Artus Prime was the location of a New Republic base and crystal mine.

History

Stormtroopers firing at revolting prisoners in the Battle of Artus Prime.

The valuable Artusian crystals mined there were sought after primarily due to their potential for use as focusing elements in lightsabers. Wildlife on the planet included the scavenging mine crab.

The facility was captured by the Empire Reborn movement in 12 ABY as part of the fallen Jedi Desann's plans to create an army of Force sensitive soldiers. The plot was discovered by New Republic Intelligence agent Kyle Katarn and soon after—in the Battle of Artus Prime—Katarn aided a New Republic battle fleet in recapturing the facility and liberating the planet.

Towards the end of the battle, Kyle confronted Desann, who had captured his professional partner Jan Ors. Kyle was beaten easily by Desann, who then tricked Kyle into believing Jan was murdered. This would lead Kyle to return to the Valley of the Jedi, to regain his connection with the Force, and seek out his revenge.
