The Hero of Cularin was a medal given in the Cularin system, to those who went beyond the call of duty to protect the system, and risked their own lives while doing so. It was considered the highest honor that could be bestowed on a citizen of the Cularin system.

The physical medal was forged on gold and overlaid with platinum and several red and orange gems.

The medal increased the bearers's reputation, easying their access to obtain legitimate resources. It could also be used as a recommendation for a promotion in any branch of the Cularin Militia.

The heroes who defeated Phylus Mon in 22 BBY were awarded the Hero of Cularin by Senior Counselor Sa'arli on behalf of Senator Lavina Durada-Vashne Wren.
