Jurio was a planet[4] in the Jurio system, a part of the Corva sector[1] in the New Territories portion of[2] the Outer Rim Territories.[1] It was home to the winged creature known as the Juriod fang-flier.[5][6]

Sometime between 3681 BBY[7] and 3669 BBY,[8] Jurio was conquered by the reconstituted Sith Empire in the early years of their invasion of the Galactic Republic. Jurio was granted Imperial governance, a fact which allowed Captain Adronik Hyllus of the Imperial Military to marry a Human woman native to Jurio, and the two had a son that they named Vector on Jurio[4] in 3669 BBY.[8]

The planet remained under Imperial control for many years afterward, and during his career, the intelligence operative Rane Kovach carried out an assignment on Jurio at the request of Theron Shan of the Republic Strategic Information Service; Kovach was tasked with infiltrating dissident groups and fomenting revolution against the Sith Empire while minimizing casualties.[9]

Behind the scenes[]

Jurio was first mentioned in the Codex entry for Vector Hyllus in Star Wars: The Old Republic, a video game released by BioWare in 2011.[4] The 2009 reference book The Essential Atlas placed the Jurio star system, and therefore the planet itself, in grid square P-4.[3]

The Old Republic's Codex entry "Intelligence Profile: Vector Hyllus" establishes Vector Hyllus to be 26 years of age, and the Codex entry is acquired during Act I, which means Hyllus was born in 3669 BBY.
