- "Come see spectacular Teyr Rift. Then go home."
- ―Popular unofficial tourism motto
It was a popular tourist destination, known for its majestic mountains and the breathtaking Teyr Rift. Thousands of cruise ships, yachts, and other tourist vessels arrived daily at overcrowded orbital facilities from which passengers were ferried down to the planet. The Rift Skyrail connected all Teyr's spaceports with all major population centers and resort destinations in the Rift Territory.
- "What about Ganner?"
"He's from Teyr—he wouldn't know odds from groats. He's good in a fight, though, and smart when he thinks before acting. And handsome, too, as you've probably noticed."
- ―Jaina Solo and Corran Horn
The planet was colonized by at least 496 BBY.
By 16 ABY, Teyr was one of the New Republic's boom worlds. Fearing unbridled growth, Teyr's leaders created the Citizen Services Corps and tried to discourage immigrants with a maze of regulations. During the Black Fleet Crisis, Jedi Master Luke Skywalker and his companion Akanah traveled to the planet seeking traces of the Fallanassi.
