"Did you ever hear of the clay warriors of Zardossa Stix?"
"Sure. The ancient statues of a fallen army. The Zardossan legends claimed that the statues were the only things keeping the warriors dead—that if they were ever destroyed, the army would spring back to life."
―Cohmac Vitus and Orla Jareni[1]

The clay warriors of Zardossa Stix were a set of clay statues from[1] the moon[2] Zardossa Stix. Representations of an ancient fallen army, the statues, according to Zardossan legend, were the only reason the warriors remained dead, and they would return to life if the statues were ever destroyed.[1]

Around 232 BBY,[3] Jedi Master Cohmac Vitus, Jedi Knight Orla Jareni, and Padawan Reath Silas discovered a set of four statues which, initially unbeknownst to them, held the sentient carnivorous plants known as the Drengir in stasis. Upon beginning to understand the statues' true purpose, Vitus was reminded of the clay warriors and brought them up to Jareni, who had also heard the legends about them.[1]

Behind the scenes[]

The clay warriors of Zardossa Stix were mentioned in the 2021 young-adult novel The High Republic: Into the Dark, written by Claudia Gray as part of the Star Wars: The High Republic series.[1]
