Coyerti was a planet in the Mid Rim, and was the home of the Coyerti species. Due to its rich plant and animal life, it served as a military research outpost for biological weapons. It was the location of a conflict between the Rebel Alliance and the Galactic Empire during the Galactic Civil War. Prior to being arrested on the Five Points system, Jyn Erso spent time bouncing around the Mid Rim on planets such as Coyerti and Cerea before settling on Takodana for almost a year.
History[edit | edit source]
Pre-Clone Wars[edit | edit source]
Coyerti was the subject of some debate among members of the Galactic Senate during the years prior to the Clone Wars. It was argued a shipping lane should be opened between Coyerti and Malastare to transport permacrete.
Galactic Civil War[edit | edit source]
In 3 ABY, the Rebel Alliance's 61st Mobile Infantry attacked the Imperial biochemical facilities on the planet during the Mid Rim Retreat. The attack was also motivated by the fact that the Coyerti—the native species—were in the midst of their breeding season, which rendered them essentially defenseless. The 61st successfully destroyed the Imperial facilities, allowing them to escape to the Mid Rim, and saved the Coyerti from destruction at the hands of the Imperials.
