Mount Tantiss was a mountain on the planet Wayland that hosted Tantiss Base. During the early days of the Imperial Era, the Galactic Empire relocated its cloning program from the extragalactic planet Kamino to the Wayland facility,[2] establishing it as the headquarters for the secret Advanced Science Division.[3] Medical personnel, including the kidnapped Nala Se, were brought to Mount Tantiss for the cloning effort.[2] The mountain included several facilities for the cloning program including holding cells for Se[4] and rogue clones,[3] and an underground containment zone for cloned Zillo Beasts. Mount Tantiss and its facilities were heavily guarded by clone commandos, Imperial royal guards, and TK stormtroopers.[4]
