"You know, I'm going to start tracking how many times I've saved you. Today, the nest of gundarks, the Moggonite bounty hunter on Vaced."
―Anakin Skywalker, to Obi-Wan Kenobi[1]

Vaced was a terrestrial astronomical object in the galaxy.[1] At some point between 32 BBY and 22 BBY,[2] Jedi Knight Obi-Wan Kenobi and his Padawan, Anakin Skywalker, visited Vaced. The two encountered a Moggonite bounty hunter there, and Skywalker saved Kenobi's life. Later, during a mission to the planet Cato Neimoidia after Skywalker had become a Knight himself, he brought up the incident on Vaced while telling Kenobi he intended to start tracking how many times he had saved the Jedi Master.[1]

Behind the scenes[]

Vaced was first canonically mentioned in the 2022 novel Brotherhood, written by Mike Chen.[1] In the Star Wars Legends continuity, the planet Vaced first appeared in the 2008 novel Millennium Falcon, written by James Luceno.[3] It was first pictured in Duel at Shattered Rock, the third volume of the Star Wars: The Clone Wars: Secret Missions young readers' series, written by Ryder Windham, illustrated by Wayne Lo, and published in 2011.[4]


Notes and references[]

  1. 1.0 1.1 1.2 1.3 1.4 Brotherhood
  2. Brotherhood indicates that Anakin Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi visited Vaced while the former was the latter's Padawan. Skywalker became Kenobi's apprentice in Star Wars: Episode I The Phantom Menace, which is dated to 32 BBY by Star Wars: Galactic Atlas, and is promoted to Jedi Knight in Brotherhood, which is set between the First Battle of Geonosis and the Battle of Christophsis, which are both dated to 22 BBY by Galactic Atlas. As such, the visit to Vaced must have occurred between those two years.
