birthright as a transport whenever it was needed. (SOG)

Thesme Sector
this sector of the galaxy was located on the Outer Rim Territories. (SWMW)

Thesme Trace
this interstellar trade route intersected the Gordian Reach, along the Hydian Way, at the planet Thesme. (WOA26, SWMW)

Thespar Trode
this female Ishi Tib was a friend of Danni Quee. Like Danni, Thespar found herself unemployed when New Republic Intelligence took over the work they had been doing to disrupt the gravitic devices of the Yuuzhan Vong. She ended up on Calamari in the wake of the Battle of Coruscant. (DW)

Thespian Union
this was a group of students at Imperial Academies throughout the galaxy which put on plays and operas as part of their extracurricular activities. (IR)

Theta-288
this was the callsign of the clone commando who was part of the squad assigned to protect Lorca Oviedo to a conference on Aviles Prime, during the height of the Clone Wars. On the return trip from Aviles Prime, Theta-288 and his comrades became expendable when Oviedo tried to fake an attack by Separatist forces near Asturias. Oviedo had been plotting to sell rigged weaponry to Wat Tambor and the Confederacy of Independent Systems, covering it up by appearing to survive a Separatist attack on his ship. The droid forces dispatched to Asturias were unable to destroy the clone commandos who were escorting Oviedo, as Theta-288 and a handful of his squadmates survived the crash-landing on the moon. They managed to reach Oviedo just as he was finalizing his plans with Tambor, and they took Oviedo prisoner. Theta-288 and his fellow clones struggled to return to Oviedo's ship, which was basically unharmed as part of the ruse, but they were continually harrased by battle droids. Ultimately, only Theta-288 survived to reach Coruscant with Oviedo. Once one Coruscant, Theta-288 turned Oviedo over to the authorities. (T22)

this bacta transport ship was owned by Cargo Consolidated, Incorporated. It made regular runs from Mrlsst to the Core, stopped at several worlds along the Shapani Bypass. (TSIA)

Theta-class Barge
this ship was designed by the Empire as a sort of dropship, although its primary mission was not to deploy troops into battlezones. Instead, the Theta-class barge was created to deploy AT-AT walkers into battle, with the support of Sentinel-class shuttles. (NEGV)

Theta-class Shuttle
many considered the Theta-class shuttle to have been the precursor to the Lambda-class shuttle, since they shared many of the same design elements. The Theta-class shuttle was developed during the last years of the Old Republic, as a transport for diplomats and other luminaries. The lower two wings of the Theta-class shuttle were triangular in shape, and were capable of moving up or down to assist with maneuvering. The upper wing was blade-shaped, and was mounted lengthwise atop the shuttle. Chancellor Palpatine had a specially-designed Theta-class T-2c shuttle built for his use as Darth Sidious by Cygnus Spaceworks. Inside was a complete Sith medical facility, from which he could coerce his guests into doing his bidding. (TCG10, X3)

Thi'in Lis
this Abinyshi served the Alliance as a Special Forces operative during the Galactic Civil War. (SWJ14)

Thiirn, Mosara
this woman was, at one time, a Lieutenant in the Alliance's Special Force division. She deserted at the height of a pitched battle with the Assassin's Guild on Archais, and presented herself to Imperial Lieutnenant Colonel Covell. Luckily for the Alliance, she had not been intrusted with secret information, so her defection led to little initial damage. However, Thiirn later joined Hydrospeare Corporation's Design Team Beta, and her work was used against the Alliance in battle. (AIR)

Thila
this female Sullustan once sold slaves to Jabba the Hutt, only to discover that Jabba was serving them to his rancor for sport and entertainment. She suddenly became rich by selling holovids of the rancor's feedings about fifteen years before the Galactic Civil War. It was obvious that she cared little for the slaves she sold, which earned her the nickname "The Butcher." She was the Captain of the Arkanian Dawn, the Outer Rim's most feared slave ship. It was a well-known fact that anyone who was taken aboard the Dawn never returned. Of course, this was all the ultimate ruse, engineered by Thila and other anti-Imperials who saw the way Palpatine's New Order was treating aliens and promoting slavery. Thila used complex animation and filming to create the rancor holos, which she placed on the market herself. She then purchased the Dawn and began to make a bigger name for herself, spreading rumors about the slaves she picked up. In reality, the slaves she took into the Dawn were released onto Alliance safeworlds. Thila has liberated a multitude of slaves from Imperial and non-Imperial camps, helping to spread the word that the New Order should be overthrown. (GG9)

Thimiar
this small rodent was native to the planet Shili, and was the favored food of the Togruta race. Because the thimiar went into strange convulsions when bitten by a Togruta, many other beings believed that the Togruta actually poisoned the thimiar. This was proven to be false; the thimiar simply experienced post-mortem muscle contractions. (PJSB)

Thimram, Savuud
one of the Emperor Palpatine's original Dark Side Adepts, Savuud Thimram was once native to the planet Chandrila. The son of a noble family, Savuud was discovered by Emperor Palpatine to have a strong connection to the Force. Palpatine ensured that he was taken to Byss, ostensibly as part of a pleasure trip, where Savuud was warped by the power of the Dark Side of the Force. Over time, he became one of Palpatine's most trusted students, and became the Dark Side Adept who oversaw the activities at The Emperor's Citadel on Byss. (DE1, DESB, PH)

Despite his Imperial ties, Thine was more or less indifferent about the Galactic Civil War. (PSPG)

ThinHut
this was a type of shelter used by scouts and explorers.

Third Battle of Yavin
this was the name given to the struggle to defend the Jedi praxeum, located on Yavin 4, from the predations of Brakiss and the Second Imperium. Brakiss himself believed he was being summoned to Yavin 4 by the reborn Emperor Palpatine, but he later discovered that the Emperors presence was a sham, perpetrated by four former members of the Imperial Royal Guard. Three of them guarded a large meditation chamber, while the fourth used a vast collection of sound bites and holo-clips of Palpatine to create an illusion of his presence. Brakiss, as well as the entire crew of the Shadow Academy, were fooled by the ruse, until the Shadow Academy attacked Yavin 4 and the Jedi Academy. As Brakiss came to demand why Palpatine was ignoring him, he discovered the trickery of the four guards. He killed the three protectors in his anger, but the fourth escaped. He managed to activate the Shadow Academy's self-destruct systems before he fled, killing Brakiss in the explosion. (GMR5, JUS)

Among the other ships in the Third Fleet were the Mon Adapyne and the Elegos A'Kla. (UF)

Third General Survey
an Old Republic comprehensive examination of the galactic arms and the planets located in them. The survey, initiated some 123 years before the onset of the Clone Wars, discovered the planet Brath Qella, but the contact ship it requested took eight more years to reach the planet. By that time, asteroid impacts had destroyed the planet's ecosystem, and the Qella were extinct. The Third General Survey was 61% complete when the Clone Wars broke out and the survey was cancelled. (BTS, HNN5)

Third Ilthmar Defense

this was the nickname Kell Tainer used for his R2 astromech droid, because the droid would always provide the number thirteen when asked to give a random number. Kell asked Eurrsk Thri'ag to fix the glitch, but kept the nickname Thirteen. Its actual designation was R2-D609. The droid was destroyed in the battle over Ession, in which Wraith Squadron defeated the Implacable. (WS)

Th'iruckai
this bipedal, reptilian race is native to the planet Th'irus. At this time of the Galactic Civil War, they were a bronze-age race which had developed a high degree of medical knowledge as well as skill in the use of poisons and neurotoxins. Groups of Th'iruckai banded together in tribes led by Teruks, and the tribes wages bloody wars against each other over the millennia. When the first explorers found their planet, the Teruks realized that they could gain an advantage over their rivals if they could obtain high-tech weapons. During the Galactic Civil War, a band of scouts landed on the planet and were fought over by several clans. The scouts, in talking to the teruks, realized that the inter-clan wars were being fought because of an ancient misunderstanding. The scouts worked with the tribes to establish a cease-fire and begin peace negotiations between the clans. (GMS)

Thiss
this fire-blackened stump of an enormous wroshyr tree was one of the primary landing field maintained by the Wookiees of Rwookrrorro. It was here, in the wake of the Yuuzhan Vong surrender at Courscant some five years after their invasion of the galaxy began, that a monument to Chewbacca was erected. Carved from the branch of a huge wroshyr tree, the portrait of Chewbacca was created to honor his life and his contributions to peace in the galaxy. When Han Solo arrived to witness the dedication of the portrait, he brought with him his son Anakin's lightsaber, which had been recovered from the possession of Supreme Overlord Shimrra. With Ralrra's permission, Han ignited the lightsaber and drove it into the branch near Chewbacca's portrait, imbedding the lightsaber in the wood of the tree. Han then turned it off, leaving it as a reminder of the valor and virtue of Chewbacca. (HT, UF)

Thisspian
this was the native language of the Thisspian race. (PJSB)

Thisspian
this race of part humanoid, part serpentine beings was native to the planet Thisspias. The upper body of a Thisspian was humanoid in shape, and covered with long hair. The lower half of their body was serpentine, lacking legs and having scales that matched the color of their hair. While the tail of a Thisspian could be used to carry a heavy load, most individuals simply coiled their tails underneath them and moved about on repulsorchairs. In combat, the tail of a Thisspian could be used to constrict their opponent. During the Clone Wars, the Thisspians grudgingly agreed to support the Old Republic at the request of Oppo Rancisis. However, with the rise of the Empire, the Thisspian monarch was executed by an Imperial officer. The population was quick to rebel, and the Alliance tried to assist them in regaining their freedom. However, the Empire cracked down on the planet's security, forcing the Alliance to abandon the planet temporarily. In the aftermath of the Battle of Endor, a Thisspian Crown Prince returned to his homeworld to take retake control. The general populace, however, saw the return of the monarchy as simply a changing of bad leadership. (PJSB, UANT)

Thisspias
this Inner Rim planet was the homeworld of the Thisspian race. One of the most famous Thisspains was the Jedi Master Oppo Rancisis. Note that the galaxy map inside Star Wars Insider, issue 65, places Thisspias in the Expansion Region of the galaxy. (IG1, IWE1, SWI65, PJSB)

As his personal wealth grew, so did his collection of creatures. Thog was also a personal friend of Imperial Captain Dadefra. (OE)

Thogk
this was the name of the traditional Gamorrean club. On Gamorr, a thogk was made from a heavy branch from the gorgt tree, into which a long spike was driven. Whenever necessary, however, a thogk could be formed from any sturdy wood. The name for the weapon derived from the words meaning "log with a spike in it". (UANT)

It was believed that their leader was none other than Boba Fett himself, although only Han Solo had any evidence to support this rumor. (TT, UF)

TholCorp
this small corporation was infamous for manufacturing neuronic whips and other slaving weapons. (AIR)

Tholian
this alien race was caught up in an intense battle with Jedi Master Yoda, several years before the Clone Wars. (YDR)

Tholme
this Jedi Master was one of Quinlan Vos' early teachers, and was a noted Jedi Healer. Master Tholme was the watchman of the sector which contained the planet Kiffex and Kiffu, during the time when Kulrin Vos was the Sheyf of Kiffu. It was Master Tholme who discovered Quinlan's psionic abilities, and asked Kurlin if the boy could be taken to Coruscant for training. Kurlin agreed, but Tinte Vos argued that Quinlan should remain on Kiffu as a Guardian. She used Quinlan's abilities to discover the reasons behind the deaths of Quian and Pethros Vos, an action that left Quinlan nearly insane. Master Tholme resigned his post as watchman and dedicated himself to repairing Quinlan's mind and training him as a Jedi. Master Tholme was later disptached to Kiffex to monitor Quinlan, during the investigation into the re-emergence of Volfe Karkko, and helped Quinlan defeat the feral Anzati warriors. Master Tholme then presented Quinlan with the star-shaped amulet which was the emblem of the Vos clan. Quinlan's psychometric powers were able to read the amulet, which revealed the truth about the deaths of Quinlan's parents at the hands of the Anzati under the control of Volfe Karkko. Later, Tholme was dispatched to Ryloth to mediate the succession of the head-clan which had been led by Pol Secura. He was captured by the Morgukai warrios Tsyr and Bok while trying to protect the Secura heir, Nat Secura. He was forced to feign death in order to be united with the young Twi'lek. He used the trick years later, during the Clone Wars, when he traveled to Devaron with the Dark Woman and Aayla Secura to infiltrate the estate of Vien'sai'malloc. Tholme and the Dark Woman were lured into a trap by Aurra Sing, who had planted false information about the location of a Separatist base on the planet. Aurra Sing trapped both of them in an abandoned mine, then set out to destroy Aayla Secura. Knowing that taking their lives was all that mattered to Aurra Sing, Tholme and the Dark Woman placed themselves into a death-like trance. The loss of two Jedi Masters affected Aurra Sing, who dropped her guard long enough for Aayla Secura to disarm and capture her. The Jedi Masters, injured but alive, were transported back to Coruscant for treatment. Early in the Clone Wars, Tholme and Sora Bulq confronted Count Dooku on Bakura. Bulq was captured in the fighting, and Master Tholme lost his left eye in a lightsaber duel with Dooku. Later, Master Tholme worried almost constantly about the fact that he suggested that Quinlan Vos be used as a secret agent, to be dispatched to join Count Dooku during the Clone Wars. Quinlan's actions indicated that he had turned completely to the Dark Side of the Force, and many questions Tholme's decision to send him on the mission. Tholme himself wondered if he had made the right choice, and was forced to track down Quinlan to learn the truth for himself. Tholme eventually tracked down Sora Bulq on Saleucami, after Quinlan learned of its location from Salje' Tasha. On Saleucami, the former allies fought a desperate lightsaber battle, only to have Tholme chose to escape rather than fight. He didn't leave the planet, however, and set out to destroy the cloning facilities Sora Bulq had built in the magma caverns. Tholme continued to harass the Separatists for months, while the main Republic force pummeled the Separatists on the surface. (OWS, DRKN, ROP, J3, RT, RSOS)

Tholon
this planet, originally scouted by Casti Tholon for Rim Commercial Mining, was named for her. It was a desolate world of rocky wastes, but proved to be incredibly rich with valuable ores and minerals. The planet's resources allowed RCM to become quite profitable, and they named the planet for its discoverer. It was, in fact, the first world that Casti Tholon ever scouted. (AIR)

Tholon, Casti
this bald-pated woman was considered one of the most loyal graduates of the Galactic Outdoor Survival School. A native of Sardorna, she grew up as an orphan aboard one of the space stations which orbited the planet Duro. Despite the fact that she was human, the Duros accepted her into their society, and Casti soon found that she enjoyed the company of Duros over that of other humans. During her time at GOSS, she was known to be one of Barosa Warren's favorite students, and the two developed a friendship over time. They worked together after her graduation, with Warren assisting her while she worked for Rim Commerical Mining and Mero-Nepp Ores, but her work kept her away from OM813 more often than not. Despite the distance, Casti remained loyal to Warren and GOSS. (AIR)

Tholos
one of the Yevethan Aramadia-class starships assigned to guard the Black Nine installation against attack by the New Republic, the Tholos was under the command of Par Drann. It was the Tholos, making a routine jump into the ILC-905 system, which was attacked by the warships Vanguard, Indomitable, and Folna. The combined fire of the Republic ships, along with several well-placed bombing runs, rendered the Tholos without adequate control. The ship tumbled through the atmosphere of the third planet of the ILC-905 system and was destroyed. (TT)

Tholoth
see Toloth (LEV)

Thom
this plant produced a sweet-tasting fruit. However, unripe thom fruit was exceedingly sour. (EOV, GMR9)

Thomork
this planet was the site of Emperor Palpatine's World Devastator construction facility, until it was closed down. Official Imperial word indicated a hive virus wiped out the employees, a fact that was substantiated by the deaths of 450 workers. The workers were actually killed by stormtroopers. This ruse allowed the shipyards to built the World Devastators in secret. (DESB)

Thomquizarr Base
Vocis Kenit was promoted and assigned a dirtside post at this Imperial Navy base after his tour of duty aboard the Semqi Pefis. (FOP)

Thomree
this was one of the most common surnames found among the human population of Corellia. (GMR9)

Thomree, Dupas
Thomree served as the Corellian Diktat during the early years of the New Order and the Galactic Civil War. He made a deal with Palpatine, which allowed Thomree to rule the Corellian sector as he wished, as long as he paid public homage to the newly-named Emperor. Thomree paid his taxes and supplied war materiel, while doing his best to keep the Corellian sector free of Imperial mandates. When he died suddenly, Daclif Gallamby was named Diktat. (AS)

Thon
an alien known to the Old Republic as a Wharl (or Tchuukthai), Thon was in reality a sentient being who chose to keep his species and his culture a well-guarded secret. Thon trained in the ways of the Force, and eventually became a Jedi Master. He was assigned as the watchman of the Stenness System, and was living and training on Ambria just prior to the Great Sith War. When he first came to Ambria, the Dark Side of the Force was prevalent on the planet. Master Thon pushed the Dark Side back, forcing it into Lake Natth. His experiences on Ambria taught him of the virtue of the Light Side, and he tried to convince other Jedi Masters about the dangers of the Krath. He was supposed to have continued the Jedi training of Andur Sunrider, but Andur's death changed those plans. Instead, Thon became the teacher of Andur's wife, Nomi. Her stubbornness was broken when Thon was attacked by Bogga the Hutt. In the battle, Thon gave his lightsaber to Nomi, and she used it with unusual skill for an untrained Jedi candidate. Thon realized that Nomi was the special Jedi he was prophecied to train, and took her under his tutelage. Later, he was part of the assembly of Jedi Masters who met on Deneba to discuss the Krath uprising in the Empress Teta system. (DE1, DA, COTF, DLS, TOJC, EGP)

Thon
a continent on Alderaan, known for its wildlife reserves. (SWR)

ThonBoka
a Oswaft term that means StarCave, the ThonBoka is a huge nebula which forms a sac-like refuge from the vacuum of space. The ThonBoka is home to a large number of vacuum-breathing species, including the Oswaft. The nebula, about 12 light-years across, is composed of huge amounts of pre-organic molecules. A single hole exists in the sac, and is the only entrance to the StarCave. In the center of the ThonBoka are three young, blue-white stars, each about a lightyear apart from the others. None of them have any planets. In the center of these three stars lies an exact, miniature replica of the cave, built for the Oswaft Elders from every conceivable gemstone in the galaxy. (LCS)

Thonner
this planet, the fourth world in the Thonner System, was located in the Moddell Sector of the galaxy. Its surface was covered with shallow salt seas, and broken by small chains of sandy islands. Thonner was first settled just twenty-five years before the Battle of Yavin, with colonists forming small collections of buildings around the newly-discovered freshwater springs. After it was settled, the planet's landmasses were found to be excellent habitats for the lichens that grew on Maya Kovel. Spores were inadvertently transported to Thonner, where they took hold on the islands and quickly covered the land with their lush growth. During the Old Republic, Thonner served as something of a penal colony for the Ayrou, which led to several legends that claimed the Ayrou Tessent was hidden somewhere in the seas of Thonner. (GMR9)

Thonnerman
this was the name used to describe the human settlers on the planet Thonner. Over time, the term became something of a generic term to describe the fisherfolk who lived and worked on Thonner, including a growing population of Kian'thar. The two races existed in tightly-knitted communities, with the Kain'thar handling aquatic activities while the humans handled things above the water. (GMR9)

Thonnerwrot

After the informant known only as Ryn 115 provided Judder Page and Pash Cracken with a holowafer containing important data, Thorsh was one of a handful of beings who were entrusted with the data it contained. He and three Biths managed to escape from the prison camp, using carfeully hidden speederbikes as getaway vehicles. However, their absence was quickly noted by the Yuuzhan Vong, and a search party was sent to recover them. After a long chase, only Thorsh survived to reach the Millennium Falcon, which had been alerted to the escape and dispatched to Selvaris to recover the fugitives. Once back on Calamari, Thorsh was debriefed and the information he had memorized was recorded for deciphering. This knowledge revealed that a convoy of prisoners from Selvaris was traveling to Coruscant - now terraformed into a simulacrum of Yuuzhan'tar - for sacrifice. With the data Thorsh provided, many of his other fellow prisoners were soon rescued. (UF)

a creature native to the planet Alderaan, the thranta was a reptavian of incredible beauty and diversion. No less that four species of thranta were once native to Alderaan, although only the common thranta - sometimes called the Alderaan of Bespin thranta - were exported to Bespin before Alderaan was destroyed. The great thranta, the pilotta thranta, and the balana thranta were all exterminated with the destruction of Alderaan. The thranta was basically a huge, floating wing, bouyed by a lighter-than-air bladder. They were very docile creatures, and could be easily domesticated. All four major subspecies could be trained to serve as transportation beasts, carrying individuals or entire barges. The average thranta lived or forty standard years or so. The thrantas that survive on Bespin, known as rodeo thrantas, were descendants of domesticated thranta that were used as flying mounts. The thranta was used on Alderaan as a transportation method as well as a show-beast. Smaller thranta were trained as recreational mounts. Some thranta were even transported to Coruscant, to be used as Imperial courier beasts. However, these thrantas wasted away without their natural environment to thrive in. The noxious fumes and emissions of the planet-wide city seemed to poison them. (ISU, WSW, WOTC)

Thranta Riders
these humanoids are a silent, mysterious group that have befriended the thrantas that inhabit Bespin's atmosphere. They have large cranial lobes and thin faces, and often tattoo themselves with wild, swirling patterns. They remain aloof from all of Bespin's culture, and little is known about their origins. They have developed a monthly sky rodeo, which they perform for the visitors to Bespin. They take their thrantas through a series of wild loops and spirals, and the riders themselves leap from their thrantas a fly through the clouds. Their thrantas then swoop under them and catch them. (ISU)

Thranta-class War Cruiser
developed by the Alderaanian military, the Thranta-class was one of the last warships built before Alderaan demilitarized.

Thrawn
this being, a member of the Chiss race, was a respected and honored commander in the Chiss Expansionary Defense force during the years following the Clone Wars. His abilities to accurately predict his opponent's moves, and his tactical genius, moved him through the ranks with a quiet speed. Thrawn - whose full name was Mitth'raw'nuruodo - claimed to have been one of the first to intercept the Imperial task force dispatched to destroy the Outbound Flight Project, when it appeared in the Unknown Regions. The Jedi, at the urging of then-Chancellor Palpatine, had arranged for the Jedi Masters to make a trial run through the Unknown Regions, in order to help prepare them for the discovery of life in another galaxy. Unknown to the Jedi, Palpatine had sent the task force - led by one of his trusted advisors, Kinman Doriana - to make sure they didn't get started. The fifteen-ship Imperial force was summarily wiped out by Thrawn's small fleet of ships, although Doriana's ship was allowed to survive. Doriana himself negotiated with Thrawn, explaining why they were in Chiss space and what the threat of the Jedi was. Thrawn saw two things in Doriana's speech: the necessity for removing the Jedi, and the order and stability that Palpatine's New Order could bring to the galaxy. He agreed to let Doriana return to Coruscant, and also agreed to destroy Outbound Flight. Palpatine spent the next several years searching for Thrawn, in hopes of bringing his military genius into the Empire. Thrawn, meanwhile, had learned from the Empire the use of pre-emptive strikes against his opponents. The problem was that the Chiss regarded such unprovoked attacks as a form of murder, and exiled Thrawn after one particularly bloody incident. The ruling Chiss stripped him of his rank and sent him to live on an uninhabited world near Imperial space. It was here that Captain Voss Parck finally caught up with Thrawn, convincing him to travel to Coruscant and serve Palpatine. Thrawn received private schooling in Imperial military academies, becoming a Captain shortly after the Battle of Yavin and quickly rising through the ranks as one of the few non-humans in the Navy. He later claimed that he contradicted the orders of Emperor Palpatine on at least four occasions; after the first, Palpatine learned that Thrawn was often correct. When Darth Vader was called by the Emperor to become more involved in his plot to capture Luke Skywalker, Vader assigned Thrawn to be the "guardian" of the Noghri on Honoghr. This exposure to Vader and Palpatine led to Thrawn's promotion to Vice Admiral, where he helped design the missile gunboat. As Vice Admiral, Thrawn oversaw the development of an Imperial outpost in the Pakuuni System, then assisted in the defense of Palpatine against Zaarin's treachery. However, Thrawn could not capture Zaarin before he made his escape into hyperspace. Further service to the Emperor garnered Thrawn a full promotion to Admiral, at which time he served on the Inexorable under Ysanne Isard. Sometime later, Thrawn was promoted to Grand Admiral, and he convinced both Isard and Soontir Fel that a group of clones created from Fel's genetic material would make perfect sleeper agents. They could pilot ships, and would be loyal to the Empire. During a political party in the Emperor's court, Thrawn made a rare judgmental error and wound up on the wrong side of a debate. This angered Palpatine, but it also gave him an excuse to move Thrawn out of the limelight. Thrawn and Parck were sent back to the Unknown Regions as punishment, but were continually fed Imperial support. While there, Thrawn and Parck set up the compound known as the Hand of Thrawn on Nirauan, drawing a military force from the Chiss who still supported Thrawn. During their tenure, they won over large sectors of the region. These sectors could have vastly increased the Empire, had not Palpatine died at Endor. Thrawn decided to hedge his bets, and began fortifying the Hand of Thrawn. He left Parck there, in charge of the planet, when he decided to return to the rest of the galaxy some four years after the Battle of Endor. He left word with Parck and the Chiss who supported him that, if he was ever reported dead, that they should wait ten years for his return. As one of the surviving Grand Admirals, Thrawn was able to quickly garner support from the Imperial remnants, obtaining control of the small fleet under the command of then-Captain Pellaeon. Using Noghri strike forces and clever deceptions - such as cloaking devices and clones recovered from the Mount Tantiss facility - Thrawn and his growing fleet began systematically retaking pieces of the New Republic a year later. He was successful until the Battle of Bilbringi, where his fleet was decimated and he was killed by his Noghri bodyguard, Rukh. In order to ensure that he would eventually return to the Chiss on Nirauan, as he promised, Thrawn had Parck and Fel maintain a clone of himself, ready for rebirth at the ten-year mark. The clone was never activated, as Luke Skywalker and Mara Jade discovered the ruse and exposed it to the New Republic. (HTTE, DFR, TLC, TIE, WG, SOP, VOF, GOF8)

Thrawn Pincer
a space warfare developed by Admiral Ackbar, the Thrawn Pincer was based primarily on the tactics of Grand Admiral Thrawn. In a given battle situation, Ackbar would bring in two separate fleets. The first would emerge from hyperspace inside the system which was under attack, and would engage the enemy's fleet. The second fleet would emerge on the far side of the system to await further orders. When the battle began to turn for the enemy, Ackbar would wait for the enemy to fire up the gravity well projectors of an Interdictor-class cruiser. The move would mean that Ackbar's forces couldn't leave the system via hyperspace, and gave the enemy a false sense of victory. On Ackbar's mark, the second fleet would use a microjump through hyperspace to join the primary fleet. The exact location of their exit from hyperspace would be determined by the placement of the enemy's Interdictor cruiser, but would almost always be behind the enemy fleet. This was the activation of the pincer, catching the enemy fleet between its own gravity shadow and the fresh Republic fleet. The Thrawn Pincer was first used during the liberation of Ciutric from Prince-Admiral Krennel, and proved to be quite effective. (IR)

Threadneedle Canyon
this high-walled, crescent-shaped canyon was located on the planet Nadiem. Some five months after the Battle of Geonosis, Threadneedle Canyon was the site of a skirmish between a group of clone troopers led by Luminara Unduli and Barriss Offee, and a droid army led by General Grievous. Grievous remained hidden from view, and directed his forces to trap the Republic's forces within the walls of Threadneedle Canyon. However, Barriss Offee and her troops literally played dead, and the Separatist forces passed them by. This allowed Offee's forces to attack the droids from the rear, crushing the Separatist forces between the two halves of the Republic's force. (CWA2)

The natives of Grathus had been expecting a load of waste treatment parts, but the shipping company delivered the droid by mistake. Xig Rollem purchased the droid and altered its programming, giving it the name Threna and employing the droid as a bartender at his cantina. The droid'd original programming was basically unaltered, though, and it acted with the utmosy courtesy to Rollem's patrons, most of whom were rowdy miners and hired hands. However, over time, Threna's demeanor actually rubbed off on the patrons, who gradually became more refined. (SWJ10)

They hunt by riding the thermals and winds along the coast, diving into the water to snatch fish and crustaceans. Despite their avian appearance, research has indicated that the thresher had mammalian ancestors. They are warm-blooded, and suckle their offspring. These creatures were extremely territorial, and developed social groups which helped protect their families. They also mate for life. Further research into the thresher's life revealed that they were instrumental in keeping the population of blue-ringed sea crabs down to a minimum, maintaining a balance in the oceanic food chain. The government of Tinallis outlawed the hunting of the avians, especially after several gourmet restaurants began serving thresher on their menus. (COG)

Throgg was the individual Luke discovered through the Force, in the Mos Eisley cantina, shortly after the Battle of Yavin. Throgg told Luke that he had once been a farmer, until the Empire took control of the galaxy and shattered what little peace he had. Despite his initial misgivings about returning to a farmer's life, Throgg accepted Luke's deal and managed the farm for a couple of seasons before Gavin Darklighter's uncle Huff tried to steal the farm by initiating an alien landowner tax. Gavin's father bought the farm before Huff could enforce the tax, and Throgg was able to remain on the farm, albeit as a tenant. (XWN, 3D1)

Thrum
this male Fia was an assistant to Primate Persha during the height of the Yuuzhan Vong invasion of the galaxy. When Leia Organa Solo and her husband, Han Solo, arrived at Galantos to try and restore communications to the Galactic Alliance, Thrum was forced into escorting them around Al'solib'minet'ri City, in an effort to keep them from learning the true reason behind the communications blackout. His efforts were not good enough, however, after Jaina Solo and the Chiss pilot Miza discovered that the Yevetha had been utterly wiped out by the Yuuzhan Vong. Much to Thrum's dismay, Leia and Han learned that the Fia had provided information on the Yevetha in exchange for resources and a temporary freedom. Thrum, however, decided that it was best to help the Solos plan a defense for Galantos when the Yuuzhan Vong decided that they no longer needed the Fia. (FH1)

Thrumble, Massad
this man owned an upscale cantina on Hurd's Moon. Thrumble was, at one time, an expert in robotics working for the Empire. As a Captain, he oversaw the creation of many series of droids, and retired from Imperial service as the Admiral in command of the Empire's Droid Research Facility. The human replica droid Guri sought him out in the hope that he could remove the programming that made her an assassin.

Thud Bug
this species of flying insect was bio-engineered from the sparkbee, which was once native to Yuuzhan'tar, the homeworld of the Yuuzhan Vong. The warriors used the flying bugs, known as nang hul, as projectile weapons, often imbedding them in their flesh or armor for use in battle. The silver-carapaced thud bugs could inflict simply physical trauma, or they could be modified to carry explosives which detonated on contact. In flight, a thuhd bug could reach speeds over 150 kilometers per hour. After the hostilities between the Yuuzhan Vong and the Galactic Alliance were resolved, and the Yuuzhan Vong were allowed to live on the planet Zonama Sekot, they found that thud bugs and many other bio-engineered weapons simply reverted to their animal forms and fled into the forests. This was one way in which Sekot forced the Yuuzhan Vong to give up their lust for war and embrace a more enlightened existence. (VP, JE, EVC, T, UF, NEGW)

this blue-eyed Alderaanian woman was born to the noble Dro family. She was known to the former inhabitants of Aldera for her ballads and songs. She performed solo, with a mandoviol to accompany her. She was dating Bornan Thul when she met a young Han Solo, who had stopped on Alderaan after being attacked by pirates. She enjoyed his company, much to the chagrin and jealousy of Thul. However, Solo was not one to remain in one place for too long, and she eventuallyt got over him and married Bornan. After they managed to escape the destruction of their homeworld, they had a son, Raynar, who was Force-sensitive. He joined the Jedi Academy on Yavin 4 shortly before his father disappeared. Aryn went to Yavin 4 to see if her son had any knowledge of Bornan's whereabouts, and to protect him. (TPS, TEP)

Thul, Bornan
this Alderaanian man was Aryn Dro's boyfriend. He was jealous of Han's bravery and the attention paid him by Aryn. After Han became a smuggler, Bornan eventaully won Aryn's favor. They were later married, and Bornan became an Alderaanian nobleman with a vast shipping empire. He and his wife were off-planet when the Death Star destroyed Alderaan, and so were among the handful of Alderaanians who survived the Galactic Civil War. After the Battle of Endor, Bornan became involved with the trade negotiations and alliances of the New Republic. He also began working with Nolaa Tarkona, and negotiated a deal for trade rights with her. While on his way to meet Han Solo at the New Republic Trade Council on Shumavar, he discovered that the cargoes he purchased from Fonterrat contained the Emperor's Plague, he attempted to destroy the storehouse from which they came. He was unable to do so, so he disapeared before delivering the cargo to Tarkona. She immediately placed a bounty on his head, for he retained the location of the storehouse. He managed to elude such notorious bounty hunters as Boba Fett, and kept the location of the storehouse away from Tarkona until he was found by his son, Raynar, and Zekk. When they tried to destroy the storehouse, Bornan sacrficed himself in order to kill Tarkona as well. She had unleashed the Emperor's Plague, but he was able to kill her with another of the viruses. (TPS, SHA, TEP)

Thul, Raynar
this spoiled, troublesome heir of Bornan and Aryn Dro Thul, Raynar was a student at Luke Skywalker's Jedi Academy on Yavin 4 at the same time Jacen and Jaina Solo are there. He always wore outrageous clothing styled in his family's royal colors, none of which go with each other. A bristly-haired blond youth, Raynar disliked Jacen Solo, especially Jacen's collection of exotic creatures. Raynar was bitten a number of times by Jacen's crystal snake. When the Shadow Academy attacked Yavin 4, Raynar discovered that he wasn't as skilled as he believed himself to be. In a quick fight with Brakiss' Dark Jedi, Raynar ended up face-down in a riverbank and missed most of the fighting. Raynar's demeanor changes, and he decided that he must work for the prestige he wanted, rather than claim it was his. Raynar and Jacen eventually overcame their differences and became good friends. After Han Solo delivered the news that Bornan had disappeared, Ranyar became entangled with the Diversity Alliance. After Zekk returned to Yavin 4, he and Raynar agreed to cooperate and search out Raynar's father. They took the Lightning Rod, and eventually located Bornan. Raynar assisted all his friends in defeating the forces of the Diversity Alliance. Later, during the Yuuzhan Vong invasion of the galaxy, Raynar was part of an elite force sent to Myrkr to locate the voxyn queen and destroy it. During the mission, he got to known Eryl Besa quite well. Despite the fact that she was older, they found themselves attracted to each other. However, Eryl was killed shortly after the Jedi team entered the Baanu Rass, and Raynar fell into despair. After being slashed by a voxyn, Raynar was transported to the Tachyon Flier, and tried to work with Lowbacca to repair the ship as a way to relieve the pain. The ship was stolen by Welk and Lomi Plo, who forced Lowbacca off the ship as they departed. When the small freighter was attacked by Yuuzhan Vong ships and destroyed, Raynar died along with his captors. (HTF, SHA, TEP, SBS, NJOSB)

Thula
this female Falleen was dispatched by Black Sun to the planet Drongar, during the height of the Clone Wars, to ensure that the production of bota continued to provide a steady stream to the criminal underworld. Thula arrived on Drongar with Squa Tront, and worked with Kadir to re-establish the pipeline. However, it soon became known that the bota plant was mutating at a rate that would render it useless as a medicinal wonder-drug in a short time. Thus, Kadir's plans changed, and he worked to acquire enough processed bota to return to Black Sun and retire. Thula and Squa Tront had other plans, however. When Kadir entrusted them with obtaining the bota and leaving it at a predetermined location, the two criminals opted to keep the bota for themselves. In its place, they left Kadir with a cargo crate filled with explosives. They hoped to eliminate the Nediji and claim the payment for the bota for themselves. Unknown to both, however, was that Kadir discovered their duplicity, and had set out to hunt them down. (MJH)

this semi-arid planet was known for its rich savannas, which were continually bombarded by lightning storms. The rocky outcroppings which broke the plains were charred black from being hit by lightning. This charred rock later served as a form of sustenance for unusual, bioluminescent moss that made the rocks glow with an eerie light. During the early stages of the Clone Wars, Thule was the site of a Separatist base. It was here that Count Dooku hoped to reconstruct the Dark Reaper and use it against the Old Republic. However, with the help of Ulic Qel-Droma's spirit, Anakin Skywalker was able to destroy the Dark Reaper and spare Thule from any damage. (GMR3, TCW)

Thule Moon
this airless asteroid was captured by the gravity of the planet Thule, becoming a captured moon.

She eventually found work as an assassin and hired gun, and was contracted by an Imperial officer to eliminate Deckland Carper. After killing Carper and returning his head as proof, Thune took possession of Carper's droid, U-THR. She thought of the droid as a "spoil of war," which made the droid resentful of its new master. Thune later took the assignment of tracking down Kaj Nedmak for Bwahl the Hutt. Thune managed to waylay the Tryan Kajme with her own ship, the Faceted, then captured Kaj on Ord Mantell. She later used her street skills to convince Celia Durasha that Kaj had actually been captured by Treytis Prash. Thune convinced Celia that Prash was a bounty hunter, when in fact, Thune knew that Prash as a gun-runner for the Alliance. Thune hoped to capture Prash as well as Nedmak, collecting both bounties and acquiring a huge sum of credits. However, Thune failed to take U-THR's identity seriously. When Celia and Prash escaped, shortly after Thune had stabbed Kaj in the chest, the droid found itself unable to remain in Thune's company any longer. It provided Kaj with a blaster, and he quickly stunned Thune. U-THR then piloted the Faceted and rescued Celia and Treytis.

this Caarite was the primary envoy sent by the Metatheran Cartel to the planet Cularin, some time before the Battle of Naboo. Thurm was known as a being who would beg, borrow, or steal whatever he needed in order to favor his own interests, and he was not above killing - or having someone else kill for him - in order to get what he wanted. He once claimed to be the only non-Jedi ever to be offered a seat on the Jedi Council, and later claimed to be the mastermind behind the creation of the clone troopers that formed the basis of the Grand Army of the Republic. In the wake Velin Wir's death, sometime after the Battle of Naboo, Loogg was instrumental in regaining the confidence of the Cularin government and re-establishing the Cartel's presence on Cularin. However, the citizens of Cularin regarded Loogg as nothing more than a bully and thug, and did not share their leaders' generous opinion of him. A strange message of the Cartel's benevolence was released by Loogg shortly after the discovery of the Thaereian Military build-up in the Cularin System, in which an unusually happy and jovial Loogg proclaimed that the Cartel was only trying to act in the bests interests of Cularin. Years later, a second message was broadcast by Loogg to every communications device in the system, demonstrating a supposed weakness in Cularin's own HoloNet system. In this new message, Loogg reassured the people of Cularin that the Cartel had only their best interests in mind, and warned them of the possibility of the Separatists arriving in the system. Loogg denounced the Separatists, their droid armies, and the Sith as being "bad", "evil", and "sneaky", and implored the Cularin people to support Chancellor Palpatine's efforts to end the Clone Wars. Many of Cularin's citizens simply turned off their viewscreens, which prompted Loogg and the Cartel into surreptitiously begin installing "upgrades" to Cularin's communications systems, allowing them to have virtually complete control of everything, including the ability to turn individual viewscreens on and off. Loogg claimed that this was just another sign of the Cartel's goodwill toward Cularin, but strongly warned people not to try and modify their "new" system. He went on to say that the Cartel loved Cularin, and only remained in the Cularin System in order to ensure the protection of each and every Cularin citizen. But, he said, since Cularin seemed to want to fight its own battles, the Cartel would not interfere with the very citizens it was "sworn" to protect. (LFC, LFCW)

However, the machinations of Navi and Alaric's own stubborn will prevented any reconciliation, and Thustra remained part of the Confederacyt of Independent Systems. Because Alaric had contacts in many surrounding systems, many of these systems also seceded to join the Separatists. (J5)

Thyferra
this planet, located in the Polith System, produced much of the galaxy's bacta. A temperate world with two moons, it is the homeworld of the Vratix race, which discovered how to create bacta from alazhi and kavam. The Vratix shared the secrets of bacta production with their human neighbors, and a healthy business was created as the galaxy realized the healing potential of bacta. The planet had two human factions engaged in bacta production, the Zaltin and Xucphra factions, in addition to the Vratix Ashern faction. The two human factions were chosen by Emperor Palpatine to supply the Empire's bacta, effectively eliminating all competition in the bacta market. The Vratix were relegated to the position of rebellious terrorists, until they petitioned the New Republic for admission as a member race. The Republic was unable to do so without the consent of the native human population, which was under the yoke of Ysanne Isard until she was killed in the Battle of Thyferra. Once free of Imperial domination, Thyferra applied for membership and was accepted. The Vratix then expelled the human leaders of the bacta cartels, and took control of its production for thenselves. Unfortunately, the Vratix were no match for the Yuuzhan Vong, who invaded the galaxy shortly afterward. The Yuuzhan Vong control of Thyferra casued serious problems to the New Republic, which had to rely on existing stockpiles of bacta to supply their military medical facilities. In a series of hit-and-run attacks, New Republic forces eventually defeated the alien invaders and recaptured the planet. The average day on Thyferra lasts just over 21 standard hours.

It was heavily modified, and had additional weapons emplacements and a hyperdrive. When the Battle of Thyferra went the way of Rogue Squadron, Isard tried to escape in it. However, the shuttle was shot down and destroyed by Tycho Celchu and Corran Horn. (BW)

Thykar
this species of majestic tree was native to the lush forests of the planet Carest 1. Average specimens of thykar grew well over 150 meters in height. Thykar trees were found mainly on the northern continents of the planet. (AE)

a planetary star system that is the source of the Sun Guards. (ISB)

Thyss
this landing platform, formed in the wroshyr trees of Rwookrrorro, was where Jowdrrl and Dryanta worked on the Millennium Falcon while Chewbacca helped Lumpawarump with his Test of Ascension. (TT)

Thyssel
this bark of this tree, which was native only to Haruun Kal, was considered an exotic spice. Because the thyssel tree grew only on Haruun Kal, it was quite expensive. The native Korunnai often chewed the bark of the thyssel raw, as a kind of stimulant. Those individuals who chewed thyssel bark were easily distinguished by the scarlet-red color of their teeth. When properly roasted and refined, the bark was ground into a spice which provided a sharp taste that gave the eater a slight sensation of euphoria. When not fully refined and dried, thyssel bark retained enough moisture to be chewed as a stimulating intoxicant, about as potent as sweet wine. In its raw form, however, thyssel bark could cause permanent brain damage. (SHPT)

Thyswar
this was a common name among the S'kytri people. (UANT)

Thyte, Darryn
a member of the FarStar's crew, Thyte was distinguished by his cybernetic arm. He was a former Alliance starfighter pilot who had lost the arm when his X-Wing was shot down over Vaenrood. The only available prosthetic was a clunky, unwieldy device with little dexterity, forcing Darryn to relinquish his position as a pilot and join the ranks of the operations crew. This left him with a bad attitude and sour disposition, which turned to anger when he first met Ranna Gorjaye. He resented the fact that she was still flying, and boasting about how much fun she was having. However, during his tenure aboard the FarStar, he began to soften up toward Ranna. (DARK, KO, KR)

Ti, Kirana
a Dathomir Witch, Kirana Ti was a member of the Singing Mountain clan. It was Kirana Ti who met Han Solo and Leia Organa when they were on the planet battling against Zsinj. Kirana decided to go to Yavin 4 and learn learn the ways of The Force under Luke Skywalker after Leia suggested her to Luke. She quickly grew into one the most experienced Jedi, and was part of the team dispatched to Corbos. There, with the help of Streen, Kyp Durron, and Dorsk 82, she defeated the Leviathan of Corbos. Kirana had a daughter about the same age as Jacen and Jaina Solo, who remained on Dathomir with rest of Kirana's family. During the height of the Yuuzhan Vong invasion of the galaxy, Kirana Ti returned to Dathomir to help protect her people from the alien invaders. Ultimately, Kirana one of the handful of Jedi Knights to survive the conflict with the Yuuzhan Vong. (DA, COTF, UF)

Tia
this given name was commonly given to female human children throughout the galaxy. (GCG)

Tia
this member of the Obroan Institute was the sensor expert on the Alpha Team sent to Maltha Obex, under the command of Bogo Tragett. (TT)

Tia
this young woman and her twin sister, Ghia, was eighteen when she found herself imprisoned by Jabba the Hutt on Tatooine. Tia and Ghia were natives of Bestine IV, and had joined the Alliance shortly after the Battle of Yavin, but only for the chance to meet Han Solo. After Solo was frozen in carbonite on Cloud City, the sisters defected from the Alliance and set out to rescue him from Jabba. Their military skills were lacking any form of organization, and the sisters were easily captured in Jabba's palace. As punishment, Jabba forced them to fight against other combatants in a series of demolition derby events, flying a modified T-47 airspeeder. (SWD)

Tiamat
this Alliance MC40a was active during the Galactic Civil War. (XVT)

Tiaran'grast Sling Course
this was the newest and most challenging sling racing course in the galaxy, established during the height of the New Order on the planet Bothawui. The site of the course was located forty kilometers south of Drev'starn, and the course itself was known as much for its raucous pre-race parties as it was the racing itself. (SPG)

Tiatha
this Jawa was legendary among his clan for his ability to salvage every usable piece of scrap from a wreck. Tiatha could also turn the husk of a starship into a veritable palace. (JKG)

Tiatkin
this was one of the many Twi'leki clans which were native to the planet Ryloth. In the Twi'leki language, the clan's name meant "creative". (GCG)

T'iaz
one of the Emperor Palpatine's Dark Side warriors, T'iaz was part of the group that accompanied the dying Emperor to Korriban, in search of a way to halt the decay of his last clone body. He was severely wounded by Rayf Ysanna on Onderon, when Palpatine tried to steal the body of Anakin Skywalker. (EE)

Tibanisphere
this was the term used to describe the layer of tibanna gas which existed on several gas giants throughout the galaxy. Because of its weight, the tibanna gas settled into an atmospheric layer whenever concentrations were great enough, creating the tibanisphere. (TAE)

Tibanna
this defense platform was positioned to defend Damorian Manufacturing's repair yards during the Galactic Civil War. (XWA)

Tibanna 300
this was one of the lesser-known podracing courses, active during the last decades of the Old Republic. Located on Tatooine, the Tibanna 300 was a circular course that traveled aroudn the rim of a long-dead volcano. (SOT)

Tibanna Club
this is one of Bespin's most popular clubs. (GG9)

Tibanna gas
a gas found in the atmosphere of many gas giants, it is useful because it can produce large amounts of energy when light passes through it. Thus, it can be used in large blasters to multiply the weapon's output. It also has certain anti-gravitional properties, and has exceptional properties as a hyperdrive coolant. The best tibanna gas is compressed and spin-sealed, since this kind of tibanna is four times as powerful as regular tibanna. Spin-sealing requires a great deal of energy to do artificially. Fortunately for many weapons manufacturers, the tibanna found in the atmosphere of Bespin is naturally spin-sealed. Much of Bespin's tibanna gas is produced as a waste product by the beldons that inhabit the gas giant's Life Zone. (ESB, AESB, GG2, ISU)

Tibannopolis
a floating city in close-orbit around Bespin, deserted after the Imperial occupation of Cloud City. It was one of the few mining colonies that was not shut down when it failed to turn a profit. It was left floating in the clouds, and the industrious people of other colonies picked it clean of usable materials. The remainder of the hulk now floats like a skeletal ghost town in the clouds. It was by Streen as a refuge while he was not prospecting Bespin's gases. (JS, ISU)

Tibekk, Raim
this man was a member of the Coruscant police force during the years leading up to the Battle of Naboo. A dedicated officer who worked a beat in Coruscant's financial district, Tibekk once arrested a key operative of a major Hutt kajidic. This prompted the Hutts to issue a bounty for Tibekk's capture. Jango Fett claimed the bounty sometime later, when he apprehended by Tibekk and his fellow officers. Fett had just killed the Twi'lek Senator Trell, and Tibekk's gunship was the first to arrive on the scene. Fett managed to disable the gunship and take control of the police officers who survived. (BH)

Tibor
a Barabel bounty hunter who used to haunt the Mos Eisley cantina until Zorba the Hutt returned to Tatooine. Then, Tibor became one of Zorba's hired hands. (ZHR)

Tibranese
this was the native language of the Ishi Tib race. The written form was made up of simple hieroglyphs, while the spoken form consisted of squeals, honks, and beak-clacks. (UANT)

Tibrin
the homeworld of the Ishi Tib race, Tibrin was an oceanic world orbiting the yellow star Cal. The entire planet was covered by a shallow ocean, and the planet had no seasonal changes because of its perpendicular axial tilt. The planet's ocean currents conducted warmth from the inner core to the surface, bringing heat to all parts of the planetary ocean. The only land masses were coral reefs and sand bars, and the Ishi Tib built their ecologically-friendly cities there. Tibrin was one of many worlds which were caught up in the fighting of the Clone Wars, although damage to the ecosystem proved to be minimal. (GG4, LEV)

Tibrin Exotic Armaments
this was the Basic name for Tibrin Kish'nol. (GFT)

Tibrin Kish'nol
this Ishi Tib corporation exported a variety of native technologies to the rest of the galaxy, during the height of the New Order. (GFT)

Tibro
a planet. (WBC)

Tice, Haelon
there is virtually no information on this man's history, a fact many attribute to the computer manipulation of his employer, Yin Vocta. Tice himself was employed by Vocta as a bodyguard and assassin, and was known to the criminal underworld as a ruthless and brutal killer. His muscular body was a combination of flesh and machine, having augmented his natural abilities with a number of cybernetic replacements. His left eye was synthetic, and glowed a bright violet at all times. Tice's manner was best described as loud and obnoxious, in stark contrast to that of his partner, R'Kayza. (WSV)

Tic'Karcta, Phean
a native of Arkonne III, Tic'Karcta sabotaged the official vehicle which was carrying her rival in business, Divina Quri Adner. Adner was killed in the attack, and Tic'Karcta found herself the subject of an official Imperial bounty. Wilek Nereus, Adner's fiance', eventually hunted down and killed Tic'Karcta to exact a measure of revenge. (TBSB)

Ticket-chip
this coin-sized plastic data chip was used to hold information on a traveller and their scheduled trip. They are read by special scanners, which verify that the chip is valid for the flight being approached. (RM)

Ticktil
this word was used in the Elrood Sector to describe any alien species, such as the Bilars, which were deemed "too cute to live." (PG3)

Ti-Dal
this Cerean was well-respected on his homeworld of Cerea. (SWRPG)

Tidal Breathing
this was one of the many relaxation techniques developed by the Jedi Knights of the Old Republic. By concentrating on exhaling deeply, relaxing and drawing a deep breath, then repeating the actions, a Jedi could shed mental burdens and reach a deeper, more receptive state of mind. This allowed them to make an intense connection to the Force, becoming a conduit for its power. (MBS)

Tide of Progress XII
this Munificent-class star frigate was constructed for the Confederacy of Independent Systems at a space station located half-way between the edge of the galaxy and its nearest dwarf satellite galaxy, during the height of the Clone Wars. The Tide of Progress XII was one of the many Separatist warships deployed to support General Grievous' forces during the First Battle of Coruscant. (X3)

TIE Advanced
single-hulled attack ship with bent wings, it was built from a design developed by Darth Vader just prior the Battle of Yavin. Vader flew a prototype TIE/Ad in the battle, and following the loss of the Death Star, he worked with Seinar Fleet Systems to refine it. The 10-meter craft is quick and agile, rated at a top speed of 145 MGLT. The TIE Advanced was equipped with the following shipboard components: Seinar Fleet Systems I-s3a Solar Ionization Reactor, Seinar Fleet Systems P-sx7.4 Twin Ion Engines, Seinar Fleet Systems F-s5x Flight Avionics Control, Seinar Fleet Systems N-s6 NavCom Unit, Seinar Fleet Systems ND9 Hyperdrive Activator Unit, 4 Seinar Fleet Systems L-s9.3 Laser Cannons, 2 Seinar Fleet Systems M-g-2 General Purpose Warhead Launchers, Front/Rear Projecting Novaldex Shields (rated at 100 SBD), Titanium Alloy Hull (rated at 20 RU), Quadanium Steel Armored Solar Panels (SW, XW, TIE)

TIE Advanced x1
the original series of prototypes for the TIE Advanced, the x1 was the most successful of the TIE prototypes built by Sienar Fleet Systems, and although it did not make it to production, many of its advancements did. The x1 had a custom-built fuselage which features enhanced armor plating, and expanded rear deck, and matching bent wings. It wasn't as maneuverable as the other TIE Fighter designs, but speed was slightly faster. Like most TIE ships, the x1 lacked a life-support system, but it did have modest shield generators and a hyperdrive. The x1 saw limited production. Darth Vader received one of the first x1 ships, while others went to elite squadrons for testing. SFS could not bring the fighter's cost down, so the Empire opted not to purchase the x1 in quantity. Instead, the Empire chose the TIE Interceptor, which incorporated many of the x1's advances but on the basis TIE Fighter frame and at a much cheaper cost. In the decades after the fall of the Empire at Endor and the negotiation of peace between the New Republic and the Imperial remnants, these ships were decommissioned. Lando Calrissian picked up a number of them for use in the Lando's Folly asteroid field. (CCG, VP)

TIE Advanced x7
this prototype TIE Fighter was one of the last designs produced by Sienar Fleet Systems before the Battle of Endor. Originally developed on Corulag, the x7 measured 9.2 meters in length, and was equipped with a hyperdrive. It was also armed with four laser cannons. The x7 eventually served as the design basis for the TIE Defender. (CCW)

TIE Aggressor
this experimental variant of the Imperial TIE Fighter was derived from the TIE Advanced x1. The wings of the TIE Aggressor were bent at the front, but tapered down to a single panel at the rear. The rear deck of the TIE Advanced was reduced in width to save weight, but provided the ship with enhanced maneuverability. A pair of chin-mounted laser cannons complimented two missile launchers, and a gun turret was mounted at the rear, giving the TIE Aggressor more firepower than its predecessor. Military experts categorized the TIE Aggressor as neither a fighter nor a bomber, but rather something in between that could accomplish the mission profiles of either type of vessel. (LAWS, SWGAL)

TIE Avenger
this version of the TIE Fighter was based on the TIE Advanced x1 prototype, and was the precursor to the TIE Interceptor. The Avenger's wings were bent inward at the top and bottom, and the wing supports were strengthened with fins attached to the hull. The armament and shielding was virtually the same as the TIE Advanced x1, with pair of L-s9.3 laser cannons or a pair of warhead launchers giving the fighter its punch. The TIE Avenger also reused the I-s3a ionization reactor and two P-sx7.4 ion engines for propulsion. It also had deflector shields and a hyperdrive, which significantly added to its cost. Because of this, it was quickly phased out of production and replaced with the TIE Interceptor. (CCG4, SWDB)

TIE Bomber
built by Seinar Fleet Systems, this version of the TIE fighter is a double-hulled bomber ship with bent wings for increased stability. It is 7.8 meters in large, is a single-pilot craft, and can make 80 MGLT at sublight speeds. It was designed for surgical strikes against ground and deep-space targets. It suffers in maneuverability due to its double-hulled configuration, but when complemented by TIE Fighters or TIE Interceptors, it makes a lethal combination. They have enhanced targetting capability, making them much more accurate than many capital ships. These ships eventually evolved into the Scimitar assault bomber. It boasts the following shipboard systems: Seinar Fleet Systems P-s4 Twin Ion Engines, Seinar Fleet Systems N-s4 NavCom Unit, 2 Seinar Fleet Systems L-s1 Laser Cannons, Seinar Fleet Systems M-s3 Concussion Missile Launchers (2 racks of 4), Seinar Fleet Systems I-a2b Solar Ionization Reactor, Seinar Fleet Systems F-s3.2 Avionics Control, Seinar Fleet Systems T-s7b Targeting Computer, Seinar Fleet Systems T-s5 Proton Torpedo Launchers (2 racks of 2), Titanium Alloy Hull (rated at 50 RU), Quadanium Steel Armored Solar Panels. (ESB, SCRE, EGV)

TIE Bomber Mark 2
this proposed update to the Imperial TIE Bomber was developed by Captain Tomax Bren, and included the addition of shielding and armor plating. (SWJ15)

TIE Crawler
another name for the TIE Tank. (DE1)

TIE Defender
an advanced form of TIE Fighter developed in secrecy by the Imperial Navy, the TIE Defender was produced as a response to the success of the Alliance's starfighter pilots. This 10-meter starfighter, known as the TIE/D, took the stability and agility of the TIE Interceptor's bent-wing design and added a third bent-wing to it. Note that The New Essential Guide to Vehicles and Vessels indicates that the TIE Defender measured just 6.6 meters in length. Not much was known about the TIE/D, as it was never fully accepted in battle and never mass-produced. It was thought to have had a maximum speed of 155 MGLT, with 4 L-s9.3 laser cannons, 2 NK-3 ion cannons, 2 M-g-2 warhead launchers, 200 SBD shields, and a 20 RU hull. The fighter was propelled by the newer P-sz9.7 twin ion engines from Sienar Fleet Systems, which gave the ship atmospheric speeds of 1,680 kilometers per hour, and was equipped with Novaldex shield generators. The TIE Defender was used to defeat Admiral Zaarin, although the missions were so secret that very few Imperial officials were unaware of its role. The TIE Defender was produced at a cost of over 300,000 credits per fighter, about five times the cost of a TIE/ln. This, plus the political upheaval created by the Battle of Endor and the fact that it had an aft blindspot created by the wing placement, led to the demise of the TIE Defender as a widely-accepted starfighter. Its only known deployment during the Galactic Civil War was as part of Onyx Squadron during the Battle of Endor, but the TIE Defender design was later adopted by the Imperial Remnant as one of its primary starfighters. (TIE, EGV, CCG9, SWDB, NEGV, FH1)

TIE Deluxe
an advanced form of TIE Fighters which was developed, but never deployed into combat. (TIE)

TIE Fighter
sometimes called the TIE/ln starfighter, this was the first flat-winged, single-pilot TIE ship developed by Seinar Fleet Systems, and the basis for all other TIE ships. It is 6.3 meters in length, and can make 100 MGLT at sublight speeds. It has also been clocked at 1,200 kilometers per hour in an atmosphere. Like all TIE ships, it has a titanium alloy hull and quadanium steel armored solar panels. All visual information on TIE Fighters shows that they have six-sided solar panels, although X-Wing: The Bacta War indicates that they are octagonal. Also, like other TIE ships, it is built exclusively from Seinar Fleet Systems components, and lacks primary life support systems. It is a short-range starfighter, requiring a nearby base of operations from which to obtain fuel and guidance. It also boasts the following shipboard systems: Seinar Fleet Systems T-s8 Targeting Computer, Seinar Fleet Systems I-a2b Solar Ionization Reactor, Seinar Fleet Systems N-s6 NavCom Unit, Seinar Fleet Systems P-s4 Twin Ion Engines, Seinar Fleet Systems F-s3.2 Avionics Control, 2 Seinar Fleet Systems P-w401 Ion Maneuvering Jets, 2 Seinar Fleet Systems L-s1 Laser Cannons, Titanium Alloy Hull (rated at 15 RU) ,Quadanium Steel Armored Solar Panels. (SW, SCRE, SWSB, EGV)

TIE Fighter
a game found in the databanks of the computer program called Systems Integration Manager aboard the Star of Empire. The player took the persona of a downed TIE Fighter pilot who had to escape from Alliance forces before being captured. In order to escape, the pilot had to enter the correct access code to repair his ship. (GOF10)

TIE Fighter Boat
this was a form of aquatic military vessel developed by the Empire, based on the standard TIE/ln starfighter. (BGS)

TIE Hunter
this variant on the Imperial TIE Fighter was created at a hidden base near Destrillion, during the height of the Galactic Civil War. Its unusual design incorporated S-foils, similar to those used on the Incom T-65 X-Wing, to position the trademark solar panels. In addition to the standard laser cannons, the TIE Hunter also was armed with ion cannons, and could be upgraded to use concussion missile launchers. Like most TIE designs, the TIE Hunter lacked shields, but could be upgraded to support them. Before the TIE Hunter could be put into production, three prototypes were stolen by Wedge Antilles. These were used in a raid on the Imperial shipyards at Fondor, where the TIE Hunter proved it could be a formidable craft after Antilles and Rogue Squadron were able to destroy a Star Destroyer that was under construction. Because of the events surrounding the Battle of Endor, however, the TIE Hunter never went into full production. (RSG3)

TIE Interceptor
built by Seinar Fleet Systems, these single-pilot bent-winged attack craft were designed so that the wings are longer in front than behind, and have been cut out at the front for better visibility. They are 9.6 meters in length, and can run at 110 MGLT at sublight speeds. They have been timed at 1,250 kilometers per hour in atmospheric conditions. It boasts the following shipboard systems: Titanium Alloy Hull (rated at 20 RU), Quadanium Steel Armored Solar Panels, Seinar Fleet Systems I-a3b Solar Ionization Reactor, Seinar Fleet Systems S-c4.1 Multi-range Tracking Array Grid, Seinar Fleet Systems F-s4 Avionics Control, Seinar Fleet Systems T-s9a Targeting Computer, Seinar Fleet Systems P-s5.6 Twin Ion Engines, Seinar Fleet Systems N-s6 NavCom Unit, 4 Seinar Fleet Systems L-s9.3 Laser Cannons. (ROTJ, SCRE, SWSB, XW)

TIE Lander
this troop transport vessel was built by Sienar Fleet Systems, and was based on the design of the TIE Fighter. It had a triple hull, which gave it the ability to deploy a stormtrooper company into virtually any environment. (IWST)

TIE Oppressor
this unusual variant of the Imperial TIE Fighter was designed to bridge the gap between the TIE Bomber and the TIE Interceptor. The elongated, bent wings of the TIE Advanced were reused on the TIE Oppressor to provide stability, while a third wing was mounted horizontally at the rear. (LAWS)

TIE Raptor
this was the name of a droid-operated TIE Interceptor developed by Warlord Zsinj, during his battle against the New Republic. They first saw duty with the false 181st Fighter Group Zsinj assembled, in hopes ot drawing out Rogue Squadron. The droid fighters were paired with human-piloted Interceptors, a combination which allowed the humans to lead and the droids to follow in their wake, making up for any piloting mistakes the humans made. They would have found more widespread usage if they weren't soundly defeated in dogfights during the Battle of Selaggis. Resembling the normal TIE Fighter cockpit, but with four wings mounted directly to the cockpit, the TIE/rpt was eventually modified for flight by a living pilot, shortly before Zsinj's destruction at Dathomir. The TIE/rpt lacked shields, although this deficiency was being addressed at the time of Zsinj's demise. Each TIE Raptor was armed with four laser cannons, mounted on the wings, and a pair of concussion missile tubes mounted just below the cockpit. Despite the striking similarity between the TIE Raptor and the basic TIE Fighter, Seinar Fleet Systems was not responsible for its design or manufacture. (SOC, CTD)

TIE Scout
this limited-production model of the standard TIE Fighter had severely-canted wings. Unlike the Interceptor, the wings had two planes instead of three, with the upper section bent inward more than the lower section. These ships, designed to scout for pirate and rebel activity, were packed with long-range sensors and communications arrays. They were lightly armored and armed, to allow for the additional equipment. (CCG)

TIE Ships
Twin Ion-Engined small attack ships used as defensive guard ships around larger cruisers (such as Star Destroyers). Each is a single-pilot ship which lacks a hyperdrive and life support system due to their small size and expendability. The wings are covered with solar panels for collecting energy that can be transferred to the engines. Originally designed by Republic Seinar Systems, they were not built until the Empire assumed control, and RSS became Seinar Fleet Systems. There are many different variations of the basic TIE design, each built for unique purposes. (SW, ESB, SCRE)

TIE Subfighter
this form of TIE Fighter is a smaller version of the original, and is armed with a concussion missile launcher and a single blaster cannon. (SWJ9)

TIE Tank
a ground assault vehicle modeled after the TIE starfighter, this vehicle was properly called the Century Tank, although its resemblance to the TIE Fighter earned it its other names of TIE Tank and TIE Crawler. This ground vehicle was the first craft designed and built by the Seinar Army Systems division of the Santhe/Seinar Technologies group, during the period following the Battle of Endor. The 6.7-meter craft was essentially the cockpit of a TIE Fighter linked to a pair of outboard treads, armed with a light turbolaser and two medium blaster cannons. It was designed to be a cheap, mass-produced ground combat vehicle. Twin Santhe SSct power generators supplied energy to the treads, but were only strong enough to move the tank at 90 kilometers an hour. They were easily repaired because most of their systems were basic in design to cut down on production costs. Disabled or damaged TIE Tanks could be quickly repaired in most situations, and abandoned Tanks were often scavenged for parts. (DE1, DESB, EGV, SWDB)

TIE Vanguard
this reconnaissance fighter was deployed to gather information of enemy starship movements before engaging the fleet in battle. Built from the basic TIE/rc design, the Vanguard's solar collectors were smaller on the top half than on the bottom. The top part was also bent slightly outward. The central ball of the strafighter was equipped with enhanced communications equipment. (CCG2, SWDB)

TIE/D
pilotless TIE/droid unit fighters run by onboard droids, designed by Arndall Lott following the Battle of Endor. Lott used the Katana fleet as an inspiration, seeing that the automated systems could work if implemented correctly. Lott originally automated the AT-AT, but his early work suffered from lack of computer power. The TIE/D has received the best automation the Empire could afford, and could be used as independent fighters or computer-slaved squadrons. However, the initial TIE/Ds were not very powerful, and were only effective in large numbers. The TIE/D measured 6.1 meters, and resemble the center section of a TIE Fighter with squared-off TIE Interceptor-like wings which were flat and tilted. The TIE/D was armed with a pair of laser cannons, and lacked a hyperdrive. A Cybot Galactica Ace-6 combat droid brain served as the heart of the ship, but was shown to be greatly inferior to human pilots. The TIE/D, although produced in large volumes in an attempt to overwhelm New Republic starfighters, was primarily produced by the nuclear furnaces and factories of World Devastators. When these were destroyed over Calamari, the primary sources of the TIE/Ds were eliminated. (DE1, DESB, EGV, SWDB)

TIE/fc
a specially-equipped TIE fighter used for relaying targeting and fire control information back to the capital ships of a main fleet, the TIE/fc measured 6.3 meters in length and was armed with a single laser cannon. In addition to augmenting the targeting abilities of capital ships, the TIE/fc proved valuable in assisting the targeting of TIE Fighters. (SWSB, SWJ10, SWDB)

TIE/gt
a specially-equipped TIE fighter used for carrying bombs and torpedoes to support ground troops. It was the predecessor to the TIE Bomber, but was a bit more maneuverable. Based on the standard TIE/ln, it measured 6.3 meters in length and was armed with a single laser cannon and a concussion missile launcher. Although large targets were easily locked by the TIE/gt's computers, it more often worked in concert with a TIE/fc to ensure pinpoint accuracy. The cockpit of the TIE/gt was reinforced and elongated to allow for its payloads, which could include twelve concussion missiles, six proton torpedoes, two cluster bombs, or eighteen mines. Among the more unusual missions of the TIE/gt was the deployment of propaganda leaflets. The name referred to its ground targetting ability. (SWSB, SWJ10, SWJ15, SWDB)

TIE/ln
the basic TIE fighter design. See TIE Fighter. (SWSB)

TIE/rc
a specially-equipped TIE fighter which employs sophisticated sensors and long-range communications equipment for reconnaissance. Because of the additional power and space requirements of this equipment, the TIE/rc was armed with a single laser cannon. A specialized variant of this craft was known as the TIE Vanguard. (SWSB, SWJ10, SWDB)

TIE/rc Vanguard
see TIE Vanguard (SWDB)

TIE/rpt
this was the designation of the TIE Raptor starfighter developed by Warlord Zsinj. (CTD)

TIE/sh
this was the designation of a version of the standard Imperial TIE Fighter which was equipped to shuttle small numbers of personnel between ground-based operations to orbital craft. It was an alternative to the expensive Lambda-class shuttles, which were generally reserved for high-ranking officials. The TIE/sh could be built for less, and could be deployed to line officers who were at or near battlelines. At 7.8 meters in length, and equipped with a double hull to accommodate its passegers, the TIE/sh was the design basis for the TIE Bomber. Although not meant for combat, the TIE/sh was armed with a single laser cannon. The ship could also be used to transport up to a metric ton of cargo. (SWJ10, SWDB)

TIE/SR
Seinar's designation of the TIE Scout. (CCG)

TIE/x1
this was the model designation of the TIE Advanced x1 starfighter. (SWJ5)

TIE/x2
this was the follow-on version of the TIE Advanced x1 starfighter. Like its predecessor, the TIE/x2 was equipped with a hyperdrive. Also like the x2, the x2 was a prorotype design which was never destined for mass production. It was believed that the TIE/x3 would be the production model in this series. (SWJ5)

TIE/x3
this was the model number of Sienar Fleet Systems' production-ready version of the original TIE Advanced x1 starfighter. It was given faster sublight engines, larger solar panels, and enhanced combat systems. However, unlike both the x1 and x2 versions, the TIE/x3 lacked a hyperdrive. (SWJ5)

Tiebo
this valet, who worked for the famous actress Jona Reeten, became her business partner when Reeten was blacklisted by Babel Torsh. (GG6)

Tiehn Slug
this small creature was considered a delicacy by the Hutts. (COG)

Tieko
this was a common name among the Kushiban race. (UANT)

Tiem Rutnar
this being was a noted expediter, working during the height of the New Order to match dangerous missions and quests to bands of independent agents and mercenaries. (GQRG)

Tiems
this city, bordered by the Blue River and the Gopps Forest, was the site of an Imperial outpost that was attacked by Carlist Rieekan and the Alliance. The ground assault maneuvers were later used as examples by General Madine. (RASB)

Tieos
planet which was home to an Imperial naval base. (SWSB)

Tier
this Imperial officer accompanied Thrawn to S'krrr, shortly after the Battle of Yavin. Tier and his peer officer, Wolver, were killed in attacks from drog beetles. (GOF8)

Tiercan Dam
this immense, durasteel dam was erected on the planet Duro several centuries before the surface of the planet was scoured by toxic wastes. Measuring 780 meters in height and spanning two full kilometers, Tiercan Dam was visible for miles around. In the wake of the ecological disaster that destroyed Duro's ecosystem, the Empire stripped Tiercan Dam for its durasteel, leaving only the main exostructure. (GMR2)

Tierce, Grodin
this former Imperial stromtrooper and Royal Guard served under Moff Disra. Tierce managed to survive the destruction of the second Death Star by the simple fact that he was not there, having been rotated out of active duty as Guardsman at the time. He later served as one of Grand Admiral Thrawn's stromtroopers aboard the Chimaera, but didn't count on Rukh actually killing Thrawn. Tierce's unit, upon hearing of Thrawn's death, intercepted and executed Rukh. A cold, calculating man, Tierce was drawn into Disra own plans for the remnants of the Empire as he was furthering his own schemes. Serving as a Naval Major, Tierce tried to remain a minor aide to Disra, but felt that the old man was getting in his way. He took control of the military aspects of their plans after Disra introduced Flim as a reborn Thrawn. Tierce recognized the short-comings of Flim's performance, and had Thrawn's genetic records altered to match Flim's. He then cut off Disra's supply of clones to Zothip and the Cavrilhu Pirates, making it clear to Disra that the Empire would need them more than the pirates. He claimed that he was only trying to avenge the death of Palpatine. He also learned that Thrawn had set up a number of sleeper cells on Republic worlds, and worked to activate them in an effort to garner more troops. Tierce also hired the Vengeance group to begin a series of ritos which, on the surface, were the result of the Caamas Incident. His work with Disra dn Flim was cut short when Admiral Pellaeon discovered that Tierce was, in fact, a clone of the original Grodin Tierce. The history files in the Imperial Records Library noted that Tierce died in the assault on Generis while serving under the original Thrawn, ten years before the Caamas Incident. Thrawn created the clone himself, using Tierce's fierce loyalty and soldier acumen and merging it with much of Thrawn's own intellect and cunning. The hope was that this new regime of clones would supplant the Imperial warlords and take control of the Empire. Pellaeon discovered that Tierce was created just two months prior to Thrawn's death, but the experiement was cut short when Thrawn realized that he had not created a leader, just a tactically brilliant stormtrooper. Tierce was the first - and last - of his line. Upon hearing of this, Shada D'ukal - who had accompanied Pellaeon - killed Tierce with one of her zenji needles. (SOP, VOF)

Tierell
the people of this planet were struggling with a repressive government when a coup occurred some five years after the Battle of Naboo. A small group of mercenaries was called in to force the leader of the government to step down, and he was eventually assassinated. Anakin Skywalker later learned that the mercenary group had been led by Gillam Tarturi, and was made up of students from the Leadership School on Andara. Marit Dice was actually the individual who shot the leader, although she claimed that he shot was in self-defense, fired during a blaster fight with security forces. Gillam claimed that the outcome was even better than forcing the leader out of power, and commended Marit for her actions. Marit, however, refused to pick up a firearm afterward, making her presence on the mercenary team expendible. (JQ5)

Tieren Nie-Tan
this horse-faced Jedi Knight was a contemporary of Jude Rozess and Theen Fida. He was on guard when the Yinchorri invaded the Jedi Temple on Coruscant. He and Rozess were the primary guards on duty at the time, and were caught by the sheer numbers of Yinchorri warriors. (AOW)

Tieress
this was the title used by the consort of the Satab of the planet Ventooine. (LTA5, MCA2)

Tierfon
planet in the Sumitra Sector that housed a secret Alliance fighter base during the Galactic Civil War. The Alliance used this base to patrol the Sumitra Sector and to provide escorts for secret convoys. Located on a steep cliff face overlooking a deep valley, the Alliance had perfect views for miles around. They dug deep into the rock, and built maintenance and refueling sites for convoy ships. The base was guarded by defensive lasers and the X-Wings based there, but had little other defenses. The base was run by 12 command personnel, and maintained 18 pilots and 54 ground troops. 74 support and technical staff were also stationed there. The base supported 5 airspeeders, 2 landspeeders, 4 speeder bikes, and 8 X-Wing starfighters. An MD-1 and an MD-2 droid provided medical support. Tierfon base was the base for the famous Yellow Aces Squadron. (SWSB, MTS)

Tig Fromm
Sise Fromm's son, this Annoo-dat went by the names of Baby-face Fromm and Junior Fromm. He liked to meddle with modern technology, and he built the weapons satellite Trigon One to help keep the inhabitants of Annoo in line. His dreams of supremacy were shattered when Demma Moll and her freedom fighters, assisted by R2-D2 and C-3PO, destroyed the satellite. Tig Vlix then spent many months trying to regain favor with Sise Fromm, trying to capture the rebels who destroyed the satellite. Unfortunately, Tig and Vlix were captured by Boba Fett on Boonta, and the pair were turned over to Jabba the Hutt. (DCAR)

Tiga Loreng
this bird, native to the planet Bimmisaari, was known for its beautiful plumage. (EGP)

Tigbwi
this was a common name among the Toydarian race. (WOTC, UANT)

Tigellinus, Rufaan
this Imperial Grand Admiral was inducted into Coruscant's Order of the Canted Circle during the height of the New Order. Tigellinus' admission into the exclusive order was somewhat unusual, because his involvement with the Order was minimal when compared to other important dignitaries. His rapid admission was attributed to his politcal savvy and connections to Emperor Palpatine, most notably his relationship with Alec Pradeux. His admission was also unusual in that it came during a period of rapid growth for the Order: Tigellinus was the thirteenth new member in seven years. Emperor Palpatine himself assigned Tigellinus to investigate the incredible growth of Moff Jerrod Maclain's personal wealth, shortly before the Battle of Hoth. It was rumored that Maclain was obtaining insider trading information from the Dajaal family, in return for political favors and tax breaks. Tigellinus was a strong supporter of Moff Disra, even when the Moff was out of favor with the Emperor. Later, when Emperor Palpatine made Thrawn the newest Grand Admiral, Tigellinus - a known human elitist - befriended Thrawn with every intention of betraying him later. Once Thrawn was discredited and dispatched to the Unknown Regions, Tigellinus began to assert his own powerful influence. He was soon named a Grand Moff, but only his old friend Disra supported his actions. Tigellinus disliked the fact that a non-human, Hissa, had also been named Moff, but was unable to sway the other to see his point of view. When Hissa was named the leader of the Central Committee of Grand Moffs, in the wake of the Battle of Endor, he took the opportunity to discredit Tigellinus and eliminate his dissenting voice. Hissa offered Tigellinus a subordinate role, which Tigellinus refused on the advice of Disra. For his insubordination, Tigellinus was executed on the spot, and Disra gladly agreed to take his place. (SWJ8, SWJ9, SWJ14, SWI66)

this was one of the multitude of Imperial-class Star Destroyers which made up the Imperial Navy fleet, during the height of the Galactic Civil War. (XW)

Tiger
an Imperial assault transport operative during the Galactic Civil War. It was assigned to the Pakuuni System. (TIE)

Tight Wing
this was a military tactic, used to enhance the abilities of a group of starfighters by condensing their formation into a tight grouping. While this eliminated maneuverability, it increased the amount of firepower from a single unit. The ability to maintain a tight wing often lasted just a few moments, during the opening engagement of a battle, when pilots of lesser skill dropped behind the main wing because they couldn't match the speed or direction of their wingmates. (SOG)

Tigona Minamore
this was the name of a distingished member of the Toong society. (UANT)

Tigress
this Alliance agent was hidden as a librarian within the Imperial archives. She befriended the Lady Amber Comark, despite her father's position as an Imperial Moff. When Tigress was discovered, she was quickly removed from her position and tortured. Amber felt nearly powerless as the Empire's interrogation eventually killed Tigress, until she resolved to pick up where Tigress left off. The lapse in contact between the two "Tigress" agents caused some concern within Alliance Intelligence, although Amber's help in exposing the Death-Hunter project was invaluable. (SWJ9)

Tigris
a Firrerreo youth, son of Hethrir and Rillao. It was hoped that Tigris would have a great deal of Force sensitivity, given that his parents were both Jedi. Their master, Darth Vader, hoped that their son would grow to become a great Sith warrior. However, Tigris was born without any Force sensitivity whatsoever, and was all but forgotten by his father. Rillao placed him on one of the Firrerreo colony ships, but Hethrir discovered him there and woke him up. Tigris was then relegated to slave status, doing whatever menial tasks Hethrir appointed. When Hethrir's treachery was revealed to Tigris at Crseih Station, he was through into a mass of emotional confusion. His mother took him back, to begin drawing him out of the shell Hethrir had built. (CS)

Tih Qiqah
this elderly Yuuzhan Vong Shaper was in charge of maintaining the Baanu Miir, during the invasion of the New Republic's galaxy. Tih Qiqah died about a year before the Battle of Duro, and had been unable to stop the aging of the worldship using the standard protocols of the Shapers.

Tik
this starfighter pilot served the New Republic as a member of Rogue Squadron during the second decade of the Republic's tenure. Tik was beleived to have been killed during the Republic's investigation of the attack on the Free Lance by a Yuuzhan Vong warship. The Yuuzhan Vong were still in the area, and destroyed several starfighters before being driven off.

Tikiarri
a fierce, primitive race native to the jungles of the planet Joralla, the Tikiarri descended from predatory avians and remained fearsome predators throughout their history. Their average lifespan is about 30 Jorallan years, but only because so many males die in combat before they are twenty. They were made even more dangerous when a foolish trader introduced the Tikiarri to blaster technology, which gave the Tikiarri a distincyt advantage. Over the years, many of their hunts involved killing offworlders in order to obtain their blaster weapons. (PG1)

Tikkes
this Quarren businessbeing was elected as a Senator by the Quarren on Calamari during the last decades of the Old Republic. Over time, Tikkes amased a huge fortune through the corruption and graft which sprung up shortly before Chancellor Valorum was voted out of power. During the year leading up to the Battle of Naboo, Senator Tikkes began to side with Orn Free Taa and the Senators who opposed Chancellor Finis Valorum's command of the Old Republic. As the years wore on and planets began to secede from the stagnating Republic, Senator Tikkes was one of the many voices in the Senate who called for the direct formation of the Army of the Republic, rather than voting on it and having the Amry's formation delayed by the constant bickering of the Senate. However, any political sway Senator Tikkes might have had was eliminated when he was implicated as part of a Thalassian slavery ring. Tikkes was taken to prison on Calamari and was replaced by Tundra Dowmeia, but later jumped bail and fled the planet. It was believed that Tikkes joined the Confederacy of Independent Systems shortly afterward. (IG1, COD, HNN4, HNN5, SWDB)

Til
this Kubaz spy, known as Crunch in the criminal underground of Duro, was a creche-mate of Garindan. His expertise was in the area of computer hacking and information gathering, and he preferred to eat while he worked.

T'ill
a fragrant, flowering plant native to Alderaan, the t'ill was also quite attractive to look at. Extracts created from the t'iil were used to soothe the pain of a sore throat, and the leaves of the plant were used to create a soothing tea. Within the golden, trumpet-shaped blossom of the t'iil was a single drop of nectar, which was harvested and used to distill l'lahsh. It took more than a thousand hand-picked blossoms to produce a single bottle of l'lahsh. (SWR, JPL, GF, SWJ11, SWEPH)

Till Chorios
a planet. (HNN5)

Till, Essara
this woman served the Naboo Security Force as the flight instructor for Bravo Squadron, serving under Ric Olie'. As a youth, Essara grew bored with her education in the arts and philosophy. She left Naboo when she turned nineteen, and for thirteen years worked as a pilot outside the Naboo System, gathering experience before returning to serve in her homeworld's military. She returned because hated the greed which was taking over the galaxy, and wanted to make sure that her homeworld was made aware of the growing discontent in the galaxy. It was rumored that Essara had become bored with starfighting. After her return to Naboo and her appointment to Bravo Squadron, she developed a personal relationship with her wingmate, Dren Melne. She took the role of training Echo Flight, shortly before the Battle of Naboo, despite the fact that Dren wanted her to leave Naboo with him to work for the government of Agamar. During the defense of station TFP-9, it was revealed that Dren had actually made up his mind to leave the Naboo. Essara was unprepared for the treacherous way Dren decided to leave, and was forced to shoot him down when he began attacking Echo Flight pilots. She nearly killed him, but the droid starfighters in the hold of the Velumina overwhelmed her small force. Essara was forced to surrender to Sorran's pirates. (SFT)

Tilnes
this was the outer moon of the planet Cularin. A lifeless world, Tilnes' orbit took it in between Cularin and Morasil at such a rate that the surface of Tilnes grew quite hot. Despite this, a form of scrub grass did grow on the surface, and yri worms inhabited the crust. During the Old Republic, a number of mining corporations took up residence on Tilnes, hoping to make their fortunes harvesting crystals. These crystals were discovered to be applicable in the creation of lightsabers, and even the flawed crystals could be used in blasters such as the T-32S. Because of the moon's orbit, these mining operations were forced to build their bases underground, and Tilnes was soon riddled by a network of tunnels. The construction and maintenance of these tunnels led to the startling discoveries of two hidden bases - one owned by the Caarites, and the other owned by the Thaereian Military - shortly after the onset of the Clone Wars. The discoveries, coupled with the hard times incurred by the Clone Wars, meant that the Tilnes mines were no longer as profitable as they had once been. (LFC, WOTC)

Tilossa
this middle-aged Gotal was a minor crimelord who owned and operated The Puddle during the height of the Galactic Civil War. He made a living selling water and renting property, and funneled the profits into protecting the area from assault.

Timbra Ott
this planet, located in the Kathol Outback, stands at the far end of the Galtea Run. Originally settled as a sister colony to Gandle Ott in order to accommodate those settlers who were looking for more isolation than usual, Timbra Ott became a penal colony maintained by the government of Kal'Shebbol after a series of earthquakes and tidal waves destroyed much of the settlement there. The planet's natural beauty recovered in time, and the convicts who were exiled there worked hard to make the planet liveable. When the Empire decided to strand the colonists on Timbra, rather than maintaining the facility, a series of riots broke out before a group of individuals took control of the planet and formed their own government. Since that time, the planet has re-asserted itself as a simple colony world, although most other residents of the Kathol Outback still consider the people of Timbra Ott to be convicts and criminals. (KO)

a native of the planet Coruscant, this man was a Jedi Knights serving the Old Republic some 600 years before the Battle of Yavin. While on Coruscant, Timpel worked with the Jedi Council to screen potential candidates for training. One of these candidates was a young Gotal who was too old and lacked a deep connection to the Force. Life continued for Timpel, but he often found himself unable to adequately complete his missions due to the limitations and restrictions imposed by the Jedi Council. Years later, on a mission to Antar 4, Timpel once again encountered the Force-sensitive Gotal he had dismissed years ago. The Gotal, known as Kaskutal, still harbored resentment toward the Jedi Order, but it was overshadowed by his admiration for the work of the Jedi Knights. Putting aside their differences, Timpel and Kaskutal began discussing the need for more action by the Jedi Order. Timpel decided that it was time to form an organization which was separate from the Jedi Order yet allied with their ideals and goals. Along with funding from Kaskutal, Timpel formed the Antarian Rangers. Unfortunately, Timpel died shortly afterward, leaving the administration of the Rangers to Kaskutal. (WOTC)

Tingel Arm
this area of the Corporate Sector was where most of the fighting between the Authority and the Trianii took place. In the realignment which occurred after the Battle of Endor and the eventual formation of a peace treaty between the Imperials and the New Republic, the Tingel Arm was located directly between the Corporate Sector and the Imperial Remnant. Despite its location, the Tingel Arm remained one of the least explored areas of the galaxy. Many xenobiologists theorized that the Yuuzhan Vong could have developed in this area, instead of in another galaxy. The Tingel Arm was the entry point of the Yuuzhan Vong during their invasion of the galaxy, with the planets Belkadan and Helska being the first to fall to the alien invaders. (CSA, HT, SBS)

Tingel's Ghosts
this was the name of the Alliance cell which tracked Imperial movements in Tapani Sector by prowling the infonets of the planet Mrlsst.

this Core world was located in the Quanta Sector. (SWJ6)

Tinnell
this race of feline humanoids was native to an unknown Mid-Rim world. They appear to be completely clueless about the galaxy around them, but in fact were excellent mechanics and improvisors. Many of the contraptions they create are unwieldy and ugly, but function at or above the specifications of new components, making them valuable assets to starship crews. (SWJ1)

Tinn'lyi
this nation of humans lived on the Tinn'lyis Islands of the planet Corsin, and had a somewhat symbiotic relationship with the selligores of the ocean. The Tinn'lyi would gather plant material and leave it on shore for the selligores to feed on, and in return the selligores would allow the Tinn'lyi to drag large nets behind them in order to catch fish. This is the only known contact between humankind and the selligores. (COG)

Tino found himself the object of a hunt by Ona Nobis, who had been paid by Jenna Zan Arbor to eliminate Tino, as he was a link to Ren's death. Tino escaped, thanks to the efforts of Oib-Wan Kenobi and Astri Oddo. Tino then explained who scared Ren was of Zan Arbor, and told them of Captain Yur T'aug's dropping of the investigation into Ren's death. (EVE)

Tiny F
this was the handle used by one of Cularin's most enigmatic slicers, during the years leading up to the Clone Wars. It was Tiny F who discovered an encrypted transmission from Jir Tramsig to the Thaereian Military leaders dispersed throughout the Cularin System, demanding that the Thaereians crush any and all resistance they encountered immediately. Tramsig's message apparently expressed a certain fear that the Cularin Militia might be able to rally the populace to oppose any Thaereian control. The message eventually found its way to the Cularin Militia and Senator Lavina Wren, who took the message quite seriously. (LFCW)

Tiny F
see TINYF (LFCW)

TINYF
this acronym began showing up as graffiti on the buildings of Cularin, during the early stages of the Clone Wars. As it began to spread to buttons, shirts, and stickers, the population became aware that it stood for "Thaere Is Not Your Friend," and was an open criticism of the presence of the Thaereian Military in the Cularin System. After a news report by Ryk Osentay, many beings simply referred to the acronym as "Tiny F". (LFCW)

Tion
an Imperial noble, he was also a task force leader for the Emperor. He was working with Grand Moff Tarkin to secure supplies and military backing for Tarkin's Death Star project. During this time, he commanded the Imperial-I class Star Destroyer Devastator in the destruction of the Alliance base on Ralltiir. While on Ralltiir, he became enamored of Princess Leia. She used this infatuation to allow her to escape the planet without Imperial intercession. Later, after Leia and her father, Bail Organa, learned about the Empire's plans to build the first Death Star, the Organas invited Tion to Alderaan for a dinner, during which they would try to obtain more information on the battle station. They were able to discover from Tion that the plans were being moved to the Imperial vaults, but Leia could not control her anger. She accidentally let Tion know she had inside information by revealing the code name 'Death Star,' and he attempted to arrest her. A struggle ensued, and Tion was killed when he tried to pull his blaster on Leia, and instead fired it on himself. Lord Tion was portrayed by John Considine for the Star Wars Radio Drama on National Public Radio. (SWR)

Tion
this is a cluster of stars found in one of the spiral arms of the galaxy. It is comprised on some 12,000 stars, 600 habitable worlds, and three major sectors. The sectors are the Cronese Mandate, the Tion Hegemony, and the Allied Tion. (ML)

this transfer and transport company was owned by Amatha Fetz, and was based on Lianna. (ML)

Tion Hegemony
known as the Ancient and Honorable Union of the Tion Hegemony, this sector of the Tion is a collection of 27 star systems found among the furthest reaches of the galaxy. It is far from the Core Worlds, but embraces some of the oldest and most ancient human civilizations in the galaxy. During the early years of the Old Republic, the Tion Hegemony was ruled by Xim the Despot. Before Xim, the Livien League controlled the Hegemony. As the Republic grew and the Tion Hegemony was "liberated," the sector saw a decline it its fortunes. However, the Hegeomny remained the breadbasket of the Tion, providing foodstuffs for all three of the Tion's sectors. Han Solo worked for Grigmin in the Tion Hegemony at one time. The Hegemony, being so far from Imperial control, was a home to many out-of-work smugglers, swindlers, and con artists who were trying to improve their lots in life. Note that Agents of Chaos: Hero's Trial states that the outer reaches of Hegemony were made up of 175 planets. (HSR, HSL, ML, HT)

Tion Medon
this gray-skinned Pau'an served as the Portmaster of Pau City, on his homeworld of Utapau, for more than 200 years. Tion Medon could trace his family history back to Timon Medon. Although outwardly neutral, Medon was loyal to the Old Republic during the Clone Wars and in the wake of those hostilities. He was unprepared for the arrival of General Grievous and a small Separatist army, which quickly took control of Utapau and established a base of operations there. Thus, when Obi-Wan Kenobi suddenly appeared in Pau City, Tion Medon provided him with a wealth of information on Grievous' forces arrayed in the city. Tion Medon was portrayed by Bruce Spence in Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith. (OWS, SWI77, ROF, VD3)

She was one of the driving forces behind the touring museum display known as "Cradle of the Galaxy," which presented a wealth of artifacts from pre-Republic galactic civiliation. (HNN4)

Tionne
one of Luke's first Jedi apprentices on Yavin 4, Tionne was a near-human minstrel and historian. A native of the planet of Rindao, she learned of the Force from her grandmother, who instilled in Tionne the passion for ancient Jedi legends. This was unusual, for all knowledge of the Jedi was thought to have been eradicated from her homeworld. Because of her retellings of the Jedi histories, Tionne's grandmother was executed by Imperial stormtroopers in a public square. Tionne took her grandmother's stringed instrument and fled the planet, searching for any trace of information on the Jedi. She had very little Force-sensitivity, but Luke Skywalker saw enough promise in her that he invited her to help discover the ancient Jedi teachings. She eventually became a full Jedi Knight, but her powers were somewhat limited. Nevertheless, she put her talents to good use, serving as a historian and administrator of the Yavin 4 praxeum. She eventually fell in love with Kam Solusar, and the two were married shortly before the Yuuzhan Vong invaded the galaxy. Kam and Tionne served as the caretakers of the youngest Jedi trainees during the invasion, gathering them aboard the Errant Venture and eventually settling them into a new base at the Maw Installation. Tionne and Kam were ultimately among the handful of Jedi Knights to survive the conflict with the Yuuzhan Vong. (DA, HTF, EGC, L, GG, JASB, DTO, SWJ15, UF)

Tipagna
this young human was a child of the Fallanassi. He, along with several other children, were taken to the planet Teyr when the Fallanassi fled the Empire. Tipagna and his family lived in Griann before the Fallanassi deemed it necessary to move again. (SOL)

Tipoca City
this was greatest of the cities based in the wind-swept oceans of the planet Kamino. Like other cities on the planet, Tipoca City was erected on heavy stilts that extended through the water and into the bedrock of the ocean floor, and spread across more than 150 kilometers of ocean surface at Kamino's western equator. These stilts had thin profiles, which allowed the crashing waves to flow around them, rather than break against them. The buildings of Tipoca City were conical in shape, with wide, flared based and tall towers at their center. This configuration allowed the strong winds which swept the planet to move around and over the buildings without much drag, eliminating a large portion of the environmental stresses they had to endure. Access to Tipoca City was protected by a hermetically-sealed series of airlocks. To most beings in the galaxy, the sterile white color of Tipoca City was quite boring. However, the Kaminoans could see into spectra beyond visual light, and could discern swirling patterns in the stark walls. It was within the walls of Tipoca City that the Kaminoans established the huge cloning facility which produced the clone troopers of the Army of the Republic, during the decade leading up to the Battle of Geonosis and the Clone Wars. (SWI60, AOTCN, SWDB, IWE2)

Tippet
this young Ewok male was the betrothed of Kaimda, during the months following the battle of Endor. Tippet was an upstanding Ewok from Bright Tree Village, and his position in the local government made him a powerful figure, both among the Ewoks and within the Alliance. Tippet was led to believe that Kamida was assaulted by a Lahsbee, on a false rumor planted by the Hiromi spy Hirog, setting off a war between the Ewoks and the Lahsbees. In an effort to defuse the situation, Lando Calrissian suggested that Tippet fight the Lahsbee delegate in a duel to determine who would win Kamida's hand. The fight quickly got out of hand when the Lahsbee morphed into a Huhk. When other Lahsbees joined in to subdue the Huhk, the Ewoks realized that both races were fighting over nothing. (MC94)

the heroes of the Battle of Yavin stopped over on this planet, the primary world of the Tirahnn System, and were captued by Kharys and her various alien cohorts. The planet was a major trade nexus, serving as the capital of the Zeemacht Cluster of solar systems, and was under the control of the Empire during the height of the Galactic Civil War. The average day on Tirahnn lasted twenty-eigth standard hours, and its year lasted 272 local days. The planet was orbited by nine moons. (LTA1, MCA1, WOA32)

Tirahnnite
this was the term used to describe the human population of the planet Tirahnn. (WOA32)

Tiran
this ancient Drall scientist proved, some 35,000 years before the Clone Wars, that space and time were inseparable. Tiran also proved that the speed of light was an absolute boundary that could not be crossed. Many of the physical laws he confirmed were later thrown into question by the discovery of hyperspace, and the ways in which a starship could enter and exit it with a hyperdrive. Later investigation revealed that Tiran's Theory of Universal Reference did not preclude an object traveling faster than light; it just prohibited an object traveling at the speed of light. (MBS)

Tiran Vos
this was the name of a noted Zabrak individual. (UANT)

Tiranga
this Hutt controlled much of the tax collection operations of the planet Socorro during the New Order. An exile from his homeworld, Tiranga suffered a debilitating spinal cord injury as a child, and was considered a runt among his own kind. As an adult, Tiranga was just 2.5 meters in length, and the majority of his torso and tail was paralyzed. However, Tiranga was nonetheless a powerful figure on this adopted homeworld fo Socorro, and had the backing of the Society of the Black Bha'lir to add credence to his position. When other Hutts learned of Tiranga's survival, they put out a death mark for his head. This effectively kept Tiranga on Socorro at all times, unless accompanied by a heavy Black Bha'lir guard. (BSS)

Tiranga's Loft
this pleasure club was owned and operated by Tiranga the Hutt, and was located in Vakeyya, on the planet Socorro. It was here that the Hutt also held his public tax assessment proceedings. The establishment was located in a dilapidated warehouse building which was dotted with signs that indicated it was condemned. In reality, though, the interior of the warehouse was an immense bar, casino, and dance hall. A double layer of blast shields protects the building's true nature from being discovered, and layers of packed sand inside the walls help deaden any vibration and make it virtually sound-proof. The gravity inside the building is kept at two-thirds standard, in deference to Tiranga's spinal injury. Rumor had it that Lando Calrissian was a partner in the Loft, having helped finance its construction. (BSS)

Tir'arr Zur
this was the name of a noted Ranth individual, distinguished in the history of the planet Caaraz. (UANT)

Tircee
this was a common Ayrou name. (UANT)

Tiree
Tiree was an undercover Alliance operative, posing as an aide to Governor Cuvir. This allowed Tiree to obtain large amounts of Imperial data for the Alliance in this position, until he was discovered by Cuvir when he tried to collect a datapad full of fleet movements in the Tandell System. A scuffle ensued, and Tiree was forced to shoot Cuvir. He was discovered and rescued by the medical droid 2-1B, who felt no loss at Cuvir's death. Together, they fled Imperial space for the Alliance. Tiree later fled Alliance service unexpectedly, returning to Questal to try and find out what happened to Rogan, the husband of his sister Tyerle. He was incapacitated by Moff Bandor's hurlothrumbic generator, but was eventually rescued by friends within the Alliance. After recovering, Tiree returned to the Alliance, and worked as a field agent in the Tharin and Arkanis Sectors. He was paired with Yom Argo during the Alliance's investigation of the planet Iskalon, and they worked to stir up anti-Imperial sentiments among the members of The School. In an effort to put an end to their actions, the Empire attacked and decimated their homeworld of Telfrey. (MTS, GCQ, AIR, GMR1)

Tiree
a Rebel fighter pilot killed during the Battle of Yavin, Tiree was known for his daring raid on an Imperial-held research facility. He piloted his Y-Wing into occupied territory to liberate a team of engineers. Tiree was portrayed by Jeremy Sinden in Star Wars. (SW, JKG2)

Tirefin
this was a valuable form of spice. (GMS)

Tirginni Beast
this creature, native to an unsettled planet in Kathol Sector, was the favored prey of the mole serpent. These large beasts had scent glands which produced a distinctive smell. When extracted and refined, the scent glands produced a subtle perfume known as Tirginni Cologne. (SOT)

Tirginni Cologne
this cologne was extracted from the scent glands of the tirginni beast, which was native to the Kathol Sector. The subtle scent of Tirginni Perfume was perceived by only a few species, among them the Noghri, Twi'leks, Whiphids, and Hutts. These species described the colgone as pleasant mildly intoxicating. Because of the fact that tirginni beasts lived on an unsettled planet, the cost for each milliliter of the cologne was quite expensive. (SOT)

Tiro, Ti-Amun
this man was one of the handful of Jedi Masters who taught at the Almas Academy during the years surrounding the Clone Wars. He was strongly opposed to the demands from the Jedi Council on Coruscant that required all available Jedi to return for duty with the Republic Armed Forces, and turned his back on Master Jeht's explanation for the recall. (LFCW)

Tirrith
this unusual lifeform, found on the planet Beheboth, emitted a psychometric display of lights and sound that could render a human unconscious in a matter of minutes. The Tirrith had an empathic culture, in which the feelings of one part were shared by the entire organism. The few scientists who traveled to Beheboth during the early years of the New Republic were unable to ascertain whether or not the Tirrith was a single organism made up of millions of individual minds, or whether they existed in several thousand colonies of various sizes. When a colony of Tirrith was captured by Gideon Longspar, it was forced to do his bidding until Luke Skywalker arrived on Beheboth. Longspar realized that the Tirrith exuded a mild form of knockout gas, that could be used to incapacitate individuals in combat. Longspar kept his Tirrith in a special container, releasing them when needed. Luke's contact with the Force allowed him to help free the Tirrith, after defeating Longspar in battle. The Tirrith then used their unusual abilities to seed Beheboth's atmosphere, gratefully helping to end the centuries-long drought by causing rains to fall. Shortly afterward, however, Mils Giel and his assistants, Malka and Kimp Minmirn, captured a small hive of Tirrith and began to experiment with them, creating a mutant variant of Tirrith that only wanted to kill anything it came into contact with. Contained in speciallized globes, these Tirrith were part of a living bomb that Giel believed would become the Empire's next superweapon. Under Minmirn's manipulations, these mutant Tirrith could exude a toxic version of their knockout gas, capable of killing any being in range. These Tirrith could also inflict a "mind scream" onto the mind of a Force-sensitive individual, rendering them unconscious for a short time. Evidence of Giel's plans was discovered by Luke Skywalker, in the journals kept by Malka, and this evidence was used to generate a search for Giel, in an effort to put an end to his experiments on the Tirrith. (LTA3, MC66, PH)

Tirsa
an industrial world. (SWJ2)

Tirsa Wargear Corporation
an armaments manufacturer based on the planet Tirsa, they made Leviathan submersible carriers.

Titania
this Imperial-class Star Destroyer was stationed in Kathol Sector, under the command of Imperial Moff Kentor Sarne, during the early years of the New Republic. The Titania was supported by a Dreadnaught, a Nebulon-B frigate, and a CR90 corvette. During the Battle of Kathol, the Titania took heavy damage from the Bothan Combat Response Element, but maintained enough power to continue to fires its guns. This allowed time for the Bastion and the Raptor to reach Kathol and joint he fight. Eventually, the Titania sustained too much damage, and burned up in a fiery explosion. (E)

Titanicus
this gas giant was the fifth world in the Sacor, or Sacorria, System. It was orbited by fourteen moons. (CCW)

Titanite
this rare mineral was found on relatively large quantities on Haariden, buried deep in the planet's crust near its core. Because of this, it was extremely difficult and expensive to mine. Its worth, however, more than made up for the cost of its extraction. Because of this, the native population of Haariden broke into civil war over the rights to control the lands over which veins of titanite were found. Experimentation with the synthesis and extraction of titanite revealed that it could be refined to produce a substance that could be used in the production of bacta. (JQ4)

Titavian
see Goff. (WSW)

Titavian IV
this exploration vessel was owned and operated by the Intergalactic Zoological Society during the final decades of the Old Republic. Like many other ships owned by the IZS, the Titavian IV was a floating collection of lifeforms that had been gathered from across the galaxy, in the hopes of preserving some species and investigating other. The ship was based out of Mycroft, but it was attacked and left adrift during the last stages of the Clone Wars. It was unclear whether the ship had been attacked by privateers or Separatists, but an outdated distress signal used by the Jedi Order was received from the Titavian IV by Obi-Wan Kenobi. He was surprised to find Quinlan Vos aboard ths ship, fighting off a collection of repulsor-equipped morp droids. Vos revealed that he was being tracked by Asajj Ventress and Tol Skorr, and had tried to hide out in the ship's abandoned hulk. Ventress and Skorr managed to find him, but Vos' own ship was damaged, and he was forced to fight for his freedom. He agreed to explain his situation to Obi-Wan if they were able to escape from the Dark Jedi. (RDR)

tizo'pil Yun'tchilat
known as the Day of Comprehending the Will of the Gods, the tizo'pil Yun'tchilat was one of the most important rituals of the Yuuzhan Vong who invaded the galaxy. It was during the tizo'pil Yun'tchilat that the dhuryams which had been grown aboard Ch'Gang Hool's seedship were to determine which was to be the World Brain to be installed on Coruscant. The dhuryams had been trained to use whatever resources were available to them to maintain a complex ecosystem in The Nursery, and the tizo'pil Yun'tchilat required them to use most of those same resources to defeat the other dhuryams. Only the last, surviving dhuryam would become the World Brain. To ensure that slaves were not used to artificially influence the tizo'pil Yun'tchilat, Yuuzhan Vong warriors protected the central hub of the Nursery. Other warriors used shreeyam'tiz to further interfere with the link between the dhuryams and the slave seeds placed in the bodies of their slaves. Ideally, the dhuryams would determine their own fate, with only one dhuryam surviving to become the World Brain. Any slaves that had remained alive were executed by the Yuuzhan Vong, and the seedship was broken into a large number of smaller seedships by the dhuryam, for more effective dispersal of biological material to the target planet. When the Yuuzhan Vong tried to seed Coruscant, they were unaware of the motives of Jacen Solo, who had been aboard the seedship at the insistance of Nom Anor, who was working with Vergere to turn Solo to the True Way. As the dhuryams grew, Jacen befriended one of them, establishing a mutually beneficial relationship that helped the dhuryam outperform its brethern. However, during the tizo'pil Yun'tchilat, Jacen's efforts would have destroyed all the dhuryams - the last genetic descendents of the original World Brain on Yuuzhan'tar - if Vergere had not stepped in. Vergere pleaded with Jacen to to kill his new friend, the one surviving dhuryam, and Jacen relented. The dhuryam was installed on Coruscant, now renamed Yuuzhan'tar, and began to reshape the planet in the image of the longlost homeworld. It retained a vestige of its relationship with Jacen, and later agreed to help him monitor the Yuuzhan Vong's progress on Coruscant. (T)

Tizowyrm
this small, grub-like creature was bio-engineered by the Yuuzhan Vong to act as a decoder. Each tizowyrm was 3-5 centimeters in length, and kept in a small coffer. When a Yuuzhan Vong needed to be able to understand and communicate with an alien species, they would insert a tizowyrm into their ear. The tizowyrm would crawl inside and lodge itself near the brain, where it would intercept the sounds of communication and store data. Each tizowyrm could store an immense amount of data as well as perform incredibly-fast, real-time manipulation of the information it received. This allowed the tizowyrm to subliminally provide the Yuuzhan Vong using it with information on how to communicate with the other species. However, the tizowyrm tired after prolonged use, and could literally vibrate itself to death if it wasn't taken out to rest. (VP)

Tizzin, Dane
this Imperial officer was just a Lieutenant when he was placed in charge of a TIE Fighter maintenance bay. Among those working for him were the parents of the woman known as Sapphire. Tizzin was generally incompetent, however, and his lack of ability resulted in an explosion in the fighter bay. Tizzin himself was out of the bay at the time of the explosion, despite the fact that he was on-duty. His family connections within the Empire managed to remove any culpability on his part and saved his career, blaming the incident on Sapphire's parents. He later was appointed to the position of Commodore, and served as an attache to the Moff of Kira Sector. (CRO, SS)

T'jaleq Kith'Araquia
this noted Araquia Doctor and epidemiolgist was credited with identifying the disease known as the Direllian Plague. Kith'Araquia also discovered that Shiarha roots were effective in treating the disease. Shortly after the Battle of Yavin, Doctor Kith'Araquia was wanted by the Empire for supposed terrorist activity. He was known to be a dedicated to and passionate about preserving the rainforests of his homeworld of Kirtania, and he also had a wicked sense of humor. He was also a pacifist, but realized that his people needed to something in order to throw off the Imperial yoke. When a group of Alliance agents arrived on Kirtania to obtain a cure for the Direllian Plague, Kith'Araquia enlisted their help in planning as assault on the local Imperial base. In the aftermath of the battle, Kith'Araquia and his forces collected a huge number of Shiarha roots for use in combatting the Plague. (SWJ1)

Tjulan Kwaad
this Yuuzhan Vong, a member of Domain Kwaad, served as a Master Shaper during the invasion of the known galaxy. Tjulan Kwaad did not approve of Nen Yim's heretical methods for regenerating the bio-technology of the Yuuzhan Vong, but was forced to accede to the wishes of Supreme Overlord Shimrra in allowing Nen Yim to continue her work. To this end, Tjulan Kwaad agreed to allow Kae Kwaad - who was actually the Supreme Overlord's jester Onimi - to travel to the Baanu Miir to act as Nen Yim's Master. (EVR)

TK-622
this was the callsign of one of the Imperial stormtroopers who was dispatched to maintain order on the planet Ralltiir, during the months just prior to the Battle of Yavin. Two years earlier, TK-622 saved the life of Commander Akobi, and Akobi showed his gratitude by ensuring that TK-622 got promoted to new positions whenever he was moved. The pair honed their combat skills together, and developed an innate trust of each other's abilities. After his entire squad was ambushed and killed by Ralltiiri rebels, TK-622 questioned the doctrines of the Empire in his next meeting with Akobi. A Sergeant at the time, TK-622 was again forced to put his life on the line when a hidden thermal detonator went off near them. Shortly afterward, Akobi was transferred to a posting on the first Death Star, and TK-622 went with him. Upon arrival, TK-622 discovered a sabotaged RA-7 protocol droid, again saving Akobi's life. His investigation led him to the discovery that the droid's command programming had been altered by an Alliance agent. After another droid claimed the life of Commander Akobi, TK-622 tracked down the saboteur, one of the rebels who fought against the Empire on Ralltiir. As the two struggled, the Alliance launched its attack on the Death Star. As he reaffirmed his own belief in the Empire, TK-622 was killed when the battle station was destroyed in the Battle of Yavin. (SWESL)

this was one of the few Tchuukthai ever to be encountered off their native homeworld. (WOTC)

TL-118
known as the StarHammer, this was Subpro's short-range attack fighter, developed during the height of the Galactic Civil War. It measured 35 meters in length, and required a pilot and gunner to operate. Its weaponry included a pair of light laser cannons, a pair of twin laser cannons, a concussion missile launcher, and a bomb bay, making it capable of taking on heavy assault missions. Subpro planned to market the starship to either the Alliance or the Empire, whichever bid the highest. The TL-118 was capable of travelling through hyperspace, but was equipped with a slow Class 3 hyperdrive. The Empire rejected the design, and the Alliance couldn't afford it, so Subpro sold the remaining ships to the highest bidders, which often was local militias or planetary defense fleets. (IA)

TL-1200
this was one of the TL-series of freighters produced by Suwantek Systems. The spear-shaped TL-1200 measured some fifty-two meters in length, was armed with a pair of turret-mounted laser cannons, and required a crew of three officers and two gunners to operate. It could accommodate up to six passengers in comfort. (TF)

TL-1800
a Suwantek Systems starship design, the TL-1800 was a 30-meter-long craft which typical of most commercial freighters. It was lightly armed, poorly shielded, and slow. It was sometimes referred to as a "Waddle" by starship captains. Despite its appearance and perception, the TL-1800 was a reliable craft, especially after Suwantek replaced the Portal Delta nav computer with a more reliable Fabritech model. The TL-1800 required a pilot and co-pilot to operate, and could transport up to seven passengers and 110 metric tons of cargo, depending on the interior configuration. An additional 300 metric tons of cargo space could be realized with the addition of cargo pods. The TL-1800 was armed with a pair of laser cannons. (SS)

TL3

Tla agreed with the plan to have the priestess Elan pose as a defector, but the plan's failure led to the death of Elan and the loss of Vergere. When the mission was reviewed with supreme commander Nas Choka, Tla was removed from his command of the invasion fleet and reassigned to the Outer Rim. (HT)

t'laalak-s'lalak-t'th'ak
this Xi Charrian was a member of Workshop Xcan during the final years of the Old Republic. When the mechno-chair of Nute Gunray was captured on Cato Neimoidia, Anakin Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi discovered that one of the rear legs appeared to have been adorned with his signature carvings. He was angry and confused when the Jedi arrived on Charros IV to question him about it, then tried to escape when the Jedi linked his work to the Trade Federation and the Confederacy of Independent Systems. The Jedi managed to recapture him, and t'laalak-s'lalak-t'th'ak revealed that the mechno-chair had been brought to Charros IV by someone other than Gunray or his cronies. Although t'laalak-s'lalak-t'th'ak didn't know the being's name, he was able to tell the Jedi that the hyperwave transceiver in the mechno-chair had come from Escarte. (LEV)

T'laerean Larn
this young, Sullustan male discovered that he was sensitive to the Force while growing up on his homeworld of Gelgelar. T'laerean learned that he could enter the mind of another creature, starting with the reeho birds and small primates of the swampy jungles. T'learean had to have physical contact with his companion, but then could place his own consciousness inside the mind of the other creature. T'laerean could then travel a short distance within the companion, and had to return the creature to his sleeping form in order to return to his own body. T'laerean trained under the Wise Man of Kooroo, but was impetuous and young. While melding with a reeho bird, T'laerean learned of a Glarsaur attack on his village. Unfortunately, the reeho was caught by the child Reanyn, who mother planned to kill the bird and use it in a stew. This would have left T'larean's mind adrift. The situation worsened when Reanyn believed T'laerean was dead in his bed, having fallen into a deep sleep while controlling the bird. Although the reeho managed to escape, it was soon captured by a Glarsaur who tried to eat it alive. His consciousness suddenly fled back to his body as the reeho died, but T'laerean had a headache for many days after. (SWJ14)

However, the t'landa Til were much larger than Berrites, standing about two meters tall at the shoulder. Their heads were attached to their bodies by a short, humped neck, and their legs ended with huge, padded feet. Their skin was thick and oily, and hung from their huge bodies in heavy folds and wrinkles. The t'landa Til also had two thin arms which ended in four delicate fingers, and speciallized glands at their elbows exuded an odorous oil which protected their skin. Their bodies ended in thin, whiplike tails that they carried curled atop their backs. They enjoyed keeping their skin moist by immersing themselves in mudpits, alleviating the burden of carrying their immense bulk on their short legs. They also slept in specially-designed hammocks that support them without the need for a bed. t'landa Tils had two separate hearts and three separate stomachs. (TPS, THG, SHPT)

T'less was one of the few Shamed Ones who lived independently, away from groups like that led by Vuurok I'pan. Like the other Shamed ones, though, T'less believed that the Jedi Knights were not abominations, but saviors of the Shamed Ones and symbols of the new ideology which should be embraced by the Yuuzhan Vong. For this reason, their band remained small, in case they were captured by the Yuuzhan Vong warriors. This ensured that their small cult of Jedi followers would never be fully discovered. (FH1)

TLG
Line Master's model of tube-launched grapple, the TLG allowed the user to fire an adhesive disk at a target. An enclosed winch helped take up any slack in the line. (OE, GUN)

T'nun
this name was common among Sullustan males, and meant "hot-tempered" - or, more literally, "volcanic geyser", referring to the unpredictability of certain natural phenomena. (GCG)

T'nun Bdu
this dapper Sullustan merchant worked his way up from the bottom of the shipping business, from being a mate on his uncle's ships to earn money, and eventually buying his own ship. After making some more money, he traded up to purchase a battered old CR90 corvette. He offered his assistance in shipping supplies for the Alliance and the New Republic, until his untimely death. His New Republic supply convoy, en route to Dantooine to supply the Eol Sha colonists, was attacked by Admiral Daala. Her Star Destroyers lay in wait in the Cauldron Nebula, after discovering the existence of the colony. T'nun Bdu was in command of the convoy, which was stripped of its cargo and set free.

Toba
this Gungan scout made regular trips to the city of Theed, as part of his duties to the Gungan Grand Army. Toba was the son of Neesada Bari and Bullba, and was the bravest of all his siblings. In fact, it was said that Toba hitched a ride on the tail of an Opee Sea Killer as a youth. On several missions, Toba had the opportunity to meet with the students at the Royal House of Learning, and eventually made friends with many students. A curious young Gungan, Toba was in Theed when the Trade Federation invaded the planet Naboo, and was caught in the city. Instead of trying to return to Otoh Gunga, Toba lent his skills and resources to the Naboo Underground. He later fought alongside Jar Jar Binks during the Battle of Naboo. Shortly after the Battle of Naboo, Toba purchased and modifed the B'zabuu-class transport known as the Sea Killer, and helped the Gungans settle the moon of Ohma'Dun. He was later accepted into the Naboo Space Fighter Corps, flying G-1 starfighters in the Iron Cesta Flight. After two years of active duty, Toba retired from the military and took up the life of an independent spacer. (IOT, WOTC)

Toba
this name, which meant "laughs loudly", was common among Gungan males. (GCG)

Tobal Lens
developed by Renatta Racing Systems, a Tobal lens was an ovall crystal about the size of a human head. The internal matrix of the crystal reflected and refracted light into a powerful beam of swirling colors, providing the energy necessary to power Renatta's needle ships. While not very expensive, Tobal lenses were difficult to locate on the open market, and this lack of replacement parts eventually drove Renatta out of business. The Tobal lens, if not handled carefully by the installer, could blind a being for hours if viewed directly. When properly shaped, installed and calibrated, a Tobal lens could convert heat to light at close to one hundredd percent efficiency, making it a near-perfect energy source to power the photon drives of the needle ship. (TG)

During the Battle of Naboo, Ceel was forced to defer to Boss Nass' wish that Jar Jar Binks be also named as a General, but would not let the bumbling Gungan hold any real duties. Ceel and his officers devised the plan of attack that had the Gungans draw out and detain the Trade Federation's droid army, while allowing Queen Amidala and her small force to infiltrate the city of Theed and capture Nute Gunray and Rune Haako. The battle waged on in an even sort of match until the droid army managed to knock out the heavy Gungan shields. At this point, Ceel ordered a full retreat, hoping to regroup his forces and attack again. However, the droid army swept over them and prevented a full retreat. The Gungans were saved when nine-year-old Anakin Skywalker and Bravo Squadron destroyed the Neimoidian droid control ship, rendering their immense battle force inoperative. (TPM, SWRPG)

Tof
this species of green-skinned humanoids was native to the planet Tof, may have been located betond the galactic rim. The average Tof was quite rotund, and was devoid of morals and compassion. Tof society was ruled by a hereditary monarchy, and young royals were often made military leaders as a sort of education for their future duties. The Tofs were the sworn enemies of the Nagai, and they eventually conquered the Nagai more than 300 years before the Battle of Bakura. It was the Tofs who broke up the Hiromi victory party on Zeltros and captured the insectoids, shortly after the Battle of Endor. The Tofs had been chasing a group of Nagai, and followed them into the galaxy to Saijo. They later tried to overtake the galaxy after subjugating Zeltros, but were put down by the combined might of the New Republic, the Nagai, and the remnants of the Empire. Like their bitter rivals the Nagai, the Tofs were used by Lumiya as part of a plan to overthrow the New Republic, until they were defeated at Saijo and left powerless.

The facility was destroyed when the New Republic launched its assault on Moff Kentor Sarne's stronghold on Kal'Shebbol, and Brophar was left with nothing. When the call went out for crewmen to join the team of the FarStar, Brophar joined up to work on the ship and exact a measure of revenge against Sarne. He also hoped that service aboard the FarStar would help him achieve his dream of seeing the galaxy before he died. He maintained his own ship, the Muvon, and brought it with him inside the FarStar's hangar bay. Brophar was fond of giving advice, whether it was asked for or not. However, after the ship was stolen by Gorak Khzam, he became surly and short-tempered. (DARK, KO, KR)

Toggan
this Imperial Moff was the governor of the planet Quellor, during the years following the Battle of Yavin. He tried to maintain a tight reign over the stormtroopers in his command, especially when anti-Imperial rallies began taking place around the planet. When a rally formed in Terrina Square, some time before the Battle of Hoth, Moff Toggan ordered the troopers to hold their fire unless he specifically gave the order. Despite his command, the stormtroopers opened fire when an image of Emperor Palpatine was burned in effigy. All the protesters were quickly killed in the hail of blaster fire. (RESB)

Togoria
a planet in the Thanos system, Togoria is the homeworld of the Togorian race. It is a world of grassy plains and rolling hills, the result of steadily decreasing tectonic activity. It has a vast store of untapped natural resources. The planet's gravity is somewhat less than standard. (GG4, TPS)

Togorian
a race of bipedal feline aliens from Togoria, the Togorians have long, sinewy limbs and well-muscled bodies that are equally useful moving through a forest or running across an open plain. Their hands and feet are studded with heavy claws, which are retractable on the hands. They regularly feed on bist and etelo herds, but are the favored prey of the reptilian liphons. The Togorians soon realized that they shared this trait with the mosgoths, and they formed a relationship which provided mutual protection as well as friendship. The Togorians have a society in which the males and females only see each other for a few days each year. The males spend their days wandering the plains and hunting for food, while the females stay in the cities and tend to their business there. The Togorians have a limited technology, including a solar technology maintained by the females, although they are fond of high-tech devices. The Togorian society is presided over by the Margrave, a position held by a male of a certain family line. (DFRSB)

Togruta
native to the planet Shili, this humanoid race distinguished by the immense, striped horns - known as montrals - which sprouted from each side of their head. Three draping appendages ringed the lower part of their skulls. The coloration of these lekku evolved as a form of camouflage, confusing any predator which might try to hunt the Togruta. Many beings believed that the Togrutas were venomous, but this was not true. This belief was started when an individual first witnessed a Togruta feeding on a thimiar, which writhed in its death throes as if poisoned. On their homeworld, Torguta lived in dense tribes which had strong community ties. The montrals of the Togruta were hollow, providing the Togruta with a way to gather information about their environment ultrasonically. (TCG1, VD2, SWDB, PJSB)

Togruti
this was the native language of the Togruta people. It consisted of trills, long vowels sounds, and subtle movements of the Togruta head-tails. (PJSB, UANT)

Tohno
this beautiful woman was one of the many Jedi Masters who were pressed into duty as field Generals during the Clone Wars. Although she was not much younger than Anakin Skywalker at the time, she was paired with Jedi Master Obi-Wan Kenobi during the assault on Zaadja, some eighteen years after the Battle of Geonosis. It was Master Tohno's part in the mission to infiltrate the Separatist fortress and destroy it, which Obi-Wan and Anakin worked with their clone trooper squadrons to create a diversion. She was chosen for the mission because her studies with her previous Master had centered on architecture and engineering, skills that allowed her to understand the unique buildings of Zaadja and get inside when others could figure out the correct pathways, then set explosives in positions that would bring the entire structure down swiftly. She managed to get inside the fortress, but discovered an entire nest of Geonosians waiting for her. With the Force, she managed to get past them, but was seen by a sentry before she could set the explosives. She ordered the others to remain outside, despite the fact that her success in the mission would mean her own death. Although Anakin tried to rescue her, Tohno convinced that he needed to let her go in order to fulfill this mission. She needed to come to peace with her death on her own terms, not with unnecessary deaths included. Anakin reluctantly cut off his pursuit, and although she was attacked by a squad of Geonosians, Master Tohno was able to set off the explosives she carried. The fortress was destroyed, and the mission was completed successfully, but Anakin continued to struggle the need for so many Jedi to sacrifice themselves to the war. (RFY)

Tojjevvuk
this rare, albino Wookiee was born around the same time as Chewbacca. In previous generations, an albino Wookiee would have been left in the lower levels of Kashyyyk's forest to be eaten by another predator, since white fur stood out against the forest background of the wroshyr trees. However, Tojjevvuk's father Tvrrdko would not let his son be killed, and Tojjevvuk was brought up with the protection of his family, and grew to maturity. Tojjevvuk threatened Chewbacca, shortly after learning that Chewbacca had been courting Mallatobuck. Tojjevvuk believed that he was more worthy of her, challenged Chewbacca to a fight, even though it broke the rules of honor among the Wookiees. Chewbacca maneuvered Tojjevvuk into the lower levels of the forest, where the albino Wookiee was caught and killed by one of the jungle predators. (C)

Tok Ashel
this Neimoidian was placed in command of the Cartao Expeditionary Army, shortly after the onset of the Clone Wars. Working with Dif Gehad, he worked to take control of Cartao and subdue the leaders of the Spaarti Creations manufacturing facilities. His primary mission was to secure the fluid technology of the Cranscoc in order to retool it for use in manufacturing D-90 battle droids. In order to secure the cooperation of Pilester Binalie, Tok Ashel tried to hold Binalie's son, Corf, as a hostage.

Tok, Begas
a native of the planet Entralla, this crimelord suddenly found himself in possession of the Shard of Alderaan computer program, shortly after the Battle of Yavin. He arranged to hold an auction aboard the Dune Princess, hoping that his friendship with Heater would provide him a measure of protection against Jabba the Hutt. Tok was known for his sabacc parties, although he lost more often than he won. Tok owned Jabba a large sum of credits, and hoped to pay off the debt by selling the Shard of Alderaan. Knowing what the program was, Tok invited members of the Alliance and the Empire to participate in the auction, as well as several independent interests. Unfortunately for Tok, the Dune Princess encountered a huge sandstorm and was grounded. During the resulting confusion, he lost control of the datapad which held the code for the Shard of Alderaan. The computer program was lost,and Tok was eventually executed by Jabba's henchmen. (LAA, SWJ3)

Tok, Hogar
see Tok, Shogar (J2)

Tok, Shogar
a native of Brentaal, this man was the theater Commander of the Separatist forces which took control of Brentaal, during the early stages of the Clone Wars. A tall, well-muscled man who kept his white hair long and braided into a thick ponytail, Commander Tok chafed at commanding his forces from a distance. He longed to be at the front lines, but Count Dooku wanted him alive, so that he could continue to rally the people of Brentaal against the Republic's forces. Tok's base of operations was in the prison facility on Brentaal, which the Separatists converted into an easily-defended fortress. A concerted attack by the Jedi Knights seemed doomed from the start, since much of the intelligence used to plan the attack had come from Separatist espionage agents. Jedi Master Shaak Ti, along with Quinlan Vos and a single clone trooper, managed to gain the confidence of three prisoners - Sagoro Autem, Lyshaa, and Ryyk - eventually defeated Tok's forces and liberated the planet. During the fight, Tok and Master Ti fought briefly, before the lightsaber of the wounded Jedi pierced Tok through the chest. Jerrod Maclain was installed as the new governor of Brentaal, replacing Arcel Mosbree who was arrested for his part in opening Brentaal to the Separatists. (SWI70, J2)

Toka
a primitive race native to the Rafa System, it was thought that the Toka were the descendants of the Sharu race, given that they hold so many of the Sharu legends in reverence. The Toka live in the ancient Sharu buildings, and their society and religion are based on the Sharu legends and histories. Rokur Gepta learned that the Toka, like the humans who inhabit the Rafa System, arrived there from other systems a long time ago. The Toka were believed to have arrived first, and had the first contacts with the Sharu. This contact was broken when the Sharu mysteriously disappeared, and the Toka have been affected ever since. This disappearance of the Sharu has accounted for their lack of intelligence and inability to advance technologically, and thus the Toka have been dubbed the Broken People. Since the disappearance of the Sharu, the Toka have become fairly simple-minded, and exist only to tend the life-orchards of the Rafa System, growing the beautiful and potent life-crystals. Gepta also learns that the Toka themselves are human stock, withered with apparent age due to their close interaction with the life-crystals. All of this knowledge held by Gepta, of course, is proven mere legend when Lando Calrissian and Mohs discover the resting place of the Mindharp. It is then revealed that the Toka are, in actuality, the Sharu themselves. When the Sharu civilization was at its height, the Sharu were scared by an unknown event. This caused them to begin hiding all record of themselves and their civilization in the huge computer banks found throughout the Rafa System. These were disguised as simple buildings. The Sharu also hid themselves from prying eyes by locking away all their knowledge in these computer systems. They developed the life-crystals as a way to continualy suck the knowledge and intelligence from succeeding generations, perpetuating the illusion of the ignorant Toka. A single Toka from each generation was allowed to maintain some of the ancient knowledge. This Toka, the High Singer, was charged with keeping the legends of the Key and the Mindharp alive until the Bearer and the Emissary came to the Rafa System. This would signal to the Mindharp that the threat to the Sharu had passed, and they could emerge from their disguise as the Toka and re-establish themselves. (LCM)

Toka
this Mon Calamari served as an Admiral in the Alliance's Navy, during the early years of the Galactic Civil War. Admiral Toka was in command of the Alliance's Tak Base, on Talay, when it was destroyed by the Imperial Darktroopers. Toka and all the base personnel were killed in the battle. (T4)

Tokhlor Tallow
this was the Basic term used to describe the disgusting mixture created from the oils and mucus contained in the body of a tokhlor. The tokhlor was a creature that was bio-engineered by the Yuuzhan Vong. When thrown to the ground, a tokhlor exploded in a goopy mess, coating the ground with a film of slime known as tokhlor tallow. This substance was extremely slippery, and could make any surface nearly frictionless. When a pursuer ran over the slippery spot, they were thrown off-balance and often landed face-first on the ground, at which point the Yuuzhan Vong could disable them. Tokhlor tallow was also corrosive, and could eat through body armor and other strong surfaces if not washed away. (GMR8)

Tokkat
this Ewok and his brother, Wunka, served the New Republic as soldiers aboard the re-christened Star Destroyer Liberator during the years following the Battle of Endor.

Toklar
this was one of the more common names given to males of the Mon Calamari race. To the Mon Calamari, this name was sometimes used as an alternate spelling for Toka. (GCG)

Toklhor
bio-engineered by the Yuuzhan Vong, this disgusting tick-like creature grew to almost two kilograms in mass. Easily distinguished by their foul smell, tokhlors were swollen with oils and mucus. It was this combination of bodily fluids that the Yuuzhan Vong employed as a way to stopping a pursuer. When thrown to the ground, a tokhlor exploded in a goopy mess, coating the ground with a film of slime known as tokhlor tallow. This substance was extremely slippery, and could make any surface nearly frictionless. When a pursuer ran over the slippery spot, they were thrown off-balance and often landed face-first on the ground, at which point the Yuuzhan Vong could disable them. (GMR8)

Tokmia
this was one of the planets, in addition to Allyuen and Hoth, singled out by Darth Vader as possible hiding places for the Alliance in the Anoat Sector. He ordered probe droids sent there during the months just prior to the Battle of Hoth. Tokmia itself was a tundra world, with vast flatlands covered by snow and ice. A barely sentient race of beings known as the Oku evolved on the planet. Figg Excavations made a fortune from the planet's ores and crystal deposits, and left handouts for the Oku during each operation. When the mines played out, Figg Excavations pulled out of their Tokmia operations. In response, the Oku lit huge fires to act as landing lights, hoping the offworlders would return. (ESBR, WOA33)

Tol Ado
this world was the third planet orbitting the star Sil'Lume. It sat just on the edge of the Sil'Lume Asteroid Belt, and was controlled Imperial Governor Sebastian Parnell during the Galactic Civil War. The average surface temperature on Tol Ado was well over 400 degrees Celsuis, and there was little natural atmosphere. The surface of the planet was formed of black coal, and the meager atmosphere was filled with swirling clouds of black coal dust. From space, Tol Ado appeared to suck up all the light around it, like a swirling black ball. Parnell established a six-billion-cell prison facility on the planet, recognizing that the bleak landscape would only help to strangle the hopes of a prisoner. Parnell installed 124 sensor satellites in orbit around the planet, in order to maintain security on the planet. (JH)

Tol dosLla
a member of the staff of the Ukian Overliege, Tol dosLla was the oldest son of Gol dosLla and was a well-respected politician. (TLC)

Tol Sivron
more bureaucrat that scientist, Tol Svron was the chief scientist at the Maw Installation. Impatient, petty, uncreative, and a stifling taskmaster, he was the leader of the creation of the first Death Star concept. He is a member of the Twi'lek race, and was extremly threatened by true talent. Tol Sivron was a member of his community's head clan, until one of the other members was killed in an accident. The remaining four members, including Sivron, were exiled to the Ryloth wastes. Tol Sivron killed the other three Twi'Leks during their first night of exile, and was trying to make it to civilization when he discovered Wilhuff Tarkin setting up an Imperial refueling station on the planet. Tarkin recognized Sivron's potential from the story he told, and took Sivron under his wing. Sivron proved himself an excellent manager, and was promoted to his position as Chief Administrator of the Maw Installation by the newly-promoted Grand Moff Tarkin. He is extremely obsessed with following Imperial doctrine to the letter. Tol Sivron is killed when the prototype Death Star he has commandeered is sucked into the black holes of the Maw and destroyed. Note that Star Wars: Epsiode II - Attack of the Clones indicates that the Death Star was first conceived by the Geonosians and Count Dooku, so Tol Sivron's role in its development may be rendered apocryphal. (JS, COTF, JASB, AOTC)

Tol Velmoc Mountains
this range of mountains, located on the planet Velmor, was riddled with caves and crevices. During the height of the New Order, rebels on the planet who resisted the Empire's presence on Velmor used the caves as hiding places.

They were forced to crash-land on the planet, and the sharp end of the Tusk disintegrated upon impact. The rest of the ship was more or less intact, and the Gamorreans turned it into The Broken Tusk bar. (WSV)

Tolea Biqua
this space station was erected in the atmosphere of the planet Genarius, and served as the base of operations for a gas and energy mining corporation. Tolea Biqua was unique among Genarius' floating cities in that its shielding system absorbed the radiation carried up by the storms which raged across Genarius, using the radiation as a source of power to maintain the station. From a distance, Tolea Biqua is a beautiful jewel hanging in the clouds of Genarius. However, upon closer investigation, it appears that the city was cobbled together from bits and pieces of every other floating city ever erected in the galaxy. The city was originally build on the orders of Riboga the Hutt, and evolved to become an example of bad taste and excess. (LFC)

Tolen, Andi
as a young child, this woman was abandoned by her parents on Tatooine. She learned to survive on her own, and claimed to have killed her first man at the age of twelve. Her life became a series of "kill or be killed" episodes, which eventually led her to the bounty hunting profession. She was later hired by Herogga the Hutt, who used her as a messenger and errand girl and rewarded her richly. After several years working for Herogga, Andi set out on her own, but she maintained her loyalty to Herogga and often worked for him as a freelance hunter. She was skilled in tracking her quarry through spaceports as well as wilderness areas, and her short stature and "cute" appearance often disarmed her targets. (WOTC)

It infected a great number of worlds some twenty-five years before the Battle of Naboo, before the scientists and medical personnel of the Old Republic discovered a vaccine. Most who contracted the virus could be cured by the vaccine. It was later discovered that the planet Kegan had suffered an outbreak of the Toli-X virus, but because of their isolationist government, had never learned of the vaccine. A great many Keganites died because of their adherence to the General Good. (FFT)

Tolokai
this stoic Gotal served as one of Mon Mothma's aides during the early years of the New Republic. Like all Gotals, Tolokai's sensitive horns allowed him to receive vibrations and eminations from those around him. This allowed him to anticipate any attacks which might be aimed at Mon Mothma. During a short break from his official duties, Tolokai was targeted by agents of Warlord Zsinj, who brainwashed him into believing Mon Mothma was an enemy as part of Project Funeral. The desire to kill her was activated by a seemingly inane phrase, and Tolokai tried to kill her with a hidden vibroblade. However, one of her other aides, Malan Tugrina, took the blade in his chest, diverting Tolokai's attack long enough for Mon Mothma to call for a security detail. Then Malan used the last of his strength to tackle Tolokai, and they tumbled down a flight of stairs. Malan died from loss of blood, while Tolokai was killed when his neck snapped in the fall. (SOC)

He quarantined himself from his family, effectively stopping its advance. He died alone in his house, and was later discovered by Gavin Darklighter and Emtrey during a sweep of the area. (KT)

Tols Vengra
this cyborged Jenet worked for Opun Mcgrrrr. He received his Aj^6 implant as a youth, in an effort to augment his already impressive memory. Tols hoped to become a high-ranking government official, but the surgery which connected the implant to his brain wiped out much of his personality and pride, and he decided to became an Imperial official. His attempts to join the Empire were thwarted by the fact that he wasn't human, and Tols was even threatened with slavery twice before he met up with Mcgrrrr. Using his enhanced brain, Tols went to work on Mcgrrrr's businesses, helping the Corellian to maximize his profits. Tols began skimming a portion of Mcgrrrr's profits for himself, secreting them away in hopes of being able to return to Garban with a small fortune.

Tolut
this male Armalat was one of the businessbeings who controlled the Unity of Community, on the planet Ansion, during the years leading up to the Clone Wars. He initially favored the secession of Ansion, and was suspicious when the Galactic Senate dispatched a team of Jedi Knights to mediate a treaty between the city dwellers and the Alwari. Tolut himself was Force-sensitive, but lacked any formal training. Nevertheless, he could manipulate objects with the Force, and claimed that the Jedi were sent to Ansion to use their "magic" against the backwater natives. Luckily for the Jedi, Tolut was openminded enough to listen to them, especially after Luminara Unduli deftly maneuvered a pitcher of cold water over his head and dumped it on him. He was among the nine members of the Unity to vote in favor of Ansion remaining with the Old Republic. (APS)

Tomb Beast
created by the energies of the Dark Side of the Force when Freedon Nadd was buried on the moon Dxun, these creatures were large reptiles that were twisted to become ferocious predators.

Tomcat
this youth was a native of Somov Rit, shortly before the Battle of Ruusan. His given name was Darovit, but he kept it secret like the other natives of the planet. Like his cousin Bug, Tomcat displayed a strong connection to the Force, which attracted the Jedi scout Torr Snapit. While Tomcat and Bug were chosen to travel to Ruusan and augment the forces of the Jedi Knights, Tomcat's sister Rain was to be left behind. Tomcat used his own skills in the Force to make it appear that Rain could touch it, and she was allowed to travel with them. However, upon reaching Ruusan, their ship was shot down and Rain was lost in the crash. Tomcat and Bug were rescued by Snapit, but they were set upon by a group of Sith warriors. Snapit sacrificed himself to allow the boys to escape, but Tomcat remained behind to steal Snapit's lightsaber. Later, Tomcat grew impatient with the Jedi, wishing to join the battle instead of doing menial duties and learning patience. He joined Lord Charny's forces, and gleefully killed a Sith in his first battle, but this only drew Tomcat closer to the Dark Side of the Force. When the Jedi appeared powerless to stop the Sith, Tomcat embraced the Dark Side fully. He joined Githany and the Sith, and was the being responsible for murdering Lord Charny. He chose to abandon the name Tomcat and use his true name, Darovit. Just before Lord Kaan unleashed the thought bomb, Tomcat and Bug faced each other in battle. Bug was injured by Githany, as she tried to collect Tomcat and escape before the bomb was activated. Before they could escape, Bug was killed by a falling stone and Githany fell into a deep chasm. Tomcat managed to survive the thought bomb, and wandered the blasted surface of Ruusan with two bouncers as companions, to mature by himself. (JVS)

Tome, Jared
this Imperial diplomat was, at one time, in command of a "re-education center," which specialized in the torture of those individuals suspected of sympathizing with the Alliance.

Tome was provided with credits by the Empire, and was backed up by the undercover agent, Breezer Nos-Carron. (LAA)

Tomer
this man worked as a hangar bay controller at the Bilbringi shipyards during the years following the death of Grand Admiral Thrawn. When the rogue Jedi Dal Konur arrived at Bilbringi to steal a ship that could take him to Bastion, he clouded Tomer's mind and implanted the suggestion that he was actually Dal himself. Tomer then explained to anyone he met that he was Dal Konur, and would come quietly if he was placed under arrest.

Tonin
this was the nickname Lara Notsil used for her astromech droid. The droid, like the X-Wing it flew in, were originally owned by Atton Repness, but were given to Lara after she exposed Repness' blackmail starfighter sales ring. The droid's name means "Little Atton" in the dialect of her hometown, New Oldtown, on Aldivy. When Lara fled the Wraiths, after Garik Loran revealed that she was really Gara Petothel, Tonin went with her to the Iron Fist, where she volunteered her services to Warlord Zsinj. In reality, she planned to take down Zsinj any way she could. To that end, she programmed Tonin to surreptitiously take control of the Super-class Star Destroyer's MSE-6 messenger droids. Tonin did so discreetly at first, but became bolder when none of the smaller droids were discovered missing. Tonin reprogrammed them for terrorist duties, including the sabotaging of the warship's engines, computers and shields. The effort nearly worked on its own, and was highly successful when it was combined with the firepower of the New Republic's warships at Selaggis Six. However, Zsinj managed to escape using the Second Death as a decoy. Lara and Tonin also escaped, fleeing to the planet Corellia to lay low. (IF, SOC)

At this time, the other sister emerged, presenting Lando with a holoprojector and a disk from Solo, who was having a good laugh at Lando's expense. Lando vowed to get Han back for it. Just before the Battle of Yavin, they took a job with Jabba the Hutt. They left Tatooine a mere three hours before Shada D'ukal and Karoly D'ulin arrived at the Mos Eisley cantina, trying to impersonate the Tonnika sisters in order to book passage off Tatooine. Both sisters were members of the Kiffu race, and were raised on the planet Kiffex. (SW, MTS, TME)

Tookarti
this Chadra-Fan served as Korto Vos' majordomo, during the early stages of the Clone Wars. Tookarti was also a master at obtaining information, and helped Vos recruit some of the best spies and thieves available on The Wheel. Unknown to Vos, however, Tookarti was actually an agent of Count Dooku, and had devised the scheme which allowed a datadisk containing information on a Separatist attack on Kamino to fall into Zenex's hands. This ensured that the Separatists would have the upper hand during the battle for Kamino, even as the Old Republic believed it had the advantage. Although these plans failed to result in a Separatist victory at Kamino, Tookarti continued to work for Count Dooku, primarily out of fear for his life. His double-agent status was compromised shortly afterward, when Tookarti tried to sell information to the Jedi Council that Korto Vos had become a double agent himself. Because this nearly cost Korto his life, Korto returned to confront Tookarti. When the Charda-Fan couldn't reconcile his actions, Korto - who was actually Quinlan Vos, on a deep-cover mission for the Jedi - decided to eliminate any further treachery. As Tookarti pulled out a blaster, Korto beheaded him with his lightsaber. (RS, RDB)

Tooke-Trap Plant
native to the planet Naboo, this carnivorous plant was named because it preferred to feed on the flesh of the tooke. The fragrance of the tooke trap plant resembled the mating hormones of the tooke, making the plant irresistable to the tiny rodents. (GF, WSW)

Toola
this Outer Rim planet is a barren, windswept world locked in perpetual winter. An ancient Jedi Master made Toola his home during the years just prior to Palpatine's Jedi purge. He was a curator of records on Coruscant, and was helping the Old Republic just before Palpatine's rise to power. The Jedi Master, fleeing Palpatine's wrath, took his archives with him to Toola, but he was hunted down and killed, and the records destroyed. The planet Toola is home to the Whiphids, as well as to the snow demons. Its day lasts 23 standard hours, and the year on Toola lasts 423 local days. (GG4, CPL, SWJ10)

Toom Clan
based in an underground cavern on the Videnda Sector world of Dorvalla, this gang of cutthroat mercenaries was active in the Outer Rim during the last decades of the Old Republic. The Toom gang started out with legitmate goals, primarily as deep-space rescue and salvage operators. Over time, they shed their humanitarian guises and focused on making money any way possible. Their services were available to any being who could pay them, and they lacked any form of scruples which might have hindered their ability to take on even the most despicable work. Their motto was simple: "Pay us enough and we'll make worlds collide." The Tooms, led by the Weequay Nort Toom, used an early version of the Interdictor-class cruiser to drag spaceships from hyperspace. The Tooms established a staging base on the planet Riome, in order to help throw off any pursuit. The Tooms were hired by Patch Bruit and the Lommite Limited mining corporation to destroy the operations of InterGalactic Ores on Dorvalla, but Darth Maul used a subtle misdirection to lead the Tooms into bringing down both corporations at the same time. In this way, Dorvalla was opened up to the Trade Federation. Despite the plan's success to Darth Sidious, the Toom Clan was destroyed on Riome when the combined forces of Lommite Limited and InterGalactic Ores struck back in revenge for being double-crossed. (DMS)

Toonbuck Toora
this Sy Myrthian represented her homeworld as an Old Republic Senator, and was known an idealistic politician who became slowly corrupted by power and wealth. She was known in certain circles as one of the Old Republic's most corrupt Senators during the years leading up to Palpatine's assumption of the role of Grand Chancellor. A large, heavy-set alien with white and gray fur and red eyes, she became exceedingly wealthy by exploiting the many loopholes of the Republic's laws. Toonbuck allied herself with Orn Free Taa and Passel Argente in their opposition of Chancellor Valorum, in the years leading up to the Battle of Naboo. With the growing movement toward secession that permiated the Senate in the years prior to the Clone Wars, Senator Toora convinced Sy Myrth to secede from the Republic, on the heels of the secession of the planet Ando. Her support of secession was hinted at by many followers of the Senate, who noted that Senator Toora was absent from the Senate for more than a month prior to Sy Myrth's secession. She was later observed by Obi-Wan Kenobi on the planet Geonosis, during the meetings that cemented Count Dooku's relationships to the Commerce Guilds, the Trade Federation, the Techno Union, and the InterGalactic Banking Clans. Note that this Senator is described as Tonbuck Toora in the Star Wars Episode I Insider's Guide. (IG1, OWS, COD, SWDB, SWI69)

Toong
this is a species of squat, thin-limbed aliens from the planet Toong'L, located near the Tund System. Their bodies are short in stature and covered with green skin. They have no neck or shoulders, as most humanoids do, and their faces seem to make up their entire torso. When Old Republic scouts first made contact with the Toong race, they were unable to comprehend the visitors from the stars, and their civilization was thrown into turmoil. International wars erupted, much to the dismay of the scouts, who had been led to believe the Toongs were peaceful. After many weeks, the Republic was able to re-establish contact with the Toongs, realizing that the sudden appearance of aliens triggered a fight-or-flight instinct in the Toong people. Eventually, the Toongs agreed to join the galactic community, after realizing that alien races weren't something to fear. The Toongs quickly adopted the technology of the Republic, and began to colonize nearby worlds. Modern Toongs were forced to flee Toong'L when an environmental disaster left the planet uninhabitable, just before the Battle of Naboo. They fled to Tund, but were again forced to relocate when Rokur Gepta destroyed that planet. (SW1, IG1, IWE1, SWDB, SWI53, UANT)

However, when a pair of comets struck the planet's surface, the resulting environmental disaster wiped out virtually every square inch of habitable surface area on the planet. The surviving Toongs were forced to flee to the nearby world of Tund. Decades later, during the Yuuzhan Vong invasion of the galaxy, the alien invaders captured Toong'L and installed a yammosk there. This gave the Yuuzhan Vong a base of operations from which to launch raids on New Republic outposts in the sector. (IWE1, SWI53, NEGC, UF)

Toong'L Security Systems
this manufacturer of security droids and other systems was a noted competitor of Cestus Cybernetics during the Old Republic. When the X'Ting inquired about a security system for the protection of several royal egss - to be hidden after the X'Ting believed that Cestus Cybernetics was behind the Great Plague - Toong'L Security Systems gladly took on the project. Their system was in intricate combination of guardian worms and scent-based receptors that challenged a being with several layers of verification of their intent. The mutated worms that were brought to Ord Cestus were vicious and carnivorous, but could be defeated by cunning warriors. Because of the scent-based traps that followed, only an X'Ting could manage to reach the deepest levels. Once inside the main chamber, am X'Ting was forced to answer three questions. Whether or not the X'Ting answered correctly, the system declared that the answers were wrong, and forced the X'Ting face their own execution. In this way, the system could determine - from the individual's scents - whether or not they had penetrated the system for their own prestige, or for the better good of the X'Ting people. While the system proved to be exceptionally secure, the worms that were used to guard the forward sections attacked the X'Ting population that chose to live underground after the Great Plague. They stumbled into the worms' chamber and were set upon, and their were no survivors. To make matters worse, Toong'L Security Systems was destroyed when the planet was hit by a comet, eliminating all knowledge of the ways to bypass the security systems. Eventually, it was Jesson Di Blinth who penetrated the system, along with help from Obi-Wan Kenobi, and recovered the eggs. (HIV)

Tooqui
this Gwurran Ansionian befriended Barriss Offee, some ten years after the Battle of Naboo, when the Jedi Knights were dispatched to Ansion to negotiate a treaty between the city dwellers and the Alwari. Like most members of his species, Tooqui was hyperactive and continually in motion, and hated the Alwari with a passion.

Tooth
this clone trooper was part of the platoon dispatched to Pengalan IV, during the early stages of the Clone Wars, to eliminate a Separatist missile facility on the planet. He was given the nickname Tooth by Joram Kithe, who was stranded on the planet with the platoon's survivors after the Separatist sprang a trap. The nickname, given to help Joram communicate with the troopers, was based on the fact that the clone trooper had lost a tooth during a training exercise. Tooth was killed shortly afterward, when he decided to take on the suicide mission of drawing Separatist starfighters away from Tur Lorkin. This allowed the rest of the platoon to enter the settlement, destroy the actual missile production facility, and escape the planet. It was later revealed to Joram that Tooth and his platoon-mates were actually enhanced clones, having been given additional self-reliance and initiative during their development. These enhanced troops were dispatched with observers like Joram, in order to ensure the production of clone troopers was continued. (SWI65)

Toprawa
this planet was initial hiding place for the plans that the Alliance stolen for the first Death Star. Princess Leia took the Tantive IV there as part of Operation Skyhook, on her way to Tatooine. She and Captain Antilles dropped the Tantive IV out of hyperspace near Toprawa only long enough to receive a transmission of the plans. Unfortunately, Toprawa had been placed under Imperial blockade, and they were attacked by the Devastator. They escaped back to hyperspace, but were tracked by the Devastator to Tatooine. The planet itself was devastated by the Empire, in retribution for its assistance to the Alliance. The planet was martially reduced to a pre-industrial state, and the inhabitants were subjected to all sorts of Imperial degradation. The Alliance continued to work toward freeing the planet's inhabitants, but the Imperial presence was often too strong. Following the death of Emperor Palpatine, the Imperials forced the natives to mourn his death. The perceived sincerity of the mourning determined how much food was given out. (SWR, XWN, IF)
