An idyllic world filled with vast green valleys and flowing waterfalls,Kiros was the site of a colony of Togruta artists, led by Governor Roshti. The artisan colony tried to avoid taking sides in the Clone Wars, but Count Dooku arrived on-planet with a droid army, and "insisted" the Togrutas accept his offer of protection. Within ten standard rotations, all 50,000 Togruta colonists had vanished.
Highly durable freighters used by the Zygerrians, these blocky transports often have their spacious storage bays outfitted for live cargo. Primitive yet powerful thruster engines sit on articulated boom arms that extend from the ship's primary hull. Though the ship's hold can carry dozens of miserable passengers in appalling conditions, the vessel can be competently operated by a single pilot.
Count Dooku was a menacing Sith Lord and central figure in the Clone Wars. Once a Jedi -- trained by Yoda -- he became disillusioned with the Jedi Order and thirsted for greater power. Dooku voluntarily left the light side behind and became Darth Sidious’ dark side disciple, taking the secret name Darth Tyranus and leading the Separatist army. Dooku advanced Sidious’s secret plot to take over the galaxy, but forgot that betrayal is the nature of the Sith.
A horrific half-shelled monstrosity, the blixus is a rare beast that is regarded a prize to most collectors, as long as they are able to void the reach of its deadly tentacles.The blixus is coated with an articulated carapace, and hard chitin covers its six pick-like legs. Its well-muscled underbelly conceals a ghastly gash of a mouth filled with sharp teeth, and a pair of pincer-tipped graspers. Its most terrifying feature, though, are the five sinewy tentacles that terminate in sucker-lined grasping pads.
Zygerria is a picturesque world with fortress-capped mesas that extend above windswept plains. Graceful brezak creatures catch the wind currents and soar effortlessly from butte to butte. The beauty of the planet hides the fact that Zygerria's cities were all built upon the backs of slaves. For thousands of years, Zygerria supplied slave labor the the galaxy; the Zygerrian Slave Empire became wealthy and powerful, as did those who exploited their chained subjects. After the Jedi Knights cracked down on the slave trade, Zygerria diminished. Its old fortresses and slave markets are still impressive edifices, though their luster has faded from time. Some Zygerrians are actively plotting a return to the old ways, and are finding eager allies in the Clone Wars.
