Concord Dawn was the homeworld of notorious bounty hunter Rako Hardeen, who was nicknamed the "Marksman of Concord Dawn". Famous for its elite warriors, the planet was devastated during one of its hundred wars, with a large chunk of its southern hemisphere being wiped out. During the Age of the Empire, Concord Dawn was ruled by the Protectors. Under the leadership of Fenn Rau, the Protectors aligned themselves with the Galactic Empire. Three years before the Battle of Yavin, they attacked members of the Phoenix rebel cell, who had traveled to the planet seeking free passage to the Lothal sector. In retaliation, the rebels Kanan Jarrus and Sabine Wren attacked their camp and kidnapped Rau, who agreed to allow the rebels free passage through Concord Dawn.
At some point, the bounty hunter Rako Hardeen was born on the shattered planet of Concord Dawn. Due to his excellent skills as a marksman, Hardeen earned the nickname the "Marksman of Concord Dawn". Concord Dawn was also famous for its elite Mandalorian warriors, and during one of its many wars, much of the planet's southern hemisphere was wiped out, turning into much smaller asteroid chunks.
During the Age of the Empire, the Protectors, a group of Mandalorian warriors who once served the ruler of Mandalore before its Imperial occupation, ruled Concord Dawn along with its third moon, where they set up a camp. Led by Fenn Rau, the Protectors aligned themselves with the Empire, and three years before the Battle of Yavin, an aerial engagement with members of the Phoenix rebel cell, who were seeking free passage to the Lothal sector. The members of the cell escaped, however the Jedi Kanan Jarrus and the Mandalorian Sabine Wren assaulted the Protectors' base.
Rau and Jarrus ended up in conversation, when they realized that both had been involved in the Third Battle of Mygeeto, where Jarrus and his master Depa Billaba were saved by Rau and Skull Squadron from a Separatist attack. After some more encounters with the hiding Wren, who had planted several bombs around the base and had envoked the Mandalorian code, Rau's starfighters were destroyed, however he escaped. In fear of the Empire arriving in their system, Rau allowed the members of the rebellion to pass through.
