This article is about the location. You may be looking for the Meor nobility.

Meor Ain was a location in the galaxy where Dex Acquisitions operated a depot. Tunga Arpagion was rescued from the depot by the Rebel Alliance.

Description[edit | edit source]

Meor Ain's purple rocky surface was scattered with ridges and cracks, and its sky was lined with smoke that erupted from holes in the ground. A large astronomical body was visible on Meor Ain's horizon.[1]

History[edit | edit source]

Sometime after the Battle of Yavin, Princess Leia Organa and her rebel team traveled to Meor Ain to recruit the shapeshifter Tunga Arpagion, so that he could help them kidnap[1] Tan Hubi,[2] the Imperial Moff of the Calamari sector, whose bio-signature was needed in order to access the prison holding the Mon Calamari King Lee-Char. To get access to Arpagion's cell at the Dex Acquisitions Depot, Leia had the Wookiee Chewbacca pose as a bounty hunter who had captured her. Upon hearing this, the depot's leader, Arty-Ba, told their partner to take Organa to the ultra-security cells. Chewbacca threw both depot workers into a wall, knocking them both unconscious. Han Solo and Luke Skywalker blasted their way into the brig with a breaching torpedo, rescuing Arpagion from his cell[1] and leaving in the Millennium Falcon.[2]

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]

Meor Ain first appeared in the canon comic Star Wars 45, which was written by Kieron Gillen, illustrated by Salvador Larroca[1] and published on March 21, 2018.[3]
