"Recently arrived from Old Mankoo, out by the Outer Rim. […] Her planet's impoverished—although she seems to live well enough."
Obi-Wan Kenobi, on Princess Tsian[3]

Old Mankoo was a planet[3] located in the Old Mankoo system, a part of the Quess sector[1] in the Trailing Sectors portion of[2] the Mid Rim.[1] The planet was impoverished,[4] and by 23 BBY,[5] the royal family of Old Mankoo had been overthrown.[6]

Although the[6] Human[3] Princess Tsian, a part of the royal family, continued to live well, due to the political situation on her homeworld, the princess no longer had access to the funds she previously had. As a result, Tsian became an assassin for hire. She had the Psicom 1260 interface,[6] which allowed her to control assassin droids with her thoughts,[3] cybernetically implanted into her brain[6] and then used her diplomatic status as a princess to carry out political assassinations off-world.[3]

Behind the scenes[]

Old Mankoo was first mentioned in Honor and Duty, Part 2, the forty-seventh issue of the Dark Horse Comics' Star Wars: Republic comic-book series. The issue was written by John Ostrander[3] and published on December 11, 2002.[7]

The entry for Old Mankoo in the 2008 The Complete Star Wars Encyclopedia placed the planet in the Outer Rim Territories,[4] contradicting Republic 47, which placed it in that region's vicinity instead.[3] The 2009 reference book The Essential Atlas subsequently placed the Old Mankoo system, and therefore the planet itself, in grid square N-17 as part of the Mid Rim,[2] and the StarWars.com Online Companion to that book later specified that the Old Mankoo system was situated in the Quess sector, which formed a part of the Mid Rim's border with the Outer Rim Territories.[8]
