Reference Book: Star Wars Saga Edition Threats of the Galaxy
Zakarisz Ghent is a legendary slicer and associate of the famous smuggler Talon Karrde. Ghent is extremely intelligent and had a preternatural gift when it came to computers and codes. The first hint of Ghent's technical brilliance came when he cracked a near-impossible Imperial code in two months on his own. Although a genius when it comes to slicing or deciphering codes, Ghent is hopelessly naïve, absent-minded, and disinterested in anything that wasn't programmed in Binary.
Ghent's slicing has proven key during several crucial times in The New Jedi Order Era. His skills helped acquit Admiral Ackbar from false charges of bribery during the Thrawn Crisis. He helped uncover an Imperial Intelligence infiltration of New Republic Intelligence headquarters. After the death of Thrawn, Ghent joined up with New Republic Intelligence, eventually rising to the position of Chief of Cryptography. Finally, Ghent unlocked hidden holograms inside R2-D2, revealing Luke Skywalker's mother to be Padmé Amidala and chronicling the way in which she died.
