The Elathan were a sentient species[1] native to the planet Elatha in the Stensen sector of the Outer Rim Territories.[2][3] They had their first contact with the wider galaxy between the years 500340 BBY, when they were visited by the Chu'unthor, a vast training ship operated by the Jedi Order. This first contact encounter garnered significant media attention across the galaxy.[1]

Jason Fry, co-author of The Essential Atlas, stated his intention to create homeworlds for numerous species based on context implied from their names. Elatha appears to be one such case.
