The Godsheart was a pulsar—a rapidly rotating neutron star—that was located within the star system of the same name, in the Hutt Space region of the galaxy. The star lay off The Dead Road hyperlane. The pulsar was considered sacred by members of the sentient Hutt species, with some of them believing the star was connected to their species' destiny. For millennia in their ancient history, they made divinations that were based on the Godsheart's changing flashes. The Hutts also believed that the pulsar led them from their destroyed homeworld of Varl to their new home planet, Nal Hutta. Scientists and technicians of the Sakiyan species used a facility near the Godsheart to enrich the element graxitium.
Behind the scenesEdit
The Godsheart was first mentioned in The Essential Atlas, a 2009 reference book co-authored by Jason Fry and Daniel Wallace, which placed the star in grid square T-11. More information on the pulsar was presented in Lords of Nal Hutta—a 2015 sourcebook that served as a supplement to Fantasy Flight Games' Star Wars: Edge of the Empire roleplaying game.
