Xerton Nine was an astronomical object that occupied the ninth orbital position[3] within the Xerton system[2] of Wild Space.[1] At some point following the Battle of Endor[3] that occurred in 4 ABY,[4] the Grand Magnus was a title held by an individual from Xerton Nine.[3]

In a scandoc outlining mercenary tactics that was released around that time, the former New Republic military colonel Andrephan Stormcaller mentioned that a mercenary using proper forged documentation, especially one produced by an ID processor, could impersonate anyone, from an Imperial customs inspector to the Grand Magnus from Xerton Nine.[3]

Behind the scenesEdit

Xerton Nine was first mentioned in "Blasters for Hire," a 1994 Star Wars: The Roleplaying Game source article written by Anthony P. Russo and published in Star Wars Adventure Journal 3.[3] The 2009 reference book The Essential Atlas placed the Xerton system, and therefore Xerton Nine, in grid square J-3.[1]
