Located on the edge of the galaxy's Mid Rim, Numidian Prime was a warm and beautiful jungle planet, though it also had swamp terrain. The terrestrial planet had a breathable atmosphere, and was inhabited by species of birds.
History[edit | edit source]
During the time of the Galactic Republic, the bounty hunter Shenda Mol had a stronghold and several followers on Numidian Prime. The Jedi Dooku and Qui-Gon Jinn, as part of a strike team, tracked her to the stronghold, apprehending both Mol and her followers and imprisoning her on the planet Stygeon Prime.
The card game sabacc had a set of rules based on Numidian Prime, and the gambler Lando Calrissian once held a winning hand according to them. Calrissian also won a disabler device playing a game of cards on Numidian Prime.
Following a mission undertaken by the crew of Tobias Beckett for the Crimson Dawn crime syndicate, in which Calrissian had been hired for the use of his starship, the Millennium Falcon, the gambler abandoned Beckett's gang on Savareen, visiting Numidian Prime. Two former members of Beckett's crew, Han Solo and Chewbacca, eventually made their way to the planet, where Solo won the Millennium Falcon from Calrissian in a game of sabacc.
