The massacre at Asyrphus took place on the terrestrial astronomical object Asyrphus,[2] between the years 0 ABY and 3 ABY,[1] when the Rebel Alliance's 61st Mobile Infantry faced a bombardment that saw the deaths of many of its troopers, including its comm tech and her droid. During attack on Haidoral Prime[2] in 3 ABY,[1] Hazram Namir, a soldier in the 61st who knew the technician, remembered the massacre on Asyrphus when recalling his time with her. Later that year, he compared the losses the 61st took on Asyrphus to the company's recent losses in its command structure.[2]

Notes and references[edit | edit source]

  1. 1.0 1.1 1.2 Battlefront: Twilight Company establishes that the massacre at Asyrphus took place during Hazram Namir's service in the 61st Mobile Infantry. Namir joined the company shortly after the Battle of the Tower, which takes place nineteen years after the Clone Wars and prior to the battle on Vir Aphshire, an event that occurs concurrently to the Battle of Yavin. The massacre also occurs prior to the attack on Haidoral Prime, which takes place twenty-two years after the Clone Wars. Since the dates for the Battle of the Tower and the attack on Haidoral Prime corresponds to 0 BBY and 3 ABY, respectively, according to Star Wars: Galactic Atlas, the massacre at Asyrphus must have taken place sometime between these two years.
