Hanofar was a terrestrial world located in the Hanofar system, a part of the Southern Core portion of the Colonies. During the early years of the Galactic Civil War, a conflict fought between the Galactic Empire and the Rebel Alliance, Hanofar was held by the Empire.
At some point during that time, a rebel group on Hanofar engaged in protests against Imperial taxation. The protests grew violent, leading to skirmishes with Imperial forces and several innocent bystanders getting injured. Among the hurt was the mother of the Human male Vess Kogo.
Behind the scenes
Hanofar was first mentioned in the Rebellion Era Sourcebook, a 2001 Wizards of the Coast supplement for the Star Wars Roleplaying Game. The 2009 reference book The Essential Atlas placed the Hanofar system, and therefore the world Hanofar, within grid square L-13.
