The pirate group known as the Chorran shipjackers operated out of Donadus. At some point between 17 BBY and 0 ABY, the Human bounty hunter Beilert Valance led a group of mercenaries in routing the Donadus-based pirates, a mission that helped Valance attain the status of an elite hunter.
Behind the scenes
Donadus was first mentioned in "The Hunt Within: Valance's Tale: Part 1," a Wizards.com roleplaying article containing "Mission 1: Raid on Picutorion," a scenario for use with the Wizards of the Coast Star Wars Miniatures game. The article was authored by Jason Fry and published on December 2, 2004. The 2009 reference book The Essential Atlas placed the Donadus system, and therefore the celestial body Donadus, within grid square J-13.
Notes and references
- Donadus system — Based on corresponding data for
- Before the Storm
- Star Wars: Edge of the Empire Core Rulebook
- establishes that Beilert Valance became a bounty hunter at some point between the assault on Doniphon and the attack on Anglebay Station. The scenario also dates the latter conflict to a few weeks after the events of Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope, which corresponds to 0 ABY, according to The New Essential Chronology. Since dates the assault on Doniphon to 17 BBY, Valance must therefore have become a bounty hunter at some point between those two dates.
