Habensa was a term in the Argazdan. During the period of the Old Sith Wars and the Kanz Disorders, it translated into Galactic Basic Standard as 'one who sculpts or shapes'. Habensa was used to describe the mysterious alien artisan shaper who created the Slave Pits of Lorrd circa 3670 BBY, towards the end of the Argazdan Redoubt.

By the time of the Galactic Civil War, however, the term had become the analogy for the Basic term architect. Around that time, the historian Dr. Heilan Rotham found inscriptions of the word on nearby Deejo tablets.
