A Kitonak.


Kirdo III was located within a star system in the Tamarin sector of the Outer Rim Territories region of the galaxy,[1] situated on the Sanrafsix Corridor between Sevarcos and Ma'ar Shaddam.[2] Its surface consisted of barren, sandy desert,[5] oceans of red, cracked mud, and escarpments of yellow-orange hills,[4] with quicksand and caves also present.[5] It had an arid climate[3] and winds often blew at speeds of 400-kilometers-per-hour[5] or more.[3] Rainfall occurred once a decade, and when it came it lasted several days, forming lakes and filling dry riverbeds. Herds of migrating chooba grazed on sulfaro plants and were hunted by the Kitonaks, a primitive sentient species native to the planet.[5]


Kirdo III was discovered by scouts a few decades before the rise of the Galactic Empire. A number of slave traders targeted the Kitonaks.[3] The Eye of Palpatine stopped at the planet and, failing to find the stormtroopers it was looking for, took onboard a number of Kitonaks whom it tried (with little success) to brainwash into being Imperials.

Callista Ming at some point in her travels stopped at Kirdo III.
