The Albarrio sector was a sector of the galaxy's Outer Rim Territories. It contained the Albarrio system where the planet Scipio was located. During the Clone Wars the planet was the headquarters of the InterGalactic Banking Clan which led to a battle taking place there between the Galactic Republic and the Confederacy of Independent Systems.
Behind the scenesEdit
The Albarrio sector was first mentioned in Riders of the Maelstrom, a Star Wars Legends supplement written by Ray Winninger for Star Wars: The Roleplaying Game by West End Games. In the Legends reference book The Essential Atlas the sector was placed in the Outer Rim Territories; however, when the Albarrio sector was confirmed to be canon by the reference book Ultimate Star Wars it was accidentally placed within the Core Worlds region instead. That was the result of an editing mistake, however, rather than a change in the sector's location.

Notes and referencesEdit
- ↑ 1.0 1.1 Star Wars: Galactic Atlas places Scipio in the Outer Rim Territories. As Scipio is located in the Albarrio sector, as stated by Ultimate Star Wars, the Albarrio sector must also be located in the Outer Rim Territories.

- ↑ "To better fit the storytelling. Scipio was placed in the Core when nothing was known about it other than that it was the homeworld of Rush Clovis. A Core placement seemed to fit based on that, though it wasn't much to go on. When Clone Wars gave us stories actually set on Scipio, we saw that it was a critical IGBC world with a significant Muun presence, so it was moved to a location in the ORT near Muunilinst. Which makes *far* more sense than the Core. This change was actually made for Ultimate Star Wars -- note it says Scipio is in Albarrio sector, which is in the ORT. The region wasn't changed because of an editing mistake."
