Bafwizzy was the largest and greenest of the nine moons of the planet Chad, which was located in the Chad system, a part of the Jospro sector[1] in the Slice portion of[2] the Outer Rim Territories. Despite being the largest of Chad's moons,[1] Bafwizzy was still small.[4] Along with the other moons, Bafwizzy contributed to the planet's complex system of tides. The combination of the tides with groundquakes could cause tsunamis.[1]

During one such event, the Chadran disaster,[5] which occurred on an afternoon[1] at some point by 0 BBY,[6] Bafwizzy was overhead and bright, even though it was still daytime.[1] In 5 ABY,[7] when Rebels Han Solo and Leia Organa approached Chad in their starship, the Millennium Falcon, the pair could see all nine of Chad's moons, which appeared as small specks of light.[4]

Behind the scenes[]

The nine moons of Chad were first mentioned in the 1989 West End Games sourcebook Galaxy Guide 4: Alien Races, published as part of Star Wars: The Roleplaying Game and written by Troy Denning.[8] The moons made their first full appearance in Queen of the Empire, a 1993 novel by Paul and Hollace Davids as part of the Jedi Prince series.[4] Bafwizzy was first identified by name and expounded upon in the 2015 Fantasy Flight Games sourcebook Stay on Target as part of the Star Wars: Age of Rebellion roleplaying game.[1] The 2009 reference book The Essential Atlas placed the Chad system, and therefore Bafwizzy, in grid square R-7.[3]
