- "Vodran is a terrible place. It's murky; it's dank. It was the stronghold of Harra the Hutt. She and her collection of scum and troublemakers abandoned Vodran during an Imperial incursion, and as far as we know, the Empire years ago. The swamp has taken back most of the planet."
- ―Gial Ackbar
Vodran was a swampy, murky jungle planet located in Hutt Space. It was the homeworld of the sentient Vodran species, along with dianogas, carnivorous cephalopods that spread themselves across the galaxy by climbing aboard starship bilges and stowing away in their garbage tanks. It was conquered by the Hutt Cartel, which was controlled by the Hutts from the neighboring world of Nal Hutta, who turned the Vodrans into slaves or vassals. Sometime later it was controlled by the First Order after the Hutt Clan abandoned the planet.
