- "I'm thinking this planet's not gonna work out as a base after all."
"Seeing that the key part of secret base is the secret location, no, it will not work out!"
- ―Ezra Bridger and Kanan Jarrus, as they duel a pair of Inquisitors on Oosalon
Description[edit | edit source]
Oosalon was a barren, rocky mountainous planet located in the galaxy's Outer Rim Territories. The planet had a atmosphere breathable to oxygen-breathers, such as humans. The planet was inhabited by a non-sentient creature named the Tibidee.
History[edit | edit source]
- "Ahhh, so that is why the great master Mace Windu has deigned to visit this backwater of a planet—to pass his sanctimonious judgment."
- ―Guattako, to Mace Windu
During the Republic Era, Jedi Master Mace Windu was captured by Guattako's army while searching for missing Padawans that Guattako had kidnapped. After capturing Windu, they broke his lightsaber and were planning to broadcast Windu's execution across the galaxy so the Jedi's death could inspire many new converts into his cause. Later Windu was able to use the Force to reconstruct his lightsaber. Eventually Windu was able to defeat Guattako's army. When he met with Guattako, he fought with him until he was knocked out by his staff. When Guattako was going to kill Windu, a young Jedi shot and killed Guattako. Windu and the missing padawans later escaped.
In 3 BBY,[source?] two rebels—the Jedi Kanan Jarrus and his Padawan, Ezra Bridger— who participated in the early rebellion against the Galactic Empire scouted Oosalon as a potential location for a rebel base. Instead, they were confronted by two Imperial Inquisitors, the Seventh Sister and the Fifth Brother, and engaged them in a lightsaber duel on Oosalon Mesa before escaping on the back of a tibidee.
