"As we speak, the frozen planet of Rinn is facing an energy crisis."
―Commander Jun Sato[2]

Rinn was an ice planet[3] located in the Outer Rim Territories.[1] Around 4 BBY,[5] the people of Rinn faced an energy crisis: once their dwindling supply of fuel cells had run out, they would be unable to power the heaters necessary for their survival. This predicament prompted rebel commander Jun Sato to task the Spectres with acquiring more generators.[2]

Sometime later, one of the A-Wing rebel pilots of Phoenix Squadron was patrolling around Rinn until he was attacked by imperial forces. He returned to Sato wounded. The pilot said he thought he had lost them but the Imperials found where Phoenix Cell was hiding, which lead to a battle.[6]

Rinn was the homeworld of Resistance major Taslin Brance, a male human.[4]

  4. According to Star Wars: Scum and Villainy: Case Files on the Galaxy's Most Notorious, in the year 7973 C.R.C., Ketsu Onyo resigned from the Black Sun. It also dates the Battle of Scarif to 7977 C.R.C., four years after Onyo's resignation. Star Wars: Galactic Atlas dates Jyn Erso's mission to steal the plans of the first Death Star, which concluded with the Battle of Scarif, to 0 BBY. Therefore, it can be calculated that 7973 C.R.C. is equal to 4 BBY. Since Onyo states in "Blood Sisters" that she currently works for the Black Sun, that episode must occur by 4 BBY. Additionally, Star Wars: Galactic Atlas dates the Siege of Lothal to 4 BBY. Since "Brothers of the Broken Horn" occurs after the Siege of Lothal but before the events of "Blood Sisters," it can be concluded that the events of the episode took place in 4 BBY.
