"A jungle world. Domed cities I see. Rodia it is."

Rodia was a remote swampy, jungle planet and the homeworld of the Rodians.[3] Cities on Rodia were encased with domed environmental shields that allowed entry and exit for vehicles and vessels.[1]

During the waning days of the Galactic Republic, the planet was represented in the Galactic Senate by Onaconda Farr. Republic supply ships on route to Rodia were destroyed by pirates, leading to many Rodians starving. At some point during the Clone Wars, Farr betrayed his old friend and ally Senator Padmé Amidala by luring her to Rodia and into the clutches of her old enemy, the Trade Federation viceroy, Nute Gunray, in exchange for the shipment of supplies, which the Republic had failed to deliver, to his planet. However, when Gunray stated his intentions to execute Amidala, and delay the delivery of Rodia's supplies, he realized his mistake and helped her escape. The two held Gunray at gunpoint and had him arrested. Supreme Chancellor Sheev Palpatine dispatched several supply convoys to Rodia upon learning of the dilemma.[1]

Bounty hunter Cad Bane was later assigned to Rodia by Darth Sidious to capture a Force-sensitive Rodian child. Jedi General Obi-Wan Kenobi arrived too late to prevent the child's kidnapping.[4]

By the time of the Galactic Civil War, Rodia had fallen under Imperial control. Shortly after the destruction of the first Death Star, Luke Skywalker took a luxury yacht, the Desert Jewel, to Rodia's Betu continent on a secret mission to establish a new source of weapons for the Rebel Alliance. He learned of a Rodian Jedi named Huulik who fought in the Clone Wars and visited a secret mausoleum deep in the jungle to honor Huulik.[2]
