Surabat Vicinity was a tiny settlement located in the Surabat River Valley on the planet Batuu. Its residents were hardy and reserved folks, many of whom were involved in the dangerous task of harvesting the Golden Lichen that grew on the spires that surrounded the vicinity.

DescriptionEdit

Surabat Vicinity was a tiny town inhabited by a small residential community located in the Surabat River Valley on the planet Batuu. It was a beautiful location, but wild, remote and isolated with harsh weather conditions including most days being windy and the winter seasons being snowy. Surabat Vicinity was surrounded by valleys, giant spires and mountains. During the war between the First Order and the Resistance, the town had few modern conveniences.[1]

Housing in the vicinity included apartment buildings built into large spires that could house several families, large houses that were occupied by single families. There were also small houses made of wood and mud similar in design to the architecture found in Black Spire Outpost, some of which underground rooms.[1]

InhabitantsEdit

The residents of Surabat Vicinity were strong, hardy and reserved individuals who built their homes nestled against the base of the giant spires and mountains that surrounded the settlement. Many came from families involved in crop farming and raising livestock.[1]

A large number of residents were involved in the dangerous work of harvesting the Golden Lichen that grew on the spires near their homes, although some of the inhabitants commuted into Black Spire Outpost for work. Those that commuted met each day at the vicinity's depot and boarded a shuttle belonging to Oga Garra, who owned Oga's Cantina in the outpost. Once the work day was over, the shuttle would also carry the residents home.[1]

Behind the scenesEdit

Surabat Vicinity was created for Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge,[1] a theme park land that opened at Disneyland Park on May 31, 2019.[2]
