The Tarchalia system was a star system located in the Shiwal sector of the galaxy's Mid Rim[2] and New Territories regions.[1] It was home to the creatures known as Tarchalian gazelles.[3][4]

The system fell within the borders of the Galactic Republic during the Clone Wars, a conflict between the Republic and the Confederacy of Independent Systems,[1] and was situated within the territory of the New Republic in 12 ABY.[2]

Behind the scenes[]

The Tarchalia system was first mentioned in the 2009 reference book The Essential Atlas, written by Jason Fry and Daniel Wallace, which placed the system in grid square L-7.[1]

Although the StarWars.com Online Companion to The Essential Atlas placed the system within the Luuq sector,[5] the 2012 reference book The Essential Guide to Warfare depicted it as being located in the Shiwal sector,[2] which is more consistent with the system's earlier depiction on a map within The Essential Atlas.[1]
