"Arthon, Hosra…hmm. Interesting. I'm no expert, but yes, these look like places Lor San Tekka might have gone."
―Leia Organa, to Poe Dameron[src]

Arthon was a terrestrial astronomical object that was inhabited by the sentient Ottegan species. It was one of several locations visited by the explorer Lor San Tekka, whose travels were recorded by the crime lord Grakkus the Hutt and later relayed to the Resistance.


An astronomical object with a terrestrial surface, Arthon was able to support Ottegan inhabitants.[1]


"This is what's next. We're still looking for Lor San Tekka. The problem is that he could be anywhere."
―Poe Dameron, to the Resistance's Black Squadron[src]
Poe and Grakkus

Poe Dameron received information on Lor San Tekka's visit to Arthon from Grakkus the Hutt.

The galactic explorer Lor San Tekka visited the Ottegans on Arthon[1] at some point by 34 ABY[2] but later disappeared into hiding.[1] Information provided to the Resistance pilot Poe Dameron by the Hutt crime lord Grakkus[3] later the same year[2] included a record of San Tekka's visits to both Arthon and[3] the planet[4] Hosra. Dameron passed on the information to the Resistance's General Leia Organa, who believed it to be true.[3] Dameron later wrote about the discovery of San Tekka's visit to Arthon in his flight log.[1]


Arthon was inhabited by members of the[1] sentient[5] Ottegan species. Lor San Tekka briefly lived among them during his travels.[1]

Behind the scenesEdit

Reintroduction into Star Wars canonEdit

Arthon first appeared in the 2016 video game LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens,[6] a non-canonical adaptation of the sequel trilogy film Star Wars: Episode VII The Force Awakens, developed by Traveller's Tales.[7] It was later mentioned in the 2016 canon comic Poe Dameron 6: Lockdown, Part III, written by Charles Soule.[3]

In the Star Wars Legends continuity, Arthon was a planet originally mentioned in "Scouting an Adventure Path," a 2002 web supplement for Wizards of the Coast's Star Wars Roleplaying Game, written by Owen K.C. Stephens.[8]

LEGO Star Wars: The Force AwakensEdit

Arthon, as it appears in LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens

In LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Arthon is featured in the level "Ottegan Assault," separate to the main levels that adapt the events of The Force Awakens. It is depicted as a terrestrial planet with a cloudy atmosphere, covered in landmasses and oceans. The planet is home to an elevated Ottegan enclave, located on the pinnacle of a large plant structure and inhabited by members of the Sacred Order of Ramulus.[6]

In the game, the Ottegans on Arthon assist the Resistance by mapping the location of the lost Jedi Master Luke Skywalker and giving the map to Lor San Tekka. The First Order, seeking to retrieve the map for itself, attacks the enclave while Resistance forces led by Admiral Gial Ackbar attempt to evacuate the Ottegans. In search of Lor San Tekka, the First Order warrior Kylo Ren and Captain Phasma pursue and shoot down a Resistance transport holding the leader of the enclave. Leading an assault on the ground to locate and interrogate the leader, Ren fights through Resistance troopers and local Ottegans. He successfully captures and interrogates the leader, discovering that Lor San Tekka is on the planet Jakku. As the forces of the First Order depart, the remnants of the enclave break apart behind them.[6]
