Commander Visor's sandbox page for Star Wars planets and races.
During the reign of the Galactic Empire, an area of the Deep Core was established as the Deep Core Security Zone, blockaded by Imperial Interdictor cruisers. In addition, the Empire developed hyperspace routes that went through star systems within the Deep Core.
- The Name's The Same: Not to be confused with the Outer Rim world of Byss, which is the homeworld of the Abyssin species.
- Schrödinger's Canon: It's a mythical paradisaical world that is also a hotspot for the dark side. Once Palpatine found it, he corrupted it and Byss's Force properties went From Bad to Worse (as in, life couldn't develop properly, so Byss was reduced to a near-wasteland), while settling the world for immigrants at the same time, also making the world on heavy surveillance and protection from the Empire.Legends note
- Going with hyperspace routes being developed through the Deep Core in this canon, there was the Byss Run from Legends that only managed to stay stable using costly devices suspended in hyperspace to keep the lane open. The Byss Run was also heavily secure, requiring that you have a clearance for the Security Zone or you'll be shot down. Word of God also stated that the secret route Grievous and the Separatists took to the Battle of Coruscant "corresponds" with the Byss Run, though we still don't know any details in this canon on how the Separatists reached Coruscant.
- Continuity Snarl: Fort Anaxes was reused for Rebels, but this creates a hole in how the Ghost crew do not have interest in travelling to the Core Worlds due to how dangerous it is and the long distance between Lothal & the Core Worlds.
- Schrödinger's Canon: The Clone Wars All There in the Manual stated that while Yularen was born on Coruscant, he was raised on Anaxes.
- Rae Sloane on the Imperial Navy page.
A world home to the Kuat Drive Yards manufacturing company, infamous for producing many Imperial weapon designs such as the Imperial walker and the Star Destroyer. These shipyards encircled the planet as a manmade ring.
- Gideon Hask on the Inferno Squadron page.
- Expy: They look similar to the Rakata, though their eyes are closer to their head and don't have as tall foreheads.
- Meaningful Name: Protobranchia is a subclass of bivalve mollusks, otherwise known as deep-sea clams, hence the mollusk-like appearance of the Bivall. And since that's their scientific classification, is it a wonder why the first Bivall we meet is Doctor Sionver Boll, a scientist?

Kiffex & Kiffu
Two sister planets, both home to the Kiffar species.

- Quinlan Vos on the Jedi Masters page.
A tropical world and a popular vacation site.
- Lorica Demaris on the Resistance Starfighter Corps page.
- Plo Koon on the Jedi Council page.
During the Clone Wars, it was the site of a battle held by the Mud-Jumpers of the Grand Army of the Republic's 224th Company around the same time the Separatists attempted to take the Rishi Moon outpost in an assault against Kamino.
- What Could Have Been: During the making of Rogue One, Mimban was considered as a setting before Jedha replaced it.
- Oppo Rancisis on the Jedi Council page.
Also known as the Ring of Kafrene, it was a mining colony and deep-space trading post. Captain Cassian Andor of the Rebel Alliance was sent to contact Tivik of the Partisans and learned about the existence of the Death Star.
Governor Everi Chalis
- Mace Windu on the Jedi Council page.
- Schrödinger's Canon: She's one of the youngest handmaidens in the group.
- Schrödinger's Canon:
- She's the youngest handmaiden in the group.
- She's a musician.
One of Padmé's handmaidens during her tenure as senator. Bounty hunter Cato Parasitti impersonated her in an attempt to sabotage a meeting with Arthurian delegates, but was stopped.
A world that had a ring-shaped station orbiting it. Initially aligned with the Republic, during the Clone Wars, it was taken by the Separatists, causing a battle to retake Ringo Vinda to go out on Ring Station. Jedi Generals Anakin Skywalker, Tiplar, and Tiplee led the 501st Clone Battalion and Doom's clone battalion against Admiral Trench and his battle droids, but Clone Trooper Tup's Order 66 protocol accidentally went off, causing him to kill Tiplar in the midst of battle. Republic forces temporarily fell back to send Tup back to Kamino for behavior investigation, but as the investigation was also reported to the Separatists by Trench, Darth Sidious and Tyrannus intervened on numerous occasions to prevent their plans from being compromised.
The River Moon of Al'doleem
A moon untouched by the Clone Wars. It had been the location of a Jedi outpost, which has since been abandoned, though in recent years, has been the escape of Jedi Master Kirak Infil'a, who had taken up the Barash vow.
Jedi Master Kirak Infil'a
During the Clone Wars, Ruusan was aligned with the Separatist cause and one of its moons, Ruusan 2, was home to Skytop Station, a re-purposed Trade Federation ship turned into a secret Separatist listening post commanded by General Grievous. Anakin, Ahsoka, and R3-S6 (secretly a spy for the Separatists) would embark there to rescue R2-D2.
A remote world with a violent stormy atmosphere. Because of this, a starfighter designer and engineer named Quarrie settled on the planet to create and test starfighters (such as the Blade Wing, later known as the B-Wing prototype) that could withstand such conditions under the logic that they would better withstand regular space combat. During the Blockade of Ibaar in the eve of the Galactic Civil War, Phoenix Squadron sent Captain Hera Syndulla to retrieve the B-Wing prototype, in hopes of using it to break through the blockade.
- Mythology Gag: In Legends, instead, Shantipole was the name of the project that created the B-Wing, having started after the Battle of Yavin. The project was conducted on an asteroid in the Mid Rim, with then-Commander Ackbar (also a Mon Calamari) contributing to the project. When the Empire found out about the project, they attempted to blockade the system in which the project took place in, but it was broken by the B-Wings. Sounds a bit familiar.
- Schrödinger's Canon: In The Freemaker Adventures, Quarrie suggests to Rowan to lure M-OC to Shantipole and fight him there, which he does.
Bright Jewel Sector
- Crapsack World: Kind of. According to Princess of Alderaan, Wobani was one of the worlds subject to Palpatine's abusive legal policies under the Empire, causing farmers to not meet quota and getting their farmland confiscated to be given to Imperial officers that would not be restricted to said policies & would thus profit off of farming themselves.
- Meaningful Name: When Jyn is given her welcome-to-hell speech by the Imperial prison warden, he spells out LEG-817 fast enough for it to sound like "elegy", which is a poem that seriously and somberly reflects, usually as a lament of the dead.
- Significant Anagram: Averted. The world's name is an anagram of "Obi-Wan", but it has nothing to do with him.
After Separatist forces failed to keep control over Onderon thanks to the local Republic-backed rebel insurgency, Count Dooku ordered General Kalani to pull out his forces and take them to Agamar, though under unstated circumstances, the Separatist fleet crash-landed and were isolated from the rest of the Clone Wars. At the end of the war, when the Separatist droid shutdown command was relayed, Kalani refused to carry it out. The Separatist holdout would later be found by rebels on a scavenging mission in the eve of the Galactic Civil War, later followed by Imperial forces, causing both parties to form an alliance to escape Agamar.
- Offscreen Moment of Awesome: There was a Battle of Agamar during the Clone Wars, though the forces under Kalani weren't completely wiped out.
- Janyor under the Garel section below.
- The Name's The Same: Not to be confused with the Deep Core world of Byss.
- Cyclops: And green-skinned, and kind of dinosaur-looking.
A world affiliated with the Archaeological Association. After the assault on Sunspot Prison, archaeologist Doctor Aphra began operating more often on the Cosmatanic Steppes after the end of her service with Darth Vader and the Empire.
A remote colony world. It was named after Eufornis Major, a Core world.
- The Name's The Same: Not to be confused with the city-world of Eufornis Major.
- Nazhros Oleg on the Lothal Imperial Garrison page.
A world that was well-known for raining corrosive acid and shards of glass.
- Canon Immigrant: Originated in Legends, most notably featured in Clone Wars.
- Schrödinger's Canon: It is mentioned that during the Clone Wars, an ambush had taken place in a crashed Acclamator-class ship on Hypori, a nod towards the infamous battle scene in Clone Wars where General Grievous ambushed several Jedi including Ki-Adi-Mundi, Shaak Ti, Aayla Secura, and K'Krukh (a major character in Legends) as his droid army cornered the ship, until Republic reinforcements led by Captain Fordo arrived.
A world considered as a potential location for a rebel base by Phoenix Squadron. However, those plans were compromised and dumped after the Imperial Inquisition tracked down rebel Jedi Kanan Jarrus and Ezra Bridger on Oosalon, having been doing reconnaissance on the world.
- Yarael Poof on the Jedi Council page.
- Adaptational Name Change: Before the Legends rebranding, as Ventress got Retconned by The Clone Wars into being a Dathomirian Nightsister rather than a Rattaki, the physical appearance of both the Dathomirians and the Rattaki ended up changing. Now, Rattaki is considered synonymous with Siniteen or a general demonym for the populace of Rattatak, while Dathomirian Nightsisters have pale skin (and look less like humans... probably because none of them are pure-blooded humans anymore) ever since.
- Canon Immigrant
During the Clone Wars, Separatist General Grievous had a fortress on the third moon of Vassek. At one point, after Viceroy Nute Gunray escaped Republic custody, a Republic taskforce led by Jedi Master Kit Fisto and his former Padawan Nahdar Vebb traced the Viceroy's location to the general's lair, but it was revealed to be a trap that cost the lives of the entire team bar Master Fisto and his astromech, R6-H5.
General Grievous's "guard dog" in his lair.
Model: EV-series medical droid
The caretaker of General Grievous's lair on Vassek 3. He was destroyed by a Republic taskforce during a raid on the lair.
- Oh, Crap!: When he realizes he lost track of Kit Fisto while watching Nahdar get his butt kicked by Grievous and then is killed from behind seconds later by Kit.
- Schrödinger's Canon:
- He used to work in a hospital, and droids of his model typically have faulty programming that causes them to develop sadistic personalities (apparently, it has something to do with mixing up the motivator of an illegal torture droid with this model's). He got fired when he ordered his droid subordinates to operate on patients without administering anesthesia.
- Grievous got around to getting A4-D reconstructed, and the droid ended up tagging along with Grievous on some missions as an adviser from time to time.
- Servile Snarker: The only reason why Grievous doesn't scrap him right then and there is because someone needs to houseclean his stuff and nurse him back to health.
- Tuckerization: Maybe. "A4-D" sort of sounds like "Acord", the last name of his voice actor.
- We Hardly Knew Ye: He dies at the end of the same episode he debuts in. Word of God is that they apparently regret doing this, having found him entertaining.
A world that was home to Reclamation Station, a secret Imperial plant that orbited within the planet's atmosphere. The Empire forced Ugnaughts to work aboard the station, taking apart and destroying derelict machinery such as starfighters. In the eve of the Galactic Civil War, an Ugnaught worker was arrested, but told his fellow inmate Hondo Ohnaka that the station was currently disassembling Y-Wings. After being rescued from Imperial prison on Naraka, Hondo informed Phoenix Squadron about the Y-Wings at the station, leading to the rebel cell sending a reconnaissance team to verify Hondo's claims. However, the mission's cover was compromised and Lieutenant Commander Ezra Bridger changed the mission objective to retrieving the Y-Wings.
An Ugnaught that worked on Reklam Station. At some point, the Empire threw him in jail on Naraka, becoming the cell inmate of Hondo Ohnaka, who had been arrested for being pirate, a rebel accomplice, and compromising Imperial operations. Learning of Hondo's ties to the Rebellion, the two struck a deal with the Ghost crew and Phoenix Squadron; in exchange for being rescued from prison, they would inform them of the recent arrival of Y-Wings at Reklam Station. However, Terba called off the deal during their rescue and was killed by an AT-AT walker at the entrance of the prison.
The location of a Partisan rebel outpost.
The capital of the Confederacy of Independent Systems, where the Separatist Parliament was based in.
- Tuckerization: Christopher Yost is a writer on Rebels.
- What Could Have Been: It was almost featured in one of the Rebels magazine comics, but was replaced by Thune.
A humanoid species with brightly colored-skin and floating head-tendrils. A secretive species, much about them is still a mystery to the rest of the galactic community.
- Amazing Technicolor Population: So far, they come in shades of red (including pink) and yellow. If concept art is to be believed, they also come in shades of white.
- Bizarre Alien Biology: Their tendrils float in the air, which is not exclusive to its Force-sensitive members, as seen with Sakas in Shattered Empire as well as What Could Have Been art for the Smuggler from Uprising.
- Mythology Gag: They are based off of pieces of concept art for a Sith warrior(s) in Attack of the Clones.
- Rubber-Forehead Aliens: Their head-tendrils in the air, seemingly on their own.
The location of a prestigious Imperial Academy.
- Schrödinger's Canon: A couple of decades before the Clone Wars, Secundus Ando was attacked by the Andoan Free Colonies, which began the Andoan Wars. However, thanks to now-Admiral Trench, he was able to successfully lead the Harch against them.
- Funny Animal: Not so funny if you don't like spiders being the particular animals turned into people.

- Rubber-Forehead Aliens: They look like humans, except with tentacle antenna... things.
- Katooni on the Jedi Order page.
- Mythology Gag: Based off of concept art of Jar Jar.
