"I was under the impression that Darth Maul's home world was Iridonia."
"Dathomir is the planet where Maul was raised. Iridonia is where the rest of the males of the species dwell."
―Obi-Wan Kenobi and Mace Windu[src]

Iridonia was a planet that was the homeworld of the near-human Zabrak species.[1] Jedi Master Obi-Wan Kenobi mistakenly believed the Dathomirian Zabrak Darth Maul was born there, when in fact he was born on the planet Dathomir, which was home to a tribal group of male Zabrak known as the Nightbrothers.[2] Iridonia was the homeworld of the Zabrak bounty hunter Sugi[3] and her niece Jas Emari, though the latter of whom considered the planet to be brutal and unforgiving.[4]

Behind the scenesEdit

Iridonia was first mentioned in the 2000 Star Wars Legends novel Star Wars Episode I Journal: Darth Maul,[5] though it did not actually make an appearance until the 2003 Legends comic Phantom Menaces,[6] which was released as part of Star Wars Tales 17.[7] Iridonia was later mentioned in "Witches of the Mist," the fourteenth episode of the third season of the canon animated television series Star Wars: The Clone Wars, establishing it as official Star Wars canon.[2] Its status as a planet and the homeworld of the Zabrak species was made canon by the 2014 young readers activity book Ultimate Factivity Collection: Star Wars.[1]
