"It's kind of pretty from up here."
"Sure, if you like depressing industrial space junk."

Bracca was an inhospitable junkyard planet located in the galaxy's Mid Rim. Located close to various hyperspace routes, Bracca's strategic importance made it the site of a campaign during the Clone Wars. During the reign of the Galactic Empire, the Scrapper Guild operated on the planet, breaking down starship wreckage and selling the components to the Empire.[3]


The shipbreaking yard on Bracca

Bracca was a poor Mid Rim world dominated by rocky plains. Large swathes of the planet's surface were comprised of junkyards, with countless decommissioned starships and other machinery spread haphazardly, awaiting destruction. It was orbited by one moon.[1]

Given the generally inhospitable nature of the world, the majority of its population was comprised of scrappers, who made their living breaking down and selling the trash left on the world. The Scrapper Guild used to fix and build starships, hiring many engineers, but by the fifth year of the Imperial Era, engineers had turned into scrappers.[1] Nearly all services on Bracca were operated by the Scrapper Guild. Credits earned in a workday were quickly recouped by the Guild due to the prices for food, lodging, and other necessities.[6]

The scrappers often tipped platforms full of junk into the Ibdis Maw and harvested the waste products for profit.[4]

Via the Randon Run, Bracca was connected to Lantillies, on the Perlemian Trade Route, and Uyter.[2] The planet's spaceports exported supplies from the scrapyards to the Core Worlds; these supplies were delivered by an extensive system of high-speed transport trains criss-crossing Bracca's surface. The average shipment would pass through twenty-five checkpoints before reaching its final destination.[4]


Clone Wars[]

A sudden strike on Bracca was carried out by the Confederacy of Independent Systems weeks into the Clone Wars. The Galactic Republic sent a clone battalion led by newly-promoted Jedi Knight Cyruss Okent to respond to the attack.[7]

During the final days of the Clone Wars[1] in 19 BBY,[8] the Confederacy attempted to take control of Bracca from the Galactic Republic with the help of their Scrapper Guild sympathizers. The 13th Battalion, led by Jedi General Jaro Tapal and his Padawan Cal Kestis, was sent to secure the world and were successful in their mission. Tapal and Kestis were stationed above Bracca in their Venator-class Star Destroyer Albedo Brave, but following Order 66, Tapal was killed and Kestis crash-landed on Bracca. Kestis spent the next five years in Bracca avoiding the Empire's attention.[1]

Imperial Era[]

"I think it's time someone came forward. I, uh..., I-I've been working on this heap a long time. Way before the war. We refit and rebuild ships. Best in the galaxy. Then came the Empire. And engineers...became scrappers. The workers - just started getting worked. But we all know the truth. We're just...afraid to say it. To the Empire...we're all just expendable."

Shortly after the formation of the Galactic Empire[5] in 19 BBY,[9] the fugitive clone troopers Captain Rex and Clone Force 99 travelled to Bracca in order to utilize the medical amenities of a Jedi cruiser to remove the so-called "Bad Batch's" inhibitor chips, as the devices had been used to force the clone army to turn on the Jedi and serve the Empire.[5] In the aftermath, the location of the so-called "Bad Batch" was leaked to the Empire by a Scrapper Guild patrol, leading to a skirmish between them and Imperial forces, and the kidnapping of the young clone Omega during the battle by notorious bounty hunter Cad Bane.[10]

By the time of the Empire, the planet was controlled by the Scrapper Guild. For working-class people, this could be their only source of credits. It wasn't uncommon for workers to fall to their death whilst scrapping.[1]

Five years after the rise of the Empire, Kestis was on Bracca still awaiting word from the Jedi Order. After a workplace accident forced Kestis to use the Force to save his co-worker and friend Prauf, the Inquisitorius was alerted to his presence. Arriving on Bracca, the Second Sister and Ninth Sister questioned several of the Scrappers for the whereabouts of the Jedi. When Prauf stood up to them, he was executed by the Second Sister, forcing Cal to flee with the help of former Jedi Knight Cere Junda and Latero pilot Greez Dritus.[1]

Rise of the First Order[]

"Even if we get to Coronet City and Poe and Charth and whoever are able to lift a few First Order ships, it's not enough."
"I agree. That's why I want you to go to Bracca. Put a team together. Take whoever you need and go get as many starfighters as you can."
―Shriv Surgav and Leia Organa[4]

Decades later, as war sparked up and the New Republic was destroyed, the First Order started sending claimed Republic starships for decommissioning at Bracca. General Leia Organa ordered a team there led by Shriv Suurgav to recover starships. The team, codenamed Dross Squadron, infiltrated the Scrapper Guild, but were confronted by stormtroopers. With the help of locals, they stole several X-wing starfighters, but at the loss of one of their pilots, Sanrec Stronghammer.[4]


The Scrapper Guild was found on the planet, employing many beings in their junkyard business. Members of their workforce belonged to a variety of species, including humans and Abednedos.[1] At least one dianoga lived among the wreckage of the planet, and inhabited the murky waters that sat beneath the scrap of a decommissioned Venator-class Star Destroyer.[5]

Behind the scenes[]

Bracca was created for the 2019 video game Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, developed by Respawn Entertainment.[1] Prior to the game's release, it appeared in the novel Resistance Reborn, written by Rebecca Roanhorse and published in 2019.[4] The design of Bracca was intended to briefly illustrate where Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order sat on the Star Wars timeline.[6]

  9. Star Wars: The Bad Batch begins with Order 66, an event that Star Wars: Galactic Atlas dates to 19 BBY. Battlefront: Twilight Company establishes that the Stormtrooper Corps was founded by clone commandos, an event that occured shortly before and during the fourteenth episode, "War-Mantle." Because Star Wars: Absolutely Everything You Need to Know dates the formation of the corps to nineteen years before the Battle of Yavin, an event that Galactic Atlas dates to 0 BBY, the Stormtrooper Corps was founded in 19 BBY, and "War-Mantle" takes place in the same year. "Return to Kamino" and "Kamino Lost" take place shortly afterwards, so they take place in approximately the same year.
