"We infiltrated a smuggler ring on Karazak. They had no idea what they were dealing with."
―Lene Kostana — (audio) Listen (file info)[3]

Karazak was a terrestrial[3] world[4] located in the Outer Rim Territories[1] and Trailing Sectors,[2] positioned at the coordinates P-19 on the Standard Galactic Grid.[1] Karazak was known for its slavery, a trade that was tolerated, but also regulated, by the Galactic Empire.[4] It shared its name with the slaver organization known as the Karazak Slavers' Cooperative.[5]

In around 82 BBY,[6] Jedi Master Lene Kostana and her Padawan Sifo-Dyas infiltrated a smuggler ring on Karazak, following their supply routes in an attempt to track the location of Sith relics on the black market. They, along with fellow Padawan Dooku, were led to the planet Asusto, but fell into a trap set up by the last remaining coven of the Presagers of Hakotei.[3] Several weeks after the Battle of Endor[4] in 4 ABY,[7] the Lormar-class space station Whitedrift Exchange, a mobile trading post and residential station, arrived in orbit around Karazak.[4]

Behind the scenes[]

Karazak was first shown in the new Star Wars canon on a map in the article Where in the Galaxy Are the Worlds of Star Wars: The Force Awakens?, published on StarWars.com on January 29, 2016. The name "Karazak" was not fully visible on the image used in the article,[8] but it was later identified in Star Wars: The Force Awakens Beginner Game, published by Fantasy Flight Games[1] in August 2016.[9]

In the Star Wars Legends continuity, the planet Karazak was first mentioned in Galaxy Guide 9: Fragments from the Rim, a supplement to Star Wars: The Roleplaying Game written by Simon Smith and Eric S. Trautmann, and published in 1993.[10]
