History

Located in the Auril sector on the Outer Rim near Weytta, the planet was a former member of Xim's empire. Murkhana served as the headquarters of the Corporate Alliance during the Clone Wars. The tallest building in Murkhana was the Argente Tower, a complex of administrative offices that was presumably named for the Corporate Alliance Magistrate Passel Argente. Murkhana was also the source for the many Confederate "Shadowfeed Dispatches" which were used to distribute Separatist news and propaganda.

During the Battle of Murkhana, which occurred as the Clone Wars died down, a unit of Republic clone troopers were led by Jedi Masters Roan Shryne and Bol Chatak, along with Chatak's Padawan, Olee Starstone. When Order 66 was issued, it did not reach Murkhana until after the Clone Wars were over, the Jedi Order outlawed, and the New Order created. When the order did arrive, the three Jedi escaped execution thanks to a team of clone commandos whom Shryne had befriended during the course of the war.

During the Second Galactic Civil War, Kem Stor Ai considered going to war against Murkhana. Nav Ekhat was its senator in the Galactic Alliance Senate.

Geography

Little is known about this planet's surface. However, it is known that many buildings were constructed out of material similar to ocean coral; in fact, many clones had mistakenly thought it was acually made out of coral.
