- "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
Atrisia was a terrestrial astronomical object. Its surface featured dense brush. The Atrisian mythology included the demigod of disguise known as Wapoe. The celestial body also shared its name with the Atrisian Basic language and the Atrisian Emperors, rulers of the Core Worlds astronomical object Kitel Phard.
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. 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 and participating in the Battle of Scarif. On Atrisia, Gram piloted an airspeeder through the dense vegetation and thus developed precision flying skills.
Behind the scenesEdit
In the current Star Wars canon, Atrisia was first indirectly mentioned in the September 27, 2016 re-issue of the 2005 reference book Star Wars: Complete Locations. In the book, in a re-issued section from James Luceno's 2004 reference book Inside the Worlds of Star Wars Trilogy, Atrisia was introduced via a mention of the Atrisian demigod Wapoe. 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 and published in October 25, 2016.
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. The 2009 reference book The Essential Atlas by Daniel Wallace established that "Kitel Phard," 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, was in fact an alternate name for Atrisia. Since then, Kitel Phard has also been reintroduced in the current canon, but no connection between it and Atrisia has been established.
