- "Esoomians are among the best hired muscle in the galaxy, and now that the Imperials are no longer quarantining their planet, they are free to spread out and find work."
- ―Airen Cracken
Esooma was a planet located in the Esooma system, within the Sprizen sector of the galaxy's Outer Rim Territories. It was the homeworld of the sentient Esoomian species, who were considered to be among the best hired muscle in the galaxy. Esooma was quarantined by the Galactic Empire, preventing the Esoomians from leaving their homeworld, up until around the year 7 ABY, after which they were free to depart and find work. An Esoomian known as Tantor first left Esooma when he was hired as an enforcer for a pirate ship.
Behind the scenes
Esooma was originally created for Wanted by Cracken, supplement written by Louis J. Prosperi for Star Wars: The Roleplaying Game and published in 1995. The Essential Atlas, 2009 a reference book written by Jason Fry and Daniel Wallace, placed the Esooma system, and therefore Esooma itself, in grid square N-5.
