Tund was a planet in the Tund system of the Centrality, located on the Outer Rim of the galaxy. It was formerly a beautiful world awash in life, with terrain including rainforests and prairies.

The planet was the homeworld of Ben Quadinaros.


Once belonging to the tiny empire of the Sharu, the planet teemed with thick-leafed vines and was roamed by hard-shelled arthropods. The planet had a strong Force signature, and after the death of Adas and its liberation from the Infinite Empire, it attracted a ship (which possibly had a Rakatan hyperdrive) of Sith priest heretic outcasts who had interpreted the death of Adas during the Invasion of Korriban as a sign to reject the dark side.[3]

After the Dark Jedi conquered Sith space in 6900 BBY, Sith-human hybrids arrived and joined the Sith on the planet.[1] After the near eradication of the Sith in the Old Sith Wars, the planet became a haven for Kissai and Massassi refugees.[3]

On Tund they established a society that would be known as the Sorcerers of Tund,[3] who were reticent in accepting others into their society, believing that only true Sith could grasp the truth about the Force.[3] However, as these Kissai and Massassi were descended from outcasts much like themselves, the sorcerers welcomed them into their society.[3]


Toongs on Tund

Tund was also one of many planets colonized by the Toongs after neighboring Toong'L was devastated by a collision with two poisonous comets in 45 BBY. Although there was a low population count on Tund before the Toong colonies arose, the Sorcerers did not take warmly to the outsiders, with several colonies suffering great losses during the time of the Galactic Republic's collapse.

At some point after the formation of the Galactic Empire, an electromagnetic torpedo was unleashed on the world by Rokur Gepta, the last Sorcerer of Tund who wanted the dark side lore for himself.[5] By 5 BBY the planet was a desolate wasteland full of deadly radiation, except in some places where the radiation was held in check by force fields. Even in these areas it would have taken billions of years for life to grow again.

Behind the scenesEdit

The PC game Star Wars: Rebellion mistakenly places Tund in the Xappyh sector. In early scripts of Star Wars: Episode I The Phantom Menace, the Podracer pilot, Slide Paramita was said to have originated from Tund. However, Paramita was ultimately cut from the script and Tund remained as the homeworld of the Toong Podracer pilot, Ben Quadinaros.
