"Hey, one more thing. I'm being transferred off world to the officers' academy on Arkanis."
―Zare Leonis, to "Dev Morgan"[7]

Arkanis was a rainy[5] planet in the Arkanis sector[2] of the Outer Rim Territories,[1] and the throneworld of Leeya, the Empress of the Regency Worlds.[2] The Galactic Empire's officers academy was located there.[7] It was also the homeworld of Armitage Hux, one of the key leading figures in the First Order.[9]

The planet had at least one ocean and large cliffs on the coastline. The aquatic regions on Arkanis supported the planet's fishing industry. The Scaparus Port was a hub for fisherfolk and had shops with supplies that were catered for their business. Downpours happened on Arkanis at least 2-3 days a week, with the standard otherwise being a near-continuous drizzle. The appearance of sunshine was considered a rare event.[5]

During the Imperial Era, the Venator-class Star Destroyer Vensenor was operating in the planet's orbit as the Vensenor Flight Academy, which produced Imperial Navy officers and pilots, including a number of decorated soldiers.[2] Arkanis was also host to Project Harvester, an Imperial project regarding Force-sensitives. Zare Leonis's sister, Dhara, was sent here after she was identified as one by the Grand Inquisitor.[10]

Following the Galactic Empire's losses at the Battle of Endor, Arkanis remained under the Empire's control for a time, but the system was targeted by the New Republic, freed from the Empire's influence and claimed for the New Republic's side.[3] Arkanis eventually became a wealthy planet of the New Republic, aligned with the Centrists, and represented in the Galactic Senate by Senator Carise Sindian.[8]
