Yavin: Planet Information


The moon Yavin 4 is a hot jungle world with four main continents separated by six oceans. Volcanic mountain ranges and wide rivers can be found amid the thick jungles. The moon has both a wet and dry season, and chaotic storms whip across its surface every few months. Yavin 4 was settled by a Dark Lord of the Sith, Naga Sadow, and his minions. Over time, survivors of Sadow’s people evolved into the deadly Massassi Warriors, who built dramatic temples throughout the jungles before they vanished into legend.
