Zeitooine was a jungle planet located in the Inner Rim. The planet had only a handful of cities. It was a cold world with jungles of deciduous trees that became covered in hard frost in the winter. During the High Republic Era, the Jedi Order carried out a mission on Zeitooine, which Jedi Knight Dez Rydan was assigned to before eventually requesting a transfer to the Starlight Beacon as he secretly feared he was in danger of giving in to his anger if he stayed any longer. Seven months after the Battle of Yavin, the former TIE fighter pilot Thane Kyrell visited Zeitooine while he was working as a navigator and co-pilot aboard the Mighty Oak Apocalypse. After he and his fellow crew delivered a shipment of constructor droids, Thane went to purchase new power cells but was distracted by the arrest of a local family.
