"Join us and you can continue to transact business in Confederacy spheres—through Falleen, Ruusan, all the way to the Tion sectors."
Count Dooku attempts to convince Governor Wilhuff Tarkin of Eriadu to join the Separatists[9]

Ruusan was a planet[10] located in the Ruusan system[4] within the Teraab sector[3] of the galaxy's Mid Rim[1] that was orbited by three moons.[5][1] It was positioned at the coordinates P-11[6] of the Standard Galactic Grid.[11]

Ruusan was the site of the final defeat of the Sith[12] at the end of the Jedi-Sith War.[13] It was host to a number of ancient relics, strewn across its many historical battlefields.[14]

During the Separatist Crisis, it was aligned with the Confederacy of Independent Systems,[9] and, during the Clone Wars, one of its moons was the location of Skytop Station, a secret Separatist listening post.[5] The former pirate Queen Maz Kanata marked it as a point of interest on a map she included in the book that would become known as the Smuggler's Guide.[14]

Beilert Valance, T'onga, and many other bounty hunters visited and fought at Ruusan while searching for Nakano Lash, who had hidden on the world with Cadeliah, the heir to the Unbroken Clan and Mourner's Wail crime syndicates.[15][16] T'onga was injured by Boba Fett in orbit, but was healed by a man who owned a nexu. T'onga's wife Losha Tarkon found her there, and the two set off from Ruusan together with the nexu to avenge Lash.[8][17]

The planet shared its name with the Ruusan Reformations, an event of governmental reform in the Galactic Republic,[18] and the Ruusan Armistice, a truce that led to the creation of new standards of humane behavior in wartime.[19]

Behind the scenes[]

Ruusan made its first appearance in Star Wars canon in "Duel of the Droids," the seventh episode of the animated television series Star Wars: The Clone Wars' first season,[5] which originally aired on November 14, 2008.[20]

The planet was originally created for the Star Wars Legends video game Star Wars: Jedi Knight: Dark Forces II, where it played a prominent role as the location of the powerful Force nexus known as the Valley of the Jedi.[21] In Legends, it was later revealed as the site of the final battle of the New Sith Wars,[22] which served as the catalyst for the Ruusan Reformation that reorganized the Galactic Republic.[23]

The 2017 reference book Star Wars: The Visual Encyclopedia mistakenly depicts Ruusan using an image of the Ruusan moon.[10]
