Background: Hypori (pronounced /haɪ’poɹi/) was a planet located in the Hypori system of the Ferra sector in the Outer Rim Territories. It was home to no sentient species, though it was host to windrails and massiffs. Its surface was covered in rocky landscapes and small oceans.
During the Galactic War between the Galactic Republic and the reconstituted Sith Empire, a battle took place over the planet. In 37 BBY, the Zabrak Darth Maul spent a month on Hypori with no food or water under command from his master, Darth Sidious. Left to face a horde of assassin droids, Maul survived, dueling his master at the end and losing. He gained the admiration of Sidious, however, and was given the title of Sith Lord. After the Invasion of Naboo in 32 BBY, Hypori was transformed into a droid factory world by the Techno Union and Trade Federation, with its purpose being to manufacture battle droids for the upcoming Clone Wars.
After the onset of the Clone Wars, the planet was the site of the Battle of Hypori, during which the Jedi Daakman Barrek, Sha’a Gi, Ki-Adi-Mundi, Shaak Ti, K’Kruhk, Tarr Seirr, and Aayla Secura fought against General Grievous and a large army of super battle droids. The Grand Army of the Republic was defeated, and only four of the Jedi survived, rescued by The Muunilinst 10 in their Republic gunship. During the Galactic Civil War between the Galactic Empire and the Alliance to Restore the Republic, Hypori came under the control of Tyber Zann and the Zann Consortium after the criminal empire took it from Jabba the Hutt.
