Wyloff was a planet located within the Wyloff system of the Colonies. It was the sector capital of Wyloff sector, ruled by Moff Varnier and the homeworld of Imperial Colonel Ilo Jev. When Ilo's father, a broadcaster, exposed Varnier's lack of actual participation in governing Wyloff Sector, Varnier had the man executed. As a result, Ilo became a Rebel agent. Major Kerri Lessev of Imperial Intelligence, also a Rebel agent, ousted Varnier and many of his agents from power.
