Zolan was the homeworld of the Zolander species and its Clawdite offshoot. The Zolanders were loyal to the Galactic Republic, but the Clawdites were loyal to the Confederacy of Independent Systems, with the false hope the Confederacy would liberate them from Zolander oppression.
A visit to Zolan by a New Republic diplomat resulted in a local civil war. The Clawdites later overthrew the Zolander dominance of the planet and came to control 75% of the surface.
Shortly after the Yuuzhan Vong War began, Zolan joined the New Republic. About 100 Clawdites formed Guile Company, serving as infiltrators during the Yuuzhan Vong War. Guile Company remained intact until at least the end of the Swarm War.
Zolan was also notable as being the planet where the ancient order of Mabari knights was founded. The Zolanders only allowed small numbers of Clawdites to join the order.
