- "Listen, pal, in case it ain't occurred to you, it's all over for Nar Shaddaa. Moff Sam Shild has probably already ordered his fleet to assemble out near Teth. We're shakin' the dust of that miserable excuse for a moon off our feet for good."
- ―Han Solo
Teth was the third planet that orbited the star and had three moons that orbited the planet itself. It was located within the Teth system of the Baxel sector in the outer border of the Outer Rim region of the galaxy that crossed over into the Wild Space region.
Once a prominent vacation world for the Hutts, Teth suffered an economic crisis when the Galactic Republic began crack downs against the criminals housed on-planet. Prior to the Clone Wars, Jedi Master Plo Koon helped local constable Janu Godalhi capture pirates as part of the Republic crackdown, futher driving the Hutts out.
- "Teth? That's Wild Space. The droid army isn't even in that sector."
- ―Anakin Skywalker
It was home to a B'omarr Monastery-turned-fortress on a mesa that served as a hideout for Confederate agents who kidnapped Rotta the Huttlet. The monastery was later the site of a large battle between Republic and Separatist forces during the Clone Wars. The battle was fought up a cliff, in which the Republic's primary weapon were standard AT-TE Walkers, which they used to climb up to the fortress. Upon reaching the top, Anakin Skywalker and Ahsoka Tano recovered the missing Huttlet. Later, Ahsoka and Anakin found the Twilight on an adjacent cliff, and used it to transport Rotta the Huttlet back to Tatooine.
Later in the war, Ziro the Hutt visited his father's hidden grave located on the planet. He used the site to hide a holo-journal containing information about the Hutt Grand Council's illegal dealings. As he recovered the journal, Ziro was betrayed by his girlfriend Sy Snootles, who shot him dead and took the journal to Jabba Desilijic Tiure, her employer.
Having ridden itself from the criminal gangs and mercenaries due to the efforts of its overmatched local constabulary and the Republic, it became the capital of the Baxel sector under Moff Sarn Shild, which gave (in theory) control of Hutt Space and to make a bulwark against the local Hutts' schemes; the Galactic Empire built the capital Peroon, a naval base and small shipyard and made the planet an agriworld.
The Hutts however reacted with investments, threats and bribery and created a criminal underground on the planet, exploiting a portion of the harvest income.
Galactic Civil WarEdit
It was also the location of an early Rebel cell. It was apparently a significant one too, as the Corellian Rebels were willing to risk sending the valued commander Bria Tharen across the galaxy (a dangerous endeavor, especially during the early days of the Galactic Civil War) to make contact with them.
The Tethan Rebels declined to join an outright alliance, but were willing to step-up attacks on Imperial targets like supply dumps and ships coming to and from the Corporate Sector and help funnel the proceeds to their coreward brethren.
After the Empire's fall, the Hutts returned to the planet, which by then it was made more interesting and richer by the Empire.
