"Very funny…but I suggest you leave this shuttle…unless you wish to be put into service in the Sulphur Pits of Vulcar!"
―C-3PO, to R2-D2[src]

Vulcar was a baleful orange, sulfurous planet[2] located in the Vulcar system, within the Juvex sector of the galaxy's Mid Rim.[1] A hyperlane branching off the Senex-Juvex Loop connected it to the worlds of Tinallis and Tyluun.[2] Home to the eponymous Sulphur Pits of Vulcar,[3] its acrid atmosphere made employing humanoid workers to extract the world's oridium deposits barely cost-effective. Instead, Vulcar was primarily worked by droids of all types, including crab droids, reprogrammed to serve as miners until they froze up and rusted into scrap.[2] In 15 BBY, an Intergalactic Droid Agency shuttle traveled to the Sulphur Pits of Vulcar[4] after delivering the droids R2-D2 and C-3PO to the planet Dodz.[3]

Behind the scenes[]

Vulcar was first mentioned in Droids (1986) 1, the first issue of the Star Wars Legends Star Wars: Droids comic series published by Star Comics, an imprint of Marvel Comics,[3] which was first published on April 1, 1986.[5] The Essential Atlas, a 2009 reference book written by Jason Fry and Daniel Wallace, pictured the planet for the first time and placed it in grid square L-18.[2]
