- "You ever carried out an assault on an urban objective before?"
"Yes. N'dian. Heard of it?"
"I meant one where you had to leave the place pretty well intact, sir."
- ―RC-1207 and Ordo
By the time of the Clone Wars, it was the site of several urban centers. A Separatist group was believed to be hiding in one of the cities during that conflict. As a result, during the first year of the war, Ordo, a Null-class Advanced Recon Commando of the Grand Army of the Galactic Republic, was sent to the planet to assault the city. The ensuing battle was highly intense, with Ordo almost completely destroying the city single-handedly in order to achieve his mission objectives.

N'dian was first mentioned in the 2006 novel Republic Commando: Triple Zero, written by Karen Traviss. The 2009 reference book The Essential Atlas placed the N'dian system, and therefore the planet N'dian, within grid square R-6.
