Rishi was a tropical planet in the Rishi system wich was located in the Outer Rim Territories. Rishi is the home of the Rishii. The Rishii are a winged species, wich lives in nests on the mountains of Rishi.
It was the endpoint of the only well-traveled hyperlane into the Rishi Maze. The planet was the homeworld of the avian Rishii, as well as a number of fundamentalist[source?] followers of the H'kig religion who colonized the planet in 60 BBY. Many smugglers used this planet as a base.
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. 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 during the Battle of Rishi. Because of its close proximity to Kamino, Rishi was considered a last defense of the clone-producing planet. During the Clone Wars, there was a small Republic base on Rishi's only apparent moon. This base was used to warn the Republic fleet of any CIS ships entering the area that posed a threat.
