"Well, the bounty hunter we ran into on Ord Mantell changed my mind."
―Han Solo[src]

Ord Mantell was a planet located in the Bright Jewel system of the galaxy's Mid Rim that was the homeworld of the Mantellian Savrip species. In the waning days of the Galactic Republic, Ord Mantell City housed a base of operations for the Black Sun crime syndicate. It later came under control of the Galactic Empire and became home to an Imperial deepdock.

Ord Mantell City

Located not far from the gas giant Wynkahthu,[12] the planet Ord Mantell orbited Bright Jewel, a blue star located in the Bright Jewel system, within the Bright Jewel sector of the galaxy's Mid Rim.[1] The world was one of the terminals of the Burke's Trailing smuggler's hyperspace route, which connected it to the moon Jedha.[5] Ord Mantell itself was orbited by at least three moons,[2] one of which was known as Quantxi, or the "Junk Moon of Ord Mantell."[3] The planet's thick clouds glowed with a pink cast when viewed from space and every landmass was dotted with mountain chains, other than the common mountain chains the planet also had large areas of forests and plains, wastelands and large polar regions.[1]
