"They were Weequay, natives of the desert world Sriluur."
Count Dooku[src]

Sriluur was a desert planet[3] located in the Hutt Space region of the galaxy's Outer Rim Territories[1] that was the homeworld of the Weequays, a species whose tough, leathery skin helped them endure its harsh conditions,[3] and the Sriluurian butterfly.[4]

Sriluur was conquered by the Hutt Cartel, which was controlled by the Hutts from the neighboring world of Nal Hutta, who turned the Weequays into slaves or vassals.[1] The pirate Hondo Ohnaka, leader of the Ohnaka Gang, was a male Weequay from this world.[5]

Behind the scenes[]

Sriluur was first mentioned in "The Greel Wood Haven," an article written by Craig Robert Carey[6] that was published in Star Wars Adventure Journal 6, which was released in May of 1995.[7] It became canon when it was mentioned in Ultimate Star Wars, a reference book co-written by Patricia Barr, Adam Bray, Daniel Wallace, and Ryder Windham[5] that was released on April 28, 2015.[8] Sriluur's status as a planet and the homeworld of the Weequay species was made canon by Star Wars: Absolutely Everything You Need to Know, a reference book written by Adam Bray, Kerrie Dougherty, Cole Horton, and Michael Kogge[3] that was released on September 4, 2015.[9]
