For other uses, see Merel.

The Merel sector was located in the Outer Rim Territories. By 0 ABY, it bordered the Lol sector Coreward, the Samix sector Rimward, and the Skine sector in the trailing direction. The Nedij system[1] of the Samix sector[2] was located very close to the Merel-Samix border.[1]

The Ragnar system was situated in the Merel sector,[2] and the former contained the remote astronomical object Ragnar VIII.[4] The home offices of the Ragnar Syndicate, a chapter house of the Bounty Hunters' Guild, were located on Ragnar VIII, leading to the celestial body being considered the homeworld of the house.[5]

During the reign of the Galactic Empire, the Merel sector was governed by Imperial Moff Tregar, who often employed the Ragnar Syndicate for missions unfit for the Imperial Military.[3] During the Galactic Civil War, the Rebel Alliance carried out operations in the sector.[6]

Behind the scenes[]

The Merel sector was first mentioned in Galaxy Guide 9: Fragments from the Rim, a 1993 sourcebook written by Simon Smith and Eric S. Trautmann for West End Games' Star Wars: The Roleplaying Game.[3] In 2012, the sector was depicted on a map designed by Modi and published in The Essential Atlas Extra: Outer Rim Sectors, a feature of[1] the StarWars.com Online Companion to the 2009 reference book The Essential Atlas.[2]
