Iridonia was a planet in the galaxy and the homeworld of the Zabrak species; Darth Maul was born on Iridonia sometime prior to 41 BBY. The planet was also the location of battles during the Alsakan Crisis and the Hutt War.


In 13,000 BBY, during the war between the Galactic Republic and the Alsakan Union, an Alsakan freighter crash-landed on Iridonia. Republic soldiers landed on the planet and surrounded the vessel, prompting a skirmish that lasted throughout the night. Members of the Jedi Order also participated in the conflict.[1]

Twenty-one years later, in 12,979 BBY, Iridonia again became the location of a battle involving Republic forces. After years of tension, the Republic and the Hutt Empire—which accused the Republic's policy of expansion into the Mid Rim of being part of a policy to expand into the Hutt-controlled Outer Rim Territories—agreed to hold high level negotiations on the planet between Supreme Chancellor Homer Anthony Salandra and Hutt Chairman Gorbagg. A battle broke out between the two sides—it was not known who fired the first shots—and the Hutt War began.[3]

Thousands of years later, sometime prior to 41 BBY, the Sith Lord Darth Maul was born on Iridonia.[2]
