The Abar system was located in the Tragan Cluster,[1] a part of the New Territories portion of[2] the Outer Rim Territories.[1]

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]

The Abar system was introduced in the 2009 reference book The Essential Atlas, authored by Daniel Wallace and Jason Fry, which placed it in grid square N-5.[2] The name of the system built upon the mention of the location Abar-12 in the 1993 book Monsters and Aliens from George Lucas, a publication that combines creature designs and photographs from various projects of George Lucas, creator of the Star Wars franchise, with original text by Bob Carrau. In the book, Cylinder 14 at Vemu, Abar-12 is given as the mail address of the attorney known as The Wavering Oeklass.[3] Lucasfilm employee Leland Chee, who maintains the Holocron continuity database, has indicated that information contained in Monsters and Aliens from George Lucas is non-canonical[4] with respect to the Star Wars Legends continuity.[5]
