A tough, pragmatic Weequay, Hondo Ohnaka leads a notorious Outer Rim pirate gang from his headquarters on Florrum. A former colleague of Jango Fett and a former lover of Aurra Sing, Ohnaka won fame during the Clone Wars when he kidnapped Count Dooku, Obi-Wan Kenobi, and Anakin Skywalker and tried to ransom all three for a big payout. Since that incident, he maintained a peculiar relationship with the Republic -- respecting the Jedi Knights, but not being above robbing them blind or betraying them. He was, after all, a pirate through-and-through.
This band of space pirates haunts the shipping lanes of the lawless Outer Rim Territories, in search of cargos to steal and travelers to hold for ransom. They have prospered just enough to maintain a stronghold on a sulfurous world, where they keep stores of grog, food, and other comforts. During the ongoing Clone Wars, the pirates attempted to remain neutral lest they get too drawn into an unprofitable conflict.
Felucia is a world teeming with fungal life-forms and immense primitive plants. Much of the planet has a fetid, humid landscape overgrown by forests of bizarre wilderness. Many of the life-forms on Felucia are partially or completely translucent; they color the sunlight as the beams penetrate their skin. Others are opaque and imposing, like the enormous jungle rancors that roam the landscape. Beneath the hazy canopies of the enormous pitcher plants and leafy growths is a surreal color-drenched expanse. During the Clone Wars, the Jedi attempted to defend Felucia from those who would exploit the planet.
The Crucible was an ancient Jedi vessel, dating back to the days of the Old Republic. For centuries, it ferried Jedi students from Coruscant to the sacred world of Ilum, where the pupils would undergo the Jedi ritual known as The Gathering. Once a Jedi youngling uncovered a kyber crystal on Ilum, he or she would spend the return trip learning how to assemble a lightsaber. The children would learn from the ancient, wise architect droid, Huyang.
