The rathtar was a species that could be found in the galaxy.[1] Around 3631 BBY,[2] rathtar genetic markers, along with those from dozens of other species, were found by Doctor Juvard Illip Oggurobb inside Gethul,[1] a creature that was hibernating under the surface of the planet Makeb and that was killed by the Commander of the Eternal Alliance.[3]

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]

The rathtar was first mentioned in the Star Wars Legends continuity in BioWare's 2011 massively multiplayer online role-playing video game Star Wars: The Old Republic, specifically the[3] 2017[4] Defend the Throne update for the 2016 Knights of the Eternal Throne expansion.[3] The rathtar was originally introduced in the 2015 canon film Star Wars: Episode VII The Force Awakens, the first installment of the Star Wars sequel trilogy.[5]

  2. According to the novel The Old Republic: Annihilation, the Treaty of Coruscant collapsed in 3642 BBY, and Star Wars: The Old Republic: Knights of the Fallen Empire states that Choza Raabat disappeared two years before that, therefore in 3644 BBY. The game also establishes that Raabat's disappearance occurred twelve years before the events of Knights of the Fallen Empire, so Chapters II–VII of Fallen Empire must take place in 3632 BBY, and Chapter I—which takes place five years prior to the rest of the expansion—in 3637 BBY. Companion conversations at the end of Star Wars: The Old Republic: Knights of the Eternal Throne state that it has been six years since the events of Chapter I of Knights of the Fallen Empire. Since the mission where Gethul was killed takes place shortly after the end of the Knights of the Eternal Throne storyline, it can be therefore placed in approximately 3631 BBY.
