"One bright spot: this planet isn't on any of the charts, so it'll take the Imperial troops a while to find us."
―Luke Skywalker[src]

Keeper's World, located in the Outer Rim Territories, was the homeworld of The Keeper. It used to be inhabited by the Keeper's makers until they fled the planet during an ancient war.

Description[edit | edit source]

"At least we're safe on this planet!"
―Luke Skywalker, being inaccurate[src]

In 0 ABY the Keeper's world had varied, primarily temperate terrain including forests, jungles, plains, and mountains. There was also an extensive network of underground caves connected to the Keeper's Temple.[6][5] Because the planet was being restored by the Keeper, its environment was subject to sudden radical change. At the Keeper's will the planet could erupt with groundquakes and geysers of lava. These seemingly catastrophic events could be temporary, ending with little sign they had ever transpired.[9]

Save for the Keeper and her creations, Earth, Fire, Rain, and Wind, there was no sentient life on the planet. However, there were monstrous creatures roaming the surface. The juveniles of this species were about three times the size of a human, while an adult was significantly larger.[8]

History[edit | edit source]

"This was the Keeper... and its task was to rebuild and ready the war-torn world for the day its people would come back."
―The Keeper's history lesson[src]

According to the Keeper, in the distant past there was a war that "raged from rim to rim of the entire galaxy". The inhabitants of Keeper's World were non-violent, and found they could not withstand the war. As their homeworld was ravaged by the violence, they fled their planet. They left the Keeper behind, a powerful computer with control over the entire planet, down to its very core. She was tasked with restoring the planet for its original inhabitants in preparation for their return. Realizing that interference from alien species would disrupt her work, the Keeper deliberately made the planet appear to be hostile and populated it with fearsome creatures.[4]

In 0 ABY a group of Rebels led by Princess Leia Organa and Luke Skywalker crashed on the planet, pursued by an Imperial commander and a contingent of Stormtroopers. The Rebels discovered the Keeper in the depths of her temple, and learned of her history. To protect her work, the Keeper caused the planet to erupt in a cataclysm, leading the Imperials to believe that the Rebels had perished, and that the planet was too dangerously unstable to approach in the future. Once the Imperials had fled the Keeper ended the cataclysm, and released the Rebels whom she had sheltered for their own safety. She then repaired their ship and sent them on their way, so she could continue her work of restoring the planet.[9]

Inhabitants[edit | edit source]

"And yet... even a machine can know loneliness."
―The Keeper's history lesson[src]

The original inhabitants of the Keeper's World were non-violent and technologically advanced, and fled the planet long ago. The Keeper eventually created four android helpers in the likeness of her creators. These androids were Earth, Fire, Rain, and Wind. They had extraordinary powers, and could each manipulate the element they were named for.[4][5]

Locations[edit | edit source]

"It's some kind of ruin, Threepio-- right here in the middle of the jungle!"
―Luke Skywalker[src]

Although most of the Keeper's World was pristine wilderness fashioned by the Keeper, one location of note was a ruined temple. The Keeper's Temple seemed to be long abandoned, but within its crumbling walls was a functioning teleportal. This device teleported those who activated it inside the caverns that housed the Keeper and her android creations.[7][5]

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]

In the cancelled novella Supernatural Encounters: The Trial and Transformation of Arhul Hextrophon, the name of the planet is revealed to be Osseria.[10]
