Around 3 ABY, the bounty hunter Renlo announced at "Arc of Fire" his intention to capture the smuggler Han Solo. Months later, Renlo returned to the Selenius establishment defeated and proceeded to spend his days there lamenting his failure.

- ―A bounty hunter, on Renlo
At some point by 3 ABY, the bounty hunter Renlo entered "Arc of Fire" Bar & Grill at Selenius VII and announced to everyone present his intent to capture Han Solo, a smuggler with a significant bounty on his head. Following the announcement, Renlo bought beverages for all the patrons of the establishment and then left to pursue the smuggler.
Fifteen months later, the bounty hunter returned to "Arc of Fire," having been defeated by his quarry and having lost both his equipment and his starship. Renlo spent the following days at "Arc of Fire" lamenting his near-capture of the smuggler. Around that time, another bounty hunter mentioned Renlo's experiences in a conversation held at the Selenius VII establishment.
The establishment known as "Arc of Fire" Bar & Grill was located at Selenius VII.
Behind the scenes
Selenius VII was introduced in "Almost Had 'Im," a short companion narrative included in the 1994 sourcebook Galaxy Guide 10: Bounty Hunters. The book was authored by Rick D. Stuart and published by West End Games for use with Star Wars: The Roleplaying Game. The 2009 reference book The Essential Atlas provided a shortened name for the celestial body and placed it in grid square L-17.

Notes and references
- The Essential Atlas
- Galaxy Guide 10: Bounty Hunters is set before the events of Star Wars: Episode VI Return of the Jedi, which The New Essential Chronology dates to 4 ABY. Since "Almost Had 'Im" establishes that Renlo first entered "Arc of Fire" Bar & Grill at least fifteen months prior to the conversation taking place in the narrative, the former event must have happened at some point by 3 ABY.
