Zeltros was an astronomical object in the galaxy's Inner Rim that had oceans and beaches with tropical trees. Following a massacre aboard the Sorca Retreat, the rogue archaeologist Doctor Chelli Aphra traveled to Zeltros to take a break from her recent misadventures. While relaxing at a beach, being served a Dantooine ice-twist by a service droid, she was confronted by Tukan, who had been tracking her since she killed one of his affiliates, Dukan. Defiant of his attempt to arrest her, Aphra shot him with a blaster she had been concealing. This aggravated Tukan's accomplices, who drew their own blasters on her.
