Arami was an Outer Rim Territories planet located in the Galov sector. A part of the area dominated by the Hutt species as well as controlled by the Galactic Empire, Arami was one of three worlds where the Hutt holiday known as Boonta's Eve was celebrated, with the festivities including the Boonta Races.


Arami was a terrestrial planet[3] located in the Arami system, a part of the Galov sector[1] in the Slice portion of[2] the Outer Rim Territories.[1] It was situated on the super-hyperroute known as the Triellus Trade Route,[2] which linked it to the Opoku system as well as the Syvris system in the Al'Nasrl sector.[5]


Space surrounding Arami was explored between 5000 BBY and 3000 BBY.[2] By the time of the first campaigns of the Clone Wars in 22 BBY, the planet fell within the borders of the sphere of influence of the Hutt species, and the Republic's Fourteenth Sector Army was charged with engaging the forces of the Confederacy of Independent Systems in Arami's vicinity. The planet was located in the territory controlled by the Galactic Empire by 17 BBY.[4]


During the final decades of the Galactic Republic's existence, it was one of the three worlds—the others being[3] the Arkanis sector's[6] Tatooine and Boonta[3] in the Tharin sector[6]—where the annual Hutt holiday known as Boonta's Eve was celebrated. The holiday commemorated the Hutt Boonta Hestilic Shad'ruu's[3] ancient[7] victory over the Parliament of Moralan,[3] and the festivites included the Boonta Races.[8] Around 25 ABY, the population of the Arami system numbered between one billion and ten billion.[2]

Behind the scenes[]

Arami was first mentioned in "Star Wars Droids: The Adventures of R2-D2 and C-3PO," a roleplaying source article authored by Rich Handley and Abel G. Peña for use with the Wizards of the Coast Star Wars Roleplaying Game and published in the 170th issue of the Polyhedron magazine[9] by June 3, 2004.[10] The 2009 reference book The Essential Atlas placed the Arami system, and therefore Arami itself, in grid square T-13.[2]
