Affiliation
"I know where it is. The planet is called Thule. Thousands of years ago it was an ancient Sith stronghold. Ulic fought there during the war. That's where the Dark Reaper is buried."
Anakin Skywalker

Thule was a semi-arid planet known for its rich savannas, continually bombarded by lightning storms, but Thule was also a hidden Sith stronghold. The rocky outcroppings which broke the plains were charred black from being hit by lightning. This charred rock later served as a form of sustenance for unusual, bioluminescent moss that made the rocks glow with an eerie light.

History

The aftermath of the Battle of Thule in 22 BBY.

Thule was on the northern frontier of Xim's empire.

After the Great Hyperspace War, several Sith survivors fled to the world, where they would remain for generations, waiting for their revenge on the Jedi and the Republic. They established a military dictatorship, ruled by an oligarchy of eight generals.

Ulic Qel-Droma fought on Thule during the Great Sith War, during which time the Dark Reaper was buried on the world. With the rise of Darth Revan's empire, Thule was absorbed into its boarders. At some point after, but before the Seventh Battle of Ruusan, a group of Sith (presumably the New Sith Empire) established a colony of Chiss on Thule, for reasons undetermined.

In 22 BBY, Count Dooku went to Thule to revive the Dark Reaper in an attempt to destroy the Galactic Republic during the Clone Wars. A planetary shield enveloped the planet Thule, projected by the small moon Sivvi orbiting it. An attack led by the Republic resulted in the Battle of Thule and the destruction of the Dark Reaper.

Behind the scenes

In Greek mythology, Thule was a land far to the north of Britain.

Also an Airbase and BMEWS (Ballistic Missile Early Warning System) base in Greenland.

Thule could be named for the occultist Thule Society of the Nazi regime.

Star Wars: Complete Locations places Thule in the Expansion Region, in relative proximity to Shili, whereas other sources confirm its location in the Outer Rim Territories. Due to a last minute change at Lucas Licensing, Thule was also incorrectly placed in the Inner Rim Territories in Inside the Worlds of Star Wars: Attack of the Clones.[3]

In some cases, it's name has been prounounced in a similar way to fool, and in others to fuel.

Appearances

  • Bane of the Sith (First mentioned)

The Star Wars wiki of fan invention.

Thule was the Tarisian jedi twin of Jaarik, who also fell to the dark side. His lightsaber as a jedi was orange. He was much more tuned in the force than many members of the cult.

Sithdom

"Thule?! No, it can't be!" "Hah! You know the truth, jedi!" "You were stationed here last week! How?" -jedi master Akara Vallus and Thule just before their duel.

Thule followed his brother into Jad Rayne's Sith Cult. His robes were similar to Jaarik's, but blue instead of crimson. His lightsaber was a light shade of red.

Death of a Sith

"Ah!!" "I'm sorry, Thule. It shouldn't have ended this way." "Hah! You know my brother will never give up hunting you, Vallus!" -Thule's last words

Minutes before the Assault on Chandrila, Akara Vallus caught up with his best pupil's brother. Thule was on his way back to the main tomb from a patrol, and unfortunately Akara's drop pod landed right down a rabbithole that led down to the ledge where the sith stood. Thule sensed the disturbance and rezlized that a team of jedi were near, and began setting off to tell lord Rayne. Akara stopped Thule just around the corner from the entrance to the tomb, which also served as the jedi strike force's meeting place. The two dueled, and soon it was apparent that Akara was more profiecent in lightsaber combat. Akara disarmed his opponent with a uppercut and, as Thule continued to attack with the force, was forced to kill the sith. As he slid down the wall, Thule spoke his last words. "Hah! You know my brother will never give up hunting you, Vallus!" Later, as the scene was looked back upon by Akara, jedi masters Luke Skywalker and Po Rulok and jedi archivist Tionne, it was said that had Thule succeded in both killing Vallus and telling Rayne, the battle would have been lost.
