Corsin was a planet in the Greater Plooriod Cluster. It was a beautiful planet known for its love of life and for its swoop races, such as the Plooriod 940. The local year was approximately 0.93 standard years long, consisting of about 343 standard days and a half.
The aquatic Selligore made its home along the shallow coastal waters of the temperate and tropical zones of Corsin. While the pre-Imperial regime maintained large preserves for the massive animals, the New Order-friendly government authorized development of some of those areas, starving the Selligores there and, in some cases, forcing them to attack sentients.
Around 30,000 BBY during the Pre-Republic era, Corsin was ruled by the space-faring Rakata. Using Force-based hyperdrives, they traveled to many worlds around the galaxy that possessed significant signatures in the Force, uniting them to form the Rakatan Infinite Empire. After five thousand years of galactic dominance, the Rakata retreated to their homeworld following the outbreak of a plague.
Corsin was raided by the Mandalorian Neo-Crusaders during the Mandalorian Wars. During the Cold War between the Galactic Republic and the Sith Empire, a shuttle carrying the famous bioanalyst Ronda crashed on Corsin. Fellow scientists later recovered specimens from his latest research at the crash site.
The planet was inhabited by at least 1010 BBY, when Nalia Adollu was born in its tropical regions; she was later chosen for Jedi training. During the New Sith Wars, the planet was the site of a battle won by the Jedi.
The planet remained loyal to the Republic during the Clone Wars. The planet was subjugated by the Galactic Empire, which deposed the existing government and replaced it with a New Order regime that dispensed with civil rights and placed the entire population under a police state. Journalist Voren Na'al was present when this occurred, leading him ultimately to join the Rebellion.
In 5 ABY, the New Republic sent a task force to liberate Corsin in order to secure a front on the Hydian Way, but they were defeated by Grand Admiral Zsinj. The planet was eventually freed two years later and annexed by the Empire. Corsin stayed under Imperial control until the final death of the Emperor, in 11 ABY.
