Kiffu[3] was a planet[2] located in the Inner Rim region of the galaxy.[1] It was one of two home planets of the sentient Kiffar species, along with Kiffex.[2] It was the homeworld of the Kiffar[4] Jedi Master Quinlan Vos,[3] who was active in the Jedi Order from at least 32 years before the Battle of Yavin[5][6][7] until at least near the end of the Clone Wars.[8]

Behind the scenes[]

Kiffu first appeared in Star Wars (1998) 20, the 20th issue of the Star Wars: Republic series of comics, as the home planet of Quinlan Vos.[9] Though this series of comics is now considered part of the continuity of Star Wars Legends,[10] the planet Kiffu was listed as Vos's homeworld in Ultimate Star Wars,[3] a canon guide to the Star Wars franchise released to the general public on April 28, 2015.[11] The Databank on the StarWars.com website later added an entry for the Kiffar specifying that the species' two home planets were Kiffu and Kiffex.[2]
