The largest region of the galaxy, the Outer Rim is situated between the Mid Rim and the unexplored expanses of the Unknown Regions and Wild Space. Situated far from the Core Worlds, the Outer Rim worlds have a reputation for lawlessness, as the Republic cared little for enforcing its laws in the remote region which, baring for a few exceptions, provided little in the way of trade or resources for the affluent worlds of the Core. Many Outer Rim worlds were occupied by the Empire following the Clone Wars as it sought to expand its war machine, with many of the worst Imperial atrocities occurring here, far from the eyes of the Core Worlds. In the aftermath of the Galactic Civil War, a number of Outer Rim worlds joined the New Republic, although some worlds, like Ryloth, chose independence over joining another galactic government.
Most of Hutt Space is situated in the Outer Rim, with the Hutt Clans and other criminal organizations holding sway on worlds throughout the region. The Mandalore Sector also lays within the Outer Rim.
An agricultural world served as a breadbasket to the Core worlds. Ukio seceded from the Republic and joined the Confederacy of Independent Systems.
- Agri World: Ukio is responsible for feeding many of the city planets in the Core Worlds.
- Dude, Where's My Respect?: The Ukians joined the Confederacy due to the lack of gratitude and compensation from the Core Worlds that they provided food to.
A planet with one barren moon, which was home to a Republic outpost during the Clone Wars.
- Schrödinger's Canon:
- Bird People: The natives of Rishi, the Rishii, are bird-like people who lived on nests on top of the mountains.
- Outlaw Town: In the Old Republic Era, The primary settlement of Rishi was named Raiders Cove, which was a Space Pirate haven. The native Rishii are more or less okay with the situation provided the pirates stay out of their way (not difficult; since the Rishii are bird-people, humans don't often want the parts of the planet they occupy anyway) and true authority rests with the Nova Blade pirates. In addition to its assorted criminals, the planet is playing host to a Cult with galaxy-wide ambitions, who are using the Nova Blades as their proxies.
A small tropical planet with a tiny population of Human settlers located in an isolated region of the Abrion Sector. After the rise of the Galactic Empire, Scarif housed an Imperial military complex that was the center of top-secret research and data storage, one of the projects included the development of the Death Star.
- Deflector Shields: The planet is enveloped in a large planetary shield so that the Empire can control all traffic going to and from Scarif. The shield also blocks large comm signals to prevent data from being sent out from the research facility.
- Nuke 'em: The Death Star fires a single reactor blast on the planet, destroying the military complex and a large chunk of the planet.
- Scenery Dissonance: Scarif's beauty contrasts with the Empire's horrific work being done at their military complex and battle that takes place.
- Scenery Porn: The planet consists of beautiful tropical beaches.
- Single-Biome Planet: Most of Scarif is covered in oceans, with only a few archipelagos and smaller volcanic islands scattered across the surface.
- Tentacled Terror: Blixus can be found on Scarif and are prone to eating unwary beach goers who are not paying enough attention to the water.
An icy mountainous world, it was the main headquarters of the InterGalactic Banking Clan. The Banking Clan had a fortress surrounding their Main Vault in one of the settlements on Scipio. During the Clone Wars, Republic Senator Padmé Amidala (accompanied by Jedi Knight Anakin Skywalker) and Separatist Senator Bec Lawise were sent to investigate possible corruption in the Banking Clan under the new leadership of Senator Rush Clovis. This resulted in the invasion of Scipio by the Republic & the Separatists, and the deaths of Clovis & Lawise during the ordeal as a whole.
- Single-Biome Planet: Much of Scipio is covered in icy hills and mountain ranges.
- Snow Means Death: Lawise and Clovis are Back for the Dead in this story arc.
Tall and thin humanoids, the Muun were widely known across the galaxy as bankers due to their control of the InterGalactic Banking Clan.
- Adaptational Backstory Change: In Legends, their homeworld was Muunilinst. In The Clone Wars and by extension canon, it's Scipio.
- The Greys: Pretty loose example, but they do have the pale grey skin and enlarged skulls.
- Humanoid Aliens: They have the basic human body shape with two arms, two legs, and a head, but are notably taller than the average humanoid, with long lanky limbs and flat noses.
- Individuality Is Illegal: Apparently, nonconformity is hugely frowned upon in Muun society, explaining why every Muun seems to dress in the same drab clothes.
- Lean and Mean: Several feet taller than a normal human, rail-thin and almost always depicted as some sort of greedy antagonist.
- Off-Model: Whether Muuns have noses seems to vary from installment to installment, with the films having almost flat slabs, and The Clone Wars instead giving them comically large (and simple to animate) schnozes.
- Planet of Hats: The Muun are simply bankers to much of the galaxy.
- Schrödinger's Canon: In Legends, Muuns have three hearts.
- Muuns were also ardent vegetarians, the only exception being Darth Plagueis.
InterGalactic Banking Clan
A small, volcanic planet in the Outer Rim of the galaxy, and the final stronghold for the Confederacy of Independent Systems. Several years after the conclusion of the Clone Wars, Darth Vader established his castle on Mustafar above a nexus of Dark Side energy. It is home to a minuscule population who make their living mining the various materials that can be found on the planet.
- Adaptation Deviation: The backstory for how Mustafar became a volcanic planet has changed between continuities. In the Legends continuity, it was dangerously close to two massive gas planets, the gravitational pull of the larger planets tearing the inside apart, creating the hostile Death World the system is known for, which is actually happening with Jupiter's moon Io. In Canon, the Mustafarian cataclysm is not a result of gravitational tug-of-war, but Lady Corvax attempting to bring back her dead husband using a mystical Mustafarian artifact called the Bright Star. With the destruction of the Bright Star at the end of Vader Immortal, however, Mustafar will one day return to its former glory many years from then.
- However, it seems some canon sources also use the Legends explanation.
- The Rise of Skywalker Visual Dictionary reconciles the two explanations by stating that the use of the Bright Star moved Mustafar into it's current, deadly orbit.
- Conveniently Close Planet: With a gas giant that is so close that Mustafar could be mistaken for a moon.
- Death World: A planet so hot that it is molten, where metal structures need a force field to even stay up, and where one bad fall means you're probably dead. Non-native species, when not inside a force field, need to wear breathing masks to filter out the ash in the air, and the native sentient species is seen wearing breathing masks. However, Mustafar was much more lush and hospitable thousands of years before the films, and with the destruction of the Bright Star, it's slightly more habitable by the time of The Rise of Skywalker.
- Lethal Lava Land: In fact, it's so lethal (and so lava) that it even manages to (partially) avert the Convection Schmonvection rule!
- Mordor: Mustafar is very reminiscent of Mordor, being a Lethal Lava Land covered in black rock and sand, with a sky scorched a hellish red colour. It's said to be strong in the Dark Side of the Force and is used as a base by the Separatist leaders late in the Clone Wars. Fittingly, it serves as the setting of the climax of Revenge of the Sith; it is where Anakin Force-chokes Padmé at the height of his FaceHeel Turn, causing the injuries that contribute to her death, and where Obi-Wan and Anakin have their epic duel, ending with Anakin being horrifically burned and mutilated; afterwards, he receives his iconic armour and mask to save him, thus completing his transformation into Darth Vader. During the era of the Empire, Vader constructs a castle on Mustafar that looks suspiciously like Barad-dur and meets subordinates there. It's also where captured Jedi are brought for interrogation and execution.
- Single-Biome Planet: All of Mustafar is a lava-covered wasteland. However, it wasn't like this thousands of years before the Clone Wars. With the destruction of the Bright Star, the artifact that turned Mustafar into a Lethal Lava Land, it could one day turn back into a forest/jungle world. By the time of The Rise of Skywalker, Mustafar has become slightly more hospitable, with at least one forest known as the Corvax Fen returning near the area around Vader's castle.
Species: Southern Mustafarian
The leader of a clan of Mustafarian's several years after the end of the Clone Wars. He attempted to halt the construction of Darth Vader's castle due to the disruption its construction and the Dark Side experiments conducted within were having on Mustafar's ecosystem.
- Character Death: Perishes in his clan's final assault on Vader's castle when the region surrounding it is flooded by lava created by an explosion of Dark Side energy.
- Hero Antagonist: Poor Kkkt is trying to stop Darth Vader in the Dark Lord's own comic series. No points for guessing how that turns out for him.
- Mind over Matter: He is Force-sensitive and displays some skill with telekinesis, utilizing it to protect himself and members of his clan from lava sprouts caused by the Dark Side energy being unleashed by Vader and Momin's experiments.
- Staff of Authority: Carries a staff with him that presumably marks his status as the leader of his clan.
- Unknown Rival: Vader has no clue that Kkkt exists and has been directing the attacks against his castle's construction. Kkkt perishes before ever seeing Vader in person.
On the eve of the Galactic Civil War, Batonn housed a rebel insurgency. The Empire led a campaign there to eliminate the insurgents, under the command of Admiral Thrawn and the Seventh Fleet. However, when attempting to evacuate her parents from the planned path of the campaign, Governor Arihnda Pryce murdered ISB Agent Gudry when he threatened them. To cover up the murder, Pryce secretly allowed an insurgent bomb to go off, causing heavy civilian casualties that ended up outnumbering that of the rebels'.
- It's Pronounced "Tro-PAY": In the only time its name is said onscreen, it is pronounced as "buh-tone" by Thrawn (and considering Thrawn would later pronounce "Syndulla" as putting more emphasis on "Syn-" instead of "Du-", it may be different), but fans and supporting material usually pronounce it like "baton".
- Meaningful Name:
- Maybe. When Thrawn first debuts back into canon and Batonn is brought up, he's succeeding Vader as the Big Bad of Rebels. Vader is handing off the baton to Thrawn.
Talmoor and Elaiyne Pryce
A stormy and mountainous planet which served as a research base for the construction of the Death Star
- Perpetual Storm: This planet is always stormy.
A watery world also known as Mon Calamari or Dac, Mon Cala is the homeworld of two sentient species — the Mon Calamari and the Quarren. It is ruled by a Mon Calamari monarchy with support from a mixed council of Mon Calamari and Quarren. While the two species have had numerous clashes over cultural differences, they have coexisted relatively peacefully. The two species did have a brief war during the Clone Wars during a Succession Crisis, and the world was later subjected to heavy exploitation and occupation by the Galactic Empire. The Mon Calamari became one of the key species of the Rebel Alliance, contributing numerous warships and personnel to the war effort.
- Adaptational Heroism: In Legends, the divide between the Mon Calamari and Quarren was much more violent and historical. However, The Clone Wars establishes that while the two races disagreed a lot on some political matters, they were normally civil about it and got along peacefully. It only got so bad in the Clone Wars because Riff Tamson inflamed tensions during a Succession Crisis. In the end, the Quarren Isolation League, under the leadership of Nossor Ri, turned against the Separatists after learning they were tricked. However, with both superpowers each having their own Quarren representative (Tundra Dowmeia for the Republic and Tikkes for the Separatists), there were probably still divisions among the Quarren.
- Binary Suns: Mon Cala has two stars in its system.
- Cthulhumanoid: The Quarren.
- Fish People: Both the Mon Calamari and the Quarren.
- The Mon Calamari look like humanoid frogs, with high-domed heads, webbed hands and large, goggle-like eyes.
- The Quarren resemble squid, and can even shoot out clouds of ink as a defensive measure.
- Heinz Hybrid: It's actually possible to have a Mon Calamari/Quarren hybrid. Look at Jom Jarusch.note
- Schrödinger's Canon: Legends All There in the Manual states that Mon Cala contributed to the Republic's war effort by giving them special metal ore for the armor plating of their cruisers. Vice versa, some Quarren loyal to Tikkes did the same for the Separatists.
- Single-Biome Planet: Mon Cala was completely covered by tropical, world-spanning oceans.
- Succession Crisis: During the Clone Wars, King Yos Kolina was murdered. He had kept good relations between the Mon Calamari and the Quarren, but the Separatists, who had secretly arranged his murder, sent Commander Riff Tamson to inflame tensions between the two species, which led to a Civil War between the two. The crisis ended when the Quarren turned on the Separatists after they realized they had been tricked and that Tamson was behind the murder of King Kolina and was planning on taking the throne of Mon Cala.
- Underwater City: The Mon Calamari and Quarren both live in underwater cities. The few island archipelagoes that exist feature very dangerous animals and plants that make any land habitation dangerous.
Species: Mon Calamari
Heir to the throne of Mon Cala after the death of his father, King Yos Kolina. He ascended to the throne after helping stop a Separatist plot to pit the Mon Calamari and Quarren against each other in a civil war. Around one year after the rise of the Empire, Lee-Char led a rebellion against it, which was ultimately defeated and resulted in the king's imprisonment in an ultra-security prison on Strokill Prime.
- All-Loving Hero: Lee-Char is a compassionate young man who wants to be a good king for both the Mon Calamari and Quarren.
- Ambiguous Situation: Rebel Files states that the leader of the Mon Cala rebels is someone named Faa-Char. It is unknown if this is a regular naming convention in Mon Calamari or if Faa-Char is related to Lee-Char.
- And I Must Scream: He spent nearly two decades on life support in Strokill Prime's prison, with no way to move or contact the outside world while being regularly interrogated by the Empire. That he is still sane when Leia and the others find him is amazing.
- Asskicking Equals Authority: Prince Lee-Char's bravery and leadership during the battle to reclaim Mon Cala are what inspire the people, Mon Calamari and Quarren alike, to accept him as their king.
- Awesome Moment of Crowning: He's crowned King of the Mon Cala seas at the end of the trilogy, and it was Nossor Ri, who earlier claimed that he was unfit to rule, who put the crown on his head.
- Beware the Nice Ones: Lee-Char is a genuinely kind-hearted individual and All-Loving Hero, but also proves to not be a dangerous when pushed. In fact, at the final battle of the Mon Calamari, it was him who killed Tamson.
- Big Good Wannabe: His role in The Burning Seas: He thinks he's assembling a Resistance that will topple the Empire, but his Jedi general, Ferren Barr, is using a combination of Jedi Mind Trick and Exact Words to play him like a fiddle. Barr's real intent was to turn himself, Lee-Char, and an unspecified number of other planetary leaders into inspirational martyrs for the future Rebellion that does beat the Empire. The Empire quashes the uprising with relative ease, and Lee-Char is broken by a "Reason You Suck" Speech from Vader.
- Blue Is Heroic: Wears a blue prince suit and is an All-Loving Hero dedicated to his people.
- Brainwashed: A year after the Empire rose to power, Lee-Char came under the influence of rogue Jedi Padawan Ferren Barr, who was exceptionally gifted with Jedi mind tricks due to being an Iktotchi. Barr convinced Lee-Char that he could save the galaxy by starting a rebellion against the Empire.Lee-Char: The Mon Calamari are central to the destruction of the Empire, and it will not happen without me. I know this to be true.Darth Vader: A twitch of my finger could end you forever. You are central to nothing. You do not matter. You have been lied to.
- Character Development: Goes from a naive prince with little experience and confidence to a more self-assured, wise king who can make better decisions.
- A Child Shall Lead Them: Initially deconstructed, as the Quarren refuse to acknowledge him as King of Mon Cala following the assassination of his father because of his young age and lack of experience, and without the Quarren's disapproval, he's not that confident in his leadership abilities. But once he carries his weight and leads both of his people to liberate the planet from the Separatists, this is reconstructed in the end and he is accepted by both races.
- Distressed Dude: At some point during the Empire's reign, Lee-Char was captured and imprisoned. At some point during his incarceration, he ended up needing to be kept on life support while in prison.
- Final Speech: Leia, Han, Luke, and Chewie help him record a final speech to his people before he dies in order to inspire them to join the Rebellion.Lee-Char: I am Lee-Char of Mon Cala, and I am dying. But we are all dying. The question becomes how do we wish to live the time we have? What kind of life do we wish to leave for those who follow us? I have been an absent king, and I am ashamed. I wish I could have been with you through this Imperial hell. I was with you in my heart. I have never forgotten you. The fleet in Mon Cala's pride. Mon Cala knows the Empire's evil. Their atrocities are burned on our flesh. We know what wrongs they have done... but we can only guess at the horrors they will do next. If we are with them when they do so, all our pride will curdle to shame. It cannot be so... goodbye, my people.
- Fish People: He's a Mon Calamari.
- The Good King: Not at the beginning, as he wasn't crowned, but Lee-Char is genuine in his desire to help his people, either as Mon Calamari or Quarren.
- Innocent Blue Eyes: He has blue eyes to match his compassion and kindness.
- Missing Mom: There is no mention on what happened to his mother.
- My Greatest Failure: Rebelling against the Empire, which resulted in his imprisonment and inability to be there for his homeworld under the Empire's tyranny. Lee-Char sadly notes how arrogant he was to think he could save the galaxy from the Empire, seemingly never having realized how Ferren Barr manipulated him with the Force.
- Nice Guy: It's one of the things that make him perfect for being the next king.
- The Power of Friendship: It was his determination to protect all people of Mon Cala, combined with Tamson's repeated Kick the Dog moments that convinced Nossor Ri and the Quarren that he's the most suitable King for the planet.
- Royals Who Actually Do Something:
- Throughout the Mon Calamari arc he made one desperate attempt after another to protect his people and their planet, and despite most of them failing, he never gave up until he finally succeeded.
- Under the Empire he hoped that Mon Cala's example of resistance would inspire the galaxy to overthrow the Empire and restore the Republic. Unfortunately, Jedi Padawan Ferren Barr used his considerable psychic powers to force Lee-Char along this path in a manner that resulted in the king's imprisonment and Mon Cala's subjugation.
- Reasonable Authority Figure: He's kind, understanding, and seeks wisdom so he can be decisive. All he needs is being assertive.
- Schrödinger's Canon: His father was the 82nd King of Mon Cala, so that would mean that Lee-Char is the 83rd King of Mon Cala.
- Spared by the Adaptation: According to the Legends Star Wars Roleplaying Game, he was killed shortly after the Empire rose to power, dying while defending Mon Cala from Imperial subjugation. Star Wars (Marvel 2015) shows that he's still alive after the Battle of Yavin, but a prisoner of the Empire and being kept on life-support. He is killed by Stormtroopers not long after his Final Speech to his people.
- Took a Level in Badass: In his debut episode he couldn't even fire a blaster straight. Two episodes later he led the final battle against Tamson's droids, and killed Tamson himself.
- Tuckerization: His name is "Charlie", just with the syllables in a different order. It's not known if his name is a reference to Lucasfilm staff or a specific historical figure.
- Unwitting Pawn: To Jedi Padawan Ferren Barr, who used mind tricks to convince Lee-Char he was going to save the galaxy from the Empire. Ultimately, Barr was just concerned with inspiring people to fight the Empire for revenge and planned on convincing many world leaders that they were the saviors the galaxy needed while planning to abandon them once the fighting started, like he did to Lee-Char.
- Warrior Prince: Subverted. While he did lead all of the major battles on the Mon Calamari side, his self-admitted and lampshaded inexperience was a huge handicap throughout his arc.
- The Wise Prince: Discounting his initial lack of experience as a warrior, he fits to a T: he's honorable and kind, and the well-being of his people is always his concern.
- You Killed My Father: Towards Riff Tamson. A bit downplayed, however, since Lee-Char's main concern always remained saving his people, and he was completely calm and level-headed even when he claimed that he was sure about Tamson's guiltiness.
Species: Mon Calamari
A descendent of King Lee-Char and ruler of Mon Cala during the war between the Resistance and First Order.
General Nossor Ri
Chieftain of the Quarren during the Clone Wars. He had been a friend and advisor of King Yos Kolina, but felt that his son Lee-Char was not ready to take the throne and believed that the time had come for the Quarren to lead Mon Cala. However, he soon realized his mistake in siding with the Separatists against Lee-Char and personally crowned him king after helping to defeat Riff Tamson.
- Anti-Villain: In The Clone Wars, he wants what is best for his people and the Mon Calamari, and is disgusted at Riff Tamson's treatment of the Mon Calamari soldiers and civilians who are captured.
- Back for the Dead: After reappearing in Allegiance, he sacrifices himself in the fourth issue to atone for his subordinate Chadkol Gee's treacherous deal with the First Order, and allow the Resistance to escape with Mon Calamari warships.
- Everyone Has Standards: Upon learning that Chadkol Gee had attempted to assassinate Leia and her routine with a bomb and contacted the First Order, Nossor is aghast and furious. He had already succeeded in getting Leia and the others kicked off of Mon Cala and despite being unwilling to fight he despises the First Order, making his advisor's actions unnecessary and treasonous.
- HeelFace Turn: After seeing how the Separatists were treating the Mon Calamari and that Riff was planning to take the throne for himself, Nossor ordered his men to turn on the Separatists at Lee-Char's execution. He then led them in saving Lee-Char and freeing the Republic prisoners before uniting with the Mon Calamari to throw the Separatists off Mon Cala.
- Mistreatment-Induced Betrayal: He not only betrayed Riff and the Separatists because of how they treated him and the Quarren, but because of how they treated the captured Mon Calamari.
- Pet the Dog: Despite disparaging Lee-Char's fitness to rule, he does take a moment to offer his condolences to the prince for his father's death.
- The Bus Came Back: He returns in Allegiance, having become a general serving the most recent Mon Cala king, and (initially) opposing giving war matériel to General Leia Organa's Resistance due to his isolationist stance as a result of Mon Cala's suffering during the Imperial era.
- Well-Intentioned Extremist: He sincerely believed that Lee-Char was not suited to become king, being too young and inexperienced, especially during a time when the galaxy was at war. He changed his mind after seeing how Lee-Char acted during the war.
Grand Admiral Urtya
Species: Mon Calamari
Homeworld: Mon Cala
An old friend of Gial Ackbar and Raddus, Urtya was the Grand Admiral of the Mon Cala Mercantile Fleet. Under the rule of the Empire, he served as the Regent of Mon Cala, Dual Protector of the Two People, and Warden of the King in exile.
- Armor-Piercing Question: When refusing to join the Rebellion due to fearing Imperial reprisals against his homeworld, Urtya asks Leia if she would have still joined the Rebellion if she knew what the consequences for Alderaan would be. Notably, she has no answer for this.
- Authority in Name Only: While he does control the merchant fleet, the rest of his political titles are essentially useless and he is only a figurehead for the Moff in control of Mon Cala.
- The Quisling: A highly reluctant one. After the Empire conquered Mon Cala, Urtya stayed to lead his people while Ackbar and Raddus left to fight. When Leia and Ackbar appeal to him to take the Mercantile Fleet and join the Rebellion after the destruction of the first Death Star, he sadly refuses as he believes that the Empire would destroy Mon Cala if he did so.
- Redemption Equals Death: After Leia records Lee-Char's final message and gives it to Urtya, he decides to broadcast the message planet-wide to spark a Mon Calamari uprising. This gets him killed when the Empire fires on his headquarters.
- Try to Fit THAT on a Business Card!: Has a long list of titles which C-3PO tries to list, but Urtya cuts him off before he finishes since he despises them as they are essentially meaningless.
An advisor of Nossor Ri during the conflict between the Resistance and First Order. He is an isolationist willing to do anything to ensure Mon Cala remains neutral during the war.
- Even Evil Has Loved Ones: He is last seen holding his family close as the First Order begins its occupation of Mon Cala.
- Freudian Excuse: His family was tortured and killed during the Imperial occupation. He blames Leia and the Rebellion for drawing Mon Cala into the war against the Empire and causing their deaths.
- Jerkass Has a Point: He may be a murderous bastard, but he is correct in how Mon Cala was devastated during the war against the Empire, suffering multiple invasions that killed millions and left the survivors scarred by their experiences. Siding openly with the Resistance would just bring more destruction to their world.
- Too Dumb to Live: By informing the First Order of Leia's presence on Mon Cala, a massive First Order fleet led by General Hux soon arrives and occupies the planet while Leia escapes with the planet's fleet, which was no match by itself for the invasion force.

A mysterious rocky and hellish wasteland with a hollow world beneath the surface. Thousands of years ago, the Sith Empire had established a Sith Temple housing a kyber crystal-powered superweapon in the underworld, the construction being led by a Sith Lord only known as "The Presence". However, the Jedi Order launched an assault to destroy the Sith at Malachor, only for the superweapon to activate and kill all participants present, becoming known as the Scourge of Malachor. At some point, the Presence put her life force into a Sith holocron and was put into the Sith Temple.
- After the End: The superweapon petrified everything in its vicinity.
- Canon Immigrant: Malachor originally appeared in Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lords.
- Famed in Story: The Jedi and Sith would tell stories to their future generations about the Scourge of Malachor, and it can be used as a substitute of "hell" in cursing.
- Ghost Planet: Just like Korriban, it's a creepy, long-abandoned planet strong in the Dark Side that was formerly home to the Sith.
- Godzilla Threshold: The Jedi Order completely banned travel to Malachor after the Scourge. However, years after Order 66, when Yoda contacts Ezra, he tells him to go to Malachor, but is unable to/doesn't tell him the reasoning behind this choice.
- Hollow World: The "starry sky" is even just a bunch of holes on the surface. It's an interesting variation, though, being more similar to a cave system (dark and layered) than the typical depiction of a Hollow World.
- Red and Black and Evil All Over: Well, the Sith established it as one of their bases. What did you expect?
- Schrödinger's Canon:
- Perpetual Storm: The planet was covered in endless storms after its destruction in the Mandalorian Wars.
- Shattered World: In KOTOR II, the planet was a cracked and twisted wasteland. The reason it became this way was due to Mandalorian Wars, where the Jedi Exile was ultimately left with no other option but to drop a superweapon onto the planet, thus ending the war once and for all.
- Sickly Green Glow: What's left of Malachor's tortured surface is covered in deep fissures that radiate a baleful green light. Getting too close to any of them usually releases an unhealthy gas cloud similar to triggering a gas mine; the vapors themselves are sickly green as well.
- The existence of other planets in the system (or possibly moons, it's never made clear). In Legends, we know of Malachor II and III, implying there's also an I and IV.
- The ancient petrified corpses of the participants were inspired by the ancient corpses at Pompeii after the eruption of Mount Vesuvius.
- Touching the slab of rock with "the old tongue" written all over it will cause the ground beneath you to drop you into the underworld, which you'll survive if you have a Jet Pack or you're a Force-user. Falling into the underworld is inspired by many depictions of this in mythology.
- Spared by the Adaptation: If Malachor is specifically based on Malachor V, it got off easy compared to its Legends counterpart. In Legends, not only was it turned into a Shattered World with Perpetual Storms as a result of a different superweapon, it was eventually destroyed for good by the same weapon. And this happened four-thousand years prior to when Rebels would have taken place.
- Taken for Granite: Get caught in the superweapon's blast and you'll be petrified, your pose forever frozen in time.
A desert planet home to the decadent casino city Canto Bight, known as a playground for the super-rich and a haven for high-class criminals.
- The Casino: Canto Bight is a casino city.
- Crapsaccharine World: It is a glamorous looking city. However, it's very popular with the ultra-rich, most of who earned their wealth selling weapons to both sides, and some of the planet's wealth is generated through animal abuse and child slave labor.
- Dirty Cop: Corruption is rampant with the Canto Bight Police Department. Every law and regulation are negotiable depending on the wealth of the person. The officers could turn a blind eye to most crime as long as it does not disrupt the relaxing atmosphere of the city.
- Fantasy Counterpart Culture: For Monte Carlo, as a luxurious and glamorous destination for all sorts of rich people (including arms dealers) with plenty of casinos to sink money in.
- Meaningful Name: The Chinese city of Guangzhou, traditionally Romanized as Canton, is a major entrepôt and used to be a major terminus in the Silk Road, befitting how Canto Bight is a gathering of the wealthy.
- War for Fun and Profit: The wealth of Canto Bight's casinos comes from weapons trade. And said weapons are sold to both the First Order and the Resistance.
- Wretched Hive: Double Subverted with Canto Bight. Rose hypes it up as home to some of the worst people in the galaxy to Finn, but when they arrive, it's shown to be glitzy and glamorous, with the latter falling in love with it. However, it's soon revealed to him and the audience that it's just home to a different type of scum and villainy — flamboyantly rich war profiteers.
A young orphan stable-hand in the fathier stables who encounters Rose and Finn during their mission to the world.
- All There in the Manual: His name is only given in The Last Jedi Visual Dictionary.
- Chekhov's Gunman: After helping Finn and Rose escape with the fathiers, Temiri appears again at the end of the film, hearing his fellow stablehand tell stories of Luke Skywalker and wearing Rose's Resistance ring, indicating that not all hope is lost in the galaxy. And in one of the last shots in the film, he pulls his broom to his hand with the Force, with the moon shining on the handle evoking imagery of a lightsaber.
- Mind over Matter: Has at least some limited ability to move objects with the Force.
- Parental Abandonment: He is one of many street urchins in Canto Bight who was abandoned by their gambler parents after they lost all their money.
- Tuckerization: His name is a corruption of his actor's name.
Countess Alissyndrex delga Cantonica Provincion
One of the nobles who nominally rules Canto Bight and the contested leader of its criminal underworld.
- Affably Evil: She is genuinely polite with Lexo Sooger and is implied to actually care if he rescues his adopted daughter. The Countess also offers to find Lula's real parents if they want, despite not needing to.
- Blatant Lies: Insists that Big Sturg Ganna is one of her closest friends and allies, while he is actually her biggest rival and closing in on toppling her from the top of Canto Bight's power structure.
- Happily Married: Her husband has not been seen in public for some time. ''Hear Nothing, See Nothing, Say Nothing" suggests that he is very ill, and part of the reason the Countess is struggling to hold onto power in Canto Bight is because she has spent a fortune paying for his medical care.
- A Lighter Shade of Black: While the Countess is definitely not a saint, in comparison to Big Sturg Ganna she is nowhere near as evil. The two of them are also almost complete opposites in terms of personality.
- Playing Both Sides: Sells weapons to both the Resistance and First Order. In exchange for helping Lexo Sooger rescue his daughter from Sturg Ganna, the Countess has him kill a rival threatening her business.
Big Sturg Ganna
An amphibious gangster who sits on Canto Bight's city council.
- Amoral Attorney: Earlier in his life he worked as a lawyer before transitioning into politics.
- Corrupt Politician: Uses his position on the city council to advance his criminal interests.
- Evil Cannot Comprehend Good: He is utterly baffled as to why Lexo Sooger would risk his life to rescue his adopted human daughter Lula.
- Faux Affably Evil: His attempts to seem reasonable and good-natured come off as blatantly manipulative and false.
- No-Sell: Lexo Sooger's pheromones do not work on Ganna due to his species biology.
- Would Hurt a Child: Kidnaps Lula, the adopted daughter of Lexo Sooger, to force the masseuse to become one of his spies under the threat of killing her. Ganna intends to keep her as a slave forever even if Lexo complies.
Baron Yasto Attsmun
A tyrannical baron who rules over the planet Listehol. He frequently visits Canto Bight to spend time on his luxury yacht, the Undisputed Victor.
- Aristocrats Are Evil: Is a tyrannical noble on his homeworld.
- Electronic Eye: His left eye was replaced by a cybernetic one for unknown reasons.
- Even Evil Has Standards: Has nothing but contempt for the arrogant arms dealer Jerdon Bly, who openly brags about selling the same weapons to both the Resistance and First Order. When Bly is murdered on his yacht during a party, Attsmun is more upset someone had the audacity to do it on his yacht than Bly being dead.
An abusive Cloddogran who worked in Canto Bight and owned several slaves on the planet's fathier stables.
- Ascended Extra: Tomder has a bigger role in the Canto Bight story Hear nothing, See nothing, Say nothing, where he's revealed to have been a brief owner of the Dor-Namethian Lexo Sooger's adopted daughter, Lula, before he fired her.
- Establishing Character Moment: Being a background character, he doesn't play a big role in the film, but when we first see him, he's viciously abusing the captive fathiers with an electro-whip. Later on, near the end of the film, when he sees the children slaves are simply relaxing and having fun together, the guy roars in frustration and immediately sends them back to work.
- Facial Horror: Cloddograns are said to have nose tendrils, but Tomder's nose was quite plague-ridden, to the point Lexo Sooger considered the infection would eventually take all over his face, and, even the star system.
- Gonk: Cloddograns are hardly a pretty species but Tomder looks completely hideous. Not helped by his grossly-infected nose and poor hygiene habits.
- Humanoid Alien: He's a Cloddogran.
- Jerkass: He doesn't think much of his slaves.
- Karma Houdini: Even after the fathier stampede which caused major damage to the city, Tomder still works at the place and gets to keep the slaves he owns. On the other hand, one of his slaves is clearly Force-sensitive, which may eventually come to bite Tomder in the ass really hard much later
- Mean Boss: He's downright cruel and demeaning to the slaves he owns.
- Pet the Dog: When Lexo was using his pheromones to interrogate Tomder for leads on Lula's disappearance, Tomder mentions using credits he was bribed with to finally purchase new gloves for the kids so their hands don't get hurt working in the stables. Lexo is stunned by this, noting that there is no way that Tomder could by lying due to the amount of pheromones he is using and that he actually cares somewhere deep down for the stableworker's wellbeing.
- Pig Man: Cloddograns are very porcine-like in appearance, having a particularly strong ressemblance to boars or peccaries.
- Vertebrate with Extra Limbs: Cloddograns have four arms and two legs.
- Would Hurt a Child: Has no problem whatsoever with owning children as slaves and being an atrocious boss over them.
Species: Dor Namethian
A Dor Namethian male who worked as a masseur at Zord's spa and bathhouse, Sooger had an adopted human daughter named Lula.
- Ascended Extra: His scenes were ultimately cut from the film, but Lexo is the main character of Hear nothing, See nothing, Say nothing where he attempts to rescue Lula from Big Sturg Ganna.
- Adult Fear: Having your daughter held hostage by a ruthless gangster is not a pretty thought.
- Bizarre Alien Biology: Dor Namethians are able to expel calming pheromones from their hands, a trick which Lexo uses on Tomder to give him the whereabouts of Lula.
- Canon Immigrant: Possibly. The name of his species, Dor Namethian, hints at the possible existence in canon of Dor Nameth, a planet from Legends located in the Bright Jewel sector of the Mid Rim. In addition, Lexo's design seems to be inspired by that of Brangus Glee, a similar long-necked alien with equally long arms and spindly fingers from Legends who hailed from Dor Nameth. Thus, it is all but confirmed that Lexo and his fellow Dor Namethians are canonized versions of Glee and his species.
- Creepily Long Arms:Lexo's long, lanky arms may be a bit unsettling, but he's a decent person.
- Creepy Long Fingers: His fingers allowed him to unleash calming doses of pheromones.
- Game Face: Dor Namethians can unroll their shoulders and stretch their spines to appear taller, looking more intimidating in the process. Lexo uses this to frighten Tomder at some point.
- Good Parents: He greatly cares for his adopted daughter.
- Humanoid Alien: He's a Dor Namethian.
- Interspecies Adoption: Lexo adopted Lula, a human girl, and raised her as his own daughter.
- Long Neck: Dor Namethians have rather elongated necks, albeit not as those of Quermians and Kaminoans.
- Papa Wolf: Lexo will go to great lengths for his adopted daughter.
Dodibin, Thodibin and Wodibin
A trio of male Suerton siblings who were notorious gamblers in Canto Bight collectively known as "The Lucky Three". Their names were often shortened to Dodi, Thodi and Wodi.
- Ascended Extra: They are major characters in the Canto Bight story The Ride, where they spend a night gambling with Kaljach Sonmi.
- Bilingual Bonus: As stated on Meaningful Name below, "Suerton" is adapted from "Suerte", the spanish word for "Luck".
- The Cameo: Wodibin, a short being whose name begins with W, is played by recurring franchise actor Warwick Davis.
- Lizard Folk: Suerton are short, reptilian beings with a pair of blunt, stubby projections on their heads.
- Maybe Magic, Maybe Mundane: Suerton had the ability to subconsciously affect probability. Wether this is the result of some sort of connection to The Force or not is still unknown.
- Meaningful Name: The name of their species, "Suerton", is likely taken from "Suerte", the spanish word for Luck. Fittingly enough, members of the species are said to be extremely lucky at nearly every activity they partake in, and the three brothers were no exception, which led people to label them as "The Lucky Three".
- Perpetual Smiler: They all boast wide grins of sheer happiness on their faces, Thodi being the most prominent.
- The Reptilians: Suerton are short lizard-like Humanoid Aliens.
- Spell My Name with an "S": The Topps cards misspell Thodi's name as "Thadibin".
- Terrible Trio: The three brothers were considered criminals and were closely monitored by the authorities of Canto Bight. This is ultimately averted, however, as they seemed completely devoid of malice and only cared more about having fun than winning bets.
A male Abednedo who made a fortune selling driftwood sculptures.
- The Cameo: Joseph Gordon-Levitt voices him.
- Humanoid Alien: He's an Abednedo.
- Non-Standard Character Design: Unlike other members of his species, his eyes are bigger and almost cartoony-looking. The Visual Dictionary for the film says he has surgical implants on his eyes due to his failing eyesight.
- Shout-Out: Slowen Lo is a reference to the song "Slow and Low" by Beastie Boys.
- Unwitting Instigator of Doom: He is such a busybody that he reports Finn and Rose for parking their ship on the Canto Bight beach and goes as far as going with the police to the Canto Casino to identify them. By getting them arrested before they could reach the Master Codebreaker, he more than likely doomed their plan to disable the hyperspace tracking system on the Supremacy. That would be bad enough, but by getting them in the same cell as the duplicitous DJ, he also doomed Leia and Holdo's plan and nearly got the Resistance wiped out of existence. Plus getting the casino to whose shopaholic patrons he presumably owes his livelihood trashed by a stampeding herd of escaping fathiers.
Parallela and Rhomby Grammus
Twin sisters and performance artists from an unknown species who claim to come from another dimension.
- Coordinated Clothes: They coordinate their clothes to fit together as complementary pieces.
- Creepy Twins: Their demeanor and mysterious past causes most beings to give them a wide berth, assuming them to be dangerous beings.
- Dark Is Not Evil: They look scary and wear dark clothing, which combined with their reputation make them feared among the servants of Canto Bight. As it turns out, their primary joy comes from messing with powerful beings who abuse others while helping out those less well off.
- The Gadfly: Most of what they do seems quite random and without purpose. Those actions tend to add up to entertaining pranks that punish or embarrass those who deserve it.
- Meaningful Name: Their names are references to geometric shapes.
- Obfuscating Stupidity: They acknowledge themselves as playing fools, if only to confuse other beings.
A beautiful aquatic world with many islands, Sesid was a popular tourist destination. During the reign of the Galactic Empire, pharmaceutical research bases were established on Sesid away from the island resorts that were protected by several garrisons of occupying Stormtroopers, inciting the native Draedan's to establish a resistance movement.
An aquatic reptilian species native to Sesid.
- Massive Numbered Siblings: Draedan families are extremely large, numbering several dozen siblings at least.Draedan: Let me tell you something about Draedans, Princess. I'm one of eighteen brothers and twenty-two sisterswhich makes mine a shamefully small family. I have more cousins than I can count in every town within five hundred kilometers of here.
- The Reptilians: One of many reptilian species in the Star Wars universe, although they are more aquatic based than most other known reptilian species in the galaxy.
The leader of the Draedan resistance against the Galactic Empire and captain of the submarine Daggadol.
- Big Damn Heroes: The Daggadol arrives just in time to save Leia and her team from being captured by the Empire.
- Large and in Charge: Leia notes he stands at least a head taller than the rest of his crew, who are all large Draedan's themselves.
- Noble Bigot: He may be a heroic resistance leader, but Aurelant clearly has some prejudice against other species, noting that Leia was a credit to humans for her fearlessness and referring to the Cerean Kidi as a cone head.
- Rebel Leader: Leads the resistance movement on Sesid, and eventually agrees to ally with the Rebel Alliance after meeting with Princess Leia. His goal is to once again open Sesid up to the galaxy without fear of exploitation and occupation.Aurelant: We may be a small world, and far from the important places of the galaxy, but we have long memories. Memories of a time before the Empire, when Sesid was free and the stars offered possibilities, not threats. Perhaps Sesid can be that way again.
- Secret Test of Character: Conducts one with Leia to determine if he can trust her and if the Rebel Alliance would be worth allying with by pretending to be a pirate seeking to collect the bounty on her head from the Empire. After she passes by showing no fear and attempting to recruit the "pirates" to the Alliance, Aurelant reveals his identity to her and agrees to have his movement align with the Alliance.
- Submarine Pirates: His resistance fighters are also pirates and based out of submarines like the Daggadol. Aurelant himself fits the image of a pirate captain extremely well, and carries around a cutlass as part of his weaponry.
- Tattooed Crook: His arms have pale tattoos covering them, adding to his pirate image.
A forested world on the Triellus Trade Route and the homeworld of the Gamorreans.
A race of green, porcine humanoids from Gamorr, often employed as muscle for Hutts such as Jabba.
- An Axe to Grind: Being a primitive warrior race that didn't discover space travel on their own, they prefer axes (among other melee weapons) as their weapon of choice, even in a galaxy dominated by blasters.
- Dumb Muscle: Gamorreans aren't the brightest sentient beings in the galaxy, thinking that they can solve every problem by hitting it really hard. They can also be very stubborn and loyal to whoever they are employed by as a result.
- Matriarchy: Patriarchy flip example. Even though the boars (males) do most of the warfare and the sows (females) do the farming and hunting, Gamorrean society is matriarchal. The warlords gain their position through marriage to a Matron rather than through force, but even then, the Matrons pick their mate based on their strength.
- Pig Man: They are green, humanoid pig people.
- Proud Warrior Race: On their homeworld, the Gamorreans are divided into clans each ruled by a male warlord and a female Clan Matron. Because in their viewpoint, War Is Glorious, war among clans was quite common.
- Space Orcs: Gamorreans are essentially fantasy orcs in spacenote , being brutish, strong, green, violent, tusked and pig-snouted brutes with low intelligence who, despite living in a galaxy full of high-tech weapons, including both Ray Guns and Laser Blades, still use simple metal-bladed axes.
- Starfish Language: Their language consisted mostly of grunts and squeals. They can understand Basic and other languages, but find it too difficult to pronounce.
- Stout Strength: Almost all Gamorreans that have been seen on screen were both portly and very muscular.
- Undying Loyalty: Deconstructed. They are loyal to whomever employs them, but because of their low intelligence, this makes them easy to exploit by criminal organizations like the Hutts.
The fourth moon of the gas giant Yavin, home to a number of ancient temples built by the Massassi people. During the early years of the Galactic Civil War, the temples were used by the Rebel Alliance as a base, eventually becoming their headquarters. After the Battle of Yavin, the Alliance was forced to abandon the base as its location had become known to the Empire, though after the Battle of Endor, the Alliance returned to Yavin 4 and established it as a civilian settlement.
- Schrödinger's Canon:
- In Legends, the temples were built by the Massassi at the behest of a Sith Lord.
- Building off the above point, the Massassi were an extinct race native to Yavin 4, a sub-species of the red-skinned Sith and powerful dark side adepts.
- Legends also depicts Yavin 4 as the site of Anakin Skywalker and Asajj Ventress' first face-to-face meeting, where he nearly killed her by tapping into the dark side. The Clone Wars establishes that Skywalker and Ventress have indeed met before, though no direct reference to the Yavin duel is made.
- In Legends, the temples were built by the Massassi at the behest of a Sith Lord.
- Single-Biome Moon: It appears to be all jungle.
- Commander Poe Dameron on the Resistance Heroes page
A remote Outer Rim world where three clone troopers who'd secretly had their control chips removed before Order 66 lived for many years.
- Deadly Dust Storm: In keeping with the tradition for desert planets.
- Sand Worm: The joopa, which the clones hunt for food.
- Single-Biome Planet: It's a different take on a desert planet, but it's still all desert.
The Forest Moon of Endor
The unnamed moon of the gas giant Endor. Home to three sentient species, the Ewoks, Duloks, and Yuzzum, the Forest Moon also holds many dangerous creatures, including the semi-sentient Gorax. During the Galactic Civil War, the Empire chose to build the Second Death Star in orbit of the moon and placed a shield generator there to protect the battle station.
- Meaningful Name: 'Endor serves as the main setting of the climax of Return of the Jedi, the final film in the Original Trilogy; the Rebel victory at Endor also marked the beginning of the end for the Empire.
- Single-Biome Planet: The moon is covered in forests.
- Tree Top Town: The Ewoks live in a village out of treehouses.
Sentient primitive furry bipeds native to the forest moon of Endor.
- Badass Adorable: They are cute little fuzzballs... who are capable of taking on the Empire's best through savage traps and sheer numbers.
- Bamboo Technology: They use gliders, batter rams, and catapults made out of wood and leather to help defeat the Empire.
- Bears Are Bad News: Especially if you're a Stormtrooper.
- Beware the Silly Ones: Yes, they're a bunch of teddy bear aliens. They're also surprisingly effective warriors and carnivores.
- Breakout Character: The aliens was so popular that they have their own spinoff material such as movies and an animated series. None of the other aliens accomplished that.
- Gang of Critters: A tribe, specifically.
- Rock Beats Laser: Capable of defeating the galactic empire with random forest material. This is also subverted a couple of times - certain methods that they employ end up being noticeably ineffective against AT-STs, notably when they try to trip them.
- To Serve Man: They are willing to eat other sentient beings. Unless they're just hanging people on sticks over a bonfire simply for laughs.
- Suffer the Slings: Ewoks use slingshots to launch rocks at the Stormtroopers. Amazingly, the slingshots prove wildly effective.
- Ursine Aliens: They look like tribal teddy bears.
- Yowies and Bunyips and Drop Bears, Oh My: Much like Wookiees resemble the North American cryptid Bigfoot, Ewoks bear more than a passing (though probably unintentional) resemblance to drop bears.
The chieftain of Bright Tree Village, Chirpa is convinced by the Rebels to aid them in assaulting the Imperial shield bunker on the moon of Endor.
- All There in the Manual: The sourcebook Star Wars: Absolutely Everything You Need to Know reveals that he was replaced as chieftain of Bright Tree Village by his daughter Kneesaa.
- Reasonable Authority Figure: After the whole Human Sacrifice mess got sorted out, it did not take much convincing for Chirpa to ally with the Rebels in an effort to free the moon from the Imperial's occupation.
- Staff of Authority: Wields a small bone staff, presumably as a sign of his status as chief.
The daughter of Chief Chirpa and a childhood friend of Wicket.
- All There in the Manual: Most information on her background comes from sourcebooks, with the primary one being On the Front Lines.
- Asskicking Equals Authority: Her bravery and skill in the Battle of Endor led to her becoming the first female chief of the Bright Tree tribe.
- Canon Immigrant: She originated in the animated Ewoks show, which is part of the Legends continuity.
- Royals Who Actually Do Something: She participated in the Battle of Endor, working alongside Rebel Pathfinder Kes Dameron to execute difficult tactical maneuverers.
- The Strategist: Like her friend Wicket, she was one of the tribe's primary planners behind the battle against the Empire.
Wicket W. Warrick
A young Ewok scout and warrior who finds and befriends Leia and helps bring the Ewoks into the war against the Empire.
- Alliterative Name: Wicket W. Warrick.
- Big Damn Heroes: At first, it appears he abandoned the Rebels when they were captured, but he actually went to get reinforcements and returned to the bunker in time to rescue them.
- The Cameo: Makes a brief appearance at the end of The Rise of Skywalker.
- Fire-Forged Friends: With R2-D2, who initially zapped Wicket after the Ewoks had attempted to burn him, Luke, Han, and Chewie. After the battle, Wicket and R2 are seen at the party celebrating together.
- Odd Friendship: He formed one with Princess Leia, which proved to be instrumental for asking for aid in the Battle of Endor.
- The Strategist: According to the Databank, he came up with the strategies the Ewoks used to take on Imperials.
- Tastes Like Friendship: Leia begins to form a bond with Wicket after offering him food in an effort to show she was not hostile.
The chief shaman of Bright Tree Village, Logray is one of the main advisors of Chief Chirpa.
- Adaptational Heroism: In Legends, Logray was a corrupting influence on Chirpa and involved in dark rituals, which led to his eventual exile and him placing a curse on the village. In canon, while he does attempt to sacrifice the Rebels, he is eventually convinced that supporting them is the right thing to do.
- Human Sacrifice: He is the one who decides to sacrifice Luke, Han, Chewie, and R2 to C-3PO, although he quickly calls it off at the display of C-3PO's "power".
- Skeletons in the Coat Closet: His headdress includes a large bird skull.
- Staff of Authority: Like Chirpa, he wields a bone staff as a sign of his position.
Gorax were a species of semi-sentient giant creatures native to the mountains on the moon of Endor. Members of the species were rarely seen, but sometimes emerged from their habitat to attack the villages of sentient Ewoks who also lived on Endor.
- All There in the Manual: In Star Wars: Absolutely Everything You Need to Know reveals that the Gorax traps the Ewoks set up as a defense would be re-purposed for taking out the All Terrain Scout Transport units deployed during the Battle of Endor.
- Canon Immigrant: Gorax were originally created for the Star Wars Legends movie Caravan of Courage: An Ewok Adventure, which was released in 1984 and included a member of the species as a major villain. The species was confirmed to be canon in the reference book Ultimate Star Wars which was released in 2015.
Wisties, were a sentient species native to the forest moon of Endor.
- Fairy in a Bottle: The Ewok and Wisties are allies with the latter letting the former sometimes used pouches full of Wisties as a weapon, throwing them in the direction of a target; on impact, the sprites emerged, both disrupting and burning the target
- Humanoid Aliens: Their art depicts them as such.
- Our Fairies Are Different: Well they're aliens for one, and have the ability to raise their body temperature to burn someone (which is extremely effective when they swarm a target.
A verdant world. In the eve of the Galactic Civil War, a rebel cell known as Iron Squadron hailed from Mykapo and attempted to liberate the planet from Imperial rule, but failed. Later, the Empire would enforce a lockdown on the world to prevent further rebel activities, which would stir the successors to Iron Squadron to action.
- Single-Biome Planet: Seemingly downplayed. From space, it has varying shades of green and also has blue for ocean, so it may be similar to Naboo, which has swamps/jungles, and pastorals.
- Tuckerization: Mykapo was named after Mickey Capoferri, an executive producer of Rebels Recon and The Star Wars Show.
A flight squadron stationed on Mykapo, led by the brother of Commander Jun Sato of Phoenix Squadron. After he was killed in action, the group dispersed, but his son, Mart Mattin, wished to carry on the fight and revived the group with the help of his friends.
For information on Iron Squadron led by Mart Mattin, see their entry on the Star Wars - Rebel Cells page.
- Took A Level In Cynicism: They were more sure of themselves before their leader was killed, though hearing that Mart tried to continue the name makes them scoff and decide to get back into action.
A mountainous snowy planet, home to a secret remote prison known as the Spire. During the Clone Wars, Count Dooku, Darth Sidious, and the Separatists held Darth Maul in this prison until the Shadow Collective broke him out. Later, under the reign of the Empire, the Grand Inquisitor lured Jedi Kanan Jarrus and Ezra Bridger to the prison in a failed attempt to apprehend them.
- The Alcatraz: The Spire is a prison secure enough to hold Force-users. Maul was unable to escape on his own, as his followers had to break him out.
A lush planet that housed an abandoned Rebel Base. In the eve of the Galactic Civil War, it housed the first formal meeting of the Rebel Alliance.
- Elaborate Underground Base: The Rebel Alliance established their first main base here and had plans to expand it, digging deeper underground, but for some reason they were eventually forced to abandon it and set up a new one on Yavin 4. The Empire later find the abandoned base and are surprised at how sophisticated it is.
- Hufflepuff House: We never see Dantooine in the theatrical films, but it plays a fairly significant role in A New Hope. It was the original location of the Rebel base, with Leia Organa later telling Tarkin that the Rebels are still there when he threatens to destroy Alderaan with the Death Star. Although poor Alderaan still gets blown up ("Dantooine is too remote to make an effective demonstration"), Leia's quick lie about Dantooine prevents the Empire from learning the location of the new base until after they get hold of the Death Star plans.
- Schrödinger's Canon: It was home to a Jedi Enclave during the Old Republic.
A small and isolated planet which was first settled shortly before the Clone Wars under the encouragement of the Republic's Ministry of Economic Development. With less than five hundred colonists, Lah'mu was selected as a hiding place by the Erso family after they fled the Empire.
- Agri World: It was originally settled as a farming planet for the Republic, although by the era of the Empire it had largely drifted from the attention of much of the galaxy.
- Arcadia: Lah'mu is a verdant and tranquil world that goes unnoticed by most people in the galaxy. It is sparsely populated, having less than five hundred colonists, who live mostly on the western hemisphere and make a simple living by farming. As a result, it's regarded as a perfect hiding place for the Erso family and so it proved for four years until the Empire finally tracked them down.
- Single-Biome Planet: The planet mostly consists of green hills and fields, and black sand beaches. Due to the fertility of the soil, it was settled as an agricultural planet.
Homeworld: Aria Prime
A geologist and surveyor from Aria Prime, Lyra was married to Galen Erso and the mother of Jyn Erso. A strong believer in the Force and the ideals of the Jedi, she distrusted the Empire and Director Orson Krennic, helping her husband discover that they were having him develop a superweapon using Kyber crystals, at which point they fled Coruscant with the help of Saw Gerrera.
- Age-Gap Romance: She's nine years younger than Galen; she was around 22 while he was around 31 when they got married.
- The Artifact: Lyra was originally going to be a Jedi in-hiding, until the creators decided instead to focus on more ordinary people in the galaxy and re-worked her character. In the film itself, Lyra still dresses in a somewhat Jedi-like manner, gives her daughter a kyber crystal necklace and tells her to "trust in the Force". Expanded material reveals that although she's not Force-sensitive, she still believes in the Force and has studied and agrees with many Jedi teachings.
- Better to Die than Be Killed: Lyra clearly holds this attitude when Krennic comes to claim her family. She knows that she's leverage that can be used to build a weapon that will threaten the galaxy. Her actions can also be seen as a noble Suicide by Cop; there's little reason to believe she thought she'd survive the altercation.
- Brainy Brunette: It doesn't really come through in the film, but expanded material reveals she is an expert on crystals and cave systems, and served as Galen's guide and later his lab assistant during his research into crystals, including kyber crystals.
- Call to Agriculture: She used to work as a geologist before going into hiding on Lah'mu, where she runs a farm with her husband.
- Character Death: She's shot by one of Krennic's Death Troopers in an attempt to kill him.
- Defiant to the End: Towards Krennic.
- Died in Your Arms Tonight: Subverted. She's already dead by the time Galen reaches her, cradling her in his arms.
- Gut Feeling: She never trusted Orson Krennic and was always suspicious of the real reason behind the kyber crystal research her husband was engaged in, later persuading him to flee Coruscant and go into hiding when they learnt about the Death Star. When Krennic tries to persuade Lyra to come quietly, promising she and her family would live in comfort, she rightly points out they'd just be hostages.
- Happily Married: It's strongly indicated she and Galen were.
- Heroic Sacrifice: Her actions in the opening scene of Rogue One could be seen as such. She knows that she and Jyn can be used as hostages to force Galen's cooperation in building the Death Star and dies attempting to take out Krennic. Sadly, her efforts are for naught as Galen is captured anyway.
- Imperiled in Pregnancy: She gave birth to Jyn while she and Galen were held hostage by Separatists on Vallt.
- Meaningful Name: Possibly. In the real world, Lyra is a small constellation, including Vega, one of the brightest stars in the sky.
- Missing Mom: She was killed when Jyn was five years old during an attempt to kill Orson Krennic.
- Sacrificial Lamb: She is killed in the opening scene of Rogue One, not long after her introduction, as part of Jyn's backstory and later motivation for joining the Rebellion.
- Say My Name: Galen shouts her name in anguish when a Death Trooper shoots her.
- Taking You with Me: She attempts to do this with Krennic, but sadly only manages to wound him.
- Tragic Keepsake: She gives Jyn a kyber crystal pendant shortly before she is killed.
- Underestimating Badassery: She very nearly succeeds in assassinating Krennic, mostly because he doesn't believe she would risk her own life to do it. Krennic does soon realise that she isn't going to back down and orders Lyra shot, which saves his life.
- Violently Protective Girlfriend: She single-handedly threatens Krennic and his troopers with a blaster in an attempt to protect her husband. Unfortunately, this gets her killed, though she does manage to shoot Krennic in the arm.
A world of grassy plains where large seed pods grew and the habitat of mastiff phalones. It was the homeworld of the lanky Amani, but was also settled by pacifist Lurmen who wished to avoid the Clone Wars after their own world, Mygeeto, became a victim of the war's bloodshed.
Village Chief Tee Watt Kaa
A male Lurmen who led a colonized village on Maridun. A devout pacifist, Kaa refused to engage in any sort of combat, even if the lives of his own were in danger. At one point, this would be challenged by the simultaneous stranding of a small group of Republic soldiers and the arrival of a Separatist superweapon test on Maridun.
- Actual Pacifist: Similar to Satine's, his is not one of the best versions of pacifism that you want to have during wartime, especially considering the circumstances they end up facing. He outright refuses to defend or even evacuate his village when the Separatists show up and when it is blatantly obvious that they are going to kill them to test out their new prototype superweapon on the village, because he believes that doing anything that isn't nothing would be considered participating in the war, the exact reason why his people made exodus off of their homeworld. He also doesn't care which side started the war and which side only wants to end it. To him, both sides are at fault since it takes two to fight.
- Extreme Doormat: He's clearly not happy when Lok Durd and his droids cause trouble in his village, but lets them anyway.
- Schrödinger's Canon: According to The Clone Wars tie-in webcomics (which are now Legends), the Lurmen can't leave Maridun even if they wanted to, as the native Amani - a race of vicious headhunters - have forced them to abandon the ship they came with. If they did want to leave, they'd have to fight the Amani and compromise their vow of pacifism.
- Suicidal Pacifism: He's devoted to his ideal of pacifism that he's willing to allow himself and his people to be destroyed, rather than going against his beliefs and taking up arms.
- Unwanted Rescue: He doesn't even want the Jedi or the Republic to protect his village. Of course, he has no say in the matter.Tee Watt Kaa: Stop building that wall. I didn't ask ya to defend us.
Anakin: This battle is inevitable. You can stand by your beliefs. But let us stand by ours.
The son of Tee Watt Kaa, who is the leader of a colonized village on Maridun. He serves as the village healer.
A temperate, forested planet used by the Resistance as a base during their conflict with the First Order.
- Asteroid Thicket: D'Qar has a planetary ring of asteroids.
- Orbital Bombardment: The First Order use a Dreadnought to destroy the Resistance's base from outer space, though they manage to evacuate just in the nick of time.
- Single-Biome Planet: In keeping with long-standing Star Wars tradition, from what's been mentioned it's all forest.
- Suspiciously Similar Substitute: A planetary example to Yavin 4. They're both temperate worlds covered in forests, both house the heroes' secret base in the first film of a trilogy and both nearly get destroyed by the villain's superweapon but are saved at the last minute.
Chistophsis was a crystalline planet that was the site of a battle between the Galactic Republic and Confederacy of Independent Systems that occurred early on during the Clone Wars. The planet was invaded by the Separatist droid armies of the Confederacy of Independent Systems before they had been repelled by the Jedi and clone troopers sent by the Galactic Republic. Eventually towards the end of the Clone Wars, the planet was once again the site of another battle between the Republic and the Separatists. After the Galactic Republic became the Galactic Empire, the planet was placed under Imperial rule. Christophsis was one of the few known sources of kyber crystals in the galaxy.
- Crystal Spires and Togas: The general aesthetic of Christophsis' cities are this trope to go along with its crystalline structure. Although, after a couple of fierce battles during the Clone Wars, they look somewhat the worse for wear.
- Power Crystal: Christophsis is one of four known sources of kyber crystals, alongside Ilum, Jedha, and Lothal.
Rodia was a remote swampy jungle planet. The native Rodians lived in cities protected by energy domes and were ruled by a government headed by a Grand Protector, who commanded the loyalty of all Rodian clans. Rodia was a member of the Galactic Republic and like many other worlds fell under the rule of the Empire. After the Battle of Endor, Rodia was freed of Imperial rule and joined the New Republic.
- Les Collaborateurs: Some Rodian clans sided with the Empire during its reign, including the Chattza clan, who held the Grand Protectorship shortly after the Battle of Yavin. Other Rodian clans who opposed the Empire and the Chattza clan provided arms to the Rebellion at a discount.
- Single-Biome Planet: Rodia's surface was seemingly covered by deep, extensive swamps chocked with vegetation.
A sentient species of reptilian humanoids with peeble-like scaly skin, twin antennae, long pointy ears, large black eyes, and tapir-like snouts, Rodians were a very widespread sight across the galaxy.
- Alien Blood: Rodian blood is green.
- Alien Hair: Male Rodians, who were otherwise unable to develop hair on their heads, sometimes had colored skull ridges.
- Aliens Speaking English: The species had their own language, Rodian, but many offworlders were often fluent in Basic. Others preferred huttese instead.
- Amazing Technicolor Population: While green was the most common skin color, yellow and turquoise rodians were not unheard of.
- Bizarre Alien Biology: Among other things, their eyes allowed them to see in infrared, their small antennae could detect vibrations and they were capable of breathing air saturated with the purrgil-generated Clouzon-36 without the assistance of a respirator. Females also possessed breasts and could grow hair.
- Bizarre Sexual Dimorphism: Female Rodians could sometimes develop and grow long, human-like hair, something males were apparently uncapable of.
- Black Bead Eyes: A Rodian's large, black pupil-less eyes allowed them to see in the infrared spectrum.
- Breakout Character: They are among the franchise's most famous and well-remembered extraterrestrial species, and have been appearing quite regularly in Canon and Legends alike.
- Creepy Long Fingers: The Rodian hand had long, spindly fingers with suction cups at the end which were very dexterous. The shape of the Rodian hand, however, was as such that if an object was designed for their species, it would be uncomfortable for a human to use.
- Humanoid Alien: They have the same basic humanoid body structure many other species share across the galaxy.
- Little Green Men: Rodians invoke this trope with their design, but they are usually man-sized and look more like tapirs than hominids.
- Lizard Folk: They have scaly, peeble-like skin.
- Non-Mammal Mammaries: Female Rodians possessed a pair of woman-like breasts.
- Pointy Ears: One of their most identifiable traits.
- The Reptilians: A very notable example of the franchise.
A harsh tundra planet. During the Clone Wars, a Rodian Senator ceded the planet and its peaceful, primitive culture to the Techno Union, who used its people as a testing ground to turn them into cyborg monsters.
- Off the Grid: It's close hyperspace proximity to Rodia, the Arkanis Sector, and Ryloth meant that it generally was left alone throughout galactic history except for maybe some use of the water on-planet. Then the Techno Union got their hands on it...
- Schrödinger's Canon: To ask the Nelvaanians, the Techno Union's machinations caused the planet to freeze over by exploiting the planet's geothermal energy and causing adverse effects across the planet's environment. Its actual environment, a more temperate one, began to return after the Techno Union were rooted out by the Jedi Order.
- Single-Biome Planet: It's a harsh tundra planet.
The peaceful low-tech natives of Nelvaan, who for most of galactic history were never paid much mind up until the Clone Wars, where the Techno Union began to use them for terrible experiments to turn the males of their species into cyborg monsters.
- Body Horror: If the original Legends source material for both Nelvaan and the Nelvaanians is anything to go by, the experiments that the Techno Union subjected them to were not pretty to say the least.
- Rite of Passage: Nelvaanian men must face a Horax and successfully gather a scale from its tail in order to be considered a Warrior-Scout.
A sulphurous desert planet. During the Clone Wars, it was under the control of Weequay pirate Hondo Ohnaka and his gang, who were driven off the planet at some point in the early years of the Galactic Empire.
Preigo's Traveling World of Wonder
Preigo was the male Dug manager of a traveling circus troupe known as the Traveling World of Wonder. At some point, he and his troupe had previously performed for the Ohnaka Gang, which resulted in the death of one of his actors, and was called on for an encore performance again for the group later during the Clone Wars.
- Off with His Head!: The last time he performed for the Ohnaka Gang, Hondo was unimpressed by something and had one of his pirates decapitate one of Preigo's performers, keeping their skulls as reminders. So Preigo books it once things screw up again.
- Screw This, I'm Outta Here!: When his new performers turn out to be undercover Jedi Initiates that attack the Ohnaka Gang, he books it out of fear for what Hondo might do to him.
The Ohnaka Gang
The capital of the Seswenna Sector, Eriadu rose to prominence during the early days of the Republic due to its large deposits of lommite ore and serves as a key stop on the Hydian Way trading route. Polluted by strip mining, life on Eriadu is nearly impossible outside of its cities due to dangerous plants and wildlife. In the later years of the Republic, Eriadu gained even greater galactic prominence due to the growing influence of Wilhuff Tarkin.
The Tarkin Family
- A Real Man Is a Killer: Their children are raised to be skilled hunters and killers.
- Fantastic Racism: Firm believers in humanocentrism. It says a lot that the most tolerant is Wilhuff Tarkin
- Parental Abandonment: When Governor Tarkin was a child, when he got in an argument with his parents about how people outside of their family are to be treated, he said he'd feed their non-human servant his dinner leftovers, to which his parents replied without a beat that they'd disown him and throw him out of their home. And with that being said, there's nothing against the idea that this trope hasn't already happened before with other family members.
- Used to Be a Sweet Kid: If a kid isn't already a jerk, then they either will be or will be disowned and kicked out. If anything, look at Wilhuff Tarkin.
Paternal grand-uncle of Wilhuff Tarkin. He trains members of the Tarkin family on the Carrion Plateau, where he lives.
- Does Not Like Shoes: He walks around barefoot a lot, with Wilhuff noting that years of this has made Jova's feet wide, callused, and tough enough to stomp down razor grass.
- Evil Mentor: He serves as one to any Tarkin who goes to the Carrion Plateau, putting them through Training from Hell while ingraining the Tarkins' unique views on life and instilling order. His grand-nephew Wilhuff Tarkin is his best and favorite pupil, and Jova does his best to follow how his career is progressing despite the lack of technology and news on the Carrion Plateau.
- The Hermit: He loved living, hunting, and killing on the Carrion Plateau so much that he decided to stay there. Thus, he has very little contact with the outside world outside of his family, and only rarely leaves the Plateau to bring members of the Tarkin family there to be trained.
The sister of the man that would become designated as TK-462 as an Imperial Stormtrooper as a result of her accidental death by rebels that were stealing from their family's farm.
A remote, uninhabited swampy planet strong in the Force, which was why Jedi Grand Master Yoda exiled himself there after the rise of the Empire.
- Death World: For those not named Yoda or Luke Skywalker, that is. The weather is a constant thunderstorm, the surface is muddy, dark and uncomfortable, there are zero settlements, and the whole planet is teeming with odd, and often dangerous life forms. Oh, and the planet is remote and obscure enough that getting supplies off-world is unlikely.
- Off the Grid: Is described in-universe as about as off-the-grid you can get. It's at the end of an obscure route, in the middle of absolutely nothing, with no significant civilization or even neighboring systems. Perfect place to hide out, one could say...
- Place of Power: It's stronger in the Force than most planets, enough so that dead Jedi Master Qui-Gon Jinn, who can normally only manifest as a disembodied voice, appears there as a cloud of lights.
- Psychological Torment Zone: The cave on Dagobah forces Luke to face Darth Vader and then see his own face within Vader's mask, forcing Luke to question himself.
- Schrödinger's Canon:
- In Legends, it was one of the several planets besides Kamino Count Dooku had secretly erased from the Jedi Temple records on Palpatine's orders.
- The Dark Side cave was apparently the site of a big battle between a Jedi called Minch (a rare member of Yoda's species) and a Dark Jedi, the aftermath of which caused the Dark Side to fester.
- There was apparently a cannibal clan descended from Republic explorers in Legends, whom Yoda encountered.
- Luke Skywalker eventually returned to Dagobah, setting up Jedi training facilities, dubbing the place "Mount Yoda".
- Single-Biome Planet: Dagobah, as far as can be seen, is all swampy forest.
- Stock Ness Monster: The Dragonsnake that lurks in the swamps, one of them attempted to eat R2.
A lightly populated desert world. The few towns on the world mine deposits of rhydonium, a highly-combustible fuel.
- Alien Sky: Abafar's sky is orange due to particles in the atmosphere diffusing sunlight throughout it, making it impossible to see the sun for direction and know what time of day it is.
- Crapsack World: Abafar is a terrible and desolate place to live, having only a handful of crappy towns like Pons Ora which are home to very unsavory beings (for reference, R2-D2 compares Pons Ora to Tatooine's Mos Espa not long after getting into town). It is also very deadly outside of the few settlements due to being nothing but an endless desert. Combined with the orange sky blocking the sun making it impossible to know in which direction you are going without equipment, being trapped in the middle of the desert becomes a death sentence.
- Crossing the Desert: Nearly impossible to do, since there are zero landmarks, not even the sun, to guide one through it. Also, the reflective white sand (in combination with the lack of a visible sun) obscures shadows and for some strange reason, leaves no tracks for guiding one back.
- I Don't Like the Sound of That Place: The planet-encompassing desert is called "The Void" (and the Republic's database only description of the planet is "Void" as well). A very appropriate description for a desert with almost zero discernible features and that is very easy to get lost in.
- Single-Biome Planet: The world is a desert.
A Sullustan cook who owns the Power Sliders diner.
- Card-Carrying Villain: The guy is so over the top, he manages to make "dishwasher" sound like the ultimate insult. His Evil Plan? Keep Gregor as one. Without paying him.
- Fat Bastard: He is an overweight racist jerkass.
- Fantastic Racism: Refers to Colonel Meebur Gascon, a Zilkin, as a conduit worm and refuses to serve him, going so far as to threaten him with a knife and run him out of his diner.
- Humanoid Alien: He is a Sullustan and has the basic human body shape but distinctly alien facial features.
- I'm a Humanitarian: His diner serves Ewok Jerky, made out of the meat of sentient Ewoks.
- Jerkass: His introduction has him attempting to murder Gascon, and then it is later revealed that he has essentially enslaved Gregor by paying him less than his rent to keep him trapped in perpetual servitude.
- Stereotype Flip: Sullustans are mostly known for being friendly, brilliant scientists, manufacturers, pilots, and during the Galactic Civil War, supporters of the Rebel Alliance. Borkus is a racist and sleazy, small business owner that pays his employees only enough that they are effectively his slaves.
A volcanic planet that is home to the Sullustan species and a significant population of humans. Due to its mostly inhospitable surface, most settlements on Sullust are underground. The SoroSuub Corporation employees more than half of the planet's population, as they manufacture everything from luxury starships to basic comlinks. During the reign of the Empire, SoroSuub was aligned with the Empire, which prompted many of its employees to subvert its goals or join the Rebellion.
- La Résistance: During the Empire's occupation of Sullust, there was always a fairly active resistance movement against it and SoroSuub.
- Lethal Lava Land: The surface of Sullust has a number of lava pools and streams, which makes the surface atmosphere toxic in long periods of exposure.
- Mega-Corp: The SoroSuub Corporation is the most influential faction on Sullust, employing more than half of the planet's workforce amongst its varied divisions.
- Underground City: All of Sullust's settlements are in caverns underground, with workers commuting to the surface factories on shuttles and elevators.
The native species of Sullust. They are a humanoid species renowned for their skills as pilots, manufacturers, and scientific and technological development. Sullustans are also prevalent among the spacers of the galaxy, both in legitimate and illegal roles.
- Humanoid Alien: Sullustan's have the typical humanoid body type with no major differences.
- Jumped at the Call: When the First Order began to emerge, a number of Sullustans saw the writing on the wall and remembered how their planet suffered under the Empire's occupation. They joined the Resistance or began making other preparations to fight the First Order when it made its inevitable move.
- Named After Their Planet: Their name is derived from their homeworld.
A backwater planet that attempted to avoid the Clone Wars but eventually became a battlefield.
The Lawquane Family
Species: Human clone (Cut), Twi'lek (Suu), Twi'lek-human hybrid (Shaeeah and Jek)
Homeworld: Saleucami (Suu, Shaeeah and Jek), Kamino (Cut)
A family of four consisting of Cut Lawquane, a deserter clone, his wife a Twi'lek woman named Suu, and her two children Shaeeah and Jek. They live on a farm on Saleucami.
- Absolute Cleavage: All Suu wears on her upper body is a bra, made from two straps of leather that're tied around her vertically.
- Absurdly Youthful Father: Cut is an interesting case. Chronologically he's eleven-twelve at the most, but due to the growth-acceleration used on all Fett-clones, he's biologically at least twice that old. Furthermore, Jek and Shaeeah are from Suu's previous relationship, thus, they're his stepchildren.
- All There in the Manual: The fact that Shaeeah and Jek are Twi'lek-human hybrids and that they're from Suu's previous relationship were only confirmed by Word of God and later in The Clone Wars Character Encyclopedia.
- Badass Normal: Cut might have deserted from the Clone Army, but he hasn't lost any of the badassery he got from being brought up as a soldier.
- Children Are Innocent: Shaeeah, upon seeing Rex's face, innocently says "You look like my daddy!" While this might be taken at face-value as an inability to tell one male human from another, it's later revealed that she means it quite literally.
- Clones Are People, Too: Not only is Cut married and has a family he wants, he even discussed this topic with Captain Rex.
- Defector from Decadence: Cut left the army after his whole squad was killed in battle, and he realized just how pointless and stupid the whole thing is.
- Disappeared Dad: According to the manual, Suu's previous lover (biological father of her two children) "moved out of her life", whatever that means, leaving her with the challenge of raising two children alone until she met and married Cut.
- Family Man: Cut went from having a duty as a soldier to having a duty to his family, and is intent on making sure they are safe.
- Fingerless Gloves: Cut wears a brown pair of these with the back being open.
- Foil: Cut got one in Gregor. They both lost their squads in a devastating battle. While Cut left the army out of his own will, and would like nothing more than to forget the horrors he saw, Gregor went missing, and lost his memories. Also when they were confronted by their earlier lives, Cut declared that he'd only ever fight again for his family. Gregor on the other hand Jumped at the Call and did everything in his power to assure the success of Gascon's mission.
- Good Counterpart: Cut is one to Slick. Both are clones who become disillusioned with the Republic and abandon it to its fate, but while Slick goes a step further and actively betrays his brethren, Cut is content to simply find a nice quiet corner of the galaxy to hide away in and mind his own business.
- Happily Adopted: Shaeeah and Jek are from Suu's previous relationship. Cut completely adores them, and they love him just as much.
- Happily Married: Cut and Suu are shown to have a stable and loving union.
- Half-Human Hybrid: Shaeeah and Jek are half-Twi'lek and half-human.
- I Just Want to Be Normal: Cut wants live a simple life with his family, rather than fighting in a war he finds pointless.
- Interspecies Romance: Cut (Human Clone) married Suu (Twi'lek).
- The Maiden Name Debate: Implied. Given that Cut is a Clone, it's more than likely that he didn't have a surname. In that case, "Lawquane" is most likely Suu's surname and Cut took it after marrying her.
- Mama Bear: She didn't actually get to show what she can do, but Suu did greet Jesse and the other clones with a rifle pointed at them, thinking they were trying to make trouble to her and her family.
- Meaningful Name: After a traumatic mission left him the Sole Survivor of his platoon Cut cut himself out of being in the clone army.
- Mixed Ancestry: Shaeeah and Jek are half-human/half-Twi'lek.
- Ms. Fanservice: Suu is not only a Pink-Skinned Space Babe, but she's a very stripperiffic one.
- Papa Wolf: Cut even claimed that although he did desert from the army, he'd fight to the death to protect his family, a claim he later proved spectacularly by taking on twenty -albeit damaged- Commando Droids, and defeating most of them.
- Patchwork Kids:
- Shaeeah has both human-like and Twi'lek blueish patches of skin, "ear cones" and the length of her lekku are similar to Numa, who's a full-blooded Twi'lek girl of roughly the same age.
- Jek apparently has human skin, humanoid ears, and his lekku appear to be much shorter than what the age difference between him and Shaeeah would indicate.
- Retired Badass: Cut was once a soldier in the Republic's Clone Army before deciding to become a simple farmer.
- Rubber-Forehead Alien: Suu, Shaeeah and Jek.
- Schrödinger's Canon: All There in the Manual back in Legends says that during the New Republic era, Shaeeah got around to writing an autobiography of her childhood as the adoptive daughter of a Republic clone deserter, called My Stepfather's Face: A Soldier's Secret. The title is a Call-Back to how she told Rex that he looks like Cut before the two clones were introduced to each other.
- Second Love: Cut is this for Suu, as her first husband (and biological father of her children), abandoned them at some point
- Shell-Shocked Veteran: Cut, and only after one battle.
- Single Woman Seeks Good Man: Suu's attraction to Cut was based in the fact that she believed he would do anything to protect his adoptive children.
Covered in desert plains and huge sinkholes, which house massive cities built into the cliffsides and caverns. In addition to the native Pau'an and Utai, the world is home to a large population of Amani. Utapau attempted to remain neutral during the Clone Wars but was a frequent target for the Separatists. It was eventually occupied by General Grievous, who met his end on the world during one of the final battles of the war.
One of the native species of Utapau, the Pau'an are a formerly nomadic people who eventually moved into the Utai's sinkhole cities to avoid the world's devastating hyperwind storms.
- Creepy Long Fingers: They have long fingers with sharp nails.
- Dark Is Not Evil: They have a genuinely creepy and evil looking appearance, but most Pau'ans attempt to maintain Utapau as a sanctuary world with a very diverse population of sentient races.
- Humanoid Alien: Pau'ans have the basic human body shape that is common to many species in the galaxy.
- Lean and Mean: Averted. Despite being very tall, thin and scary-looking, the Pau'an's are a generally peaceful bunch.
- Long-Lived: They live for centuries, which resulted in other shorter lived species referring to them as Ancients.
- Looks Like Orlok: They are tall, pale, bald, with sharp teeth and creepy long fingers. However, they are no more prone to being evil than any other species in the galaxy.
- Super Hearing: Their hearing is highly sensitive, causing them to wear special coverings over their ears to protect them.
Port Administrator of the sanctuary world Utapau.
- Bald of Awesome: He doesn't do much badass per se, but he does help Obi-Wan prepare for his confrontation with Grievous.
- Collared by Fashion: His collar goes all the way up to his ears.
- Dark Is Not Evil: He has pure black eyes, jagged teeth, and a menacing-looking collar, but he's really just a poor, neutrally-aligned sap who's waiting for someone to free his planet from an unwanted Separatist occupation.
- Facial Markings: Like most Pau'ans, he has red markings below his eyes.
- Hostage Situation: He finds himself in the middle of one courtesy of General Grievous by the time Obi-Wan comes to their planet. Unfortunately for him, the situation doesn't end with Grievous' death, as the clone army Obi-Wan brings with him occupies the planet instead after Order 66.
- Obfuscating Stupidity: He pretends not to know anything about Grievous because his droid forces are watching.
- Scary Teeth: His teeth point inward towards the center of his mouth.
The Grand Inquisitor/The Sentinel
One of the last "civilized" stops on the frontier between the Outer Rim Territories and Wild Space near the Unknown Regions, Batuu is a temperate world of forests, mountains, and rivers. It was once a major port for trade before the development of hyperspace but fell to the wayside afterwards. Since then, it has become a haven for those seeking to avoid attention and explorers eager to chart new territory. The Black Spire Outpost is the largest settlement on the world and the hub for nearly all of its enterprises. Despite its obscurity, Batuu has played a key role in several galactic events, first as a target of the Grysk during their first probes of the Republic and Empire, and later as the site of a new Resistance base after the First Order began their takeover the galaxy.
- The Cameo: In Star Wars Resistance, Yeager's family photo was taken on Batuu.
- Fictional Greetings and Farewells: The local greetings on Batuu are "Bright suns" in the morning and "Rising moons" in the evening.
- There Are No Police: Batuu had a police force during the Clone Wars, but by the time of the Resistance-First Order War it has been disbanded, with Oga Garra's gang providing the closest thing to a government or law and order on the planet.
A collector of rare artifacts, particularly those related to the Jedi and Sith. He sells some of his collection in his Den of Antiquities, while others he keeps hidden and safe from those who would abuse them.
- Everyone Has Standards: While his primary motivation is profit, he does seek to keep dangerous artifacts like the Sword of Kashyun out of the hands of dark side users like Kylo Ren.
- Mysterious Past: Much of his past is shrouded in mystery. All that is known is that he claims his parents were murdered at one point after making an archeological find on Ithor and that one of the few belongings of theirs delivered to him was a kyber statue identical to thousands in the Temple of the Kyber on Jedha. However, he later states that story is "mostly" true after using it to convince Chirrut Îmwe to let him steal one of the statues in his quest to supposedly solve his parents' murder.
- Stereotype Flip: Most Ithorians are peaceful and nature loving. Dok-Ondar is a ruthless collector who is not afraid to get his hands dirty when necessary. His parents were gardeners prior to their death, but he followed a much different path.
The owner of a salvage store at the Black Spire Outpost. Savi is secretly a Gatherer, worshiping the light side of the Force and seeking to guide Force-sensitives in the construction of lightsabers.
The owner of Oga's Cantina and the most powerful figure in Batuu's underworld.
- Interspecies Romance: She was in a relationship with a Wookiee, which ended badly when she discovered him sleeping with a Rodian waitress and murdered him when he mocked her for breaking things off.
- Playing Both Sides: More than willing to do this with the Resistance and First Order, although she eventually comes to see the Resistance as a better choice than the First Order due to its indiscriminate brutality hurting her business interests. Garra still warns Vi Moradi that if she needs to, she will sell out the Resistance base in a heartbeat.
A droid mechanic that works for Mubo. They are the player character of Tales from the Galaxy's Edge.
- Butt-Monkey: Mubo seems to only want them around for the payload and Seezelslak sends them on an errand to get the ingredients for the drink they ordered after he had just said he wanted to help you relax.
- Ascended Extra: He has a very minor role in the Galaxy's Edge theme park and Black Spire, but he's a supporting character in Tales from the Galaxy's Edge, being the player's boss.
The owner of a cantina at Black Spire Outpost.
- Cloudcuckoolander: His actor describes him as being a bit kooky from not having a lot of patrons. In the trailer, he sends you on quests to the Outlands to get ingredients for him and downplays the dangerous wildlife as "adorable", and apparently told the Guavians where to find you because he thought they were friends of yours.
- Extra Eyes: Seezelslak is an Azumel, an alien species with six eyes. One of his eyes seems to be blind.
- Framing Device: He tells some of the stories that the player plays through. In the trailer, he tells a story about a padawan undergoing training from Yoda, and the perspective changes to you playing that padawan.
- Go Mad from the Isolation: Downplayed and Played for Laughs. He seems a bit weird, but it's because he hasn't had anyone to talk to for a while before you showed up.
- Nice Guy: He's friendly to the player. That said... he's also friendly to the people who want your head, and since he's got a few screws loose, he thinks they're fine folks.
