Sanctuary Coast was a sprawling city located on the planet Alderaan that was built on enormous stilts on the border of a large inland sea. Throughout the city's history, its leaders were committed to offering assistance to refugees fleeing wars and oppression.

History[]

Sanctuary Coast was a growing Alderaanian city that was built on massive metal stilts on the edge of a large inland sea. The city was originally founded by individuals fleeing old Galactic Republic wars, and during the Clone Wars, upheld its traditions by welcoming refugees. After the rise of the Galactic Empire, many fled to Sanctuary Coast to flee Imperial oppression. Because of this, the Empire maintained a fixed watch on the city, seeking fugitives of its wanted list. Sanctuary Coast's starport maintained a steady stream of starship traffic, which allowed it to conceal occasional transportation of anti-Imperial agents and vessels.[2]

Sanctuary Coast, along with the rest of Alderaan, was destroyed by the Empire's planet-killing battle station, the Death Star.[1]

Behind the scenes[]

Sanctuary Coast was first mentioned in the 2018 Fantasy Flight Games sourcebook Dawn of Rebellion,[2] a sourcebook based off of Star Wars Rebels and Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.[3]
