While hunting for salvage, Tatooine’s Jawas carry customized ion blasters built from scavenged parts. The weapons fire blasts of ionized particles, which disrupt droids’ electronic systems, shutting them down. Ion weapons are a long-established galactic technology, and come in a range of sizes and power levels – massive planet-based ion cannons target orbiting warships instead of droids, but work on the same principle.
Built by the Geonosians, Count Dooku’s Puncworra 116-class interstellar swoop was an example of a solar sailer, a beautiful and expensive ship notable for the sails it would unfurl for interstellar flight. Dooku’s solar sailer brought him from Geonosis to Coruscant after the opening battle of the Clone Wars, and he later lent solar sailers to his apprentices Asajj Ventress and Savage Opress.
Chadra-Fan are meter-high, rodent-like sentients with big ears and dark eyes. They hail from the planet Chad in the galaxy’s Outer Rim.
