- "I realize that you have been successful in shipping lommite through Malastare, and circling around Bestine to reach Fondor and the Core. But where will Eriadu be when Fondor opts to join the Confederacy?"
"Opts to join, or falls to you?"
- ―Dooku unsuccessfully tries to persuade Tarkin to pledge Eriadu to the Confederacy
Fondor was a planet located in the Colonies region which Eriadu shipped lommite to via the planet Malastare. Shortly prior to the Clone Wars, Count Dooku, the leader of the Confederacy of Independent Systems visited Eriadu's Governor Willhuff Tarkin and tried to persuade him to side Eriadu with the Confederacy in the coming war, claiming that Fondor would side with them instead of the Galactic Republic. Tarkin doubted that Fondor would join willingly, suspecting the Confederacy might capture the world by force, and ultimately rejected the offer, siding with the Republic who later emerged victorious in the war and reformed into the Galactic Empire. Around five years after the Empire's formation, the Imperial-class Star Destroyer Sovereign was stationed at Fondor with Commander Abel LaSal stationed onboard.
Behind the scenesEdit
Fondor was first mentioned in the Star Wars Legends novel Han Solo at Stars' End, which was written by Brian Daley and released in 1979. The world was confirmed to be canon by the novel Tarkin, which was written by James Luceno and released in 2015.
