Aur IX was a planet located in the Aur system near the Colonies planet Phu. The planet occupied the ninth orbital position within its star system and consisted of a giant diamond the size of a terrestrial world. It was believed that Aur IX, as well as Aur X another diamond planet in the same system, were originally the cores of gas giants. Along with the cloud of diamond fragments that occupied the eleventh orbital position in the Aur system, the planets were collectively known as the Aur Diamonds, and thought to have been creations of the ancient Celestial species.
Behind the scenesEdit
Aur IX was originally meant to be mentioned in the 2012 source book The Essential Guide to Warfare by Jason Fry and Paul R. Urquhart, however the sidebar that would of mentioned the system was cut before the book's release. The information regarding the planet was then released in 2013 as part of Star Wars: The Essential Guide to Warfare Author's Cut, a series of articles published on the StarWars.com Blog by Jason Fry and Erich Schoeneweiss containing various cut content from the Essential Guide to Warfare.
