a unit of measure which describes the amount of buildup a turbothrust converter coil can maintain.
this model of landspeeder was produced by Ubrikkian Industries.
a massive transport ship.
a Starfeld starship design, the Z-10 was originally targetted for use by scouts and traders. The Z-10 never gained a foothold in that market, however, and Starfeld began selling it in other markets. It was designed to be fast and maneuverable, and many of its systems were poorly adapted for combat use when modified. A sleek ship, the Z-10 had a pair of cargo pods slung below its central fuselage. Measuring 20.3 meters in length, the ship required a pilot to operate and could transport two passengers and up to 45 metric tons of cargo. It was armed with a front-mounted Prm-3 autoblaster which was hardwired into the sensor package.
this was the model number of one of Aratech's Cargo Master speeder trucks. Designed for military use, this 20-meter-long repulsor-truck could carry and pilot and gunner, as well as up to 24 troops. It was armed with a single, turret-mounted heavy blaster cannon.
this was a model of stun baton produced by Merr-Sonn. It was used by both the Empire and the New Republic Security Force.
this 2-1B series medical droid was one of the few examples of its kind to go rogue, adopting an independent agenda that it set out to accomplish on its own. Known as "The Doctor" by its creations, Z2-1B was once a regular medical droid, until sometime during the New Order, when a lethal plague wiped out the entire population of the planet on which it was working. Z2-1B continued to investigate a possible cure for the plague for many months after the deaths of its human companions, before realizing that it needed help to complete its mission. Lacking organic resources, Z2-1b began to create droids to serve as its assistants. Over time, Z2-1B came to realize that organic life was fragile at best, and that its droids would serve another set of organic masters until they died as well, leaving the droids behind once again. With this realization, Z2-1B suddenly found that it believed humans to be inferior to droids. With this realization came the drive for independence, and Z2-1B set out to develop what it considered the "perfect" droid, using his existing creations as a baseline for his work.
this was the designation of Seinar Fleet Systems' heat dissipation unit, used to reduce the operating temperature of large repulsorcraft and AT-AT walkers.
this was the designation of Aratech's heavy Cargo Master speeder truck. It measured thirty meters in length, and required a pilot and co-pilot to operate. It coud carry up to fourteen passengers and seven metric tons of cargo.
Z2-9 Hover Vid-Cam
this was a type of droid developed for use by investigative reporters. It can a number of recording facilities, including holographic video and full-spectrum sound.
this Imperial hover-probe droid was assigned to Major Stipling during his search for a source of doonium. The droid was destroyed by Limna Yith, during Black Sun's attempt to retake possession of the Yen-2 mining operation.
Z3-NO Mark II
this series of landscaping droids was developed for sale to wealthy landowners who were too lazy or distracted to do their own landscaping. The Mark II eventually found its way into the usage of planetary terraformers. The Z3-NO has a round, turtle-shapped body supported by four legs. The front two legs have digging implements, while the rear two support the body when digging.
a group of Muurian transports destroyed by the Empire during the Galactic Civil War.
this was the designation of an advanced jet pack system manufactured by Mitrinomon. It had maneuverable exhaust nozzles that helped the user change direction in mid-flight, and it has built-in gyrostabilizers to counteract gravity during landings. It was believed that Boba Fett used a modified version of the Z-6 during the height of the Galactic Civil War. Because the Z-6 relied on an ambient oxygen supply to develop its propulsion, it could not be used in the vaccum of space or underwater. It also had the annoying tendency to fire when hit hard.

Z-6 Rotary Blaster
this rotary blaster cannon was developed for the Grand Army of the Republic during the Clone Wars by Merr-Sonn. It was designed as a rapid-fire weapon, capable of producing a devastating spray of blaster bolts from its rotating barrel. However, the galven circuitry of the main weapon required dedicated recharge time, which limited the Z-6's ability to actually "spray" a target with energy. Any attempt to overfire the Z-6 led to excessive overheating and the possibility of explosion. Thus, its regular use in the combat of the Clone Wars meant that most Z-6s in use required regular maintenance, and those that were used most often were prone to breakdowns. Despite these problems, the Z-6 could still fire more than 160 rounds per second, earning the nickname of "chaingun." This ability to lay down a wide spray of fire made the Z-6 the perfect weapon for defending a landing zone, but many clone troopers claimed that it was too bulky to be carried around. Thus, the Z-6 was relegated to special tactial missions where it didn't require regular maintenance and transport.
Sirplex shield projector used on the A-Wing starfighter.
this was one of the early modifications SubPro made to the basic Z-95 Headhunter, giving the ship enhanced weapons and shielding to withstand more firepower. The AF3 - with the AF standing for Assault Fighter - was developed some three years prior to the Battle of Naboo.
this snub fighter was the last ship which was built by Incom in cooperation with Subpro Industries. The two corporations severed their relationship just before the onset of the Clone Wars, a few years before Incom began production on the X-Wing. One of the key designers of the ship was Seti Ashgad. They are 11.8 meters in length, and were equipped with twin engines, forked tails, and bomb pylons. They were famous for how much punishment they could take in battle, as well as the adaptability of the basic fighter design to other mission profiles. Each Headhunter was equipped with up to 3 blaster cannons on each wing, a concussion missile launcher, and a unique bubble canopy that allowed its pilot an almost 360-degree view of the sky around him. They employed a holographic, heads-up display that made the bubble canopy even more effective. However, the Z-95 lacked a hyperdrive. With the advent of the X-wing, the Z-95 became relegated to smugglers' armies and backwater usage, but still maintained a great following due to their toughness. During the era of the New Order, Jessa and Doc had six of them in their defense system, while Talon Kaarde even had a few of them in his fleet during the early years of the New Republic. They have been clocked at 1,150 kilometers per hour in an atmosphere, and can generate sublight speeds of 85 MGLT. They are equipped with the following shipboard components:

this New Republic Intelligence datafile contained information on the re-instatement of Lando Calrissian to an acting officer of the New Republic military, during the hunt for the Teljkon vagabond. Much of the datafile is conjecture, as it was never determined which office actually re-instated Calrissian.
this seemingly unimportant planet, located in the Outer Rim, was the site of a ferocious battle some eighteen months after the Battle of Geonosis. The Separatists had established a droid manufacturing facility on Zaadja, but it was discovered by the Old Republic. Despite the planet's cold ecosystem, the Geonosians who traveled to work at the manufacturing facility found sufficient ores and materials to erect huge spires that resembled their homeworld.
this Wookiee left his homeworld of Kashyyyk many years before the onset of the Great Sith War, and settled on the planet Taris. His reasons for leaving Kashyyyk were a closely-guarded secret, since the memories of his old life were quite painful to recall. The truth was that it had been Zaalbar's own brother, Chuundar, who had sold his people into enslavement by allowing Czerka Corporation to infiltrate Kashyyyk and install huge manufacturing facilities. After learning of Chuundar's part in Czerka's actions, and after hearing Chuundar denounce their own father Freyyr as a senile old fool, Zaalbar became enraged at attacked his brother. While the fight might have ended honorably, Zaalbar's anger led him to bear his climbing claws in combat, an action which was forbidden by Wookie law. Zaalbar was branded a "madclaw" and forced into exile. He ended up on Taris, after travelling through several star systems looking for work. While many beings simply regarded him as an unintelligent brute who was good for nothing more than a gang enforcer, Zaalbar worked hard to eke out a legitimate living on the planet. Quite by accident, he met up with Mission Vao in the Lower City, and the pair forged a quick and lasting relationship. Mission Vao's knack for locating food and shelter, Zaalbar's intimidating form usually kept them well-protected. When Zaalbar - who Mission Vao always called "Big Z" - was captured by a group of Gamorrean thugs, Mission found herself turning to a group of Old Republic heroes to rescue him. Among her newfound friends were Bastila Shan and Carth Onasi, and the group quickly became good friends after Zaalbar's escape. Mission and Zaalbar played key roles in the search for Darth Malak, helping to repay the debt for Zaalbar's release. Zaalbar eventually returned to Kashyyyk, and helped his fellow Wookiees throw off the yoke of slavery by defeating Chuundar and breaking Czerka's hold on the planet.
this was a common name used by the Qwohog race.
Zaarin was an Imperial Admiral in service during the Galactic Civil War. He was placed in charge of the research and development of new TIE Fighter models, including the the TIE Advanced and TIE Defender, by Emperor Palpatine and Darth Vader. In order to ensure that the Imperial fighters could operate without support, Zaaroin negotiated with the Habeen to obtain TIE hyperdrive technology. While he openly supported the Emperor's plans to capture Admiral Harkov following the defection of his fleet, Zaarin was plotting to move his fleet to Coruscant to kill Palpatine. He chose to make his move shortly after the death of Prince Xizor, when Lord Vader had been dispatched to clean up the remnants of Black Sun. Using the cover of Imperial fighters, he outraced Imperial pursuit in the Glory and reached Coruscant ahead of Vader, but was unable to capture Palpatine's shuttle. Vice Admiral Thrawn arrived and chased Zaarin into hyperspace. Zaarin later re-appeared, and tried to steal the prototype hibridium-based cloaking device design from Thrawn. Zaarin nearly succeeded, capturing the CR90 corvette Vorknkx, which had been equipped with a cloaking device from the research lab in the Iast System. However, Zaarin attempted to flee into hyperspace with the ship cloaked. The cloaking device had not yet been perfected for use in hyperspace, and the device exploded. The corvette and her crew, including Zaarin, were destroyed upon entering hyperspace.

Lando Calrissian was headed to this star system, after losing Cloud City to Zorba the Hutt.
this female Kubaz was the Queen of the Zabin Hive, controlling the area around the Silver Forest of Dreams during the height of the New Order. Queen Zabin was easily distinguished from other Kubaz by the blue tattoos on her face and snout, as well as the diamond rings that adorned her trunk. When Alliance agents arrived on Kubindi with Han Solo, on a mission to rescue Grubba the Hutt, Queen Zabin demanded they they cook her a human meal in order to win her trust. If the meal pleased her and her collection of chefs, then they could have Grubba. Although the meal met with the Queen's tastes, Grubba was taken into custody by Imperial forces on Kubindi. Although Solo and his companions were set free, they were forced to pursue the bounty hunters and the Imperials in order to locate Grubba.
this was one of the poorer hives of Kubaz, native to the Silver Forest of Dreams on their homeworld of Kubindi.
this near-human species had several sub-species, each of which was distinguishable by the vestigial horns which ringed their heads. They were known for their ability to withstand great amounts of pain. The Zabrak races were native to the planet Iridonia, but discovered the ability to travel through space early in the history of the Old Republic. They quickly set out to colonize more hospitable worlds after a group of Duros explorers provided them with the knowledge of spaceflight. The strong will and self-confidence of the Zabrak led them to establish a number of colonies on remote worlds, each as loyal to its colony as to their homeworld. One of the largest settlements of Zabrak away from Iridonia was located on the planet Talus. Among the unique aspects of the Zabrak physiology was the presence of a secondary heart. Both muscles worked together to supply blood to an individual's limbs and organs, and had to work in synchronization in order to ensure proper bloodflow. Any arrhythmia in one heart could cause both to start fibrillating, which swiftly led to death if not corrected, because the bloodflow would be essentially stopped as the two hearts worked against each other.
(IG1, SWK, WOTC, UANT, MBS, SWI83)
this was the native language of the Zabrak people, originating from the planet Iridonia.
Zabrak Battle Cannon

this noted Columi archaeologist believed that he had discovered the burial ground used by the Star Dragons, somewhere in the Xuaquarres System. He hired a group of freelance scouts to take him there, but they discovered an Imperial weapons storehouse instead of Star Dragons on the system's fourth planet. Zagsm'ith was undaunted, though, and found that the planet was riddled with cave and caverns, and stumbled upon the remains of a Star Dragon. His discovery caused another Dragon to rouse from his lair and travel to Xuaquarres in order to determine what was happening. The Dragon killed the Imperials and allowed Zagsm'ith and the scouts to leave. However, upon emerging from hyperspace, they all discovered that there was no reference to Xuaquarres in the ship's logs and that they couldn't remember what had happened over the last several days.
this was a legendary Rodian monster.
this modified CR-90 corvette was captured by the noted pirate Venslas Beeli. It was named for a legendary Rodian monster. It was armed with 4 double turbolaser cannons and a pair of tractor beam projectors. The Zahtjav was originally an Old Republic scout craft that was decommissioned at the onset of the New Order and used as a cargo ship.

Zak "Squidfella" Quiglee
this Gungan was one of the best bongo racers of his generation. He was also one of the most vocal opponents of recklessness of racers like Neb Neb Goodrow and Spleed Nukkels. He tried to lobby for their banishment from bongo racing, but any charges he brought forward were eventually dismissed. During the ensuing races, Squidfella became increasingly agitated with Spleed's tactics. During run of the Otoh Gunga Challenge, he tried to destroy her bongo after seeing that the remote-seein devices had been disabled by kreetch eels. Before he could finish the job, however, Nen Neb rammed his bongo into that of Squidfella, breaching Squidfella's bubble canopy. After the race, Squidfella had disappeared, although his bongo was recovered from the floor of Lake Paonga. He then managed to sneak back into Otoh Gunga and steal a military bongo, which he hoped to use to attack his rivals, whom he had learned were working with Lob Dizz to rebuilt Boss Nass' military heyblibber. He tried to kill them, but they managed to get the heyblibber working and rammed Squidfella's own vessel. He was knocked unconscious, and was later arrested and held for trial. He was found guilty on counts of stealing military vessels and attempted murder, and was banned from racing and sent to a correctional facility for many years.

Zal Afreg Kt'Aya
this male Coynite was the junior Zal'Tra of the Kt'Aya clan at the height of the Galactic Civil War. He was the favored son of the oldest Var'Sairk on Coyn, and his father favored remaining neutral in the Galactic Civil War. Zal Afreg was a strict adherent to the En'Tra'Sol, which he also manipulated to his own advantage. However, Zal Afreg had yet to prove his own personal honor, and many believed he didn't have any. His chief rival at the time was Zal Tuag Th'Trar.
Zal Tuag Th'Trar
this junior Zal'Tra was the son of a Coynite noble who was sympathetic to the Alliance. Because of this, Zal Tuag got the chance to acquaint himself with many outstanding off-worlders. He used these meetings to report back to his father on their honor and status, as well as the status of the Galactic Civil War. Zal Tuag was fairly self-righteous about his heritage, and earned himself a rivalry with Zal Afreg Kt'Aya in passing.
this man was a junior executive with Radell Mining during the height of the Galactic Civil War. His role was the hiring of temporary and contract employees, and devoted his career to ensuring that Imperial Mining Corporation never gained more market share than Radell. He disapproved of any employee who didn't dedicate his or her career to Radell.
this large, omnivorous reptile was native to the planet Naboo. They were swift-moving and intelligent, and were fierce predators. Despite their habit of living in the uplands of the planet, zalaacas were excellent swimmers. Little is known about the zalaaca, but they strongly resembled sando aqua monsters. The front feet of the zalaaca were studded with claws, and the rear feet were protected by thick spikes on their fetlocks. Gungans considered the capture of a wild zalaaca foal to be a right of passage, and the successful capture and training of a zalaaca meant the Gungan obtained a loyal war mount.
this heavily-tattooed pirate worked in the Elrood Sector during the height of the Galactic Civil War. His bald pate was covered with swirling designs, and his moustache was braided with beads and hung down on either side of his chin. He was known to the various criminals and law officers of the time as a dirty, cruel, and opportunistic fighter who cared little for galactic politics.

this Dathomiran Witch was the matriarch of her clan, during the years following the Battle of Naboo. She was the former wife of a Jedi Knight, and she used his own powers to augment her own Dark Side connection. When she was strong enough, she killed her husband and set out to raise her daugther, Ros Lai, as a Witch. However, Ros Lai seemed to be deformed, and Zalem ignored her while allowing her sister Witches to torture the young woman. Over time, Zalem's power grew on its own, and when the Witches discovered the Star Chamber on Dathomir, she knew that the time had come to assert her power. Zalem dedicated huge amounts of resources to unlocking the secrets of the Star Chamber in order to gain access to the Infinite Gates. However, her eagerness caused a failsafe in the Gate to be overlooked, and the resulting effect caused the destruction of the planet Ova. This attracted the attention of Mace Windu and Saesee Tiin of the Jedi Council, who sent Quinlan Vos to put a stop to Zalem's machinations. However, Quin was unable to stop Zalem from unleashing an Infinity Wave at Coruscant. However, Ros Lai confronted her mother shortly afterward, and Ros Lai executed Zalem in an act meant to avenge the death of her father.
this was one of the more common Kel Dor surnames. Its meaning translated into Basic as "weaponsmith".
this was a common name among adult Codru-Ji.
this was a common name used by the Omwati people.
ths creature was native to the planet Zaloriis, and was found at the base of the leeward side of the Fantain Mountains.
this was the sentient race which was native to the planet Zaloriis. Innately skittish and fearful, the Zaloriians spent much of their history living in small towns, away from each other and the settlements which sprang up on the planet over the centuries. They avoided the open desert, fearful of "dune ghosts" and other scary creatures.
this wind-swept planet was covered in desolate, sandy wastes, which made it inhospitable at best. This was the primary reason that the Empire chose Zaloriis as one of the primary manufacturing locations for All-Terrain Armored Transports (AT-ATs) during the height of the New Order. The native Zaloriians tended to stay well away from the Imperial facilities, living in small outposts on the outskirts of most cities.
this was the capital city of the planet Zaloriis.
a planet located in the Jendar Sector.
one of the two major pro-human producers of bacta on the planet Thyferra, the Zaltin faction was brought into the Bacta Cartel as the "competition" to Xucphra. Zaltin benefitted greatly from Emperor Palpatine's reign. Along with the Xucphra faction, Palpatine decreed that all bacta would be produced by the two groups, and it would be produced for military use only. This eliminated smaller competitors while creating higher profits. It didn't remove the Ashern faction, but viewed them as terrorists. They have a corporate culture that is very different from that of their competitor, Xucphra, although both employ nearly 300 Vratix worker for each human manager. When Zaltin realized that the Empire was doomed, they worked on two fronts to take control from Xucphra. First, they promoted Bror Jace for pilot's status with Rogue Squadron, in an effort to gain ties to the New Republic. Second, they began supplying the Ashern with money and weapons, hoping to gain support from the native Vratix who actually produced the bacta. With the New Republic's support, the Zaltin faction was able to defeat the Xucphra and was given control of the bacta production on Thyferra.
(XWN, KT, BW)
this was the title given to the heir of a Coynite Ag'Tra.
the site of Thyferra's primary starport, Zalxuc City was established at the height of the New Order to house the human population of the planet. They were responsible almost solely for the production of bacta, but numbered just 10,000. When Ysanne Isard took control of Xucphra and bacta production, many Zaltin families fled the planet. The city was then renamed Xucphra City.
this Clawdite woman was a noted bounty hunter, during the last decade of the Old Republic. She was also a rival of Jango Fett, as the two were generally considered the best bounty hunters of their generation. Being a Clawdite, Zam had the ability to alter her shape, a trait which allowed her to infiltrate the inner circle of her targets with great ease. Her decision to become a bounty hunter was labeled as heretical by her fellow Clawdites, although Sam herself considered is "progressive." As part of her training, Zam learned the teachings and techniques of the Mabari, achieving the third level of prowess before setting out on her own. She then trained to become a bounty hunter on the city-world of Denon, while earning a living as a corporate security guard. Some years before the Clone Wars, Zam and Jango were both employed by Fernooda the Dug, working for General Ashaar Khorda, to recover the Infant of Shaa. They were unaware that they were actually working for General Khorda, and Zam later convinced Jango to reclaim the Infant of Shaa, in an effort to avoid Khorda's utilization of the artifact to destroy Coruscant. The pair was reunited during Jango's search for Komari Vosa and the Bando Gora cult, when Jango enlisted her help to free Bendix Fust from the Oovo IV prison facility. Zam helped Jango reach Kohlma and defeat Vosa, but was injured in the attempt. Jango rescued her, allowing Zam to receive medical treatment and resume her career. Despite their differences, Jango and Zam became grudging friends, and Zam even befriended Jango's young son, Boba. She taught the boy about the importance of books and the ability to read, showing that the acquisition of information is key to planning and good results. Just before the Battle of Geonosis, Zam was contacted by Jango, who had been hired by the Trade Federation to assassinate Senator Padme' Amidala of Naboo. The pair had planned to kill Senator Amidala when she landed on Coruscant, but the attempt killed her handmaide, Corde', instead. A second attempt, this time at Amidala's apartments, drew in the Jedi Knights, for Obi-Wan Kenobi and his apprentice, Anakin Skywalker, had been assigned to guard the Senator. Zam herself was nearly captured by the Jedi at the Outlander Club, but Jango refused to have his plans exposed. He killed Zam himself, in order to prevent any possible betrayal on her part.

Zan Arbor, Jenna
a native of the planet Ventrux, this noted transgenic scientist earned fame early in her career by creating a vaccine to a space virus which threatened an entire planet. She then devoted her career to helping low-technology planets like Melasaton overcome their difficulties. Jenna was also a good friend of the Belascan Senator, Uta S'orn. About twelve years before the Battle of Naboo, she reserved Didi Oddo's café for a dinner party on an anonymous tip from Fligh. However, she didn't like the atmosphere and claimed the food was too cold, and swept out of the café with her entourage. It was during this party that the Sorrusian bounty hunter, Ona Nobis, who had been tracking Didi, sneaked into the café and laid a trap for the Oddos. Meanwhile, Jenna took the opportunity to capture Qui-Gon Jinn and transport him to Simpla-12, where she had been conducting experiments into the nature of the Force. Jenna revealed that many of her magnanimous actions in saving dying worlds were engineered by her own hand, as a way to earn the credits necessary to fund her private experiments. On worlds such as Belasco and Mindemir, she had purposely poisoned the water supply with bacteria she herself had engineered, then played the part of savior when she suddenly "discovered" the antidote. The unsuspecting planetary governments paid large sums of credits to have the bacteria neutralized. Many of the actions on these planets were ratified by the Old Republic Senate, although it was later revealed that Senator S'orn had falsified the voting in order to ensure Arbor Industries was given the chance to "solve" the problems. Zan Arbor claimed that her experiments were simply helping evolution along, culling the weak and allowing the strong to survive. She had begun her experiements into the nature of the Force on Ren S'orn, but found that a Jedi Master would be a better subject. She kept Qui-Gon in a specialized chamber, connected to several implants which could detect his connection to the Force. She knew that the Force was attuned to the body's chemical makeup, and traced its basis to the blood, but couldn't determine the exact connection. Her plans began to fall apart after she captured Qui-Gon, when the Jedi began to try and capture her. She fled Simpla-12 for Belasco, hoping to take another favor from Uta S'orn and draw out the Jedi. Despite her subterfuge and guile, Zan Arbor was captured by Qui-Gon and later exiled on a penal colony for her actions. However, she managed to make her way offworld and arrived on Vanqor several years before the Battle of Geonosis, where she began working on the drug known as the Zone of Self-Containment. She was forced to flee Vanqor when her lab was discovered by Obi-Wan and his apprentice, Anakin Skywalker, so Zan Arbor set up a base on Romin. On Romin, Obi-Wan discovered that she had established a relationship with Granta Omega, who agreed to fund her latest project. However, she was forced to go into hiding when Roy Teda was overthrown. This nearly turned out to be a profitable experience when the disguises of Obi-Wan and Anakin were exposed by the real Slam and his gang. It was then that Mace Windu and a group of Jedi reinforcements arrived on Romin and quickly took them prisoner. However, Zan Arbor had actually been working with Joylin the entire time, and through his deceit she was able to flee Romin with the real Slams, but not before the Jedi attached a tracking device to their ship. She and her cohorts traveled to Falleen, and hid in the Blackwater Systems facility to work on delivery mechanisms for the Zone. The Jedi discovered the facility, forcing Jenna and Roy Teda to destroy it and flee to Coruscant. She then accompanied Granta Omega to Korriban, where they planned to meet their Sith benefactor and finally gain true power. The barren, desolate environment of Korriban was tough for her to handle, as she had become used to the trappings of wealth. When the pair was finally caught by the Jedi Knights, she found herself separated from Omega. After he was killed while trying to destroy Obi-Wan, Jenna fled once again, and was not seen again. Note that Jedi Quest: The Changing of the Guard names this character as Janna Zan Arbor.

this male Zabrak, a native of the planet Talus, was one of the many field surgeons who supported the Grand Army of the Republic during the height of the Clone Wars. Zan came from a wealthy family, and was trained at the best educational facilities they could afford. In addition to his medical education, Zan also studied music with a professor who once taught at the Coruscant School of Music. He was stationed at the Rimsoo Seven military hospital on the planet Drongar two years after the Battle of Geonosis, where he became fast friends with Jos Vondar. In order to relieve the stress of field surgery, Zan Yant spent his downtime playing his quetarra. His skills as a surgeon were surpassed only by his skill as a musician, and it never failed to amaze Jos that Zan had not taken up a career in music. He used the music to soothe his mind and nerves after surgery, and the music was one of the few things that kept him sane during the horror of the Clone Wars. When the Rimsoo Seven facility was attacked by Separatist forces, Zan Yant and the rest of the doctors grabbed their go-bags and got ready to evacuate the location and move to a new one. In the chaos of trying to reach his transport, however, Zan dropped the case containing his quetarra. He was forced to remain on the transport, knowing that it would be suicidal for himself and the other to try and recover it. Much to his relief, though, Den Dhur was rushing to the transport just behind him, and managed to recover the quetarra before leaping into the transport. Zan was eternally grateful to the Sullustan, and vowed never to forget him. Zan's happiness was cut short when, just after take-off, the transport was hit by a Separatist missile. The shrapnel that filled the ship penetrated his spinal cord just below the neck, severely damaging his brain and killing him also instantly. It was of little consolation to the members of Rimsoo Seven that Zan had died happy, knowing the quetarra was safe.
