The Claer system was located in the Sern sector,[1] a part of the Southern Core portion of[2] the Colonies.[1] The star system contained the astronomical object Clær, which was the site of an exclusive preparatory academy[3] at some point between 5 BBY and 0 BBY.[4]

Behind the scenes[]

The Claer system was first mentioned in the 2009 reference book The Essential Atlas, written by Jason Fry and Daniel Wallace, which placed the system in grid square L-13.[2]

  4. Cracken's Rebel Operatives states that Rivoche Tarkin was sent by her uncle Wilhuff to attend the preparatory academy on Clær following the death of Rivoche's father, Gideon Tarkin. The Complete Star Wars Encyclopedia, Vol. III, p. 220 ("Tarkin, Gideon") establishes that Gideon died five years before the Battle of Yavin, which corresponds to 5 BBY, according to The New Essential Chronology. As The New Essential Chronology also establishes that Wilhuff Tarkin perished in 0 BBY, Rivoche's enrollment at the Clær academy must have taken place sometime between those two dates.
