Donadus was an astronomical object[2] located in the Donadus system, a part of the Inner Rim's Bamula sector.[1] It shared its name with the sentient species Donadi.[3]

The pirate group[4] known as the Chorran shipjackers operated out of Donadus.[2] At some point between 17 BBY and 0 ABY,[5] 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.[2]

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.[2] The 2009 reference book The Essential Atlas placed the Donadus system, and therefore the celestial body Donadus, within grid square J-13.[6]

  5. WizardsoftheCoast.png "The Hunt Within: Valance's Tale: Part 2" on Wizards.com (original article link, content now obsolete; backup link) 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 StarWars.com Star Wars: The Essential Guide to Warfare Author's Cut, Part 11: Serving the Empire on StarWars.com (article) (backup link) dates the assault on Doniphon to 17 BBY, Valance must therefore have become a bounty hunter at some point between those two dates.
