"Did you find the Afarathu Cult lair?"
―A Selonian diplomat, to a spacer[src]

The Afarathu Cave was a cave on the planet Corellia, located near the city of Doaba Guerfel. It was inhabited by the Afarathu extremists.

History[edit | edit source]

"The Afarathu are slime though. You won't be able to enter their cave without a fight."
Lieutenant Velso, to a spacer[src]

The cave served as headquarters for the Afarathu,[1] a Selonian terrorist sect which aimed to drive the Dralls and the Humans from the worlds of the Corellian system.[2] It was used for many years prior to the Battle of Yavin by the vicious Afarathu extremists to stage their strikes against Corellian interests.[1]

Very few knew the location of the cave; the former Follower of Nyax Lock Vlash was one of them.[3] After the Battle of Yavin, a Selonian diplomat in Doaba Guerfel recruited a spacer to fight the Afarathu Selonians at the cave.[4]

Circa 1 ABY,[5] some Afarathu fought Rebel Alliance forces on Corellia. Imperial Lieutenant Velso later dispatched a spacer to the cave in order to retrieve the ship destruct sequence codes of a Rebel Corellian Corvette possibly stolen by the Afarathu during the skirmish.[6] Around the same time, Imperial Lieutenant Sabol sent a spacer to the cave in order to retrieve a signed Alliance transport document.[7]

The same year, a spacer visited the cave and collected a Fallann hyper-rifle.[8]
