Garqi was an agriworld and the sector capital of Tadrin sector, in the Outer Rim Territories. Natural elements in Garqi's crust gave the native plant life a purple coloration. From space, the planet appeared a beautiful, hypnotic violet color. It was the source of the beans used to make caf.

History

During the Outer Rim Sieges in the Clone Wars, the Confederacy of Independent Systems invaded Garqi. In response, the Galactic Republic sent an army under the Jedi General Traavis. A squad of Clone commandos, Aiwha Squad, was responsible for the Republic victory on Garqi. Their exploits included recovering victims of war from the planet's numerous villages, notably the young child, Evan, who they escorted to the Republic encampment on the planet. Although the incoming deactivation of all Separatist droid forces would ultimately mean victory for the Grand Army of the Republic, General Traavis would be lost during the conflict when Aiwha Squad murdered him due to the execution of Order 66.

Prior to the Battle of Endor, the Galactic Empire established a military garrison on the planet. Despite the destruction of the second Death Star, the Empire still held on to Garqi, keeping its inhabitants in check through the Garqi Eagle Squadron. However, the population continued to resist the Empire, with much of the movement originating from the Garqi Agricultural University, located near the capital Pesktda.

After Corran Horn left Corellian Security Force, he came to Garqi on the run from the Empire. The University students knew him through his droid, Whistler. Working undercover as an aide to Imperial Prefect Mosh Barris, Corran helped many political prisoners escape from Garqi. Two of the prisoners were Dynba Tesc and the Duros trader Lai Nootka. After the Empire was driven from Garqi, the planet joined the New Republic.

During the Yuuzhan Vong War, Garqi was conquered by the Yuuzhan Vong. The New Republic was forced to abandon the population, who went underground, resisting the alien invaders. It was later discovered that the Yuuzhan Vong were using the planet as a breeding ground for their Chazrach slaves. A Jedi-led force scouted the planet in a battle in 25 ABY. Although the New Republic received limited communication with the remaining resistance fighters for a time, they suddenly ceased, leaving many to wonder the fate of its people.
