"The shipjackers chose Lucazec over Nam Chorios or even Belderone, and they transmitted their attack live over the HoloNet."
Wilhuff Tarkin, to Darth Vader[src]

Nam Chorios was a planet[2] located in the galaxy's Outer Rim Territories[1] that housed both an Imperial mining colony and prison facility by the fifth year of Darth Sidious' reign as Emperor. The primary star in its planetary system provided barely enough sunshine to illuminate Nam Chorios properly, conferring it a bleak appearance. For that reason, Nam Chorios was considered too cold and unwelcoming by human standards.[2]

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]

The planet first appeared in the 1997 Star Wars Legends novel Planet of Twilight, written by Barbara Hambly.[3] It was brought into canon in the 2014 novel Tarkin, written by James Luceno.[2]
