"Since Sy Myrth is largely self-sufficient and quite wealthy, I think the only thing the planet will "suffer" is being released from the burden of Republic taxation."
―Brookish Boon[src]

Sy Myrth, formerly known as Far Barseg, was a planet located in the Jospro sector of the Outer Rim Territories. It was the homeworld of the Sy Myrthians.


By 25,100 BBY, Sy Myrth was known as Far Barseg. It was absorbed into Xim's Empire as he expanded his borders from the Kingdom of Cron.[2] The planet eventually became a member world of the Galactic Republic.[3]

During the Mandalorian Wars, Sy Myrth was the site of a battle won by the Mandalorian Neo-Crusaders. During the New Sith Wars, the planet was the site of a battle won by the Jedi.[2]

During the Separatist Crisis, Sy Myrth was represented in the Galactic Senate by Toonbuck Toora until the planet seceded in 23 BBY.[3] It was a founding world of the Confederacy of Independent Systems. During the Clone Wars, Sy Myrth was one of the most important factory worlds of the CIS, and part of the "Foundry of the Confederacy". At the end of the war, Toonbuck Toora continued to fight the Galactic Empire, the successor of the Republic, and Sy Myrth became the center of the Sy Myrthian Insurrection. The planet was besieged in 19 BBY by the 12th Imperial Sector Army and Toora was eventually killed at Trasemene.[4]

The planet was later represented in the New Republic Senate.[5]

Behind the scenes[]

According to Leland Chee's "Ask Lobot" article in Star Wars Insider 101, "There has been some suggestion that the Toonbuck Toora we see on Geonosis was actually a Shi'ido shape-shifter involved in a duplicitous ploy to bring Sy Myrth to the Confederacy. In that scenario, the plot is ultimately foiled, leaving the planet firmly loyal to the Republic." If this scenario is made canon, the HNN stories of the planet seceding will have to reflect an untrue rumor in-universe.
