The massacre at Asyrphus took place on the terrestrial astronomical object Asyrphus, between the years 0 ABY and 3 ABY, 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 in 3 ABY, 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.

Notes and references[edit | edit source]
- The main events of Battlefront: Twilight Company are set 22 years after the Clone Wars, which ended in 19 BBY, according to Star Wars: Galactic Atlas. Those events must have therefore occurred in 3 ABY. According to the novel, the massacre at Asyrphus took place during Hazram Namir's service in the 61st Mobile Infantry and prior to the main events of Battlefront: Twilight Company. Namir joined the company shortly after the Battle of the Tower, which occurs nineteen years after the Clone Wars in the novel, so the massacre at Asyrphus must have occurred sometime between 0 BBY and 3 ABY.
