- "Salvage the remaining arms and withdraw the army. Bring them to Agamar."
- ―Count Dooku, to General Kalani after the Battle of Onderon
Agamar was a barren, rocky planet located in the Agamar system within the Outer Rim Territories of the galaxy in grid coordinates M-5. During the Clone Wars, Separatist General Kalani was ordered by Count Dooku to retreat from Onderon to Agamar following the Separatist defeat on Onderon. Later during the Galactic Civil War against the Galactic Empire, the rebel cell known as the Spectres confronted Kalani on Agamar, eventually teaming up to defeat the Empire, a mutual opponent.
Description[edit | edit source]

History[edit | edit source]
Clone Wars[edit | edit source]
In 20 BBY, the third year of the Clone Wars, the planet was under the control of the Confederacy of Independent Systems. Count Dooku ordered General Kalani to retreat to Agamar following his defeat at the Onderonian Civil War to the Onderon rebels. Because of Kalani's override of the droid shutdown signal, an isolated Separatist holdout remained on the planet until well into the era of the Galactic Empire. Izak Anzio, a ranger who enlisted in the Imperial Academy program, was native to Agamar.
Reign of the Empire[edit | edit source]
During the Galactic Civil War, the former Clone Captain Rex and the Spectres traveled to Agamar to salvage proton bombs for Phoenix Cell. Rex along with Kanan Jarrus, Ezra Bridger, and Garazeb Orrelios were quickly captured by Kalani and his B1-series battle droids. Kalani forced the rebels to take part in a combat simulation against his Separatist holdout in order to end the Clone Wars as a Separatist victory. The rebels managed to survive the battle droids and Ezra managed to convince Kalani and Rex to make peace. The rebels and Separatist droids then joined forces to escape an Imperial assault force with the help of Chopper. After escaping the planet in separate Sheathipede-class transport shuttles both Rex and Kalani agreed it to be the true end to the war. The droid calculated the rebels had less than a one percent chance to stage a successful rebellion against the Empire, and parted ways from them.
Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]
Agamar first appeared in The Farlander Papers, a companion book written by Rusel DeMaria that was included in the limited edition version of the 1993 Star Wars Legends video game Star Wars: X-Wing.
