    Who cracked the IKLO code at age twelve?
    Who cleared Admiral Ackbar of bribe-taking?
    Who cracked Delta Source during the Thrawn Crisis?
    Who risked death to recover a copy of the Caamas Document direct from Imperial databanks?
    Who repaired R2-D2 and unlocked the droid's secret holos of Anakin and Padme?

    Chief of Cryptology Zakarisz Ghent!

    Where would our heros be without him?

    This is a fanfic index for this lovable, if oblivious unsung hero. All stories featuring Ghent as a major element are welcome here!

    Zakarisz Ghent? You mean all this time I thought Ghent was his first name, I was completely wrong? Yikes.

    That's what I get for not reading enough of the EU. Through fanfic I've discovered Ghent is an adorable and genius of a slicer, he's seems to be pretty clueless about life most times.

    I'm all for anything that will give me more fics with him in them to read. :)

    Me, too. Ghent went almost entirely without mention during the whole Yuzzhan Vong war and the NJO series. His creator, Timpthy Zahn, and recently Troy Denning have been the only ones to give him alot of attention. I guess it makes sense, as Ghent couldn't do much to slice bioware technology. He does have some very good scenes in the Dark Nest trilogy, and I'm hoping they'll do something with him in Legacy of the Force.

    But there's acres and acres of space for us fanfic writers to play with him! I can feel a few bunnies lurking on the fringe already.

    Yep, he has a first name. :D I discovered this many months ago when I was doing research for my Ghent fic. The most surprizing thing about him though, that I didn't get from the books, is that he has BLUE hair, and tatoos on his forehead. That wasn't on wookie-pedia back then either.

    I hope it's ok if I post a little Zahn comic correct blue haired Ghent fanart here. [image=http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y59/spiritofeowyn/KasritGhentfanart2.jpg] http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y59/spiritofeowyn/KasritGhentfanart2.jpg

    The 'me thinking he has brown hair' version is in my fic. What color eyes do you think he has?[face_thinking] I don't remember any mention of that.


    I love my cute oblivious slicer man.[face_love]


    He stays scrawny because he forgets to eat, and has general male computer geek metabolism.

    Yay! I'm first on the List!

    Title: Dare to be Oblivious

    SpiritofEowyn, I've indexed your great story!

    You're right, Ghent was born in 'The Saga' era, but there's always timetravel fics. I'm keeping a placeholder just in case.

    Good morning, Slicer Fans!

    If you have Hyperspace at starwars.com, I highly recommend that you take a look at Handoff by Timothy Zahn. The fiction section is indexed by date, so look for it around July 2004.

    Slicer meets Hand meets Karrde... good stuff!

    And for your free use:

    Sized for LiveJournal at 100x100. I have a 50x50 version I am submitting as an icon for TFN, since there isn't any of Ghent already!

    Ghent is the bomb. Plain and simple. I'll start scrawling down ideas for a Ghent 'ficlet one of these days.

    Great, Jade_Pilot!

    I think we need to let the plot bunnies loose on Ghent. Just as long as they don't get inside his gear and start chewing the wires. ;)

    No, it's never too late!

    There's no real official 'winner' or deadline, but I'd like to post a new challenge a week.

    I would never discourage any story on the basis of time! :)
