The Codia system was located in the freestanding subsectors of[2] the Mid Rim.[1] It contained the terrestrial,[4] moss-covered[6] natural satellite known as the Codian Moon.[4]

Several ranches on the Codian Moon bred reeksmammals native to the Hutt Space planet Ylesia. Initially, the reeks were bred as beasts of burden;[7] by 22 BBY,[8] however, the creatures began to see use in gladiatorial arenas,[7] such as[5] the Petranaki arena on the Outer Rim Territories planet Geonosis.[9]

Shortly after the acquisition of the planet Ukio by the Commerce Guild during the Clone Wars, the Codia system was featured on a galactic map displayed on a viewscreen at a facility run by Passel Argente, the Magistrate[10] of the Corporate Alliance.[11] By 20 BBY, the Codian Moon remained undecided on its affiliation to either of the opposing factions of the conflict, the Galactic Republic and the Confederacy of Independent Systems.[12] The population of the Codia system numbered less than one million around 25 ABY.[3]

Behind the scenes[]

The 2003 reference book Inside the Worlds of Star Wars: Attack of the Clones by Simon Beecroft was the first[13] of a series of sources that depict the Codia system, labeled as "Codian Moon," on maps of the galaxy.[12][14] In those maps, the Codian Moon was placed in the trailing direction from the world Cerea.[12][13][14]

In contrast, the 2006 book The New Essential Guide to Alien Species claimed that the Codian Moon was a natural satellite of Ylesia.[7] That statement contradicted the prior map placement of the moon,[12][13][14] with Ylesia being depicted on several maps as part of Hutt Space, on the opposite side of the galaxy.[12][15] It also created a continuity problem due to the 1997 novel The Paradise Snare explicitly noting that Ylesia had no moons.[16]

The information from The New Essential Guide to Alien Species was definitively overridden by the 2009 reference book The Essential Atlas, which named the Codia system and placed it in grid square H-15, trailing from the Cerean system[3]—a placement that is in agreement with the information from the pre-2006 sources.[12][13][14]

The Clone Wars: Act on Instinct, a webcomic authored by Pablo Hidalgo and released on StarWars.com[10] over the span of the 2009[17]2010[18] second season of the Star Wars: The Clone Wars television series,[17] featured the first appearance of the Codia system.[10]

Since Star Wars: Episode II Attack of the Clones, the events of which The New Essential Chronology dates to 22 BBY, depicts a reek being used in the Petranaki arena on Geonosis in such a way, the breeding of reeks for combat purposes must have begun by that date.
