Raada was a remote Outer Rim farming moon where the former Padawan Ahsoka Tano worked as a mechanic under the name of "Ashla" one year after the end of the Clone Wars. Shortly after her arrival, Imperial forces arrived on the moon in order to grow a certain crop used in nutritional supplements. Imperial bureaucrat Jenneth Pilar had chosen Raada for this because, due to its remoteness and small population, the moon was essentially expendable. The crop leeched nutrients out of the soil, leaving it useless for further farming without fertilizer, which the Empire did not provide. This, coupled with the oppressive conditions the Imperials enforced, led to a growing resistance on the moon. After a disastrous attack on the Imperial base, Ahsoka was forced to leave. She returned many weeks later, having organized the evacuation of the moon's population with the help of Bail Organa's forces. During the ensuing battle, the rebel A-wing pilots made sure to destroy the Imperial crops.
Behind the scenesEdit
Raada first appeared in E. K. Johnston's 2016 novel Ahsoka. In "By Whatever Sun", a short story co-written by Johnston and Ashley Eckstein for the anthology From a Certain Point of View, Raada is incorrectly referred to as a planet, instead of a moon.
