"We're researching the effects…the fall of the Republic on planets like Utapau."
"Or Mirial! You know, out-of-the-way places that were abandoned after all the fighting, and no one stayed behind to clean up the mess. We're going there next, but Utapau was closer, so we started here first."
Karr Nuq Sin and Maize Raynshi, lying to Sconto[6]

Mirial was a cold and dry desert planet located in the Mirial system of the Outer Rim Territories. It was the homeworld of the near-human Mirialan species, including Jedi Master Luminara Unduli and her Padawan Barriss Offee. Unduli honored the traditions of the world by selecting a fellow Mirialan as her apprentice.

Description[]

Mirial was located in the Mirial system[2] of the Outer Rim Territories, situated in grid square Q-4 of the Standard Galactic Grid. It was positioned on a hyperspace route connecting it to Listehol.[1] A cold, dry,[3] desert[4] planet,[7] Mirial's landscape was pink and green in hue.[8]

History[]

Disciple of the Whills Kozem Pel included a quote from Mete Janvaren of Mirial in the book Collected Poems, Prayers, and Meditations on the Force.[9]

During the final decades of the Republic Era, Mirialan Jedi Master Luminara Unduli and her Padawan, Barriss Offee, both hailed from Mirial. Unduli took Offee as her apprentice in accordance with Mirialan tradition.[5] New Republic pilot Keo Venzee also hailed from the planet.[10]

Pirate Synara San, who was active during the New Republic Era and Cold War, hailed from Mirial.[11] Around 3132 ABY,[12] the Force-sensitive human Karr Nuq Sin and his half-Mirialan friend Maize Raynshi went on a journey through the Outer Rim looking for Force-related artifacts. While visiting the planet Utapau, the duo lied to the merchant Sconto that they were investigating the effects of the fall of the Galactic Republic on "out-of-the-way" locales, and intended to continue on to Mirial next.[6]

During or after 34 ABY,[13] the chef Strono Tuggs included a recipe for Mirial Teacakes, a pastry named for the planet, in his second cookbook. Noting that the cakes were so named due to sharing a colour scheme with Mirial's landscape, Tuggs commented that they were not nearly so dry as their namesake.[8]

Inhabitants[]

Mirial was the homeworld of the near-human Mirialan species, who looked mostly human except for green[5] or purple[11] skin. It was traditional for Mirialan Jedi to take other members of their species as their apprentices, a tradition Unduli followed,[5] although other Mirialan Jedi, such as Vernestra Rwoh[14] and Cyslin Myr, chose to teach members of other species.[15]

Behind the scenes[]

Mirial was first canonically mentioned in the 2015 reference book Ultimate Star Wars.[5] In the Star Wars Legends continuity, Mirial was created for James Luceno's 2001 novel Cloak of Deception.[16]

  12. The events of Force Collector take place between 3132 ABY per the following reasoning. In Force Collector, Dok-Ondar has the arm of C-3PO, which he lost during the mission to Taul. Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker: The Visual Dictionary states that Poe Dameron joined the Resistance three years before the Starkiller Incident, which Star Wars: Galactic Atlas dates to 34 ABY. Therefore, Dameron joined the Resistance in 31 ABY. As Dameron is a member of the Resistance at the time of the mission to Taul, it must take place during or after 31 ABY, and therefore the events of Force Collector also take place during or after 31 ABY. Furthermore, 'Star Wars: Force Collector' Author Kevin Shinick on How His Story Ties into 'Star Wars' Canon. collider.com. Collider. Archived from the original on November 19, 2019.– states that Force Collector takes place a few years prior to Star Wars: Episode VII The Force Awakens, or 34 ABY. Therefore, Force Collector takes place at least two years prior to 34 ABY, meaning the latest that Force Collector can be set is 32 ABY.
  13. Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge: The Official Black Spire Outpost Cookbook establishes that the in-universe book was published at the same time as when the First Order was searching for the Resistance base on Batuu. As that search occurs in Galaxy's Edge: Black Spire, which is set in 34 ABY according to the reasoning here, the cookbook must have been published in 34 ABY. Star Wars: The Life Day Cookbook depicts the contents of Strono Tuggs' second cookbook, which must therefore have been published after his first.
