The Walin'or system was located in the Shiwal sector, a part of the New Territories portion of the Mid Rim. A hyperlane connected the star system to the Mapuzo system in the Hollan sector and the Belukat system in the Expansion Region.
The Walin'or system was the origin point of the Rebel Alliance's Walin'or cell. By 12 ABY, Walin'or served as a New Republic stronghold. That year, the New Republic fleet carrier Endurance traveled through the Walin'or system as part of a military campaign against the forces of the Imperial Remnant.
Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]
The Walin'or system was first mentioned in the 2009 reference book The Essential Atlas, authored by Daniel Wallace and Jason Fry, which placed it in grid square M-7. In a map of the Mid Rim included in the book, the system's name was misspelled as "Walinor."

- Jason Fry, co-author of The Essential Atlas, stated his intention to create homeworlds for numerous species based on context implied from their names. Given this principle, this article makes a similar basic assumption for the Walin'or cell in relation to the Walin'or system. "I wouldn't get your hopes up re alien homeworlds, beyond simple stuff like the Planetnamian species getting a Planetnamia on the map or things Dan and I can account for with a relatively quick reference."
