    You mention part of the text was taken from a Sanskrit text "Battle of the Trees". You may find it interesting that John Williams used this title for a movement from his Horn Concerto. It was the one movement I found of musical merit, but that's another story.

    Thanks for the kind words, everyone :)

    As for Naberrie, I'm really not sure. Not everything in SW has some obscure ethnic reference point, some are taken from actual names -- for instance, I THINK that George Lucas himself said that the name Anakin was based on his friend's name, Ken Annakin.

    Oh wow, apparently the Marauders from the Ewok movies are from a species called "Sanyassan", very similar to Sanyasi :p
