Celsor 3 was an ice moon located in the galaxy. Its primary terrain was snow-topped ice pillars and icy ground. It was uninhabited, save for the native jakoosks, who spent most of their time slumbering. The moon was visited by the inhabitants of the Colossus during the war between the First Order and Resistance. Running from the First Order and looking for food, the Warbird gang disembarked from the Colossus to hunt a local jakoosk as a source of food for the station. Though they were unsuccessful, Kazuda Xiono and Torra Doza returned to the moon and managed to kill the beast.
A moon located in the galaxy, the frigid Celsor 3 was a small, uninhabited world with a picturesque landscape covered in ice and snow and dotted with giant ice pillars blanketed in fog. The only creature known to survive on the moon was the jakoosk, a massive flying creature with armored plates that could absorb blaster fire. The moon's atmosphere was breathable for humans, Weequays, Trandoshans, Nikto, Hassks, and Gamorreans.
After its departure from the Ileenium system, the supertanker fuel depot Colossus passed near Celsor 3. New Republic and Rebel veteran Jarek Yeager chose it as a location for training exercises after being placed in command of the Ace Squadron, the platform's main defenders. During one of their training exercises, the Aces were attacked by a jakoosk awakened by their flying through the pillars, and Yeager was nearly eaten before the Aces managed to shake his starfighter free by shooting one of the pillars so it collapsed onto the creature.
Later, the pirates of the Warbird gang went to the moon in an attempt to hunt the jakoosk for its meat, as the Colossus had run out of food and the Warbirds' leader, Kragan Gorr, saw an opportunity to try and undermine Captain Imanuel Doza's authority. However, the pirates were unprepared for the size of the creature and were eventually forced to retreat. Kazuda Xiono and Torra Doza, who had been monitoring the pirates, decided to return to Celsor 3 shortly thereafter and try to hunt the creature themselves by positioning a blaster cannon on the ground to shoot the jakoosk in its vulnerable belly. Despite some problems caused by Torra's pet Buggles stowing away in the Fireball and interference from the stranded pirates Snarl and Drell, Xiono and Torra's mission was successful, leaving the Colossus with enough food supplies to feed the entire platform for quite some time.
