Zeffo was a windswept planet located in the Outer Rim Territories. A water-rich world, its terrain consisted of rocky mountains and cliffs, and its surface was covered in grass. The planet featured a number of ruins and crypts that were protected by the Tomb Guardians. Zeffo was home to a number of creatures, including the phillak and the scazz. Zeffo was once home to a community of archaeologists and pioneers who visited the planet during the time of the Galactic Republic. When the Galactic Empire rose to power, the peaceful community was destroyed by the pillaging of historical sites and sacred tombs. The Emperor sought valuable information on Zeffo, as did the former Jedi Padawan Cal Kestis.
History[edit | edit source]
The Zeffo[edit | edit source]
In its early history, Zeffo was home to the Force-sensitive species named the Zeffo. During their time of rule, they constructed many statues and relics. They left behind many tombs, dedicated to several Zeffo sages, protected by Tomb Guardians.
Republic Era[edit | edit source]
At some point during this era, a Republic Venator-class Star Destroyer, under the command of General Chiata, crash landed on Zeffo. Shortly after the crash, Chiata's unit of Clone Troopers were ordered to carry out Order 66, killing Chiata and her padawan Marseph.
Imperial Occupation[edit | edit source]
- "In accordance with the Emperor's will we've occupied Zeffo, "redistributing" its inhabitants. This planet has failed to yield significant data or relics for Project Auger. Its electromagnetic winds have rendered the bulk of our mining technology useless. Meanwhile, more troopers lose their lives to dangerous fauna. We will not be able to fulfill our directive here. It is my recommendation that we disband the project and leave a token outpost to keep scavengers from stealing our technology."

Under Imperial occupation, Zeffos ice caves and many other areas were excavated as part of Project Auger to excavate for resources for the Death Star. In search for Zeffo artifacts, the Empire drove many Zeffo inhabitants from their homes in the villages.
