The Porpor system was located in the Grohl sector,[1] a part of the Slice portion of[2] the Outer Rim Territories.[1] It was home to the sentient species known as Porporites,[3][4] which was exterminated by Gank mercenaries in 4800 BBY.[5]

Behind the scenes[]

The Porpor system was first mentioned in the 2009 reference book The Essential Atlas, written by Jason Fry and Daniel Wallace, which placed the system in grid square S-16.[2]
