Praesitlyn was a forested planet in the Sluis sector of the Outer Rim. It was the location of the Intergalactic Communications Center, which acted as a key HoloNet hub for the Galactic Republic, Galactic Empire, and New Republic. The center was located 150 kilometers from the center of a major continent. The planet was buffeted by sudden dust storms.


In the first weeks of the Clone Wars, the Confederacy of Independent Systems made an early attempt to conquer Praesitlyn and the communications center. A fleet under the commander of Admiral Pors Tonith invaded the system, but was opposed by the Praesitlyn Defense Force, the Sons and Daughters of Freedom mercenary group led by Zozridor Slayke, and clone trooper reinforcements led by Anakin Skywalker, Obi-Wan Kenobi, and Nejaa Halcyon. In several weeks of fighting, the Separatists were expelled in the Battle of Praesitlyn, leading to Anakin Skywalker's elevation to Jedi Knight.[2][3]

Republic defeats later in the war meant that the Sluis sector was almost entirely lost to the Confederacy, and Praesitlyn became a major Separatist stronghold. As a result, one of the main theaters of the Outer Rim Sieges was named after the planet due to its importance to the Separatist cause.[1]

By the time of the establishment of the Jedi Praxeum on Yavin 4, Praesitlyn was represented in the New Republic Senate by Zilar.

Behind the scenesEdit

The PC game Star Wars: Rebellion mistakenly places the Sluis sector and, consequently, Praesitlyn, in the Core Worlds.
