- "Another armed occupation is not a free Ryloth. How long before I am fighting you, Master Jedi?"
- ―Cham Syndulla, to Mace Windu
Ryloth was a planet in the Ryloth system of the Outer Rim Territories, and the homeworld of the Twi'lek species. Its terrain varied, filled with jungles, mesas, valleys, and volcanoes, and had an atmosphere breathable for Twi'leks and humans alike. A forest covered its equator, filled with dangerous predators. Given the varied and dangerous terrain, Twi'leks lived in caves underground where it was safer.
In the years preceding the Clone Wars, Count Dooku secretly backed coups on Ryloth as part of larger political attempts to seed discontent in the galaxy's Outer Systems during the Separatist Crisis. Upon the declaration of war between the Confederacy of Independent Systems and the Galactic Republic, Ryloth was invaded by the Separatist Droid Army, however was ultimately repelled by the Galactic Republic, Jedi Order, and Twi'lek Resistance, the latter of which was led by freedom fighter Cham Syndulla.
After the Clone Wars ended, Ryloth officially became a protectorate of the Galactic Empire. It was classed as free and independent, although that did not reflect reality as it was under the rule of the Empire, something which would cause a rebellion against its reign. Four years after the proclamation of the New Order, Darth Sidious and Lord Vader became trapped on the planet after the destruction of the Imperial-class Star Destroyer Perilous over the planet in an attempt to assassinate the Empire's political leadership, a move designed by Cham Syndulla's reorganized Free Ryloth movement.
