Devil's Asteroid[3] was an Outer Rim Territories[1] asteroid[3] located within the star system of the same name.[1]

Behind the scenes[]

Devil's Asteroid was first mentioned in the 1993 book Monsters and Aliens from George Lucas, a publication that combines creature designs and photographs from various projects of George Lucas, creator of the Star Wars franchise, with original text by Bob Carrau.[3] Lucasfilm employee Leland Chee, who maintains the Holocron continuity database, has indicated that information contained in the book is non-canonical[4] with respect to the Star Wars Legends continuity.[5]

However, Jason Fry,[6] co-author of the 2009 reference book The Essential Atlas,[2] has stated that the star systems listed in the book's Appendix section are named after the most prominent planets or celestial bodies located in those systems. This article therefore considers the existence of Devil's Asteroid to be canonical with respect to the Legends continuity.[6] The Essential Atlas placed the Devil's Asteroid system in grid square O-2.[2]
