- "There are some things far more frightening than death."

Suicide was when an individual deliberately took their own life. This form of death was chosen for many reasons.
For a Death Watch bomber, who, after a failed attempt on bombing a memorial shrine in the presence of Duchess Satine Kryze, he chose to jump off a balcony rather than be questioned by Jedi Master Obi-Wan Kenobi.
Suicide attacks were sometimes used in conflicts as a means of inflicting maximum damage.
The term could sometimes be used figuratively. Lady Carise Sindian believed Ransolm Casterfo's decision to speak on behalf of Leia Organa regarding her investigation into the Amaxine warriors was an act of "political suicide."
