Rishi was a tropical planet in the Rishi system which was located in the Outer Rim Territories. The planet was the homeworld of the avian Rishii.


"Why you want to live in hot, humid lowlands? Mountains are much better."
―A Rishii questions non-Rishii settlers' choice of home location[src]

Rishi was a planet located in the Abrion sector of the Outer Rim Territories, along the Manda Merchant Route. It was also the endpoint of the only well-traveled hyperlane into the Rishi Maze, the Zareca String.[1]

Rishi's moon

Rishi orbited by its moon.

Rishi is the homeworld of the Rishii. The Rishii are a winged species, which live in nests on the mountains of Rishi.[4] The planet was home as well as a number of fundamentalist followers of the H'kig religion who colonized the planet.[9]

In addition to the lush tropical terrain, Rishi's surface featured mountains, valleys, and swamps. Human and alien colonists lived in the deep valleys, while the Rishii lived in the high mountains.[9] Many smugglers used this planet as a base because of the colonists' tolerance.[4]


"There's only one target of interest in this sector: Kamino. It's the closest thing we clones have to a home. Today we fight for more than the Republic. Today we fight for all our brothers back home."
Clone Captain Rex, to Echo, Fives, and Hevy[src]

During the Galactic War between the Galactic Republic and the Sith Empire, Rishi was the theater of the Battle of Rishi.[6]

In 60 BBY,[9] some 50,000 H'kig followers left the Core world of Galand and founded a religious colony on Rishi. However the group quickly dissolved in religious schism, with a minority who left the planet and settled another colony on J't'p'tan.[7]

Rishi mines attack

Clone troopers and Rishii warriors attack the Separatists.

The planet was known for its rich exonium mines, which the Confederacy of Independent Systems attempted to pillage during the Clone Wars. This invasion was repulsed by Kit Fisto, his clones, and the native Rishii.[8] During the Clone Wars, there was a small Republic listening post on Rishi's moon. Because of its close proximity to Kamino, Rishi was considered a last defense of the clone-producing planet. This base was used to warn the Republic fleet of any CIS ships entering the area. The base was attacked by the Confederate General Grievous and his forces during the war. The station was destroyed by CT-26-6958 when he sacrificed himself to alert the Republic Navy, forcing the Separatist fleet to retreat.[3]

During the Galactic Civil War, the smuggler Talon Karrde and his lieutenant Mara Jade had a base here, which became his main base of operations after his base at Myrkr was compromised during the Thrawn campaign. The base was quickly abandoned after the bounty hunter Gunner Groth discovered the presence of Karrde's smugglers on Rishi.[5]

Behind the scenesEdit

The PC game Star Wars: Rebellion mistakenly places Rishi in the Farfin sector (a misspelling of the true Farrfin sector) of the Core Worlds.
