"I was under the impression that Darth Maul's home world was Iridonia."
"Dathomir is the planet where Maul was raised. Iridonia is where the rest of the males of the species dwell."
―Obi-Wan Kenobi and Mace Windu[src]

Iridonia was a planet[2] located in the galaxy's Mid Rim, in grid square J-7[1] on the Standard Galactic Grid.[4] It was the homeworld of the near-human Zabrak species,[2] with Zabraks hailing from Iridonia being specifically known as Iridonian Zabraks.[3]

Iridonia was the homeworld of the Zabrak bounty hunter Sugi[5] and her niece Jas Emari, who considered the planet to be brutal and unforgiving.[6] Jedi Master Obi-Wan Kenobi mistakenly believed the Dathomirian Zabrak Darth Maul was born on Iridonia, when in fact he was born on the planet Dathomir, home to a tribal group of male Zabrak known as the Nightbrothers.[7]

During the Clone Wars, Sugi's sister lived on Iridonia, and was sent what few credits her sister had left after she had paid her crew and maintained her gear.[8]

Behind the scenesEdit

Iridonia was first mentioned in the Star Wars canon in "Witches of the Mist,"[7] a 2011 episode of the animated series Star Wars: The Clone Wars' third season.[9] The planet was originally created for the 2000 Star Wars Legends young readers novel Star Wars Episode I Journal: Darth Maul, written by Jude Watson.[10]
