The Karthakk system, also known as Maramere system, was a star system in the Outer Rim Territories, containing planets including Lok, Nod Kartha and the Maramere homeworld of sentient Mere species. It centered around the star Karthakk.
Prior to the Invasion of Naboo, the Trade Federation occupied the system, using it as a testing ground for its new droid starfighters. The local pirate Nym, operating out of a base on Lok, fought back against the Federation, though in the process was forced to abandon his outpost to the enemy. Nym continued to battle the Federation for control of the Karthakk system for the next ten years, and, with the help of Adi Gallia, eventually seized his base back from the droid forces. After this event, Adi Gallia was appointed as Nym's Personal Jedi Advisor of the Karthakk System to help stabilize the inhabitants of Maramere and Lok from the Trade Federation's occupation.
During the Clone Wars, the Karthakk system became a battleground once more. Aboard Drama Korr's space yacht above Maramere, Jedi Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker fought against the bounty hunter Durge. After an arduous duel, Anakin trapped Durge inside an escape pod, and blasted him into the system's star, Karthakk.
In the early years of the Galactic Empire, the Tantive IV was performing test launches of its escape pods in the Karthakk system when a pirate group attacked, forcing the consular ship to abandon its pods as it fled. The droids R2-D2 and C-3PO were later discovered to have been aboard one of those pods.
