Affiliation

Poderis was a planet in the Orus sector of the Inner Rim.

It was a marginal world whose colonists hung on through tenacity and stubbornness, with a disorienting ten-hour day and nearly perpendicular axial tilt that resulted in hurricane-force winds during spring and autumn. Its terrain consisted of great mesas jutting up from the planet's oceans, where colonists lived behind the protective screen of great windbreaks called shield-barriers, man-made from starship-grade metal. Poderis was also a drop-off or pickup location for smugglers.[2]

History

Luke's escape

Grand Admiral Thrawn used Poderis as a red herring to throw Luke Skywalker off in his search for the Empire's clone traffic. Luke infiltrated the then-Imperial Remnant planet.

During the year 9 ABY, Luke Skywalker was trapped on a roof connecting to the shield-barrier on Poderis, trying to escape certain capture.He was trying to find out whether Poderis was a transfer point for the Empire's new clone traffic. Luke used his fantastic sensing abilities to see if imperials were nearby. He detected blank spots in which his powers could not detect anything, which could only mean ysalamiri. He then knew it was a trap and jumped up to the roof, only to find he could not go anywhere.

He fashioned a protective wrapping for his hand out of a torn piece of the left sleeve of his tunic. He then made a groove in the outside of the wall which he stuck his hand into and began his descent by holding the lightsaber in front of him, digging out a slanted path for his hand to follow in. After he went about 100 meters across the wall, he cut a hole in the shield-barrier and went back inside the city.

Behind the scenes

The PC game Star Wars: Rebellion mistakenly places the Orus sector and, consequently, Poderis, in the Outer Rim Territories.
