"We didn't see them much in the Gulches."
―Hazram Namir, on Imperial TIE fighters[1]

The Gulches were a location on the[1] Outer Rim[2] planet Crucival. Hazram Namir, a soldier from a clan named the Malkhanis, was present in the Gulches for some time during the era of the Galactic Empire. When Namir spotted an Imperial TIE fighter on its way to a transmitter tower on Crucival[1] in 6 BBY,[3] the Malkhanis soldier murmured that he had not seen the starfighter much in the Gulches.[1]

Behind the scenes[]

The Gulches were mentioned in the 2015 novel Battlefront: Twilight Company, written by Alexander Freed.[1]
