"The Valahari build some of the best ships in the galaxy."
Anakin Skywalker.

Valahari was a planet that claimed neutrality in the Clone Wars, but gave newer and advanced ships to the Confederacy of Independent Systems that gave the CIS an advantage over the Galactic Republic.[1]

The people of Valahari had a strong reputation for being some of the best starfighter engineers in the galaxy.

Geology, geography, flora & fauna

Valahari's landscape included mountains, rivers, and canyons. In 22 BBY, Anakin Skywalker engaged in a podrace with Tofen Vane through a canyon. Valahari's plant life included dense groupings of trees.[1]

History

Obi-Wan Kenobi visited the planet during his apprenticeship under Qui-Gon Jinn. During that time, he became acquainted with the House of Vane. At least ten years later, Kenobi revisited the planet along with fellow Jedi Knight Anakin Skywalker on a diplomatic mission to try to convince the planet to stop aiding the Separatists through their continued manufacture of advanced starfighters. Count Dooku attended the discussion over dinner, providing counterpoints to the Jedi's accusations against the Confederacy. Harko Vane, the Viscount of Valahari, declined to take the Republic's side in the Clone Wars. As a result, the Republic blockaded the planet.

When several unarmed ships attempted to leave Valahari, Kenobi warned Vane that if the ships continued any further, they would be disabled and boarded. Before either side could make a move, Vane's ship exploded as a result of prior sabotage by Asajj Ventress.[2] Although flight recorders proved that the explosion was not a result of Republic aggression, the Republic information was not considered trustworthy. This event caused the outraged populace of Valahari to side with the Confederacy.[1]
