Top 100 Star Wars Characters 80-71

Sorry folks that this part of the list came late, but I have been busy lately in my own personal life. On a second note, I do want to say that I have come back from my short Star Wars Vacation, and that I am back in the bloggers chair once again.
To see the previous lists click here:
and here:

80. Rune Haako
Haako was one of the Neimoidians, along with Nute Gunray, whom were ordered by Sidious to invade Naboo, in order for the Sith Lord to become Chancellor of the Republic. He later on goes to continue the Sith conspiracy, and joins the Separatists along with the Trade Federation. Haako has the unfortunate fate of dying at the hands of Darth Vader, once the war comes to an end. Curiously, we still haven't seen this character show up in the Clone Wars. 
79. Biggs Darklighter
Biggs is one of Luke Skywalker's best friends when the two of them were growing up in Tatooine. Biggs later decides to join the Rebel Alliance, and is part of the squadron of X-Wings that participate in the famous Battle of Yavin. Sadly, Biggs along with most of the fleet, end up dead in the attempt to destroy the first Death Star. 
Sugi was the first bounty hunter introduced in the show who had a conscience and was not amoral, unlike most of the other bounty hunters, who do anything ''as long as they get payed''. This bounty hunter on the other hand, has done some noble causes along the way, like protecting a group of farmers from a raid of pirates in Felucia and rescuing a group of Jedi younglings from being captured by Trandoshan hunters. One of the few honorable bounty hunters left in the galaxy. 
77. Cin Drallig
The first Jedi to appear on this list, Cin Drallig was originally portrayed in Revenge of the Sith by stunt coordinator Nick Gillard. Drallig was the swordmaster who trained the Jedi in lightsaber combat and also was head of security in the Jedi Temple. He sadly dies in the end, by the hands of Darth Vader in the Jedi Temple. 
76.Poggle the Lesser
Poggle the Lesser is the Archduke of Geonosis, responsible for being member of the Techno Union, whom tried twice to have a droid factory in his home planet, but failed twice. He was also responsible for the plans of the Death Star, which would one day be constructed and be used to spread fear and terror across the galaxy. We have yet to see in the Clone Wars, how Poggle manages to be freed from prison in Coruscant, so that he eventually shows up in Revenge of the Sith.  
75. Commander Wolffe
Wolffe is the clone commander assigned to serve Jedi Master Plo Koon. Early in the Clone Wars, he lost his entire command when Plo's flagship, the Triumphant, was destroyed by General Grievous. Wolffe had his unit adopt new clone trooper armor in honor of his dead comrades. Wolffe, along with Cody and Rex, remain as one of the few recognizable clone troopers that are given more depth and story to them. 
74. Captain Tarpals
Tarpals is one of the few Gungans apart from Jar Jar and Boss Nass, whom we are given some insight into. He is patrol chief of the city of Otoh Gunga, and has been forced to suffer several headaches from Jar Jar's clumsy antics. He later goes on in war against the Trade Federation in order to kick them out of Naboo and end the blockade. During the Clone Wars, Tarpals fights valiantly against Grievous, and sacrifices himself in order to save his own people. 
73. Almec
Almec makes up for being one of the interesting villains shown in the Clone Wars. As Prime Minister Almec of Mandalore, he is in favor of Duchess Satine's pacifist and neutral ways at the beginning of the war. However, once the Republic decides to cut its aid to Mandalore, Almec is forced to make a desperate attempt in establishing commerce and trade through the black market. He was imprisoned for his crimes of corruption and children poisoning, and would later become again Prime Minister of Mandalore, acting as a puppet leader to the Sith Lord Darth Maul.
72. Juno Eclipse
One of the very few EU characters who made it into the list, the beautiful Juno Eclipse was once an Imperial officer who was under the command of Darth Vader, and was later the captain of the Rogue Shadow. She accompanied Vader's secret apprentice, Starkiller, in the several missions they took, and with time the two fell in love. The apprentice's sacrifice in order to help the rebels escape the Death Star is what led to the foundation of the Rebel Alliance. Juno ultimately became one of the first officers of the Alliance, and served faithfully in the memory of Galen Marek.
71. Wulff Yularen
Admiral Yularen originally served Anakin Skywalker in the Clone Wars, and was one of the most prestigious officers in the service of the Republic. He continues to serve the army as it transforms into the Empire, and is later assigned into service in the Death Star. He makes a cameo appearance in Episode IV by an unknown actor, and dies once Luke Skywalker blows up the Death Star. Veteran voice actor Tom Kane, who portrays the character, has gone on record to say that while Yularen served the Empire, he was not an evil Imperial Officer himself unlike Tarkin. It goes off to show that not everyone was evil between the ranks of the Empire, contrary to popular perception.
