Baskarn was a planet in the Outer Rim. The planet was inhabited by the large green-furred Force-sensitive Yrashu. The planet was also home to the dangerous Razor trees. Baskarn was the site of the Battle of Baskarn in which the indigenous Yrashu instinctively fought the Galactic Empire, as they could sense its ties to the dark side of the Force. In the events leading up to the battle, a group of Rebels were adopted into a Yrashu tribe and went through a momu, in which they were taught jungle survival according to the Yrashu way. The tribe participated in the battle, and emerged victorious along with the Rebels.
