Lur was a planet in the Outer Rim Territories. The planet was noted for its geneticists. The world remained loyal to the Galactic Republic during the Clone Wars, although restrictions on non-military cloning hindered much of the Lurrians' genetic research. Under the New Order, Lur was quarantined as in fear that the Larrian's technology would be used for evil, though this quarantine was lightly enforced.[1] The Empire would often raided the planet for slaves as well. During the Yuuzhan Vong War the New Republic took great interest in the Lurrian's bioengineering. [1]

One of the stormtroopers that accompanied Darth Vader to Cheelit, killed a young woman while on the planet. Clat the Shamer used the memories of that event to force the soldier to commit suicide.

Lur was one of the places the Shi'ido anthropologist Mammon Hoole visited after his graduation from the Chandrilan Academy of Sciences to study genetics.

It was also one of the many organizations the Null Arcs stole data from in order to gather enough information on how to stop their accelerated aging.
