List of Star Wars planets (K-L)

Kalakar VI was a volcanic spoon of Dromund Kalakar in the Outer Rim. It was a Dark Side nexus which attracted the Prophets of the Dark Side from nearby Dromund Kaas about 100 BBY, having previously been occupied by the Sith Empire. It was covered in lava flows, its crust riddled with magma tunnels.

Darth Vader came to the moon in an attempt to intercept the Rebels carrying the Death Star I plans. The Rebels were not there: Vader had been lured to the moon with false information by the local Prophets, whom pitted Vader against a clone of Darth Maul. Vader killed the pseudo Maul. Palpatine himself arrived on the moon in a Lambda-class shuttle, killing the Prophets and retrieving Vader. Vader suspected the entire ordeal had been a test arranged by the Emperor. This planet appears in "Resurrections", in Star Wars Tales 9. While initially non-canonical, it has since been upgraded to C-canon.

Kalarba

The planet Kalarba was the capital of Kalarba Sector. The droids R2-D2 and C-3PO had a number of adventures on Kalarba while in the ownership of a local baron. The planet was devastated when the Yuuzhan Vong crashed Hosk Station into it.

Kalee

Kalee was the home planet to the Kaleesh, including cyborg General Grievous, a warlord who hailed from this planet. Kalee was covered in tropical looking foliage and beaches. Moss-covered canyons and cliffs filled the landscapes. It was apparently an intensely harsh world, and lacking in many natural resources. The Kaleesh housing and buildings were very temple-like and primitive. The Kaleesh were hunter-warriors, hunting deadly predators such as Mumuu and Karabbac beasts to make ceremonial cloaks and war masks. The warlords ruled over the Kaleesh people and the planet was terrorized for decades to come.

Prior to The Clone Wars, the Galactic Republic sided with the Huks against the Kaleesh in the Huk Wars, defeating the Kaleesh. During the Wars, the Kaleesh were winning under the leadership of General Grievous. The Republic destroyed trade, blockading his world. Then the Banking Clan came, paying the planet's enormous debt, and feeding the starving. The war now over, the Clan asked only one thing: Grievous's alliance. Although debt collection was a far cry from war, Grievous was satisfied... until he was incapacitated in a shuttle crash arranged by the InterGalactic Banking Clan. Banking Clan leader San Hill paid for a cybernetic suit to be built by the Geonosians for Grievous, who became leader of the Separatist military forces. In return for Grievous's services, the InterGalactic Banking Clan financed the economic recovery of the presumably ruined Kalee and helped the planet out of depression after the Huk War.

Kalist VI

Kalist VI is the homeworld of Dack Ralter, Luke Skywalker's snowspeeder tail-gunner, who was killed during the Battle of Hoth.

It is a bleak, mountainous, desert planet with an Imperial base. Approximately 8 months after the Battle of Yavin the Empire took Jabiimi prisoners, as well as Jorin Sol, to the base where the Jabiimi were used for slave labour and Sol was tortured for information regarding the location of the Rebel Fleet. A Rebel team including Luke Skywalker successfully infiltrated the base posing as the crew of the Imperial tanker Nuna's Twins, with the intention of retrieving Sol. Luring most of the base's troops off-planet and into a trap, the Rebels rescued Sol and the prisoners, causing heavy damage to the base. After the attack the base was repaired and reinforced suspiciously quickly.

Kamino

Kamino (pronounced kuh-MEE-no) is completely covered in oceans after an enormous flood that wiped across its surface, and it is always covered with clouds and rain. It is inhabited by a race of tall, elegant creatures, called Kaminoans, an isolationist species known for their cloning technology. The Kaminoan capital is Tipoca City.

Obi-Wan Kenobi was directed here in Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones to follow a lead on the whereabouts of Senator Amidala's would-be assassin through a single poison dart. During Obi-Wan's stay on Kamino,he discovered that the Kaminoans have created an army of 200,000 clones from a single bounty hunter for the purpose of giving it to the Republic as a standing army. The Kaminoan leader also told him that they are currently breeding another 1,000,000 soldiers and that the army have been requested by a now-deceased Jedi Master.

Kaminoans are known for their illusive technology, expertise in cloning, and their dealings with only the super-rich.

Kashyyyk

Kashyyyk (pronounced ka-SHEEK) is the lush, tree-filled home planet of the Wookiees. This planet resembles Earth to some extent, although not as closely as Alderaan, Bastion, or Naboo. Although there are plains and lakes on its surface, most of it is covered by miles-high wroshyr trees, hiding beneath their branches the dark, swampy Shadowlands. The Wookiees live in the trees and most never venture to the forest floor. Many high mountains lead up into the clouds. The Wookiees have a long history of warfare with the reptilian Trandoshans from nearby Trandosha. Kashyyyk has the Gryyyl asteroid belt around it. They also fought a large ground battle against the Separatists during the waning days of the Clone Wars. There are also two urban cities on Kashyyyk.

Kashyyyk is home to a number of facilities valuable to the Republic, especially oil refineries, over which these battles were fought.Kashyyk is also home to the Wookie Chewbacca

Kassa

Kassa is the innermost planet of the Adega system. Its terrain is composed of searing rock.References {http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Kassa

Katarr

Katarr's primary sentient inhabitants are Miraluka, a Force-sensitive race. The planet was sapped of all life by the Sith Lord Darth Nihilus. The only known survivor of this tragedy was Visas Marr, who was taken into bound service by Darth Nihilus. The reason Nihilus drained the Miraluka was for a group of Jedi who were gathering on planet to try to see the threat that was stalking them, their gathering only caused him to come and sap the planet.

Kejim

Kejim is the location of an abandoned Imperial base, where some intriguing messages concerning the Valley of the Jedi and "Reborn Jedi" emanate, thus starting the plot of Star Wars Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast. The part of the planet seen in the game is a desolate, barren place, but is capable of supporting life.

Kelchase

Kelchase is the home world of the Kels. Around 20 ABY, many New Jedi Order training Missions took place here. It is a dry barren forest world.

Keres II

Keres II Is the ninth planet in the Empress Teta System and is moonless and frozen. This planet is sparsely populated and is probably only colonised at all because of the ancient importance of valuable spices to the Empress Teta System itself.

Kerilt

Kerilt is a planet that had a boom in population after the Clone Wars because many Caamasi survivors from another planet called Caamas came here.

Kessel

Kessel is a prison planet and home to one of the galaxy's largest spice mining operations which was mentioned in Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope by C-3PO. It is the only source of the glitterstim spice, an extremely rare and valuable drug used therapeutically and euphorically. Located in the Outer Rim, Kessel was administered by Moruth Doole who ran a prison work camp to harvest glitterstim. Later, Lando Calrissian obtained control of Kessel and replaced the prison workers with droids. _Empire_at_War:_Forces_of_Corruption#Plot spent a short time here after Jabba the Hutt turned him in to the Empire. He organized a prison riot so he could escape.

Kessel's name comes from a slight alteration of the German town name Kassel. Which is also the German word for "guarded area", enclosure, or more literally a "Castle", reference to its guarded nature and prison facilities. Kessel is located in the Kessel sector, near Hutt Space. Nearby is The Maw, a cluster of black holes. The planet has a barren landscape of rock and a thin atmosphere. The little air it does have is generated at factories on the surface which slowly bleeds away into space leaving a trail behind the planet. It had a moon called Garrison Moon, which was destroyed by the prototype Death Star.

In Rogue Squadron for the Nintendo 64, a level takes place on Kessel in which the player is to rescue Wedge (who ostensibly worked in the mines) from a prison train. Since the player is bound to an X-Wing (or other period spacecraft of the player's choice) the rescues involves disabling the engine located at the front of the train using an ion cannon. The surface of the planet consists of light rolling hills, covered in what appears to be rust, giving it an appearance similar to that of Mars.

The gravity distortions of the nearby Maw warp space makes it tremendously difficult to navigate a starship through it without a highly skilled pilot. Ships approaching Kessel take long winding courses through the Maw to avoid the danger of being sucked into a gravity well. On a mission where he was pressed for time, Han Solo was able to navigate the shortest course through the Maw in "less than twelve parsecs." With the boosted speed of the Millennium Falcon, Solo managed to haul a load of spice for the Hutts in record time and earned a reputation as a top-rate smuggler. In Star Wars: Jedi Search, book one of the Jedi Academy trilogy, Han Solo crash lands on the planet and has to work in the spice mines.

Various novels (including Jedi Academy) indicate that Kessel is on course to fall into the Maw in about 1000ABY.

In Decipher's Star Wars CCG, the planet Kessel was depicted as a bean-shaped planet with a small moon.

Khomm

Khomm is a planet in the core worlds which is a clone world. All of Khomm's people are genderless and cannot support life. This is due to their race reaching a satisfactory stage in their evolution, at which point they switched to a cloning-based society and covered their planet's surface with cloning facilities. Consequently it was rare for any of the people to be Force sensitive, because Khomm's first people were not; though this did not prevent a random mutation that allowed Dorsk 81 and Dorsk 82 to be Force sensitive. Khomm would be one of the first planets attacked by Admiral Daala's Victory-class Star Destroyer swarms, after she consolidated power in the Core.

Kiffex

Kiffex is the home planet of the Tonnika Sisters (moderately well known con artists who got in trouble with an Imperial Moff).
Kiffex is the twin planet of Kiffu.

Kiffu

Kiffu is the home planet of the Kiffar and Jedi Knight Quinlan Vos. Kiffu is the twin planet of Kiffex and home to the vampire-like Anzati. From Kiffu, the planets of Cinnigar and Korriban are visible, but not the planet of Koros Minor because of the seven moons blocking it. Five of the seven moons are visible at a time.

Kile II

Kile II is a small rocky canyon planet that held military bases for the Imperial Navy in that sector. The deep infinite trenches also held an Imperial sensor array and spaceport until Rogue Squadron ambushed and destroyed all military facilities.

King's Galquek

King's Galquek is a planet in the Chorios Systems, deep within the Meridian Sector. The Loronar Corporation was heavily involved in planetary operations on the planet.

Kintan

Kintan is the homeworld of the Niktos. After a supernova explosion in the system, evolution of the same species on Kintan subdivided into five groups.

Kinyen

Kinyen is home to the Gran race. It is a lush green world, perfect for its herbivoris inhabitants to live upon.

Kirdo III

Kirdo III is the homeworld of the Kitonaks. It is a desert planet, much like Tatooine.

Kiva

Kiva is a barren and desolate rocky planet. It was once inhabited by a humanoid species, but the planet's surface was destroyed when Imperial scientist Borborygmus Gog conducted a top-secret experiment over his better judgement. The explosion that ensued killed all of the planet's life. Gog and his partner, Mammon Hoole, barely escaped the destruction. The Empire blamed Hoole for the destruction and he, out of shame, abandoned his first name.

Even though the planet was now barren and uninhabitable, Gog maintained a laboratory on Kiva, where he finished "Project Starscream". Project Starscream was a project like the Dark Troopers, in which the goal was to create for the Imperial military a seemingly indestructible creature. The original prototype creature was destroyed by Gog (aided by two orphans, Tash and Zak) when it eventually turned on him.

Kiva was also inhabited by a race of shadow people, formed by Gog's explosion, who sought vengeance for their genocide. They accused Mammon Hoole of the destruction, but discovered the real criminal was Gog, whom they destroyed with a burst of hate. After their revenge was finished, they disappeared, since they were beings of hate, obsessed with justice. After this incident Kiva was left barren, desolate, and completely uninhabited.

Klatooine

Klatooine (pronounced KLAT-too-een) is the homeworld of the Klatooinians, a highly religious humanoid species who are completely bound by a sacred treaty to the will of the Hutts. Very little is known about this world other than it has delicious paddy frogs and almost certainly is located in Hutt Space.

Kooriva

Kooriva is the home planet of the Koorivar species. It is also the planet where the Corporate Alliance was created.

Koros Major

Koros Major is the former name of the planet Empress Teta.

Koros Minor

Koros Minor is a planet in the Empress Teta System, which was formerly known as the Koros System.

Korriban

Korriban, also known as the Sith planet during the Sith and Jedi Civil Wars. Korriban is the sole planet in the Horuset System. It was used as a graveyard for Ancient Sith and was later reborn as a home and training ground for modern Sith. It was once a slave world of the Infinite Empire many millennia before the first Sith Lords came. Sith Lord Naga Sadow built his tomb millennia later around the Star Map, a relic of the time when the Rakata had used the Star Forge. Carved into the sheer rock walls of these canyons are immense tombs containing the desiccated, mummified remains of the various Dark Lords of the Sith like Marka Ragnos, Naga Sadow, Ludo Kresh, and Ajunta Pall as well as other powerful Dark Masters from various millennia.

Korriban was originally inhabited by the Sith race. The Dark Jedi amazed the Sith with their training in the Force, and soon elevated themselves to a god-like status, becoming the rulers, or "Lords," of the Sith. As the years passed, interbreeding occurred between the human Dark Jedi and the Sith, until at last the two people had become one. Korriban know survives as a graveyard for all the Sith who died during the wars, many artifacts are rumoured to be in the Sith Academy.

Kothis

A temperate planet that is famous for its state of the art ships and dedication to the Empire. The Imperials have a garrison outside of the capitol, Kyleck. It is a large planet with two moons, Tritus and Kethor. They produce the ships on Kethor to keep the planet clean.

Kothlis

Kothlis is a terrestrial planet located in the Kothlis system. It is a Bothan colony, only notable in Star Wars: Shadows of the Empire for being the rendezvous point where the plans for the second Death Star were taken after being recovered by a group of Rebel Alliance Commandos and heroes, including Dash Rendar and Luke Skywalker. It also gets a level in the video game Rogue Squadron II: Rogue Leader, titled "Vengeance on Kothlis". In this level, Rogue Squadron reclaims a blockade runner captured by a Star Destroyer. A very similar mission is also portrayed in the game X-wing Alliance. The planet's surface shows surface water and tropical shores; whether this is a running trend is not known.

Kothlis was also the homeworld of New Republic Senator and later Chief of State Borsk Fey'lya. Kothlis is considered second tier to the main Bothan homeworld, Bothawui, making the inhabitants more motivated and achieving than their better off counterparts.

Kuan

Kuan, on the Outer Rim, is the home of Imperial pilot Maarek Stele, the presumed protagonist in Star Wars: TIE Fighter.

Kuat

Kuat is the home of Kuat Drive Yards, a production company that made most of the capital ships for the Old Republic and Galactic Empire during the Galactic Civil War. Kuat is located in the Kuat sector, in the Kuat system, near the Deep Core.

During Imperial control, Kuat could only be accessed via three ports within the main Kuat Traffic Zone, which was along the Hydian Way: a passenger port, a freight port, and an Imperial transfer port. After the Death Star 2 was destroyed, _Empire_at_War:_Forces_of_Corruption#Plot attacked with the help of the Rebel Alliance to obtain the new super ship the Eclipse.

Accessible to the passenger port were the systems of Redrish, Drurish, Ulion, and Kidir.

Accessible to the freight port were the systems of Monadin, Renegg, Venir, and Horthav.

All systems accessible to the Imperial transfer port were classified.

Kuat is a temperate world, much like Earth, with fields, plains, rivers and oceans, but is orbited by a huge artificial ring which acts as the shipyard for Kuat Drive Yards, Kuat Systems Engineering, and Kuat Hypernautics. The humans that inhabit Kuat - Kuati - are of a clannish nature, and they stick close to their family groups.

Kuat is also a playable planet in the game Star Wars: Empire at War.

Langoria

Langoria was once home to a thriving alien civilization thought to date back to the glory days of the Jedi, though there is no evidence that this civilization had any contact with Coruscant or the worlds of the Old Republic. What became of this alien civilization is unknown, but all that remains of it are magnificent ruins scattered across the globe, mostly reclaimed by the encroaching wilderness. This alien civilization made use of a strange technology beyond the comprehension of modern science, and though it seems that they did not venture beyond their own planet to explore elsewhere in the galaxy, they were able to accomplish marvelous feats of engineering—carving mountains into the likeness of their leaders or gods, and even somehow altering weather patterns to their liking. It is hypothesized that they abused these abilities, altering their homeworld to such a degree that it was no longer habitable for them.

Lannik

Lannik is a planet in the Mid Rim immediately outside Hutt Space.

Leria Kerlsil

Leria Kerlsil is a small and rather pleasant world, and the home of Karia Ver Seryan, one of Lando Calrissian's potential suitors.

Lehon

Lehon is a world that was home to the extinct, force-sensitve Rakata tribe. It was also home of the infamous Starforge. It is also where Darth Bane found the last known Sith holocron.

Lok

Lok is a desert planet similar to Tatooine and Geonosis. It is not far from Naboo. It appears in the video games Star Wars: Starfighter, and Star Wars: Jedi Starfighter. It also appears in the MMORPG "Star Wars Galaxies". There is only one settlement during the time of the Empire.

One of the first planets in the Karthakk system to be colonized, the harsh world of Lok was originally home to outlaws, who saw the world as a potential staging ground for raids into the Mid-Rim. Over time, Lok became known as a "pirate world," where anarchy and violence were the only constants.

Lok has fairly varied terrain, ranging from the dangerous sulfur pools to bubbling lava pits. The landscapes are generally foreboding: jagged mountain ranges, long expanses of baked desert, and desolate flats are typical environments on Lok. The presence of pirates and others is evident in the shipwrecks, burned-out bases, abandoned settlements, and destroyed vehicles that litter the planet.

Before the Battle of Naboo, one of the most prominent leaders on Lok was a Feeorin pirate named Nym. The hardy alien - who has only become more formidable with age - spent many years battling the Trade Federation. He is now a local crime lord, but it is also rumored that he is very sympathetic to the Rebellion.

The planet Lok appears in the Star Wars themed MMORPG platform by LucasArts.

Lok (โลก) is also the Thai word for world.

Lorrd

Lorrd is a planet in the Kanz Sector of the Outer Rim. It is well-known for its 400 year history of slavery by a neighboring planet, the highly-developed body language of its inhabitants, and its universities.

Lwhekk

Lwhekk is a hot, jungle-covered planet, the home world of the Ssi-Ruuk and P'w'eck races, and was the center of the Ssi-Ruuvi Imperium. The jungles of Lwhekk were broken by spired cities which appeared to be quite fragile against the jungle. The average day on Lwhekk lasted 32 standard hours, and its years encompassed 344 local days.
