Rainboh was a terrestrial planet[2] located in the Rainboh system of the Inner Rim's Hapes Cluster. Positioned among the Hapan Rim Worlds, Rainboh could be reached from the Great Rim Route or the Rynmar Trail hyperlanes via the planet Rynmar itself.[1]

The planet had rocky terrain, which appeared in several different colors. Bands of purple, green, red, brown, and blue rocks made up the planet's surface, and rainbow-colored raindrops fell on the world. There was at least one raised surface on Rainboh, and the planet's skyline featured one rounded, four-colored satellite.[2]

Rainboh was home to the Jeby, a three-headed, four-legged, tentacled-and-spotted species. When a Jeby laughed boisterously, it shed its pink spots, littering the surface of Rainboh. However, the creature would then suck the spots back up onto its body.[2]

Behind the scenes[]

Rainboh was created by seven-year-old Star Wars fan Paul Rice for the backstory of his Jeby entry in the "Design An Alien" contest, which was held through the Star Wars Galaxy Magazine. Rice's submission was part of a school art project for which his first-grade teacher had selected the "Design An Alien" contest for students to complete. Rice's entry was published in the magazine's seventh issue in April 1996 under the "Honorable Mentions – Under 16" category.[2]

Leland Chee, keeper of the Star Wars Holocron continuity database, stated in 2006 that published content from the "Design An Alien" contest was canon.[3] The Essential Atlas, a reference book published in 2009, placed the planet grid square O-9.[1]
