"If there is a dark side to this galaxy, Socorro is on the hind side of it. Far beyond the notice of dominions large and faceless—where a man's word and the sweat of his brow are worth more than his scrip. This is truly a most splendid place to be."
Kirr Cyrs[src]

Socorro was a planet in the Outer Rim Territories with a reputation as a smuggler haven.

DescriptionEdit

The Socorran flag

Located between Coyn and Tatooine, and near Duunir, Iyred, Omman, Redcap, and the Nodgra system, Socorro was home to the ferocious Monnoks, as well as several nomadic groups: the Ibhaan'I, Bharhulai, Ndowi, and Asilyr. It was also the homeworld of Lando Calrissian and Qu Rahn. Its deserts were composed of distinctive black sand. The name "Socorro" in Old Corellian meant "scorched earth."

Some locations on Socorro included the Asilyr Tribal Lands, the Bharhulai Tribal Lands, Cjaalysce'I the Doaba Badlands, the Ibhaan'I Tribal Lands, the Ndowi Tribal Lands, Norble, and Madra. Between the Rym Mountains and the city of Vakeyya was the Judges of the Dead, which was considered by many Socorrans to be a shrine.

HistoryEdit

Corellians colonized the planet in 3000 BBY, though only four of their original six colony ships were believed to have survived. The Bharhulai tribe was a hostile group that dwelt in Socorro's dangerous northern polar region.

Socorro was the location of a Jedi academy where Jedi would train to become a Jedi Guardians. It was a favorite of Jedi Ace Crix Sunburris during the New Sith Wars. A thousand years later, Darth Sidious would use The Jedi Path: A Manual for Students of the Force to locate and destroy the academy and the Jedi who were stationed in it.[7]

A young Han Solo may have met Quinlan Vos on Socorro roughly a decade before the Battle of Yavin.

In 137 ABY, Socorro was the headquarters of the pirate Feeorin Rav. It was there that Cade Skywalker captured Jedi Hosk Trey'lis for Rav. Meanwhile, Darth Talon attacked the Imperial Mission temple on Socorro to drive Princess Marasiah Fel to her father or for him to come to her. Darth Talon killed the Imperial Knight Elke Vetter at the temple. Marasiah Fel was eventually rescued by Cade Skywalker.[4]
