"Hello, hello, and welcome to Florrum!"
―Hondo Ohnaka[13]

Florrum was a sulfurous desert planet located in the Florrum system, within the Sertar sector of the galaxy's Outer Rim Territories. During the Clone Wars, it was the location of a pirate gang led by Hondo Ohnaka. Florrum was briefly held by the Confederacy of Independent Systems before the forces of General Grievous were repelled by Ohnaka's forces and the Jedi.


"If you need transport, the nearest planet is Florrum. It's six parsecs away."
"Is it civilized?"
"That depends on your definition of civilized."
―Hondo Ohnaka offers a stranded Count Dooku passage off Vanqor[5]

Florrum was a hot and dry[7] desert planet in the Outer Rim Territories,[5] in grid square R-5 on the Standard Galactic Grid.[6] In addition to the barren rocky deserts and dustbowls[7] that covered the planet, Florrum also possessed geological features such as canyons and sulfuric geysers,[9] the later of which could be found in acid flats.[7] It was located six parsecs away from the planet Vanqor.[5]


"First, you lose this system, and Grievous comes in and destroys my entire stronghold, leaving me here to just rummage through the leftovers of my once-great empire."
―Hondo Ohnaka, to Obi-Wan Kenobi[2]

A Weequay pirate gang led by Hondo Ohnaka was headquartered on Florrum. After their capture of Count Dooku on Vanqor, they returned to the planet with the Sith Lord. Later it was there that Ohnaka captured Jedi Knights Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker after they came to check that Dooku was there to pay the ransom for him. They escaped soon after, with the help of Representative Binks, Commander Stone and several clone troopers. The planet was left in peace by the Republic,[5] but, later in the war, Dooku sent Separatist forces led by General Grievous to destroy Hondo's complex.[10]
