The Haserians were a sentient species,[1] native to the Haseria system in the Mid Rim.[2][3] Around 18 BBY,[4] a group of young Coruscanti Haserians played a game of shockball against a group of similar aged Rodians. The game attracted a large crowd, which included Jax Pavan, Dejah Duare and I-5YQ.[1]

Behind the scenes[]

The Haserians were created by Michael Reaves and were mentioned in passing in his novel Coruscant Nights II: Street of Shadows, published by Del Rey in 2008.[1] They were given a home star system in 2009's The Essential Atlas.[2]

(screenshot) Jason Fry, co-author of The Essential Atlas, stated his intention to create homeworlds for numerous species based on context implied from their names. Haseria appears to be one such case.
