"Oh, and you got another message about two hours ago from a Juahir Madras."
"Juahir Madras?"
"Yes, Governor, from the Oovo Four detention center."
―A receptionist and Governor Arihnda Pryce — (audio) Listen (file info)[src]

Oovo 4, also known as Oovo Four, was a high-security prison moon located near asteroid-strewn space. The Firespray-31-class patrol and attack craft was designed for the task of guarding the moon, as a unique craft was needed for the job. At some point by 32 BBY, the bounty hunter Jango Fett stole the Firespray-31 Slave I from Oovo 4.

During the reign of the Galactic Empire, Oovo 4 was home to the Oovo Four detention center. After Juahir Madras, a bodyguard instructor at the Yinchom Dojo on the planet Coruscant, was arrested for convincing her trainees to attack and occasionally murder the Imperial Senators they were tasked with protecting, she was imprisoned at the detention center. While there, Madras sent at least twenty messages to her friend Arihnda Pryce, governor of the planet Lothal.

Sometime around 9 ABY, Oovo 4 was controlled by the New Republic. The Zabrak Thene Kross was listed as being sentenced to thirty years on Oovo 4 for grand theft starship and resisting arrest.

History[edit | edit source]

At some point by 32 BBY,[6] the Mandalorian bounty hunter Jango Fett stole a Firespray-31 from Oovo 4 and named it Slave I.[7] Later, during the reign of the Galactic Empire, the moon became home to the Oovo Four detention center, and after bodyguard instructor Juahir Madras was arrested for convincing her trainees to both assault and murder Imperial Senators they were tasked with protecting, she was imprisoned at the detention center. While imprisoned, Madras sent at least twenty messages to her friend Governor Arihnda Pryce of the planet Lothal.[1]

Around five years after the Battle of Endor,[8] the New Republic controlled Oovo 4. The Zabrak Thene Kross was listed as being sentenced to thirty years on the moon for theft of starships and resisting arrest.[2]
