Ruoss Minor was a planet controlled by the Galactic Empire at some point during the Imperial Era. The world suffered due to a crackdown ordered by Emperor Palpatine, the Empire's leader.[1] In 3 BBY,[2] Viceroy Bail Organa gave his daughter, the Alderaanian Princess Leia Organa, a list of locations in need of humanitarian aid, which included Ruoss Minor.[1]

The princess considered the damage inflicted on Ruoss Minor but felt that the Empire's crackdown had occurred so far in the past that little proof of it being caused by Imperial influences could still be found. Leia eventually chose to instead aid the world Chasmeene with her relief efforts.[1]

Behind the scenes[]

Ruoss Minor was mentioned in Leia, Princess of Alderaan, a 2017 young-adult novel written by Claudia Gray.[1]
