Wookiepedia on Tass Root and Scintil Vine
Read the Original Texts Here, Here and Here !
Tass Root The tass root was a kind of plant native to the planet of Ruusan. When powdered, mixed with the flowers from the scintil vine, and dampened it formed a highly corrosive paste. In 990 BBY, Darovit, a hermit living on Ruusan, used the paste to sabotage the construction of a monument being built in the Valley of the Jedi to honor the Jedi of the Army of Light who sacrificed their lives to destroy the Brotherhood of Darkness.
Scintil Vine The scintil vine was a flowering vine native to the planet of Ruusan, and one of the few to survive the damage done to the planet during the battle there between the Jedi of the Army of Light and the Sith of the Brotherhood of Darkness.At some point, Ruusan's residents discovered that when the vine's flowers were mixed with powdered tass root and dampened, a highly corrosive paste was formed that could destroy rock and metal.
Ruusan Ruusan was a planet in the Mid Rim most famous for the Ruusan campaign, the last stand of the Brotherhood of Darkness under Lord Kaan and the birthplace of Darth Bane's Order of the Sith Lords. The planet lent its name to the Ruusan Reformations enacted after the battle. Ruusan was originally a temperate, pleasant world with rivers and forests. It was inhabited by Ruusanians, Humans, and a strange sentient species known as Bouncers. Ruusan's mineral deposits proved disappointing but it was the only source for the Ruusan crystal. Ruusan had three moons, referred to by locals as the "Three Sisters." Smugglers claimed that at least one of the moons had ruins of an ancient civilization.
What Middle Earth Location Are You?
Your Result: mirkwood you are the suffocating silence of the forest. these woods are ancient, have they been here since the dawn of time? the unexpected crunch of leaves under a heavy boot echo through your woods, and you desperately race to snuff out the sound. no one may disturb your haven. you are the sturdiness of the tree trunks, the impenetrable-ness of the leaves. they block out the sun, shrouding you in an intentional darkness. what are you hiding? something, or someone? let down your walls, hasn't it been enough time? aren't you weary?

Muse Stressors Checklist
Bold the stressors that your muse has experienced! Italicise the stressors that are verse-dependent!
athletic injury | breaking their arm / leg | childhood abuse | child leaving home | conflict in the workplace | death of a child / parent / partner / other close family member / close friend | death threats | dismissal from / loss of job | divorce / breakup | drug / alcohol addiction | earthquake | estrangement from child / parent / partner / other close family member / close friend | excessive paperwork | failure to complete school | falling on an icy sidewalk | fire | flood | foreclosure of mortgage or loan | harassment | homelessness | hurricane | imprisonment | job change | long-term unemployment | major / minor violation of the law | marriage | marital reconciliation | military combat | mortgage / other loan | moving house | physically attacked | poor health of a child / parent / partner / other close family member / close friend | pregnancy | retirement | road traffic accident | robbery | severe personal injury / illness | sexual assault | sexual difficulties | significant change in eating habits | significant change in financial state | significant change in living conditions | significant change in sleeping habits | terrorist attack | threatened with physical violence | trouble with in-laws | unplanned pregnancy / abortion | unsafe working conditions | vandalism | workplace stress
unsafe working conditions | workplace stress | homelessness : While her work in the AgriCorps and especially as a Healer in sickbays and on by war devasted planets ahd not been exactly safe, Ziv had always had the Corps to rely and return to. Obviously after Order 66 the AJedi Order and all its branches are gone despite some explorer-corps-starships still flaoting around in deep space.
severe personal illness : Ziv was born a runt with albinism who wouldn´t had survived on Tynna before the modern age and who still had very slim chances of survival in the modern time, which meant that it was in this case the best case for her beeing adopted into the Jedi Order and given the very best medical care possible in the Galaxy. Still, while Ziv is now a adult, she still is a adult that had grown from the very sickly,fargile child she had been. Accordingly the fact that she had been a very sickly child is something that follows Ziv- she watches her diet, she watches her training, she watchs her condition to never fall back to the sickly sate, but the thought that if she ever makes a mistake she could easily get sick and weak, follows her everyday. In the same manner, Ziv is a alien in a by Humanoids dominated Galaxy- what is just weak sniffles for a human can due to Ziv having a different biology turn ito a full blown pneumonia for the Tynnan in the matter fo a day. Accordingly she has to be not only careful because she is prone to become very sick, but especially because she can become so very differently sick than her usual patients.
estrangement from close friend | failure to complete school : When Ziv had been send to the AgriCorps as a eleven year old, she felt abonded but above anyhing else she had felt as if she had failed to be everythign she had wanted to be since she could think: a Jedi. It is of course not this way, the Service-Corps was important for the life in the galaxy, but Ziv could not shake off the feeling that she was somehow not worth enough to be a jedi-knight. Out of spite she leaned into her work, mastered Consitor sato thanked to her fast knowledge of flora and became a herbal healer. But despite her overcompensating before other people by beeing especially loud and appearing especially arrogant and full of hrself, the feeling still stayed. In the time of the rebellion Ziv would not even refer to herself as a Jedi, as a Botanist yes, as a Healer yes, as a Force-sensetive, but never as part of the order.
significant change in eating habits | significant change in financial state | significant change in sleepig habits: Ziv grew up in the Jedi-Temple, so before Order 66 Ziv could always be sure that she would always be at least fed, financial stable and have a place to return to to sleep. That obviously changed after order 66. In the same manner since Order 66 Ziv is insomniac. SHe had before always been a bad sleeper. That has several reasons: For one the Tynnan has the habit of ignoring her own boundarys as in pushing brutally over those boundarys until it goes into the terraine of harming her own health . Accordingly she pushes her Body to its limits by using her herbal craft as a resource. Which is not exactly healthy to do on a permanent Basis, but Ziv ignores the negatives effects on her body and her occasionally brutal circulatory collapse. Therefor the herbs keep herself permanently awake. When she eventually breaks down she will again use herbs to slow down her metabolism so she can sleep, which will lead to her sometimes sleeping for twenthyfour hours without pause after going through days without sleep. Another stark reason for her Insomnia is that Ziv can´t sleep on starships or starstations since her claustophobia will make her restless. The other reason for Zivs insomnia is the Murakami Orchid bound to her for the Murakami with their highly developted telepathy tries to reach out to Ziv. Now the Orchid is still a sproutling and therefor still the equivalent of a infant. This in combination with Zivs natural “thickheadness” makes it is yet impossible that the two of them could build up a telepathic connection that would include exchanging thoughts. However that does not mean that there is no connection and no exchange between them. The orchid is still highly force-sensetive and would catch the thoughts | emotions of the people around Ziv constantly even with wisps of Precognition and Force-visions. And when Ziv is sleeping and her mind-shield is almost down the Orchid projects this feelings, images, flashes of visions and precognition in Zivs mind to talk to her in their own way. Needless to say Ziv has most of the time not the slightest clue what is going on and it is very frustrating for her that she herself can not build up a connection with the Orchid which makes her feel even more isolated as she thinks she can only take care of the plants outer needs. They send visions, thoughts, emotionsand pictures make Ziv wake up with a certaine thought, a idea, a warning, a sudden understanding of something,the knowledge about what had happned on a complete different location while she was asleep, or the image of someone who is important or whom she is suppose to seek out, or a heavy gutfeeling that guides her, or she expierences confusing deja-vues which she can use to navigate safer through the galaxy under the empires reign. However in most cases those dreams just leave her completly exhausted and Ziv has no idea why she is expierencing them.
Pregnancy | Unplanned Pregnancy: While Thruds and Ullrs Birth is versedependant, the Verse where they are or the fact that they came into zivs life most important is in one of the Sequel Verse: On Telemachus Trace. In this Ziv had gone through the pregnancy and had had her daughters only to be caught up by the crimelord she had gotten her cortosis-vembrace from to be frozen in carbonite and sold as a artpiece. After she is thawned up again, Ziv suffers from amnesia- she knows who she is and her story but the details are gone like the face sof the people she had been close to like her Creche-master. The whole year before she was frozen in carbonite is complety gone, including the fact that she had been pregnant and had had her daughters and left them with a co-worker in Deep Current before going on a short mission. However- Ziv is not a idiot and even if she would not be specialized in midwifery, she is not ignorant enough to not notice the sympthomes her body that had gone through a full term pregnancy, a birth and six months of nursing, is showing: Stretchmarks under her fur, a literal c-section-scar under her fur, backache as a permanent echo from the utterly strained pelvic-base, Phantom-contractions, Phantom-kicks, and the most obvious the swelling of breasts and the fact that she starts lectating either during her work when she is helping in a birth and walking her patient through the stress, is triggered by infant crying or is under extreme stress like caused by nightmares and fractions of memories. However, that she noticed all this sympthomes in herself, but just can not remember having been pregnant let alone her own daughters,is utterly disturbing and devasting and Ziv has no idea how to handle it. She had had children and she can not even remember the feelings of their first kicks. So she hides in work, trying not to think of the child or children that íf they had survived are by now older than her and had lived without ever knowing about her.

* Not exatly the useage of illegal Drugs, but as Ziv had to learn to keep up with people a lot of taller and stronger than her,she permanently puts her body on hyperdriver with her herbs only to force it into a resting mode with other herbs at the end of the day. Since her metabolism is permanently in full blast, as soon as she takes in her calming herbs (mostly Naboo Lavender), she usually flops down like a sack of wet earth for a few hours. Its not exactly a good example of “how to treat yourself and your body with care”.
**As someone Force-Sensetive it is easy for Ziv to betray in Gambling. Hightened Sensesand attention, plus the slightest using of telekinesis is giving her a advantage. Micah Giiett probably starts crying in the Force or laughs hysterically, both is possible.
***Ziv easily gets Spacesick, since she is physically not taking well on beeing away from the natural enviorment of a planet and in the artificial enviorment influences of Spacestations and Starships. She might reacts so sensetive to it, since she is naturally enhancing her sensing of her enviorment with the Force and is therefor instinctive picking up that the enviorment is artificial which makes her body reacting to "the fakeness”. It shows in mild nausea, sleeplessness, restlessness and headaches. Ziv drinks Namana-Petal-Tea and takes in a tincture with Naboo-Lavender to ease her sympthomes.
