- "Welcome to my world ... So, what do you think of my Romin so far?"
"Amazing! ... Incredible! We're overcome!"
"I am seeing that this is true by your faces! We Romins are so proud of our world that we are not surprised when visitors decide they must live here. On behalf of all Romins, I welcome you!"
- ―Jedi Master Obi-Wan Kenobi, in his guise as the con man and "dandy" Roper Slam, is personally welcomed to Romin by its dictator-ruler Roy Teda.
Roy Teda divided the impoverished planet into two parts, with the poor being shut out from Eliior, Romin's wealthy capital city, by massive walls. He opened up the banks and borders of the planet to criminals, from whom he accepted bribes for their admittance, to personally enrich himself.
The planet was also home to the Force-sensitive twins, Eldewn and Elsae Sarvool. At age 9, they were orphaned when their parents were killed in an assassination ordered by a local crime lord. Due to their Force-sensitivity, they were scheduled to relocate to Coruscant, but ended up back on Romin when their transport was targeted by the gangster.
