- "Stars can die—?"
"It is the way of the universe, which is another manner of saying that it is the will of the Force. Everything dies. In time, even stars burn out."
- ―Anakin Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi
An ancient star system centered around a dwarf star that eventually came to die. The dwarf, having been hypercompacted into various trace metals, hovered in the system at a temperature only marginally higher than absolute zero. Early in his time as a Jedi Padawan, Anakin Skywalker traveled to the system with his Master, Obi-Wan Kenobi. The older man used the frigid sight to impart a lesson on his apprentice: all things pass in time, and it would be a selfish act to hold on to those attachments after their time was up. Skywalker held on to the memory of the system and its frozen star, haunted by the idea that all things die.
