Vaenrood was a planet in the Vaenrood system, which was located in the Pakuuni sector of the Outer Rim Territories. Several months before the liberation of Kal'Shebbol, capital of the Kathol sector, the New Republic fought the Galactic Empire on Vaenrood.
Several months before their campaign to oust warlord Moff Kentor Sarne from his capital on the planet Kal'Shebbol in the Kathol sector, the New Republic battled Imperial forces on Vaenrood. New Republic ground troops engaged Imperial units in a mountainous area, with T-65 X-wing starfighters flying air support. During the fighting, one X-wing—piloted by Darryn Thyte—was clipped by Imperial artillery fire and crashed. Thyte survived the impact, but lost most of his right arm when the canopy of his fighter sheared through the limb above the elbow.
