Manaan was an ocean planet located in the galaxy's Inner Rim that was the homeworld of the Selkath species, which had been historically devoted to the care of their native oceans. The Selkath bounty hunters Mantu and Chata Hyoki hailed from Manaan.
Behind the scenesEdit
Manaan first appeared in Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic, a Star Wars Legends roleplaying game developed by BioWare that was released on July 15, 2003. It became canon when it was mentioned in Mantu's entry of the now-discontinued Encyclopedia on StarWars.com, which was carried over to its replacement, the Databank. Manaan's status as a planet and homeworld of the Selkath species was made canon by its entry in the Databank. Manaan later appeared on the galaxy map included in the Star Wars: The Force Awakens Beginner Game, which was released in August of 2016. The roleplaying game placed the planet in grid square O-11.
On February 19, 2016, a Star Wars-inspired compilation album titled Star Wars Headspace was released, and it featured a track named "Sunset Over Manaan," which was recorded by the house producer ATTLAS.
