"An aristocrat married into the powerful Santhe family of Lianna, Santhe-Caltra studied at the Royal Academy of Arts on Atrisia, earning accolades for her work celebrating the Imperial armed forces."
A History of Persuasive Art in the Galaxy[2]

Atrisia was a terrestrial astronomical object. Its surface featured dense brush.[1] The Atrisian mythology included the demigod of disguise known as Wapoe.[4] The celestial body also shared its name with the Atrisian Basic language[2] and the Atrisian Emperors, rulers of[3] the Core Worlds astronomical object[5] Kitel Phard.[3]

During the reign of the Galactic Empire, Atrisia was the site of the Royal Academy of Arts. The aristocrat Resinu Santhe-Caltra was enrolled at academy at that time, a fact which was eventually mentioned in the publication A History of Persuasive Art in the Galaxy.[2] The ancestors of the human Vonreg family, which was affiliated with the Empire, were rumored to have hailed from Atrisia.[6]

The human Calum Gram worked as a search and rescue pilot for the Wilderness Preserve service on Atrisia at some point before joining the Rebel Alliance[1] and participating in the Battle of Scarif[7] in 0 BBY.[8] On Atrisia, Gram piloted an airspeeder through the dense vegetation and thus developed precision flying skills.[1]

Behind the scenes[]

Atrisia was first properly reintroduced in canon in the 2016 book Star Wars Propaganda: A History of Persuasive Art in the Galaxy.

In the new Star Wars canon, Atrisia was first indirectly mentioned in the[4] September 27, 2016[9] re-issue[4] of the 2005 reference book Star Wars: Complete Locations.[10] In the book,[4] in a re-issued section from James Luceno's 2004 reference book Inside the Worlds of Star Wars Trilogy,[11] Atrisia was introduced via a mention of the Atrisian demigod Wapoe.[4] The astronomical object was first properly identified in Star Wars Propaganda: A History of Persuasive Art in the Galaxy, a book authored by Pablo Hidalgo[2] and published on October 25, 2016.[12]

In the Star Wars Legends continuity, Atrisia was introduced in the Imperial Sourcebook, a 1989 supplement written by Greg Gorden for West End Games' Star Wars: The Roleplaying Game.[13] The 2009 reference book The Essential Atlas by Daniel Wallace established that "Kitel Phard,"[14] an astronomical object first mentioned by Timothy O'Brien in the article "From the Files of Corellia Antilles" as part of the August 1997 Star Wars Adventure Journal 14,[15] was in fact an alternate name for Atrisia.[14] Since then, Kitel Phard has also been reintroduced in the current canon, but no connection between it and Atrisia has been established.[5]
