Hetzal Prime was a planet located in the Hetzal system of the Outer Rim Territories. The planet and its system were within the territory of the Galactic Republic during the High Republic Era, containing a total population of forty billion. It was also said that every crop in the galaxy could grow somewhere on the worlds of Hetzal. During that time, Hetzal Prime and the rest of its system were threatened by anomalies from hyperspace. The Jedi Master Avar Kriss, who was in charge of the combined Galactic Republic and Jedi Order effort to save the system,[1] later became known as the "Hero of Hetzal."[3]

Description[edit | edit source]

Hetzal was the main world of the Hetzal system in the Outer Rim Territories and was orbited by two inhabited moons, the Fruited and the Rooted. The entire system was committed to agricultural production, exporting food all over the Outer Rim and in some parts of the Inner Rim. During the High Republic Era, the planet attempted to grow bacta, a new substance supposed to revolutionize medicine, in plants.[1]

Home to billions inhabitants, Hetzal Prime was filled with rivers, lakes, and golden fields of cropland that grew honeyfruit, kingberries, ice melons, and more. Buildings and structures in the planet were roofed with cropland and fruit vines. The crops were collected by harvester droids.[1]

History[edit | edit source]

Hetzal Prime was the homeworld of the famous gill-singer Illoria Daze. It was protected by the Hetzal's security division.[1]

Around 232 BBY,[4] the Great Hyperspace Disaster occurred, in which the debris of the starship Legacy Run was suddenly launched out of hyperspace and in trajectory with the populated primeworld and moons. The Hetzalian government, under Minister Zeffren Ecka, was forced to issue a system-wide evacuation order and to request assistance from Coruscant, the capital of the Galactic Republic.[1]

Several ships from the Republic and the Jedi Order were able to lend assistance in the evacuation procedures and in destroying a number of the Legacy Run's debris, saving many lives in the proccess.[1]

Locations[edit | edit source]

Aguirre City was the capital city of Hetzal Prime. During the Great Disaster, the Hetzalian government was based in the Ministerial Residence, within Aguirre City.[1]
