A planet was located on the edges of the Torch Nebula, a nebula in the Outer Rim Territories of the galaxy. A nameless jungle world, the planet was believed by biologists serving the Hutt Cartel to be the homeworld of the lurker, an amphibious bipedal creature that was first identified in the larger galaxy at some point by 3840 BBY.
Behind the scenes
The jungle world was first mentioned in the Codex entry for lurkers in Star Wars: The Old Republic, a video game released by BioWare in 2011. The 2009 reference book The Essential Atlas placed the Torch Nebula, and therefore the unnamed planet, within grid square P-19. Following the April 25, 2014 discontinuation of the Star Wars Legends continuity, the homeworld of the lurkers was re-introduced into the new Star Wars canon and given the name Judakann by Poe Dameron: Free Fall, a 2020 novel by Alex Segura.

Notes and references
- Torch Nebula — Based on corresponding data for the
- Star Wars: The Old Republic—Codex: "Lurker"
- Per the reasoning here, Act III of Star Wars: The Old Republic takes place around 3640 BBY. Since the Codex entry for lurkers can only be discovered on Belsavis, which is visited by all classes in Act III, the information contained therein can be dated to 3640 BBY. The Codex entry states that lurkers became known in the wider galaxy two hundred years before the events of the game, which corresponds to 3840 BBY.
