"Observation holocam footage depicts a squad of Cloud-Rider marauders speeding from a target site. The object of their raid was an Imperial medical spice cache on Gargon."
―Exantor Divo, Scum and Villainy: Case Files on the Galaxy's Most Notorious[src]

Gargon was a mountainous[1] planet. It was settled by the Old Mandalorians, who were exiled from their homeworld of Mandalore by the pacifistic New Mandalorians after a civil war[2] in approximately 42 BBY.[3] On Gargon, they lived as mercenaries working for the highest bidder, as Mandalorians had done for millennia.[2]

In 7966 C.R.C., the marauder Enfys Nest and her Cloud-Riders raided an Imperial medical spice cache on Gargon, stealing the medicinally processed spice but leaving behind the potentially more valuable raw spice.[1] After the raid, the Galactic Empire began to piece together information that Enfys Nest was amassing resources to fund a rebel uprising.[4] During the New Republic Era, a file on the Gargon raid was included in Scum and Villainy: Case Files on the Galaxy's Most Notorious, a collection of case files compiled by Commissioner Exantor Divo, head of law enforcement on the planet Hosnian Prime.[1]

Behind the scenes[]

Gargon was first mentioned in the new Star Wars canon in Friends Like These, a 2016 adventure supplement for the Star Wars: Age of Rebellion roleplaying game published by Fantasy Flight Games.[2] It was first visually depicted in an illustration by Lucas Parolin from the 2018 Star Wars: Scum and Villainy: Case Files on the Galaxy's Most Notorious, written by Pablo Hidalgo.[1] Gargon was originally created by James Kahn for the 1983 Star Wars Legends novelization of the 1983 film Star Wars: Episode VI Return of the Jedi.[5]

  3. According to The Official Star Wars Fact File Part 98 (MAN 1-4, Mandalore), the Mandalorian Civil War took place around 20 years before the Clone Wars. As Star Wars: Galactic Atlas dates the beginning of the Clone Wars to the year 22 BBY, it can be determined that the Mandalorian Civil War took place around 42 BBY.
