Each Kiva is a representative of one of the five primary practices of worship: fire, water, stone, music, and spirit.

Major decisions are rarely made without first consulting the Council and gaining the approval of the Sou’Kivas.

When one dies, the remaining members are cast out from the community and sentenced to a virtual death in Ryloth’s extreme environment.
 Head Tails  The Basic term used to describe lekku, the two tentacular appendages that are found growing from the rear of a Twi’lek’s head. These head tails serve a number of purposes.

The head tails also serve a ceremonial and sensual role in the dances performed by Twi’lek females

 Kala’uun Starport  This Rylothian starport was under the control of the Shak clan at the height of the New Order. Like all Twi’lek settlements, it was located on the terminator line between dark and light sides of the planet, gaining a measure of warmth from its position. However, due to the crosswinds created as the cold air of the dark side mixes with the hot air on the light side, approaches to the starport needed to be handled with care. This danger was further compounded by the fact that Kala’uun was dug into the heights of a huge spire of rock, part of the formation known as the Lonely Five. A Watcher was in place at all times, to ensure that an oncoming heat storm was spotted before it could do any damage to the Starport. Deep in the bowels of th Starport was a huge cistern, that held all the water needed to maintain the facility.
