- «That doesn't sound good. How angry will Princess Leia be?»
«That depends on what he's smashing. If it's the singing lamp the Jumerians gave her as a wedding present, she might even thank him. Let's just hope he hasn't broken Han's bottle of Ithorian Mist. That would be bad.»

The Jumerians were a sentient species from the Jumeria system of the Core Worlds. The area around the Jumerians' homeworld was explored sometime between 27,500 BBY and 20,000 BBY, and the region was traditionally affiliated with the Human species, who held sway in the Core as early as 25,100 BBY. The Galactic Republic, whose reign would begin only decades later, clamed the area around Jumeria throughout its twenty-five millennia of existence. The Jumerians were later members of the New Republic. By 8 ABY, they had presented Princess Leia Organa Solo with a singing lamp as a wedding gift. Although she found the item repugnant, she kept it in the Coruscanti apartment she shared with her husband, Han Solo. Dark Lord of the Sith Darth Krayt's Galactic Empire claimed the region around the Jumerian homeworld in the year 137 ABY.
Behind the scenesEdit
Jumerians were mentioned in an eBook novel, A Forest Apart, written by Troy Denning and published in 2003. The original source did not make it clear whether the Jumerians were a species or a social group of some kind. However, in 2008, The Complete Star Wars Encyclopedia included a Jumerian entry copied almost directly from the Star Wars wiki Wookieepedia, whose article on the subject assumed without reference that they were a species. This thereby became canonical.
