"That's the vault Cere mentioned."
―Cal Kestis[1]

The Bogano Vault, also known as the Ancient Vault, the Zeffo Vault, or simply the Vault, was a vault constructed by the Zeffo species on Bogano. The Vault was secured using ancient Zeffo technology and required both a Zeffo artifact known as an astrium and strength in the Force to open.


Built centuries before the Clone Wars, the Vault of Bogano was constructed out of karnite, a mineral rich stone mined from the planet's surface. The interior walls of the monolithic structure were decorated with inscriptions etched into the metallic plating which lined the walls. The Vaults interior was filled with ancient, fragile offering vessels, left by pilgrims in the distant past. The Vault was only accessible by Force-sensitives.[1]

The Jedi Master Eno Cordova discovered the Vault while studying the Zeffo, who had long been extinct. The Vault required someone strong in the Force and equipped with a Zeffo artifact called an astrium to open. Cordova later used the Vault to hide a holocron containing a list of Force-sensitive children in the event that the Jedi Order needed to be rebuilt. Several years after Order 66, Cere Junda brought former Jedi Padawan Cal Kestis to the Vault, hoping to use the holocron to rebuild the Jedi Order.[1]

Once Cal returned to the planet with the astrium from Dathomir, he placed the astrium in the vault, causing him to see a vision of Padawans he was training. The Empire then attacked and Cal appeared to be an Inquisitor with the younglings being tortured to surrender. Cal awoke and grabbed the holocron only to see the Second Sister before him. They engaged in a duel with Cal eventually stealing her lightsaber. This caused him to have a echo of her past trauma. Trilla made off with the holocron leaving behind a detachment of stormtroopers to deal with Cal.[1]

During the Galactic Civil War, the Bogano Vault was visited by the rebels Luke Skywalker and Leia Organa, who were investigating planets that could potentially host a rebel base. The discovery of stormtroopers on the planet alerted the pair to the fact that the Empire had discovered the planet.[2]
