It was a barren, desert world, with only one city. At one point during its history, Jaguada was under the control of the Sith Empire. Around 550 BBY it was the location of a fortress constructed by Darth Gravid and Darth Gean.
During the Clone Wars, it allied itself with the Confederacy of Independent Systems. By the end of that conflict, however, the Galactic Republic had established a garrison of clone troopers on the planet.
