Maridun was a planet located in the Rolion sector of the Outer Rim Territories. It was a temperate and verdant world, with a comfortable climate despite its challenging ecosystem and dangerous predators. Covered in grassy plains where large seed pods grew, it was the homeworld of the Amanin and was inhabited by mastiff phalones.
Lurmen refugees who sought to escape the Clone Wars settled on the planet, seeking to make peaceful new lives away from watchful eyes. During the war, Republic survivors of the Battle of Quell crash-landed there and discovered the Lurmen village. Soon, Separatist General Lok Durd arrived and sought an alliance with the Lurmen, while plotting to test a new weapon known as the Defoliator on them. The Jedi present discovered this and defended the Lurmen village when Durd betrayed them. They rallied the villagers, disabled the Defoliator and captured Durd before three Star Destroyers arrived to retrieve them.
