"Soon, the warlords were dead, and I ruled in their place. It was on Rattatak that Dooku found me, and I him."
―Asajj Ventress, reminiscing on her life on Rattatak[src]

Rattatak was a mountainous planet located in the galaxy's Outer Rim Territories. After killing the warlords responsible for the death of Jedi Knight Ky Narec, former Jedi Padawan Asajj Ventress ruled Rattatak until she was found and recruited by former Jedi Master Count Dooku, a Sith Lord.


"I originally served in the Western Reaches. On Rattatak."
―An Imperial controller, to Han Solo[src]

A Rattataki Village

Located in the the galaxy's Outer Rim Territories, in grid square H-16 on the Standard Galactic Grid,[1] Rattatak[10] was a mountainous planet orbited by at least one moon.[3] It was the homeworld of the Rattatakian redjacket.[5]


"I see such attentions as an investment in our Empire's future. Someday, I hope, we will achieve perfect rule and perfect peace, from here on Coruscant to the farthest systems of Lothal, Paucris, Rattatak—or whatever worlds we may yet find."
Governor Wilhuff Tarkin, to Princess Leia Organa[src]

At some point prior to the Clone Wars, the Siniteen slaver Hal'Sted was killed by Weequay raiders[6] during a pirate uprising,[11] leaving his slave, a young Dathomirian named Asajj Ventress, orphaned. She was found by Ky Narec, a human[6] Jedi Knight stranded on Rattatak,[8] who recognized her potential and began to train her in the ways of the Force[6] as his Padawan. For ten years, they helped the people of Rattatak, becoming enemies to some but heroes to most,[8] until he was killed while defending a Rattataki village from a Weequay raider assault, leading Ventress to give in to her grief and fall to the dark side.[6] She vowed vengeance and killed the warlords responsible for her master's death, ruling Rattatak in their place. It was there that Count Dooku, seeking an apprentice as filled with hatred as he was, found and recruited Ventress.[8]

In 5 ABY, near the end of the Galactic Civil War, the New Republic starfighter squadron Shepherd Squadron was based on the planet.[9]
