Behind the scenes
The Raspar system was introduced in the 2009 reference book The Essential Atlas, authored by Daniel Wallace and Jason Fry, which placed it in grid square N-5. The name of the system built upon the mention of the moon Raspar-6 in the 1993 book Monsters and Aliens from George Lucas, a publication that combines creature designs and photographs from various projects of George Lucas, creator of the Star Wars franchise, with original text by Bob Carrau.
In Monsters and Aliens from George Lucas, Raspar-6 is described as a terrestrial moon on which an atomic blast erupted at some point. A subsequent weather forecast—which referred to Raspar-6 as a "delinquent moon"—for the West Fissure region of an agricultural planet prognosticated that the explosion would affect the planet's atmosphere, potentially causing months-long climate changes in the West Fissure area. Lucasfilm employee Leland Chee, who maintains the Holocron continuity database, has indicated that information contained in Monsters and Aliens from George Lucas is non-canonical with respect to the Star Wars Legends continuity.
