Background: Arvala-7 was a remote desert planet with a barren, rocky surface and breathable atmosphere. During the New Republic Era, it was home to the Ugnaught Kuiil, who lived on a moisture farm with his blurrg. Sometime after Kuiil moved to the world, a group of Nikto mercenaries built an encampment, inside which they kept captive a youngling of the same species as the late Jedi Master Yoda.
Having accepted a contract to retrieve Grogu for his client, the Mandalorian bounty hunter Din Djarin traveled to Arvala-7 in his gunship, the Razor Crest. He met Kuiil after the Ugnaught saved him from a blurrg attack, and the farmer offered to help Djarin locate his quarry. Kuiil led Djarin to the mercenary encampment on blurrg mounts and left the Mandalorian to capture the asset on his own. With the help of IG-11, an IG-series assassin droid also working for the Bounty Hunters’ Guild, Djarin eliminated the Nikto and located Grogu. He then rescued the youngling from IG-11, who intended to kill him per the Client’s request.
Upon returning to the Razor Crest, Djarin discovered his ship had been scrapped by local Jawas for spare parts. With the help of Kuiil, the bounty hunter was able to negotiate a trade for the parts in exchange for a mudhorn egg. Djarin traveled into the cave where the mudhorn dwelt, and only managed to defeat the beast after Grogu used the Force to levitate it. With the egg handed over to the Jawas, Djarin was able to repair his ship and leave Arvala-7.
Djarin would later return to the planet with Carasynthia Dune to recruit Kuiil’s help in caring for Grogu while they went on a mission to the planet Nevarro. Kuiil agreed to come along only if IG-11, whom the Ugnaught had repaired and reprogrammed, and the blurrg were allowed to join. After Djarin reluctantly agreed, the newly-formed team departed for Nevarro.
