From Wookieepedia, the Star Wars wiki.

The Periphery was a region of space that skirted Hutt Space and the Outer Rim Territories. It was also bordered by the Tharin and Ansuroer sectors, and the Karstaxon Regions. A number of major hyperspace routes ran through the region, with the Sisar Run and the Salin Corridor meeting at Sriluur, the region's capital. The Ac'fren Spur also ran from Sriluur out to the Si'Klaata Cluster in nearby Hutt Space.[1]

The Periphery was home to a number of sentient species, including the Defel, the aquatic Sedrians, the Ry'coz, the Vaathkree and the Weequay. Many other species immigrated to the region, including a number of long abandoned Hutt colonies. Given the region's proximity to Hutt Space, it was often thought that the Hutt criminal empires had significant influence in the region. In actuality, Black Sun controlled much of the region, through its Vigo Sprax. In addition to this activity, the region had been plagued for many years by the Disac pirates and well as the Ghilron pirates. The Disac pirates caused such significant interruption to Black Sun activities in the region that Ket Maliss, personal assassin of Black Sun's head, was dispatched to eliminate the pirate group. The Dashade was successful in this task, eliminating virtually the entire organization.[1] The Nikto Cult of M'dweshuu was also active in the region in the days of the Old Republic.[4]

During the Galactic Civil War, the region was governed by Moff Newen Streeg. The Imperial navy presence in the Periphery was spearheaded by the Imperial-class Star Destroyer the Ruthless, aided by the Strike-class cruiser Ion Storm. While this presence had to deal with various criminal activities, it was also directed at activities of the Alliance to Restore the Republic which was active in the region.[3] The Rebels even operated their own penal colony on Dles IV in the Dles system.[1]

During the Yuuzhan Vong War, a number of the regions' worlds such as Sriluur were overrun by the Yuuzhan Vong invaders.[3]


Behind the scenes

The Periphery is never specified as a sector, rather it is only referred to as a region. As such, it political status is unclear. One example of this lack of clarity is the Novor system which is described and depicted as being within the Periphery; however, its capital, Luj City, is described as a key financial center in the Tharin sector.[1]

The planet Jofoger may have been in the Periphery. It is known to on the Sisar Run.[5]
