"The Noghri had no interest in the war. But the war came to them nonetheless."
Bly

Honoghr (pronounced /'hɑnoˌgɚ/) was the homeworld of the Noghri, near Kessel. Seven planets orbited the Honoghr sun, from tiny Logru with its oceans of boiling lava, to distant Kuthul, the frozen giant. Of these seven worlds, it was the fourth planet that was blessed with life.

In 20 BBY, during the Clone Wars, the nonaligned planet became an ecological disaster when, after a battle in orbit, a Lucrehulk-class Core Ship crashed to the surface. The Galactic Republic took great interest in the accident due to the Separatist ship's cargo: the toxin Trihexalophine1138. As the contaminant spread, it ravaged the planet and desiccated most of its flora. Over the next few months, plains and jungles died, forcing the Noghri to trek across the planet in a mass exodus searching for a place where they could somehow survive.

Within weeks of the end of the war, Darth Vader arrived at Honoghr – and promptly found his stormtrooper guards slaughtered around him by the natives with nothing more then primitive bladed weapons, impressing the Dark Lord greatly. In exchange for the Galactic Empire working to restore the planet's ecosystem, the Noghri gave homage to Vader and pledged to serve him as assassins—the Death Commandos. In reality, the Imperial restoration teams deliberately kept Honoghr poisoned using a hybrid grass that killed off the remaining plant life, thus keeping the Noghri bound in the service of the Empire.

History

The planet was once part of the Infinite Empire 30,000 BBY. The Rakata constructed a temple which remained sacred to the Noghri long after the Empire's collapse.

During the New Sith Wars, there was a Sith Academy there, that specialized in training Sith Warriors and Marauders.

Later, during the Thrawn Crisis in 9 ABY, Leia Organa Solo arrived at Honoghr and, using her position as the daughter and heir of Darth Vader and having discovered the Empire's trickery, persuaded the Noghri to relinquish their allegiance to the Empire. The Noghri were freed from their enslavement and became members of the New Republic and its successor government the Galactic Alliance. The Noghri were represented in the New Republic Senate by Kahr'corvh of Clan Khim'bar.

Leia and her entire family also became very highly respected figures in Noghri society. The New Republic helped resettle the Noghri to other planets, including Wayland, to give Honoghr time to heal.

Behind the scenes

It should be noted that, while the Battle of Honoghr took place in 20 BBY, the Maitrakh of Clan Khim'bar tells Leia that the planet was devastated 48 Honoghr years ago, or 44 standard years ago. Taking into account that Leia visited in 9 ABY, this piece of information implies it happened around 35 BBY. The Essential Guide to Alien Species retconned this by saying that the year on Honoghr is shorter than usual time on other planets.
