This article is about the Jinata system planet. You may be looking for Vardoss IV.

Vardos was a planet located in the Jinata system[2] in the galaxy's Core Worlds[1] that was home to Iden and Garrick Versio.[2] It was described as an "Imperial utopia".[3] The planet was notable for its diversity and loyalty, with even the planet's many alien inhabitants expressing faith in the Empire.[4]

Vardos was the location of the Future Imperial Leaders Military Preparatory School. Iden attended the school from a young age, and upon graduation finished at the top of her class with honors.[2]

Following the Battle of Endor, Vardos was a target of Operation: Cinder, and saw the defection of Inferno Squad against the Empire.[4]

By 34 ABY, Vardos was controlled by the First Order and ruled by Protectorate Gleb who, with the help of the local Jinata Security Forces, was overseeing the process of rebuilding the planet, with the capital Kestro still uninhabited. Following Gleb's death at the hands of First Order Commander Gideon Hask and the First Order's attempt to put the planet under their direct rule, the Jinata Security rebelled against them.[4]
