Er'Kit was a desert planet located in the Outer Rim Territories of the galaxy. It was the homeworld of the Er'Kit species. Before the outbreak of the Clone Wars, Er'Kit senator Danry Ledwellow took bribes from Thalassian slavers, allowing them to use his planet for their illicit activities in exchange for a private army of IG-227 Hailfire-class droid tanks.
During the Galactic Civil War, Saponza and his partner traveled to Er'Kit to quash the slaver group Blood Dawn. They were helped by the Er'Kit Dyro Felldor; however, Felldor had plans of his own and eventually betrayed them.
