The Numatra system was a star system located within the galactic regions known as the Core Worlds[1] and the Southern Core.[2] It was home to the creatures known as numatras,[3][4] as well as the origin point of Numatra snakehide.[4][5]

Behind the scenes[]

The Numatra system was first mentioned in the 2009 reference book The Essential Atlas, written by Jason Fry and Daniel Wallace, which placed the system in grid square L-12.[2]

(backup link) Jason Fry, co-author of The Essential Atlas, stated his intention to create homeworlds for numerous species based on context implied from their names. This article treats the Numatra system as the location of one such homeworld with regard to the numatra species. Given this principle, this article also makes a similar basic assumption for the Numatra snakehide in relation to the system.
