- "So... I see the war has finally made its way out here, and I guess I can expect a visit from some droids soon."
- ―Cut Lawquane
Saleucami was a planet located in the Outer Rim Territories. It's name meant "oasis". During the Clone Wars, its inhabitants wished to stay out of the conflict, though war would eventually reach the backwater planet. Although Republic forces were able to drive the Separatists from Saleucami, it became the site for one of the final battles of the war. Jedi Master Stass Allie was killed on her BARC speeder bike by Commander Neyo at the start of the Jedi Purge. It was the homeworld of Sergeant Warda Gojun of the Galactic Empire's 71st GAV Battalion.
During the Clone Wars, Clone trooper Cut Lawquane and his gunship crashed on Saleucami. There, Cut deserted from the Grand Army of the Republic when the battle droids executed his fellow troopers and fled. Cut then married Suu Lawquane, made a home for them and had 2 children there.
Confederate General Grievous and his fleet went to Saleucami along with his prisoner, Jedi Master Eeth Koth. There, Grievous awaited the arrival of Jedi Generals Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker. While Kenobi fought Grievous, Skywalker and Adi Gallia rescued Koth from Grievous's Recusant-class destroyer. Despite Skywalker and Gallia rescuing Koth, Grievous was able to escape from his duel with Kenobi. Grievous and his forces then attempted to land, but debris from Kenobi's light cruiser caused him and his battle droids to crash-land in Saleucami's wetlands aboard escape pods.
Grievous and what remained of his forces then regrouped and searched for intact escape pod. Kenobi landed several detachments of the 212th Battalion and 501st Legion to find Grievous. While Kenobi and Cody took the AT-TEs to find the escape pods, Rex and his men then took their BARC speeders through the wetlands. They then came under attack by two droid commando snipers. Rex was badly wounded and his men had to leave at the Lawquane farmstead. It was there Rex met Cut and believed that he should turn him in for desertion. However, when Cut's family and home came under attack by droid commandos, Rex decided to leave him with his family. Kenobi on the other hand, was unable to capture Grievous when he found an escape pod and made his escape.
