The lower recesses of the Sand Splitter Cave.

The Sand Splitter Cave was a cave located on the planet Tatooine, west of the Western Dune Sea and south of the Valley of the Winds.


Sometime following the Battle of Yavin in 0 BBY, the cave was used as a base of operations for a criminal organization known as the Sand Splitters. Among the cave's residents included a number of Sand Splitter knaves and brutes, and two of the organization's leaders, a Trandoshan named Erib Kurrugh and a Human named Saul Rouse. When the Sand Splitters stole Jabba Desilijic Tiure ledger and prototype warhead, Ree-Yees tasked a spacer with recovering the stolen items, and killing the two founders, with the hope that the criminal organization would collapse without the guidance of their leaders.[1]

Behind the scenesEdit
