Belsavis was a planet in the Ninth Quadrant, which was a region of the Bozhnee sector. Ice-covered, its average temperature was in the -50s. It was located on the Belsavis Run.




Old Republic era

It entered an ice age around 5,000 BBY. Its inhabitants dwelt in three volcanic jungle rifts. One of these, Plett's Well, was settled 88 BBY by Jedi Master Plett, and came to be called simply Plawal. The main Republic colonization of the planet occurred 20 BBY, with many plants and animals being imported from Ithor.

The bounty hunter Jango Fett was once captured and imprisoned in an underground labyrinth on Belsavis. Although pursued by kretch insects, he managed to escape by figuring out the internal logic of the maze.[2]

In 19 BBY, Plett hid a number of Jedi younglings in Plett's Well from the Great Jedi Purge, but the Galactic Empire sent the Eye of Palpatine to bombard Plawal. Fortunately, Jedi Knights Callista Ming and Geith sabotaged the Eye, but Plett and the Jedi younglings were forced to flee the planet regardless. Some of the younglings, such as Roganda Ismaren, were captured by the Inquisitorius.

Around 6 BBY, the Imperial Governor stationed a few tariff police on the world to deal with an upshoot in smuggler activity. Around 0 BBY, Brathflen Corporation and other fruit-companies established domes around the world. At the time of the Battle of Hoth, Mara Jade visited to the world to investigate the rumors of the Jedi fugitives.

New Republic era

In 12 ABY, a large shipment of Tenloss Disintegrator rifles was to be shipped to Belsavis, but the cargo was stolen on Nar Shaddaa. New Republic Intelligence was informed of the thief, but were unsure why the munitions were heading there in the first place.[3]

The planet allied with, but did not join, the New Republic, maintaining independence. Later in 12 ABY, Roganda Ismaren later attempted a coup against the New Republic on Belsavis, attempting to make her son Irek Ismaren the new Emperor with financial backing from treacherous nobles from the neighboring Juvex Sector and Senex Sector, using Irek's abilities with mechu deru to control the Eye. Roganda was foiled by Luke Skywalker, Callista, and Leia Organa Solo.

The planet Belsavis.

Belsavis was the location of a secret Jedi enclave that housed many younglings after the Jedi Purge. It was led by the Ho'Din Master Plett. Callista Ming and her lover Geith protected the enclave from the Eye of Palpatine.

After the Eye was no longer a threat, Plett led all the Jedi that were left and headed to secret coordinates that Nathaniel Kenobi had given them.
