The Dawferim Selfhood States was a protective alliance of planets formed by the Dawferim against their neighbors, the Botor Enclave, with whom they had been feuding for the past five hundred years. The alliance came about as a result of the power vacuum caused by the defeat suffered by the Galactic Empire at the Battle of Endor.

Behind the scenesEdit

The full name of this government was first mentioned in the pages of the Dark Empire Sourcebook, where it was referred to as the "Dawferm Selfhood States,"[1] though its citizens were earlier called the "Dawferim."[2] Later sources, such as the Star Wars Encyclopedia and A Guide to the Star Wars Universe, Third Edition, Revised and Expanded, continued to use "Dawferm Selfhood States" to refer to the government.[3][4] The government's name was changed to "Dawferim Selfhood States" in the The Complete Star Wars Encyclopedia.[5]

In his blog, Daniel Wallace stated that he and Jason Fry planned to make a reference to the "Dawferm Selfhood States" as well as the Botor Enclave in The Essential Atlas.[6]
